Germain’s Most Anticipated Films of 2015

Germain Anticipated 2015

If Hollywood plays its cards right, there’s no way 2015 shouldn’t break every single yearly box office record on the books. The calendar is simply jam packed with huge movies. They may end up being good, or maybe they won’t, but either way they’re going to put asses in seats. These are films audiences are excited for. Films they demanded. In some case, films we’ve been waiting years to see or never thought we’d actually see.

All that said, there’s an embarrassment of potentially awesome movies coming out during 2015. I considered at least 50 before cutting back down to a top ten that really speak to my personal tastes. Then I threw in ten more for good measure. Either way, there’s no doubt that, as great a year as 2014 has been for film, 2015 undoubtedly has it beat in the “potential” column. Especially when it comes to those big time Hollywood blockbusters I tend to get really excited about.

So, without further ado, here are my most anticipated films of 2015. Read More »

Angie’s Most Anticipated Films of 2015

Avengers Age of Ultron Science Bros

Even as I scramble to get in a few more 2014 releases before I close the book on this year, I’m looking forward to 2015. Next year promises to be huge for Hollywood, packed as it is with big-name sequels like Star Wars 7 and Avengers 2. But it also looks like a good time for movie lovers, not just movie studios. A lot of those tentpoles look genuinely good. And a lot of riskier ventures look like they’ll pay off. And that’s not even getting into all of the indie gems buried ahead, waiting for us to discover them at Sundance or Toronto or what have you.

Films from the last category were naturally left off my list, as I can’t get excited for a movie I haven’t heard of yet or know nothing about. But for a list of the films (big and small) that I do know about, and am eagerly looking forward to, join me after the jump.  Read More »

Jurassic World wrap photo

You’d think anyone who saw the first Jurassic Park would know better than to get too close to the raptors. And Chris Pratt has called Jurassic Park “my Star Wars,” so we can definitely assume he’s seen that kitchen scene a few times.

Yet here he is in the latest photo from Jurassic World, hanging out with to a raptor like it’s no biggie. Maybe when you’ve gone head-to-head with a tiny plastic despot and an evil alien overlord, a dinosaur seems less threatening. See the new Jurassic World photo after the jump.  Read More »

YouTube Most Watched Trailers Of 2014

We saw some pretty major trailers in 2014. There were trailers for sequels 10, 20, even 30 years in the making; ones for mysterious passion projects; and trailers for adaptations of beloved books. But only one trailer gets to be the most major trailer of 2014. And it’s probably not the one you think it is.

The top movie might surprise you because its not Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Which movie trailer tops the YouTube Most Watched Trailers Of 2014 list? Find out after the jump.

Jurassic World T-rex

The Jurassic World trailer showed us quite a bit, but one thing we didn’t see was one of the series’ signature dinosaurs: the Tyrannosaurus Rex. As a follow-up to that trailer release, however, the film’s official website has launched, and with it comes the first look at the film’s T-rex. Granted, it looks like, well, a T-rex. And what we see is merely a pair of CG renders of the beast. But that’s better than nothing. At the same time, director Colin Trevorrow has provided some commentary on the trailer, and his explanation of a few different points will definitely be of interest to fans who have questions about the new film. See the Jurassic World T-rex images below, along with some talk from the director. Read More »

short Jurassic World trailer

Update From Editor Peter Sciretta: I have added another Jurassic World fan edit trailer, this one longer and more of a throwback to the original 1993 Spielberg film Jurassic Park. Watch it now after the jump.

There’s a lot in the Jurassic World trailer, as we thoroughly dissected yesterday. But one editor had the idea that less is more, and while it’s not our place to say that the first look at the film showed too much there’s something persuasive in this short Jurassic World trailer. The one-minute edit of the footage is cut very much to the tune of the recent Godzilla trailers that worked so well. While it can’t fully emulate those edits thanks to the limitations of using footage already cut for a different trailer, there’s a vibe here that works really well. Read More »

Jurassic World Dinosaur-Human Hybrids

Universal released the Jurassic World trailer yesterday (click here if you havent seen it yet) and while I enjoyed it it seems like some people were up in arms over the storyline reveal that the park owners had created a bigger, badder, and genetically-modified dinosaur. In May we exclusively talked to Jurassic World director Colin Trevorrow about the genetically modified dinosaur and he explained himself quite nicely. I will include that after the jump.

But for those of you who still think the genetically modified dinosaur plot is stupid sight-unseen, it could have been much worse. A very early version of the script featured a storyline with dinosaur DNA genetically modified with human DNA to create Human-Dinosaur mutant creatures. Now that sounds horrible. See the original concept art of the Jurassic World Dinosaur-Human Hybrids, after the jump.

Jurassic World Chris Pratt up

Universal Pictures gave fans a nice little holiday gift Tuesday with the early release of the Jurassic World trailer. It was the first big look at what director Colin Trevorrow has in store for the iconic Steven Spielberg/Michael Crichton franchise. The answer is the fulfillment of John Hammond’s dream: a dinosaur theme park where no expense is spared. However, after years, things are getting a bit stale. So the Jurassic World scientists create a new dinosaur. And we know that’s a big no-no.

As expected, reactions to the Jurassic World trailer ran the gamut from wide-eyed wonder to eye-rollingly dumb. People in the latter camp cited some of the new ways dinosaurs are being used at the park as an argument, as well as some of the computer generated effects. Now, the movie comes out in seven months so all of the effects will be finished and look better by then, but one shot in particular won’t. In fact, one shot in particular was made only for the trailer and will not be in the movie. Find out which below. Read More »
