Can 'Cowboys & Aliens' Save Harrison Ford's Career?

15 November 2010 3:41 PM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Harrison Ford better hope next summer’s “Cowboys & Aliens” can resurrect his faded star. After 10 years of bombs, his career is on life support. It's been a tough spell for the screen legend.  With the possible exception of “Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull,” Ford has spent the last decade in the box-office wilderness. Moreover, though "Kingdom" made $786 million worldwide, it was far from universally loved. “Firewall,” “K-19: The Widowmaker,” and “Hollywood Homicide” all arrived in theaters with a whimper. This year has brought the anemic double billing »

Harrison Ford-Diane Keaton-Rachel McAdams' Morning Glory Withers: Box Office

11 November 2010 5:24 PM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Diane Keaton, Harrison Ford, Morning Glory Todd Phillips' comedy Due Date, starring Robert Downey Jr and Zach Galifianakis, topped North America's box office for the third consecutive day on Wednesday, Nov. 10, collecting $2.57m according to Box Office Mojo. After six days, Due Date has grossed a total of $40.1m, or about $5m less than Phillips' The Hangover on its debut weekend in summer 2009. At no. 2, Dreamworks' Megamind, featuring the voices of Will Ferrell, Tina Fey, and Brad Pitt, brought in $2.31m, up a surprising 23.8% from Tuesday. At no. 3, Roger Michell's Morning Glory, starring Harrison Ford, Diane Keaton, Rachel McAdams, Patrick Wilson, and Jeff Goldblum, landed with a mere $1.06m at 2,518 locations, or a paltry $424 per theater (vs. $768 for Due Date and $587 for Megamind). There was a time when Harrison Ford could do no wrong, no matter how poor the material. Following Hollywood Homicide, [...] »

8 Milestones in the Evolution of Harrison Ford

10 November 2010 2:10 PM, PST | Movieline | See recent Movieline news »

Assuming you count Hollywood Homicide, Harrison Ford makes his return to comedy after a seven-year absence in today's Morning Glory. But how did Ford get to this point after his big-screen debut wayyyy back at the tender age of 24? You can always trace a direct line through a handful of roles (not necessarily his best roles, mind you) to illustrate what led to an actor's current success, and with Ford, though still well respected, that line has had a bit of a downslope as of late -- well, until today. Let's look at eight performances -- including his very first -- that trace the evolution of one Harrison Ford. »

[Review] Morning Glory

9 November 2010 2:02 PM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

It’s hard to know how much to expect from Morning Glory going in. Written and directed by the people behind easy, enjoyable fare like The Devil Wears Prada (Aline Brosh McKenna) and Notting Hill (Roger Michell) but starring perennial A-listers Diane Keaton and Harrison Ford alongside up-and-coming A-listers Rachel McAdams and Patrick Wilson, it promises the witty, nuanced characters of a James L. Brooks film with the shamelessly accessible comedy of a Nancy Meyers rom-com.

Sure enough, Morning Glory is the love child of both. Even the film’s setting, the “Morning News,” fits the bill: something that provides some intellectual depth underneath a thick shell of cooking tips and sensational journalism. Becky Fuller (McAdams) is the newly fired/newly hired upstart producer looking to turn ‘Daybreak’ (the fictional morning show for fictional network channel Ibs) around for a brutally honest, brutally sarcastic executive played by Jeff Goldblum with a surprising amount of vinegar. »

Emmy-Nominated Director Jenny Ash Developing Bob Marley Biopic

18 August 2010 9:46 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Jenny Ash, the UK director who has received an Emmy nomination for her work on the documentary miniseries America – The Story of Us, is developing a biopic on the life of legendary reggae artist Bob Marley.  Deadline reports that the “feature will concentrate on the year Marley spent living in London in 1977. This was a crucial year for Marley. He’d fled Jamaica after an attempt was made on his life; the year ended with him sustaining a soccer injury which eventually triggered full-blown cancer.”  Ash, whose two-hour segment of the 12-part America miniseries covered slavery and the Civil War, also sees the movie as a love triangle between Marley, his wife Rita and Jamaican beauty queen Cindy Breakspeare, whom Ash has spent time with in Jamaica.  I presume the denouement of that story won’t be about college students who love Marley because he shared their love of getting high. »

