Considering the 1973 Westworld and the original Jurassic Park novel were both written by Michael Crichton, someone was bound to point out sci-fi theme parks run amok as a recurring theme. Thankfully, the internet never sleeps, and has now catered to the need for a helpful video pointing out the exact similarities between HBO’s Westworld and Jurassic Park.

‘Jurassic Park’ Almost Had a ‘Graphic’ Animated Series, Before Spielberg Killed It

Amid the reign of selective sequels in recent years, few could have expected Jurassic World to revitalize interest in the Jurassic Park franchise so heartily. Certainly, the original incarnation permeated its share of culture with endless merchandising tie-in, but did you know we almost got a “mature” Jurassic Park animated series, before Spielberg permanently caged the project? We even have the concept art to prove it.

‘Jurassic World’ Attraction at Universal Studios Allows You to Encounter a Raptor

by Jacob Hall July 9, 2015 @ 9:51 AM
If Universal had know that Jurassic World was going to shatter box office records and quickly become one of the highest grossing movies of all time, they probably would’ve planned a massive new attraction for their theme parks. But seemingly no one, not even the people who made it, predicted that the fourth film in the beloved series would do this kind of business. While there isn’t a brand new ride or show to capitalize on the success of the new movie, Universal Studios has introduced a very cool velociraptor meet-and-greet, which allows guests to meet the deadliest predator in history...and have their picture taken with it.

Here’s What You Can Expect From the ‘Jurassic World’ Sequel

by Jacob Hall June 15, 2015 @ 2:43 PM
Jurassic World just had the biggest opening weekend of all time, so yeah, there’s going to be a sequel. And yeah, there’s no way Universal is going to going to wait 14 years like they did after Jurassic Park III. They’re not even going to wait four years like they did after the first two movies. They are going to fast track this thing like you wouldn’t believe. Expect a Jurassic World sequel in two years, maybe three.

This Is the One Great Part of ‘The Lost World: Jurassic Park’

by Matt Singer June 10, 2015 @ 9:20 AM
The Lost World: Jurassic Park is not a good movie. It might be Steven Spielberg’s worst movie, depending on how you feel about 1941and Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. It’s a pale imitation of its successor, with a dopey story, dopier characters (“Hey my shirt is drenched in infant T. Rex blood, and I know they can track scents incredibly well because I’m a brilliant paleontologist, but I’m just going to keep wearing it anyway!”), inferior special effects, none of the sense of wonder that made Jurassic Park a generational touchstone. It’s not even as good as Jurassic Park III (and Jurassic Park III ain’t exactly Jurassic Park 1 either).
