Jurassic Park Alternate Ending

Jurassic Park has some of the most memorable action adventure sequences ever put to film. From the tyrannosaurus rex attack to the velociraptor pursuit in the kitchen, the movie is filled with some extremely thrilling sequences. But there was one more action sequence that we never got to see in the final cut of the movie.

A batch of Jurassic Park storyboards recently surfaced online that show there was once a plan for quite a different action sequence for the film’s finale. Originally, there was a sequence planned that involved a helicopter rescue with the tyrannosaurus rex nearly stopping the chopper from getting off the island.

Check out the storyboards for the Jurassic Park alternate ending below. Read More »

jurassic world 2

Director J.A. Bayona is an inspired choice to take on the sequel to Colin Trevorrow’s Jurassic World, having revealed an eye for crafting sheer terror with The Orphanage and the ability to create astonishing technical set pieces with The Impossible. His latest movie, A Monster Calls, is very much a crowdpleaser…or whatever you’d call a movie whose cost of admission should come with a package of tissues.

While we still don’t know too much about what he plans to do with the second film in the planned Jurassic World trilogy, Bayona is now saying that Jurassic World 2 will be a bigger film than its predecessor. More importantly, he breaks out the “f” word.

Jurassic Park Velociraptor Head

Hopefully you had a Christmas that resulted in getting a pile of goodies from your closest family and friends. But maybe you got some extra spending money sitting in your pocket after exchanging gifts with them and you’re looking for the best way to spend it. Chronicle Collectibles has you covered.

All dinosaurs are dead, and the closest you can get to having one is somehow digging one up from the Earth and piecing it together in skeletal form. Even then, it’ll probably end up going to some museum. But now you can get the next best thing in the form of a 1:1 scale Velociraptor head bust inspired by the dinosaur’s design from Jurassic Park.

Check out the Jurassic Park Velociraptor head bust after the jump. Read More »

Jurassic World 2 score

The busiest man in show business is obviously Dwayne Johnson, who seems to bounce from once project to another as if a tiny explosive implanted in his brain will explode if he’s not on a film set. But the second busiest man in show business is composer Michael Giacchino, who has become the go-to guy for seemingly every major film franchise on the planet. In the past two years alone, he has crafted the music for nine movies, not including a handful of shorts.

“Sleep? What is sleep to Michael Giacchino?!” he whispers to himself as he agrees to return for Jurassic World 2.

‘Jurassic World 2’ Will Have a Political Element

jurassic world 2 political

The Jurassic Park movies may be pure fiction, but it’s not hard to see how its lessons might apply to real life. In between delighting us with scenes of people running from dinosaurs and scenes of dinosaurs eating people, the films preach caution against scientific advancement without concern for consequences, as well as the thoughtless exploitation of animals. And according to Jurassic World 2 director J.A. Bayona, his movie will carry on in a similar vein, with a political element cutting through the adventure. Read More »
