Summer Box Office Report Cards: Universal and Disney Dominate in 2015

23 August 2015 10:12 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The summer box office will go down as the second-biggest in history, but the wealth wasn’t evenly distributed. Instead, the results revealed a profound case of corporate income inequality.

Two studios, Universal and Disney, gobbled up most of the profits after fielding massive hits like “Jurassic World” and “Avengers: Age of Ultron.” Together, their films made up seven of the top ten highest-grossing domestic releases this summer. That left the rest of their big studio brethren to fight for crumbs, with some finding little left over. Variety breaks down the numbers to see which bets paid off and which fell flat.

Universal 

Hits: It was a run of blockbusters for the ages, propelling Universal to heights no other studio has reached. The big winners include “Jurassic World,” a canny reboot of a franchise that had stalled with 2001’s “Jurassic Park III”; “Pitch Perfect 2,” an a cappella comedy that »

Jurassic World’s Sequel Has (Finally) Been Announced

24 July 2015 1:54 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Universal Pictures

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 IIIChris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard are locked in for the sequel, so expect more cries of sexism and unbelievable action in heels.

‘Jurassic World’ Passes ‘Avengers’ to Become Third Biggest Film in History

22 July 2015 1:12 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Jurassic World” is now the third highest-grossing film in history, behind only “Titanic” and “Avatar.”

The dinosaur thriller has racked up $1.52 billion, pushing it past “Marvel’s The Avengers” and its $1.52 billion haul. Universal, the studio behind “Jurassic World,” has cracked the top five list of highest-grossing films twice this year after propelling “Furious 7″ to $1.51 billion globally. Prior to 2015, no Universal release had ever passed $1 billion at the worldwide box office.

Jurassic World” has grossed $614.3 million at the domestic box office, making it only the fourth film in North American history to cross $600 million mark. It has generated an additional $907.3 million at the foreign box office.

The film stars Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard, with Colin Trevorrow handling directing duties. More than a decade separated installments in the series, as “Jurassic Park III” hit theaters in 2001.

‘Lego Jurassic World’ Review (PS4)

18 July 2015 11:09 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

By now everyone knows what they are getting from a Lego video game… Lego Jurassic World sees Tt Games recreate the epic storylines of Jurassic Park, The Lost World: Jurassic Park and Jurassic Park III, as well as the blockbusting Jurassic World; in the first video game where players are be able to relive and experience all four Jurassic films reimagined in Lego form.

Key scenes and action sequences from the films are presented here, allowing gamers to play through key moments and giving them the opportunity to fully explore the expansive grounds of Isla Nublar and Isla Sorna. And for the first time, the characters speak with their own voices, using vocal snippets from the movies to help tell these Lego stories.

It’s safe to say I’m a huge Tt Games/Lego video game fan, from the very first time I picked up and played the first »

How to fix a failing movie franchise

7 July 2015 8:56 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Paramount tried a few approaches in the new Terminator reboot. But if a franchise hits the doldrums, how can a studio resurrect it?

Fingers are being crossed at Skydance and Paramount Pictures that the critical mauling handed out to Terminator: Genisys last week won't be reflected fully in the box office numbers. So far, the plan for a new trilogy of Terminator films is arguably just about alive, courtesy of a total gross for the new film of $131m worldwide. That's below expectations, but if it can eventually crawl its way to $400m, that's probably enough to move ahead with a Genisys sequel (it'd be more than the hugely-acclaimed Mad Max: Fury Road).

But even if a new film gets greenlit, it's clear that things have to change again. As many have pointed out, the consensus is now that there have been more bad-to-middling Terminator films than good ones, »

“Terminator Genysis” looks to be the next blockbuster to cash in on nostalgia

29 June 2015 1:05 PM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

A few weeks ago, the film community collectively underestimated the impact that nostalgia could have at the box office. A lack of awareness of just how much audiences were ready to revisit the Jurassic Park franchise led to shock when Jurassic World began setting box office records. This week, there’s potentially another giant movie hoping to capitalize in the same way. It’s the sequel/franchise reboot Terminator Genysis, which is keen to follow in Jurassic World’s huge footsteps. This will be an interesting test of nostalgia, one that likely won’t be as huge a hit, but could still easily find a large audience nonetheless. Everyone knows the Terminator franchise (started by James Cameron, in case you somehow forgot) by now, with this one seeking to slightly rewrite the rules of the series in this fifth installment/fourth sequel. Arnold Schwarzenegger once again stars as the robot protector of Sarah Conner, »

‘American Sniper’ Shoots Back Up to No. 1 on Home-Video Sales Charts

24 June 2015 5:38 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Five weeks after it came out, Warner’s “American Sniper” regained the top spot on both national home video sales charts for the week ending June 21, bumping the surprise theatrical hit “Kingsman: The Secret Service,” from 20th Century Fox, to No. 2.

