We've all had disappointments in life — missing that free throw in the state semis, getting stood up at the homecoming dance, that one time that puppy took a whiz in your purse — but for most of us, there's never been anything as disappointing as "Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull."

If you have trouble understanding me, it's because I've been breathing into a paper bag for almost two weeks. I have lesions up and down my arms from all the pinches I've applied to myself. I really and truly can't believe we're getting another "Star Wars."
Just as I was coming around some news items of not-pure-ridiculousness surfaced that key members of the classic cast, namely Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher and, gasp, Harrison Ford were all keen or at least open to the concept of returning to their far, far away roles from a long time ago. Get More »
When news broke last week that Disney is buying Lucasfilm and will be putting out a third "Star Wars" trilogy, reaction was mixed. And a big reason for that mixed reaction was the fact that fans were sure at least one original cast member wouldn't have anything to do with a return to "Star Wars:" Harrison Ford, who has long been dismissive of the role of Han Solo.
Well, if the news that there would be a new "Star Wars" trilogy wasn't shock enough, here's something that will really blow your mind: According to Entertainment Weekly, Ford is actually on board with reprising his role as Han Solo and is considering a return for "Episode VII." Holy smokes. Get More »
All of the week's hot casting news in one fell swoop ...
• John Cusack is a triple threat this week! In just the past few days he's scored roles in the legal drama "Due Process," the Stephen King adaptation "Cell" (Cusack's second King adventure, following "1408") and Roger Avary's "Duel"-type thriller, "Airspace."
• Hollywood loves it when a one-night stand leads to true love (and, often, a baby ... and not always in that order). Deadline reports that Amanda Seyfried and Patrick Dempsey will be playing unexpectedly expecting parents in "Wonderful Tonight," a romantic comedy that we hope gets a new title sooner rather than later (sorry, Mr. Clapton, but do you really need the extra money?).

This week: Before he became an actor, Channing Tatum worked as a male stripper, which inspired Steven Soderbergh to direct "Magic Mike," a behind-the-scenes look at a troupe of male strippers taking it off nightly at a club in Florida.
Also new this week is the self-explanatory horror thriller "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter," the sweet-natured apocalyptic romance "Seeking a Friend for the End of the World" and a definitive anniversary edition of "Blade Runner" on Blu-ray. Get More »
When it comes to sports icons, Jackie Robinson is pretty much at the top of the list. That's because Robinson, who broke baseball's color barrier in 1947, didn't just change sports, he changed American society. So does the brand new trailer for "42" do justice to the man who helped bring justice to our national pastime? Does it, to use a familiar sports cliche, hit a home run?
Hey, man, this is Jackie Robinson. The trailer steals home.
And it does it in style. Get More »
This week: Joss Whedon reinvigorates the horror genre with the shockingly clever "The Cabin in the Woods," starring a pre-Thor Chris Hemsworth.

Thirty-one years ago, Marion, Sallah, Marcus, Belloq and a bespectacled college professor named Indiana Jones went searching for the biblical MacGuffin known as the Ark of the Covenant and unearthed one of the most popular movies of all-time.
Now you and perhaps those kids you didn't have (or were) the first time you saw it can experience the face-melting awesomeness of "Raiders of the Lost Ark" in glorious IMAX, bigger and better than ever before, and Yahoo! Movies has the trailer that will lead you right to the loot in September. Get More »
Fans of 1980s action cinema are eagerly awaiting this week's release of "The Expendables 2" thanks to its all star cast, which includes Chuck Norris, Sylvester Stallone, Bruce Willis, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Dolph Lundgren and Jean-Claude Van Damme. So what could they possibly do to top that for "The Expendables 3?"
How about giving fans of '70s action cinema a blast from the past with Clint Eastwood and Harrison Ford?
