As if there were any doubt, Jurassic World dominated the box office this past weekend. However, the film has actually over-performed beyond what experts predicted.
Initially, the Jurassic Park sequel was predicted to land $155 million for the weekend. But the latest update pegs Colin Trevorrow‘s nostalgic dinosaur romp as grabbing over $204 million by the end of the weekend, making it the 2nd highest domestic box office debut of all-time, just behind The Avengers at $207.4 million. Marvel Studios might be getting a little nervous though, because some box office pundits are saying that by the time all the numbers come in officially on Monday morning, there’s a chance Jurassic World could top The Avengers and take the #1 spot.
In addition, Jurassic World also raked in over $511 million worldwide, making it the #1 global opening of all-time. And that kind of success means there will be more dinosaur mayhem on the way, and Chris Pratt is already signed on for the inevitable Jurassic World sequels. More after the jump! Read More »

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.

There’s a showdown brewing in the kitchen. Years ago, David Fincher was attached to direct a film called Chef. His version never happened, but John Wells, whose film adaptation of Osage: Orange County just debuted a trailer, is going to make the movie from the script by Steven Knight. The Weinstein Company is behind the film, and they’ve just landed Bradley Cooper as the star. Good job, guys!
But while that Chef was floundering, before Wells and Cooper came on, Jon Favreau wrote his own indie called Chef, and has recruited actors like Robert Downey Jr. and Sofia Vergara (and possibly Scarlett Johansson) to join him. He plans to shoot the film this summer.
So who gets the title? The film that had it first, or the movie that shoots first? How about the one with the more powerful lawyers? Read More »

After branching out with a superhero comedy and an experimental urban drama, Michel Gondry is back to his usual whimsical tricks in Mood Indigo. And what great tricks they are.
A musical-olfactory pianocktail device, a kitchen assistant no bigger than a table spoon, a lung pierced with a water lily, and an underwater church wedding are just a few of the dreamlike images you’ll see in the new trailer. The story, based on the novel L’écume des jours by Boris Vian, centers on a newlywed couple (Romain Duris and Audrey Tautou) whose life together is threatened when the wife falls ill.
