It's a Ridley Scott-packed weekend. The filmmaker's secretive, kinda "Alien"-related film, "Prometheus," is right around the corner and the buzz and promotion are at an all time high. That film's star, Noomi Rapace, is on the cover of the New York Times magazine this weekend (with some spoilers along to boot), and as an extra added incentive to see the film in theaters (like you need one), Fox and The Weinstein Company evidently plan to put the trailer for Quentin Taratino's "Django Unchained" in front of it when it opens on June 8th.

It was just over a week ago when director Robert Luketic revealed that, with the hesit flick "Brilliant" starring Gerard Butler a bit further off than he thought, he was now looking at two possibilities for his next film. One was a revenge thriller with Zhang Ziyi and the other was something with Liam Hemsworth. Well, one of them is moving forward, and it has a helluva cast.

Other than Michael Fassbender and Carey Mulligan, the other performance from Steve McQueen's "Shame" that's earned significant praise is that of Nicole Beharie, who portrayed the woman who offers Brandon a fleeting chance at a normal relationship. Our own Venice review of the film described her as "a real find, painting a vivid, warm picture with only a few scenes; she should go on to bigger and better things from here on out." We certainly weren't wrong as the actress has now joined Brian Helgeland's upcoming biopic of Jackie Robinson, the first African-American baseball player to join the Major Leagues.

First it was reported Harrison Ford was in talks for the brewing new "Blade Runner" movie, then that was shot down by the film's producer, but now, director Ridley Scott reveals he really has no idea at this point.

Over the weekend, reports surfaced that Harrison Ford was in talks to return as Deckard in Ridley Scott's brewing "Blade Runner" sequel. The news came as a major shock, notably because when the project was first announced, it was said it would be "a total reinvention." Well, for those who were confused and concerned over Ford returning, rest easy, because it turns out those reports were erroneous.

One of the bigger news stories of last year was the report that, on the back of his sort-of-return to the "Alien" franchise for "Prometheus," which is set in the same universe, Ridley Scott was planning to go back to his other sci-fi classic, attaching himself to a new "Blade Runner" film, after Alcon Entertainment acquired the rights to the series. But it was unclear for some time what form the film would take; a direct sequel? A prequel? Or, like "Prometheus," a mostly original project riffing on the same world and concepts?

Oh, Harrison Ford. As we documented in our Essentials feature in the summer, it's a long time since the actor, once one of the most reliable stars in Hollywood, has been on form. And it seems that every potential comeback, from "Hollywood Homicide" and "Crossing Over" to last year's "Morning Glory" and this year's "Cowboys & Aliens" has fallen short, even when, as in the last two cases, the actor's seemed to made more of an effort not to sleepwalk through the picture.

We guess Jack Nicholson was busy. He was the last actor named as a contender for the key role of Branch Rickey in the developing Jackie Robinson biopic "42," but it looks like another aging superstar may step up to the plate.

So is Harrison Ford a gift or a curse these days? The actor hasn't had a hit film -- that didn't involve carrying a whip once again -- in over a decade. You'd have to go all the way back to 2000's "What Lies Beneath." Since then it's been a string of underperforming and just plain bad films in almost every genre imaginable, from heartwarming drama ("Extraordinary Measures"), genre thrillers ("Firewall"), comedy ("Morning Glory") and blockbuster tentpoles ("Cowboys & Aliens"). But that said, he is Indiana Jones and Han Solo, so that will always carry a certain amount of weight.
