Jurassic World: New Featurette Welcomes You to the Park with Tons of New Footage

25 May 2015 3:50 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Universal Pictures has released a new Jurassic World featurette, and it's packed with nostalgia and new footage. Featuring director Colin Trevorrow (Safety Not Guaranteed) and executive producer Steven Spielberg, the new featurette celebrates the fully operational iteration of John Hammond’s park, where the rides are packed and the park is thriving. The featurette also celebrates the original film, following the recent marketing trend to evoke nostalgia with Richard Attenborough voiceovers and familiar musical cues. "To see Jurassic World come to life is like seeing Jurassic Park come true," says Spielberg, and that's main reason I'm so excited to see Jurassic World when it hits theaters - we finally get to see Hammond's vision come true, and all the dinosaur driven chaos that is bound to come with it. The film opens in 3D on June 12th, and stars Chris PrattBryce Dallas HowardNick RobinsonTy Simpkins, Vincent D’Onofrio, »

Richard Attenborough narrates exciting new Jurassic World trailer

19 May 2015 8:41 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

The late Richard Attenborough's character John Hammond will be sorely missed in the upcoming Jurassic Park sequel, but his voice can be heard in the latest trailer.

Hammond's voice is used in the new Jurassic World teaser, bringing the franchise full-circle as he welcomes visitors to his visionary park.

Attenborough's dialogue from the first film has been used for the trailer, along with a cleverly-edited "world" when saying: "Welcome to Jurassic World."

A statue of entrepreneur John Hammond has already been spotted in earlier trailers for the film.

Jurassic World sees Hammond's dream of a dinosaur park realised, thanks to a huge corporation that has launched the project, with Bryce Dallas Howard's Claire in charge of the business side of things. »

Richard Attenborough's John Hammond Narrates New Jurassic World Teaser

19 May 2015 4:57 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

The recent marketing material for the upcoming dino-fourquel Jurassic World has been leaning heavily on the love fans have for the franchise's first outing, Jurassic Park. Now there's more, and this time, Richard Attenborough is obliquely involved. With John Hammond's voiceover echoing around the latest teaser, this is a goosebump-enducing hybrid of both the older film and the new.It began as a dream. On June 12, the park is finally open.

Incidentally, a statue of John Hammond is in the new Jurassic World, as spotted earlier trailers. »

The last few months have seen us spoilt with trailers and posters galore and today is no exception as we have another teaser to enjoy.

Watch: John Hammond Narrates Another New 'Jurassic World' Spot

18 May 2015 7:32 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"I own an island off the coast of Costa Rica..." With just a few more weeks left until Jurassic World hits theaters in June, Universal has started unloading TV spots left and right. One of the latest ones features a John Hammond (originally played by Richard Attenborough) voice-over, borrowing sound clips from the original Jurassic Park. They're really playing up that connection to the original, and pushing with "The Park Is Open" as the big tagline on every TV spot. Oddly, at one point they have Hammond to say "Welcome to Jurassic World!" So maybe they had someone else do his voice just for that part... Anyway, the rest of the footage is starting to look really good. Chris Pratt and those rapors! I am so ready for this. Bring on dinos. Here's the latest spot for Colin Trevorrow's Jurassic World with John Hammond, from @JurassicPark: It began as a dream. »

Time Machine: Spielberg and Daughter (with 'Indiana Jones' Actress Capshaw) on Oscars Red Carpet

14 May 2015 2:02 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Steven Spielberg and daughter Destry Spielberg on the Oscars' Red Carpet Steven Spielberg and daughter Destry Steven Spielberg and daughter Destry Spielberg arrive at the 83rd Academy Awards, held on Feb. 27 at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood. Spielberg has taken home two Best Director Oscars: Schindler's List (1993) and Saving Private Ryan (1998). Schindler's List also won Best Picture, but Saving Private Ryan lost to John Madden's Miramax-distributed Shakespeare in Love. There was quite a bit of animosity at the time, as some felt that Miramax, owned by brothers Bob and Harvey Weinstein, overdid its Oscar campaigning – while still managing to sway enough Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences members to vote for its film. Somewhat ironically, at the 2011 Academy Awards ceremony Steven Spielberg presented the Best Picture Award to The King's Speech. Toplining Colin Firth, Helena Bonham Carter, Geoffrey Rush, Guy Pearce, and Claire Bloom, this British production was »

