Just how far can the 'Jurassic World' sequel really go?

23 July 2015 2:50 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

One of the biggest dangling threads in "Jurassic World" is the fate of Dr. Henry Wu. I thought it was fun casting to bring B.D. Wong back for "Jurassic World," but when I saw the film, I was surprised by just how much screen time they gave him and how clearly he's turned the corner from "bright guy hired by Hammond to do something fantastic and ethically questionable" to "mad scientist screwing his theme park bosses while coming up with some sinister applications for his work." What surprised me more was that they let him live. After all, "Jurassic World" is unafraid to kill even the most peripheral character in violent and preposterous manners, so why wouldn't they kill the man responsible for creating the just-plain-evil dinosaur that's running around eating everyone? The obvious answer is that they still need him, and sure enough, "Jurassic World" makes it clear that Dr. »

Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard are opening the park again for a Jurassic World sequel in 2018

23 July 2015 12:10 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard will be back for another prehistoric adventure when a Jurassic World sequel opens in 2018.

Universal Pictures officially announced today (July 23) that a follow-up to this year's record-breaking box office titan will be released on Friday, June 22, 2018.

These are the 15 best movies of 2015 so far: But do you agree with the list?

Jurassic World director Colin Trevorrow is back in the fold to pen the sequel's screenplay with Derek Connolly, despite having initially cast doubt on his return to the franchise.

An announcement of a sequel comes as little surprise, given that Jurassic World is the highest-grossing movie ever distributed by Universal.

Jurassic World also currently sits as the third highest-grossing movie of all-time, having recently overtaken The Avengers. It sits behind only Avatar and Titanic.

Karlovy Vary Festival President Jiri Bartoska Looks Back on Early Acting Career

17 July 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Star of stage, screen and TV for five decades in the Czech Republic, Jiri Bartoska is best known outside his home country as president of the Karlovy Vary Film Festival, which wrapped its 50th edition July 11. Bartoska, 68, has overseen the fest since its privatization a little over 20 years ago. But long before that,Variety noted his presence in Frantisek Vlacil’s “Shadows of a Hot Summer,” which took top honors at Karlovy Vary in 1978.

What were things like for Czech actors in 1978?

There was a different situation for theater actors and film actors. Theater actors did classic repertoire. At that time, the theater filled in for all the media outlets, which were entirely at the service of the regime. It was usually sold out, because people could compare their current situation with those classic scenes, and find truth in them. With film it was a bit different: Film was a »

Pierce Brosnan: The Hollywood Flashback Interview

24 June 2015 12:46 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Interview | See recent The Hollywood Interview news »

I interviewed Pierce Brosnan in conjunction with his third outing as James Bond, in Michael Apted's The World Is Not Enough, in 1999. Brosnan was alternately charming, erudite, thoughtful and intense during our two hour chat. His native intelligence shone through it all, as did a sense of decency which many people seem to acquire after enduring and surviving hardship in their formative years.

Bonding With Brosnan

By

Alex Simon

There are several dangers in becoming a cultural icon, not the least of which is the stigma that your public will forever keep you imprisoned in the mold of your iconography, allowing the recipient a privileged, if imprisoned, existence, particularly if that person is an artist. Sean Connery faced just such a dilemma during the height of James Bond-mania in the mid-60's. A serious actor, Connery desperately wanted to break out of the action hero mold that was British Superspy James Bond, »

Marketing the 'Jurassic' beast

22 June 2015 5:12 PM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Exclusive: Universal heads orchestrated a precisely calibrated marketing campaign in support of the release that played a critical role in driving the tentpole past $1bn worldwide in record time on Monday.

As production on Jurassic World gained momentum in 2014, top brass at Universal and co-financier Legendary grew increasingly confident that Colin Trevorrow’s action franchise reboot would deliver thrills.

Yet there were potential obstacles. It had been 14 years since Jurassic Park III and 22 years since Jurassic Park, Steven Spielberg’s beloved box office beast that spawned the franchise.

Universal’s global marketing team knew that if their tentpole were to really take off they would need to tap into an enduring love for the series.

“We wanted to make sure Jurassic World was always going to be seen as one of the three big movies this year with Avengers 2 and Star Wars,” says Simon Hewlett, the London-based executive vice-president of Universal Pictures International (Upi, pictured).

