Jeff Goldblum Returns as Dr. Ian Malcolm in New 'Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom' Teaser Featurette

Jeff Goldblum Returns as Dr. Ian Malcolm in New 'Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom' Teaser Featurette
The hotly anticipated sequel Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom is bringing back one of the franchise's most-beloved characters.

In a newly-released featurette – which drops quite a few tantalizing hints and exciting teases regarding the upcoming dino-fighting epic – fans get a sneak peek at the return of Jeff Goldblum's iconic scientist-turned-reluctant adventurer, Ian Malcolm.

While the glimpse at Goldblum is brief, it's endlessly exciting for fans of the original Jurassic Park and its sequel, who have been dying to see the celebrated character come back to the franchise.

The good doctor has clearly aged well and matured since we last saw him chasing a T-Rex through the streets of San Diego in the action-packed 1997 Jurassic Park sequel, The Lost World. He's traded in his black leather jacket for a crisp black suit, and he's grown out his salt-and-pepper beard, giving him the look of a distinguished professor.

Predator: 9 Unforgettable Moments from Alan Silvestri’s Soundtrack

With the Arnie classic enjoying a one-day re-release to mark its 30th anniversary, Sean Wilson unpacks the secrets of Predator’s genre-defining score…

It’s a very good time to be an Alan Silvestri fan at the moment. Not only is the veteran Back to the Future composer assigned to both Steven Spielberg’s Ready Player One and Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War (both released next year), but one of his pivotal soundtracks is now back in the spotlight.

Composed in 1987 Predator remains one of the defining moments of Silvestri’s career, not to mention one of the most memorable soundtracks for an Arnold Schwarzenegger movie. The film itself, currently enjoying a one-day re-release to mark its 30th anniversary, needs little introduction: an unfeasibly macho, jungle-based thriller about a group of highly skilled military operatives who are picked off one by one by a camouflaged alien killer from another world.

When hackers infiltrated Jurassic Park: The Lost World's website

Paul Bullock Nov 13, 2017

The website for Jurassic Park: The Lost World remains online - and it was once hacked, and made more, er, 'duck-focused'....

For a brief moment in May 1997, Universal Pictures was promoting a major blockbuster about ducks. With the internet growing into the vital marketing tool it’s become today, the studio pushed its financial might behind the online sphere, creating a comprehensive, immersive and interactive site for the sequel to one of its biggest hits. However, just after The Lost World: Jurassic Park was released, something went badly wrong.

“They're quacked,” reads a CNN article dated May 28th 1997 and brilliantly titled Hackers fowl Up Lost World Site. “The dinosaurs of The Lost World were no match for hackers who broke into their Web site and with a stroke of a key changed the film's name to The Duck World: Jurassic Pond."

What Jeff Goldblum's Dr. Ian Malcolm Is Doing in Jurassic World 2

Jurassic World 2 has already wrapped production and the movie is scheduled to arrive next year. The first movie didn't rely heavily on classic characters from the franchise, instead opting to introduce us to new characters, like Chris Pratt's Owen and Bryce Dallas Howard's Claire. But that's not going to be the case with the sequel, as Jeff Goldblum is set to return as Dr. Ian Malcolm. Though he can't talk much about it, Goldblum has teased a bit of what his role in the movie is going to be.

Jeff Goldblum is currently promoting the upcoming release of Thor: Ragnarok, which hits theaters on November 3. While making the press rounds, he was asked about his role in Jurassic World 2, officially titled Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom. He revealed, in his own cagey way, that Ian Malcolm is going to "have something to say" about the events of Jurassic World and the "misuse of technology.

Fan Creates ‘Jurassic Park’ Sequel We All Would Have Paid To See

We don’t usually post that many fan trailers here on the site, but we thought we’d make an exception for this one. A hugely talented fan has put the following trailer together for a potential Jurassic Park II using footage from the original 1993 movie and what looks to be some from the Bruce Willis-led Tears Of The Sun, his hugely under-rated 2003 movie, directed by Antoine Fuqua. Watch the Jurassic Park 2 fan trailer in the player at the bottom of the post.

Pitched at what appears to be Jurassic Park by way of Predator, the trailer alludes to a film we’d certainly stand in line to see.

Of course, back in 1997 we were ‘treated’ to a very lackluster sequel to Steven Spielberg’s 1993 original, adapted from the source material by Michael Crichton. The Lost World: Jurassic Park, far from set the world on alight, even though it

Top Ten Movie Franchises Based on Books

  • Cinelinx
For as long as there have been movies, there have been movies based on books. This is a look at the best movie franchises that are either based on a book or several books.

