Jessica Chastain seems to be everywhere this year: rattling around a haunted house in Crimson Peak, shooting off into outer space in The Martian, running from dinos in Jurassic World. The operative word there being “seems.” Jurassic World actually stars Bryce Dallas Howard, not Jessica Chastain, though a great many people seem unable to tell the difference.
To prove once and for all that they’re two separate people — and to help everyone figure out which is which — Howard and Chastain have taken to social media to unleash a friendly musical reminder. Except it might just make things worse. Watch the Jessica Chastain Bryce Dallas Howard video after the jump. Read More »

With the release of Jurassic World just a few days away, there’s plenty of retrospective looks back at the entire Jurassic Park franchise around the web. Some of them are pretty scathing, like Everything Wrong with The Lost World: Jurassic Park, while others are just adorable and fun, like the Sesame Street spoof of Jurassic Park that debuted this week.

This week brings the third attempt at a sequel to the modern classic that is Jurassic Park. If the buzz from the world premiere is any indicator, this might finally be a worthy sequel to Steven Spielberg‘s original dinosaur adventure. But that doesn’t make the disappointing sequels in between any better.
There was no way that any sequel could live up to the magic of Jurassic Park, but Spielberg tried with The Lost World: Jurassic Park. They upped the dinosaur action, introduced another tyrannosaurs rex, more velociraptors, but decided to throw any semblance of a decent script out the window. But that’s just the tip of what’s wrong with The Lost World, and the folks at Cinema Sins have taken 16 minutes to point out everything wrong with the obligatory sequel.

There are some of us who have been acquainted with Transformers for so long that we tend to forget that there’s a whole generation of kids who have no idea that the Autbots and Decepticons were doing battle decades before they hit the big screen in 2007. And that brings us to another edition of Kids React, this time with some youngsters learning that the Transformers actually hail from the 1980s. Their reactions are pretty priceless.

While people have to cut through endless red tape, fill out countless pieces of paperwork and wait weeks to become an official citizen of the United States, being a giant, fictional, radioactive lizard hasn’t stopped the King of Monsters from becoming an official citizen of Japan.
In case you hadn’t heard, when the Toho Cinemas Kabukicho/Hotel Gracery Shinjuku entertainment complex in Japan opened, one of the highlights was a full-scale Godzilla head that peeks out from the theater’s rooftop. And since Godzilla is a permanent fixture there, he just had to become a citizen. Find out more about Citizen Godzilla below. Read More »

Channing Tatum just seems like an awesome dude. I’ve interviewed him a few times, on the sets of 22 Jump Street and White House Down, and he genuinely is the person you’d expect him to be. Funny, kind, passionate, and totally humble about just how famous he’s become. A great example of this is a new viral video he’s part of by Omaze. That’s the company who creates amazing experiences for fans why buy a chance for a small charitable donation. They’re worked with Star Wars and others and their latest one will give fans a chance to attend the premiere of Magic Mike XXL with Tatum.
So how to promote it? Well, Tatum was made up as an old man at an early screening of Magic Mike XXL, interviewed the fans in disguise, then surprised them by revealing himself. The Magic Mike XXL contest video is below and it’s a whole lot of fun. Read More »
Another day has come, and even more craziness has surfaced on the internet in honor of Mad Max: Fury Road. We’ve already seen some custom LEGO vehicles inspired by George Miller‘s non-stop desert chase, not to mention a mash-up with Mario Kart, and an even stranger but perfect mash-up with The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt.
But now the glory of Mad Max: Fury Road is starting to seep into the real world. First up, the War Boys have taken to Amazon.com with over-excited reviews of an edible chrome spray (It’s not official Mad Max chrome spray, but it’s still a lovely spray). In addition, some skilled musicians have put together some intricate sheet music that will allow you to riff on the guitar just like the beloved Doof Warrior.

At first, you might think that directors Wes Anderson and Stanley Kubrick don’t have much in common. Their films couldn’t be on more opposite ends of the spectrum. However, Steve Ramsden used the similarity in the way Anderson and Kubrick frame shots as a reference point to create The Grand Overlook Hotel, a truly incredible mash-up of The Shining and The Grand Budapest Hotel.

There are certain aspects of San Andreas that ring true. The fault, for example, is real, as is the idea that California is long overdue for “the Big One.” But it probably won’t surprise you to learn that much of the rest of it is Hollywood fantasy.
U.S. Geological Survey seismologist Lucy Jones took to Twitter to help separate fact from fiction, pointing out the myriad ways in which this movie makes absolutely no sense — and also highlighting a few instances in which it’s dead on.
