It seems that Jeff Goldblum's infamous Jurassic Park pose is making a comeback in London...
Now TV, a streaming TV service and broadband provider in the United Kingdom, commissioned the statue, which is currently lounging comfortably near the Tower Bridge. It was made to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the original Jurassic Park movie—and, well, to get attention for Now TV, of course, which it is most certainly doing.
That statue face is just a wee bit creepy.
Here is the original shot from the film...
If you can't make it to London to hang out with him there, you can always get one of these at your nearby Target...
This last one might be a bit more affordable than a flight.

The rumored Downton Abbey movie has now been confirmed and starts filming this summer!!
It’s official, the Downton Abbey movie is a go. Focus Features has set production with Carnival Films to begin this summer for a return to all things Crawley. The original principal cast, including Maggie Smith, Michelle Dockery, Hugh Bonneville and more, are set to reprise their upstairs/downstairs roles with Focus and Universal Pictures International distributing.
Creator Julian Fellowes has written the film’s screenplay and will produce alongside Gareth Neame and Liz Trubridge. Brian Percival (The Book Thief), who directed the series’ pilot, will helm the film. Nigel Marchant will also return to executive produce.
The game-changing Downton Abbey followed the lives of the Crawley family and the servants who worked for them for six seasons on the UK’s ITV and PBS’ Masterpiece in the U.S., garnering a massive worldwide following and helping to kick-off the so-called new golden age of television while making period drama chic again — we also learned terms like “entail” and, famously, mused “what is a weekend?” The series won three Golden Globe Awards, 15 Primetime Emmys (out of 69 nominations in total) and a special BAFTA. Downton is the most nominated non-U.S. television show in the history of the Emmys.
And this is exactly how I feel about that...

The first trailer for Life Itself (from the creator of This Is Us) was released today...
It's got a great cast (including Jean Smart!) and looks like, yet, another ugly-cry movie for me to add to my list.
The movie opens on September 21st.

To go along with all of the World Cup fever, it looks like Cristiano Ronaldo might just be taking us home with him...
In what would be one of its biggest programming splashes yet, Facebook Watch is in talks with soccer superstar Cristiano Ronaldo for a reality series about his day-to-day life.
The planned 13-episode series would add to the sports lineup at Facebook Watch, which already distributes the basketball-themed Ball in the Family and Tom Brady close-up Tom vs. Time. While the social media giant has not disclosed viewership data, the strong promotional hooks and manageable production requirements of sports shows make them well-suited to a platform like Facebook.
In May, Watch boarded a scripted soccer drama with Ronaldo attached as an executive producer. That show comes with a series commitment and its other producers include the co-creators of Memphis Beat and former ABC programming chief Paul Lee’s independent studio, wiip.
I have no idea why anyone would watch this.
I stand corrected.

The first poster for the movie Glass, which is a sequel to the films Unbreakable and Split, was released today.
It will be interesting to see how M. Night Shyamalan ties both of those movies and original casts into a trilogy of films. I really enjoyed Unbreakable when it came out 18 years ago and Split is on my list to watch soon.
Here's hoping it turns out great.
Glass opens on January 18th.
