  • Hero is a word we hear often in sports, but heroism is not always about achievements on the field of play. "42" tells the story of two men-the great Jackie Robinson and legendary Brooklyn Dodgers GM Branch Rickey-whose brave stand against prejudice forever changed the world by changing the game of baseball. 

    In 1946, Branch Rickey (Harrison Ford) put himself at the forefront of history when he signed Jackie Robinson (Chadwick Boseman) to the team, breaking Major League Baseball's infamous color line. But the deal also put both Robinson and Rickey in the firing line of the public, the press and even other players. Facing unabashed racism from every side, Robinson was forced to demonstrate tremendous courage and restraint by not reacting in kind, knowing that any incident could destroy his and Rickey's hopes. Instead, Number 42 let his talent on the field do the talking-ultimately winning over fans and his teammates, silencing his critics, and paving the way for others to follow.

  • Harrison Ford and Tommy Lee Jones race through this breathless manhunt movie inspired by one classic TV series and which in turn inspired yet another. Ford is prison escapee Dr. Richard Kimble, a Chicago surgeon falsely convicted of killing his wife and determined to prove his innocence by leading his pursuers to the one-armed man who committed the crime. 

    Jones (the 1993 Academy Award®, Golden Globe and Los Angeles Film Critics Award winner as Best Supporting Actor) is Sam Gerard, an unrelenting bloodhound of a US marshal. They are hunted and hunter. And as directed by Andrew Davis (Under Siege), their nonstop chase has one exhilarating speed: all-out.

  • Presumed Innocent is a dramatic whodunit, a sexy thriller and a powerful courtroom drama dripping with suspense and intrigue. Harrison Ford plays a deputy prosecutor engaged in an obsessive affair with a co-worker (Greta Scacchi), who is murdered. 

    Soon after, he’s accused of the crime and his fight to clear his name becomes a whirlpool of lies and hidden passions. Brian Dennehy, Bonnie Bedelia, Raul Julia and Paul Winfield co-star under the crackling direction of Alan J. Pakula (The Pelican Brief, The Devil’s Own). Master of suspense Pakula uses Scott Turow’s best seller to examine the American legal system – discovering the sword of justice is double-edged.

  • Harrison Ford and filmmaker Roman Polanski count thrillers among their best work. Frantic teams, USA Today’s Mike Clark wrote, “an imaginatively cast superstar and the greatest living suspense director in fine form.” Ford plays an American doctor whose wife (Betty Buckley) suddenly vanishes in Paris. 

    To find her, he navigates a puzzling web of language, locale, laissez-faire cops, triplicate-form bureaucrats and a defiant, mysterious waif (Emmanuelle Seigner) who knows more than she tells. “It is the spirit of Hitchcock that reigns here” (Michael Wilmington, Los Angeles Times). And the consummate skill of Polanski and Ford that’s on dazzling display.

  • Visually spectacular, intensely action-packed and powerfully prophetic since its debut, Blade Runner returns in Ridley Scott’s definitive Final Cut, including extended scenes and never-before-seen special effects. 

    In a signature role as 21st-century detective Rick Deckard, Harrison Ford brings his masculine yet- vulnerable presence to this stylish noir thriller. In a future of high-tech possibility soured by urban and social decay, Deckard hunts for fugitive, murderous replicants – and is drawn to a mysterious woman whose secrets may undermine his soul.
