'Spider-Man: Homecoming' Review: New Reboot of Marvel Webslinger Really Is Amazing

1 hour ago | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

News Flash: Tom Holland is the best movie Spider-Man ever. He finds the kid inside the famous red onesie and brings out the kid in even the most hardened filmgoer. The last two Spidey epics had "Amazing" in the title, but let's face it – both films stirred more apathy than amazement. The only suspense came in wondering how long and hard a franchise could be milked. It may be a problem winning back the comic-book fans, but after that extended cameo in Captain America: Civil War and this new solo outing, »

Jurassic World Sequel Unveils the First Poster and Official Title

22 June 2017 10:05 AM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Hold onto your butts, people, because another Jurassic World is on the way. The sequel, which will be titled Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, is still a year away, but a few bits and pieces of information about it have made their way to the public - including the first poster! By all accounts, it sounds like the film is moving in the right direction (i.e. scarier and more suspenseful). Fingers crossed they let Bryce Dallas Howard put on some sneakers this time around. The Director J.A. Bayona, who directed A Monster Calls and The Impossible, will take the reins from Colin Trevorrow. Despite leaving to direct Star Wars: Episode IX, Trevorrow is staying on board to help out as an executive producer. In an interview with Jurassic Outpost, he touched on the collaborative environment he's fostered with Bayona. "I've been here, I'm in the office right now," he said. "I've been here every day since July working closely with J.A., listening to his instincts and honing the script with Derek [Connolly] to make sure it's something that all of us believe in." The Cast The sequel will see a very familiar face from the two original movies: Dr. Ian Malcolm! Jeff Goldblum is on board to reprise his role as the know-it-all mathematician, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Jurassic Park alum Bd Wong also confirmed his return to the series by sharing an Instagram of himself at Pinewood Studios with a raptor in February. So far the only official returning cast members from Jurassic World are Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard, who will reprise their roles as Owen and Claire. Trevorrow appeared on the Jurassic Cast podcast in September 2015 to discuss his plans for the sequel, which included details of how he sees Owen and Claire evolving throughout the next two films. "Owen is going to be in it, Claire is in it, and neither are going to be in the same place we left them in the first movie. And even though Claire is the one who evolves the most over the trilogy, it's her story that mirrors this changing world. Owen has sh*t to deal with. They've both opened Pandora's Box in Jurassic World and both of them are responsible for different elements of it." The rest of the cast includes an equal balance of Hollywood legends and newcomers, like James Cromwell, Toby Jones, Justice Smith, and Daniella Pineda. The Plot If you're worried about seeing another dinosaur-chasing-people-around-on-an-island movie, don't be. Trevorrow said that he thinks "the general audience [is] going to be down to explore where else we can go." Does that mean we're going to see another T. rex on the loose in San Diego, like in The Lost World? Although we'll have to wait and see, we do know one thing: it's going to leave us shaken. "It will be more suspenseful and scary," Trevorrow added. "And that's just the way it's designed, it's the way the story plays out. I knew I wanted Bayona to direct it long before anyone heard that was a possibility so the whole thing was just built around his skillset." The First Picture Walking in giant footsteps. #JW2 pic.twitter.com/fOZrFXp9md - Colin Trevorrow (@colintrevorrow) March 8, 2017 Producer Trevorrow shared this sneak peek on Twitter in March. The First Poster The new poster for the upcoming film debuted in June and includes the tag line: "Life finds a way" - aka Goldblum's famous line from the original film. The Release Date The film is slated to hit theaters on June 22, 2018. »

Jurassic World 2 Gets An Official Title & Poster

22 June 2017 8:44 AM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

A couple years back, Jurassic World hit theaters and set the world on fire. Whether your liked the film or not, there’s no denying that it reinvigorated the long-dormant franchise. No, it may not have had the film gravitas of the original Jurassic Park, but when all said and done, it brought the popcorn movie thrills, and generally pleased the mainstream audiences. The film has since gone down as the fourth highest grossing flick of all time.

Since then, we knew that not only a sequel, but an entire franchise resurgence was inevitable. It wasn’t long before it was confirmed that a June 2018 release was confirmed, but in true studio style, the name of the film was kept under wraps. For the life of me, I still don’t understand the reason behind keeping the names secret. Perhaps it has to do with spreading out the hype for the film over a longer period, or maybe they just take a long time to come up with the names.

Related: Has Jurassic World 2's Ending Been Rewritten?

Regardless, Universal Pictures has released the official title and poster for Jurassic World 2. Check it out below:

So Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom is the title they settled on for this movie. Perhaps even more of note is the familiar tagline on the poster that reads “life finds a way.” We look forward to seeing what this fallen kingdom is, but more than anything, I’m looking forward to seeing just how they plan on working Jeff Goldblum’s Ian Malcolm into the story.

We have one year to find out.

