Opening Today: “Jurassic World” (6/12/2015)

Twenty two years and a day after the theatrical opening for the film “Jurassic Park” that started this whole thing off comes the opening of the film “Jurassic World” in which we find a fully functional park with no real issues to be concerned about. Right? Right? Check out one of the cool posters for the film and the cast and then we can gab a little.

Brief (non-spoiler) Premise: 22 years after the failed opening of Jurassic Park on Isla Nublar, siblings Zach and Gray Mitchell take a Christmas vacation to Jurassic World, its fully functional dinosaur theme park successor, to visit their aunt Claire Dearing, the park operations manager. Upon arriving on the island, they find that Claire, having just finished an investor tour and scheduled for more meetings, is too busy to spend time with them and leaves them in the care of her assistant Zara. Simon Masrani, the park’s owner, arrives and takes Claire to see their new genetically modified dinosaur, the Indominus rex. Upon inspection, he tells her he wants Owen Grady, a Velociraptor expert and trainer, to make sure the enclosure is adequately secure.

The Trailer Is Here: “Jem and The Holograms” (2015)

Logo - Jem and The Holograms

I’m tossing this trailer onto the site for all of the wonderful ladies in our readership based on my remembering just how many girls I grew up with that absolutely loved the animated series “Jem and The Holograms”. When the series first aired in 1985, it seemed to inspire the female youth of the nation and was quite the success. The show came care of the same studios that gave us both “G.I. Joe” and “Transformers” which were regularly watched by this writer and while I never saw a single episode of Jem, I admired its art and how it had an impact on my female companion. Recently the trailer was released for the upcoming live action musical film and I’ve embedded it for you all to see.

Check Out The “Jurassic World” – Official Global Trailer

Boy oh boy have there been a lot of trailers to share with you folks but that is never a bad thing when you consider some of the properties that are going to be coming to life on the big screen this summer and the months that follow it. Back in November of 2014 I shared the Teaser Trailer of the upcoming film “Jurassic World”. Honestly speaking, it was much more than a tease based on its length and now with the films opening only a few short months away we have gotten a bigger and better look into the chaos that will be happening on the island that time forgot. Take a look below and we can chat more afterward.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: I enjoyed the first trailer that I posted a few months ago and I really loved all three of the Jurassic Park films that preceded this upcoming release so I guess I am a little on the jaded side. However, when you consider the dismal and brooding trailer that was just released for the eventually coming “Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice”, this one put light and excitement back into my cinephile head (that’s a person who loves movies so get your minds out of the gutter). We get a little more in this trailer than in the previous and we see fleeting glimpses of the Indominus Rex which as you know is a genetically created beast by a greedy park ownership. Like Pratt said in the first trailer “probably not a good idea” and this shows us the price of such folly. There also appears to be a lot of other dino mayhem to be had which should make this an amazing film on the big screen. The film opens up everywhere on June 12th of this year and gives you a nice theatrical experience while you wait for Marvel Studios upcoming “Ant-Man” film. I know that I will be there in the early days of release and I wonder what you kind readers think about this one. Let me know in the comments below.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: As much as I wanted to see this one in the theaters on its opening, the constant shifts in when it was going to open have found it happening at a point where I just cannot afford the time to sit in a theater. This one is likely going to be an HBO one or Netflix for me but I still do wish to see it. What about you folks? Are you interested in this one? Let me know in the comments below. You can also learn more about the film overall on its Wiki entry but be aware that spoiler information will posted in there.

The Trailer Is Here: “Jurassic World” (2015)

I loved the first “Jurassic Park” film along with the second go round and can admit that I even found a slight pleasure in the third film despite it being the weakest of the mix. When I think back to the first film, I have to chuckle about my hitting this one with my parents who seldom found interest in the same things as me when it came to actually going to the movies but I had convinced them it was a good enough book, had to have made a decent film and that it would be a fun family get together for us. Pop liked it more than Mom but I expected that. Earlier during the day I started seeing notations around the web that the fourth film in the franchise was practically in the can for the cinemas and that the first trailer was ready to be enjoyed so here we go.
