BAFTA Awards 2018: Timothee Chalamet would make history as just the 3rd American to win Rising Star Award

BAFTA Awards 2018: Timothee Chalamet would make history as just the 3rd American to win Rising Star Award
Timothee Chalamet is in the midst of a breakthrough year with supporting roles in “Lady Bird” and “Hostiles” and a starring performance in “Call Me by Your Name.” As a result he’s racked up two nominations at the BAFTAs: Best Actor for “Call Me” as well as the Rising Star Award for breakthrough performers. But if Chalamet wins Rising Star he would be only the third American to do so.

Chalamet has an uphill battle for Best Actor; he sits in second place in our predictions with odds of 22/1. Currently in first place is Gary Oldman for “Darkest Hour” with overwhelming odds of 1/10 for his performance as British Prime Minister Winston Churchill. And right behind Chalamet is four-time BAFTA winner Daniel Day-Lewis for “Phantom Thread” with odds of 40/1.

Rising Star will be Chalamet’s best chance to pick up some hardware at the BAFTAs. He’s is in a

Steven Spielberg to shoot Indiana Jones 5 in 2019

Steven Spielberg to shoot Indiana Jones 5 in 2019
Despite initial reports that Steven Spielberg would make his West Side Story remake the next film on his schedule, The Hollywood Reporter is suggesting the musical will remain on the back-burner whilst the director finds the right cast, pushing the filming of Indiana Jones 5 to the top of the list.

The report claims that Spielberg will ask Harrison Ford to don the Fedora in 2019, with a proposed 2020 release date.

There shouldn’t be any concern with such project juggling from Spielberg. Anyone who can film Jurassic Park and Schindler’s List in the same year (1993), and cram in a five-star awards contender such as The Post during his Ready Player One downtime, should be able to create a film to banish memories of Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, and reinvent a classic musical for a new generation.

Spielberg Will Begin Shooting Indiana Jones 5 in 2019

While Disney and LucasFilm are keeping plenty busy with their massive Star Wars franchise, plans are also in the works for Indiana Jones 5, which will start production at some point in 2019. This falls in line with a report from last week, which revealed that both this Indiana Jones sequel and West Side Story are director Steven Spielberg's next films. A new report claims the filmmaker will begin production on Indy 5 next year, and then move directly into West Side Story, though it isn't clear if that second project will also be shot in 2019, or if it will be held until 2020.

We haven't heard much on Indiana Jones 5 over the past year, although Disney did hand out a July 10, 2020 release date for this adventure last April. And they are apparently standing by that date. Producer Frank Marshall revealed back in December 2016 that the sequel didn't have a script yet, but

Sean Connery explains why he turned down Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull

Sean Connery has been in retirement since 2003’s The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, but it seems he did briefly consider coming out of retirement to reprise the role of Professor Henry Jones in Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. However, he ultimately passed on the opportunity – not because the movie was terrible, but rather because he felt there wasn’t enough for his character to do.

“I spoke with Steven Spielberg, but it didn’t work out,” explained Connery in an interview unearthed by THR. “It was not that generous a part, worth getting back into the harness and go for. And they had taken the story in a different line anyway, so the father of Indy was kind of really not that important. I had suggested they kill him in the movie, it would have taken care of it better.”

"Indiana Jones" In 2019

  • SneakPeek
According to Lucasfilm, the next "Indiana Jones" movie, to be directed by Steven Spielberg, from a screenplay by David Koepp, starring Harrison Ford, will be released July 19, 2019:

"'Indiana Jones' is one of the greatest heroes in cinematic history," said a Disney spokesperson, "and we can't wait to bring him back to the screen in 2019.

"It's rare to have such a perfect combination of director, producers, actor and role, and we couldn’t be more excited to embark on this adventure with Harrison and Steven..."

"I've always thought there was an opportunity to do another," said Ford.

"But I didn't want to do it without Steven. And I didn't want to do it without a really good script. And happily we're working on both. Steven is developing a script now that I think we're going to be very happy with."

LucasFilm President Kathleen Kennedy will produce the new "Indiana Jones".

Cate Blanchett Is Cheesy as Hell in Thor: Ragnarok, but It Totally Works

There are a lot of reasons to be excited about Thor: Ragnarok. Based on the trailers, we can swoon over Thor's new haircut, a somehow more-handsome-than-before Hulk, and the sweet swagger of our old pal Loki. That's all fine and dandy, but in my opinion, the most exciting detail about the third Thor movie is the inclusion of Cate Blanchett. This Oscar-winning actress is a jack of all trades: she's shined in dramas like Carol and Blue Jasmine and fantasies like Lord of the Rings. But when it comes to her role as an evil character, there's an added level of delight. The iconic actress joins the fold as Hela, the eldest daughter of Odin and sister of Thor and Loki. Oh, and she's also the goddess of death. RelatedWhat Those 2 Postcredits Scenes in Thor: Ragnarok Mean What is it about an evil Cate Blanchett that really sucks me in?

