MOVIE – Coming Soon: JURASSIC WORLD [Film] 2015

🌿A Poster for the film JURASSIC WORLD🌿:

Jurassic World 1...

🎬

The long awaited fourth installment of the Jurassic franchise “JURASSIC WORLD” will be released in 2015 and the actual plot for the upcoming film has yet to be announced at the time of this post. The plot will be updated once it is available. The rumor mill though, is in full swing. It has been stated that much of the film takes place on the island of Isla Nublar, which was the island from the first Jurassic Park film.

Rumors also state that Jurassic World (Jurassic Park: 4) will have succeeded in opening the theme park that John Hammond wanted in part 1, which never came to be then. There is also talks of underwater dinosaurs in this film as well as T-Rex possibly being up against a new threat, a dinosaur we’ve never seen in any of the past Jurassic Park films. We will update information on the much anticipated film as it is officially released.

*UPDATED* (January 17th *30th) – THE FIRST LOOK AT THE NEW DINO COMING TO JURASSIC WORLD:

The park’s owners wanted a bigger and badder dinosaur so that the guests at the newly opened park can be entertained. This is when they decide to actually create a hybrid dino that would be even larger and more dangerous than T-Rex. The name of this new hybrid dinosaur is Indominus Rex which was not initially introduced in the first trailer of the Jurassic World film. But the most recent promos are giving up the first chance to meet this new ferocious dino.

Director Colin Trevorrow  had this to say: “The gaps in [Indominus Rex’s] sequence were filled with DNA from other specia, much like the genome in the first film was completed with frog DNA. I know the idea of a modified dinosaur put a lot of fans on red alert, and I understand it. But we aren’t doing anything here that (Michael) Crichton didn’t suggest in his novels.”

Indominus Rex has a more ancient look to it, like it would have existed before the Triassic period (about 231.4 million years ago); the Tyrannosaurus existed in the Maastrichtian age of the upper Cretaceous Period (about 66 to 68 million years ago). It looks like a more aggressive, agile T-Rex, which is never a good combination.

I’m very excited to see what this new breed will look like in the motion film. But this may be the actual first glimpse at the newest dinsosaur set to terrorize all of the park guests during the summer later this year in a theater near you.

GHOSTBUSTERS 3

DIRECTOR: Paul Feig.  CAST: Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Leslie Jones and Kate McKinnon.

Ghostbusters 3 was a rumor for a long time but earlier in 2014 it was confirmed that a reboot would definitely be coming to a theater near you in the near future. What has been officially confirmed is that the Ghostbuster crew will consist of an all female cast! Some of the rumors that have floated around before the cast was announced were that: some of the original cast will return or that Oscar(Sigourney Weaver’s character’s son)will become a Ghostbuster now as an adult.

What has been shared via Twitter from the film’s director @PaulFeig is this: “It’s official. I’m making a new Ghostbusters & writing it with @katiedippold & yes, it will star hilarious women. That’s who I’m gonna call.”

The original director Ivan Reitman was on board to direct this latest installment but he stepped down after the passing of the original Ghostbuster and writer of the film, Harold Ramis who played Egon Spegler. Reitman stayed a part of the film as a producer. Filming is set to being in the summer of 2015 in New York City. UPDATES: Chris Hemsworth has been cast to field the calls for the all female-cast of Ghostbusters as the receptionist.

UPDATES & CAMEO NEWS: Chris Hemsworth has been cast to field the calls for the all female-cast of Ghostbusters as the receptionist. Cameos by the original cast members Sigourney Weaver, Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Ernie Hudson, and Annie Potts have been confirmed to happen!

PLOT: Kristen Wiig and Melissa McCarthy play a pair of unheralded authors, Erin Gilbert and Abby Yates, who write a book positing that ghosts are real. Flash forward a few years and Erin(Wiig) lands a prestigious teaching position at Columbia U. (Like the original, the story takes place in New York City, even though it’s being shot in Boston.) Which is pretty sweet, until her book resurfaces and she is laughed out of academia. Erin reunites with Abby(McCarthy) and the other two proton pack-packing phantom wranglers, and she gets some sweet revenge when ghosts invade Manhattan and she and her team have to save the world.” via: BostonHerald

POLTERGEIST

DIRECTOR: Gil Keenan.  CAST: Jared Harris, Sam Rockwell, Rosemarie DeWitt, Kennedi Clements, Saxon Sharbino, Kyle Catlett, and Jane Adams.

