The Han Solo Movie Is Titled SOLO: A STAR WARS STORY

Meet Your Newest Sacramento Kings

I know that I am a film and entertainment site but I gotta support my local team I have been following since 1992. The Sacramento Kings selected BYU’s Jimmer Fredette (10th overall), UCLA’s Tyler Honeycutt (35th overall), and Washington’s Isaiah Thomas (60th overall), according to Kings’ President of Basketball Operations Geoff Petrie.

In a three-team trade, the Kings acquired forward-guard John Salmons and the draft rights of Fredette (selected 10th overall by Milwaukee) from the Bucks. Milwaukee received guard Beno Udrih from the Kings and swingman Stephen Jackson, Shaun Livingston, and the draft rights to Tobias Harris (selected 19th by Charlotte) from the Bobcats. Charlotte received the draft rights of forward Bismack Biyombo (selected 7th by Sacramento) and swingman Corey Maggette from Milwaukee.

“With Jimmer, we got one of the most exciting players in college basketball last year,” Petrie said. “He’s someone with outstanding offensive skills and creativity in the backcourt. Honey…

Peter Falk-Columbo Star Dies At The Age Of 83

Peter Falk, star of both TV and movies, has died in Los Angeles. He was 83.

He may forever be known for asking suspects “just one more thing…” before cracking a murder case as shabby trench coat wearing ‘tec Columbo on TV, but Falk’s career went far beyond that iconic, beloved character.


A New York City native, Falk faced an early challenge when his right eye was removed because of a tumour, resulting in him wearing a glass eye through most of his life. Despite that, he was a committed sports player in his youth, though he would gravitate towards the stage at 12, when he appeared in The Pirates of Penzance at a summer camp. After being rejected by the armed services because of his eye near the end of World War Two, Falk signed up with the US Merchant Marines, serving as a cook and a mess boy.

Following a stint at Syracuse University and a couple of other jobs, Falk began performing in community theatre, eventually moving to Off-Broadway productions and then the Great White Way itself.

Fight Club writer Jim Uhls has been tapped to write Trent Reznor’s HBO/BBC Worldwide Productions miniseries Year Zero.

Based on the 2007 album by Reznor’s Nine Inch Nails, the concept recording criticizes the U.S. government -- specifically the Bush years -- and presents a dystopian vision of the year 2022. Reznor has already adapted the album into an alternate reality game.

Reznor most recently picked up the Academy Award for penning the original score, with Atticus Ross, to Aaron Sorkin’s The Social Network. He also composed the score for Sorkin’s upcoming adaptation of The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo.

The epic sci-fi miniseries is a co-production of HBO and BBC Worldwide Productions.

New Images From The Hobbit. IAN MCKELLEN As GANDALF

EW has the first 3 official pictures from the set of The Hobbit. In the pictures we get to see Martin Freeman as Bilbo Baggins and Ian McKellen as Gandalf. Who's Excited for these images?

See all the images after the Jump...



IAN MCKELLEN (GANDALF)

”He’s in fantastic form,” Peter Jackson says of McKellen. ”In a way, his role in The Hobbit has more technical difficulties than Lord of the Rings did, because he has scenes with 14 smaller characters — obviously the dwarves and the hobbit are shorter… I remember saying to him [laughs], ”Look, this isn’t Waiting for Godot or King Lear. This is The Hobbit. This is the real thing.”


PETER JACKSON WITH MARTIN FREEMAN

”There’s no way you can pace yourself for shoots like these,” Jackson says. ”When we were going through the schedule for The Hobbit, I felt a terrible drop in my stomach when I saw that we’d be shooting for 254 days. We’re only 12 days short of The Lord of the Rings even though we’re only doing two movies. When I saw that, I had to …

Japanese Real Steel Trailer Delivers A Punch

The motherland delivers again. In this Japanese Real Steel trailer we get to see who Adam the robot is. The film stars Hugh Jackman, Evangeline Lilly and Rima Fakih, and directed by Shawn Levy. The film is based on the 1956 short story "Steel" by Richard Matheson, and was featured on an episode of The Twilight Zone.

Watch the trailer after the Jump...



Jackman plays Charlie Kenton, a washed-up fighter who lost his chance at a title when 2000-pound, 8-foot-tall steel robots took over the ring. Now nothing but a small-time promoter, Charlie earns just enough money piecing together low-end bots from scrap metal to get from one underground boxing venue to the next. When Charlie hits rock bottom, he reluctantly teams up with his estranged son Max (Goyo) to build and train a championship contender. As the stakes in the brutal, no-holds-barred arena are raised, Charlie and Max, against all odds, get one last shot at a comeback.

Jamie Foxx In Talks To Join Quentin Tarantino's "Django Unchained"

Quentin Tarantino has settled on the man he wants to star in Django Unchained and  now Jamie Foxx is in negotiations for the lead.

Yes, despite spending weeks trying to lure Smith to star in his tale of a freed slave who goes up against a sadistic plantation owner to rescue his long-lost love, only for the actor to pass on snatching the role, the writer/director has been looking down the list of other possible candidates. And while Idris Elba, Terrence Howard and Chris Tucker all took meetings, it seems that Foxx, who has been mentioned before alongside the others, is the man.

Leonardo DiCaprio is already attached to play the villainous Calvin Candie, while Inglourious Basterds’ Christoph Waltz had the role of Django’s friend and mentor, a German bounty hunter named Dr Schultz, written for him. Fellow QT regular Samuel L Jackson will be Candie’s right-hand man, Stephen.

Tarantino hasn’t yet found the actress he wants to play Broomhilda, the love of Django’s life, though Kerry Washingto…
