We’re all still a little excited about that ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ trailer, but the first official full-length trailer for ‘Jurassic World’ also debuted a few days ago, and we’re still thinking about a few things: The giant aquatic dinosaur leaping through the air to eat the shark, the super-smart hybrid dino that serves as the film’s central conflict, and the implication near the end of the trailer that Chris Pratt’s protagonist is using the velociraptors to help track down and kill the super-smart killer dino. Director Colin Trevorrow knows exactly what we want to talk about, in a new interview, he’s talking about all of it.

Released in 1993, ‘Jurassic Park’ is still one of the biggest movies of all-time and one of the best action-adventure movies of the blockbuster era. How is it that the visual effects in a movie from 1993 look better than most movies made today? You can find out about that, and all other things ‘Jurassic Park’ in the latest episode of You Think You Know Movies, which focuses on Steven Spielberg’s prehistoric classic. Hold on to your butts!
“You just went and made a new dinosaur? Probably not a good idea.” And, there’s the ‘Jurassic Park 4’ trailer summed up for you in pretty much one exchange. While the previous ‘Jurassic Park’ films dealt with the folly of John Hammond’s original plans for the park, this new film imagines a world where Jurassic Park is now up and running. The kinks have been worked out. Raptors are trained. But, people are still people and that means they do really stupid things. Like create massive “hybrid” dinosaurs to goose attendance at their park.
A few days ago, the YouTube page for Universal Spain posted memorable footage of the cup of water vibrating from ‘Jurassic Park’ as a teaser for ‘Jurassic World,’ which seemed pretty curious. But today brings our first official footage from ‘Jurassic World’ in the form of a far more awesome teaser for the trailer, which will hit the web on Thanksgiving day. If that’s not something to be thankful for, what is?
At a glance, MasraniGlobal.com looks like any other website for a boring technology company, with details on its founder, Sanjay Masrani, his son and successor Simon, and their financial interests in construction, engineering, real estate, health care, and dinosaur theme parks. On second thought, perhaps that last part is a clue that Masrani Global doesn’t exist, except as a fictional company in the story of ‘Jurassic World,’ next summer’s sequel to Steven Spielberg’s ’90s dinosaur classic.
Hold onto your butts (that joke never gets old. Never) because we've got the first poster for 'Jurassic World.' We know, the movie doesn't come out until 2015, but that isn't keeping us from being totally over the three prehistoric moons with excitement about this dang poster.
Ahead, Schwartzman also talks about working with Tim Burton in the upcoming film ‘Big Eyes’ – a director Schwartzman’s admired since childhood – and explains what it’s like being related to Nicolas Cage.
Vincent D'Onofrio may be most widely recognized as the detective with some unorthodox techniques on 'Law & Order: Criminal Intent,' but he's ready to branch out into more sinister roles in playing the Kingpin in Marvel's 'Daredevil' Netflix series and, reportedly, a villain in 'Jurassic Park 4.' As the actor reminded me, he was known for his many bad-guy characters in his earlier career (for one, see 'Men in Black'), though newer generations will become acclimated with his darker side.
The official 'Jurassic Park' poster, with its emblem plastered on a black background, is as iconic as movie posters get. Although extremely simple in concept and execution, it allows the viewer to create the entire movie in his or her imagination. It's understated and it's brilliant. With that out of the way, it's time to take a look at some alternate posters that were designed for the film and never used. We'll be perfectly honest: some of these are good enough to make us question our loyalty to that classic final poster.
It's crazy to think that production on 'Jurassic Park 4' is officially wrapped, considering the idea seemed like a faint glimmer in the eye of Steven Spielberg when he announced its development a few years ago, but director Colin Trevorrow's latest update from the set makes it official. Now it's time for post-production!
