While there’s a lot of love out there for Jurassic World, one can’t help but wish that the massive blockbuster sequel was a little more loyal to the original Jurassic Park by having more practical dinosaur effects.
Digital effects bring most of the dinosaurs to life in Jurassic World, but at least one pivotal scene made use of an impressive animatronic apatosaurus, for what is probably the most believable dinosaur sequence in the entire movie. And now you can find out how they brought the apatosaurus to life. Watch the Jurassic World apatosaurus featurette after the jump! Read More »

It’s been just one week since Jurassic World hit theaters, and everyone still can’t stop talking about the triumphant return of dinosaurs to the big screen. Whether you liked the movie or not, you can’t deny that it’s quite the box office milestone. There’s a chance it could take the top spot at the box office again this weekend unless the family-drawing power of Pixar has anything to say about it.
So if you’re anxious for some more talk about Jurassic World, why not listen to a one-hour chat with director Colin Trevorrow and star Chris Pratt? The two discuss the huge expectations that come with making a Jurassic Park sequel, some similarities to Back to the Future Part II (which I didn’t think about until now) and much more.

A near $209 million opening automatically makes a movie a cultural milestone. Such is currently happening with Colin Trevorrow‘s Jurassic World. So far, the funniest result by far is this set of photos. A few zookeepers have taken to social media to recreate the image above, which features Owen Grady (Chris Pratt) carefully controlling a heard of raptors. So what does it look like when a real zookeeper emulates his pose with a bunch of walruses, ostriches or chickens? Find out about the Jurassic World zookeeper meme below.
UPDATE: After posting this story Wednesday morning, this exploded online. See a ton of additional images below.

It’s only been a few days, and Jurassic World has already grossed more than 95% of the movies released in 2015, after breaking records for the highest opening weekend of all-time, both domestically and worldwide.

And if you’re anxious to dive into the making of the film, The SoundWorks Collection is right on schedule with their look behind the scenes at The Sound of Jurassic World. Talking with sound designer Peter Horner and supervising sound editor and sound designer Al Nelson from Skywalker Sound, this featurette looks at how Jurassic Park informed the latest sequel, as well as the new sound work done on the film.

Now that Jurassic World has finally been realized on the big screen, and John Hammond’s vision for a fully functional dinosaur theme park has come true (for better or worse), there’s no better time to look at the designs that made the film possible.
As we all know, making a movie is no small feat, and the effort can require hundreds of people working together to make it happen. But before cameras are rolling and sets are built, a whole slew of artists are rounded up to help design the look of the movie, from the sets to the dinosaurs to the wardrobe and everything you see on screen. And a great collection of concept art for Jurassic World has popped up online now that the film is in theaters, and it’s pretty cool to compare it to what we saw in the final product.

After Jurassic World raked in over $511 million at the worldwide box office this weekend, it’s safe to say that director Colin Trevorrow is now a big time filmmaker. He may not be returning for Jurassic World 2, but he will forever be credited with reinvigorating the Jurassic Park franchise, whether fans are pleased by his work or not.
But before he became an indie sensation turned blockbuster filmmaker, Trevorrow was just another aspiring filmmaker. And thanks to the magic of the internet, we can take a look at some of the director’s very early work. Below you can watch Colin Trevorrow’s Home Base, a short film he directed back in 2002 when he was 26 years old.
