Josh Gad and Daisy Ridley are currently in production on the upcoming remake of The Murder on the Orient Express. So, Gad decided to use his friendship (and proximity) to the Star Wars star to try and pry out a few coveted spoilers about Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi.
The efforts began in earnest in late January when he invited Ridley into his trailer on the pretense of discussing their film, and then ambushed her with Star Wars questions.

"I had an important question to ask you, I'm so sorry. I meant to call you last night, but it's about today's scene," Gad asks off-screen as he films his co-star on his phone. "Um, who are the last Jedi? Like, is it one [Jedi]? Or is it more than one?"

With production just about to get underway on Jurassic World 2, we are eagerly awaiting some sort of official announcement in terms of what to expect from the sequel plot wise. So far, Universal Pictures and the creative team behind the sequel have been tight-lipped when it comes to the details. However, it looks like some story elements for the Jurassic World sequel may have found their way online. And if they are legitimate, this promises to be the most insane entry in the franchise to date.
It must be noted that this information is not coming directly from the studio, so it should be taken as rumor for now. That said, a production listing for Jurassic World 2 was recently uncovered on My Entertainment World that provides a new logline for the movie. The information isn't necessarily official, but assuming there is any validity to it, we could be looking at government trained, »
James Cromwell, Ted Levine and Bd Wong have all climbed aboard Jurassic World 2 just in time, as according to a new report, filming on Juan Antonio Bayona’s creature feature is due to commence on February 27th.
That tidbit was buried in a filing from My Entertainment World (via Screen Rant), noting that Bayona’s upcoming sequel will lens in Hawaii, London and Brecon Beacons, Wales throughout the course of 2017. All three countries have surfaced as potential locations in the past, which lends credence to Mew’s unofficial synopsis. Included below, the alleged logline points to a scenario in which the government and InGen are in cahoots, leading to the creation of weaponized dinosaurs that have been engineered solely for “battle purposes.”

Gad – who is currently filming the Murder on the Orient Express remake with Ridley – has been peppering the British actress with questions about Star Wars: Episode VIII, even enlisting some other famous faces to help out.
In his first attempt – recorded and released on social media – Ridley came by Gad’s trailer clad in her robe.

Josh Gad is currently busy filming Murder on the Orient Express. It just so happens that the movie co-stars Daisy Ridley, who had her breakout in Star Wars: The Force Awakens and will be reprising her role as Rey in the upcoming Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Over the last month or so, Josh Gad has been posting videos to his Instagram in which he has been pestering Daisy Ridley for spoilers. Today, he has posted yet another video and truly outdone himself, having enlisted the help of quite a few very famous people to ask her questions she most definitely isn't allowed to answer.
In the Instagram video, Josh Gad starts off by apologizing to Daisy Ridley for what has been going on over the course of the last month or so and she looks like she really isn't having it. He then promises that he has »
It’s already February, and we have few to no details regarding the next entry of the Star Wars saga, Star Wars: The Last Jedi. For comparison, by November of 2014, we’d already seen a teaser of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, which eventually released on December 18, 2015. In short, we’re about four months past that moment. Admittedly, it’s all a bit expected. The Force Awakens was the first flick of the franchise since 2005, and a continuation of a story fans have been waiting for for thirty years. By comparison, The Last Jedi is merely the next chapter, and as such, Disney and Lucasfilm need to save their cash monies for a date closer to its release.
But that hasn’t stopped eager fans like us from trying to pull details from every little scrap of information the studio releases — just look at all the theories that have »

Ahead of its launch next June, production on Universal’s Jurassic World 2 is officially underway in London, and it appears those early rumors linking Bd Wong with Juan Antonio Bayona’s monstrous sequel were right all along.
Taking to Instagram over the course of the weekend, Wong all but confirmed that he’ll reprise the role of shady geneticist Dr. Henry Wu, who was last seen fleeing Isla Nublar by helicopter with a raft of dinosaur embryos. Towards the end of Colin Trevorrow’s franchise revival, we learned that Wu actually held an alliance with Vic Hoskins (Vincent D’Onofrio) that involved licensing InGen’s research to the military. And we all know how much Hoskins wanted to assimilate the Velociraptors onto the battlefield.
Can we expect to see Wong’s pioneering research stretch beyond the parameters of Costa Rica come 2018? It would certainly appear so. Besides, such a plot »

“Luke Skywalker has vanished” is the very first sentence to feature in the opening crawl of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. But there’s another, arguably more pertinent tidbit buried in that iconic yellow text, and that’s the moment when The Force Awakens refers to Luke Skywalker as the last Jedi. So far, so straightforward.
But now that Rian Johnson’s has officially been titled Star Wars: The Last Jedi, a great debate has raged online regarding whether the sequel’s moniker employs the term ‘Jedi’ in a singular or plural sense. Without any official word from Disney on the matter, speculation continues to swirl, but evidence is mounting that The Last Jedi is in fact plural. At least, that’s according to the series of international one-sheets that have now surfaced for Rian Johnson’s follow-up.

