COMINGSOON.NET – Harrison Ford and Ryan Gosling want you to win a trip to the Blade Runner 2 set
Alcon Entertainment’s Blade Runner sequel is now filming in Budapest and there’s a chance that you could experience it firsthand. Ryan Gosling is the host of a new Omaze video that features both he and Harrison Ford presenting a special message from the Blade Runner 2 set. As has been done in the past on productions like Star Wars: The Force Awakens and Star Trek Beyond, Omaze has a new campaign designed to raise money for a trio of important organizations: The Enough Project, Imerman Angels and The Hummingbirds Foundation. In today’s video, Gosling focuses on The Enough Project but, if past Omaze campaigns are any indication, we’re likely to see additional videos focused on the other two.
TRAVEL AOL UK – Harrison Ford invited a lucky teenage girl to fly with him in his DeHavilland Beaver on Thursday.
The Star Wars actor was at the AirVenture Oshkosh 2016 air show in Wisconsin when 16-year-old Jodie Gawthrop won a national content through the Young Eagles programme, which introduces children to flying.
Ford was the scheme’s chairman from 2004 to 2009.
Following the 15-minute flight, Ford told the Associated Press that he and Gawthrop talked shop in the air.
“It was really, really fun. We spent some time talking about the airplane and what I was doing and going through the checklists,” Ford said.
“Jodie actually asked me if celebrities use checklists. I said, ‘absolutely. They need them.'”
JH NEWS AND GUIDE – Harrison Ford, longtime part-time Jackson Hole resident, supporter of causes and friend of Chewbaca, has been named the latest recipient of a prestigious conservation award.
The actor will receive the Murie Spirit of Conservation Award, given periodically by the Murie Center, the center announced last week.
The Murie Center, which became a program of Teton Science Schools last October, said Ford has narrated many environmental documentaries, including the film “Arctic Dance,” which told the life story of Mardy Murie and her husband, Olaus. The pioneering conservationists lived much of their lives in Jackson and at an inholding in Grand Teton National Park that is now the Murie Center headquarters.
“Arctic Dance” was produced by Jackson Hole filmmakers Bonnie Kreps and Charlie Craighead, with Ford narrating.
Ford “has been key to both amplifying the legacy of the Muries as well as bringing mainstream attention to important global conservation issues for more than 25 years,” Science Schools vice president of advancement Patrick Daley said in release.
Ford also serves as vice chairman of Conservation International.
Mardy Murie is often called the “grandmother of American conservation” and her husband did important work studying elk and coyotes. The two campaigned for the creation of the Arctic National Wildlilfe Refuge in the 1950s, and after Olaus’ death in 1963 Mardy continued an effort that led to a doubling of the refuge’s acreage and protection of more than 104 million acres of other Alaskan wild lands.
Mardy Murie received the presidential Medal of Freedom from President Clinton. She died in 2003 at age 101.
The Murie family also included two other important wildlife biologists, Adolph and Louise, who besides being husband and wife were Olaus’s half-brother and Mardy’s half-sister.
Previous recipients of the Murie Award have been Addie Donnan, one of the founders of the Murie Center; Drs. George Schaller and Robert Krear, field biologists and conservationists who traveled with the Muries on the 1956 Sheenjek Expedition that led to creation of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge; Gretchen Long, a founder of the Murie Center and now a board member of the National Park Advisory Board; Luther Propst, founder of the Sonoran Institute, a leader in sustainable water, land use and community development work; and Jackson Hole native John Turner, a former director of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and assistant secretary of state of oceans and international environmental and scientific affairs.
Since becoming part of Teton Science Schools the Murie Center has continued “to bring people together to inspire actions that preserve nature,” Daley said.
Teton Science Schools began in 1967 to offer outdoor education. Besides the Murie Center in Moose, the school has a 900-acre Jackson campus for its pre-K through 12th grade Journeys School and maintains a graduate program near Kelly in Grand Teton National Park.
COLLIDER – When Indiana Jones 5 hits theaters on July 19, 2019, franchise star Harrison Ford will be 76 years old—but that doesn’t mean Indy 5 spells doom for the titular adventurer. After rumors of reboots and casting replacements swirled, Steven Spielberg confirmed in March that he will indeed be returning to direct Indiana Jones 5 with Ford in the starring role once again, and while the filmmaker has two other movies to make before then, he’s already teasing a bit of the story.
As part of an in-depth and enlightening profile of the director over at THR, the filmmaker seems to suggest that fans will respond to Indiana Jones 5 better than they did Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull while also promising that there will be no Indy death scene a la Star Wars: The Force Awakens:
Spielberg says he’s “super excited” about [Indiana Jones 5], dated for July 2019: “I think this one is straight down the pike for the fans.” He won’t reveal plot details, except this: “The one thing I will tell you is I’m not killing off Harrison [Ford] at the end of it.”
Frequent collaborator David Koepp, who penned Jurassic Park as well as War of the Worlds, The Lost World: Jurassic Park, and yes, Crystal Skull is on scripting duties, but curiously left out of the Indy 5 crew when it was announced was George Lucas. It remains to be seen if he will return to produce the sequel—tradition follows that Lucas comes up with the Indiana Jones stories and Spielberg directs—or if he’s really left showbusiness for good. Whatever the case, he and Spielberg remain best buds so I’d be shocked if he wasn’t at least consulting on the project in an unofficial capacity.
