Even though women are swiftly swelling the ranks of directors in a wide range of genres, the superhero movie has remained out of reach. Lexi Alexander directed Punisher: War Zone, and Patty Jenkins was supposed to direct Thor: The Dark World for Marvel, but it didn’t pan out. That’s it. That’s all the women who have had a shot at a superhero film, which is pathetic. But according to a brief mention in THR, that’s about to change. In an article about the slew of superhero movies coming out in the next few years lies this sentence:
That is great news, and it puts DC ahead of Marvel in an important way. While Kevin Feige is hemming and hawing all over »

What would Jurassic Park be without that iconic poster design? It seems so simple: take a circle, slap a rectangle over the top and let a dinosaur skeleton chill in the open space that remains. But somehow, circle + rectangle + dino skeleton = instant iconicism. There’s power in that odd, street sign-shaped design — so much so that every subsequent Jurassic Park film has been content to slap the logo on a solid color background and call it a day as far as poster marketing goes. (Sure, the original had all of these incredible John Alvin poster designs, but there’s a reason they went unused- in the end, the minimalist tease is so much more effective). And while we’ve seen a hint of what Jurassic World‘s dinocircle would look like — back when the film was first announced, it came with a cold metal update on the original icon — that wasn’t nearly its final form.

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales: Javier Bardem is in early talks to star as a villainous character opposite Johnny Depp in Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales. Bardem would play a ghost pirate seeking revenge. The fifth installment of the series is scheduled to shoot in February, aiming for release in 2017. Bardem previously played villains to superb effect in the Coen brothers' No Country for Old Men and the James Bond adventure Skyfall (above). [The Wrap] Jurassic World: Director Colin Trevorrow debuted the first official poster for Jurassic World via social media, featuring the tag line: "The Park Is Open." It doesn't tell us anything new about the movie, which is heading to theaters on June 12, 2015, but the dark...

Good news everybody! Jurassic Park is open for business! Or at least it’s good news if you are a velociraptor waiting for a feast.
Director Colin Trevorrow revealed the Jurassic World poster on his Twitter page yesterday, following his trend of releasing images and tidbits from the production on his social media accounts. Trevorrow tweeted the poster with #TheParkIsOpen.
The theme of the poster nicely echoes the logo-based poster from 1993 which featured the original red and black Jurassic Park symbol. The new poster also reflects the plot of Jurassic World which is said to focus on the re-branding of John Hammond’s dinosaur theme park several years after the dinos ran amok with Drs. Grant, Sattler, and Malcolm. The plot is rumoured to be about park operators upping the ante for blasé visitors who have become accustomed to the dinosaurs. Of course, coming up with something new and exciting »

Manuel here bringing you a double dose of dino-related posters. Jurassic Park and Toy Story, two seminal early 90s smashes continue to make waves in 2014. This shouldn't be so surprising seeing as they both function as perfect metaphors for Hollywood, one premised on the ability to bring back to life the dead and forgotten, the other quite literally representing a world where our cherished toys get a big screen treatment.
Jurassic Park, as we know is headed for a splashy 2015 summer sequel. Word on Jurassic World has been quiet (give or take a couple of pics of Chris Pratt in a body-hugging Henley) but since we are only eight months away (!), it’s clear publicity for the film will start kicking into high gear. This is necessary as they’ll be busy dropping plot hints and opening dates and casting rumors for the inevitable sequel by the time the film is actually in theaters. »

For a long time, it almost seemed as though the next sequel to Jurassic Park would never happen. With gradually diminishing returns from the previous two entries into the franchise (The Lost World and Jurassic Park III), prospects for Jurassic World were not the rosiest. But the film is finally going to see the light of day come June 12, and we now have our first glimpse of the ad campaign that will accompany it.
The first Jurassic World poster looks pretty much like the previous posters for Jurassic Park and its sequels: the famous logo, this time stripped of its color, looming at us out of a dark background. With the effective and simple tagline “The Park Is Open,” the poster does what it sets out to: make us excited to get back into that park.
Like the poster, the premise of Jurassic World is similar, but different, to its predecessors. »

