jurassic world 3 info

Last week, I had the opportunity to talk to Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom director J.A. Bayona about the making of his latest film. We talk about why he decided to direct Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom after turning down the first film, his very collaborative relationship with co-writer/producer Colin Trevorrow, the creation of one of my favorite action sequences from the film, and the decision to make this a story about saving the dinosaurs.

You can read the full interview below. There are no real spoilers in the discussion (the Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom one shot action sequence we talk about is in the trailers), so feel free to dive in.

Optimus Prime Movie

Since plans for another sequel in the primary Transformers franchise appear to be more dead than Cybertron, it sounds like Paramount Pictures and producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura are rethinking how they might keep Transformers alive on the big screen.

This winter will bring us Bumblebee (watch the teaser trailer here), a spin-off focusing on a solo adventure for the yellow Autobot as he meets a teenage girl in the 1980s, not unlike how he became acquainted with Sam Witwicky (Shia LaBeouf) in the first live-action Transformers movie from 2007.
