that Hughes himself was overtaken by and the film becomes very depressive and oppressive. Where you think it will be light and fluffy and full of '50s jazz numbers, it isn't. The romance between Lily Collins and Alden Ehrenreich, the chauffeur and the starlet, it is overshadowed by Beatty's own performance and perhaps his own ego overtaking his own film, which is quite a Howard Hughes.

Woody Harrelson is giving up a few tidbits about his upcoming Star Wars role. While the cast photo makes it clear that Harrelson has a role in the upcoming Star Wars spin-off about the life of the young Han Solo, few details are known about the film let alone Harrelsons role in it. When he stopped by The Tonight Show on Wednesday, Jimmy Fallon was determined to get some answers out of him, and while Harrelson skillfully avoided spilling the beans, he did drop some promising details. Im playing a guy named Beckett, who is kind of a criminal, and I am a mentor to Han, he said, adding: Thats all I can say. When Fallon sneakily put the cast photo in front of him, Harrelson wouldnt confirm or deny that the cast, which includes Alden Ehrenreich as Han Solo and Donald Glover as a young Lando Calrissian, were sitting on Solos ship the Millennium Falcon.

by Sarah Weldon Well, there you have it: Chris Miller, the co-director of the new Han Solo-centered Star Wars spin-off, has thrown his answer in the ring regarding George Lucas's controversial and oft-debated edits to the 1997 re-release of A New Hope: Han First Shot pic.twitter.com/KReR6rgKFTChris Miller (@chrizmillr) January 30, 2017 Okay, okay: It's probably just a pun to mark the first day of shooting on the spin-off film. But come on, of course Han shot first . The Solo-centric film is set to be released next year, with Hail Caesar! star Alden Ehrenreich front and center as a young Solo and Atlanta 's Donald Glover taking on the role of Lando Calrissian. Woody Harrelson and Emilia Clarke are also involved in the project. Phil Lord will direct alongside Miller; the two have worked together on 21 Jump Street , The LEGO Movie , and their respective sequels. And no, the title of the new film is not Star Wars: Red Cup . The film is still officially nameless —though it is certainly not pun-less .

British actor Jack Huston's grandfather, the legendary filmmaker John Huston, once had a movie about psychological trauma among soldiers banned because of its anti-war message. The double Oscar-winner reacted furiously when "Let There Be Light" was confiscated by US military police, saying he'd expect "someone to take me outside and shoot me" if he ever made a pro-war film, according to his 34-year-old grandson. "That sentiment stands today. I never really had any interest in making a war movie because I found a lot of instances where they glorified war," the younger Huston tells AFP. The actor nevertheless finds himself this year as one of the stars alongside Jennifer Aniston and Alden Ehrenreich in The Yellow Birds," a movie about the terrors of fighting in Iraq. "This movie doesn't glorify war. It's very honest," Huston tells AFP ahead of its world premiere at the Sundance Film Festival on Saturday.
