Yes, the timing of this show, so close to the release of Jurassic World, isn’t an accident. And yes, you should be excited for what Mondo has been cooking up. When you’re done humming John Williams’ iconic theme music, prepare yourself for an exclusive look at two very cool pieces from the show, as well as an interview with Mondo’s CEO and creative director, Justin Ishmael.

If early tracking is accurate, Jurassic World is going to make all of the money in the world when it opens next week. So yeah, of course buzz about a potential sequel has already begun swirling. Do you think Universal is going to wait 14 years between entries in this lucrative franchise again? However, don’t expect director Colin Trevorrow to return as he has made it clear he’s stepping away from the series following this entry.
It’s a common complaint about modern movies: Between 3D and extensive computer special effects, they all start to look like theme park rides. And while that’s a subjective value judgment, the opposite is increasingly and objectively true; with each passing year, more and more theme park rides start to look like movies.
Pencils (or bricks) down, everyone — this is officially the best Jurassic Park fan-made trailer we’re going to see, ever (unless someone has a line on some sick animatronics). A father/daughter team utilized over $100,000 worth of LEGO pieces to create a three-minute stop-motion Jurassic Park video, featuring some of the best moments from Steven Spielberg’s classic film.
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.
