Movie News Today

Apologies to any of you who tried to check out The Soap Box Office at the end of last week and couldn't. After repeated issues, I made the switch to Google Chrome and apparently in the process my privacy settings got reset. Thanks for sticking around.

Harrison Ford will play Wyatt Earp in "Black Hats" which is based upon a graphic novel by the author of "Road to Perdition." Oh, how I root for Ford to be relevant again. Sounds very interesting.

Steven Spielberg has confirmed that "Jurassic Park 4" is in the works and will see theaters in the next couple of years. Look, I'll readily admit that the last two "Park" films were disappointing and borderline awful, respectively. But the original is one of my all time favorite action movies and it holds up STUNNINGLY well for being 18 years old. Count me in.

Movie Muse asks, will any franchise ever top "Harry Potter" at the box office?

Fandango Groovers continues his series on watching the "Potter" series for the first time. Check out his look at "The Chamber of Secrets."
