"Jurassic World" will open in theaters this June but little is known about the film except that it is set 22 years after "Jurassic Park."
The recent brief promotional footage of "Jurassic World: The Park is Open" offers little information. The premise is that the park is open for more than 20 years, but people somehow got tired of the dinosaurs. In order to revive the interest, a team of scientists were able to successfully create a genetically modified hybrid called "Indominus Rex" to rake in numbers of tourists and visitors. In the reopened park, tourists can watch the dinosaurs while they feed on sharks and even play around them while inside giant hamster balls.
After being used as an entertainment fare for tourists and visitors of the park, all hell breaks loose when "Indominus Rex" starts killing other dinosaurs. It was then that they realize that the genetically modified dinosaur is a "highly intelligent" animal that "will kill anything that moves." more >>
Director Zack Snyder seems to be keeping with the same faith-based themes he laid out in 2013's "Man of Steel" as a recently leaked "Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice" trailer reveals that the hero is viewed by some of the public as a "false god."
The clip, which appears to be footage taken from a movie theater where the trailer was being shown before a film in IMAX, displays both Batman and Superman, and it seems that the Dark Knight has been given the task to ease the fears of the public by taking on the Man of Steel.
Snyder's 2013 portrayal of Superman in "Man of Steel" featured a Christ-like depiction of him with various scenes, such as him falling in space as if he was nailed to a cross and being a son sent to Earth to save it. The faith angles were imbedded in Superman folklore, according to Snyder's wife, Deborah, who was a producer on the film. more >>
After being in murky waters it seems like "Pirates of the Caribbean" would have a second chance with "Dead Man Tell No Tales." The fifth installment went through some challenges as Johnny Depp, who is reprising his role as Captain Jack Sparrow, figured in an accident that necessitated a surgery.
The 51-year-old star was flown to the U.S. from their location shoot in Queensland to undergo a wrist surgery. Production was originally planned to be on hold for two weeks, citing the incident would only have "minimal effect" on the filming. The production break was extended for another two weeks while Depp recuperates from his accident in early March.
Recent developments point to resumption of production as Mal Tulloch, Media Entertainment and Arts Alliance director of entertainment shares with Gold Coast Bulletin that producers sent letters to the film's cast and crew that principal photography would resume "on or about" April 20. more >>
From what was heard, the upcoming Spider-Man reintroduction, which will commence in the next Captain America movie ("Captain America: Civil War"), will focus on a teenage Peter Parker and that there won't be a new origin.
"In terms of the age of what we believe Peter Parker is, I'd say 15-16 is right. Some of my favorite Spider-Man arcs and Spider-Man stories, he's in high school for a lot of it. We want to explore that," Marvel's head Kevin Feige previously told Collider.
A report from IGN meanwhile cited the Iron Man actor, Robert Downey Jr., saying that fans "should expect the unexpected" when "Captain America 3" hit the theaters this May 6, 2016 and then on his future stand-alone movie, which is eyed for a 2017 release date. more >>
