Han Solo movie will reveal how smuggler ‘got his name,’ says Disney head

“That picks up Han Solo when he was 18 years old and takes him through when he was 24,” the CEO said. No, not even to you,” her husband replied. Show Full Article But you’ll also discover how he got his name.”
That last part – “how he got his name” – just launched a thousand fan theories. “So her performance, which we’re really pleased with, remains as it was in VIII.”
Now for the part that will relieve many fans of General Leia. Disney CEO Bob Iger made a statement Thursday that offered relief to the Star Wars fandom – then said another thing that sent it into a frenzy of shock. One had been an actor who actually passed away and was in an earlier Star Wars film,” he said, referring to Peter Cushing’s Grand Moff Tarkin. Here comes the part that   sent   the Star Wars fandom   into a tailspin. “There were a few things that happened [that were] significant in Han Solo’s life, like acquiring a certain vehicle and meeting a certain Wookiee, that will happen in this film. Otherwise, Iger said Disney and Lucasfilm are “just starting to talk about what happens to Star Wars after IX. Or did he just mean “name” as in “reputation”? “Nope. We have a creative team thinking about what could be another decade and a half on Star Wars stories.”
The 66-year-old, who also announced today he would be extending his contract to stay on as Chairman and CEO through July 2019,    said spending an afternoon talking about those possibilities counts as the “fun” side of his job. “It picks up where VII left off. If that’s the case, it sounds like lifelong fans are going to have a Don Draper/Dick Whitman situation on their hands. For more Star Wars news, follow @Breznican. “In Rogue One we created digitally a few characters. We’re really excited about it. He was speaking at the Scale – Future of Tech and Entertainment conference in a Q&A with his wife, journalist Willow Bay, when talk turned to the galaxy far, far away. Iger shifted to the young Han Solo movie, and broke some news about the plot. Whatever happens within the story, we won’t be seeing recently deceased actors resurrected in the franchise. I can’t disclose much about because that’s not what we do.”
“You can disclose a little about it, though,” Bay nudged. “I’ve seen [Episode VIII] and VIII is quite good,” he said about December’s The Last Jedi, directed by Rian Johnson. Whatever we hear back, we’ll pass along. And what I can say about that is, we’re not changing VIII to deal with her passing,” Iger said. EW reached out to Disney representatives for clarification of the meaning, but it sounds a lot like Han Solo isn’t this character’s original moniker. There’s debate about that, too. “We’re not doing that with Carrie.”
That sounds rock solid. “Every once in a while I’ll watch dailies on my laptop in my bed, under the covers, Particularly since we have teenage boys.”
The part he did reveal involved the fate of Princess Leia after the death of Carrie Fisher. Bay asked what he could share, and Iger said, basically, not much. “She appears throughout VIII. It turns out 2019’s still-untitled   Episode IX, directed by Colin Trevorrow, will have to deal with that sad reality all on its own.

John Mayer preemptively defends new video against cultural appropriation claims

“It was discussed at every juncture.”
He went on to say, “Part of cultural appropriation is blindness… I’m on the right side of the line because it’s an idea for the video that has a very multiethnic casting, and nobody who is white or non-Asian is playing an Asian person.”
Mayer continued, “Do I think that someone is going to tweet that this is cultural appropriation? “I think we were as sensitive as we could possibly be,” said Mayer in the interview, aware that this is an issue that might come up. Talking to the New York Times, Mayer said the upcoming video, which features a “disco dojo” comprising of a bamboo forest, a woman in a geisha outfit, and two people in giant panda suits does not fall under cultural appropriation, a criticism brought up when white artists use (often stereotypical) elements of other cultures stylistically without acknowledging the deeper meaning it might have within that culture. That’s why the   “Love On the Weekend”   singer is addressing some of the criticisms he might face when the music video for his new song “Still Feel Like Your Man” comes out. John Mayer is no stranger to controversy   — especially following his now-infamous interviews with   Playboy and   Rolling Stone. Yes… It’s going to be interesting to see.”

Mister Whitmore, the director of the video, also commented on the critique saying that both he and Mayer really thought about how to take on the “fantasy element” of the Mayer’s “ancient Japanese R&B” concept, which the singer describes as “disco dojo.”
“I hope there’s an understanding that we were sensitive to it,” said Whitmore. Show Full Article

Hard to say this early.”
The move won’t affect how season 2 will close. But the good news is we’ll have at least 22 episodes of Lucifer next season. They won’t feel very stand-alone because they are so character-focused.”

