The Jurassic World Teaser Trailer Is Here

23 hours ago | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Jurassic World, the fourth installment of the Jurassic Park series is here — a series so heavily encased in nostalgia it may as well be a mosquito trapped in amber. The dinosaurs are coming, you guys! And this time around there's going to be a not-fat Chris Pratt and Ron Howard's daughter Bryce Dallas Howard! It's just a teaser, so all you'll get is a 15-second glimpse and a super-slowed down piano version of John Williams' sweeping score. The actual trailer drops Thursday. The movie won't come until June 12, 2015, which is like a whole Mesozoic era away. »

Stephen King’s The Stand Will Have Four Films!

21 November 2014 7:21 AM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Back in October, Stephen King was talking about director Josh Boone’s vision of The Stand, and how much he liked his take. He also teased that the movie would be told in a very innovative way and that it might end up being more than one film. 

Well, Boone, who directed The Fault in Our Stars, confirmed that in an interview with Kevin Smith on his Hollywood Babble-On Podcast. It seems like Warner Bros. is definitely planning something big. While talking about the film and how it all came together, the director revealed that the studio is looking at adapting this book into four films, which is insanely awesome!

I’m surprised WB would do that, especially since they weren’t even willing to give Ron Howard's The Gunslinger adaptation a trilogy of films. But here’s Boone’s explanation of how this epic film project fell into place. »

Criterion Collection: It Happened One Night | Blu-ray Review

18 November 2014 9:00 AM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Winner of five Oscars, Frank Capra’s It Happened One Night remains an outstanding entertainment, and a touchstone of Hollywood’s most enduring cinematic genre: the Romantic Comedy. Filled with naughty, cloying sexuality and a lovable slate of archetypal characters, the film encapsulated the aspirations and desperations of 1930s America, even while evoking giggles of delight from a battered audience facing a dark and uncertain future. While the Great Depression is never addressed directly, the pressures of those days infuse every aspect of It Happened One Night, from its depiction of pampered, frivolous one per-centers to its array of dodgy conmen, hapless working stiffs and penniless drifters. The fact that love continued to find a way through the world’s political and economic maelstroms was a comforting notion in 1934; a notion perfectly suited to Capra’s trademark optimistic populism.

The film’s stagebound, talky exposition scene may feel awkward at first, »

It Was Cold When Ben Affleck Shot That Gone Girl Shower Scene

15 November 2014 1:56 PM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

At the Hollywood Film Awards (don't worry, no one else watched it either), Ben Affleck got onstage to accept Hollywood Film on behalf of Gone Girl: "In a true Hollywood Film Award moment, Ron and I just met at the urinal," he said, referring to presenter Ron Howard. "Nice to see you, Ron." (We can now add Ron Howard to the list of men who have seen Ben Affleck's penis.)The peen mentions don't stop there! He also thanked director David Fincher for showing America his junk. Fincher had told him, "Listen, if we tilt down, we'll never go far enough to see anything." Obviously he was lying, and moreover, Fincher kept the set nice and frosty. "I'd like to thank you for keeping the set cool," said Affleck. "If you're going to have one chance for America to see your junk, you want it to be cold. It's »

The 18th annual Hollywood Film Awards kicked off awards season Friday night, and for the first time ever, the event was broadcasted live on CBS.

Robert Downey Jr. kicked off the evening, presenting the Hollywood Supporting Actor Award award to his The Judge co-star Robert Duvall.

"There’s never been anyone better and there likely never will be," Downey said of Duvall, who was equally effusive about his co-star.

"The reason I took the project mainly is because of Robert Downey Jr," Duvall praised. "We spent many good times together."
