From YahooTV: Jurassic World is apparently about to take over the world... box office.
From Collider: Pixar has apparently replaced the entire voice cast (except maybe one actor) of The Good Dinosaur, which is due in December 2015.
From Variety: The great British actor, Christopher Lee, died on Sunday, June 7, 2015 at the age of 93. He is probably best known as the actor who revitalized Dracula in the 1958, Horror of Dracula. He was the 20th Century's second most famous screen Dracula.
Young fans will know him for his appearances in The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit films. He was a James Bond villain in The Man with the Golden Gun. He was "Count Dooku" in the second and third films of Star Wars prequel trilogy. He was a close friend of one of my favorite actors, Peter Cushing (who died in 1994). I believe that they are reunited.
From IMDb: Christopher Lee: A Life in Pictures.
From THR: Apparently, Sony still wants "Bad Boys 3." Joe Carnahan is circling to work on the script and to direct. Michael Bay directed the first two films in the series.
From THR: The new comedy, Spy, wins the 6/5 to 6/7/2015 weekend box office with an estimated take of $30 million. The Paul Reig film stars Melissa McCarthy.
From CinemaBlend: J.K. Rowling offers clues about an American wizarding school.
