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?

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.

RIP Adam West

Adam West, most famously known as TV’s Batman, died on June 9th.

Living a life for 88 years is impressive. Now, recall the fact that he defined (however humorously) the image of the Caped Crusader for generations of Batman fans and his legacy begins to take a clearer shape. For many, Mr. West’s defining moment as Batman was that famous “wall climb.”

Ladies and gentlemen, movie/TV magic had to start somewhere. Still, that scene/”stunt” is a nice reminder and memory of the notion that things were simpler back then.

While Adam West will always be remembered as the more comical, light-hearted version of Batman, he’s still one of the very few actors who has portrayed this Dark Knight icon. And, in that spirit, let’s honor Adam West by giving him a modern cinematic treatment of Batman by way of a custom Dark Knight Rises trailer.

Thank you YouTube user “allcappsfilm” for that entertaining adaptation for many people’s first acting Batman outside the comic book universe.

RIP Adam West.

The Impossible Will Become Possible in the Next Mission: Impossible

Until Mission Impossible 6 (title TBD) premieres in theaters, every fan of the action-packed franchise will be cruising around Tom for any exciting details concerning those always exhilerating, death-defying stunts.

Exhibit A: TV host Graham Norton during his recent interview with the aforementioned actor.

Credit Graham Norton for his effort to try to pry any type of detail about Mr. Cruise’s forthcoming stunt guaranteed to shock us all in the best ways imaginable. We all want to know. Well, we don’t want to know, but instead we want to see something incredibly risky. That’s the business us fans are in.

Remember when he scaled the Burj Khalifa in Dubai in Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol?

How does Tom Cruise top that?

As the Mission Impossible 6 producer disclosed in the first video above, it seems like Mr. Cruise is literally preparing to accomplish such a (mysterious) mind-blowing feat. Attempting to wrap my head around it still seems impossible.

I suppose that’s part of the mission of these action movies.
