We just love original artwork, and every week there's always some kind of cool creation paying tribute to our favorite movies that's worth highlighting. This week is no exception, and there's actually a whole gallery to look forward to thanks to Hero Complex. Over in Los Angeles they have a new show called Quotes, Lines & Lyrics with art pieces inspired by just that, quotes from movies, lines from TV shows and lyrics from songs. Obviously, we're more interested in the movie quote inspired pieces, and there are plenty of those, ranging from Star Wars to Jurassic Park to The Blues Brothers and Forrest Gump. Look! Here's just some of the pieces from Quotes, Lines & Lyrics (via SlashFilm & Facebook): The show opens up on February 27th with an opening reception from 7pm - 10pm local time at the Hero Complex Gallery, 2020 South Robertson Blvd., Los Angeles CA. If you can't make it to the gallery, »

There are a few elements to Jurassic World that have given some of us pause, and one of them has to do with Velociraptors (the others include why anyone would try re-opening a park like this again, and the very concept of hybrid dinos). The nasty villains of the first Jurassic Park, the Raptors appear to be decidedly more friendly – or at least understandable – in this new version, with Chris Pratt’s character Owen Grady cozying up to them in a way that Sam Neill and Laura Dern would never have dreamed. Will this new approach pay off, or will the Raptors prove once more that they are the meanest and smartest bastards in the dinosaur kingdom?
I mention Raptors now because they figure into the latest batch of images to come at us from the direction of Isla Nublar. Empire Magazine (via Comic Book Movie) have released some images from Jurassic World, »

We haven't seen anything from Jurassic World in a few weeks, since toy photos gave us our best look at the Indominus Rex. Thankfully, today brings the release of four new photos, featuring Chris Pratt as Owen. The first image has Owen in a room that director Colin Trevorrow describes as the, "most absolute high-tech room we could possibly imagine." The screen in the background appears to display the vital signs for two "troopers."
We also see Own trying to tame two of his trained velociraptors, along with a shot of the actor standing next to director Colin Trevorrow. Twenty-two years after the events of Jurassic Park, Isla Nublar now features a fully functioning dinosaur theme park, Jurassic World, as originally envisioned by John Hammond. After 10 years of operation and visitor rates declining, in order to fulfill a corporate mandate, a new attraction is created to re-spark visitor's interest, which backfires horribly. »
2015 is looking to be the year of the book adaptation, with a long lineup of movie releases set to (hopefully) bring their literary counterparts spectacularly to life. The likes of Fifty Shades Of Grey and Still Alice have already hit cinema screens, and are soon to be followed up by the big screen versions of all manner of literature, withThomas Hardy’s 1874 classic Far From The Madding Crowd at one end of the scale, and the Hunger Games finale at the other.
So, with so many book adaptations due to grace screens in the coming months, what better time than now to look back over a long, varied history of book adaptations?
Like with any genre of filmmaking, adaptations are notoriously hit and miss, yet enduringly popular. The 39 Steps, To Kill A Mockingbird, and Jurassic Park are all examples of the adaptation done right, and each is a loving testament to its source material. »

This week sees the release of indie horror It Follows. You will have no doubt seen the posters or trailer plastered everywhere, but you might not know too much about the film. It Follows is the second feature film from director David Robert Mitchell and sees teenage girl Jay, played by Maika Monroe, the star of last year’s brilliant The Guest, and her friends stalked by a malevolent spirit. So far it sounds like every horror film out there but the twist with It Follows is that you only become a target if you sleep with someone already in its sights; it’s a cross between the video in Ringu and an Std.
Last week we had the opportunity to sit down with both director David Robert Mitchell and one of the young cast, actor Daniel Zovatto. Zovatto is originally from Costa Rica (yes folks the land of Jurassic Park »

