The Girl on the Train spoiler review

Paula HawkinsThe Girl on the Train is an incredibly entertaining and bleak page-turner. The deeply troubled characters are what make the novel exciting. The more pages turned, the more the characters reveal themselves, and usually in some pretty troubling, unnerving, or darkly enjoyable ways. Hawkins’ novel is arguably a better drama than it is a thriller, and the same could be said of Tate Taylor‘s adaptation. The Help director’s film is a sometimes-above-average thriller that thrives mostly on its performances.

LEGO Jurassic World: The Indominus Escape'

Universal Pictures has teamed up with LEGO to produce a 24-minute animated short film which acts as a prequel to Jurassic World. Titled LEGO Jurassic World: The Indominus Escape, the short film shows how the Indominus Rex came to be and what happened when it escaped.

That’s right, according to this new piece of Jurassic World canon, the movie wasn’t even the first time this genetically engineered dino escaped and apparently Chris Pratt‘s character rides the T-Rex. And of course, this being a LEGO production means we get all the fun, ridiculous and playful humor we’ve come to expect from the building block brand. Hit the jump to watch the Jurassic World short in its entirety.

The Key and Peele star said he was interested in making a horror movie that “does jump off of racial fears” and “the fears of being a black man today.” With his directorial debut, Peele wanted a protagonist he doesn’t see in horror movies. The director has made a horror movie that explores race, but he’s also made a horror movie that looks wild, violent, a little funny, and with something to say.

Jurassic World behind the scenes footage

What’s the point of showing up on a talk show if you don’t have a movie, tv show or music album to promote? It seems like almost everything these days is timed for the sole purpose of spiking the social shares and trying to create an explosion of buzz in the real world. Movie promotion usually comes in two waves, with the release of a film theatrically, and then later around the home video release. After that, we usually don’t see more material from a film because film studios believe there isn’t a point. But now in the world of cinematic universes and not just franchises but brands that stretch into the far reaches, maybe they see a reason?

I recently discovered that Universal Pictures has been updating the Jurassic Park youtube account with new content on almost a daily basis. The new content is anything from featurettes that originally appeared on the home video release, to behind the scenes b-roll footage, to rough-cut dailies, previs and more. Now I know you might not be as big of a fan of Jurassic World as I am, but I think you might be able to find some enjoyment in the wealth of content that has been released. I’ve always found it frustrating how much footage is captured during the making of a film, yet only a small percentage of it makes it to the home video release. I hope more movie studios can learn from this.

Hit the jump to check out some of the highlights from the Jurassic World behind the scenes footage.
