Everything you need to know about Jurassic World 2: The cast, plot and latest spoilers

30 August 2015 1:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

After $1.6 billion in box office takings, a sequel to this summer's mega-smash Jurassic World was always going to be a sure thing. Fans of Rexy, raptor Blue and her crew are in luck because the wheels are in motion for a follow-up.

Details might be scant at the moments, but consider this article (which we'll update as new info drops) your one-stop shop for cast, plot rumours and potential spoilers on Jurassic World 2...

The storyline will see dinosaurs getting weaponised

With Jurassic World seeing John Hammond's dream of a dinosaur theme park in tatters (again), it's difficult to figure out where things will head next. Our prediction: the sequel will be Jurassic War.

Vincent D'Onofrio's character Vic Hoskins pushed hard to turn raptors into weapons for war, and going by Colin Trevorrow's recent quotes it looks like this thread is something that'll be explored in the follow-up. »

How Taylor Swift Won Summer of 2015 — Whether You Like It or Not

27 August 2015 2:33 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Has anyone had a summer like Taylor Swift? Donald Trump may be dominating headlines since launching his presidential campaign in June. The dinosaur-taming Chris Pratt was the season (and all-time opening weekend) box office king, while the breakout stars of smash hit “Straight Outta Compton” are booking big movie gigs and helping sell soundtracks. But since Memorial Day, no one has had the same choke hold on her fan base — or the news cycle — as the country-pop star from Wyomissing, Pennsylvania. From Swift’s influence-flexing on Apple Music to the mass hysteria over her famous friends, TheWrap is ready to. »

Jennifer Lawrence and Amy Schumer Writing Screenplay For Film They’ll Star In As Sisters

27 August 2015 8:23 AM, PDT | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

It isn’t enough that Jennifer Lawrence is as hot as it gets right now, but in order to ensure that she remains the biggest thing ever, she keeps popping up with whoever else makes it into the spotlight. She’s already working with Chris Pratt on the just-crazy-enough-to-work, sci-fi film Passengers, and now she’s working with Amy Schumer.

Apparently, they met a few months ago when Jennifer Lawrence… basically sent Schumer some fan mail. They then vacationed in Martha’s Vineyard, at which point the internet blew up, and now they are writing a screenplay together.

It’s a story that itself could become a movie one day, because they seem to be on a whirlwind… femmance? Why don’t I know a word for that?

The story involves a lot of cracking each other up, so you have to figure we’re going for a wild comedy. »

Vin Diesel Returning for 'Guardians 2', But Does He Need To?

26 August 2015 8:02 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

While there were many naysayers who thought that last year's Guardians of the Galaxy would be Marvel's first box office flop, they were dead wrong. Guardians of the Galaxy went on to become one of the biggest hits of 2014, and now the long wait for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 begins, with the studio setting a May 5, 2017 release date for the sequel.

Vin Diesel Confirmed For Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2

26 August 2015 5:47 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It was probably never really in doubt, but director James Gunn has confirmed that Vin Diesel will return to give life to monosyllabic sentient tree alien Groot in Marvel’s Guardians Of The Galaxy sequel, which is currently titled Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.

To be fair, there was a small chance Groot wouldn’t return for Volume 2 – or at least, not the same Groot from the first film. Towards the end, the noble creature sacrifices himself to save his friends in that tear-jerking (shut up… you know you cried too!) “we are Groot” scene. His pal Rocket saves a sapling though, and just before the credits rolled, we see a bouncing baby Groot dancing to the Jackson 5.

So, although it was always fairly obvious he’d return, there was also the possibility it’d be a younger version, voiced by a different actor… »
