Weekly Ketchup: Jurassic Park Set to Reopen in Summer of 2014

Summary

This week's Ketchup covered a seven day period in which Hollywood recovered from weeks of almost zero activity with enough newsworthy movie development announcements for two of these columns. Indeed, this writer expects some omissions to be pointed out by commenters, but hey, there's only ten slots available each week. The stories that did make the cut include high profile sequels (Jurassic Park IV, Pirates of the Caribbean 5), a much lower profile sequel (Hot Tub Time Machine 2), remakes (Ben-Hur and possibly Gremlins), and the inevitable Lance Armstrong biopic.

A couple things.... First... DO NOT REMAKE BEN-HUR!!!!! It is a perfect film the way it is!! .... And second I don't see how Anne Hathaway doing Shakespeare is a fresh idea.. I cringe at the thought of seeing that.

As a huge fan of Terminator, I really want them to let the franchise die.

Sarah Connor "You're terminated, fucker" . . . to the whole series. Arnold Schwarzenegger would never let the series die; audiences are so darn GULLIBLE. Terminator 5 all they need is for Skynet to develop a rocket to blast-off a hundred T-1000 Terminators to another planet to begin terraforming proceedings. Skynet will seek to take-over the entire galaxy. Skynet,Ruler of the Universe. and audience members will pay 14.50 a piece to see the nonsense in 3D.

The Gravity news is definitely exciting. Seems like we have been waiting forever on anything regarding it.

all the more reason to REMAKE it! Why remake a bad movie (like Ghoulies and/or Critters and/or Troll and/or LASERBLAST) that nobody remembers when you can remake a good movie with a BUILT-IN AUDIENCE that everyone remembers. again, audiences will fall for anything. and Hollywood is only interested in making MONEY. picture a NEST OF VIPERS: twenty-something year old nihilistic executives sitting-around a 12-thousand pound mahogany conference table "dreaming-up" movies they forgot they saw when their parents put televisions in front of their playpens when they were two years old.

I agree. I don't think it's possible to not like Terminator 2.

You are right. It is, in fact, not possible to dislike T2.

I was only 10 when the first Jurassic Park hit the big screen, but I still have very fond memories of that movie. It's a classic in the "giant monster" genre and will probably never be matched. Jurassic Park 2 and 3 were big disappointments. I only see the fourth one succeed if they bring back the awe and wonder of the first one. That was its biggest strenght: the wonder turning into horror. The others didn't do that.

Terminator 5 is a bad idea. But so were 4 and 3. Cameron wrapped everything up in the second part, everything that came after those first two masterpieces fiddled with the continuity too much. The only way a new Terminator movie "might" work storywise is a complete reboot of the franchise.

How 'bout a TERMINATOR PREQUEL where Skynet sends a Terminator to kill Sarah Conner's parents. SUCKS. I was 22 when Jurassic Park hit the big screen.

I have been waiting for Jurassic Park 4 for a whole decade now. I couldn't be happier. Jurassic Park is my favorite movie of all time and The Lost World: Jurassic Park is (in my opinion) the most underrated sequel of all time, but Jurassic Park 3 is ok...i guess. It's finally here, i can't believe it ! Wether you like it or not, say this to yourself: Whatever the result, it HAS to be better than the thrid one.
This is the only news i needed to hear, and now, i'm a happy man for the rest of the day :D
