When it was confirmed in February that Harrison Ford will reprise his role as Rick Deckard in Alcon Entertainment's Blade Runner sequel, you may have immediately started wondering who would join him in the new neo-noir, as Deckard's sure to run into memorable characters of both the human and replicant varieties.

The Fabric of Film: Tough Guy Wear

16 April 2015 2:06 AM, PDT | Clothes on Film | See recent Clothes on Film news »

In honour of The Times’ film critic Kevin Maher’s list of iconic movie rebels, we take a look at what it truly takes to make a tough guy in cinema.

What constitutes a tough guy, as in ‘man’, on film is usually a traditional interpretation of masculinity. There is always room for the sensitive hero in a sweater and slacks, but for those who watch movies as ingrained wish fulfilment, the sexy and sweaty man’s man needs suitable attire to reflect his personality. But it is not just about the garments themselves. A jacket is a jacket, but a leather jacket is a symbol. A wax jacket on the other hand is enlightened – the reformist hero.

Waxed cotton is fantastic stuff. Essentially it is a treated fabric, albeit one that needs regular re-covering to ensure longevity. The result is a lightweight, versatile material that, although not especially warm, »

Hilary Swank Talks Transgender Role in Boys Don't Cry: We Still "Have a Long Way to Go" With Acceptance

8 April 2015 6:44 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

When it comes to movie roles, Hilary Swank knows some have a little more impact than others. But one of the films that made great strides for an entire group was her portrayal of a transgender male in the 1999 film Boys Don't Cry. During an appearance on Thursday's all-new Meredith Vieira Show, Swank was asked about the progress made for the transgender community since the film's release. As it turns out, the actress believes we as a society still have some work to do. "I think we have taken strides since that movie, like you said 15 years ago," she explained to Meredith Vieira. "We have a long way to go." She continued, "It's astonishing to me that we are here »

Frank Ocean Announces New Album and Magazine Will Be Released in July

6 April 2015 8:25 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Just when you thought it might be time someone called a search party for Frank Ocean's next album, the low-key singer-songwriter updated his Tumblr on Monday with a double whammy: An album and a magazine are coming this summer. "'I got two versions. I got twoooo versions' #Issue 1 #Album 3 #JULY2015 #Boysdontcry," he wrote under his latest post, presumably a pic of him piling his forthcoming wares. Billboard confirmed with Ocean's reps that the artist's sophomore studio album and follow-up to Channel Orange, along with the mag, is on its way. The titles for both, however, have not been finalized. (If it is Boys Don't Cry, here are a few fun facts that could turn out to be related: The Cure released an identically titled single in 1979, and Hilary Swank starred in a 1999 movie of the same name, about Lgbt icon Brandon Teena's tragic life and death.) »

DVD Review: 'The Homesman'

23 March 2015 3:00 AM, PDT | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

★★★★☆ The Homesman (2014) is a rare and genuine entry into the Western film canon. It's lyrical. It's heartfelt. It's gruesome. Most importantly, it endows humanity to its cast of characters who are found bearing the brunt of a gritty life on the frontier of North America. Adapted from the Glendon Swarthout novel of the same name, this film marks Tommy Lee Jones' fourth outing as director and his third Western. Despite his firm directorial hand, its concerns are with the weight of grief and persevering nature of women in duress. After a particularly harsh winter in the Nebraska Territory, independent spinster Mary Bee Cuddy (Hilary Swank) finds herself tasked with the transport of three mentally and spiritually broken wives back to Iowa.

Desperate for a husband and family, but rejected by every man she’s propositioned marriage to, she lives a lonely life.

Josh Duhamel, Alice Eve Go Beyond Deceit

11 March 2015 7:06 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Josh Duhamel and Alice Eve have joined Anthony Hopkins and Al Pacino in legal thriller Beyond Deceit, to be directed by scribe Shintaro Shimosawa (Fox’s The Following) in his directorial debut.

Malin Akerman, Byung-hun Lee, Glen Powell and Leah McKendrick will co-star in the pic, which centers on an ambitious young lawyer (Duhamel, replacing Dan Stevens after the latter actor dropped out over conflicts with Beauty and the Beast) who takes on a major case against the ruthless executive of a pharmaceutical giant, only to find himself framed for murder.

Eve will take on the supporting role of his wife, but it’s unclear whether Hopkins or Pacino will be playing the chief antagonist. Adam Mason and Simon Boyes (red-hot SXSW selection Hangman) penned the script, which Shimosawa then rewrote.

Beyond Deceit is just one more screen credit for Duhamel and Eve, who are each racking up tons right now. »

'The Lazarus Effect' box office: Olivia Wilde and Mark Duplass horror movie arrives comatose (photo: Olivia Wilde in 'The Lazarus Effect') (See previous post: "'Focus': Will Smith Has One of Worst Opening Weekends of His Career.")

Blade Runner Sequel Director Announced, Harrison Ford’s Return Confirmed

26 February 2015 7:08 PM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

After all these years, the story of Rick Deckard will continue. A Blade Runner sequel started to pick up steam back in 2011 when it was announced that Ridley Scott would return to direct. While Scott is still creatively involved, it has been revealed that he'll be passing the torch to another director. What is still a big surprise, even after his involvement in the latest Star Wars film, is that Harrison Ford is set to reprise his role as Deckard:

Press Release via /Film: "Los Angeles, CA, February 26, 2015 — Harrison Ford will reprise his celebrated role of Rick Deckard in the sequel to Alcon Entertainment’s Blade Runner and Academy Award nominee Denis Villeneuve to (Prisoners, Incendies) is in negotiations to direct, it was announced by Alcon co-founders and co-ceo’s Andrew Kosove and Broderick Johnson.

Blade Runner Sequel Confirmed, Harrison Ford To Return

26 February 2015 6:36 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Deadline is reporting that at long last, the Blade Runner sequel has been confirmed, with Harrison Ford set to reprise his role as Rick Deckard. Unfortunately, Ridley Scott will not return as director, but in his place will be Prisoners helmer Denis Villeneuve.

The plan is for production to get underway in summer 2016 with Hampton Fancher (who co-wrote the original) and Michael Green penning the script. Plot details are, of course, scarce, but from what we understand the sequel will take place several decades after the events of the original (which makes sense given Ford’s age).

“We are honored that Harrison is joining us on this journey with Denis Villeneuve, who is a singular talent, as we experienced personally on Prisoners,” Alcon Entertainment’s Andrew Kosove and Broderick Johnson said. “Hampton and Michael, with Ridley Scott, have crafted a uniquely potent and faithful sequel to one of the most »
