Oscar Isaac Filmed 'Last Jedi' and 'Annihilation' at Same Time Because He's Perfect

Filmhírek: Moviefone - k, 2018-02-13 19:00

 The Last Jedi' - PhotocallIs there anything Oscar Isaac can't do? No, and that includes filming two movies at the same time!

Isaac shot "Star Wars: The Last Jedi" and his newest film "Annihilation" at the same time — sometimes even on the same day! As he told Slashfilm, "I would shoot something in the morning and then have a little bit of down time and then switch it up. So that was wild."

So, mutiny against Laura Dern's Admiral Holdo before lunch, tender love scene with Natalie Portman afterward.

Isaac even visited the "Annihilation" set still dressed up as cocky pilot Poe Dameron and used his "Star Wars" trailer since the smaller indie sci-fi movie didn't have them.

"It reminded me a little of 'Pee-Wee's Big Adventure,' when he's on the lot and you see all the different actors walking around," the actor added.

"Annihilation" reunites Isaac with his "Ex Machina" director Alex Garland, who said he was grateful to "Last Jedi" director Rian Johnson and producer Ram Bergman.

"I think because they come from an indie film background, here they are making like the biggest movie of all time, and they were unbelievably helpful and accommodating to us," Garland said of Isaac's filming schedule.

"Most big productions would not even dream of doing that. And they went out of their way — whilst making f---ing 'Star Wars,' for Christ's sake – to help this really small movie next door."

Melissa McCarthy, Tiffany Haddish Team Up For Gritty Drama 'The Kitchen'

Filmhírek: Moviefone - k, 2018-02-13 18:50

Two of Hollywood's funniest ladies are teaming up — but not in a comedy.

Melissa McCarthy and Tiffany Haddish are headlining the gritty drama "The Kitchen," according to Deadline. Andrea Berloff, the co-writer of "Straight Outta Compton," will make her directorial debut.

The movie tells the story of the Irish mafia in Hell's Kitchen, New York in the 1970s. After an FBI raid sweeps up the mafia's top leaders, their mob wives take over — and run the business in even more brutal fashion than their husbands.

This is the first straight dramatic role for McCarthy, who is a well-known and beloved comedienne from movies like "Bridesmaids," "Ghostbusters," "The Boss," and "Spy." Haddish became a breakout star last year thanks to a brilliant turn in "Girls Trip" (and also for her hilarious retelling of a story about Will and Jada Smith and Groupon). She can next be seen opposite Tracy Morgan in the TBS sitcom "The Last O.G." starting in April.

New 'Rampage' Trailer Pushes Dwayne Johnson to Save the World (Again)

Filmhírek: Moviefone - k, 2018-02-13 18:30

The Rock is ready to roll and save humankind once again.

Warner Bros. dropped a new trailer for "Rampage," a movie based on the 1980s arcade game. Dwayne Johnson stars as a primatologist who has a deep connection with a gorilla he raised from birth named George. But then George is exposed to a genetic compound and he, a crocodile and a wolf all grow to enormous size and proceed to, well, rampage.

These new apex predators battle each other for supremacy, tearing across North America and destroying everything in their path. It's up to Johnson and a genetic engineer (Naomie Harris) to find an antidote and save the world.

The trailer looks pretty much like Johnson's other action thrillers. As usual, he's a fairly ordinary guy who finds himself in extraordinary circumstances. Luckily, he has the physique to handle them.

"Rampage" also stars Malin Akerman, Joe Manganiello, and Jeffrey Dean Morgan, and opens in theaters April 20.

Rachel Weisz Doesn't Want Female James Bond

Filmhírek: Moviefone - k, 2018-02-13 16:10

'The Mercy' World Premiere - Red Carpet ArrivalsWho will be the next James Bond? Rachel Weisz, who is married to current 007 Daniel Craig, doesn't think it should be a woman.

Instead, she wants new characters in new stories for actresses to portray.

