Cool news for fans of the Three Flavours Cornetto trilogy. Simon Pegg just announced on his Twitter that the release date for the upcoming final installment The World’s End has a new release date. And apparently it’s a better one! The film, originally set to be released in October of this year will now be released on August 23rd, 2013, giving it an “upgrade” to a Summer release. Simon also revealed that sometime soon, an official trailer for the film will be released.
We can’t wait! How about you guys? Are you fans of Shaun of the Dead or Hot Fuzz? I would see anything with Simon Pegg and Nick Frost so I am already getting amped up.
HUGE news Jurassic Park fans! Not only is the fourth movie actually and finally happening, but Universal has finally selected a director. Fans may have hoped that Steven Spielberg would be on board at some point but he won’t be directing this time around. While we will get him as an executive producer, newcomer Colin Trevorrow will be taking on the task. He previously directed the indie hit Safety Not Guaranteed. This is a huge development. The script has already been completed and shooting is set to allegedly begin this Summer with the hopes for a Summer 2014 release. As in next year! If that’s not enough excitement for you, don’t forget that you’ll be able to catch the first Jurassic Park movie when it’s re-released in 3D starting April 5th.
I can’t wait to go see it at least 10 times.
Can you believe how long it’s been since Monsters, Inc. was first released? I feel so old! Disney/Pixar brings us an all new movie, Monsters University, a prequel to the original. Billy Crystal and John Goodman reprise their roles as Mike and Sulley in the new film that focuses on their rivalry during their college years at the University of Fear training to scare children. Sounds like a fun school to me.
Check out the new full UK trailer for the movie here:
Adele has been confirmed to be singing the theme song to the upcoming Bond film Skyfall. Previous singers for the iconic theme songs have included Paul McCartney, Alicia Keys, Tom Jones, Shirley Bassey, and Louis Armstrong. Skyfall is set for release October 26th.
I love James Bond. He’s like what I imagine the love child of Chuck Norris and Macgyver would be. He could probably kick ass with a high pressure hydraulic hose and a toothbrush. Or ya know, just his golden gun.
Jurassic Park fans: Hold on to your butts. The biggest development update on the fourth installment in the hit franchise has been revealed. Steven Spielberg‘s producer, Frank Marshall, revealed that the movie should be on screens within two years, with the hopes that it will be a Summer blockbuster.
It has been long speculated whether the fourth movie would be an actual sequel or a reboot but Marshall confirmed that it will definitely be a sequel. In other fantastic news, there’s still hope that the movie won’t abandon its use of using Dinosaur puppets/robots instead of CGI.
I can’t tell you how happy this makes me or how long I’ve been waiting to hear this. The only update that could make this better is if Sam Neill and Jeff Goldblum and others from the old gang would confirm their appearance in the movie. Even seeing a grown up Timmy would be amazing.
Keep reading for what else Frank had to say:
During Steve’s interview with Marshall, he asked the producer for a status update on Jurassic Park 4, to which Marshall replied:
“I would say that it will be on the screen within two years.”
Marshall went on to reveal that they’re aiming for a summer release since it’s a “popcorn movie,” and confirmed that it’s definitely a sequel and not a reboot or remake. Spielberg confirmed earlier this year that he won’t be directing Jurassic Park 4, but he’s clearly heavily involved in the development of the film.
That’s not to say that the filmmakers will be completely abandoning the practical effects and prosthetic work that was put to great use in the earlier films. Marshall added that using practical dinosaurs not only feels real to the audience, but aids the actors in their performances.
If they are indeed looking at getting the film in front of screens within two years (which jibes with the timetable Spielberg laid out at last year’s Comic-Con), hopefully we’ll hear word about a director choice soon. There are a number of young, exciting filmmakers working today that could offer a fresh take on the franchise, and I’m eager to see who will take the reins.
