Box-Office ‘Jurassic World’ Has The Most Teeth; ‘Genisys’ Posts Worst Opening Of The ‘Terminator’ Franchise

10 hours ago | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

We took last weekend off, but to briefly recap: despite tracking reports that suggested “Ted 2” was going to open to around $55 million, the Seth McFarlane comedy sequel disappointed, grossing almost 40% less than the original did on its debut weekend in 2012. Instead, “Jurassic World” took the #1 spot, and that trend continues for the fourth week in a row, though it was a tight race with Pixar’s “Inside Out,” which wasn’t far behind. The behemoth that is Universal’s dinosaur franchise isn’t showing any signs of slowing down. At $558 million in North America, “Jurassic World” is now the highest grossing film of the summer and the fourth highest domestic grossing film ever. The movie is potentially on track to surpass “The Avengers” ($623 million, though James Cameron’s records are safe).

Jurassic World becomes the fifth-biggest movie of all time at the worldwide box office

11 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Univeral Pictures’ Jurassic World has pushed its worldwide gross to $1.385 billion in its fourth weekend, overtaking Frozen ($1.274 billion), Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2 ($1.341 billion) and Avengers: Age of Ultron ($1.383 billion) to climb to fifth in the list of the highest grossing movies of all time.

Jurassic World now sits behind fellow Universal release Furious 7, which has pulled in $1.511 billion and is currently the highest grossing movie of the year, although the dino sequel will surely have something to say about that in the coming weeks. As of course will Star Wars: The Force Awakens this December.

Box Office: ‘Inside Out’ Serves Up July 4th Fireworks Over ‘Terminator,’ ‘Magic Mike Xxl’

15 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Inside Out” delivered the firepower at the five-day holiday weekend box office as it finished in first ahead of “Jurassic World” and new entries “Terminator: Genisys” and “Magic Mike Xxl.”

In a tight race, Disney-Pixar’s animated comedy pulled in an estimated $45.3 million in the U.S. over the five days — giving it $246.2 million stateside in its third week at 4,158 locations. “Inside Out,” with Amy Poehler, Mindy Kaling, Phyllis Smith, Lewis Black and Bill Hader voicing the emotions of an 11-year-old girl, is showing impressive staying power at multiplexes.

Universal’s fourth weekend of “Jurassic World” remained a solid draw, three weeks after its record-setting opening. The dino thriller, starring Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard, stomped its way to $43.8 million at 3,737 screens and ranks as the fourth-highest domestic grosser of all time with $568.2 million.

For the three days covering Friday through Sunday, “Jurassic World” has the edge on »

Box Office: ‘Inside Out’ Outshines ‘Magic Mike,’ ‘Terminator’ Sequels

4 July 2015 8:20 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Inside Out” is leading the holiday weekend box office, pacing firmly ahead of new releases “Terminator Genisys” and “Magic Mike Xxl.”

The Disney-Pixar animated pic pulled in $12.5 million on Friday, bringing its cumulative haul to $228 million Stateside in its third week of competition. Amy Poehler, Mindy Kaling and Bill Hader voice the emotions of an 11-year-old girl in the family film, which is playing in 4,158 locations.

Close behind is another hefty holdover: “Jurassic World.” The dinosaur actioner, starring Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard, logged $11.8 million in Friday grosses across 3,737 screens. It will probably add another $15 million-$20 million to its cumulative gross before the weekend is over, pushing the Universal release farther past its already-crossed $500 million mark.

Terminator Genisys” managed $10.6 million in Friday receipts on 3,758 screens, good for third place. The fourth installment in the dystopian robot series, which stars Emilia Clarke and Arnold Schwarzenegger, is expected to finish at $43 million for the five-day weekend, »

Week in Review: Robert Zemeckis says a ‘Back to the Future’ remake will never happen

3 July 2015 7:49 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Back to the Future is having its 30th Anniversary this month, and the film is on such a high in 2015 as one of simply the most beloved, classic, and near perfect blockbusters so rare today. It has something to do with the fact that the sequel had a portion set in today’s 2015 and even got a few of those predictions correct (still holding out for that Cubs World Series though). But it also has to do with the fact that as we’ve turned every started reading every show and movie as though it were filled with all the little clues and Easter Eggs of Lost, we’ve come to realize just how well constructed a screenplay Back to the Future truly is.

