Jurassic World featurette

Let’s face it, the dinosaurs may not be the biggest factor in convincing people to head to the theater for Jurassic World. The biggest factor in selling the June 12 sequel is our memories of the first time. That is, the first time we sat down, whether it be at home or in a theater, to watch Steven Spielberg‘s Jurassic Park.

That nostalgic memory is the focus of a new Jurassic World featurette. Stars Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Nick Robinson and Ty Simpkins talk about their first experiences with the film, as does director Colin Trevorrow. Spielberg himself even pops in to chat about it. There’s some new footage too, but it’s mostly stuff from the latest trailer.

Below, see the new Jurassic World featurette and read my memories of seeing Jurassic Park. Read More »

Jurassic World set visit

In July 2014, I had the pleasure of visiting the set of Jurassic World. After the jump you will find a roundup of over 50 things I learned on the Jurassic World set visit, ranging from cool bits of trivia (for instance: a neat suggestion Steven Spielberg made to vastly improve an idea Colin Trevorrow pitched) to interesting information about the theme park world of the film. This is probably one of the coolest sets I’ve ever visited. We will be featuring interviews from the set elsewhere on the site, so look out for those as well.

Jurassic World Trailer breakdown

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 »

Legend of Zelda netflix

Netflix and Nintendo are at work potentially developing a TV series based on The Legend of Zelda. The news broke last week and got video game fans salivating. Sure there was a short lived Zelda TV show many years ago, but a Nintendo property hasn’t been adapted into a big budget, live-action…well…anything since the early Nineties. And The Legend of Zelda has long been at the top of fan’s wish lists for a new show of movie.

But what is the show going to be? All we know at the moment is Nintendo and Netflix want a family friendly show with the aesthetic of Game of Thrones. Okay, but how old will Link be? Zelda? Which will be the main character? Is Ganon the bad guy? What story will they use? At this point, without a script or showrunner, all options are likely on the table.

Since most of The Legend of Zelda games are about younger characters, that how we went with our casting wishlist. We tried to pick actors who, for the most part, aren’t super famous but are age appropriate. Actors both in the box and way outside it. The resulting list features lots of people who you may or may not have heard of, but you wouldn’t be surprised to hear were cast on a Netflix show. That’s not to say we didn’t stretch here or there.

So below, we’ve got our own Legend of Zelda Netflix casting wishlist for Link, Zelda, Ganon and then a writer/showrunner/director type. Check it out. Read More »

As you’ve no doubt heard by now, Spider-Man is coming to the MCU. But the powers that be aren’t simply merging Sony’s existing Spider-Man franchise with the Marvel movies — no, this is going to be a whole new Spider-Man, which means the webslinging role is up for grabs again.

Marvel and Sony have yet to reveal whom they want to put on the Spidey mask, but while they mull it over we’ve got some ideas for them. After the jump, run down our new Spider-Man casting wishlist.  Read More »
