Per Deadline, the Colin Trevorrow-directed feature is heading for an opening weekend somewhere between $100 million and $130 million, following a path in line with 2013’s Man of Steel. The highest opening weekend for a Jurassic Park film is currently The Lost World’s $72.1 million, which in 1997 was the highest grossing opening weekend of all time. World doesn’t feature any of the same principal characters »

Chris Pratt Is Already Apologizing for Anything Offensive He Might Say During Jurassic World Press Tour: ''I Am Just Dumb''

22 May 2015 7:40 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Chris Pratt is taking all the necessary precautions to have a smooth press tour. The actor hilariously took to his Facebook page tonight to write out a lengthy apology to fans. For what, you ask? Well, that's a very valid question, especially since Pratt hasn't actually done anything to be sorry for, but he might, and that's why he's saying sorry. The Jurassic World star basically wants to put it out there now that should he say anything that comes off offensive, even in the slightest, during his upcoming press tour for the flick, he didn't mean it.

Jurassic World Tracking For Massive $100M-$130M+ Opening; Plus New TV Spot & Featurette

22 May 2015 7:00 PM, PDT | | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

This June, Chris Pratt (Guardians Of The Galaxy) may have another massive hit on his hands as early tracking data for Universal's Jurassic World is indicating the highly anticipated dino sequel is currently on track for a $100M to $130M opening. This is more or less in line with Warner Bros.' Man Of Steel, which opened during the same weekend in 2013 to an impressive $116.6M domestically. Additionally, awareness for the fourth Jurassic Park installment is currently in the 90% range and unaided awareness for the film is much higher than Warner Bros.’ San Andreas, which stars Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson (Furious 7) and opens next weekend. Jurassic World doesn't arrive until June 12th, so this early tracking report is very good news for the film's box office prospects. Deadline adds that even though the box office is up about 16% when compared to last summer, Jurassic World may end up being »

Chris Pratt is giving some improv acting lessons, but after a heavy dose of Fireball whiskey he's not in his sharpest state. Pratt likens acting under the influence to "performing brain surgery with the blunt end of a hammer." After downing rounds and rounds of shots, he answers many deep questions humanity's greatest minds have pondered for centuries that up until now we've been unprepared to answer; like, how we would act if we saw a T-Rex  in a Jamba Juice? Well, the Jurassic World star gives an ingenuously simple answer. Just say, "Oh s--t, T-Rex.". Here's another one of the star's acting tips, "If you're playing a parent and your child asks you where »

22 May 2015 12:27 PM, PDT | Us Weekly | See recent Us Weekly news »

Being cast to step into an iconic role can be a great honor and career boost when done right (Daniel Craig as James Bond, anyone?), but there is always the risk of screwing things up.

And Chris Pratt definitely wants to avoid that in his career.  There have been rumors that Steven Spielberg, who directed all four Indiana Jones movies, wants the Jurassic World star to pick up the whip for the next film. While Pratt, 35, won’t [...] »

Chris Pratt added to the long list of reasons he's so lovable when he recently gushed about his other half, Anna Faris. In a candid interview with Elle, Chris talked about his marriage and what it was like when he first got to know Anna, who was married at the time they met.

22 May 2015 9:25 AM, PDT | CinemaNerdz | See recent CinemaNerdz news »

I’m back, dear readers. I had a great time on my vacation – I was across the pond in London, in case anyone was wondering – and I’ve returned to bring you more analysis of the latest and greatest movie trailers. As I mentioned, I’d written four Trailer Trashin’ columns to be released over the time I was gone, covering four of the biggest trailers that dropped in the later part of April. But I had some computer troubles with this last one, so I’m presenting it to you now. With that said, let’s take a look at the official global trailer for Jurassic World.

Premise: Twenty-two years after the events of Jurassic Park (1993), Isla Nublar, an island located off Central America’s Pacific Coast near Costa Rica, now features a fully functioning dinosaur theme park, Jurassic World, as originally envisioned by John Hammond – this new park »

Week in Review: The New York Times will no longer review every movie opening in NY

22 May 2015 8:52 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

In this day and age of film criticism, less of it is seemingly always a bad thing, and when a bastion like The New York Times announces they’re cutting back, it seems like a particularly painful blow. However, Variety Thursday obtained an email from Nyt Film Critic A. O. Scott explaining that the Times would no longer be reviewing every movie opening in New York, and the ironic truth is that this “new” policy may go a long way toward bettering the film coverage.

“Because of the increasing volume of new films released each year, the Times is no longer able to guarantee reviews of all New York theatrical releases,” Scott said in an email. He went on to add in a phone interview to Variety that the paper had already instated such a policy quietly earlier this year, and coyly confirmed as much on Twitter.

In 2013, the Times published nearly 900 film reviews. »
