5 March 2015 4:43 PM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Harrison Ford injured in plane accident (image: Harrison Ford as Colonel Graff in 'Ender's Game') Star Wars and Raiders of the Lost Ark actor Harrison Ford was supposed to be in critical condition – later reports have upgraded that to "fair" or "stable" condition – following an accident with a small airplane on Los Angeles' Westside. Earlier this afternoon (March 5, 2015), a vintage, one-engine two-seater crash landed at the Penmar Golf Course, located in the Los Angeles suburb of Venice, not far from the Pacific Ocean and just west of Santa Monica Airport. Its pilot, 72-year-old Harrison Ford, was found "seriously" injured. He was alone on the plane. There were no injuries on the ground. As explained in the Los Angeles Times, "fire officials would not identify the victim of the crash but said he was conscious and breathing when paramedics arrived." Ford was later transported to an unidentified hospital. Eleven »

Shia Labeouf -- Transforms Into Optimus Grime

27 February 2015 3:45 PM, PST | TMZ | See recent TMZ news »

Shia Labeouf is now the proud owner of a pony, and some hardware ... in his face. Shia debuted his Riff Raff-esque look -- ponytail past his shoulders and eyebrow piercing -- while walking around the San Fernando Valley Friday with his girlfriend Mia Goth.   It's unclear if the hardcore look is for a new movie role, or if Shia's just trying out something different.  "Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull" might »

Harrison Ford Returning For 'Blade Runner' Sequel

26 February 2015 10:57 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Harrison Ford is getting a late-in-life career boost by recreating all the projects that made him famous in the first place.

First he came back for Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, then he reprised his iconic role as Han Solo for Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens. Now, it looks like he’ll be donning his rain soaked trench coat once more for the upcoming Blade Runner sequel.

News: Harrison Ford's 7 Greatest Roles

The original film, directed by Ridley Scott, was set in a futuristic Los Angeles and focused on android-hunting police officer Rick Deckard (Ford), who struggles with the questions of morality and what it really means to be human.

Released in 1982, the film faced initially poor reviews and a tepid box office performance. After the release of Scott’s Director’s Cut in 1992 the film began to get the recognition it deserved as a critical piece of sci-fi »

Chris Pratt Not Overwhelmed by Idea of 'Indiana Jones'

23 February 2015 7:01 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

As the weekend was just getting started, it was reported that Steven Spielberg hopes to direct Chris Pratt in a new Indiana Jones movie. The Guardians of the Galaxy star is rumored to be Disney's top choice to replace original star Harrison Ford. Which sounds like a heavy burden to take on. But Chris Pratt doesn't see it that way. He is in no way 'overwhelmed' by the aspect of carrying on the iconic character for a new generation.

Speaking with MTV at on last night's Oscars red carpet, Chris Pratt refused to admit that he was even being considered. But he does think it would be very cool if it did happen. The actor says:

"It's all nothing until it's something and so far it's not something....I don't think it's overwhelming to contemplate....It'd be cool. No one's called me. (There's) A lot of talk about it. The »

Steven Spielberg to helm Indiana Jones reboot, starring Chris Pratt?

20 February 2015 11:28 PM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Steven Spielberg is reportedly working on the reboot of the Indiana Jones franchise.

The legendary director hopes to direct the film with Chris Pratt starring in the titular role, reports Deadline.

Disney is said to be developing the reboot, which is in its very early stages and has no script yet.

The first film of the franchise, Raiders of the Lost Ark, debuted in 1981 and follows the adventures of archeologist Indiana Jones, played by Harrison Ford.

Spielberg directed the first four Indiana Jones films while George Lucas, who conceived the character, produced them.

2008's Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull was the last instalment of the franchise and saw Ford reprise his role as Jones and star alongside Shia Labeouf and Cate Blanchett.

Earlier this month, Pratt denied rumours that he is starring in the Indiana Jones reboot but stated it would be an "awesome opportunity" to play the iconic role. »

Spielberg Wants to Direct Chris Pratt in 'Indiana Jones' Reboot

20 February 2015 4:25 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Near the tail end of last month, it was reported that Disney was looking to cast Guardians of the Galaxy star Chris Pratt in the new Indiana Jones. While he would be replacing original star Harrison Ford, it looks like another key element will be kept in place. It is being reported this evening that Steven Spielberg wants to direct the reboot of the franchise.

