The Time Steven Spielberg Wrote a Fan Letter to Dwayne Johnson

30 June 2015 6:00 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Chris Pratt may be one of the fan favorites to take over the role of Indiana Jones, if such a re-casting ever happens. But is he Steven Spielberg's first choice? Or might the director of all four existing installments of the Indy franchise prefer someone larger, more athletic, more charismatic? Dwayne Johnson does not have a lot in common with the original Jones, played by Harrison Ford, but why should a reboot be anything like its predecessor? Johnson can cook up something new, and Spielberg already seems to have a taste for what the former pro wrestler has to offer.  We know Spielberg is an admirer of Johnson's because Johnson posted a photo of himself to Instagram a couple months ago reading a fan letter from the filmmaker. Here's what it said, as revealed...

"Force Awakens" Lineage & Trooper Spoilers?

29 June 2015 10:22 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Potential "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" Spoilers Ahead

One of the longest running rumors about "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" has been that at least one if not several of the characters would be the offspring of the original cast members.

In particular Daisy Ridley's Rey character has often been suggested to be the daughter of Han Solo (Harrison Ford) and Princess Leia (Carrie Fisher). Others have suggested the offspring of Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) will play a part in the plot.

Making Star Wars has posted a report dismissing those rumors, saying:

"None of the heroes... the kids... are Solos or Skywalkers. Rey is not a Solo. It would not knock me on my knees to learn she is a Solo. VII does not answer that question. It just presents it. We have not seen anything to make us think the girl is the daughter... yet."

'Star Wars 7' Rumor May Confirm Who Rey Is or Isn't

29 June 2015 12:38 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

When the full cast of Star Wars: The Force Awakens was announced last April, fans wondered how new cast members Daisy Ridley (Rey), John Boyega (Finn), Adam Driver (Kylo Ren) and Oscar Isaac (Poe Dameron) fit into the story. Over the past year, their characters were eventually confirmed, and fans should learn much more about the highly-anticipated sequel at Comic-Con this year. While we wait for the annual convention to start, a new rumor from Making Star Wars reveals new details about Rey and the other main characters' parents. There will be potential spoilers below, so read on at your own risk.

There has been plenty of speculation that at least some of these characters are the offspring of Han Solo (Harrison Ford), Princess Leia (Carrie Fisher) or Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill). For instance, Rey is reportedly "drawn to" the Millennium Falcon and she "instinctively" knows how to repair it

Great Movies With Questionable Trailers

28 June 2015 1:24 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Every now and again a movie trailer comes along that is all kinds of wrong for the movie it is trying to promote. This is a list of some of the worst head scratchers.

Just because a movie is good doesn’t necessarily mean that its trailer is as well. Many times the filmmakers responsible for the film itself don’t have much input (if any) into the trailer. When that happens, the trailer can end up misinterpreting the intent of the film. At other times, the trailer may try too hard to get audiences interested in the film, going so far as to show all the  best parts from the film. This includes giving away the twists or the ending, such that people who may have watched the trailer before seeing the film already know how it ends. This is a look at some of the worst offenders, those »

Slow West movie review: dark horseplay

26 June 2015 4:12 AM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

Michael Fassbender is never not worth watching, and his unique blend of cynical smarts and weary humor is perfectly suited to this bitterly funny road trip. I’m “biast” (pro): adore Michael Fassbender

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

Michael Fassbender. What else do you need to know? Michael Fassbender is never not worth watching, and that remains the case in Slow West. This is basically The Frisco Kid — you remember, that 1979 comedy with Gene Wilder as a rabbi and Harrison Ford as the scoundrel who helps him get across the Old West to San Francisco — as remade by the Coen Brothers. It’s far more Coen Brothers than the Coens’ own actual Western remake, True Grit, in fact, and Fassbender’s unique blend of cynical smarts and weary humor is perfectly suited to this dry, bitter road trip through »

Greg Grunberg says Star Wars: The Force Awakens is all about “the story and family”

26 June 2015 3:46 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

If there is one thing Star Wars: The Force Awakens has done well (despite its heavily publicised production) is keeping its story a secret. We’ve had two trailers already, but we don’t actually know all that much about the plot of J.J. Abrams’ new adventure in a galaxy far, far away.

