The Magnificent Seven Teaser Trailer

It’s been quite a while since we first heard rumors about actors like Tom Cruise and Matt Damon, Morgan Freeman, and Kevin Costner starring in a remake of the 1960 western classic The Magnificent Seven for MGM. None of those rumors played out, but the remake still moved forward, and, as promised when we saw the first official images yesterday, a trailer for the movie has been released today.

Though it is technically a teaser trailer, our first look at the movie still runs over two minutes in length and shows plenty of footage. Click on over to the other side to check it out.

Magnificent Seven image 04

Last week, CinemaCon attendees were treated to the first look at the Antoine Fuqua-directed remake of The Magnificent Seven. The original film was released back in 1960, and starred Yul Brynner, Steve McQueen, Charles Bronson, Eli Wallach, and James Coburn. Such legendary actors gathering together for a great film, its reimagining would at least have to match that all-star caliber. And as such, it was announced that Denzel Washington, Chris Pratt, Ethan Hawke, Vincent D’Onofrio, and Byung-hun Lee would be starring in the film. With names like that, it looks like they got the job done on paper at least.

Now Sony has released the first official set of images of the cast in their western getups, and plans on releasing the first trailer tomorrow. Check out the images below.

Jurassic World

When the Jurassic Park franchise was officially revived with the release of Jurassic World last month, it immediately made a huge impact by scoring $208.8 million to start things off, beating The Avengers‘ opening weekend record of $207.4. Something Marvel was cool enough to tip their hat to with a congratulatory message.

Now it appears another congratulations from Marvel is in order. It’s being reported that Jurassic World has now leapfrogged The Avengers once again, this time to take the number three all-time highest grossing movie worldwide spot. The movie has made $1.522 billion, passing the former number three’s $1.520 billion. The only two movies ahead of it now are James Cameron’s Titanic, which made almost $2.2 billion worldwide, and Cameron’s Avatar, which made almost $2.8 billion. Two other movies from this year have also made it into the top ten all-time worldwide: Furious 7 with $1.5 billion, and Avengers: Age of Ultron with $1.4 billion.

Vincent D'Onofrio in Jurassic World

Set 22 years after the events of Jurassic Park, Colin Trevorrow‘s Jurassic World sees the dinosaur theme park fully restored and operational. But even with its success, the park needs to find ways to attract new visitors, and at InGen’s request, the science team created the Indominus Rex, a fearsome hybrid dinosaur that grows beyond InGen’s control. Now, it is up to Owen Grady (Chris Pratt), a raptor whisperer, Claire (Bryce Dallas Howard), the park’s CEO, and the island’s private security force to stop the monstrous creation before she can cause more damage.

In the film, Vincent D’Onofrio plays Vic Hoskins, the leader of Jurassic World’s private security force, who is also trying to utilize the park’s dinosaurs for military purposes. We had the opportunity to talk to D’Onofrio over the phone about the film, his character, and working with director Colin Trevorrow. We also had a chance to reminisce about working with Rick Baker on the set of Men in Black, and were reminded about Marvel’s code of silence.

Check out the full interview below.

Jurassic World Movie Review

Jurassic World
Director: Colin Trevorrow
Writers: Rick Jaffa, Amanda Silver, Derek Connolly, Colin Trevorrow
Cast: Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Vincent D’Onofrio, Ty Simpkins, Nick Robinson, Omar Sy, B. D. Wong, Irrfan Khan
Universal Pictures
Rated PG-13 | 124 Minutes
Release Date: June 12, 2015

“Your scientists were so preoccupied with whether or not they could that they didn’t stop to think if they should.”

That line of dialogue, delivered by Jeff Goldblum as Dr. Ian Malcolm, reveals one of the key themes of Steven Spielberg’s Jurassic Park. Just because humans find the capability to do something – like build an atomic bomb or clone a prehistoric predator – doesn’t mean they should, especially if hubris and greed motivate that act of discovery.

The “lunch debate” scene between Malcolm – a scientist – and venture capitalist John Hammond (Richard Attenborough) defines the central conflict of the 1993 film. It’s also a great metaphor for what Universal Pictures has done with their Jurassic Park franchise. Just because you can make more sequels, doesn’t mean you should. Some things are better left in the past.

