jurassic world fallen kingdom trailer

Ready for another stroll in the park? Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom will continue the dino-mayhem that broke the bank with 2015’s Jurassic World, a continuation of Steven Spielberg’s Jurassic Park. The Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom trailer has just arrived to sink its teeth into you (metaphorically; don’t worry).

Taika Waititi Star Wars

Taika Waititi has gone from indie filmmaker to blockbuster super-director with the success of Thor: Ragnarok, which means it’s only a matter of time before he moves on to even bigger things. Like Star Wars, for example. Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy recently confirmed that she’d be thrilled to have Waititi direct a Star Wars film, and Waititi has expressed a vague interest in the past. So don’t be surprised if this becomes a done deal at some point.

justice league

Even with over a half billion dollars grossed at the international box office, there’s no denying it: Justice League isn’t pulling the numbers Warner Bros. needed it to pull. It’s certainly not doing Avengers-level business. At this rate, the film probably won’t even hit $300 million at the domestic box office, where it will be handily outgrossed by the third Thor movie. Something had to be done. Heads had to roll. And now, it sounds like Warner Bros. is picking up the axe.

A major shake-up is underway at the studio’s comic book production division, with producers being shuffled around in the wake of Justice League‘s disappointing box office. And there’s more to come.

Quentin Tarantino Star Trek R Rated

Earlier this week, news broke that Pulp Fiction filmmaker Quentin Tarantino would be joining the Star Trek franchise via an idea he pitched to J.J. Abrams. The news sounded almost too strange to be true, and that perhaps any moment we’d learn a mistake had been made. But now even more details about Tarantino’s Star Trek have arrived, including the revelation that the film will be R-Rated, per Tarantino’s stipulations. In addition to this news, The Revenant writer Mark L. Smith has emerged as the frontrunner to pen the script. Folks, this continues to seem very, very weird.

Justice League - Jason Momoa as Aquaman

Let’s face it: you could cut Aquaman out of Justice League entirely and the movie doesn’t change that much. However, the reluctant heir to the throne of Atlantis is getting his own solo movie from director James Wan and the first image from the film is all about showing off Jason Momoa‘s impossible superhero physique. If you’re standing near his personal trainer, give him a pat on the back, please. Thanks.

J.J. Abrams Star Wars

When Jurassic World director Colin Trevorrow left Star Wars: Episode IX, moviegoers were left wondering who would take his place. We received the answer pretty quickly and it was both surprising and kind of obvious: Star Wars: The Force Awakens director J.J. Abrams. Now, Abrams is revealing what drew him back to the Star Wars franchise, even though the filmmaker claims he had no intention of returning.

Read on to learn why J.J. Abrams returned to Star Wars.

star wars the last jedi tv spot spoilers

It’s getting down to the final week before Star Wars: The Last Jedi, which means spoilers abound.

You have to be more wary now than ever of accidentally getting spoiled for the newest Star Wars film, as Disney and Lucasfilm kick their marketing into high gear and inundate us with hundreds of new TV spots with flashes of new, potentially spoiler-y, footage. The newest TV spot is a huge example of this. It plays like any regular Star Wars: The Last Jedi TV spot, until the last 5 seconds, when we see a brief glimpse of footage that we’ve never seen before.

You’ve been warned: there is something in this spot that you may not want to see before you’re sitting in the theater. This is your spoiler alert.

Star Wars The Last Jedi 57

This past weekend, I had a chance to sit down with Star Wars: The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson to talk about the new Star Wars film, which no one outside of Lucasfilm has seen yet. Since the filmmakers can’t say much about the film, I decided to ask about the marketing.

In the last trailer and some recent TV spots, we’ve begun to see moments from the movie that seem like they might be spoilers, but many fans believe the scenes (like the moment between Kylo and Rey in the final trailer) might actually be deceptively edited to help protect spoilers. In the interview, Rian admitted that the marketing manipulates, but never misrepresents the final film.

While the full interview will be posted next week, I wanted to share some excerpts from the discussion, especially as we barrel into the final stages of The Last Jedi marketing.

captain phasma in star wars the last jedi

You’ll be forgiven for not remembering that Captain Phasma was left to a questionable fate at the end of Star Wars: The Force Awakens — it turns out Star Wars: the Last Jedi director Rian Johnson didn’t remember, either.

The stoic villain who terrorized her former insubordinate Finn (John Boyega), was left at the bottom of a trash compactor at the end of The Force Awakens, shortly before the super weapon  that housed that trash chute exploded. Phasma obviously escaped death, but a thoughtless line of dialogue from Johnson almost buried Gwendoline Christie‘s character back in the dumpster.

This week will bring the first trailer for Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, the sequel to the 2015 reboot/sequel in the Jurassic Park franchise. Though some would argue that Jurassic World was a tad underwhelming, much like Star Wars: The Force Awakens, it delivered the right amount of nostalgia mixed with fresh elements to make it feel new again. Plus, it had been awhile since we’d gotten a decent blockbuster with dinosaurs.

Anyway, with just a few days out from the release of the full trailer, Universal Pictures has released a Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom trailer teaser featuring out first look at one of the action sequences from the film, and it has one particular elemtn that we’ve never seen in a Jurassic Park movie before. You’ll see what I mean below. Read More »