"[Author Ian Fleming] devoted an awful lot of time to writing this particular character, who is particularly male and relates in a particular way to women," Weisz told The Telegraph.

"Why not create your own story rather than jumping on to the shoulders and being compared to all those other male predecessors? Women are really fascinating and interesting and should get their own stories."

Speculating on the next James Bond star is almost as fun as watching the movies themselves. In recent years, there's been an outcry to diversify the franchise — either by casting an actor of color (Idris Elba!) or a woman (Gillian Anderson! Priyanka Chopra! Emilia Clarke!).

And while, yes, of course women should get their own stories, it would be a major coup if James Bond were a woman; another long-running British franchise, "Doctor Who," recently cast Jodie Whittaker as the first woman in the titular role.

Craig has confirmed he'll return for Bond 25, which is slated for release Nov. 8, 2019. But last August, he told Stephen Colbert, "I think this is it. I just want to go out on a high note." So, let the betting begin.

'Peter Rabbit' FIlmmakers Apologize for Food Allergy 'Bullying' Scene After Backlash 

Filmhírek: Moviefone - h, 2018-02-12 16:00

#BoycottPeterRabbit is real, guys.

Some parents and allergy/asthma groups are upset with the new movie "Peter Rabbit" for a scene where a character's serious food allergy is mocked. In the movie, Mr. McGregor is allergic to blackberries. Peter and his friends throw berries at him, and when he starts to choke, he's forced to use his EpiPen.

The group Kids with Food Allergies posted a warning about the scene on its Facebook page:

"The very real fear and anxiety that people experience during an allergic reaction (often referred to as an impending sense of doom) is a serious matter. Making light of this condition hurts our members because it encourages the public not to take the risk of allergic reactions seriously, and this cavalier attitude may make them act in ways that could put an allergic person in danger."

According to the Associated Press, Asthma and Allergy Foundation president and CEO Kenneth Mendez wrote an open letter to Sony Pictures asking for the opportunity to educate the company and movie's cast, urging the studio to "examine your portrayal of bullying in your films geared toward a young audience." A change.org petition was launched demanding an "Apology from Sony Pictures for irresponsible allergy bullying in Peter Rabbit Movie."

Sony and the filmmakers responded Sunday with a joint statement, via the AP, saying:

"Food allergies are a serious issue. Our film should not have made light of Peter Rabbit's archnemesis, Mr. McGregor, being allergic to blackberries, even in a cartoonish, slapstick way. We sincerely regret not being more aware and sensitive to this issue, and we truly apologize."

This may sound like crazy snowflake nonsense to you, or you may completely understand why it's a big deal.

Here are people on both sides:

On Peter Rabbit gate: anaphylaxis kills. Kids copy what they see. Foods people are most often allergic to are easily available.l (and easily thrown!) I don't think this is just a massive sense of humour failure but not was there any malintent on the part of the film makers.

— Dr Christian Jessen (@DoctorChristian) February 12, 2018

@SonyPictures What a disgrace - teaching children it's okay to bully and harass others with food allergies. You obviously have no staff with children who could DIE from food allergies. #attemptedmurder #foodallergies #boycottpeterrabbit

— Allison Wells (@OrangeAlli) February 10, 2018

@CommonSense please update your Peter Rabbit listing to warn parents of kids with food allergies about the violent food allergy bullying scene. Pure and unnecessary violence. #BoycottPeterRabbit

— Karen Costa (@karenraycosta) February 10, 2018

**Warning** For those who have children that live with food allergies (like mine), do NOT go see the new Peter Rabbit movie. Finding "humor" in bullying by Peter & friends to an allergy friend (who then needs an Epi) is sickening. Shame on @SonyPictures #BoycottPeterRabbit

— Tom Murray (@thomascmurray) February 10, 2018

Oh good grief. Its a movie. About imaginary talking rabbits. Really?

