An Open-Shirted Statue Of Jeff Goldblum Appeared In London To Celebrate 25 Years Of ‘Jurassic Park’

Getty Image Jurassic Park — which, unless there’s a scene from JFK I’m forgetting, is the greatest movie in which a dinosaur kills Newman from Seinfeld ever — came out 25 years ago last month. Not a single scene from the film was shot in London, nor is the film’s most unbuttoned star, Jeff Goldblum, from there. And yet, a 25-foot statue of Goldblum, in all his half-naked glory, appeared in front of Tower Bridge on Wednesday. The … [Read more...]

Anna Kendrick Is Obsessed With Finding Blake Lively In Paul Feig’s ‘A Simple Favor’ Trailer

What happens when you mix the star of a movie with the tagline “get pitch slapped,” someone who fought a shark and befriended a seagull named Steven Seagull, and the director of the best action-comedy of the 2010s (Spy)? I guess we’ll find out when A Simple Favor is released. Based on the novel of the same name, A Simple Favor stars Anna Kendrick as a “mommy vlogger” who strikes up a friendship with the impossibly … [Read more...]

R.L. Stine’s Books Come To Life In The ‘Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween’ Trailer

Jack Black has built a career out of playing the best song in the world (tribute), yes, but also starring in family-friendly movies. He was the best thing about Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, which made almost $1 billion at the box office, but let’s not forget School of Rock, the Kung Fu Panda franchise, and Goosebumps, where he played R.L. Stine. Following that film’s success (it made $150 million on a $58 million budget), a sequel, … [Read more...]

The Busiest Weekend For Movies In 2018 Has Grown Much More Crowded

DISNEY For the past three years, Disney has released a Star Wars movie around Christmas: The Force Awakens in 2016, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story in 2016, and The Last Jedi in 2017. With Solo having already come out (although maybe they should have saved it for December), the Mouse House will fill its mid-to-late-December slot with whimsy and penguins (not porg-uins): Mary Poppins Returns, the follow-up to 1964’s Mary Poppins (it’s the … [Read more...]

‘Black Panther’ Star Winston Duke Will Play Kimbo Slice In The ‘Backyard Legend’ Biopic

MARVEL Winston Duke has only two film credits to his name: Black Panther, where he played fierce Jabari Tribe warrior M’Baku, and Avengers: Infinity War, where… same. He’s no John Cazale, but still, not bad! His first non-Marvel Cinematic Universe movie will either be Us, the “new nightmare from the mind of [Oscar] winner Jordan Peele,” or Backyard Legend, a biopic about MMA fighter Kimbo Slice. If it’s the … [Read more...]

Keanu Reeves Confirmed The Intriguing ‘John Wick 3’ Title

Lionsgate The first two John Wick movies are called John Wick and John Wick: Chapter 2, because the Baba Yaga doesn’t need a flashy title to be awesome. (Yeah, I’m looking at you, James “From Russia With Love” Bond.) But just to shake things up a bit, the film series, which will hopefully continue for as long as dogs are adorable (so, forever), is adding a twist to the numerical titles for chapter three. In an interview … [Read more...]

The Actor Who Played Jar Jar Binks Says That ‘Star Wars’ Fan Backlash Led Him To Contemplate Suicide

LUCASFILM The Star Wars series is no stranger to discord (fans can’t even agree on the best movie, let alone the whole brouhaha over The Last Jedi), but there’s one universally regarded truth: Jar Jar Binks is the most hated character. Even the ever-patient Qui-Gon Jinn had trouble dealing with his antics. But there’s a difference between hating a fictional creation, and placing the blame with the actor who plays him/her. Ever … [Read more...]

A Potential ‘Star Wars’ Director Is No Longer Interested Following Fan Harassment

LUCASFILM Assuming you don’t get fired, directing a Star Wars movie is one of the most coveted jobs in Hollywood. The honor has only belonged to eight men (emphasis on men): George Lucas, Irvin Kershner, Richard Marquand, J.J. Abrams, Gareth Edwards, Ron Howard, and Rian Johnson. Christopher McQuarrie — who directed Mission: Impossible – Fallout and Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation, and co-wrote the fantastic Edge of Tomorrow — would have … [Read more...]

Kevin Feige Explained Why Marvel Will Continue Releasing Multiple Movies Every Year

Marvel Since an entire cinematic universe was kicked off with Iron Man in 2008, Marvel has released multiple movies every year, with the exceptions of 2009 (none), 2010 (Iron Man 2), and 2012 (The Avengers). This year alone has seen the Oscar-worthy Black Panther and box office record-breaking Avengers: Infinity War, with Ant-Man and the Wasp to come later this week. And unlike Star Wars, Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige has no intention of … [Read more...]

‘Jurassic World III’ Can Learn A Lot From The Weirdest Scene In The Franchise

Universal Pictures The Last Jedi has been called a lot of things: the best Star Wars movie since The Empire Strikes Back, a subversion of the franchise’s worst tropes, something something it ruined my childhood so let’s remake it starring Bib Fortuna as Rey. (Actually that sounds pretty good). But one thing the film doesn’t get enough credit for being is weird. Rey’s mirror cave vision is (creepy) weird, Chewbacca … [Read more...]

Timothée Chalamet Goes For Oscar Nomination Number 2 In The ‘Beautiful Boy’ Trailer

Timothée Chalamet starred in two of the most acclaimed movies of 2017, one of which, Call Me By Your Name, earned him an Academy Award nomination for Best Actor. (At 22 years old, he was the third youngest nominee in that category ever, behind Jackie Cooper and Mickey Rooney.) How can he possibly hope to match, if not top, the one-two punch of Lady Bird and That Movie With the Peach in 2018? By starring in what looks to be another award-worthy … [Read more...]
