Jurassic World Finally Has A Proper T-Rex vs Spinosaurus Rematch

Published

on

The T-Rex and the Spinosaurus fight one last time in Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous’ season 5 finale, a rematch that’s 21 years in the making.

Warning: SPOILERS for Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous Season 5 Finale – “The Nublar Six”

The T-Rex and the Spinosaurus finally get a rematch in Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous‘ season 5 finale, which is also the final episode of the Netflix animated spinoff. In Camp Cretaceous season 5, the six teenage Campers dubbed the Nublar Six fight to save the dinosaurs of Mantah Corp Island. Daniel Kon (Andrew Kushino), Mantah Corp’s CEO and the father of Kenji (Ryan Potter), resorts to murderous means to make sure his business deal with Lewis Dodgson (voiced by Andrew Harrington) and BioSyn to sell technology to remotely control dinosaurs goes through. Kon and his mercenaries also take control of several carnivores, including the Spinosaurus, and sic them on the Nublar Six.

SCREENRANT VIDEO OF THE DAY

The Spinosaurus was introduced in Jurassic Park III as the main dinosaur villain of the film. The Spinosaurus establishes its status as the new apex predator of Isla Sorna AKA Site B when it quickly kills a T-Rex early in the film. The Spino’s introduction was a game-changer for the Jurassic franchise as it ushered in a new era of needing bigger and badder dinosaur villains. Jurassic World followed the Spinosaurus by introducing the idea of hybrid dinosaurs with the Indominus Rex, then the Indoraptor in Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, and the Scorpios Rex in Camp Cretaceous season 3. The Spinosaurus made its canonical return to the franchise in Camp Cretaceous season 4 as one of the prized carnivores on Mantah Corp Island. Further, Camp Cretaceous‘ executive producer Scott Kreamer confirmed this is indeed the same Spinosaurus from Jurassic Park III.


In Camp Cretaceous season 5’s penultimate episode, “The Last Stand,” Mr. Kon and his mercenaries took control of several killer dinos, including the Spinosaurus, the Carnotaurus, Pteranodons, and Velociraptors. Kon’s goons used the Spinosaurus to attack the two T-Rexes on Mantah Corp Island, which the Nublar Six named Big Eatie and Little Eatie. Big Eatie took on all of the super-predators by herself and was overwhelmed. The Spino then clamped its jaws around Big Eatie’s mouth and killed her, repeating how it killed a different T-Rex in Jurassic Park III. However, the Campers eventually destroyed Kon’s handheld controllers, which set the dinos free, including the Spinosaurus, in Camp Cretaceous season 5’s finale.


T-Rex Finally Got Revenge On The Spinosaurus For Jurassic Park III

The Spinosaurus finally got its comeuppance from the T-Rex in Camp Cretaceous season 5’s finale. It turned out that Big Eatie was not dead, merely injured, but she was able to recover. When the Spinosaurus was running amok after its mind control was broken, Little Eatie emerged from the jungle to fight the finned apex predator. She was quickly joined by Big Eatie, who killed one of Mr. Kon’s mercenaries before joining Little Eatie to fight the Spinosaurus. The two T-Rexes finally drove the Spinosaurus to flee for its life in the jungle. Logically, Little Eatie couldn’t have beaten the Spinosaurus by herself so it made sense that Big and Little together were able to drive the bigger dinosaur away. Although the T-Rexes didn’t kill the Spino, it was an act of long-awaited revenge for how the other T-Rex was killed in Jurassic Park III.


Perhaps it would have been even more satisfying if the Spinosaurus was finally killed by the T-Rexes but it was a victory nonetheless. Similarly, the T-Rex needed help from the Therizinosaurus to kill the Gigantosaurus in Jurassic World Dominion, which was also the T-Rex’s revenge for the Giga killing it 65 million years ago. With the advent of so many bigger and more powerful apex predators in the Jurassic franchise, the T-Rex lost its luster as the alpha predator long ago but it’s still arguably the most popular dinosaur. Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous gave the T-Rexes one last win over the Spinosaurus to make up for Jurassic Park III.


All episodes of Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous are available to stream on Netflix.

Reshoots Wrap On Latest Nick Fury MCU Project

Published

on

Samuel L. Jackson announces that reshoots have wrapped on Secret Invasion, the Disney+ MCU series in which he is playing Nick Fury yet again.

Samuel L. Jackson has announced that reshoots are wrapped on his upcoming Marvel Cinematic Universe series Secret Invasion. The Academy Award-nominated actor has been a part of the MCU since the very beginning, appearing as the S.H.I.E.L.D. leader and Avengers founder Nick Fury in the original 2008 Iron Man. He has gone on to reprise the role in more than a dozen other MCU projects, including a voice-only role in the animated series What If…? and a major appearance in 2019’s Captain Marvel under layers of de-aging technology. He is often spotted working with former S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Maria Hill, the character introduced in 2012’s Avengers, played by How I Met Your Mother‘s Cobie Smulders.

