News Bites about Jurassic Park, Spider-Man, Johansson Award Snub

I thought you guys would like to see some interesting tidbits about the Jurassic Park sequel, Spider-Man 2, and the Scarlett Johansson Award nomination snub.


Scarlett Johansson still from DON JON

First thing's first...  Scarlett Johansson is finding herself in the middle of an interesting little debacle where the Golden Globe voting committee is declaring she's not eligible for a supporting actress award because she protrays a computer.  She does not appear on screen. 

As GRF suggests, this would seem to imply that animated features don't rank either.



The Amazing Spider-Man 2 promo movie poster

Word on the street is that rough first looks at Rhino, Green Goblin from Spider-Man 2 are out there.

NR has a photo of a poster at the Red Rock Casino in Las Vegas.  But the images are not too detailed. 

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 comes to a theater near you on May 2, 2014.

Take a look for yourself if need be at the fuzzy looks...

Jurassic World (2015)

The Jurassic Park movie coming out in 2015, being called Jurassic World, is another sequel of the timeless classic that spawned the film franchise.

But there's been questions/rumors whether this new movie is a reboot or an actual sequel.

News on the street about the story of the film... well director Colin Trevorrow has taken to Titter to squelch the unknown factor that folks were guessing at.

In reply to one Twitter users question, Trevorrow replied that reboot is a strong word, stating that the movie takes place twenty-two years "after the horrific events of Jurassic Park."

That sounds like an interesting way to move forward, possibly implying that a new set of scientific entities could be taking a swing at the same scientific pursuit.  So it could be a reboot, aka, following brand new characters, while leaving the history of Jurassic Park in tact.

If that's the case, that's nice.

Wait... who is Trevorrow who will be helming the creative element of this new JP film?  I've never heard of him before now.  And though new directors (of a sort) have been surprising me with their talents, I still tend to settle in and brace myself when a new name shows up.

Aside from three seemingly small projects from 2002-04, his latest is Safety Not Guaranteed.

His credits on Jurassic World include director and writer of the screenplay.

Hmm... we'll see how it goes.
