Solo: A Star Wars Story, or simply Solo, is an upcoming American film centered on Han Solo, a character from the Star Wars franchise. The film is being produced by Lucasfilm from a screenplay by Lawrence and Jon Kasdan, and will be distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures.

Principal photography began in January 2017 at Pinewood Studios, under the direction of Phil Lord and Christopher Miller. The pair left the project in June 2017 after reportedly being fired over “creative differences” with Lucasfilm, and Ron Howard took over directing duties, making Solo Howard’s second film for Lucasfilm after Willow. The film is scheduled to be released on May 25, 2018. It will be released in RealD 3D and IMAX 3D.
Al Pacino stars in New Movie Paterno
Paterno is an upcoming American television drama film directed by Barry Levinson and stars Al Pacino as Joe Paterno.
Paterno is an upcoming American television drama film directed by Barry Levinson and stars Al Pacino as Joe Paterno. The film centers on Penn State’s Joe Paterno in the aftermath of the Jerry Sandusky sexual abuse scandal.
On September 8 2012, it was reported that ICM Partners would take a package for a film about Joe Paterno starring Al Pacino as Paterno. On January 2013 it was reported that Brian De Palma would direct the film.
HBO subsequently picked up the film, but on September 19, 2014, it was reported that the network had suspended pre-production on the project due to budget issues.
“I raised millions of dollars for this university. I have a staff and a squad that can win a national championship. You wanna fire me? Try it.”
Joe Paterno had coached the Penn State Nittany Lions until 2011 and is the most victorious coach in NCAA FBS history with his team racking up 409 wins. In July 2012, the NCAA voided all of Penn State’s wins from 1998 to 2011 as part of its punishment for the Jerry Sandusky sexual abuse scandal.
That decision meant 111 of the games Joe Paterno had coached and won were taken off his winning record. However the NCAA has since reversed that decision and his record still stands.
On June 5, 2017, it was reported that the film was once again moving forward with Pacino starring and Barry Levinson directing. In June 2017, Riley Keough, Kathy Baker, and Greg Grunberg joined the cast. On July 10, 2017, Annie Parisse joined the cast. On July 16, 2017, it was reported that the film had begun production.
Paterno Premieres April 7 on HBO.

What the critics are saying:
Peter Debruge, Variety
Like Taika Waititi before him, Ryan Coogler gives the Marvel template a bold auteurist twist with an African extravaganza that packs a muscular intensity and challenges as much as it exhilarates.
Jimi Famurewa, Empire
Boseman, who strides through “Black Panther” with unforced, charismatic ease, assumes almost Shakespearean levels of doubt as his character is challenged by an unexpected rival.
Ann Hornaday, Washington Post
A jolt of a movie, Black Panther creates wonder with great flair and feeling partly through something Hollywood rarely dreams of anymore: myth.
