Twenty-two years after the original stormed the summer box office, its sequel, Jurassic World, proved that even after so many years, dinosaurs still rule the Earth. After an eventful summer, the Chris Pratt-starrer has grossed over $1.56 billion worldwide and is currently the third highest grossing film of all-time, which is where it will likely remain when it concludes its run later this year. Following the film's immense success, Universal Pictures announced a sequel set for June 22, 2018 with both Pratt & Bryce Dallas Howard confirmed to return, Colin Trevorrow & Derek Connolly penning the script, and Steven Spielberg & Frank Marshall back on as producers. Prior to Jurassic World's release, Trevorrow confirmed that, while he would not be returning to the director's chair for a sequel, he did plan on being involved in some capacity, which has now been revealed to be as a screenwriter. In a recent interview with Wired, Trevorrow »
This post contains mild spoilers for Jurassic World.
The biggest film of the year, and the third biggest film of all time, is Colin Trevorrow's Jurassic World. Its current worldwide box office total is a staggering $1.559bn, and it's still bringing in cash for Universal. There's the small matter of its disc release to come, too.
Colin Trevorrow won't be directing this time, but he and Derek Connolly are returning to write the next adventure. Chatting to Wired, he confirmed that "I know Steven [Spielberg] definitely wants to make several of these movies" and that the next movie will not be "just a bunch of »
While he won’t be back in the directors chair, Colin Trevorrow is currently gearing up to co-write the spit, alongside Derek Connolly, the sequel to this year’s colossal hit Jurassic World, due out in 2018. With both Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard, details of what the next bout of dino mayhem will have in store for us are unknown at this point, but speaking to Wired, Trevorrow teased some elements of the plot, which apparently shys away from the traditional theme park and island setting. “[It will not be] just a bunch of dinosaurs chasing people on a island. That’ll get old real fast....I feel like the idea that this isn’t always going to limited to theme parks, and there are applications for this science that reach far beyond entertainment. And when you look back at nuclear power and how that stared, the first instinct was to weaponise it »

I'm on record as someone that enjoyed Jurassic World for the spectacle of the thing. I'll also be the first to nod my head, agreeing with any complaint you may have, but I was still able to have a lot of fun watching it and if box office receipts mean anything, people are telling their friends they need to see it too as the film is now over $1.55 billion worldwide and the third highest grossing film both domestically and internationally, and it looks like it's going to come up just shy of besting Titanic for that second spot domestically. That's pretty amazing for a film so many enjoy trashing. What's curious about that, though, is whether or not they can manage to capture lightning in a bottle a second time because even as someone that had fun with this film, I have a hard time explaining its box office success. »

Shortly after Universal Pictures' summer blockbuster Jurassic World became the third highest-grossing movie of all time, the studio revealed the inevitable news that Jurassic World 2 is happening, setting a June 22, 2018 release date for the movie sequel. Jurassic World director Colin Trevorrow is coming back to co-write the screenplay for the sequel with Derek Connolly. While speaking with Wired, the filmmaker teased new details about the sequel, revealing that the story will take place off the island and address other applications for these dinosaurs.
"[It will not be] just a bunch of dinosaurs chasing people on an island. That'll get old real fast.

The Jurassic World sequel won't be arriving in cinemas until 2018, but we're already starting to get drip-fed a few morsels of information about what it might entail.
Remember Vincent D'Onofrio's character Hoskins talking about sending dinosaurs into war zones? It sounds a lot like Blue and her raptor crew might end up getting weaponised off-island.
Trevorrow told Wired of his thoughts on Jurassic World 2: "[It will not be] just a bunch of dinosaurs chasing people on an island. That'll get old real fast."

Jurassic World is the third biggest film of all time, and films that are that big get sequels – Like Avatar, the biggest film of all time, which is getting three sequels, or the fourth biggest film of all time, The Avengers, which got a sequel earlier this year. Note – The second biggest film of all time will definitely not be getting a sequel, though someone once tried. Anyway, we digress.
Jurassic World 2, or whatever they decideto call it, will definitely be heading to cinemas in 2018, and the Jurassic World director Colin Trevorrow has been talking up that sequel, which is co-writing, though not directing.
Seems it won’t be set in a theme park next time.

