Warner Bros. is seriously banking on a resurgence of Harry Potter fever. At a fan event in London on Thursday, J.K. Rowling herself confirmed that Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, which hasn’t even come out in theaters yet, will be a five-film franchise.
The universe that Michael Crichton and Steven Spielberg created with 1993’s Jurassic Park is a world ripe with all kinds of possibilities. What would a world in which the resurrection of extinct species is a reality be like? Can an ostensibly foolproof system of controlling these creatures and making sure they don’t escape their enclosures really work? (No.) Does life, uh, find a way? (Yes.) This summer’s Jurassic World chose to tell a simpler, more action-y tale than its predecessors, but from what Colin Trevorrow has said about its sequel, Jurassic World 2 will take a more nuanced approach to the possibilities of genetically resurrected dinosaurs.
Another month, another trailer about talking animated animals. The latest in this category is Rock Dog, a movie about a Tibetan Mastiff who would rather be a musician than guard his herd of sheep. It’s a Chinese-American production based on the Chinese graphic novel Tibetan Rock Dog by Zheng Jun. The animation style feels a little simplistic until you really take a closer look to see the details like fur and grass and dust on a wool hat.
The cake might be a lie, but plans for a Portal movie aren’t according to J.J. Abrams, who is still working on developing it and Half Life into films. Video game company Valve announced Abrams would be working on the projects three years ago, but so far we haven’t seen many updates. However, they’re still on Abrams’ mind, as he promised we’d get some news “fairly soon.”
What do actors do between takes? Acting is hard work, but there’s also a whole lot of time when actors just have to sit there doing nothing while camera lenses are fixed or shots are set up or their co-stars are getting into position. After their hilarious dueling set videos during production of this summer’s Central Intelligence, it looks like Kevin Hart and Dwayne Johnson are back at it again during their downtime in the jungles of Hawaii while filming the Jumanji sequel.
Brits are in uproar over the newest installment in the Transformers franchise, as photos were published yesterday of Blenheim Palace, the birthplace of Winston Churchill, dressed up in Nazi flags. Yeah, that Winston Churchill, the one who told Hitler that no, he was not allowed to invade Russia, sorry not sorry.
You know video game movies, films that do all they can to finagle a two-hour plot out of what essentially amounts to button-mashing and sometimes includes characters with questionable outfit choices? Here’s a message to all you die-hard Fruit Ninja fans out there: stop wearing down the prints on your index fingers on the screen of your iPads, and rejoice, for we are getting the Fruit Ninja movie we’ve been clamoring for all these years.
Brangelina is no more, love is dead, and oh, by the way, here’s the first trailer for a new movie starring Brad Pitt. Paramount no doubt figured they might as well take advantage of his name trending on Twitter and release the trailer for Allied. Or the trailer release was scheduled for today all along, in which case it would be quite a coincidence.
More than fast cars or fistfights or crime-committing while crime-fighting, the Fast and Furious movies are about one thing: family. And family, as we all know, means nobody gets left behind or forgotten. Vin Diesel really wants to make sure we don’t forget about the late Paul Walker’s character Brian O’Connor, because apparently he wants to find some way to bring him back.
The events of September 11, 2001 changed a lot of things. Airline security got tighter, the War on Terror became a regular national news item, and, overall, the outside seemed a little less safe than it had the day before. The repercussions of 9/11 were also felt as far as Hollywood, with the industry’s output of films based on or around themes of violence, terrorism, and war taking on a more serious, sinister bent. “Post-9/11 horror” and “post-9/11 action” became units students study in film class. A lot of films already in production went through slight alterations: the World Trade Center towers were digitally erased from New York City skyline scenes in movies released after the attacks, and entire scenes featuring the towers were cut. Hawaii is about the furthest you can get from New York and still be in the U.S., but even so, there’s a whole scene in Disney’s Lilo & Stitch that was altered so that audiences watching the film so soon after 9/11 wouldn’t be disturbed.
