Thanksgiving is all about spending time with your loved ones. Every family has their issues and I’m sure Christian Grey’s isn’t an exception. In honor of the holidays, the movie studio is introducing us to the character’s family. I suppose it’s only fitting since turkeys are bound and gagged much like Grey’s sexual partners ;)

Rita Ora (above) wears a severe bob to play Jamie Dornan’s adopted sister, Mia. Meanwhile Marcia Gay Harden and Andrew Airlie portray his parents, Dr. Grace Trevelyan Grey and Carrick Grey respectively. Check out the other photos below. Fifty Shades of Grey hits theaters in February 2015.

2015 Independent Spirit Awards Nominations Announced

Since major studio big budget films aren’t eligible for these awards, the Independent Spirit Awards aren’t much of a reliable barometer for the Oscars. However, it’s still an important stop during the crowded awards season. Anytime you can grab some campaigning time for your film, it’s always beneficial. Love Is Strange, for instance, starring John Lithgow and Alfred Molina has barely been mentioned in the Oscar race but snagged several nominations including Best Feature.

Rosario Dawson and Diego Luna announced the nominations at the W Hotel in Hollywood on Tuesday. Leading the pack with six nominations was Birdman starring Michael Keaton. The 63-year-old actor snagged a nod himself, along with his co-stars Emma Stone and Edward Norton. Close behind with five nods apiece were Selma, Nightcrawler and Boyhood. The latter film featuring Patricia Arquette is considered a strong frontrunner to take home the Best Supporting Actress Oscar come February.

The winners will be presented with their awards on Saturday, February 21 in Santa Monica Beach, the day before the 2015 Oscars. Check out all the 2015 Independent Spirit Awards Nominations below.

Twenty-two years after the events of the original film, Jurassic World is now a fully functioning dinosaur theme park as originally envisioned by John Hammond (Richard Attenborough). Think Seaworld but with prehistoric animals performing tricks for tourists. Naturally, things go haywire when scientists decide to create their very own hybrid dinosaur. Don’t these idiots ever learn anything ;)

Steven Spielberg returns to executive produce the fourth installment with Colin Trevorrow taking on directing duties. Chris Pratt takes a break from guarding the galaxy to play an on-site staff worker who conducts behavioral research on the velociraptors. Bryce Dallas Howard, Judy Greer and Jake Johnson round out the cast. B.D. Wong who played Dr. Henry Wu in the first film books a return trip to Isla Nublar.

Jurassic World
storms into theaters on June 12, 2015. The trailer was originally supposed to premiere on Thanksgiving this Thursday, but someone let the proverbial cat, or in this case a dinosaur, out of the bag early. Check out the exciting clip below.

Unlike NBC’s upcoming heavily-promoted Peter Pan Live! musical, this big budget feature film about the boy who never wanted to grow up looks like it’s not going to be a hot mess. I love that NBC is making musicals into a holiday tradition, but I have a feeling their adaptation is going to crash and burn. The previews haven’t been encouraging at all, IMHO.

Thankfully, Warner’s Bros upcoming adaption of the J.M. Barrie’s classic tale is here to save the day. Director Joe Wright promises, “This isn’t exactly the Neverland story you know.”

The studio just released the first four of what will undoubtedly be plenty more character posters to follow. We get our first look at Hugh Jackman as the villainous Blackbeard. The Wolverine actor is definitely serving sinister realness. Others getting their own artwork are Garrett Hedlund as Captain Hook, Rooney Mara as Tiger Lily and Levi Miller as the titular character. Check them out below.

UPDATE: The first full length trailer just dropped and it looks pretty wicked. Watch Jackman channel his inner Johnny Depp circa Pirates of the Caribbean below.

Wonder Woman Movie Finds Its Female Director

Even though Warner Bros. considered male directors, the studio hoped to find a lady to helm Wonder Woman. Given that the DC superhero is all about female empowerment, I’m sure the studio felt pressure to go this route. Honestly, it only makes sense in my opinion.

After an exhaustive search, their quest is over. Among the frontrunners circling the project for months were successful film directors Kathryn Bigelow (The Hurt Locker), Catherine Hardwicke (Twilight), Mimi Leder (Deep Impact), Julie Taymor (Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark), Karyn Kusama (Jennifer’s Body) and two from the world of television- Michelle MacLaren (Game of Thrones) and Tricia Brock (The Walking Dead). Find out below who Warner Bros. lassoed for the highly-anticipated film.

Jurassic World Teaser Trailer Debuts

Universal debuts the first full length trailer for Jurassic World this Thursday. To whet our appetites, the studio just released a teaser until it premieres. The nostalgic feel of the clip should entice those who loved the original Jurassic Park to return back to the franchise. I have to admit, I got a couple of goosebumps when I saw those giant doors opening in the first few seconds.

Twenty-two years after the events of Jurassic Park, Isla Nublar now features a fully functioning dinosaur theme park, “Jurassic World,” as originally envisioned by John Hammond (Richard Attenborough). The park is owned by the Patel Corporation. Owen (Chris Pratt), a member of Jurassic World’s on-site staff, conducts behavioral research on the velociraptors.

Joining Pratt in the film are Bryce Dallas Howard, Omar Sy, Judy Greer and Vincent D’Onofrio, with the latter playing the villain. Usually, there’s a character or two from a previous film to make a cameo. In this instance, it’s B.D. Wong who played Dr. Henry Wu in the first film.

Jurassic World was shot in 3D and will be released by Universal Pictures on June 12, 2015. Check out the video below.

I guess Chris Pratt isn’t worried about being typecast. With the amount of dollars comic book flicks make these days, I don’t blame the 35-year-old for cashing in. Make money like an invoice gurl!!!

The Star-Lord confirmed his next role via Twitter recently. Find out below which comic adaptation he’s starring in next.

zoolander-2-cast

Zoolander 2 is picking up steam. Deadline reports the long-awaited sequel has snagged a ridiculously good-looking actress.

Penelope Cruz is reportedly signing on to co-star opposite Ben Stiller’s dimwitted supermodel alter ego Derek Zoolander. Let’s hope she has some flame retardant outfits just in case they recreate that memorable gas station scene. No details about her role has been released.

Though not confirmed, both Will Ferrell and Owen Wilson are rumored to reprise their roles as the sinister Mugatu and Zoolander’s rival Hansel respectively. Justin Theroux, better known as Jennifer Aniston’s handsome arm candy, wrote the script for Paramount Pictures.

Are you excited for the sequel? Do you think Cruz is a good addition? Sound off below.
