Good news, adolescent space warrior Ender Wiggin: We’d like to give you your own army. The bad news? The force is called Dragon Army and it never won a battle in its entire existence.

But… they do have cool uniforms.

In Ender’s Game, which opens in theaters on Nov. 1, Ender (Asa Butterfield) is a battle-school prodigy who might be the key to defeating an alien invasion. Harrison Ford plays Col. Graff, the military leader who hands Ender the army to do his dirty work.

Box office disaster: Harrison Ford's 'Paranoia' has the worst debut of 2013 (and his career)

paranoia-03

Together, Liam Hemsworth, Gary Oldman, and Harrison Ford have starred in some of the biggest blockbusters of all time. Hemsworth has The Hunger Games, Oldman had the Harry Potter films, and Ford starred in two little franchises called Star Wars and Indiana Jones.

But the trio of actors couldn’t lift the $40 million thriller Paranoia — which you may not have realized opened in 2,459 theaters on Friday — out of the box office doldrums. In fact, Paranoia bombed. Badly. The film earned just $3.5 million in its first three days, which yielded a pitiful $1,423 per-theater average. Not only is that the worst debut of 2013 for a movie opening in more than 2,000 theaters — stealing the inauspicious title from Tyler Perry Presents Peeples, which opened with $4.6 million in May — it’s the worst wide opening weekend of Ford’s entire career. Han Solo can usually do better than 13th place.

Paranoia was directed by Robert Luketic, the rom-com specialist behind films like Legally Blonde, The Ugly Truth, and Monster-in-Law. Neither audiences nor critics enjoyed his take on the business thriller, though. The film currently has a 2 percent “Fresh” rating on Rotten Tomatoes, and polled crowds stamped it with an awful “C+” CinemaScore grade. Ads for the film were confusing, and despite their effort to explain the storyline, made the film look like little more than a jumbled mess of corporate conspiracy.

'Expendables 3' update: Harrison Ford is in, Bruce Willis may be out, and Sylvester Stallone is cranky

Enders-Game-Harrison-Ford.jpg

In further proof that the Expendables franchise is essentially a multimillion-dollar version of the box your parents threw all your old action figures into when they decided to turn your childhood bedroom into a study, Sylvester Stallone has tweeted that Harrison Ford is joining Expendables 3. Ford’s representatives confirm that the busy actor has joined the threequel’s ensemble cast, presumably as a character from Indiana who explicitly prefers to work “solo” and is secretly an android riding a unicorn, because nostalgia.

'Enders Game' trailer: Harrison Ford has a secret

Enders-Game-Trailer.jpg

In Ender’s Game, director Gavin Hood’s adaptation of Orson Scott Card’s sci-fi novel, Asa Butterfield plays humanity’s last great hope against an alien invasion. Millions of innocent lives were lost during the last war, and Col. Hyrum Graff (Harrison Ford) sees in Ender the talent to defeat the aliens once and for all. “You alone can understand the enemy,” he tells the youngster in the new trailer. “You will be the one to save mankind.”

But the new trailer finally hints that all is not exactly as it seems. “THIS IS NO GAME,” reads the trailer, and Col. Graff is portrayed for the first time as someone who has a larger agenda. “We should tell him the truth,” says Ben Kingsley’s face-painter. “When this is all over, what will be left of the boy?” asks Viola Davis. Is Ender a mere pawn in game of life?

'Ender's Game' clip shows Harrison Ford preparing for war

Comic-Con 2013 has officially begun, and although Summit is still dealing with that whole Orson Scott Card boycott debacle, the studio is also shifting Ender’s Game‘s marketing campaign into high gear. A new viral clip recently hit the web that features Harrison Ford as Colonel Hyrum Graff delivering a message on behalf of the International Fleet. “Let the courage of Mazer Rackham be your inspiration,” he says.

In the universe of Ender’s Game, Rackham (Ben Kingsley) is revered as a legendary military commander (Mild spoilers ahead) who’s thought to be dead but becomes an important mentor in Ender’s training. Check out the clip below: READ FULL STORY

Enders-Game-Harrison-Ford.jpg

As Ender’s Game prepares for its Nov. 1 take-off, Lionsgate is shifting its marketing efforts into high gear. Earlier this week, the studio unveiled a slick new website to promote the film, and now it has announced a major rollout at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con.

