‘Star Wars 7’ Crew on Harrison Ford's Return as Han Solo

The director added that Poe Dameron is a combination of the director's assistant, Morgan Dameron, and his daughter's stuffed teddy bear, named Poe. The ball droid BB-8 was named so because the rolling android looks like both an 8 and two B's, what he called an "almost onomatopoeia." Domhnall Gleeson's General Hux may have been inspired by a name the director saw on a tombstone, in a cemetery near the Bad Robot offices, and Gwendoline Christie's Captain Phasma was named in honor of Don Coscarelli's 1979 cult classic Phantasm, because the iconic orb in that movie looks just like her new silver Stormtrooper armor. What do you think of these new details?

Star Wars: The Force Awakens comes to theaters December 18th, 2015.

New ‘Fugitive’ Movie Planned, Will Harrison Ford Return?

New ‘Fugitive’ Movie Planned, Will Harrison Ford Return?

Warner Bros. is moving forward on a new installment of The Fugitive, but they have not confirmed or denied that stars of the original 1993 hit, Harrison Ford and Tommy Lee Jones will return. At this time, it is not known if this is a reboot, remake or straight up sequel. Christina Hodson, who wrote the now-in-production drama Shut In starring Naomi Watts, will pen the screenplay.

The Fugitive is viewed as one of the best TV-to-Movie adaptations ever made, based on the original 1963 ABC series that ran for four seasons. The show starred David Janssen as Dr. Richard Kimble, who was accused of killing his wife. He goes on the run, searching for the one-armed man he believes is actually responsible for his wife's murder. The show culminated in a finale that was viewed by nearly half of the population who owned TVs at the time. Harrison Ford starred as Dr. Richard Kimble in the movie, and his tale was resolved in the third act. Tommy Lee Jones, however, playing the marshal that tracked down Kimble, returned as Samuel Gerard in the 1998 follow-up U.S. Marshals, which co-starred Wesley Snipes and Robert Downey Jr.

‘Living in the Age of Airplanes’ Trailer Narrated by Harrison Ford

National Geographic has released the first trailer for their upcoming documentary Living in the Age of Airplanes, which is narrated by longtime pilot Harrison Ford. The airplane has changed our world, but do we really understand exactly how much? Living in the Age of Airplanes reminds us how profoundly this amazing invention has changed the way we do just about everything. It also renews our appreciation for the airplane and stunningly conveys the wonder and grandeur of flying.

Not that long ago, traveling between continents was a migration. Now, on any given day, 100,000 flights transport people and products between any two points on Earth in a matter of hours. Indeed, the airplane may be the closest thing we have to a time machine. Filmed in 18 countries across all 7 continents, the film explores the countless ways the airplane affects our lives (even when we don't fly). With a fascinating take on history, breathtaking visuals, soaring music, and a truly unique perspective, Living in the Age of Airplanes shows the airplane in a fresh light as it takes audiences on a wondrous trip around the globe.

Harrison Ford Injured in Plane Crash; in Stable Condition

Harrison Ford, who reprises his role as Han Solo in Star Wars: The Force Awakens later this year, is in serious condition at a local Los Angeles hospital after he suffered multiple head injuries in a plane crash earlier today. The actor, a longtime and avid pilot, was flying a vintage two-seat plane today, when something apparently went wrong and he crash-landed at the Penmar Golf Course in Mar Vista, California. The actor did walk away from the crash, but suffered multiple head injuries, and was treated by two doctors who happened to be on the golf course, until emergency personnel arrived and transported him to a nearby hospital.

Sources first described the actor's injuries as "critical," but NBC News' sources stressed that his injuries "are better characterized as serious, including lacerations to the head and possible fractures." The crash happened at approximately 2:25 PM, shortly after the plane took off from the Santa Monica Airport, according to Ian Gregor of the Federal Aviation Administration. We'll keep you posted with more news on Harrison Ford's condition, and you can take a look at a photo of his crashed plane below.
