Jurassic World 2015 Trailer Released

The latest addition to Steven Spielberg’s classic dinosaur movie Jurassic Park is finally here and fans can catch the latest trailers on YouTube. Universal Studios has announced the official release date of the movie titled “Jurassic World” as June 12, 2015 which has been directed by Colin Trevorrow and is based on Michael Crichton’s Jurassic Park. The film stars Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Ty Simpkins, Jake Johnson, Judy Greer, Vincent D’Onofrio and others. Though Steven Spielberg had announced the movie way back in 2001 there were several delays for finalization of cast, director and story theme. Instead of previous rumors of naming the latest edition as Jurassic Park IV it has been titled Jurassic World. This title was deemed appropriate to present the scene of action in a theme park which has different dinosaur species as main attractions.

About the Trailer

The Jurassic World official trailer which was released on 25th November by Universal has already received more than 20 million views on YouTube. The trailer begins with children Gray and Zack going on a trip to Jurassic World and is being waved off by Bryce Dallas Howard’s character warning them to run if trouble brews on the island. The children are taken to the island along with several other visitors on a hovercraft and the next shot has people wandering around a market area with shops and restaurants. Subsequent scenes show people being driven around in safari style with Apatosaurus eating from treetops like giraffes’ followed by lagoon cruise with stegosaurus and brachiosaurus wandering around the landscape.

Visitors are then shown going on an interactive ride in the Gyrosphere and then sitting around to see a Mosasaurus being fed a large white shark similar to a feeding scene one might witness in a dolphin park when they are fed fishes. The next scene has a scientist declaring proudly that they have managed to create a “genetically modified hybrid” which blends qualities of varied species and is a highly intelligent animal. Rest of the trailer moves pretty swiftly with the warden in charge Chris Pratt declaring that the “Hybrid D-Rex” has escaped its enclosure and could pose a threat to guests. The remaining scenes are typical of Jurassic movies with people running wildly on the streets and children corned by dinosaurs with parents trying to rescue them.

Season 10 of The Bachelorette Comes to an End

Andi Dorfman

The 27-year-old lawyer from Atlanta Andi Dorfman finally found her match in 29-year-old pro baseball player Josh Murray. For those who have not yet seen the season finale, spoilers ahead. The audience though were not too enthusiastic about the July 28 finale as the current season was one of the most boring thanks to the absence of any sort of drama. Dorfman was once a fan-favorite as she had rejected the selfish Juan Pablo on The Bachelor. However, the audience were looking for something more which the articulate and level-headed Dorfman failed to provide.

The season 10 was the perfect example of a nice innocent person making for terrible TV. The rating of the entire season was the lowest in the history of the show because of the fairly predictable ending. The show which is mainly about finding true love ended up being a show that reinforces the old-school notions about how women and men behave when forced into a particular situation.

However, there was a moment of awkwardness for everyone involved when the runner-up, 33-year-old Nick Viall demanded to know from Dorfman why she had sexual relations with him when she wasn’t really interested in a long-term relationship, on live TV. It was a total shocker and was the only moment where the audience was really interested in what was going to happen next. It was anyway an open secret where everyone knew that an American girl won’t marry a man without finding out whether he is sexually compatible with her.

In any case, what Nick did by disclosing what happens inside closed doors was quite unacceptable to the general audience, especially in front of the girl’s parents and fiance. The response from Dorfman showed her class as she didn’t over-react at all and handled him the same way a guy would, if he was forced to face a teary-eyed woman he had slept with and eventually dumped.

The Bachelorette Pays Tribute to Eric Hill

The producers of the show The Bachelorette had to handle an uncomfortable situation when a former contestant Eric Hill died in a paragliding accident in Utah on April 23rd. The 31-year-old had just wrapped up his episodes for the current season in which he was one among many, vying for the attention of Andi Dorfman.

