Rumor (That I’m Personally Not Buying): ‘Star Wars Episode VII’ Release Date Could Be Delayed Due To Harrison Ford’s Injury?
It was previously believed that Harrison Ford had broken an ankle in an incident involving a door at Pinewood Studios on June 12th, yet according to Ford’s US publicist, his left leg was broken in the injury he suffered while shooting ‘Star Wars: Episode VII.’ “His surgery was successful and he will begin rehab shortly,” said Ford’s publicist Ina Treciokas in a statement last week. “He’s doing well and looks forward to returning to work.” At that time it was reported that Ford is expected to be sidelined for 8 weeks.
Providing us with more of an idea of the film’s plot and showcasing some of the lead cast, Universal and Blumhouse Productions have revealed this new trailer for the soon-to-be-released ‘The Purge’ sequel, ’The Purge: Anarchy.’ The film, which is scheduled for a July 18th release in the US and a July 25th bow in the UK, will see the return of writer-director James DeMonaco. The likes of Frank Grillo, Michael K. Williams, Carmen Ejogo, Zach Gilford, Kiele Sanchez and Keith Stanfield star in the horror-thriller.
Warner Bros has set loose this collection of clips from the upcoming road trip comedy ‘Tammy,’ which is lead by Melissa McCarthy (who also co-wrote the film with her husband and first-time director Ben Falcone) and Susan Sarandon as the titular Tammy and her grandmother, Pearl. Set for July 2nd in the US and July 4th in the UK, ‘Tammy’ also stars Allison Janney, Gary Cole, Mark Duplass, Toni Collette, Nat Faxon, Dan Aykroyd and Kathy Bates.
Tammy (McCarthy) is having a bad day. She’s totaled her clunker car, gotten fired from her thankless job at a greasy burger joint, and instead of finding comfort at home, finds her husband getting comfortable with the neighbor in her own house. It’s time to take her boom box and book it. The bad news is she’s broke and without wheels. The worse news is her grandma, Pearl (Sarandon), is her only option—with a car, cash, and an itch to see Niagara Falls. Not exactly the escape Tammy had in mind. But on the road, with grandma riding shot gun, it may be just what Tammy needs.
