Chris Pratt Hanging With A Raptor In This New Jurassic World Image

But if you’re in the midst of making a film, you can call on some fun imagery. That’s just what Jurassic World’s Colin Trevorrow has done for a new tweet.

Yes, that’s Chris Pratt seemingly hanging with a raptor (whose name is not given, but we’d like to think is called Fiona) and if you've seen the first trailer for the film, you’ll know that in addition to Pratt’s Owen somehow being able to make a leather waistcoat work, he’s also a dino behavioral specialist who studies and works with raptors.

“Don’t try this at home,” warns Trevorrow’s tweet. It's sound advice, since, like those who work with big cats or other predators, Owen knows that raptors are not your friends, no matter how closely you work with them.

And Jurassic World will naturally provide another cautionary tale for those who think that to make money they can tamper with nature, as its set in a functioning Jurassic Park that looks to drum up business with a brand new dinosaur. Which, of course, means that there’s running and screaming...

With Bryce Dallas Howard, Ty Simpkins, Nick Robinson, Vincent D’Onofrio, Jake Johnson, Omar Sy and Irrfan Khan among the cast, Jurassic World will be out on June 12.

Tom Hiddleston Wanted For The Sandman

After years of wallowing in believed-unfilmable development hell, Neil Gaiman’s Sandman appears to be creeping closer to actually hitting screens in the hands of David S. Goyer, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and The Fades’ Jack Thorne. But just who should play the iconic central figure, Morpheus? According to Gaiman, Tom Hiddleston could be a good shout.

While the author – who is also a producer on the film – seriously considered Benedict “ubiquitous” Cumberbatch, the actor is a little busy conquering every genre role under the sun, including Marvel’s Doctor Strange. "It's a funny thing with Morpheus, says Gaiman. “Again, it's that thing where you look around and think, 'Yes this person would be a fantastic person', and then time passes. "There was a time Johnny Depp would've been a great Morpheus, but now he's too old and it's fine. I think the first time I saw Benedict was as Sherlock Holmes, I thought, 'wow, that's incredibly Morpheus'. And fans probably thought the same because they immediately started doing fan-art, meshing the two of them up."

Still, there is someone who could handle the mantle while also melting the Internet should he even get near the project: "Then again, Tom Hiddleston is still out there! And the truth is, as far as I'm concerned, anybody who sounds English with great cheekbones can probably pull it off."

Casting, for now at least, seems a little way off. But Gaiman seems happy to simply be more involved this time around. "My position on it has always been, for over 25 years now, I would rather see no Sandman movie than a bad Sandman movie. A couple of times, people say, 'It's a crime there's never been a Sandman movie', and a couple of times, to be honest, I have thrown my body in front of a bus on a couple of bad ones over the years. I'm just happy that no bad Sandman movie has ever been made. But I'm really hoping that a good one will be. They're a good team. And with Joseph Gordon-Levitt in charge, his instincts are good and he loves the material. He wants it to be true to the material."

According to Gaiman, he’s set to see a new draft of the script in the next week or so, which means we still have a wait to see if this latest attempt to bring Dream, Death and the rest to screens actually works out.

Pixels Posters Invade A City Near You

You have to feel for the big, iconic cities of the world. If they’re not being lashed by crummy weather, they’re being targeted by alien invaders and other cinematic catastrophes. With Pixels, giant versions of video-game enemies are attacking locales such as London, Paris and San Francisco.


Yes, the likes of the Golden Gate Bridge, the Eiffel Tower and the Houses of Parliament are once more being assaulted, this time by Pac-Man, Centipede and Space Invaders. It’s all in service of Adam Sandler’s new action-comedy, which finds extra-terrestrials misreading video feeds of classic arcade games as a declaration of war. They decide to attack us using versions of ships and other icons from games and mankind has to fight back. To help out, the US president (Kevin James) recruits his childhood friend and former video-game champ (Sandler) to lead a group of old-school arcade players.


Peter Dinklage, Josh Gad and Michelle Monaghan and Brian Cox are all aboard the film, with Chris Columbus behind the camera, working from Tim Herlihy and Timothy Dowling’s script.

