Away from the controversy over whether the International Press Society members actually saw Wolf Of Wall Street before voting (hello tick box theory…), this year’s Satellite Award noms read as little more than the Ips’ Oscar predictions – give or take an extra three or four names in each category for comfort. Naturally resulting in a very uninteresting list, 12 Years A Slave leads the pack with ten nominations, followed narrowly by Gravity and American Hustle’s eight.
With strong turnouts in the acting categories, it’s surprising to see Lee Daniels’ The Butler, Dallas Buyers Club and Nebraska not contending for the big prize, and the Ips will surely find themselves in the minority for omitting Will Forte for his turn in the latter, even if it is rewarded for Best Ensemble. Though not appearing in the acting, directing or Best Picture categories, Fruitvale Station is still very much a focal point, »

Do not adjust your sets. This actually happened.
Ron Burgundy (Will Ferrell) has already hosted the EMAs, appeared in the advertising campaign for the new Dodge Durango and released his fictional autobiography, and the movie still won't be out for another three weeks.
The latest installment in Anchorman 2: The Press Tour Continues saw Burgundy appear on a North Dakota news station at the weekend. Ferrell plays it remarkably straight, reading from the autocue (he reads those out exactly, don't you know) and keeping improvisation to a minimum. It's probably the most real-life representation of the character, especially with the comically mundane VTs to which they throw ('grow your hair' month, a new easy-luggage system and a rubbish truck that caught on fire).
Watch the rather surreal half hour below...

Washington, Dec 04: The blaster pistol that Harrison Ford used in the Star Wars films 'Return of the Jedi' and 'The Empire Strikes Back' is set to go under the hammer at a starting bid of 200,000 dollars.
According to the auction site, the blaster is exactly in its original filming condition and therefore exhibits wear from use, but retains all of the original details, including the flash suppressor and scope, Fox News reported.
The website further added that the blaster is based on a German issue Mauser C96 pistol and was custom-made from resin for the 'Star Wars' films by casting the original hero prop from the first. »

Lucasfilm has launched the official Star Wars Instagram account, which in the coming months and years ahead leading up to the premiere of Star Wars: Episode VII in 2015, will be used to share photos from deep inside the production. From props, to wardrobe, to the SFX team, to the actors on set, Star Wars Instagram promises to deliver front door service. But first, since pre-production is still starting up and director J.J. Abrams is just now finding his sea legs in bringing the next thrilling chapter in this sci-fi saga to the big screen, we get Darth Vader sharing his first ever Selfie as he storms Tantive IV in search of stolen Death Star plans. Other photos so far include a behind-the-scenes shot from Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back with Mark Hamill as Luke Skywalker and David Prowse as Darth Vader during their epic light saber battle. »
If you have an extra few hundred thousand dollars lying around, you could could be the proud owner of Han Solo's original blaster that Harrison Ford used in the Star Wars films! It doesn't really look like much now, but it's a piece of cinematic history, and as Indiana Jones would say... "It belongs in a museum!"
Here are the details:
Estimated Price: $200,000 - $300,000
379. Harrison Ford "Han Solo" non-firing Dl-44 Blaster from Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi. (Tcf, 1980, 1983) Harrison Ford's charismatic smuggler, Han Solo, is arguably the most popular character in the original Star Wars trilogy. The space-scoundrel-turned hero's persona is irrevocably tied to his blaster pistol. Solo was modeled after the rogue gunslingers of the westerns that influenced creator George Lucas. This non-firing blaster was created for The Empire Strikes Back and was also used in Return of the Jedi. »

Hilarious. It.s almost 2014. We are a Social Media-obsessed culture. And so it only make sense that Star Wars needs to establish a cyber-presence on outlets like Instagram. And post a selfie. Did you just survive a shootout in a tight corridor on the Death Star? Share that victory, Jedi! I love the background of this shot. So funny. I can.t think of the last time anything associated with Star Wars had a culture-savvy sense of humor. Maybe the 1978 Star Wars Holiday Special, with guest stars Bea Arthur, Art Carney, Harvey Korman and Jefferson Starship!! It.s difficult to find a copy of the special with working audio (due to copyright issues), but this video pretty much sums up the Holiday Special . and the effect it had on people like Harrison Ford: So Star Wars fans, you need to start following the production on its official Instagram page. »

While the quality of the show itself has gone down, some would say notably, Fox continues to truly impress with the Blu-ray and DVD releases for the legendary hit. Not only do they include notable bonus material and great transfers but they have commentaries on every single episode. These are still the standard-bearers for television on Blu-ray and DVD. Go ahead, make fun of the quality of »

