This is the Internet, where cats are like currency, and we're suckers for everything Jurassic Park, so naturally we couldn't resist a video that re-creates the iconic kitchen scene from Spielberg's classic with cats instead of velociraptors. What we weren't expecting was a video that did it quite as well as this. There's really not much else to say about this, except that we're wondering what exactly is happening in the universe that we're getting so many unrelated, but equally strange, tributes to Jurassic Park this week. First we got the interactive re-creation of the computer system Nedry uses, then some brilliant mind recut Jeff Goldblum's supernatural laugh into a song, and now we've got cats trying to eat Tim and Lex. We're not...

What a pleasant surprise to find a computer-animated kidpic without the constant chatter, in which the backgrounds aren’t virtual but all-natural, and cute cartoon critters frolic against handsome outdoor footage shot in the south of France. While the story skews young — so nonthreatening as to justify some toddlers’ first trip to the cinema — Futurikon’s simple-minded “Minuscule: Valley of the Lost Ants” has been a massive hit in France, where it capitalizes on the success of a beloved short-form TV series. Though the U.S. marketplace remains stubbornly resistant to foreign-made toons, this dialogue-free offering should export well to other territories.
On the tube, “Minuscule” unspooled in tight, 6-minute episodes, as CG insects went about their modest adventures amidst the French countryside. At feature length, the approach grows a bit tiresome, and though directors Thomas Szabo and Helene Giraud don’t always manage to sustain our interest, they have »

You know and love actor Jeff Goldblum from such classics as "Jurassic Park," "Independence Day" and "The Fly," as well as Wes Anderson's highly anticipated "The Grand Budapest Hotel," but you haven't experienced total Goldblum fandom until you've dined at Goldblum's. In our latest episode of After Hours, MTV News correspondent Josh Horowitz goes from a chance street encounter with Goldblum on the streets of New York City, resulting in an invitation to Goldblum's new ...

Last week in New York I had the extraordinary experience of sitting down with two actors I've admired for literally decades: Jeff Goldblum and Willem Dafoe. Discussing Wes Anderson's new film, Grand Budapest Hotel, they not only shared details on the inner workings of the film's construction, and Anderson's generous nature in sharing its inspirations, but also how the specific looks of their characters evolved and shaped their performances. But before all that, Jeff Goldblum made my day. Maybe my year. Possibly my decade. As a bit of background, I--like many of you--have been crushing on Goldblum ever since he played the cocky chaos theorist Ian Malcolm in 1993's Jurassic Park. Still, I'm a professional, so I planned on keeping my crush to myself. But any cool composure I may have mocked up melted away when I introduced myself, because Goldblum exploded in signature enthusiasm, telling me, "Wow! You »
There are two people in this world: those who don’t understand the work of art known as Jeff Goldblum and those who do. As Goldblum’s smarmy, leather-clad scientist in Jurassic Park once said, “Life finds a way.” Somehow, life found us looking at this remix of Goldblum’s irreverent character laughing his ridiculous laugh in the 1993 dino thriller — and it’s a real panty dropper. “Hahahrawrrahaha” was created by Australian DJ Mikey "Flip Shot" Diserio, and through the magic of chaos theory, it was delivered to our ears. Do you think this is the song playing in Goldblum’s head during the scene where he’s reclining like a Roman god with his shirt open...

Welcome, beloved guest-to-be. Upon your check-in to The Grand Budapest Hotel on Friday, you might meet a very important attorney that goes by the name of Deputy Kovacs, who is played by Jeff Goldblum in Wes Anderson’s new caper about friendship, honor, and promises fulfilled. This week, Wamg and a few members of the press sat down (in a roundtable discussion) with Goldblum to talk about the working with Anderson, upcoming projects, and memes. Check it out below!
The Grand Budapest Hotel recounts the adventures of Gustave H, a legendary concierge at a famous European hotel between the wars; and Zero Moustafa, the lobby boy who becomes his most trusted friend. The story involves the theft and recovery of a priceless Renaissance painting; a raging battle for an enormous family fortune; a desperate chase on motorcycles, trains, sleds, and skis; and the sweetest confection of a love affair — all »

Remember that messed up laugh Jeff Goldblum did in Jurassic Park? If you can't recall just read this out loud: "mwarhowhow harw how! Buhhuh Ha Ho Huh." I have to say it's about time someone made a dope remix to compliment one of acting's greatest moments. All credit goes to MrTabarnaco2 for this video, although I'm sure hours of listening to this laugh made the pleasure all yours.