David Gahan reveals stories behind Depeche Mode’s biggest hits

EW:   It seemed like you were also really   starting to cement your relationship with Anton Corbijn as a director   around then. The acting stuff’s terrible of course. We literally recorded it in a couple of days. And Brits are weird, they don’t really forgive you for those early shortcomings   [laughs]. Just   a piano and   these very slow, ballad-y couple of verses. It’s a great line! [For “Silence,”] Anton came to me — he’s Dutch you know — and said [in clipped   Dutch   accent] “So Dave, I have an idea. I also moved to New York, and that was very cathartic for me, being part of life again. We’ve had a few big hits now and then, and we’ve had probably 50 top-30 songs, but we’ve never become a huge band like say, U2 or Coldplay or Oasis. EW:   Did the Johnny Cash and Marilyn Manson covers change your approach to performing it live at all, or your   appreciation   of the song? [Laughs]
“People Are People” (1984)

DG: This was the first song of ours that made a dent, really, into popular radio. [Legendary documentarian D.A.] Pennabaker, who made [our 1988]   concert film, described it as almost like a Grateful Dead experience — people that were as   rabid about Depeche Mode   as fans of the Dead were about the Dead. What are your choices?”   To me, America is built on all these immigrants—everybody coming here and making America “Great,” as Donald Trump would say. DG: I was in the studio recording a solo album, Hourglass, and Martin rang me because he’d heard news that Johnny Cash wanted to cover it, and he was kind of umming and ahhing about it, whether to give permission, and I was like “What are you,   crazy? We put it out like that, and I think we knew between us that there was something very special about it, but we had no idea what a huge hit it was going to be. We supported Elton John at a number of big stadium shows. I think it was more when we put out the video, which was shot in this sort of spaghetti-Western town, a very Ennio Morricone-type Clint Eastwood film setting. The girls, one was Budgie’s girlfriend from Siouxsie and the Banshees, then a couple were models, and they were a little older than us, so it was kind of exciting   to have them dance around us. I liked it. “Policy of Truth” (1990)

EW: Is it true that this is the only Depeche single that did better in the U.S. Our version is our version, and it always changes a little bit live, the way it swings, what you do with it. EW: John Lennon famously caused a firestorm when he said the Beatles were bigger than Jesus. DG: There was definitely some mutterings of complaint. Is that just a legend? DG: I do think that particular phrase was inspired by something Martin read in her book, where she talked about Elvis being [Southern-belle accent] “her own personal Jesus,” and I think that struck a chord with him. And that’s what New York is, a melting pot for all these different races and religions. You’re gonna wear a crown. It’s hard to tell if those are your real girl friends, or just good casting. And it’s a great version, just fantastic. Of course I’m going to help her! We used to go into studios, and the first thing we’d do, we’d ask where the kitchen was — literally for pots and pans and things that we could throw down the stairs, and record the rhythms they would make crashing around, and then make it into loops. We had a group of friends at the time who would go to these different clubs, dressed like we were in the video, sort of leather-y stuff. DG: I think it was, yeah. And we were in such remote places — like, five miles up in the Alps walking in the snow, in the Algarve in Portugal on these remote beaches, at Balmoral in Scotland, where we could walk for days and days and not see anyone. But once we started and he showed me the footage I got what he was doing: The man who has everything, but really feels nothing. But you have to call it what it is, and not paint it as something else. I feel a little bit of shame as well. Funny enough, when Martin first came up with a demo for “Silence,” it was kind of half a song. [Laughs]
EW: How did you feel   when   the Gap used the song for that ad   in the late ’90s? With Brexit and everything, and   then Donald Trump running for president, of course, we were like, “Is this really happening? The line really spoke to me. That was kind of the beginning of the end for me. I learned how to [whispering] sing very quietly and very close to the microphone, to use all the noises in my voice to be able to create this creature, this thing, and “Dream On” was one of those songs lyrically where it was a character that I was becoming, that I could be without all the misery. You’re this king walking everywhere, and you’re gonna carry a deck chair…” And I didn’t get it at all. Read on for his   recollections   of throwing pans down stairwells, saying yes to Johnny Cash,   and censoring rogue horse tails. That’s what it is: Enjoy what you have here. I could step into it, and step out. We didn’t go on tour with that album, thank God. They said, “Get out of the studio and come back in two days.” When we came back, Flood said to Martin, “I need you to come up with a guitar line,” so Martin started to play this riff, and that was it. And of course the majority of people are all feeling the same. And I do want to be here.”
But that record is one of my favorites, “Barrel of a Gun” in particular, because I think Martin was also playing with this imagery as well, sort of pointing the finger at me. When I perform that song now, it really describes the way I felt at that time: This creature that was barely existing, but somehow still thought he had it going on [laughs]. EW: Was that your first real music video? “Where’s the Revolution” (2016)

