Donald Glover Is Staying Away From 'This Is America' Critics

Solo Premiere: How the Mysterious Star Wars Spinoff Played to Its First Audience

Donald Glover's pushed his agent to get an audition for the role of Lando Calrissian after hearing there would be a "Star Wars" movie made about the young Han Solo.

It's not the first directorial-disagreement that's occurred on the set of a Star Wars film.

Everyone expected Disney to leverage its most popular movie franchises for its planned streaming video platform, and now we know that a live-action series set in the Star Wars universe is in the works.

AT&T CEO: We made 'big mistake' hiring Cohen, chief lobbyist out
The company is defending its merger with Time Warner in federal court against the Justice Department's efforts to block the deal. The company said it was contacted by Mueller's office in November , though now considers its role in that inquiry closed.


What with all the re-shoots, new directors, and rumors of certain actors not embodying their lead role as a certain smuggler in a certain galaxy far, far away, expectations for Solo: A Star Wars Story haven't been high.

The following two days would be spent on Hollywood Boulevard, and when we arrived Disney's construction crews were already setting up for the "Solo: A Star Wars Story" world premiere.

The audience also seemed eager to reward the appearance of major pieces of Han Solo's iconography in the film. Hopefully, they'll be some of their humour for us to see, but don't go into the movie expecting to see a whole lot of it.

Spotify Removes R. Kelly From Its Playlists After Sexual Misconduct Allegations
Spotify has announced a new policy on hate content and hateful conduct and says Kelly's alleged behavior falls under that policy. Just last week, Hollywood's Time's Up Movement launched a campaign entitled #MuteRKelly in an effort to silence the singer.


Perhaps the main star of this premiere was the 31-year-old Emilia Clarke, who, selecting a long red dress with white flowers from Valentino, looked just gorgeous. Stars walked along the red carpet channeling the dark side, the light side and every side in between in designer duds!

"Because I have to, do you know what I mean?"

It's worth remembering that premiere reaction is always a bit biased - these people have got to see the film early, surrounded by the cast at a glitzy event, and probably got free food and drink.

Selena Gomez pokes fun at her Met Gala 'Oompa Loompa' look
Mysteriously, Gomez disabled comments on the post, which has since amassed over 3.6 million likes. Selena Gomez sure knows how to make an entrance.


However, while it would nearly certainly be a master stroke to see Kit take a swipe at playing a character in the Star War universe - especially a Jedi - what seems to be a huge oversight on the interviewer's part is that Luke actually has an origin story.
