'Guardians of the Galaxy 2' Story Treatment Is Finished

4 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

James Gunn never shies away from fan questions and always prides himself on telling the truth. He doesn't want to keep too many secrets about Guardians of the Galaxy 2, and is as open as he is allowed to be. Yesterday, the director announced that his horror script The Belco Experiment is moving forward with Wolf Creek director Greg Mclean at the helm. Conducting an impromptu Q&A on Periscope (via Screen Rant) about the project, he also offered fans an update on Guardians of the Galaxy 2. He confirms that the story treatment is finished, and that scripting will start soon. He says:

"I turned in my treatment. I'm going in to meet about it Friday and we will start working on the screenplay next week."

The Belco Experiment, which James Gunn is also producing, will begin shooting in June, just as the director starts pre-production on his own epic follow-up »

If Agent Burt Macklin is telling you to evacuate an island full of unpredictable man-made dinosaurs, one of which is a genetically engineered monster the world has never seen before, it'd probably be a wise move to listen.

31 March 2015 1:19 PM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

Exclusive: The first big shoe has dropped after the exit of five senior CAA comedy agents to UTA. I’m told that Chris Pratt has followed his reps Jason Heyman and Martin Lesak to UTA. When Pratt began working with those agents, he was a comedy client, a cast member on Parks And Recreation. That series has just finished its run, and now Pratt has become so much more than that. He has emerged as perhaps the brightest leading man to come along in a long time. He starred in Gu… »

Latest Jurassic World TV Spot Sees The Indominus Rex Go On A Killing Spree

30 March 2015 10:01 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

“And remember if something chases you…run.” Not exactly your typical family farewell, but in a world where towering dinosaurs is the norm, it’s pretty sound advice. It was a quote that underpinned the maiden trailer for Colin Trevorrow’s Jurassic World, and almost five months later, the song remains the same: run!

Starring Guardians of the Galaxy‘s Chris Pratt as Owen, the sequel will take the genetic experiments one step further. In the time that has lapsed since the original Jurassic Park and its then groundbreaking science, the concept of dinosaurs roaming the earth in the 21st century has all become a bit humdrum. So, to spice up the formula — quite literally — and inject some life into the newly-opened park, the film’s scientists make the ill-advised decision to cook up a Frankenstein’s monster-style beast in the form of the Indominus Rex, which is the undisputed »

Chris Pratt faces killer monster in new Jurassic World trailer

30 March 2015 9:26 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

A new Jurassic World trailer has been revealed.

Chris Pratt goes head to head with the park's new attraction, which has gone rogue and started "killing for sport" in the clip.

Jurassic World will be released over a decade after Jurassic Park III, as the Masrani Global Corporation seeks to open a brand new theme park.

The upcoming sequel features Bd Wong reprising his role as Dr Henry Wu from the earlier Jurassic Park movies.

Director Trevorrow recently teased that the menacing new dinosaur in Jurassic World will be "bigger than a T-Rex".

Jurassic World opens on June 12 in the Us and the UK.

Vincent D'Onofrio Joins 'Magnificent Seven,' Arriving January of 2017

30 March 2015 8:42 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Earlier this year a viral video introduced us to Vincent D'Onofrio's character in Jurassic World, and we definitely got the vibe that he could be some sort of villainous character in the summer blockbuster. Plus, let's not forget that he's playing Kingpin in Netflix's series adaptation of "Daredevil" from Marvel Studios. Now the actor has lined up another key bad guy role as Variety reports D'Onofrio will be giving Denzel Washington, Chris Pratt and Ethan Hawke some trouble in MGM and Sony's remake of The Magnificent Seven, which in itself was a remake of Akira Kurosawa's classic Seven Samurai. So who will he play? Specifics on D'Onofrio's character aren't available, but since the story follows seven gunslingers who protect an oppressed Mexican village from a group of outlaws, we're betting he's the leader of this band of criminals. D'Onofrio has a very haunting, unpredictable presence on the big screen, »

A New Attraction is Killing for Sport in New 'Jurassic World' Trailer

30 March 2015 8:14 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

This new Jurassic World movie is going to be an interesting one. The first movie in the franchise had us marveling at the visual wizardry as prehistoric dinosaurs came to life in John Hammond's (the late Richard Attenborough) Jurassic Park. Things got out of hand when Dennis Nedry decided he wanted to make a little money selling dino DNA. Now, the humans are causing problems again as they continue to play God by not only bringing us dinosaurs (despite the problems the last three times around), but by purposely creating a new breed of dinosaur, the Ultrakillosaurus and it is gobbling up everything in sight. Just below is the new Jurassic World trailer, give it a peek and let me know if you'll be in line when the park opens back up on June 12. yt id="yaWuNjHH2xA" width="500" Twenty-two years after the events of Jurassic Park, Isla Nublar »

'Jurassic World' TV Spot: The Park Is Open!

30 March 2015 12:03 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

A deadly new dinosaur is killing for sport in the new TV spot for Jurassic World. The video was shown during tonight's season finale of AMC's hit zombie series The Walking Dead. While Jurassic World will not feature any zombies, it will showcase dinosaurs fans have never seen before in the first three Jurassic Park movies.

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. The ensemble cast includes Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Vincent D'Onofrio, Irrfan Khan, Ty Simpkins, Nick Robinson, Omar Sy, Jake Johnson, Judy Greer and original Jurassic Park star B.D. Wong.

Jurassic World: new promo spot teases the park

29 March 2015 11:02 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The dinosaurs are on the attack again: here's a new clip of Jurassic World, starring Mr Chris Pratt...

There's not too much in the way of new footage in this brief promotional spot for the upcoming Jurassic World, but there is a slight nod of the head to how Jurassic Park III should ideally have ended at least.

The new movie, which arrives in cinemas on June 12th, stars Chris Pratt and has been directed by Safety Not Guaranteed's Colin Trevorrow. And we'd imagine you pretty much know the basics by now: the park is reopening, the beasties are on the loose once again, and a good couple of hours down at the local fleapit are promised.

We hope so, anyway. We could happily sit through a new Jurassic Park movie every year. Here's the new promotional spot, with that little bit of added footage...