Weekend Briefing: 'The Other Guys,' 'Step Up 3D' Try to Stake Out Audiences

6 August 2010 11:20 AM, PDT | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

This weekend, The Other Guys bust onto approximately 5,000 screens at 3,651 locations, while Step Up 3-D gets the party started on close to 3,000 screens at 2,435 locations. Inception, which has reigned for three weeks, will still be in the mix: its continued weekday strength suggests another slim decline. The Other Guys marks the second buddy action comedy of the year, following Cop Out. The sub-genre has generally been quite popular, including such past titles as 48 Hrs., Lethal Weapon, Bad Boys and Rush Hour (and their sequels), although there have been a number of flubs in recent years, such as The Man, Hollywood Homicide and Showtime. Cop Out performed modestly, opening to $18.2 million and closing with nearly $45 million, though another like-minded comparison for Other Guys would be Starsky & Hutch, which started with $28.1 million (or the equivalent of around $36 million adjusted for ticket price inflation) back in 2004. Other Guys' marketing campaign has been clear and consistent in its message, »

Peak Performances (At Last)

15 June 2010 2:00 PM, PDT | backstage.com | See recent Backstage news »

There's no such thing as an overnight success. What may look like luck is generally the result of years of hard work, close calls, and major disappointments. Back Stage recently spoke with three actors—who are enjoying major turning points in their careers—about the roles that helped to change things. The Actor: John HawkesThe Roles: You may not know the name, but odds are you'll recognize the face, as Hawkes has appeared in countless films and TV programs over the last two decades. Audiences generally are familiar with him from three wildly different roles: the doomed fisherman in "The Perfect Storm," Sol Star on HBO's Western "Deadwood," and Miranda July's unlikely love interest in "Me and You and Everyone We Know." But it's his fierce, unforgettable turn in Debra Granik's Sundance hit "Winter's Bone" that has stirred Oscar talk for the actor. As Teardrop, a dangerous criminal »

Yes! Harrison Ford Will Star in Cowboys and Aliens

8 April 2010 10:55 PM, PDT | Movie Cultists | See recent Movie Cultists news »

After a few days of rumors, director Jon Favreau confirmed over his Twitter account that Harrison Ford was cast in the upcoming Cowboys and Aliens.

He wrote: “Please stop asking if Harrison Ford is in Cowboys & Aliens. Okay? He is. Please don’t tell anybody.”  (He then proceeded to not write anything else for a day and a half, presumably because DreamWorks was giving him a very strict lecture on The Way Things Are Done.)

It’s unclear what role he’ll be playing, because Daniel Craig has already been cast in the lead (taking over for Robert Downey Jr., who dropped out thanks to a busy schedule).  And Olivia Wilde, of House and Tron Legacy, also co-stars.

But still: Harrison Ford, man!  In the past few years, aside from Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, what has he done?  Extraordinary Measures, the immigration indie Crossing Over, »

Harrison Ford Joining The Good Fight In ‘Cowboys and Aliens’?

6 April 2010 2:00 PM, PDT | The Flickcast | See recent The Flickcast news »

While Harrison Ford is still sitting back in his chair, maniacally laughing at what he did to millions of Indiana Jones fans with the last film (I’m only assuming it was done with nefarious intentions), he has been pretty laid back on the “getting a job” front.

After a few bombs like Extraordinary Measures, Firewall, and Hollywood Homicide, one would think that the actor would make Oscar-worthy career moves like his peers Bill Murray or Jack Nicholson. Instead, it seems he’s possibly taking the more popular route, and signing to do a comic book film.

In a recent article from Latino Review, they threw out the statement that Ford is about to join a “huge comic book movie to be directed by a director coming off a soon to be released huge comic book movie.”

With hard-hitting journalism like this, we’re led to believe that Ford is »

Stars To Wash The Feet Of The Homeless This Easter

31 March 2010 8:30 AM, PDT | Look to the Stars | See recent Look to the Stars news »

The Los Angeles Mission will make a difference for the homeless this Easter – with a little help from celebrity friends.

