This Kingdom’s (Title) Has Come

Jurassic World 2 would not be a great title for the highly-anticipated sequel to Jurassic World.

Thankfully, that won’t be an issue.

Ladies and gentleman, the Jurassic World team is, unlike the viability of a real Jurassic Park, on the right path with the (literally!) just released movie title and poster shown above. The juxtaposition of “Fallen Kingdom” and “Life Finds a Way” sparks an undeniable sense of curiosity one year out from theatrical release into what this story entails and where this story will lead for the third film in this trilogy. The only issue I have (and it’s minor) is the somewhat bland color scheme for the iconic logo in the Jurassic World trilogy’s posters. Maybe the logo’s color, like the story, has a 3-film story arc that won’t bring its full vibrant color scheme to light until the third installment?

Maybe? Hopefully.

However, the slogan (“Life Finds a Way”), the brilliant phrase spoken by Dr. Ian Malcolm in Jurassic Park back in 1993 (who is in Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom), is perfect on so many different levels. This brand new movie poster found a way to be modern, yet nostalgically awesome.

June 22, 2018. Mark it down.

When can we reserve tickets?

Happy Monday

Spring is known as the season of rebirth. Monday, therefore, could be defined as the day of the week for rebirth.

In other words, Mondays seem like a perfect occurrence to hit an internal reset button from the now past week and weekend. To put a finer tip on it, each Monday provides us the unique opportunity to be something we weren’t during the prior days that we wish we were…that we wish we could be.

However, before we make any drastic changes to our lives, it’s important to rediscover our origin story, of sorts. What is our true character? Purpose? Drive? This way, we may better understand the place(s) we really want to go, literally and metaphorically.

Here’s an origin story for the ages that should inspire grand adventures as large as a house perfectly located on the banks of West Egg.

The source of J. Gatsby’s money aside (we all know that side of the story), the relentless ambition of one of the most famous literary characters is undeniable.

And admirable.

Perhaps, admirable extraordinary…?

Have a Better Week Than Last Week.

What Does the Foxx Say?

It has been way, way too long since Jamie Foxx has been in the news.

Luckily, Mr. Foxx not only makes an appearance in today’s blog post, but also proves why he is, as Jay Leno puts it, entertainment’s “Renaissance Man.” And, in the process, consoles an entire city draped in sadness with a brand new lyrical bedtime story.

Cleveland, OH tourism: If you’re watching and reading this, get Jamie Foxx’s agents on the phone ASAP.

Plus, call LeBron James as well.

The excitement when speaking about popular destinations in and around Cleveland, OH by LeBron James is the best pitch for a city I’ve seen in a long, long time.

That rocked.

The Maverick of Nostalgic Sequels?

In part thanks to nostalgia and in part thanks to The Goldbergs, the 1980s are alive and well in the year 2017.

Need an example?

A sequel to the 1986 fan-favorite Top Gun has just been confirmed by, yes, Maverick Tom Cruise. Not only that, but Mr. Cruise revealed more intrguing tidbits about this forthcoming Top Gun follow-up…

This new Top Gun film is exciting for a few reasons:

  • The creative team behind Top Gun will takes its stab at producing a successfully satisfying sequel attempt to a popular movie from the 1980s.
  • Tom Cruise isn’t slowing down when it comes to taking on daring action movies with plenty of death-defying stunts.
  • Top Gun is getting a sequel!

We’re all feeling the need, the need for a speedy production schedule for Top Gun: Maverick.
