Bryce Dallas Howard Set To Direct/Produce ‘Flight Of The Navigator’ Reboot For Disney+

Another reboot in the making? You got it! Disney Studios is developing a reimagining of its 1986 sci-fi live action feature film Flight of the Navigator, but this time with a female lead.

Bryce Dallas Howard is attached to direct/produce the film, which is going to be featured on Disney+

The original movie, starring Joey Cramer, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Veronica Cartwright, follows a boy who travels eight years into the future from 1978 and has an adventure with an intelligent, wisecracking alien ship, named Max.

The movie was moderately successful and later became a cult classic. Back in September of 2017, Disney announced they were putting together a reboot, and it looks like now it’s finally coming together.

The project reteams Howard with Disney+ as a director, the multi-hyphenate having already helmed two episodes of Star Wars: The Mandalorian (Chapter 4 ‘The Sanctuary’ and Chapter 11 ‘The Heiress’), and an episode of the upcoming spinoff series, The Book of Boba Fett. 

Howard seems to be following in her father’s footsteps. Starting out as an actor, then slowly transitioning to directing and producing.

No word on when production is scheduled to begin, but we’ll keep you posted.

Get Your First Look At Matthew McConaughey And Edgar Ramirez In ‘Gold’ (PHOTO)

Before you worry that Kate Hudson and Matthew McConaughey are teaming up again to create a sequel to Fool’s Gold, we should make it clear that’s not happening.

For those who don’t know, Mr. McConaughey is playing Kenny Wells in the upcoming film Gold, which is being directed by Stephen Gaghan, the writer behind Traffic. It’s his first feature film in several years, so everyone is excited to see it.

Edgar Ramirez also stars in the movie, which follows the struggling businessman Kenny Wells as he teams up with doomed geologist, Michael Acosta, to find gold in the Indonesian jungle. Bryce Dallas Howard and Corey Stoll also star in the film.

The “first look” photo you see below doesn’t really tell us much of anything. The only actors in the shot are Matthew and Edgar. We’ll have to wait until more photos (or the trailer!) are released to learn more about the movie. But honestly, I am already excited to watch it. McConaughey and Ramirez are two of the more talented actors in the business right now.

Before this film gets a release in fall of 2016, you can catch McConaughey in The Free State of Jones, which is scheduled to hit theaters March, 11 2016. You can catch Ramirez in the Jennifer Lawrence/David O. Russell film Joy this Christmas.

‘Jurassic World’ Sequel Lands 2018 Release Date, Chris Pratt And Bryce Dallas Howard Will Return!


We knew it was coming. Just six weeks after its release, Jurassic World is already the third-highest grossing film of all-time. When a film is that successful at the box office, you know it’s going to get a sequel.

Universal Pictures announced earlier this week that the next Jurassic World film will hit theaters June 22, 2018. And yes, both Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard will be returning, which means there will be more eye candy for everyone.

Director Colin Trevorrow will reportedly return to co-write the screenplay with Derek Connolly; however, he’s not expected to direct the sequel. Steven Spielberg will jump in as executive producer through his Amblin Entertainment banner.

This means the search is on for a new director, which actually makes this process more exciting. Trevorrow claims hiring a new director will give the sequel its own unique “flavor.” And we agree with him. Changing things up like this is the only way to keep a franchise fresh.

As always, we will keep you posted. One thing we know for sure? Chris Pratt is loving life right now. Guardians of the Galaxy AND Jurassic World?

Movie Review: Jurassic World – People Will Never, Ever Get Sick Of Watching Dinosaurs Eat People


Oh, when oh when will we learn? Look, there’s never a good reason to bring giant, carnivorous animals back. What do the scientists in Jurassic anything keep saying to themselves?

“What’s the worst that could happen? So maybe they could break free and devour a school bus full of kids. That’s not going to happen. Except that it’s already happened…three times. Maybe we should try again anyway, just to be sure.”

That’s literally what has to be going through these scientist’s heads, but we’re supposed to believe that in order to advance the plot. What’s the plot? Here’s my best synopsis. Forgive me for any spoilers.

The dinosaurs break free and eat people.

Yes, there’s the same cardboard cutout cast. Harried career woman, idealistic guy, scientist predicting doom, you know, the regulars. They give them inane dialog and spew out lots of info dumps. They try to cram in as many clichés as possible and the entire plot is propelled by coincidence or people being idiots, or both.

I will give them this. Jurassic World does not hold itself back, despite how implausible the plot. It knows where it shines and where it shines is the special effects.

Scene from Jurassic World


Those will kind of blow your mind. They’re the kind where, even though you know something is going to happen, you flinch anyway. The dinosaurs are so well done, I kind of suspected Universal of really cloning them. They’ve even gotten them right down to that eerie intelligence. The kind where you know, just know, they’re thinking about eating someone.

Then they do and it erupts into almost an artistic orgy of violence. Of course, they keep it PG-13, but what’s America’s standard for PG-13? My guess would be you’re not allowed to film really killing someone but anything else goes. Just don’t let them see any nipple.

For concerned parents, this movie is nipple free…unless you’re talking about dinosaur nipples. I don’t know what those look like.

I forgave Jurassic World for their implausible plot. This is a rarity for me, but in this case, following the formula actually worked. They’ve hit the nail on the head by following one simple, but genius theory.

People will never, ever get sick of watching dinosaurs eat people.

So I give this movie five stars on special effects alone. The plot is terrible. The characters are awful and the best actors, by far, are the dinosaurs. Don’t try to follow the plot or any of the side stories. Just open your mind to the stunning visuals and tune out for an hour and a half.

Yes, I know this movie was only made to cash in on the massive success of the others. It’s absolutely a shameless cash grab. An attempt to wring more money out of the franchise.

But it worked. Even with everyone knowing why, it’s still working. Jurassic World pulled in $208 million on its opening weekend. Those shameless grifters at Universal got me again.

So why am I not angry? Because Universal delivered the thing I wanted. They delivered dinosaurs eating people.

Who could ask for anything more?
