Colin Trevorrow Says He Won't Direct More Jurassic Park Films

31 May 2015 10:45 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

With Colin Trevorrow and his cast now busy out stumping for Jurassic World around the globe, the director is somewhat naturally being asked about plans for more dino drama. But though the film is on track for a healthy opening and the studio no doubt wants to keep the franchise alive, Trevorrow, it would appear, is currently happy to have just one trip to the park on his CV. “Jurassic Park is like Star Wars. Different directors can give a different taste to each movie,” Trevorrow told Italian pop culture site Badtaste.it, which was translated by Coming Soon. “I would be involved in some way, but not as director.” So chances are he’ll have an executive producer role, offering input should another film head into production. There’s always a chance the studio could change his mind if the film does really well, but as in the case »

Having been absent from the big screen last year, 2015 will see the release of two Disney-Pixar films in Inside Out and The Good Dinosaur, and while most of the marketing so far has concentrated on the former (no surprise, given it’s out exactly one month today), the folks at Film Divider have scored a trio of character images from the latter, which we have for you here…

Title of Matt Reeves' Next 'Planet of the Apes' Sequel Confirmed

14 May 2015 2:34 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

'War of the Planet of the Apes': Did 'Apes 3' Get a Title?

14 May 2015 1:47 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The Planet of the Apes franchise is more popular than ever, thanks to the massive success of 2011's Rise of the Planet of the Apes and last year's sequel Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. Planet of the Apes 3 is currently in development, with Dawn of the Planet of the Apes director Matt Reeves coming back to direct, with 20th Century Fox setting a July 14, 2017 release date earlier this year. Today we have a new yet unconfirmed report which reveals the sequel will be entitled War Of The Planet of the Apes.

While we don't know for sure if 20th Century Fox is officially going with this title or not, it does make sense, since the end of Dawn of the Planet of the Apes revealed that a massive war between the humans and the apes is coming, after any hope for peace between the two sides was lost forever. »

The Next Planet Of The Apes Movie Has A Dangerous Title

14 May 2015 11:05 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Warning: Spoilers for Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes and Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes are in play. If you haven.t seen either film, bookmark this page and come back when you.re up to date. By the end of Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes, ape leader Caesar (Andy Serkis) and human leader Malcolm (Jason Clarke) had remained friends but sadly had to part company, anyway. The reason being that the events involving Koba.s sabotage and Dreyfus. (Gary Oldman) call for back up had basically locked humanity into the long, hard struggle that would eventually see the Planet Of The Apes come to historical fruition. While we.re not going to get to that point just yet, we do have an idea where things are going, as the new title for the 2017 sequel has been revealed. You.ve seen the Rise and survived »

Third 'Planet of the Apes' Movie Title Revealed, 'War' is On the Horizon

14 May 2015 11:02 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

We had the Rise of the Planet of the Apes and then the Dawn of the Planet of the Apes and next comes the War of the Planet of the Apes, or so says Collider in an article announcing the title for the third movie in the newly rebooted franchise, set for a July 14, 2017 release. It's a damned good title if getting the attention of your audience is your number one goal (which it is) and it also suggests this is going to be the most action-packed film in the franchise yet, though I don't know where you go after everything Matt Reeves threw into the last one. Reeves previously commented on the future of the franchise saying, "The first one is sort of how Caesar goes from humble beginnings to becoming a revolutionary... In Dawn, he really rose to occasion of becoming a leader in really challenging and difficult times. »

Freida Pinto To Join Serkis' "Jungle Book"

8 May 2015 5:53 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Freida Pinto ("Slumdog Millionaire," "Rise of the Planet of the Apes") is reportedly set to reunite with Andy Serkis in his directorial debut "Jungle Book: Origins" at Warner Bros. Pictures.

Based on Rudyard Kipling’s classic story, Pinto will join Matthew Rhys and Rohan Chand in the live-action roles rather than those doing the performance capture for the animals.

Serkis, Jonathan Cavendish, Christian Bale, Cate Blanchett and Benedict Cumberbatch star as some members of that performance capture cast.

Callie Kloves penned the script and Serkis will produce with Steve Kloves. The film is targeting an October 6th 2017 release.

Freida Pinto Heads To Jungle Book: Origins For Andy Serkis

8 May 2015 12:00 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

After acting alongside a mo-capped Andy Serkis in Rise of the Planet of the ApesSlumdog Millionaire actress Freida Pinto is reteaming with him for Warner Bros.’ Jungle Book: Origins.

Deadline reports that Pinto will take on a live-action role in the blockbuster pic, on which Serkis is set to make his directorial debut. She joins The Americans star Matthew Rhys, who is playing explorer John Lockwood, and Bad Words breakout Rohan Chand, who won the role of Mowgli, in the production, which will blend live-action and motion-capture to adapt the classic by Rudyard Kipling.

No details yet on which part the actress will play, but Jungle Book: Origins tells the story of an orphaned human boy raised by jungle animals including a friendly bear and a wise panther, so it’s perhaps likely that Pinto is playing either an explorer or Mowgli’s birth mother.

'Lord of the Rings' cinematographer Andrew Lesnie dies aged 59

28 April 2015 9:21 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Oscar-winner, who worked with Peter Jackson on the Lord of the Rings and Hobbit trilogies, most recently collaborated with Russell Crowe on The Water Diviner.

The unexpected death of Australian cinematographer Andrew Lesnie has sparked an outpouring of touching sentiment about his skills behind the camera, his huge contribution to his own and New Zealand cinema and also, from those who knew him, his decency and goodwill.

“After 17 years and eight movies together, the loss of Andrew is very hard to bear,” said Peter Jackson in a Facebook post this evening. He described him as “one of the great cinematographers of our time” and “an irreplaceable part of my family” who “always had my back”.

Jackson sought him out for the fantasy/adventure The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring because of the quality of his work on the Australian fairytale Babe. The New Zealand-based collaboration earned Lesnie the 2002 Academy Award for his cinematography »