Here's a description of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom:

"With all of the wonder, adventure and thrills synonymous with one of the most popular and successful franchises in cinema history, this all-new motion-picture event sees the return of favorite characters and dinosaurs—along with new breeds more awe-inspiring and terrifying than ever before.  Welcome to Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom.  "Stars Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard return alongside executive producers Steven Spielberg and Colin Trevorrow for Universal Pictures and Amblin Entertainment’s Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom.  Pratt and Howard are joined by co-stars James Cromwell, Ted Levine, Justice Smith, Geraldine Chaplin, Daniella Pineda, "Toby Jones, Rafe Spall, while Bd Wong and Jeff Goldblum reprise their roles."Directed by J.A. Bayona (The Impossible), the epic action-adventure is written by Jurassic World’s director, Trevorrow, and its co-writer, Derek Connolly.  Producers Frank Marshall and Pat Crowley once again partner with Spielberg and Trevorrow in leading the team of filmmakers for this stunning installment.  Belén Atienza joins the team as a producer."

Jurassic World 2 Writer Discusses Goldblum, Dialogue From The Original Novel, And The Most Suspenseful Entry Yet

19 June 2017 6:00 PM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

The most exciting news surrounding Jurassic World 2 has been the fact that Jeff Goldblum is returning as Dr. Ian Malcolm. The character, and actor, are fan favorites, providing the most quotable lines from the original Jurassic Park film and bringing that quantifiable magic element that is...Goldblum. Whether, "When you gotta go, you gotta go," "Life always finds a way," or "Faster, must go faster," is your quote of choice, there's a million reasons to love Goldblum as Dr. Ian Malcolm.

Colin Trevorrow, director of Jurassic World and co-writer on the sequel, appeared on MTV's Happy Sad Confused podcast, when Jurassic World 2 inevitably came up. Trevorrow revealed previously that he turned to the original novel, Jurassic Park, by Michael Crichton, when writing the film, but he had this to add about the process and Jeff Goldblum's involvement in it:

“You know, I did rely on [Michael] Crichton for a lot. I used a lot of Crichton dialogue. Maybe one of my highlights of this whole process is Goldblum. Jeff Goldblum called me -- and I’m not going to do an impression -- but he was like, ‘Look, I’ve added a couple of things, and I thought I’d perform it for you.’ [Laughs] Oh, great, okay. So, we sat on the phone for an hour as he ran these lines, and I talked about it. And, I mean, that’s -- it was almost better than being there on set. It was great.”

Now, that's how you make Jurassic World 2 feel authentic! Simply return to dialogue and ideas from the original novel that have yet to be used in a film. Malcolm may be the most quotable character in the original film, but there are some doozys in that book that I'd love to hear Goldblum bring to life. 

Though we still don't know how large Goldblum's role will be in Jurassic World 2, or how Malcolm comes to be involved with terrifying dinosaurs for the third time, Trevorrow also assured Happy Sad Confused podcast that Jurassic World 2 would be the most suspenseful film in the entire series:

“It’s just deeper, more character-based, and it definitely leans into suspense, especially in the second half…It does have the big action in the middle. There’s a sequence in the middle that I’ve been watching -- I mean, I watch dailies every day -- but I’ve started to see stuff come together, and it’s just insane.”

J.A. Bayona (A Monster Calls, The Impossible) is directing the film from a script by Derek Connolly (Kong: Skull Island, Jurassic World) and the aforementioned Trevorrow. Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Jeff Goldblum, and Bd Wong all return from previous films in the Jurassic Park franchise.

Jurassic World 2 has a release date of June 22, 2018.

Alternative Black Panther design revealed in Captain America: Civil War concept art

16 June 2017 9:06 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Marvel illistrator Andy Park has shared a piece of concept art for Captain America: Civil War which gives us a look at an early alternate design for Chadwick Boseman’s Black Panther costume; take a look below…

See Also: Watch the teaser trailer for Black Panther here

Marvel’s “Captain America: Civil War” finds Steve Rogers leading the newly formed team of Avengers in their continued efforts to safeguard humanity. But after another incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability, headed by a governing body to oversee and direct the team. The new status quo fractures the Avengers, resulting in two camps—one led by Steve Rogers and his desire for the Avengers to remain free to defend humanity without government interference, and the other following Tony Stark’s surprising decision to support government oversight and accountability.

Trailer Watch: Naomi Watts Can’t Control Her Impulses in “Gypsy”

8 June 2017 11:01 AM, PDT | Women and Hollywood | See recent Women and Hollywood news »


“I used to believe that people determine their own lives. Yet there’s one force more powerful than free will — our desires,” says Naomi Watts in a new trailer for “Gypsy.” The two-time Oscar nominee plays a therapist who struggles to keep her personal and professional lives separate. Jean doesn’t just blur the boundaries of what’s appropriate behavior with her patients — she completely abuses the power and privilege that come along with her job. Her husband (Billy Crudup, “Jackie”) puts it more succinctly: “You need to control your fucking impulses,” he tells her.