Steven Spielberg is actually championing Chris Pratt for the lead. Deadline claims that if the script is good enough, and it's a story that Steven Spielberg wants to tell, he will come back for this fifth installment. The director has helmed all four previous entries in the Indiana Jones franchise, starting with Raiders of the Lost Ark in 1981, and continuing with Indiana Jones & the Temple of Doom in 1984, Indiana Jones & the Last Crusade in 1989 and Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull in 2008.

The TV Episodes That Made Us Stop Watching

20 February 2015 6:05 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

As with people, it is possible to fall out of love with a television show. Sometimes it creeps up on you, until one day you realize you’re not watching the same show anymore. Other times, it’s sudden and unexpected: The show has done something unforgivable. Whatever the case, where the time and emotional investment were once worth it, they now bring no returns. Below, we recall the episodes when we knew there would be no more second chances.Homeland, "The Choice" (Season 2 Finale)First, cultural critics spoke of "jumping the shark." Then, in a post-Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull world, we spoke of "nuking the fridge." I propose that we add another phrase that describes a particular kind of rubicon-crossing: "blowing up the Secretary of Defense," a process by which a series gives up on being cerebral and opts to go all dumb and explosion-y. »

Acad’s Sci-Tech Oscars Raise the Bar On ‘Wow’

12 February 2015 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

From finding new ways to shoot the most adrenaline-infused car chases to taking exhibition audio into new frontiers, this year’s recipients of the Academy Scientific & Technical Awards are pushing the limits of cinema in every way they can.

These awards are sometimes called the Sci-Tech Oscars, but most honorees are given plaques or certificates, as opposed to the fabled statuettes. Only two of the awards come with actual Oscars and those nods aren’t given every year, though this year both will be presented.

The highest Sci-Tech Award — and one that comes with an Oscar — is the Academy Award of Merit. The award is designed to single out game-changing technology. This year Larry Hornbeck will receive the citation for his digital micromirror technology that powers Dlp cinema projectors, now the standard throughout the industry. These micromirrors, 37 years in development, are used for “intelligently steering light” in order to help deliver bright, »

'Mortdecai' Director & 'Spider-Man' Screenwriter David Koepp Thinks There Needs To Be More Spidey Movies

2 February 2015 2:32 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

At one time, David Koepp was the noted screenwriter behind the first entry in Sam Raimi's "Spider-Man" trilogy, Steven Spielberg's "War Of The Worlds," and he got a credit on David Fincher's "Panic Room." But he also has his fingerprints on "Indiana Jones And The Kingdom Of The Crystal Skull," "Premium Rush," and, more recently, the big box office flop, "Mortdecai." Still, his dalliance in the world of Marvel does mean he has some insight into how he'd approach the character, particularly now that the series seems to be in trouble at Sony. Speaking recently with Empire, Koepp shared some of those ideas. Now, it should be said, he readily admits he's speaking as if money isn't an object, but his plan to fix Spider-Man? More movies. His concept basically is that there would be a few different iterations of the character all at once, each focusing »

Watch: 'Jurassic World' Takes A Super Bowl Sized Bite In Game Day Trailer

1 February 2015 3:29 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Not many franchises can claim creative success when it comes to their fourth films. Need some examples? "Indiana Jones And The Kingdom Of The Crystal Skull," "Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace,"  "Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home"...you get the idea. But can "Jurassic World" revitalize and reboot the series for a while new generation? Can Chris Pratt continue to live up to the Movie Star Everyman mantle being placed on his shoulders? Well, we'll soon find out. Universal has kicked off a game day trailer for the brand new film. This time around, the park is open and visitors are taking in the sights, but once again, scientists play God, create a new dinosaur hybrid, and all hell breaks loose. When will they ever learn?

For & Against: Are you onboard for the all-female Ghostbusters?

28 January 2015 7:51 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

After months of speculation, Paul Feig's all-female Ghostbusters has unveiled its cast with Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Leslie Jones and Kate McKinnon tasked with ridding New York of spooks.

But this movie has been a divisive one from the moment it was announced last summer. The idea of a film without the original quartet irked many, especially with Dan Aykroyd and Ernie Hudson eager to reprise their roles. Digital Spy movies editor Simon Reynolds and TV editor Morgan Jeffery weigh up the two sides of the debate below.

Maybe it's because I've never held Ghostbusters in quite as high regard as other '80s classics (I'm more of Back to the Future geek myself), but the idea of rebooting Ghostbusters has quickly won me over.
