Brand New Mark Englert JURASSIC WORLD Poster Will Be Available at San Diego Comic-Con [UPDATED with Variant]

by     Posted One week ago

jurassic-world-poster-slice

Well, this is going to be a problem.  Colin Trevorrow just tweeted out a stunning Jurassic World poster that a special few will get their hands on at San Diego Comic-Con, but included zero details on how to get it.  I’m still bummed I haven’t been able to get the JC Richard or Aaron Horkey Jurassic Park prints for Mondo, so scoring one of these Mark Englert designs might have to be an SDCC 2014 priority.

The combination of the old and new here is particularly impressive.  We’ve got the park construction going on in the background, but a very familiar smashed Jurassic Park vehicle up front.  However, it isn’t the one responsible for the destruction looming over the flipped car, but rather a Velociraptor.  Perhaps they’re the guys in charge this time around?  Hit the jump to check out the art for yourself.  The film opens on June 12, 2015 in 3D and IMAX, and stars Chris PrattBryce Dallas HowardVincent D’OnofrioIrrfan KhanNick RobinsonTy SimpkinsJake Johnson, Omar Sy, and Judy Greer.

Come June 12, 2015, Jurassic Park will be a fully operational park and every park needs a brochure.  How else would you know where to catch the Mosasaurus Feeding Show or how to get to the official Jurassic Park golf course?  Because who wouldn’t want to squeeze in a quick 18 during a trip to a facility filled with creatures that have been extinct for about 65 million years?

The Jurassic World brochure has popped up online and it’s got a list of park highlights, the types of dinosaurs on display, a map of Isla Nublar and even some very familiar sponsors, too.  Hit the jump to check out what’s going down in the new and improved version of John Hammond’s original vision. And don’t forget, “PLEASE do not tap on the glass, cross barriers, throw anything into the exhibits, make excessive noise, tease or call out to the animals.”  We all know what could happen.

When it comes to teasing out info about a movie, Universal and director Colin Trevorrow are doing it right with Jurassic World.  They’ve had behind-the-scenes video, shadows of a dinosaur, and several official images.  We know just enough about the plot—there is now functional Jurassic Park but when the owners try to liven things up, bad things happen—but not enough that we feel we already know too much.  The latest Jurassic World image gives an intriguing bloody handprint, so hopefully this is a sign that we could be in for some fun dino carnage when it comes to human prey.

Today, the NBC’s The Today Show went to the set of Universal’s upcoming blockbuster Jurassic World (corporate synergy!), and spoke with the film’s stars.  The movie takes place 22 years after Jurassic Park and is set on a fully functional park on Isla Nublar.  As star Chris Pratt explains, the park’s revenues are declining, so they bring in a new attraction, “and it doesn’t go well.”  It’s kind of cool that the movie is willing to acknowledge that humanity could come up with a miracle like bringing dinosaurs back from extinction, but eventually we’d all get bored with them.

Hit the jump to check out interview with Pratt, co-stars Bryce Dallas Howard, Nick Robinson, Ty Simpkins, and, director Colin Trevorrow, also to get a brief look at the set.  The film also stars Vincent D’OnofrioIrrfan Khan, Jake Johnson, Omar Sy, and Judy Greer.

Jurassic World is exactly one year away, and so Universal has released three new images from the upcoming sequel.  The movie takes place 22 years after Jurassic Park and is set on a fully functional park on Isla Nublar.  Details are still under wraps, but director Colin Trevorrow says that the film will have new dinosaurs created by the park’s geneticists.  I imagine it will be a while before we see any of the dinosaurs, but it’s still nice to have a first look at Chris Pratt‘s character (he has a motorcycle so that’s how you know he’s cool) and co-stars Nick Robinson (The Kings of Summer) and Ty Simpkins (Iron Man 3).

JURASSIC WORLD Gets Patched up in New Set Photo from Director Colin Trevorrow

With images of vans, chairs, and garbage bins, we should accept that Jurassic World is going to show us a whole lot of nothing for some time.  Plot details are tightly under wraps (it’s rumored that the story has the park up and running, but mayhem ensues when cross-bred dinosaurs go on a rampage and the humans have to rely on “good dinos”).  Today, director Colin Trevorrow tweeted out an image of a patch for the “Isla Nublar Veterinary Services” of Jurassic World.  So this lends a bit more credence to the rumor that the story takes place in a “functional” dinosaur theme park.

