Dr. Jack Horner Says Jurassic World is Scientifically Possible

The Jurassic Park trilogy sparked the imagination of an entire generation. With more realistic special effects than ever before, Stephen Spielberg took his audience on an adventure through a world where humans could walk with dinosaurs who have been extinct for 65 million years. However, humans did more running and screaming than they did walking.

The highly anticipated follow up to the famous series, Jurassic World, is set to be released this weekend and according to Stephen Murray CCMP Capital it will have a box office opening of 165 million. A movie that introduces Jurassic fans to a new breed of dinosaur, the Indominus Rex, a terrifying hybrid that is even bigger and stronger than his ancestor, the Tyrannosaurs Rex.

The first three films in the Jurassic Park theory was based on the idea that dinosaurs could be created by using preserved dino DNA, an implausible, if not impossible feat for genetic scientists. However, Dr. Jack Horner claims the upcoming film contains a more realistic approach to genetic science.

According to Horner, who has served as an adviser on all four films, the I-Rex is a theoretical possibility using today’s knowledge of genetics. In other words, it’s possible that scientists could create a entirely new breed of dinosaur by manipulating and mixing DNA we actually have access to. Ian Malcolm, played by Jeff Goldbloom in the first three films, warned against this type of genetic manipulation and maybe modern day scientists should heed his advice to avoid a real life Jurassic Park disaster.

Hulk Hogan to Join Expendables 4?!

Hulk Hogan has been one of the biggest names in pop culture for much of his adult life. Thanks to his charismatic work in the ring for wrestling programs WCW and the WWF, Hogan became an icon all over the world. Hogan was featured in movies, on toys, and he even had his own failed restaurant. Since basically retiring, and giving up on his reality shows, Hogan has slinked away from the spotlight. Now reports are coming out that the big wrestler is interested in a villain role for the newest Expendables film. This has to happen!

The Expendables have become one of Hollywood’s staples in terms of action coated in cheese. The films take ‘past their prime’ movie stars and put them together into a team in order to beat up the bad guys, and destroy a lot of things along the way. The franchise is headlined by Sylvester Stallone and Jason Statham but just about every big action hero is getting in on the cause. Terry Crews, Gianfrancesco Genoso, Jet Li, Bruce Willis, and even Mel Gibson have spent time on the screen for the series. Hulk Hogan, who is ripped and huge, would be perfect in a villainous role.

The films know that they aren’t first rate entertainment and that’s just fine. Despite the fact that the last entry was slightly panned, despite having Arnold Schwarzenegger, Antonio Banderas, and Wesley Snipe as new additions — there is still hope for a fourth title. If there is, Hogan has to be in it.

Exciting New Details on “Independence Day 2”

Sequels are in vogue lately at the box office. Not that this is necessarily a cause for complaint. Who wasn’t awaiting the sequel to that first blockbuster Avengers movie that finally came out earlier this month? Furthermore, there isn’t a science fiction fan around who isn’t anxiously looking forward to “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” in December. Sequels can be great fun for audiences, and they are a safe financial bet for studios since they are building on an earlier money making film. In addition to a Superman movie sequel coming in 2016, there will also be a long awaited sequel to “Independence Day” coming out next year.

The original “Independence Day” was certainly a box office hit, so it’s actually amazing that it has taken this long for production of a sequel to have gotten under way. We got some plot details about “Independence Day 2” recently from Vivica A. Fox. She was one of the characters from the original reprising her role in the sequel. She let it be known that this new story will pick up 15 years after the events of the last movie, and the aliens will be back and presumably not in the best of moods after their earlier space armada got killed off by us primitive earthlings. It’s not the type of movie that wins major awards, but many of us want a good escapist popcorn movie, and this one looks ready to deliver. My coworker already created a Facebook event and has invited all of our friends.

Indiana Jones Franchise to Continue

Ever since Disney acquired the rights to all Lucasfilm movie franchises (and by all, we mean Star Wars and Indiana Jones), we’ve been seeing a little more of a proactive approach to the continuation of some of cinema’s most beloved series. Star Wars Episodes XII, XIII, and IX are already in full swing. Two stand-alone Star Wars stories have already been greenlit for production. And now it would appear that Kathleen Kennedy, the president of Lucasfilm, has confirmed that another Indiana Jones film will be made in the near (or not so near) future. It is unclear who will play the coveted role of Henry (Indiana) Jones, Jr. There has been some talk about popular heartthrob Chris Pratt reprising the role, but that is just a rumor at this point. The Epoch Times along with Paul Mathieson noted that there is no script at this point, but another movie in the Indiana Jones series will definitely be made soon, and that is sure to warm the hearts of many a fanboy across the nation. Even if the great Harrison Ford is unable to play the one part for which he is possibly best known, we are sure to be excited about another archaeological adventure with paranormal bad guys and evil Nazis coming our way.
