After finding success with low-key, naturalistic indies like Drinking Buddies and Happy Christmas, Joe Swanberg is back with what appears to be his biggest film yet. But because he’s Joe Swanberg, it’s still a pretty low-key, naturalistic indie. Digging for Fire stars Jake Johnson and Rosemarie DeWitt as an L.A. couple still getting used to parenthood.
While housesitting for a friend one weekend, the husband digs up a bone and a gun, sending him on a quest for answers. Meanwhile, the wife sets off on her own adventure involving a handsome stranger played by Orlando Bloom. Watch the Digging for Fire trailer after the jump. Read More »

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 »
Jurassic World is finally hitting theaters today, and as promised, here is my final interview with director Colin Trevorrow about the movie. As many of you know, I have talked to Colin two other times during the production of the film, once about the information leaks and fan backlash to some of those details and another time in an extensive interview when I visited the set of the film. My latest interview with Colin was conducted at the junket on the Universal back lot last week after having seen the movie.
In the interview, Colin talks about the Flight of the Navigator remake, how the voice cameos in the movie came about, the ideas of commercialization and sequels in the movie, how Steven Spielberg helped change the edit of the movie, the fan reaction to the trailers and the struggle to preserve surprises, how he met his writing partner Derek Connolly while working at Saturday Night Live, featherless dinosaurs in an age when science thinks different, and would he be interested in directing a Star Wars movie.
After the jump, you can read the whole interview (a couple of excerpts have run earlier in the week) which is virtually spoiler free (I have removed one question and answer which I will run next week after everyone has seen the film).

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.

Anyone who complained the first few Jurassic World trailers didn’t show enough will be pleasantly surprised by the latest one. The new trailer reveals several new action sequences as well the official full-screen reveal of the Indominus Rex, called the D-Rex. There are also many new shots of the Pteranodons, Velociraptors and a ton of homages to the original movie. Plus, one of the money shots seen in earlier trailers has been flipped on its head here in this final version.
Below, let’s do a Jurassic World trailer breakdown with over 70 screenshots. Read More »

In Let’s Be Cops, two friends discover a new (and highly illegal) way to get attention from the opposite sex. Two friends, one a douche and the other kind of a dork, dress up as cops for a costume party. They find, however, that people think they’re actually cops. And the reaction is pretty positive — especially from women who like a guy in uniform. And then things get messy. This new Let’s Be Cops red-band trailer shows how a couple real cops mistake the guys for officers, and the two dudes end up trying to solve an actual crime.
Luke Greenfield directed Damon Wayans Jr. and Jake Johnson in the lead roles, while Rob Riggle, Nina Dobrev, James D’Arcy and Andy Garcia round out the cast. Watch the new trailer below. Read More »

Hollywood is littered with films about cops who refuse to play by the book, and are threatened with losing their badges as a result. But cops who never got the book in the first place, because they never actually had badges to begin with? That’s different.
In the new trailer for Let’s Be Cops, New Girl roommates Jake Johnson and Damon Wayans Jr. play a pair of BFFs who dress as police officers for a costume party. When their fake outfits get them mistaken for real cops, they quickly discover that they enjoy the respect and excitement that comes with their (phony) new jobs. Watch the video after the jump.

The casting reports for Jurassic World have been full of rumor as much as fact, as reports for a film like this tend to be. But the list of actors who were initially connected to the movie has slowly been checked off with confirmations, one by one. Jake Johnson (New Girl, Drinking Buddies) is the latest actor to be confirmed for the Colin Trevorrow film, which will begin shooting very soon, after a screenwriting delay.