So it seems like now would be a great time to talk remake. Think about it: 2015 movie in which a new Marty McFly with a Justin Bieber »

Chris Pratt predicted his Jurassic World role in 2010 while he worked on Parks & Rec

3 July 2015 6:31 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Chris Pratt - raptor wrangler, assistant to Parks Director, owner of an uncanny Towie accent and now it seems, a psychic.

A new video has emerged which shows how the Jurassic World actor seemingly predicted his role in the summer blockbuster - years before winning it.

In a behind-the-scenes clip from 2009/10 on the DVD bonus features of Parks & Recreation Season 2, Pratt jokes that he's on the phone to Steven Spielberg who will have to wait for an answer on Jurassic Park 4:

Reading aloud as he types out a text to the director, Pratt says: "Sorry Steven, I was asked by Parks & Rec/NBC to do behind the scenes.

"Which is to say, everyone else was asked and said no.

"But I have no shame as you know by the endless gift baskets. I'll have to get back to you later about Jurassic Park 4."

Ask Alan, Episode 11: Which TV star is poised for a Chris Pratt-like movie breakout?

3 July 2015 1:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Happy Independence Day weekend, everybody! To celebrate (and also because it's been two weeks since the last one), it's time for another installment of Ask Alan, where I take your questions about this thing we call TV.  In this week's episode, I take questions about what show has the biggest quality gap between its best and worst episodes, try to predict which TV actor might follow Chris Pratt into movie stardom (while somehow failing to say the words "Tatiana Maslany," because I am dumb), and try to rank the "Mad Men" seasons in order of preference. As always, you can send questions — the more concisely-worded, the better — to »

Chris Pratt Predicted Jurassic World Role in 2010: Watch the Tbt Video!

2 July 2015 12:07 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Chris Pratt is a hunk, talented actor and now he can see into the future! Back in 2010 Pratt shared a glimpse of his future. The 36-year-old actor recorded a video for a Parks and Recreation behind-the-scenes look where he predicted that he would be in the fourth installment of the Jurassic Park series.  In the video he texts his alleged buddy Steven Spielberg, "Sorry Steven, was asked by Parks and Recs/NBC to do behind the scenes, which is to say everyone else was asked and said no. But, I have no shame, as you know by the endless gift baskets. I'll have to get back to you later about Jurassic Park 4." Pratt was a bit off with the title, but we'll give it to him »

Watch: 'Jurassic World' Trailer Spoof Takes Fan-Made Content To A New Level

Read More: Here's the Problem with the Success of 'Jurassic World' Many of the fan-made "Jurassic World" trailers are videos with scenes from other films spliced together, others are edited compilations of the film's official trailers, but this latest contribution isn't quite like the rest.  Popular Korean YouTuber Hozzah2 stars in a recently uploaded rendition of the "Jurassic World" trailer, a parody that features some pretty innovative swap-ins for the film's $150 million dinosaurs and more importantly, a very convincing Chris Pratt impression. The remake plays simultaneously with the original trailer and its audio in the split screen video above. Check it out, you'll never notice the difference.  Read More: Listen: 1-Hour Talk With Colin Trevorrow And Chris Pratt About 'Jurassic World,' Subverting Expectations, And More »

