A fourth Jurassic Park has always seemed inevitable. All three previous Jurassic Park movies were box office hits including the third chapter. As a kid growing to love movies, I remember Steven Spielberg’s first two Jurassic Park films being some of the first movies to really transport my mind to another place and make me connect with and believe in and fantasy that seemed all too real. The franchise thrives on bringing the dinosaurs of the past to life to haunt and scare the people of today. It’s a gimmick that has worked time and time again and will continue to work no matter who the actor is running from a tyrannosaurus rex or other hybrid clone of dinosaur DNA.

'Parks and Recreation' star Chris Pratt is the latest to be tapped for a starring role in Colin Trevorrow's dino development 'Jurassic World'. The Wrap are reporting that the actor, whom will be seen next in the upcoming 'Guardians of the Galaxy' as Star-Lord, is being lined up for the part that recently had Josh Brolin ('Oldboy') attached but whom will not now be part of the project. The Universal Pictures production has already scored Bryce Dallas Howard ('The Village'), Nick Robinson ('The Kings of Summer') and Ty Simpkins ('Insidious Chapter 2'). And reportedly 'Life of Pi' actor Irrfan Khan is also in line for a supporting role. Trevorrow will helm from a script he co-penned with Derek Connolly. »
Hollywood history always makes for fascinating reading. Hindsight and whatnot. During a month in which Sound on Sight takes an opportunity to tip a collective hat in the direction of recently ‘retired’ workhorse auteur Steven Soderbergh, there is a further chance to reel back the years and examine a period of time when one of modern cinema’s finest acolytes was transforming from indie hero to mainstream heavyweight. Of course, it all seems so predictable now that he would follow up his 2001 Oscar win with 12 years of financial and critical success with unmatched versatility. What is more interesting are two fellow directors sharing the limelight with him that year, the trio hailed as the hottest directorial properties in the business. Chances are many of you do not remember the name Richard Kelly. It’s likely most of you have no wish to recall the work of M. Night Shyamalan. 2001 was a strange year. »

Do you know what really grinds my gears? Terrible plot twists, that’s what.
Everyone’s had this experience before: there you are, enjoying a perfectly serviceable romance/thriller/drama/action/horror/[insert odd subgenre here] flick, when, suddenly, you’re shocked out of your seat, and not in a good way.
You’ve just witnessed a ruinously bad plot twist that has the net effect of obliterating any shred of credibility your film of choice may have once possessed. Please know that you have my deepest sympathies, and if you need to talk to anyone to help you get through this tough time, our comment boards are always open to you.
Terrible plot twists are the ultimate in awful movie-watching experiences. Sadly, that doesn’t mean they’re uncommon. And unfortunately, I’ve seen more than my share of good films destroyed by ridiculous, strange, unjustified or just plain dumb twists. What this »

As things push forward for the Colin Trevorrow helmed 'Jurassic World', the highly anticipated fourth installment in the dino series, it appears that little 'Insidious Chapter 2' star Ty Simpkins has managed to score a leading role on the project. 12-year old Simpkins (below), who plays Dalton in the 'Insidious' franchise, also starred recently in superhero sequel 'Iron Man 3'. 'New Girl' actor Jake Johnson and Bryce Dallas Howard ('The Village') are also in talks for roles in the latest chapter. Steven Spielberg, Frank Marshall and Pat Crowley will all co-produce and Trevorrow will direct from his own script co-written along with Derek Connolly. »
'Chronicle' star Alex Russell is the subject of today's 'Carrie' related news. The Kimberly Peirce helmed remake has been slipping assets under our noses now for months on end but most of the focus up to this point has been on 'Carrie' herself and her deranged mother. However, a new still has been revealed featuring Russell in character as Billy Nolan, the role that was formerly filled by John Travolta in the 1976 original. The 'Carrie' redo stars Chloe Grace Moretz ('Kick-Ass 2'), Julianne Moore ('Hannibal'), Portia Doubleday ('Youth in Revolt'), Ansel Elgort, Judy Greer ('The Village') and Brit hottie Gabriella Wilde. Head below to check out the pic. »

Bryce Dallas Howard in ‘Jurassic World’? Howard possibly the next female star in ‘Jurassic Park’ franchise Bryce Dallas Howard, Rush director Ron Howard’s daughter perhaps best known for playing the Vengeful Vampire Victoria in David Slade’s The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, is "in talks" to star in Jurassic World aka Jurassic Park 4, to be directed by Safety Not Guaranteed‘s Colin Trevorrow. At this stage, it’s unclear what exactly Howard would be doing in Jurassic World — well, except that her (potential) character will somehow become entangled with dinosaurs and that there’ll be lots of green screens on the set. (See also: “‘Jurassic World’ director Colin Trevorrow. Why Him?“) (Photo: Bryce Dallas Howard.) According to various online reports, Universal had sets its sights on Bryce Dallas Howard a while back, but production was halted after Trevorrow took a pass on Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver’s Jurassic World draft. »

Bryce Dallas Howard is in talks to join the Colin Trevorrow directed film, Jurassic World. She has been in films such as 50/50, The Help, Hereafter, Terminator: Rise of the Machines, The Village, Spider-Man 3 and more. She's a great actress, so if she ends up joining the production she would make the first great addition.
The long-awaited, Steven Spielberg-produced film will be shot in 3D and released on June 12th, 2015. There's no solid information on what the movie will be about, but judging from the title, dinosaurs have leaked into the rest of the world, and I imagine they are wreaking havoc.

