17 hours ago | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

It was the first big look at what director Colin Trevorrow has in store for the iconic Steven Spielberg/Michael Crichton franchise. The answer is the fulfillment of John Hammond’s dream: a dinosaur theme park where no […]

The Park is Now Open! Watch "Jurassic World" Trailer Now!

25 November 2014 10:15 AM, PST | Manny the Movie Guy | See recent Manny the Movie Guy news »

I've been a longtime fan of the "Jurassic Park" franchise. From the books by Michael Crichton to the first movie by Steven Spielberg (yes, not much of a big fan of the last films, even "The Lost World"), I was looking forward to seeing what director Colin Trevorrow could do with the series. I loved his "Safety Not Guaranteed" for its brilliant simplicity, but now he has a budget, and what can he do with that budget? "Jurassic World" stars Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, and Judy Greer and will open on June 12 of next year.

Universal Pictures has released the film's first trailer and from the looks of it, it seems like the same old same old routine. Put a bunch of people in a park, and let the dinosaurs feast! But as soon as I heard the tinkling on the piano, I felt quite nostalgic! So here you go, »

Hop in Some Gyroballs in 4 New Jurassic World Images Featuring Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Nick Robinson, and Ty Simpkins

25 November 2014 10:03 AM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Along with today's first Jurassic World trailer, Universal Pictures has also released four new images from the upcoming sequel.  The movie takes place 22 years after Jurassic Park and is set on a fully functional park on Isla Nublar.  The folks running Jurassic World think genetically modified dinosaurs are a good idea, and so naturally bad things happen.  These images show off one of the film's new doohickeys, a gyroball (not the official name, but I don't know what else to call it), which looks like it tumbled out of Oblivion and got a paintjob. Hit the jump to check out the new Jurassic World images.  The film opens in 3D on June 12, 2015, and stars Chris PrattBryce Dallas Howard, Nick Robinson, Ty Simpkins, Vincent D’Onofrio, Irrfan KhanJake JohnsonOmar Sy, and Judy Greer. Via Universal Pictures. Here's the boilerplate: Steven Spielberg returns to executive produce the long-awaited next »

Watch the First Full Trailer for 'Jurassic World'

25 November 2014 9:09 AM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

The first official trailer for Jurassic World offers a glimpse at the most wonderful park on earth — before reminding you that, yes, cloning dinosaurs really is going to end in disaster sooner or later. The first true look at Colin Trevorrow’s revival of the Michael Crichton franchise — memorably brought to the screen by Steven Spielberg in 1993’s Jurassic Park — opens with a full minute of footage that almost convinces the viewer that everything’s under control and entirely safe this time around…until we see a shark being used as food for a gigantic underwater dino.

Jurassic Park: Who was nearly cast in Steven Spielberg's dino classic?

25 November 2014 4:56 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Not even two dodgy sequels and 21 years passing can erase the magic of the very first time you watched Jurassic Park.

The Steven Spielberg dino adventure brought gasps from audiences - young and old - when it premiered around the world in 1993. Even today, a couple of seconds of that classic score can give you tingles and take you back to first time you saw The Park.

Like all great films, everything felt and looked like it slotted together perfectly. But that wasn't necessarily the case, as there were plenty of other big-name stars who so very nearly got the lead roles.

1. Harrison Ford was nearly... Dr Alan Grant

If it wasn't already greedy enough that Harrison Ford had landed himself awesome cool roles in two of the biggest movie franchises of all time - Star Wars and Indiana Jones - he could have almost have added a third dino-sized »

First Footage From Jurassic World Is Revealed

24 November 2014 3:39 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Like those generated by the distant, thundering footfalls of a Tyrannosaurus Rex, the ripples being made by early publicity for the fourth Jurassic Park film are growing in size. We have slowly progressed from still images being shared on social media, through tiny snippets, to this first official footage from Jurassic World – before the full trailer is finally revealed, on Thursday.

