jurassic park 25th anniversary

Next month, you can journey back in time — not 65 million years to the Jurassic period – but 25 years, to the 1993 release of Jurassic Park.

The Steven Spielberg film that launched an indomitable blockbuster franchise is welcoming you back to the park with a theatrical re-release in honor of Jurassic Park‘s 25th anniversary. But you better run fast (and not in heels) to the box office: Jurassic Park will only be returning to theaters for three days this September.

The Fog Returning to Theaters

When it comes to horror movies directed by John Carpenter and starring Jamie Lee Curtis, of course Halloween gets all the glory. But don’t sleep on The Fog, a landmark horror classic that reunited the two in 1980 and is also worth your attention every time the spooky season rolls around. And if you haven’t gotten a chance to see the film featuring a creeping, cursed cloud of mist inhabited by ghost pirates, this fall will be the best time to catch it on the big screen.

The Fog is returning to theaters with its first ever 4K restoration from Studiocanal, and it’s coming to theaters just in time for Halloween with a release set for late October. Find out more about The Fog returning to theaters below. Read More »

Demolition Man Taco Bell

San Diego Comic-Con is full of special experiences and installations, trying to convince fans to check out the latest movies and TV shows that Hollywood has to offer. However, this year’s convention had a surprising installation that came out of left field but was welcomed with open arms just the same.

Inspired by the 1993 sci-fi action blockbuster Demolition Man (starring Sylvester Stallone, Wesley Snipes and Sandra Bullock), the fast food chain Taco Bell decided to make good on the prediction made by the film for the year 2032, when the movie takes place. You see, in the future, Taco Bell apparently won what is dubbed the “franchise wars,” and every restaurant in the merged metropolis of San Angeles is now a Taco Bell. So Comic-Con was treated to an upscale Taco Bell dining experience that is way fancier than anything you’ve ever gotten from their drive-thru, and we checked it out first-hand. Read More »
