LEGO Dimensions Discontinued

It goes without saying that /Film is not a video game site. But whenever there’s news regarding video games with ties to our favorite movies and TV shows, we think it’s worth reporting. That’s why we’re here with a disappointing update from The LEGO Group regarding their building block multiverse in the video game LEGO Dimensions.

After creating a video game that combined the worlds of Ghostbusters, Gremlins, Doctor Who, Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, Jurassic World, E.T. The Extra Terrestrial, The Simpsons, Back to the Future, Knight Rider and many more, The LEGO Group, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and TT Games have decided not to create anymore new expansion packs for the video game. Find out more below. Read More »

Jurassic World - Indominus Rex Concept Art

When Jurassic World hit theaters in the summer of 2015, it had to at least try to match the screen presence of the majestic but deadly tyrannosaurus rex from the original Jurassic Park. That’s easier said than done, and despite having a meta sort of storyline about the fully functional Jurassic World creating a genetic hybrid beast to keep the park’s attendees interested, the so-called Indominus Rex wasn’t all that impressive. But perhaps it could have been.

Concept artist Ian Joyner recently shared a piece of concept art he created for Jurassic World, showing off an alternate design for the Indominus Rex. It’s quite the departure from the final creature we saw in the half-reboot, half-sequel, but it looks significantly cooler, in our opinion. Read More »

Jurassic World Evolution Video Game

Ever since Jurassic Park arrived in 1993, people have wanted to see a theme park with real dinosaurs, despite the fact that it would likely go catastrophically wrong at some point. There’s just something about the possibility of seeing dinosaurs in real life that makes people throw caution to the wind.

Now you’ll get a chance to build your own Jurassic Park without endangering the lives of anyone except little digital people inside your computer. A video game called Jurassic World Evolution was just announced at the Gamescom exhibition, and it appears to be a world building game, not unlike Roller Coaster Tycoon or Sim City, where you build your own Jurassic Park and have to keep the dinosaurs contained and the patrons happy. You can get a sneak peek at the game with a trailer below. Read More »

ian malcolm in jurassic world 2

This weekend has not been kind to Colin Trevorrow, whose passion project The Book of Henry was lambasted by critics and put the goodwill surrounding him as the choice to direct Star Wars: Episode 9 at risk.

But people still kinda liked Jurassic World, so the sequel that he co-wrote and produced will be anticipated nonetheless. A major part of that anticipation can be credited to the return of Jeff Goldblum as chaos theory mathematician Dr. Ian Malcolm, and Trevorrow recently discussed what fans can expect in that department.

Find out more about Jeff Goldblum in Jurassic World 2 below.

jeff goldblum thor ragnarok

The best thing about reading a Jeff Goldblum interview is that it’s so explicitly Goldblum that you can practically hear him talking and guffawing in your ear.

More so than the tidbits he teases about Thor: Ragnarok his first venture into superhero territory or the fact that he’s returning to the dinosaur franchise that he helped make famous as Dr. Ian Malcolm, are the hilarious Goldblum-esque quirks throughout this new interview. He calls the Jurassic Park series “dino-entertainment!” He rates directors on a scale of himself! It’s fortuitous that Ragnarok director Taika Waititi told Goldblum to be as Goldblum as possible in his portrayal of the Grandmaster. I hope he never changes.

Just like how you need to break a few eggs to make an omelet, Colin Trevorrow knows you need to smuggle out a few dinosaur eggs to make a sequel.

In a cryptic new photo from Jurassic World 2, Trevorrow — who yields the director’s chair this time around to A Monster CallsJ. A. Bayona — teases a picture of dinosaur eggs in an incubator waiting to hatch, in an eerie parallel to the classic scene in the lab from the original Jurassic Park.
