'Star Wars': Han and Luke Had a Touching Farewell Moment in Deleted 'Return of the Jedi' Scene

1 hour ago

It wasn't going to be the last time they saw each other, but Han and Luke had a touching farewell scene that was cut from opening of Return of the Jedi

The moment, which takes place in a sandstorm on Tatooine immediately after Han is rescued from Jabba the Hutt, is far more impactful than the scene actually in the film, which is just the two men talking over the radio. 

Having been the hero on numerous occasions, Han (Harrison Ford) realizes he finally owes Luke (Mark Hamill) for saving him from the galactic gangster. 

The dialogue, for the most part, is the same »

2 hours ago

Close behind was Fox’s main production arm, which collected 12 nominations, for The Post and The Greatest »

Golden Globes: Don't Expect The Academy To Follow the Hollywood Foreign Press' Lead

3 hours ago

Being nominated for a Golden Globe is like being asked on a date during senior year of high school: it's exciting and flattering and only a good thing, but it doesn't mean it's time to start shopping for an outfit for prom — or, in this metaphor, the Oscars — quite yet.

That's because the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, which announced its nominations for the 75th Golden Globe Awards this morning, is a very different group than the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, which will announce its nominations for the 90th Oscars on Jan. 23. The »

Oscars: South Korea's Brutal Pro-Democracy Movement Revealed Through 'A Taxi Driver'

3 hours ago

The fourth feature from director Jang Hoon, A Taxi Driver tells the story of the Gwangju Uprising, a watershed event in the evolution of South Korean democracy.

It was 1980, and South Koreans had lived under the authoritarian rule of president Park Chung-hee for 16 years until his assassination in 1979. A pro-democracy movement was gaining momentum, but hard-liner Army Gen. Chun Doo Hwan, who had just seized control of the government in a coup, declared martial law and suppressed protests around the country — as well as the press' reporting on them. Residents of the southwestern city Gwangju refused »

'Phantom Thread's' Vicky Krieps on Playing Daniel Day-Lewis' Last Leading Lady

4 hours ago

Vicky Krieps only met the real Daniel Day-Lewis once, when they got together in London to read through the script for Paul Thomas Anderson's 1950s dark comedy Phantom Thread. "I remember standing in the hotel lobby and suddenly there was a man with a hat and an earring," she says. "I realized, 'Oh, my God, I think it's Daniel Day-Lewis!' Because in his movies, he's always so much the character, you almost don't have this idea of him as a person."

Weeks later, when Krieps, who grew up in Luxembourg, got to set to shoot opposite Day-Lewis (in »

Creepy Agents, Shady Managers and the Plight of Hollywood's Non-Famous Actresses

4 hours ago

When I was 6, I decided I wanted to be Shirley Temple. I was set on it. Cut to years later, and I'm finally walking down the halls of a major Hollywood agency. The agent I meet informs me his assistant said that I had a "special look." After a quick chat, he offers to mentor me. I agree while nervously bringing up representation. But he never had me read. He never checked on my education. What he did was ask me to have sex with him.

I laughed it off and tried to veer the conversation in another direction. »
