'Jurassic World': See Chris Pratt ride with some raptors -- exclusive

It’s never an easy walk in Jurassic Park. In fact, guests typically end up running like hell. The fourth installment of Universal’s biggest franchise is no exception. Opening in theaters June 12, World is set 22 years after the original film. The dino-themed amusement park on Isla Nubla has been thriving for years, yielding four-star restaurants (hello, Nobu!) and beautiful resorts.

But in an effort to create new buzz and boost attendance, a hybrid dino is hatched—and that’s when the island’s human population, including dino researcher Owen (Chris Pratt), park operations manager Claire (Bryce Dallas Howard), and her two young nephews (Nick Robinson and Ty Sympkins), are sent sprinting in terror. “There are dinosaurs and there’s the other—there’s this thing that is not one of them, that is not of them,” teases director Colin Trevvorow (Safety Not Guranteed), who was specifically picked by Park director (and World executive producer) Steven Spielberg. Trevorrow adds, “There’s a lot of bold new ideas in the movie and I’m pushing it as far forward as I can. I know Steven didn’t want me to make a carbon copy of the earlier films. So we’re going for it.” READ FULL STORY

Glenn Howerton was almost Star-Lord in 'Guardians of the Galaxy'

While it’s difficult to imagine anyone else in the role of Star-Lord than Chris Pratt, if the Parks and Recreation star didn’t fill the role, it would have gone to another comic actor and master of the night(man).

New 'Jurassic World' poster keeps it simple

Jurassic-World

The new poster for Jurassic World bets on simplicity, featuring an all too familiar logo with the tagline “The Park Is Open.” It’s a stark throwback, as many have mentioned, to the original poster for Jurassic Park. (Tagline: “An Adventure 65 Million Years in the Making.”) READ FULL STORY

Character actors have an important message for Hollywood

Character-Actor-PSA.jpg

Under the headline “The Last, Disposable Action Hero,” New York Times writer Alex French posited earlier this year that “There are now more indistinguishable, barrel-chested eight-packed aspiring stars than ever.” To address this problem, Entertainment Weekly gathered some of Hollywood’s best character actors while we were in San Diego for Comic-Con for this important message.

Chris Pratt shows off Star-Lord's spaceship, 'MTV Cribs'-style

One of the great things about Guardians of the Galaxy is its grimy, lived-in set design—it’s an aesthetic that’s cribbed directly from Star Wars, in a good way.

In this Guardians featurette, America’s new best bro Chris Pratt shows off the practical sets for Peter Quill’s spaceship, the Milano, MTV Cribs-style. It’s kind of a mess, but that’s how Star-Lord rolls. At least until Xzibit comes to pimp his ride.

 

 

Video: 'Guardians of the Galaxy' TV spots showcase character origins

Guardians-of-the-Galaxy.jpg

There are still two more weeks before Guardians of the Galaxy cruises into theaters, but there are two more new TV spots to pad its landing with audiences. For those counting at home, that’s now 22 teasers, trailers, featurettes, extended looks, and TV spots for the big-budgeted Marvel gamble—at least according to the film’s YouTube page.

By now, you must know the renegade characters and what’s at stake—save the galaxy. The new clips explain why members of the self-proclaimed Guardians might have a score to settle with Ronan, the cloaked villain threatening their existence. And Drax the Destroyer proves to be idiom-deficient. READ FULL STORY

'Guardians of the Galaxy's UK trailer turns down the music -- VIDEO

Guardians-of-the-Galaxay.jpg

The first wave of teasers and trailers for Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy emphasized the comic book movie’s most eccentric qualities, a wild bunch of universe-saving criminals that include a tree, a raccoon, and a green-skinned Zoë Saldana. If you never read Guardians in print, it didn’t really matter, according to the studio; instead, it chose to play up the “these aren’t you older brother’s superheroes” angle. “Hey, we’re playing Blue Swede’s ‘Hooked on a Feeling’ and Norman Greenbaum’s ‘Spirit in the Sky,'” the clips blared. “That’s how you know this movie is cool!”

Perhaps the Guardians are even less well-known in the U.K. — or perhaps those songs are — because they now have a straightforward, ironic-music-free trailer that gives the best primer yet for what this movie is actually about. Chris Pratt’s scoundrel thief gets to deliver all the rah-rah speeches, but Rocket Raccoon (voiced by Bradley Cooper) is the wise-ass scene-stealer. Watch the de-stylyzed trailer below: READ FULL STORY
