Starring Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Ty Simpkins, Jake Johnson, Nick Robinson, Irrfan Khan, Vincent D’Onofrio, BD Wong, Omar Sy, Judy Greer, Katie McGrath, Lauren Lapkus and Andy Buckley, Jurassic World is a sci-fi terror adventure set 22 years after the horrific events of the original Jurassic Park.
The story picks up 22 years after the events of Jurassic Park, and is set in a fully functioning dinosaur theme park, called Jurassic World. After many years, Jurassic World’s attendance rates begin to decline and a new attraction, created to re-spark visitor interest, gravely backfires.

TNT has released a trailer for the second season of Murder in the First, which premieres on June 8, and stars Taye Diggs and Kathleen Robertson and co-created by Emmy winner Steven Bochco and Eric Lodal.
Executive produced by Steven Bochco (NYPD Blue) and Eric Lodal, Murder In The First follows a complex homicide investigation that spans the entire season. In the first season, San Francisco homicide detectives Terry English (Diggs) and Hildy Mulligan (Robertson) investigate what originally appears to be two unrelated murders. In the 10 episode story arc, the two detectives learn their victims had previous ties to Silicon Valley prodigy Erich Blunt (Tom Felton).
In season 2, San Francisco homicide detectives Terry English (Diggs) and Hildy Mulligan (Robertson) will investigate a series of murders that could rip the city apart and shake the police force at its core. Caught in the crosshairs during one of the most shocking crimes in the city’s history, Mulligan, English and the men and women of 850 Bryant Street find themselves trapped in a crumbling system where the lines are blurred – between friends and enemies, loyalty and corruption, legal and illegal, good and evil – as a threat from outside is matched by a threat from within.
Joining the cast this season are A.J. Buckley (Justified), Emmanuelle Chriqui (Entourage), Laila Robins (Homeland), Mo McRae (Wild), Mateus Ward (Hostages) and John Cothran (Eastbound & Down). Returning series regulars include Raphael Sbarge (Once Upon a Time) and Lombardo Boyar (The Bernie Mac Show) as Homicide Inspectors David Molk and Edgar Navarro, Ian Anthony Dale (Hawaii Five-0) as Lt. Jim Koto, Currie Graham (Raising the Bar) as Chief Prosecutor Mario Siletti and Mimi Kirkland (Safe Haven) as Hildy’s daughter, Louise.
Chriqui will play Lara Cruz, a brash and badass member of the SFPD Gang Task Force, while A.J. Buckley plays Marty “Junior” Mulligan, brother to Kathleen Robertson’s Detective Hildy Mulligan and a fellow San Francisco PD police officer.
Season 1 of MurderInTheFirst is now streaming on Hulu!

Anchor Bay Entertainment and Gravitas Ventures will release the Spike Lee thriller DA SWEET BLOOD OF JESUS on Blu-ray and DVD on May 26, 2015. The film previously hit theaters on February 13th after a successful Kickstarter campaign to fund the production. It’s a reinterpretation of Bill Gunn’s horror cult film “Ganja & Hess”, which played as a Critics Choice at the 1973 Cannes Film Festival; Spike Lee’s stylized thriller features an Original Score by Bruce Hornsby.
A Spike Lee Joint, DA SWEET BLOOD OF JESUS is directed by Spike Lee, written by Bill Gunn and Spike Lee, produced by Chiz Schultz (who also produced “Ganja & Hess”) and Spike Lee, co-produced by Jason Sokoloff with music by Bruce Hornsby, cinematography by Daniel Patterson, costume design by Ruth E. Carter, production design by Kay Lee, and editing by Randy Wilkins. The film stars Zaraah Abrahams, Stephen Tyrone Williams, Rami Malek, and Elvis Nolasco. The production company is 40 Acres & A Mule Filmworks. The original songs soundtrack is from Epic Records.
A Spike Lee Joint, DA SWEET BLOOD OF JESUS is a new kind of love story, one that centers on an addiction to blood that once doomed a long forgotten ancient African tribe. When Dr. Hess Green (Stephen Tyrone Williams) is introduced to a mysteriously cursed artifact by an art curator, Lafayette Hightower (Elvis Nolasco), he is uncontrollably drawn into a newfound thirst for blood that overwhelms his soul. He however is not a vampire. Lafayette quickly succumbs to the ravenous nature of the infliction but leaves Hess a transformed man. Soon Lafayette’s wife, Ganja Hightower (Zaraah Abrahams), comes looking for her husband and becomes involved in a dangerous romance with Hess that questions the very nature of love, addiction, sex, and status in our seemingly sophisticated society.
