Hey Folks!

There’s been quite a bit of talk about Terminator: Genisys in the last week from actor Jai Courtney who is playing Kyle Reese in the film which hits July 1, 2015.

He’s talked about the films POSSIBLE rating based on the film they shot and their not being any f-words in the script as likely to be PG-13. I shouldn’t need to remind anyone how dark and gritty a film can be with that rating. I will also remind you that the film is still being edited, sound designed, digital effects created and fine tuned etc. and thus for obvious reasons the film itself has not been submitted for a rating from the MPAA.

He also mentioned that it was kind of funny working with the endoskeleton actors in that they were people dressed in performance capture suits. This has me very excited as such technology really has a chance to bring the endo armies of Skynet to life in a way that will make them seem more real than ever before.

For those who are worried about that meaning there was no puppetry work at all, we have really no information either way but I’d say that there would still be puppetry work in certain shots and circumstances. I think Terminator and Jurassic World both sequels I’m greatly looking forward to using performance capture technology for Endos and certain Dinos respectively it makes sense to embrace the advancements in technological outgrowth and film making enhancements.

…long before Jurassic World! 

I remember walking out of the theater after seeing Jurassic Park III my mind practically on fire with where I as a fan and screenwriter would take the JP Franchise.

From my perspective I personally felt that the best option was, not surprisingly exactly what we’re getting, a soft reboot. There were certain things that I had enjoyed from the novels which had never made their way into any of the films, so I relished a re-read of the two novels. Once that was behind me I was faced with the problem of where to take the story, I wanted it to continue and I really felt that there was still at least one story which needed to be told.

A working theme park a fulfillment of John Parker Hammond’s dreams.

However I’m faced with a number of problems:

The greed assisted failure of the first film and The Ingen Incident in San Diego in the second and the events of JP III the third. How could a theme park come into existence through Ingen with such issues in the past? The answer to that problem was a simple in that it couldn’t, and that the books gave me something that the films largely avoided…another company that could: Biosyn!

Hello all!

My three favorite movie franchises are Terminator, James Bond and Jurassic Park!

All three have films hitting the big screen next year but tonight I am going to devote some time to discussion on the latest film in the Jurassic Park film universe titled Jurassic World (JW)!

Jurassic World Logo

Universal Pictures has been quite eager to revisit the Jurassic universe and so they should be the original JP has all by itself (including the 3-D re-release) grossed $1,029,153,882, The Lost World: Jurassic Park grossed $618,638,999 and Jurassic Park 3 added $ 368,780,809.

One could argue that as the quality of the stories declined that the total gross declined accordingly, however I can say that I have been waiting along with many others for a revisit to the franchise. And as is often the case the film has gone through a long developmental process.

There was a script by John Sayles which had human dinosaur hybrids that toted machine guns somewhere along the way. However things picked up speed when the writers of Rise of The Planet of the Apes wrote a draft which featured a working park full of visitors where nothing could possibly go wrong…right.

I believe Ian Malcolm once commented: “Yes but when the Pirates of the Caribbean breaks down the pirates don’t start to eat the guests.”

I just know I’m going to get into spoiler territory because a lot of information hit the web over the last couple of days so if you want to remain spoiler free please remain on this side of the break. And before I move onto the next page let me simply state that JW is a soft reboot of the series that takes place 22 years after the incidents of the original Jurassic Park. In a working theme park. And is being directed by Colin Trevorrow with Steven Spielberg producing and a fantastic cast including Bryce Dallas Howard and Chris Pratt, and music by Michael Giacchino. It comes out of extinction June of 2015.

If you want to be spoiled then come through the gates into Jurassic World!
