LAMB Review 'Weirdly Special Movie'

Harrison Ford Returns To Space In Ender's Game

After nearly three decades, Harrison Ford may finally be returning to where he truly belongs… outer space.

Ford became one of the most popular stars in the world thanks to the space opera known as "Star Wars," but, after completing his tour of duty with the Rebel Alliance in 1983, he hung up Han Solo's pistol belt and hasn't been behind the wheel of a spaceship since.

Now Variety has intercepted a transmission that says Ford may be up for the adult lead of Colonel Hyrum Graff opposite a now-confirmed 14-year-old Asa Butterfield ("Hugo") in the hotly anticipated "Ender's Game."

Essentially "Harry Potter" meets "Full Metal Jacket" in space, the "Ender" series of novels by Orson Scott Card follow the pint-sized Napoleon named Ender as he fights his way through other child soldiers in a futuristic Battle School under the tutelage of Graff. Casting Ford as this tenured professor of alien ass kicking would be ideal, as he has proved in the past that no one can ground science fiction with more gruff gravitas than him.

The actor has made a subtle inroad back to the genre that defined him in the last few years, with both "Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull" as well as "Cowboys & Aliens" combining adventure tropes with sci-fi. "Ender" is the real deal, though, with epic star battles and Zero-G fighting units and everything.

Of course Ford is not the only name on "Wolverine" director Gavin Hood's wishlist, having already gotten a "no thanks" from Viggo Mortensen to command training at the International Fleet boys' military academy. Whether we'll get to see the "Blade Runner" actor fire a laser gun again in our time remains a hopeful thought.

Sex Tape Review: Overly Sexual, Rude, Vulgar, and Absolutely Hilarious

The raunchy Sex Tape will divide audiences and critics, but who cares? Sex Tape suggests a growing practice among loving partners: that of making a raunchy testament of their escapades for posterity. But what happens when that evidence gets seen by friends, neighbors, and even the mailman? This is the plot that pits Jay (Jason Segel) and Annie (Cameron Diaz) in an effort to secure every iPad gift Jay has given, his record company playlists being the envy of the recipients, but which has also inadvertently spread the video to every device. The reason for the act - termed in the movie as pulling "the full Lincoln " for its three-hour length - stems from the couple's non-existent social life, brought on by the constant demands of their children. The couple has a lot to lose: a burgeoning business relationship between Annie and Hank (Rob Lowe) could end if the iPad she's given to Hank exposes the video, and so the couple sets out to reclaim and wipe the incrim
