I got an opportunity to visit Jurassic World last week and lived to tell you about it. After the jump you will find my virtually spoiler-free Jurassic World review, which gives you an idea of what to expect, what was good, and what was not, without spoiling anything that couldn’t otherwise be learned from the marketing.

Given how ubiquitous Charlie Brown and Snoopy still are, it’s a bit surprising to realize they haven’t been the subjects of their own full-length feature film in 35 years. But that changes this fall with The Peanuts Movie, which gives Charles M. Schulz‘s beloved creations a 3D CG upgrade.
On paper, that description sounds kind of alarming — does that mean we’re in for a cooler, sexier Charlie? As the new Peanuts Movie poster reveals, you needn’t fear. The gang’s all here, and they still look like their own delightful selves. Check out the Peanuts Movie poster after the jump.

Featuring one of the most impressive casts of the year, director Baltasar Kormákur is ready to take audiences to one of the most frightening and mythic places on the globe: Everest. The new film, which stars Jason Clarke, Josh Brolin, John Hawkes, Robin Wright, Michael Kelly, Sam Worthington, Keira Knightley, Emily Watson and Jake Gyllenhaal, opens September 18.
Based on true events, Everest tells the story two teams attempt to reach the summit of the mountain in one of the most violent snowstorms ever recorded. Kormákur shot the film in real conditions and IMAX 3D to give the viewer an experience almost as harrowing as the real people. Did he succeed? Check out the first Everest trailer below. Read More »
Violent shaking, swirling winds, billowing smoke, and that’s just inside the movie theater. Since the opening of the United States’ first 4DX theater in Los Angeles, CA last year, there really hasn’t been quite as perfect a marriage of experience and material as that theater and San Andreas. Where a film like Transformers: Age of Extinction certainly works in 4DX, San Andreas is about characters being in an environment that moves around. (That being an earthquake.) So, unlike other action movies that have used the technology, it seemed like, at least on the surface, San Andreas would be the perfect film for /Film to use as our triumphant return to 4DX.
So, was it worth it? Find out in our San Andreas 4DX video blog. Read More »

It feels like Duncan Jones‘ Warcraft has been in production since before the Horde or Alliance came into existance. The director finished filming about a year ago and ever since, has been very carefully showing hints and teases at big events like Comic-Con and BlizzCon. Most recently, the film’s release date was pushed back from Spring to Summer 2016 (the above logo is wrong), which disappointed fans but mostly meant the studio is confident in the film. Now we have an idea why.
The first official images from Warcraft have now been revealed showing off one of the film’s stars, the orc leader Orgrim Doomhammer. He’s played by Robert Kazinsky (Pacific Rim, True Blood) but beyond that performance he’s almost entirely the work of Industrial Light and Magic. Check out the Warcraft images below. Read More »
Pretty much everyone knows Minions is going to be a big hit. The wild, yellow characters are incredibly popular with kids and adults alike, so the fact they’ve got their own movie hitting theaters this summer is a slam dunk. At this point, it comes down to one thing: is the movie good? If it isn’t, the film will still be a success. But if it is good, it could be one of the biggest animated films of all time. The Minions are that well-liked.
A new 3-plus-minute trailer obviously can’t speak to the film’s quality, but it can speak to its scope (very big), its humor (silly, with an adult edge) and its voice cast (incredibly impressive). The film is set 42 years before the events of the first Despicable Me, which pretty much makes it a period piece, too. Minions opens July 10, watch the latest trailer below. Read More »

In July 2014, I had the pleasure of visiting the set of Jurassic World. After the jump you will find a roundup of over 50 things I learned on the Jurassic World set visit, ranging from cool bits of trivia (for instance: a neat suggestion Steven Spielberg made to vastly improve an idea Colin Trevorrow pitched) to interesting information about the theme park world of the film. This is probably one of the coolest sets I’ve ever visited. We will be featuring interviews from the set elsewhere on the site, so look out for those as well.
