We're all getting pretty stoked for the release of 'Jurassic World' next summer, which—according to that first trailer—will apparently feature the vicious and highly intelligent velociraptors teaming up with Chris Pratt's character. Although that trailer featured quite a bit of CGI, we've been assured by director Colin Trevorrow that he still employed a healthy amount of practical effects, much like Steven Spielberg's original 'Jurassic Park'—which surprisingly took a practical approach to creating those famous raptors. You can see just how they pulled it off in this new video.
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 know what's scary? That 'Jurassic Park' never got a theme song with catchy, snappy, and applicable lyrics. You know what's even scarier? The possibility that such a song does indeed exist, and that Jeff Goldlbum wants you to hear it. No, really. He's here to sing it for you, too. Get in on this, fans of dinosaurs run amok, because this is a game-changer.
Richard Attenborough, the actor who famously portrayed Professor John Hammond in the Steven Spielberg's 'Jurassic Park,' as well as the acclaimed director of 'Gandhi,' passed away this past Sunday.
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!
There's something inherently silly about salivating over a specialty poster for a movie that hasn't even debuted a proper poster (or teaser or trailer or anything else) and won't even be out until next summer, but this new 'Jurassic World' Comic-Con...
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.
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.