Harrison Ford Hasn't Been Better in Years

Harrison Ford Hasn't Been Better in Years
[Warning: This story contains spoilers for Blade Runner 2049.]

Though he has a vast filmography, Harrison Ford is largely defined by three characters he portrayed in the early 1980s: Han Solo, Indiana Jones and Rick Deckard. This trio of heroic figures share some DNA aside from the man who plays them, but what those roles have in common now is that Ford is has been revisiting them. In 2008, after a nearly two-decade hiatus, the actor donned the fedora and held the whip again in Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. Two years ago, he stepped back...

Terminator 6: why franchise-building is its biggest enemy

Ryan Lambie Sep 27, 2017

The Terminator series is making its third attempt at a trilogy. But would it be better as a one-off story, Ryan wonders...

Nb: The following contains spoilers for all the Terminator films released so far.

Genisys probably seemed like a good idea at the time. After the so-so critical and financial performance of Terminator 3 and Terminator: Salvation, the fifth entry in the series would, as far as its producers were concerned, take the saga back to its glory days: the nightmarish chases of The Terminator and the eye-popping special effects of T2, widely regarded as the franchise's high-water mark.

Will Marion Ravenwood Return in Indiana Jones 5?

Will Marion Ravenwood Return in Indiana Jones 5?
The Indiana Jones 5 story is finished, but details are being kept under tight lock and key until further drafts of the screenplay can be hammered out and perfected. We know for certain that Harrison Ford will reprise his role as Dr. Henry Jones Jr. We also know that there is no way the franchise is bringing back Shia Labeouf and his character Mutt Williams. But one lingering question does remain. Will we see the return of Marion Ravenwood, played by the ravishing Karen Allen?

It makes sense that we'd see her in some capacity. She first debuted in Raiders of the Lost Ark way back in 1981. And no other female character in the franchise has ever been able to carry the same kind of torch. Ravenwood did turn back up in the last installment, Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. She didn't just put in a cameo,

Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull” ended with the tease that Shia Labeouf‘s character, Henry “Mutt” Jones III, may take up his father’s job as a globe-trotting, whip-slinging archeologist. But David Koepp, screenwriter for the fifth “Indiana Jones” movie, says his script will be 100 percent Mutt-free. In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Koepp said that the next Indy film will have the same format as the others — with Harrison Ford playing Indy as he searches for an artifact with immense power — but noted that “the Shia Labeouf character is not in the film.” Koepp...

Indiana Jones 5 Has a Script, Shia Labeouf's Mutt Won't Return
Fans who hated Shia Labeouf's Mutt Williams in Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull can breath a sigh of relief. The character will not return, played by Labeouf or otherwise. A script has been completed for the movie, and is currently undergoing rewrites. No set start date has been announced, but screenwriter David Koepp assures Entertainment Weekly that the process is humming along quiet nicely.

Koepp won't reveal whether or not Indiana Jones will get a true protege, as Disney plans to reboot the franchise. It's believed that Disney and Lucasfilm are looking to reignite this title as a viable new series, though after Indiana Jones 5, neither Harrison Ford nor director Steven Spielberg will be back. So how it continues is anyone's guess at this point. Just know it won't be the continuing adventures of Mutt. Says Koepp.

Indiana Jones 5 : Shia Labeouf's Mutt Williams Will Not Be Part Of The Film.

For fans of the Indiana Jones franchise, the last film, Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, was met with heavy criticism. Besides the fact that folks didn't care too much for the aliens in the film, another aspect that annoyed fans was Shia Labeouf's Mutt Williams. The character was revealed to be the son of Indiana Jones and Marion Ravenwood, but he never seemed to really fit into the franchise, and left most fans bitter. Screenwriter of the yet-untitled fifth Indiana Jones installment, David Koepp, gave fans some relief while speaking with Entertainment Weekly.

“Harrison plays Indiana Jones, that I can certainly say… and the Shia Labeouf character is not in the film. We’re plugging away at it. In terms of when we would start, I think that’s up to Mr. Spielberg and Mr. Ford… I know we’ve got a script we’re mostly happy with.
