Johnny Knoxville may have left Jackass in his rear-view mirror 16 years ago, but he’s managed to hang on to that mentality in at least one way: He still likes to do stunt work. In the new movie Action Point, which he also helped write and produce, Knoxville does all of his own stunts. (That might now have been the best idea — he wound up in the emergency room several times during filming.) Still, Knoxville is proud of the work that he did, and he thinks it made the movie better.

Four years after the original film was released, The Equalizer 2 continues the story of Robert McCall. Denzel Washington once again plays the retired CIA Black Ops agent who, in the new film, finds himself back in the thick of things when he learns an old friend has been murdered.

When he was handed the reins of Solo: A Star Wars Story, director Ron Howard was given a difficult task: satisfying the legions of die-hard Star Wars fans throughout the galaxy. Many directors would have gone directly to the Star Wars back catalog and immersed themselves in the lore and intricacies of the series. But while Howard has always been a Star Wars fan himself, he decided he wanted to take a different approach to making the movie.
Solo: A Star Wars Story, featuring Alden Ehrenreich as the young Han Solo, opens in theaters on Friday.
