At Hollywood Outbreak, we have been speaking to Harrison Ford for years. When we would ask about Star Wars, Ford would barely touch the subject. So when it was announced she was reprising his iconic role as Han Solo in Star Wars: The Force Awakens we were surprised he would return to the beloved franchise. One of the huge reasons for Ford’s return to the franchise was J.J. Abrams, the latest film’s director and co-writer. Ford has known the filmmaker since he worked with the actor on the 1991 feature Regarding Henry, so the actor knew Han Solo was in safe hands.

The 1991 action film Point Break has become a cult classic. The film starring Patrick Swayze and Keanu Reeves and directed by Academy Award winner Kathryn Bigelow was a modest hit at the box office. However cable and home entertainment has kept the film alive and 24 years laterl the film has been remade starring Édgar Ramírez (Zero Dark Thirty) in the Patrick Swayze role.
Ramírez said they have kept some similarities from the 1991 film, but that they had to make the film their own. A carbon copy of the original would have been just a waste of time, and as Ramirez adds, the new version has a more modern feel to the proceedings.
The historical drama Saints & Strangers, headlined by Ron Livingston and Vincent Kartheiser, hits DVD February 16 and Digital HD January 25 via Sony Pictures Home Entertainment. Clocking in at four hours, the project premiered on National Geographic Channel and centered on the Pilgrims’ voyage to and eventual life in America. The country’s first settlers included 101 Pilgrims who sailed for 66 days on the Mayflower, where they eventually encountered a new world filled with resources and a new people. Ray Stevenson, Natascha McElhone, Tatanka Means, and Kalani Queypo also star in the feature.
In the miniseries, Kartheiser plays William Bradford, one of the signatories of the Mayflower Compact upon the Pilgrims’ arrival to Massachusetts in 1620. Bradford was also the author Of Plymouth Plantation, which documented the early days of the New England settlement. Livingston is John Carver, Plymouth Colony’s first governor.
Acclaimed composer Hans Zimmer crafted the movie’s main musical theme, with the series score composed by Bleeding Fingers Music. Special features on the DVD include deleted scenes.
Few actors, especially thespians who are almost 70 years old, can hold a movie on their own. Sylvester Stallone still has what it takes to open a movie at the top of the box office, as evidenced with the recent success of Creed. Part of Stallone’s staying power might be due to the tremendous amount of goodwill he’s built up with his fans.
Even after the box office success of his previous Rocky and Rambomovies made him a superstar, he’s never tried to distance himself from his fans, and whenever he’s asked, he’ll always take the time to sign an autograph. (Click on the audio bar to hear Sylvester Stallone)
