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

Hollywood News from MovieWeb - 7 hours 11 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 - 7 hours 14 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. pic.twitter.com/N53eRJL6NK

'Deadpool' Website Launched, Synopsis Hints at 'X-Men' Connection

Hollywood News from MovieWeb - Sun, 29/03/2015 - 00:18

20th Century Fox's Deadpool is officially shooting, and so far we've gotten quite a lot from the production. Last week, Ryan Reynolds offered a look at the official movie logo, while co-star Morena Baccarin revealed her role as Vanessa Carlyle, aka Copycat. And T.J. Miller finally confirmed what has long been expected, that he is playing sidekick Weasel. Waisting no time, Reynolds then shared a first look at the full costume in a winking nod to Burt Reynolds' infamous nude bearskin rug photo from the April 1972 issue of Cosmopolitan Magazine. Now, 20th Century Fox has launched the official site and Twitter account for Deadpool.

To access the Official Deadpool Twitter Account: clickHere So far there is just one tweet, which is Reynolds in costume. The same can be seen at the Official Deadpool Website: clickHere This comes complete with the official logo and the synopsis. Reading this plot rundown carefully, you'll see that it subtly hints at an X-Men connection. Here is the synopsis:

Based upon Marvel Comics' most unconventional anti-hero, Deadpool tells the origin story of former Special Forces operative turned mercenary Wade Wilson, who after being subjected to a rogue experiment that leaves him with accelerated healing powers, adopts the alter ego Deadpool. Armed with his new abilities and a dark, twisted sense of humor, Deadpool hunts down the man who nearly destroyed his life.

ScreenRant was the first to ask who is 'the man who nearly destroyed his life'? And they may have an answer. As you probably know, Ed Skrein has been cast in what many presume to be the villain role. Though his character's identity has yet to be revealed, fan speculation heavily suggests that he is playing Garrison Kane, who, like Deadpool, was created for the comics by Fabian Nicieza and Rob Liefeld. Just like Wolverine and Deadpool, Kane was also part of the Weapon X program, which endowed the man with cybernetic arms. It's believed that the 'rogue experiment' mentioned in the synopsis is the same Weapon X project that gave Logan his adamantium skeleton and claws, as seen in previous movies. If this is indeed true, Deadpool certainly has a larger connection to the X-Men cinematic universe than first suspected. And the character may come into play in the upcoming X-Men movies X-Men: Apocalypse, Gambit and Wolverine 3.

If Deadpool's main plot involves Weapon X, that certainly sets things up for a Wolverine cameo from Hugh Jackman. Sadly, the actor declared he is only playing the character one last time. And we doubt it will be here, rather than Wolverine 3. Though, which movie will truly be his last has yet to be confirmed.

ScreenRant speculate that Deadpool could be setting up a new version of the Weapon X project, thanks to the altered timeline achieved in X-Men: Days of Future Past. If this is true, it would allow Fox to recast Wolverine, bringing a new actor into the mix. Again, none of this has been confirmed at this time, it's all just fan speculation. But it does give Fox an out in creating a new Wolverine mythos with a different actor, and it also allows for a reboot of 2009's X-Men Origins: Wolverine, which introduced Wade Wilson. So everything is explained away by the plot of X-Men: Days of Future Past once again. You can check out the new logo here:

Deadpool comes to theaters February 12th, 2016 and stars Ryan Reynolds, Gina Carano, Morena Baccarin, T.J. Miller, Ed Skrein. The film is directed by Tim Miller.