There is nothing more fascinating for schoolchildren – and, let’s be honest, big-kid adults – than learning about the prehistoric reptiles we know as dinosaurs. Films such as Jurassic Park, Godzilla and One Million Years BC have been such massive hits due to this obsession with dinos.
Of course the dinosaur everyone is most familiar with – and who is most feared – is the T-rex, with its razor-sharp teeth and bloodthirsty desire to consume animal – and, in popular culture, human – flesh.
Yet, ask any given person on the street, and its almost certain they will be able to name at least a couple more – be they the Velociraptor, the Diplodocus or the Stegosaurus. And this, despite dinosaurs having been extinct for more than 65million years.
Children play with dinosaur toys, they watch dinosaur cartoons – and they also visit the various dinosaur theme parks and adventure centres dotted around the globe, such is »

Irrfan Khan, who is getting rave reviews for his outstanding performance in his latest released film Qissa, has added yet another feather in his cap. The talented actor, who is one of few Indian actors to have made significant inroads into Hollywood, will now also be part of the highly anticipated and first ever Jurassic Park franchise game. Irrfan’s onscreen character of Simon Masrani, the dynamic owner of the park in Jurassic World, has been used in the upcoming Jurassic Park franchise game.
A source close to Irrfan says, “There would be 2 versions of the game that have been developed by the team at Lego and Irrfan’s character would be part of both the games. The first being a character game and the other being a video game. This is a huge thing as both the games will be launched at an international level.”

This week Neil Calloway is wary of Neill Blomkamp’s Alien film…
When Neill Blomkamp released some of the artwork for his proposed Alien film, I was impressed – concept art for science fiction films is often better than the films themselves – and mentally filed it in my “great unmade films” drawer. It sat there alongside the Gladiator sequel scripted by Nick Cave, in which Russell Crowe’s character is resurrected and fights in various battles throughout history, Return of the Jedi directed by David Lynch (he was offered it, and turned it down because he did not want to helm a science fiction film where he was not in control of the material; ironically his next film would be an adaptation of Frank Herbert’s Dune. I cannot imagine what Lynch’s version of Jabba’s Palace would look like) and the unmade Jurassic Park sequel that featured dinosaurs, obviously, »

As I understand it, Disney’s plans to reboot Indiana Jones are incredibly basic. All they’ve absolutely decided on so far is “Let’s reboot Indiana Jones, someday.”
But that doesn’t mean there isn’t some experimentation going on, some daydreaming and chatting. Deadline capitalised on this a few weeks back by saying that the studio would like Chris Pratt to take the lead role and replace Harrison Ford. I’m sure they would, but there’s a lot to be done before Pratt would have a real offer to consider.
In their follow-up report, Deadline say that Steven Spielberg would like to direct the film. It’s no surprise – he’s proud of the series, and does feel some ownership. Moreso than, say, Jurassic Park, which was an adaptation of the novel by Michael Crichton.
It bears repeating that there’s an awful lot of work done »

Of all the tech categories, Sound Editing and Sound Mixing may be the toughest to predict, not least of all because many have trouble distinguishing between the two. For this, let's focus on Sound Editing, which is the selection and assembling of the various recorded tracks – dialogue, effects, and music – before the final mix occurs. The Motion Picture Sound Editors honored "Unbroken" (for Dialogue and Adr), "American Sniper" (Sound Effects and Foley) and "Birdman" (Music), and since 1987, when Mpse first started giving out their Golden Reel Awards, at least one of their winners has repeated at the Academy 16 times: -Break- 1988: "Who Framed Roger Rabbit?" (Dialogue and Adr) 1990: "The Hunt for Red October" (Dialogue and Adr; tied with "Total Recall") 1993: "Jurassic Park" (Sound Effects and Foley) 1994: "Speed" (Sound Effects and Foley) 1995: "Braveheart" ...' »

