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.

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).

Hit the jump to check out the new Jurassic World images.  The film opens June 12, 2015, and also stars Bryce Dallas Howard, Vincent D’OnofrioIrrfan Khan, Jake Johnson, Omar Sy, and Judy Greer.

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.

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.

Michael Giacchino Will Compose the Score for JURASSIC WORLD

Having previously applied his immense talent to the Star Trek and Mission: Impossible franchises in addition to the upcoming Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, Oscar-winning composer Michael Giacchino will now take on another beast of a franchise: Jurassic ParkTHR reports that Giacchino will be scoring director Colin Trevorrow’s upcoming sequel Jurassic World, with an aim to honor John Williams’ iconic work while also creating “something bold and new for people who love dinosaurs.”  Giacchino isn’t the first new composer to step into the Jurassic Park world, as Don Davis took over the franchise on Jurassic Park III.

Giacchino—whose consistently fantastic work ranges from Up to Lost to The Incredibles—has a unique connection to the Jurassic Park franchise, as his first composing job was to write the score for the The Lost World video game.  In addition to Apes, Giacchino’s 2014 credits include the sci-fi epic Jupiter Ascending and the ensemble dramedy This Is Where I Leave YouJurassic World opens in theaters on June 12, 2015.

First Images from JURASSIC WORLD Reveal Bryce Dallas Howard and Dinosaur Destruction

Earlier today, director Colin Trevorrow dropped a few fascinating nuggets of information about the upcoming sequel Jurassic World by discussing his desire to helm further installments in the franchise, the nature of Omar Sy’s character, and revealing that they are using animatronic dinosaurs for the production.  Now, just a few hours later, the first official Jurassic World images have landed online as filming is underway in Hawaii.  They’re not incredibly revealing, but we do get a first look at Bryce Dallas Howard’s character as well as a couple of environment shots.  Trevorrow previously described Howard’s role as “very corporate, very controlled,” and that is certainly reflected in this debut image.

Hit the jump to check out the first Jurassic World images.  The film also stars Chris Pratt, Nick Robinson, Ty Simpkins, Vincent D’OnofrioB.D. Wong, Judy Greer, Jake Johnson, and Irrfan KhanJurassic World opens in theaters on June 12, 2015.

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

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.

Jake Johnson and Damon Wayans Jr. Talk Hard-R Comedy LET’S BE COPS, Nudity, Improvising, Joe Swanberg’s DIGGING FOR FIRE, and More

I’ll admit it: director Luke Greenfield’s Let’s Be Cops just wasn’t on my radar.  While I’m a fan of Greenfield’s The Girl Next Door, I wasn’t sure what to expect with his new comedy starring  Damon Wayans Jr. and Jake Johnson.  However, after watching the great-looking red band trailer at CinemaCon, I think we might have an early contender for box office surprise of the summer.  If you haven’t heard of the film, Let’s Be Cops stars Johnson and 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.  The film also stars Nina DobrevRob RiggleJames D’Arcy, and Keegan-Michael Key and it opens August 13th.

Shortly after presenting the trailer at CinemaCon, I landed an exclusive video interview with Johnson and Wayans Jr.  They talked about how the project came together, how much was improvised, the test screenings, how it’s a hard R-rated comedy with nudity (they say it’s like the 80s movies where it’s a big comedy, then it turns and the action happens), deleted scenes, working with Greenfield, the promotional tour for the film, and more.  In addition, Wayans Jr. talked about his upcoming standup tour and Johnson discussed about his small role in Jurassic World and how he’s about to start filming director Joe Swanberg’s next film Digging for Fire, which starts filming soon and will also star Sam Rockwell, Rosemarie DeWitt, and Brie Larson.  Hit the jump to watch.
