The film centers on a teenager (Traub) who becomes enthralled with a serial killer (Foster). Crowe will play a local cop who has been following the killer for years.
I would have pegged this as a “Remember This” piece, but there’s nothing to remember. Grizzly II: The Predator was never released. In fact, it was never even finished – most of the stuff with the bear remains to be shot (and never will be given that the film is almost 30 years old). But it has an insane cast featuring George Clooney, Laura Dern, Louise Fletcher (One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest), Timothy Spall (Prisoner Of Azkaban) and John Rhys-Davies (The Lord Of The Rings, Raiders Of The Lost Ark).
I’ve been hearing about this lost sequel to Grizzly forever and have always thought it sounded insanely awesome. An 18 foot Grizzly Bear invades a rock concert? I would buy a ticket to this, finished or not, in a heartbeat. So obviously I was stoked when I came across this clip this morning, but I was a little bit disappointed to learn that Clooney – a national treasure in my mind – wasn’t working the rock concert. In fact, he actually seems to be a part of the opening kill. READ MORE
While Universal is banging the drum for the Jurassic Park 3D re-release – in theaters this Friday, April 5th – they’re having the talent involved with the film reminisce to major outlets about its’ 20th Anniversary. Here’s an interview Laura Dern and Sam Neill did for “The Today Show”, and there’s a cool look at what might have been! Still think Dern was the right choice for the role though.
It’s not groundbreaking, but it’s a nice little look at what could have been. I like Paltrow, but she was way too young and soft at the time to play Dr. Ellie Sattler. Head inside to check it out! READ MORE
Steven Spielberg’s epic Jurassic Park gets the 3-D treatment April 5, 2013.
While the post-converted garbage is just a way to pull in some extra cash, it could also tell the studio we want more dino action.
Sam Neill and Laura Dern star in the 1993 adaptation that begins during a preview tour of a new theme park, which suffers a major power breakdown that allows its cloned dinosaur exhibits to run amok.
Thus far the film has grossed $914,691,118 worldwide, could the re-release push it over a billion? Who cares…I just want more movies, toys and JP t-shirts. READ MORE
I love playing the “what if?” game, especially when it comes to major films and incredibly powerful filmmakers. This one is the size of a dinosaur.
Steven Spielberg’s Jurassic Park is one of my all time favorite films. It never even crossed my mind that someone else may have ended up adapting the Michael Crichton novel. But what if James Cameron, known for his darker fare such as The Terminator and Aliens, ended up directing?
The filmmaker with the world’s two highest-grossing films under his belt revealed to HuffPost UK that he had always wanted to make the film Jurassic Park, but was beaten to it by Jaws director Steven Spielberg.
“I tried to buy the book rights and he beat me to it by a few hours,” Cameron revealed at the recently-opened “Titanic Museum” in Belfast, where the ship he brought to the big screen was designed and crafted back at the beginning of last century.
“But when I saw the film, I realized that I was not the right person to make the film, he was. Because he made a dinosaur movie for kids, and mine would have been aliens with dinosaurs, and that wouldn’t have been fair.
“Dinosaurs are for 8-year-olds. We can all enjoy it, too, but kids get dinosaurs and they should not have been excluded for that. His sensibility was right for that film, I’d have gone further, nastier, much nastier.”
Spielberg’s 1993 film, which stars Sam Neill and Laura Dern, is nearly $1 billion worldwide. Universal is post-converting the film for 3-D release on April 5, 2013 – that should tip the iceberg and set the stage for the already announced 3-D remake. READ MORE
