During the 2018 Grammy Awards, Sting and Shaggy announced their album collaboration, 44/876. The announcement came as a surprise because at first glance they make for strange bedfellows.
Despite their different backgrounds, Sting and Shaggy have always been apt pop musicians. With Shaggy, Sting finds a light Caribbean flavour. The album also sees appearances by reggaeton star Daddy Yankee, Robbie Shakespeare of Sly and Robbie, and dancehall act Aidonia.
Alden Ehrenreich steps into the iconic Han Solo role for Solo: A Star Wars Story. The second stand-alone film from the sci-fi franchise. The film also stars Woody Harrelson, Emilia Clarke and Donald Glover as a younger Lando Calrissian.
Saoirse Ronan and Laurie Metcalf star in the Oscar-nominated Lady Bird, a coming-of-age story about a high-school senior who is desperate to escape her hometown of Sacramento, California. Ronan and Metcalf shine as mother and daughter whose relationship ebbs and flows throughout the film.
Killing Pace opens in Everglades City, Florida, two months after a woman named Lisa Green crawled barefoot and bleeding out of a terrible car accident. Lisa is unable to figure out where she is, how she got there and, most important, who she is. Her boyfriend, Roland, has been nursing her back to health under close watch. Despite her amnesia, Lisa hasn’t lost her ability to reason. And reason tells her that she is not Roland’s girlfriend — she is his prisoner. What follows is a high-octane international chase, which involves U.S. Border Control, the Sicilian Mafia and a shadowy organisation specialising in trafficking infants taken from Syrian refugees and made available for adoption to wealthy American couples. Lisa must figure out whom she can trust and how to stay alive.
