'Jurassic World': Chris Pratt revs up the dino franchise -- PHOTOS

By the time Jurassic World opens in theaters one year from today, June 12, 2015, some people might have a hard time remembering Andy Dwyer. Chris Pratt’s adorably dense Parks and Recreation character made him a star, but with Guardians of the Galaxy set to launch on Aug. 1, Pratt is positioned for big-screen stardom. Just check out the first hunky photo of him from Jurassic World, director Colin Trevorrow’s sequel, which picks up the story 22 years after the original blockbuster. Pratt plays a scientist conducting behavioral research on raptors, but said scientist isn’t wearing his white lab-coat when he takes his motorbike out for a spin. Is it me, or does he resemble a young Robert Shaw?

In one of the other two photos (below), which The A.V. Club first posted, Bryce Dallas Howard looks calm and collected as she faces Pratt’s rugged scientist. It’s unclear exactly who Howard is playing, but judging by her hair, dress, and demeanor, I’m guessing her character is cold, calculating, and possibly morally compromised. And of course, there are also scared children to dangle in front of the dinos, like goats for the audience at feeding time. READ FULL STORY

'Jurassic World' director fights back against spoilers by confirming them

In 2014, big-budgeted movie productions live under constant fear of unauthorized leaks: camera-phone set photos that reveal a mysterious new villain, pirated footage, and Wikileaks-level plot descriptions that pop up on the Internet. One preventative strategy is complete radio silence, the kind of omerta that director Christopher Nolan demands on his films, like this fall’s Interstellar. Then there’s Colin Trevorrow, the director of the 2015 Jurassic Park sequel, Jurassic World. His approach to the Internet spoilers that broke last week was to engage with a journalist, lament that unfortunate development, and then confirm and clarify the details. Um, thank you?

Oscars: Ron Howard, Bryce Dallas Howard among contenders for this year's best live action short

It’s that time of year, when the Academy starts rolling out their initial lists of films in the running for February’s Oscars. Earlier today, they unveiled the finalists for the visual effects award, a list featuring some of this year’s most costly movies. Now the Academy has released some contenders who most certainly will be the lowest-budget films among this year’s Oscar-hopefuls: the live action shorts.

Members of the Academy’s Short Films and Feature Animation Branch have narrowed down a list of 125 qualifying shorts to a group of 11 shortlisted films. The next cut is in January, when the Academy announces a list of three to five nominees in the category.

For the first time ever, the shortlist boasts 11 films instead of ten, due to a tie in the balloting. The films come from several different countries, including Afghanistan, Canada, Belgium and Brazil.

Most of these films were made by filmmakers unknown to the majority of movie-goers, but there is one title that stands out thanks to the names attached: when you find me, executive produced by two-time Oscar winner Ron Howard and directed by his daughter, actress Bryce Dallas Howard. The film was inspired by Canon’s multi-platform “Long Live Imagination” campaign.

Absent from this list are any films that qualified via the Student Academy Awards, which supplied the 2011 winner, God of Love, and two of last year’s nominees, Norwegian film Tuba Atlantic and German-Indian short Raju.

Here is the shortlist for this year’s live action category: READ FULL STORY
