The most exciting movies set to drop in the coming months.
As always, there are far too many sequels, spin-offs, remakes and reboots clogging the cinemas, but surely some will be worth the effort. Release dates are subject to change, of course, but there's still an exciting bunch spread throughout the year. Here are our most highly-anticipated films (not in chronological order).
1. Solo: A Star Wars Story (May) - This film may have been mired in production chaos, but we still want to see this origin story about Han, Chewie and Lando. And that cast is superb.
2. Widows (Nov) - Steve McQueen directs this female heist thriller starring Viola Davis and Michelle Rodriguez. More girl power: Red Sparrow (Mar), Ocean's 8 (Jun), Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again (Jul), Mary Poppins Returns (Nov).

Judy Carne, the actor best known for her role in Rowan & Martin's Laugh-In, has died at the age of 78. Carne died at Northampton Hospital on Thursday (3rd September).

Judging by recent history, Pitt still stands a chance.
Brad Pitt never expected to win an Oscar. He said as much during Sunday night’s Governor’s Ball. Speaking to E! News, Pitt said: “"I don't know where I'm going to put it. I never thought I'd take one home, so I haven't thought that far in advance.”
The cast of 12 Years say the film couldn’t have been made as it is without Pitt’s reach and influence in the film industry. For his part, however, the producer is most grateful for McQueen’s director, as he said in his acceptance speech. "Thank you all," Pitt said in his acceptance speech.
'12 Years A Slave' will be hitting 1,000 theatres across the US as the studio bid for one final push at the box office before its DVD release on March 4th.
Steve McQueen's Oscar-winning feature film '12 Years A Slave' has been granted an expansion in US theatres.

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie once again made sure all eyes were on them at last night's Academy Awards as they led the Hollywood royalty down the red carpet whilst looking very much the loved-up pair. The acting duo were virtually inseparable when posing for photos on the red carpet, making sure they were always touching and flashing dazzling smiles.
Brad Pitt & Angelina Echoed The BAFTAs In Their Oscars Union.
After last month's BAFTAs in London where the couple appeared in a matching tuxedo ensemble, Angelina decided to opt for a more feminine look at the Oscars and picked out a sparkling metallic and sheer gown by Elie Saab Haute Couture with diamond earrings and smoky eyes. Brad, as usual, played it safe with another classic and well-cut tuxedo and bowtie.
