The first photo from the set of the Han Solo spinoff movie is finally here. After revealing that the upcoming Star Wars Story will star Alden Ehrenreich as young Han alongside a supporting cast featuring Donald Glover, Emilia Clarke and Woody Harrelson, Disney announced that production was officially underway with a Tuesday press release that included a photo of the film's principal actors as well as directors Phil Lord and Christopher Miller inside the cockpit of the Millennium Falcon. Watching such inspired people from all over the world, with such unique voices, come together for the sole purpose of making art, is nothing short of miraculous, Lord and Miller said. We cant think of anything funny to say, because we just feel really moved, and really lucky. Shooting has begun on the Han Solo #StarWars moviehere's the proof! https://t.co/dj8VCtL2Jv Entertainment Weekly (@EW) February 21, 2017 The still-untitled spinoff is set to hit theaters May 25, 2018.

If you thought the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics was boring, just look at how pop culturally relevant they've become with their latest blog post . Although the latest Hunger Games movie came out months ago , the Bureau took its own data on employment (based on industries, occupation, employment numbers and geography) to figure out the eternal question of how the dystopian future country of Panem from the book and film series lines up with the real U.S. geography. SEE ALSO: Woody Harrelson joins young Han Solo movie The books (and film adaptations) have made it clear that the 12 "districts" somewhat align with certain states and regions in the current U.S. geographic layout. Ever since the books came out nearly 10 years ago, many maps have attempted to show what Panem looks like. Read more... More about Panem , Employment , Jobs , Industry , and Data

Woody Harrelson is the writer, producer, and star of Lost in London, a 90-minute feature film that was shown live in theaters as it was filmed on January 19, 2017. The story was inspired by a 2002 incident in which Harrelson broke an ashtray in the back of a London cab late one night, then attempted to get away in a second cab before running from police on foot. He spent the night in jail. “It really was one of the worst nights I’ve had,” Harrelson told Vice News. “And I dont know why I later thought, comedy! You know, this thing could be a disaster.” The film’s cast also features Owen Wilson and Willie Nelsonplaying themselves. VICE News met up with Harrelson on-set to see him prepare for the big night.

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 .

Movies about the American space program almost always feature white men, but Hidden Figures centers around the life of Katherine Johnson, who’s played by Taraji P. Henson. Hidden Figures tells the true story of the black women mathematicians who worked behind the scenes to help launch Americans into orbit for the first time, at the height of the civil rights movement in the South. “They’re going to show you where I lived and what trouble I got into,” Johnson told VICE News correspondent Dexter Thomas in Newport News, Virginia.

Lost in London Live, Woody Harrelson s first directorial effort, successfully captured an hour-and-a-half or so of scripted comedy in one take that was streamed onto theater screens across the U.S. on Thursday. It was a marvel of technology and coordination that required 14 filming locations around London and hundreds of crew members to pull off production during the wee hours of Friday morning, local time. Narratively, it was bizarre, culminating with everyone clamoring to meet Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe . (As you would.) The film presents a late-night misadventure based on what Harrelson claims are the mostly true events from 2002 . When news of an alleged marital indiscretion by the actor hits tabloids, Harrelson is compelled to prevent his wife from seeing it and, unsurprisingly, fails. His wife becomes quite naturally upset, inspiring the actor to join some friends (including a prince whose Arabic name he never seems to remember) for a drink instead of patching things up.
