Infrequent ad star Harrison Ford, whom we last saw codgering his way through a game of Uncharted 3, has made his commercial comeback in a new spot for British subscription service Sky Movies.
Chewbacca had a wife and kids. Han and Chewie are on their way to visit the Wookie planet for a big holiday. There's a reason George Lucas apparently doesn't like the Star Wars Holiday Special from 1978.
Once the burden of acknowledging the grave importance of its subject matter has been palliated by a series of high-tensile, all-star cameos (Oprah Winfrey, Robin Williams, Jane Fonda), there are two main takeaways from the trailer for the "inspired by a true" story of a black butler working at the White House through times of social upheaval.
Here is Harrison Ford, looking about 1,000 years old—and acting like it, too—in a weird new Japanese commercial for the action video game Uncharted 3. Ford may be unaware that the Internet allows people around the world to watch Japanese commercials now. Having gotten Han Solo involved, the ad's producers seem perfectly happy letting him sit there grunting stupidly and holding the controller. And if you thought this was awkward, there's a whole seven-minute behind-the-scenes video after the jump. Aren't there any sarlaccs in Japan they could have thrown him into? brightcove.createExperiences();
