Sean Young, the actress best known for starring opposite Harrison Ford in Ridley Scott’s “Blade Runner,” has accused Harvey Weinstein of sexual harassment. The actress said on the Dudley and Bob with Matt Show podcast that Weinstein exposed himself to her in the early 1990s, when she was starring in the Miramax-produced film “Love Crimes.”
“I personally experienced him pulling his you-know-what out of his pants to shock me,” she said. “My basic response was, ‘You know, Harvey, I really don’t think you should be pulling that thing out, it’s not very pretty.'”
Young never worked with Weinstein again after the incident. “Then never having another meeting with that guy again, because it was like, ‘What on earth?’” she said.
“The minute you actually stand up for yourself in Hollywood, you’re the crazy one, »

Harrison Ford must love Halloween because as you’ll see below he definitely gets into it. Of course if you think he would dress up like one of his iconic characters then you’re dead wrong since Han and Indy are nowhere to be seen on this list. I know, go shed a tear and then come back, you’ll no doubt be pleasantly surprised since Harrison Ford tends to amaze at almost everything he does it would seem. No really, the guy is just that awesome that he can get away with almost anything and people will love him, even if it
Harrison Ford’s Halloween Costume Game is Pretty Incredible »
There have been a ton of great movie characters in the history of film, but only one can be the best. According to a new poll, we now know who people feel that character is. Harrison Ford's iconic, whip cracking, snake fearing adventurer Indiana Jones was recently named the greatest movie character of all time, according to a poll conducted by Total Film Magazine. Jones is someone who should definitely place in the top 5, but coming out on top of a poll like this is pretty impressive.
The poll also features another iconic Harrison Ford character, with Han Solo coming in third place. Though, it's easy to imagine that he could have just as easily taken the top spot. Batman, with no particular Batman being mentioned, came in second place. The first female character on the list is Sigourney Weaver's Ellen Ripley from the Alien franchise, who placed fourth. »
David Fincher is not known for operating within Hollywood’s franchises – remember, Alien 3 almost forced the director into an early retirement. But it turns out Fincher was almost drawn to the biggest franchise of the lot.
While appearing on a recent instalment of the Empire Podcast (via Collider), the esteemed filmmaker recalled the moment when he passed up the chance to direct a Star Wars sequel for Lucasfilm. Fincher stopped short of mentioning any specifics – was it The Last Jedi, for instance? Or one of the studio’s forthcoming anthology pics? – only that he “talked” with producer Kathleen Kennedy about what he considers to be a “plum assignment.”
But while the thought of signing on for Lucasfilm’s faraway galaxy is tempting, David Fincher pointed to the heightened expectations that come hand-in-hand with a modern blockbuster. And, well, let’s just say Star Wars is on another level in that respect. »

Can you imagine what a David Fincher Star Wars movie would look like? It turns out, Lucasfilm wanted to know, but it's never going to happen. That's right, David Fincher did indeed meet with Lucasfilm's Kathleen Kennedy at one point about directing a Star Wars movie, but he passed on the opportunity because it scared him. Here's what he had to say about it.
"No, I talked to [producer Kathleen Kennedy] about that and look, it's a plum assignment. I don't know what's worse: being George Lucas on the set of the first one where everyone's going, 'Alderaan? What the hell is this?' Where everyone's making fun, but I can't imagine the kind of intestinal fortitude one has to have following up the success of these last two. That's a whole other level. One is that you have to endure the withering abuse of Harrison Ford and Carrie Fisher, and the »

One of the great surprises of “Blade Runner 2049” was a stunning CG recreation of the Rachael replicant played by Sean Young in the original movie. The two-minute sequence brings an emotionally stirring reunion with Harrison Ford’s Deckard that required technical virtuosity and subtle performance. This major step in digital human animation should be rewarded with a VFX Oscar nomination.
Body double Loren Peta played the young Rachael (in costume, makeup, and with dotted face) and performed on set with Ford and Jared Leto (as replicant manufacturer Wallace). She was directed by Denis Villeneuve, with Young on set as well for reference. The goal was to merge the two into a perfect replica.
Facial Capture on a Secret Saturday
“Denis really liked Loren’s performance when it was cut together, but part of our plan was to do a facial capture of Loren and Sean,” said Oscar-winning production visual »

“Joan Didion: The Center Will Not Hold” is a documentary that’s incisive and haunting, like Didion’s best writing. It includes interviews with Joan Didion culled from over the decades, but it’s centered on one conducted by the film’s director, Griffin Dunne (who’s her nephew), in which Didion, in her early 80s, appears before us as a kind of wizened elfin patrician soothsayer. The skin on her hands is like parchment, with purplish veins bursting through, and her face — still beautiful, now timeless — is so creased with experience that even in repose, she looks as if she’s laughing and crying at the same time. Yet with just a few words, Didion’s diamond clarity of mind can cut the air.
The writers who became the celebrated literary sensations of the 1960s look, if anything, even more glamorous today than they did then; one now gazes back with a touch of awe on »

Blake Lively knows her gender can sometimes limit the roles she can play.
The All I See Is You star sat down for Vanity Fair's "The Limelight" podcast, where she illustrated the inherent sexism in Hollywood casting by pointing out the parts her husband can do vs. the "likability" she and other women have to maintain.
“I mean, my husband plays a**holes [but], you go, ‘He’s so charming.’ Because he is likable . . . or you look at Harrison Ford as Han Solo and he’s like, ‘Get over here, sweetheart,’ and you just sort of [think], ‘Whoo, it’s so exciting and romantic and titillating.’ It’s because he’s charming and he’s loving and he’s not some sexist a**hole," the 30-year-old actress reasoned. "But, you don’t see that and think, ‘Oh, that guy’s not likable.’"
"But you would read on a page and you just know, 'Oh, it’s a man »
It’s one of the most discussed questions in science fiction cinema of all time. Rick Deckard, the central character of 1982’s Blade Runner, is employed to hunt down human-like androids called replicants. But could he actually be a replicant himself? The original film doesn’t give a clear answer, which has left the door open for discussion on the topic. Two director’s cuts released over the next two decades added in additional important materials to be taken into consideration, but the mystery remained.

Whether or not Deckard is a replicant lies at the heart of “Blade Runner” and its evolving themes of artificial intelligence and free will. However, it’s also been one of the most debated elements around the original film for decades. “Blade Runner 2049” doesn’t quite come out and answer the question, but according to Ridley Scott, the entire story doesn’t work if Deckard is human.
On the Empire podcast, the director of the original and executive producer of the sequel explains how before shooting on ‘2049,’ he met with Harrison Ford to clear one thing up.

Sean Young is an American actress who has appeared in a number of well-known movies such as Dune, Wall Street, and Ace Ventura: Pet Detective. However, her single most famous role was the replicant named Rachael in Blade Runner, who managed to shake some of the titular character’s most fundamental beliefs. With that said, Young’s minimal involvement in Blade Runner 2049 has been noted, which stands out all the more because Harrison Ford returned to reprise his role as the ex-blade runner Rick Deckard. What Was Sean Young’s Role in Blade Runner 2049? Since Blade Runner 2049 has not been
