‘The Mummy’ Trailer: Tom Cruise Has No Idea What He’s Unleashed
eelyajekiM   |  

Universal's The Mummy

Sometimes explorers should just leave ancient temples be. But where’s the fun in that? We’ve all heard the story before of an ancient evil being unleashed on accident, on purpose, or just because someone is curious. It’s all been done before. But for Universal’s reboot of The Mummy, it’s a little bit different. That’s because it’s a part of a dark universe of monsters.

In the film’s final action-packed trailer we see Tom Cruise being attacked by ancient monsters and hurled out of vehicles. All the while, audiences will “Witness The Beginning of a Dark Universe.” Check out the final trailer below.

The Mummy reboot Sofia Boutella

Universal Pictures has released the second trailer for The Mummy, starring Tom Cruise, Sofia Boutella, Jake Johnson, Annabelle Wallis, and Russell Crowe.

While the first trailer was focused on all the action, this new trailer gives us a little more context as to why this particular mummy is evil and what she intends to do now that is has been brought back to life, thanks in no small part to some curious people who accidentally found the sarcophagus. Check out the full trailer below.

The Mummy reboot Tom Cruise Annabelle Wallis

Now that Universal Pictures has released the first trailer for Alex Kurtzman‘s The Mummy, starring Tom Cruise, it’s time to answer some of those lingering questions we may have about the film. No, not about the shared Monsters universe that the studio is creating, but on how they shot that gravity-defying scene that sees Cruise and co-star Annabelle Wallis twisting and turning in a plane.

As it turns out, this wasn’t CGI or done on a soundstage. This was real and shot in an aircraft, appropriately called The Vomit Comet. Watch the featurette here below.

‘The Mummy’ Trailer: Tom Cruise Meets Terrifying Gods and Monsters

Universal's The Mummy

The popularity of a shared universe is undeniable. Disney has their Marvel Cinematic Universe, while Warner Bros. has the DC Extended Universe. Both studios use comic book source materials to expand and grow their superhero franchises. This doesn’t leave much for other studios. But in the case for Universal, they have their classic monster movies at their disposal. So, in order to keep up with the competition, they are launching a shared Monsters universe, and it will all kick off with Alex Kurtzman‘s The Mummy, starring Tom Cruise and Sofia Boutella (Kingsman: The Secret Service, Star Trek Beyond)

The film’s first trailer dropped during Sunday night’s episode of The Walking Dead. Check it out here below.

‘Jurassic World’ Interview: Director Colin Trevorrow

Jurassic World director Colin Trevorrow

Colin Trevorrow is going to be a name you’ll be hearing a lot more of in the coming years. Though the filmmaker does have a few directing credits to his name, he got his first major recognition for his Sundance comedy hit, Safety [Not Guaranteed]. After that, he made the leap from small indie film to Jurassic World, starring Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Vincent D’Onofrio, and more. The film, which takes place 22 years after the events of Jurassic Park, sees a fully functioning park complete with rides, interactive experiences, and family friendly shows. But behind the scenes, there is a villainous plan that will put the park and everyone in it, in real danger.

We were given a special phone interview with director Colin Trevorrow, where we got to talk about Jurassic World, making that jump from an indie film to a major blockbuster, the threat that social media and internet blogging leaks present to a film production, practical effects vs CG, Star Wars, and much more.

Check out the interview below.

‘Jurassic World’ Will Be A Direct Sequel To The Original, According To Colin Trevorrow
BAADASSSSS!   |  

Jurassic World Chris Pratt

Jurassic World is shaping up to be one of this summer’s most promising big-screen blockbusters, but how exactly will the fourth installment in the franchise birthed by Steven Spielberg‘s groundbreaking 1993 smash dinosaur adventure Jurassic Park address the events of the lackluster (but fun in their own way) sequels The Lost World: Jurassic Park (1997) and Jurassic Park III (2001)? Short answer: it won’t.

According to a recent interview with Yahoo! Movies, Jurassic World director Colin Trevorrow claims that his entry in the series won’t acknowledge the second and third movies. In the world of Jurassic World, they never even happened.

‘Jurassic World’ Trailer: Chaos Reigns On Dinosaur Island Theme Park

Jurassic World

Colin Trevorrow‘s Jurassic World takes places years after the events of the first film, Jurassic Park. In many ways this new installment can be considered a reboot that takes place in the same timeline. In Jurassic World, the newly refurbished theme park has better management, and a better dinosaur tamer (played by Chris Pratt). But as always, if you want to increase park attendance, you must bring new attractions. And for a park full of dinosaurs, that means increasing that feeling of fear.

As we will see in the new trailer here below, management got a little ahead of themselves, and broke the boundaries of playing god by creating their own dinosaur, the dangers of which were already expressed in the previous trailers and TV spots. Now we’ll see why mixing dinosaur DNA to create a new one may not have been the best idea.

Olympus Athens   |  

New Girl Season 4 Cast

New Girl
Season 4 Episode 14: “Swuit”
Starring Zooey Deschanel, Jake Johnson, Max Greenfield, Lamorne Morris, Damon Wayans Jr., and Hannah Simone
FOX
Air Date: Tuesday, February 3, 2015, 9pm

The silliness continues from last week when Schmidt (Max Greenfield) and Nick (Jake Johnson) vow to go into business together. However, they both have to be the boss, which results in the requisite laughter (not for them). The masterpiece that results in this partnership is the “Swuit” — a suit made out of a sweatsuit. Jess (Zooey Deschanel) is their cheerleader, therapist, and ultimately, their model. CeCe (Hannah Simone) has no money for college, so Winston (Lamorne Morris) and Coach (Damon Wayans Jr.) decide to invest in her life and take it just a bit too far.