Harrison Ford is emerging as a formidable awards contender for his role in "42," as demonstrated today by his nomination at the Satellite Awards. It's a courageous screen turn. Rarely do we see Hollywood's leading men take on a colorful character role in the supporting slot, but Ford appreciated the challenge. "Branch Rickey was general manager of the Brooklyn Dodgers when Jackie Robinson was brought in to white baseball," he tells Gold Derby. "At that time there was tremendous resistance to integrating baseball. Rickey had strong moral conviction that not only would this be important for baseball, but it would be very important for America." -Break- On performing the role, he adds, "It was fun for me. I thought the story was really important and emotionally compelling. The kids today are growing up with just a few words in the history books around Jackie Robinson. They need to know what a »
12 Years a Slave continues to be the leader in the clubhouse when it comes to nominations. After leading the Spirit Award nominations it now leads the International Press Academy's (Ipa) 2013 Satellite Award nominations with a total of ten noms, followed by American Hustle and Gravity, each with eight nominations. The top five nominees were rounded out by Rush with seven nominations and Inside Llewyn Davis and Saving Mr. Banks with six nominations each. The Satellites, however, are an interesting bunch. As you can see there are several nominations in each category, leaving pretty much no stone unturned. I guess you could say no nomination for Octavia Spencer (Fruitvale Station) is a surprise and, in my personal opinion, with such a large field of nominees I'd like to see Joaquin Phoenix (Her) get a nomination, but that certainly isn't going to be a film for everyone even though Arcade Fire was »

This month sees a high-profile new release from Disney, a period drama starring Daniel Radcliffe and an eagerly-awaited comedy sequel that brings back a certain mustachioed San Diego news anchor.
Digital Spy rounds up the five movies you need to see this December below...
Release date: December 6
Why you should see it: Disney rediscovered some of its old magic with recent offerings Tangled and Wreck-It Ralph, but the House of Mouse well and truly hits it out the park with their take on Hans Christian Andersen's The Snow Queen. We've already seen Frozen (and given it an emphatic thumbs up), so start preparing yourself for a brand new all-singing, all-dancing Disney classic.
Release date: December 6
Why you should see it: Beat generation writers Allen Ginsberg, Jack Kerouac and William S Burroughs find themselves pulled into the murder of David Kammerer in this period drama from director John Krokidas. »
An inside source for JediNews has dropped their latest report from production on "Star Wars: Episode VII".
The most promising new factoid? That we'll see a famous location mentioned numerous times, but one that hasn't been realised on screen before:
"One small hint: Star Wars The Old Republic has added a planet that has long been mentioned but never seen on film."
The likeliest candidate to fit the description is the ancient Sith home world of Korriban. Their source also spoke about casting:
"Just this past two weeks I have heard the names of Emmanuelle Chriqui, Alexis Dziena and Taissa Farmiga all linked with roles - all exceptionally talented actresses. Whether any of them are cast is still unknown, but if you consider the quality of the people they are looking at - you can see the quality of the effort."
He also touched upon the return of Mark Hamill, »

Take a look at what a source known as "Jedi Master Sql" had to say.
"There is an exceptional level of work going into finding the right cast for the new films. Not only is the effort going further than any film in the history of the industry, but the real thought is going into the mix of the group and how they will look, interact and fit together. Every week I hear more amazing actors linked with the roles, and I feel that we will have an incredible cast when all is said and done. Just this past two weeks I have heard the names of Emmanuelle Chriqui, Alexis Dziena and Taissa Farmiga all linked with roles - all exceptionally talented actresses. »
Disney’s announcement last fall that they had acquired Lucasfilm and all of its intellectual properties was coupled with the exciting revelation that the Star Wars saga would continue in summer 2015 with Star Wars: Episode VII. J.J. Abrams was tapped to direct the project which was since been slightly delayed to December 18th, 2015.
Abrams is currently re-working the Episode 7 script by Michael Arndt (Toy Story 3) with the help of Lawrence Kasdan (The Empire Strikes Back) while also hosting auditions for any and every actor you can think of. No official casting confirmations on the talent front have been made by Lucasilm or its parent company, but multiple reports put the big three (Carrie Fisher, Harrison Ford and Mark Hamill) ...

In awards consideration, a voter tries to be objective. But when any human watches a film or TV show, they bring along all their thoughts and feelings about life — and death.
By any standard, James Gandolfini’s performance in “Enough Said” is a gem. But it is hard to watch the film without occasionally thinking about his shocking death in June at age 51. Should those thoughts affect his awards chances? Absolutely not.
In conversations, many people have told me they like the film, but they almost never mention him. If I bring up Gandolfini’s name, they say “He’s wonderful, it’s so sad, isn’t it?” or something similar. People don’t like to be reminded of death, and I fear he is getting more pity than appreciation, as if his performance belongs in a different, lesser category.
I just hope everyone will consider his work with the »
