SAG Awards Get Political

sag logo

Amidst a backdrop of political and social upheaval over the weekend, the Screen Actors Guild held their annual awards ceremony last night in what turned out to be a politically charged evening. Speech after speech was littered with rhetoric decrying the recent travel ban enacted by President Trump, a sign that the Hollywood community has no intention of quieting their voices anytime soon. Perhaps no speech was as powerful as the one given by David Harbour during the acceptance of the award of Best TV Ensemble for Stranger Things.

Shooting Begins on Holo Solo Anthology Film

rsz_han_solo

Shooting has officially gotten underway for the upcoming Han Solo anthology film, and co-director Chris Miller marked the occasion with a cheeky tweet. “HAN FIRST SHOT,” the director posted to Twitter, an obvious reference to the “Han shot first” battle cry taken up by Star Wars fans ever since George Lucas made substantial changes to his original films back in the 90s. The tweet was accompanied by a shot of the scene clapper showing the working title of Red Cup. The film stars Alden Ehrenreich as a young Han Solo and Donald Glover as Lando Calrissian, along with Emilia Clarke and Woody Harrelson in unnamed roles. The film is currently set to be released on May 25, 2018.

We got our first look at Ocean’s 8, the gender-swapped spinoff the Ocean’s 11 series, which shows us our first look at the ladies in action. Sandra Bullock leads a crew as Debbie Ocean—presumably the sister of George Clooney’s Danny—as they attempt to pull off a spectacular heist during the Met Gala. In the released photo we see the crew gathered in a subway car, giving us subtle hints about who these ladies are. The film co-stars Cate Blanchett, Sarah Paulson, Anne Hathaway, Rhianna, Mindy Kaling, Helena Bonham Carter, and Awkwafina and is expected to hit theaters on June 8, 2018.
