Universal is releasing several sneak peeks and promos for Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom in the lead up to tomorrow’s debut of the first trailer. Today’s offering is arguably the best so far: A featurette that takes you behind the scenes of the upcoming sequel with director Juan Antonio Bayona, co-writer and producer Colin Trevorrow, and the cast — including Jeff Goldblum, making his highly-anticipated return to the franchise as Ian Malcolm.
I’d like to think I’m not prone to hyperbole, so believe me when I say I’m putting all my remaining Marvel eggs in the Thor: Ragnarok basket. Sure, I’ve more-or-less enjoyed most of the movies in the franchise — this year’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, for example, might be one of their best yet — but superhero movies are like anything else: the more you ingest, the less you enjoy it the next time around. If Marvel is going to continue making these movies until the sun explodes, then I’m ready for things to get a little bit weird, and Thor: Ragnarok director Taika Waititi is the right person to deliver.
We’ve seen one look at Andy Samberg’s HBO followup to tennis mockumentary 7 Days in Hell, but the Tour de Pharmacy is only just begun. Get ready for a dope-tastic July premiere with the full trailer and key-art, crammed to the gills with famous faces.
We don’t really need further evidence that we are living in a total nightmare (or an alternate timeline, if you’re one of Those People), but then a piece of news comes along that forces us to confront the true horror of reality by offering a painful glimpse at a beautiful life that could’ve been — and never was (at least not in this timeline, if you’re one of Those People). Today, it’s the heartbreaking revelation that Jeff Goldblum — national treasure, king of the silver foxes and master of the universe — could have been the voice of Siri on your iPhone. In the mournful words of the wise Adele, WE COULD’VE HAD IT AAAALLLLLL.
