Just a few minutes ago director Colin Trevorrow (Safety Not Guaranteed) tweeted out the first poster for Jurassic World and it definitely sets a dark tone for the film (even though I expect this version to not be full of grit – it has Chris Pratt as the lead after all).  I’m super stoked about this movie so hopefully this means some kind of trailer is on the way soon.  We know the bulk of the film takes place inside a functioning park on Isla Nublar 22 years after the events of Jurassic Park and I can’t wait to see what kind of things are in store for us.  It feels like Friday the 13th Part 6 when they finally had campers at Crystal Lake!

Colin Trevorrow may have wrapped Jurassic World at the beginning of August, but that’s not stopping him from sharing more images from set, and this latest one is a fun throwback to the original film.  Remember when Dennis Nedry (Wayne Knight) tries to ditch Jurassic Park before all hell breaks loose and accidently knocks down the sign pointing to the East Dock in the process?  It looks as though that same sign made it into the fourth installment.

Hit the jump to check out that new Jurassic World image for yourself.  The film stars Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas HowardNick RobinsonTy SimpkinsVincent D’OnofrioIrrfan KhanJake JohnsonJudy Greer, and Omar Sy, and will hit theaters on June 12, 2015.

Director Colin Trevorrow Remembers Richard Attenborough with New JURASSIC WORLD Image

The world lost a great filmmaker and actor this past weekend with the passing of Sir Richard Attenborough.  Though his directing credits included films like Gandhi, A Chorus Line, and Chaplin, many probably best remember him as the mild-mannered John Hammond from Jurassic Park.  Though filming on the new Jurassic Park film, Jurassic World, has wrapped, director Colin Trevorrow felt it was fitting to share a new Jurassic World image in remembrance of Attenborough, as it shows a statue memorializing his John Hammond character.  Though Hammond himself likely doesn’t appear in Jurassic World, the character no doubt looms large thanks to Attenborough’s unforgettable performance.

Let’s Be Cops marks director Luke Greenfield’s (The Girl Next Door) return to hard R-rated comedy after the mellower PG-13 affair Something Borrowed.  The film stars Jake Johnson and Damon Wayans Jr. as two friends who impersonate police officers using rented uniforms and a car purchased on eBay, but in the midst of all their fun they run into trouble with a dangerous Russian mobster.  Rob Riggle joins them in their adventures as a straight-laced real cop who can’t quite make heads or tails of the unlikely duo’s partnership

I recently had the chance to sit down with the trio to discuss the film and the somewhat surprising revelation that Riggle essentially plays the straight man in this movie.  We also talked about Johnson and Wayans’ New Girl chemistry and Johnson’s appearance in the upcoming Jurassic World.  Hit the jump for the Let’s Be Cops interview (be sure to check out the red-band trailer as well).  The film also stars Nina DobrevJames D’Arcy, and Keegan-Michael Key.  20th Century Fox releases it wide this Wednesday, August 13th.

Now playing around the world is director James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy.  As most of you know, the story follows five intergalactic misfits—Peter Quill aka Star-Lord (Chris Pratt), Gamora (Zoe Saldana), Drax the Destroyer (Dave Bautista), Groot (voiced by Vin Diesel), and Rocket (voiced by Bradley Cooper)—as they set out to protect a powerful and mysterious orb from the villainous Ronan the Accuser (Lee Pace).  For more on the film, read Matt’s review or click here for all our previous coverage.

At the recent Los Angeles press day, I landed an exclusive video interview with Chris Pratt.  He talked about his reaction to everyone loving the film, how no one in the film acts like they’re in a sci-fi movie, if he knew how much he’d have to dance when he was cast, the humor, whether he pays attention to what Marvel announces (like upcoming release dates), what he’d like to see in Guardians of the Galaxy 2, Jurassic World, and more.  Hit the jump to watch.

Colin Trevorrow Marks End of Production with Final JURASSIC WORLD Image from the Set

Principal photography on Jurassic World has now come to a close.  Director Colin Trevorrow marked the occasion earlier today by tweeting out a final Jurassic World image from the set, which shows the slate comfortably in the mouth of a (dead?) dinosaur.  Of course, additional photography is common on almost every big tentpole film nowadays so there’s always the possibility that cameras might roll briefly once more, but for all intents and purposes the bulk of Jurassic World is in the can, and now Trevorrow has a very long post-production process to look forward to.  The box office success of Guardians of the Galaxy is good news for the pic, as star Chris Pratt has already proven himself to be an excellent leading man; I’m really looking forward to seeing him in the context of the Jurassic universe.  We still don’t know too much about the plot, but the story takes place within a functioning park on Isla Nublar 22 years after the events of Jurassic Park.  Dinosaur chaos ensues.

New JURASSIC WORLD Image Puts Chris Pratt Behind Bars

With Guardians of the Galaxy opening today (and tracking like it’s going to kill this weekend) it was a smart move on the part of Jurassic World director Colin Trevorrow to cash in a bit on the hype and tweet out this new image from the film featuring Chris Pratt, who may be a real-deal movie star by the end of the weekend.   I haven’t written about this film myself yet here on Collider so I’ll throw my hat in the ring and say that I’m very excited for it.  It feels like they’re doing something new and exciting with the material and I’m stoked to see dinos wreak havoc on an open theme park with thousands of guests in attendance.

Earlier this week we learned that this cool Jurassic World poster designed by Mark Englert would be available at Comic-Con.  The instructions said to text JURASSIC to 834567 for the poster drop information.  It turns out part of the fun was to find the silver Jurassic World Mercedes Benz on the streets of San Diego that was handing out the posters.  Hard to say for sure, but this thing looks rugged enough to handle some dinosaur action.  I would not be surprised to see it make an appearance.

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

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.

New JURASSIC WORLD Behind-the-Scenes Video Featuring Interviews with Stars Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, and More

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.

In the last few weeks, we’ve heard a lot from Jurassic World director Colin Trevorrow about the film’s setting, timeline, characters, and, of course, dinosaurs.  And while we got a few early looks at the sequel’s human characters in these recent images, it’s really the dinos we all want to see.  So imagine our surprise when Trevorrow himself tweeted out the first image of one of the terrible lizards … sort of.

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).

It’s also pro-forma at this point that a gigantic blockbuster will be released in IMAX, but new partners Universal Pictures and Legendary Entertaniment have recently signed a deal to make sure their movies keep getting the extra-large-format treatment.  IMAX has sent out a press release announcing that fifteen of the studios’ blockbuster titles will be released in IMAX through 2017.  Fast & Furious 7, Dracula Untold, Seventh Son, Jurassic World, Everest, Crimson Peak, and Warcraft are among the movies that will be released in IMAX.  Keep in mind that most of the films Universal/Legendary will release in IMAX weren’t actually shot in IMAX, but that doesn’t mean they won’t look good.  They just won’t be true-IMAX.
