‘Star Wars’ & ‘Lost’ Deleted Scenes, ‘Jurassic Park 4’ and ‘The Dark Knight Rises’

When Comic-Con rolls around in San Diego each summer, it reaps some of the biggest movie news of the year. Tops on my list so far, this trailer of deleted scenes from the Original Trilogy of Star Wars. I have seen clips of some of it, but a few scenes like Han in the Endor bunker, R2-D2 being chased by a Wampa and parts of the sandstorm are definitely new. Check it out and thanks to Comingsoon.net for the imbed.

This next clip started a fake fight between “Lost” producers Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse this week on Twitter. The pair went back and forth arguing over its release to hype things up. Then dressed as “Star Wars” characters, the pair answered questions about the show from fans at Comic Con. Finally, they unveiled this scene.

Obviously, it’s a joke. I think it’s the producers way of apologizing for their own work or at least poking fun at their own abstract explanation of all things mystical island. Kind of rings a little hollow for me. If they’ve been standing behind what they did with the show for this long, seems a little wrong to go back on it now. Or maybe I just didn’t think it was that funny.

It seems a fourth “Jurassic Park” movie is just a few years away. Although, I’m not sure I really care that much. The original was so groundbreaking because audiences had never seen anything like it before. Plus, the story was relatively strong with the kids probably being the most annoying part. However, “Lost World” and the third installment were less than stellar. Going for too much bang and too little story development.

Either way, the director of the first two films, Steven Spielberg told audiences at Comic-Con,

We have a story. We have a writer working on the script, and I think we will see a ‘Jurassic IV’ in our foreseeable future, probably in the next two or three years.”

And we got our first look at one of the most anticipated movies of 2012 this week. The teaser for “The Dark Knight Rises” was released. It doesn’t show a whole heck of a lot, but judging from the clip, Batman has gone into hiding and a new villain, Bane, is tearing apart Gotham City. And putting Commissioner Gordon (Gary Oldman) in the hospital. I’ve never been a big fan of the character Bane, but in Christopher Nolan we trust, right? I thought casting Heath Ledger as the Joker was a mistake before seeing the final product. I could not have been more wrong on that one. Anyway, take a look.

More Dinos Running Wild…

There has been talk of a fourth installment in the Jurassic Park series for a long time now, but it sounds like things are finally getting serious. Another trilogy serious. Joe Johnston (director of JP 3) recently told Boxoffice.com JP 4 is definitely happening and if it’s successful could spawn two more. Here’s part of what he had to say:

“Well, there is going to be a Jurassic Park IV. And it’s going to be unlike anything you’ve seen. It breaks away from the first three—it’s essentially the beginning of the second Jurassic Park trilogy. It’s going to be done in a completely different way. That’s pretty much all I can tell you.”

I just hope when he says “completely different way” he doesn’t mean an army of human-like raptors attacking with guns. First, I think I’m done with the whole raptor storyline and two, this type of storyline was rumored years ago and would be well…just stupid.  Maybe it can be a prequel and Tobey Maguire can play a young Dr. Alan Grant, he’s free these days.
