Fyi, I refuse to use the title Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom. What a dumb name. Why not stick to classic Jurassic Park movie naming conventions? The original sequel was The Lost World: Jurassic Park. So this sequel should be The Lost Park: Jurassic World.
Whatever the name is, a new trailer arrived yesterday and it looks super dumb!
First of all, the trailer spoils everything we’d already been told about the movie. When the first trailer came out, everybody assured us that the trailer didn’t give away the movie — only for this trailer to give it all away. And it looks dumb! And Jeff Goldblum is probably only in one single scene and probably never interacts with the new characters.
But it’s still probably going to make a ton of money.
Jurassic Park is the only really great dinosaur franchise. Why focus on making weird genetically altered super dinosaurs? That just turns them into general kaiju movie monsters and not simply dinosaurs!
Unbeatable Squirrel Girl is one of my all-time favorite comic books. It is, hands down, the funniest comic I have ever read. I’m working to buy all of the trade paperbacks so that I have the whole collection on my graphic novel shelf for future reading! Writer Ryan North and artist Erica Henderson, along with their colorist, letterer and the rest, are a crack creative team! And to honor Henderson bowing out of the series, I wanted to get together my favorite moments and jokes so far!
Funny story. I met Erica Henderson once at Boston Comic-Con about two years ago. She was at her booth and I was on the prowl for a guest cover artist for the Gamer Girl & Vixen graphic novel. In my foolish bravery, I asked her if she did that sort of thing on commission. She looked at me like I was trying to sell her on a pyramid scheme and politely suggested I use the convention to find some local talent. I felt quite silly. She was so right.
Here’s hoping she has even more great success on her next projects! Join me after the jump for my favorite bits from Unbeatable Squirrel Girl!
And yes, I realize that my taking the time to explain the jokes kind of ruins them…so perhaps just read the comic pages I post and that will suffice!
I skipped posting this new trailer last week because I wanted to save something to post today. It’s my day off from work and I’m feeling lazy. Good thing we’ve got this awesome trailer for Incredibles 2 to bask in!
Movie looks great! Can’t wait to see it! Now back to being lazy with my day…
I had never heard of this movie — The Meg — before the trailer randomly arrived online earlier this week. It’s about a giant megalodon shark! With Jason Statham!
I wonder if the shark is nicknamed “Meg” or if they just didn’t want to use the whole word for the title…
Looks about as straight forward as one could expect. Which is exactly why I’m definitely going to the theaters to see it when it comes out in August!
