Voting closed for Emmy nominations on Friday. Ordinarily, I would have already completed my usual If I Had An Emmy Ballot exercise by now, but various other projects got in the way, which means what I'm about to post is even more hypothetical than usual, since it's after the voting deadline. As always, I'm working with the choices listed on the actual Emmy ballots, which means I have to go along with where various shows and actors were categorized and submitted. So I have to consider "Orange Is the New Black" a drama, have to consider Key and Peele supporting actors on their own show, and can't go off the ballot to try nominating an actor like Max Greenfield from "New Girl," who didn't even put his name up for submission. Also, while I've done these as a bunch of separate posts the last few years, this thing's already so »

With the success of Universal's latest Jurassic Park outing, where can the films go next?
The second biggest opening weekend in Us box office history (ahead of Avengers: Age Of Ultron), very positive reviews and another big hit for Universal in what's set to be the studio's best ever summer: it would be fair to say that all concerned won their gamble to resurrect Jurassic Park.
Jurassic World - aka Jurassic Park 4 - has come along 14 years after the fun but weightless Jurassic Park III, and, while staying within the boundaries of what made the first film work so well (just with less interesting characters, in truth), it feels different from the current summer fare. There's no angst, there are few moments where human beings can't be seen amidst the CG, »
Universal Pictures released their new action/thriller flick, "Jurassic World," into theaters this weekend. I just checked it out and thought it was very entertaining, delivering a ton of suspense and action galore. It stars: Bryce Dallas Howard, Judy Greer, Chris Pratt, Ty Simpkins, Jake Johnson, Nick Robinson, Irrfan Khan, Vincent D'Onofrio, Bd Wong, Omar Sy, Katie McGrath, Lauren Lapkus and Andy Buckley. In the new flick, the plotline is set 22 years after the Isla Nublar incident, and Jurassic World is a new, fully functional dinosaur theme park located on the island. Brothers ,Zach and Gray Mitchell, go to visit their aunt Claire Dearing (Bryce Dallas Howard), who is the park's operations manager. However, when they get there, Claire's too busy for them, so she hands them off to her assistant , Zara, promising she'll spend time with them later on. From there, Claire gets a first look at the new »

He stated: "Jurassic World »

Jurassic World Director Colin Trevorrow and actors Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard and Nick Thompson share what it was like to bring the park back to life after almost 15 years and what they’re most excited to see in the IMAX® 3D experience of Jurassic World. I know I'll be watching the film in IMAX, how about you? Steven Spielberg returns to executive produce the long-awaited next installment of his groundbreaking Jurassic Park series, Jurassic World. Colin Trevorrow directs the epic action-adventure from a screenplay he wrote with Derek Connolly. Frank Marshall and Patrick Crowley join the team as producers.

From the perspective of character and story, Jurassic World doesn't leave much of an impression, but based on spectacle alone it packs a wallop. Don't for a second consider why anyone would visit a park where 22 years ago the attractions ate the guests, or how none of the danger would exist without the stupidest decisions from what are considered the film's smartest characters. To do that would be to ruin the fun and director Colin Trevorrow (Safety Not Guaranteed) does his absolute best to make sure you don't dwell on these facts -- even though every frame consists of one dumb decision after another -- by packing it full of action that quite simply wows the audience into submission under the weight of what's taking place. A clumsy opening introduces us to brothers Zach and Gray (Nick Robinson and Ty Simpkins) along with the unnecessary information that their parents are getting a divorce. »

Director: Colin Trevorrow; Screenwriter: Colin Trevorrow, Derek Connolly, Rick Jaffa, Amanda Silver; Starring: Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Vincent D'Onofrio, Judy Greer, Nick Robinson, Ty Simpkins; Running time: 124 mins; Certificate: 12A
Jurassic Park pretty much redefined the blockbuster in 1993 thanks to its blend of high-concept story, sharply-drawn characters and dazzling Ilm-produced visual effects. There's barely a frame out place in Steven Spielberg's rampaging dino epic - it may just be a perfect popcorn movie. Everybody remembers the first time they saw Jurassic Park.
Naturally, making sequels proved troublesome with 1997's The Lost World and 2001's Jurassic Park III taking the action to a second dinosaur-inhabited island and feeling like pale shadows of the ground-breaking original. It's understandable, therefore, to greet Jurassic World with an air of scepticism. With more than a decade stuck in development hell, rookie director Colin Trevorrow at the helm and a series of rickety trailers behind it, »
When I saw the original "Jurassic Park" for the first time, it was a magical screening, held exclusively for the Universal tour guides. It was several weeks before the release of the movie, and they wanted to give us a chance to see it early and then spread the word on the trams about what it was they were about to release. I will always remember and revere the experience of seeing it in the Alfred Hitchcock Theater, in the room where the sound was actually mixed. When the T-rex attack began, everyone in the room stopped breathing. That may sound like an exaggeration, but the temperature went up so much during that one scene that people began sweating. In that one moment, Spielberg and his production team reached deep into our collective memory of being small furry things afraid of being eaten and tapped that fear in a very real and immediate way. »

Chris Pratt had the time of his life Tuesday night. The 35-year-old actor looked happier than ever when he attended the world premiere of his movie, Universal Pictures' Jurassic World, at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood.

Director Colin Trevorrow also attended the premiere, as did many of the film's stars, including Vincent D'Onofrio, Judy Greer, Bryce Dallas Howard, Jake Johnson, Nick Robinson, Ty Simpkins and B. D.

The story centers on a group of monks who undertake a pilgrimage to transport their monastery's holiest relic to Rome. When the true significance of the relic is revealed, the journey becomes much more treacherous. [Source: Heat Vision]

Do you remember the first time you saw Jurassic Park?
"I didn't feel a clean start was necessary," he explained. "I think that the story Michael Crichton told was very well-designed and it actually helped to have had this technology around for 22 years.
"It allowed us to start at a place where we didn't need to reintroduce it to the audience, we could get right into »

Finally arriving in cinemas later this week is the fourth Jurassic Park movie, Jurassic World. This time, it's Colin Trevorrow (Safety Not Guaranteed) who's directing, and the new film is set 22 years after the events of the 1993 original. Which makes sense.

The screenplay meanwhile has been credited to Rick Jaffa, Amanda Silver, Trevorrow and Derek Connolly.
The film officially debuts in the UK this Thursday, and arrives in the Us the day after. And here's one final trailer for the movie. Our usual warning: a little bit more is revealed in this promo, and if you fancy watching a »
