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.
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.
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.
A reimagining of Disney’s cherished family film, “Pete’s Dragon” is the adventure of an orphaned boy named Pete and his best friend Elliott, who just so happens to be a dragon.
Disney has released a motion poster version of the film’s first one-sheet and it is very cool. Check it out after the jump. Pete’s Dragon stars Robert Redford and Bryce Dallas Howard and will be in theaters on August 12th.
Pete’s Dragon, a remake of the 1977 family classic, is one of the few Disney remakes (excuse me, reimaginings) that has flown under the radar, but throw in Robert Redford, and it leads the pack of a few of the other upcoming live action Disney films.
Jurassic World is as solid a summer blockbuster as you could ask for – it’s smart (but not too smart), flashy (maybe a hair too flashy) and filled with great visual effects that never (quite) overwhelm its basically decent heart.
It has an old-fashioned hero, kids in peril, a heroine who goes from stick in the mud to tuchus-kicker, an amoral scientist, an incredibly mercenary would-be visionary and… DINOSAURS!