Jurassic World Will Be A Direct Sequel To Jurassic Park, Not Instalments Two And Three

29 April 2015 3:28 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

As movie-going audiences brace themselves for a return to Isla Nubar on June 12th, director Colin Trevorrow has been discussing the highly anticipated franchise re-launch with Yahoo. Amid a surge of reboots and cohesive movie universes, fans are more keen than ever to understand exactly where new chapters of beloved stories fit in with the overall narrative, and Trevorrow has confirmed his intention to make Jurassic World a direct sequel to the very first movie in that franchise – 1993’s Jurassic Park.

Though Jurassic World does not ignore the movies that followed – 1997’s The Lost World: Jurassic Park and 2001’s Jurassic Park III – it does essentially change their status from sequels to spin-offs, since they both take place on Isla Sorna, or ‘Site B’. Trevorrow’s film is the first to take us back to the original park which, 20 years on, has been re-developed and re-opened as a world-class tourist destination, »

25 underrated 1990s movie soundtracks

28 April 2015 3:02 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

From Muppet Treasure Island to Speed, we take a look at the 90s soundtracks that deserve another listen...

Ah, the 1990s. The decade that brought us The Lion King. Titanic. Quentin Tarantino. That wordless bathroom scene in Baz Luhrmann's Romeo + Juliet. Angelo Badalamenti's Twin Peaks. Duel of the Fates from Star Wars: The Phantom Menace. In the Mood for Love.

It was a good 10 years for film music, no doubt.

But scratch the surface of 1991 through 1999 and there are tons of good scores ready to spring a surprise on your ears. Some were attached to sorely underrated movies, others were overshadowed by wildly successful ones, and some have simply been forgotten in the passage of time.

Here, in no particular order, are the top 25 underappreciated film soundtracks from the 1990s.

1. Chaplin - John Barry

Okay, let's start with a big one. Richard Attenborough. Robert Downey Jr. John Barry. »

Chris Pratt escapes the jaws of an Indominus Rex in new Jurassic World clip

24 April 2015 7:57 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Chris Pratt has featured in a new high-octane clip from Jurassic World.

Pratt's character Owen Grady is seen making a quick getaway from an Indominus Rex, a genetically-engineered dinosaur at the park.

It is a much more exciting glimpse of Colin Trevorrow's upcoming sequel than the previous clip, which was criticised by Joss Whedon for being "70s-era sexist".

The Jurassic Park sequel casts the Guardians of the Galaxy star in the lead role, with Bryce Dallas Howard, Judy Greer, Jake Johnson, Omar Sy, Nick Robinson and Ty Simpkins among the supporting cast.

The film takes place 22 years after the events of Jurassic Park, with the dinosaur theme park originally envisioned by John Hammond (Richard Attenborough) now fully operational.

Jurassic World opens at cinemas on June 11. Watch a trailer below: »

Universal has been teasing a new Jurassic World trailer for a few days now and this morning it has arrived and this time we're getting an even greater look at what the first Jurassic Park film in 14 years... Was it worth the waitc Set 22 years after the events of Jurassic Park, Isla Nublar now features a fully functioning dinosaur theme park, Jurassic World, as originally envisioned by John Hammond (Richard Attenborough). And while that's the only real synopsis we've been given, but we know Bryce Dallas Howard plays Claire Dearing, the operations manager at the new Jurassic Park where they've created a new species of dinosaur, the Indominus Rex, which appears as if it is just a big T-Rex and likely to raise some hell, though the dinosaur in the new poster below, the Mosasaurus about to chomp down on a Great White, doesn't exactly look peaceful.

Actors-turned-directors: The good, the bad and the unwatchable

11 April 2015 1:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

This month Alan Rickman's A Little Chaos, Ryan Gosling's Lost River and Russell Crowe's The Water Diviner see these performers make the dizzying leap from actor to director. But in which of their colleagues' footsteps might they follow?

