’The Young Pope’: Paolo Sorrentino on Lenny’s Fate and Hopeful Plans for a Second Season

25 February 2017 8:41 AM, PST | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

[Editor’s Note: The following review contains spoilers for the first season of “The Young Pope.”]

The finale of “The Young Pope’s” first (but hopefully not final) season was a true test of faith for some fans, leaving them with more questions than they had going into the episode.

Lenny Belardo (Jude Law), aka Pope Pius Xiii, finally showed his face to address his flock with the global message to “smile,” but after spying what looked like his elderly parents in the crowd, he collapsed. It is unclear if this event presages his imminent death or if he’ll merely be sidelined while recovering. We’re not even sure if the show will continue another season or if/how Lenny’s future would play out in it. Seeking enlightenment, IndieWire turned to the show’s creator Paolo Sorrentino, who agreed to answer our burning questions.

Jurassic World 2 Begins Shooting, First Set Photo Arrives

24 February 2017 9:33 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Get ready for some serious (possibly weaponized) dinosaur action, because Jurassic World 2 is officially underway. Yesterday, crews were very busy in Slough, England setting up cameras and readying for the tremendous undertaking that is making a Jurassic Park movie. Today officially makes the first day of filming on Jurassic World 2, which was confirmed by Bryce Dallas Howard in a tweet that also included a brand new set photo.

The actress took to Twitter in order to declare that filming has begun on Jurassic World 2 by posting a photo from the set, which unfortunately didn't reveal too much. As far as set photos go, it is pretty unexciting, since it is just a picture of a chair with her character Claire's name on it. Even though the actual content of the photo isn't necessarily exciting and doesn't feature any dinosaur action, the knowledge that cameras are rolling on the next installment »

Weaponized Dinosaurs And More Teased In This Unofficial Jurassic World 2 Logline

20 February 2017 1:52 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

James Cromwell, Ted Levine and Bd Wong have all climbed aboard Jurassic World 2 just in time, as according to a new report, filming on Juan Antonio Bayona’s creature feature is due to commence on February 27th.

That tidbit was buried in a filing from My Entertainment World (via Screen Rant), noting that Bayona’s upcoming sequel will lens in Hawaii, London and Brecon Beacons, Wales throughout the course of 2017. All three countries have surfaced as potential locations in the past, which lends credence to Mew’s unofficial synopsis. Included below, the alleged logline points to a scenario in which the government and InGen are in cahoots, leading to the creation of weaponized dinosaurs that have been engineered solely for “battle purposes.”

Couple this with the return of Bd Wong’s nefarious geneticist Dr. Henry Wu, who was last seen fleeing Isla Nublar with a stash of dino embryos, and »

Bd Wong’s Shady Geneticist Will Be Back For Jurassic World 2

20 February 2017 7:52 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Ahead of its launch next June, production on Universal’s Jurassic World 2 is officially underway in London, and it appears those early rumors linking Bd Wong with Juan Antonio Bayona’s monstrous sequel were right all along.

Taking to Instagram over the course of the weekend, Wong all but confirmed that he’ll reprise the role of shady geneticist Dr. Henry Wu, who was last seen fleeing Isla Nublar by helicopter with a raft of dinosaur embryos. Towards the end of Colin Trevorrow’s franchise revival, we learned that Wu actually held an alliance with Vic Hoskins (Vincent D’Onofrio) that involved licensing InGen’s research to the military. And we all know how much Hoskins wanted to assimilate the Velociraptors onto the battlefield.

Can we expect to see Wong’s pioneering research stretch beyond the parameters of Costa Rica come 2018? It would certainly appear so. Besides, such a plot »

Jurassic World 2 Brings in James Cromwell

16 February 2017 5:16 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

With production beginning soon in London on Universal's highly-anticipated Jurassic World 2, the cast continues to be filled out. Oscar nominated actor and Emmy winner James Cromwell has signed on for an unspecified role in this action-packed sequel. Much like all of the other new cast members, no details have been given for the character James Cromwell is playing, but he'll join Jurassic World stars Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard and Bd Wong, who return as Owen Grady, Claire Dearing and Dr. Henry Wu, respectively.

Earlier this week, producer Frank Marshall revealed a photo from his new office, hinting that production has begun on this sequel. While pre-production is likely still happening, The Hollywood Reporter reveals that principal photography won't actually start until later this month, although a specific date wasn't given quite yet. It remains to be seen how many more roles need to be filled out before filming actually begins. »

‘The Young Pope’ Review: Finale Upends Expectations By Delivering What Everyone’s Been Waiting To See

13 February 2017 7:00 PM, PST | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

[Editor’s Note: The following review contains spoilers for the first season of “The Young Pope.”]

Lenny showed his face to his people, and it may have killed him.

When “The Young Pope” premiered, we may have expected Lenny to die — an assassination seemed imminent, given his controversial positions — but it never seemed likely he would bend to peer pressure and give the people what they want: him. Lenny. The pope, in the flesh, unmasked and preaching…happiness?

Paolo Sorrentino’s first five episodes were filled with contradictions: Lenny was a young pope with old attitudes, and his elderly peers had far more progressive minds. Though he knew he was a handsome man (and called attention to it frequently), Lenny refused to let anyone take his photograph. From the astounding contradiction that Lenny was a pope who might not believe in God, to the simple sound of his first name — calling the Pope “Lenny” has a formal discrepancy to it, like saying “Hey Barry” to the »