Guess what unforgettable movie about people wanting to forget is about to celebrate its 10th anniversary?
Have you ever thought about what your favorite shot from it is? Or which shot best represents the movie as a whole? Have you ever wondered how it can possibly be that the cinematographer Ellen Kuras has only done 4 narrative features in the ten years since?
You know where this is going right?!
Break out the bubbly because "Hit Me With Your Best Shot" returns on March 18th (We're moving it to Tuesdays at 9 Pm to give people the weekend to screen the movies and be ready!). If you're new to the blog or haven't yet experimented with actually participating, I guarantee a good time. Everyone who has participating religiously has said that they've gotten a ton out of it. Plus it proves the point 'the more the merrier' because the best episodes offer »

There’s nothing too nerdy for us when it comes to movies – in fact, the more nerdy and obscure something movie related is, the more likely we are to love it. Take, for instance, this awesome time waster that pays homage to one of the lesser unforgettable scenes in Steven Spielberg’s Jurassic Park. Remember how things all went wrong in the film? Hacker Dennis Nedry decides he’s not above taking a payoff to steal Dinosaur DNA and get it off the island for a huge payday. To facilitate his thievery, Nedry hacks the security system and makes it so no one can override what he’s done. Samuel L. Jackson’s Ray Arnold gives it his best shot, but his efforts come up short. After three failures, he’s taunted by an image of Nedry’s head on an...

Following the DeLorean that received the official Cuusoo stamp of approval going into production at Lego, it seems that many other sets are proving popular with the Cuusoo audience. If you’ve never heard of Lego Cuusoo or don’t know what it is, here’s the deal….
Fans of the hugely popular plastic bricks are given the task to create their own new designs which are then voted on by the Lego loving community. Any design that gets over 10 000 votes earns the right to have their design reviewed and then if all goes well (and in this case if it gets the Universal Pictures seal of approval), it goes into production. This is exactly what happened to the Back to the Future DeLorean which is now on sale across the globe and can be purchased right here.
Pocket Lint have found a large number of other sets vying to »

Following up our interview with Slash for his first foray into the horror genre, HeyUGuys had the opportunity to get further under the skin of Nothing Left to Fear when we spoke with its director Anthony Leonardi III…
Why a career in filmmaking? Was there that one inspirational moment?
Oh man I have a couple of them. My background is a bit different because I grew up in the film industry. My grandparents worked at MGM together and they met when they were kids, and I grew up going to Spielberg’s movie sets whilst he was shooting the likes of Jurassic Park. So from an early age it was in the blood and I just knew what it was I wanted to do. Also I grew up in a small town just north of Los Angeles. I remember how we had one theatre and several features and I saw Baron Munchausen and Beetlejuice there, »

The Oscar victories for “12 Years a Slave,” “Gravity” and “Dallas Buyers Club” transcend their combined 13 trophies; they offer examples of successful risk-taking in subject matter, technology and funding.
1. Don’t underestimate films about the black experience.
“12 Years” will help put an end to the long-held Hollywood assumption that films about the black experience don’t sell internationally. So far, the pic has earned more than 65% of its $140 million-plus box office take -— and counting — outside of North America. (Fox Searchlight handles domestic, Lionsgate overseas.) That haul is hardly record-breaking, but it’s impressive for a movie budgeted at less than $20 million. Plus, its theatrical and ancillary money undoubtedly will get a boost post-Oscars.
Equally important, the success of the pic proves there’s an audience for films with tough subject matter, handled with artistry and without the sop of sentimental concessions. It will be even more encouraging if it motivates »

These days,Jeff Goldblum is more likely to show up in a Wes Anderson movie than a summer blockbuster, but back in the 1990s, he starred in three of the most successful movies of all time in Jurassic Park, The Lost World: Jurassic Park and Independence Day. With both Jurassic World and Independence Day 2 gearing up for production, only one franchise will sport the 'Blum.
"They haven't called me for [Jurassic World]4," Goldblum recently told The Huffington Post. "But I was perfectly satisfied with the two that I did. I'm still satisfied with that and I'll be the first in line to see anything else, so, you know."
However, Goldblum admitted that Independence Day 2 will be another matter.
"Yeah, they've talked to me about it and I've talked to them about it and they're excited and I'm anxious and eager to see — I haven't read anything — what they cook up. You know, »

Jurassic World looks set to boost its human cast with a pair of new names, with reports suggesting that Vincent D’Onofrio and Irfan Khan are in line to join the film’s ensemble. The Wrap claims that D’Onofrio will play the film’s human bad-guy, who presumably will play some role in unleashing another wave of dinosaur-based mayhem. Meanwhile, the report goes on to claim that Khan will play a character named Patel, the billionaire owner of a new Jurassic Park. They never learn, do they? Should they officially sign on, D’Onofrio...
