She also includes what may be a subtle dig at her former directors: “I struggled with Qi’ra quite a lot,” Clarke says of her character. “I was like: ‘Y’all need to stop telling me that she’s ‘film noir,’ because that ain’t a note.’” One might reasonably assume that the “y’all” in question are Lord and Miller.
“When it comes to that amount of money, you’re almost waiting for that to happen,” Clarke adds of what went down. “Money fucks us all up, doesn’t it? There’s so much pressure. Han Solo is a really beloved character.
The Han Solo origin film began its international run with a dismal $65 million this weekend. Its three-day domestic total of $84 million and four-day estimate of $101 million would bring “Solo’s” worldwide launch to $148 million.
“Solo” is currently tracking the lowest opening for a “Star Wars” movie. The most recent “Star Wars” installment, “The Last Jedi,” opened internationally in December 2017 with $230 million and went on to generate $712 million overseas. “Rogue One” — the first standalone “Star Wars” anthology film — debuted in 2016 with an international total of $134 million. It ultimately earned $523 million overseas.
“There’s a depth to the color, there’s a superiority to the resolution, there’s a depth to the blacks, the contrasts, everything. I mean, there are all kinds of things that digital technology can’t duplicate,” Nolan adds.
“It can do its own version and all that, and there are a lot of filmmakers who respond really well to that and really enjoy that version of imaging, but it’s different.
Putting in one of the worst opening-weekend performances of any Hollywood tentpole of recent memory, Disney and Lucasfilm's Solo: A Star Wars Story earned just $10.1 million in its first frame in China, according to early estimates from ticketing app Maoyan.
The sputtering start left the Han Solo origin story lagging in a distant third place behind two holdovers. Chinese romantic comedy How Long Will I Love U dominated with $25 million in its second weekend, while Avengers: Infinity War similarly trounced its fellow Disney title, earning ...
Nonetheless specialized audiences are still searching out top films like Magnolia’s Top Ten $5-million breakout “Rbg,” about the octogenarian Supreme Court justice, which continues to thrive at over 400 theaters. Paul Schrader’s “First Reformed” (A24) found more interest in its second weekend in a top city expansion as it goes full steam ahead.
The concept of captivity as a breeding ground for romance seems ripe for a #BelleToo response. And however eagerly we await the beast’s screen redemption, surely all the psychological think-pieces of the last few years have disabused us of believing clinical narcissism is even remotely a curable condition. As for the idea that the west wing is the most treacherous place a person could venture… well, okay, that one still holds.
But the songwriting team of Howard Ashman and Alan Menken could sell us on anything, and
De la Huerta currently lives in France, but plans to return to New York in order to be interviewed by prosecutors. “Anything that will put him in jail will make me happy, but it’s important to me that my voice is heard. I’m happy we’re closer to justice. But I feel my case is being overlooked and not taken as seriously, and that upsets me,” she adds.
“It’s complicated. Part of me is very happy, and part of me is sad.
Solo: A Star Wars Story holds an interesting position on the border between familiar, well-known territory and a brave new world, as the first film in the franchise not to feature any members of the Skywalker family. While Solo is easily the installment least interested in exploring the nature of the Force, there are other ways in which the film sticks closely to tried and true Star Wars narrative formulas. Nowhere is this more apparent than in the character of Tobias Beckett (Woody Harrelson). Ever since the very beginning, with Leia’s (Carrie ...
“That Harvey Weinstein, a powerful man who thrived and flourished as he shattered and abused women in a culture of impunity was arrested and charged is resoundingly significant,” Judd wrote in a pair of tweets.
“It is a watershed event, an irreversible pivot away from tacit and explicit license to exploit to clarity about unacceptable behavior no longer being tolerated.

Lucasfilm’s Solo: A Star Wars Story stumbled on an estimated $83.3m over three days and is projected to deliver $101m over four in what will rank as the seventh highest four-day Memorial Weekend bow and falls well below early studio estimates.
Disney executives reminded reporters on Sunday that the four-day projection equates to the highest Memorial Day debut in four years, however this will be scant consolation for a spin-off saga that was initially projected to earn between $130m and $150m.
