Harrison Ford Signs on to Blade Runner 2

8 hours ago | QuietEarth.us | See recent QuietEarth news »

Harrison Ford has officially signed on to reprise the role of Rick Deckard in the upcoming Blade Runner sequel with filming set to begin sometime next year without Ridley Scott in the director's chair. He will instead set his sights to adapting Martin Weir's "The Martian" with Matt Damon in the lead.

Scott's departure from directing the project makes me wonder whether it also means he'll be unable to helm Prometheus 2, which was originally skedded for release in 2016.

Star Wars, Jurassic Park, more: 9 original trailers for classic movies

11 hours ago | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

The huge level of hype surrounding movie trailers doesn't seem like it's going to subside anytime soon. "First looks" and teaser premieres seem to have more currency in film fandom than the actual movies themselves these days.

With the big unveiling of the Jurassic World teaser this week and the incoming promo for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Digital Spy has decided to look back through the archives to see how the art of cutting a trailer has changed over the years.

1. Star Wars

"Somewhere in space... this may all be happening right now!" This opening voiceover doesn't quite have the same ring to it as "a galaxy far, far away", and without the John Williams score or polished sound mix it just doesn't really feel like Star Wars at all. Still, this first-ever trailer didn't put off audiences from seeing the finished film in the summer of 1977.

2. Jurassic Park »

‘Blade Runner 2′ To Shoot In 2015 With Harrison Ford

20 hours ago | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Ridley Scott has been giving an update on Blade Runner 2, confirming that Harrison Ford will return as jaded replicant hunter Deckard, but in a smaller role. As for the master stylist who helmed the influential but troubled original, there’s disappointing news – Scott is out of the director’s chair, acting as producer only. With cameras set to crank up next year he elaborated a little about what the sequel would contain:

We (Scott and first film writer Hampton Fancher) talked at length about what it could be, and came up with a pretty strong three-act storyline, and it all makes sense in terms of how it relates to the first one… Harrison is very much part of this one, but really it’s about finding him; he comes in in the third act.

This suggests a new set of characters, getting around the thorny topic of having an ageing »

‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ Trailer Hits This Friday

21 hours ago | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

If the approaching arrival of Christmas wasn’t enough to get you excited, then how about an early treat in the form of a trailer for one of next years biggest releases? Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens is the first part of a new trilogy after Disney bought the rights to the franchise. Directed by J.J. Abrams, it will follow old and new characters alike, as the Star Wars saga continues. We’re not sure what footage will be released just yet, but you can bet it will be tantalising given Abrams’ track record of fantastic teasers. Star Wars announced the release of the trailer via Twitter, perhaps in an attempt to keep shoppers from destroying themselves at Black Friday events. The trailer will be released online, but also shown in select Us theatres. These theatres (listed below) will screen the trailer in front of every single film they show over the weekend. »

Will the 'Star Wars: Episode VII' teaser live up to the franchise's previous trailers?

26 November 2014 4:39 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

After months of on-set reports, wild rumors, tweeted photos and cryptic interviews, Disney and J.J. Abrams are releasing the very first teaser trailer for "Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens" on Friday. Moviegoers are sure to see some familiar faces and designs, plus new characters, creatures, ships and planets that will have fans speculating about what they're seeing in the same way they  did in for 1977's 'Star Wars" and 1999's "The Phantom Menace." Abrams is even more secretive than most Hollywood directors, and he loves to misdirect (remember the Khan confusion prior to the release "Star Trek Into Darkness"?), and the teaser will likely be a true tease that avoids any kind of narrative twists.  With that in mind, it's time to turn back the clock to re-visit the ever-evolving teasers released in advance of all six films. It's a list a billion of years in the making. »

Star Wars: The Force Awakens teaser to air on TV tomorrow?

26 November 2014 11:25 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With excitement building for our first look at Star Wars: The Force Awakens this coming Friday, it seems that Disney and Lucasfilm may be set to give us an earlier peek, if a new rumours from StarWars7News is to be believed.

According to the site, Lucasfilm is set to celebrate Thanksgiving tomorrow by airing a shorter version of the 88-second trailer for The Force Awakens, likely during an NFL game, before releasing the theatrical trailer in select U.S. theaters on Friday. This is of course rumour, but it would certainly go some way to explaining why the Jurassic World trailer was released ahead of its scheduled Thursday debut.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens is set for release on December 18th 2015 and sees returning stars Mark Hamill (Luke Skywalker), Harrison Ford (Han Solo), Carrie Fisher (Princess Leia), Anthony Daniels (C-3Po), Kenny Baker (R2-D2) and Peter Mayhew »

New ‘Star Wars’ Films Need to Awaken the Power of Millennials

26 November 2014 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Luke Skywalker conquered the Dark Side in the previous “Star Wars” movies. His latest mission, in J.J. Abrams’ “Star Wars: Episode VII — The Force Awakens,” is to capture Millennials.

The freshly rebooted saga will inevitably be a box office smash for Disney, the studio now behind the franchise, but for it to continue as a multi-billion-dollar juggernaut, it will need to speak to a generation of 20-year-olds raised on “The Hunger Games,” “Avatar” and “Harry Potter,” franchises that may feel more digitally savvy than Han Solo, Princess Leia and the growing generations of Skywalkers.

The first of Abrams’ planned films, due out in December 2015, aims to set up an endless array of sequels, prequels and spinoffs. But, if Disney wants the saga of a galaxy far, far away to expand, it can’t just be embraced by the Baby Boomers and Gen-Xers who were weaned on the original trilogy in the ’70s and ’80s, »

Blade Runner 2 is shooting in 2015, Ridley Scott not directing

26 November 2014 1:04 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Ridley Scott will not direct Blade Runner 2 when it begins shooting in 2015.

The director revealed the imminent start date for the long-awaited production, as well as confirming that Harrison Ford will reprise his role as Rick Deckard in the movie.

"Harrison is very much part of this one, but really it's about finding him," Scott told Variety.

"He comes in in the third act."

In the interview, Scott also addressed the 'whitewashing' of his latest project Exodus: Gods and Kings, saying that he could not have pulled in the high budget and tax rebates if his lead actor had been "Mohammad so-and-so from such-and-such".

Scott developed the sequel to his 1982 Philip K Dick adaptation with his Blade Runner co-writer Hampton Fancher.

Blade Runner 2: Ridley Scott won't direct, Harrison Ford will appear

25 November 2014 10:37 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Harrison Ford will return for Blade Runner 2, but Ridley Scott will be handing the job of directing the film over to someone else...

Ridley Scott is a man whose slate of projects never seems to dwindle, and inevitably, he can't get around to directing them all himself. His latest movie, Exocus: Gods And Kings, arrives in cinemas next month, and then he's straight off to make his next, the adaptation of Andy Weir's excellent book The Martian (that Matt Damon will star in).

As a consequence of that, it'd been assumed that he'll be handing directing duties of Prometheus 2 over to someone else. But as it turns out, he's not going to be directing the mooted Blade Runner 2 either.

Scott has been involved with the project, developing the film alongside Hampton Fancher (who co-wrote the original). "We talked at length about what it could be, and came up »
