Check out this amazing concept art for the abandoned Jurassic Park animation

24 August 2015 3:43 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Artist William Stout produced some incredible concept designs for a Jurassic Park animation that was never broadcast.

Despite the '90s trend of turning popular films into animated TV series (Remember the Ace Ventura, Beetlejuice and Back to the Future animations? Of course not!), this particular project never got off the ground (via Flickering Myth).

What happened to the cast of Jurassic Park? Sam Neill and co-stars 22 years later

Stout put the original artwork from 1993 up for sale on his website - including pictures of John Hammond and doctors Alan Grant, Ellie Sattler, and Ian Malcolm - along with some background as to the fate of the project.

"This was not going to be a kiddy show (although kids of all ages, including myself, could enjoy it)," he wrote. "They wanted the show to be a mature primetime series with top writers and state-of-the-art television animation augmented with quite a bit of CG animation. »

'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 »

Just how far can the 'Jurassic World' sequel really go?

23 July 2015 2:50 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

One of the biggest dangling threads in "Jurassic World" is the fate of Dr. Henry Wu. I thought it was fun casting to bring B.D. Wong back for "Jurassic World," but when I saw the film, I was surprised by just how much screen time they gave him and how clearly he's turned the corner from "bright guy hired by Hammond to do something fantastic and ethically questionable" to "mad scientist screwing his theme park bosses while coming up with some sinister applications for his work." What surprised me more was that they let him live. After all, "Jurassic World" is unafraid to kill even the most peripheral character in violent and preposterous manners, so why wouldn't they kill the man responsible for creating the just-plain-evil dinosaur that's running around eating everyone? The obvious answer is that they still need him, and sure enough, "Jurassic World" makes it clear that Dr. »

Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard are opening the park again for a Jurassic World sequel in 2018

23 July 2015 12:10 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard will be back for another prehistoric adventure when a Jurassic World sequel opens in 2018.

Universal Pictures officially announced today (July 23) that a follow-up to this year's record-breaking box office titan will be released on Friday, June 22, 2018.

These are the 15 best movies of 2015 so far: But do you agree with the list?

Jurassic World director Colin Trevorrow is back in the fold to pen the sequel's screenplay with Derek Connolly, despite having initially cast doubt on his return to the franchise.

An announcement of a sequel comes as little surprise, given that Jurassic World is the highest-grossing movie ever distributed by Universal.

Jurassic World also currently sits as the third highest-grossing movie of all-time, having recently overtaken The Avengers. It sits behind only Avatar and Titanic.

'Jurassic World' Overtakes 'Avengers' as 3rd Biggest Movie of All Time

22 July 2015 3:18 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Last night's box office figures put Universal's blockbuster Jurassic World at $1.522 billion, making it the third highest grossing film of all time at the global box office. According to Deadline, the dinosaur adventure surpassed Marvel's The Avengers, which earned $1.52 billion during its 2012 theatrical run. Jurassic World has a lot of work to do if it plans on catching the top two films, James Cameron's Titanic ($2.16 billion worldwide) and Avatar ($2.78 billion).

On the domestic side, Jurassic World is still in fourth place with $614.3 million, just behind Marvel's The Avengers's domestic take of $623.3 million. Titanic and Avatar also hold the top two spots at the domestic box office as well, with $658.6 million and $760.5 million, respectively. Jurassic World should be able to surpass Marvel's The Avengers for the third-highest domestic gross, but whether or not it will have the longevity to challenge Titanic or Avatar remains to be seen.

These are the 15 best movies of 2015 so far: But do you agree with the list?

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

Now we've passed the halfway point of the year and summer blockbuster season is beginning to wind down, what better time to deliver our half-term report on 2015 so far?

From Oscar contenders like Selma and Foxcatcher to blockbusters Mad Max: Fury Road and Jurassic World, it's been a strong year for cinema. Read on to find out our rankings then comment below with your favourites...

15. Fast & Furious 7

The Fast & Furious saga's latest instalment carried with it all the insane action sequences and stunts we've come to expect, but few could have predicted just how emotionally affecting the film turned out to be.

The death of Paul Walker in November 2013 meant that production had to be called off while the filmmakers figured out how to complete the movie without him, and they gave him (and character Brian O'Connor) the perfect send off. Sometimes life presents a fork in the road »

The highs and lows of the soft movie reboot

2 July 2015 11:14 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

This summer has seen Mad Max, Jurassic World and Terminator movies hit cinemas. Ryan looks at what’s good and bad about the soft reboot...

This piece contains mild spoilers for Jurassic World, Mad Max: Fury Road and Terminator: Genisys

If the sequel was a late 20th century phenomenon, ushered into being thanks to the likes of James Bond, The Godfather and Planet Of The Apes, then the soft reboot is a peculiar product of the 21st.

Unlike a conventional remake or reboot, which often abandon characters, plots and settings in favour of an entirely new approach, the soft reboot is less drastic. Jj Abrams’ 2009 Star Trek movie is a prime example; it casts new actors in the roles of the Original Series’ famous roster of characters - Chris Pine replacing William Shatner as Kirk, Zachary Quinto replacing Leonard Nimoy as Spock, and so on - and sends them »

5 reasons why The Lost World: Jurassic Park isn’t as bad as you remember

23 June 2015 11:50 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Simon Columb with 5 reasons why The Lost World: Jurassic Park isn’t as bad as you remember…

You did it. You planned to watch all three Jurassic Park films prior to watching Jurassic World and stalled after the first one.

