Colin Trevorrow discusses the D-Rex, Mosasaurus and Raptors from the Jurassic World trailer

5 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Earlier in the week we got our first look at the hotly-anticipated fourth instalment of the Jurassic Park franchise with the arrival of the first trailer for Jurassic World. Since then, we’ve heard director Colin Trevorrow discussing the use of CGI – particularly for the park’s gate – and now he’s spoken in some depth about the trailer during an interview with Empire.

On the introduction of the genetically engineered hybrid ‘D-Rex': “There is no shortage of awesome [real] dinosaurs. We could have populated this entire story with new species that haven’t been in any of these movies. But this new creation is what gave me a reason to tell another Jurassic Park story. We have the most awe-inspiring creatures to ever walk the Earth right in front of us, but for some reason that’s not enough. We’re always hungry for the next thing, and those who »

Jurassic World Director Discusses Movie and Trailer Details

10 hours ago | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Hold on to your butts. Earlier this week Universal Pictures and Legendary Pictures released the first trailer for director Colin Trevorrow's Jurassic World. It seems like a lot of fans were disappointed by its lack of dinosaurs. I'm sure there are going to be plenty of terrifying bloodthirsty dinos in the film, though, so I wouldn't worry.

Trevorrow recently did an interview with Empire to discuss movie and the trailer that was released. A few of the questions that the trailer raised were: Why would these people genetically create a new dinosaur, has Chris Pratt's character trained the Velociraptors and will we see the iconic Tyrannosaurus Rex? About this new dino creation, he said,

“This new creation is what gave me a reason to tell another Jurassic Park story. We have the most awe-inspiring creatures to ever walk the Earth right in front of us, but for some reason that’s not enough. »

T-Rex Revealed in 'Jurassic World' Viral Video

10 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Dinosaur fever is spreading throughout the nation after the first trailer for Jurassic World debuted earlier this week, along with new details from director Colin Trevorrow yesterday. Today, Universal Pictures has updated the official website for this highly-anticipated adventure, which includes a viral video and photos of a few of the different dinosaurs. The viral video is essentially an advertisement for the Isla Nublar Hilton resort, showcasing the numerous amenities this hotel and resort has to offer.

The website itself is chocked full of tidbits, some of which reference the original 1993 classic, Jurassic Park. The park features a restaurant named Winston's, a reference to the late Stan Winston, who designed the dinosaur animatronics for the original Jurassic Park. If you look at the restaurant's menu, the top right entree is the Chilean Sea Bass, the same meal that the original Jurassic Park characters had before going on their mission. There »

Colin Trevorrow Talks About the New Dinosaurs In Jurassic World; Official Site Updated

12 hours ago | | See recent news »

While I'm fine overall with the Jurassic World trailer teaser (my only real issue was the incomplete CG, which isn't a complaint at all considering the fact it will all be done in time for the release of the finished film), a few people had some nagging questions about the giant aquatic dinosaur and the seemingly friendly nature of the Velociraptors Chris Pratt rides with in the final shot of the teaser. But now director Colin Trevorrow (after addressing some of the CG concerns earlier this week) has endeavored to answer a few of those questions.  Hit the jump for what he has to say about the new dinosaurs in the film.  Jurassic World is due in theaters in 2D, 3D and IMAX on June 12, 2015.  The film also stars Bryce Dallas HowardNick RobinsonTy Simpkins, Vincent D’Onofrio, Irrfan KhanJake JohnsonOmar Sy and Judy Greer.   Also, the »

Leaked Jurassic World Image Of D-Rex (Hybrid Dinosaur)

27 November 2014 2:49 PM, PST | | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

  We live in a world where people never seem to be satisfied with anything. They want to see the next big thing. Director Colin Trevorrow said that was the idea behind the genetically modified dinosaur in Jurassic World. This new dinosaur, known as D-Rex, was created because park-goers had a desire to see a dinosaur that was even bigger than a T-Rex. Based on the trailer, it looks like they'll end up regretting that. Below, is a leaked image of the mutant dinosaur. Outside of a Lego figure, this is our first look at the creature. Enjoy!   Steven Spielberg returns to executive produce the long-awaited next installment of his groundbreaking Jurassic Park series, Jurassic World. Colin Trevorrow directs the epic action-adventure from a screenplay he wrote with Derek Connolly. Frank Marshall and Patrick Crowley join the team as producers. Starring: Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Ty Simpkins, Nick Robinson, Irrfan Khan, »

Director Talks The "Jurassic World" Trailer

27 November 2014 1:41 PM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Following on from the release of the trailer for "Jurassic World" earlier this week, the film's director Colin Trevorrow has broken it down for Empire and in the descriptions has dropped a couple of new tidbits about the highly anticipated sequel.

