There is an amazing podcast called The Cine-Files featuring filmmaker Steve Morris and media presenter and actor John Rocha. Throughout over fifty podcasts they’ve covered some classic films in their discussions about film, filmmaking, and the overall enjoyment of film. A couple of weeks ago they did one on Harrison’s film BLADE RUNNER in advance of the sequel BLADE RUNNER 2049 to come out in October starring Harrison who will reprise his role of Rick Deckard and Ryan Gosling. This podcast is a good primer for your enjoyment of Ridley Scott’s cult film also starring Rutger Hauer (Roy Batty), Sean Young (Rachel Tyrell), Joe Turkel (Eldon Tyrell), Daryl Hannah (Pris), Joanna Cassidy (Zhora), Edward James Olmos (Gaff), M. Emmett Walsh (Bryant), James Hong (Hannibal Chew), William Sanderson (J. F. Sebastian), Morgan Paull (Holden) and the late Brion James (Leon). The incredible score was composed and conducted by Vangelis, and features stunning visuals from Douglas Trumbull (“2001: A Space Odyssey”) and Syd Mead. In this podcast both Morris and Rocha cover the background of the film’s production, plus the legacy of this film including the various editions Ridley Scott made. I’ll include all links to Steve and John’s social media pages after the jump. . John and Steve have also done podcasts on STAR WARS directed by George Lucas, and their very first podcast was dedicated to the Steven Spielberg film and Harrison Ford classic, RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK, both of which I will post here at a later date, for now please sit back for about two hours and enjoy this aural pleasure

Warner Brothers dropped a new trailer for Harrison’s upcoming sequel to BLADE RUNNER. Here we see more of Harrison who is reprising his role as Rick Deckard.
A while back I had thought of creating a fansite for the incredible Harrison Ford. The reason was because I’m a little older than your average faniste creator and because of that I have collected quite a bit of memorabilia from Harrison’s burgeoning film work from STAR WARS (back when it was called STAR WARS, no A New Hope or Episode IV), RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK, BLADE RUNNER, RETURN OF THE JEDI, INDIANA JONES AND THE TEMPLE OF DOOM and much more. I have a ton of articles and collectors booklets and such that are what some would call geeky. This is stuff that can’t be found anywhere else on the web, but I’ll be sharing with you. However, first things first. There are a lot of changes I want to make to the site to bring it into line with my other fansites, namely rearranging the gallery, reconfiguring the sidebar, checking for dead links, and updating the affiliates and partner sites. While Alikat did an amazing job of posting the screencaps and such that she has, I want to make it more consolidated in some areas, but in others make it again more like my other sites. This will include updating a lot of the screencaps, magazine scans, and updating the photos sections in terms of events Harrison has attended. I also want to set up a proper press section for the site. For now I’m going to leave the layout as it is since Ali only put this up a little while ago, but I’ll soon be updating the layout as well. So for now, my name is Dianne and I really want to thank you for sticking by here while I get a feel for the place. Take care and here’s to more Harrison Ford.
EW – This Sunday marks the 35th anniversary of Blade Runner, the iconic sci-fi noir from director Ridley Scott. What better way to celebrate — and help ramp up our anticipation for the upcoming sequel — than an exclusive look at Blade Runner 2049? “We are running towards the finishing line right now,” director Denis Villeneuve (Arrival) told EW recently. “We are elated. It feels like Christmas as we look at the completed shots.”
We know what he means. Just take a look at the video above, titled Blade Runner 2049: Time to Live, which boasts nearly four minutes from the film along with behind-the-scenes footage. Beginning with Officer K (Ryan Gosling) walking through what looks like deserted casino while Frank Sinatra’s “One For My Baby (And One More For the Road)” plays on the soundtrack, the completely compelling world of 2049 unfolds — a teeming city with holograms the size of skyscrapers, weather that has gone berserk, Jared Leto playing a mysterious someone named “Wallace,” and, of course, the welcome return of Harrison Ford as Rick Deckard.
THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER – The new posters don’t feature anything the December teaser didn’t show.
Two posters for Blade Runner 2049 were released on Thursday. And while they are both very slick, they just don’t top the poster for the 1982 film.
The new posters separately feature Harrison Ford, who is returning as Rick Deckard, and co-star Ryan Gosling.
They are fairly basic, not featuring anything the December teaser didn’t show. The Gosling poster is done in cool colors and shows his futuristic police cruiser. The Ford poster is done in warm colors and shows the decaying head of a massive statue, also seen in the teaser.
Neither gives any movie credits or even a release date, so there is likely a third edition coming, but so far, these posters just cannot top the one for the 1982 film. That drawn poster was epic, as it was futuristic but dripping with noir. It didn’t give anything away plot wise but was intriguing with the tag “Man has met his match. Now it’s his problem.”
EW – Thousands of voices cried out and were suddenly silenced Thursday — awestruck as 40 years of galactic history united on stage before them.
At the opening event of Star Wars Celebration in Orlando, Florida, on Thursday, original Star Wars director George Lucas and original stars Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill, Peter Mayhew, and Anthony Daniels celebrated 40 years of the saga and paid tribute to Carrie Fisher in the process (more on the Fisher tribute here).
The event was hosted by Warwick Davis, who was just a boy when he played Wicket the Ewok in Return of the Jedi and most recently appeared as a tiny Rebel warrior in Rogue One. Also in attendance were Billy Dee Williams, Hayden Christiansen, Ian McDiarmid, and Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy.
Ahead, highlights from the event as it happened in real-time.
— Kicks off with a video showing footage of fans lined up a long time ago: May 1977, outside the Chinese Theatre in Hollywood when the original movie premiered to sell-0ut crowds. It cuts to shots of present-day kids, dressed in costumes at recent Celebration conventions, accompanied by their parents (many of them dressed as their favorites heroes, villains, and creatures, too.)
