A near $209 million opening automatically makes a movie a cultural milestone. Such is currently happening with Colin Trevorrow‘s Jurassic World. So far, the funniest result by far is this set of photos. A few zookeepers have taken to social media to recreate the image above, which features Owen Grady (Chris Pratt) carefully controlling a heard of raptors. So what does it look like when a real zookeeper emulates his pose with a bunch of walruses, ostriches or chickens? Find out about the Jurassic World zookeeper meme below.
UPDATE: After posting this story Wednesday morning, this exploded online. See a ton of additional images below.

When you sign on to work on a Star Wars film, you sign a huge NDA which prevents you from talking about the movie in almost any way possible (for example, see us try to get screenwriter Gary Whitta to talk about Star Wars: Rogue One here). But Star Wars: Episode VIII writer/director Rian Johnson has bet a tiny bit more forthcoming in interviews and on social media (he recently revealed the film format for his upcoming installment on twitter).
Yesterday the Looper/Brick writer/director took to twitter to relay the story of a dream he had which was to inspire a sequence in the upcoming still untitled Star Wars: Episode 8. Of course its nothing serious, but as Rian says, it is “a true story.” Read about the Rian Johnson Star Wars dream after the jump.

The folks at How It Should Have Ended previously skewered The Avengers: Age of Ultron by poking fun at one of the trailers for the Marvel Studios sequel. But now that the full film has been out in theaters for over a month, and the team has had a chance to soak it in a few times, they’re taking aim at the whole enchilada.
While the gang usually takes a look at the ending of any given film and plays around with it, this time their imagined ending for The Avengers: Age of Ultron would have actually seen the movie ending in the first act.
Find out how The Avengers: Age of Ultron should have ended below!
UPDATE: They’ve now added Part Two to the series. Read More »
Now that Jurassic World holds the record for the biggest box office debut of all-time (though it could end up getting trampled by Star Wars: The Force Awakens in December), there’s no doubt that Chris Pratt is one of the biggest movie stars in the world now. However, it’s important to remember that movie stars are just like the rest of us, and Pratt is no exception.
If you need proof that Chris Pratt isn’t just some action adventure hero created in a lab, you can go watch the first few seasons of Parks & Recreation on Netflix. Or if you don’t have that kind of time, you can watch this prank video where Pratt gets the sh*t scared out of him by a dinosaur surprise. Watch these guys prank Chris Pratt after the jump!

It’s June 12th, and that means Jurassic World is officially in theaters everywhere for audiences to feast their eyes on. The reviews are all over the place for this one with our own Peter Sciretta mostly enjoying the sequel and Germain Lussier finding some pretty serious flaws in it. Still, the film is sitting pretty firmly on a 70% rating at Rotten Tomatoes, which isn’t bad at all. You’ll just have to see the flick for yourself to see how you feel about it.
However, the folks at The Onion have just delivered their review, and they have revealed a massive problem with the sequel. For a movie focused so much on dinosaurs, it’s maddening that you can’t understand what the dinosaurs are saying. Thankfully though, this review also provides the necessary subtitles to make the movie much better. Watch The Onion Jurassic World review after the jump! Read More »

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.
