A video has surfaced from The Today Show’s visit to the set of Jurassic World with behind-the-scenes footage and a chat with Chris Pratt and Bryce. Please click below to watch the video or see some captures in our gallery!
The actress was on location in Hawaii shooting a scene inside the jaws of a giant dinosaur attempting to eat her, when a sudden power failure trapped her inside the monster’s closed metal mouth!
“Bryce found herself surrounded by wires and machinery used to operate the dinosaur’s jaws and started screaming, ‘Please, get me out of here!’ The crew, working feverishly to pry the jaws open without damaging the mechanical beast, kept assuring Bryce she’d be fine,” a source said.
“But it took 15 minutes of hard work before they finally pried the beast’s mouth open and pulled her to safety.”
Bryce then tanked the crew profusely, and resumed filming as soon as the power came back on. What a pro!
Entertainment Weekly has posted the first images from the set of Jurassic Park and luckily one features Bryce! Click on the right to be see the picture. Also, her character’s name has now been revealed to be Beth.
The new movie will take place twenty two years after the events in the original Jurassic Park and also stars Chris Pratt, Ty Simpkins, Jake Johnson, Nick Robinson, Irrfan Khan, Vincent D’Onofrio, BD Wong, Omar Sy, Judy Greer, Katie McGrath and Lauren Lapkus.
I just wanted to take a moment to wish Bryce a very very happy belated birthday! (She turned 33 on Sunday but I was away and had no computer access there.) I hope you had a fantastic day with your beautiful family and I can’t wait for you return to the big screen! Your career just continues to amaze me and I will keep supporting you with this website for the years to come! – Mel
Bryce attended the Huntington’s Disease Society Of America 2014 Freeze HD Benefit on Saturday where she shared hosting duties with her friend Jason Ritter. You can see some pictures here – she looked beautiful as always in her black dress!
In case you don’t know, “Huntington’s disease is a hereditary disorder in which nerve cells in certain parts of the brain degenerate. An estimated 30,000 Americans live with Huntington’s disease, which affects their ability to walk, think and regulate their mood” (Source).
Bryce’s close friend and filmmaker Marianna Palka’s life has also been affected by it, which led her to filming a short documentary called The Lion’s Mouth Opens in which she confronts her risk of actually having the disease (Bryce also stars in it). It has premiered at the Sundance Film Festival this year – click here for more information!
Actress Bryce Dallas Howard has never starred in a Nicholas Sparks romance movie, but she gets the gist of it in this Funny Or Die parody of the author’s book-turned-films.
Howard’s character meets her man on the beach, of course, and it’s love at first sight …for her. He runs up to hug her after confusing her for his cousin, and that’s when the obsession begins.
Like The Notebook, The Hug opens with Howard as an old woman. “Did I ever tell you the story of how I met the love of my life?” she asks. “Yes, you do. You tell me almost every day,” her nurse answers. (Source)
On January 26, Bryce attended the opening night of Alex Prager’s new exhibition Face In The Crowd. In case you don’t know, he is an American photographer and filmmaker and directed Bryce in his beautiful short film Despair back in 2010 which you can watch online here.
Anyway, needless to say that Bryce looked stunning at the event! I really love her outfit, and it’s nice to see that the two of them have kept in touch. Click here to see some pictures!
Awesome news everyone – Bryce is starring in a new movie!
Memento Films International (MFI) has acquired international rights to Jason Lew’s directorial debut The Free World.
Actor and writer Lew previously wrote the screenplay for Gus Van Sant’s Restless, about the relationship between a terminally ill girl and a boy obsessed with death, which opened Cannes’ Un Certain Regard in 2011.
Irish actor Cillian Murphy, soon to be seen in Transcendence and Ron Howard’s Heart of the Sea, is set to co-star opposite Bryce Dallas Howard in the thriller. Howard’s upcoming credits include Jurassic World.
Murphy will play Mohamed “Mo” Lundy, a man trying to re-adjust to civilian life after a brutal 20-year stretch for crimes he did not commit.
His world collides with Doris Lamb (Howard), a mysterious woman with a violent past. Mo will do anything for this woman include risking his newfound freedom.
The film is scheduled to begin principal photography in the autumn. (Source)
There have been some rumours recently that Marvel is taking a look at Bryce Dallas Howard or Rashida Jones to play opposite Paul Rudd in Edgar Wright’s film adaptation of Ant-Man.
There is no explanation of what role the ladies might play, as the traditional romance for Ant-Man, albeit Hank’s Pym’s Ant-Man, was Janet Van Dyne, the Wasp.(Source)
Cinemablend has a little more information about the potential role:
Janet van Dyne was first introduced in the comics in 1963 and is best known as her superhero alter ego Wasp. She has the ability to shrink herself down to the size of an insect, but she can also fly and fire bio-electric energy blasts from her hands. The character has classically been romantically linked with Dr. Hank Pym, who will be played by Michael Douglas in the movie. If Jones and Howard are in fact being considered to play van Dyne, it’s possible that given the age difference the film will have her in a relationship with Paul Rudd’s Scott Lang instead. Either that or the actresses are going out for a completely different role all together.
Ant-Man is expected to open July 31, 2015. Just keep in mind that nothing has been confirmed so far (I will keep you updated)!
Bryce, Seth and Ron attended the 2014 InStyle And Warner Bros. 71st Annual Golden Globe Awards Post-Party yesterday and I uploaded a couple of pictures from the event here (or see the thumbnails below).
On another note, Jurassic World plans to start shooting in Louisiana on June 2 (Source). I’ll keep you updated!
