Briefly: While a number of names have been listed over the past few months as potential stars of Colin Trevorrow’s Jurassic World, we haven’t assumed that any will be locked in once the movie really gets going. The production delay and reported script changes threw things for a loop.

But Bryce Dallas Howard was tipped as one possible lead not long ago, and Deadline says she’s still in talks. Additionally, the site says that Jake Johnson (Drinking Buddies, New Girl) is a possible choice for another role. And finally, the young Ty Simpkins, who got his start on the big screen in Steven Spielberg’s War of the Worlds and may be best recognized as the poster child for Insidious (or as the precious kid in Iron Man 3), is now reported to be set for a lead role in the film, too. At this point we don’t have details for any of their roles, but that certainly looks like the sort of family unit (formal, or improvised) that would be right at home in a Jurassic Park movie.

Jurassic World is due out June 12, 2015Steven Spielberg and Frank Marshall are producing.

It’s been a few months since we’ve heard anything about The Originals, Bryce Dallas Howard‘s planned debut as a feature director, but in the meantime the actress/filmmaker has been keeping busy with another short film. Titled when you find me, the 30-minute movie originated as part of Canon U.S.A.’s “Long Live Imagination” campaign and was inspired by eight photos selected by Howard’s father/producer Ron Howard from a contest that pulled in nearly 100,000 submissions. Watch the full film after the jump.

‘The Help’ International Trailer

The Help isn’t the platonic ideal of a summer movie — actually, it’s kind of the opposite. But thanks in a large part to the cast, it’s one of the upcoming films I’m most curious about. Tate Taylor‘s adaptation of Kathryn Stockett‘s novel follows a young writer named Skeeter (Emma Stone) who causes an uproar in 1960s Jackson, Mississippi when she publishes a book from the point of view of “the help.” Viola Davis, Octavia Spencer, Bryce Dallas Howard, Allison JanneyJessica Chastain and Sissy Spacek also star. Watch the new international trailer after the jump.

Anyone with reservations about whether or not they’ll enjoy a cancer comedy can check those feelings right now. Summit has just released the first trailer for the fantastic new film 50/50, the true story of a young man (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) who is diagnosed with cancer at 27 and given a 50/50 chance of survival. The studio is obviously aware that “cancer” and “comedy” generally don’t mix so they’ve been screening the film early and I’m happy to say that 50/50 (formerly titled I’m With Cancer) is hilarious and poignant. Director Jonathan Levine (The Wackness) is able to balance the serious with the funny in an incredibly accessible and entertaining way. It’s one of the best films I’ve seen so far this year.

Written by Will Reiser, the person the movie is about, 50/50 also stars Seth Rogen, Anna Kendrick, Anjelica Huston and Bryce Dallas Howard. It’s scheduled for release September 30. Check out the trailer after the jump. Read More »
