Channel 4 are about to embark on a new ten part sci-fi anthology series in September called Electric Dreams with a whole host of actors you may just recognise and we have three first look images from the series which include Doctor Strange actor Benedict Wong and Free Fire’s Jack Reynor.
The series, which is inspired by Philip K. Dick’s renowned short stories, will feature ten standalone episodes where each are set in a different and unique world – some which lie in the far reaches of the universe and time and others which are much, much closer to home. While the stories may be worlds apart, central to each is the poignant and warm exploration of the importance and significance of humanity.
Adapted by a number of leading writers and directors, the Electric Dreams series will »

Madrid — Gaston Duprat and Mariano Cohn’s “The Distinguished Citizen,” a lament for small-town small-mindedness, won big at the 4th Platino Ibero-American Film Awards taking its top best picture prize, and multiple further plaudits.
Further top honors went to Pedro Almodovar, best director for “Julieta,” and Sonia Braga, who took the actress plaudit for “Aquarius at a ceremony attended by Edward James Olmos, Rob Schneider, John Leguizamo, Sonia Braga, Kate del Castillo, Geraldine Chaplin, “Narcos” actor Manolo Cardona, Oscar Martinez, Rosy de Palma and Martina Gusman. Also present, among directors: Almodovar, Pablo Trapero, J.A. Bayona and Andi Baiz.
In all, Spanish productions swept 12 or the 14 jury prizes, voted by a jury of professionals who had participated in previous editions. That may be put down in part to “A Monster Calls” featuring among contenders, and winning big time in the technical department, and “The Distinguished Citizen” being co-produced out of Spain.

We’re renaming today Set Image Monday as a gaggle of new images have emerged from the set of J.A. Bayona’s recently wrapped set of Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom featuring Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard.

The images from the sequel to the 2015 film Jurassic World, and the fifth installment in the Jurassic Park film series, show Pratt’s Owen Grady and Howard’s Claire Dearing emerging from the strong current of the sea in a state of exhaustion before collapsing on a beach – possible after a battle with a sea-based monster? There have been whispers that a submarine battle could feature in the forthcoming production so it’s looking highly likely these images could tie in nicely with that plot line.

Bayona celebrated the end of the shoot by posting a gif of star Chris Pratt in full costume as Velociraptor trainer/expert Owen Grady, doing goofy hip exercises on the set of Jurassic World; Marshall brought fans behind-the-scenes with his post. Check out both down below…

A couple years back, Jurassic World hit theaters and set the world on fire. Whether your liked the film or not, there’s no denying that it reinvigorated the long-dormant franchise. No, it may not have had the film gravitas of the original Jurassic Park, but when all said and done, it brought the popcorn movie thrills, and generally pleased the mainstream audiences. The film has since gone down as the fourth highest grossing flick of all time.
Since then, we knew that not only a sequel, but an entire franchise resurgence was inevitable. It wasn’t long before it was confirmed that a June 2018 release was confirmed, but in true studio style, the name of the film was kept under wraps. For the life of me, I still don’t understand the reason behind keeping the names secret. Perhaps it has to do with spreading out the hype for the film over a longer period, or maybe they just take a long time to come up with the names.

So Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom is the title they settled on for this movie. Perhaps even more of note is the familiar tagline on the poster that reads “life finds a way.” We look forward to seeing what this fallen kingdom is, but more than anything, I’m looking forward to seeing just how they plan on working Jeff Goldblum’s Ian Malcolm into the story.
We have one year to find out.
Here's a description of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom:
"With all of the wonder, adventure and thrills synonymous with one of the most popular and successful franchises in cinema history, this all-new motion-picture event sees the return of favorite characters and dinosaurs—along with new breeds more awe-inspiring and terrifying than ever before. Welcome to Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom. "Stars Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard return alongside executive producers Steven Spielberg and Colin Trevorrow for Universal Pictures and Amblin Entertainment’s Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom. Pratt and Howard are joined by co-stars James Cromwell, Ted Levine, Justice Smith, Geraldine Chaplin, Daniella Pineda, "Toby Jones, Rafe Spall, while Bd Wong and Jeff Goldblum reprise their roles."Directed by J.A. Bayona (The Impossible), the epic action-adventure is written by Jurassic World’s director, Trevorrow, and its co-writer, Derek Connolly. Producers Frank Marshall and Pat Crowley once again partner with Spielberg and Trevorrow in leading the team of filmmakers for this stunning installment. Belén Atienza joins the team as a producer."

