The newest Star Wars edition set for release this May has been plagued with issues from the start. Reports of terrible acting from Alden Ehrenreich, the actor playing Han Solo, and a last-minute change of director are just two of many troubling stories coming from the set of Solo: A Star Wars Story. Will this be a major blockbuster of 2018? Sure. Is it deserving? Probably not. Stay home and watch the original Star Wars movies.
June 1 - Action Point
Johnny Knoxville and Chris Pontius of Jackass fame return to the big screen in an action/comedy movie about an amusement park that removes all the rules in an effort to boost business.