— Kate Campbell (@elektra6618) February 12, 2018

Just read this drivel today, #boycottpeterrabbit people getting offended over kids films. I remember violent cartoons as a child and I don't recall brutally killing anyone growing up. Have some faith in your kids, breathe, and remember its just a stupid film about talking rabbits

— Nick Fitzpatrick (@nicknogger) February 11, 2018

I thought this was a story from the @TheOnion

— Craig Lunsford (@TCraigL) February 12, 2018

I almost died from food allergy induced anaphylactic shock and I think the people freaking out about this are out of their minds. I'd honestly rather die of anaphylaxis than live in the hypersensitive, watered down feelings-before-fact world they want to create.

— Albert (@spaycemunkey) February 12, 2018
"Peter Rabbit" -- featuring the voices of James Corden, Fayssal Bazzi, Domhnall Gleeson, Sia, Sam Neill, Margot Robbie, and Elizabeth Debicki -- is now in theaters.

Kim Cattrall Had a Savage Reply to 'Hypocrite' Sarah Jessica Parker's Condolence Note

Filmhírek: Moviefone - h, 2018-02-12 15:30

Yikes. Fans are shocked at how ugly this has gotten.

"Sex and the City" stars Kim Cattrall and Sarah Jessica Parker are now Feuding on Social Media. It's a one-way feud, though, at least in public. Cattrall seems to be harboring the most bad blood against SJP, with SJP appearing to want to be friends.

The latest turn happened after Kim Cattrall's brother was found dead. Cattrall had just used social media to ask for help finding him, then reported back that he had passed away.

SJP reached out with condolences, and at first Cattrall seemed appreciative of her -- and the other SATC stars' - kindness.

It is with great sadness that myself and my family announce the unexpected passing of our son and brother, Chris Cattrall. At this time we ask for privacy but we want to thank you all on social media for your outpouring of love and support in this trying time.

A post shared by Kim Cattrall (@kimcattrall) on Feb 4, 2018 at 1:00pm PST

Both SJP and Cynthia Nixon commented on the post. SJP wrote:

"Dearest Kim, my love and condolences to you and yours and Godspeed to your beloved brother. Xx."

Nixon wrote:

"Hey Kim such awful news. So sorry to hear. Sending you love. XO."


Here's what Cattrall initially posted on Instagram:

#SexandtheCity

A post shared by Kim Cattrall (@kimcattrall) on Feb 6, 2018 at 12:39pm PST

But apparently Cattrall's thoughts on the subject changed -- maybe after talking to her mother, who is quoted in her next post. Or possibly from seeing headlines about SJP reaching out, as if that made SJP such a good person.

Either way, this is the clear slam Cattrall shared with the world:

My Mom asked me today "When will that @sarahjessicaparker, that hypocrite, leave you alone?" Your continuous reaching out is a painful reminder of how cruel you really were then and now. Let me make this VERY clear. (If I haven't already) You are not my family. You are not my friend. So I'm writing to tell you one last time to stop exploiting our tragedy in order to restore your 'nice girl' persona. Copy and paste link https://nypost.com/2017/10/07/inside-the-mean-girls-culture-that-destroyed-sex-and-the-city/

A post shared by Kim Cattrall (@kimcattrall) on Feb 10, 2018 at 5:20am PST

Wow. The link she shared went to the October 2017 story "Inside the mean-girls culture that destroyed 'Sex and the City,'" with details on how Cattrall felt isolated by the cast and "treated horribly by Sarah Jessica Parker."

Clearly Cattrall is grieving for her brother, and she and her mother may have just been frustrated that the conversation had become about how sweet SJP was to give Cattrall a shout-out even after Cattrall kept insisting they were never friends. If Cattrall saw SJP as a hypocrite mean girl for so many years it must've just bubbled up until it came out in public. (Then again, if SJP never posted anything, would she have been slammed by fans as being callous and cold-hearted?)

Fans were shocked at the harshness of Cattrall's slam. But since there's a lot of history we didn't see, and we know she's in mourning for her brother, most fans seemed to understand the complicated emotions involved.

