This year marks the 25th anniversary of Jurassic Park, one of the most iconic blockbusters of the modern era. Having delivered state-of-the-art special effects with a team of technical wizards, everyone wanted to know how director Steven Spielberg was able to bring these extinct, larger than life creatures to back from the dead to make us believe in movie magic. Thankfully, a 49-minute documentary from 1995, narrated by James Earl Jones, goes behind the scenes to show us how it was accomplished. Read More »

Power Wheels Jurassic Park Jeep

All the coolest toys seem to be manufactured once you’re too old to play with them. Such is the case with an incredible new Fisher Price Power Wheels vehicle that Jurassic Park fans would have killed to drive around in back in 1993.

Fake Theme Parks Art Show

While you may have enjoyed going to the likes of Disney World or Universal Studios, there are plenty of theme parks from the world of movies and television that we’ll unfortunately never get to visit.

Fake Theme Parks is a new exhibition coming to Gallery 1988 starting January 12, and as you might have guessed, it pays tribute to a variety of theme parks from the history of pop culture. Jurassic Park, Westworld, Itchy & Scratchy Land, Anatomy Park, Walley World, Pacific Playland, Dinosaur World and many more will all be honored in the Fake Theme Parks art show.

If you want an early sneak peek at some of the pieces, /Film has exclusively debuted some of the artwork below. Read More »

Cool Posts From Around the Web:

Jurassic World 2 action

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom certainly has a lot to live up to in terms of box office performance. (Jurassic World is the fourth biggest movie of all time worldwide. That’s nuts, and I actually like that movie!) But putting the financial conversation aside, how will the movie fare from a creative perspective? Hardcore fans are largely thrilled with what they’ve seen so far, but I wonder how general audiences feel about the idea of a dinosaur rescue mission and a volcano threatening to blow up the island.

If it’s action you’re hoping for, it sounds like you won’t be disappointed. Fallen Kingdom director J.A. Bayona says the film contains “the biggest set-piece ever done for a Jurassic movie” and compares another action sequence to something out of a James Bond movie. But is bigger action what this franchise needs?

Update 3: The actual trailer for Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom arrives later today. In the meantime, one more teaser has arrived online, showing off an adorable baby raptor. Check it out below.

Update 2: Yet another trailer tease for Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom is here and it features Chris Pratt getting up close and personal with a T-Rex. You can watch it below.

Update: A second trailer tease for Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom has arrived online, revealing more dinosaurs, more terrified humans, and more Chris Pratt looking giddy at the prospect of being in a Jurassic Park movie. You can watch the new teaser, as well as the first one, below.

This week will bring the first trailer for Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, the sequel to the 2015 reboot/sequel in the Jurassic Park franchise. Though some would argue that Jurassic World was a tad underwhelming, much like Star Wars: The Force Awakens, it delivered the right amount of nostalgia mixed with fresh elements to make it feel new again. Plus, it had been awhile since we’d gotten a decent blockbuster with dinosaurs.

Anyway, with just a few days out from the release of the full trailer, Universal Pictures has released a Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom trailer teaser featuring out first look at one of the action sequences from the film, and it has one particular elemtn that we’ve never seen in a Jurassic Park movie before. You’ll see what I mean below. Read More »
