In May, visual effects guru Rick Baker (click here) finally released images of the aliens he designed for Night Skies, which was an unmade Steven Spielberg ("Jurassic Park") film. Though, it wasn't made it still had a heavy influence on the story and creature designs of Spielberg's E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial (1982). If you're not familiar with the fascinating story behind Night Skies I suggest you click on the link by Rick Baker's name. Below, is concept art that Empire recently published. These images were illustrated by Ed Verreaux with the intention of showing different versions of E.T.: The Extra - Terrestrial and the wide range of emotions the alien creature would have to perform. Ed also worked on: Empire of the Sun, Raiders of the Lost Ark, Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome and Poltergeist. Re-live the adventure and magic in one of the most beloved motion pictures of all-time, »
30. No Country for Old Men (2007)
Scene: Coin Flip
There was a brief period of time from 2006-2009 when the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences made some more daring, but wholly deserved choices for Best Picture. It began in 2006, when Martin Scorsese finally won for The Departed which, while not his best and not nearly as dark as, say, Taxi Driver or Raging Bull, still leaned that direction. Three years later, they handed the Oscar to The Hurt Locker over the blockbuster Avatar, rewarding quality over audience love. But in between the two it was given to No Country for Old Men, an incredibly dark neo-Western based on the Cormac McCarthy novel of the same name. It’s still one of the Coen Brothers’ best films, an incredible cat-and-mouse journey through West Texas in the 1980′s. The film stars Josh Brolin, Tommy Lee Jones, »

Jurassic Park is one of those movies that everybody likes. Nobody wants to associate with a person who doesn’t think Jurassic Park is one of the greatest things to have ever been created on this good Earth, because what kind of straight-minded person would think that? No person, that’s who. No Person.
Steven Spielberg helmed the first movie back in 1993, and thanks to a combination of awesome special effects, an amazing soundtrack (thank you John Williams) and badass characters (Jeff Goldblum, we’re looking at you), it has assured an immortal legacy (even though it did inspire two sort-of-naff sequels).
There’s been talk of Jurassic Park 4 ever since Jurassic Park 3 hit cinemas back in 2001, of course, and the project has been shelved a countless number of times ever since. But now Jurassic Park 4 is actually a thing, and shooting has started and everything, »

James Cameron, John Carpenter, Peter Jackson, Christopher Nolan & Steven Spielberg. You’d be hard pressed to come up with five names who, over the past few decades, have build better worlds on the big screen. Avatar, Halloween, The Lord of the Rings, Inception and Jurassic Park are just the tip of the cinematic iceberg for […]

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.

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 »

Dreamworks Animation CEO also reflected on an infamous 1991 memo, getting fired from Disney and 3D at his BFI London Film Festival keynote.
The firm behind the Shrek and How To Train Your Dragon franchises recently opened the Oriental DreamWorks facility in Shanghai, home to more than 200 artists, working on Kung Fu Panda 3 and two original films based on Chinese legends.
Delivering the BFI London Film Festival industry keynote, Katzenberg said of the original features: “These are movies that will be made in China, for China, as well as for export to the rest of the world.
“When we finally announce what these two stories are my guess is there will be a phenomenal sense of enthusiasm and pride from the public in China because these are their stories.”

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 »

The first poster has arrived online for Jurassic World, teasing a long-awaited return to Isla Nublar. Featuring the classic Jurassic Park logo against a foreboding, smoky background, the new poster aims for ominous and does a nice job of getting the goosebumps going ahead of next year’s release. “The park is open,” booms the official tagline, making us want to pile into the nearest jeep, head off into the rain-soaked jungle in search of a luckless goat, and wait for feeding time. The new film will take place some 22 years after...

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. »
