There’s little doubt Dear Zachary is one of the most heartbreaking films every made. The 2008 documentary by Kurt Kuenne started innocently enough as the director tried to make a movie about his deceased friend for his yet-to-be-born son. But as the story unfolded, reality turned into a nightmare for the child, his family and, to a lesser extent, anyone who watched it. Dear Zachary was so powerful and upsetting, it ended up having an effect on political issues in Canada. It’s currently available to stream on Netflix and I can’t recommend it highly enough. Just don’t forget the tissues.
Well in yet another weird twist of fate for the film, the director has now sold the rights to Universal Cable Productions to develop it as a miniseries. Read more about the Dear Zachary TV show below. Read More »

Almost 20 years ago we heard Sean Connery voice a dragon in the film Dragonheart. It’s a film that has its fans, though it’s been a while since we heard anyone pining fondly for that particular story. In 2015, however, fan patience will be rewarded with Dragonheart 3: The Sorcerer’s Curse, which Universal will release direct to digital and disc. If you find yourself wondering where Dragonheart 2 went, you’re not alone. Regardless, have a look at the Dragonheart 3 trailer below. (But don’t expect Connery, as this time a different knight, Sir Ben Kingsley, is voicing the dragon.) Read More »
The Jurassic World trailer showed us quite a bit, but one thing we didn’t see was one of the series’ signature dinosaurs: the Tyrannosaurus Rex. As a follow-up to that trailer release, however, the film’s official website has launched, and with it comes the first look at the film’s T-rex. Granted, it looks like, well, a T-rex. And what we see is merely a pair of CG renders of the beast. But that’s better than nothing. At the same time, director Colin Trevorrow has provided some commentary on the trailer, and his explanation of a few different points will definitely be of interest to fans who have questions about the new film. See the Jurassic World T-rex images below, along with some talk from the director. Read More »
Update From Editor Peter Sciretta: I have added another Jurassic World fan edit trailer, this one longer and more of a throwback to the original 1993 Spielberg film Jurassic Park. Watch it now after the jump.
There’s a lot in the Jurassic World trailer, as we thoroughly dissected yesterday. But one editor had the idea that less is more, and while it’s not our place to say that the first look at the film showed too much there’s something persuasive in this short Jurassic World trailer. The one-minute edit of the footage is cut very much to the tune of the recent Godzilla trailers that worked so well. While it can’t fully emulate those edits thanks to the limitations of using footage already cut for a different trailer, there’s a vibe here that works really well. Read More »
Universal Pictures gave fans a nice little holiday gift Tuesday with the early release of the Jurassic World trailer. It was the first big look at what director Colin Trevorrow has in store for the iconic Steven Spielberg/Michael Crichton franchise. The answer is the fulfillment of John Hammond’s dream: a dinosaur theme park where no expense is spared. However, after years, things are getting a bit stale. So the Jurassic World scientists create a new dinosaur. And we know that’s a big no-no.
As expected, reactions to the Jurassic World trailer ran the gamut from wide-eyed wonder to eye-rollingly dumb. People in the latter camp cited some of the new ways dinosaurs are being used at the park as an argument, as well as some of the computer generated effects. Now, the movie comes out in seven months so all of the effects will be finished and look better by then, but one shot in particular won’t. In fact, one shot in particular was made only for the trailer and will not be in the movie. Find out which below. Read More »
Guillermo del Toro is pulling together the script for Pacific Rim 2, and it sounds like Charlie Day and Burn Gorman will be back for the sequel. Their characters are being written into the script, at least. We know that some of the characters from the original film won’t be back in a big way for the sequel, though they may show up in a proposed third movie. So the inclusion of those two guys is one of the first real bits of info we have about the second chapter of the big robots vs. monsters series that was given a shot in the arm with the formal announcement of the big-screen sequel.
