On April 14, filming began on Jurassic World, the fourth installment in the Jurassic Park franchise (due June 12, 2015), and EW has already scored the very first photos from the secretive set in Hawaii. Details on World — which stars Bryce Dallas Howard (The Help) and Chris Pratt (Parks and Recreation) and is exec-produced by Steven Spielberg — are scarce, but director Colin Trevorrow (Safety Not Guaranteed) promises plenty of paleontological action. “Yesterday I was under a construction crane with Chris Pratt, covered with dirt, eyeballing the exact height of the dinosaur trying to kill him,” he says. “We both cracked up laughing. Sometimes you just have to stop and let the joy take over.” READ FULL STORY

Come hungry, leave happy.
That’s probably the feeling you’ll have after seeing Chef, the new movie from writer/director Jon Favreau. It premiered at last month’s SXSW festival in Austin, and EW has an exclusive clip of the food lover’s film.
Favreau stars as Carl, who quits his job as a chef at a top Los Angeles restaurant and decides to open a food truck in Miami to stir up his creative juices, sauces, and more! The cast includes Sofia Vergara as Favreau’s ex-wife and John Leguizamo as his friend who both helps out in the new culinary venture and with Favreau’s son, played by Emjay Anthony. In the clip, Vergara calls in to check on the progress of the other three men in a typical, overbearing, motherly way. Watch below: READ FULL STORY
Loosely based on a true story, Decoding Annie Parker follows one family’s history of breast cancer — and the woman who teamed up with scientists to find out if the disease has a genetic link. The film, directed by Steven Bernstein, stars Samantha Morton as Annie Parker and Helen Hunt as the lead researcher on her case.
And in an exclusive clip from the film, we are taken back to 1974, when a food fight goes horribly wrong after Annie’s sister Joan (played by Marley Shelton) admits she’s found a lump in her breast.
There are essentially two kinds of alien movies — the kind in which bicycles are magically transformed into flying machines, and the kind in which people’s insides are rather less magically transformed into lunch.
As we inch closer to the May 2 release of The Amazing Spider-Man 2, we’re learning more about the bad guys Spider-Man will face—like Dane DeHaan’s Harry Osborn, a.k.a. Green Goblin. Harry and Peter Parker were childhood friends before Harry left for boarding school. Harry returns to New York to discover that his father, Oscrop’s Norman Osborn, is terminally ill and his son is about to inherit more than just the family business. “It’s a complicated storyline,” DeHaan tells EW. “But to boil it down: This is the origin story for Harry Osborn becoming Green Goblin.”
Making the physical transformation from Harry to Green Goblin wasn’t easy, but the process did help the actor get into the right mindset: “When you look at yourself in the mirror and you’re in the suit and full-on Goblin makeup? You feel like a badass,” says DeHaan. “I look at myself and think, ‘Hell, yeah, I’m the Green Goblin! Let’s go do this.’”

The first trailer for Steven Bernstein’s Decoding Annie Parker gave us a lot to think about, from one woman’s journey to discover the genetic components of breast cancer to what Aaron Paul looks like with long hair. And now we have the exclusive reveal of the film’s first poster.
Decoding Annie Parker, which is loosely based on a true story, follows Annie Parker (played by Samantha Morton) as she finds out that she has breast cancer. But after a family history of the same diagnosis, Parker turns to a team of researchers, led by Helen Hunt, to try and find out if the cancer could be genetic. Add in Aaron Paul as a Canadian pool man, along with Alice Eve, Rashida Jones, Corey Stoll, Marley Shelton, and Ben McKenzie, and you’ve got a pretty good idea of what to expect from this film.
Decoding Annie Parker hits theaters and VOD on May 2.
In early 2010, Rajiv Joseph (above left) and Scott Rothman (right) had never before written a script together, nor had either ever had a screenplay produced. But what the friends, who both graduated with dramatic writing MFAs from NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts, had done was watch a ton of football. It was fitting, then, that just as Joseph’s career as a writer was taking off thanks to the success of his 2009 play, Bengal Tiger at the Baghdad Zoo, a random comment from a surprising NFL draft fan would inspire the two writers to dig in on the project that would eventually, after the dread of turnaround and the euphoria of The Black List, become Draft Day.
Prior to the movie’s April 11 release, Joseph and Rothman described to EW the marathon of anxiety and excitement they endured while watching the movie slowly come to life. READ FULL STORY
If your appetite for shape-shifting alien robots is insatiable, well, buddy … open wide.
Michael Bay tells EW that this summer’s Transformers: Age of Extinction will herald the arrival of at least two more battling ‘bot movies. He thinks of it not as Transformers 4, but as more of a reboot — even though he’s still running the show.
“It’s kind of like a new Transformers,” Bay says. “We had three, the first trilogy, and this is going to be the next one.” The next…trilogy? “Yeah, it’s the first of a new trilogy,” he says after a moment of hesitation. “I’m not necessarily sure that I’m doing [the others], but that’s what it’s meant for.”
Shia LaBeouf is out, and Mark Wahlberg is in as the human lead, and among the new Transformer characters is the fellow you see above — Grimlock, the fire-breathing leader of the Dinobots, a special class of Cybertronian warrior who changes not into a vehicle, but a T-Rex-style brawler. As the June 27 movie heads to theaters, Bay gave us a rundown of some of the other new additions.