Director Colin Trevorrow released the first official poster for his highly anticipated film, Jurrasic World. He tweeted the poster design that you see above, which comes along with the simple tag line, "The Park is Open."
We still haven't seen a plot synopsis for the movie, but we do know that the terrifying new adventure is set 22 years after the nightmarish events of the original Jurassic Park.
If you're looking for some spoiler filled details, click here. You can also check out some previously released photos here.
The movie stars Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Ty Simpkins, Jake Johnson, Nick Robinson, Irrfan Khan, Vincent D'Onofrio, Bd Wong, Omar Sy, Judy Greer, Katie McGrath, Lauren Lapkus, and Andy Buckley. The film is set to be released on June 12th, 2015. Hopefully we'll get to see a trailer soon! »

The new poster for Jurassic World bets on simplicity, featuring an all too familiar logo with the tagline "The Park Is Open." It's a stark throwback, as many have mentioned, to the original poster for Jurassic Park. (Tagline: "An Adventure 65 Million Years in the Making.") Now, this is certainly an effective way to advertise: The poster is eerie with that Tyrannosaurus Rex seemingly emerging out of a mist, and the tagline makes a great hashtag, as director Colin Trevorrow proved. However, it might be well served by including some more Chris Pratt. Honestly, anything could be improved by including some more Chris Pratt. »

The movie tagline is perhaps an underappreciated art. We can usually acknowledge when certain ones don't work, but when they do, it's hard to articulate why, and the "Jurassic Park" series has had some mixed success as such. The first movie teased audiences with "Life Finds A Way," the sequel went with "Something Has Survived," while "Jurassic Park III" (unfortunately) declared "This Time It's Not Just A Walk In The Park!" But "Jurassic World" gets the franchise back on some good footing. The first teaser poster has arrived, and the message is simple and effective: The Park Is Open. And while we've seen a smattering of images from the movie featuring stars Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard, among others, there has yet to be a real look at the film's dinosaurs, so the classic logo will have to do in the interim. Are you sufficiently teased? Does this stoke »

Watch a trailer for Jurassic Park below: »
Though from the “does what it says on the tin” school of movie marketing, the release is sure to excite all those nosy Jurassic PARKers out there, leading to them swarming to the multiplexes like a pack of velociraptors on a stag night. Starring Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Vincent D’Onofrio and Omar Sy, the beast is unleashed next June.

Jurassic World is a sequel to the previous Jurassic Park films. Not much is know about the plot of Jurassic World but we do know that the story picks up years after the previous movies, with the park up and running until something goes wrong…
Jurassic World is set for release on June 12th 2015, with Colin Trevorrow (Safety Not Guaranteed) directing a cast that includes stars Chris Pratt (Guardians of the Galaxy), Bryce Dallas Howard (Terminator Salvation), Jake Johnson (New Girl), Vincent D’Onofrio (Law & Order: Criminal Intent), Omar Sy (X-Men: Days of Future Past), Bd Wong (Jurassic Park), Irrfan Khan (The Amazing Spider-Man), Judy Greer (Dawn of the Planet of the Apes), Nick Robinson (The Kings of Summer), and Lauren Lapkus (Orange is the New Black »

