Alcon/WB Want Christopher Nolan For Their Blade Runner Spin Offs

Posted on 04 March 2011 by Christian

We have an update on yesterday’s news that Alcon Entertainment (a WB subsidiary) has bought the rights to Blade Runner. Apparently Chris Nolan is in the studio’s sights to direct when ans IF any movies even happen..

I have to say, I got a bit of a scare when I thought that a Blade Runner reboot was going to be forced upon us. But it turns out thing aren’t quite so bad, and potentially good! Original producer and rights holder Bud Yorkin wouldn’t sell the rights for a remake of Ridley Scott’s classic, only the rights to make spin offs. So that means sequels and or prequels.

In an interview with io9, the gents that purchased the rights Broderick Johnson and Andrew Kosove name check Christopher Nolan as the man they would like to see bring their new vision of Philip K Dick’s story to life..

Posted on 07 February 2011 by Christian

Check out the Super Bowl commercial for Jon Favreau-directed big screen adaptation of Cowboys & Aliens starring Daniel Craig, Olivia Wilde, Harrison Ford and Sam Rockwell!

1873. Arizona Territory. A stranger (Craig) with no memory of his past stumbles into the hard desert town of Absolution. The only hint to his history is a mysterious shackle that encircles one wrist. What he discovers is that the people of Absolution don’t welcome strangers, and nobody makes a move on its streets unless ordered to do so by the iron-fisted Colonel Dolarhyde (Ford). It’s a town that lives in fear. But Absolution is about to experience fear it can scarcely comprehend as the desolate city is attacked by marauders from the sky. Screaming down with breathtaking velocity and blinding lights to abduct the helpless one by one, these monsters challenge everything the residents have ever known. Now, the stranger they rejected is their only hope for salvation. As this gunslinger slowly starts to remember who he is and where he

Will Indiana Jones Be Killed Off In The Next Movie?

Posted on 20 December 2010 by Christian

He just might be if Harrison Ford has his way. The actor apparently wants the next Indy adventure to be his last, and for the iconic character to meet his maker while handing the reigns of the franchise to his son in future instalments..

According to ShowbizSpy Harrison Ford wants the next(5th) Indiana Jones movie to be his last. That’s not exactly surprising of course, given that nobody really believed the 68 year old star would be back for more after Kingdom Of The Crystal Skull, but apparently he doesn’t want Indy to simply ride off into the sunset never to be seen again, he wants him cold asd stiff!..

Cowboys And Aliens Scene Descriptions And Plot Details Revealed!

Posted on 14 December 2010 by Christian

40 minutes of footage was shown to HitFix, and here is what they had to say about the movie, it’s characters, the opening scene and a few previously unrevealed plot details…

At the annual “Butt-Numb-A-Thon” event hosted by Aint It Cool News, the first 40 minutes of Iron Man 2 director Jon Favreau’s next comic book movie was shown, and here’s what they had to say about the footage they were lucky enough to see. As you’ll see, the reaction was extremely positive, and while the details below arent too spoiler-ific, they are pretty intriguing!

Jon Favreau, Bob Orci, and Ron Howard came rolling in, and they brought a full 40 minutes of footage with them for next summer’s “Cowboys and Aliens.” I’d actually seen this at a recent visit to the editing room, just before the release of the trailer for the movie, and I’m impressed with it.

Starting with Daniel Craig waking up alone in the desert, confused, his wrist wrapped in some sort of mechanical device, no memory of who he is or how he got there, the film moves quickly. Even before the main title comes up, we get a look at Craig in action, taking out a group of armed men, even tackling one of them off a horse.

Clancy Brown, Keith Carradine, Sam Rockwell, and Adam Beach all show up in interesting roles as townspeople who have to struggle with the iron fist of Col. Dollarhyde, played with appropriate grizzle by Harrison Ford, and his idiot son Percy, played by Paul Dano. One of the best things about the footage is the near-constant abuse that Dano takes, and I hope it’s a running thread in the film.

Craig and Ford both come across as big giant alpha males, and the idea of the two of them having to work together to sort out the mystery of what happened to Craig and what happened to the townspeople that are abducted in the action set piece that wrapped up the sequence we saw. I like the slow burn in the 40 minutes we saw, the emphasis on character, the Western tropes played just right.

Olivia Wilde plays a local woman who seems to know something about Craig and his troubles, and we saw some footage that hinted at a larger mystery involving her. Favreau seems cautiously optimistic about the film so far, excited by what he’s doing, and Ron Howard couldn’t have been more effusive in his praise right before it played. They were smart to show an uninterrupted chunk of the movie like this, because it demonstrates exactly what the tone is, and how the genre mash-up will work when it’s finished.

Cowboys and Aliens is set to be released on July 29, 2011!
