LEGO is gearing up for a big summer 2015.  In addition to their regular sets and the ones they’ll have for Avengers: Age of Ultron, the toy company is also working on Jurassic World.  This weekend, the first official Jurassic World LEGO image went online, and it shows the dino mayhem you’d expect.  You can also see the minifigure for Chris Pratt‘s character, Owen, as well as B.D. Wong‘s Dr. Henry Wu.  This image doesn’t specify a particular set, but I hope one of the six sets will be the “Jurassic World” gate, although it would be even cooler if they let you change the marquee to “Jurassic Park” for nostalgia’s sake.

New JURASSIC WORLD Image Has Chris Pratt Ridin’ with Raptors; Director Colin Trevorrow Teases the Threat of “The Other”

Yesterday, we got a new Jurassic World image of Chris Pratt hanging out with a raptor, which felt like a way of doubling down on one of the more controversial aspects of the first trailer—shouldn’t raptors be scary?  Isn’t it cooler if they’re wild and undomesticated?  Of course, we don’t know the context of this perceived friendship or how it will play out, so I’ll give director Colin Trevorrow the benefit of the doubt, especially since a new image has been released that shows researcher Owen (Pratt) riding a motorcycle alongside his raptor pals.  But perhaps they’re not friends as much uneasy allies since this time there’s a much bigger threat out in the park.

Along with today’s first Jurassic World trailer, Universal Pictures has also released four new images from the upcoming sequel.  The movie takes place 22 years after Jurassic Park and is set on a fully functional park on Isla Nublar.  The folks running Jurassic World think genetically modified dinosaurs are a good idea, and so naturally bad things happen.  These images show off one of the film’s new doohickeys, a gyroball (not the official name, but I don’t know what else to call it), which looks like it tumbled out of Oblivion and got a paintjob.

First JURASSIC WORLD Trailer Starring Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard Has Huge Dinosaurs and a Fully Operational Theme Park

Universal has released the first Jurassic World trailer online.  The movie takes place 22 years after Jurassic Park and is set on a fully functional park on Isla Nublar.  My initial thoughts are… “please God don’t let that be the final CG render.”  I love the concepts at play here, I love the fact that there are paying customers at the park.  I love action hero Chris Pratt and icy Bryce Dallas Howard.  As far as the effects, it’s par for the course to issue a trailer using incomplete renders since these big blockbusters are typically worked on up until the very day they have to be delivered for prints and DCPs to be struck.  So I’m going to go ahead and say I’m still optimistic here.

Universal Pictures has released the first Jurassic World teaser trailer for director Colin Trevorrow’s (Safety Not Guaranteed) highly anticipated sequel.  The movie takes place 22 years after Jurassic Park and is set on a fully functional park on Isla Nublar.  This is the perfect kind of teaser trailer in that it offers a tiny taste of footage tinged with a hint of nostalgia (the minimal take on John Williams‘ iconic theme is great), all underlined with a sense of foreboding.  We don’t have to wait long until we see the the full trailer though, as it will debut on Thanksgiving at 6pm PT/ 9pm ET during NBC football.

JURASSIC WORLD LEGO Provides First Look at the Film’s Genetically Engineered D-Rex and More [Updated]

by     Posted 35 days ago

First, let us have a moment of celebration that there will be Jurassic World LEGO (fun side-note: it also means Chris Pratt will be tied to three LEGO lines).  Second, toys (as they usually do) provide a first look at what the film has to offer (which is why there was no dancing Groot toy available when the movie was released; James Gunn wanted to keep it a secret), and now images have leaked for what could be the main dino antagonist of Jurassic World.  The “Diabolus Rex” aka “D-Rex”, has white skin, red eyes, and is made from the DNA of a Tyrannosaurus Rex mixed with a Velociraptor, a snake, and a cuttlefish.  I’m not exactly sure what cuttlefish adds to the mix.  One of its predators is a dolphin.  You can’t be threatening if you can be taken down by a dolphin.