The journey of Jurassic World to the big screen has been a long and tortuous one – it having been in development for over ten years. A sizeable list of directors and writers have come and gone, while names reportedly under consideration for casting have included Keira Knightley, Jeremy Piven, Emmy Rossum, David Boreanaz, John Krasinski and Josh Brolin, in addition to the involvement of original stars Sam Neill, Laura Dern, Jeff Goldblum and Richard Attenborough having been rumoured at various points. The lengthy process sadly saw the passing of »

Movie News: 'Jurassic World' Teases; Jonathan Nolan's Sci-fi Show Moves Forward; New 'Seventh Son' Trailer

18 November 2014 12:45 PM, PST | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Jurassic World: A viral website for Jurassic World has emerged online. It doesn't disclose any significant plot details about the new movie (expect those in a trailer rumored to hit just before Thanksgiving), but if you're a fan of the original movies, it does help place Jurassic World in a timeline in context with the history of InGen as a company. It also gives us the above picture, which is our first official image of B.D. Wong -- the only returning actor/character from Jurassic Park -- in the movie. Westworld: Speaking of old Michael Crichton projects getting a new life, HBO has ordered a full first season of Westworld, the TV remake of the Jurassic Park author's classic sci-fi movie about a theme park run by robots where things go haywire. The show was...

HBO goes from Westeros to Westworld

18 November 2014 12:01 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Long before Interstellar (2014) sought inspiration from the works of American theoretical physicist Kip Thorne, a former Harvard Medical School graduate made a name for himself by creating scientific thrillers that dealt with illegal organ transplants and the resurrection of extinct species from DNA samples.   Not surprisingly Jonathan Nolan, who co-wrote the screenplay for the epic space adventure starring Matthew McConaughey and directed by his brother Christopher Nolan, has found Michael Crichton to be a person of interest.

Jonathan Nolan will be serving as an executive producer, writer and director for the small screen version of Westworld (1973) which revolves around an adult resort divided into three theme worlds populated by androids that malfunction and execute their human guests.  Nolan will be partnering with production companies Bad Robot Productions, Jerry Weintraub Productions, Kilter Films and Warner Bros. Television to produce a full season for the specialty channel responsible for Game of Thrones. »

HBO Officially Orders Westworld

18 November 2014 10:19 AM, PST | Boomtron | See recent Boomtron news »

HBO is loving the concept of Michael Crichtons Westworld as a TV series. The network has officially ordered the star packed series for a full season. The series will star Anthony Hopkins as the main star, Dr. Robert Ford the big boss at the amusement park that features andriod robots. However, these robots go crazy and end up hurting the guest. Most of the big stars will play the robots with room of more than one character. The series will likely hit the airwaves in 2015.

I am glad that the late Michael Crichton is still having success. It is just a shame that he doesn’t get to see this take place. It will be an interesting series, especially to see how they can expand the story as it was written in a movie format. That will take some serious creativity on their end. I suppose that may not be a struggle for HBO, »

HBO Orders Star-Studded Sci-Fi Drama ‘Westworld’ to Series

18 November 2014 7:34 AM, PST | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

HBO has decided to fully enter Westworld. The network announced yesterday that it has officially ordered the sci-fi drama, based on Michael Crichton’s 1973 film and written by Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy, to series. Westworld stars Anthony Hopkins, in his first-ever series regular television role, as an inventor who creates and runs an adult amusement park filled with “lifelike robots.” James Marsden, Evan Rachel Wood, Thandie Newton, Ed Harris, Miranda Otto, and Jeffrey Wright make up the rest of the cast. According to The Hollywood Reporter, sources tell them that the show’s androids—all characters played by Marsden, Wood, and Newton—”can be killed off and return with completely different personas, allowing actors to play many characters.” This storytelling device was apparently very appealing to the show’s actors and helped Westworld attract and assemble its star-studded cast. However, don’t let the fact that characters can be »