Two new releases debuted in the top five on the Nielsen VideoScan First Alert chart, which tracks overall disc sales, Blu-ray Disc and DVD combined, as well as Nielsen’s dedicated Blu-ray chart.

Sony Pictures’ “Chappie,” a sci-fi thriller about a renegade police droid who is reprogrammed to think and feel for himself, bowed at No. 3 on both charts. The film opened theatrically on March 6 and went on to gross $31.6 million, against a budget estimated at $49 million.

Bowing at No. 4 on the overall disc sales chart and No. 5 on the Blu-ray chart was Warner’s “Run All Night,” a mobster film starring Liam Neeson and Ed Harris that also underperformed in theaters, »

Five Film Franchises on the Fence

24 June 2015 2:30 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Anghus Houvouras with five film franchises on the fence…

In part one, we examined the worst film franchises passing through Hollywood like kidney stones wrapped in barbed wire. As we continue to look at examine the current state of film franchises that Hollywood has to offer, it felt like there were some that were neither movie masterpieces or unmitigated cinematic disasters. Some franchises are straddling the fence between ‘awesome’ and ‘awful’. Let’s take a look at the five movie franchises that delivered some highs and lows… whose ultimate film fate has yet to be determined.

Jurassic Park

Do I even need to waste word count on the greatness of the original? A masterpiece. Steven Spielberg’s best big budget movie and still the gold standard for special effects, which seems odd given that it’s 20+ years old. The Lost World: Jurassic Park is the definition of an uninspired, cliché ridden copy/paste sequel. »

5 things you didn’t know about the Jurassic Park franchise

Luke Owen with 5 things you didn’t know about the world of Jurassic Park

With Jurassic World now officially the fastest movie to reach the $1 billion mark (in just thirteen days!), it seems as though the world has gone back to 1993 and dino-mania is running wild once again.

To celebrate the success of the movie, we’ve looked back through the history books to bring you five things you may not know about the Jurassic Park franchise.

1. Harrison Ford was nearly Dr. Alan Grant

Harrison Ford has always had a great working relationship with Steven Spielberg and his partner in crime George Lucas. Not only was he the star of Spielberg’s ode to adventure serials of the 1930s and 40s, Raiders of the Lost Ark and its subsequent Indiana Jones sequels, but he was also featured in American Graffiti and the Star Wars trilogy, the products of George Lucas. »

5 reasons why The Lost World: Jurassic Park isn’t as bad as you remember

23 June 2015 11:50 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Simon Columb with 5 reasons why The Lost World: Jurassic Park isn’t as bad as you remember…

You did it. You planned to watch all three Jurassic Park films prior to watching Jurassic World and stalled after the first one.

There are problems with The Lost World: Jurassic Park, sure, but it is crucially a Spielberg film. Not executively-produced, but directed by the bearded cinematic deity himself. But you had to skip it because everyone ‘knows’ how bad it is. Truth be known, I don’t think it is that bad. I don’t see the horrendous train-wreck of a film, many believed it was…

The now-defunct podcast ‘Frankly, My Dear‘ once claimed – and I’m paraphrasing – “The Lost World is so bad that it puts in doubt whether Spielberg actually directed the film and, though people claim it’s only the San Diego bit which is bad, in fact, »

Marketing the 'Jurassic' beast

22 June 2015 5:12 PM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Exclusive: Universal heads orchestrated a precisely calibrated marketing campaign in support of the release that played a critical role in driving the tentpole past $1bn worldwide in record time on Monday.

As production on Jurassic World gained momentum in 2014, top brass at Universal and co-financier Legendary grew increasingly confident that Colin Trevorrow’s action franchise reboot would deliver thrills.

Yet there were potential obstacles. It had been 14 years since Jurassic Park III and 22 years since Jurassic Park, Steven Spielberg’s beloved box office beast that spawned the franchise.

Universal’s global marketing team knew that if their tentpole were to really take off they would need to tap into an enduring love for the series.

“We wanted to make sure Jurassic World was always going to be seen as one of the three big movies this year with Avengers 2 and Star Wars,” says Simon Hewlett, the London-based executive vice-president of Universal Pictures International (Upi, pictured).

Video Game Review – Lego Jurassic World

Kris Wall reviews Lego Jurassic World

You have to hand it to Traveller’s Tales, they’re clearly huge fans of the licences they come to develop for with each new Lego game they make. Despite one coming out seemingly every 6 months now, each one features an obvious love, respect and understanding of the licence material that has managed to translate the worlds of DC, Marvel, Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings & The Hobbit into some hugely fun, charming and endlessly inventive platform games. They’re games by fans, for the fans.

