Spectre Opening Sequence Will Be 'Biggest In Bond History'

Empire reports from Day Of The Dead in Mexico

The opening sequence of the 24th James Bond film Spectre, currently filming in Mexico City, is set during the national Day Of The Dead festival, as these new pictures demonstrate. It will, claims long-time Bond producer Michael G Wilson, be "the biggest opening sequence we've ever done, maybe the biggest sequence we've ever done". Coming from a series which has previously sent its hero off a cliff on a motorbike to freefall into a crashing plane, that's no mean feat. {Spectre In Mexico Stills}Speaking from behind the scenes on location, where Empire has spent the weekend watching the Bondian shenanigans unfold, Wilson went on to say that the traditionally explosive pre-title sequence wasn't just going to be a massive on-screen event, but that it was also logistically huge. "The whole vision that Sam Mendes has come up with is very exciting and amazing," he told us. "We've got 1500 extras in Day Of The Dead costumes and make up and we've occupied the centre of Mexico City for days. The only thing that's come close to it was putting on the carnival in Rio in Moonraker, and I think this is a much bigger operation."
The scene kicks off Spectre's story in predictably thrilling fashion, with exploding buildings, a pulse-quickening foot chase through the Day Of The Dead parade and a fight inside a helicopter, which will then perform what promises to be one of the most spectacular stunts in Bond history. The newly-released stills above give a flavour of what to expect, including rooftop gun battles and the mysterious Estrella, played by the recently-cast Stephanie SigmanEmpire witnessed the scene being put together, and can testify that jaws will be dropped come Spectre's October 23 release date.
Filming will soon shift to Morocco and back to Pinewood, having already visited London, Rome and various delightful ski resorts in Austria. Our full Mexico set report will appear in a future issue, but until then why not have another squizz at the moody Spectre teaser trailer that was launched on Friday?

'Jurassic World' TV Spot: The Park Is Open!

Hollywood News from MovieWeb - 10 hours 21 min ago

A deadly new dinosaur is killing for sport in the new TV spot for Jurassic World. The video was shown during tonight's season finale of AMC's hit zombie series The Walking Dead. While Jurassic World will not feature any zombies, it will showcase dinosaurs fans have never seen before in the first three Jurassic Park movies.

Twenty-two years after the events of Jurassic Park, Isla Nublar now features a fully functioning dinosaur theme park, Jurassic World, as originally envisioned by John Hammond. After 10 years of operation and visitor rates declining, in order to fulfill a corporate mandate, a new attraction is created to re-spark visitor's interest, which backfires horribly. The ensemble cast includes Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Vincent D'Onofrio, Irrfan Khan, Ty Simpkins, Nick Robinson, Omar Sy, Jake Johnson, Judy Greer and original Jurassic Park star B.D. Wong.

Steven Spielberg returns to executive produce the long-awaited next installment of his groundbreaking Jurassic Park series, Jurassic World. Colin Trevorrow directs the epic action-adventure based on the novel "Jurassic Park" by Michael Crichton. The screenplay is by Rick Jaffa & Amanda Silver and Trevorrow & Derek Connolly. Frank Marshall and Patrick Crowley join the team as producers. Take a look at the new TV spot below, and stay tuned for more footage as we get closer to Jurassic World's release date.

Jurassic World comes to theaters June 12th, 2015 and stars Ty Simpkins, Bryce Dallas Howard, Nick Robinson, Chris Pratt, Vincent D'Onofrio, Irrfan Khan, B.D. Wong, Omar Sy. The film is directed by Colin Trevorrow.

'Suicide Squad': Scott Eastwood & Ray Olubowale Join Cast in Unknown Roles

Hollywood News from MovieWeb - 10 hours 24 min ago

With production scheduled to start up next month in Toronto on Suicide Squad, eTalk CTV and The Toronto Sun are reporting that actors Scott Eastwood and Ray Olubowale have joined the cast. No details were given in regards to what characters they may be playing, but there are rumors that Ray Olubowale is playing King Shark, but that has not been confirmed. Hopefully we'll get confirmation about who they are playing as we get closer to production starting up.

The actors join a growing cast that includes Will Smith (Deadshot), Margot Robbie (Harley Quinn), Jared Leto (The Joker), Jai Courtney (Boomerang), Joel Kinnaman (Rick Flagg), Cara Delevingne (Enchantress) and Viola Davis (Amanda Waller). No story details have been confirmed at this time, but hopefully we'll get an official synopsis when production begins on director David Ayer's comic book adaptation. Scott Eastwood last starred in David Ayer's Fury, and he will next be seen in The Longest Ride and Snowden. Ray Olubowale, a former Canadian boxing champion, has starred in Resident Evil: Afterlife and Resident Evil: Retribution.

In related news, Entertainment Tonight recently spoke with Viola Davis, who was asked which of her characters is more of a badass, Amanda Waller or How to Get Away with Murder's Annalise Keating. Here's what she had to say below.

"You know what that's a tough one, but I would give it to Amanda Waller. I've been doing my research on Amanda Waller and I'm a little scared because she's really unapologetic. I mean seriously, it's beyond 'she don't play'. She's on the right side of the law, but really she should probably be at Rikers Island - that's just my opinion, Amanda!"

#Breaking - @ScottEastwood confirms to #etalk he's been in Toronto working on #SuicideSquad. More to come tomorrow.

Suicide Squad comes to theaters August 5th, 2016 and stars Will Smith, Margot Robbie, Jared Leto, Jai Courtney, Joel Kinnaman, Cara Delevingne, Viola Davis, Jay Hernandez. The film is directed by David Ayer.

New Jurassic World TV Spot Arrives


Chances are you will already have seen a trailer or two from Jurassic World, and this new TV spot doesn’t offer a lot of footage that is fresh. But there are a few snippets to be found, so if you’ve been binging on promos, go nuts. If you’re trying to stay pure and abstain, go elsewhere…

Jurassic World finds John Hammond’s dream of a fully functioning dino-park realised thanks to a massive conglomerate that has stepped into, injected a T-Rex-sized load of dosh and gotten the place up and running under the smooth business aegis of Bryce Dallas Howard’s Claire. By now, things are operating smoothly, with attractions galore and tourist hotspots all around. But as time has gone on, even the biggest and baddest dino displays have become seen as a tad passé. So, in an attempt to drum up fresh interest, Claire and the other executives have given the thumbs up to a particularly smart dinosaur called Indominus Rex. One that doesn’t really understand its place in the world and that has already made a quick lunch of the twin born alongside it.

And because this is a Jurassic Park film, it’s not long before the screaming starts, and animal behavioural specialist/all-round big damn hero Owen Grady (Chris Pratt) – who voiced concerns about the new baby – is tasked with trying to stop the new menace as she stomps across the theme resort like an out of control toddler with much more dangerous teeth. 

With Colin Trevorrow calling the shots and Irrfan Khan, Omar Sy, Nick Robinson, Ty Simpkins, Vincent D’Onofrio, BD Wong, Jake Johnson and Judy Greer in the cast, Jurassic World is out on June 12.
