‘Jurassic World 3’ or ‘Jurassic Park 6’? Colin Trevorrow Shares Photo with Writing Partner Emily Carmichael

One of this Summer’s largest blockbusters Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom has now released on digital and DVD/Blu-Ray, and with the Box Office numbers currently making it the fourth highest grossing movie domestically this year, it’s no surprise that the third movie in the Jurassic World trilogy is already in the works.

Set for release on June 11 2021, Jurassic World 3 is being penned by Colin Trevorrow and newcomer Emily Carmichael, who is best known for her work on Pacific Rim: Uprising.

Today Colin shared a photo of Emily and himself in France, where they met to discuss the sequel’s story.


While the photo’s intention is not to reveal anything about the story, what’s interesting is that Colin referred to the movie as Jurassic Park 6.

The Jurassic World trilogy stands as a reboot of a once popular franchise and successfully brought it back into mainstream culture. Reboot by definition does not mean remake, and the films continue on the same timeline established in the original trilogy. Dr. Henry Wu and Dr. Ian Malcolm are two characters from the original trilogy that have returned in the new movies, and this small nod by Colin could mean that we will see an even deeper connection to the original Jurassic Park in Emily and Colin’s story.

Not to mention the numerous hints being given by various cast members, it seems likely that paleobotanist Dr. Ellie Sattler may return. But of course, that’s just speculation.

“You can’t put it back in the box!” The ending of Fallen Kingdom sees dinosaurs now spread across the world, owned by various parties and being used for a varying number of tasks. And as Mill’s put it, there is no going back – not just with the animals, but the technology to make new ones.

What’s in store for Jurassic Park 6? There is a world of possibilities for where Emily and Colin could take the story, but one thing’s for sure: this will be the closing film in the current trilogy.

For more from Emily Carmichael, be sure to give her short film Stryka a watch, which she wrote and directed.

Devin and Chelsea Break ‘Jurassic Park: The Ride’ Record Before it Closes for Good

In a heartwarming video, two Jurassic Park fans spend their day riding Jurassic Park: The Ride at Universal Studios Hollywood before it closes for good.

But that’s not all. After breaking the record and completing 61 journeys through Jurassic Park, battling spitting Dilophosaurs and facing an angry T. rex, Devin got on his knees and proposed.

In a sneaky Dennis Nedry fashion, Devin hid the ring within a Barbasol cannister alongside DNA from species across the original park. How cool is that?

The couple who reside in LA have annual passes to the Hollywood park and have made it a tradition to ride the Jurassic Park ride every year on Chelsea’s birthday. The previous record was 60 rides in a day, and the pair rode it a total of 62 times. Along with the proposal, I don’t think this is a day they’ll soon forget!

Did you catch a look at the engagement ring? It was custom made and features mosquito amber. Spared no expense. The Barbasol cannister was a prototype by Chronicle Collectibles who will be releasing it in the near future.

Today marks the final day for Jurassic Park: The Ride. Opened on June 21, 1996, the ride has been a fan favourite since then and remains as one of the only rides left at the park without projections or 3D screens.

While it is a sad day, a new Jurassic World themed ride will take it’s place at the park in 2019 – and hopefully will feature a small glimpse at the original park. The river boat ride is to remain open at the Universal Studios Orlando park, and there are rumours that park will see an expansion within the Jurassic Park area.

Join us in congratulating Chelsea and Devin – what a wonderful way to propose and celebrate your engagement!

‘Jurassic Park Danger!’ Board Game Releases TODAY in the UK!

A few months ago board game lovers were able to visit Isla Nublar with the release of the board game, Jurassic Park: Danger!

A fun role-playing board game features dinosaurs and characters from the original movie who were set against each other in a race for survival. The game is a lot of fun, and we worked with the designers at Ravensburger on a live play-through of the game at the Jurassic Park 25th Anniversary event, which we live streamed.

Unfortunately for some the game itself wasn’t available for purchase outside of the United States. We joined up with the designers again to run a competition for fans in the US and UK to win a copy of the game, with the hope that some fans who have been waiting for the game would get to play it!

Well now, after a long wait, the game is releasing in the UK on 3rd September! With listings already available on Amazon and John Lewis, the board game will retail at £24.99.

Will you be grabbing a copy of Jurassic Park: Danger!? Let us know in the comments section below how you survive the harsh jungles of Cloud Island…

Chronicle Collectibles Debut 1/4 Scale Dr. Alan Grant ‘Jurassic Park’ Statue!