It’s one thing to have a movie that is based on a book. It happens all the time. It’s more rare to have an entire franchise of films based on a book or set of books. Over the last two decades, it seems like we have been seeing more and more franchises emerge that are based on books. This seems to be happening for a few reasons. First, Hollywood is more than ever looking for established properties on which to base films. Book, have been and always will be one of the best established properties for a movie to be based upon. Second, if the books have a big following, chances are that the

Kong: Skull Island 3-D

Kong is back, transformed into a ‘MonsteVerse’ colossus suitable for combat with Kaiju-sized foes. The key inspiration is video games but the day is saved by capable performers in mostly amusing roles. Even though the show treats its fantasy halfway seriously, it’s still an infantile guns ‘n’ monsters romp, embellished with impressive visual effects.

In Defense Of: “The Lost World: Jurassic Park” (1997)

Full disclosure: Jurassic Park is my favorite movie. Always has been, always will be. I was born in 1989, and though I grew up on a steady cinematic diet of the usual staples like Star Wars and Indiana Jones, I was, essentially, late to the party. I wasn’t there in 1977 when the world was first taken back a long time ago to a galaxy far, far away. I wasn’t there in 1981 when audiences first met Indy, or in 1982 when a young boy became best friends with a stranded extraterrestrial, or in 1985 when Marty McFly traveled back to 1955. These were the types of stories I grew up on, love, and cherish, of course, but it wasn’t until 1993 that I had the chance to be present as a film became something else, transcending into a cultural event of its own.

What Does Jurassic World 2 Need to Do to Improve on its Predecessor?

Universal Pictures recently confirmed that the eagerly anticipated follow-up to 2015’s hugely successful Jurassic World, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom would be hitting cinema screens on June 22, 2018. The hype wheels are already in motion and there have been some major revelations, such as Jeff Goldblum’s return to the franchise as Ian Malcolm. Goldblum was the star of Jurassic Park and The Lost World, and his reappearance will surely appease nostalgic fans. With Jurassic World raking in over $1.6 billion worldwide and holding the status of the fourth-highest grossing film of all time, what can the follow-up from director J. A. Bayona do to improve on the popular reboot of the franchise?

Although Jurassic World was hugely successful commercially, it received mixed reviews. It only managed to achieve a painfully average score of 72% on Rotten Tomatoes, and according to Mark Kermode of the Guardian who awarded it 3/5 stars, the film lacked any bite or a palpable plot.

Money Is the Devil: Church Satirized in Enjoyable Early Lubitsch Comedy with Premise Similar to Keaton Classic

Money Is the Devil: Church Satirized in Enjoyable Early Lubitsch Comedy with Premise Similar to Keaton Classic
'The Doll' with Ossi Oswalda and Hermann Thimig: Early Ernst Lubitsch satirical fantasy starring 'the German Mary Pickford' has similar premise to that of the 1925 Buster Keaton comedy 'Seven Chances.' 'The Doll': San Francisco Silent Film Festival presented fast-paced Ernst Lubitsch comedy starring the German Mary PickfordOssi Oswalda Directed by Ernst Lubitsch (So This Is Paris, The Wedding March), the 2017 San Francisco Silent Film Festival presentation The Doll / Die Puppe (1919) has one of the most amusing mise-en-scènes ever recorded. The set is created by cut-out figures that gradually come to life; then even more cleverly, they commence the fast-paced action. It all begins when a shy, confirmed bachelor, Lancelot (Hermann Thimig), is ordered by his rich uncle (Max Kronert), the Baron von Chanterelle, to marry for a large sum of money. As to be expected, mayhem ensues. Lancelot is forced to flee from the hordes of eligible maidens, eventually

Remembering Forgotten Early Female Documentarian and That Talkies Began Long Before 'The Jazz Singer'

'Amazing Tales from the Archives': Pioneering female documentarian Aloha Wanderwell Baker remembered at the San Francisco Silent Film Festival – along with the largely forgotten sound-on-cylinder technology and the Jean Desmet Collection. 'Amazing Tales from the Archives': San Francisco Silent Film Festival & the 'sound-on-cylinder' system Fans of the earliest sound films would have enjoyed the first presentation at the 2017 San Francisco Silent Film Festival, held June 1–4: “Amazing Tales from the Archives,” during which Library of Congress' Nitrate Film Vault Manager George Willeman used a wealth of enjoyable film clips to examine the Thomas Edison Kinetophone process. In the years 1913–1914, long before The Jazz Singer and Warner Bros.' sound-on-disc technology, the sound-on-cylinder system invaded the nascent film industry with a collection of “talkies.” The sound was scratchy and muffled, but “recognizable.” Notably, this system focused on dialogue, rather than music or sound effects. As with the making of other recordings at the time, the

NYC Weekend Watch: Ozu, Peter Nestler, ‘Monterey Pop,’ Bertrand Tavernier & More

Since any New York City cinephile has a nearly suffocating wealth of theatrical options, we figured it’d be best to compile some of the more worthwhile repertory showings into one handy list. Displayed below are a few of the city’s most reliable theaters and links to screenings of their weekend offerings — films you’re not likely to see in a theater again anytime soon, and many of which are, also, on 35mm. If you have a chance to attend any of these, we’re of the mind that it’s time extremely well-spent.

