Chris Pratt Pets A Baby Dino In The First Footage From Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom

32 minutes ago

Owen Grady has a new raptor to contend with and this time, it’s a cute little baby. What could possibly go wrong?!

In honor of Thanksgiving Weekend, Colin Trevorrow has unveiled the first footage from Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, in which Chris Pratt’s swashbuckling dino expert gets up close and personal with his scaly new friend.

Clocking in at only six seconds, there are no tangible story clues to be found in Fallen Kingdom‘s first teaser, aside from the fact that Owen Grady hasn’t lost his affinity for velociraptors – you know, despite the whole ordeal of Jurassic World when Isla Nublar was almost reduced to rubble.

Perhaps more than anything else, this blink-and-you’ll-miss-it trailer is a nice precursor of what’s to come, given Universal plans to launch the first-look teaser for Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom before the year’s end – likely alongside the release »

Awesome Fan-Made Trailer Shows Us What Zack Snyder’s Justice League Cut Would Look Like

42 minutes ago

Even for those of us who enjoyed the cut of Justice League that was seen in theaters, it’s impossible to deny that it was very much the product of two directors, those being Zack Snyder and Joss Whedon. Furthermore, if you’re someone who’d been keeping up with the strange ballad that was this film’s production, you’re well aware of how it underwent three months of reshoots that significantly factored into the final product.

Actually, there are many of you out there who couldn’t help but notice how much of what Snyder shot wasn’t seen in cinemas, with word on the street saying there’s enough footage to warrant another movie. As such, fan demand in seeing Snyder’s cut has considerably risen, with cinematographer Fabian Wagner also sharing that sentiment.

Fortunately for us, Cinemand has put together a trailer of their own showcasing »

The Last Jedi’s Andy Serkis Hints At Snoke’s “Vulnerable” Side

54 minutes ago

There may be only four weeks standing between now and The Last Jedi‘s arrival – December 15th is the date for your diaries – but still, the origin and creation of Snoke remains firmly under wraps.

It’s all part of Rian Johnson’s masterplan to retain a sense of mystery around the First Order’s Supreme Leader, after the director stressed that Star Wars: The Last Jedi will reveal most, but not all of Snoke’s backstory.

Fast forward to now, and as part of EW’s ongoing Star Wars coverage, the outlet caught up with Andy Serkis to discuss his malevolent villain, who he described as a “terribly powerful, [yet] very vulnerable” character, one who harbors a deep-seated hatred of the Resistance for reasons unknown.

The thing about Snoke is that he is extremely strong with the Force, the dark side of the Force. He’s terribly powerful, of course. »

Catch A Glimpse Of Jodie Whittaker And Her Companion In New Doctor Who Set Pics

1 hour ago

Incoming Doctor Who star Jodie Whittaker has been pictured filming a nighttime scene with her new companion, Graham (The Chase‘s Bradley Walsh).

Said to be completely unrelated to next month’s Christmas Special, which will herald our first true look at Whittaker in action, the prying eyes of the Daily Mail managed to snap these photos in some unspecified wooded area, as the Doctor and Graham infiltrate an industrial factory.

It’s impossible to gauge the context of this scene based on a horde of unofficial set photos, but the Daily Mail’s report does suggest that a stand-in for the Tardis was just out of shot, which would explain why Whittaker’s protagonist is clutching on to an Asian (Japanese?) bag. Graham is also equipped with a pair of wire-cutters, so perhaps our dynamic duo are about to embark on a top-secret mission come 2018?

Your guess is as good as ours, »

James Gunn Explains How Guardians Vol. 2 Impacted Avengers: Infinity War

1 hour ago

It cannot be denied that the feat of creating a decade-long cohesive movie universe with the work of many individual filmmakers is a gargantuan and finely tuned endeavour. Whether you’re a Marvel fan or not – the vast technical achievement of the Marvel Cinematic Universe is, at this point, a simple fact. One of the drawbacks of such a process, however, is the constant stream of speculation about the level of studio involvement and interference required to ensure the smooth transition of narrative between franchise instalments – and that speculation is never more apparent than when individual chapters are about to segue into a massive team-up story. Enter James Gunn, and his comments about Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2 and Avengers: Infinity War.

