Best known as the writer for the Gus Van Sant directed Restless back in 2011 and he also moonlights as an actor, Jason Lew originally mounted this directorial debut with major starlets in Cillian Murphy and Bryce Dallas Howard but it ended up being American indie players Boyd Holbrook and Elizabeth Moss who would transition into the roles of Mo and Doris. A film of broken spirits and strays (this includes a pooch) with criminal backgrounds, production on The Free World began this past July in New Orleans.
Gist: Mo (Holbrook) has finished serving his time for a brutal crime he did not commit—the murder of two young girls. In prison, his fellow inmates named him “The Cyclops” for his violent behaviour he called himself Mohamed, in homage to the prophet. Not entirely prepared for his new freedom and under constant suspicion by the small town community, he finds solace »

Tie-in video games are nothing new in the moviemaking or televisual world. Through these spin-off products, we can play out adventures featuring our favourite characters without having to leave the house.
Most of the time, though, said characters don’t sound quite right. For financial reasons, you’ll often see a different voice cast step in to replace the overly expensive stars from the original film or TV version. Admittedly, these stand-ins do a very good job from time to time. But you can always tell the difference.
Sometimes, though, providing a rare treat for fans, actors can be convinced – by money, passion or a good script - to reprise their iconic film or TV characters once more for a video game adventure. Here are 32 games that featured instances of this incredibly fun phenomenon… »

Proving that the only thing more inevitable than scientists going too far in blockbuster franchises is Hollywood committing to those franchises way in advance, Universal Pictures chairman Donna Langley revealed to The Hollywood Reporter that, back at the lab, director Colin Trevorrow is cooking up not one, but two Jurassic World sequels. "Colin Trevorrow is busy working on an outline," Langley said in a roundtable conversation. "He's been working with Steven [Spielberg]. And they have an idea for the next two movies, actually. It was designed as a trilogy, unbeknownst to us. It's a happy surprise." News of the first sequel broke quickly after Jurassic World broke all sorts of box-office records this summer, with the promise that Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard would reprise their roles in the June, 2018, release as a stunningly attractive dinosaur tamer and a businesswoman in charge of the presumably-now-defunct titular theme park. »

This Q&A is part of Us Weekly's 2015 Holiday Movie Preview. It’s not easy being lean.

The Oscar-winning director tells Us Weekly about the cast's crazy diet, what advice he got from Tom Hanks, and his possible future collaboration with daughter Bryce Dallas Howard. Us Weekly: [...] »
When a film roars all the way to $1.6 billion at the worldwide box office, you can bet your bottom dollar that the studio involved will fast-track development on a sequel to strike while the iron is still piping hot. And sure enough, Universal wasted no time in slating Jurassic World 2 for a June 22, 2018 release, locking down Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard and Colin Trevorrow for a second crack at the man-versus-prehistoric-monsters formula – though the latter hasn’t committed to directing just yet. But what of the franchise’s future beyond 2018?
As if there was any doubt, Universal has been dreaming up potential avenues to take the reinvigorated juggernaut in the wake of Jurassic World‘s box office-shaking success. So much so, in fact, that the studio’s chairman Donna Langley revealed that Colin Trevorrow and Steven Spielberg have mapped out early plans for a trilogy at Universal.