Jurassic Park 4 is getting closer - and the new poster invites you back to the park...
On June 12th next year, the long-mooted fourth film in the Jurassic Park series finally makes it to cinemas. Colin Trevorrow - of Safety Not Guaranteed vintage - is directing, and he's currently in post-production on the movie, overseeing the numerous CG beasties.
The general way that movie marketing now seems to work is that you get an initial poster for a film first, and then, perhaps a few days or a week or two down the line, you get the first trailer. Rumours suggest that the maiden Jurassic World trailer isn't far away, and we've certainly got a poster to be going on with.
It sticks firmly to the Jurassic Park formula, teasing the reopening of the world's most famous fictional theme park. Here's the poster, then, and we'll keep you posted with regards that trailer. »
Director Colin Trevorrow just unveiled a new poster for his upcoming "Jurassic World," a new installment in the "Jurassic Park" franchise. Check it out below. Regarding the story... The currently rumor is that a laboratory in the park will create dinosaurs by splicing in DNA from other animals. Eventually one of these hybrids will go out of control and terrorize the visitors. Meanwhile, the park officials will be forced to fight back using some of the other dinosaurs, which include a T-Rex and velociraptors. "Jurassic World" stars Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Ty Simpkins, Vincent D'Onofrio, Omar Sy, Bd Wong, Jake Johnson, Irrfan Khan, andIdris Elba. It's set to hit theaters on June 12th, 2015.

Hold on to your butts as you check out the new artwork for Jurassic World. The poster for the dinosaur-centric reboot captures the same classic look of the original film's poster. However, instead of that film's bold yellow-and-red logo, this one is gray and features a smoky background. The poster reveals the film's first tagline: "The park is open." Jurassic World director Colin Trevorrow (Safety Not Guaranteed) tweeted the poster Tuesday.

If you liked the simplicity of the poster for the original "Jurassic Park," good news: "Jurassic World" is basically recycling it. The T-Rex emblem strikes again (albeit in more subdued fashion) in the first official one-sheet for the Colin Trevorrow-directed sequel, the first installment in the blockbuster dino series since Joe Johnston's 2001 entry "Jurassic Park III" hit the screen. Accompanying the iconic image is the simple tagline "The Park Is Open" - not a particularly good sign for anyone familiar with the disastrous events of the first three movies. Check out the teaser poster below, then let us know what you think in the comments. "Jurassic World" hits theaters on June 12, 2015. »

Universal Studios has released a new Jurassic World poster that foreshadows something dark and ominous is coming our way. It also states "the park is open," reflecting the reopening of Jurassic Park as a revamped, more robust and supposedly more secure Jurassic World park.
The Jurassic World movie poster is completely void of color unlike the original film whose piercing logo was lined with red and yellow. The dinosaur depicted does appear identical to the same skeletal remains seen in the original film's logo.
By releasing a new Jurassic World logo, we could be drawing close to the arrival of our first teaser trailer and, hopefully, the first publicly released footage from the film. Universal had reportedly been test screening a trailer with lots of footage, but those accounts were only echoed online in a single, rambling YouTube video that was quickly pulled.
In other words, keep those eyes peeled »
The Jurassic Park franchise is returning to the big screen next Summer with Jurassic World, and while we've seen a few tease here and there, tonight we get our first official piece of marketing, in the form of a movie poster! Come inside to check it out.
While this first poster (which Director Colin Trevorrow just debuted on his Twitter) won't give much away, it is the first real marketing we've seen for this film (aside from those artistic Sdcc posters), which hopefully means more will be coming before too long:
Like I said, it's not much, it's a teaser poster, but it's very evocative of the first film's original poster. The tagline at the bottom is both neat and chilling, in that we know something horrible is going to go down. Earlier last week, a description for the film's first trailer hit the internet. While there's no telling how accurate it is, »

Jurassic World director Colin Trevorrow released the first official poster for next summer's highly-anticipated action-packed sequel, which comes with the tagline, "The Park Is Open." With the release of this one-sheet, can the first trailer be coming soon?
We reported last week that a trailer was recently screened for random moviegoers at a Regal Cinemas movie theater, with YouTube user Ivan Flores posting a detailed description of the footage. The video was later blocked by NBC Universal, which lead many to believe his description is accurate.
Production wrapped on the adventure back in August, and it should be only a matter of time before we see the first footage. It's worth noting that Universal Pictures has two upcoming movies hitting theaters, Ouija on October 24 and Dumb and Dumber To on November 14, so it's possible the trailer may be released then.