We take a look at six different categories of actor-turned-directors.

The career-changers

Too handsome to be a supporting actor, and lacking the gravitas of a major star, Ben Affleck looked to be heading towards Kilmer-ville before he released Gone Baby Gone, a dark Dennis Lehane thriller he co-wrote and directed, with brother Casey taking the lead. Follow-up The Town proved solid, but his next effort, Argo, was a surprise Best Picture winner. The fact Affleck didn't receive a Director nomination suggests he's not yet been forgiven for the likes of Gigli, but the forthcoming Lehane adaptation Live By Night should fix that.

Interview: Director Richard Raymond on the Passion of ‘Desert Dancer’

9 April 2015 12:04 PM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – What does anyone understand about regimes outside their political or moral universe? The setting is Iran, the time is during their controversial 2009 elections and the medium is dance as expression. Combining those elements was the challenge for director Richard Raymond, in his debut film “Desert Dancer.”

The film creates an allegory, using dance as a symbol for breaking free of government oppression, and is based on the true story of Afshin Ghaffarian, portrayed by Reece Ritchie. Like the 2014 film “Rosewater,” it uses the 2009 elections in Iran as a backdrop, and the constant vigilance of the “morality police” as a arbiter. Director Richard Raymond and screenwriter Jon Croker tell a simple story, but punctuate that story with two vital dance numbers, that say more about the events than the events themselves.

A New Attraction is Killing for Sport in New 'Jurassic World' Trailer

30 March 2015 8:14 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

This new Jurassic World movie is going to be an interesting one. The first movie in the franchise had us marveling at the visual wizardry as prehistoric dinosaurs came to life in John Hammond's (the late Richard Attenborough) Jurassic Park. Things got out of hand when Dennis Nedry decided he wanted to make a little money selling dino DNA. Now, the humans are causing problems again as they continue to play God by not only bringing us dinosaurs (despite the problems the last three times around), but by purposely creating a new breed of dinosaur, the Ultrakillosaurus and it is gobbling up everything in sight. Just below is the new Jurassic World trailer, give it a peek and let me know if you'll be in line when the park opens back up on June 12. yt id="yaWuNjHH2xA" width="500" Twenty-two years after the events of Jurassic Park, Isla Nublar »

‘Cinderella’ Press Conference As It Happened

23 March 2015 5:30 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Cinderella hits UK this Friday. A traditional take on the classic fairy tale, Kenneth Branagh directs Downton Abbey‘s Lily James as the titular heroine. The film is a true live adaptation of Disney‘s iconic cartoon and features a plethora of fine actors and actresses, most of them British. Kenneth Branagh’s name on the directors chair obviously helped get a few to sign the dotted line; the film stars Richard Madden, Cate Blanchett, Helena Bonham Carter, Derek Jacobi and Stellan Skarsgard to name but a few.

Ahead of Cinderella’s cinematic release (which feature new Frozen short film Frozen Fever) we were invited to the luxurious Claridges to attend a very special press conference. We felt just like Cinderella as we walked through the historic building.  There were many questions that people were dying to ask, but we had but one – had Prince Kit not learned anything from Rob Stark’s marital choices? »

The Urgent 16: Human Rights Watch Film Festival 2015

18 March 2015 1:05 PM, PDT | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

The world is upside down, or as David Lynch puts it: "The world is wild at heart and weird on top." The countries that are peace keepers are also the biggest manufacturers of weapons and the most profitable industries are the ones that are destroying this planet. One percent of the population owns more than the other ninety-nine together. Our system is fundamentally unjust. That is a fact and many of today's urgent problems are obliging us to examine the very framework of our society.When you scroll through the programme of this year's Human Rights Watch Film Festival (Hrwff), you cannot but notice that most of the 16 films, except for John Stewart's directing debut Rosewater, a film about the life of the Iranian-Canadian journalist Maziar Bahari, are documentaries. They are bringing us unknown stories from all over the world and they point to issues concerning violations of human rights. »