EW: This one is   pretty overtly political. “Dream On” (2001)

DG: I was getting much healthier, and I was in good shape when we made this album. We’ve always remained sort of a cult thing, although that’s changed a bit with this new record. I don’t know what they were thinking. With his glass-cut jawline, gleaming black leather, and thousand-yard stare, Dave Gahan looks like a man it would be a mistake to mess with: part gothic rock star, part   dark-arts   assassin sent through the Matrix to take down   music journalists who ask   dumb   questions. Was there any blowback from you taking the Lord’s name in vain, so to speak? No, of course not, it’s never gonna happen.” These songs were written a while ago, but they were written with the backdrop of all this stuff going on, and it’s impossible to not affected by the craziness of the world. We   weren’t actually making music for the masses, but suddenly we were playing to sold-out arenas   in Texas and weird places that we thought we’d never sell records. I was still dabbling in the idea that I could play that game and also still continue my life, but the gig was up. We seem to be in a really interesting time, a time of weird change and values and choices, and “Who are you really? I don’t see that kind of hatred or racial intimidation. And the little performance parts are kind of cool. After nearly four decades fronting synth-rock godheads Depeche Mode, the singer, 54, seemed happy to settle in and look back on some of the group’s best-known songs, from   their early-’80s postpunk experiments to the politically charged lead single from their 14th studio album,   Spirit, out now. So I don’t know what the f–k he’s talking about. On “Dream On,” I was experimenting a lot with my voice, learning how to do different things in the studio. The punk thing had just kind of ended, but there were still a few people who were hanging out in the clubs in London, who were trying to play music that you could dance to a bit more that wasn’t so violent, and “Just Can’t Get Enough” became one of those. I see it on the subway, too. There were some parts in the video where a horse’s tail is switching and you see its butt, and they were like, “You can’t use that!” And we were like,”Where are your minds at? “Heaven” (2013)

EW: This was a no. You’re saying to the listener, “Come on people, you’re letting me down” and calling them “patriotic junkies.”
DG: We live very wonderful, privileged lives, and we’re very lucky and fortunate, but it doesn’t mean we stop caring. For me, it’s like Bowie songs — they carry me, and they continue to, even though he’s gone. “Just Can’t Get Enough” (1981)

DAVE GAHAN: I was maybe 18, almost 19. Then he said “Dave, go sing,” and I did. It’s just shameful to me. In the middle of making it we stopped completely, and I had to go into a treatment place to get taken care of. It’s quite literal, very poppy, all major cords — something Martin doesn’t like so much these days   [laughs]. Mark Bell who produced that record — he actually died a couple of years ago, he’s not with us anymore, unfortunately — but he taught me some interesting things about using my voice because he had been working with Björk before that, and he brought in a lot of the things   she was doing with her voice into the studio.   I think that song has kept him in cornflakes for many years. Show Full Article But it really propelled the song to another dimension, and so did Manson’s version of it. Too much fun, actually   [laughs]. Especially New Yorkers. It was just a little moment but it was like, f—, I felt so ashamed, that she would even be thinking maybe, possibly [I wouldn’t be kind to her]. 1 dance hit, but there’s a   great lyric — “I dissolve in trust/ I will sing with joy/I will end up dust” —   that feels   so spiritual, almost like a religious ecstasy. I was also writing a lot of my own songs, which shortly after this album became Paper Monsters, but it was made very clear to me that they weren’t going to become part of Exciter and I was okay with that. So I was allowed that time to get it together, and I’m grateful for   that. I also got arrested during the course of that album, busted in Los Angeles, and then I was in real trouble. DG: With [1987’s]   Music for the Masses, we were being pretty arrogant. “Barrel of a Gun” (1997)

DG: This   was a weird time for me. I mean, I have a son now who’s about to turn 30, one who’s about to turn 24, and a daughter who’s about to turn 18, which blows my mind when I think that’s how young we were when we were traveling the world and doing these things, having a lot of fun. DG: I think so. We were the odd ones and we embraced that, because that’s kind of who we were as well, growing up. I remember we went to his publisher’s at the time and they sat us all down and they said, “You know, Vince, you’re going to be driving a Rolls Royce when these lot are still on a tandem,” pointing to me and [bandmates] Martin [Gore] and Fletch [Andy Fletcher]. Those two years when we were making that album and I had to go back and forth to court to prove to the judge that I’d stayed clean, it gave me this time to suddenly realize, “Oh, I can do this, I can crawl my way back, I can get better. You talk about us being weird — this sexual suggestion of a horse’s ass…” [laughs]. Martin was spot-on with his lyrics. At that point I was struggling just to sing. “Personal Jesus” (1989)

