The biggest appeal of the 'Expendables' franchise has always been seeing all your favorite aging action stars on the screen at same time, even when they have no reason to be in the same movie. However, nothing has come close to the pure, unfiltered weirdness of seeing Arnold Schwarzenegger on the same set as Harrison Ford. The former Terminator/Governor shared an image of them on the set of 'The Expendables 3' and it's just plain strange. While they've always existed on the same world, they feel like two people from different dimensions.
While explaining his business model to the soon-to-be corporate spy Adam Cassidy (Liam Hemsworth), tech magnate Nicolas Wyatt (Gary Oldman) relays a timeless adage: "Good artists copy. Great artists steal." That puts 'Paranoia' director Robert Luketic somewhere between the two superlatives, constructing his smart phone-enabled thriller out of every existing blueprint in history while winding up with an entertaining, functional finished product. The twists are inevitable, the turns come from a mile away, but a surprisingly charming and humble Hemsworth (no brooding 'Hunger Games' machismo here) becomes a reliable interface for the old mechanics. It makes sense to pair him with the aging Harrison Ford — if Hemsworth was around in the '70s, the two would be competing for all the same roles.
Though 'Star Wars: Episode 7' hasn't started casting yet, nor has Disney released much information about the upcoming sequel, that's not going to stop intrepid journalists from asking about it. Conan O'Brien interviewed Harrison Ford for his upcoming movie 'Paranoia,' and -- to get Ford to talk about it -- offered Ford a thousand dollars to tell him spoilers from 'Episode 7.'
Even at 71, Harrison Ford is still game to play action heroes -- earlier today we learned that Ford is game for another 'Indiana Jones' film, and while that might not happen, there's another action franchise that's willing to take him in. It seems Ford has joined the cast of 'The Expendables 3,' if Sylvester Stallone is to be believed.
The final 'Ender's Game' trailer has been released online after a bit of viral marketing, which encouraged fans to unlock the latest footage for the upcoming sci-fi fantasy film. We're still a few months away from the film's November release date, which means we'll be seeing this final trailer pretty often as the film gears up for its debut.
The last time we saw Indiana Jones, he was encountering aliens and disappointing millions of movie fans all over the world with 'Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.' Although we're just now washing the taste of that disastrous production out of our mouths, talk of an 'Indiana Jones 5' has long persisted, and now there may be enough distance for us to actually be a little interested. What does series star Harrison Ford have to say on the matter?
If you're looking forward to the long-in-the-works adaptation of 'Ender's Game,' today must certainly be a very exciting day for you. First, we got that cool promotional video that featured the one and only Harrison Ford requesting your help in taking down alien invaders. Then, we had our comprehensive report from the film's Comic-Con 2013 panel. Now, a new clip from the upcoming sci-fi movie had made its way online, giving us our best look yet at the film.
Thursday, Jul. 18 on Comic-Con 2013's bustling Hall H stage was home to two highlights from the young-adult movie genre's upcoming slate. Summit Entertainment, the studio behind 'The Twilight Saga,' kicked things off with panel presentations for 'Ender's Game' and 'Divergent,' both bringing with them a slew of guests and tons of updates, including the first footage from 'Divergent.'
Despite all of the controversy surrounding author Orson Scott Card's political beliefs, the upcoming adaptation of his celebrated novel 'Ender's Game' continues to truck onward. First and foremost, the film is making a major appearance at Comic-Con 2013, where it will probably preach to the choir of already-sold geeks. Can it appeal to normal people? Will a new series of character posters featuring actors like Harrison Ford convince people that this is a movie for them?
