Universal Jurassic World star Chris Pratt has been teasing plot details for Jurassic World 3, sharing that he was “blown away” by what they have planned.

Jurassic World star Chris Pratt has been teasing plot details for Jurassic World 3, sharing that he was “blown away” by what they have planned.

Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard will return as Owen Grady and Claire Dearing respectively, and the film will be directed by Colin Trevorrow, who returns to directing duties after sitting out Fallen Kingdom.

So far details about the upcoming movie have been pretty scarce – but that didn’t stop MTV News from asking Pratt about what’s in store for Jurassic World 3 during a recent interview.

And while Pratt is still keeping pretty coy about the details, the actor did seem to let slip that the movie will feature a time jump and will also expand upon the cloning technology unveiled at the end of the second movie.

“I can’t say anything, but I can tell you when I heard the pitch, I was blown away,” he said.

“I can’t believe that we’re going to make that movie, and I can’t believe they found a way to deliver on the promise of the end of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom.

“Like, ‘Wait what? The island has blown up. The animals are out, we can’t put them back in the box. What are we going to do? How are not only these dinosaurs but this technology moving forward going to affect the planet?’

“We jump forward, and it’s like, ‘Oh! Oh, right! Oh, damn’. It’s going to be pretty epic… You will not be disappointed.”

Jurassic World 3 will hit cinemas on June 11, 2021.

The original six "Avengers" imprinted their hands and signed their names into wet cement. But eagle-eyed fans couldn't help but notice that Hemsworth's last name looked a bit odd.

"Chris Hemsworth absolutely forgot the 't' in his name and (tried) to add it after didn't he?" user @BaWCatGod tweeted, while @saucyloki added: "Did chris hemsworth misspell his last name or tried to squeeze all the letters in so they would fit?"

You be the judge

Hemsworth attended the "Avengers: Endgame" world premiere a night earlier with his wife Elsa Pataky. He shared a picture on Instagram, writing, "This movie’s gonna blow ya socks off."

Netflix Spared As Academy Keeps Oscars Rule Unchanged.

Published

on

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences on Tuesday voted to not change its rule for a film's Oscars eligibility, sparing Netflix after months of pressure to exclude the streaming titan.

Campaigners including Steven Spielberg -- who is set to work with Apple's rival to Netflix -- have suggested that the films produced and released by streaming firms should not be eligible for the Oscars, and should instead be classified as TV content.

But despite the grumbling about the impact of streaming services on the traditional cinema industry, the Academy's board decided to continue with its current rule: a film "must have a minimum seven-day theatrical run in a Los Angeles County commercial theater, with at least three screenings per day for paid admission."

"Motion pictures released in nontheatrical media on or after the first day of their Los Angeles County theatrical qualifying run remain eligible."

Ahead of the board meeting, the Academy had also received a warning from the US Justice Department that any exclusion may fall foul of anti-trust laws.

The battle between traditional cinema and streaming came sharply into focus after Netflix's impressive haul at this year's Academy Awards, including three Oscars for Alfonso Cuaron's "Roma."

Other rivals to Netflix include streaming service Hulu -- which has followed Netflix into original shows including "The Handmaid's Tale" -- and Amazon, which is also producing high-profile content including "Manchester by the Sea".

Many who support the exclusion of streaming content from the Oscars have suggested that streaming at home or on devices does not capture the true experience of cinema, a criticism that appeared to have been acknowledged by the Academy after Tuesday's board meeting.

"We support the theatrical experience as integral to the art of motion pictures, and this weighed heavily in our discussions," Academy President John Bailey said in a statement.

"Our rules currently require theatrical exhibition, and also allow for a broad selection of films to be submitted for Oscars consideration.We plan to further study the profound changes occurring in our industry and continue discussions with our members about these issues."

Despite the hostility, Netflix has attempted to find space and allies within the Hollywood establishment.It joined the Motion Picture Association of America in January.

4 Management Tips Learned From “Game of Thrones”.

Published

on

HBO’s Game of Thrones is back for its highly anticipated Season 8. From Winterfell to Dorne, the characters are busy building their armies, plotting their revenge, and, unbeknownst to some, waiting for the impending horde of White Walkers to arrive on their doorsteps.
Though there are many different types of leaders in Westeros and Essos, each of them can teach us an important lesson in management.

1. Good Managers Need Good Processes.

At a basic level, management can be defined as coordinated action in pursuit of performance. Managers at all levels and functions must design, direct, and shape various organizational processes in order to move the organization towards its goals.

Petyr Baelish (popularly known as Littlefinger) knows this better than perhaps anyone in the Seven Kingdoms. Whether he’s accruing political blackmail as Master of Coin in King’s Landing, arranging strategic marriage proposals, or plotting his way to become Lorde Protector of the Vale, each action he takes is part of a calculated process to move him further along on his quest for power. Though he may have to adjust his strategy along the way, he understands that his success will ultimately rely on a series of carefully coordinated actions with multiple players involved.

2. Each Decision You Make Has Consequences

Decision-making is another managerial process that involves social, political, emotional, and organizational factors, as well as analytics, reason, and fact-based analysis. Good managers must recognize the pros and cons of each option and take into account all of these factors when evaluating which path will result in the best outcome.

Daenerys Targaryen is no stranger to consequences. Liberating an entire region of slaves, wiping out all of the Dothraki Khals in existence, and planning a coup in King’s Landing does not come without repercussions.
Along her journey from exile to Queen of Meereen, she learns that decision making is a delicate balance that requires not only finding the greatest good for all parties involved, but also planning for the future.

3. Learn from Your Mistakes

In order to improve and innovate, managers must continuously reflect and learn from past experiences, both good and bad. By acquiring, interpreting, and applying information from these experiences in the right ways, good managers can improve their processes and implementation skills to drive the organization forward.

And as I’m sure any of the remaining members of House Stark would attest, you must learn from your mistakes (or your father’s, mother’s, and older brother’s mistakes) in order to survive. Perhaps the quickest learner of them all is Arya Stark. 
From reluctant lady-in-training to seasoned assassin, she’s made a huge leap since the start of the series, one that has forced her to grow and leave many aspects of her old life behind in the process.

4. Flexibility is Key

Another important skill in a manager’s toolkit is the ability to remain flexible. Recognizing the need for organizational change stems from multiple sources, both internal and external.
A good manager must identify common dysfunctional habits, understand methods for overcoming such behaviors, and identify factors to help create a receptive environment for change.

Never one to be outwitted, Tyrion Lannister is the master of changing course. At countless points throughout the show, he manages to turn his less than desirable situations into positive ones.
An inexperienced warrior forced to lead the defense at the Battle of Blackwater, he manages to destroy a large part of the enemy’s fleet with minimal causalities of his own men through the creative use of wildfire. Captured by Jorah Mormont on his way to Meereen, Tyrion is delivered to Daenerys as a “gift” to be executed. However, he manages to not only stay alive, but to become a key advisor to Daenerys.