With production beginning soon in London on Universal's highly-anticipated Jurassic World 2, the cast continues to be filled out. Oscar nominated actor and Emmy winner James Cromwell has signed on for an unspecified role in this action-packed sequel. Much like all of the other new cast members, no details have been given for the character James Cromwell is playing, but he'll join Jurassic World stars Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard and Bd Wong, who return as Owen Grady, Claire Dearing and Dr. Henry Wu, respectively.
Earlier this week, producer Frank Marshall revealed a photo from his new office, hinting that production has begun on this sequel. While pre-production is likely still happening, The Hollywood Reporter reveals that principal photography won't actually start until later this month, although a specific date wasn't given quite yet. It remains to be seen how many more roles need to be filled out before filming actually begins. »
The studio is keeping details about Cromwell’s character information under wraps. “Jurassic World” generated $1.67 billion worldwide in 2015 — the fourth-best grosser of all time, trailing only “Avatar,” “Titanic” and “Star Wars: The Force Awakens.”

A few weeks ago, Jurassic World 2 director J.A. Bayona shared the first photo from the set of this highly-anticipated sequel, teasing that filming is about to begin soon. That wasn't exactly a surprise to some fans, since there had been reports that filming will start this February in London. While it hasn't been confirmed if cameras have started rolling or not, production is getting closer and closer to happening, as evidenced by a new photo from producer Frank Marshall.
Frank Marshall, who produced the 2015 blockbuster Jurassic World along with Steven Spielberg, took to Twitter to share a photo of his new London office. Alongside a poster of Jurassic World is a poster for the 1960 cult classic Dinosaurus!, along with a number of dinosaur toys on a shelf, setting the stage for this new sequel. This new image comes just hours after a new report surfaced that shed some potential light on the story. »
At least, that’s according to a Tweet from series producer Frank Marshall, who posted a photo from his HQ in London earlier this morning with the caption: “My office in London up and running [sic]. And so it begins…” The English capital is reportedly one of the locations earmarked by Universal, which has seemingly mapped out plans for filming to take place in Wales and Hawaii over the coming months. From what we understand, the cameras aren’t rolling just yet, but at the very least, this is a sure-fire sign that Universal has got the ball rolling on Jurassic World 2.

Pitched as the second entry into the studio’s rebooted trilogy, »

Jurassic World wound up really taking the world by surprise in 2015. People expected the movie to be big, but it was truly a monstrous smash hit and has really reinvigorated the Jurassic Park franchise. That said, it was a little hard for some to imagine where the story could go from there and even though Jurassic World 2 will start filming this month, plot details have been almost as non-existent as the prehistoric creatures at the center of the franchise. Now, thanks to a couple of newly purchased domain names, we have our first look at the potential plot for the upcoming Jurassic World sequel.
Recently, the folks over at the fan site Jurassic Outpost noticed that Universal purchased two new domain names that are very clearly related to Jurassic World 2; IslaNublarRescueMission.com and AllCreaturesHaveRights.com (as well as .org). While that may not seem like much, the domain names are pretty telling. »
With Guardians star Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard already locked in to return, Jurassic World 2 has spent the past few months amassing a stellar supporting cast as Universal prepares to fire up production on its 2018 sequel.
First up we had the two-fold casting coup of Rafe Spall (Prometheus) and Sherlock star Toby Jones, before the studio set sights on both Daniella Pineda and The Get Down breakout Justice Smith – DJ Dimitri Vegas is also said to be in the mix, though we’re still waiting for final confirmation on that one. And so, as the casting process begins to enter the homestretch, Variety brings word that Ted Levine has closed a deal to join Jurassic World 2 in a mystery role.
Best known for his chilling portrayal of Buffalo Bill in The Silence of the Lambs, Levine is an exciting addition to the sequel’s ensemble cast, and we’re »
