DATE: RECENT In 1994, JOHN GOODMAN took on the role he was built for with the live action comedy, THE FLINTSTONES. This risky but highly inventive movie took all the wild and wacky Stone Age creations from the long running TV cartoon series and created them in real life using plenty of animatronic wheezes. Now the neaighbouring families, The Flintstones and the Rubbles are back, for VIVA ROCK VEGAS. Goodman declined to reprise his starring role as FRED FLINTSTONE, so stepping into his loincloth is British actor MARK ADDY, best known to audiences around the world as the roly poly stripped in THE FULL MONTY. His sidekick and best buddy Barney Rubble this time out is played by STEPHEN BALDWIN, yet another acting brother of the Baldwin clan. In this new story the Flintstones and the Rubbles go on a trip to Rock Vegas, where Wilma is pursued by playboy Chip Rockefeller. Long suffering Wilma is played by KRISTEN JOHNSTON while Barney's better half Betty is played by JAME KRAKOWSKI. There is a strong supporting cast including screen veteran JOAN COLLINS and ALAN CUMMINGS, the toast of Broadway after his long running appearance in CABERET last year. But the real stars will be the cunningly created animatronic dinosaurs and various automobiles and contraptions that are central to the movie's premise of an ordinary American blue collar male living in prehistoric life. Costume designer ROBERT TURTURICE has created a veritable prehistoric haute couture look. Director BRIAN LEVANT is back. Levant made the original movie as well as BEETHOVEN and JINGLE ALL THE WAY. The producers allowed reporters onto the set of the movie recently for a brief taster of what will be on offer when the film is eventually released, probably next summer.

Welcome to "Jurassic Park Japan" where they use the latest technology to bring to life animals that have been extinct for millions of years. This Tyrannosaurus Rex looks as real as its computer generated counterpart in the Spielberg blockbuster. T-Rex roars and swipes its gigantic tail in a terrifying display, but in reality it would only take the flick of a switch to put an end to his savage cries. This giant monster is at the mercy of its makers, computer and mechanical engineers who have put it together from plastic, metal and wire. The Japanese robot manufacturer, Kokoro Company Ltd., claims to be a leader in the world of animatronics such as dinosaurs and robots of other extinct animals Their creations are on exhibit at museums and amusement parks around the world. Last year alone, the company shipped more than one hundred dinosaur robots to Europe. Some of the company's models are on permanent display in the Natural History Museum, London. The ones you see here, however, are the most advanced to date. Their life-like appearance is due to the joint efforts of the company's engineering and artistic divisions. T-Rex alone contains 22 so-called "actuators" which create the movements, from the threatening swipes of the tail to the delicate raising of the eyelids. Air cylinders are connected to the each actuators which, with the help of computer programs, create the movements. With a combination of 32 patterns the computer program can create an almost infinite sequence of movements. It took a team of six engineers and artists more than seven months alone to make the T-Rex prototype. They have already sold three of the T-Rex at a cost of $250,000 US dollars (30 million yen) each. A pioneer in the industry, Kokoro began making animatronics in the early 70's when Japan's industrial robot expertise began to emerge. Kokoro's robots have been also exhibited in the California Academy of Science, the Boston Science Museum and in Canada, Australia, China, Taiwan and South East Asia.

ENTERTAINMENT DAILY: ENT5- TOY FAIR
TAPE_NUMBER: EF01/0186 IN_TIME: 14:17:58 LENGTH: 03:37 SOURCES: APTN RESTRICTIONS: music/performance rights must be cleared FEED: VARIOUS (THE ABOVE TIME-CODE IS TIME-OF-DAY) SCRIPT: xfa TITLE: NY TOY FAIR LOCATION: NEW YORK DATE: 13 FEBRUARY 2001 Parents might want to brace themselves for a fresh onslaught of pester power, as the American International Toy Fair unveils a host of goodies tied into 2001's forthcoming blockbuster film releases. The annual Toy Manufacturers Association trade show in New York is the largest in the Western Hemisphere. Nearly 2,000 manufacturers, distributors, importers and sales agents from 25 countries are showcasing their toy and entertainment products. Among the hi-tech, cuddly and educational toys on display are the movie spin offs - the toys children around the world will recognise from the silver screen. Every child loves a monster and Hasbro will be tapping into the demand to play with scaries featured in the upcoming Disney film 'MONSTERS, INC.', about the largest scare factory in the monster world. While Billy Crystal and Steve Buscemi provide the voices for a range of animated monsters for the big screen comedy, children can make their own blobby versions in a toy 'factory' - before squishing them with a satisfying splat inside a plastic dome - just like in the film. The somewhat scarier monsters about to rampage into the cinemas in 'JURASSIC PARK III' this summer are also on offer. While younsters might be blase about the T Rex's featured in the earlier two films, this time round Hasbro want to tempt them with an 'electronic reac-attack animatronic spinasaurus'. If their target consumers can remember what to ask for, they'll find themselves with a 'bigger, meaner' dinosaur which moves, roars, and can eat any action men left in the toy cupboard. The forthcoming remake of 'THE PLANET OF THE APES' has inspired a line of figurines for the collecting film fan. Minature versions of ape soliders, stranded astronauts and local women in stone age style costumes will all be on offer, either to reenact the futuristic plot or just sit meaningfully on a cabinet. The eagerly awaited film version of JK Rowling's 'HARRY POTTER AND THE PHILOSOPHER'S STONE' will of course come with a range of merchandise as well. Wizard fans can choose between a fierce looking toy two headed dog or a magic wand which lights up to play a simon says style game. There's also a comical talking portrait, who like the magical painting who guards the young hero's dormatory in the film, swivels its eyes and demands a password when approached. DESTINY'S CHILD were on hand to promote a gadget for older kids, or those who simply prefer music to film. The 'hit clip' looks like a computer chip on a key ring, and can slot into a range of specially modified toys. Once inserted it will play a hit track, inlcuding the girls' hit 'Jumpin Jumpin'. As if the prospect of a new way of reaching a young audience wasn't enough to celebrate, the band also have 5 Grammy nominations to smile about, and a performance on the night. But if they don't manage everything they want when the results are announced, perhaps someone will buy them a toy dinosaur to cheer them up.