SCREENRANT VIDEO OF THE DAY

Both Smulders and Jackson are set to re-team in Secret Invasion, which is currently expected to premiere in early 2023. Part of the upcoming Phase 5 of the MCU, the six-episode series will focus on the former S.H.I.E.L.D. personnel attempting to track down an alien menace after they discover that shape-shifting Skrull have been impersonating various humans across the globe in a clandestine takeover. The cast of the series includes Kingsley Ben-Adir, Olivia Colman, Emilia Clarke, Killian Scott, Christopher McDonald, Carmen Ejogo, and Dermot Mulroney, with appearances by MCU veterans Martin Freeman as Everett Ross, Don Cheadle as War Machine, and Ben Mendelsohn as the Skrull Talos.


On his official Instagram page, Jackson just shared a picture of himself wearing a T-shirt emblazoned with Nick Fury’s face. In his caption, in addition to announcing that he was wearing “pachy-pants” with elephants all over them, he revealed that it is wrap day on Secret Invasion. While Nick Fury “chills,” he will be heading to Broadway to play Doaker Charles in the August Wilson play The Piano Lesson. Check out the post below:

Considering the fact that Jackson is committed to a major role away from the set of Secret Invasion, it is safe to say that the bulk of filming is well and truly done. This spells out good news for fans who are eager to see Marvel’s take on the body snatcher trope. The series has now moved fully into the post-production phase, with the additional footage joining the early footage that has already had the opportunity to be edited.


Now that Secret Invasion has progressed to the next step, it is likely that Marvel will begin the slow drip of promotion for the series. There are quite a few MCU projects coming between now and the release of the series, including She-Hulk: Attorney at Law and Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, so it likely will be some time before an official trailer is released. However, now that everything is in the can, they will have the ability to start sharing production stills and other tidbits from the series while fans wait.

“With a heavy heart, I am saddened to announce Robyn’s passing,” the post began. “However, she is no longer suffering and would want us to remember that and the good memories.” 

Going on to pay tribute to Griggs’ passion, the post continued, “I will never forget how open she was to telling her story, and accepting of me helping her tell it. She wanted to help people and spread the word of her story to do it. I was honored to do so.”

The soap star had previously been open about her diagnosis with cervical cancer in 2020, last month she shared that she had four new tumors.

Julia Garner’s Dual ‘Ozark’ and ‘Inventing Anna’ Nominations Solidify Her Status as ‘Emmy Catnip’

Published

on


When it comes to turning Emmy nominations into Emmy wins, Julia Garner is so far batting a thousand. The actor was nominated in 2019 and 2020 in the supporting actress in a drama series category for “Ozark” — and she won both times.

Now, Garner has doubled her Emmy nominations tally to four, picking up another supporting actress nod for the final season of “Ozark” and also landing one for her “Inventing Anna” role, as lead actress in a limited or anthology series or movie.

Given her “Ozark” success, that nomination wasn’t a shock. But the success of “Inventing Anna” at the Emmys — including in the key limited or anthology series category — was a bit of a surprise, especially given the expectation that another Netflix series, “Maid,” would make the cut.

Yet in hindsight, it shouldn’t have been a surprise at all. By now it’s clear that Julia Garner should be added to the list of awards catnip — the roster of stars that continue to amaze on screen, and whose work has not gone unnoticed by industry voters. Think of other awards favorites like Olivia Colman or Sarah Paulson (who returns to the Emmy table this year with “Impeachment: American Crime Story,” her eighth nomination).

Garner has clearly impressed over the years on “Ozark” as Ruth Langmore, but has also shown her range in recent years via “Waco,” “The Americans,” “Dirty John” and now, “Inventing Anna.”

In playing socialite huckster Anna Delvey, Garner had to perfect a bizarre, one-of-a-kind accent while playing a character whose demeanor is more or less bored psychopath. Shondaland’s Betsy Beers told me why they felt so fortunate to land Garner for the role.

“She is perfect because she can do anything and is just an astoundingly talented actress,” Beers says. “She, like Anna, is a chameleon, and has the uncanny ability to truly become the character she is playing. She dug into the research, and watching her become Anna was a joy to behold. And perfecting that accent was no easy task!”

In a year boasting some of the best performers and performances in recent memories, nearly every Emmy category is super-competitive. And that especially goes for Garner’s fields; In supporting drama actress, she’s up against an overdue nod for Rhea Seehorn (“Better Call Saul”), two stars from the hottest show on TV (“Severance’s” Sarah Snook and J. Smith-Cameron), a nominee looking to make history (“Squid Game” star Jung Ho-yeon), another double nominee in Sydney Sweeney (“Euphoria”) and two icons: Christina Ricci (“Yellowjackets”) and Patricia Arquette (“Severance”).

The lead actress in a limited series field is also stacked, with Paulson, Toni Collette (“The Staircase”), Lily James (“Pam & Tommy”), Margaret Qualley (“Maid”) and Amanda Seyfried (“The Dropout”).

But never count the awards catnip out. Garner is next set to star as Madonna in a biopic on the legendary performer, and also is busy getting into the production game — signing a deal with Marty Adelstein and Becky Clements’ Tomorrow Studios. When we broke news of Garner’s next project, the international jewel heist mystery “Balabusta,” without knowing much more about it, I just know I need to see it.

Adelstein told me how the Garner deal is “probably one of the best we’ve ever made.” Added Clements: “She is so bright, so prolific… oh my goodness, that woman is going to be an Oscar winner.”
