How a Nintendo 64 Pokémon Game Helped Set the Stage for ‘Detective Pikachu’

Those maniacs went ahead and did it. They finally made a life-action Pokémon movie that brings the world of Pikachu, Bulbasaur and even the nightmare-inducing Mr. Mime to life. It’s been 21 years since both the first games, Pokémon Red and Blue, and the anime premiered in the US in September 1998. Since then we’ve got more than a thousand episodes of an anime series, 21 animated movies and over 30 video games, but all of those mostly showed the Pokémon as collectable trophies or the combat...

Living dinosaurs could be recreated within a decade, says paleontologist

Genetic research "could engineer dinosaurs back into existence" within a decade, according to the paleontologist who helped inspire Michael Chrichton's novel Jurassic Park. Famed paleontologist Dr. Jack Horner, who’s been a consultant on all four films and is the real-life inspiration for Jurassic Park‘s dinosaur expert Dr. Alan Grant, believes we’re (optimistically) just five years away from genetically engineering a dinosaur. When he first started advising Steven Spielbergthis link opens in...

Sorry, But ‘Jurassic World 3’ Won’t Have Dinosaurs Attacking Cities

The end of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom teased the idea that dinosaurs roaming around in the world without restrictions would be a big part of Jurassic World 3. However, according to director and writer Colin Trevorrow, fans shouldn’t expect to see dinosaurs attacking cities and neighborhoods like Rise of the Planet of the Apes or some kind of Godzilla movie. It shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone that Jurassic World 3 won’t take dinosaurs into cities and suburbs. After all, we already got...

The 10 Best Jurassic Park Dinosaur Encounters

The 10 best Jurassic Park dinosaur encounters Steven Spielberg monumentally sparked our imagination when he released Jurassic Park in 1993.  Never before (and hardly since) had moviegoers seen such realistic portrayals of dinosaurs on the big screen.  Movie dinosaurs were usually relegated to stop-motion animation, dating back all the way to the 1933 King Kong.   However , Spielberg broke the visual effects mold.  He combined state-of-the-art computer graphics technology with practical a...

Based on everything on display in this trailer, it’s clear that director Michael Dougherty has crafted a unique and surprisingly emotional monster movie, and a follow-up that might be distancing itself from 2014’s Godzilla.

‘Jurassic Park 3’ Honest Trailer: The Movie That Finally Ruined Dinosaurs for Everyone

This weekend brings Jurassic Park: Fallen Kingdom to theaters. And while it seems like there’s not much excitement surrounding the sequel, it’s still on track to have a big opening weekend somewhere between $130 million and $140 million. That may not be as big as the opening of Jurassic World, but that’s perfectly fine. At the very least we know this won’t be a disaster on par with what is probably the worst film in the franchise. Jurassic Park 3 was released in 2001 in a desperate attempt to k...

Official ‘Jurassic Park’ LEGO Set Finally Recreates Scenes in Building Block Form

Since the Jurassic Park franchise was reinvigorated with the legacy-quel Jurassic World in 2015, the merchandise for the action adventure film series featuring hungry dinosaurs has been ramped up to its full potential.

‘Lobo’ Screenwriter Teases Which Comic Book Run is Inspiring His Script

Lobo is a chain-smoking, chain wearing alien bounty hunter who has very niche appeal. So it’s screenwriter Jason Fuchs‘ job to bring the character to a wider audience. The Wonder Woman writer has his work cut out for him when it comes to writing a Lobo movie, but he won’t try to bring the character to the masses by scrapping everything that makes him, well, him. Instead, like he did with Wonder Woman, Fuchs says he will try to capture the true essence of Lobo. And that means going back to the b...

Kenny Dorham: K.D. Is Here

Kenny Dorham played his trumpet with a pinched tone. It wasn't blisteringly hot or flabby but romantically taut and mildly piercing. The notes were like the dots on exclamation points—just distinct enough to make a statement. And he often made notes shimmer briefly, like a hovering bumblebee. He used this punctuating and shimmer technique to great effect when playing with Charlie Parker from 1948 to 1950 and throughout the 1950s on great albums such as Tadd Dameron's Fontainebleau, Max Roach + ...

You may not recognize Michael Crichton's name, but the guy was a low-key genius. The writer and filmmaker was a master at constructing very cool sci-fi universes — emphasis on the science — not too far off from our own. Crichton, who died in 2008, is best known for Jurassic Park; he wrote the screenplay and the novel upon which the 1993 film was based.Now we have HBO's newest hit Westworld, based on the movie Crichton wrote and directed all the way back in 1973. There are, of course, a couple o...