As a kid with a short attention span, I liked and enjoyed a lot of different things in rapid, fickle succession, but my childhood came to be defined by three things, three loves that endured my youth and lasted to this day, Batman, Indiana Jones and Jurassic Park. Traveller’s Tales have already adapted Batman and Indiana Jones »

8 Moments That Made Jurassic World Wonderful

17 June 2015 8:17 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Upon the original announcement of the film.s production, Jurassic World evoked memories of the last time we saw genetically enhanced dinosaurs roam around the cinemas. Considering Jurassic Park III had that unfortunate distinction, we were on the fence as to whether Colin Trevorrow.s sequel would be another reason to mourn the franchise, or the vindication we.d long been waiting for. Thankfully, the film turned out to be the nostalgic thrill ride that made us gaze at the screen in wonder. In particular, there are eight moments that really made Jurassic World.s total experience something with which we fell in love. God Creates Dinosaurs Author, chaos expert, and a ladies man about town, Dr. Ian Malcolm has a lot of experience with dinosaurs. Enough that he.s written a book about John Hammond.s experiment in playing God, as well as the experiences he.s probably had »

‘Kingsman: The Secret Service’ Bows at No. 1 on Home-Video Sales Chart

17 June 2015 6:18 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The surprise theatrical hit “Kingsman: The Secret Service,” a spy film that opened back in February but kept a steady beat at the box office and has now grossed more than $128 million, easily topped the national home video sales charts for the week ending June 14.

The 20th Century Fox release bumped Paramount’s “The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water” from the top spot on both the Nielsen VideoScan overall disc chart, which tracks combined Blu-ray Disc and DVD sales, and Nielsen’s Blu-ray Disc-only chart.

“SpongeBob” settled in at No. 2 but according to Nielsen data only sold about one-third as many discs as “Kingsman,” which is loosely based on the popular comic book “The Secret Service” and was directed by Matthew Vaughn.

“Kingsman” generated 51% of its total unit sales from Blu-ray, according to Nielsen, compared to 36% for “SpongeBob,” down from 44% in the animated comedy’s first week in stores. »

Film Face-Off: 'Jurassic Park' vs 'Jurassic World'

17 June 2015 3:00 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Welcome back to Jurassic Park/World! It's been 22 years since Jurassic Park stomped all over our collective imaginations (in a good way). Now, let's ignore The Lost World and Jurassic Park III, since the new film, Jurassic World, seems to do just that. Things have changed. The awe of science has been replaced by corporate greed. The park features a petting zoo, water park, and gyrospheres. Don't worry, there are still plenty of foolish humans, making rash decisions, which means eventually dinosaurs run amok. In this week's Film Face-off we'll put Jurassic World's amoking and more against Steven Spielberg's original Jurassic Park.   The (Human) Chemistry Jurassic Park Dr. Alan Grant (Sam Neill) and Dr. Ellie...

What happened to the cast of Jurassic Park? Sam Neill and co-stars 22 years later

17 June 2015 1:12 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Jurassic World is shattering box office records across the globe, but what happened to the stars of the movie that kick-started it all? Steven Spielberg's 1993 classic Jurassic Park was flawlessly cast, mixing well-known stars and fresh faces in a perfect blockbuster thrill-ride.

With Jurassic World overhauling its stars entirely (just two remain from the original), we take a look back to find out what the stars of Jurassic Park are doing now...

Sam Neill

Already a well-known star when he appeared in Jurassic Park, Neill won himself a fresh fanbase playing Alan Grant, a palaeontologist invited to see John Hammond's breathtaking park up close.

A one-time contender to play James Bond, Neill's early credits include espionage series Reilly: Ace of Spies, Dead Calm and The Hunt for Red October. In the years after Jurassic Park he notched up roles in Event Horizon, The Tudors and Peaky Blinders. Neill »

Jurassic World Snuck In A Sweet Nod To Jurassic Park 3

17 June 2015 7:20 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Though it wasn.t fully embraced by critics, Jurassic World premiered in theaters this past weekend and dominated the box office. So, for the most part, that means fans got a kick out of the franchise.s resurrection. Part of the fun was seeing all the small Easter eggs director and Jurassic Park lover Colin Trevorrow hid in the film. You may have pinpointed a few yourself, but there.s one reference to Jurassic Park 3 that Trevorrow thinks only diehard fans will see.  To refresh your memory, Jurassic Park 3 was all about those desperate parents who enlisted the aide of Dr. Alan Grant (Sam Neill) in order to track down their lost son in the wilderness of Isla Sorna. In an interview with MTV, Trevorrow gave up one of his more obscure references to this movie. When the T. Rex does appear and what she smashes through, what »