Ever since acquiring the license for the Jurassic Park franchise, our friends at Chronicle Collectibles have been surprising fans with scale model replicas of our favourite dinosaurs from the movies, along with a handful of more unique pieces.

A while back they teased a 1/4 scale statue of Dr. Grant himself, and while news has been slow, the company are excited to announce their very first statue of a human character from Jurassic Park!

Modeled from the T. rex breakout scene, the statue features Dr. Grant staring down the escaped T. rex as it attacks Lex and Tim.

And yes, the flare really lights up! Creative director and co-founder of Chronicle Collectibles Paul Francis shared his enthusiasm for the piece:

“Fans have been clamoring for a 1/4 scale human character from Jurassic Park, so we’re starting with Dr. Grant. Picking the key scene of Dr. Grant facing down the T. Rex seemed like the perfect representation to start with. We hope to do more human character statues from Jurassic Park in the future.”

As with every Chronicle piece this will be run for a limited time. It’s roughly 22.5″ tall and the base is 13″ in diameter. And what a beautiful base that is!

Dr. Alan Grant can be pre-ordered now on their website for $599.99, although there are also a number of payment plans available!

Will you be picking up Dr. Grant? What other items from Chronicle are you a fan of? Let’s get the discussion going below!

Drop Dead Drops Exclusive ‘Jurassic Park’ Clothing Collection

UK based clothing company Drop Dead has just launched the Capsule Collection, a unique clothing line to celebrate both the release of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom and the 25th anniversary of the movie that started it all – Jurassic Park.

Working in partnership with Universal Brand Development, Drop Dead noticeably chose a vintage, Classic Jurassic style for the line, remaining inline with the early 90s aesthetic seen in Jurassic Park.

This iconic line features bomber jackets, shirts, bags sporting nostalgia-inducing graphics including dinosaurs, maps of Isla Nublar, and writing reminiscent of the text seen on Nedry’s computer. And speaking of Dennis Nedry, a Nedry themed buttoned shirt and shorts can also be found in this collection.

The clothing company was founded by Oliver Sykes (lead singer of Bring Me the Horizon) who is a huge fan of the original movie. When discussing this collection, he said:

“Jurassic Park has been my favorite film of all time since I saw it in 1993. I was always into dinosaurs as a kid, but Jurassic Park truly sent me into obsession. To be able to do a collaboration with the franchise has been a lifelong goal and dream. After producing many designs influenced by Jurassic Park for Drop Dead, being able to use the actual material for the real has been amazing and I couldn’t be more stoked on what we’ve produced.”

Isla Nublar was Site A. Isla Sorna was Site B. Drop Dead’s laboratory is Site D, and that’s where all of these products – or specimens – were created.

The overgrown foliage, chemical jars and decontamination zone theme can be found in Drop Dead Clothing’s London store, seen in the promotional video above. Their Sheffield store also followed suit and re-opened with a design refresh and a brand new vegan restaurant, a bar and a store.

The collection is a wonderful addition to Jurassic Park’s return to popular culture and features inspired designs reflecting the designer’s love for the 1993 film. The items look like they came straight out of the 1990’s!

‘DDxJP’ is available now at Drop Dead stores and through their official website.

New Fan Film ‘Jurassic World: Exodus’ Takes Us Back to Nublar Before Fallen Kingdom

The Jurassic Park Motorpool are back with a brand new fan film! Army veteran and fan film producer Gregory Wong presents Jurassic World: Exodus, a fan film following the story of a Special Forces recovery team sent to Isla Nublar to extract a missing soldier and Seismologist.

The film is a collaboration of many fans from across the world and was filmed on location on the island of Oahu, Hawaii. Turn the sound up:

The team behind Exodus are no strangers to the fan film world, having released Jurassic World: Asset Containment Unit back in 2015 just before Jurassic World hit theaters. Three years on and Greg has brought us a new fan film to indulge our cravings with.

While fan films are usually kept within the ‘zero budget’ category, that’s not to say the effort put in doesn’t pay off. Jurassic World: Exodus was filmed on location in Hawaii, using locations seen before in Lost and the Jurassic series. The beautiful jungles of Oahu, mixed with Motorpool Jeeps, a wealth of weaponary and legitimate US Army props, gear and uniforms, this military based fan film shows no signs of restraint when it comes to scale.

Many of the prop firearms and uniforms were donated by companies like Evike and JKarmy, but the film’s leading star – a full size Velociraptor animatronic head – was created by Marco Cavassa. The Visual Effects were a collaboration between Kerr Robinson and Joe losczack.

