Late 1984 saw two killer robot movies make their debut in Us cinemas. You've probably heard of the first one, released in October: The Terminator, the film that launched the career of James Cameron and cemented Arnold Schwarzenegger's status as a movie star.
The second was Runaway, another sci-fi thriller that, in theory, could have been the bigger hit. It starred Tom Selleck and Kiss singer-bassist Gene Simmons. It was written and directed by Michael Crichton, the director of the superb Westworld and writer of such best-selling novels as The Andromeda Strain and The Terminal Man, both adapted into great films. Six years after Runaway, Crichton would write Jurassic Park, a book that is still sending ripples through pop culture today.
Runaway ended up making about $7m in »
2012: a British man, playing an online slot machine for 30p on his laptop, is suddenly greeted by the sight of Christian Bale’s Batman and Heath Ledger’s Joker taking over his screen. Not crude 8-bit interpretations, but full HD actual animation from the Chris Nolan blockbuster – complete with voiceovers.
The player is urged to “take a side” and spin a virtual Wheel of Fortune. The prize at stake: almost £6 million.
The wheel spins, accompanied by the Joker’s maniacal “all it needs is a little push”, and the wheel comes to a random stop on the Mega Jackpot symbol. Hans Zimmer’s score has never seemed so dramatic. The jackpot is won and the player – known only as ‘John’ – goes away a multi-millionaire.
The prize won that day? »

Roger Corman and folks at The Asylum have a lot to answer for… That’s all I’m saying.
Sharknado. A film that proved you don’t have to have a lot of money or great CGI to pull in an audience on the Syfy channel. All you need is a giant creature and a ridiculous concept! Since the debut of That film, it seems like Syfy have greenlit any and all monster movie scripts that they’re sent. Hence we come to Lake Placid vs. Anaconda.
A few years ago the idea of these two monster-movie franchises coming together – especially given they weere originally made by two different studios (Lake Placid was a Fox production, whilst »

'Jurassic World' velociraptor kicks Iron Man ass at worldwide box office. 'Jurassic World' officially surpasses 'The Avengers' at worldwide box office Directed by Colin Trevorrow; starring Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, and Vincent D'Onofrio; and co-executive-produced by Steven Spielberg, Jurassic World has officially become the third biggest worldwide box office hit in history. The Jurassic Park sequel – or reboot, as it's basically the same story with a slightly different twist – has surpassed Marvel's Joss Whedon-directed all-star superhero flick The Avengers, which broke box office records back in 2012. Of course, "officially" just ain't what it used to be – like, in the days before The Fall. So you wisely ask, "But which movie has actually sold the most tickets?" After all, that's the true measure of a film's popularity. Well, that's a tough one to answer without the studios providing accurate, precise numbers. And that's not about to happen. It always »

Hold on to your butts, Jurassic Park fans. News broke on Thursday, July 23, that the dinosaur film franchise has another movie in the works. After the massive success of June's Jurassic World, Universal Pictures announced on Thursday that a Jurassic World sequel is in development — and it already has a release date. The adventure flick is expected to hit theaters on June 22, 2018. The news of the sequel comes just one day after Jurassic World unseated The Avengers to become the third-highest grossing movie of [...] »
Six weeks after its phenomenal opening (even saying it now, $500 million in a weekend sounds ridiculous), Universal have finally announced a sequel to Jurassic World, due for a June 2018 release. What took them so long? This film was an obvious hit from the moment the little I-Rex poked its eye out of the egg, and while it’s not exactly a cinematic masterpiece, it’s clearly tapped into an audience hunger for excitement and nostalgia. And dinosaurs.
It’s actually nice that Universal didn’t immediately confirm the sequel, and the three year gap means they have time to make something at least on a par with World – you don’t reboot a franchise only so you can make another Jurassic Park III. Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard are locked in for the sequel, so expect more cries of sexism and unbelievable action in heels.