The classic horror film is getting a sequel/remake through 20th Century Fox with Gil Keenan as the film’s director. The cast and plot have been confirmed and the film will be made in 3D.  2015’s Poltergeist writer has re-imagined and revamped the tale of a family’s suburban neighborhood home being invaded by terrifying spirits. With a drastic change in special effects available today and knowing that there are more electronics today then when the original film was made, we can safely assume that the spirits may go beyond simply coming through the television.

Jared Harris will play the celebrity ghost hunter and host of a cable TV show called Haunted House Cleaners in the film. The Bowen family will be played by Sam Rockwell, Rosemarie DeWitt, Saxon Sharbino, Kyle Catlett, and Kennedi Clements as the youngest daughter of the Bowen family.  Jan Adams has been cast as Dr. Claire Powell.

PLOT: The film follows the classic horror tale of a family’s suburban neighborhood home being invaded by angry and terrifying spirits. When the frightening apparitions become more forceful while terrorizing the family, they escalate their attacks to the point of taking the youngest daughter. The family must unite to try and rescue her.

EXPECTED RELEASE DATE: JULY 24th, 2015

INDEPENDENCE DAY: RESURGENCE:

DIRECTOR: Roland Emmerich.  CAST: Jeff Goldblum, Liam Hemsworth, Jessie Usher, Bill Pullman, Vivica A. Fox, Maika Monroe, Joey King, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Judd Hirsch, Brent Spiner, Sela Ward, William Fichtner, and Angelababy.

“Independence Day 2” which will be called “ID Forever Part 1” was announced in 2013 with Roland Emmerich set as the director. The film was given a 2016 release date for the first of a two-part sequel to the blockbuster hit “Independence Day”. The initial plan was to shoot both ID Forever Part 1 “Independence Day 2” and ID Forever Part 2 “Independence Day 3” back to back. The latest change announced officially is the title of “Independence Day Part 2” which is now titled INDEPENDENCE_DAY:_RESURGENCE.

What we can probably look forward to and expect: The story will have a new generation of humans defending mankind against their dangerous alien adversaries in a whole new way with all of the CGI special-effects available today that was not around in the 90’s. UPDATE ON CASTING: First off, Jeff Goldblum, Bill Pullman, and Vivica A. Fox are set to reprise their roles. AWESOME! Liam Hemsworth is taking a role as an alien butt-kicker in the upcoming ID2 film. Jessie Usher has also been cast and is being dubbed as “Will Smith 2.0” who will play (Will Smith’s character in the 1996 film)-Steven Hiller’s step-son, who I assume is Vivica A. Fox’s son from the first film. Maika Monroe has been cast as President Whitmore’s daughter which was originally played by Mae Whitman in the ID1 film.

UPDATES & CAMEO NEWS: Jeff Goldblum, Bill Pullman, Vivica A. Fox, Judd Hirsch, and Brent Spiner will all return to reprise their roles.

PLOT: 20 years after the events of the first film, a new wave of alien “reinforcements” arrive at our planet in response to a distress signal sent up by the “first wave” of extraterrestrial visitors. As expected, insanity ensues. (via: Bloody Disgusting)

BOOK: COVER REVEAL: ‘You and Everything After’ by Ginger Scott

New! COVER REVEAL for the upcoming novel:
‘YOU AND EVERYTHING AFTER’ (Falling Series-book#2) by Author Ginger Scott.

You And Everything After - Falling Series 2 by Ginger Scott

📚

Synopsis for ‘YOU AND EVERYTHING AFTER’:

I’m that teenaged girl who has MS. You haven’t met me, but you’ve seen me around. You probably know my sister. We’re twins, and she’s the pretty one. Maybe you’ve heard about my reputation, how much I like to hook up at parties—how easy it is to get me in bed, get what you want, and forget about me after.

Forget what you think you know. I’m leaving that girl behind.

College is all about new beginnings. So from now on—I’m just Cass. And the rest…it isn’t written yet. And no one else gets to write my story for me.

——–

“Tyson Preeter doesn’t do can’t.”

