Ford flying a plane in Raiders Of The Lost Ark
Harrison Ford was rushed to hopsital this evening after the plane he was flying crashed onto a golf course in Venice, California. He was given immediate help by two doctors who happened to be playing on the course and is understood to have suffered head injuries.

When Princess Leia and Lando Calrissian needed to infiltrate Jabba’s palace in “Return of the Jedi,” they couldn’t just waltz right in. Not with those famous faces. But while Leia opted for full facial absurdity, Lando chose a really strange helmet design. Over twenty years after Lando lost his hat (presumably to the Sarlaac Pit), costume designer Nilo Rodis-Jamero revealed to Star Wars Insider Magazine (Swim) just where the inspiration came from…a baseball glove. Image via Reddit During his interview with Swim, Rodis-Jamero recalled the Eureka moment: "[…] Every Friday afternoon, we used to run off to the ranch and we would play baseball. I remember jokingly putting a baseball glove on engineer Wade Childress’s head, and that was the birth of Lando Calrissian’s disguise." Rodis-Jamero had Childress pose for a few Polaroids and quickly sketched the rest of the design straight onto the photograph. However, »

Ever since Unbreakable was released 15 years ago, writer and director M. Night Shyamalan has been teasing a sequel. Every few years he'll mention that he still wants to make it happen, with the last update coming in 2013 when he said "it's getting closer." But maybe he should listen to a pitch from a somewhat unexpected place: comedian Patton Oswalt. The "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." guest star recently appeared on Screen Junkies to talk about his dream of seeing Unbreakable 2 happen, and he even has a basic idea for the story. But that's not all, because he has a plan to complete a trilogy with an Unbreakable 3 as well. Here's Patton Oswalt's pitch for his dream sequel Unbreakable 2 from Screen Junkies (via SlashFilm): Don't forget about Patton Oswalt's awesome Star Wars and Marvel crossover idea right here. If you don't have time to watch the whole video, we'll simplify it for you. »

Looking on this whole operation, one has to admit to the rather shady existence that Star Wars comics have right now. The entire enterprise of taking one of the most beloved film series of two, going on three, generations, publishing it through the most recognized comic book publisher on the planet, and all under the watchful eye of a multi-media conglomerate that made turning waves of children into life-long fans into a science is about as close to printing money as one gets. While this is all good for business, it results in Disney having a tight grip on any and all property associated with the franchise. As anything implied by Star Wars #1 and what little news has trickled in about the upcoming film, it’s that Disney »

He kicks butt; so does [costar] Jason Isaacs. I do, too. People die all over the place," the actress, 45, tells People of her latest project. Now that she's got some butt-kicking experience under her belt via the Jerusalem-set conspiracy theory thriller, would Heche's kids say she's a cool mom?"I don't know how cool it is, but on Saturday morning you will catch me on the couch with »

We know this because of two things. One: Mangold politely answered a fan’s question on Twitter, saying the Wolverine sequel starts filming “early next year.” And two: You’re going to go see The Force Awakens on the weekend of release, and there’s no use pretending you aren’t.
@R_0_B_89 early next year.
