Woody Harrelson Confirms His Role as a Mentor to Han Solo

Just yesterday, Woody Harrelson officially joined the cast of the young Han Solo film which is getting underway at Pinewood studios in London. The actor has been rumored to play a character who serves as a mentor to the slimy no good swindler but until now that has remained just a rumor.

In a recent chat with Mashable on Facebook, Harrelson confirmed he would indeed be a mentor to Solo but also revealed a new tidbit regarding the character:

“I’m a mentor to Han, but I’m also a bit of a criminal. I don’t think I should say much more than that because the Force is not allowing me.”

Harrelson joins the cast with Alden Ehrenreich starring as the young Han Solo as well as Donald Glover as the young Lando Calrissian. Emilia Clarke also joined the cast recently in a role that is still currently unknown. President of Lucasfilm, Kathleen Kennedy has described the young Han Solo film as a western with a color palette influenced by the paintings of Frederic Remington. The script has been penned by Star Wars writing veteran Lawrence Kasdan and son Jon Kasdan. With cinematographer Bradford Young on board, the film has the potential to have a bold look and feel that could strike a perfect balance between humor and drama.

The Untitled Han Solo Story is slated to hit theaters May 25, 2018, however, there is a rumor the film could be shifted to December 13, 2018.

Gamora Confirmed to Appear in ‘Avengers: Infinity War’

Screen Shot 2017-01-09 at 5.13.34 PM.png

Last night at the Golden Globes, Zoe Saldana herself confirmed she would indeed appear as Gamora in the upcoming Avengers: Infinity War while speaking with MTV News, however, the actress revealed she yet to see the script:

“I don’t know when they’re gonna let me read it. I mean, I’m not looking forward to the five hours of green make-up, but every time I finally arrive on set I feel so happy and lucky to be there.”

The film which isn’t due out until May 4, 2018, will undoubtedly be the biggest and most expensive Marvel film in history. At this point, the film is overflowing with characters and if it wasn’t for the fact that The Russo Brothers are at the helm I’d be worried. But the Russo’s already proved with Captain America: Civil War that they can jam pack a film full of superheroes and keep the film well balanced and focused while using each and every superhero effectively.

During tonight’s 74th Annual Golden Globes, Disney dropped a new TV spot for the upcoming live-action remake of Beauty and the Beast featuring more of Emma Watson singing as Belle and it sounds absolutely fantastic.

In this live-action re-imagining of the fairy tale, a young woman (Emma Watson) takes her father’s place as prisoner in a beast’s castle, only to fall in love with her beastly captor (Dan Stevens), who turns out to be a prince.

Screen Shot 2017-01-05 at 6.56.16 PM.png

Marvel has released the first official behind the scenes look at the upcoming third outing for the Asgardian hero titled Thor: Ragnarok. The photo features Chris Hemsworth being directed by Taika Waititi. The film has been rumored to be a sort of buddy cop road movie in space featuring Thor and Hulk but thanks to the release of the film’s official synopsis, it seems the two will instead be pitted against each other.

“In Marvel Studios’ Thor: Ragnarok, Thor is imprisoned on the other side of the universe without his mighty hammer and finds himself in a race against time to get back to Asgard to stop Ragnarok — the destruction of his homeworld and the end of Asgardian civilization — at the hands of an all-powerful new threat, the ruthless Hela. But first he must survive a deadly gladiatorial contest that pits him against his former ally and fellow Avenger — the Incredible Hulk!”

The film stars Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, Idris Elba, Anthony Hopkins, Cate Blanchett, Tessa Thompson, Jeff Goldblum, Karl Urban and Mark Ruffalo. Written by Stephen Folsom, Craig Kyle, Eric Pearson, and Christopher Yost. Directed by Taika Waititi.