The Mission will serve 3,000 meals, provide Easter baskets with toys for children, and wash the feet of the homeless on Good Friday. Why feet washing? Easter Week foot washing is a Christian tradition – memorializing that Jesus washed the feet of his disciples the night before he was crucified. Many who are on the streets seldom have normal loving human contact – and this outreach of food, foot washing with podiatric care and new shoes is a way of inviting them to learn about the Mission’s services, including its long term program of restoration – in order to get off the streets permanently. The Los Angeles Christian Health Center uses this opportunity to address the foot problems suffered by many on the streets of Skid Row.

Presumed Innocent and Frantic (Thriller Double Feature) Blu-ray Review

15 March 2010 9:58 AM, PDT | TheHDRoom | See recent TheHDRoom news »

Two movies sharing one Blu-ray disc. Sounds intriguing but is it a gimmick or bargain? Warner would have you believe the latter with their new series of "Double Feature" high-def releases. Up for consideration is a duo of mid-career Harrison Ford vehicles, Presumed Innocent (1990) and Frantic (1988), representing the "Thriller" genre (the studio has also paired Comedy and Action themed flicks, each sharing a well known lead).

The better part of a decade had passed since my last viewing of either film, and I was impressed by how well both hold up, sharing a thematic similarity with Ford's respective characters thrust into circumstances beyond their control. Presumed has prosecutor Rusty Sabich leading an investigation into the murder of a fellow attorney and in turn becoming the main suspect, while Frantic centers on Dr. Richard Walker whose wife disappears while visiting Paris forcing him to dredge through the seedy underbelly of the city in search of her. »

Top Ten Tuesday: Worst Buddy Cop Movies

23 February 2010 3:26 PM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

After a short hiatus, Top Ten Tuesdays are back… “With a Vengeance!” Sorry, we just couldn’t help ourselves. This week’s Top Ten Tuesday is in honor of Kevin Smith’s newest movie, Cop Out, a buddy cop action-comedy. Regardless of whether you’re eagerly anticipating this film, directed but not written by Kevin Smith, or eagerly trying to avoid acknowledging its existence, we’ve thrown together our own list of the Top Ten Worst Buddy Cop Movies of all-time!

10. Collision Course

If I were to tell you that in the late ’80s, someone had the bright idea of teaming Jay Leno with Pat Morita for a buddy cop comedy, you’d probably think I was nuts.  But, then, you would check IMDb, look up Collision Course, and be subject to information on one of the worst ideas in motion picture history.  Not only is this film not exciting. »

2010 Preview: The Other Guys

5 February 2010 2:07 PM, PST | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

Release Date: Aug. 6

Studio: Sony

Genre: Action Comedy

Director: Adam McKay

Writer: Chris Henchy and Adam McKay

Cast: Will Ferrell, Mark Wahlberg, The Rock, Samuel L. Jackson, Eva Mendes, Ray Stevenson, Michael Keaton, Steve Coogan, Anne Heche, Paris Hilton, Craig Robinson, Lindsay Sloane, Rob Riggle, Damon Wayans Jr.

Studio Description: Two mismatched New York City detectives seize an opportunity to step up like the city's top cops whom they idolize ‑ only things don't quite go as planned.

Analysis: Will Ferrell's last movie, the big-budget adaptation of Land of the Lost, was a box office failure, grossing a relatively meager $49.4 million and receiving a "C" grade from Box Office Mojo readers. Combined with a rocky recent track record, it appeared like Ferrell's box office draw was decreasing. This August, though, Ferrell reteams with director and frequent collaborator Adam McKay for the buddy cop comedy The Other Guys.

Avatar Flies Higher Than Angels to Top Weekend Box Office Results

24 January 2010 7:03 PM, PST | TheHDRoom | See recent TheHDRoom news »

James Cameron's Avatar stayed at the number one spot at the North American box office for the sixth weekend in a row. Three new films entered the marketplace but only the horror film Legion made any sort of measurable impact. Holdovers began to show their age as, Avatar aside, the box office began to quiet down following several weeks of very strong business.

With an estimated $36 million from 3,141 screens and a new cume of $552 million, Fox's sci-fi juggernaut sailed past The Dark Knight to become the second-highest grossing domestic film release of all-time (pre-inflation, of course). The drop from last weekend's three-day holiday take of $42.7 million is less than 20% (if estimates hold), which is just incredible in light of how much the movie has made and how many have seen it thus far. If the successive weekend drops continue to stay in the 20-30% range, Avatar could finish up »