A fifth Jurassic Park movie has been confirmed, as well as who's going to be returning to star in it...
Given that Jurassic World has become the third biggest grossest film of all time over the last few days, with a box office total in excess of $1.5bn, it's come as a surprise to absolutely nobody that Universal has finally confirmed its sequel.
Jurassic World 2, or Jurassic Park 5, or whatever it ends up being called, will arrive in cinemas on June 22nd 2018. And lest you be wondering whose story it's going to be picking up, it's already been confirmed that both Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard are returning for the new movie.
One of the biggest dangling threads in "Jurassic World" is the fate of Dr. Henry Wu. I thought it was fun casting to bring B.D. Wong back for "Jurassic World," but when I saw the film, I was surprised by just how much screen time they gave him and how clearly he's turned the corner from "bright guy hired by Hammond to do something fantastic and ethically questionable" to "mad scientist screwing his theme park bosses while coming up with some sinister applications for his work." What surprised me more was that they let him live. After all, "Jurassic World" is unafraid to kill even the most peripheral character in violent and preposterous manners, so why wouldn't they kill the man responsible for creating the just-plain-evil dinosaur that's running around eating everyone? The obvious answer is that they still need him, and sure enough, "Jurassic World" makes it clear that Dr. »

With word that Jurassic World is now the 3rd highest-grossing picture of all time, this announcement should come as no surprise, but is welcome none-the-less. A sequel to Jurassic Park has been slated for June 22, 2018. Set to return are Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard. As of now, Colin Treverrow will co-write the screenplay with Derek Connolly, but a director has yet to been chosen. Following The Lost... Read More »

Just one day after Jurassic World became the third highest-grossing movie of all time at the worldwide box office, Universal Pictures has officially announced that Jurassic World 2 is happening. Jurassic World stars Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard are set to reprise their roles as Owen Grady and Claire Dearing in the sequel. Jurassic World director Colin Trevorrow is returning to co-write the script with Derek Connolly, but Variety's report doesn't mention if he is directing the follow-up as well.
The news of Chris Pratt returning isn't particularly surprising, since the actor revealed last month that his contract has him locked in for more sequels. Colin Trevorrow stated in a May interview that he would still like to be involved in Jurassic World 2, but not as a director, so it's possible that Universal Pictures are currently searching for a new filmmaker to take the helm, as he writes the script with Derek Connolly. »
Now that it.s officially the third highest grossing movie of all time, having passed The Avengers, the fact that Jurassic World will be getting sequels is not a surprise. Hell, everyone assumed as much going in, and that was before it made more than $1.5 billion. But now we.re starting to get some details, including when we.ll see Jurassic World 2/Jurassic Park 5 and who is coming back for a few more rounds with the dinosaurs. The Wrap reports that both of the two primary stars of Jurassic World, Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard, will reunite for the sequel, which is now scheduled to be released on June 22, 2018. Steven Spielberg, who, of course, fathered the franchise back in 1993, will return in his new role as producer, as will Frank Marshall. However, there is no news on whether Jimmy Buffett will have another cameo this time around. We.ll »
Based on its big box office performance (earning over $1.5 billion worldwide thus far), it's no surprise that the Jurassic Park series will continue. Today, Universal officially set a release date for the sequel to Jurassic World and also announced the return of two cast members.

Given Jurassic World's record-breaking numbers (it's now the third-highest-grossing film in history), a sequel to the sequel was a given.

Both Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard will return for more flirting, while Colin Trevorrow will once again pen the script with Derek Connolly, but Trevorrow most likely won't be back to direct.

Having just passed "The Avengers" to land as the third highest grossing film of all time, it was only a matter of time until Universal made sequel plans for "Jurassic World." And the goods news is that they aren't rushing to get something out there, with the followup slated for three years from now. The studio has pegged June 22, 2018 for "Jurassic World: Whatever It Will Be Called." Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard will both return for the followup, with Steven Spielberg producing, but Colin Trevorrow likely won't be directing. “I didn’t want to lose that privilege and just become the 'Jurassic Park' guy for an entire decade,” he said about his decision to try other things. “Also, I poured everything I had into this. I laid it all out and you put a piece of your soul into these movies. I gave this one a lot. »