Enter Jurassic World, the fourth entry in Universal’s dino-driven franchise. Co-written and directed by Colin Trevorrow (Safety Not Guaranteed), Jurassic World picks up 22 years after the events of the original film. Situated on Isla Nublar, the island from the original film, Jurassic World is a fully operational, state-of-the-art theme park with astonishing biological attractions. Dinosaurs. We’re talking about freaking dinosaurs here, guys.

The luxury resort has been a tourist destination for years, with tens of thousands of guests traveling from all over the world to see these living, breathing prehistoric creatures up close. Kids ride baby Triceratops in a petting zoo while crowds cheer as the massive Mosasaurus leaps from a SeaWorld-style performance pool to devour a great white shark suspended in mid-air.

‘The Walking Dead’s Jon Bernthal Is Punisher In ‘Daredevil’ Season 2

Jon Bernthal, The Punisher

Rumors swirled last week that The Punisher may appear in season 2 of Daredevil. This was an exciting opportunity to bring in a Marvel anti-hero that failed to see any success theatrically. But the character doesn’t come without difficulties to bring to the small screen, because the anti-hero employs murder, kidnapping, extortion, coercion, threats of violence, and torture in his war on crime.

However it looks like Marvel and Daredevil showrunners Doug Petrie and Marco Ramirez will be up to the task, as it has been confirmed that Punisher will appear in season 2, and that The Walking Dead star Jon Bernthal will play him. More on the story below.

Jurassic World director Colin Trevorrow

Colin Trevorrow is going to be a name you’ll be hearing a lot more of in the coming years. Though the filmmaker does have a few directing credits to his name, he got his first major recognition for his Sundance comedy hit, Safety [Not Guaranteed]. After that, he made the leap from small indie film to Jurassic World, starring Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Vincent D’Onofrio, and more. The film, which takes place 22 years after the events of Jurassic Park, sees a fully functioning park complete with rides, interactive experiences, and family friendly shows. But behind the scenes, there is a villainous plan that will put the park and everyone in it, in real danger.

We were given a special phone interview with director Colin Trevorrow, where we got to talk about Jurassic World, making that jump from an indie film to a major blockbuster, the threat that social media and internet blogging leaks present to a film production, practical effects vs CG, Star Wars, and much more.

Check out the interview below.

Peter Sarsgaard

MGM has found their primary villain for the upcoming remake of The Magnificent Seven, which already features a great cast consisting of Denzel Washington (Glory, American Gangster), Ethan Hawke (Before Sunset, Boyhood), Chris Pratt (Guardians of the Galaxy, Jurassic World), Vincent D’Onofrio (Men In Black, Daredevil), Wagner Moura (Elysium, Elite Squad), Haley Bennett (Marley & Me, The Equalizer), and Matt Bomer (White Collar, Magic Mike).

The studio has chosen Peter Sarsgaard to be the film’s biggest bad guy, a robber baron named Bartholomew Bogue. But while they’ve found their primary antagonist, the movie is also losing a villain. Game of Thrones and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice star Jason Momoa was also recently reported to be in negotiations for a role, but now it’s being said that the actor is no longer attached to the project. Whether his duties playing Aquaman conflicted with the shooting schedule, he simply decided he didn’t want the role, or something else caused the departure is not known for sure at the moment.

‘Jurassic World’ Will Be A Direct Sequel To The Original, According To Colin Trevorrow

BAADASSSSS!   |

Jurassic World Chris Pratt

Jurassic World is shaping up to be one of this summer’s most promising big-screen blockbusters, but how exactly will the fourth installment in the franchise birthed by Steven Spielberg‘s groundbreaking 1993 smash dinosaur adventure Jurassic Park address the events of the lackluster (but fun in their own way) sequels The Lost World: Jurassic Park (1997) and Jurassic Park III (2001)? Short answer: it won’t.

According to a recent interview with Yahoo! Movies, Jurassic World director Colin Trevorrow claims that his entry in the series won’t acknowledge the second and third movies. In the world of Jurassic World, they never even happened.
