'Dolphin Tale 2' trailer releasing

The final trailer for Dolphin Tale 2, continuing the adventures of Winter the tailless dolphin, was previewed for the media Thursday at Clearwater Marine Aquarium, the sequel's primary filming location. Our movie critic's review: The trailer is 21/2 minutes of adorable inspiration, a calling card for Tampa Bay tourism, and at least one key plot point revealed. Like the 2011 original, Dolphin Tale 2 is based on a true-life dolphin rescue, this time a bottlenose calf named Hope, whom Winter took under her fin. The trailer shows a fictional subtext with writer-director Charles Martin Smith portraying a wildlife official issuing an order to find sickly Winter a companion within 30 days, or else. (The "or else" isn't described but you know Harry Connick Jr. and Morgan Freeman won't allow that to happen.) The trailer also suggests a larger role for Rufus the mischievous pelican, who aquarium CEO David Yates said was the second-favorite critter of the original's fans after Winter herself. Dolphin Tale 2 opens nationwide on Sept. 12. The trailer will be shown before How to Train Your Dragon 2 this weekend, and will be posted online this evening. — Steve Persall, Times movie critic

Harrison Ford injured on 'Star Wars' set

Han Solo and the Millennium Falcon are not having a happy reunion. Harrison Ford was taken to a hospital Thursday after the door to the legendary spaceship fell and injured his ankle during filming (but not a stunt sequence; boo!) for the upcoming Episode VII, according to the Hollywood Reporter. Reports varied Thursday about the severity of the 71-year-old actor's injury, all the way from sprain to "severe fracture." "Harrison Ford sustained an ankle injury during filming today on the set of Star Wars: Episode VII," was all Disney said in a statement. "He was taken to a local hospital and is receiving care. Shooting will continue as planned while he recuperates." The yet-unamed (at least officially) Star Wars sequel directed by J.J. Abrams is being filmed at Pinewood Studios outside of London with a mix of original cast members (like Ford, Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher) and newcomers (like Lupita Nyong'o, Adam Driver and Andy Serkis). A local police report said a "garage door" injured a 71 year-old man but didn't name Ford, the Associated Press reported. We can only hope "Han Solo" has a speedy recovery. After all, he has to shoot first. — Caitlin E. O'Conner, Times staff writer