The creators were left with two tricky options of either leaving out his scenes in the show altogether or editing his scenes. Both these options could have left a bad taste in the mouth for the audience and especially his family. The show is not known for handling tough and awkward situations as it is more popular for exploiting the emotional weakness of a person.

However, at the season 10 premiere which was televised on May 19th, the host of the show Chris Harrison paid a very cautious tribute to Eric and dedicated the entire season to him. Chris also described how this tragic incident has affected the cast and crew of the show. However, he also added that after they get over the mourning, they all will have to deal with the situation in a professional manner and carry on with their obligation to the show. It will be a very strange experience for the audience to see the show knowing that the person they are watching is no longer alive.

The leading lady of this season Andi Dorfman was quite devastated and shocked when she heard about the news of Eric’s tragic death. She then went on to describe the kind of person Eric was and how he loved his sporting life. During a one-on-one interaction between the two, he told her how he loved doing adventurous activities which was quite ironic as he died while doing an adventurous act. The audience will be seeing more of him in the show as he advances to the next episode.

Designer and Creator HR Giger Dies

Swiss artist and designer HR Giger died in a hospital in Switzerland on Monday. He succumbed to the numerous injuries on his body as he fell down from the stairs at his home in Zurich. Giger was 74 years old and his body could not bear the injury from the fall. He was born Hans Ruedi Giger in the year 1940. He studied industrial design and architecture in Zurich.

His designs have always been something out of the ordinary and he was always way ahead of his contemporaries in terms of the thought and execution that goes behind making those creepy designs. He is a creator known for fusing machinery with human bodies which is also termed as Surreal Biomechanics.

He is known for creating the xenomorph design of the alien in the famous sci-fi movie franchise Alien directed by Ridley Scott. His work during the 1970s was considered by many as futuristic and he deservedly won the Oscar in the category of visual effects for Alien in 1980. Ridley Scott was shocked to hear about the death of Giger and expressed his sadness at the passing away of Giger.

Scott described Giger as a man who was passionate and committed to his field of work. Giger had an amazing collection of designs which he kept locked-up inside his studio. He allowed only Scott to enter the studio. According to Scott Giger was a true original.

Giger’s family issued a statement saying that he was a generous, humorous and a warm person whose work was in stark contrast to his personality. His family also expressed their gratitude for the numerous tributes paid to him. He gave his inputs to all the three Alien movies and his last appearance was in a documentary movie about director Alejandro Jodorowsky.

He will be sorely missed by the film fraternity in both Europe and the US.

Trailer of David Fincher Directed Movie Gone Girl Starring Ben Affleck Released

New Regency Pictures released the first trailer of their new movie, Gone Girl, starring Ben Affleck and Rosamund Pike. The movie is directed by acclaimed filmmaker David Fincher who has made some of the most iconic thriller movies like Se7en, Fight Club, Zodiac and The Social Network among others. Gone Girl is an adaptation of a novel of the same name by Gillian Flynn which was a bestseller and promises to be another grown-up thriller.

The cast of the film includes the lead protagonist Nick Dunne played by Ben Affleck, a journalist who loses his job and is then accused of murdering his wife Amy who suddenly goes misssing on their fifth wedding anniversary. The role of Amy is played by British actress Rosamund Pike.

The dark trailer which is devoid of any dialogues shows the seemingly perfect relationship between the couple going tumultuous which indicates that there will be a lot of twists and turns in the movie. The trailer also contains Richard Butler’s version of the song She. The trailer ends with the body of Amy floating under water with Nick crying in the background “I did not kill my wife. I am not a murderer.” Director David Fincher has apparently decided to have his own alternate version for the ending sequence which has created a lot of interest even among those who have read the book.

The soundtrack of the movie contains scores from Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross. The Oscar winners have apparently worked twice with Fincher in the past. Gone Girl will be Fincher’s first film after The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and his fans are eagerly waiting for the release of the movie which may take place sometime in the month of October.
