We haven’t seen the last of Chris Pratt, dino-hunter. After the reboot of the sci-fi- dinosaur action franchise took in $1.5 billion in global box office recipes, Universal has greenlit a follow-up that will star both Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard. Considering the events of Jurassic World, what is a sequel going to look like? In a previous interview with Wired, director Colin Trevorrow dropped a few clues:

[It will not be] just a bunch of dinosaurs chasing people on an island … What if this went open source? It's almost like InGen is Mac, but what if PC gets their hands on it? What if there are 15 different entities around the world who can make a dinosaur?

Hybrid dino-beast from rival tech companies battling it out around the world? Sounds like a good time. The sequel hits theaters in the summer of 2018. Discuss

A sequel to the 1996 classic Space Jam may finally be happening. This week, NBA star Lebron James’ production company Spring Hill Entertainment announced that they had formed a new partnership with Warner Bros. Coincidently—perhaps—just last month, the studio re-registered its trademarks for the Space Jam franchise.

In a statement about the new partnership, James said,

Connecting with my fans and telling meaningful stories have always been my passion … It's always about connecting with people of all ages and providing unique content they can all enjoy. And I've always loved movies, which makes Warner Bros. the ultimate partner to help us continue to push the envelope. I can't wait to see what we come up with,

It’s unclear if Lebron will be taking his talents to the Monstars or the Tune Squad. Discuss

Emoji is getting dangerously close to jumping the shark. According to Deadline, Sony is producing an animated movie based on Emoji. Anthony Leondis, the director of kid’s films Kung Fu Panda: Secrets of the Masters and Igor, has signed on to the direct the movie. As Deadline notes, one of the most appealing things about the project for Sony is that Emoji’s aren’t owned by anyone, so the studio doesn’t have to pay for rights. There are no details as to the plot, but we’re assuming it will involve a lady salsa dancing, a snake dragon and an elaborate variety of trains. Discuss
