Jurassic Park LEGO Set

Since the Jurassic Park franchise was reinvigorated with the legacy-quel Jurassic World in 2015, the merchandise for the action adventure film series featuring hungry dinosaurs has been ramped up to its full potential. There are plenty of action figures, t-shirts, stuffed dinosaurs, video games and much more to cash in on the Jurassic Park name. However, not much attention has been paid to bringing the original Jurassic Park to life in merchandise form again, but LEGO is about to change that.

A new Jurassic Park LEGO set will be available for purchase next week, and it allows fans to recreate several iconic scenes fro Steven Spielberg’s original movie. More specifically, it brings to life the third act chase sequence with a pack of velociraptors chasing down Dr. Alan Grant (Sam Neill), Dr. Ellie Sattler (Laura Dern), and John Hammond’s grandchildren Lex (Ariana Richards) and Tim (Joseph Mazzello).

Jurassic Park Fan Recreation

This year marks the 25th anniversary of Jurassic Park. The movie took audiences by storm back in 1993, and the franchise continues this year with Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom. While fans are interested to see where the story goes next, others are content with looking back on one of Steven Spielberg‘s best films by meticulously recreating scenes from the movie themselves.

In a project sanctioned by Universal Pictures, fans recreated scenes from Jurassic Park with whatever they had at their disposal to create a low budget, abridged version of the movie. It’s basically a sweded version of Jurassic Park complete with (mostly) hilariously bad acting, cheap props, and some of the worst dinosaurs you’ve ever seen. But that’s kind of the point.

Buy Jurassic Park Night Vision Goggles

Since we’re not going to get real dinosaurs in front of our eyes anytime soon, we’ll take the next best thing from Jurassic Park instead.

You might remember that John Hammond’s grandson Tim (Joseph Mazzello) stumbles upon a pair of cool light-up night vision goggles under the seat of the Jurassic Park branded Ford Explorer while they’re stranded next to the tyrannosaurus rex paddock in the rain. Now those night vision goggles can be yours in the form of a detailed life-size prop replica from Chronicle Collectibles. Read More »

jurassic park jeff goldblum

There would’ve been no Jurassic Park without Jeff Goldblum‘s Dr. Ian Malcolm. Well, not really, but it’s certainly hard to imagine. As soon as the chaos mathematician stepped into frame with his tinted glasses, leather jacket, and addictively weird laugh, we all knew it was an icon in the making. And then when he bared his chest after getting attacked by a dinosaur, he cemented his place on thousands of teen girls’ bedroom walls.

But, according to Goldblum, the character almost didn’t make it into the movie. There’s no dinosaur more horrifying than that prospect.

(Welcome to Nostalgia Bomb, a series where we take a look back on beloved childhood favorites and discern whether or not they’re actually any good. In this edition: Steven Spielberg’s Jurassic Park is 25 this year, so let’s make sure we’re not crazy about still loving this one.)

The great film truant Ferris Bueller once said, “Life comes at you pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.”

Of course, Ferris wasn’t being chased by a nine-ton T. Rex.

Some people measure their years by the changing of seasons, celebrations of wedding anniversaries (or divorces) or school being out for summer. Not me. Until recently, I chose to mark the passage of time by how many years it had been since the release of Jurassic Park.

I’m not sure quite how JP became my benchmark. I didn’t see it in the theater when it opened in 1993; I wasn’t that into dinosaurs, and my 6-year-old brother would have thrown an absolute shitfit if my parents had excluded him. That first viewing came a few years later, the same brother diving behind the couch every time a velociraptor or dilophosaurus came into view. I still haven’t watched it on the big screen.

Saturday Night Live Jurassic Park Audition

This year marks the 25th anniversary of Jurassic Park, and this past weekend, Saturday Night Live celebrated by uncovering a collection of never-before-seen auditions from a slew of talents back in 1992. Of course, these auditions feature talented cast members like Kate McKinnon, Pete Davidson, Leslie Jones, Mikey Day, Alex Moffat, Kenan Thompson and host Bill Hader merely putting on their (mostly) best impressions of famous faces from 1992.

This collection of Saturday Night Live Jurassic Park auditions features a surprising number of names with hilarious impressions bringing them to life. They include Alan Alda, Jodie Foster, Hugh Grant, Wesley Snipes, Al Pacino, Whoopi Goldberg and even Sinbad. But there are plenty more names you wouldn’t be expecting in a blockbuster movie like this, which is part of what makes this so damn funny. Read More »

Jurassic Park T-Rex Statue

Since science and technology has not yet allowed us to bring dinosaurs back to life (and likely never will), but you can have the next best thing thanks to a gorgeous new statue being produced by Chronicle Collectibles and Iron Studios.

Few on-screen creatures rival the terrifying presence of the tyrannosaurus rex from the original Jurassic Park. Between the sound of those footsteps, the power of that roar, and the hunger in those eyes, the carnivore might as well have been brought back to life in front of our very eyes for as real as she seemed. Now you can bring her home in the form of a tenth scale statue that looks positively stunning. Read More »
