‘Stryka’: Watch This Funny Space Heist Short Starring Rupert Friend In Futuristic Brooklyn

22 July 2016 12:10 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Emily Carmichael is back with a new sci-fi short film titled, “Stryka.” Starring Aimee Mullins and Rupert Friend, the comedy is set in futuristic Brooklyn and takes a look at the inner life of a reptile alien thief.

The film starts with Stryka (Mullins) in a therapy session, talking about her partner Callen (Friend) and how she is searching for more opportunities. She expresses that she’s been stealing and working with another thief and is too scared to tell him. As she starts planning a new scheme with her new partner in crime Peterson (John Behlmann), she finds herself torn between the two guys since they both want to execute their plans at the same time.

Jurassic World 2 Begins Production in February

21 July 2016 5:53 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

The sequel to one of 2015's biggest movies has an official production start date set in February of 2017!  Come inside for more info on Jurassic World 2!

In 2015, the Jurassic movie franchise revitalized the series with Jurassic World earning over an astounding 1.6 billion dollars, worldwide!  With those numbers, you better believe Universal was ready to greenlight a sequel in a heartbeat.  

June 22, 2018 will be when that sequel hits theaters.  That means new director Juan Antonio Bayona will need to start shooting soon.  Thanks to Jurassic Outpost, we know exactly when production will begin.

Jurassic World 2 will be returning to Hawaii on February 27, 2017 under the guise of a movie called 'Ancient Futures'.  The movie will also film in a handful of other areas, with one of them being in London's Pinewood Studios.  However, before you get the idea that this is going to be your run of the mill Jurassic movie, think again. »

‘Jurassic World 2’ to shoot in February 2017; Most of it in London

21 July 2016 4:22 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

There are a couple of website reporting that the sequel to last year’s Jurassic World is all set to start shooting in February 2017, and apart from a couple of weeks lensing in Hawaii, most of the sequel will end up being shot in London, England.

The word on the street (we’re looking at you Jurassic Outpost and you Reel News Hawaii), that some of the production will be based at Pinewood Studios, which is actually just outside of the capital, but other scenes could be shot elsewhere. The man at the helm this time around is J.A. Bayona, the guy responsible for The Impossible and the upcoming A Monster Calls.

Colin Trevorrow, who directed the last movie, will return to co-write the screenplay for this one. Obviously the plot is massively under wraps, but the filmmaker previously had this to say.

Speaking to Wired Magazine Trevorrow said “[It will not be] just »

"Jurassic World 2" Sets February Filming Date

21 July 2016 3:05 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Universal has already marked out a June 22nd 2018 release date for the "Jurassic World" follow-up, and now a new report has indicated when the dinosaur sequel will begin filming.

Jurassic Outpost says that the Juan Antonio Bayona-helmed film is currently targeting a February 27th 2017 start of production in Hawaii and is going by the code name of "Ancient Futures".

Part of the film is also expected to be shot at London's Pinewood Studios so it's unclear if the Hawaii leg of the shoot is before or after the UK stint. Most likely it's the kickoff though as the date falls in line with comments from producer Frank Marshall who recently confirmed pre-production is in full swing on the film with shooting to begin "sometime early next Spring."

Colin Trevorrow and Derek Connolly are penning the script for the film in which Bayona has had input. At last report the »

Jurassic World 2 will begin filming in Hawaii early next year

21 July 2016 2:40 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Details regarding the start of production on Jurassic World 2, the sequel to 2015’s monster hit Jurassic World, have recently been revealed over at Jurassic Outpost (in conjunction with Reel News Hawaii), a Jurassic Park fansite. The site claims that the movie will begin production in Hawaii on February 27th, 2017 and continue filming in London, most likely at Pinewood Studios.

Each Jurassic Park series entry has shot at least a few scenes in Hawaii, so it should come as no surprise that this is where the cast and crew are headed for the fifth film. Additionally, the working title of Ancient Futures will be used to conceal the project’s identity during its shoot.