The reason for the speculation is that his Guardians sequel – released earlier this year – is one of three Marvel solo films that we know will feed almost »

Here’s The Deal With Rorschach In Doomsday Clock #1

1 hour ago

By now, a good portion of you have probably gotten your hands on a copy of Doomsday Clock #1, whether you’ve made an early trip to your local comic shop or attended one of the release parties at 11:57 pm last night. Either way, DC fans are in for quite the ride, especially when you consider that Superman and some of our other favorite heroes are on a collision course with those originating from the Watchmen universe.

Obviously, there’s the appeal that comes with seeing an eventual showdown between the Man of Steel and Doctor Manhattan, but what of other surviving characters such as Nite Owl, Silk Spectre II, Ozymandias and Rorschach? Well, the first two mentioned have yet to be reintroduced, but it has been made known that Ozymandias’ scheme that was hatched at the end of Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons’ original story was eventually exposed, thus »

Justice League Cinematographer Echoes Plea For A Director’s Cut

1 hour ago

You’re not the only one crossing your fingers in the hope that Warner Bros. will release a director’s cut of Justice League.

Fabian Wagner, cinematographer on the pic and one of the DPs currently working on Game of Thrones season 8, has encouraged WB to dive through the archives and piece together all of those scenes that were allegedly left on the cutting room floor. Indeed, one need only look over Justice League‘s trailer campaign to identify all those shots that didn’t make the final cut.

Rumor has it that Warner imposed a two-hour mandate on Zack Snyder and Joss Whedon’s blockbuster, which goes some way to explaining the truncated runtime – at only 119 minutes in length, Justice League is undoubtedly one of the shortest superhero films in recent memory. Hell, it even took Wagner by surprise:

This one was even shorter than I expected, so there »

Leaked Game Of Thrones Set Photos Point To Huge Winterfell Sequence And A Mysterious New Castle

2 hours ago

Winterfell, the largest castle in the North and long-time home of the Stark family, will feature quite prominently in Game of Thrones season 8, if these leaked set photos are any indication.

First spotted by the eagle-eyed folks over at Watchers on the Wall (with a tip of the hat to Oakleaf Photography), these images were taken at some of the show’s key filming hubs in Northern Ireland, including the serene Moneyglass and Titanic Studios.

Since the early days on Game of Thrones, Moneyglass has doubled as the northerly Winterfell, and we’re now hearing that the Stark stronghold is being revamped from the ground up in anticipation of season 8. Massive white sheets have also been scattered across the Irish fields, which only fuels previous rumors that Winterfell will be one of the first castles to come under siege from the invading Night King and his undead army.

Speaking of castles, »

Audiences Divided Over The Predator’s First Test Screenings

2 hours ago

20th Century Fox is beginning to court The Predator out of hiding.

Nine months ahead of release, and exactly 30 years since the launch of John McTiernan’s cult classic, the Powers That Be have begun hosting test screenings for Shane Black’s starry reboot. And let’s just say that early reactions are all over the place.

As reported by MovieWeb, prominent YouTuber ‘Mr H Reviews‘ posted a video concerning these leaked previews, though it’s since been pulled offline. With that in mind, and before we get into the nitty-gritty, we should stress that Fox’s screenings were allegedly held in secret, so there’s no way of telling if these knee-jerk reactions are legitimate.

Nevertheless, they do make for interesting reading, with many admitting that it took some time to adjust to The Predator‘s comedic leanings. This is a Shane Black gig, after all.

The Underwater Mo-Cap Of James Cameron’s Avatar Sequels Will Be Unlike Anything We’ve Ever Seen

3 hours ago

James Cameron is clearly plotting something very, very special with his Avatar sequels.

In what is surely the textbook example of a tale that grew in the telling, Cameron’s franchise has now ballooned to five – count ’em five – instalments, with four CGI spectaculars slated for release between 2020 and 2025. As we speak, the illustrious filmmaker is hard at work developing Avatar 2 and 3, which are poised to dive deep into Pandora’s lush oceans over the next few years.

It’s a tantalizing story expansion that Cameron isn’t taking lightly, either, given he’s employing motion-capture technology…underwater. Now how’s that for pushing the envelope?

Speaking to Collider ahead of the NatGeo special, Titanic: 20 Years Later – incidentally, James Cameron recently paved the way for a Titanic reunion by casting Kate Winslet for the Avatar sequels – the director outlined the reasons why underwater filming can be so difficult. »

Star Wars: The Last Jedi Tracking For Huge $200M-Plus Opening

3 hours ago

Let it be known that the month of December belongs to Lucasfilm’s Star Wars franchise.

