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

Hollywood News from MovieWeb - Mon, 30/03/2015 - 07:03

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 - Mon, 30/03/2015 - 07:00

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. pic.twitter.com/N53eRJL6NK

Simon Helberg Set For Florence Foster Jenkins

He's joining Stephen Frears' latest

Simon Helberg is probably best known at the moment for playing nerdy engineer Howard Wolowitz in sitcom The Big Bang Theory (or if you’re into deep geeky cuts, Moist from Dr. Horrible’s Sing-A-Long Blog). He’s had a few parts in movies, but it set for a bigger role in Stephen Frears’ new film, Florence Foster Jenkins, which will see the actor sharing the screen with Meryl Streep and Hugh Grant

The film will chronicle the life of Florence Foster Jenkins (Streep), an heiress and socialite whose driving passion was opera. Specifically, she wanted to get on stage and sing, but was held back by the fact that she could barely warble a correct note.

Yet while Florence was convinced that the voice she heard in her head was mellifluous and lovely to all, her partner/manager, aristocratic actor St. Clair Bayfield (Grant) became determined to protect that delusion, convincing everyone around them to support her. He ended up organising a Carnegie Hall concert for her in 1944, which racked up ticket sales of more than 3,000. Jenkins died a month later. Helberg is set as pianist Cosme McCoon, who accompanied her on stage.

Frears is getting set to direct the film with no release date set right now. Helberg last worked on romantic drama comedy We’ll Never Have Paris, which he co-wrote, produced and directed alongside his wife, Jocelyn Towne. For more on Florence, listen to Streep talking about it during a recent visit to the Empire Podcast