Does ‘Jurassic World’ Make You Feel Like a Dinosaur? Don’t Worry, You’re Not Alone

22 June 2015 6:28 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Hard to believe it’s been 22 years since “Jurassic Park.” If that fact alone doesn’t make you feel old, now there’s “Jurassic World” to make those of us ancient enough to remember — and admire — the original feel like dinosaurs.

In theory, the movie is a sequel, but let’s admit it: “Jurassic World” is really a remake — a remake engineered the way Steven Spielberg probably figures he’d have to treat “Jurassic Park” if he were making it for the first time today, at a time when half that film’s problems could be solved by a little invention called the cell phone. (As for Spielberg’s “Jaws”? Fuggedaboudit. We’re living in the age of “Sharknado.” No one’s impressed by a shark anymore.)

For the sake of this column, I’m going to assume you’ve seen “Jurassic World.” Ten days in theaters, and the movie has already grossed nearly $1 billion. »

Oscar-Nominated Actor Biggest Professional Regret: Turning Down 'Doctor Who'

Ron Moody in Mel Brooks' 'The Twelve Chairs.' The 'Doctor Who' that never was. Ron Moody: 'Doctor Who' was biggest professional regret (See previous post: "Ron Moody: From Charles Dickens to Walt Disney – But No Harry Potter.") Ron Moody was featured in about 50 television productions, both in the U.K. and the U.S., from the late 1950s to 2012. These included guest roles in the series The Avengers, Gunsmoke, Starsky and Hutch, Hart to Hart, and Murder She Wrote, in addition to leads in the short-lived U.S. sitcom Nobody's Perfect (1980), starring Moody as a Scotland Yard detective transferred to the San Francisco Police Department, and in the British fantasy Into the Labyrinth (1981), with Moody as the noble sorcerer Rothgo. Throughout the decades, he could also be spotted in several TV movies, among them:[1] David Copperfield (1969).

Oscar Nominated Moody Pt.2: From Fagin to Merlin - But No Harry Potter

How Much It Would Cost To Build Jurassic World

15 June 2015 8:11 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Thanks to the release of Jurassic World, have you been finding yourself thinking about opening up a dinosaur theme park of your very own? Well, if you do, I sure hope that you have about $23,432,400,000 laying around. How do we know that would be the cost of such a venture? Watch the video below and find out! Fandango put together this fun little video celebrating the release of Jurassic World, and as you might have guessed, it actually costs a whole lot of money to create a dinosaur theme park - meaning that Richard Attenborough's John Hammond and his company InGen must have been pulling in some serious cash in order to make the original Jurassic Park. That being said, it looks as though it may have been a good thing that the plan never really worked out, given that the operations cost of the wondrous dinosaur island(s »

Examining the Jurassic Park 4 script that was never filmed

15 June 2015 12:24 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

As Jurassic World bites a hole in our multiplexes, we compares its events to John Sayles' Jurassic Park IV script from a decade ago...

Nb: the following contains spoilers for Jurassic World.

For Universal, the success of Jurassic World is the $500m pay-off to a story which began well over a decade ago. Work on a third Jurassic Park sequel originally began after the release of Joe Johnston’s coolly-received Jurassic Park III way back in 2001, yet the film languished in a pre-production quagmire as writer after writer seemingly struggled to crack the story.

William Monahan (The Departed, Kingdom Of Heaven) was the first screenwriter to step up to the plate, announced at a time when Keira Knightley was reportedly in the running for a major role. Around that time, Jeff Goldblum and Richard Attenborough were also thought to be returning to their respective roles of Ian Malcom and John Hammond. »

Review: Jurassic World

11 June 2015 6:57 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Cue the music, open the gates, light the torches… the park is open and the dinosaurs are back. It’s been more than twenty years since Steven Spielberg’s Jurassic Park roared into theaters in 1993, bringing a blend of practical and computer-generated special effects that changed the landscape of what was possible with visual storytelling. The prehistoric came to life, spawning two sequels and now Colin Trevorrow’s Jurassic World. The vision of Jurassic Park from the first film has come to operational life in a corporate-driven amusement park bent on bigger and badder dinosaurs. And the results are as expected, Jurassic World amps up the dinosaur action with exciting sequences, making it feel like a thrill ride while also paying homage to the original film with clever nods and telling humor. However, the action adventure aspect is just half the ride, albeit the half most fans will be coming for. »

