JURASSIC WORLD: FALLEN KINGDOM IN NEW BRAUNFELS

Watching a great movie can be an escape, almost a mini-vacation where the stress of your day melts away.  When you catch a movie under the night sky at Stars and Stripes Drive-in Theater the experience is unforgettable.

One movie you should watch out for is the Jurassic world: Fallen Kingdom

The sensation of watching dinosaurs devour people does not get old, hence the sequel to the 2015 classical action – Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom. The movie has several dinosaur actions and an erupting volcano.

Two years after the daring dinosaurs were set free and caused the lavish resort park to shut down, a volcano endangered the island, including the primordial creatures living there.

Owen, the Raptor trainer, played by Chris Pratt and Claire, the previous park manager played by Bryce Dallas Howard journeyed to the island in order to save the dinosaurs from extinction. However, they found out that the menace is bigger than they imagined

Jurassic World movie was more intense and scarier than the original films, and Jurassic World: fallen kingdom will pick up from where it stopped. There will be scenes of dangers, romance, as well as strong language.

In the movie, Owen began his journey in search of his raptor and uncovered a plot that will disrupt the planet's natural order.

Off the island

The movies show dinosaurs in different places including a kid's bedroom, on a roof, and in direct confrontation with a lion. The movie will also feature the return of Jeff Goldblum to the movie franchise.

The message

The movie will entertain and educate simultaneously. The sequel (Fallen kingdom) will include a message. According to Trevorrow (the director), the dinosaurs will represent the treatment most animals receive the medical experimentation, the abuse, and the use of animals.

While these themes are not completely new to the movie franchise, Jurassic World will explore other new avenues.

Don't expect to see many dinosaurs running after people on an island. Jurassic World: fallen kingdom will move from Isla Nublar to the world of Jurassic Park.

Ending

At the end of the movie, the audience will want more. Earlier Jurassic Park films had a clear conclusive ending, which was quite episodic.

There are diverse interesting possibilities; hence, the inventive minds behind Jurassic World have explored them.

Whatever reason that drives us to the theater in New Braunfels; this movie will leave you happier and merrier.

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom opens June 21st 2018. Click here for tickets.

SOLO: A STAR WARS STORY IN NEW BRAUNFELS

Yes, another standalone Star Wars movie will hit the theatre soon! The story focuses on an infamous smuggler, Han Solo, and features how he met Lando Calrissian and Chewbacca during his criminal activities and his time at the Imperial Academy.

The movie brings a classic twist to the main story of a rogue in the Star Wars cosmos, channeling a western style and fun to a far away galaxy.

Before going to the movie theaters in New Braunfels to see Solo: A Star Wars Story, here are some things you must know.

Solo is set 4 years before the happenings of Star Wars: Episode IV and it will include the early years of Han Solo. The movie will indicate why Han is an unkempt-looking herder. Also, Solo's backstory shows that he was nurtured by space nomads and he doesn't know his real family.

•    Popular faces in Star Wars movies are not going away anytime soon

Apart from the popular British actors, the first Star Wars trilogy made use of virtual unknowns in major roles. However, we have seen actors like Laura Dern, Forest Whitaker, Benicio Del Toro, thrown abruptly into an imperial entanglement, even though the prequels had Liam Neeson and Samuel L Jackson wearing the Jedi garb.

The latest popular character to appear in the movie for the first time is Han Solo’s devious mentor (Beckett) played by Woody Harrelson.

•    Emilia Clarke’s Imperial looks

The lavish, imposing cloak worn by Emilia Clarke in the movie is what high-ranking empire members in Star Wars movies wear. Emilia Clarke might be a spy who wants to infiltrate the forces of Emperor Palpatine with Han's help.

•    Han's home planet

Han lost his family at an early age and resulted to stealing in order survive. He doesn't talk about his home planet of Corellia, however, we will get to see more of his home planet in this movie.

•    Millennium Falcon

From the Solo trailers, you may see that the Millennium Falcon is quite different. In the previous movies, Rey and Luke saw the Falcon as a piece of garbage. In a game of Corellian Spike, Han won the Falcon, making things more accidental. After Hans won, he placed the dice in gold — you may have seen them in the Last Jedi when Luke gave them to Leia in honor to his departed friend.

Solo is the 10th Star Wars movie, which gives a backstory to roles that were presented elsewhere.

You will not find any cliffhangers in the Solo movie and you don't have to watch the previous films to understand what Solo is all about.

Solo: A Star Wars Story opens at Stars and Stripes Drive In Theater in New Braunfels May 25th, 2018.  Get your advanced tickets online today!  Click here.

Get Aquainted with Rampage

Get Acquainted with Rampage

 

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson hits the big screen again for a new movie that nods to an 80’s video game, Rampage. So, let’s get acquainted with the beloved video game and the upcoming movie.

Rampage: The Video Game

Rampage is a movie inspired by a video game.  In 1986, Midway created a monster-packed video game called Rampage. Specifically, as a player, you take over gigantic monsters trying to survive the blitzes of military force. When each city is reduced to rubble, you pass to the next level.

According to an article from the Chicago Tribune,

 

“When Brian Colin and Jeff Nauman created the Bally/Midway arcade classic “Rampage”

 in 1985, in a Franklin Park office building, their themes were reductive: It’s fun to break stuff.

For only a quarter, “Rampage,” the game, allowed players to become a giant ape,

lizard or wolf and smash tanks, eat police, level skyscrapers. And that’s it.

[If you are hit by too many bullets, you lose.]”

 

Essentially, they almost created a new video game genre – they made the player the villain (Source). Many have fond memories of this video game and it’s an exciting day that it will soon hit the big screen.

So, how is the movie going to differ from the video game? Keep reading for a little more about the Rampage movie premise.

Rampage: The Movie

The movie adaptation of Rampage is slightly different from its namesake. Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson plays a primatologist (a scientist of primates), Davis Okoye, who works to save America from giant animals, including a mammoth wolf, a massive gorilla, and an enormous crocodile who have grown to unbelievable sizes due to a genetic mutation.

We’re excited about this quite literally wild ride. A fun tidbit is that one of the creators of the game was invited to be an extra. In a sense, he became a Chicagoan running through the streets of his own creation.

Rampage hits theatres tomorrow. How do you feel about Rampage becoming a movie? Are you planning to see it in theaters?
