We know that Lucasfilm is developing a new trilogy of core films in the Star Wars saga, but long-term plans for the standalone anthology films have always remained a mystery; especially for the Young Han Solo movie. Alden Ehrenreich, of course, was recently revealed to portray young Han Solo in the second Star Wars Story from Phil Lord and Chris Miller and now, according to The New York Daily News, the studio wants to capitalize on the hype surrounding the character and is developing plans for three Han Solo films in total.
When news broke that John Boyega would lead Pacific Rim 2, many fans wondered why no other cast members had been confirmed, especially those from the first movie. While we’ll have to wait and see if anyone from the 2013 release is coming back for more, we now know at least one actor who won’t be reprising his role, Charlie Hunnam. While talking to Yahoo! Movies at Comic-Con, Hunnam confirmed that he will not be returning as Raleigh Beckett.

After Prometheus, we know that Alien: Covenant will feature a brand new cast with Michael Fassbender serving as a bridge between the two movies, reprising his role as David, the sole survivor of Prometheus whom a new exploration crew stumble upon when they arrive on the seemingly deserted planet.
Comic-Con 2016 has come and gone and fans are still talking about the Marvel panel. Marvel Studios regularly brings out their A-game for the weekend and this year was no different but they didn't show footage online. James Gunn explains why.
Paramount Pictures and MGM have unveiled a new Ben-Hur trailer for Wanted director Timur Bekmambetov’s adaptation of the Lew Wallace novel Ben-Hur: A Tale of the Christ. The book was famously adapted in 1959 by director William Wyler with Charlton Heston in the starring role, but this new adaptation brings back more of the Biblical aspects of Wallace’s novel.
The first teaser trailer for Trainspotting 2 has finally landed online. The long in development sequel became a reality when director Danny Boyle was able to reunite the original cast for a story based on author Irvine Welsh’s follow-up novel entitled Porno.