Following the one-two punch of The Force Awakens ($248 million) and Rogue One ($155 million), figures relayed by The Hollywood Reporter have today revealed that The Last Jedi is tracking for a mighty $200m-plus opening weekend in North America. An impressive feat by anyone’s standards.

Disney is yet to release its own projections, but insiders anticipate another box office juggernaut from the folks at Lucasfilm, and a $200m bow would allow Star Wars: The Last Jedi to leapfrog Beauty and the Beast ($174 million), another Disney property, to become the biggest opening of the year.

As is par of the course for a Hollywood tentpole, these statistics were measured through unaided awareness – a section of movie polling designed to gauge how powerful a film property is among those audience members who express knowledge of a movie »

James Gunn Cools Talk Of Adam Warlock Being Introduced In Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 3

4 hours ago

The “time must be right” before Adam Warlock is introduced into the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Or so says James Gunn, writer and director on Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. Coming out of Vol. 2 and its delightful post-credits scene, one which Gunn himself fought to keep in the finished cut, many had assumed that Warlock was a shoo-in for the third Guardians movie. But it appears that’s not the case.

Per Twitter, the Marvel mainstay conceded that Adam Warlock was almost left waiting in the wings during Vol. 2, as he wasn’t part of the studio’s plans for either Infinity War or Avengers 4. “We had no plans for him in general,” according to Gunn.

Turns out that’s still very much the case, as the filmmaker recently stressed that Warlock was “never confirmed” for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, which is now incubating in the formative stages of development »

Why Does Every Star Wars Episode End Without Dialogue?

14 hours ago

It’s hard to determine what makes a film timeless, since films are like technology: they only improve as time moves forward. Great works of the past, whether they were westerns, comedies or science fiction, reside in a figurative Smithsonian, and deservedly so. That’s where paradigm-shifting, zeitgeist-infusing, thrill-inducing wonders belong after setting the stage for a new generation of movies. Movies that have eclipsed them in special effects, writing, acting, costumes, cinematography, set design, and direction. We don’t realize it because nostalgia clouds judgment even worse than the dark side. No one really acknowledges greatness until it’s far behind in the rear view mirror.

And yet, there are some things that remain as extraordinary as when they were invented. Sunglasses. In N Out. Game 7. Star Wars.

Of all the reasons to keep watching Star Wars movies, one is often overlooked: there are lots of secrets stashed in that galaxy far, »

Blast From The Past: Examining How Justice League Plays On Our Nostalgia

14 hours ago

While watching Justice League, you get the sense that it brings an end to the first phase of Dceu movies.

In 2011, the company kicked things off with Man of Steel and now, at last, we’ve come to what fans hoped would be the crowning glory of the Dceu – Justice League, the movie in which the comic book titan’s greatest heroes unite against the threat of Steppenwolf. Unfortunately, it’s proving to be a bit of a disappointment critically, and commercially. Failing to crack even $100 million during its opening weekend, Marvel remains the clear box office frontrunner, but that wasn’t always the case.

DC’s heroes have been standing tall on the big screen since 1978, and as a result, the company has tried to ensure that Justice League pays homage to this rich cinematic history as much as it can. They’ve done this by carefully infusing the »

Is WB Shooting More Footage For The Justice League Extended Cut?

16 hours ago

Justice League is now out and, unsurprisingly, it’s splitting people right down the middle. Many fans love it, but critics are giving the film a pounding. Everyone, however, is intrigued to know how it was changed from its original cut.

In case you’ve missed all the behind the scenes upheaval, Zack Snyder had to hand the keys of the movie over to Joss Whedon due to a family tragedy, meaning the reshoots altered Justice League in some major ways. We’re told that only 15-20% of the final cut is Whedon’s, but we suspect this might be underselling it a bit. What exactly belongs to the Avengers director and what came from Snyder isn’t too hard to spot in the film itself, and while a report surfaced over the weekend detailing most of the scenes that had been removed, there’s still been no word on »

Several Returning Villains Revealed For Crisis On Earth-x

16 hours ago

At last, the latest Arrowverse crossover is right around the corner!

