Ant-Man is not the coolest kid at the party that is the summer movie season. In fact, no one knows what to make of him. Sure, he’s related to Avengers: Age of Ultron, but he looks awfully weird and he supposedly has this dark and troubled past. So Ant-Man has to work a little harder to get noticed. He has to be seen by as many people as possible. He has to befriend one of the most popular kids in the room ... and you don’t get much more popular than Jurassic World.

Empire Magazine has a new and extremely detailed oral history of Jurassic World. This movie’s not even out in theaters yet! Remember when oral histories were things that happened 10 or 20 years after a movie came out? Not anymore.
The final trailer for Jurassic World takes on a more insidious tone, from the jarring piano score to the shot of baby Indominus Rex hatching interspersed with shots of relentless dino-violence. This is a park built on bad ideas, and Indominus Rex is the worst idea of them all. Welcome to Jurassic World, I guess?
Mondo, those purveyors of the coolest geek art on the planet, are teaming up with Universal for a new gallery show that will celebrate all things Jurassic Park. Yes, the timing of this show, so close to the release of Jurassic World, isn’t an accident. And yes, you should be excited for what Mondo has been cooking up. When you’re done humming John Williams’ iconic theme music, prepare yourself for an exclusive look at two very cool pieces from the show, as well as an interview with Mondo’s CEO and creative director, Justin Ishmael.
If early tracking is accurate, Jurassic World is going to make all of the money in the world when it opens next week. So yeah, of course buzz about a potential sequel has already begun swirling. Do you think Universal is going to wait 14 years between entries in this lucrative franchise again? However, don’t expect director Colin Trevorrow to return as he has made it clear he’s stepping away from the series following this entry.
It’s hardly shocking news that Chris Pratt is a big ol’ doofus. As Andy Dwyer on Parks and Recreation, Pratt showcased his comedic talents, playing a character that — judging by interviews — was basically a fictionalized, more simple-minded version of himself. Pratt may be exploring a more charismatic side of himself on the big screen right now, but these new behind the scenes featurettes from Jurassic World are here to assure you that he’s still as goofy as ever.
The latest extended spot for Jurassic World leans real heavily on your nostalgia, that muscle in your body that responds happily to things that remind you of other things you loved. Our old pal John Hammond (the late, great Sir Richard Attenborough) narrates, welcoming you to Jurassic World — and okay, that might be an easy way to get audiences to perk up, but it’s also just so nice to hear that voice again.
Ever since his breakout success in Guardians of the Galaxy, everybody wanted Chris Pratt for everything. The one-time Parks and Rec supporting player was suddenly being offered almost every leading man role in Hollywood. He signed on to star in Jurassic World, and in just a few short months he was rumored to be attached to both Indiana Jones and Ghostbusters reboots. Pratt has addressed those two rumors saying he knows nothing about either one.
The latest Jurassic World sneak peek might be the best and wackiest one yet — we’re definitely getting a sense that the sequel is going to crank things up to 11 on the ridiculous meter, and while it remains to be seen if that’s a good thing or a bad thing (I’m optimistic), we can probably all agree that an image of Indominus Rex running from an explosion puts anything Michael Bay’s ever done to shame.
Universal has revealed another new TV spot for Jurassic World, featuring a little bit of new footage from the upcoming sequel — most notably, a dinosaur petting zoo, where park attendees can interact with little, (allegedly) harmless dinosaurs. This whole place is teeming with bad ideas, although the worst is definitely that big bad hybrid dino, Indominus Rex.
