Well, that sure was close. Turns out that Harrison Ford/Blade Runner 2 rumor wasn’t true after all. Deadline had a chance to clear the air with Alcon Entertainment, the producer/financier working with Ridley Scott on the upcoming reboot. Andrew Kosove (Alcon big-cheese) had this to say:
“It is absolutely patently false that there has been any discussion about Harrison Ford being in Blade Runner … To be clear, what we are trying to do with Ridley now is go through the painstaking process of trying to break the back of the story, figure out the direction we’re going to take the movie and find a writer to work on it. The casting of the movie could not be further from our minds at this moment.”
Well…Good thing we waited a day to really check our sources, rather than post an article detailing Ford’s return to Blade Runner! You see, here at Cinema Recon, we go the extra mile to make damn, doubly sure every single news story is proven and factual. I mean, what kind of self-respecting journalists would we be if we were to flood the internets with wild rumors and hearsay??
Oh, speaking of journalism, a reliable source has given me super top-secret insider information that Batman dies at the end of The Dark Knight Rises.
Sad Batman is sad
During our review of Chronicle, we couldn’t help but go off on one of our tangents about how parties and dorm rooms are never portrayed quite right in movies. How can this be so difficult!?
All the Internets are buzzing right now with the new and improved trailer for The Amazing Spider-man. In all honesty, and if you’ve been listening to any of the shows, or hanging around outside my living room window (please stop), I am not looking forward to this movie all that much. I mean yes, I am looking forward to it in the standard amount I guess, but I really have no excitement built up for this movie.
I cant quite figure out why I am not excited though. Maybe its because they started moving on this reboot before Spider-man 3 was even released in theaters. Or maybe because I’m not buying the emo, dark depressed, me against the world Andrew Garfield – the kid who plays Peter Parker. Or maybe its because, for the love of God, it still looks cheesy as all hell seeing someone swing from buildings!!!
I don’t understand how this could possibly be difficult! Michael Bay can use CGI to turn a Rubik’s cube into a god damn robot the size of the Sears Tower with more moving parts than the number of plastic surgeries Joan Rivers has had, but for some unknown reason nobody can seem to make the simple physics of an object swinging up, and then swinging back down look real! Its ridiculous!!!
Either way, as Paul and I say after talking about a movie that we really aren’t all that interested in… I’ll see it. And you know what, I will probably think its OK. But I promise you this… I WILL be covering my eyes during all “swinging from buildings and shit” scenes.
Don't be mad Jake. Its not his fault he cant swing like meeee!
