Jurassic World dominated the box office this past weekend, raking in over $511 million worldwide making it the #1 global opening of all-time. And over the weekend we told you that Chris Pratt is already signed on for the inevitable Jurassic World sequels. We have a lot of clues as to what Jurassic World 2 might be about and who might be involved, and we know Jurassic World director Colin Trevorrow has said that he won’t be back in the director’s chair.
When I spoke with Trevorrow last week I learned the details on why he isn’t returning to direct Jurassic World 2, how he will remain involved in the franchise, who might helm the second film and how he went about setting up future Jurassic World sequels in his film both plot-wise and thematically. I also get a Jurassic World 2 update from producer Frank Marshall.

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.

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.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
Daredevil has been streaming on Netflix for just about two weeks, and evidently is doing well enough to warrant continuation. Netflix just gave the green light to Daredevil season 2, with plans to air in 2016. But there’s a big change. Steven DeKnight is out as showrunner due to “previous commitments,” and Doug Petrie and Marco Ramirez will jointly take on the showrunner role in his stead. Read More »
A new Jurassic World trailer is likely right around the corner, but before that happens, a few new images have gone online. Most of them are stills from the film featuring Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard and others. Those are interesting but the coolest bit is a possible leaked teaser poster that features the Mosasaurus, the aquatic dinosaur we’ve seen in the trailers, trailing a shark in the water. And it’s kind of terrifying. It doesn’t say anything about the movie really, but it’s an incredibly striking image. Check out the Jurassic World poster, along with some new images, below. Read More »

Two short weeks remain until Marvel comes to Netflix. Daredevil will hit the streaming service at 12:01 a.m. PST on Friday April 10 and the race will begin to see how the Man Without Fear is going to be handled in this new format.
With the countdown nearing its end, Netflix has begun to promote the show more aggressively, including this brand new TV spot. It features a lot of footage we haven’t seen yet, the most intriguing of which is Scott Glenn as Stick, the man who trains Matt Murdock (Charlie Cox) to fight. Check out the new Scott Glenn Daredevil footage below. Read More »
