Jurassic Park

Jurassic Park: Get out your credit card(s). A large prop from Steven Spielberg's Jurassic Park is up for auction -- and the bidding is already up to $99,990. The prop is the velociraptor cage that figured so prominently in the violent opening scene of the movie; a full-sized velociraptor prop (not used in the movie) is included. If you win the auction, only local pickup in the Los Angeles area is offered; it weighs upward of 700 to 1,000 pounds. The next film in the dinosaur series, Jurassic World, is heading to theaters on June 12, 2015. [eBay via The Guardian]

King Arthur: Warner Bros. wants to transform the King Arthur legend into a film franchise spanning six films, and it wants director Guy Ritchie to get things started. It's the latest King Arthur project to be considered by Warner Bros.; its previous effort got bogged down over budget issues. Ritchie had his own King Arthur film in development, which was in competition with the Warner Bros. project at the time, so at least we know he's interested in telling the story again. [Deadline]

Movie Trailers: The National Associaton of Theaters Owners wants movie trailers to be shorter -- no more than two minutes, rather than the now-standard two-and-a-half minutes -- and also wants the trailers to be shown no more than five months ahead of release. The guidelines are voluntary and two annual exceptions per distributor are allowed. Theater owners are often paid to play trailers, and many already play seven or eight before the movie starts, so there's concern that shorter trailers will just lead to more of them being shown. [The Hollywood Reporter]

The Zero Theorem Trailer: The first official trailer for Terry Gilliam's wild fantasy Zero Theorem has arrived. Christoph Waltz plays a computer programmer "befuddled by the world around him." Melanie Thierry and David Thewlis also star. The visually dazzling movie will open in the U.K. on March 14, though we're still waiting to hear when we'll get to see it in the U.S. [Empire]