Hit the jump to check out the new Jurassic World image.  The film opens June 12, 2015, and stars Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Vincent D’Onofrio, Irrfan Khan, Nick Robinson, Ty Simpkins, Jake Johnson, Omar Sy, and Judy Greer.

JURASSIC WORLD Director Colin Trevorrow Talks Omar Sy’s Character, Using Animatronic Dinos, and the Film’s Broader Conflict

by     Posted 96 days ago

Filming on Jurassic World is currently underway in Hawaii, but Colin Trevorrow took some time to reveal a few more details about the film.  It should have gone without saying, but he said anyway, “We definitely talked about [sequels] a lot,” the director/co-writer revealed. “We wanted to create something that would be a little bit less arbitrary and episodic, and something that could potentially arc into a series that would feel like a complete story.” This seems unlikely.  I just don’t buy that a major studio would want to take one of their marquee franchises and stretch it beyond this one movie.

In news that is actually newsworthy, hit the jump for what Trevorrow had to say about Omar Sy’s character, using animatronic dinosaurs, and the film’s larger conflict.  The film also stars Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Vincent D’Onofrio, Irrfan Khan, Nick Robinson, Ty Simpkins, Jake Johnson, and Judy Greer.    Jurassic World opens June 12, 2015.  If you missed them, click here to see the first official images from the film.

French actor Omar Sy had a breakthrough role with the French film The Intouchables and landed the part of Bishop in the upcoming blockbuster X-Men: Days of Future Past.  Now he’s joined another tentpole feature by signing on to co-star in the fourth Jurassic Park movie, Jurassic World.  Unsurprisingly, since we don’t know much about the plot, we don’t know much about his role, but it’s good to see another talented actor join the cast.  The movie also stars Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Vincent D’Onofrio, Irrfan Khan, Nick Robinson, and Ty Simpkins.

Hit the jump for tweets from Sy and director Colin Trevorrow about the actor joining the film.  Jurassic World opens June 12, 2015.

B.D. Wong Set to Return for JURASSIC WORLD; More Details Revealed about Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard’s Characters

jurassic-park-bd-wong

Every Jurassic Park sequel has had a returning character from the original, but they were leads (Jeff Goldblum and Sam Neill, respectively).  Jurassic World won’t break from tradition, but it will take a much smaller character and bring him into the cast.  According to IGN, B.D. Wong, who played the InGen’s chief geneticist Dr. Henry Wu, will be returning for the upcoming sequel.  “He had a much larger role in the original novel, he was the engineer of this breakthrough in de-extinction,” director Colin Trevorrow explains. “He spent two decades living in Hammond’s shadow, underappreciated. We think there’s more to his story.”

Hit the jump for some more details about the lead characters played by Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard.  The film also stars Nick Robinson (The Kings of Summer) and Ty Simpkins (Iron Man 3).  Jurassic World opens June 12, 2015.

Vincent D’Onofrio to Play Villain in JURASSIC WORLD [Updated with Character Details]

by     Posted 150 days ago

jurassic-world-vincent-donofrio

The highly anticipated Jurassic World has cast its villain, and it’s not exactly a T-Rex this time around.  Deadline reports that Vincent D’Onofrio has landed the antagonist role in director Colin Trevorrow’s follow-up, about which we know next to nothing.  One assumes the dinosaurs will still be the main threat for the film’s protagonists as D’Onofrio will likely be playing the pic’s human foil—possibly a person favoring monetary potential over the human life, though it’s also possible that Trevorrow has crafted a decidedly different feature in which a human character is actively controlling/using the dinosaurs to attack the core group of heroes.  Hit the jump for more, including news of another cast member being added in a supporting role.

[Update: A new report has revealed the character details for both D'Onofrio's role and the role to be played by Irrfan Khan (Life of Pi), giving us our first hint at the plot of the film. Read on after the jump.]

Chris Pratt Talks JURASSIC WORLD; Says It Answers the Question of “Why Would They Do That Again?”

by     Posted 172 days ago

chris-pratt-jurassic-world-slice

We got some encouraging news about Jurassic World this morning when director Colin Trevorrow announced that he will be shooting the pic on 35mm and 65mm film, and now even more exciting news has surfaced regarding the project’s story.  Chris Pratt is set to star as the lead in Jurassic World, and the actor recently spoke a bit about his involvement and Trevorrow’s take on the material.  This is the first big franchise film for Trevorrow, who only just made his feature debut with 2012’s impressive indie Safety Not Guaranteed, so fans have been curious about how he’ll make the transition to a big franchise film.