EW: The story has always been that Martin Gore got the title from Priscilla Presley’s memoir. She was a Muslim lady, and she looked at me a little bit — I mean, I’m a bit intimidating, I’m sure [laughs]   — and she sort of stopped. You’re not going to be here forever, but the songs stay forever. When I look at it I’m like, [covering his eyes] “Oh my God.” But that’s kind of what videos were then — low budget. You can’t live in New York without being part of it. Then we started messing with the song, trying to make it more than it was, and it never needed more. DG: He became like the visual side of what we did. But when he comes to the door of his Manhattan hotel room — the Essex, England native has lived in New York City for years, though his record label has rented a   suite   for a press day — he dispels the dark cloud with a wide, disarming smile and a warm handshake. We were growing up, and   it was all happening   in the spotlight. And Alan [Wilder] and Flood, who was producing the album, had this idea to put a beat to it. Everything that was in there that other video directors up until that point hadn’t really got, and we weren’t in any position to tell them what to do. I mean, I don’t even know if the song was written about me, or for me, or poking at me to say “For f–k’s sake, get your s–t together!” But it worked. Where’s the revolution, and what does it mean to you? But the song really propelled us into a new cosmos at that particular time. But that album [Speak & Spell] was very much a Vince Clarke album, and he owns the rights to that song of course, so it’s been in so many commercials and it pops up. It’s not one   of Martin’s particular favorites, this one, and I don’t think we’ve done it live since the mid ’80s. But most of the time it’s proven to have worked, right? And Rod Stewart,   which was bizarre, but the song became a no. The video leaves a lot to be desired. England is our home country and we’ve had continued success there — to a limit. There were some shots that were removed, but some of them stayed. Was I going to help her? Violator was one of those moments too, but I think it’s because it was the country where “Just Can’t Get Enough” and those songs first made a dent. And it probably was true! And you can do a lot with it, because it’s a great rock & roll song. That’s like Elvis asking, of course you let him do it!”   And he was like [mumbles] “Oh yes, well, I guess,” in his very Martin sort of way. 1 hit in a lot of countries in Europe, and   it allowed us to then go off and create the music that we wanted to create. We spoke to people that felt a little different, the ones with way too much eyeliner, the ones in schools that were bullied or had to run home. DG: The thing is, the song is written by Vince Clarke, who was in the band for like five minutes, and went on to be part of Yaz and Erasure. I mean this morning, I was going into the grocery store very early, and there was this woman who was struggling with a bunch of bags. It was like a cult following. It’s got a humor in it too as well, and there’s always this weird dark humor within a lot of Depeche Mode   songs that people miss, tongue-in-cheek and also very British, but it was in that song for sure. I was actually grateful for being arrested, for the judge that promised me that I   would   go to prison if I didn’t stay clean, because I listened to him and something clicked. DG: It’s a great phrase. I think I would have died. And then she smiled at me. “Enjoy the Silence” (1990)

EW: This was the first big blast   from   Violator, an album that really turned you into superstars. We all live on this little island together and somehow get on, some days. I wasn’t feeling particularly confident during the making of Ultra, and I had some rough times during it. than the U.K.? He really got the music, the landscape-y part of it, and the film noir-y part of it and the darkness, the sexuality. We were using all these tape loops to create rhythms and the technology was quite advanced, but it wasn’t anything like it is today, the things that you can do. I couldn’t stand up in front of a microphone for longer than 10 minutes without literally lying on the floor, I was that weak.