Confirming what had been suggested earlier in the year, we're not just getting one more Jurassic World film, we're getting at least two.
Following the success - and then some - of director Colin Trevorrow's Jurassic World earlier in the year (it's the third biggest film of all time, with a box office haul of $1.665bn), it was quickly confirmed that a sequel was coming in 2018. Trevorrow isn't directing it - he's got two more films on his plate, including Star Wars: Episode IX - but he remains involved, along with his regular co-writer, Derek Connolly.
After Jurassic World broke Marvel's The Avengers' three-year opening weekend box office record this June with a whopping $208.8 million, most fans knew that the announcement of a sequel was just around the corner. One month later, Jurassic World 2 was formally announced, with Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard reprising their roles as Owen Grady and Claire Dearing, and Jurassic World director Colin Trevorrow co-writing the script with Derek Connolly. During The Hollywood Reporter's annual executive roundtable session, Universal Pictures chairman Donna Langley revealed that Colin Trevorrow is actually developing an entire trilogy with executive producer Steven Spielberg. Here's what the executive had to say, when asked if they will have trouble hitting the previously-announced June 22, 2018 release date.
"There's no reason why we should [have trouble]. [Director] Colin Trevorrow is busy working on an outline. He's been working with Steven [Spielberg]. And they have an idea for the next two movies actually. It was designed as a trilogy, »
How do you follow up the $1.6 billion success of "Jurassic World"? If you're Universal, you set a 2018 release date and hurtle toward it. The dino movie played a big part of the studio's massively successful record breaking year, and studio executive Donna Langley is taking it in stride, as she relates in a new roundtable talk. Read More: Review: Jurassic World, Starring Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Nick Robinson & Ty Simpkins "Obviously, this year has been extraordinary, and we are very grateful for it. And we can be objective about it and say it was part strategy, part timing and a lot of luck. We don't have a magic bullet. We didn't all of a sudden invent a formula for the movie business," she told THR. "And [Fox's] Stacey [Snider] was just talking about failure. Out of failure does come a lot of self-reflection, and our studio was beleaguered for a very long time. »

Bryce Dallas Howard will be wearing ''rubber soles'' in the opening scene of the 'Jurassic World' sequel. The flame-haired actress was filmed running in a pair of high-heels in the money-spinning sci-fi movie, which was released earlier this year, but Bryce has confirmed she won't be trying to recreate the scene in the sequel. She shared: ''The way that [director] Colin [Trevorrow] told me that the sequel was happening, when it got greenlit and I was going to be in it, he texted me: #NoHeels2018. And I was like, 'Yeah boy!''' In fact, Bryce joked that the sequel would poke fun at the memorable scene. She told Et Online: ''The first shot needs to be something just really capable, like just something with great arch support and rubber soles. She needs to be ready to run, eventually.'' What's more, Bryce admitted she was surprised by the controversy that followed the eye-catching scene. »
Gambit: Channing Tatum has been set to star in Marvel's Gambit for a while now, but who will direct? Rupert Wyatt stepped aside in September, and since then three contenders have arisen: Doug Liman (Edge of Tomorrow), Joe Cornish (Attack the Block), and Shane Black (Iron Man 3). Liman has the greatest experience with big-budget productions, though Marvel has often selected newer directors. The movie is tentatively set for release on October 7, 2016. [Heroic Hollywood] Jurassic World: Bryce Dallas Howard came under fire in some quarters because her character in Jurassic World wore high heels while running from dinosaurs. Recently, however, the actress was happy to defend the choice: "This character needed to seem ill-equipped to be in the jungle," she...

Many cinemagoers who saw this year's dinosaur blockbuster complained about the fact that Claire spent the movie running in impractical high-heeled shoes. But Howard reassured fans that the footwear won't be making an appearance in 2018.
"[Director Colin Trevorrow] told me, when the sequel was happening, when it got greenlit and that I was going to be in it, he texted me, '#NoHeels2018'," she told Collider. "And I was like, 'Yeah boy!'"
However, the star added that she didn't understand all the controversy surrounding the heels in the first place.
"That is something I didn't expect at all," she said.
"From my perspective, of course it's illogical for her to be in heels in the jungle [but] she never intended to go into the jungle. And if she were in flats, that would be a cheat. That »
Three interesting clips of note have gone online today. First up is an understandably deleted scene from this past summer's "Jurassic World" in which Bryce Dallas Howard covers herself in dinosaur poo for comedy purposes. It's as clunky as it sounds, and you can check it out below or on the film's Blu-ray and DVD set which is now out:
The second is a featurette about "Creed," the upcoming "Rocky" spin-off film starring Michael B. Jordan as the son of the Apollo Creed character. There's a lot of anticipation for the new film, and the clip explores how Sylvester Stallone came around to the idea of doing a film like this which passes the torch to a new generation. "Creed" opens on November 25th.

Not happening. Bryce Dallas Howard told Collider on Tuesday, Oct. 20, that her character Claire in Jurassic World would not be wearing heels for the blockbuster’s sequel. Fans of the film took notice of Claire’s heels and how they stood out while she trekked through the jungle when the first movie came out this summer. “I was like, of course it’s illogical for her to be in heels in the jungle,” Howard, 34, said. “She never intended to go in the jungle.