Obviously this shuts the door even tighter on "Sex and the City 3" -- at least with Kim Cattrall as Samantha -- but it's probably for the best.

'SNL': Natalie Portman Raps 'Star Wars' Prequels Defense & Spoofs 'Stranger Things'

Filmhírek: Moviefone - h, 2018-02-05 16:00

Say somethin' f*ckin' nice about Jar Jar Binks!

Natalie Portman proved she is still the queen in a triumphant return to "Saturday Night Live." As hoped, our Queen Amidala presented the world with "Natalie's Rap 2," as written by The Lonely Island with a cameo from Andy Samberg himself. Portman went full "Black Swan" with her mommy moves, and really brought her A-game to defend her "Star Wars" Episode I-III films:

"Say somethin' bout the motherf*cking prequels, b*tch!"

E-P-I-C. Please don't make her wait 12 more years to come back for the third rap.

SNL also played off Portman's perceived resemblance to young "Stranger Things" star Millie Bobby Brown, having her play Eleven in an otherwise bizarre "Stranger Things 3" spoof: Portman's February 3 episode was filled with more cameos -- including Tina Fey and Rachel Dratch in a Revolutionary War Super Bowl sketch.

Portman revived her own Oscar nominated performance (or a version of it) as Jackie Kennedy for a First Lady sketch.

And for some reason they made this Oscar winner perform in a sketch where Beck Bennett literally talked out of his own butt. (How was that not cut for time?)

Portman also had a clever monologue -- even though she was barely in it, 'cause NBC used it to promote the Olympics, which will be taking SNL's air time until March:Natalie Portman hosted SNL to promote her new movie "Annihilation," which opens Friday, Feb. 23.

The Full 'Solo: A Star Wars Story' Trailer Is Here, and It's More Than 'Fine'

Filmhírek: Moviefone - h, 2018-02-05 15:44

I have a GOOD feeling about this. (For now.)

"Solo: A Star Wars Story" shared a TV spot during the Super Bowl, but saved its extended official teaser trailer for a Monday morning drop on "Good Morning America."

Because "Solo" went through eleventh hour director changes and reshoots, there were fears we might have a turkey on our hands. For many fans, the trailer brought a sigh of relief, and the cautious optimism of A New Hype.

It's true that Alden Ehrenreich does not sound anything like Harrison Ford's Han Solo, but hopefully that's a hurdle we can all get over quickly once the full movie starts playing. If not, well ... then he was miscast, and that's that. Everyone else seems fine ("It's fine! We're fine!"), including Donald Glover as Lando Calrissian, Joonas Suatomo as Chewbacca, "Game of Thrones" queen Emilia Clarke as intriguing new character Qi'Ra ("I may be the only person who knows what you really are"), and Woody Harrelson as Han's mentor. Thandie Newton and Paul Bettany also costar, and we can probably expect a few more TV spots/teasers to share details on the supporting characters.

Check out the extended teaser trailer:Haha. Nice nod back to Han's "Star Wars" line: "We're all fine now here, thank you. How are you?"

And here are some cool new posters:

And some Monday Morning poster goodness #HanSolo pic.twitter.com/sJp4jqXN6K

— Regal Cinemas (@RegalMovies) February 5, 2018

And this here's the official synopsis from Lucasfilm:

"Board the Millennium Falcon and journey to a galaxy far, far away in "Solo: A Star Wars Story," an all-new adventure with the most beloved scoundrel in the galaxy. Through a seres of daring escapades deep within a dark and dangerous criminal underworld, Han Solo meets his mighty future copilot Chewbacca and encounters the notorious gambler Lando Calrissian, in a journey that will set the course of one of the Star Wars saga's most unlikely heroes."

"Solo" opens May 25, in time for Memorial Day weekend.

Netflix is Dropping New 'Cloverfield' Movie Tonight

Filmhírek: Moviefone - h, 2018-02-05 02:20

Take that, Beyonce.

