Yes, that is the head of an animatronic velociraptor that will appear in 'Jurassic Park 4,' giving us our first direct look at a dinosaur from the highly anticipated film. It turns out that director Colin Trevorrow wasn't lying or exaggerating when he promised that his sequel would feature practical effects ... and we love him for it.
Next summer seems like an eternity to wait for 'Jurassic World,' but as long as director Colin Trevorrow keeps teasing the new sequel via awesome behind the scenes pics, we'll keep waiting patiently. Today brings yet another photo from the set, and this time things are a bit bloody.
Although director Colin Trevorrow has done an excellent job of keeping us teased for 'Jurassic Park 4' (officially titled 'Jurassic World'), we're still hungry for more. So hungry, in fact, that we'll endure watching the 'Today Show' footage from their set visit to catch even the tiniest glimpse of something new and cool. If you're a real fan, you'll suck it up and do the same.
Though we're still a year away from the release of 'Jurassic Park 4,' director Colin Trevorrow wants us to know that the dinosaurs are coming, and that some will be done with practical effects, as he's just teased a first glimpse at one of the dinos!
Until recently, 'Jurassic Park 4' (officially titled 'Jurassic World') was well clothed in secrecy, but rumors have made the film's director Colin Trevorrow speak up about his 'Jurassic Park' sequel, and so he's just given an interview to clarify those rumors. In doing so, he dropped some tantalizing details about the upcoming sequel.
'Jurassic Park 4' quietly began filming a little over a week ago and the first images from the set have begun to trickle out. Those hoping to catch a glimpse of a T-Rex or a velociraptor will have to wait a little while longer, but there's enough subtle goodness in these three photos to get any fan excited.
'Jurassic Park 4' (now officially titled 'Jurassic World') only just began filming in Hawaii, but life finds a way and Universal is already planning sequels to the upcoming, uh, sequel. (Please read previous sentence in your best Jeff Goldblum voice.) The studio has some pretty big plans for the upcoming film, and those plans involve setting the stage to continue the franchise, if they can.
There has been much talk and speculation over which cast members, if any, would return for 'Jurassic Park 4'. Sam Neill, Jeff Goldblum and Laura Dern have said publicly they haven't been approached about returning for the new film, but it turns out one of the original 'Jurassic Park' cast members will return after all. Who will it be?
Even if you don't know Phil Tippett by name, you certainly know his work. He was hired by George Lucas to work on the original 'Star Wars' trilogy and was responsible for creating and stop-motion animating the AT-ATs, the tauntauns and later some of the creatures in 'Return of the Jedi' (for which he would win his first Oscar). He also was hired by Steven Spielberg to supervise the animation of the dinosaurs for 'Jurassic Park,' a large part of what that film was so successful (indeed, he would win another Oscar for his work). While none of the subsequent 'Jurassic Park' (or 'Star Wars' films for that matter) would bring him back, director Colin Trevorrow has confirmed that Tippett will return for the upcoming 'Jurassic World.'
