Welcome to The Extras! A daily dose of all the smaller movie related news, clips and just plain cool stuff that you might have missed!

Following on from yesterday’s title change announcement for Colin Treverrow’s Jurassic World, a new video has appeared that comes from… well, we kind of don’t know. According to initial reports, it was from a scrapped tie-in videogame, and producer Frank Marshall confirmed via Twitter that it’s “not a part of the movie”. But then Hollywood insiders like BadassDigest’s Devin Faraci started saying that it actually is from the film. All I know is that it features dinosaurs eating people, which is more than enough for my pea brain.

Here’s the description given by the original Youtube uploader:

“All I can say is this video was shown as part of Iain McCaig’s presentation at the recent Star Wars convention in Germany (he’s the fantastic concept artist and designer of Darth Maul). I can only presume it was part of a pitch for reigniting the JP movie franchise, if anyone can confirm please let me know. It was apparently shown to Kathleen Kennedy and Steven Spielberg. Mr McCaig actually said “it certainly got Steven interested in dinosaurs again…” I just think is so cool.”

Kim Raver, aka Audrey Raines aka the ex-wife of the guy that Jack Bauer used to demonstrate the interrogatory potential of office furniture is in talks to reprise her role in Fox’s upcoming “event series” 24: Live Another Day. She’ll be joining the previously confirmed Kiefer Sutherland as Bauer, the greatest counter-terrorism agent that pop culture has ever seen, and Mary Lynne Rajskub as his pouty-faced sidekick Chloe O’Brien.

By the time you read this Lourens should be on his way to an involuntary enema courtesy of The Conjuring. If you guys also want to get your scare on a bit earlier than the normal release date, then head on over to Ster Kinekor’s Movie Buffs page, where they got the details on a preview screening happening next Thursday at The Zone in Rosebank. There’s also another early screening happening for Runner Runner later in the month at Cavendish Square, so diarize accordingly.

Everybody knows there’s something about Mary, or rather there’s something about Malkina (that’s Cameron Diaz’s character) as Jeremy Bardem’s guido-haired Reiner finds out in this new clip from Ridley Scott and Cormac McCarthy’s The Counsellor.

Saying that I’m just not a fan of most YA adaptations, is like saying I’m just not a fan of gonorrhea, but I may just be singing a different tune for Chaos Walking. Back to the Future helmer Robert Zemeckis has signed on to direct the first movie based on the Patrick Ness’ bestselling series. And here’s the second kicker, Oscar winning screenwriter Charlie Kaufman (Being John Malkovich, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind) will be penning the screenplay.

Speaking of YA adaptations, director Bill Condon has revealed that he’s put together a supercut of Parts 1 and 2 for  The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn that splices the whole thing into one giant, sparkling, movie. Now I know what to get Darryn for Christmas. If I was ever bothered to get him a Christmas gift, that is.

Er… Please check out this first clip from Alexandra Aja’s twisted horror Horns, and tell me I’m not the only one that thinks that it sounds as if Daniel Radcliffe’s voice just broke.

So you may have heard about all the actors and actresses who were all ixnay on the Fifty Shades of reyGay, or something like that, and clearly the biggest reason for their reluctance was the film’s sexual content. That doesn’t bother Charlie Hunnam, who eventually got the leading role of Christian Grey, seeing as how he used to get freaky with some dudes.

“You know what, I had such a baptism of fire with regards to sexuality on camera at the beginning of my career. I starred in the British Channel Four miniseries Queer as Folk, where I played a young, gay character, and there were some incredible, explicit sex scenes on that show. … Now I am 16 years older and more mature so I don’t anticipate them being too much of a problem. It’s like anything else, just an exciting challenge.”

If you’re that last gut wrenching trailer for Alfonso Cuaron’s Gravity failed to make you feel give you the tingles down in the dingles, then you may just require medical attention. Because you’re dead. But don’t worry, 17  gorgeous new pics for the film have dropped showing off it’s jaw dropping visuals. And Sandra Bullock in a hot pants. Here’s a teaser:

Looks like Dracula’s getting a slight name change, and no, he didn’t take my suggestion of Bob. The Luke Evans led new pic about the origins of the world’s most famous sucker, will now be known as Dracula Untold. Because its the untold story of Dracula, and they wanted to be 10000% percent sure that we got that.

While Matt Damon has already poo pooed the idea of him being Robin to Ben Affleck’s Batman, the internet is a very persistent (and very often stinky) organism who found some way to make the dynamic duo team up. Okay so you may not have Damon in the green undies and pixie boots (sorry, Lourens, I know how much you were holding out for that), but you do have Batman growling about sandwiches and talking back to Robin Williams. Yes, I give you Good Will Hunting: Recut and Remastered.