The sequel to “Jurassic World” got an official title on Thursday morning — one year ahead of its expected release.
The new poster for the upcoming film, subtitled “Fallen Kingdom,” includes a tag line for the film: “Life finds a way.”
Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard will reprise their roles from the last movie. Jeff Goldblum — who appeared in 1993’s “Jurassic Park” and in 1997’s “The Lost World: Jurassic Park” — joins the sequel. The rest of the cast includes B. D. Wong, Toby Jones, Rafe Spall, Justice Smith, Daniella Pineda, Ted Levine, Geraldine Chaplin, and James Cromwell.
Bayona shared a first-look photo of “Fallen Kingdom” in March. The image shows a mysterious young girl in a natural history museum with her back turned to the camera.
“Jurassic World” grossed $1.67 billion worldwide, the fourth-highest-earning movie in history. Vice president of production Sara Scott is overseeing production for the sequel on behalf of the studio.
“Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom” is scheduled to hit theaters in exactly one year on June 22, 2018.

From the moment Juan Antonio Bayona was appointed at the helm of Jurassic World 2, everyone involved in Universal’s 2018 sequel – specifically the outgoing Colin Trevorrow, who vacated the director’s chair to pursue Disney’s galaxy far, far away and Star Wars: Episode IX – have spoken at length about how Bayona’s follow-up aims to be the scariest, most intense installment in the decorated series to date.
And who better to steer the seemingly nerve-shredding Jurassic World 2 toward the silver screen than J.A. Bayona? From The Orphanage to 2016 sleeper hit A Monster Calls – for the record, the Spanish filmmaker was briefly attached to direct World War Z 2 for Paramount Pictures – Bayona has already amassed an impressive body of work in a relatively short space of time, and though the shift over to Hollywood’s blockbuster scene no doubt presents challenges of its own, we’re quietly confident that the director »

Speaking to the Happy Sad Confused podcast to coincide with the release of his new film The Book of Henry, Jurassic World 2 producer and screenwriter Colin Trevorrow has been chatting about Jeff Goldblum’s return to the Jurassic Park franchise as Dr. Ian Malcolm, and how he went about writing the character and his dialogue in the upcoming sequel.
“You know, I did rely on [Michael] Crichton for a lot. I used a lot of Crichton dialogue. Maybe one of my highlights of this whole process is Goldblum. Jeff Goldblum called me – and I’m not going to do an impression – but he was like, ‘Look, I’ve added a couple of things, and I thought I’d perform it for you.’ [Laughs] Oh, great, okay. So, we sat on the phone for an hour as he ran these lines, and I talked about it. And, I mean, that’s – it was »

Colin Trevorrow may have handed over directing duties on the Jurassic World sequel to J.A. Bayona in order to concentrate on Star Wars: Episode IX, but he does remain heavily involved with the project, having co-written the screenplay and serving as executive producer on the film. Speaking to CinemaBlend, Trevorrow has revealed that he believes the sequel will be scarier than Jurassic World, although it will also contain the same fun kind of adventure present in the 2016 blockbuster.
“J.A Bayona is very good at [creating scares],” states Trevorrow. “There are things that he’ll just do with a shadow, or a rustling curtain on a wall. He’s so tapped into that kind of fear, especially the fear through the eyes of child. Which, you know, he and I are just simpatico. We may be the mirrors of each other. It is by far the most satisfying collaboration of my life. »

There is a masterpiece of a movie waiting to be made from Daphne Du Maurier’s pointedly ambiguous 1951 Gothic novel My Cousin Rachel, but all it’s inspired so far are credible and faithful adaptations—first a Hollywood romance with Olivia De Havilland, then a BBC miniseries with Geraldine Chaplin, and now a mordant and fittingly morbid British film with a superbly cast Rachel Weisz in the title role of a 19th century widow who arrives at her late husband’s estate in the ruggedly scenic English county of Cornwall under a cloud of rumors and suspicions. As in all iterations, the narrative unfolds from the limited point-of-view of Philip Ashley (Sam Claflin), an orphan lovingly raised from childhood by his older cousin, Ambrose (Claflin again). After traveling to the warmer climes of Florence on the advice of his doctors, the lifelong bachelor Ambrose unexpectedly announces that he is »