Earlier tonight Netflix debuted the trailer for "The Cloverfield Paradox," the latest film in the loosely-connected J.J. Abrams-produced genre series that began with "Cloverfield" (celebrating its 10th anniversary this year!) and continued with the superb, wholly underrated "10 Cloverfield Lane" in 2016. Previously, the film was scheduled to be released this month and was later it was bumped back to April 20th. This was back when Paramount was putting the movie out. Now Netflix has taken over the distribution and instead it'll be coming out tonight, right after the Super Bowl.

Just remember to tape "This Is Us."

This is a huge move for the streamer and for the sci-fi film, which stars Daniel Bruhl, David Oyelowo, Chris O'Dowd, and Gugu Mbatha-Raw and, at least according to the trailer, will explore the beginnings of the "Cloverfield" mythology. Traditionally, the post-Super Bowl spot is one of the most watched television slots of the year (we still remember that awesome episode of "Alias"), so for Netflix to say, loud and clear, "turn your TV off and watch your streaming service" is bold as hell. It's also super cool.

Box Office: 'Jumanji' Regains Top Spot for Modest Super Bowl Weekend

LOS ANGELES, Feb 4, (Variety.com) - Sony's resilient "Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle" has returned to the top of the North American box office, leading a modest Super Bowl weekend with $11 million at 3,553 sites.

The session caps a remarkable run for the Dwayne Johnson-Kevin Hart action comedy, which also won the box office on its third, fourth and fifth weekends. "Jumanji" has become the 42nd highest domestic grosser of all time with $352.6 million, less than $500,000 behind Johnson's "Furious 7" for the 41st spot.

"Jumanji," which declined just 32 percent, is only the 11th title to top $11 million in its seventh weekend. It's the lowest total for a first-place film since the second weekend of "The Hitman's Bodyguard" won the final frame of August.

Fox's "Maze Runner: The Death Cure," which won the box office last weekend, finished second with $10.2 million from 3,793 locations. The weekend's sole opener, Helen Mirren's horror-thriller "Winchester," launched in third with $9.3 million at 2,480 venues, topping modest expectations which had been in the $6 million to $8 million range.

Overall domestic business was typically modest for a Super Bowl weekend with $92 million overall, according to comScore, as studios remain reluctant to open major titles during the frenzy surrounding the pro football championship. The lowest recent Super Bowl weekend came in at $86 million in 2014, when the third weekend of "Ride Along" led with $12 million.

The 2018 box office has remained close to even with last year thanks to "Jumanji," with $1.06 billion through Sunday, down 0.5 percent from last year at the same point.

"'Jumanji' gets the MVP box office award for Super Bowl weekend with a stunning late run ascension to the number one spot as 'Maze Runner' adds to its total and 'Winchester' enjoys a bit of counter programming success amidst a sea of Oscar contenders over what is a typically slow moviegoing weekend," said Paul Dergarabedian, senior media analyst with comScore.

"Maze Runner: The Death Cure," the third and final installment of the "Maze Runner" series, stars Dylan O'Brien as a young man trying to survive in a dystopian universe. It declined by 58 percent from its $24 million opening. The film's release was delayed for a year due to injuries that O'Brien sustained on the set in 2016.

"Winchester" centers on a real-life house in San Jose, Calif. built by Sarah Winchester (Mirren), the heiress to the Winchester firearms fortune, over 38 years beginning in 1886. The mansion, which stands seven stories tall, contains hundreds of rooms and is meant to be an asylum for vengeful ghosts.

Fox's seventh weekend of "The Greatest Showman" finished fourth with $7.8 million at 2,588 sites, posting the lowest decline among the top 10 films at 18 percent. The Hugh Jackman musical has turned in an impressive $137.5 million in 45 days.

Entertainment Studios' Western drama "Hostiles," starring Christian Bale, followed in fifth with $5.5 million at 2,934 locations, giving it $21.2 million after two weeks in wide release. Fox's seventh weekend of "The Post" came in sixth with $5.2 million at 2,462 sites for a $67.2 million domestic total.

