Ron Howard and Paul Bettany On Han Solo Set

You have to hand it to Ron Howard for handling the Han Solo Star Wars spinoff as well as he is. For one thing, he is a bit more transparent, giving fans a look at everything that is going on behind the scenes, even he is releasing meaningless photos of craft food services. But for what it’s worth we are getting better looks at the set than we ever did before. But these reshoots have forced Michael K. William‘s character to be cut out of the entire film. While we knew he would have played “a half-human, half-animal” who was a “kick-ass character,” cutting his character seemed to indicate it wasn’t of major significance.

However, it appears that the character does hold some weight in the film. So much so that Howard turned to a reliable friend to act as William’s replacement. With a few caveats of course. That actor is a Beautiful Mind star Paul Bettany, whom you may know as Vision in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. More on the story below.

Untitled Han Solo Movie Cast Photo

While the plot of Lucasfilm’s still very much untitled Han Solo spinoff remains under wraps, it appears that we won’t know how one character plays a role in the origins story.

Because of an intense schedule and the odd timing off these reshoots, Michael K. Williams‘ character had to be cut. For more on his reaction and what he expects to see, check out the full story below.

Michael Fassbender in Assassin's Creed Movie

20th Century Fox has released a second trailer for Assassin’s Creed, the movie adaptation of the hit video game series of the same name. The first trailer was released back in May.

This new trailer is longer than the first trailer and dives more into the time when the character Callum Lynch (Michael Fassbender) is getting acquainted with the mysterious corporation Abstergo and their virtual reality machine the Animus, mixed with some glimpses of his time inside the Animus itself where he experiences the life of his ancestor, the assassin Aguilar, over 500 years in the past.

You can read an official plot synopsis for the movie and watch the new trailer below.

Assassin's Creed Starring Michael Fassbender

The first official trailer for Assassin’s Creed, the movie based on the hit video game franchise of the same name starring Michael Fassbender, has been released online by 20th Century Fox.

In the movie, much like in the games, Fassbender’s character Callum Lynch re-lives the memories of one of his ancestors, an assassin from 15th century Spain named Aguilar, using a special machine called the Animus from the corporation Abstergo Industries.

Michael Fassbender Assassin's Creed Header Image

Yesterday, we were offered our first official look at Assassin’s Creed, 20th Century Fox’s big screen adaptation of the popular video game of the same name starring Michael Fassbender as Callum Lynch. It has been confirmed that the film adaptation would take place in the same universe as the video game, but will be a separate story. Fassbender reunites with his Macbeth director, Justin Kurzel, as well as Macbeth co-star Marion Cotillard.

Since the film is based on the same premise as the video game the film is based on, we will definitely be seeing Lynch as a descendant of a long line of Assassins. And these two new images are a reflection of that. Check out the two new images below.

Another new image has been released from the Ghostbusters reboot, this time giving us our first look at the new Ecto-1, the official vehicle the team uses to go and take care of all of those spectral nuisances around the city. About a week ago we got to see what the group’s uniforms and the new proton pack would look like in the movie.

The image was once again shared by director Paul Feig via Twitter along with the hashtag #whattheygonnadrive, and you can check it out below.

Paul Feig’s ‘Ghostbusters’ Adds Neil Casey As Villain

Neil Casey

The newly rebooted Ghostbusters is currently under production as we speak. Paul Feig is directing the new female-driven reboot of the classic comedy using a script he co-wrote with Kate Dippold. The film’s cast has a fantastic blend of comedians which consist of Kristen Wigg, Melissa McCarthy, Kate McKinnon, and Leslie Jones. Just yesterday, the film added Michael K. Williams, Andy Garcia, and Matt Walsh to the cast, and it’s rumored that Saturday Night Live‘s Cecily Strong was also added.

An impressive comedic cast, which is only going to get stronger with the addition of Neil Casey. If that name does not ring a bell that’s fine; he’s known more for his behind-the-scenes work as a writer for various comedies, but has also spent some time in front of the camera. More on him and his character below.

‘The Gambler’ Red Band Trailer: Mark Wahlberg and John Goodman Exchange Four-Letter Expletives

The Gambler starring Mark Wahlberg

Those who have been waiting for a great trailer to talk about, your wait ends here. Paramount Pictures has just debuted the teaser trailer for Rupert Wyatt‘s The Gambler, starring Mark Wahlberg as a literature professor who moonlights as a high-rolling gambler. The film is actually a remake of the 1974 drama of the same name.

Now we’ve all seen remakes and films about gambling before, but this teaser really sets the bar pretty high with limited footage and choice words. And because we see so very little of the film in this trailer, which runs under two minutes, we get more compelling drama and more reasons to watch the trailer over and over again. But beware, the trailer doesn’t hold back on a certain four-letter word, so I suggest you put some headphones on or wait until you find some privacy to see it. Hit the jump to check it out.

‘The Purge 3’ Officially Confirmed; James DeMonaco To Write, Direct

The Purge: Anarchy

The Purge film franchise is probably one of the most profitable franchises we have seen in recent years. The Purge was made on a $3 million budget and earned a lifetime total of $89.3 at the box office, while The Purge: Anarchy was made on a $9 million budget and earned $108 million at the box office. Pretty impressive numbers for both films considering they were made on a six-figure budget. So Universal hopes to strike gold again with The Purge 3. Not only that but James Demonaco, who wrote and directed the first two films, will return to serve as writer and director once more.

The Purge is set in America, where a newly established government helped lower crime to an all-time low, raised the number of jobs to an all time high, and poverty is no where in sight. All of that is thanks to an annual event called “The Purge.” During this time, all crime is legal for 12 hours. In the first film, we focus on the family, whose riches couldn’t even protect them inevitable bloodshed. The second one however, flip that story on its head and focused on a group who couldn’t afford the luxury of a high-powered defense system, and a man who had a vendetta.

The Purge: Anarchy review header

The Purge: Anarchy
Written & Directed by James DeMonaco
Starring Frank Grillo, Carmen Ejogo, Zoe Soul, Michael K. Williams, Zach Gilford
Universal Pictures
Rated R | 103 Minutes
Release Date: July 18, 2014

Review by Yasin Lago

The first Purge film was a concept and box office windfall that took folks by surprise, so much so that it seemed to demand a sequel. True or not, here it is with The Purge: Anarchy. The original played as the suburban-style stuck-in-the-house-with-strangers scenario. This time out the story is told throughout the city, with downtown L.A. as an open set location. Of course that means expanding and expounding on violent crimes committed by seemingly demonic-like phantoms strolling from murder to murder, as well as the class war, slightly hinted at in the previous, which is the focus of this film.