Metrograph

The best of Ozu in one series.

Films by members of Magnum Photos will screen, as does Alan Clarke’s Rita, Sue and Bob Too.

Museum of the Moving Image

The Spielberg series screens three underseen, rediscovery-ready titles this weekend.

Film Society of Lincoln Center

Largely unseen, the films of Peter Nestler, a key figure in post-war German cinema, are being given their due in a new series.

Nitehawk Cinema

Midnight brings the restored Monterey Pop, Street Trash, and The Holy Mountain.

The Blues Brothers (with pre-show performance) and The Lost World screen before noon.

Quad Cinema

The films made and loved by Bertrand Tavernier are screening.

Funeral Parade of Roses continues its run.

Museum of Modern Art

The Philippine series continues running, including two films by Lav Diaz.

IFC Center

Midnight brings To Live and Die in L.A., The Thing, The Italian Job, and Taxi Driver.

During the day, Stalker, No Country for Old Men, and Monterey Pop are offered.

Jurassic World Sequel Unveils the First Poster and Official Title

Hold onto your butts, people, because another Jurassic World is on the way. The sequel, which will be titled Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, is still a year away, but a few bits and pieces of information about it have made their way to the public - including the first poster! By all accounts, it sounds like the film is moving in the right direction (i.e. scarier and more suspenseful). Fingers crossed they let Bryce Dallas Howard put on some sneakers this time around. The Director J.A. Bayona, who directed A Monster Calls and The Impossible, will take the reins from Colin Trevorrow. Despite leaving to direct Star Wars: Episode IX, Trevorrow is staying on board to help out as an executive producer. In an interview with Jurassic Outpost, he touched on the collaborative environment he's fostered with Bayona. "I've been here, I'm in the office right now," he said. "I've been here every day since July working closely with J.A., listening to his instincts and honing the script with Derek [Connolly] to make sure it's something that all of us believe in." The Cast The sequel will see a very familiar face from the two original movies: Dr. Ian Malcolm! Jeff Goldblum is on board to reprise his role as the know-it-all mathematician, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Jurassic Park alum Bd Wong also confirmed his return to the series by sharing an Instagram of himself at Pinewood Studios with a raptor in February. So far the only official returning cast members from Jurassic World are Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard, who will reprise their roles as Owen and Claire. Trevorrow appeared on the Jurassic Cast podcast in September 2015 to discuss his plans for the sequel, which included details of how he sees Owen and Claire evolving throughout the next two films. "Owen is going to be in it, Claire is in it, and neither are going to be in the same place we left them in the first movie. And even though Claire is the one who evolves the most over the trilogy, it's her story that mirrors this changing world. Owen has sh*t to deal with. They've both opened Pandora's Box in Jurassic World and both of them are responsible for different elements of it." The rest of the cast includes an equal balance of Hollywood legends and newcomers, like James Cromwell, Toby Jones, Justice Smith, and Daniella Pineda. The Plot If you're worried about seeing another dinosaur-chasing-people-around-on-an-island movie, don't be. Trevorrow said that he thinks "the general audience [is] going to be down to explore where else we can go." Does that mean we're going to see another T. rex on the loose in San Diego, like in The Lost World? Although we'll have to wait and see, we do know one thing: it's going to leave us shaken. "It will be more suspenseful and scary," Trevorrow added. "And that's just the way it's designed, it's the way the story plays out. I knew I wanted Bayona to direct it long before anyone heard that was a possibility so the whole thing was just built around his skillset." The First Picture Walking in giant footsteps. #JW2 pic.twitter.com/fOZrFXp9md - Colin Trevorrow (@colintrevorrow) March 8, 2017 Producer Trevorrow shared this sneak peek on Twitter in March. The First Poster The new poster for the upcoming film debuted in June and includes the tag line: "Life finds a way" - aka Goldblum's famous line from the original film. The Release Date The film is slated to hit theaters on June 22, 2018.

Jurassic World 2 Gets an Official Title

  • Cinelinx
Exactly one year away from the release of J.A. Bayona's sequel to Jurassic World, Universal has given fans a countdown treat with a teaser poster that officially reveals the film's title.  Come inside to check it out!

As filming started up this week in Hawaii (the last phase of filming) on Jurassic World 2, producer Frank Marshall teased fans with a big announcement coming soon.  Today, which marks the one year point from the film's release in 2018, we got something special. 

