In the featurette, which Warner Bros. isn’t dropping yet, Harrison Ford says, “It’s fun to play a character 30 years later and trying on old clothes and luckily they still…
Sony Motion Picture Group chairman Tom Rothman has one message for those who think fans won’t be rushing to the theaters to see “Blade Runner 2049”: “Netflix, my ass.” The studio chief dropped the zinger while debuting new footage of the “Blade Runner” sequel to exhibition industry professionals at CinemaCon, with star Ryan Gosling on...

‘Star Wars’ legend Mark Hamill has shared what’s thought to be the first ever image of him as the iconic Luke Skywalker. Hamill, who’s a keen user of social media (largely Instagram and Twitter), posted the photo of him on the Tunisian set of 1977’s ‘Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope’ (as it became known). Posting to his Instagram and Twitter accounts – both @hamillhimself – the actor described the image and how it was “perhaps” the first ever snap of him in character.
Original ‘Blade Runner’ star Edward James Olmos has confirmed he’s returning for the sequel ‘Blade Runner 2049’, having filmed a single scene. The actor who played Gaff, the Cityspeak-spouting, origami-making vice cop who tracks Harrison Ford’s Rick Deckard to a noodle bar, revealed the news during an interview with The Trend Talk Show.
SANTA ANA, Calif. (AP) — Newly released video shows a small plane piloted by Harrison Ford flying low over an airliner with 116 people aboard moments before he mistakenly landed on a taxiway at a Southern California airport.
Harrison Ford flew ‘dangerously close’ to a commercial passenger plane while flying his own private aircraft, according to reports. According to NBC News, the 74-year-old ‘Star Wars’ actor was landing his single-engine plane at John Wayne Airport in Orange County, California, on Monday when the incident occurred. Rather than the runway he was cleared to land on, he instead flew over an American Airlines 737 passenger plane bound for Dallas with 110 passengers on board.
It may have taken over 5 weeks but ‘Rogue One: A Star Wars Story’ has made a billion dollars. Gareth Edwards’ ‘Star Wars’ spin-off has, as many pundits predicted, crossed the $1 billion mark at the worldwide box office, having taken 39 days to do what ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ breezed to in just 12 days. Clearly it’s unfair to compare the two. ‘The Force Awakens’ was the first film for the franchise since 2005’s ‘Revenge of the Sith’ and marked an anticipated return that was not only directed by JJ Abrams, but featured classic stars like Harrison Ford and the late Carrie Fisher.
Denis Villeneuve’s sci-fi sequel ‘Blade Runner 2049’ was shrouded in mystery until its stunning teaser trailer released late last year.
Film fans everywhere have been wowed by the recent teaser trailer for ‘Blade Runner 2049,’ Denis Villeneuve’s long-awaited follow-up film to Ridley Scott’s 1982 science fiction classic ‘Blade Runner.’ However, devotees of the original film are likely to have one key question they’re dying to get an answer to. An adaptation of Philip K Dick’s novel ‘Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?’, ‘Blade Runner’ follows Harrison Ford’s cop Rick Deckard as he hunts down illegal replicants – artificial human beings – in a dystopian future of 2019 (which seemed so far away at the time).
Denis Villeneuve, the man who has been tasked with crafting the sequel to the sci-fi noir classic ‘Blade Runner’, has confirmed that ‘Blade Runner 2049’ will be R-rated. After the release of the mesmerising first trailer for ‘Blade Runner 2049’ there were some concerns that the film could be diluted down to appeal to as large an audience as possible, something that the likes of ‘Terminator 3’ and ‘Die Hard 4’ have both done in previous years. “My producers are finding it fun to remind me that it will be one of the most expensive R-rated independent feature films ever made,” Denis Villeneuve confirmed.
The first trailer for ‘Blade Runner 2049’ has been released by Warner Bros. and it’s pretty impressive. Featuring Ryan Gosling and Harrison Ford, directed by Denis Villeneuve fresh from his ‘Arrival’ success, and produced by Ridley Scott, ‘Blade Runner 2049’ looks set to be as stylish and inventive as the 1982 original. The weird, glitchy soundtrack – presumably by ‘Arrival’ composer Jóhann Jóhannsson – combined with the gorgeous Roger Deakins cinematography instantly puts us back into the neo-noir world we last visited over 30 years ago.
‘Blade Runner’ fans, the time is coming. According to reports, the first trailer for the long-awaited sequel will arrive before the end of the year. The website Trailer Track (via Den of Geek) says that as of yesterday, classification body Consumer Protection BC has officially approved and rated a trailer for ‘Blade Runner 2049’, and it runs at just over a minute-and-a-half. It’s thought that it will be attached to the Sony sci-fi ‘Passengers’, starring Chris Pratt and Jennifer Lawrence. ...
Ryan Gosling in ‘Only God Forgives’ and Harrison Ford as Indiana Jones. Ryan Gosling is a great actor and always comes across as a sound bloke as well, but he’s also incredibly handsome – and for that reason there’s a small part of us that would quite like to punch him in the face. While we may never get to knock that gorgeous face down a peg or two, Hollywood legend Harrison Ford did – albeit by accident.
As more detail drip feeds from Carrie Fisher’s new memoir ‘The Princess Diarist’, so too does more insight into the ups and downs of the Star Wars actress’s fascinating career. “I had become a poor rich person,” she writes, adding that Star Wars had not been the cash cow for her that many presumed it was.
According to Fisher, who has detailed their shenanigans in new memoir ‘The Princess Diarist, Ford and Fisher first got together following a party to celebrate George Lucas’s birthday. “I looked over at Harrison.
According to Carrie Fisher, she and Harrison Ford had an intense affair while filming the original ‘Star Wars’ movie. The 60-year-old ‘Star Wars’ actress details the encounter in her new memoir, ‘The Princess Diarist’, which reveals the three-month affair with the then-33-year-old father of two. After stumbling upon her angst-ridden journals from during her time filming the original ‘Star Wars’, Fisher explained that she felt it was the right time to come clean.
George Lucas’s first iconic creation ‘Star Wars’ has already been shepherded to huge critical and commercial success without him – and it seems much the same is happening with Indiana Jones. Speaking to Collider, screenwriter David Koepp says Lucas is “not [involved in ‘Indiana Jones 5’], to my knowledge. While Lucas neither directed nor wrote the screenplays on any of the existing four ‘Indiana Jones’ films, the character is his creation, and he conceived the stories on all the films as well as serving as executive producer.
The British firm Foodles Production Ltd have been fined £1.6 million because of the accident on the set of ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ that resulted in Harrison Ford breaking his left leg after a malfunctioning hydraulic metal door crashed onto it. Ford also suffered a “deep laceration” to his left hand, which required plastic surgery. The incident took place back in June 2014 at Pinewood Studios in Buckinghamshire when Ford was 71.
Denis Villeneuve, the man tasked with overseeing a follow-up to Sir Ridley Scott’s iconic ‘Blade Runner’, has admitted that working on the film is “terrorising” him. Villeneuve made this admission to The Hollywood Reporter while at the Venice Film Festival, where his latest film ‘Arrival’ premiered to widespread critical acclaim. As you’d expect, the conversation soon turned to ‘Blade Runner 2′, which is due out in October, 2017, and has just begun production.