The footage shows Jean manipulating her patients, lying to and cheating on her husband, and getting into all sorts of trouble. “We’re just here to listen. At the end of the night we go home to our lives and they live theirs,” a colleague tells her. But Jean clearly doesn’t relate to — or abide by — this philosophy.

“Gypsy” was created by Lisa Rubin. The first season of the drama features ten episodes, six of which were helmed by women. Sam Taylor-Johnson (“Fifty Shades of Grey,” “Nowhere Boy”), Victoria Mahoney (“Yelling to the Sky”), and Coky Giedroyc (“Harlots”) directed two episodes each.

Watts earned Oscar nods for “The Impossible” and “21 Grams.” Her recent credits include “3 Generations,” “Shut In,” and “Allegiant.”

“Gypsy” will premiere on Netflix June 30.

Even before she had kids, Naomi Watts felt she was destined to have sons.

“It’s funny, I always knew I would be the mother of boys,” says the actress. “It’s a psychic premonition.”

The two-time Oscar nominee sat down with People’s editor-in-chief for the latest episode of The Jess Cagle Interview and discussed motherhood and movies.

Throughout her career, Watts, 48, has also always played a mother to several boys in films such as The Ring, The Impossible and her latest drama The Book of Henry.

“I don’t have a lot of onscreen daughters,” admits Watts.

Jurassic World 2 will go to ‘darker places’, says Colin Trevorrow

6 June 2017 9:23 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Jurassic World director Colin Trevorrow, who is returning for the sequel in a writer and executive producer capacity for its sequel, has been speaking about Jurassic World 2, and promises that the film will go to much darker places than the first movie in the new series. J.A. Bayona (A Monster Calls) is directing the film, a director who has a hand for horror and more dramatic scenes having also worked on the likes of The Orphanage and The Impossible.

Speaking to Cinema Blend, Trevorrow said:

“J.A Bayona is very good at [creating scares]. There are things that he’ll just do with a shadow, or a rustling curtain on a wall. He’s so tapped into that kind of fear, especially the fear through the eyes of child. Which, you know, he and I are just simpatico. We may be the mirrors of each other. It is by far the most satisfying collaboration of my life. »

Director Colin Trevorrow Considers Jurassic World 2 To Be Much Scarier Than The First

6 June 2017 9:27 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

With a worldwide haul of $1.6 billion (!) and scores of relatively strong reviews, Jurassic World stands as a difficult act to follow.

Two years ago, Colin Trevorrow’s blockbuster single-handedly revived one of the most treasured franchises in film history, and though it wasn’t without faults of its own – for all its cutting-edge VFX, a lacklustre story quickly became the biggest points of contention once the Indominus Rex was left sleeping with the fishes – Trevorrow and Derek Connolly’s revival helped lay the foundations on which Universal plans to construct a full-blown trilogy of dino movies.

The second, simply titled Jurassic World 2 for now, is still gestating in production ahead of its theatrical release next summer – June 2018, to be specific – and it’s already signalled a changing of the guard.

Friendly Neighborhood Spider-man: Homecoming Trailer Is Crazy Fun

24 May 2017 9:01 AM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Sony Pictures has released a lively new trailer for Spider-man: Homecoming.

In his review for Captain America: Civil War, Jim Batts says:

“…the breakout new addition to the Marvel movie universe may be Tom Holland as Peter Parker, the amazing Spider-Man. Holland (so great in the 2012 disaster drama The Impossible), brings a vulnerable charm to Pete while exuding boyish enthusiasm (and lots of “smack talk” chatter) to ole’”webhead”, stealing every scene, and leaving us anxiously awaiting his screen return in Spider-man: Homecoming. Now this is our Spidey!”

This is bound to be one of biggest hits of the Summer!

A young Peter Parker/Spider-Man (Tom Holland), who made his sensational debut in Captain America: Civil War begins to navigate his newfound identity as the web-slinging super hero in Spider-man: Homecoming.

Genre Kings Weigh Their Market Options

21 May 2017 7:00 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Catalan genre films come with high expectations this year, with movies from two heavyweight auteurs, Jaume Balagueró’s “Muse” and Rodrigo Cortés’ “Down a Dark Hall,” looking set to hit major festivals.

But while names such as J.A. Bayona, Balagueró and Paco Plaza are regarded with fanboy reverence, Catalonia’s genre film movement, which boasts “[Rec]” and “The Orphanage” among landmarks, is undergoing market mutation.

“Spanish thrillers keep selling, although the best sales are titles with high production values and political or social elements,” says Film Factory Ent. Vicente Canales, citing “Marshland.” For horror, the key is “to go theatrical, fleeing from the B-movies, which is a saturated sector.”


