As the summer winds to a close, I tend to look back at some of the activities I’ve done with my kids. Living in Ohio, I have access to one of the best zoos in the country, the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium. However, after a couple visits, it gets tiresome of looking at the same animals over and over again. Thanks to the heartbreaking documentary Blackfish, it’s not cool to visit Sea World any more (and the old Sea World of Ohio location fled the state for warmer temperatures years ago). Without these options, there are few opportunities to look at new and interesting animals. Having recently watched Jurassic Park, I found myself wishing there was a real-life dinosaur park where I could take the kids. Of course, it should be humanely run and not include any velociraptors running amok due to a greedy programmer shutting down park security. I »

The tale of two fragile and sensitive vampires, Adam (Tom Hiddleston) and Eve (Tilda Swinton), who have been lovers for centuries. Both are cultured intellectuals with an all-embracing passion for music, literature and science, who have evolved to a level where they no longer kill for sustenance, but still retain their innate wildness. Their love story has endured several centuries but their debauched idyll is threatened by the uninvited arrival of Eve’s carefree little sister Ava (Mia Wasikowska) who hasn’t yet learned to tame her wilder instincts. »

The actor has been coming to St John for nearly 20 years. But while he's obsessed with the place his greatest passion is reserved for his New Zealand vineyards
Sam Neill is an oenophile and vigneron: two words that strike cold terror into the Observer's bean-counters in advance of our lunch at St John in Clerkenwell. These fears are not allayed by the 66-year-old actor's rather jolly Twitter feed, which for the week before today's encounter has detailed the adventures of an assiduous bon vivant, matching food and fine wine in some of London's smartest restaurants. "Try to steer him towards the less expensive bottles," suggests my editor.
At the appointed hour, Neill bounds up the stairs to the dining room in the whitewashed one-time smokehouse. His hair is neatly parted at the side and a clipped moustache bristles: the effect is of a second world war officer on leave. As »

You may not be familiar with the late John Alvin’s name but you are more than likely familiar with his work. The incredibly talented artist was behind many of the most iconic film posters from the past few decades, from Et to Batman and Jurassic Park.
A new gorgeous book entitled The Art of John Alvin is packed with some of Alvin’s most impressive posters, designs and magnificent drawings, thanks to collaborative work with his wife Andrea and some others who have worked with him over the years.
Alvin’s career in poster-work began with Blazing Saddles in the 1970s but he did not stop there, going on to work on a variety of films, from Godfather Part III to The Goonies. Yet, despite the beauty of his posters, the real magic of this particular book lies with his other work. There are a couple of stunning portraits of Al Pacino, »

Starz has renewed its steamy Scotland-set drama Outlander for a second season, the network announced today. The new season will be based on Diana Gabaldon's second Outlander book, Dragonfly in Amber, which somehow has nothing to do with Jurassic Park. The series premiered last week to pretty decent ratings, but, perhaps more significantly, to a tremendous amount of chatter. This current first season is 16 episodes — in the tragic eight-now, eight-later format so beloved by cable — and the second installment will be at least 13 episodes, presumably broken up in the same manner. Prepare ye bagpipes. »

Show of hands… When you first saw the film, who absolutely thought Raiders Of The Lost Ark was the greatest thing on Earth? Me too. Let’s try this again. Show of hands… When you first saw the film, who thought there was nothing more awesome than Jurassic Park? Wow. Me too! Well, I’m not about to tell you this film equals either of those modern masterpieces, but what I will tell you is that Ragnarok is a film that succeeds, in part, because it incorporates the massive influence both of the previously mentioned films have had on modern cinema in a subtle, yet effective way that evokes those memories while maintaining its own vision.
Written by John Kare Raake and directed by Mikkel Braenne Sandemose, Ragnarok is the story of an archaeologist named Sigurd with family problems who stumbles onto something extraordinary while seeking answers to ancient questions through relics. »

“I’m the guy who asked my parents to get back in line at the Indiana Jones stunt show in Disneyland immediately after seeing it” is the thing I said to Mike Ryan after seeing Marvel Universe Live! at the Barclay’s Center last night. That was the statement I should have lead with when I explained why I wanted to see what everyone seems to describe as “Marvel on Ice without the Ice.”
I am the completest geek for things I love, I saw Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Coming Out Of Our Shells Tour at the Denver Coliseum. I’m the guy that wants to see all the stage shows at Universal Studios instead of going on the Jurassic Park Ride again. I’m the guy that took theater classes and learned about suspending people for Peter Pan and thinking: “This would be more fun if it were Spider-Man. »

Ever since Jurassic Park exploded into the imaginations of kids everywhere in ‘93, there hasn’t been another film since that has sparked the same interest in our large, scaley (or feathery) friends, the dinosaurs. Not even Spielberg himself with Jp’s sequel, The Lost World, could match the same fervent love for Raptors and Tyrannosaurs that the original inspired. That is, until now; Dinosaur 13, an incredible new documentary, comes the closest to capturing the same childlike wonder and awe we feel when coming in contact with a creature from an almost entirely different planet, sixty-five millions years into the past – even if that contact is divided by a cinema screen. And it’s all because of a bunch of bones. Let’s go back in time – but not that far…

One of the complaints many people have about the pop culture poster scene is that the same handful of movies keep getting posters. It’s a valid argument. Massively popular films like Back to the Future, Jurassic Park, The Big Lebowski and Kill Bill do have infinitely more posters than their smaller counterparts. The reasons, though, […]

The world is just, quite simply, not nearly as funny a place now as it was just a few hours ago, before the tragic death of legendary comedian and actor Robin Williams. For nearly 40 years, the man kept us in stitches in ways only he could, with an impeccable delivery and an unmistakable charm that is often mimicked but never equaled.
As the world mourns this comedy legend, we take a look back at our 16 favorite Robin Williams performances, some in classics that are beloved the world over, and some in overlooked and/or underrated gems that deserve to be noticed.
While some actors spend years paying their dues in thankless guest starring or supporting roles on film and TV, it didn't take Robin Williams long to find a foothold in Hollywood. His appearance as the alien Mork on one episode of Happy Days was so popular it lead »
More and more of the major Hollywood studios have now either finalized their movie release slate or are actively in the process of doing so, where it concerns Summer 2015 – a competitive release frame that will see new installments in such franchises as The Avengers, Jurassic Park, and Terminator arrive on the scene.
Case in point, Warner Bros. has decided to move The Man from U.N.C.L.E. – a modern film reboot of the 1960s TV series that was directed by Guy Ritchie (Sherlock Holmes) and stars Henry Cavill (Man of Steel) and Armie Hammer (The Lone Ranger). The secret agent action/thriller has been shifted from January 2015 to August 14th of the ...

We've had a lot of feelings about Johnny Depp over the years, from his smoldering "Winona Forever" days to, well, pretty much everything from the past few years. However, this trailer for the upcoming spy comedy "Mortdecai" looks promising.
Depp's character, Charlie Mortdecai, is a veddy fancy art dealer (he has his own bloody manservant, thank you!) who has to find some MacGuffin-y painting that could hold the key to a trove of Nazi gold. Meanwhile, he's got a slew of people hot on his trail, from his wife to the British M15. The cast of "Mortdecai" includes Gwyneth Paltrow, Ewan McGregor, Aubrey Plaza, Oliver Platt, and a whole lot of other cool customers. We don't get much in the way of plot deets, but the stylish '60s vibe goes well with the goofy British mannerisms of our hero.