Mark Ruffalo Worries 'Avengers' Fans With 'Final Exit' Photo

Filmhírek: Moviefone - szo, 2018-02-03 01:45

What does Mark Ruffalo mean by "The final exit"?

"Avengers: Infinity War" opens May 4, a year before "Avengers 4," which was previously called "Infinity War Part 2." Several of the cast members have been interchanging the two movies, calling them both "Infinity War," since they were filmed back-to-back in Atlanta.

Principal filming is now complete on both movies, and we know "Avengers 4" is meant to shake up the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Many old school stars have ended their contracts -- including Chris Hemsworth as Thor, and maybe Mark Ruffalo as Bruce Banner/The Hulk.

Ruffalo doesn't quite say "I'm done," but he gets close in the caption to this photo, showing him in his motion-capture suit as the Hulk:

Saw this on Reddit. Hhaha. My last day on IW. The final exit.

A post shared by Mark Ruffalo (@markruffalo) on Feb 2, 2018 at 6:16am PST

He got fans worried that Hulk will die. He also got them confused about the hobo look.

Ruffalo's smile suggests he's just joking around, but everything in the background looks like a staged scene. Hobo Hulk is apparently happening, and fans are speculating about why. Some fans have compared Hulk walking away to the closing scenes from Bill Bixby's "Incredible Hulk" TV show, set to "The Lonely Man."

If Ruffalo's Hulk does have a scene like that, it would be a fitting but bittersweet farewell for the character in the MCU.

"Avengers: Infinity War" opens in theaters on May 4, 2018. "Avengers 4" opens May 3, 2019,

'Black Panther' Director Responds to Anti-Disney Group's Sabotage Plan

Filmhírek: Moviefone - p, 2018-02-02 23:35

Here we go again.

The first reviews for director Ryan Coogler's "Black Panther" are out and they are very, very positive. But "Black Panther" is a Marvel movie, and many DC fans feel like critics are biased in favor of Marvel and against DC Comics movies. A group posted plans to take aim at all Marvel/Disney/Lucasfilm properties because of that perceived bias (among other gripes).

A Facebook group called Down With Disney's Treatment of Franchises and Its Fanboys announced plans to "Give Black Panther a Rotten Audience Score on Rotten Tomatoes." The page is now gone -- Facebook removed it -- but here's what the organizer wrote (via TheWrap):

''Given the massive success of the audience review rigging on the Rotten Tomatoes site for 'Star Wars: The Last Jedi,' and due to the sudden rise in those disgruntled with Disney business practices among other factors especially due to the corporate manipulations which created falsified bad press for the DCEU, I feel that it's time to strike back at all those under Disney and bring down the house of mouse's actions for paying off the critics that hurt DC Comics on film and for other parties affected by them. I'll be making events like this for 'Infinity War' and the Netflix shows etc so we can rally together to truly make a difference...If you want to spread spoilers to Marvel fanboys, use this event as a platform to inform us of targets!"

The same group used bots to keep the Audience Score for "Star Wars: The Last Jedi" low. The organizer, self-described as "alt-right," told Huffpost one of his chief complaints about "The Last Jedi" was its "feminist agenda" with female characters.

The Los Angeles World Premiere of Marvel Studios' BLACK PANTHERBefore the page disappeared, more than 4,000 people said they were interested in joining the plan to rig the "Black Panther" RT Audience Score.

HuffPost asked director Ryan Coogler for his take on the sabotage plan. He hadn't heard of Down With Disney, and he didn't sound too worried:

"For me, I'm looking forward to everybody seeing the film. I'm really looking forward to sharing the film with audiences regardless of what their political views are ... that's kind of where I [stand on that]."

There's been an increasing divide between the reception by fans and the reviews by critics -- who write reviews for their individual publications, then post an overall "fresh" or "rotten" score to Rotten Tomatoes; Coogler also shared his thoughts on the debate about Rotten Tomatoes:

"It ... can be an oversimplification of what critics are saying about a movie. It's quicker to look at the consensus than it is to read the articles. But I'm a person who definitely respects film criticism and draws on it in the filmmaking process."

