All dino hell breaks loose in the official trailer for Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous. Arriving on Netflix later this month, the new animated series takes place during the events of the first Jurassic World movie, but offers viewers a different POV from the other side of Isla Nublar, where the Masrani Corporation has established an exclusive summer camp. When the Indominus Rex breaks out of containment and throws the adults into a disorganized frenzy, the young campers will have to rely on each other to make it out alive.
The show’s voice cast includes: Paul-Mikél Williams as Darius; Jenna Ortega as Brooklynn; Ryan Potter as Kenji; Raini Rodriguez as Sammy; Sean Giambrone as Ben; Kausar Mohammed as Yaz; Jameela Jamil as Roxie; and Glen Powell as Dave.
Watch the latest trailer now:
Above anything else, this footage captures the child-like awe and wonder of what it would be like to attend a camp with resurrected dinosaurs. It’s a sensation that takes us back to the moment in Jurassic Park when Alan Grant and Ellie Sattler first lay their eyes on a living, breathing Brachiosaurus.
Developed for television by Zack Stentz, the project is executive produced by Colin Trevorrow, Steven Spielberg, and Frank Marshall. Trevorrow is currently filming Jurassic World: Dominion (slated to hit theaters next summer) in Europe. He co-wrote the film’s screenplay with Emily Carmichael.
Camp Cretaceous arrives on Netflix Friday, Sep. 18.
During an interview with SiriusXM’s Jess Cagle Monday, director Peyton Reed revealed that the third Ant-Man film “is going to be a much bigger [and] more sprawling movie than the first two.” The specific use of the word “bigger” is rather ironic for a Marvel hero who is famous for shrinking down to microscopic size. But hey, he can also grow into Giant-Man, so there’s that. Nevertheless, it’ll be interesting to see what happens to Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) in the aftermath of Avengers: Endgame.
Reed went on to say that the trilogy capper — written by Rick and Morty veteran Jeff Loveness — is “going to have a very different visual template,” which may indicate some kind of adventure in the trippy Quantum Realm that helped the Avengers defeat Thanos.
While we don’t know when Ant-Man 3 (confirmed last November) is scheduled to arrive in theaters, we do know that Marvel Studios hopes to kick off production in January 2021. In the meantime, fans will be able to see more of Reed’s directorial work in Season 2 of The Mandalorian. The live-action Star Wars series returns to Disney+ sometime in October.
Reed also remembered the late Chadwick Boseman, stating: “Like everyone else, I was struck by what a serious, amazing guy he was. I can’t imagine a better director, Ryan Coogler, and a better actor, Chadwick Boseman, combining to make that movie. Man, he is going to be missed.”

Empire Magazine is gearing up for the release of the first Dune trailer (expected to drop in a few days) with two new production stills from Denis Villeneuve’s two-part sci-fi epic. The images feature Duke Leto (Oscar Isaac), Lady Jessica (Rebecca Ferguson), and Stilgar (Javier Bardem).
“It’s about the destiny of a people, and the different way that cultures have dominated other ones,” Isaac told the publication. “How do a people respond when it’s at the tipping point, when enough is enough, when they’re exploited? All those things are things we’re seeing around the world right now.”
Leto and Jessica are the parents of Paul Atreides (Timothée Chalamet), a young noble who must assume leadership after his family is betrayed. In updating the source material for 2020, Villeneuve “didn’t want Lady Jessica to be an expensive extra. Something I deeply love in the book is that there was a strong balance between the masculine power and feminine power.”
Stilgar, on the other hand, is the leader of the Fremen, a band of people living in the lawless outskirts of the desert planet known as Arrakis (aka Dune).
Dune lands in theaters Friday, Dec. 18. No release date has been announced for Part II yet. Fans of Frank Herbert will be able to derive some spicy (get it?) insights about the first installment when Empire’s new issue goes on sale this Thursday. Last week, the magazine gave us our first look at the massive and deadly sandworms that dwell beneath the shifting sands of Arrakis.
