'Jurassic World' Introduces 7 New Dinosaurs

5 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Indominus Rex isn't the only big, bad beast roaming the wilds of Jurassic World. As with any theme park, this unique tourist location needs to keep visitors coming back year after year. And what better way to do that than with the introduction of new dinosaurs? The Jurassic World Viral Site has been updated, and they have introduced 7 more giant monstrosities from the B.C. Era.

Included in this latest batch of images is Suchomimus, Baryonyx, Dimorphodon, Pteranodon, Edmontosaurus, Metriacanthosaurus, and a pack of Microceratus. They join previously revealed dinosaurs Ankylosaurus, Apatosaurus, Gallimimus, the shark-eating Mosasaurus, Stegosaurus, Triceratops, Tyrannosaurus Rex, and of course, Indominus Rex. Yet to be revealed are the Pachycephalosaurus, who we hear are really hard to get rid of, the Parasaurolophus, and the iconic Velociraptor. There is even a handy size chart to compare them all!

Obsessed with TV and Film: Best of the Week

6 hours ago | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

‘Les Loups’ is the first great Quebec film of 2015

The dark unforgiving waters of the Atlantic Ocean and the mouth of the St. Lawrence river provide the backdrop to Les Loups, a beautifully crafted melodrama. Set in a small island Quebec town during the spring thaw, a stranger arrives during the height of the controversial seal hunts. Vibrant and mysterious, many suspect that Elie, the young woman from Montreal, is not who she says and is likely a reporter or an activist bent on portraying the townsfolk in a bad light… read the full article.

The Phantom Menace’ and the goodness of Star Wars nostalgia

A long time ago…in 1999, the pop culture zeitgeist was caught in a Star Wars maelstrom. Writer-director George Lucas and his crack creative team had gone back to the well that made space opera cinema what it is known and appreciated as today by producing »

10 hours ago | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

If you've ever wondered how a handsome star like Chris Pratt measures up, rest assured that you are not alone.

Chris Pratt is playing with his raptors in new images from Jurassic World

26 February 2015 11:07 AM, PST | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

While they don’t offer up much in the way of new information about the movie, these new images from Jurassic World do lend themselves to speculation. Many of us have thought for some time that the raptors might take on a more domesticated role this time around; we saw them running alongside Chris Pratt in the trailer and the image below seems to show him wrangling up his clever girls. It would definitely be something different to see the raptors as allies in the new »

Chris Pratt Wrangles Some Raptors In New Jurassic World Stills

26 February 2015 10:44 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

There are a few elements to Jurassic World that have given some of us pause, and one of them has to do with Velociraptors (the others include why anyone would try re-opening a park like this again, and the very concept of hybrid dinos). The nasty villains of the first Jurassic Park, the Raptors appear to be decidedly more friendly – or at least understandable – in this new version, with Chris Pratt’s character Owen Grady cozying up to them in a way that Sam Neill and Laura Dern would never have dreamed. Will this new approach pay off, or will the Raptors prove once more that they are the meanest and smartest bastards in the dinosaur kingdom?

I mention Raptors now because they figure into the latest batch of images to come at us from the direction of Isla Nublar. Empire Magazine (via Comic Book Movie) have released some images from Jurassic World, »

'Jurassic World' Photos Show Chris Pratt and His Raptors

26 February 2015 8:23 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

We haven't seen anything from Jurassic World in a few weeks, since toy photos gave us our best look at the Indominus Rex. Thankfully, today brings the release of four new photos, featuring Chris Pratt as Owen. The first image has Owen in a room that director Colin Trevorrow describes as the, "most absolute high-tech room we could possibly imagine." The screen in the background appears to display the vital signs for two "troopers."

We also see Own trying to tame two of his trained velociraptors, along with a shot of the actor standing next to director Colin Trevorrow. Twenty-two years after the events of Jurassic Park, Isla Nublar now features a fully functioning dinosaur theme park, Jurassic World, as originally envisioned by John Hammond. After 10 years of operation and visitor rates declining, in order to fulfill a corporate mandate, a new attraction is created to re-spark visitor's interest, which backfires horribly. »

Ever wonder what Hollywood stars are whispering to each other in between poses on the red carpet? According to Jimmy Fallon, it’s a lot of hilarious nonsense.

How Parks and Recreation Gave Chris Pratt the Platform to be a Star

26 February 2015 6:00 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

There’s a version of this article that tries to argue that Chris Pratt is the secret Mvp of the Parks and Recreations universe, combing through all the previous hours of the series to show just how Pratt’s performance as Andy Dwyer provided it energy and jokes that flushed out the show’s comic tone better than almost any other character. The article would then end with an impassioned plea for Hollywood to take notice and not waste this clearly singular comic talent. That article doesn’t exist because Chris Pratt did the unthinkable and went and made himself a big ol’ movie star.

The notion that a relatively low-performing sitcom airing on broadcast television could have within its stable of stars two McU superheroes (Ant-Man, coming this summer) is relatively ridiculous, even given that one of those stars is Paul Rudd. But Chris Pratt has spent seven seasons »

'Tomb Raider' Reboot Set Up at Warner Bros. with 'Divergent' Scribe Penning the Screenplay

25 February 2015 12:45 PM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

The two Tomb Raider movies starring Angelina Jolie were, in my opinion, pretty bad, and judging by the way most people comment any time it's announced a movie adaptation of a popular game is announced, no one else liked them much either. And, interestingly enough, they didn't really make all that much money. The first one grossed only $274.7 million worldwide back in 2001 on a $115 million budget, while the sequel only managed $156.5 two years later on a $95 million budget. So, why have we been hearing about a possible Tomb Raider reboot for about six years nowc Well, the reason it isn't going away is because the most recent "Tomb Raider" videogame release sold around 7.5 million copies and a new game is on the way. Sounds like good timing to get a new movie in the works. Paramount distributed the first two Tomb Raider movies, but now Deadline reports it will be »

Did You Catch the Sly Marvel Reference in the Parks and Recreation Finale?

Depending on where you're at in your grieving process, you may or may have accepted that Parks and Recreation's series finale aired Tuesday night. If you are still in denial, then we'll let you stay there a little longer by confirming that yes, Parks and Rec has 100 more episodes to air and all that series finale talk was just a horrible nightmare.

Watch: 'Parks and Recreation' Team Says Goodbye and Sings 'Li'l Sebastian' on 'Late Night With Seth Meyers'

25 February 2015 8:40 AM, PST | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Last night, following the series finale of NBC's "Parks and Recreation," Amy Poehler, Chris Pratt, Nick Offerman, Adam Scott, Aziz Ansari, Aubrey Plaza, Jim O'Heir, Jon Glaser and co-creator Mike Schur appeared on "Late Night With Seth Meyers" to share stories about filming the finale, and to sing viewers out. The "Parks" crew revealed to Seth Meyers who the biggest crybaby was during the last day of filming, as well as what it was like starting out on the show. The cast also shares some of the ideas they pitched regarding the finale, including Chris Pratt's hilariously dark suggestion that the show should end like "Six Feet Under," where you see how all of the characters die. There was also some inappropriate kissing and singing... Lots of singing. Watch the cast and crew of "Parks and Rec" talk to Seth Meyers about the finale below: Read More: 'Parks and Recreation »