One of its stars Greg Grunberg however has given some details about the theme of the movie in an interview with Entertainment Weekly.

“I can only say that practical effects are as important—if not more important—than the special effects,” the actor said. “And it’s all about the story and family. I mean that’s what J.J. is all about. And these new characters, these actors are unbelievable. They’re so well cast. We got our script pages, only the scenes that we were in. Not even what was being shot that day! »

Indiana Jones named greatest movie character of all time in new poll

24 June 2015 1:34 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Swashbuckling adventurer played by Harrison Ford takes top spot in Empire survey despite studio Disney preferring to focus on new Star Wars movies

Indiana Jones has been named the greatest movie character of all time ahead of James Bond, Batman and Han Solo in a new poll.

Harrison Ford, 72, takes two places (Jones and Solo) in the extensive survey of 10,000 film fans for Empire magazine, but there is only one female character, Alien’s Ellen Ripley, in the top 10. Sigourney Weaver’s battling warrant officer lands in fifth ahead of The Joker, Die Hard’s John McClane, Fight Club’s Tyler Durden, Darth Vader and The Dude from the Coen brothers’ The Big Lebowski.

5 things you didn’t know about the Jurassic Park franchise

Luke Owen with 5 things you didn’t know about the world of Jurassic Park

With Jurassic World now officially the fastest movie to reach the $1 billion mark (in just thirteen days!), it seems as though the world has gone back to 1993 and dino-mania is running wild once again.

To celebrate the success of the movie, we’ve looked back through the history books to bring you five things you may not know about the Jurassic Park franchise.

1. Harrison Ford was nearly Dr. Alan Grant

Harrison Ford has always had a great working relationship with Steven Spielberg and his partner in crime George Lucas. Not only was he the star of Spielberg’s ode to adventure serials of the 1930s and 40s, Raiders of the Lost Ark and its subsequent Indiana Jones sequels, but he was also featured in American Graffiti and the Star Wars trilogy, the products of George Lucas. »

'Star Wars 7' Went to Great Lengths Keeping the Script Secret

23 June 2015 10:15 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

How much do we really know about Star Wars: The Force Awakens? According to star Greg Grunberg, probably a lot less than we think. Sure, there have been plenty of Star Wars rumors over the past couple of years offering the plot outline. But the production crew went to such great lengths to keep the script secret, we can count on a lot of that past information being wrong. In fact, the franchise's most iconic actors, including the holy trinity of Carrie Fisher, Harrison Ford and Mark Hamill, were not allowed to take the script home to memorize their lines.

Greg Grunberg, best known for his role on Heroes, was revealed last week to be playing an X-Wing Fighter Pilot. He is locked in for the next two movies following Star Wars: The Force Awakens, but not much more is known about his role. Some have called him »

The Top Father's Day Films Ever Made? Here Are Five Dads - Ranging from the Intellectual to the Pathological

22 June 2015 4:02 AM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

'Father of the Bride': Steve Martin and Kimberly Williams. Top Five Father's Day Movies? From giant Gregory Peck to tyrant John Gielgud What would be the Top Five Father's Day movies ever made? Well, there have been countless films about fathers and/or featuring fathers of various sizes, shapes, and inclinations. In terms of quality, these range from the amusing – e.g., the 1950 version of Cheaper by the Dozen; the Oscar-nominated The Grandfather – to the nauseating – e.g., the 1950 version of Father of the Bride; its atrocious sequel, Father's Little Dividend. Although I'm unable to come up with the absolute Top Five Father's Day Movies – or rather, just plain Father Movies – ever made, below are the first five (actually six, including a remake) "quality" patriarch-centered films that come to mind. Now, the fathers portrayed in these films aren't all heroic, loving, and/or saintly paternal figures. Several are »
