Jeff Goldblum movies: 15 greatest films ranked from worst to best
Jeff Goldblum has returned to one of his most successful roles with Dr. Ian Malcolm in the film “Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom.” Goldblum first played the character in the blockbuster film “Jurassic Park” back in 1993. The actor has had a highly successful career in film, television and theater for over 40 years.

Goldblum’s film career started in a particularly auspicious manner since his first four films were all highly regarded works of the early 1970s: “Death Wish”, “California Split”, “Nashville” and “Next Stop, Greenwich Village.” He continued to work in film and television for the next four decades and even returned to Broadway a few times, most notably in the highly regarded Martin McDonough play “The Pillowman.”

Along the way Goldblum has picked up a number of award nominations including an Oscar nomination for Best Live Action Short Film for “Little Surprises.” He received an Emmy nomination for a guest

It ranks fourth among opening weekends for import films, sitting behind “The Fate of the Furious,” “Avengers: Infinity War,” and “Transformers: The Last Knight.”

Review: Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom Goes Places Earlier Films Fear To Tread

For the past quarter century, the Jurassic Park films have been synonymous with summer blockbuster fare. Based on Michael Crichton's novel (itself an inferior re-working of his own Westworld) the first film in the franchise set the world alight in 1993 with its groundbreaking special effects and use of Digital Theater Sound. Granted, it was one of Steven Spielberg's dumber films, speeding over both cerebral moments and plot holes in favor of thrills, but he was masterful in building up anticipation for some truly rewarding money-shots. And the term "money-shots" should be taken literally here, as the impressive leap forwards in visual effects was astronomical in cost, so their use had to be limited to mere seconds. Those restrictions no longer count these days, and...

Tom Holland Jokes About Spidey’s Death In Avengers: Infinity War

What with the creation and dispersing of fake scripts, NDAs, and potentially hundreds of millions of dollars on the line, it’s easy to lose sight of the fact that we’re all just trafficking in movies. Nonetheless, it’s refreshing to see high profile talent take their job a little less seriously. Case in point: this week’s Twitter interaction between Tom Holland and J.A. Bayona.

A few days back, Entertainment Weekly posted an article to the social media platform regarding the plot of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom. Apparently, the film’s director, Bayona, revealed the storyline to Tom Holland during production on The Impossible, a 2012 drama/thriller on which the two collaborated.

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom Has Big Opening Day in China with $34.4M
While fans in North America still have to wait exactly one week until Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom opens in theaters, the summer sequel had a big opening day in China. Early reports reveal that Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom has taken in a whopping $34.4 million, which could put it on track for one of the biggest debuts for a Hollywood movie in the Middle Kingdom this year. While it likely won't come close to Avengers: Infinity War's record-breaking $191 million opening weekend, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom is expected to out-gross other top U.S. performers in China such as Black Panther ($65.1 million) and Ready Player One ($61.6 million).

Chinese box office tracker EntGroup put the opening day projection a bit higher than the studio's, at $36 million, but regardless, Jurassic World has already made a big mark on the international box office. The movie has already rolled out in 49 international markets, largely to

‘Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom’ Stomps to $34.4 Million Opening Day in China

‘Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom’ Stomps to $34.4 Million Opening Day in China
Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom” has roared into China with an impressive $34.4 million on its first day on Friday.

The opening weekend for Universal and Amblin’s “Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom” isn’t likely to match “Avengers: Infinity War,” which launched with $199.3 million in China two weeks after its global debut and went on to become the third-biggest release ever in the country, with $369.7 million to date. The dinosaur tentpole will, however, likely finish its opening frame in China well ahead of two other major Hollywood titles — “Black Panther” ($65 million) and “Ready Player One” ($61.6 million).

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom” began rolling out on June 6 in overseas markets to avoid going up against soccer’s World Cup. The sequel’s international total, through Thursday, was $202.3 million from 49 markets, excluding its take in China.

in 2015, “Jurassic World” grossed $229 million in China. Among Hollywood films that year, it trailed only “Furious 7” with $391 million

Michael Giacchino Scores With Summer Blockbusters ‘Incredibles 2,’ ‘Jurassic World’ Sequel

Michael Giacchino Scores With Summer Blockbusters ‘Incredibles 2,’ ‘Jurassic World’ Sequel
Two of the summer’s most anticipated movies, “Incredibles 2” and “Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom,” are franchise follow-ups with music by the same composer. Surprisingly, neither score relies much on familiar themes.