There are problems with The Lost World: Jurassic Park, sure, but it is crucially a Spielberg film. Not executively-produced, but directed by the bearded cinematic deity himself. But you had to skip it because everyone ‘knows’ how bad it is. Truth be known, I don’t think it is that bad. I don’t see the horrendous train-wreck of a film, many believed it was…

The now-defunct podcast ‘Frankly, My Dear‘ once claimed – and I’m paraphrasing – “The Lost World is so bad that it puts in doubt whether Spielberg actually directed the film and, though people claim it’s only the San Diego bit which is bad, in fact, »

Marketing the 'Jurassic' beast

22 June 2015 5:12 PM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Exclusive: Universal heads orchestrated a precisely calibrated marketing campaign in support of the release that played a critical role in driving the tentpole past $1bn worldwide in record time on Monday.

As production on Jurassic World gained momentum in 2014, top brass at Universal and co-financier Legendary grew increasingly confident that Colin Trevorrow’s action franchise reboot would deliver thrills.

Yet there were potential obstacles. It had been 14 years since Jurassic Park III and 22 years since Jurassic Park, Steven Spielberg’s beloved box office beast that spawned the franchise.

Universal’s global marketing team knew that if their tentpole were to really take off they would need to tap into an enduring love for the series.

“We wanted to make sure Jurassic World was always going to be seen as one of the three big movies this year with Avengers 2 and Star Wars,” says Simon Hewlett, the London-based executive vice-president of Universal Pictures International (Upi, pictured).

Behind Building the Apatosaurus for 'Jurassic World'

22 June 2015 12:03 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Director Steven Spielberg's 1993 classic Jurassic Park was beloved for many reasons, one of which was the use of practical effects to bring many of these iconic dinosaurs to life. For the record-breaking blockbuster Jurassic World, several of those same tactics were used, along with plenty of CGI, and today we have a look at how Legacy Effects used practical effects for the massive Apatosaurus. In what many are calling Jurassic World|'s most touching scene, Legacy was asked to bring a gentle giant to life. Go behind the scenes with the Legacy team as they use both new and traditional methods to create an animatronic Dinosaur!

The scene in question has been shown in the trailers before, set after the massive Indominus Rex escapes its captive environment. Owen Grady (Chris Pratt) and Claire Dearing (Bryce Dallas Howard) come across the massive Apatosaurus, who is near death after a vicious attack. »

Video Game Review – Lego Jurassic World

Kris Wall reviews Lego Jurassic World

You have to hand it to Traveller’s Tales, they’re clearly huge fans of the licences they come to develop for with each new Lego game they make. Despite one coming out seemingly every 6 months now, each one features an obvious love, respect and understanding of the licence material that has managed to translate the worlds of DC, Marvel, Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings & The Hobbit into some hugely fun, charming and endlessly inventive platform games. They’re games by fans, for the fans.

As a kid with a short attention span, I liked and enjoyed a lot of different things in rapid, fickle succession, but my childhood came to be defined by three things, three loves that endured my youth and lasted to this day, Batman, Indiana Jones and Jurassic Park. Traveller’s Tales have already adapted Batman and Indiana Jones »

The national award winning actor’s recent Hollywood film Jurassic World saw the biggest global box office weekend till date. With a staggering collection of $524.1 million in its first weekend, the film is all set to create new records.

Woman Inherits the Earth: Femininity in Jurassic World

18 June 2015 11:06 PM, PDT | Clothes on Film | See recent Clothes on Film news »

There has been an insane amount of discussion online about Bryce Dallas Howard’s character Claire Dearing since the release of Jurassic World (2015, costume designer: Daniel Orlandi), mostly concerning the ‘running in heels’ sequences. I felt it would be interesting to take a broader look at the costumes of the female leads in both Jurassic Park (1993, costume designer April Ferry) and Jurassic World and contrast in the characters.

Dr Ellie Sattler the Paleobotanist as played by Laura Dern in the original movie is a hugely underrated feminist action hero. She is allowed to be clever, brave, practical and physical yet display ‘feminine’ traits at the same time, such as fear, compassion and a nurturing nature. These are characteristics infrequently seen together in Hollywood blockbuster movies. For the bulk of the film, she wears one practical outfit: chino shorts and a baggy salmon-coloured shirt knotted at the waist with a blue high necked vest-top underneath. »

8 Moments That Made Jurassic World Wonderful

17 June 2015 8:17 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Upon the original announcement of the film.s production, Jurassic World evoked memories of the last time we saw genetically enhanced dinosaurs roam around the cinemas. Considering Jurassic Park III had that unfortunate distinction, we were on the fence as to whether Colin Trevorrow.s sequel would be another reason to mourn the franchise, or the vindication we.d long been waiting for. Thankfully, the film turned out to be the nostalgic thrill ride that made us gaze at the screen in wonder. In particular, there are eight moments that really made Jurassic World.s total experience something with which we fell in love. God Creates Dinosaurs Author, chaos expert, and a ladies man about town, Dr. Ian Malcolm has a lot of experience with dinosaurs. Enough that he.s written a book about John Hammond.s experiment in playing God, as well as the experiences he.s probably had »

Jurassic World Review Podcast. FilmBookCast Ep. 10 – Jurassic World (2015), is an audio podcast review in which FilmBook contributor Mike Smith and his co-host Mike DeCriscio discuss their thoughts on the newest film from director Colin Trevorrow, Jurassic World.

Jurassic World is a movie directed by Colin Trevorrow and starring Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Nick Robinson, Ty Simpkins, Vincent D’Onofrio, Irffan Khan, Omar Sy, B.D. Wong, Jake Johnson, and Lauren Lapkus.

Jurassic World‘s plot synopsis: “Twenty-two years after the events of Jurassic Park, Isla Nublar now features a fully functioning dinosaur theme park, Jurassic World, as originally envisioned by John Hammond. After 10 years of operation and visitor rates declining, in order to fulfill a corporate mandate, a new attraction is created to re-spark visitors’ interest, which backfires horribly.”
