After returning to his iconic character Han Solo in last month's blockbuster Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Harrison Ford has found his follow-up. The Hollywood Reporter reveals that the icon has joined Natalie Dormer in the upcoming political thriller Official Secrets. They join a cast that also includes Anthony Hopkins, Paul Bettany and Martin Freeman.
The plot is adapted from the book The Spy Who Tried to Stop a War: Katharine Gun and the Secret Plot to Sanction the Iraq Invasion by Marcia Mitchell and Thomas Mitchell. Natalie Dormer is portraying Katharine Gun, a young British spy who was arrested for leaking information to the press. The information claimed the U.S. engaged in illegal activities to pressure the United Nations Security Council into passing their resolution to go to war with Iraq.Read More
Acclaimed actor Harrison Ford, who portrays Han Solo in the Star Wars film franchise, gives viewers an exclusive preview of Star Wars-themed lands being developed at Disneyland and Walt Disney World Resorts. New details of the ambitious plans to bring Star Wars to life at both resorts will be revealed during The Wonderful World of Disney: Disneyland 60, with Master of Ceremonies Derek Hough, airing Sunday, February 21 (8:00-10:00 p.m. EST), on the ABC Television Network. The Los Angeles Philharmonic, conducted by music and artistic director Gustavo Dudamel, will join the celebration performing "The Sorcerer's Apprentice" from Walt Disney's acclaimed animated film Fantasia.
Previously announced Wonderful World of Disney: Disneyland 60 participants include Elton John, Josh Gad and Witney Carson. Walt Disney's legacy lives on through the Disneyland Resort, but even he might not have been able to imagine how big his idea would become at Disneyland and at Disney parks that span the globe. He launched an entirely new concept for family entertainment that remains as relevant today as the day it opened on July 17, 1955 for guests of all ages.Read More
(Warning: SPOILERS!) Star Wars: The Force Awakens is still going crazy at the box office. It has pulled in a record breaking $529 million around the world, and just broke the Monday box office record held by Spider-Man 2 since 2004. In turn, the new cast will probably see hefty pay raises in whatever they are offered next. But with all that dough rolling in, you have to wonder how much the cast was actually paid for this particular installment. Variety reports that none of the actors made as much as returning favorite Harrison Ford. And as fans, we're okay with that for a lot of reasons.
Sources close to Disney and LucasFilm claim that Harrison Ford was the big winner when it came to his personal banking account. He clocked in a paycheck that was 50x higher than the kids surrounding him, all of which had more screen time in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. The iconic actor is said to have walked away with a number somewhere in the eight-figure range, higher than $10 million but somewhere below $20 million. One source even claimed that Ford walked away with a cool $25 million to play Han Solo one last time.Read More
Two weeks from today, many fans will be sitting in their local theater, watching Star Wars: The Force Awakens on opening night. Even with a slew of new details that have surfaced in the coming weeks, the film's biggest secrets still remain intact, amid countless unconfirmed rumors that have surfaced over the past three years. Earlier today, several of the cast members took part in a global Twitter Q&A session, where Harrison Ford seemed to reveal a massive SPOILER. You might want to stop reading now if you don't want to be spoiled, so consider yourself warned.
The original rumor, which surfaced in February, claimed that this scene takes place on the ramparts of "The Evil Castle," where Han Solo is hiding from Kylo Ren (Adam Driver). Han decides to reveal himself to this villain, which stops Finn (John Boyega), Rey (Daisy Ridley), Chewbacca (Anthony Daniels) and BB-8 in their tracks. Kylo Ren then kills Han Solo, causing Chewie to let out a series of roars while firing his blaster, as Kylo Ren makes his escape.Read More
It's not exactly our first look at Mark Hamill in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, but it's pretty cool. The man behind Master Jedi Luke Skywalker climbed into the new First Order Stormtrooper armor to take fans by surprise on Hollywood Blvd. It was all done as part of the Omaze Star Wars: The Force Awakens initiative, and it's a lot of fun! And we may even be getting a sneak peek at Luke's new Star Wars: Episode VIII beard and haircut.
Two weeks ago, we got a very cool video that showed the man behind the legendary space pirate known as Han Solo, Harrison Ford, participating in a video where he surprised fans. These trilogy originals are doing it all in the name of charity. Omaze has launched another campaign, and this time, the stakes for participants is pretty high. Those who donate to the cause will be entered to win a chance to meet the cast at the premiere for Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