The release of Ant-Man marks the official end of Marvel's Phase 2 films. With Phase 3 set to kick off next Summer, we thought it'd be a great time to take a look at how the second Phase of the Marvel Universe did overall. Come inside to check out our thoughts!
The commercial success of the McU has proven that comic book films are here to stay. Audiences have enthusiastically embraced Disney’s films that bring their favorite comic book characters to the big screen. Phase 1 was proof of concept. It was possible to have several comic book character-based movies take place in the same universe. The original Avengers film was proof that audiences would enjoy seeing them working together to fight bad guys. Phase 2 is all about maintaining that trend while introducing new faces. Was Disney successful in accomplishing its goals? What can they do to improve Phase 3? This is a »

Yesterday, August, 1, marked the one-year anniversary of Guardians of the Galaxy hitting theaters. To celebrate the occasion, director James Gunn posted a heartfelt message on his Facebook page yesterday, where he thanked the fans for their ongoing support of his hit superhero movie. Take a look at the filmmaker's full statement below.
"One year ago today, Guardians of the Galaxy opened up in the U.S. and many places around the world. The movie massively over-performed that weekend, even by our own expectations, but what meant more to me is how much so many of you, no matter where you were from, took the story and the characters into your hearts. What meant more to me is that "We are Groot" became a rallying cry for unity among friends and families. What meant more to me is that you laughed at the dumb stuff I thought you'd miss, like "Cap'n's »
On the one-year anniversary of the film's Us release yesterday (August 1), Gunn wrote a heartfelt open letter to fans of the film thanking them for making "every failure" he's had "well worth it".

A year ago today, most of us laid eyes on what we might call a masterpiece. When Guardians of the Galaxy hit theaters August 1, 2014, we witnessed a visually stunning film that not only opened up a bigger story for the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but it also gave fans around the world a film that we could enjoy for many years to come! This film featured fan favorites such as Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Vin Diesel, Dave Bautista ,and Bradley Cooper who brought our comic book characters to life, while giving us one hell of a film in the process. Even though this film may have shocked some fans (because of its surprising success), it gave others memories that they will cherish forever. With that said, I will leave it to James Gunn, who personally wrote a heartfelt letter to the many Guardians of the Galaxy fans around the world. Fellow »
It’s impressive enough that most actors can go from role to role in quick succession. But the world likes to freak out when that transition is visible. With the release of the new boxing film Southpaw last weekend, the internet has been filled with videos and gifs of Jake Gyllenhaal’s transformation into a boxer. It took five months of training for Gyllenhaal to go from his skinny, un-muscled frame that we saw in Nightcrawler to his extremely toned and six-packed self in Southpaw. An impressive feat, but that doesn’t totally explain the complete awe and fascination. Sure, it is Jake Gyllenhaal we’re talking about. Attractive: yes. A talented actor: heck yes. So why are people really only talking about the physical transformation and not so much the mental?
Obviously this isn’t the first time people have fawned over an actor who has gone through such »

If you've ever dreamed about getting Chris Pratt's attention, we have some great news: the actor said the "sky's the limit" on the accolades he'll shower upon the lucky fan who wins his new competition. Chris took to Facebook on Friday to announce the contest, asking fans for help creating a new header for his page. No pressure or anything, but the winning design might be seen by the 2.2 million - and counting - people who follow him on Facebook. "Who's gonna get me the best one and have their name displayed for millions of people to see?" Chris wrote in his hilarious note. There's also a chance he might throw in a "free dinner at applebees." (No word on whether he would join you for a basket of ribs.) Hello friends and fans. I am in the market for a new header for my Fb page. I want to do a contest. »
All this back and forth about a possible "Ghostbusters" franchise beyond the upcoming reboot has gotten really confusing. It's dogs and cats living together -- mass hysteria! We know the Paul Feig movie with Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon, Leslie Jones, and Chris Hemsworth is now filming for a release next year, and there were rumors that a second movie was coming with a male cast (possibly including Channing Tatum and Chris Pratt). But that second movie may not really be happening. Unless it is happening? See if you can follow along...
We want to expand the Ghostbusters universe in ways that will include different films, TV shows, merchandise, all things that are part of modern filmed entertainment. This is a branded entertainment, a scary supernatural premise mixed with comedy. Paul Feig's film will be the first version of that, »

