J.J. Abrams has cracked open his patented mystery box. But just a little bit. The director made an appearance at CinemaCon is Las Vegas to present footage from Bad Robot’s Overlord, which is being touted as the company’s first R-rated film. He also threw water on a popular story spreading all over the internet, insisting that the horror/sci-fi film is not a secret Cloverfield sequel.

That, he says, is also on the way.

Next month will bring Solo: A Star Wars Story to the big screen, and we’ll see how Star Wars fans react when the film gives a beloved character a full origin story without the actor who originally played him. Disney and Lucasfilm seem confident that Han Solo will bring audiences into theaters, and it sounds like they think there’s franchise potential here.

Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom Characters

Since the Jurassic Park franchise has seen plenty of characters get chomped in the teeth and jaws of various dinosaurs over the last 25 years, there’s always room for fresh meat. And with a dangerous, genetically designed dinosaur roaming around called the Indoraptor, of course Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom will have a fair share of characters ripe for the eating.

During a very exclusive set visit in Hawaii during production of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, we talked to producers Frank Marshall and Pat Crowley about the new characters we’ll be meeting in the sequel. Some are new characters with specific areas of expertise needed to help rescue the dinosaurs from Isla Nublar. Others are characters who have a more concerning agenda when it comes to the creatures John Hammond first brought back from extinction all those years ago. Read More »

Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom Animatronic Dinosaurs

As Jurassic Park has become a modern classic over the years, one of the constant compliments paid to the film is how the special effects used to bring the dinosaurs to life have aged surprisingly well. There are digital effects and animatronics that look more realistic than any of the digital dinosaurs we’ve seen in any of the Jurassic Park sequels. But it sounds like the dinosaurs of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom might give them a run for their money, at least when it comes to the practical effects in the film.

While /Film was visiting the set of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom last year, we sat down for an extensive conversation with longtime Jurassic Park franchise producer Frank Marshall (who has also been behind the likes of the Indiana Jones and The Bourne Identity franchises) and Jurassic World producer Pat Crowley. During our chat with the producers, we found out Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom will have more animatronic dinosaurs than any sequel in the franchise, and they’re far more sophisticated too.