'Ant-Man' Cast has Advice for the New Spider-Man

2 July 2015 6:31 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Marvel is in Atlanta right now about half-way through filming Captain America: Civil War, but talk as of right now isn't about Captain America. The talk isn't even about Robert Downey Jr. co-starring in the film as Iron Man. Nope, the talk is all about Tom Holland who was just cast as Peter Parker aka Spider-Man. We don't know exactly how much of a role Spider-Man plays in Civil War, but we know this will be the first time we see the character in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. As a result, all eyes are going to be on Tom Holland, and IGN spoke to the cast of Marvel's Ant-Man to see if they might have some advice for him. Michael Pena, who plays Luis in the film, says, "I think it's just, like, being relatable. I think Tobey Maguire did an absolutely fantastic job where he just played like a »

Is Chris Pratt Psychic? ‘Jurassic World’ Star Predicted His Role In 2010

1 July 2015 7:48 PM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

Ok, maybe there really is some truth in the idea that if you put it out there to the universe it will happen. In 2010, Chris Pratt was playing Andy Dwyer in NBC’s Parks And Recreation. While recording a behind-the-scenes video extra for the show’s DVD version, he made a joke about getting a text from Steven Spielberg, as you can see in the video here. “Man, I just got a text message,” Pratt says, as he looks down at his phone. “From Steven Spielberg.

Watch: Chris Pratt Predicted His ‘Jurassic World’ Role Back in 2010

1 July 2015 4:55 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

In addition to the enviable distinction of starring in the film with the biggest opening weekend of all time, “Jurassic World’s” Chris Pratt may also be psychic.

Back in 2010, the actor — who was appearing in NBC’s “Parks and Recreation” at the time — made a seemingly throwaway joke about getting a text from “Jurassic Park” director Steven Spielberg about a role in the franchise while he was filming a behind-the-scenes DVD extra for the comedy series.

“I just got a text message… it’s from Steven Spielberg. God, so annoying,” Pratt quipped. “‘I’ll have to get back to you later about ‘Jurassic Park 4.'”

Fast forward to 2015, and said film — after undergoing a name change — is now a box office smash, thanks in part to Pratt’s own charisma.

“He’s the modern action hero,” Paul Dergarabedian, senior media analyst at Rentrak, told Variety after the film’s debut. »

Chris Pratt's 'SNL' Jason Statham Impression Is Really Tasty - MTV

It’s been over half a year since Chris Pratt hosted the Season 40 premiere of “Saturday Night Live,” but the episode is still giving us triceratops doo-sized drops of gold. The latest nugget to fall into our laps is this: a “Cut For Time” short video Pratt did wherein he impersonated Jason Statham making a commercial for his line of flat steaks — called, get this, Jason Steakums. Which are made of 100% Cow Face, naturally. . »

The Time Steven Spielberg Wrote a Fan Letter to Dwayne Johnson

30 June 2015 6:00 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

Chris Pratt may be one of the fan favorites to take over the role of Indiana Jones, if such a re-casting ever happens. But is he Steven Spielberg's first choice? Or might the director of all four existing installments of the Indy franchise prefer someone larger, more athletic, more charismatic? Dwayne Johnson does not have a lot in common with the original Jones, played by Harrison Ford, but why should a reboot be anything like its predecessor? Johnson can cook up something new, and Spielberg already seems to have a taste for what the former pro wrestler has to offer.  We know Spielberg is an admirer of Johnson's because Johnson posted a photo of himself to Instagram a couple months ago reading a fan letter from the filmmaker. Here's what it said, as revealed...

‘Jurassic World’ Gets Drug-Fueled Parody From TruTV’s ‘Friends of the People’ (Exclusive Video)

Move over Chris Pratt — twin sketch comics Kenny and Keith Lucas are jumping into the dino game. Together with TruTV’s other “Friends of the People,” the Lucas Brothers introduce the world to “Jurassic Narc,” a raptor (or is he a T-Rex?) cop who goes undercover to infiltrate the drug game. The skit kicks off with one of the drug-dealing twins holding a gun on three potential snitches, one of which is a dinosaur. The narc is actually pretty easy to spot, based on clues that include a gigantic lost tooth/talon near the swiped stash. Plus, the now-extinct creature »