Titled “Crisis on Earth-x,” the event airs next week and sees the heroes of Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl and Legends of Tomorrow collide when they have to face an invasion led by their Nazi doppelgangers from another Earth (Earth-x, to be exact). Previous promo images and posters have highlighted the league of heroes, but this new one-sheet puts the focus on the battle between good and evil.

Resembling the comic book-inspired art poster that announced the title of the crossover the other month, the image sets the Arrowverse heroes (Supergirl, Green Arrow, Flash, Atom, Wild Dog, White Canary, Mister Terrific and Vibe) against the Earth-x’ers (Overgirl, Dark Arrow, Blitzen). And, judging by the Nazi-esque banners on the skyscrapers in the background, it looks like this almighty battle is taking place on the latter’s plantet.

The Avengers And The Incredible Hulk Easter Eggs Spotted In The Punisher

17 hours ago

The Marvel/Netflix series have always been grittier and more mature than the McU movies, but The Punisher  pushes the boundaries more than the previous five shows released on the streaming service. The other Defenders were even forbidden from taking part in it in order to keep its ultra-violent tone distinct and unique. All that said, it is still connected to the wider Marvel universe and even featured a few welcome easter eggs for fans to pick up on.

For instance, in episode 9 – “Front Towards Enemy” – Karen Page receives a threatening letter from terrorist Lewis Wilson while in her office at the New York Bulletin. If you draw your attention slightly to the left, you’ll see a couple of interesting framed front pages of the paper.

Check them out in the image below:

The first one’s headline reads “Harlem Terror” and features a blurry image of the Hulk. »

Norman Reedus Teases More Rick/Daryl Conflict To Come In The Walking Dead Season 8

17 hours ago

After being separated for most of season 7, The Walking Dead season 8 has seen Rick Grimes and his best bud Daryl Dixon come to loggerheads over their differing approaches in the fight against the Saviors. Due to being captured and tortured by Negan last season, Daryl is taking a ‘no prisoners’ standpoint, putting down any enemies they come across. Meanwhile, Rick is more open to a fairer fight.

In episode 5 “The Big Scary U,” this conflict came to a head when Daryl wanted to blow a hole in the Sanctuary and unleash a horde of walkers on the unsuspecting Saviors inside. Rick, however, didn’t agree with murdering the workers and families like this and the pair broke out into a fight, with Daryl eventually riding away on his bike, leaving Rick alone.

Chatting to EW in a recent interview, Norman Reedus spoke about how he believes that neither Rick nor Daryl is wrong, »

First Look At Benedict Cumberbatch In New TV Series Patrick Melrose

18 hours ago

Following on from some set photos which saw the actor filming on the streets of Scotland while donning an eye patch, Sky Atlantic and Showtime have unveiled the first official image of Benedict Cumberbatch in Patrick Melrose, his latest TV project. The Sherlock star is looking dapper as the titular protagonist, decked out in sunglasses, a fashionable scarf and coat and a cigarette in hand.

For those unfamiliar with the project, Patrick Melrose is a five-part series based on the semi-autobiographical novels of Edward St. Aubyn, which follow his dysfunctional upbringing as part of an upper-class English family and his later alcohol and heroin addictions, as well as his loves and losses. The character of Melrose has been described as “an aristocratic and outrageously funny playboy who struggles to overcome the damage inflicted by a horribly abusive father and the mother who tacitly condoned the behavior.”

Screenwriters Rashida Jones And Will McCormack No Longer Involved In Toy Story 4 Amid John Lasseter Scandal

18 hours ago

It seems Toy Story 4 is in need of new screenwriters.

The Hollywood Reporter brings word that Rashida Jones walked out on the animated sequel after John Lasseter, the renown head of Pixar and Walt Disney Animation, made an “unwanted advance.” This news comes just as Lasseter takes a six-month leave of absence because of unspecified “missteps.”

Disney’s official statement on the matter failed to mention specifics, but the allegations against John Lasseter are beginning to mount. At the time of writing, Jones has not responded to her alleged incident with the Pixar co-founder, though it should be noted that she’s still listed as Toy Story 4‘s screenwriter. Her writing partner, Will McCormack, also left the project early on in a show of solidarity.

As the director of both Toy Story and its beloved sequel, these accusations are shocking and deeply troubling, and subsequent reports have alleged »