That’s exactly what I want people to think when they see me. I am strong, invincible, confident, intelligent—arrogant. I’m the man who always finds a way around, over and through—until there’s nothing left. Since losing my ability to walk six years ago, I’ve relearned life. I don’t need sympathy. I don’t want charity. And I don’t do love.

It’s better this way, saves my disappointments for me, and me alone, and it saves my strength for everything I want.

But Cass Owens is about to wreck everything. She’s about to steal all of my strength away from me, because she needs it more. She’s about to break all of my rules, and break down all of my walls. She’s about to own me…completely.

And I’m about to let her.

* This is the second book in the Falling Series, and it is scheduled to release Dec. 5. Book 1, This Is Falling, is out now. Each book can be read as a standalone and will focus on a different couple.

The Synopsis for ‘What She Lost and Found’:

When you are faced with challenges, what matters most is how you choose to deal with them. That determines your fate…

Her life seemed perfect…
Her best friend since childhood, was like a sister to her. Wherever she’d go, her best friend Christina, was usually nearby. It should have been a wonderful beginning into adulthood during her freshman year of college. Unfortunately, two horrible nights would shake her world to the core.
Innocence would be stolen, lives would be shattered
and a young life is lost. Nothing would ever be the same again for Daniela.

Daniela Franco stopped trusting others after a horrible ordeal she experienced, at the hands of people within her own hometown. With a past that relentlessly continues to control her life, she decides to protect herself by never allowing anyone to get close enough to destroy her world again.

For the past few years, focusing on work and school, staying away from the wild-college parties and keeping a tiny circle of friends, has kept her safe. But life has a way of changing things.

Her secrets from the past begin to slowly resurface, threatening to rock her world again in the dark and destructive ways it had years earlier.
Can Daniela face the demons from her past, when they are determined to finish what was started?
Will the people she has begun opening up to, be able to survive her secrets as well as their own?

With new friendships, chances to build trust again, the possibility of finding love and experiencing intimacy the way it is meant to be,
changes are certain.

Daniela must try to live with what she lost and with what will soon be found…

**Mature Content Warning** Contains some profanity, mature situations, sexual content which includes a sexual assault.

A ‘Blogging Guest Reader’s ARC-Review’ after reading ‘WHAT SHE LOST AND FOUND’:

Thank you Books, Movies, Fandoms for letting me share my review on your blog. Being that this is your debut novel I am ecstatic to be able to give my honest perspective on your work. Where do I start from…well I guess the beginning is always a good place. What She Lost and Found follows college senior Daniela Franco who had an average history up until a couple of nights during her freshman year at college in her hometown of Houston, Texas.

The beginning of her horrid ordeals began one night at a party with so-called friends and classmates she had known growing up. Her best friend Christina wasn’t there that night and things went bad for Daniela. She was attacked by more than one assailant at the party but someone came to the room giving her the chance to get out of there.  It wasn’t the end…not even close. A couple of nights later after her ordeal, tragedy struck in such a terrible way. Her childhood best friend Christina Borello is also attacked but her attack leads to her heartbreaking murder.

Daniela was broken. She took the next step that she felt she had to since no one had been caught or arrested, she moved away to complete her schooling at a university in Austin, Texas. You can’t help but feel her pain but also feel how much she wants to try to live. She struggles to stay afloat and live a normal life even though deep inside she has scars from the past that still control the decisions she makes in her life. She has a friend who was a former roommate, Bridget, who is like a ray of sunshine on a cloudy day for Daniela. She is there for this girl and supports her in the best ways that seem perfect for the somewhat recluse Daniela.

But let me not forget to tell you about the hot and adorable men in Daniela’s life now. First she meets Nathan.  He is the epitome of tall, dark haired, and handsome! He is interested in getting to know Daniela but she is ready to just keep her walls up because she views herself as being too damaged to be with someone as awesome as Nate. So, they decide to build a friendship and get closer. He is definitely loving, protective, caring, and just the whole entire package! Nathan shares his feelings for Daniela to her but she basically only wants to keep him as a friend because she’s afraid to lose him if they were to date.  She didn’t want to risk her first guy friendship so they leave it at that for now. **sad face**  Then she meets Alex. He was unexpected and definitely wasn’t someone I would’ve fallen for since Nathan was a man-buffet from the start.  If that makes any sense! So back to Alex.  He’s sexy, handsome, caring, and protective.  I loved that both of these men seem genuinely great and protective, which is what a person like Daniela needed in her life. Alex seems fantastic and by this point Daniela realizes that there is more to him and he may actually have his own dark past.

