Jurassic World Screencap Gallery: Who’s Who And What’s What In The New Trailer

Yesterday Universal and Legendary Entertainment premiered the first full trailer for the much-anticipated Jurassic World. Directed by Colin Trevorrow (Safety Not Guaranteed), this latest Jurassic sequel picks up 20+ years after the disastrous events of the original Jurassic Park. And because we humans don’t like learning from our mistakes, a new incarnation of the dino-filled theme park is up and running and open to the public. Do we even have to tell you that things take a bad turn?

There’s a lot to see in the new trailer, so we went through with a fine-toothed comb made of prehistoric amber and will run down the highlights below. Where to start? Why, some kids destined to be recklessly endangered, of course! We get a brief shot of Judy Greer’s character sending the kids off on their journey to a dinosaur theme park with a history of disaster and carnage, because clearly: mother of the year.

Pacific Rim 2 Takes Place In A Very Different World But With These Two Familiar Faces

Pacific Rim 2Guillermo del Toro’s giant robots versus mega monsters sequel Pacific Rim 2 won’t hit theaters for a few more years, but that doesn’t mean we’re not hungry for details, though they do seem rather unimportant in the grand scheme of things. As long as massive mechs battle nasty creatures with the enthusiasm of a small child loudly smashing toys together on a playground, we’re 100% on board. The landscape of the second film will reportedly be quite different, though some key pieces will remain in play.

Talking to Collider while hyping up the impending Blu-ray release of The Strain, del Toro delivered a brief glimpse at what the world of Pacific Rim 2 will look like. In the wake of the first film, it’s a much more peaceful place, as after they closed the rift at the bottom of the ocean, the world’s giant monster problem went away. But then you have all of these skyscraper tall mechs to deal with, and what do you do with them?

Pretend To Be James Bond With This Laser Watch

laserwatchGerman inventor Patrick Priebe has just fulfilled many people’s dreams: he’s invented a gizmo that turns him into James Bond, at least for a little while. The guy actually made a working laser watch that blows stuff up (alas, it can’t make a martini, not yet anyway). I don’t think I need to state how cool that is.

Priebe has a substantial background for this sort of thing, and he has a company called Laser Gadgets, which does exactly what you’d think it does. There are a number of awesome devices on his site, including laser gloves, a pulse laser gun, a flame glove, and many more tools for your spy kit. Many of his mechanism are inspired by movie characters, such as Iron Man, Wolverine, and Spiderman. The disclaimers are also fantastic: “You understand ESD (Electrostatic Discharge) and the precautions necessary to prevent it!” “You will NEVER use this device outside or in front of crowds.” Aw…why ruin all the fun?

Battlestar Galactica Pitch Reel Brings Modern Effects To The ‘70s Cult Classic

Star Trek: The Original Series got a whole new lease on life back in 2006 when CBS kicked off a new syndicated run of the show featuring gorgeous high-definition remasters of the episodes and upgraded special effects. The results were, well, stellar, and gave fans the perfect excuse to rewatch the series, which would have looked like a million bucks if only they used money in the future. The trend has continued with the Blu-ray releases of The Next Generation, but there are still tons of older science fiction shows that could benefit from a high-def facelift. For instance, what would Glen A. Larson’s original cult classic Battlestar Galactica look like with effects work that looked more like it belonged in Ron Moore’s reboot? Well, probably a bit like this, actually:

Blade Runner 2 Will Have Much Less Ridley Scott And Harrison Ford Than You Expect

Blade RunnerMost, if not all of us have trouble with the idea of Blade Runner 2 happening. It’s been more than 30 years since Ridley Scott delivered one of the greatest sci-fi films of all time, and sequels that happen this far after the fact, well, lets just say they can be hit and miss. Still, it’s been in the works for years, especially the last few, and it is expected to shoot in 2015, but we just received word that two major parts may not play as major a role as we expected, as Scott and star Harrison Ford’s level of involvement just took a drastic nosedive.

Scott is on the publicity trail, stumping for his upcoming biblical epic, Exodus: Gods and Kings, and talking to Variety the subject of Blade Runner 2 came up. That is where he said he won’t direct the film. Though this is hardly surprising—with movies like The Martian, which is scheduled to begin filming later this year, and Prometheus 2 on the horizon, he’s going to be busy—it’s difficult to imagine anyone but Scott at the helm of a Blade Runner movie. Though James Cameron directed Aliens, the sequel to Scott’s 1979 classic Alien, and that turned out pretty well, so who knows.

The Walking Dead Episode That Robert Kirkman Regrets

the walking deadAs a steady viewer of The Walking Dead since its beginnings, I can come up with several storylines I wish I hadn’t spent time with. But I’ve never considered what parts of the series the creative team might regret showing audiences, as hindsight is rarely vocalized in the entertainment world. Robert Kirkman, creator of the Walking Dead comics, as well as a writer/producer on the show, says his biggest regret with AMC’s ratings beast goes all the way back to when Rick finds out the truth about the walkers at the end of Season 1.
