It's looking increasingly like Dwayne Johnson is taking on Shazam for Warner Bros and DC...
In an interview posted earlier in the week, he all but revealed that he was set to play Shazam for DC and Warner Bros. And whilst he's still not 100% officially confirmed that, he has confirmed to The Today Show in th Us that the thus-far unnamed movie "is going to happen".
He added that "I've been dying to announce it by the way. We still have to find the right writer. We're having two, three takes right now", adding that he's "very excited about it". "I've been waiting a long time for this and so have the fans by the way", he teased.

Timed to the release of their self-titled debut album, 5 Seconds of Summer stopped by The Today Show today to give fans a more-than-five-second sample of their new album.
Surrounded by screaming teenage girls, the band chatted with Matt Lauer about how far they’ve come from their first gig (which was in a room with 11 people) to play in the middle of Rockefeller Plaza. As always, they were affable, charmingly Austrailian, and almost impossible to hear over the high-pitched cheers of their fans.
The performance included both the band’s earworm hit “She Looks So Perfect”:
And “Amnesia”: »

We’re having two, three takes right now. But I’m very excited about it. It’s going to be great. I’ve been waiting a long time for this and so have the fans, by the way.” Watch the video below!

Oscar Pistorius was involved in a heated verbal fight with an angry man over the weekend. During a night out at VIP Nightclub Sandton in Johannesburg, South Africa on Saturday, the Olympian, who's currently on trial for the murder of his girlfriend Reeva Steencamp, got into a war of words with one rowdy club-goer. "We can confirm that Oscar was at the said venue [VIP Rooms, Sandton] with one of his cousins," Pistorius' rep Annalise Burgess told NBC News today. "They sat in a quiet booth in the VIP section when they were approached by an individual who has now been identified as [Jared] Mortimer."

After a couple quick features from "The Today Show" gave us a look behind the scenes of Jurassic World, showing off some of the full operational theme park that people have been attending for years, now we get a different look at the kind of attractions that have been available at the park. The Jurassic Park fan Twitter account JurassicP2K15 (via ComingSoon) got ahold of an official brochure of the park from the set of the film currently in production down in New Orleans, and while it doesn't show off any of the dinosaurs, there's a map of the park, a list of the dinosaurs they've bred, and of course some product placement. Look! Here's some images of the brochure from the theme park in Colin Trevorrow's Jurassic World: Jurassic World is directed by Colin Trevorrow (Safety Not Guaranteed), who rewrote the script with Derek Connolly from »

NBC's The Today Show revealed the first behind-the-scenes footage of Jurassic World this morning, and while it doesn't contain a ton of juicy footage, it is our first look at the cast and crew talking about the highly anticipated movie. We get to see director Colin Trevorrow approving a shot where a giant slab of meat hangs in the jungle, presumably to lure in some hungry dinos, and talking about Steven Spielberg's involvement. Plus, we also get to hear Chris Pratt explain the plot in simple, spoiler-free terms, hear Bryce Dallas Howard's rather infectious laugh, and see kid stars Nick Robinson and Ty Simpkins do their best screams. Perhaps the best part about The Today Show's visit to the New Orleans set, however, is the tour through the theme...

21 years ago, Jurassic Park showed us the story of humans trying to play God, and failing miserably in the process. In the latest sequel, Jurassic World, that whole playing God racket seems to be working out quite well. So well that the powers that be decide to push things a little further. Far enough that danger once more revisits the place where people and dinosaurs can play the deadliest game of hide and go seek. After months of buzzing about casting, shooting locations, and even signing a composer onto the film, Jurassic World has given the media their first taste of its recent shoot in New Orleans. What you're about to see is a pretty neat look at what John Hammond's dream looks like as a reality. Naturally, our first look comes from The Today Show and The Hollywood Reporter grabbed the scoop direct from the source. Two videos »
Today, the NBC's The Today Show went to the set of Universal's upcoming blockbuster Jurassic World (corporate synergy!), and spoke with the film's stars. The movie takes place 22 years after Jurassic Park and is set on a fully functional park on Isla Nublar. As star Chris Pratt explains, the park's revenues are declining, so they bring in a new attraction, "and it doesn't go well." It's kind of cool that the movie is willing to acknowledge that humanity could come up with a miracle like bringing dinosaurs back from extinction, but eventually we'd all get bored with them. Hit the jump to check out interview with Pratt, co-stars Bryce Dallas Howard, Nick Robinson, Ty Simpkins, and, director Colin Trevorrow, also to get a brief look at the set. The film also stars Vincent D’Onofrio, Irrfan Khan, Jake Johnson, Omar Sy, and Judy Greer. Jurassic World opens June 12, 2015. Via Today. »

Director Colin Trevorrow boldly admitted that some of the plot rumors about Jurassic World were true when some information leaked online recently. And now we get to check out some of the fully functional theme park from where the sequel's title is derived. "The Today Show" was given access to the set where the reporter spoke to Trevorrow, along with stars Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Ty Simpkins and Nick Robinson. We don't really see them doing much else beyond what has been revealed in first look photos online, but we do get to see some of the theme park, including dinosaur strollers. Plus, Pratt teases the new attraction used to get theme park goers interested again, before everything goes wrong. Watch it! Here's "The Today Show" segment on Colin Trevorrow's Jurassic World from NBC: Jurassic World is directed by Colin Trevorrow (Safety Not Guaranteed), who rewrote the script »

No pants, no problem! The Today show co-host Matt Lauer bore some extra skin in a leggy shorts suit on his talk show this morning. But don't get too excited about the 56-year-old's new style—Lauer was just being a good sport by modeling the latest trend in menswear. Along with Laurer, co-host Willie Geist showed off Pitbull's rolled-up white pants from the World Cup Opening Ceremony. And we think co-host Al Roker got off way too easy sporting the sneakers-and-suits trend a la Justin Timberlake. Let's rewind to Lauer's thigh-friendly ensemble—the formal shorts suit was first popularized by Pharrell Williams back in 2012 when he wore a camo version, and again in 2014 when the »

Mary wasn't actually played by one girl, she was played by twin sisters Lisa Blair and Michelle Blair Ontonovich. The duo appeared on The Today Show this morning (June 16), 27 years after starring in the comedy classic.
Neither sister followed up the movie with a career in Hollywood. Lisa works in customer services and Michelle, who works in insurance, is now a mother to her own baby, five-month-old Jacob.
"At first, when we were little, it wasn't a big deal to us at all," said Michelle. "I think it was when we became teenagers, people started coming up to us a lot more. Asking us for our autographs and everything."
The sisters' mum Geriann described »

The Today show co-host took part in a Q&A with former co-anchor Meredith Vieira, and also interacted with fans of the NBC morning program.

Later this week, John Green‘s beloved Ya new classic, “The Fault in Our Stars,” will hit movie theaters in the form of a cinematic adaptation, appropriately titled The Fault in Our Stars. The film’s title has already caused plenty of tongue-twisting trouble (just this morning, The Today Show‘s Al Roker referred to it as “The Fault in the Stars” without missing a beat or issuing any kind of correction, bless his heart). The film’s relatively heavy subject matter — it follows a pair of teenagers, played by Shailene Woodley and Ansel Elgort, who meet and fall in love in a support group for kids who have cancer — means that it should come with a certain level of respect. This isn’t the kind of film that you make fun of, that’s just bad manners and bad karma, but its unwieldy title isn’t helping matters. Even more serious? Green »
