I was looking at some videos of Harrison on Youtube and found this quite humourous one with his COWBOYS & ALIENS director Jon Favreau where they talk about the film, how he got the role of Han Solo in STAR WARS, carpentry for Francis Ford Coppola who Harrison worked with on APOCALYPSE NOW. The interview was funny and I thought I’d share it with you. I’m not sure how much Alikat covered in terms of the film but I thought this would be a cute interview for my visitors and a fun thing I’m calling Flashback Ford. Enjoy.



Another great interview with Harrison talking about BLADE RUNNER 2049 and the original BLADE RUNNER. Again being candid about his career and private life, Harrison is very praiseworthy of Ryan Gosling, Denis Villeneuve and the film, while remaining non-committal about his past with Ridley Scott. He also talks about Han Solo’s death and takes his hat off for Mark Hamill’s (Luke Skywalker) herculean task of keeping the STAR WARS franchise on the straight and narrow in light of the sudden passing of co-star Carrie Fisher (Leia Organa). All in all a wonderful interview.



Harrison sat down with PBS’ Charlie Rose to discuss BLADE RUNNER 2049 and bringing Rick Deckard back after thirty-five years. He also talks about flying, life and why Han Solo had to die. It’s a very revealing interview, which is a bit shocking for someone like Harrison who has guarded his privacy for so long.



In the press junket for BLADE RUNNER 2049, Harrison stopped by Live With Kelly & Ryan to discuss the film. He also dispelled any rumours of his return to the STAR WARS franchise as Han Solo saying the character is dead. I loved what he said about the “utility of the character.” Though I’m still not happy with STAR WARS VI: THE FORCE AWAKENS in that it wasn’t an original film, Harrison did finally get his wish to have Han killed off. In my mind though he’s still in his seat on the Millennium Falcon with Chewy galaxy hopping. Ah the memories. He also talked about his first role in DEAD HEAT ON A MERRY-GO-ROUND and the story about his being told he wasn’t a “star”. You can find the screencaps from that film in this post: “Dead Heat On A Merry-Go-Round” Screencaps .



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

MOVIE WEB – Last week, we reported that Disney and LucasFilm will debut the full-length Star Wars: The Force Awakens documentary Secrets of the Force Awakens: A Cinematic Journey at the SXSW Film Festival today. This documentary will be part of the bonus features on the upcoming Digital HD and Blu-ray Combo Pack release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and in case you weren’t able to see the documentary in Austin, we have a sneak peek from Good Morning America, along with a new trailer. The sneak peek includes plenty of behind-the-scenes footage, along with excerpts from John Boyega’s actual audition tape.We also see footage from the now-iconic final shot, where Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) meets Rey (Daisy Ridley) on his island sanctuary, with Mark Hamill revealing that “this feeling” came over him for the first time since he was on the Tunisia set for the original classic, Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope. We also hear from Gwendoline Christie (Captain Phasma), and Adam Driver exclaims that it was such a hassle to put on his Kylo Ren costume, it helped him get into character.This preview also explores the famous scene where Kylo Ren kills his father, Han Solo (Harrison Ford). Adam Driver revealed that this particular scene “terrified” him, while Harrison Ford stated that the scene “resolved” his destiny in a “powerful and effective way.” In addition to this sneak peek, we also have a full trailer for Secrets of the Force Awakens: A Cinematic Journey, along with photos from the SXSW premiere, featuring J.J. Abrams and R2-D2, along with several of the Star Wars: The Force Awakens visual effects artists.
