(Welcome to Cardboard Cinema, a feature that explores the intersection between movies and tabletop gaming. This column is sponsored by Dragon’s Lair Comics & Fantasy in Austin, Texas.)

jeff goldblum thor ragnarok

The best thing about reading a Jeff Goldblum interview is that it’s so explicitly Goldblum that you can practically hear him talking and guffawing in your ear.

More so than the tidbits he teases about Thor: Ragnarok his first venture into superhero territory or the fact that he’s returning to the dinosaur franchise that he helped make famous as Dr. Ian Malcolm, are the hilarious Goldblum-esque quirks throughout this new interview. He calls the Jurassic Park series “dino-entertainment!” He rates directors on a scale of himself! It’s fortuitous that Ragnarok director Taika Waititi told Goldblum to be as Goldblum as possible in his portrayal of the Grandmaster. I hope he never changes.

jurassic world 2 photo

Just like how you need to break a few eggs to make an omelet, Colin Trevorrow knows you need to smuggle out a few dinosaur eggs to make a sequel.

In a cryptic new photo from Jurassic World 2, Trevorrow — who yields the director’s chair this time around to A Monster CallsJ. A. Bayona — teases a picture of dinosaur eggs in an incubator waiting to hatch, in an eerie parallel to the classic scene in the lab from the original Jurassic Park.

fast and furious jurassic park crossover

The Fate of the Furious, the latest high octane goof-fest from the Fast and the Furious series, comes rip-roaring into theaters this weekend. What started as a fairly dull Point Break knock-off with street racing instead of surfing somehow blossomed into a delightful, silly, universally embraced franchise. As the series unveils its eighth entry, one question remains: where does Dominic Toretto and his family go from here?

Some would say the logical (or perhaps illogical) next step is space, the final frontier. Even Fate of the Furious screenwriter Chris Morgan acknowledged as much recently, and didn’t completely shoot down the idea, saying, “Look, I get all versions of that question. I get, ‘Are you going to space?,’ and, ‘Please, God, tell me you’re not going to space because you’ll lose me if you do.’ The only way I’d go to space is if I had something so good.

I submit, however, that the Furious franchise need not slip the surly bonds of earth, but rather stay rooted to terra firma. And then bring in some dinosaurs.

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 »
