Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom is a fast-paced thrill ride that serves as the middle chapter in a trilogy. It serves that purpose well – maybe even a bit better than average.

If there are flaws (and there are)… DINOSAURS!

Blue Is Alive! Trailer: Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom!

Life cannot be contained, so Owen probably shouldn’t be surprised when Claire informs him that the velociraptor he named Blue is still alive.

That is not the only revelation contained in the first trailer for Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom…

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom premieres on June 22, 2018.

First Look Photo: Jurassic World 2!

Colin Trevorrow – director of Jurassic World and co-write the script for the upcoming sequel – has released the first photo from Jurassic World 2 and it is intriguing.

Reminiscent of the study of original Jurassic Park creator Professor John Hammond, the photo features a girl standing, back to us, looking at the skeleton of a triceratops – with what look skeletons of velociraptors flank the Big T in the middle.

Who is the girl, we have to ask – is she descended from Hammond? Does she have a connection to Jurassic World’d Owen and Claire?

Hopefully, we’ll find out before the film premieres on June 22nd, 2018.

The World We Live In Teasers: Black Mirror: Season 3!

BlackMirror_EP3_nosedive_0101r

Charlie Brooker’s Black Mirror is an examination of the world we live in and the way technology affects us – set in twenty seconds into the future or a kind of alternate new.

The New Yorker called it ‘The Twilight Zone for the Digital Age’ and I see no reason not see it in those terms – especially given the two featurebits for Nosedive (pictured above) and Playtest, two of the season’s six episodes, just released by Netflix.

Check them out after the break. Black Mirror premieres on October 21st.

Pete’s Dragon Is Magical!

Petes-Dragon-Movie-Disney-2016

The original Pete’s Dragon was a hybrid live-action/animated film with an animated dragon that attempted to recapture the vibe of Disney’s big hit Mary Poppins. It didn’t quite make it and so it’s joined the ranks of the charming but slight Disney family films that Mary Poppins moved above.

As the choice for a remake, it’s pretty smart because it takes a property with no real baggage and actually does something with it (unlike the live action Cinderella which was a much bigger gamble).

The result is a family film that is pure Disney magic.

Disney is revamping its beloved children’s classic, Pete’s Dragon – taking a slightly more dramatic, atmospheric approach., but with an underlying sense of fun.

The film’s first trailer is an intriguing mix of tones and suggests a film that’s meant for the whole family – not just kids. Check it out after the jump. Pete’s Dragon opens on August 12th.
