Hard enough bringing a science fiction novel as beloved, respected, and influential as Ender's Game to the screen. So it has to be said that director Gavin Hood has accomplished this not-inconsiderable challenge.
As a newcomer to the series, I found myself much more interested in the film's take on leadership, the military, war, and empathy for one's enemy.
On Friday, Paranoia will run wild at your local movie theater chain. In Paranoia, Harrison Ford (Air Force One) and Gary Oldman (Air Force One) star as dueling titans of technology, with Liam Hemsworth's (
Air Force One) up-and-coming whiz kid caught in the middle. Is anyone actually paranoid in Paranoia? As a service to you, we answer every question that you could possibly have about Paranoia.
Orci reveals that while a lot of the cast emerged from just being fans of the book, choosing Harrison Ford was an exciting process.
Film: 42 (2013) Cast includes: Chadwick Boseman (The Kill Hole), Harrison Ford (Clear and Present Danger), Nicole Beharie (American Violet), Christoph...
I spoke with Chadwick Boseman a few weeks before the film's opening and discussed carrying the legacy of such a beloved sportsman, seeking the approval of both his family and living widow Rachel, and all he learned working opposite leading man Harrison Ford.
Despite its flaws, 42 is a great illustration of a moment where America was given the choice between the right and wrong side of history, and by and large, we chose correctly.

In telling Robinson's story, Helgeland doesn't dwell on the endless barrage of racist bile that Robinson (and his wife) endured, but he doesn't shy from it either. As a result, Robinson's achievement takes on more meaning and more power.
Q: How long does it take to get used to the unfortunate eyebrows Harrison Ford uses to portray Branch Rickey? A: I will never get used to them. Never ever.
nd though you think you may know his story, you couldn't possibly fathom the horrors Jackie Robinson endured to pave the way for black athletes.

On Wednesday, the internet exploded with the news that Disney is reportedly in preliminary discussions to make standalone Star Wars movies focusing on, respectively, Boba Fett and a Han Solo. Since the Han Solo movie is believed to take place before the events of Episode IV, the part will have to be recast with a new actor. Names as wide ranging as Joseph Gordon-Levitt to Garrett Hedlund to Taylor Kitsch have been suggested. At this point, it might be easier to just list the 10 people or things that should not play the young Han Solo. Here is that list:
Now that his first comeback movie has seriously bombed, what's next for Arnold Schwarzenegger?
It's by far the biggest, best and most surprising entertainment news of 2012, yet still no one knows quite what to make of it: starting in 2015 we're getting a new Star Wars trilogy, beginning with Episode VII, supervised by George Lucas and produced by Disney.
The Indiana Jones quartet on BluRay for the first time. Raiders looks better than it has, but is it possible this film needs a full restoration? I couldn't help thinking it should look even better throughout.
