Force Awakens Easter Egg Proves Luke’s Final Words to Kylo

Kylo Ren’s (Adam Driver) facial lesion apparently has a subtle reference to Han Solo (Harrison Ford) as its placed directly on top of his father’s last touch before he ignited his lightsaber and killed him. Star Wars: The Last Jedi continued the personal arc that Star Wars: The Force Awakens started for our new heroes such as Rey (Daisy Ridley), Poe (Oscar Isaac) and Finn (John Boyega), as well as Ben Solo, who has now emerged as the trilogy’s main big bad.

More "Indiana Jones"

According to Disney's Lucasfilm, the next "Indiana Jones" movie, to be directed by Steven Spielberg, from a screenplay by David Koepp, starring Harrison Ford, will be released July 10, 2020, starring Harrison Ford. "There is only going to be one actor playing 'Indiana Jones' and that’s Harrison Ford," said Spielberg. "The one thing I will tell you is I’m not killing off Harrison at the end...":

Asked if he sees his studio creating many more 'Indiana Jones' features, Disney CEO Bob Iger, said "Yes, I do. I don’t think it reaches the scale of the universe of 'Star Wars', but I see making more. It won't be just a one-off..."

"I didn't want to do it without Steven," said Ford about reprising his role in the new film as 'Indiana Jones'.

"And I didn't want to do it without a really good script. And happily we're working on both.

Indiana Jones 5 and West Side Story Are Next for Spielberg

Indiana Jones 5 and West Side Story Are Next for Spielberg
Indiana Jones 5 is likely next for director Steven Spielberg. The legendary director is 71-years-old and isn't showing any signs of slowing down. This year, he put his Oscar contender The Post together very quickly and he's also got Ready Player One, which represents a return to blockbuster filmmaking for Spielberg, hitting theaters in March. Now, as those projects wind down, he's lining up his next job and, reportedly, there's a very good chance it will be Indiana Jones 5 which, surprisingly, could be followed up be a remake of West Side Story.

Starting with Indiana Jones 5, it was announced some time ago that Steven Spielberg was going to return to the director's chair for the new installment, with Harrison Ford returning to star once more as the iconic action hero. Disney has already dated the movie for July 20, 2020, which was pushed back from its original July 19, 2019, date. That being the case,

Steven Spielberg Might Be Directing Another Indiana Jones Film And A West Side Story Reboot Next

Steven Spielberg just finished directing The Post and Ready Player One, but if you thought that meant he was taking a break, you were dead wrong. Deadline reports the director is already eyeballing his next two features and that a new Indiana Jones film and a reboot of West Side Story are both distinct possibilities. There are other options on the table, of course, but obviously, these are the most exciting. 

Well one of them anyway. Right now current sources seem to indicate the Indiana Jones film is holding the top spot, and that whatever second film he chooses would either precede or follow that. Spielberg's camp, of course, denies any of this, but it wouldn't be Hollywood without loose lips to get the fans excited. 

If Spielberg is getting back into the Indiana Jones game, Disney is undoubtedly high fiving each other as we speak for that Lucasfilm acquisition.

It’s Looking Like Indiana Jones 5 Might Be Steven Spielberg’s Next Project

With The Post receiving critical acclaim and awards buzz and Ready Player One heading into the final stages of post-production, Steven Spielberg is apparently choosing between two very different movies for his next project. Deadline is reporting, courtesy of sources close to the director, that he’s stuck between Indiana Jones 5 and a modern remake of West Side Story.

Now, I like West Side Story as much as the next person, and a Spielberg-directed contemporary musical about urban gang warfare sounds like a weird and interesting movie, but if it’s a choice between that and more Indy, then I think it’s a no-brainer. At least, as far as I see it.

The only spanner in the works could be the reception of 2008’s Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, which is widely considered a leaden movie over-stuffed with unnecessary CGI and the slightly unwelcome notion

The Real Reason Sean Connery Said No to Indiana Jones 4

The Real Reason Sean Connery Said No to Indiana Jones 4
Many fans were disappointed when it became obvious that Harrison Ford and Sean Connery wouldn't be reuniting for Indiana Jones 4. Then Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull hit theaters, and fans were just disappointed. Some went as far as to call it Steven Spielberg's Phantom Menace. It appeared that Sean Connery had dodged a bullet. But it wasn't for a lack of Spielberg's aim. The iconic director actually wanted the former James Bond actor back in the movie. But Sean Connery couldn't do it. Or rather, he wouldn't. Why? Because the role was just too small.

That's right, despite Sean Connery playing Henry Jones, father to Indiana, in 1989's (seemingly) trilogy ending sequel The Last Crusade, he was being relegated to a cameo appearance in the next one, and that didn't sit right with Sean. If he was coming back, it would have to be for a co-starring role again.

First Reaction To Solo: A Star Wars Story Promises Lots Of Fan Service

At last, the wheels seem to be moving on the promotional campaign for Solo: A Star Wars Story. Yesterday brought us our first details on the plot in the form of a short synopsis and now, a possible first reaction to a screening of the movie has appeared online and thankfully, it’s very positive.

Apparently, a certain amount of footage from the pic was shown off at an event in Munich, Germany, leading Facebook user Holger Frick to praise what he had seen of the upcoming Star Wars prequel film. The fan had good things to say about the cast as a whole and went as far as to promise that it might capture the classic feel of the franchise that many thought was missing from The Last Jedi.

Review: Blade Runner 2049

  • Comicmix
Sequels are always an iffy proposition. There was a time that a hot film spawned an almost mirror-image sequel as a fast cash grab. After it was clear that was not what audiences wanted, sequels grew smarter and more sophisticated. In many cases, though, the first question asked is, “Does this really merit a sequel?” Sometimes, the creators have more they want to say or, after time has passed, feel there is something new to explore.

Ridley Scott’s Blade Runner took Philip K. Dick’s prose work and envisioned a near future that was a darker reflection of 1982. We had gobs of atmosphere, some very restrained and impactful performances, and were left to wonder. While talk of a sequel has bopped up every few years, everyone held out until now. Director Denis Villeneuve’s sequel, Blade Runner 2049, recruited many of the original cast and crew to take use

Blade Runner 2049

After 35 years Philip K. Dick’s brainstorm returns in a film sequel worthy of the original; Denis Villeneuve does right by the concept, but the show will be tough sledding for Add-plagued modern viewers. Ryan Gosling follows in Harrison Ford’s replicant footsteps, surrounded by an impressive group of supporting actors. It’s long, it’s moody, it’s not for babies — but it is rewarding.

Solo: A Star Wars Story Synopsis Teases A Dark And Dangerous Adventure

Now that Star Wars: The Last Jedi is moving into the rearview mirror, Disney and Lucasfilm are at last pushing the promotional campaign for Solo: A Star Wars Story into gear. The upcoming prequel starring Alden Ehrenreich as Han Solo has been kept tightly under wraps so far, with only the odd set photo posted on director Ron Howard’s social media giving us any clue as to the nature of the movie.

But that’s about to change, as the first official synopsis for Solo has now dropped. The short outline keeps things pretty vague, of course, but teases the scruffy-looking nerf herder encountering some other iconic characters from the Star Wars franchise.
