I, for one, welcome our new amazing sci-fi overlord, Thandie Newton
It is a truth universally acknowledged that Thandie Newton is amazing and her unique dress at the Cannes Film Festival screening of Solo only further cements it.
On Tuesday night, Newton and the rest of the cast and crew of the upcoming Solo: A Star Wars Story were on hand for the film’s screening at Cannes and Newton’s dress paid special tribute to her Star Wars fandom (via io9).
While the dress is, according to Red Carpet Fashion Awards, a Vivienne Westwood Couture gown (for all you red carpet fashion nerds), what takes the dress to the next level would be the print overlays of other black characters from the Star Wars universe taken from Newton’s personal action figure collection.
As seen above, the dress includes Mace Windu, Finn, Captain Panaka, and a deep cut: Lando Calrissian in his Jabba’s Palace disguise from Return of the Jedi.
Check out this close-up for another view of how the figures are included in the dress’ pattern.
That is stellar fandom.
Of course, maybe Newton can add her own action figure to the dress as her Solo character, Val, is added to that all-too-small demographic (something that didn’t escape Donald Glover’s notice as noted in that excellent sketch from his recent Saturday Night Live appearance).
And, finally, just because it’s amazing and awesome, here is a photo of Newton standing with Glover, the young Lando himself.
One has to wonder what we did to deserve such an amazing pair together in one place, in one movie.

Ariana Grande and James Corden’s gave ‘Titanic’ a soundtrack update and it is amazing
If there were to be a remake of Titanic and you had to recast the roles of Rose and Jack, who would you choose?
After watching this Titanic soundtrack sketch from The Late Late Show your choice may just be Ariana Grande as the new Kate Winslet and James Corden as Leonardo DiCaprio.
The two performed an amazing five minute recap of the 1997 James Cameron classic, with an impressive set list of songs varying from Pitbull ft. Ke$ha’s “Timber” to One Direction’s “Steal My Girl.”
The ship’s collision with an iceberg is set to “Ice Ice Baby” by Vanilla Ice, and the whole thing ends with an emotional rendition of “My Heart Will Go On.”
If you’re still emotionally raw from watching Jack meet his death in the ice-cold depths of the Atlantic, you might want to skip over Corden’s blasphemous re-enactment of the scene to N*Sync’s “Bye Bye Bye.”
“There’s no room for me up on that door, baby. Bye bye bye!”
Ray Romano gets mad about Jon Hamm’s impression of him, which is very good
It’s hard to hate on Mad Men’s Jon Hamm.
But comedian Ray Romano took exception to Hamm’s impression of him on The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon on Thursday.
“He’s handsome and he’s funny, that son of a bitch,” Romano joked.
You’re damn right. Maybe we should be angry at Hamm, despite all of his positive, redeeming qualities and impressive acting skills.
Lindsay Lohan’s MTV reality show teaser looks weirdly like a self-produced beauty vlog
Everyone’s favorite Parent Trap twin is a long way from Napa. Lindsay Lohan’s new MTV series Lohan Beach Club (working title)is taking the actress turned nightclub mogul to Mykonos, Greece.
The show’s exceptionally short first preview features Lohan proclaiming, “Pack your bags, MTV. We’re going to Mykonos!”—as well as a few lingering shots of (what appears to be) her newest nightclub location.
Few details about the series have been revealed, but MTV exec Nina Diaz promised viewers “a behind the scenes look at how a young, successful entrepreneur runs her empire.”
Lohan and longtime friend Tiffany Trump (yes, of the presidential Trumps) hung out in Mykonos late last week, but images of the two palling around have since been deleted. This could mean official series screen time for Tiffany, but only time will tell.
Lohan Beach Club is expected to premiere sometime in 2019.