Jurassic World Review Roundup: Critics Debate Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard's Chemistry, Love Dinosaurs

10 June 2015 10:45 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Have we learned nothing in the last two decades? Twenty-two years after the events of Jurassic Park, the Patel Corporation reopens Isla Nublar as a fully functioning dinosaur theme park, Jurassic World, as originally envisioned by John Hammond (Richard Attenborough). In the aptly titled reboot Jurassic World, in theaters this Friday, Chris Pratt plays Owen Grady, a member of the park's on-site staff who conducts behavioral research on Velociraptors. Jurassic World's attendance rates have been declining over time. To attract new visitors, the genetic engineers at Hammond Creation Lab develop a new attraction: a hybrid dinosaur called Indominus Rex. Predictably, their plan backfires. Big time. The »

Life Finds a Way: the Jurassic Park franchise supercut

10 June 2015 10:34 AM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

In 1993, director Steven Spielberg unleashed an onslaught of raptors, t-rexes, and Jeff Goldblum’s chest hair onto multiplexes the world over. Twenty-two years and two sequels later, John Hammond’s (Richard Attenborough) park is officially open for business. 

Unfortunately for Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard’s characters, however, no one has learned the clear message of those classic Amblin films: Don’t clone dinosaurs. Seriously, just don’t do it. It’s an incredibly bad idea. You’d think everybody would understand that after Samuel L. Jackson lost his arm in the first movie.

Though John and his employee’s fondness for genetically modifying dinosaurs – and then selling tickets to their habitat – is maybe not in the best interest of Jurassic Park’s insurance bill, it does make for excellent hold-onto-your-butts cinema.

In celebration of Jurassic World hitting theatres this Friday, we put together a supercut of all our »

5 Things You Need to Know Before You See 'Jurassic World'

10 June 2015 7:30 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

This Friday, "Jurassic World" is unleashed on an unsuspecting world, where it will gnash its teeth and swing its tail and generally make life miserable for puny humans foolhardy enough to mess with the laws of nature. (Hubris gets you every time.)

Some estimates have suggested that "Jurassic World" will be the box office hit of this summer (sorry, "Aloha"). That's right: 22 years after the original film debuted and decimated all box office records, this sequel could do pretty much the same thing.

But what do you really need to know about the movie before seeing it this Friday

1. It's a Direct Sequel to the Original 'Jurassic Park'...

For those keeping track at home, this is the fourth "Jurassic Park" film. The last film in the series was 2001's middling "Jurassic Park III," which saw original hero Alan Grant (Sam Neill) traveling back to a dinosaur-infested island to »

Film Review: ‘Jurassic World’

10 June 2015 6:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

“No one’s impressed by a dinosaur anymore,” notes one character early on in “Jurassic World,” and it’s easy to imagine the same words having passed through the lips of more than one Universal Studios executive in the years since Michael Crichton and Steven Spielberg’s 1993 “Jurassic Park” shattered box-office records, along with the glass ceiling for computer-generated visual effects. Two decades and two lackluster sequels later, producer and studio have spared few expenses in crafting a bigger, faster, noisier dinosaur opus, designed to reclaim their place at the top of the blockbuster food chain. What they’ve engineered is an undeniably vigorous assault of jaw-chomping jolts and Spielbergian family bonding that nevertheless captures only a fraction of the original film’s overflowing awe and wonderment. Which should still be more than enough to cause a T-Rex-sized ripple effect at the summer multiplex turnstile.

In Defence Of... Jurassic Park III: Fresh, exciting and a whole lot of fun

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

14 years ago, Universal Pictures was banking on the re-invention of one of its top movie franchises becoming its biggest hit of the summer. The studio handed one of its greatest money-making franchises to a visionary director and tasked him with breathing new life into a sagging franchise. This director would need to create a movie that winked at its past, while also expanding its world beyond its memorable but somewhat limiting premise. Sound familiar?

Long before Jurassic World there was Jurassic Park III, a 2001 movie that has largely been swept under the rug by fans of the blockbuster film series. Pinpointing exactly why Jurassic Park III is so often ignored is difficult. When Jurassic Park III is referenced in the public discourse, it's often unfavourably compared to the original Jurassic Park or disregarded as being as bad or worse than The Lost World. Make no mistake - Jurassic Park III is much, »