Westworld Scores A Series Order

17 November 2014 4:33 PM, PST | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Given the brains trust and producing power behind it – Jonathan Nolan, J.J. Abrams, Jerry Weintraub among them – and the high profile cast it had secured, we were fairly confident that the new, HBO-based take on Michael Crichton’s Westworld would make it past the pilot stage. So it has come to pass, with the American cable channel announcing via Twitter and Vine that the show will hit screens next year.Westworld, of course, promises a new spin on Crichton’s old-school high concept of artificial intelligence in a Wild West-themed adult amusement park going awry when some of the ‘bots become more human than the others.Anthony Hopkins is playing Dr. Robert Ford, the park’s big boss who has plenty of creative vision for the place, but isn’t above using unorthodox means to make sure it succeeds. Then there’s Dolores (Evan Rachel Wood), one of the artificial »

Jonathan Nolan And J.J. Abrams’ Sci-Fi Adaptation Westworld Lands Full Series Order From HBO

17 November 2014 3:04 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The big screen to small screen adaptation craze is cooking up its most interesting concoction to date; a series based on the 1973 Michael Crichton movie, Westworld. Headed up by Jonathan Nolan and J.J. Abrams, the show has been percolating since last year and this summer, the futuristic tale bagged a massive cast. Word has been remarkably quiet since August, and that might possibly be because the pilot went into production. Or Nolan and Abrams did a little “teaser” filming. Either way, whatever they did worked because HBO has now issued Westworld with a full series order.

In a Vine posted via HBO’s official Twitter, the network confirmed the news and further revealed a 2015 broadcast date:

You are correct. @CaptainAutism @JillPantozzi @vqnerdballs #Westworld https://t.co/MsoAfh4OXA

Westworld Gets Series Order from HBO

17 November 2014 3:00 PM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

“Some of our creatures have been misbehaving.” Fans of writer/director Michael Crichton’s Westworld may not have looked at amusement parks or their robot residents the same way after watching the 1973 film, and now a new generation of viewers can see what happens when artificial intelligence goes haywire, as HBO has put in a series order for a reimagining of Crichton’s directorial debut.

“A dark odyssey about the dawn of artificial consciousness and the future of sin”, Westworld is a drama series comprised of one-hour episodes that will premiere on HBO in 2015. The show is executive produced, written, and directed by Jonathan Nolan (Person of Interest creator) and also written/executive produced by Lisa Joy.

Westworld stars Anthony Hopkins, Ed Harris, Evan Rachel Wood, James Marsden, Thandie Newton, Jeffrey Wright, Miranda Otto, Rodrigo Santoro, Shannon Woodward, Ingrid Bolsø Berdal, Angela Sarafyan, and Simon Quarterman.

HBO orders star-studded 'Westworld' to series

17 November 2014 2:25 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

HBO has picked up its star-studded "Westworld" pilot to series, an entirely unsurprising development given the creative talent on both sides of the camera.  "Inspired by" the 1973 film from writer-director Michael Crichton, HBO's "Westworld" was written and directed by "Person of Interest" creator Jonathan Nolan, co-written by Lisa Joy and will be executive produced by J.J. Abrams, Bryan Burk and Jerry Weintraub. The deceptively simple logline for the one-hour says, "Westworld is a dark odyssey about the dawn of artificial consciousness and the future of sin." The original, of course, focused on an American West-themed amusement park sometime in the near future. The park is populated by androids programmed to serve and entertain the guests. The androids begin going haywire due to a mechanical virus of some sort and robot-on-human violence ensues.  Back in July at the Television Critics Association press tour, HBO's Michael Lombardo shied away from direct comparisons between the properties. »

TV Land cancels 'Hot in Cleveland' after 6 seasons

17 November 2014 2:21 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

TV Land cancels “Hot in Cleveland” after 6 seasons The current season will be the last for TV Land’s 1st-ever scripted comedy, which produced more than 100 episodes. The cancelation comes a few months after creator Suzanne Martin told The Hollywood Reporter that she would "love to do at least eight seasons." Katherine Heigl: It “sucks” that Shonda Rhimes still views me negatively “The last one with Shonda… it sucks,” she tells "Extra" of the “Grey’s Anatomy” creator’s recent comments on her “no as*holes policy," referring to Heigl. I am sorry that she feels that way and I wish her nothing but greatness, and I have nothing negative to say about Shonda. I'm a big fan of her work. I watch 'Scandal' every week, and so I'm sorry she's left with such a crappy impression of me. I wish I could do something to change that. »
