‘Jurassic World’ Eyes Huge $100 Million Plus Opening

26 May 2015 2:50 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Jurassic World” is shaping up to be a box office monster.

The latest installment in Universal Pictures’ “when dinosaurs attack” franchise doesn’t hit theaters until June 12, but pre-release tracking suggests it will feast on an opening weekend of $100 million or more — an impressive debut for a franchise that hasn’t released a new chapter in more than a decade.

“The trailers are connecting in such a big way,” said Phil Contrino, vice president and chief analyst at BoxOffice.com.

Pre-release ticket sales have been robust since they kicked off on May 15, and Fandango reports that the film is one of its top five best sellers this week.

Time appears to have made the heart grow fonder for Universal and Steven Spielberg’s prehistoric reptiles. Though the first film shattered box office records and the second installment was the third highest grossing film of 1997 (both pics were helmed by Spielberg »

26 May 2015 9:09 AM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Executive Producer Steven Spielberg and director Colin Trevorrow goes behind the scenes in the brand new featurette for the long awaited film, Jurassic World.

The film will be released in 3D by Universal Pictures on June 12, 2015.

Just last week actor and funny guy Chris Pratt pre-apologized for what he may say in the coming weeks. “To those I (will have) offended please understand how truly sorry I already am. I am fully aware that the subject matter of my imminent forthcoming mistake, a blunder (possibly to be) dubbed “JurassicGate” is (most likely) in no way a laughing matter. To those I (will likely have had) offended rest assured I will do everything in my power to make sure this doesn’t happen (again).”

I want to make a heartfelt apology for whatever it is I end up accidentally saying during the forthcoming… http://t.co/bz6ybcWr1k

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, »

Trailer Trashin’: Sizing Up the New Jurassic World Trailer

22 May 2015 9:25 AM, PDT | CinemaNerdz | See recent CinemaNerdz news »

I’m back, dear readers. I had a great time on my vacation – I was across the pond in London, in case anyone was wondering – and I’ve returned to bring you more analysis of the latest and greatest movie trailers. As I mentioned, I’d written four Trailer Trashin’ columns to be released over the time I was gone, covering four of the biggest trailers that dropped in the later part of April. But I had some computer troubles with this last one, so I’m presenting it to you now. With that said, let’s take a look at the official global trailer for Jurassic World.

Premise: Twenty-two years after the events of Jurassic Park (1993), Isla Nublar, an island located off Central America’s Pacific Coast near Costa Rica, now features a fully functioning dinosaur theme park, Jurassic World, as originally envisioned by John Hammond – this new park »

Jurassic World InGen Video Celebrates Tomorrow, Today; Forgets Yesterday

15 May 2015 8:25 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

As part of Jurassic World’s viral campaign, Universal has released a video highlighting InGen, the company responsible for resurrecting dinosaurs. It’s a clever video done in the style of an Apple promo, and it’s both funny and creepy. They’ve clearly rejected Ian Malcolm’s declaration that just because they could, they didn’t stop to think if they should. Instead, the company has never been more aggressive in its scientific advancements, and they brag about not only the speed at which they can now create dinosaurs, but also other advancements they’ve made in medicine, agriculture, and defense. The video also reveals dinosaurs other than the Indominus Rex we might expect to see in the movie—Microceratus, Baryonyx, and Suchomimus. Check out the InGen video below. Jurassic World opens in 3D on June 12th and stars Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Nick Robinson, Ty Simpkins, Vincent D’Onofrio, »

New Jurassic World TV Spot Visits a Dinosaur Petting Zoo

13 May 2015 9:06 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

The Jurassic World marketing campaign never even needed to tease the raptor squad or the Indominus Rex. The appeal of seeing a fully operational version of John Hammond's original dream was more than enough of a draw. There's a good deal of dino destruction in the film's latest TV spot, but the piece also does a far better job than most at conveying what a day at Jurassic World is like before jumping into all of the chaos. I wanted to make a cute joke about that dinosaur petting zoo, but that's really what the Jurassic World promotional push needs more of - smaller moments that make you wish you could actually visit a place like this, not necessarily ones that reveal how Jurassic World takes what Hammond was trying to achieve to the next level. Check out the new Jurassic World TV spot below. The film opens in 3D on June 12th, »

Review: 'Mad Men' - 'The Milk and Honey Route': For old times' sake

11 May 2015 9:56 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

A review of last night's "Mad Men" coming up just as soon as I'm the quick brown fox... "We both know things can't be undone." -Trudy "Says who?" -Pete "Mad Men" has chronicled a period of enormous social change (and taken place in a time of enormous change in television), yet it's often seemed agnostic on whether individual change is possible. Over the course of the series, fashions shifted and opportunities rose for women and minorities, but were the "Mad Men" characters themselves really changing with the times? Peggy has certainly grown, yet we've seen Don and Roger and Joan and others have epiphany after epiphany, only to eventually lean back on their old habits. (And even Peggy hasn't been immune to stagnation in her personal life, even as she's evolved professionally.) If anything, Don's frequent backsliding has been one of the most common complaints I've heard about the series' »

Walk of Fame Honoree Julianna Margulies Makes ‘Good’

1 May 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Though she’s one of the biggest stars in the medium thanks to “ER” and “The Good Wife,” Julianna Margulies grew up not allowed to watch TV.

“I came from a very artistic family, and we weren’t allowed to watch TV, so we put on plays all the time and used our imagination to entertain,” Margulies said in a previous interview of growing up the youngest of three daughters in Spring Valley, N.Y. It wasn’t until her freshman year at Sarah Lawrence College that she truly realized her calling as an actor.

Margulies was cast in David Rabe’s “In the Boom Boom Room,” playing a go-go dancer. “I just remember this feeling opening night — I was in my little cage with my boots on and I got this overwhelming sense of belonging somewhere,” recalled Margulies. “It was really overwhelming and it just all fell together after that. »

The top 25 underappreciated films of 1989

28 April 2015 11:45 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

From a crazy early Nic Cage role to a lesser-known film starring Robert De Niro, here's our pick of 25 underappreciated films from 1989...

Ah, 1989. The year the Berlin Wall came down and Yugoslavia won the Eurovision Song Contest. It was also a big year for film, with Indiana Jones And The Last Crusade topping the box office and Batman dominating the summer with its inescapable marketing blitz.

Outside the top 10 highest-grossing list, which included Back To The Future II, Dead Poets Society and Honey I Shrunk The Kids, 1989 also included a plethora of less commonly-appreciated films. Some were big in their native countries but only received a limited release in the Us and UK. Others were poorly received but have since been reassessed as cult items.

From comedies to thrillers, here's our pick of 25 underappreciated films from the end of the 80s...

25. An Innocent Man

Disney, through its Touchstone banner, had high hopes for this thriller, »

New Jurassic World Trailer

20 April 2015 10:20 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Universal Pictures

I don’t know about this at all. It looks nice, and expensive, and some of the dinosaurs are wonderful special effects trickery; I love Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard and am always glad to see them on the big screen; and I’ve had a weakness for Theme Park Gone Bad stories since my childhood in the 70s.

But there’s just nothing here that really captures my imagination. What’s it about? What are the themes? Michael Crichton might have been an anti-science luddite but at least he engaged with ideas below the surface all the time.

I’m not saying this film won’t be super smart and engaging, just that the trailer isn’t conveying any of this. Maybe Universal think the SFX and dinos are enough to sell the film.

A raptor pack might seem a little silly, or it might be »
