B.D. Wong Set To Return For ‘Jurassic World’; New Details About Chris Pratt & Bryce Dallas Howard’s Characters
With ‘Jurassic World’ set to commence shooting any day now, director Colin Trevorrow opened up to IGN about the long-awaited fourth installment in the franchise. With Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Nick Robinson, Irrfan Khan, Vincent D’Onofrio and Ty Simpkins confirmed to star, the filmmaker was asked if any characters are reprising their roles from ‘Jurassic Park.’ “I know a lot of fans want to see the original characters back. They’re iconic. But I respect those actors too much to shoehorn them into this story for my own sentimental reasons. Jurassic Park isn’t about the bad luck of three people who keep getting thrown into the same situation. The only reason they’d go back to that island is if the screenwriters contrived a reason for them to go. But there is a character from the first film who makes sense in our world. This hasn’t been announced yet, but BD Wong will be returning as Dr. Henry Wu. He had a much larger role in the original novel, he was the engineer of this breakthrough in de-extinction. He spent two decades living in Hammond’s shadow, underappreciated. We think there’s more to his story.”
New Trailer For Laika’s ‘The Boxtrolls’ – Featuring The Voices Ben Kingsley, Elle Fanning, Simon Pegg…
Laika have revealed this new trailer for their upcoming animated film ‘The Boxtrolls,’ without a doubt one of my most eagerly awaited films of 2014. Featuring the voices of Ben Kingsley, Isaac Hempstead-Wright, Elle Fanning, Jared Harris, Toni Collette, Nick Frost, Richard Ayoade, Tracy Morgan and Simon Pegg, ‘The Boxtrolls’ is penciled in for a September 26th release in the US and a on September 12th release date in the UK.
A family event movie from the creators of Coraline and ParaNorman that introduces audiences to a new breed of family – The Boxtrolls, a community of quirky, mischievous creatures who have lovingly raised an orphaned human boy named Eggs (voiced by Isaac Hempstead-Wright) in the amazing cavernous home they’ve built beneath the streets of Cheesebridge. When the town’s villain, Archibald Snatcher (Academy Award winner Ben Kingsley), comes up with a plot to get rid of the Boxtrolls, Eggs decides to venture above ground, “into the light,” where he meets and teams up with fabulously feisty Winnifred (Elle Fanning). Together, they devise a daring plan to save Eggs’ family.
‘Divergent’ is the first installment of the futuristic action-adventure trilogy based on Veronica Roth’s The New York Times bestselling novels. Starring Shailene Woodley, Theo James, Kate Winslet, Maggie Q, Jai Courtney, Miles Teller, Zoë Kravitz, Ansel Elgort, Ben Lloyd-Hughes, Ben Lamb, Christian Madsen, Ray Stevenson, Mekhi Phifer and Amy Newbold, ‘Divergent’ is set in a future world where people are divided into distinct factions based on human virtues. Tris Prior (Shailene Woodley) is warned she is “Divergent” and will never fit into any one group. When she discovers a conspiracy by a faction leader (Kate Winslet) to destroy all Divergents, Tris must learn to trust in the mysterious Four (Theo James) and together they must find out what makes being Divergent so dangerous before it’s too late. ’Divergent’ is directed by Neil Burger (Limitless, The Illusionist) and is set for a March 21st release in the US and a April 4th bow in the UK.
A major element of this movie is the question of, “Where do I belong and who am I?” But then also there’s these larger ideas about how do we all get along in society, how does a society ever live in peace with itself; then themes of fear, society and class, choice. What was is it about this story that appealed to you?
Shailene Woodley: A big reason why I wanted to do this movie was because I saw it as a beautiful platform. Just “diverging” alone, meaning diverging from the mainstream, diverging from mediocrity, diverging from what is seen as socially acceptable and really finding your passion and finding what you want to dedicate your life too – regardless of what society says or what the norm is. And that can be a little bit dangerous and can be a risk but you have to be brave to do that and you also have to have a lot of confidence, which stems from self-love. And once you establish self-love, you are really able to be a service to others more, which allows you to be more selfless – and that’s who Tris ends up as. She doesn’t abide and she doesn’t conform to societies rules and regulations and therefore she’s considered dangerous because she’s diverging from the mainstream. And the story is very metaphorical to things that are happening today that I’m very excited to bring to light. Reading Divergent, I became very passionate about Tris and the story.
