Ready Player One

Back in March Steven Spielberg was named the director of Ready Player One. The film is an adaptation of the Ernest Kline novel of the same name. But because Spielberg has been quite busy working on Bridge of Spies and The BFG, casting director Ellen Lewis has been responsible with overseeing the auditioning process.

So far Gene Wilder is the only actor rumored for a role. Previous reports have attached him to play James Donovan Halliday – creator of OASIS, the fictional gaming world that serves as the setting for the novel. It may be a while before we get a confirmation on that, but there is a new shortlist of actresses who are vying for the female lead. Elle Fanning (Maleficent, Super 8), Olivia Cooke (Bates Motel, The Signal), and Lola Kirke (Mistress America) are three of the top contenders the role of Art3mis. More on this and who is up for the role of the male lead 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 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.

Jurassic World Image

Jurassic World is set some 20 years after the events of Jurassic Park, and as you can imagine, the park has had time to grow and thrive, while facilities have decayed. But the humans have returned to bring the park back to its once sparkling potential. Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Jake Johnson, Ty Simpkins, Irrfan Khan, Omar Sy, and more star in this semi-reboot/sequel. And while director Colin Trevorrow has expressed disappointment in some of the leaks that have found their way onto the internet, he doesn’t intend on letting that stop him.

Now three new images have been released. There aren’t any dinosaurs in sight, but we do get a look at the new generation of characters that hope to survive the Jurassic World. Hit the jump to see them.