Film Community Powers Catalonia’s Rebound From Recession

Another key may now be language; major directors are shooting in English, opening projects up to international casts.

Coming out the Cannes Film Festival, here’s a first look at director Claire McCarthy’s Ophelia.

Currently in production in Prague, the cast includes Daisy Ridley (upcoming Murder on the Orient Express, Star Wars: The Last Jedi), Two-time Academy Award nominee Naomi Watts (Divergent series, The Impossible), Golden Globe winning and Academy Award nominee Clive Owen (Closer, Children of Men, upcoming Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets), George MacKay (Captain Fantastic, Pride), Devon Terrell (Barry) and Tom Felton (Harry Potter series).

Set in the 14th Century but spoken in a contemporary voice, Ophelia is a dynamic re-imagining of Shakespeare’s Hamlet. Written by Semi Chellas, Ophelia is adapted from the book by Lisa Klein.

Ophelia (Ridley) takes center stage as the Queen’s (Watts) most trusted lady-in-waiting. Beautiful and intelligent, she soon captures the attention of the handsome Prince Hamlet and a forbidden love blossoms. »

Cannes: Film Factory Takes Carlos Vermut’s ‘Quien Te Cantara’ (Exclusive)

Film Factory Entertainment (“Wild Tales,” “The Summit”) has acquired international rights to “Quién te cantara,” the third film from Carlos Vermut, whose sophomore outing “Magical Girl” won best film and director at the 2015 San Sebastian Festival, cementing his position as a Spanish talent to watch.  

Lead-produced by Apache Films’ Enrique Lopez Lavigne (“The Impossible”), and now in post-production, “Quien te cantara” stars Najwa Nimri (“Sex and Lucia”) as a fallen diva, once one of the world’s most famous singers, forced to return to the stage to hold on to her family fortune. But one month before her comeback, she has an accident, and wakes up with amnesia. 

“This harrowing story, a female-driven melodrama, positions the director as the natural successor of Pedro Almodovar and his stylish and complex women portraits,” Film Factory said in a statement.

Spanish Broadcasters Bankroll Film Growth

19 May 2017 7:00 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

While Hollywood might have moved away from producing mid-budget movies for adults, Spain has moved in. Two broadcaster-backed production houses, Mediaset España’s Telecinco Cinema and Atresmedia Cine, can now create event movies that can blow even Hollywood’s biggest blockbusters out of the water in Spain.

They have snagged Academy Award nominations, including for Naomi Watts in “The Impossible,” and yielded some of the world’s highest-grossing independent movies; “The Impossible” garnered $180 million worldwide. Though all made out of Spain, given their high budgets, they attract Hollywood partners, especially if shot in English. Produced by Apaches Ent., Telecinco Cinema and Peliculas La Trini, “A Monster Calls” was financed and distributed by Focus Features, River Road, Participant Media and Lionsgate.

They also look set to yield some of Spain’s biggest international sellers, such as Telecinco Cinema’s upcoming “Marrowbone,” a Cannes 2016 sales hit for Lionsgate.

Africa-Set Thriller ‘Sara’s Notebook’ Comes to Cannes from Film Factory (Exclusive)

Boarding one of Spain’s biggest box office bets for early 2018, Barcelona-based Film Factory Entertainment has acquired international rights to “Sara’s Notebook” (El Cuaderno de Sara), from Telecinco Cinema.

Film Factory’s Vicente Canales will introduce the film to buyers in Cannes, presenting a first image promo.

Past movies from Telecinco Cinema, which has co-produced the No. 1 box office champ in Spain over four of the last five years, include J.A. Bayona’s “The Impossible,” “A Monster Calls,” “Spanish Affair” and its 2015 sequel. Telecinco Cinema, owned by broadcaster Mediaset España,  grossed $77.5 million in 2014 with “Spanish Affair,” four times the take of its nearest Hollywood rival, “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes” ($17.5 million).

That has, of course, encouraged Hollywood studios to move into the distribution of such titles. In the case of “Sara’s Notebook,” Disney distributes in Spain.

This week saw the Blu-ray and DVD release of the critically-acclaimed drama A Monster Calls, which first debuted at last year’s Toronto and London Film Festivals.

The film, directed by J.A. Bayona, the filmmaker behind The Impossible and who is currently filming Jurassic World 2, is a rich and visual delight but also a touching and profound story of a family rip apart by grief. Newcomer Lewis MacDougall stars as the lead character Connor, who is trying to come to terms with his sick mother Lizzie (Felicity Jones), who is suffering from cancer. His grandmother (played by Sigourney Weaver) arrives to take care of him but it’s only through the guidance of a magical monster (voiced by Liam Neeson) that helps him come to terms with what is happening around him.
