Jurassic Park Goonies Easter Egg

It’s been 24 years since Jurassic Park hit theaters, and while the movie has been examined in-depth over and over again plenty of times since then, it appears one possible Easter egg may have gone unnoticed until now.

In Jurassic Park, Seinfeld star Wayne Knight plays the sneaky, weasel of a Jurassic Park employee named Dennis Nedry who is being paid millions to steal dinosaur embryos so an unknown competitor could create their own dinosaurs. It turns out that in addition to concealing dinosaur embryos in a faux shaving cream can, he may also be the source of a Easter egg hiding in plain sight referencing the Steven Spielberg project The Goonies.

jeff goldblum on jurassic world 2

If you ever ask Jeff Goldblum a question expecting a straight answer, well, you haven’t seen any of the Thor: Ragnarok marketing which revolves around the mile-a-minute talker giving dramatic readings of Twitter questions and getting hilariously sidetracked.

So when I say he gives more details about his return as the famously bare-chested mathematician Ian Malcolm in Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, I mean details in the loosest way. Goldblum barely even confirms that the chaos mathematician is returning for the Jurassic World sequel, even though we know it to be true. So be prepared for the most Goldblum-y answer to questions about what Ian Malcolm has been up to, and whether he’s learned to button a shirt. Hit the jump to learn more about Jeff Goldblum on Jurassic World 2 and Ian Malcolm’s return.

Jurassic World Evolution Video Game

Ever since Jurassic Park arrived in 1993, people have wanted to see a theme park with real dinosaurs, despite the fact that it would likely go catastrophically wrong at some point. There’s just something about the possibility of seeing dinosaurs in real life that makes people throw caution to the wind.

Now you’ll get a chance to build your own Jurassic Park without endangering the lives of anyone except little digital people inside your computer. A video game called Jurassic World Evolution was just announced at the Gamescom exhibition, and it appears to be a world building game, not unlike Roller Coaster Tycoon or Sim City, where you build your own Jurassic Park and have to keep the dinosaurs contained and the patrons happy. You can get a sneak peek at the game with a trailer below. Read More »

Jurassic Park Dinosaurs Mash-Up

If you didn’t live through the 1990s, then you might not know that there was an inexplicably popular sitcom on ABC called Dinosaurs. Featuring actors in big rubber suits, the series was your average sitcom, but it just so happened to follow a family of walking, talking dinosaurs living during a time when Pangea was still a thing.

Now illustrator Jen Lewis has given Dinosaurs the upgrade it deserves by making the family of prehistoric beasts part of Steven Spielberg’s modern classic Jurassic Park. Earl Sinclair (the father), Fran Sinclair (the mother and Earl’s wife), their three children (son Robbie, daughter Charlene, and Baby Sinclair) and even Fran’s mother, Ethyl are all dinosaurs in the theme park. Plus, the show’s opening credits even get an amusing makeover.

Let the Jurassic Park Dinosaurs mash-up make your dreams come true below. Read More »

ian malcolm in jurassic world 2

This weekend has not been kind to Colin Trevorrow, whose passion project The Book of Henry was lambasted by critics and put the goodwill surrounding him as the choice to direct Star Wars: Episode 9 at risk.

But people still kinda liked Jurassic World, so the sequel that he co-wrote and produced will be anticipated nonetheless. A major part of that anticipation can be credited to the return of Jeff Goldblum as chaos theory mathematician Dr. Ian Malcolm, and Trevorrow recently discussed what fans can expect in that department.

Find out more about Jeff Goldblum in Jurassic World 2 below.