It's a teaser poster evocative of all the others in the long running franchise, but the kicker is getting an official title.  Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom is what they're going with, which feels fittingly similar to Jurassic Park: The Lost World (the sequel to the original film).  That's a pretty big announcement in and of itself, and with filming still underway, that's likely all we'll get for a while.  Even so, that offers plenty to speculate on.  

What do you think of the new title?  Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom hits theaters on June 22, 2018.

Sfsff: Amazing Tales of the Archives

Sfsff 2017 featured films by or with Paul Robeson, Sergei Eisenstein, Ossi Oswalda, Clara Bow, Priscilla Dean, Lon Chaney, Douglas Fairbanks, Harold Lloyd, Bessie Love, Lloyd Hughes, Wallace Beery, and The Lost World dinosaurs. Amazing Tales of the Archives Fans of the earliest sound films would enjoy the first presentation at this year's Amazing Tales Of The Archives. George Willeman examined the Thomas Edison Kinetophone process with a wealth of enjoyable film clips. Between 1913-1914, sound-on-cylinder invaded the nascent film industry with a collection of “talkies”. The sound was scratchy and muffled, but recognizable. It was notable that this effort focused on dialog rather than music or sound effects. As with making other recordings at the time, the technology was acoustic. The actors needed to stand perfectly still and shout into horns suspended overhead to make their voices record on a wax cylinder, which played back when the film was shown. As expected, the device was plagued by many synchronization errors. I can only imagine the effect this distorted sound had on the audience. Next up was a look at The Desmet Collection from 1907-1916 from The Netherlands. Film collector, Jean Desmet (1875-1956), managed to save not only film but a wealth of posters, programs and other documents. I think this supports my theory that hoarding and saving are not always pathological. The last presentation I found the most inspiring. A female documentarian. In the 1920's, Aloha Wanderwell Baker (1906-1996) practically circled the globe documenting people and places from Turkey to Africa to China. Photos from the era showed her roughing it on airplanes, boats, and caravans, much to the amusement of the locals. Her enthusiasm for film and social anthropology made itself evident by the fact that she was still reminiscing about her travelogs when she was in her 80's.

Goldblum's Jurassic World 2 Dialogue Is Pulled from Jurassic Park Book

Goldblum's Jurassic World 2 Dialogue Is Pulled from Jurassic Park Book
It was announced earlier this year that Jeff Goldblum will officially be reprising his role as Ian Malcolm in Jurassic World 2, and it has now been revealed that his dialogue will be taken straight from Michael Crichton's original Jurassic Park novel. The first Jurassic Park movie came out 25 years ago and it was widely known that it was based off of Crichton's novel of the same name, but that fact seems to have faded over time for younger generations getting into the new series. Crichton also wrote the sequel The Lost World, but as with most projects based on novels, the movies of both books changed quite a bit, angering some fans of the books.

Colin Trevorrow's Jurassic World pretty much ignored the previous movies in the franchise, but he did bring back Dr. Henry Wu (B.D. Wong) and now we get to see the glorious return of

Fear The Walking Dead season 3 set report

Duncan Bowles May 26, 2017

Den Of Geek went to Mexico to spy on the filming of Fear The Walking Dead season 3 - here's what we saw...

Standing in the middle of a remote Mexican valley in Tijuana, only accessible by an ‘upgraded’ dirt track that threatened to dislodge both the production vans' wheels and maybe a few spines, I suddenly felt utterly vindicated from any time during an interview when I’d asked about location enhancing an actors’ performance. With rolling hills, quite literally as far as the eye could see, it was impossible not to be overwhelmed by the majestic beauty of the dusty, yet strangely fertile landscape, and that was before even setting eyes on the incredible work that production designer Bernardo Trujillo and his crew had integrated into a new setting for Fear The Walking Dead simply called ‘The Ranch’.

Jeff Goldblum Previews Ian Malcolm’s Return In Jurassic World 2

Soon after stepping in to the director’s chair left vacant by Colin Trevorrow (Star Wars: Episode IX), A Monster Calls and The Impossible helmer Juan Antonio Bayona hinted that Jurassic World 2, Universal’s blockbuster sequel due for release in 2018, will feature stronger ties to the ’93 classic.

It wasn’t until the casting of Jeff Goldblum that we began to form an understanding of that connective tissue in question, even if the finer details are being kept locked away in the vaults of InGen. What we do know is that Goldblum is back on board to reprise the role of Dr. Ian Malcolm, a smooth-talking mathematician who went on to become something of a cult hero among Jurassic Park fans – the .gifs of Goldblum’s cackle alone are proof of that status. Malcolm cropped up in the Jurassic Park universe four years later thanks to the launch of The Lost World,
