Harrison Ford brought Han Solo back to the big screen in The Force Awakens, 32 years after Return of the Jedi. He resurrected Indiana Jones in Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, 19 years after The Last Crusade. So it shouldn’t surprise anybody that he’s returning as Rick Deckard in Blade Runner: 2049, 35 years after starring in the original Blade Runner. It wasn’t easy to convince Ford to get on board with a sequel to the sci-fi classic, but once he saw the story, he was all in.
Blade Runner: 2049 opens in theaters on October 6.
After bringing back two of the biggest ’90s soaps — Beverly Hills 90210 and Melrose Place — The CW is venturing back into retro soap territory with its reboot of the ’80s classic Dynasty. (Not surprisingly, all three were originally produced by the late king of TV soaps, Aaron Spelling.) While storylines about gay characters and racial issues are commonplace on TV today, they were considered risqué for the ’80s, but Dynasty wasn’t afraid to tackle them. And you can expect the diversity and adventurous storytelling spirit to continue in the new version. In fact, the lead role of Krystal Carrington — played by blonde bombshell Linda Evans in the original — has morphed into Cristal Carrington, played by Peruvian actress Nathalie Kelley. Kelley told us the change in her character’s background is going to make a big difference in the show. (Click on the media bar to hear Nathalie Kelley)
Mark Feuerstein drew on his own life story to create his new CBS comedy, 9JKL. For a time, he actually lived in an apartment building sandwiched between other family members, living in the apartments on either side of his. Feuerstein told us it was an interesting period in his life, as he balanced real-life drama with working on his previous comedy, Royal Pains. (Click on the media bar below to hear Mark Feuerstein)
One of the gaming industries more nightmarish titles (and I mean that in a good way), The Evil Within 2 is back with the further adventures of Detective Sebastian Castellanos. This time out he is forced to team up with Mobius, the organization that ruined his former life, to save his daughter Lily.
Taking place in an alternate dimension called STEM, Sebastian will face threats on every corner, and one of his antagonists is Stefano Valentini, a murderous photographer who’s featured in The Evil Within 2’s latest trailer. Along with giving us a glimpse into Stefano’s twisted mind (he sees the dark world of STEM as a thing of beauty!), the trailer also shows the pre-order bonus (“Last Chance Pack”) which features a bust handgun, along with crafting and health supplies.

The Evil Within 2 appropriately comes out October 13 (Friday the 13th) on PlayStation 4, Windows PC, and Xbox One.
Recently seen as the morally complicated antagonist in War for the Planet of the Apes,Woody Harrelson delivers another standout performance in The Glass Castle. Based on writer Jeanette Walls‘ 2005 memoir, the film centers on Walls’ challenging upbringing with a loving yet alcoholic dad (Harrelson) and an often neglectful, artistic inclined mother (Naomi Watts). Brie Larsonheadlines the film as Walls.
I read the book and I thought it was like just the most incredible pieces of writing because it’s something that everybody could relate to,” said Harrelson. “Everybody has some aspect of this to their family. Whether it’s one or both of the parents, the siblings, the children – all of it. For some reason a lot of people seem to relate to it and I was no exception. I felt like it was very great writing and very powerful.”