It might have been a no-brainer for tunesmith Michael Giacchino to fall back on his well-known theme for “The Incredibles” (written in 2004) or on John Williams’ even more famous fanfare for the original “Jurassic Park” from 1993. Both make fleeting appearances in the new films, but otherwise the scores are entirely new.

“There is a tendency these days to just plug and play when it comes to scores from past years,” says the Oscar-winning composer (“Up”). “Many times, it derails what you’re trying to do narratively. And the last thing I want to do is just rehash what we did before. I like to bring something new and then lean on old themes only when you absolutely need them.

Walk of Fame Honoree Jeff Goldblum on ‘Jurassic World’ Return, Favorite Memes

Walk of Fame Honoree Jeff Goldblum on ‘Jurassic World’ Return, Favorite Memes
Though he’s been working in films since 1974 — when he played Freak #1 in “Death Wish” — and starred in some of the biggest blockbusters of all time, it seems like only recently that the whole world fell for the charms of Jeff Goldblum. Perhaps it’s the abundance of memes that have taken over the internet; asked for his personal favorite and he cites his “Jurassic Park” co-star Sam Neill “putting his cheek next to the giant shirtless Jeff Goldblum and riding the waves of my breath.” It could be the wry, halting delivery that makes him so much fun to imitate. Or the sense of humor he has about his own image, such as gamely reading “thirst tweets” about himself for Buzzfeed.

This golden age has not gone unnoticed by the star himself. “Things seem to be flourishing right now,” he says. “For whatever reason, I seem to be in a growth spurt.

Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard Try (and Fail) to Explain Jurassic Park in 60 Seconds
If you've never watched the original Jurassic Park, Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard have your back . . . or at least they tried to have your back. The stars of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom came together to explain the original film in 60 seconds, but things didn't go as planned. As it turns out, explaining the 1993 classic takes time, but Pratt and Howard do come pretty close to nailing it in under a minute.

"It all starts on an island in the middle of nowhere, where some dude who looks like a British Colonel Sanders creates an amusement park with animals," Pratt says before Howard adds, "Although we're not talking about monkeys." Watch Pratt and Howard refresh your memory, just in time for the 25th anniversary of Jurassic Park's release, in the video above.

‘Avengers: Infinity War’ Joins the $2 Billion Club as Marvel Cements ‘Star Wars’ Dominance

‘Avengers: Infinity War’ Joins the $2 Billion Club as Marvel Cements ‘Star Wars’ Dominance
Avengers: Infinity War” hit $2 billion worldwide, making it the fourth title to do so at current ticket prices — but that’s not the full story. There’s nothing nefarious here; it’s tricky to calculate combined all-time grosses. The boom in foreign theaters, exchange-rate fluctuations, and unreliable historical data are among the elements that make all-time comparisons less reliable than domestic estimates.

All that said: Slow clap for Disney/Marvel’s “Infinity War,” as only a handful of films belong to the $2 billion club.

Titanic” is tops with around $4 billion; “Avatar” is $3 billion. “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” is well over $2 billion. (All three also crossed $2 billion worldwide in their initial release.)

“Avengers” should also pass “The Force Awakens,” another sign of how Marvel is besting the Star Wars franchise. (“The Force Awakens” remains far ahead in domestic.)

In adjusted box office, the $2-billion ranks include two Spielberg films (“Jurassic Park” and “E.

Jeff Goldblum Would Be Open To Returning To The Fly

Ask a random person what their favorite Jeff Goldblum role is and chances are they’ll either tell you it’s Dr. Ian Malcolm in the Jurassic Park movies or Seth Brundle in The Fly. So, if one of those two eccentric scientists can make a return in the new Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, perhaps it’s not so absurd to think that we could one day see Goldblum again in some future remake or reboot of David Cronenberg’s body horror classic.

After all, the actor recently said he’d be open to the idea of revisiting the series that once brought us the grotesque and heartrending Brundlefly, revealing the following in a recent interview:

I don’t think my character would be involved because of course I got tragically mutated with the fly and then the machine, oh boy…But maybe I show up as a grandchild of the original Seth Brundle,
