Though he has a vast filmography, Harrison Ford is largely defined by three characters he portrayed in the early 1980s: Han Solo, Indiana Jones and Rick Deckard. This trio of heroic figures share some DNA aside from the man who plays them, but what those roles have in common now is that Ford is has been revisiting them. In 2008, after a nearly two-decade hiatus, the actor donned the fedora and held the whip again in Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. Two years ago, he stepped back...
The Terminator series is making its third attempt at a trilogy. But would it be better as a one-off story, Ryan wonders...

Genisys probably seemed like a good idea at the time. After the so-so critical and financial performance of Terminator 3 and Terminator: Salvation, the fifth entry in the series would, as far as its producers were concerned, take the saga back to its glory days: the nightmarish chases of The Terminator and the eye-popping special effects of T2, widely regarded as the franchise's high-water mark.
It makes sense that we'd see her in some capacity. She first debuted in Raiders of the Lost Ark way back in 1981. And no other female character in the franchise has ever been able to carry the same kind of torch. Ravenwood did turn back up in the last installment, Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. She didn't just put in a cameo,

Stop me if you’ve heard this one before, but Paramount are developing a prequel movie to Dracula. This time the film is being worked on by It director Andy Muschietti. Variety – who broke the story – describes the story as: “set in 1868, where a 21-year-old Bram Stoker meets with an evil that he traps in an ancient tower.” Read more here.

Shia Labeouf Indiana Jones 5 News: Mutt Williams Will Not Return
“Harrison plays Indiana Jones, that I can certainly say… and the Shia Labeouf character is not in the film,” Koepp said. But what’s the status of the film? “We’re plugging away at it. In terms of when we would start, I think that’s up to Mr. Spielberg and Mr. Ford… I know we’ve got a script we’re mostly happy with.
Koepp won't reveal whether or not Indiana Jones will get a true protege, as Disney plans to reboot the franchise. It's believed that Disney and Lucasfilm are looking to reignite this title as a viable new series, though after Indiana Jones 5, neither Harrison Ford nor director Steven Spielberg will be back. So how it continues is anyone's guess at this point. Just know it won't be the continuing adventures of Mutt. Says Koepp.

According to Susan Lacy, director of the upcoming documentary Spielberg, the legendary filmmaker has revealed that out of all four instalments in the series, he likes the 1984 prequel Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom the least. Spielberg apparently also acknowledges some mistakes he made with the World War II comedy 1941, which is widely regarded as one of the lowest (if not the lowest) points of a rather stellar career.
You’ll be able to see Steven Spielberg discussing his career in the documentary when it premiers on HBO on October 7th, while Spielberg is also set to reunite with Harrison Ford for a fifth Indiana Jones movie,

The Bechdel test — coined by graphic novelist Alison Bechdel, it calls for a movie to have at least two named woman characters, who speak to each other about something other than a man — has its flaws, but it’s a simple, quantifiable way to measure whether a movie’s portrayal of women is credible. It’s not an issue that would have come up for Spielberg when he launched his career nearly 50 years ago, but times have changed.

Okay, make it stop. This amusement-park ride has gone on long enough. It is no longer any fun. I’m feeling a bit nauseated, in fact.
I adored the original Pirates of the Caribbean trilogy: they were smart, fun popcorn flicks that worked as clever updates on the classic Hollywood swashbuckler, all adventure and movie-movie romance and total, wonderful nonsense. With the third installment, 2007’s At World’s End, the series even managed to whip up some satirical zing, in its plot about gig-economy independent-contractor pirates versus
Is the reason almost every Alien movie since the original has been, at best, a mixed bag because the premise has been exhausted?
I thought about this the other day as I watched a slew of Alien: Covenant reviews pour in. Like Prometheus, it seems to be getting the kind of safe critical treatment a veteran filmmaker like Sir Ridley Scott has supposedly earned. Currently Alien: Covenant is at 76% on Rotten Tomatoes. (Prometheus ended up at 72%). Those 75% ranges on Rotten Tomatoes are quite telling, especially when it comes to established, well-renowned talent. Last year Steven Spielberg’s gigantic boring Thud The Bfg ended up at 75%. Most of Spielberg’s sub-par output end up in the mid 70’s: War Horse 75%, War of the Worlds = 75%, Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull = 77%, The Adventures of Tintin = 75%. The mid-seventies for a veteran
Originally set to be released on July 10th, 2020, it’s now arriving on August 7th, 2020 instead. That’s because the fifth instalment of the Indiana Jones franchise has taken that July slot. Why? Well, an official reason hasn’t been revealed, but chances are that Disney wants to give the movie more time to play to summer audiences in order to ensure that it does strong box office business. After all, it’s clear that Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull has reduced interest in the series while Marvel films, on the other hand, are a hit
