The New Teaser For Star Wars: The Force Awakens!

StarWars1(PCM) Thanks to Lucasfilm and Walt Disney Pictures, the cinematic second teaser for Star Wars: The Force Awakens is making major waves after debuting to the world yesterday, exponentially increasing the hype for the December 15 release.

John Williams’ iconic score leads us into the second teaser, clocking in at a solid two minutes long, before hitting us with a ton of new footage from the seventh installment in the $4 billion Star Wars franchise.

The teaser opens not on the barren planet of Tatooine but of Jakku, a planet with a similar desert climate, and confirms that John Boyega, who plays Finn, is indeed a stormtrooper. We also get a sneak peek at a new non-computer-animated droid, the BB8, and Han Solo and Chewbacca in the Millenium Falcon. Check out the new teaser below!

Writer-director J.J. Abrams told attendants at the Star Wars Celebration convention in Anaheim, California that he wanted to create the movie without relying completely on CGI, so if you were to watch Star Wars: The Force Awakens without the added computer generated imagery, everything would still flow and make sense.

Abrams also told Good Morning America this morning that what he would like for people to take away from The Force Awakens is that in an ordinary life, extraordinary things can happen.

Star Wars: Episode VII is directed by J.J. Abrams and produced by Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy, J.J. Abrams, and Bryan Burk. Lawrence Kasdan, the script-writer behind Star Wars V: The Empire Strikes Back, returns to the series to script The Force Awakens. Academy Award-winning composer John Williams is also reprising his role as composer for the

Taking place 30 years after Empire Strikes Back, Star Wars: The Force Awakens stars Harrison Ford, Andy Serkis, Anthony Daniels, Kenny Baker, Peter Mayhew, Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, Oscar Isaac, Max von Sydow, Adam Driver, Domhnall Gleeson, Gwendoline Christie, John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Lupita Nyong’o, Crystal Clarke, Pip Anderson, Christina Chong, and Miltos Yerolemou.

(PCM) Actor Harrison Ford suffered multiple injuries after a vintage World War II training plane that he was piloted crashed onto a golf course in Mars Vista, California.

Sources at the scene of the plane crash say that Ford was both conscious and breathing when rescue crews arrived. He was stabilized and taken to a nearby hospital where he currently remains listed in fair to moderate condition.

Sources also went to say that it appeared that Ford was bleeding as a result of several gashes on his head that occurred as a result of the crash. There has been no update about any additional injuries and at this time there has been no word on what caused the aircraft to crash in the first place. The incident occurred around 2:20pm PST and at this time it appears that Ford was flying the two-seater aircraft solo.

Authorities say they are thankful that Ford only appeared to sustain moderate injuries and that no one else on the rather crowded golf course was injured because of the incident. The crash occurred near the golf course’s eighth tee which is just west of the Santa Monica airport where Ford had just taken off.

Surely more details about the crash will emerge and the National Transportation Safety Board is sending a representative out to investigate the crash.

Harrison Ford Confirmed for “Blade Runner 2″

Balde_Runner_2(PCM) The internet and social media are abuzz today with the confirmation of news that Harrison Ford will be returning in Blade Runner 2 as Rick Deckard, the protagonist from Ridley Scott’s 1982 sci-fi classic, possibly answering the question once and for all fo whether Deckard is a replicant or not.

Reactions have been mixed with some fans eager for the sequel and excited to see Ford reprise his role while others are less enthusiastic for yet another sequel from Hollywood.

While little is known about the plot, we do know that Denis Villeneuve has replaced original director Ridley Scott, who is now serving as an Executive Producer on the untitled Blade Runner project.

Alcon Entertainment announced that Villeneuve, director of the crime/mystery dramas Prisoners, Enemy, and Polytechnique, is helming the Blade Runner sequel, set several decades after Scott’s adaptation of Philip K. Dick’s 1968 sci-fi novel, Do Androids Dream Of Electric Sheep?, in a press release.

Co-writer of the 1982 predecessor, Hampton Fancher, and Michael Green (who is also penning Ridley Scott’s upcoming Prometheus sequel), are writing the screenplay for the sequel that may or may not be based off of friend to Philip K. Dick K.W. Jeter’s authorised Blade Runner sequels.

