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.

It goes without saying that James Cameron has a lot more story to tell in the universe first seen in Avatar. As it stands now, three sequel films are in development, and if all goes according to plan they will be released each year starting in 2017. However, according to one of Cameron’s frequent collaborators, there may be more.
James Horner, the Oscar-winning composer of Titanic who also did Avatar and Aliens, said that Cameron currently has a script for a fourth sequel – let’s call it Avatar 5 – that he’s trying to condense back into the previously planned three sequels. Read more about the Avatar sequels below. Read More »

We’ve been featuring the Poster Posse on the site for a while now. As you know, the collective group of artists create an online art show for highly anticipated upcoming movies. Past examples include Godzilla, Interstellar, Guardians of the Galaxy, X-Men: Days of Future Past, Pacific Rim and Big Hero 6. Poster Posse has announced their next digital art show is for George Miller‘s Mad Max: Fury Road, which I think we’re all very very excited for, right? Check out the first batch of Mad Max Fury Road art posters after the jump.

This morning, Disney released a new poster for Tomorrowland. Russ grabbed it before I was finished with breakfast, but I noticed something hidden within the image that is noteworthy – hence this post.
Ever since it was announced that director Brad Bird and screenwriter/producer Damon Lindelof’s secret 1952 project was to be titled Tomorrowland, Disney fanatics have speculated about what role the Disneyland park and Walt Disney himself might play in the film. We know that Walt Disney’s creations at the 1964 World’s Fair play into the plot. (specifically the ‘It’s a Small World After All’ attraction, which was later relocated to Disneyland, where it remains today.) Lindelof has said that the movie will show the origins of Tomorrowland but would not show Disneyland itself — but that doesn’t mean we won’t see notable aspects of Disneyland in the movie itself.
And today’s Tomorrowland poster gives us a first look at that. Will we see Disneyland’s Space Mountain in Tomorrowland?

The Lego Movie will be followed by several big screen sequels and spin-offs. The direct sequel just landed a director and will be out in 2018. A Ninjago spin-off will come out in 2016 and the Lego Batman spin-off will be out in 2017. But we now know that’s not all. We’re going to get a sort-of sequel later this year. Just not on the big screen.
LEGO has announced later this year, their LEGOLAND theme parks and Discover Centers will debut a brand new 4D short film based on The Lego Movie, featuring Emmet and Wyldstyle. Read more about the new LEGOLAND Lego Movie ride below. Read More »

Katniss is going big for her final blowout. Lionsgate has announced that The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 2 will be released this fall in IMAX and IMAX 3D, as well as plain old normal-sized-screen 2D.
That makes The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 2 the first Hunger Games film to open in 3D in the U.S. (Mockingjay, Part 1 played in 3D in China.) The news also brings the franchise back to the IMAX format. The Hunger Games and The Hunger Games: Catching Fire both hit the jumbo screens, but IMAX opted to show Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar over The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 1 last year.