We can probably expect the "Black Panther" Rotten Tomatoes critical and audience scores to have at least some disparity. Then again, the previous Marvel movie to be released was "Thor: Ragnarok," whose Tomatometer and audience scores were very close.

"Black Panther" opens Friday, February 16.

Here's a Tiny Tease of the 'Mission: Impossible - Fallout' Super Bowl Trailer

Filmhírek: Moviefone - p, 2018-02-02 17:45

Mission: Super Bowl.

"Mission: Impossible - Fallout," the sixth movie in the action-packed spy franchise, is debuting its first trailer during Sunday's Super Bowl. But to whet fans' appetites, the movie released a very brief, six-second tease of what's to come.

Tom Cruise races on a motorcycle (of course), new cast member Henry Cavill throws some punches, Simon Pegg and Ving Rhames look awed/horrified, and Cruise flies a helicopter on what appears to be a collision course with a tractor trailer. So, the usual.

Your mission, should you choose to accept it: Retweet to be one of the first to see the new @MissionFilm Fallout trailer this Sunday. #MissionImpossible pic.twitter.com/u4tblcCVbs

— Mission: Impossible (@MissionFilm) February 1, 2018 "Fallout" also brings back Rebecca Ferguson as Ilsa Faust, Michelle Monaghan as Ethan Hunt's wife, and Sean Harris as Syndicate boss Solomon Lane. Added into the mix are Cavill as a possible villain (sporting a wicked mustache that caused "Justice League" production headaches), as well as Angela Bassett and "Crown" star Vanessa Kirby in unknown roles.

And even though Cruise badly broke a leg while filming a stunt, the movie is still on track for its July 27 release date.

First 'Solo: A Star Wars' Trailer Premiering Soon, May Be Teased During Super Bowl

Filmhírek: Moviefone - p, 2018-02-02 15:05

The young Han Solo is ready to make his entrance.

The highly-anticipated first trailer for "Solo: A Star Wars Story" will reportedly debut Monday on "Good Morning America." Director Ron Howard also hinted at Monday's reveal by retweeting a fan's comment about which team would win the Super Bowl: "Who cares I'm going to be watching GMA Monday. Need my rest."

There is also a ton of speculation that Lucasfilm and Disney will run a 30-second teaser during the Super Bowl ahead of the trailer premiere. Of course, the Super Bowl is the most-watched telecast of any year and the commercials that run it have become their own phenomenon. A 30-second ad cast cost $5 million.

Movie commercials airing during this year's Super Bowl include "Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom," the Dwayne Johnson thriller "Skyscraper," and "Mission: Impossible - Fallout." Disney itself is likely to run trailers for "Avengers: Infinity War" and "A Wrinkle in Time."

A Monday debut for the "Solo" trailer means it could run in previews with "Black Panther," which opens Feb. 16.

"Solo" has been shrouded in secrecy, particularly since the original directors were fired and Howard came on board. The project has been plagued with rumors about star Alden Ehrenreich, the amount of reshot scenes by Howard, and the tone of the film. There's been no poster and no official images aside from behind-the-scenes social media posts by Howard.

Lucasfilm only recently released the official synopsis:

Board the Millennium Falcon and journey to a galaxy far, far away in "Solo: A Star Wars Story," an all-new adventure with the most beloved scoundrel in the galaxy. Through a seres of daring escapades deep within a dark and dangerous criminal underworld, Han Solo meets his mighty future copilot Chewbacca and encounters the notorious gambler Lando Calrissian, in a journey that will set the course of one of the Star Wars saga's most unlikely heroes.

"Solo: A Star Wars Story" opens in theaters May 25.

'Disobedience' Trailer: Rachel McAdams Struggles With Love for Rachel Weisz

Filmhírek: Moviefone - p, 2018-02-02 02:16

Faith, family, and forbidden love -- the trailer for "Disobedience" is has all three themes in spades.

