The critical reaction to Jurassic World:Fallen Kingdom is mixed as mixed can be. Sitting at exactly 50% on Rotten Tomatoes, the movie teeters precisely at the threshold of being perfectly indecisive. The film seems to have satisfied fans and moviegoers slightly better (as the big blockbusters usually do), given its A- Cinemascore and user ratings in the mid 60s on Rotten Tomatoes and IMDb; but none of these scores are the kinds of numbers Universal would like to see on a movie whose predecessor made over $1.6 billion at the global box office in 2015.
Colin Trevorrow may not have directed this summer’s Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom– the follow-up to his wildly popular 2015 film, Jurassic World– but that doesn’t mean he’s done with dinosaurs just yet! Turns out, after co-writing and producing Fallen Kingdom, Trevorrow will return to the director’s chair for part three.
Executive Producer Steven Spielberg told Entertainment Weekly that, “Colin Trevorrow is going write and direct the third Jurassic World story.” He will write the film’s script with Emily Carmichael (Pacific Rim: Uprising). read more

Story: A visually spectacular drama from director J.A. Bayona (“The Impossible”). 12-year-old Conor (Lewis MacDougall), dealing with his mother’s (Felicity Jones) illness, a less-than-sympathetic grandmother (Sigourney Weaver), and bullying classmates, finds a most unlikely ally when a Monster appears at his bedroom window. Ancient, wild, and relentless, the Monster guides Conor on a journey of courage, faith, and truth. Toby Kebbell plays Conor’s father, and Liam Neeson stars in performance-capture and voiceover as the nocturnally visiting Monster of the title. read more
