Making of Jurassic World

As a sequel, Jurassic World is naturally beholden to Jurassic Park in a number of ways. It expands on the mythology established by Steven Spielberg‘s original film, and calls back to it in ways both obvious and unexpected.

But Jurassic World isn’t just indebted to Jurassic Park in a general sense. As revealed by director Colin Trevorrow, Jurassic World came out of one very specific quote in Jurassic Park — and another very specific quote will serve as the basis of Jurassic World 2. Find out which Jurassic Park quote inspired Jurassic World after the jump.

Making of Jurassic World

As of now, Jurassic World is the biggest movie of the year. That might change this winter once Star Wars: The Force Awakens hits theaters, but for now Universal Pictures is having a huge year at the box office, so we’ll let the studio bask in that glory for awhile.

This fall, fans will be able to bring home the Indominus Rex when the movie hits Blu-Ray and DVD on October 20. (Or you can get it on Digital HD a bit earlier on October 1st.) Universal is teasing all the special features that will be available on the home video release, showing the making of Jurassic World. There’s a collection of eight short featurettes you can watch below! Read More »

Lego Jurassic World

There was a lot to like about this summer’s Jurassic World. Chris Pratt! Velociraptors! T-Rexes! Hybrid dinosaur monstrosities even bigger than T-Rexes! Bryce Dallas Howard’s apparently supernatural ability to sprint in stilettos! The one thing it didn’t have, though, was Legos. Which seems like an especially glaring oversight when we all know how well Chris Pratt and Legos go together.

A new video short thankfully fixes that by remaking all of Jurassic World in Lego form. Plus, it gets the job done in just 90 seconds, saving you approximately 122 and a half minutes. Watch the Lego Jurassic World video after the jump.  Read More »
