heels in Jurassic World

Bryce Dallas Howard is letting her hair down (so to speak) and putting her heels away for Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom. Howard’s character Claire was at the center of much hoopla when Colin Trevorrow’s Jurassic World hit theaters in 2015 — with many incredulous at the prospect of a woman running away from giant prehistoric reptiles while wearing stiletto heels in the jungle.

It’s an issue that’s been tested and Mythbusted, as well as the subject of a thousand think pieces about sexism in the work force. But you don’t have to worry about it becoming another hot topic in its sequel — director J.A. Bayona promises: no heels.

Jurassic World 3

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom is one of several blockbuster sequels that will arrive in the summer of 2018, and it also appears to be the one which feels the most unnecessary. The first trailer for the sequel arrived earlier this month, and the reaction was less than stellar. Much like Jurassic World walked the same path as Jurassic Park, but on a larger scale, it appeared Fallen Kingdom was going to venture into the same territory as The Lost World. But that’s not the case, according to writer and producer Colin Trevorrow.

After directing Jurassic World, Colin Trevorrow is letting The Impossible helmer J.A. Bayona get behind the camera. But Trevorrow is still responsible for the script along with frequent collaborator Derek Connolly, so he has plenty of insight into what fans can expect from Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, and he says that this isn’t just a retread of The Lost World. Furthermore, it will also set up what’s to come in Jurassic World 3. Read More »

Rance Howard Dead

Today Ron Howard is an accomplished director who first got his start in show business as a child actor on classic television shows like The Andy Griffith Show. But we never would have seen the Happy Days star turn into the Oscar-winning director of A Beautiful Mind if it wasn’t for the career of his father, Rance Howard. Sadly, the veteran actor who appeared in several of his son’s films has passed away at 89. We remember the life and career of Rance Howard below. Read More »

Bryce Dallas Howard directorial debut

Bryce Dallas Howard has directed several short films, plays, and an M-83 music video throughout her career. She’s yet to direct a feature film, though. The star of Pete’s Dragon and Jurassic World spent years working on a Big Chill-esque project called The Originals, which she wrote in 2009 with her writing partner/brother-in-law Dane Charbonneau, but it’s yet to come to fruition. Howard has now lined up another possible feature directorial debut, Sorta Like a Rock Star, based on Matthew Quick‘s (“Silver Linings Playbook”) novel of the same name.

Daisy Ridley as Rey in Star Wars: The Force Awakens

Daisy Ridley may have been new to movie stardom circa Star Wars: The Force Awakens, but by now she’s an old pro at dodging questions. Watch as shrugs that she doesn’t think Rey’s parentage is really “so important,” or coolly deflects further inquiries with “curiosity is a wonderful thing.” Unfortunately for her, though, fans and journalists aren’t the only ones she has to watch out for.

For the past several weeks, Josh Gad — Ridley’s co-star in the Murder on the Orient Express remake — has been trying his damnedest to get some Star Wars: The Last Jedi answers from her, even enlisting the help of Judi Dench. So far, Ridley’s resisted. But can she continue to stand firm against all of Gad’s famous friends? Find out below.  Read More »

PETE'S DRAGON

David Lowery‘s Pete’s Dragon is a simple, beautiful and warm tale of friendship. It’s a refreshingly sparse story that hardly resembles the original Disney film. Lowery and co-writer Toby Halbrooks lifted very little from the ’77 musical; they made a movie that stands on its own and doesn’t rely at all on nostalgia.

The film was well received when it was in theaters, but now that it’s on home video, more viewers will likely embrace Elliot and Pete’s heartfelt and tender adventure. With Pete’s Dragon now on Blu-ray, we recently had the chance to speak with Lowery again, and he reflected on some of the toughest and most enjoyable days during the shoot, not reading the reviews, the lessons he learned, and the experience of working with Robert Redford again.

Jurassic World 2 Justice Smith (The Get Down)

Jurassic World 2 has been out looking for potential dino chow, and now it’s honed in on Justice Smith. The young star of Netflix’s The Get Down has just been cast in the J.A. Bayona-directed sequel, joining franchise newcomers Rafe Spall and Toby Jones and returning stars Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard.

Oh, and speaking of Howard, she’s got some good news coming her way, too. After her Claire spent most of Jurassic World sprinting around the jungle in stiletto heels, writer and producer Colin Trevorrow has promised she’ll get much more comfortable footwear in the next film.  Read More »

gold release date

Harvey Weinstein‘s name is synonymous with the Academy Awards. The producer has had films famously dominate the awards ceremony before. This year he’s pushing Lion and The Founder as serious contenders, and hopefully Sing Street will get more attention come awards season. Another Oscar hopeful for Weinstein’s is Stephen Gaghan‘s new film Gold, which based on the trailers, also has a chance of finding an audience when it goes wide at the end of January.

Below, learn the new Gold release date.