“We are honored that Harrison is joining us on this journey with Denis Villeneuve, who is a singular talent, as we experienced personally on ‘Prisoners,'” Alcon co-founders and producers of the sequel Andrew Kosove and Broderick Johnson said in a statement. “Hampton and Michael, with Ridley Scott, have crafted a uniquely potent and faithful sequel to one of the most universally celebrated films of all time, and we couldn’t be more thrilled with this amazing, creative team.”

With his lackluster performances from the past few years, many are voicing their less-than-enthusiastic opinions about Ford’s return to Blade Runner, while others are claiming that his acting style is perfect for the dystopian, futuristic setting and atmosphere of Blade Runner.

Production is expected to begin on the Blade Runner sequel as soon as the summer of 2016. Stay tuned for more updates!

George Lucas Reveals He Once Had Plans for Star Wars VII

StarWars1(PCM) In an interview with USA Today, Star Wars creator George Lucas revealed that he had plans to originally direct and release Star Wars VII in May of 2015 before selling his company, Lucasfilm, but changed his plans when he realized the time commitment would keep him from spending time with his soon-to-be born daughter.

Lucas explains how in 2011, when he was seriously considering developing the next Star Wars, he came to the realization that another trilogy would require at least ten years. “It’s better for me to get out at the beginning of a new thing and I can just remove myself,” the filmmaker told USA Today.

With a daughter coming in two months with his newly-wed wife, Lucas decided to seize the opportunity presented to him by Disney in October of 2012 and sell Lucasfilm, explaining, “The time is more important to me than the money.”

George Lucas, who considers himself “happily retired,” wrote and served as executive producer on Lucasfilm’s animated family adventure, Strange Magic, opening in theaters January 23, 2015.

The filmmaker revealed that he only has one regret regarding Star Wars: “”The only thing I really regret about Star Wars is the fact I never got to see it — I never got to be blown out of my seat when the ship came over the screen. The next one, I’ll be able to enjoy it like anybody else.”

The latest installment in the Star Wars universe, Star Wars: The Force Awakens, is directed by J.J. Abrams and produced by Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy, J.J. Abrams, and Bryan Burk.

Lawrence Kasdan, the script-writer behind Empire Strikes Back, returns to the series to script The Force Awakens. Academy Award-winning composer Jon Williams is also returning to the series.

Taking place 30 years after Empire Strikes Back, Star Wars: The Force Awakens stars Harrison Ford, Andy Serkis, Anthony Daniels, Kenny Baker, Peter Mayhew, Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, Oscar Isaac, Max von Sydow, Adam Driver, Domhnall Gleeson, Gwendoline Christie, John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Lupita Nyong’o, Crystal Clarke, Pip Anderson, Christina Chong, and Miltos Yerolemou.

Lionsgate Releases the Trailer for the ‘The Age of Adaline’ Starring Blake Lively

TheAgeofAdaline(PCM) Lionsgate released the official trailer for the The Age of Adaline, a romance-drama starring Blake Lively as an ageless beauty, isolated by her inability to grow old.

One of the strongest bonds among all of humankind is that time affects us all. Unless struck with a tragedy, most people grow old, experiencing the milestones and changes that come with the passage of time.

For Adaline, this missed experience leaves her with an unfulfilled existence, hungry for love and a real shot at living with meaning.

Director of The Vicious Kind and Celeste & Jesse Forever Lee Toland Krieger helms the PG-13 rated romance-drama with a screenplay by J. Mills Goodloe (Pride, The Best of Me) and Salvador Paskowitz (Nic & Tristan Go Mega Dega).

Starring alongside Blake Lively in The Age of Adaline are Harrison Ford, Ellen Burstyn, Kathy Baker, Amanda Crew, and Michiel Huisman.

The Age of Adaline opens in theaters nationwide starting April 24, 2015. Visit the official Facebook page for The Age of Adaline for more info and updates and watch the official trailer after the official synopsis.

After miraculously remaining 29 years old for almost eight decades, Adaline Bowman (Blake Lively) has lived a solitary existence, never allowing herself to get close to anyone who might reveal her secret. But a chance encounter with charismatic philanthropist Ellis Jones (Michiel Huisman) reignites her passion for life and romance. When a weekend with his parents (Harrison Ford and Kathy Baker) threatens to uncover the truth, Adaline makes a decision that will change her life forever.