Bleecker Street released the new preview Thursday, showing stars Rachel McAdams and Rachel Weisz as Esti and Ronit, two former childhood friends and lovers who are reunited when Ronit comes home after her father's death. While Ronit has become an outsider in their Orthodox Jewish community, Esti is married to a rabbi. As we see in the trailer, Esti starts to question her choices as she rekindles her romance with Ronit.

In addition to McAdams and Weisz, "Disobedience" stars Alessandro Nivola as Dovid, Esti's rabbi husband and Ronit's cousin. The film is based on Naomi Alderman's 2006 novel of the same name and was adapted by Sebastian Lelio and Rebecca Lenkiewicz. Lelio is the director.

"Disobedience" premiered at the 2017 Toronto International FIlm Festival and will hit U.S. theaters this fall. The film is set for release on April 27.

Harry Potter Celebration: Viktor Krum Has an Odd Obsession

Filmhírek: Moviefone - p, 2018-02-02 00:09

Harry Potter Celebration, held at Universal Studios in Orlando, Florida, unites Harry Potter die-hards from around the world, offering exclusive experiences, and providing those same fans with early looks at exciting new products from around the Wizarding World. It also allows for actors from the film franchise to recount stories and memories from the beloved series. And one of those actors, Stanislav Ianevski, was the unabashed star of this year's Harry Potter Celebration.

Ianevski, who played Viktor Krum (and Harry Potter Quidditch rival) in "Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire" (and, he'll be the first to tell you, was cut out of a later film), was an absolute hoot in a special press conference we attended. The Bulgarian actor let loose about overzealous fans (he claims a young woman threw a "bra and a pair of knickers" at him, emblazoned with the phrase "Marry Me") and where he'd put his horcrux ("In a barbell, since I spend so much time at the gym").

But perhaps the most endearing moment came when he was asked what other aspect of popular culture he was particularly drawn to. "I'm a big fan of the Minions," Ianevski said, referecing the gibberish-speaking, yellowish henchmen. (It was probably on his mind since there's so much Minion-related business at Universal Studios.) "There was one in my pocket and I had to take him out when we went on one of the rides. So Minions." Just think about the harsh Krum having to remove a Minion from his pocket before getting on a rollercoaster for a minute. Ianevski continued: "I wish they were real. I could have my own army." Then, for reasons we can't quite remember, Ianevski said, "Chinchillas are great."

So there you have it: Viktor Krum, incredibly entertaining Minions superfan.

Harry Potter Celebration: Tonks is Woke AF

Filmhírek: Moviefone - p, 2018-02-02 00:06

During the recent Harry Potter Celebration at Universal Studios in Orlando, Florida, we got to spend some exclusive time with some of the stars of the franchise. And during a press conference, one thing became abundantly clear: Natalia Tena, who plays Nymphadora Tonks in "Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix," "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince" and both parts of "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows," is woke AF.

Tena, who also essayed memorable roles on "Game of Thrones" (she was wildling Osha) and the "Black Mirror" Christmas special, was outspoken during the special conference, repeatedly saying things that would make the outspoken J.K. Rowling very proud indeed.

When someone asked the assembled cast members if they had any advice for up-and-coming performers, Tena very matter-of-factly said, "Have a plan B." She then added: "And if you're a woman, have a plan B, C, the whole alphabet."

Later on during the conference Tena, after disclosing her passionate love of comic books (she's a big fan of Garth Ennis, particularly "Preacher" and "The Boys") and suggesting that her favorite emoji is an emoji we're not even sure exists (a wolf emoji?), someone else asked her what she would use magic for.

After thinking about it for a minute, she said she'd probably access the Wizarding World for, "A potion to stop sexism." For such a lighthearted event, aimed at celebrating a franchise epitomized by its fanciful escapism, it was Tena who fearlessly access the plight of modern society. She managed to make the topic accessible and impactful. Some would say it was downright magical.
