It’s been four long years since disaster hit the Jurassic World theme park. In the time since then, Claire Dearing (Bryce Dallas Howard) has traded heels for sneakers, a severe bob for long flowing locks, and a shallow corporate mindset for conservation activism.

A new Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom viral website reveals the Dinosaur Protection Group’s mission, and offers a peek at Claire’s more sunny outlook.

The Get Down trailer

Last month, HBO cancelled Terence Winter and Martin Scorsese’s Vinyl after already having renewed it for a second season. But if you’re mourning the loss of your window into the 1970s New York music scene, fear not — Baz Luhrmann‘s The Get Down is arriving in just a few weeks. Though to be fair, this 1970s New York-set music drama looks pretty damn different from that other 1970s New York-set music drama.

The Get Down unfolds at the dawn of punk, hip-hop, and disco, following the “young, scrappy, and hungry” types at the forefront of those movements. The cast is loaded with intriguing up-and-comers like Justice SmithHerizen GuardiolaShameik Moore, and Skylan Brooks, most of whom are trying to make it in music one way or another. Watch the first The Get Down trailer after the jump, but be warned it may make you really frustrated that you can’t watch the show right freakin’ now. Read More »

The Get Down trailer

Rick Famuyiwa’s Dope had a lot going for it, but one of the very best things it did was introduce the world to Shameik Moore. The relative unknown immediately won us over with his charming, moving performance, and had us eager to find out just what he was going to do next.

As of today, we have our answer. Moore is part of the sprawling ensemble cast of Baz Luhrmann‘s new Netflix drama The Get Down, about the rise of hip-hop, punk, and disco in 1970s New York. Which, yes, sounds a lot like a certain other drama premiering on HBO next month — but the perspective couldn’t be more different, and in any case we live in an age where streaming and DVR allow us to watch as many ’70s music dramas as the industry is willing to churn out. The Get Down looks like a must-watch no matter what other shows exist out there. Watch The Get Down trailer after the jump.  Read More »
