Today’s announcement of a second new Ghostbusters film, scripted by Drew Pearce, possibly directed by Anthony and Joe Russo, and with Channing Tatum anchoring a supposedly “guy-centric” cast, threw a lot of people for a loop. Sony doesn’t even have Paul Feig‘s new Ghostbusters film out yet, so wouldn’t this overshadow that upcoming movie?
But as it turns out, some details were exaggerated in that first report — reportedly, people at Sony say they don’t know where the “guy-centric” description came from — and other background stuff didn’t make it online at all. A new report says the second film would be part of a shared universe with Feig’s movie, with a third team-up film and a possible prequel all designed as part of the package. Read More »

The Indiana Jones rumors continue to swirl and it feels like everyone is in the know except the principals. A few weeks back, Chris Pratt was cornered at an airport and asked about the rumors of him playing the role. He seemed fairly clueless about it. Then late last week, a report said that Steven Spielberg would be interested in directing a new film, if all the pieces fit. That suggested very little has actually moved forward on the film.
Then, on the Oscars red carpet, Pratt was cornered about the project again. This time he was much more prepared for the question and said he hadn’t been contacted about the role, but was intrigued by it and not intimidated. Listen to the latest Chris Pratt Indiana Jones interview below. Read More »
So you’re Chris Pratt. You’ve just gotten back from a hunting trip, you land at the airport and you just want to get home to your family. Suddenly, TMZ is in your face at baggage claim. This is not an ideal situation, even for the super nice actor. Things get worse when a fan comes up to him with an Indiana Jones photo to sign.
As you may have heard, the latest rumor is Disney is currently exploring ways to reboot the Indiana Jones franchise and Pratt has been mentioned as a contender to don the fedora.
So when the TMZ cameraman sees this, he begins to ask Pratt the tough questions. Questions the actor was certainly not in the right mind set to ask. Which is why the interview below features both denials of the rumor and almost a confirmation too. I tend to believe all of this was just off the cuff but, it’s Chris Pratt and it’s Indiana Jones so we figured you might want to check it out. Read More »
It’s been a turbulent week for Sony but the studio is moving forward full-speed ahead on the long-awaited realization of Jon Spaihts‘ sci-fi script Passengers. Director Morten Tyldum (The Imitation Game, Headhunters) just came on to direct earlier this week, a couple months after Sony grabbed rights to the script following failed development efforts at other companies. And now Jennifer Lawrence is in early talks to play one of the two lead roles, which instantly turns Passengers into a top-tier project — assuming her schedule allows her to sign on.
Update: Just after we published this, another report revealed Chris Pratt as being in early talks for the second lead role, opposite Lawrence.

That sound you heard last year was Jurassic Park fans screaming about the oddities in the Jurassic World trailer. Specifically, the fact Chris Pratt‘s character apparently has control of a pack of Velociraptors, those unstoppable, evil dinosaur from the first three movies. The Super Bowl trailer for the Colin Trevorrow film showed even more of this relationship, with Pratt’s character dinosaur whispering the dominant creatures (seen above).
Well, a Reddit user has pointed out the idea behind this relationship isn’t exactly new at all. In fact, it was in Michael Crichton‘s original Jurassic Park book, conveyed by a character we know for a fact is returning for Jurassic World. Read the quotes that tease the Jurassic World raptor squad below. Read More »

Jurassic World got our attention with a new Super Bowl spot today, and the film looks significantly different now than it did a couple months ago.

Quite a few shots appear in both trailers, but more than half a dozen look at least a bit different. Some are massively changed. Check out side-by-side comparison of old and updated Jurassic World effects below. Read More »