First transgender bride on ‘Say Yes to the Dress’ wants to show ‘trans people can love and be loved’

The New Jersey-based hairdresser brought a few friends along and most importantly, her mom, which made the moment even more special. She submitted her application, and a week later she was in. “Seeing her say over all these years, ‘Oh mom, I’m never going to find anyone, I’m never going to get married.’ And with how people have treated her. “I just wanted to have an experience, and to show that we as trans people can love, and be loved, in a normal setting, and do things that are not out of the norm,” she says. “This whole wedding, and getting engaged, and dress shopping with my mom — it’s been such an amazing feeling for me, because as a trans woman I never thought that I would ever get married,” Gibson, 33, tells PEOPLE ahead of her history-making episode on Saturday. My fiancé shows me off to the world, and treats me like his queen, and shouts from the mountain tops that he’s with me, he doesn’t care that people know that I’m trans.”
While Gibson says she wasn’t initially seeking   attention, she now hopes telling her story will help the broader transgender community. After her fiancé Jaden proposed, Gibson set up an appointment at Kleinfeld’s, and found out they were   looking for new brides to feature on the show. I’ve seen her cry so much, and it’s been a long journey to get to this point,” her mom, Frances Colon-Gibson, says in an exclusive clip from the episode. “I was like, I have to get my hair done, I have to get a haircut. “Me and my fiancé were just in shock, and it still hasn’t worn off. “I’m such a fan of the show, and I’ve seen people’s dreams come true, and I wanted my dreams to come true.”

‘Life’: EW review

But it is a really fun one. Life isn’t a great movie (in fact, it’s kind of a mess). They just know that they’re trapped in a tight space with something very, very angry. It’s also adaptive and intelligent and aggressive. Suddenly, there’s a seventh member onboard. What could be? He giddily broke and pushed all of them, combining what were dismissed as two distinct and disreputable gutter genres (science fiction and horror) and fusing them into one glorious chest-bursting hybrid. You could be intelligent and graphically gooey at the same time. Life doesn’t aspire to be art. It’s not giving anything away to say that from this point on, Life is basically a zero-gravity bodycount flick —   And Then There Were None in space. As much as it wants to be, the new deep-space thriller Life is no Alien. When Ridley Scott directed his 1979 no one-can-hear-you-scream masterpiece, there were still rules to break and boundaries to push. Still, if you lower your sights a few pegs and go in looking for a solid, tight B-movie that builds right until the final shot, there’s a lot to like. But Bakare’s scientist is too smitten with his new discovery to absorb any of this until it crushes his hand like a walnut in a vise and breaks loose, squishily scampering through the ducts and vents. They’re making a pitstop on their way home from Mars, where they found microscopic evidence of single-cell life forms, and they’ve got the history-making specimens with them. I only bring up Alien because that’s how the movie is being sold. B+

Show Full Article Then again, what is? That’s when the movie zaps to life too. In fact, it was possible that by doing so you could even approach something like art. Which is fine. If it feels like Life succeeds in spite of itself, the important thing is that it succeeds. From Coinage:   The Five Biggest Hollywood Bombs of All Time

Espinosa and his screenwriters, Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick (the team behind Deadpool), don’t make us care about the crewmembers as much as they probably think they do. Not everything has to. Then again, watching smart people make dumb choices is one of cinema’s deepest pleasures. Director Daniel Espinosa (Safe House, Child 44) gets off to a somewhat muddled start, fumbling what could have been a concise table-setting tour of the spacecraft, but instead he turns it into a murky maze. The crew tries every way it can to kill the thing, but Calvin won’t die. We never really know where we are. But they more than make up for it as soon as Bakare zaps the Martian amoeba to dancing life. No one onboard knows what they’re dealing with and how deadly it might be. Somehow it manages to keep pushing enough joy-buzzer buttons to keep the audience on edge until the last scene. All we know is that it’s dark and as cramped and claustrophobic as a casket, which is essentially what we know it will become over the next hour and a half. Life tracks the fates of six astronauts aboard the International Space Station. What was once minuscule and harmless is now as big as an octopus, as transparent as jellyfish, and as fast as a cockroach when the lights come on. Who knew? I kept waiting for Jeff Goldblum to show up on their communication screen to say, “Life…uh…finds a way.” Espinosa stages some clever scares and creative kills while the crew make one bone-headed decision after another in their bid to survive (they have a particular knack for opening hatches when they should stay closed). The introduction of the crew and their gumbo of accents is only slight more coherent: There’s Rebecca Ferguson (Mission: Impossible—Rogue Nation) as the no-nonsense rep from the Centers for Disease Control; Jake Gyllenhaal as the slightly depressive chief medical officer; Ryan Reynolds as (what else?) the wisecracking scientist tossing off Re-Animator references; Ariyon Bakare (Jupiter Ascending) as the ship’s exobiologist with withered CG legs (which seems like a very pricey method of character building); Russian actress Olga Dihovichnaya as a Boris-and-Natasha-sounding cosmonaut; and Hiroyuki Sanada (The Wolverine) as a Japanese engineer and proud father of a newborn back on Earth. They name it “Calvin.” And it’s growing fast.
