jurassic world fallen kingdom jeff goldblum

For a franchise so steeped in nostalgia, Jurassic World has been fairly light on the cameos from the original Jurassic Park movies. B.D. Wong, who reprised his role as the devious scientist Dr. Henry Wu in Jurassic World, was the only familiar face in the new trilogy — until now.

The appearance of Jeff Goldblum in the new film has been receiving a good share of the hype for the Jurassic World sequel. And why wouldn’t it? The chaos mathematician became a pop culture icon with his alluring, half-shirtless turn in 1993’s Jurassic Park, and would return in 1997’s Jurassic Park: The Lost World. But he isn’t likely to make the mistake of a third trip to a dinosaur-ridden island in Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom.

When Colin Trevorrow first signed on to direct Jurassic World, he mapped out the plot of an entire trilogy. Even as he stepped away from Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, with J.A. Bayona stepping into the director’s chair, Trevorrow still had a hand in crafting where the new Jurassic trilogy would go. And it turns out the director had so many ideas for the films that he nearly let it all get packed into the Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom story.

Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom Animatronic Dinosaurs

As Jurassic Park has become a modern classic over the years, one of the constant compliments paid to the film is how the special effects used to bring the dinosaurs to life have aged surprisingly well. There are digital effects and animatronics that look more realistic than any of the digital dinosaurs we’ve seen in any of the Jurassic Park sequels. But it sounds like the dinosaurs of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom might give them a run for their money, at least when it comes to the practical effects in the film.

While /Film was visiting the set of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom last year, we sat down for an extensive conversation with longtime Jurassic Park franchise producer Frank Marshall (who has also been behind the likes of the Indiana Jones and The Bourne Identity franchises) and Jurassic World producer Pat Crowley. During our chat with the producers, we found out Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom will have more animatronic dinosaurs than any sequel in the franchise, and they’re far more sophisticated too.

In June 2017, I traveled to Honolulu, Hawaii to visit the set of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom. This week, we will be running a ton of coverage from this visit, beginning with our interview with producers Frank Marshall and Pat Crowley.

Amazon Sci-Fi Shows

Netflix may still be leading the way in the volume and overall quality of original streaming content, but Hulu is catching up quickly, especially after their Emmy win for Outstanding Drama Series for The Handmaid’s Tale. Meanwhile, Amazon Studios still has a lot of work to do if they’re going to keep up.

While Amazon has found great success with Transparent, the rest of their shows have generally failed to make as big of a splash as the more popular shows from Netflix and Hulu. But Amazon hopes to change that by diving into a handful of genre titles, specifically in the realm of science fiction. Find out about the new Amazon sci-fi shows below. Read More »
