Jurassic World

Jurassic World: A new photo from Jurassic World gives a peek -- through smoke -- at a new dinosaur that will be featured in the movie, rumbling toward theaters on June 12. The beast is identified as Indominus Rex, described as "the most fearsome dinosaur ever to be displayed at Jurassic World." Concept art for its paddock is presented below. We may get a closer look when the next trailer debuts on Sunday during the Super Bowl. [Screen Crush]

Star Wars: The Force Awakens

Star Wars: We know Star Wars: The Force Awakens will open in theaters on December 18, to be followed by the first spin-off movie on December 16, 2016. Now we have confirmation from Bob Iger, Disney chairman and CEO, that the second and third installments of the new trilogy will be released in 2017 and 2019. That's a tighter turnaround than the first two trilogies, which were released three years apart, but with spin-off movies added to the schedule, it ensures that new Star Wars movies will become an annual tradition.

Cowboy Ninja Cowboy

Cowboy Ninja Viking: Back in November, Chris Pratt was set to star in Cowboy Ninja Viking as a man "with multiple personalities who’s transformed into an assassin." But who would direct? Hot off the indie action flick John Wick, starring Keanu Reeves as a hit man who comes out of retirement in search of revenge, the directing team of David Leitch and Chad Strahelski is under consideration to helm the graphic-novel adaptation.

Madame Bovary

Madame Bovary Trailer: Mia Wasikowska stars in a new version of the classic love story Madame Bovary. She plays a young married woman who is "tempted by passion," as a new trailer makes clear. Ezra Miller, Paul Giamatti and Rhys Ifans also star; the movie will arrive in theaters this summer. [MovieClips]