The cast and crew were mostly made up of U.S. veterans, including Marines Travis Haley, Sean Jennings and Robert Bryce, Army veterans Bryon Beisek and Greg Wong, Navy Corpsman Nic Cornett (who directed the film) and Air Force veterans Mike Jones and Shannon Corbeil.

The Jurassic Park Jeeps were provided by Oahu residents Sidney and Jacob, who I was lucky enough to meet last year, and they add a huge amount of nostalgia and credibility to any Jurassic project. There are literally hundreds of replica Jurassic Park Jeeps across the world, all part of the Motorpool.

The scale of the movie really is something to adore.

We had a lot of fun watching Jurassic World: Exodus and hope you do too! A huge congratulations is due to Greg, Nic, and the entire team for bringing this fan project together and delivering an exciting 25 minutes of Jurassic fun.

Be sure to check out the full movie here, and some behind the scenes from both fan films across Greg’s channel.

A 25 Foot Ian Malcolm ‘Jurassic Park’ Statue Has Taken Over London

The Jurassic Park franchise has been celebrating hard this year. With the release of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom dominating the Summer box office, 2017 also marks 25 years since the original movie captivated audiences, with fans being treated to a three day celebration at Universal Studios Hollywood.

But topping all of that is this 25 foot statue of Jeff Goldblum, which was erected on the banks of the River Thames in London just this morning.

Sitting just in front of Tower Bridge, the statue was commissioned by Now TV – who wanted to celebrate Jurassic Park in their own unique, yet sexy way.

Featuring Dr. Ian Malcolm’s all-black clothing complete with unbuttoned shirt, the statue replicates the character’s iconic pose during the third act of the movie.

Fans living in or visiting London will have the chance to see this statue up close until July 26, where it will then no doubt become part of Jurassic World: The Exhibition.

Be sure to share your photos with us if you’re lucky enough to see #JurassicJeff!

Mondo Games’ Reveals New Tabletop Game ‘Jurassic Park: The Chaos Gene’

Today, Mondo Games revealed brand new information about their upcoming tabletop game Jurassic Park: The Chaos Gene.

First announced last November and teased at the Jurassic Park 25th Anniversary Celebration event a couple of months ago, details of the game have been exclusively revealed to Nerdist, who spoke to Mondo Games Creative Director Luke Byers.

The Chaos Gene is a asymmetrical miniatures tabletop game where you take control of a faction in the park – be it InGen personnel, park visitors, dinosaurs – and do whatever it takes to leave in one piece. Luke Byers explains:

“In our approach to Jurassic Park: The Chaos Gene, we took many of our favorite elements of a traditional dungeon crawl style board game and spliced them with one of our favorite films of all time. The goal was to create something truly unique and incredibly fun to play.”

This 2-4 player game allows you to choose from one of the four factions, including InGen, park visitors, Velociraptors, or the Queen of the island, Lady Rex.

Each of the factions have their own unique objectives that affect the gameplay for example, InGen want to keep the park running to ensure their investment is safe, the park visitors’ goal is to survive, the Velociraptors have one goal: seek and destroy, and the T. rex is ‘hungry for victory’.

Set on Isla Nublar, the game will feature detailed miniatures of your favorite characters as seen above, with artwork by the talented Matthew Woodson.

If you’re as San Diego Comic Con next weekend then be sure to head to booth #435 for a first in-person glimpse at the game box. You will also be able to grab an exclusive patch featuring one of the game’s factions:

Will you be picking up a copy of Jurassic Park: The Chaos Gene? The tabletop game is set for a release this fall on both Mondo’s website and at local game stores!

With the aid of Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard, the For The Win team organised an incredible day at Jurassic Park itself in Universal Studios Hollywood!

The team at For The Win truly created a one-of-a-kind experience for young Liam, a kid that’s been through so much. He is now a movie star in his favourite franchise!

Paleontologist Dr. Jim Kirkland also recorded this video message for Liam:

In the words of the For The Win team, ‘Liam is an inspiration, a warrior, and most importantly, a great kid’, and we want to wish our own thoughts and love to young Liam, who’s already faced some of life’s hardest battles. You are an inspiration, kid!

We also want to highlight the heartwarming work that our friends at the For The Win Project are doing and help spread the word. Kids like Liam have already been dealt a bad hand and it’s people like Jesse, Jaimie and many others who help to brighten their day.