It looks like Ghostbusters isn't going to cross its streams any time soon, with the confirmation that only one film is in the works.
The internet has been abuzz in recent weeks with rumours of a male-focused reboot starring Chris Pratt and Channing Tatum, but a producer on Paul Feig's upcoming movie has dashed our hopes/quashed our fears.
Screenwriter Drew Pearce got fans excited »
Yesterday, we reported on a second possible new Ghostbusters film, that's been chatted about for a little while now. This is the one that Captain America: The Winter Soldier directors Joe and Anthony Russo were involved with, and that screenwriter Drew Pearce (Iron Man 3) had been working on. Furthermore, Channing Tatum and Chris Pratt had been linked with starring in the film.
In yesterday's update, Pearce revealed that he had come up with an idea for a Ghostbusters film, that would have a mixed gender team, and had a "gigantic bold idea" at the heart of it. Given his commitments to co-writing and co-directing upcoming Lego project The Billion Brick Race, Pearce also said that "I've only written a bible" for the new movie, and that he finished his work on the project »
Update: Original Ghostbusters director and continuing producer Ivan Reitman has now added his voice to that of Drew Pearce... in a slightly more forthright manner. "There has been a lot of excitement recently about what is happening with the Ghostbusters franchise," he tells Uproxx. "As the producer of the new Ghostbusters film, I feel the need to clarify. There is only one new Ghostbusters movie and that is the Paul Feig directed version coming next July, presently filming and going fantastically. The rest is just noise.”If you've been following the saga of the Ghostbusters rebootquel, you'll know that as well as the Paul Feig / Melissa McCarthy / Kristen Wiig incarnation, there's also been talk of another film, in a bigger-picture, Marvel-type connected universe stylee. Channing Tatum and Chris Pratt were both mentioned in connection with the project, although Tatum and Pratt have both said they're not doing it. Now, writer »
Director Paul Feig's Ghostbusters is currently in production, and fans will get to see an all-new team of spirit chasers as they try to save New York City next summer. There have also been rumors that a Ghostbusters Spinoff is in development, with Sony Pictures eyeing Channing Tatum and Chris Pratt to star. Screenwriter Drew Pearce revealed yesterday that he has "completed work" on the script for this new Ghostbusters adventure. But it sounds like that project isn't happening anytime soon. Producer Ivan Reitman issued a statement earlier today, confirming that the female-centric reboot is the only new Ghostbusters movie in the works.

Yesterday, word emerged about that long rumored other "Ghostbusters" movie, one that would potentially star Chris Pratt and Channing Tatum, and had the Russo Brothers involvement: it was very much real. Screenwriter Drew Pearce revealed in an interview he had written the Bible or guidelines for the potential movie, and that Pratt and Tatum were in mind as he put together his project, which he clarified would include both men and women. Some sites took this bit of intel to mean that Pratt and Tatum were definitely going to star in a new "Ghostbusters" movie and that it was a done deal. However, nothing could be further from the truth. It's a step in the development process, and franchise guide Ivan Reitman pretty much confirms this, saying that, for the moment, all eyes should just stay on next summer's female-driven reboot.

Months after he spoke at length about Sony’s plans for the Ghostbusters cinematic universe, Reitman has now sent an email around to us movie websites explaining that there is only one Ghostbusters in development, and it’s the one being directed by Paul Feig. What’s troubling about that is that Reitman and others, including scribe Drew Pearce, have directly contradicted this.
Reitman’s emailed statement reads:
There has been a lot of excitement recently about what is happening with the Ghostbusters franchise. As the producer of the new Ghostbusters film, I feel the need to clarify. There is only one new Ghostbusters movie and that is the Paul Feig directed version coming next July, presently filming and going fantastically. The rest is just noise. »