Fans at the convention will be able to hear from the stars of the film at a Hall H panel featuring Harrison Ford, Asa Butterfield, Hailee Steinfeld and Abigail Breslin, as well as director Gavin Hood and producer Robert Orci. They can also check out a huge Ender’s Game exhibit, which will be constructed outside the Hilton Gaslamp and give viewers a chance to insert photos of themselves into the Battle Room.

'Paranoia' trailer: Liam Hemsworth stars opposite Gary Oldman, Harrison Ford in corporate thriller

Gale, you’re not in District 12 anymore.

Hunger Games actor Liam Hemsworth is going from playing a poor boy in a post-apocalyptic world to a Brooklyn guy climbing the corporate ladder in upcoming movie Paranoia. The first trailer for the book-based thriller hit the web today.

Adapted from the 2004 novel of the same name by Joseph Finder, Paranoia follows Adam Cassidy, a recent college grad trying to get his career started with an entry-level job at Wyatt Corporation. When the CEO (Gary Oldman) enlists him as a company spy and has him steal trade secrets from his rival (Harrison Ford), things start to get messy as he’s caught between two kings of the corporate world.

The trailer has a bit of a Paycheck vibe (sans memory wipe), as Adam gets involved with revolutionary new technology that he decides he must destroy. Also, check out how Adam gets groomed to play the part of young corporate hotshot — with the preppy polo shirts, crisp expensive suits, and parted hair, it looks like The Social Network‘s Winklevoss twins were actually meant to be the Winklevoss triplets.

Watch the trailer, which debuted on Yahoo.com, below: READ FULL STORY

'Ender's Game' trailer: Harrison Ford recruits Asa Butterfield as 'a new kind of soldier'

The film adaptation of Ender’s Game invades theaters on November 1, and with less than six months until takeoff, Summit has begun its marketing campaign in earnest.

You’ve already seen Asa Butterfield and Harrison Ford as Ender Wiggin and Colonel Hyrum Graff. You’ve glimpsed Hailee Steinfeld as Petra Arkanian. You’ve gotten your first look a tatted-up Ben Kingsley as Mazer Rackham. And you’ve peeked at the inside of the Battle Room. But get ready, Launchies: the first official Ender’s Game trailer is here.

The clip, which just hit “the nets,” amps up the action and portrays Ender as the fearsome commander that fans of Orson Scott Card’s novel know him to be. We don’t see much of Ender as a timid launchie, but that’s likely because his journey was compressed into a single year for the film. Director Gavin Hood explained the practical change to EW back in December.

The trailer also touts the high-profile cast (see a full cast gallery), which not only includes Butterfield, Ford, Kingsley, and Steinfeld, but also Viola Davis, who’s playing a re-conceived version of Anderson, and Abigail Breslin as Ender’s sister, Valentine. Davis provided my favorite moment in the trailer with her cautionary line to Ford: “You really don’t see them as children, do you?” Those few words suggest that the novel’s theme of childhood manipulation has made it safely onto the screen in Ender’s Game — or at least I hope so.

For first looks at Valentine, the Battle Room, the fellow Launchies, and the inside of the the International Fleet’s space station, watch the clip below, but do so at your own peril. It’s VERY spoilery:

Harrison Ford talks 'Blade Runner' at AFI event: Memories from production, the 'Is Deckard a Replicant?' debate, and more

Blade Runner was a box office disappointment when it hit theaters in 1982, but since then it has been showered with accolades and developed a significant following that has placed it in the pantheon of great sci-fi movies.

One organization that has been very kind to the gritty neo-noir movie is the American Film Institute. Blade Runner is on AFI’s list of the greatest 100 movies of all time and is No. 6 on the prestigious film school’s list of the best sci-fi movies. The movie’s star, Harrison Ford, was the 28th recipient of the AFI LIfetime Achievement Award.

AFI celebrated the legacy of Blade Runner, along with 11 other classic films, at Arclight Hollywood on Wednesday night for the institute’s third AFI Night at the Movies. Ford was on hand to introduce the screening of Blade Runner: The Final Cut, an edition of the film closer to director Ridley Scott’s original vision for the project that features some notable differences from the theatrical release version, such as the lack of narration.

Here are a few highlights from Ford’s introduction to the film, both some of his dry humor and his memories from making Blade Runner: READ FULL STORY
