Legendary actor Harrison Ford is set to play Indiana Jones yet again in fifth Indiana Jones movie scheduled for July 2021. But who will take over once Ford is ready to step away from the role?

No one, if Ford has his way. In an appearance on The Today Show, Ford was asked directly who he would like to see take over when he's done playing the archaeologist-adventurter.

He gave a wonderful response: "Nobody is going to be Indiana Jones, don't you get it? I'm Indiana Jones," Ford told host Craig Melvin with a laugh. "When I'm gone, he's gone. It's easy."

about X hours ago from

The latest North American weekend box office numbers are in, and Disney's newest live-action remake, Aladdin, won the weekend with $86.1 million. The figure is expected to grow to around $105 million when Monday's Memorial Day numbers come in.

Aladdin also opened in overseas markets this weekend, it made $121 million for the three-day period from international screens to push the movie's total global box office haul to $207.1 million after just one weekend.

Aladdin didn't get the strongest reviews from professional critics, but actual audiences loved it. The movie picked up a near-perfect A CinemaScore rating. CinemaScore is a poll of audiences who saw a movie, and it is not unusual for the average critic score to vary from what audiences thought of a film, and this also appears to be the case for Aladdin. A strong CinemaScore rating also suggests that Aladdin will continue to perform well in Week 2 and beyond because of positive word-of-mouth.

about X hours ago from

The Overwatch League has lost its commissioner. Nate Nanzer, the OWL's first-ever commissioner who led the eSports organisation from the ground up, has left Blizzard.

He left Blizzard to join Epic Games where he will head up the developer's eSports and competitive gaming efforts for the massively popular battle royale game Fortnite. Needless to say, he is a huge get for Epic, as Nanzer was instrumental in the creation of the OWL.

In a Twitter thread, Nanzer said leaving Blizzard was the "toughest decision" of his entire life "because it means I won't get to work with the best staff, players, teams, owners, partners, and fans in eSports anymore." Nanzer said he is proud of what the OWL has achieved in its early days.

"Gaming Disorder" Is A Disease, World Health Organization Decides; Industry Responds

about X hours ago from

The World Health Organization, the public health division of the United Nations, has officially added "gaming disorder" to its registry of officially recognized diseases. This happened over the weekend when the WHO officially adopted the 11th revision of its International Statistical Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems (ICD-11). All 194 members of the WHO voted unanimously to adopt the revision.

According to the WHO, "gaming disorder" is characterized by a "pattern of persistent or recurrent gaming behaviour" online or offline. The official description goes on to say that gaming disorders can include the following: "1) impaired control over gaming (e.g., onset, frequency, intensity, duration, termination, context); 2) increasing priority given to gaming to the extent that gaming takes precedence over other life interests and daily activities; and 3) continuation or escalation of gaming despite the occurrence of negative consequences."

People who are deemed to have the "gaming disorder" run the risk of "significant impairment" to their personal, family, social, education, and occupational lives, according to the WHO. The description goes on to say that "gaming disorder" can be a continuous condition or it can be episodic in nature. For it to be suggested that a person has "gaming disorder," they would display these behaviour patterns for a year or longer.
