As of now, Jurassic World is the biggest movie of the year. That might change this winter once Star Wars: The Force Awakens hits theaters, but for now Universal Pictures is having a huge year at the box office, so we’ll let the studio bask in that glory for awhile.
This fall, fans will be able to bring home the Indominus Rex when the movie hits Blu-Ray and DVD on October 20. (Or you can get it on Digital HD a bit earlier on October 1st.) Universal is teasing all the special features that will be available on the home video release, showing the making of Jurassic World. There’s a collection of eight short featurettes you can watch below! Read More »

This month has been chock full of new details about Paul Feig‘s reboot of Ghostbusters. We’ve seen the new proton packs (with added specs to help cosplayers), the new Ecto-1, and a shot of Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones all suited up and ready to bust ghosts, not to mention learning about a cameo from Dan Aykroyd and the character names of the new female paranormal exterminators.
But today we have an update regarding the Ghostbusters spin-off that was first reported back in March with ties to Captain America: the Winter Soldier directors Anthony & Joe Russo. At the time Chris Pratt and Channing Tatum were said to be eyed as stars of the film, but Pratt denied the rumors and Tatum’s producing partner Reid Carolin said it wasn’t happening anymore.
However, if Iron Man 3 writer Drew Pearce is to be believed, then the Ghostbusters spin-off may still happen. Find out more below! Read More »

This past weekend, Jurassic World crossed yet another massive blockbuster milestone by hitting $600 million domestic, putting it at #4 on the all-time domestic box office list, with an eye towards passing up The Avengers at #3 before it leaves theaters.
But if you’ve seen Jurassic World enough in theaters, maybe you’d like to bring a piece of the movie home with you. No, sadly you can’t have dinosaurs as pets yet (hasn’t the movie shown you that’s a bad idea anyway?), but you can get your hands on Chris Pratt’s motorcycle that takes him cruising alongside his raptor friends, because it’ll be up for auction on eBay this week.

With news surfacing that The LEGO Movie and 21 Jump Street directors Phil Lord & Chris Miller will be at the helm of a new Star Wars Anthology film focusing on a young Han Solo, everyone is wondering just who will play the charismatic smuggler.
Harrison Ford made the role iconic in the original Star Wars trilogy, and he’ll be reprising the role in The Force Awakens. But Ford can’t play a young version of the character without extensive visual effects, so some younger actor is going to have to get in the cockpit of the Millennium Falcon. The question is who can pull it off?
We’ve rounded up some possibilities, some likely, some not, and some more preferable than others. Check out our list of 20 Actors Who Should Play Han Solo after the jump! Read More »

As a fan of Saturday Night Live, I’ve always wanted to see the sketches that end up getting cut for time. Since SNL is a live show, some sketches end up getting cut if the show runs long. But those cut sketches are usually recorded in the two-hour dress rehearsal that happens before the show airs live at 11:30 Eastern time.
Since SNL has found new life online with sketches that go viral with every new episode, there’s finally a place for cut sketches to see the light of day. And we’re lucky enough today that one such sketch has surface online months after the original episode aired. In the sketch, Chris Pratt plays Crank and The Transporter Jason Statham, selling a fine product called Jason Steakums, and they sound delicious. Watch Chris Pratt as Jason Statham after the jump!

In addition to having the biggest box office opening of all-time last weekend, Jurassic World also sparked a fun new meme. Audiences have already seen Chris Pratt as raptor trainer Owen Grady, having a special bond with his dinosaur pals, and zookeepers decided to turn one particular moment from Grady’s raptor whispering into a sensational meme.
Well, now Pratt has topped them all by appearing in a photo where he’s training even more cunning creatures of this world. And they’re not going to let him get away so easily. See Chris Pratt training raptors at a children’s hospital after the jump! Read More »
It’s been just one week since Jurassic World hit theaters, and everyone still can’t stop talking about the triumphant return of dinosaurs to the big screen. Whether you liked the movie or not, you can’t deny that it’s quite the box office milestone. There’s a chance it could take the top spot at the box office again this weekend unless the family-drawing power of Pixar has anything to say about it.
So if you’re anxious for some more talk about Jurassic World, why not listen to a one-hour chat with director Colin Trevorrow and star Chris Pratt? The two discuss the huge expectations that come with making a Jurassic Park sequel, some similarities to Back to the Future Part II (which I didn’t think about until now) and much more.

The week before Jurassic World hit theaters, I was able to get mega-producer Frank Marshall on the phone to talk not only about the new Jurassic Park sequel/reboot, but about a variety of other topics as well.
During the conversation we discussed the idea of weaponized dinosaurs, how he came to produce this movie (which has something to do with Star Wars), the cynical online fanboy reaction throughout the development, the Amblin feel of the movie, how the project evolved from earlier drafts, why the previous screenwriters Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver are still credited on the film after Colin Trevorrow and Derek Connelly did a page one rewrite, the battle of practical vs. cg effects, planning for further sequels, Spielberg’s idea for trained raptors, how Jimmy Buffet ended up in the movie, if Universal Studios will be making a Jurassic World ride for their parks.
I ask him about some of the projects he has on his plate, which include new Bourne movies, a big-screen adaptation of Assassin’s Creed, and Indiana Jones 5. I also ask about the 30th anniversary of Back to the Future, a film for which Marshall acted as producer and second unit director. (I got some details on that latter gig.) All this and more is in my Frank Marshall interview, which you can read after the jump.
