If you are looking for a really unique piece of film history to give to someone for the holiday, you might want to hustle over to Invaluable where they are putting Han Solo’s DL-44 Blaster from The Empire Strikes Back on the auction block.
It’s been 50 years since the earth repelled an alien invasion, and now children are trained from a very young age to be military tacticians and leaders. Can genius child Ender Wiggin be the supreme commander that we need? Can the movie live up to the classic novel?
Harrison Ford has been repeatedly asked about the upcoming Star Wars Episode VII usually with an act of annoyance being his only response. Well, Conan O’Brien offered him $1000 to talk, and Ford accepted. Here’s what followed.
Ok, so there wasn’t anything new in that, but it was rather amusing.
This week, Zach travels to the future to see if androids dream of electric sheep, or if the dystopian future is just around the corner as he explores Ridley Scott’s 1982 film, Blade Runner.
According to Variety, Harrison Ford has been locked to star in Ender’s Game.
I’d say he’s smurfing smurfed. Luckily Cowboys & Aliens just beat out the Smurfs this past weekend at the box office, which doesn’t say a lot about the movie…
Harrison Ford was on Jimmy Kimmel Live to promote Cowboys and Aliens, and ran into an old friend/foe.
At times there seems to be a stigma attached to movie sequels. A lot of the time they have no purpose other than to capitalize on the name recognition of their popular predecessor. But there are times where the sequels live up to what has come before, or even surpass it on some occasions. Take the jump and see which movies made the cut, and Breakin’ 2: Electric Boogaloo sadly didn’t.
Cowboys and aliens. What more do you want in a movie? Okay, how about Harrison Ford and Daniel Craig being directed by Jon Favreau?
1875. New Mexico Territory. A stranger (Craig) with no memory of his past stumbles into the hard desert town of Absolution. The only hint to his history is a mysterious shackle that encircles one wrist. What he discovers is that the people of Absolution don’t welcome strangers, and nobody makes a move on its streets unless ordered to do so by the iron-fisted Colonel Dolarhyde (Ford). It’s a town that lives in fear.
But Absolution is about to experience fear it can scarcely comprehend as the desolate city is attacked by marauders from the sky. Screaming down with breathtaking velocity and blinding lights to abduct the helpless one by one, these monsters challenge everything the residents have ever known.
Now, the stranger they rejected is their only hope for salvation. As this gunslinger slowly starts to remember who he is and where he’s been, he realizes he holds a secret that could give the town a fighting chance against the alien force. With the help of the elusive traveler Ella (Olivia Wilde), he pulls together a posse comprised of former opponents—townsfolk, Dolarhyde and his boys, outlaws and Apache warriors—all in danger of annihilation. United against a common enemy, they will prepare for an epic showdown for survival.
With the casting of Cowboys and Aliens wrapping up and shooting about to get underway, the first image emerges from director Jon Favreau. It’s not much, a silhouette of “someone” dressed up in cowboy duds. The camera test at least lets us know the Platinum Studios adaptation is really happening, and not a bunch of hype.
Seems interest in Blade Runner is returning to an all time high – first it was Boom! Studios announcing plans to release a 24 issue maxi-series covering Philip K. Dick’s story, now I find out Profiles in History is auctioning off Harrison Ford’s Deckard gun from the Blade Runner movie.
Only one hero firing weapon was made for the production which was created by mating a Steyr-Mannlicher Model .222 SL receiver on to a Charter Arms .44 police bulldog double-action revolver. It features custom amber grips, dual triggers, and futuristic illuminating LEDs (four red and two green) that can be activated by a small switch mounted beneath the barrel.
If you want to pick this piece of awesome up, you’ll need to make sure you are recession proof as the gun is expected to sell between $100,000 and $150,000.Â And if you do pick this gun up, how ’bout helping your friends at Major Spoilers out?
I love Indiana Jones.Â Love the first three movies, the Young Indiana Jones Chronicles on television, and the comic books.Â Just listen to the Major Spoilers Podcast about all things Indy, and it is clear nothing did more in my formative years than Dr. Jones cracking the whip, cracking wise, and cracking the heads of Nazis.
While I liked Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, I didn’t care for Mutt Williams (aka Shia LaDoof) one bit.Â And the very hint that there might be a Mutt Williams franchise based off of this has me sick to my stomach.Â Perhaps the word has filtered to Mr. Lucas, because there’s a buzz that a fifth Indiana Jones movie might become a reality.
Harrison Ford said Friday that momentum is building for a fifth movie in the “Indiana Jones“Â franchise and that George Lucas is already cooking up a suitable plot for a heroic senior citizen with a penchant for whips and fedoras.
“It’s crazy but great,” the 66-year-old Ford said. “George is in think mode right now.”
Think wisely, Mr. Lucas.Â Think wisely.Â Keep Mutt Williams as far away from the next story as possible.