Brand New Mark Englert JURASSIC WORLD Poster Will Be Available at San Diego Comic-Con [UPDATED with Variant]

by     Posted 154 days ago

Well, this is going to be a problem.  Colin Trevorrow just tweeted out a stunning Jurassic World poster that a special few will get their hands on at San Diego Comic-Con, but included zero details on how to get it.  I’m still bummed I haven’t been able to get the JC Richard or Aaron Horkey Jurassic Park prints for Mondo, so scoring one of these Mark Englert designs might have to be an SDCC 2014 priority.

The combination of the old and new here is particularly impressive.  We’ve got the park construction going on in the background, but a very familiar smashed Jurassic Park vehicle up front.  However, it isn’t the one responsible for the destruction looming over the flipped car, but rather a Velociraptor.  Perhaps they’re the guys in charge this time around?  Hit the jump to check out the art for yourself.  The film opens on June 12, 2015 in 3D and IMAX, and stars Chris PrattBryce Dallas HowardVincent D’OnofrioIrrfan KhanNick RobinsonTy SimpkinsJake Johnson, Omar Sy, and Judy Greer.

Come June 12, 2015, Jurassic Park will be a fully operational park and every park needs a brochure.  How else would you know where to catch the Mosasaurus Feeding Show or how to get to the official Jurassic Park golf course?  Because who wouldn’t want to squeeze in a quick 18 during a trip to a facility filled with creatures that have been extinct for about 65 million years?

The Jurassic World brochure has popped up online and it’s got a list of park highlights, the types of dinosaurs on display, a map of Isla Nublar and even some very familiar sponsors, too.  Hit the jump to check out what’s going down in the new and improved version of John Hammond’s original vision. And don’t forget, “PLEASE do not tap on the glass, cross barriers, throw anything into the exhibits, make excessive noise, tease or call out to the animals.”  We all know what could happen.

New JURASSIC WORLD Image Features a Bloody Handprint

When it comes to teasing out info about a movie, Universal and director Colin Trevorrow are doing it right with Jurassic World.  They’ve had behind-the-scenes video, shadows of a dinosaur, and several official images.  We know just enough about the plot—there is now functional Jurassic Park but when the owners try to liven things up, bad things happen—but not enough that we feel we already know too much.  The latest Jurassic World image gives an intriguing bloody handprint, so hopefully this is a sign that we could be in for some fun dino carnage when it comes to human prey.

New JURASSIC WORLD Behind-the-Scenes Video Featuring Interviews with Stars Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, and More

Today, the NBC’s The Today Show went to the set of Universal’s upcoming blockbuster Jurassic World (corporate synergy!), and spoke with the film’s stars.  The movie takes place 22 years after Jurassic Park and is set on a fully functional park on Isla Nublar.  As star Chris Pratt explains, the park’s revenues are declining, so they bring in a new attraction, “and it doesn’t go well.”  It’s kind of cool that the movie is willing to acknowledge that humanity could come up with a miracle like bringing dinosaurs back from extinction, but eventually we’d all get bored with them.

Hit the jump to check out interview with Pratt, co-stars Bryce Dallas Howard, Nick Robinson, Ty Simpkins, and, director Colin Trevorrow, also to get a brief look at the set.  The film also stars Vincent D’OnofrioIrrfan Khan, Jake Johnson, Omar Sy, and Judy Greer.

JURASSIC WORLD: New Images Featuring Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Nick Robinson, and Ty Simpkins

Jurassic World is exactly one year away, and so Universal has released three new images from the upcoming sequel.  The movie takes place 22 years after Jurassic Park and is set on a fully functional park on Isla Nublar.  Details are still under wraps, but director Colin Trevorrow says that the film will have new dinosaurs created by the park’s geneticists.  I imagine it will be a while before we see any of the dinosaurs, but it’s still nice to have a first look at Chris Pratt‘s character (he has a motorcycle so that’s how you know he’s cool) and co-stars Nick Robinson (The Kings of Summer) and Ty Simpkins (Iron Man 3).

