Harrison Ford Is Officially A Go For Blade Runner 2, This Oscar Nominee May Direct

Blade RunnerThere have been rumblings of Blade Runner 2 for years, but it hasn’t been until recently that things really got rolling on the long gestating sequel. That’s not to say it’s been a smooth ride. Ridley Scott, busy with The Martian and Prometheus 2, among other projects, said he wasn’t going to direct. And though star Harrison Ford has appeared enthusiastic, there’s always been the caveat of the script has to be write and it has to fit into his schedule. Now, however, the production has not only secured its star, but has also scored a potential coup, landing Academy Award nominated director Denis Villeneuve.

This isn’t even just some rumor that someone heard from one of their unnamed sources who overheard this tidbit at lunch. The news comes in the form of a press release, and while Ford is firmly in place, Villeneuve is not 100% on board yet, though he is apparently deep in negotiations and more or less concrete. They’re at least sure enough that he’ll sign on that they put out a press release.

Watch This Star Wars Rebels Season Finale Trailer Rush To The Rescue

The Star Wars universe is expanding in ways fans have never experienced before, and the animated Star Wars Rebels has been the first post-Disney buyout addition to the canon (there was that novel, but that doesn’t have nearly the reach of a movie or a show like this). The first season has been a lot of fun, even if it’s aimed at younger audiences. It wraps up this coming Monday, and if you needed a reason to tune in, this new trailer might provide just the push you’re looking for.

While this short video is full of all the high adventure, swashbuckling action, and epic exploits that you’re looking for, it also has a grim edge to it. As you can see, Kanan (voiced by Freddie Prinze Jr.), the leader of the titular band of rebels, is in the clutches of the Empire and being tortured by the Inquisitor (Jason Isaacs). Torture, anguish, and the threat of imminent death aren’t exactly the makings of a happy-go-lucky fun time, and the crew of the Ghost must attempt to rescue him from the evil bastards.

Joss Whedon Calls The Climax Of Avengers: Age Of Ultron “Unhinged”

AvengersWe’ve seen footage of a crazy ass battle from Avengers: Age of Ultron, where Iron Man and his Hulkbuster armor butt heads with the Hulk. That looks awesome, but we’ve also heard that’s not from even anywhere near the climax. And if you thought Earth’s Mightiest Heroes facing off against Loki’s Chitauri army at the end of the first film was nuts, according to Joss Whedon, we haven’t seen anything yet.

Avengers 2 looks to be bigger in every way than the first. The director says that wasn’t the intent, but it apparently didn’t stop him from going all out with Age of Ultron. Talking to Yahoo, he says, “I didn’t mean for it to get larger, but the climax that I pitched was completely unhinged and nobody said no, so that’s that.”

Star Wars 7: Here’s Why J.J. Abrams Says We Haven’t Seen More Footage

star wars the force awakensThat Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer pretty damn awesome. Even months later I still watch it at least once every other day or so. But while it introduces us to most of the key new additions to that far, far away galaxy, it’s noticeably light on familiar faces. That, of course, was a very conscious choice, and J.J. Abrams admits that there has been a great deal of back and forth as he and Lucasfilm try to decide what to show, what to leave out, and how to best market their film.

Chris Pratt Plays With His Raptor Team In These Jurassic World Photos

Jurassic WorldParks and Recreation may be over and done, but don’t worry, we’re still going to see Chris Pratt everywhere. We’re going to get Guardians of the Galaxy sequels for years, if he plays Indiana Jones that could go on for quite a while, and he’s seemingly up for damn near every male lead in Hollywood these days. But next we’re going to see him fight dinosaurs in Jurassic World, and today brings some new stills from that film.
