The choice is a very unconventional one. It’s Colin Trevorrow, whose only previous film is the low-budget Safety Not Guaranteed. Didn’t see that one coming. I was expecting Joe Johnston to take the helm again, not somebody with only one small movie to his credit.
One might say that Trevorrow is a dark horse. And so, to return to our usual subject matter, here’s another dark horse candidate, James K. Polk.
- International audiences for Spielberg’s Lincoln will see a slightly different opening sequence to provide context for viewers who might not be as familiar with American history. Maybe some additional background would’ve been a good idea for American moviegoers, too; Black Hawk Down and Argo both needed historical prologues even though the events in question happened during the lifetimes of many of the people watching the films.

- That high-pitched, ecstatic shrieking sound you heard? That was me: We now have a trailer for the twentieth anniversary 3D re-release of Jurassic Park and an official release date for JP4.

Amen, and amen.