According to Pratt, the filmmaker has found a fascinating way to approach the material by directly answering the burning question about a third Jurassic Park sequel: why would anyone think it’s a good idea to interact with dinosaurs again after it went so badly the previous three times?  Hit the jump to see what Pratt had to say about the film and whether his character is more like Jeff Goldblum’s Dr. Malcolm or Sam Neill’s Dr. Grant.

JURASSIC WORLD Shooting in 35mm and 65mm; Starts Filming in April in Hawaii

We have a couple of brief Jurassic World stories for you this morning.  First off, director Colin Trevorrow (Safety Not Guaranteed) tweeted that he’ll be working with cinematographer John Schwartzman on the picture, and they’ll be shooting on 35mm and 65mm.  As Bleeding Cool points out, 65mm strongly hints towards an IMAX release, although I would say the movie being a major blockbuster hints towards an IMAX release.  The 65mm just means it will probably look much better in IMAX.  Schwartzman’s filmography notably includes The Rock, Armageddon, and The Amazing Spider-Man, so he more than knows his way around a blockbuster.

Chris Pratt Confirmed to Star in JURASSIC WORLD alongside Bryce Dallas Howard, Nick Robinson, and Ty Simpkins

Why have one major franchise when you can have two?  A couple months ago, we reported that Guardians of the Galaxy star Chris Pratt was being sought for the lead in the upcoming Jurassic Park sequel, Jurassic WorldBryce Dallas Howard, Nick Robinson (The Kings of Summer), and Ty Simpkins (Iron Man 3) had already signed on, and now Ron Howard has tweeted that “Bryce and Chris meet for the 1st time on red carpet they will be co-stars in next Juraissic”.  We don’t know any details on Pratt’s role or anything on the plot beyond being “a new sci-fi terror adventure” that will take place 22 years after the events of the first movie.

Pratt’s voice will soon be heard in the lead role of The LEGO Movie on February 7th, and then he’ll be leading Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy on August 1st.  Filming on Jurassic World is set to begin in Louisiana on June 2nd for a June 12, 2015 release date.

Start Dates Announced for THE FANTASTIC FOUR, TERMINATOR: GENESIS, and JURASSIC WORLD; All 3 Films to Shoot in Louisiana

Three of 2015’s blockbusters will be setting up shop in Louisiana this summer.  Production weekly has announced that The Fantastic Four is set to begin filming in Baton Rouge on March 31st, which is a bit surprising since casting has yet to be announced.  If this March 31st date holds, then we should be hearing some casting news for the upcoming reboot very soon.  Next, Alan Taylor’s, Terminator: Genesis, will be shooting in New Orleans beginning on April 21st, and stars Emilia Clarke and Jason Clarke.  Finally, Jurassic World starts filming on June 2nd, and will star Bryce Dallas Howard, Nick Robinson, and Ty Simpkins.  Both Terminator: Genesis and Jurassic World are still in the casting process as well.

These three films are scheduled to come out within a month of each other.  Jurassic World leads off when it opens in 3D on June 12th; The Fantastic Four follows in 3D on June 19th; and Terminator: Genesis will be released on July 1st.  I assume it will also be in 3D, but we haven’t heard an official announcement.

We still don’t know the plot for Colin Trevorrow‘s upcoming Jurassic Park sequel, Jurassic World, but the casting seems to be coming together.  As we previously reported, Ty Simpkins (Insidious) will play one of the leads in the movie, and he’ll possibly be joined by Jake Johnson, Josh Brolin, and Kings of Summer star Nick RobinsonBryce Dallas Howard was also in the mix, and now she’s confirmed to USA Today, “They’re relaunching the Jurassic Park franchise, so I’ll be chasing dinosaurs. That’s going to happen next year.”

The movie might also be adding Jason Schwartzmann to the cast.  According to Hypable [via Bleeding Cool], Schwartzmann is coming on board to face off against dinosaurs.  I must admit the thought of that scenario gives me no shortage of joy.  Jurassic World opens June 12, 2015.
