'Jurassic Park' Animated TV Show Art Reveals Abandoned Series

19 August 2015 7:12 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

With the monstrous box office success of Jurassic World, which has earned over $1.6 billion worldwide, the franchise is more popular than ever. It may surprise some fans to learn that, after the initial success of Jurassic Park, Universal Cartoon Studios was developing an animated TV series, but, surprisingly, it never got off the ground. Concept artist William Stout has posted a number of his own illustrations from the proposed series on his official website, with all of these pieces available for purchase. FromDirectorStevenSpielberg.tumblr.com also discovered a post from 2014, where the artist spoke about the trailer for the series, and why it never came to pass.

"Although I own a copy, I don't think this trailer is available anywhere. Upon the success of Steven Spielberg's Jurassic Park movie, all kinds of ancillary projects abounded: toys, games, novelties, apparel, etc. Towards the end of all of this merchandising I »

Jurassic World is shattering box office records across the globe, but what happened to the stars of the movie that kick-started it all? Steven Spielberg's 1993 classic Jurassic Park was flawlessly cast, mixing well-known stars and fresh faces in a perfect blockbuster thrill-ride.

With Jurassic World overhauling its stars entirely (just two remain from the original), we take a look back to find out what the stars of Jurassic Park are doing now...

Sam Neill

Already a well-known star when he appeared in Jurassic Park, Neill won himself a fresh fanbase playing Alan Grant, a palaeontologist invited to see John Hammond's breathtaking park up close.

A one-time contender to play James Bond, Neill's early credits include espionage series Reilly: Ace of Spies, Dead Calm and The Hunt for Red October. In the years after Jurassic Park he notched up roles in Event Horizon, The Tudors and Peaky Blinders. Neill »

Welcome to Jurassic Park! 9 greatest moments from Steven Spielberg's classic

13 June 2015 1:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

It doesn't matter how many times you watch Jurassic Park (thanks, ITV2!), Steven Spielberg's '90s dinosaur classic still has the ability to conjure up feelings of awe and wonder.

22 years on from Jurassic Park's original release - and with sequel Jurassic World in cinemas now - we go back to where it all began to pick out the best moments from the trailblazing blockbuster.

1. "Welcome to Jurassic Park!"

Spielberg keeps Jurassic Park's big dino reveal under wraps so that the lead characters - Alan Grant (Sam Neill), Ellie Sattler (Laura Dern) and Ian Malcolm (Jeff Goldblum) - discover the prehistoric characters as the audience does. "Welcome to Jurassic Park!" Richard Attentborough's John Hammond exclaims as we watch a pair of Brontosauri striding majestically through a lake.

2. "I'm simply saying that life finds a way."

For a movie built on size and spectacle, Jurassic Park is surprisingly »

Revisiting 'Jurassic Park' Before Sitting Down with 'Jurassic World'

9 June 2015 11:05 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

My journey with Jurassic Park has its ups and downs. I was just a shade over 16-years-old when the film hit theaters in 1993 and my interest in the movie was sparked by having read Michael Crichton's novel from which it was based. To ask me now, I couldn't detail the differences versus the book and the film (though this video helps with that) other than to remember the book featured a lot more dinosaurs and was a bit more mature than Steven Spielberg's adaptation, from a screenplay co-written by Crichton and David Koepp (Angels & Demons, Spider-Man). So, that summer in June, myself and three friends ventured into the theater to see dinosaurs come to life and that's what we got. Perhaps it was my age, perhaps it was having read the books, but I remember being vaguely underwhelmed, though at the same time I remember pretending I had »

Time Machine: Spielberg and Daughter (with 'Indiana Jones' Actress Capshaw) on Oscars Red Carpet

14 May 2015 2:02 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Steven Spielberg and daughter Destry Spielberg on the Oscars' Red Carpet Steven Spielberg and daughter Destry Steven Spielberg and daughter Destry Spielberg arrive at the 83rd Academy Awards, held on Feb. 27 at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood. Spielberg has taken home two Best Director Oscars: Schindler's List (1993) and Saving Private Ryan (1998). Schindler's List also won Best Picture, but Saving Private Ryan lost to John Madden's Miramax-distributed Shakespeare in Love. There was quite a bit of animosity at the time, as some felt that Miramax, owned by brothers Bob and Harvey Weinstein, overdid its Oscar campaigning – while still managing to sway enough Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences members to vote for its film. Somewhat ironically, at the 2011 Academy Awards ceremony Steven Spielberg presented the Best Picture Award to The King's Speech. Toplining Colin Firth, Helena Bonham Carter, Geoffrey Rush, Guy Pearce, and Claire Bloom, this British production was »

Time Machine: Best Picture Nominee Co-Star Timberlake on the Oscars' Red Carpet

1 May 2015 7:34 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Justin Timberlake on the Oscars' Red Carpet Justin Timberlake at the Academy Awards The Social Network actor Justin Timberlake arrives at the 83rd Academy Awards, which took place on Sunday, Feb. 27, at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood. At the ceremony, Timberlake and Black Swan actress Mila Kunis introduced the nominees – and eventual winners – in the animation categories. Throughout the proceedings, he pretended to be the elusive Banksy, whose Exit Through the Gift Shop was a Best Documentary Feature contender. The joke fell mostly flat, but Timberlake actually elicited some laughs when he imitated three-time Oscar-nominated veteran Kirk Douglas*, who mercilessly stretched the Best Supporting Actress announcement into what seemed like hours. Admittedly, Douglas was funny. (The winner in that particular category turned out to be Melissa Leo for David O. Russell's The Fighter.) As announced by the Justin Timberlake-Mila Kunis duo, the Best Animated Short Film was Shaun Tan »
