Jurassic World

History repeats itself this summer with Jurassic World. Both in the sense that we’re getting a new Jurassic Park sequel 22 years after the original opened, and in the sense that once again the story centers around a bunch of humans arrogant enough to believe that opening a park full of big, vicious predators is a great idea.

Not to get too spoiler-y about it, but we all know this is going to go terribly wrong for them. Otherwise, there’d be no movie. A new Jurassic World poster teases the very uneven battle to come, ahead of a new trailer due out next week. See the new Jurassic World poster after the jump.

Update: Another new Jurassic World poster has been revealed featuring the mighty Mosasaurus. Check it out after the jump. Read More »

Lars von Trier

Lars von Trier has yet to announce his big-screen follow-up to his five-hour, two-part sex epic Nymphomaniac. In the meantime, though, he’s got something else cooking. As we reported last year, he’s working on a new TV series called The House That Jack Built.

At the time, we knew only that it was supposed to be “without precedent,” whatever that meant. Now some more concrete details have emerged on the story and structure. Get the latest on the Lars von Trier TV show after the jump.  Read More »

Force Awakens facts

The new teaser trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens is only part of the treasure trove of new information we have on the film. The Star Wars Celebration event has a big Force Awakens costume and concept art gallery, with some really tasty details. Among them are vague teasers about the new factions in the film. The six existing Star Wars movies (and many related stories) have charted the fall of the Galactic Republic, the rise of the Empire that followed, and the Rebellion that fought the Empire to a standstill in Return of the Jedi.

But those two factions have evolved into The First Order and The Resistance. In addition to that info, we have some other character details thanks to official art and costumes, and a few other tidbits that dropped during Celebration panels. We’ll hand over all these Force Awakens facts below.

Warner Bros. has only released one trailer so far for Pan, Joe Wright‘s colorful reimagining of J.M. Barrie‘s classic Peter Pan. But with only three months to go until the film’s debut, look for the marketing team to start picking up the pace. Perhaps with an assist from Hugh Jackman now and then.

The star has shared a new Pan sneak peek in which he (as villainous pirate Blackbeard) welcomes you to Neverland. Watch the Pan teaser after the jump.

The Joker

Celebrity makeovers are typically the terrain of gossip rags, not film blogs like ours. But when the celebrity in question is future Suicide Squad star Jared Leto, and the makeover brings him a lot closer to the Joker’s signature look, well, that’s a different question.

Leto has got superhero movie lovers buzzing thanks to a selfie of himself sporting lime green hair and cherry red lips. See Leto’s Suicide Squad Joker tease after the jump.  Read More »

Cool Posts From Around the Web:

Russell Brand in Paradise

Despite the title, Nicolas Cage won’t be left all alone in Army of One. In fact, he’s just picked up a bunch of very funny co-stars. Russell Brand, Denis O’Hare, Ken Marino, Paul Scheer, and Rainn Wilson have all signed on for the comedy, about an American handyman who sets out to capture Osama bin Laden. What makes the premise even crazier is that it’s based on a true story.

Wendi McLendon-Covey also stars. Larry Charles (Borat) is directing. Details on the new Army of One casting after the jump.  Read More »

BB-8 effects

The most impressive thing at The Force Awakens panel at Star Wars Celebration today was clearly the film’s new teaser trailer. (Watch it here; see a photo breakdown here.) But the next best thing was a demo I don’t think anyone saw coming. The first Force Awakens teaser featured a shot of the rolling droid BB-8, which most everyone assumed to be a CG creation. Surprise! The BB-8 effects are actually practical, as we learned today when the droid rolled onto the Celebration stage. (Mark Hamill had said as much in December, but even then there was the assumption that some of the droid was CG.)

Making things better, that appearance on stage gave us a chance hear a lot more from the droid, and get a sense of the character’s personality. That’s something that both teasers have only hinted at. Check out the BB-8 effects below. Read More »

Avengers Infinity War Logo

While Marvel’s TV shows are definitely part of the same universe as Marvel’s movies, the characters overlap only occasionally. And when they do, it tends to be movie characters dropping by the show, not the other way around.

But it sounds like some of the MCU’s upcoming small-screen stars will get the chance to crash the big-screen party. According to a new rumor, Netflix’s Defenders team will show up in an upcoming Avengers movie. After the jump, read up on the Defenders Avengers rumor. Plus, get an update on the Agent Carter renewal odds.  Read More »
