Do you hear that? That stomp, stomp, stomping sound currently rippling water glasses worldwide? It’s the sound of the summer’s biggest movie heading right this way – a gigantic dinosaur adventure 65 million (and 29) years in the making. Get ready for Jurassic World Dominion, the final chapter of the Jurassic World trilogy, and the sixth instalment in the series that brought prehistoric thrills back to life and onto the big screen. This time, it’s not just the dinosaurs and the likes of Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard who are back – the original Jurassic Park trio of Sam Neill, Laura Dern and Jeff Goldblum are reunited and along for the ride too in a Jurassic adventure like no other. Hold onto your butts.

Omar Sy & Kerry Washington to star in Joe Carnahan action
Lupin actor Omar Sy will co-star alongside Kerry Washington (Scandal) in Shadow Force, an upcoming action-thriller from director Joe Carnahan. The plot focuses on an estranged couple with a bounty on their heads who must go on the run with their son to avoid their former employer, a shadow ops unit sent to kill them.
Carnahan co-wrote the screenplay with Leon Chills. Stephen “Dr.” Love is producing Shadow Force through Made with Love Media. Washington and Pilar Savone produce through Washington’s Simpson Street label and Sterling K. Brown through his Indian Meadows Productions.
