Sam Neill in Jurassic World 2

Just over the weekend, we got word from Sam Neill that he recently spent a couple days on the set of Thor: Ragnarok, shooting some kind of small role in the Marvel sequel. And with Jeff Goldblum already having a role in the film as The Grandmaster, that means Marvel is hosting a mini Jurassic Park reunion. Sadly that might be as close as we get to Neill and Goldblum getting back together.

While out promoting Hunt for the Wilderpeople (which was also directed by Thor: Ragnarok helmer Taika Waititi), Neill was asked if he might ever return to the world of dinosaurs in something like Jurassic World 2. Rather than dodging the question or flat out saying now, he offered a narrative reason as to why Dr. Alan Grant may not be available to return. Read More »

Jumanji Sequel Plot

The primary cast of the Jumanji sequel from Sony Pictures has already been confirmed with Dwayne Johnson, Kevin Hart, Jack Black and Karen Gillan taking the lead roles. In addition, a photo from the set recently showed us how they’ll all look in the jungles of the infamous board game. However, it turns out that this new take on Jumanji has been given a contemporary twist.

As news of four new young cast members hit the web this weekend, so did rumored details of what the Jumanji sequel is about. Rather than focusing on a board game, this time a group of kids get sucked into a video game version of Jumanji. So how do our previously announced cast members come into play? Find out about the Jumanji sequel plot details and the young new cast members after the jump. Read More »
