‘Parks & Recreation’ is now in Netflix UK

Parks & Recreation is now in Netflix UK (and more regions expected but to be confirmed).

The series will be joining a big collection of NBC comedies on Netflix UK with Brooklyn Nine-NineThe Good PlaceGood Girls and The Office currently available on Netflix UK. That’s gone in the opposite direction for Americans with Netflix US having lost both Parks & Recreation and The Office in the past few months.

In case you haven’t seen the show, it follows the Pawnee Parks Department and the public servants that run it. It comes from Greg Daniels and Michael Shur and ran for a total of seven seasons between 2009 and 2015.

We suspect other international regions will also carry Parks & Recreation from February 1st but you’ll need to follow your local social media channels for Netflix to learn of those dates.

Netflix UK confirmed the news on January 6th via a Tweet saying that “Every day is treat yo’ self day in 2021.”

Guardians of the Galaxy will have more screen time in “Thor: Love and Thunder”

Guardians of the Galaxy will have more screen time in “Thor: Love and Thunder”, so it won’t just be cameo.

The crossover is unsurprising, especially since the last time fans saw Pratt’s charming if somewhat bumbling hero was in the end of 2019’s Avengers: Endgame on board the same spaceship as Hemsworth‘s Thor. On the Thor front, Love And Thunder is the follow up to 2017’s massively successful third installment in the series, titled Thor: Ragnarok. Like that film, the fourth Thor movie will be directed by Taika Waititi.

Notably, Love And Thunder will welcome back Oscar winner Natalie Portman to the franchise, who last played her role of Jane Foster in the less successful second chapter of Thor in 2013, titled Thor: The Dark World. And in the new film, she is said to be taking on the mantle of Thor, thereby becoming the first female actor to do so. Another Academy Award winner set to appear in Love And Thunder is Christian Bale, who is said to be cast in an as-yet undisclosed villainous role.

Thor: Love And Thunder is currently slated for release in February of 2022.

Chris Pratt ‘Indiana Jones’ Casting Rumor Gains Momentum

Chris Pratt has become quite the notable actor from his roles in the MCU’s Guardians of the Galaxy franchise (Star-Lord / Peter Quill) to Jurassic World‘s leading man, Owen Grady. Heck, once Universal Orlando opens VelociCoaster this summer, Pratt will be showcased in attractions coast to coast including Disney California Adventure’s Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT! Now, rumors of Pratt’s involvement in the Indiana Jones franchise are continuing to grow.

Previously, the rumors of Pratt’s involvement in the fifth installment of Indiana Jones were being constructed to indicate that Pratt’s character would take the torch, or in this case, the hat and whip, from Harrison Ford. Now, it seems the rumor has evolved. For those who were thinking that Chris Pratt would become the leading Indiana Jones character, producer Frank Marshall clarified to Den of Geek, “There will only be one Indiana Jones and that’s Harrison Ford.” But, thanks to Comicbook.com a new rumor claims Pratt may still appear in the next Indiana Jones film.

When we discussed the original rumor, we noted that Chris Pratt has an uncanny semblance to Ford’s younger self, which is the exact direction this report takes. Rumor has it, “Lucasfilm is looking at Pratt to play a younger version of the character. He also claims that Indiana Jones 5 is planning to set up multiple spin-off films as well as a Disney+ series and animated show.” It will be interesting to see Pratt makes a cameo in the upcoming film. However, Lucasfilm has yet to confirm the actor’s involvement in any way. What we do know is that the fifth installment of Indiana Jones will begin filming in the spring of 2021 and is scheduled to be released in July 2022. The original Indy, Harrison Ford, will reprise his role and James Mangold is will be directing, replacing Stephen Spielberg.

A fan video has emerged on YouTube in which, thanks to the deepfake technique, the ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ actor ends up becoming the iconic Indy in several sequences from the original ’80s trilogy.

Jurassic World: Dominion Is a Celebration of the Whole Franchise, Says Trevorrow

With Season 2 of Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous arriving on Netflix, Jurassic World: Dominion director Colin Trevorrow said the latest film installment will celebrate the entire Jurassic Park franchise.

Trevorrow spoke on the Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom sequel with EW, stating the cast will be a “true ensemble” as previous Jurassic Park stars Sam Neill, Laura Dern and Jeff Goldblum join current franchise stars Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard. He made sure to mention that the three Jurassic Park veterans’ roles will be just as important as those of Pratt and Howard.

Trevorrow went on to elaborate on how Jurassic World: Dominion will contribute to the iconic film franchise. “To me, [Dominion] is a culmination of one story that’s been told,” Trevorrow said. “When you got to the end of the Jurassic Park trilogy, it may not have been as clear in what the complete story of those three movies was because they were a bit more episodic in the way that they were approached. But this trilogy is not that way. It’s very much a serialized story.”

He specified, “What was important for me was, when you watch Dominion, you really feel like you are learning how much of a story that the first set of movies were and how everything that happened in those movies actually informs what ultimately is able to happen in this. If kids who are born today are going to be presented with six Jurassic Park movies — you hope the parents will buy them the box set — you hope they are going to get to feel like they watch one long story.”

Jurassic World: Dominion wrapped up filming in Nov. 2020. After filming wrapped, Sam Neill took the time to say goodbye to the cast and crew after a long shoot. This was due to the production being delayed multiple times over the COVID-19 pandemic.

Directed by Colin Trevorrow, Jurassic World: Dominion stars Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Sam Neill, Laura Dern, Jeff Goldblum, Jake Johnson, Justice Smith, Daniella Pineda, Omar Sy, Isabelle Sermon and B.D. Wong. The film arrives in theaters on June 10, 2022.