As we know, and as the trailer sets out, the film sees us returning to the original Jurassic Park location of Isla Nublar (rather than the Isla Sorna of the two previous sequels). Now, it's a working theme park with live dinosaurs that attracts millions every year.

Trevorrow says in the film, the park has been open since 2005. The company of Masrani Global bought InGen after John Hammond's passing and had the very earnest mission of realising his dream. The action though is set in the present day, the park having been opened for nearly a decade and everyone's comfortable with how it operates.

First look at the D-Rex from Jurassic World?

27 November 2014 1:32 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It was absent from the first trailer earlier this week, but an image is doing the rounds online which claims to show the hybrid ‘D-Rex’ from next year’s dino-sequel Jurassic World. We have no idea if this is legit or not, but it does match the design of the leaked Lego set that we were kindly asked to remove. Here you go, and sorry about the quality…

Colin Trevorrow Offers Up New Details On Jurassic World

27 November 2014 10:36 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It’s been a mere two days since the first trailer for Jurassic World roared online and already fans and critics alike have dissected seemingly every frame. Some even took to the idea of a genetically-modified dinosaur immediately, while others were more critical of the reboot’s B-movie-esque plot.

But Sharktopus Vs. Pteracuda this is not, and the film’s director, Colin Trevorrow, spoke to Empire about the key moments from the recently-released trailer and how he considers a man-made dinosaur to be the natural evolution of the franchise.

“There is no shortage of awesome [real] dinosaurs. We could have populated this entire story with new species that haven’t been in any of these movies. But this new creation is what gave me a reason to tell another Jurassic Park story. We have the most awe-inspiring creatures to ever walk the Earth right in front of us, but for some reason that’s not enough. »

9 Ways the 'Jurassic World' Trailer Recalls the Original Movie

27 November 2014 6:24 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Arriving earlier than expected, Universal has debuted the first trailer for Jurassic World in time for the Thanksgiving holiday. And with it comes our first real look at this true sequel to the 1993 original Jurassic Park directed by Steven Spielberg. While Spielberg is back as a producer this time out, the reigns have been handed over to Colin Trevorrow, best known for his low budget time travel comedy Safety Not Guaranteed. Word is still out on whether this will live up to the standards set by beloved franchise, but there is no denying that the footage is exciting, beautifully shot, and holds quite a few surprises of its own. It also carefully plays to our nostalgia for the first movie, which is now more than twenty years old. Paying homage to classic shots, and bringing back some important visual references, this first Jurassic World sneak peek recalls what has come before it like a champ. »

'Guardians of the Galaxy 2': James Gunn Refuses to Include Nova

26 November 2014 8:15 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Long before Guardians of the Galaxy hit theaters, earlier versions of the screenplay featured the popular Marvel character Richard Rider, a.k.a. Nova, with Nathan Fillion rumored to play him at one point. Although he never ended up in the movie, concept art illustrations released in August showed us what Nova may have looked like on the big screen. Now that Guardians of the Galaxy is a huge hit, with Guardians of the Galaxy 2 already in the works, director James Gunn was asked on his Facebook page over the weekend if Nova may be popping up in the sequel. Unfortunately for Nova fans, he will not be included in the story.

"I don't want Nova right now because I think Quill being the only earthling is important. That serves the entire moviegoing audience and not just the handful of Nova fans. Sorry if that upsets you."

Oscar Best Picture: What’s Wrong With Well-Crafted Entertainment?

26 November 2014 6:37 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

What do voters have against movies that are well-made — and also as entertaining as hell?

Among this year’s typically serious and/or weighty crop of frontrunners, there are at least three dramas set during wartime (“Unbroken,” “American Sniper” and “The Imitation Game”) and a slew of biopics (all three of the previously mentioned films, “Selma,” “The Theory of Everything” and “Wild.”) All of these films, along with “Foxcatcher,” are based on true stories.

But can’t Oscar make room for some titles that represent exceedingly well-crafted fun? While a “District 9” might slip in from time to time, odds are fairly slim that “Guardians of the Galaxy,” a film that critics and audiences adored, will sneak into the best picture noms. Over at Rotten Tomatoes, “Guardians” is sitting pretty with a 90% fresh rating, higher than many frontrunners (“Theory of Everything”: 82%, “Imitation Game”: 84%, “Foxcatcher”: 85%.) The film was »