JURASSIC WORLD Gets Patched up in New Set Photo from Director Colin Trevorrow

by     Posted 209 days ago

With images of vans, chairs, and garbage bins, we should accept that Jurassic World is going to show us a whole lot of nothing for some time.  Plot details are tightly under wraps (it’s rumored that the story has the park up and running, but mayhem ensues when cross-bred dinosaurs go on a rampage and the humans have to rely on “good dinos”).  Today, director Colin Trevorrow tweeted out an image of a patch for the “Isla Nublar Veterinary Services” of Jurassic World.  So this lends a bit more credence to the rumor that the story takes place in a “functional” dinosaur theme park.

Hit the jump to check out the new Jurassic World image.  The film opens June 12, 2015, and stars Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Vincent D’Onofrio, Irrfan Khan, Nick Robinson, Ty Simpkins, Jake Johnson, Omar Sy, and Judy Greer.

JURASSIC WORLD Director Colin Trevorrow Talks Omar Sy’s Character, Using Animatronic Dinos, and the Film’s Broader Conflict

by     Posted 243 days ago

jurassic-world-slice

Filming on Jurassic World is currently underway in Hawaii, but Colin Trevorrow took some time to reveal a few more details about the film.  It should have gone without saying, but he said anyway, “We definitely talked about [sequels] a lot,” the director/co-writer revealed. “We wanted to create something that would be a little bit less arbitrary and episodic, and something that could potentially arc into a series that would feel like a complete story.” This seems unlikely.  I just don’t buy that a major studio would want to take one of their marquee franchises and stretch it beyond this one movie.

In news that is actually newsworthy, hit the jump for what Trevorrow had to say about Omar Sy’s character, using animatronic dinosaurs, and the film’s larger conflict.  The film also stars Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Vincent D’Onofrio, Irrfan Khan, Nick Robinson, Ty Simpkins, Jake Johnson, and Judy Greer.    Jurassic World opens June 12, 2015.  If you missed them, click here to see the first official images from the film.

French actor Omar Sy had a breakthrough role with the French film The Intouchables and landed the part of Bishop in the upcoming blockbuster X-Men: Days of Future Past.  Now he’s joined another tentpole feature by signing on to co-star in the fourth Jurassic Park movie, Jurassic World.  Unsurprisingly, since we don’t know much about the plot, we don’t know much about his role, but it’s good to see another talented actor join the cast.  The movie also stars Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Vincent D’Onofrio, Irrfan Khan, Nick Robinson, and Ty Simpkins.

Hit the jump for tweets from Sy and director Colin Trevorrow about the actor joining the film.  Jurassic World opens June 12, 2015. [Update: THR reports that Idris Elba and Jake Johnson have also joined the cast.] [2nd update: THR has quietly removed Elba from their listing of the cast members, and @slashfilm is tweeting that the rumor is "NOT true.

B.D. Wong Set to Return for JURASSIC WORLD; More Details Revealed about Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard’s Characters

Every Jurassic Park sequel has had a returning character from the original, but they were leads (Jeff Goldblum and Sam Neill, respectively).  Jurassic World won’t break from tradition, but it will take a much smaller character and bring him into the cast.  According to IGN, B.D. Wong, who played the InGen’s chief geneticist Dr. Henry Wu, will be returning for the upcoming sequel.  “He had a much larger role in the original novel, he was the engineer of this breakthrough in de-extinction,” director Colin Trevorrow explains. “He spent two decades living in Hammond’s shadow, underappreciated. We think there’s more to his story.”

Hit the jump for some more details about the lead characters played by Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard.  The film also stars Nick Robinson (The Kings of Summer) and Ty Simpkins (Iron Man 3).  Jurassic World opens June 12, 2015.