It’s amazing how far Chris Pratt has come in the last few years. Rewind to the beginning of the decade and he was a schlubby comedian on TV. Now he’s the head of Marvel’s “Guardians Of The Galaxy,” franchise — the director didn’t even want to meet with him for the part at first — the lead in the new “Jurassic World” series, and the man being touted to replace Harrison Ford in the “Indiana Jones” reboot. What’s more is Steven Spielberg, obviously an executive producer on the new “Jurassic Park” franchise, is so excited with he’s seen in Pratt that he now wants do direct the mooted ‘Indy’ reboot. Deadline says it’s early days, but Spielberg wants Pratt to play the adventuring archeologist and, provided there’s a good script, he would like to direct too. Indiana Jones reboot rumors were denied for months, »

20th Century Fox has confirmed to HitFix that Neill Blomkamp is indeed now officially set to make an "Alien" sequel, as the director stated today on his Instagram account, which any hardcore "Alien" fan should be subscribed to already. We've also confirmed that this will not be a direct follow-up to "Prometheus," but will take place after "Prometheus 2," which Ridley Scott will produce. I'm curious how any of that will work now. If you saw the initial imagery that Neill Blomkamp released online, he's obviously envisioned a film that ignores pretty much anything that takes place after the ending of James Cameron's "Aliens." It's the sort of thing that I'm used to seeing from hardcore fanboys, but I'm not sure I've ever seen a series that hates its own continuity with quite the vigor that the "Alien" franchise does. Fox is confirming that the film will take place after "Prometheus 2, »

New York Toy Fair has wrapped up and, as it does nearly every year, has left our wallets and bank accounts trembling in fear of the year ahead. The sheer amount of amazing things that were shown off still has our heads spinning, but I’ve picked out five items I can’t wait to actually get my hands on.
To be entirely honest, Toy Fair 2015 had so many amazing looking toys that it’s tough narrow down any kind of list. I could literally talk about all the products shown for days and not get tired (just ask my fiance who’s been enduring it so far), but for this article I really wanted to limit myself. It was tough, and there may be some cheating here and there, but on the whole, if you’re a geeky fan, these are things you should be saving your money for. »

Imitation may be the sincerest form of flattery, but AMC Entertainment CEO Gerry Lopez could do with a little less praise.
The country’s second-largest theater chain is investing more than $600 million over five years to outfit its locations with reclining seats and alcoholic beverage service. It’s a strategy that most of AMC’s major rivals are embracing as they look for ways to entice audiences to get off their couch, turn off their computers and e-readers, power down their smartphones and hit the multiplexes.
“I don’t need to be this flattered,” Lopez jokes. “It doesn’t fill my ego… The reality is the history of our sector and our industry is that people copy the pants off of each other, and it can be annoying as hell.”
AMC has already introduced what it calls its second-generation recliner — chairs with more settings that also take up less room, »

I could barely contain my excitement. Star Wars, a film I had probably watched maybe 20 or 30 times was going to be re-released theatrically. My parents weren’t big movie fans, but my uncle had offered to take me and my best friend to see it. A fitting choice considering it had been my uncle who introduced me to the Star Wars universe. He gave me the trilogy box-set after I had watched his copy of Batman (1989) so many times that I could quote lines by heart. As much as I loved Batman, Star Wars completely overwhelmed my five year old self. I loved movies already at a young age, but this was a phenomenon that the entire world could tap into.
A New Hope was now dubbed the “The Special Edition” and the picture was rumored to have millions of dollars in special effects added following it’s 20th anniversary. »

Toot toot, the Entertainment Franchise Express just rolled into the station, and it's carrying some insane and delightful plastic items for everyone to enjoy (perhaps with a tiny dose of shame if you're in your 50s). Toy Fair 2015 is in full swing here in New York City, and we got a solo tour of toy giant Hasbro's newest crop of high-profile action figures, miniatures, pseudo-weapons, and the like. Hasbro is in charge of play items for some of the world's biggest brands — Marvel, Star Wars, Jurassic Park — and we got to see their stuff in action. Here were some of the highlights.First up, here are a bunch of very tall action figures that tie in to Avengers: Age of Ultron. The big draw here is that they can all talk to each other when they're turned on and put next to one another. They all seem to »
