What a great day for dinosaurs who refuse to die! First a new ‘Jurassic Park’ trailer and now, via Variety, a report on the sequel to ‘Blade Runner,’ which has been rumored for most of the 30 years, since Ridley Scott released the original film back in 1982. Scott says that, yes, you can expect Harrison Ford to return as detective Rick Deckard, but no, you shouldn’t expect Scott to direct the film; instead he’ll just be serving as a producer

Ever-increasing as demand for Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman becomes, ‘Sherlock’ fans well-know that the gap between series can be murder.

Fans of Nickelodeon’s ‘The Legend of Korra’ well know the hearbreak of Book 4: Balance, which followed Book 3's exile to online premieres, and only weeks after the finale. And where last week brought the revelation that a slashed budget had forced creators Bryan Konietzko and Mike DiMartino into a clip show episode, there may yet be good news for fans. ‘The Legend of Korra’ will soon make a return to TV, albeit not exactly in the way we might hope.

After the November 17 New York City premiere of ‘Selma’—the new Martin Luther King, Jr. biopic that details his time during the Selma, Alabama civil rights marches—the film’s cinematographer, Bradford Young, speaking to the audience after, made a reference to this film being about today as much as it’s about 1964. While doing so, Bradford, who is an extremely passionate man, evoked images from what we all saw out of Ferguson, Missouri this past August. He then spoke emotionally about his job and his life and his family:

‘Doctor Who’ must seemingly always contend with rumors of its current cast departing, and though Peter Capaldi has been confirmed at least for a second year as the regenerating Time Lord, less certain is the fate of Jenna Coleman’s Clara. Certainly not helping matters is the official title for the 2014 Christmas special, which along with a new poster, teases that someone will be having their “Last Christmas!”

by Mike Sampson 3 days ago
“You just went and made a new dinosaur? Probably not a good idea.” And, there’s the ‘Jurassic Park 4’ trailer summed up for you in pretty much one exchange. While the previous ‘Jurassic Park’ films dealt with the folly of John Hammond’s original plans for the park, this new film imagines a world where Jurassic Park is now up and running. The kinks have been worked out. Raptors are trained. But, people are still people and that means they do really stupid things. Like create massive “hybrid” dinosaurs to goose attendance at their park.

Disney’s animated ‘Star Wars Rebels’ series has garnered plenty of acclaim in only its first few episodes, exploring a previously-untapped era of the franchise and seemingly setting up a few major ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ plot points, but could Lucasfilm be planning an even bigger animated tie-in? A new rumor suggests ‘Rebels’ could eventually be supplanted by a new animated series, one explicitly set in the era of the newest ‘Star Wars’ movies.

EDIT
by Kate Erbland 3 days ago
John Goodman has hosted ‘Saturday Night Live’ a lot—13 times, to be precise—and the veteran actor has seen plenty of sketches come and go, including a few that probably just couldn’t be salvaged (even if they did star Will Ferrell and/or a bunch of very expensive chairs). On last night’s ‘Late Night,’ Goodman shared some of his very favorites with host (and former ‘SNL’ co-writer) Seth Myers.
