Woody Harrelson and Thandie Newton prefer Westworld to Star Wars

  • Solo's Alden Ehrenreich is the loveable rogue we all hoped he would

As long as you don't go in with your expectations set to rival a main Star Wars film, you'll have a fun time finding out some history behind the iconic Han Solo, and also the fates of some characters we haven't seen before. Some are overt, such as the backstory of how Solo got the Millennium Falcon or what that "Kessel Run" he brags about in "Star Wars" was all about.

Many of them will bring smiles to the faces of fans, such as an exchange that ends with the answer "I know" and a gunfight that makes you wonder who shot first. Respected director Ron Howard helms this brand new action-filled tale, taken from the start of the original Star Wars storyline. She recently visited the studios of my Deadline video series The Actor's Side to talk Westworld, Star Wars and a career in which she clearly enjoys taking on challenges and meeting them brilliantly. "It's kind of wonderful how much of a single continuous whole it feels like". For a minute he had the swagger of Han Solo. Working under the thumb of crime boss Dryden Vos (Paul Bettany as a literal Scarface) and his top lieutenant and Han's old flame, Qi'ra (Emilia Clarke), there's a thrilling twist on the train robbery, narrow escapes and double crosses galore. Sure, everybody loves Han Solo, but when the first footage of Glover sporting some killer capes surfaced, the demand and excitement for a Lando movie only increased tenfold. The same applies to Glover's interpretation of a younger Lando, who doesn't exactly become fast friends with Han but perhaps sees a little of himself in this arrogant up-and-comer. However, I have a bone to pick when it comes to the House of Mouse and queer representation.

Glover said he finds nothing odd about the character being pansexual. The established characters are all beautifully portrayed and there are some great Star Wars moments in this movie that fans have imagined since back in 1977.

The tentpole is the first of the four titles in the revitalized Star Wars franchise to fearless the summer box office.

Israel Wins Russia Concession to Move Iran, Hezbollah from Syria-Israel Border
The US's presence in Syria is not sanctioned under global law. Lieberman wrote on social media, after meeting with Mr. Shoigu at the Kremlin on Thursday.

"I felt like it hit the sweet spot of being something that everybody could understand, but also being true to the world".

Kathleen Kennedy, head of Lucasfilm, has expressed her thoughts on whether LGBTQ representation needs improvements within the Star Wars franchise-a thing the Star Trek universe has been more progressive about.

Howard liked the change so much he actually included the small scene in the final cut of the movie.
