27 August 2014 3:37 AM, PDT | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

It was recently reported that Richard Attenborough, the man who directed "Gandhi" and starred in "Jurassic Park," passed away. In "Jurassic Park," he played John Hammond, the creator of the park. Now that director Colin Trevorrow is working on "Jurassic World," he shared a photo from the set as a way to honor the actor. The photo is of a statue of Attenborough/Hammond that will likely greet park visitors in the new film. It's not clear if Hammond is no longer alive in the movie, but the statue will now have an extra significance to it. Check out the photo below. Photo: (click to enlarge) »

‘Jurassic World’ Set Photo Reveals Richard Attenborough Tribute

26 August 2014 6:37 PM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

We were all saddened at the passing of Lord Richard Attenborough, a man whose career spanned over 70 years and earned him two Oscars for his directorial masterpiece, Gandhi, as well as two Golden Globes for performances in The Sand Pebbles and Doctor Doolittle.Most know Attenborough best for his role as the entrepreneur John Hammond, who in the 1993 film Jurassic Park envisioned a state of the art park where people could witness real life dinosaurs. Attenborough charmed audiences with Hammond’s enthusiasm, however misguided, but never played Hammond as a buffoon, instead giving the character a sad, almost tragic edge.

Over 20 years later, the Jurassic Park franchise is ready for a comeback with Jurassic World in 2015. This latest film in the series finds Hammond’s dream a reality, as a fully ...

Jurassic World Director Colin Trevorrow Pays Tribute to Lord Richard Attenborough

26 August 2014 11:38 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Following the sad passing of Lord Richard Attenborough, Jurassic World director Colin Trevorrow has revealed a new behind the scenes image which offers up a look at a statue of the character – John Hammond – he played in the first two Jurassic Park movies which were helmed by Steven Spielberg.

The legendary actor and director’s health had been failing for a number of years, so a cameo appearance in Jurassic World was always out of the question. It should be very interesting to see how Hammond is referenced in Jurassic World now, especially as the park has reopened and is actually a success now by all accounts.

Based on what we’ve heard so far about Jurassic World, it’s shaping up to be one of 2015′s best movies, and Colin Trevorrow is a promising young filmmaker who looks set to follow up some great lower budget Indies with a »

This Is How Jurassic World Is Paying Tribute To John Hammond

26 August 2014 9:58 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

In Memoriam. pic.twitter.com/5jL7Sh9Hpr. Colin Trevorrow (@colintrevorrow) August 25, 2014 This weekend we lost the legendary Lord Richard Attenborough, and even today his loss is still felt. The tremendous actor/director of such films as The Great Escape, The Sand Pebbles, Brighton Rock, Gandhi and Chaplin left a full life and a grand legacy behind, which has mostly been highlighted by his work in Steven Spielberg's 1993 masterpiece Jurassic Park. Now while Attenborough did have an enormous legacy before his role as the eccentric John Hammond, it is that role that most modern audiences identify him with. A role that is being paid tribute by friends, colleagues, and even those who did not get to work with him, but continue his legacy tangentially. Case in point is Colin Trevorrow's tweet from last night, showcasing what can be assumed to be a memorial to John Hammond in the »

Directed by Colin Trevorrow (Safety Not Guaranteed), Jurassic World is the fourth installment of the popular film franchise that originated with Steven Spielberg's 1993 film sci-fi actioner Jurassic Park based on the novel by Michael Crichton.

Trevorrow Tweets an Attenborough Tribute of 'Jurassic World' Statue

25 August 2014 3:42 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"Welcome to Jurassic Park!" With the death of the great Richard Attenborough this week, the industry has been outspoken in their love for the legendary actor/filmmaker. One of the roles he is remembered for the most is Dr. John Hammond from Jurassic Park, the man who loved dinosaurs so much he had to bring them back to life. Steven Spielberg wrote about how Attenborough "was the perfect ringmaster to bring the dinosaurs back", but now the director of the new Jurassic World, Colin Trevorrow, has chimed in with his own "In Memoriam": a photo of a John Hammond statue, which we can only assume is from the new movie. Trevorrow explains the new park, which is a ferry ride from Costa Rica (via SlashFilm): "It has elements of a biological preserve, a safari, a zoo, and a theme park. There is a luxury resort with hotels, restaurants, »

Lord Richard Attenborough Gets Immortalized in Jurassic World

25 August 2014 2:21 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Over the weekend, the sad news came in that Lord Richard Attenborough has passed away shortly before his 91st birthday.  Attenborough is well known for many projects, but many later generations knew well from his portrayal of John Hammond in Jurassic Park.  Jurassic World has finished filming and today, the film's director took to twitter to show off a new image that shows how Attenborough's character will be remembered in the film...

Earlier today Colin Trevorrow posted this image on Twitter, only saying "In Memoriam":

There's no indication of where this image came from, but considering the news of Attenborough's death was so sudden, it's likely that this image is from the set of the new film, Jurassic World.  We know in the new film that Jurassic World is a fully functioning theme park, fulfilling the dream Hammond had back in the first film.  So it would make sense »

Actor and Director Richard Attenborough, of 'Jurassic Park' and 'Gandhi' Fame, Has Died at 90

25 August 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Richard Attenborough, the British actor and director known for his acclaimed work both in front of and behind the camera, has died. He was 90.

Attenborough's celebrated career spanned more than six decades, beginning with his film acting debut in 1942 Best Picture Oscar winner "In Which We Serve." He went on to become an accomplished director as well, snagging the Best Director Academy Award for the 1982 film "Gandhi," which won eight Oscars.

While he continued to direct into the 1990s, helming the Robert Downey Jr.-starring "Chaplin" in 1992, he was perhaps best known to the Millennial generation for a pair of performances in beloved '90s flicks "Jurassic Park" and "Miracle on 34th Street." In the former, Attenborough played eccentric billionaire John Hammond, who bankrolled the titular dinosaur-filled theme park; in the latter remake, he played Santa Claus.

Attenborough, who attained the title of Lord in his native Britain, was remembered by U. »
