On Saturday, Oscar-winning director and influential filmmaker Milos Forman passed away. The Czech director, whose parents were killed in Nazi concentration camps during World War II, had long been fascinated with cinema and the theater. His filmography includes such classics as One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest; the 1979 comedy musical Hair, eight-time Oscar-winning film Amadeus, ’90s biopics The People vs. Larry Flynt and Man on the Moon, and the underrated 1967 Czech comedy, The Firemen’s Ball.
Disney has released a new look at Solo: A Star Wars Story by way of an extended TV spot. The second Star Wars spin-off chronicles the origin story of Han Solo, charting his beginnings as a smuggler and the relationships that paved the way for his colorful personality. The movie is set for release on May 25th.
Rampage won out at the box office this weekend after all as many analysts had the Warner Bros. film falling short of expectations and potentially losing out on the top spot to John Krasinski’s smash horror hit A Quiet Place.
Per Deadline, Tim Miller has found his new Terminator and his new lead. Matador and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. star Gabriel Luna, who played Ghost Rider in the ABC Marvel series, will be the new Terminator for the film, starring opposite Colombian actress Natalia Reyes.
According to The Daily Mail Ed Sheeran is in talks to join the cast of Oscar-winning Slumdog Millionaire filmmaker Danny Boyle’s upcoming musical comedy from Working Title.