Terminator Salvation and The Help star Bryce Dallas Howard is reportedly in negotiations to join director Colin Trevorrow's Jurassic World, according to The Wrap. Howard (daughter of director Ron Howard) has played in genre material before, including roles in Spider-man 3, The Village, and The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, so she's certainly no stranger to big budget material. No details on what her role would be, as the lid has been kept pretty tight on this one. The only other »

If you're interested in the White family genealogy and more importantly exactly which branch our little 'Carrie' sits upon on her family tree then this new animated gif is just the thing. Merging the gene chart with some telekinetic mischief from the troubled teen (played by Chloe Grace Moretz ('Kick-Ass 2')) the new animated asset is another in a long line of little cheeky teasers and images that have been released over the past months. And yet still the release is over a month away. But it strongly feels like MGM and Screen Gems are right behind this project and very hopeful for some impressive theatrical success in the Kimberly Peirce directed reimagining. The 'Carrie' re-adaptation also stars Julianne Moore ('Hannibal'), Portia Doubleday ('Youth in Revolt'), Alex Russell ('Chronicle'), Ansel Elgort, Judy Greer ('The Village') and Gabriella Wilde. Check out the the new viral image below. »
A new triple hit of 'Carrie' stills have arrived each greatly representative of some of the more memorable images from Brian De Palma's original. The new images feature 'Kick-Ass 2' star Chloe Grace Moretz in the iconic role, first filled by Sissy Spacek in the first feature adaptation back in 1976, as well as Julianne Moore ('Hannibal') who takes the part of Margaret White. The new and 'more faithful' adaptation from director Kimberly Peirce is of course based upon the classic novel from acclaimed horror author Stephen King. Portia Doubleday ('Youth in Revolt'), Alex Russell ('Chronicle'), Ansel Elgort, Judy Greer ('The Village') and Gabriella Wilde also star. Check out the new images below. »
In the early '80s, Sean Young's big-screen career rise was meteoric, jumping from a bit role opposite Bill Murray in the army comedy Stripes to starring with Harrison Ford in the sci-fi classic Blade Runner -- and then raising pulses with a steamy back-seat sex scene with Kevin Costner in a limo in No Way Out. But after a career lull in the '90s and various off-screen antics that turned her into a tabloid target, Young is back on the big screen and ready to show that she's here to stay in the haunting backwoods supernatural drama Jug Face.
Exclusive Trailer: Scary Thrills in 'Jug Face'
The story of a pregnant teen (Lauren Ashley Carter) looking to escape her small town because she fears she'll be sacrificed to a mysterious pit that kills in exchange for keeping the community safe, Jug Face casts Young as Loriss, the girl's »
Chloe Moretz ('Kick-Ass 2') gives an unnerving pose in a new promotional Comic Con banner for Kimberly Peirce's redo of 'Carrie'. Moretz once again dons her blood stained prom dress for the new asset which quite frankly is becoming a little tiresome. With the movie itself still months away from release let's hope the marketing department has something a little fresher up its sleeves. Julianne Moore ('Hannibal'), Portia Doubleday ('Youth in Revolt'), Alex Russell ('Chronicle'), Ansel Elgort, Judy Greer ('The Village') and sexy Brit Gabriella Wilde also star. Check out the new banner courtesy of Yahoo! Movies below. »
Whilst Kimberly Peirce's retelling of the classic Stephen King novel 'Carrie' is still more than 3 months away from release that hasn't stopped the delightful young Chloe Moretz ('Kick-Ass 2') popping up on the latest cover of Entertainment Weekly. Drenched in blood and sporting her pretty new (yet now ruined) Prom dress Miss Moretz pulls a sinister stare in her front cover pose for the magazine's special Comic-con edition. Julianne Moore ('Hannibal'), Portia Doubleday ('Youth in Revolt'), Alex Russell ('Chronicle'), Ansel Elgort, Judy Greer ('The Village') and Gabriella Wilde all co-star in the remake heading into Us theatres on 18 October. Check the cover below. »
It's almost impossible to think it now but at the turn of the millennium the hottest ticket in town was M Night Shyamalan. His chilling ghost story The Sixth Sense built around an "oh wow" third-act plot twist, scooped six Oscar nominations and delivered a massive $670 million box office payday. Success thrust Shyamalan to Christopher Nolan-like levels of adulation, but the years since have not been so kind. The wheels began to judder on the uneven The Village before a series of creative misfires with Lady in the Water, The Happening and the truly terrible Last Airbender derailed him completely. Even this month's After Earth (complete with Will Smith's A-list star power) is proving to be a less-than-prosperous outing for Hollywood's one-time golden boy.
We here at Digital Spy are more interested in celebrating Shyamalan's triumphs though, in particular his 2000 Sixth Sense follow-up Unbreakable - in our eyes his most accomplished movie. »
After cinematic atrocities like The Village, The Happening, and The Last Airbender, writer-director M. Night Shyamalan became such a joke to the degree that his name on the trailer for Devil--for which he earned a story credit.got laughs from moviegoers across America. Little wonder then that Columbia Pictures carefully hid his writer and director credits on the marketing for the Will Smith/Jaden Smith vanity project vehicle After Earth. But doing press for the picture, the twist-obsessed filmmaker has revealed something truly shocking: he was the ghostwriter for popular 1999 teen-centered rom-com She's All That. Speaking with Movies.com, Shyamalan spoke about his range, and then admitted that The Sixth Sense (which he wrote and directed) and Stuart Little (which he has a screenplay credit on) were not the only 1999 movies he worked on. After teasing he'd ghost-written a movie that year as well, he confesses: "I ghost-wrote the »
