New Jurassic World Clip Stomps On To The Web

Chris Pratt's on the run

If you’re looking to go into Jurassic World without having seen too much, you might want to avoid the new trailer (roaring away at the bottom of the page) and almost certainly this new clip, which showcases the big threat of the movie. But if you’re happy to watch more, enjoy. 

brightcove.createExperiences();

Jurassic World finds John Hammond’s dream of a fully functioning dino-park realised thanks to a massive conglomerate that has stepped into the T-Rex-shaped breach and injected a load of dosh to get the place up and running under the smooth business aegis of Bryce Dallas Howard’s Claire. 

By now, things are operating smoothly, with attractions galore and tourist hotspots all around. But as time has gone on, even the biggest and baddest dino displays have become a tad passé. So, in an attempt to drum up fresh interest, Claire and the other executives have given the thumbs up to a particularly smart dinosaur called Indominus Rex. One that doesn’t really understand its place in the world and that has already made a quick lunch of the twin born alongside it. And because this is a Jurassic Park film, it’s not long before the screaming starts and the new menace stomps across the theme resort like an out of control toddler with much more dangerous teeth. 

The clip showcases just that, with animal behavioral specialist Owen Grady (Chris Pratt) having to dash for his life as Indominus decides he’d make a tasty morsel. Director Colin Trevorrow definitely seems to want to pay homage to Steven Spielberg’s first two movies and their spirit appears alive and well here.

We’ll see if that’s the case for sure when Jurassic World arrives on June 11 in the UK.

Jason Statham Gets Gnarly In New Spy Clip

'This arm has been ripped off and reattached with THIS arm.'

Jason Statham has destroyed more villainous goons than we’ve had hot (and cold) dinners - and we're greedy buggers. He’s back repeating the trick in Paul Feig/Melissa McCarthy espionage action-comedy, Spy. This time, however, he’s playing things for laughs. A new clip from the film showcases his rather insecure agent and comes off like Alan Partridge channelling Daniel Craig's 007. Job done.

brightcove.createExperiences();

“This arm has been ripped off completely and reattached with this fucking arm,” he barks, desperately asserting his badass credentials in a way that would raise at least one Chev Chelios eyebrow.

Statham, who plays a temper-fuelled spy called Rick Ford, has been on Feig’s wishlist since Lock, Stock and more specifically, those two Crank movies. “When people read the Statham role they assumed I’d go for someone like Will Ferrell, but I felt that it had to be the real guy,” the writer/director told Empire.

McCarthy, meanwhile, is Susan Cooper, a CIA analyst whose excited dreams of being a field agent have long since died down to the mundane task of guiding more adept field operatives such as Jude Law’s super-smooth spy guy. But when he falls off the grid and their entire organisation is jeopardised by a wrongdoer (Rose Byrne), her handlers’ only choice is to send Susan in. But it won’t be easy. And thanks to the horrible cover identity they’ve saddled her with, it won’t be pretty, either.

Head here for a look at the movie’s full trailer or catch it in cinemas from June 5.

Exclusive First Look At Victor Frankenstein

James McAvoy and Daniel Radcliffe's weird science

Victor Frankenstein is back and this time – unlike Mel Brooks' version – it’s not pronounced “Fronkensteen”. James McAvoy is donning the scientist’s garb in the new iteration of Mary Shelley’s Gothic tale and, alongside co-star Daniel Radcliffe’s Igor, he’s arrived to meet his public in two exclusive shots from the new issue of Empire. Click on the thumbnails for a closer look. {First Look At Frankenstein} Note the heavyweight leather jerkin and goggles adorning McAvoy’s not-entirely-good doctor. The monster he’s creating – the film’s big reveal – is akin to something terrible birthed from the Industrial Revolution, a steampunk messiah that may just destroy its own creator. Note, too, Radcliffe’s ramrod posture as he remains in character for this between-takes snap. Clearly Dr. Frankenstein’s unique brand of chiropractic is working on his hitherto hunchbacked factotum.   

For the June issue of Empire - onsale on April 30 - the team's bravest soul, clutching flaming torch in one hand, Dictaphone in the other, headed down to the Longcross, Surrey set of the monster movie to get the scoop.

“As much as the monster is his creation, Igor is his creation as well,” explained McAvoy on set. “That was quite exciting. It’s funny, the script, but also really dark, in a cool way."

Overseeing all this is Paul ‘Gangster No.1' McGuigan, directing from a script by Chronicle's Max Landis. Alongside McAvoy and Radcliffe, Victor Frankenstein will boast the acting talents of Mark Gatiss, Jessica Brown Findlay and Andrew Scott when it hits our screens on October 2, 2015.
