There’s been a ton of fun movie and TV news in the past few days, so I’ll just lay it all out for you.
‘Jurassic World’ Trailer and Website
Aside from pretty good Super Bowl spot (above) that centered around the new dinosaur created for the park (oh humans, when will we learn?!), the ‘Jurassic World’ website went live the other day. No, no, no: I mean the site for the fictional park. Take the time to look through it as it displays island temperature, ride wait times, live feeds, group rates (aka links you out to Fandango), and more. It’s pretty impressive. Check it out HERE.
The park is open on June 12th, 2015.
Felicity Jones Cast in ‘Star Wars’
Ms. Jones, like Hansel, is so hot right now. She’s potentially on her way to becoming Black Cat in Sony’s messy ‘The Amazing Spider-Man’ series, earned an Oscar nomination for her incredible work in ‘The Theory of Everything’, and now has been cast as the lead in Gareth Edward’s ‘Star Wars’ spin-off. I personally love this move, as Jones has shown what a great presence she has on screen. The idea of a female leading the charge in a ‘Star Wars’ film is potentially great. Even with the likes of ‘The Hunger Games’ and other current high grossing female-centric action adventure films, we need genuinely need more. First we have an African-American start of ‘The Force Awakens’ and now a female ‘Star Wars’ lead. Good on Disney for making thing happen! Princess Leia is such a bad ass hero for girls (and boys) to look up to, so hopefully Jones’ character will follow in her bunned-hair filled shoes. So far, Disney hasn’t disappointed in casting our new “Galaxy Far, Far Away.”
The first ‘Star Wars’ spin off will tentatively be released in December of 2016.
First Image of Brandon Routh in A.T.O.M. Gear
The CW’s ‘Arrow’ is getting a new hero! Below is our first look at Brandon Routh in his tech gear. In the comics, The Atom can shrink down to a teeny tiny size to fight crime. I’m digging the outfit and wonder if the clear face shield will contain some sort of digital dashbard ala Iron Man. If anything, it could obscure his face for his identity hiding needs. Since the CW’s ‘The Flash’ has been doing so well (for good reason), giving Ray Palmer (Brandon Routh) his own A.T.O.M. show has been discussed. Regardless of whether ‘Arrow’ creates another superhero spin-off, I’m looking forward to a triple team up of DC heroes in some crossover form on the CW.
Palmer is THE ATOM in this season of ‘Arrow’.
New ‘Minions’ Trailer
‘Minions’ will be released this July.
Keep on Watchin’!