Fans champing at the bit for Jurassic World 2, to hit theaters will have to do a bit of waiting, as the film isn’t due out until June 8th, 2018 in the UK and June 22nd, 2018 in the States. »

Jurassic World 2 To Begin Filming In Hawaii Come Early 2017

21 July 2016 2:16 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Jurassic World put Universal way ahead of every other studio last summer, trouncing previous domestic box office records and amassing a huge $1.7 billion worldwide gross. While its overwhelming success came as a surprise, the fact that a sequel was greenlit shortly thereafter did not. The wheels were set in motion for Jurassic World 2 one year ago, but it was only this January that executive producers Steven Spielberg and Colin Trevorrow installed Juan Antonio Bayona at the helm.

Clearly things are progressing well on the monster follow-up, as we’ve now got word that the movie is scheduled to commence filming in early 2017.

The report hails from Jurassic Outpost, a fansite dedicated to the dinosaur series, which revealed that the movie starts shooting on February 27, 2017 in Hawaii. The tropical idyll has served as the backdrop for most of the franchise instalments – standing in for Isla Nublar – but it’s expected to »

Jurassic World 2 Begins Shooting in Early 2017

21 July 2016 12:53 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Just one month after Universal's blockbuster Jurassic World hit theaters, the studio went ahead and announced a sequel, setting a June 22, 2018 release date for Jurassic World 2. Back in April, it was confirmed that J.A. Bayona (The Impossible, A Monster Calls) will replace Colin Trevorrow, but we haven't heard anything further about the sequel since then. Today we have a new report which claims that production is now slated to start in early 2017 in Hawaii.

A fan site called Jurassic Outpost broke the news that production will begin on February 27, 2017 in Hawaii, but it isn't clear if that will be the start of pre-production or principal photography itself. Jurassic World and the earlier Jurassic Park movies used Hawaii to shoot Isla Nublar scenes, but back in August, Jurassic World director Colin Trevorrow revealed that the story will involve "weaponized dinosaurs" while the story will be taken off the island.

Emily Carmichael and Kira Snyder writing Pacific Rim 2

21 July 2016 8:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Back in May of this year it was reported that Derek Connolly (Jurassic World) had been brought in by Legendary to pen the screenplay for Pacific Rim: Maelstrom, the follow-up to Guillermo del Toro’s 2013 sci-fi action blockbuster, which is set to explode into cinemas in February 2018.

Well, in an interview over at Ars Technica, indie filmmaker Emily Carmichael (Stryka) has revealed that director Steven DeKnight (Daredevil) has also enlisted her services for the sequel, with Carmichael said to be co-writing the script with Kira Snyder (The 100).

“He told me I was hired to help provide banter, warmth and cleverness,” states Carmichael. “For me the most important thing about a kaiju that there is one moment in the fight where you really feel how big it is. The correct size for a kaiju is bigger than you ever thought possible. I have been writing action sequences my whole life »

Mattel Wins ‘Jurassic World’ Toy License

19 July 2016 8:38 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Mattel has been awarded the worldwide master toy license for Universal’s “Jurassic World” franchise, starting next July.

Hasbro had been the master licensee for the rebooted franchise, which starred Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard, generated $1.67 billion at the worldwide box office last summer. The untitled sequel, which will be the fifth in the franchise, has been set for release on June 22, 2018.

Hasbro Chief Executive Brian Goldner disclosed Monday as part of his discussion of second-quarter earnings that his company would  lose the Jurassic license next year because Hasbro and Universal could not agree on renewal terms.

Mattel said Tuesday it will design, produce and bring to market a wide variety of toys and consumer products inspired by the franchise and its feature films, which date back to 1993.

