Cinemaps: An Atlas of 35 Great Movies

Cinemaps: An Atlas of 35 Great Movies
Hardcover | Kindle
By Andrew DeGraff (Illustrations), A.D. Jameson (Essays)
Publisher: Quirk Books
Release date: October 24, 2017

In the Introduction to his new book Cinemaps: An Atlas of 35 Great Movies, illustrator Andrew DeGraff (Plotted: A Literary Atlas) accurately describes how the children of the baby boomers grew up repeatedly watching films in the 70s and 80s, dissecting every second, learning dialogue, and analyzing all aspects. That’s a spot-on assessment of that generation, known as Generation X — of which I am one, as is DeGraff. Our generation grew up obsessed with movies at a time when there was no such thing as the Internet and Netflix where films are readily available at the touch of a button, so we really clung on to whatever we could access. That’s why an offering like Cinemaps, which visually delves into the minute details of all our favorite films, is such a treasure.

George Lucas Isn’t Involved With ‘Indiana Jones 5’ Script, Per Screenwriter

Indiana Jones

Earlier this year, Disney confirmed they would be releasing Indiana Jones 5 in 2019. The film will be directed by Steven Spielberg, with Harrison Ford reprising the title role he’s been playing since 1981. Given how well the actor’s return to playing Han Solo in Star Wars: The Force Awakens was received, it only made sense that we get to see Ford play Dr. Jones once more.

But like the Star Wars films, some are worried that George Lucas will have some influence on the creative direction of the franchise. However, we might not have to worry about that any longer. According to David Koepp, Lucas might not be as involved as we originally thought. Check out what screenwriter Koepp had to say here below.

Indiana Jones 5 Confirmed

Disney has just announced that Steven Spielberg and Harrison Ford will reunite for Indiana Jones 5, which has been scheduled for release on July 19, 2019.

The project has yet to be titled, but you can be sure it will serve as some sort of context to the artifact or location in the film. All the major players will be involved on the project, including producers Kathleen Kennedy and Frank Marshall. More on the story below.

An ‘Indiana Jones’ Reboot Won’t Include An Indy Recast

Indiana Jones

When Disney purchased Lucasfilm for $4 billion, most assumed that the studio would be focusing on the Star Wars franchise. But along with acquiring the rights to Star Wars, they also got the rights to the Indiana Jones films. Recent news has focused mostly on the release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, other sequels, and their spinoffs. So it looked like Disney was putting Indiana Jones on the backburner. Rumors that Chris Pratt would play as Dr. Jones started to circulate earlier this year, but the actor said it probably wouldn’t happen because his action-film plate is pretty full. Even Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy admitted that they weren’t ready to release an Indiana Jones 5 because they didn’t have the right story yet.

However, during the Bridge of Spies press tour, director Steven Spielberg would probably do an Indiana Jones 5 with Harrison Ford, indicating that the role would probably not be recasted. Now, producer Frank Marshall is sharing that sentiment as he confirms that a recasting won’t happen. More on the story below.

Indiana Jones Crystal Skull Steven Spielberg Harrison Ford

Dreamworks’ Bridge Of Spies hits theaters this weekend, and director Steven Spielberg is on the press tour to help promote the film. While he could discuss Bridge and any other project he’s working — like BFG, or Ready Player One — he chose a different kind of film to talk about. During one of his interviews, Spielberg brought up Indiana Jones 5, and that he might direct it with plans to have Harrison Ford reprise his role at the title character.

More on the story below.

Chris Pratt Talks ‘Indiana Jones’ Rumors; Says ‘Ghostbusters’ Rumor Is BS

Chris Pratt

It’s easy to see why Chris Pratt may be attached to or is rumored to be attached to multiple action adventure films across the board. He is funny, charming, and can put up a fight. Which is why people can see him as the new Indiana Jones or why he’s been rumored to be appearing alongside Channing Tatum in the male Ghostbusters reboot.

With Jurassic World just weeks away from release, you can expect journalists to ask about his involvement in either of the projects during the press junket tour. But Pratt seems to have that handled by addressing any and all rumors about projects that seem to be circling him, when it clearly should be the other way around. Short answer, a lot of dreams are about to be shattered. More below.

The Disney Company is on fire right now. In recent years they’ve procured the rights to the Marvel movies (which has proved profitable again and again, including with the latest blockbuster Avengers: Age of Ultron‘s success at the box office last weekend) and the eagerly anticipated return of the Star Wars franchise to theaters. But in the process of assimilating Lucasfilm, Disney also finds themselves in possession of another of George Lucas‘s precious characters, Dr. Henry “Indiana” Jones Junior, better known simply as Indiana Jones, the famous archaeologist and adventurer.

Recently in an interview with Vanity Fair magazine, Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy discussed what the status of a new Indiana Jones movie is currently.

Chris Pratt in Jurassic World

Chris Pratt attended the Oscars ceremony in Hollywood, CA, last night where MTV’s Josh Horowitz spoke to the Guardians Of The Galaxy star on the Red Carpet about all those rumors about him being the next Indiana Jones. Last month, news broke that Disney was looking to reboot the Indiana Jones film franchise and wanted Pratt to take on the role as the titular adventurer. And just a few days ago, new reports surfaced that long-time Indiana Jones filmmaker Steven Spielberg is interested in directing Pratt in the reboot (Pratt is in his Jurassic World, coming to theaters this June).

So, what did Pratt have to say about all this Indiana Jones business? Well, unlike the other stars Horowitz grabbed a few minutes with on the Red Carpet, the actor didn’t shy away from the question.

Check out the short video interview here below.

Steven Spielberg hopes to direct the planned Indiana Jones reboot, which could see Jurassic World’s Chris Pratt star as the titular action-adventurer, according to Deadline.

Back in January, news broke that Disney was planning to reboot the franchise and wanted the Guardians Of The Galaxy star to take up the mantle of Indiana Jones, the adventuring archaeologist made famous by Harrison Ford, who played the character on the big-screen in four films starting with 1981’s Raiders Of The Lost Ark.

Now that they’ve kicked off the continuing adventures of Star Wars, it looks like Disney is now turning their attention to another one of its newest acquisitions – the Indiana Jones franchise, which they bought the rights to from Paramount in 2013.

And who will they center the franchise on now? Not Shia LaBeouf, who was once tapped to take up the mantle after his appearance in the last film, 2008’s Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull (he apologized in 2010 for not doing the role of Indy’s new sidekick and heir apparent justice).

Deadline reports that Disney wants Guardians Of The Galaxy star Chris Pratt to take over as Indiana Jones, the adventuring archaeologist brought to life on the big screen and made famous by Harrison Ford.
