    Harrison Ford is one of Hollywood’s most famous climate crusaders. He owns multiple extravagant homes, plus a reported 12 private planes, nine motorcycles and six gasoline-powered automobiles. His private plane collection includes two gas-guzzling corporate jets. Even though his opulent lifestyle depends upon copious amounts of fossil fuel energy, he speaks forcefully about his commitment to fight climate change. ... His multiple real-estate holdings include a 14,000 sq. ft. megamansion in the heart of one of the most exclusive areas of Los Angeles. He also owns a magnificent Jackson Hole, Wyoming estate, the plans for which he sketched out in...

    <p>Some 50 years ago, in 1964, 42 percent of Americans smoked cigarettes. Smoking in bars and offices was normal and cigarettes were given to soldiers as part of military rations. Half of American physicians smoked. Ads for cigarettes bombarded the American public. That year, the surgeon general released a report outlining the health risks of smoking. Two years later, only 40 percent of Americans said that they believed smoking was a major cause of cancer.</p>

    In a recent video to promote a World Government Summit in Dubai, legendary "Star Wars" actor Harrison Ford offered the usual litany of doom. "What does living in a 4-degrees-warmer world look like? Freshwater shortages. Higher greenhouse gas emissions. Unprecedented fires. Worldwide destruction. Is this the world we want?" Ford added: "Our planet, the only home we've got, is suffering. This is the bare truth. This is our reality. It's up to you and me to act now to face the greatest moral crisis of our time, to take action. It is time to make a difference." Leftists can make...

    The Polish filmmaker, still a fugitive due to a statutory rape case, will direct Oscar-winner Jean Dujardin in the film based on the Dreyfus Affair. Roman Polanski, who has spent four decades as the accused, will explore one of the most famous miscarriages of justice in his new film, J'Accuse. French producers Legende Films confirmed that Polanski, who fled the U.S. after admitting to the statutory rape of a 13-year-old girl in 1977, will begin shooting on the film in Paris later this year.2018 by Scott Roxborough

    To borrow one of Han Solo's lines from Star Wars: The Force Awakens, "That's not how the Force works!" It's an apt way to sum up the troubled performance of Solo: A Star Wars Story. In one of the biggest box-office surprises in recent times, Solo is badly underperforming and will become the first of the Star Wars movies made by Disney and Lucasfilm to lose money. Wall Street analyst Barton Crockett says Solo will lose more than $50 million. Industry financing souces, however, say that figure could come in at $80 million or higher, although no one knows the...

    Veteran Hollywood film director Steven Spielberg says the next star of one of his most iconic characters, Indiana Jones, should be played by a woman. Speaking to The Sun as his latest film Ready Player One hits the cinemas, Spielberg said that although it would risk anger from longtime fans of the Indiana Jones franchise, it is time the explorer took on “a different form.” “We’d have to change the name from Jones to Joan,” he said. “And there would be nothing wrong with that.” Ford, 75, first played Indiana Jones in 1981’s Raiders of the Lost Ark and reprised...

    Amid controversy over Uma Thurman’s near-fatal “Kill Bill” stunt, a 15-year-old interview with Quentin Tarantino went viral online Monday. The 2003 Howard Stern interview included an almost eight-minute defense of Roman Polanski by the famous director. “He didn’t rape a 13-year-old. It was statutory rape. It’s not the same thing. He had sex with a minor. That’s not rape. To me, when you use the word rape, you’re talking about violent, throwing them down...it’s like one of the most violent crimes in the world,” Tarantino told the shock jock. “You can’t throw the word ‘rape’ around. It’s like throwing the...

    Former MLB pitcher Roy 'Doc' Halladay has been killed after his plane crashed in the Gulf of Mexico. Halladay, 40, was a keen pilot whose Twitter feed includes several references to his love of flying - including his brand new ICON MY2018 A5 plane, which was seen floating upside down in shallow water on Tuesday. But Halladay will be best known for playing for the Toronto Blue Jays and Philadelphia Phillies from 1998-2013, and for being one of just six MLB pitchers to win the Cy Young award for both American and International play.

    4th Update, Friday 11:47PM: What a fascinating business. This weekend a $35 million-budgeted horror movie in its fifth frame will gross close to nine times its production cost with a running domestic B.O. total of $304.6M. At the same time, a $155M-plus attempt to reboot a cult sci-fi franchise may not even make it to $100M by the end of its domestic theatrical cycle. We are, of course, comparing New Line/Warner Bros.’ It and Alcon Entertainment/Sony’s Blade Runner 2049, and the latter is now looking at a three-day weekend of $36.5M, an awful start for this brilliantly crafted cinematic opus...

    Actor Harrison Ford was involved in a potentially serious incident Monday in California as he was piloting his private plane, a single-engine Husky, NBC News has learned. Ford, an experienced pilot who collects vintage planes, had been instructed to land on runway 20-L at John Wayne Airport in Orange County, California, but mistakenly aimed for a taxiway, instead. His plane passed over the top of an American Airlines 737 carrying 110 passengers and a six-person crew.

    SANTA ANA, Calif. -- Actor Harrison Ford was involved in an aviation incident at John Wayne Airport in which he flew over a passenger airliner and landed in the wrong location. The actor was cleared to land on a runway at John Wayne and correctly read back the instructions. Instead, his single-engine Aviat Husky landed on a taxiway that sits parallel to the runway and flew above a Boeing 737 on the ground. The American Airlines 737, with 110 passengers and six crew onboard, was bound for Dallas-Ft. Worth as it sat at the intersection of two taxiways. The passenger...

    The December 18 release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens may be the most anticipated in film history. The film will feature the return of characters not seen onscreen since 1983. Among those will be smuggler and scruffy-looking scoundrel Han Solo, portrayed by the legendary Harrison Ford.Promoting the film in an Australian interview, Ford plotted an odd course toward a different sort of fantasy, climate change hysteria. From ABC News Online: The veteran star of the Indiana Jones and Star Wars franchises did not mince words when pointing out his disdain for arguments between leaders and countries. "People think...

    My neighbor who flies out of Van Nuys and Santa Monica told me that he had a conversation with the operators of a fuel truck at Santa Monica airport recently in which the fuel truck operators said that for some reason they were not asked to fill up Harrison Ford's vintage airplane with fuel which they usually do before he uses the plane and that Ford just hopped aboard the plane without checking it out before taking off. I have no way of verifying this, but it apparently the most recent news coverage suggested engine failure, but now explanation as...
