Colin Trevorrow‘s Jurassic Park 4, originally scheduled for release Summer 2014, is currently locked in a holding pattern. The studio and director agreed taking more time to craft the film was the best way to ensure it will be the sequel we all want. But what does that mean exactly?

Both J.J. Abrams and Alfonso Cuarón are using the big screen this year to explore the expansive blackness of outer space — Abrams with last week’s Star Trek Into Darkness, Cuarón with this fall’s Gravity.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
The second trailer for Edgar Wright‘s The World’s End will hit the Web on Wednesday. In anticipation of that event, two new posters have been released. One is another UK banner and the second is our first US one-sheet. Each are similar in that they show Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Paddy Considine, Martin Freeman and Eddie Marsan mugging for the camera, but now Rosamund Pike‘s character has joined the group. And Pegg is raising a pint, tying in the drinking element, leading to the new tag line ”Barmageddon Begins.”

For now, check out the two new posters and read a Q&A Wright did where he reveals a bunch of tidbits about the film. Read More »