Boyz n the Hood and The Importance of Supporting Diverse New Filmmakers

12 July 2016 11:08 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

What we can learn from John Singleton’s feature debut 25 years after its historic release.Columbia Pictures

Twenty-five years ago today the film Boyz n the Hood was released into American theaters to critical and commercial success. Written and directed by John Singleton, then a 23-year-old first-time filmmaker freshly graduated from USC film school, this devastatingly powerful drama chronicles the struggles of black life against a backdrop of urban violence and racial inequality in South Central Los Angeles. The success of Boyz ushered in a new wave of black American cinema, featuring superior performances by Laurence Fishburne and Angela Bassett, and launching the careers of Cuba Gooding Jr., Morris Chestnut, Ice Cube, Nia Long, and Regina King. A quarter century since its momentous debut, Boyz prevails as a reminder of the importance of supporting new and diverse filmmakers in telling their unique and oftentimes personal stories.

Sigourney Weaver Explains How Neill Blomkamp’s ‘Alien’ Sequel Fits Into Canon

It’s a pretty exciting time to be an “Alien” fan. Not only is Ridley Scott currently in production on “Alien: Covenant” (which, if we have our facts correct, is an “Prometheus” sequel/”Alien” prequel), but Neill Blomkamp’s slow-moving sequel continues to take shape with tantalizing tidbits from the cast and crew. Speaking to Entertainment Weekly about the 30th anniversary “Aliens” celebration set for Comic-Con this month, the one and only Sigourney Weaver confirmed an important detail about the continuity of Blomkamp’s fifth installment.

‘The Bfg’ Flops: Has Steven Spielberg Lost His Blockbuster Touch?

3 July 2016 11:29 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

In 1975, Steven Spielberg ushered in the modern blockbuster era when “Jaws” terrified audiences and smashed box office records.

It was a time when American directors were offering up smaller, more intimate looks at crime, politics and society, such as “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest” and “Dog Day Afternoon,” two of the year’s other big hits. But Spielberg went in the opposite direction. He was a maximalist. His work promised spectacle, of the kind that needed to be enjoyed on the big screen.

Over the ensuing decades, no director has maintained a firmer grasp of popular tastes. “Raiders of the Lost Ark,” “E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial”  and “Jurassic Park” were popcorn movie totems for a generation of film lovers and Spielberg became synonymous with summer blockbuster season.

“If you ask anyone across the country or around the world to name a director, he’s at the top of the list, »

Star Wars 8 Wraps in Late July

2 July 2016 4:20 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

By the end of this month, three new Star Wars movies will have officially been completed since Disney bought LucasFilm way back in 2012. That's not a bad track record. We still have a few more months to go before Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is in theaters this Christmas. And Star Wars: Episode VIII won't make its big debut for another year and a half. But according to star Mark Hamill, the next chapter in the Skywalker family saga is on the verge of calling it a day.

Way back in April, director Rian Johnson announced that production was halfway through while sharing a couple of black and white photos from the set. Today, Luke Skywalker himself, Mark Hamill, used Twitter to officially announce the wrap date. He had this to say.

"It wraps on Friday July 22nd 2016 #LooseLipsSinkStarships #W8ForVIII #DontBeAHomer #PatienceMyPadawans #Rogue1Sooner"

Thoughts I Had... First Look at "The Book of Henry"

28 June 2016 7:00 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Chris here with a first official image. Let's try not to hold Jurassic World's flatness against director Colin Trevorrow. While he may be the current whipping boy for the internet's derision at indie directors making the abrupt transition into franchise entertainments, his debut Safety Not Guaranteed had the charms and spunk to hint at a career making heartwarming fare. And wouldn't you know, that's exactly what he's got planned for this fall's The Book of Henry.

The family drama opens this September curiously right after the Toronto Film Festival wraps up. Here's the first image from the film, featuring child stars Jaeden Leiberher (St Vincent) and Jacob Tremblay (Room):

Some thoughts:

Jaeden Leiberher is still holding on to those Midnight Special goggles? Colin Trevorrow is slated to direct Star Wars: Episode IX, which makes notorious uberfan Tremblay just one degree removed from the franchise. It's been said ad nauseum, »
