Jurassic World, a third sequel to the 22-year old modern classic Jurassic Park, opened in theaters this past weekend. We’ve had plenty of coverage on the blockbuster sequel, including reviews from both Peter Sciretta (who loved the movie) and Germain Lussier (who was fairly disparaging), and a new interview with director Colin Trevorrow.
Fans now seeing Jurassic World are undoubtedly noticing all the direct references to Jurassic Park, as well as easter eggs placed for discovery by longtime fans. Most of these are pretty obvious, while others may only be noticed by those who have seen the original film countless times. So we’ve listed all the Jurassic World easter eggs and references that can be spotted in the film.
Check out our list of Jurassic World easter eggs after the jump, but beware of major spoilers for the movie! Read More »

While I’m undoubtedly anticipating the release of Jurassic World next week, I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t cautiously optimistic. From what we’ve seen in the footage so far, there’s a lot of dinosaur spectacle and action, which is the easiest way to market the film to a culture that has always been obsessed with dinosaurs. However, something just hasn’t felt right.
But a new international Jurassic World trailer has just landed online, and it’s the best one yet. With the exception of a faint echo of Bryce Dallas Howard yelling “Run!” and one quick line at the end, there’s absolutely no dialogue. It’s ominous and haunting, even if it does still show a little too much of the Indominus Rex wreaking havoc on the park.

For some reason, despite the disaster that occurred at a test run of Jurassic Park, the folks at InGen Technologies thought it was still a good idea to follow up on John Hammond’s dream and build Jurassic World. In the new film, the theme park has been operation for a while, and it seems like they’ve worked out all the bugs in the system. But of course, they create a genetically modified hybrid called the Indominus Rex, and that’s bad news.
We’ll see how that turns out next month, but in the meantime, check out this Jurassic World InGen viral video that dives into how the company’s genetic technology and dinosaur breeding has evolved over the past couple decades. There’s also a new TV spot that uses some familiar voiceover from the late Richard Attenborough as John Hammond. Watch the videos below! Read More »

Focus is only a few days away from opening, but that’s still enough time to squeeze in one last trailer. Will Smith and Margot Robbie play two con artists with a romantic history — which proves quite inconvenient when she shows up just as he’s trying to pull off his biggest con yet. Flirty smiles, longing looks, and conflicted emotions ensue. Watch the latest Focus trailer after the jump.

A ton of new Jurassic World news just dropped thanks to a viral site. The site is technically for a company called Masrani Global, which, in the film, is the construction company which helped to build and create Jurassic World. The site has a ton of images, some of which feature actors Irrfan Khan and B.D. Wong, as well as some history of the island and park which opened (according to the site) in June 2005.
Below, see the new Jurassic World images from the viral site and read more about the film. Read More »

Speculation on which Jurassic Park characters might reprise their roles for Jurassic World has been swirling pretty much since the moment Jurassic World was announced. So far, though, none of the actors have confirmed their return.
But now Colin Trevorrow is doing it for them. Or for one specific person, to be more precise. Hit the jump to find out which original Jurassic Park character will make it back for the sequel — and why you shouldn’t expect to see the others return with them.

If you liked what you saw when NBC posted the first seven minutes of the first episode of Awake earlier this week, you can now watch the other thirty-six. The network has released the entire pilot online for free, weeks in advance of its March premiere date.
Created by Kyle Killen (of the critically adored but amazingly short-lived Lone Star), the drama stars Jason Isaacs (Lucius Malfoy from the Harry Potter series) as a police detective who survives a devastating car accident to find that his life has been split into two realities. In one, his wife (Laura Allen, Terriers) survived the crash while his son (Dylan Minnette, Lost) perished; in the other, the reverse is true. Wilmer Valderrama, Steve Harris, Cherry Jones, B.D. Wong, and Michaela McManus also star. Watch the full-length episode after the jump.

NBC dropped an extended preview of its upcoming drama Awake last week, but today we have an even better look at the new show in the form of the first seven minutes of the episode. Jason Isaacs stars as Detective Michael Britten, who survives a car crash to find his life split into two realities: one in which his wife (Laura Allen, Terriers) lived through the accident, and another in which his son (Dylan Minnette, Lost) did. It’s a setup that requires a bit of explaining, but the premiere seems to get it out of the way fairly quickly. Watch the clip after the jump.

So, Jeremy Renner has finally given up one of the roughly five million roles he’s been linked to since he became Hollywood’s hottest rising star. The Playlist reports that Sam Rockwell is currently in negotiations to replace Renner as the lead in Better Living Through Chemistry, an indie drama by Geoff Moore and David Posamentier. Rockwell would be playing an unhappily married pharmacist who enters an affair with a trophy wife customer (Jennifer Garner). As their prescription drug-fueled romance escalates, things spin out of control and the two begin plotting to kill her husband.
Much as I like Renner, I’m equally happy to see the talented Rockwell in the part. Moore and Posamentier are building up quite the cast — in addition to Rockwell and Garner, the film is also set to star Dame Judi Dench and Michelle Monaghan.
After the jump, Justin Timberlake picks up a new gig, and Wizards of Waverly Place actor Gregg Sulkin joins fellow tween faves Booboo Stewart and Harry Shum, Jr. in Quentin Lee’s new film.
