Despite the recent additions of Harry Potter’s Diagon Alley, a lot of the earlier attractions and experiences at Universal Studios Orlando feel dated. And it seems like the Universal Orlando mandate is to replace a lot of the older attractions with new experiences (I hope they decide to refurbish and update E.T. Adventure rather than replace it entirely). The latest rumor is that the Twister…Ride it Out attraction will be replaced with a ride that will take us inside the mind of Jimmy Fallon. So essentially they would be replacing an old attraction based on a 1990’s movie with an experience ride based on a 2015 late night television series. More details, after the jump.

This fall brings the terrifying elements of the highest mountain on the planet to the big screen in the mountain climbing drama Everest starring Jason Clarke, Josh Brolin, John Hawkes, Jake Gyllenhaal and more.
While it would be easy to shoot an entire film like this on a sound stage and use visual effects to complete the scenery, director Baltasar Kormakur (2 Guns, Contraband) wanted the cast to experience the elements firsthand by shooting on location in Nepal on the foothills of Everest, as well as the Italian Alps. Now an Everest featurette shows what that was like for the stars of the film, and you can watch it below. Read More »

In March, we told you that Japanese video game company Nintendo announced plans to team with Universal Studios to bring their video game properties to life at Universal Parks & Resorts. At the time we joked about the possibility of a real life Nintendo-Land with a side scrolling Mario experience, a Mario Kart racing ride, and more.

Today, Jurassic World officially passed The Avengers on the worldwide box office gross chart to become the #3 highest grossing movie ever. The only two films ahead of Jurassic World are James Cameron’s monstrous hits, Best Picture winner Titanic at #2 and sci-fi spectacle Avatar at #1.

Before Jurassic World even hit theaters, it was already getting spoofed online with a completely wacky edit of the trailer, complete with velociraptors riding motorcycles alongside Chris Pratt (don’t forget you can bid to win that motorcycle starting July 23rd).
And now that the sequel has been unleashed, it’s time for the entire preceding Jurassic Park trilogy to get a flashy makeover to be more in tune with Jurassic World. More specifically, everyone will now be wearing high heels. And I do mean everyone.

Not too long ago, automobile company Lexus teased that they might have a working hoverboard on the way, which is perfect since 2015 is the year Marty McFly and Doc Brown travel to the future in Back to the Future Part II. But we’re still waiting for more on the functional hoverboard front.
In the meantime, the folks at DIY Prop Shop have put together a helpful guide for fans who may not have the money to pay for the eventual real hoverboard, but still want to show off their future tech at home. The video shows how to build a hoverboard for just $33, and it actually looks pretty damn good.

This past weekend, Jurassic World crossed yet another massive blockbuster milestone by hitting $600 million domestic, putting it at #4 on the all-time domestic box office list, with an eye towards passing up The Avengers at #3 before it leaves theaters.
But if you’ve seen Jurassic World enough in theaters, maybe you’d like to bring a piece of the movie home with you. No, sadly you can’t have dinosaurs as pets yet (hasn’t the movie shown you that’s a bad idea anyway?), but you can get your hands on Chris Pratt’s motorcycle that takes him cruising alongside his raptor friends, because it’ll be up for auction on eBay this week.
