If not for its $1.6 billion in box office takings, Jurassic World can be remembered for 3 things: 1) Bryce Dallas Howard’s ridiculous running around in high heels, 2) its strong sense of nostalgia (that Jurassic Park music, such feels!), and 3) a severe lack of Jeff Goldblum.
Goldblum co-starred in 1993’s Jurassic Park and the 1997 sequel The Lost World: Jurassic Park as Dr. Ian Malcolm, a know-it-all mathematician who specializes in a branch of mathematics known as “Chaos Theory.” Goldblum brought a unique quirk and charm to that role, what with his fine-tuned vocal delivery, mannerisms, and that distinct “Hahahrawrrahaha” laugh.The Jurassic Park franchise is always better with a little Golblum in it.
Now, 20 years later, this national treasure is heading back to the franchise that made him famous. (more…)
Taika Waititi‘s Thor: Ragnarok recently stormed the Internet with a new trailer that quickly shot the feature to the forefront of everyone’s minds as the trailer became the fasted viewed in the history of Marvel films. While everyone had questions, one that slipped many people’s minds, except those that are primarily comic book fans, why isn’t Jeff Goldblum‘s Grandmaster blue like in the comics? Waititi recently answered that question. (more…)
Thor: Ragnarok‘s casting thus far has been a treat to the fans, having included newcomer fan favorites like Karl Urban (Lord of the Rings, Dredd, Star Trek Beyond), Cate Blanchett (Lord of the Rings, The Aviator, Babel), and of course, Jeff Goldblum (Jurassic Park, Independence Day, The Fly); also returning will be Chris Hemsworth (Thor himself, of course), Mark Ruffalo (as Dr. Bruce Banner/The Hulk) and Tom Hiddleston (as beloved villain Loki). Recently, another actor let slip that he spent some time on the set film’s Australian set, and it’s setting up a nice reunion.
There are very few truly great wonders of the world and gosh darn it if Jeff Goldblum isn’t one of them. Man hasn’t done anything relevant since his Jurassic Park days and that movie about the aliens where team USA saves the world..what was it called, oh yea, Independence Day. The man has a unique quirk and charm that has made him into an everlasting national treasure. Why take this here recent viral video for the upcoming Independence Day sequel (a movie many have said was made 20 years too late) as an example of the fine-tuned vocal delivery, mannerisms, and that distinct “Hahahrawrrahaha” laugh that make Goldblum pop culture gold.
In the video, Earth Space Defense head David Levinson (Goldblum’s character in Independence Day) takes it upon himself to debunk one of the surreal rumors about the War of 1996. You know, the one that he and actor Jeff Goldblum are the same person. (more…)
‘Thor: Ragnarok’ is still nearly a year-and-a-half before it’s released and we already have been receiving great info for this third film in the Thor franchise. It’s been almost two weeks since the confirmation of several additions to the cast, including Cate Blanchett (Hela), Jeff Goldblum (Grandmaster), Karl Urban (Skurge), Tessa Thompson (Valkyrie) and Mark Ruffalo’s Bruce Banner/The Hulk confirmed to appear. That right there is a great indicator that this film will be more of a team-up film than a solo story. Now we are hearing that this movie has some great surprises lined up for fans that will further establish the Marvel Cinematic Universe. (more…)

Jeff Goldblum took to his Facebook page to bring us the first teaser for IDR, Independence Day Resurgence. While it doesn’t actually show any film from the production, it does set a worrisome tone for the fate of Humanity in the film. The real question is what comes next? (more…)
There’s an old saying about the sometimes impossibly long development process in Hollywood, a movie isn’t really in production until it delivers its first piece of official marketing. Actually, I made that up. But it’s been almost 20 years since Independence Day first hit theaters, and after numerous fits and starts over the years, when it comes to expectations for a sequel, we have to see it to believe it. Well, now you can see it. Above and below. In a late night release, 20th Century Fox is dropping its first pieces of art work for Independence Day 2, or make that Independence Day Resurgence. (more…)
After the shellacking Earth took in Independence Day, one would expect that if the aliens ever returned to Earth, they would bring even bigger guns which would in turn raise the stakes in both destruction and extinction. Although I didn’t think that the bar could be raised any higher than the extinction of the human race. I mean OK, they could kill us all, gather DNA and clone us all and destroy us again in an even more horrible manner than the first time, but isn’t that first time really enough? It looks like director Roland Emmerich is ready to go all out when it comes to global destruction. (more…)
It’s happening! It’s really happening! I didn’t believe it until I saw the picture below, but after nearly 20 years of watching, and waiting, and discussion, and rumor, filming on Independence Day 2 is finally underway. Picking up some 20 years after the original, ID4-2 will reunite many members of the cast of the first film with an eager group of brand new actors in order to fight the next wave of alien scum ready to invade the Earth. Obviously, spoilers and details are scarce in what’s actually a celebratory reunion picture of producer Dean Devlin and his star Jeff Goldblum, but for those that cynically thought this day would never come, it’s proof: This is actually happening!