The Interview No Longer Going To Be Released.

In light of the decision by the majority of our exhibitors not to show the film The Interview, we have decided not to move forward with the planned December 25 theatrical release. We respect and understand our partners’ decision and, of course, completely share their paramount interest in the safety of employees and theater-goers.

Sony Pictures has been the victim of an unprecedented criminal assault against our employees, our customers, and our business. Those who attacked us stole our intellectual property, private emails, and sensitive and proprietary material, and sought to destroy our spirit and our morale – all apparently to thwart the release of a movie they did not like. We are deeply saddened at this brazen effort to suppress the distribution of a movie, and in the process do damage to our company, our employees, and the American public. We stand by our filmmakers and their right to free expression and are extremely disappointed by this outcome.

Spielberg Finds Sophie For "THE BFG"

Spielberg finds Sophie for BFG! NEWCOMER RUBY BARNHILL HAS BEEN CAST AS “SOPHIE” IN SPIELBERG’S ADAPTATION OF ROALD DAHL’S “THE BFG

DreamWorks Studios announced today that newcomer Ruby Barnhill has been cast as the young girl, Sophie, in Roald Dahl’s beloved classic story, “The BFG.” Steven Spielberg will direct the film adaptation of the children’s novel. Published in 1982, “The BFG” is the tale of a young London girl and the mysterious Giant who introduces her to the beauty and peril of Giant Country. Barnhill joins Mark Rylance who has been cast as the “Big Friendly Giant.”

“The BFG” will be 10-year-old Ruby Barnhill’s first feature film role. She has been acting for two years and will appear in the upcoming BBC BAFTA award-winning children’s drama “Four O’Clock Club.” Ruby lives in Cheshire with her parents, younger sister and Tom the cat and is a member of her local youth theatre.

“I feel incredibly lucky and I’m so happy,” said Ruby Barnhill. “Sophie gets to go on this wonderful adventure and I’m so excited that I get to play her.”

“After a lengthy search, I feel Roald Dahl himself would have found Ruby every bit as marvelous as we do,” said Steven Spielberg. “We have discovered a wonderful Sophie in Ruby Barnhill.”

Luke Kelly, Managing Director of the Roald Dahl Literary Estate and Roald Dahl's grandson, said, “The character of Sophie is one of the most endearing young heroes in Roald Dahl’s stories. She is as brave as she is curious and has an innate sense of wonder. Many congratulations to Ruby on landing the role. We hope that making ‘The BFG’ proves an utterly magical adventure for her.”

DreamWorks acquired the rights to the book in 2010 after Kathleen Kennedy brought it to the company. Melissa Mathison, who last teamed with Spielberg and Kennedy on "E.T.," has written the screenplay. Spielberg, Frank Marshall and Sam Mercer will produce while Kennedy, John Madden and Michael Siegel are on board as Executive Producers. Kristie Macosko Krieger and Adam Somner are Co-Producers.

Spielberg will begin production on "The BFG" in early 2015 and it will open in U.S. theaters on July 1, 2016. The Walt Disney Company is distributing the film in the U.S. and select international territories while Mister Smith Entertainment is handling distribution in Europe, Africa and the Middle East. DreamWorks’ partner, Reliance, will distribute the film in India.

“The BFG” will be the latest Roald Dahl title to be adapted for stage and screen, following major films including “Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory” (1971), “James and the Giant Peach” (1996), “Matilda” (1996), “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory” (2005) and “Fantastic Mr Fox” (2009).

About Roald Dahl and his legacy

Roald Dahl (1916–1990) was one of the world’s most inventive, mischievous and successful storytellers. His stories are currently available in 58 languages, and, by conservative estimate, he has sold more than 200 million books. Ten percent of all the Roald Dahl royalties are donated to the two Roald Dahl charities - Roald Dahl’s Marvellous Children’s Charity and The Roald Dahl Museum and Story Centre. Roald Dahl Day is marked annually all over the world on Roald Dahl’s birthday, September 13th, and in 2016 there will be global celebrations for the Centenary of his birth, which will coincide with the release of “The BFG” movie.
