Almost ten years after Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull hit theaters and after years of promises and rumors and dead-ends, it’s official: Dr. Henry “Indiana” Jones, the two-fisted archaeologist with a thing for punching Nazis and recovering ancient artifacts, is returning for a fifth film due out in a little over two years.

‘Star Wars’ Actors and Filmmakers Mourn Carrie Fisher

Star Wars Actors and Directors Mourn Carrie Fisher

Carrie Fisher passed away yesterday at the age of 60. Although best known for her work as Princess Leia Organa in four Star Wars movies, she was so much more: a tremendous writer, an incredible wit, one of Hollywood’s most prolific script doctors, and a brutally honest personality whose openness about mental illness provided hope and inspiration for many.

The fact that we can build an entire article around her colleagues saying nice things about her speaks volumes.

blade runner 2049 mysteries

While the ham-fisted theatrical cut of Blade Runner felt the need to tie everything up with a neat little bow, the infinitely superior director’s cut and the even better “final cut” conclude on a more ambiguous note. Was Harrison Ford‘s Rick Deckard, a robot-hunting “blade runner” for the LAPD, a Replicant himself the whole time? Everyone has an opinion and the debate has raged on for years amongst fans and the people who actually made the film.

And with the sequel arriving next year, there are plenty of Blade Runner 2049 mysteries ahead of us, and it’s good to know that those closest to the productionseem compelled to keep one of the big unanswered questions from the original movie intact.

blade runner 2049 images

The first teaser trailer for Blade Runner 2049 arrived two days ago and it got the entire internet yammering over what it shows and it what it pointedly does not reveal. Denis Villeneuve‘s sequel to Ridley Scott’s 1982 science fiction masterpiece may have released an official synopsis, but it is holding most of its cards close to its vest. If early word is any indication, the actual plot of the film is going to lead to some heads exploding (or at least inspire some spirited conversation).

Can we glean any exciting details from a new batch of images from the film? Nah. Not really. But we can ogle how pretty this movie looks and admire Ryan Gosling‘s amazing coat.

blade runner 2049 trailer

A sequel to Blade Runner can’t help but feel like folly. How do you make a follow-up to Ridley Scott‘s 1982 classic, which redefined is genre in ways that are still being felt today, without constantly being stuck in the shadow of its predecessor? We actually have an answer to that largely rhetorical question: you drag Harrison Ford back into the mix and you hire someone like Denis Villeneuve to direct.

While those aspects make it feel okay to look forward to Blade Runner 2049 and not dread it like some kind of cyberpunk plague, it’s going to take a great trailer to get us fully on this movie’s side. So ladies and gentlemen: prepare your judgmental expressions, because the first trailer has arrived.

The Empire Strikes Back Honest Trailer

With Rogue One: A Star Wars Story hitting some theaters as early as tomorrow night and the early buzz painting quite a positive picture (along with David Chen’s video review and Peter Sciretta’s spoiler-free review), everyone is all about Star Wars this week. That includes the folks over at Honest Trailers who have decided to tackle what many Star Wars fans regard as the greatest film in the saga: The Empire Strikes Back.

Even outside of Star Wars fans, The Empire Strikes Back is largely considered to be one of the greatest sequels of all time, and as the Honest Trailer points out, it has become the lazy shorthand for anyone trying to hype up the darkness and quality of plenty of other sequels. Beyond that, the quality of this movie is so high that the voiceover guy knows it’s not going to be easy to make fun of this one.

Blade Runner 2049 music

Denis Villeneuve is knee-deep in the world of Blade Runner. The director behind Sicario and next week’s Arrival is currently shooting the sequel, Blade Runner 2049, which is about the search for Rick Reckard (Harrison Ford).

The Force Awakens audio commentary

If you’re a fan of J.J. Abrams, then maybe you’ve checked out some of the filmmaker’s audio commentaries. Abrams’ commentaries are about as breezy and as enjoyable as his films, but for whatever reason, he didn’t record one for the previous Star Wars: The Force Awakens home video release. The upcoming Collector’s Edition will, on the other hand, feature a commentary from the director.

Below, hear a SPOILER-heavy excerpt from The Force Awakens audio commentary.
