You’d think anyone who saw the first Jurassic Park would know better than to get too close to the raptors. And Chris Pratt has called Jurassic Park “my Star Wars,” so we can definitely assume he’s seen that kitchen scene a few times.
Yet here he is in the latest photo from Jurassic World, hanging out with to a raptor like it’s no biggie. Maybe when you’ve gone head-to-head with a tiny plastic despot and an evil alien overlord, a dinosaur seems less threatening. See the new Jurassic World photo after the jump. Read More »

The Jurassic World trailer showed us quite a bit, but one thing we didn’t see was one of the series’ signature dinosaurs: the Tyrannosaurus Rex. As a follow-up to that trailer release, however, the film’s official website has launched, and with it comes the first look at the film’s T-rex. Granted, it looks like, well, a T-rex. And what we see is merely a pair of CG renders of the beast. But that’s better than nothing. At the same time, director Colin Trevorrow has provided some commentary on the trailer, and his explanation of a few different points will definitely be of interest to fans who have questions about the new film. See the Jurassic World T-rex images below, along with some talk from the director. Read More »
Update From Editor Peter Sciretta: I have added another Jurassic World fan edit trailer, this one longer and more of a throwback to the original 1993 Spielberg film Jurassic Park. Watch it now after the jump.
There’s a lot in the Jurassic World trailer, as we thoroughly dissected yesterday. But one editor had the idea that less is more, and while it’s not our place to say that the first look at the film showed too much there’s something persuasive in this short Jurassic World trailer. The one-minute edit of the footage is cut very much to the tune of the recent Godzilla trailers that worked so well. While it can’t fully emulate those edits thanks to the limitations of using footage already cut for a different trailer, there’s a vibe here that works really well. Read More »
Universal Pictures gave fans a nice little holiday gift Tuesday with the early release of the Jurassic World trailer. It was the first big look at what director Colin Trevorrow has in store for the iconic Steven Spielberg/Michael Crichton franchise. The answer is the fulfillment of John Hammond’s dream: a dinosaur theme park where no expense is spared. However, after years, things are getting a bit stale. So the Jurassic World scientists create a new dinosaur. And we know that’s a big no-no.
As expected, reactions to the Jurassic World trailer ran the gamut from wide-eyed wonder to eye-rollingly dumb. People in the latter camp cited some of the new ways dinosaurs are being used at the park as an argument, as well as some of the computer generated effects. Now, the movie comes out in seven months so all of the effects will be finished and look better by then, but one shot in particular won’t. In fact, one shot in particular was made only for the trailer and will not be in the movie. Find out which below. Read More »

After last week’s odd tease about “Something Big Is Coming” in the Jurassic Park world, it’s come true. The official Jurassic World Twitter posted a short, awesome, tease of the first Jurassic World trailer, which will premiere Thursday at 9 p.m. EST during the Seahawks/49ers game on NBC, and online everywhere.