To top it all off, the past won’t let Daniela go. Her fears are not only in her heart and mind, they become a part of her new life in Austin.  Someone is stalking her.  She has no clue who they are but they are taunting her. She tries to continue with her life because she doesn’t want to let the fear control her anymore. Without giving too much away, someone that she becomes close with is a part of a certain lifestyle that brings danger their way.  This leads to a tear-jerking moment where someone meets with tragedy.

The journey through Daniela’s life is a roller coaster of emotions ranging from heartbreaking, tragic, happy, loving, and courageous. She goes through so many things but most are tied to a shared source which explains why so much goes on in her life. She is anything but average and I like her because of that. The men in the story are definitely book-boyfriend worthy. There’s a perfect mix of romance, thriller moments with that crazed stalker, steamy moments, suspense, tear-jerking incidences and a nice touch of friendship with loyalty.  Get your copy because I am sure you’ll be hooked on when you read it.
–Thanks for letting me share my review here M.G.,

MEMORABLE QUOTES & LINES FROM ‘WHAT SHE LOST AND FOUND’

Alex to Daniela:  “I’ll be honest with you, there has never been another girl that I felt was worth reassuring. There is just something about you that says if I screw this up, I deserve to be lonely and miserable.”

Nathan to Daniela: “Daniela, I don’t ever want you thinking you’re damaged or have are a huge-burden of baggage or whatever. I love everything about you and I’m willing to handle your so-called baggage if you are willing to handle mine. I’ll keep trying to make you see that we’d be great together because I can just feel it. It feels right.”

Daniela’s thoughts: His mouth is devouring my body in the most titillating way and I’m loving every second of it. When we fall to my bed, he gently grabs my hands and holds them next to my head. Bad memories try to surface but they’re gone instantly. They don’t belong in this moment.

Daniela’s thoughts:  He is my heart and soul. How I lived so long without my heart and soul, I’ll never know.

Daniela’s thoughts on the hooded mystery guy:  I hate this feeling. The feeling of vulnerability and fear. I wonder who that stranger is. Something about the hooded man seemed familiar but I can’t figure it out.
Thoughts are rushing through my mind until my heart races. I think I know who it could have been.

Daniela’s thoughts:  Life happened and it altered my views on so much. My path was going right and took a drastic turn to the left. I feel like I’m blindly going through life grasping at any opportunity to regain some kind of control. I am blinded by the darkness that touched and scarred my life.

Daniela’s thoughts:  I wonder if he can see what an imposter I really am. I’m walking around pretending to be a normal college girl with no issues when in fact, I have so much baggage. I never want to burden anyone with it. If he knew about it, I bet he’d run for the hills.

Daniela’s thoughts:  As our kiss becomes deeper and hungrier, our hands begin a blind search for nothing in particular.
I shiver from the fiery trail he’s leaving with each inch he touches, causing a trail of nerves to awaken with arousal. When our tongues begin their sweet rhythmic assault against each other, my head is completely lost on cloud nine. I feel tingles everywhere his hands have long left behind. Those tingles are like a wildfire, spreading all over my body.

Nathan and Daniela:  Each time I’ve spoken with Nathan he’s always had such a friendly and kind expression. He’s usually smirking or smiling at me so this new expression on his face now, is completely new to me.
Nathan’s dark brown eyes became darker and devoid of any of the warmth from before and now convey a fire fueled by anger. I’m frozen in terror, worried about the situation unfolding. The three of us have most of the people on the dance floor at a standstill, watching to see what’s going to happen next.
Nathan’s strong voice booms out, “She said to let her go and to leave her alone! Did you not understand her?”

Daniela’s thoughts:  I feel things that I wish I didn’t. I want to fight these feelings; I am so damaged and I can’t burden him with my mess.
He deserves better; he deserves normal.

Daniela’s thoughts: The man is getting closer. He’s about fifteen yards away and closing in rapidly. I can’t see his face because his head is lowered as if he’s purposely trying to hide his face.

Daniela’s thoughts: Happiness doesn’t just happen and it’s not always perfect. If you’ve been through hell and found the courage to survive, be happy you had the strength to make it through.
