Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom Final Trailer

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom
Director: J. A. Bayona

Rated PG-13 | 128 Minutes
Release Date: June 22, 2015

That wide-eyed look of wonder you experienced when watching the first Jurassic Park is something that can only be experienced first hand. Of course, whenever a film like that is loved and successful, you are going to want to continue those adventures with sequels. Unfortunately, the Jurassic Park sequels never lived up to the first film. But just before it met its untimely extinction, it was revived, thanks in part to the reboot craze. Though Jurassic World was a box office smash, it wasn’t as loved by critics. In fact, it was widely panned.

Now we are here with Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, the second chapter of this reboot. This time J.A. Bayona is at the helm using a script written by Colin Trevorrow and Derek Connolly. But even with some new blood directing this, it isn’t nearly enough to get the film away from the fact that this franchise continues to have stupid people doing stupid things, over and over and over again. My full review below.

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom Final Trailer

Following Jurassic World‘s monstrous box office run in 2015, Universal immediately gave the sequel the greenlight. However, Colin Trevorrow would be unable to return due to his obligation to direct Star Wars: Episode IX, at the time. So they brought in J.A. Bayona (The Orphanage, A Monster Calls) to direct Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom. And based on what we have seen so far, it is quite the departure from Trevorrow’s vision.

Now Universal has released the final trailer for the upcoming film, which, judging by the way it looks, will be a lot more scarier than any of the Jurassic films we have previously seen. Check it out below.

Jurassic World title card

The Jurassic World sequel will no longer go by a generic numerical title. Instead, the J.A. Bayona-directed film will be called Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom.

We’ve heard that the film will be more terrifying than any of the previous Jurassic installments. But as the poster indicates, it seems Jurassic World is going to be doing more burning than scaring. But let’s not draw early conclusions from a mere teaser poster. More on the story below.

Video: Josh Gad Recruits An All-Star Cast To Pry ‘Star Wars’ Spoilers From Daisy Ridley

Star Wars: The Last Jedi

It appears that Josh Gad persistently trying to pry Star Wars: The Last Jedi spoilers from Daisy Ridley will be an ongoing thing. For the first and second videos, it’s just been him trying to get answers to his questions. When that was going nowhere, he enlisted the help of his Murder on the Orient Express co-star Dame Judi Dench. The video seemed to have the answers to his questions, but it cut off at the right moment.

Obviously we aren’t getting anywhere with Gad leading the questioning, so he’s recruited some extra help. Let’s just say there is a bit of a crossover going on with stars and filmmakers from Murder on the Orient Express, Jurassic World, The Avengers, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Hamilton, and even Star Wars: The Force Awakens questioning her. And no, I’m not talking about Daisy Ridley, herself. Check out who else wants to know more about Star Wars: The Last Jedi in the video below.

Pete's Dragon blu-ray banner

Pete’s Dragon
Blu-ray Combo Pack | Digital HD
Director: David Lowery
Screenwriter: David Lowery, Toby Halbrooks
Cast: Bryce Dallas Howard, Oakes Fegley, Wes Bentley, Karl Urban, Oona Laurence, Robert Redford
Distributor: Walt Disney Studios
Rated PG | 103 Minutes
Release Date: November 29, 2016

This year’s Pete’s Dragon comes off the heels of Disney’s recent live-action adaptation successes like Maleficent, Cinderella, and The Jungle Book. While the original film was never as popular as some of these remakes, it has gained a cult following and David Lowery’s reimagining resonated with critics. Now, the film is available for you to own for your home entertainment pleasure on Blu-ray/DVD or Digital Download.

In this reimagining, a 10-year-old boy orphaned boy named Pete (Oakes Fegley) is discovered living in the woods, and he claims to have been there with his friend Elliot, a giant green dragon. A local park ranger named Grace (Bryce Dallas Howard) takes him in, while trying to discover the truth about Pete’s situation. While his story seems far-fetched, Grace’s dad (Robert Redford) has been telling the tale of a mythical dragon in the woods for decades. Meanwhile, Elliot goes looking for Pete, only to come up against Karl Urban’s crew of lumberjacks, who are on the hunt for the dragon.

Pete's Dragon #7

Pete’s Dragon
Director: David Lowery
Screenwriter: David Lowery, Toby Halbrooks
Cast: Bryce Dallas Howard, Oakes Fegley, Wes Bentley, Karl Urban, Oona Laurence, Robert Redford
Distributor: Walt Disney Studios
Rated PG | 103 Minutes
Release Date: August 12, 2016

Looking at David Lowery‘s Pete’s Dragon, you might not have known that it was based on the 1977 Disney film of the same name. In fact, the only similarity that the two films share between each other is that there is boy whose friend just so happens to be a real live dragon. Normally these reimagined stories would involve contemporary tweaks while staying true to the source material. Just look at The Jungle Book or Cinderella. But Lowery didn’t set out to that with Pete’s Dragon. Instead, his film deconstructs the idea of a remake of a Disney classic, and he turns it into something that resembles those childhood bedtime stories that your parents would read to you.
