Derek Connolly, who penned the box-office smash “Jurassic World” as well as the film’s upcoming sequel, has been brought on to write the latest draft of Sony’s “Metal Gear Solid” adaptation. Jordan Vogt-Roberts, Connolly’s collaborator on “Kong: Skull Island,” will direct the feature film. Avi Arad is producing. Created by Hideo Kojima, the “Megal Gear […]
“Jurassic World” director Colin Trevorrow, whose latest, “The Book of Henry,” hit theaters last weekend, addressed the scathing reviews that the drama has received, calling it “hugely disappointing.” “It’s a little heartbreaking, without getting too personal,” he told the Empire Podcast. “It came to us as a bit of a shock because we had screened...

An old fan-favourite appears in a new set photo from Jurassic World 2... but does this hint we're heading back to the old Jurassic Park?
Leaked set photos from 'Jurassic World 2' appear to confirm the return of a deadly dinosaur last seen in Steven Spielberg's 1993 original.
Chris Pratt AKA Star Lord, legendary outlaw, is receiving his own corner of Hollywood later this month when he'll be awarded a Walk of Fame star of his own.
‘Jurassic Park’ fans waited fourteen years for a fourth film in the classic series, and when it finally arrived it made a huge impact – becoming the fourth highest-grossing film of all time. More specifically, young people love them, and for younger generations ‘Jurassic World’ would have been a first taste of the series. Acting as a sequel and soft reboot, ‘Jurassic World’ continued the story by realising original park-owner John Hammond’s vision and showing us a dinosaur theme park that had been up and running without incident for six or seven years.
James Cromwell, currently starring in HBO’s “The Young Pope,” has been cast in Universal Pictures and Amblin Entertainment’s “Jurassic World” sequel. The studio is keeping details about Cromwell’s character information under wraps. “Jurassic World” generated $1.67 billion worldwide in 2015 — the fourth-best grosser of all time, trailing only “Avatar,” “Titanic” and “Star Wars: The...

‘Jurassic World’ was one of 2015’s biggest movies, making an incredible $1.6 billion during its cinema run and attracted plenty of attention regarding its lead woman, Bryce Dallas Howard, largely her skill for outrunning a T.rex in high heels. Sequel director JA Bayona has addressed the issue by clarifying that Claire (Dallas Howard) will not be wearing any inappropriate footwear hence forth. When Bayona spoke to Birth.Movies.Death, he was quick to dismiss the ongoing internet discussion about how (and why) Claire ran in heels.
When ‘Jurassic World’ hit cinemas in June of 2015 no one could have predicted what a huge hit it’d be. With J.A. Bayona directing the anticipated follow-up, the question on everyone’s lips is what it’ll be about.
‘Jurassic World 2’ is starting to take shape, with the apparent confirmation that B.D. Wong will reprise his role as scientist Dr. Henry Wu in J.A. Bayona’s anticipated sequel. Wong was the only actor in 2015’s enormously successful sequel to reprise his role from Steven Spielberg’s 1993 classic. The plot revealed that in the intervening years, Wong had become a respected and leading scientist in the field of genetics.
‘Jurassic World 2’ will naturally continue the story started in 2015’s soft reboot of the dino-loving franchise, but it will also have a strong connection to Steven Spielberg’s 1993 original, according to new director JA Bayona. Asked by Cinema Blend the extent to which the sequel will be ‘Jurassic Park 5’ as well as ‘Jurassic World 2’, he said: “That’s a good question! I think somehow it’s both. It’s a very good question, and what we’re doing is a sequel to ‘Jurassic World’, but it’s definitely the fifth chapter of a longer saga.
UPDATE: It looks like ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ may have actually surpassed ‘Jurassic World’s opening weekend haul after US box office figures may have come in higher than originally estimated.
Joss Whedon made no bones about how difficult a balancing act editing 'Age Of Ultron’ was, and although the movie as a whole was a triumph, there are elements within that, when isolated, do not hold up quite as well. This isn’t so much a 'plot hole’ as a 'plot huh?’ because at no point is it adequately explained what Thor’s soggy vision is, what it achieves, how he has it and why he needed Selvig (other than maybe he just needed a lift). If the Indominus can detect thermal signatures, why does being covered in gasoline protect Chris Pratt from being eaten?
It’s more or less assured that ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ will become the biggest movie of all time at the worldwide box office. The predictions coincide with another bold move by Disney, who bought Lucasfilm for what now seems like a bargain price of $4 billion in 2012. It’s safe to say that with its pedigree and past performances at the box office on six previous occasions, coupled with recent patterns of spending by moviegoers that surpassing this already staggering achievement is more than likely. The likely performance of the movie, directed by J.J. Abrams and starring Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, John Boyega and Oscar Isaac, alongside original stars Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford and Carrie Fisher, will raise the bar for James Cameron’s long-in-gestation 'Avatar’ sequels.
‘Star Wars 7’ may not have hit cinemas just yet, but we already know who will helm the final film in the sequel trilogy… and it’s none other than Colin Trevorrow. The 38-year-old filmmaker was previously tipped to direct one of the upcoming ‘Star Wars’ sequels… but after an official announcement at Disney’s D23 Expo, it looks as though Colin Trevorrow will be heading up ‘Star Wars 9’ “Today at D23, Walt Disney Studios Chairman Alan Horn announced that writer-director Colin Trevorrow will direct Star Wars: Episode IX, which is set for release in 2019.” - Han Solo Gets A Star Wars Spin-Off - 7 Actors Who Hated Being In Star Wars - San Diego Comic Con Bans Selfie Sticks Of course, he recently brought ‘Jurassic World’ to the big screen, and it was no small triumph.
After the huge success of ‘Jurassic World’, it looks as though a sequel is officially on the cards… and will see the return of Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard. Officially announced by Universal Pictures, it looks as though the inevitable ‘Jurassic World’ sequel is definitely going ahead. And who can blame them – with ‘Jurassic World’ reaching a staggering $1.52 billion at the box office, it’s proved that there’s still plenty of life in the prehistoric film franchise. - Working Tron Lightcycle Goes To Auction - 10 Hunger Games In-Jokes To Blow Your Mind - Mel Gibson At Mad Max: Fury Road Premiere Starring Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard, ‘Jurassic World’ stunned cinemagoers with the next instalment of the ‘Jurassic Park’ saga – heading back to the original island to find out exactly what happened to all of those impressive creations. And the story isn’t going to end there.
There was the fallen ’80s idol (Robert Downey Jr.), the virtually unknown Australian (Chris Hemsworth), and the guy who’d already played another superhero (Chris Evans). As Guardians director James Gunn admitted on SiriusXM, when the idea of Pratt was first floated his reaction was, “The chubby guy from Parks and Rec?! That’s stupid!” But Pratt won Gunn over, and looks to be winning over plenty more too: He’s had stellar reviews for Guardians Of The Galaxy so far, and he’s still enjoying the afterglow from this year’s animated blockbuster The Lego Movie in which he voiced the hapless hero. “We just drank and smoked weed and worked minimal hours, just enough to cover gas, food, and fishing supplies.”) But when he served Commando star Rae Dawn Chong while working as a waiter in a branch of Bubba Gump Shrimp Company, she cast him in a short horror movie she was directing called Cursed Part 3, flying him to L.A. for filming. TV Breakthrough Pratt stayed in California, and within two years, had landed a regular TV gig on The WB’s teen soap Everwood, playing the older brother of Emily VanCamp’s character.
