Jurassic World: Ty Simpkins Talks Landing His Role, the Gyrosphere, and More

3 July 2015 7:00 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

With Jurassic World now in theaters, I recently landed an exclusive interview with Ty Simpkins. He talked about how he landed the role, working in the Gyrosphere, if the script changed during production, getting to work with Shane Black on The Nice Guys and Iron Man 3, video games, future projects, and more. If you didn’t know, executive producer Steven Spielberg personally oversaw the Jurassic World story development, as Trevorrow and his writing partner Derek Connolly fine-tuned the existing screenplay penned by Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver (Rise of the Planet of the Apes), which for the first time takes place within a functioning Jurassic Park. The film also stars Nick RobinsonTy Simpkins, Vincent D’Onofrio, Omar SyIrrfan KhanJake Johnson, and Judy Greer. For more on the film, read Perri’s review. Question: Let me start by saying congratulations on the movie, really good. Ty Simpkins: Thank you. »

Irrfan Khan not in True Detective

29 June 2015 3:21 AM, PDT | BollywoodHungama | See recent BollywoodHungama news »

While Irrfan Khan is busy in Budapest shooting for his new Hollywood film Inferno, reports came out saying that Irrfan Khan would be in the second season of the popular American series True Detective. But Irrfan completely denies being a part of True Detective. "I am not a part of that serial. Neither was I ever a possibility for the Sarabjit bio-pic, as reported," he states emphatically. Irrfan Khan further wants to know who are these "sources" close to him who have revealed to the press his proximity to these two projects. "It's easy to attribute Irrfan's friends as sources verifying his presence in these projects when he is not in the country. But it's not that easy to substantiate such claims," says a source close to Irrfan. »

Jurassic World climbs to eighth at the all time worldwide box office

28 June 2015 9:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Having become the fastest movie ever to gross a billion at the worldwide box office on Monday, Universal’s Jurassic World has now climbed to eighth in the list of the highest-grossing movies of all time.

Jurassic World retained top spot at the Us box office this weekend at the third time of asking, becoming only the fifth film to break the $500 million mark domestically, and has pulled in a whopping $1.238 billion and counting around the globe.

The Colin Trevorrow-directed sequel currently sits in eighth place in the all time chart between Frozen ($1.274 billion) and Iron Man 3 ($1.215 billion), and is sure to catch the year’s highest-earners Avengers: Age of Ultron ($1.369 billion) and Fast & Furious 7 ($1.511 billion).

Jurassic World becomes the fastest movie to gross $1 billion worldwide

22 June 2015 1:12 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

This won’t come as much of a surprise given that it ended its second weekend yesterday with $981 million in the bank, but Jurassic World has crossed the $1 billion mark today.

The Colin Trevorrow-directed sequel becomes the fastest movie to reach that milestone, doing so in just 13 days of release around the globe, and shattering the previous record of 17 days set by Fast & Furious 7 earlier this year.

Not a bad first half of 2015 for Universal Pictures

Jurassic World is the twenty-second movie ever to hit $1 billion worldwide, and is currently the third biggest film of the year behind Avengers: Age of Ultron ($1.369 billion) and Furious 7 ($1.511 billion). It looks set to topple both of those in the coming weeks to become the highest earner of 2015 to date, although Star Wars: The Force Awakens will likely have something to say about that when it arrives in December.

Looking to be Inspiredc Watch the Trailer for 'He Named Me Malala'

22 June 2015 11:56 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

In 2012, Malala Yousafzai boarded her school bus in the northwest Pakistani district of Swat. The bus would eventually be stopped and a Talaban gunman would ask for her by name, after which he would fire three shots at the then 15-year-old girl. One of the bullets hit the left side of her forehead, traveled under her skin, through the length of her face, into her shoulder. Yousafzai would recover. amz asin="0316322423" size="small"The reason for the assassination attempt stemmed from an anonymous blog post she wrote in 2009 for the BBC, detailing her life in Pakistan under Taliban occupation, their attempts to take control of the valley, and her views on promoting education for girls in the Swat Valley. But it doesn't stop there. Following the blog post, "New York Times" journalist Adam B. Ellick and Irfan Ashraf made a documentary titled "Class Dismissed: Malala's Story" (watch it at »

Despite Expanding from a Mere "Park", "Jurassic World" Still Feels Overstuffed

16 June 2015 10:36 AM, PDT | JustPressPlay.net | See recent JustPressPlay news »

Claire (Bryce Dallas Howard) is the manager of Jurassic World, a theme park featuring live dinosaurs. At the start of Jurassic World, she is juggling three major crises. First, her boss Masrani (Irrfan Khan) is pushing for bigger, scarier dinosaurs to feature in the park, and the new genetically enhanced dinosaur, the Indominous Rex, is proving difficult to handle, even in containment. Second, outside forces have more nefarious purposes for genetically-enhanced dinosaurs than entertaining tourists. Thirdly, the resort and park are packed with guests, including Claire’s visiting nephews Gray (Ty Simpkins) and Zach (Nick Robinson), who Claire has not seen in years. When the Indominous Rex gets loose and starts killing everything in sight, including other dinosaurs, Claire has to team up with Owen (Chris Pratt), a raptor wrangler and her ex-boyfriend, to take down the Indominous Rex and save her nephews as well as the other 21,000 tourists on the island. »
