Donald Gennaro Accepts Lifetime Achievement Award on Jimmy Kimmel

Talk show host Jimmy Kimmel is hosting The Oscars on February 26th, and as part of the run up to that he took a moment on his latest show to honor what could be the greatest performance in cinema history – when the blood-sucking lawyer gets eaten off the toilet in Jurassic Park.

Martin Ferrero, who played Donald Gennaro in Jurassic Park, took to the stage to accept the custom award and gave an emotional speech which you can check out below:

While this of course is only a bit of fun, it’s nice to still see Jurassic Park in the spotlight. I mean, just look at that award:

A couple of years ago our friends at Jurassic Cast spoke with Martin Ferraro about Jurassic Park so be sure to give that a listen!

With Jurassic World 2 set to start filming in London very soon, make sure you’re following our Twitter, Facebook and Instagram for round the clock news and information! We’ll be following the production just like last time, and if you catch wind of anything then be sure to send us a message!

Jurassic World Sequel Looking to Film in Harrow, London?

With cameras set to start rolling in less than a month, it’s no surprise that we’re beginning to hear of more locations getting the confirmation that they’ll feature in the sequel to 2015’s Jurassic World. A few days ago a Spanish website confirmed that Brecon Beacons in Wales was a location, and we already know that the islands of Hawaii will be utilised for filming, along with Pinewood Studios in London.

But now we’re hearing that another location in London – outside of Pinewood Studios – is apparently being eyed by location managers for the sequel. Dijeirusan reported on Facebook that the area of Pinner, Harrow in North West London has been scouted by location managers.

“I had Harrow Council Planning Department visit my house, to approve my new extension. They saw my Jurassic Park collection, and said the filmmakers were scouting Pinner (an area in Harrow) for filming”

He went on to say that they didn’t have any other information to offer other than that. The area of Pinner is described as a wealthy area of the London Borough of Harrow in northwest London.

Without any further information we have to take news like this with a pinch of salt – and it’s unclear in exactly what capacity the area of Pinner might be used. Due to its relatively short distance to Pinewood Studios, it’s a logical location for the production, and it may even be that they’re only shooting an interior location here, which could stand in for anywhere in the world. This in no way confirms that the actual city of London will feature in the sequel – but at this point, it could.

Either way, this little rumour is reminiscent of the days before social media, when internet message boards and word of mouth were the main source for film news. Council Workers liking the look of someone’s Jurassic Park collection and handing out some information sounds like it was pulled straight out of 2002! Huge thanks to Dijeirusan for sharing!

‘Baby Raptor in the Nursery’ Scene from Jurassic Park Revealed in Rare Storyboards!

Last week we shared storyboards that show an alternate ending for Dennis Nedry in Jurassic Park. Those storyboards were posted by Jurassic Time creator Derrick Davis, who has spent the past few weeks combing through the Early Sequence Storyboard Binder which he won at Phil Tippett’s online auction.

Today Derrick shared a new sequence, one that never made it to the final screenplay but was strikingly similar to the original scene in the novel. The sequence takes place when the park guests are introduced to the baby Velociraptor, which is revealed as so by Chief Geneticist Dr. Henry Wu. In the movie you’ll remember that the guests witness the baby Raptor break out of its shell and are concerned when Dr Wu. reveals the breed.

In these storyboards however, we can see a different scene unfold. It takes place in the Nursery, and an already hatched baby Raptor is perched upon a technician’s shoulder. Check out some highlights below!

        

Along with the full storyboards which you can make your way through here, Derrick also included the original script pages and a piece of concept art showing the Baby Raptor in action:

As I stated in the previous article, it’s incredibly exciting to see such old material now come into the spotlight for us all to see. If you liked seeing the above, have a read of the alternate ending to the Nedry vs Dilophosaurus scene, as well as the alternate storyboard shots for the Main Road sequence and an entirely different ending to the movie!

Thanks again to Derrick for sharing these! He also filmed the unboxing of his win, which you can see below:

Spanish Magazine Confirms Jurassic World 2 Will Shoot in Brecon Beacons, Wales

With Jurassic World set to begin filming next month at Pinewood Studios in London and later heading to Hawaii to film on location, we often wonder if there are any other filming locations on the list.

In July of last year we heard that Wales was being considered for the sequel and assumed that the Pinewood Studios situated there was being eyed for studio use. However, the following week we heard that the production team had actually expressed interest in the lush countryside of Brecon Beacons.

While it was never fully confirmed that this location was on the agenda, and as time went on we began to hear less about it, we now have received some form of confirmation that Jurassic World 2 will utilize this landscape.

Director J.A. Bayona was recently interviewed with a Spanish magazine about his latest movie, A Monster Calls. While he couldn’t speak in detail about Jurassic World 2 with ‘magazinedigital‘, he did confirm that the upcoming sequel will indeed film in Brecon Beacons, Wales.

It is unclear at this point in time how the location will be used, as it’s possible that these valley landscapes seen above may stand in for a location on the islands, but with filming set to take place in Hawaii this seems unlikely. Will dinosaurs have reached the mainland in some form? Did Masrani have another facility here?

Give a listen to our latest podcast episode where we recap on all of the latest casting news, the Jurassic World: Survivor video game, the filming locations, as well as a new interview with Chronicle Collectibles:

Early Jurassic Park Storyboards Reveal an Alternate Ending for Nedry’s Dilophosaurus Attack

With the Jurassic Park franchise making a comeback thanks to 2015’s Jurassic World, more and more rare and previously unseen behind the scenes material is beginning to show up among fans. Derrick Davis of Jurassic Time recently won an auction that provided him with a rare glimpse at some early storyboards from the production of Jurassic Park.

The storyboards were from Dinosaur Supervisor Phil Tippett’s personal collection, and along with a number of other items, went up for auction on the Prop Store last October. Some lucky fans were able to snag some incredibly rare props and documents from the movie, and Derrick has been kind enough to share his haul online!

The storyboards show a slightly alternate ending to the Nedry vs Dilophosaurus sequence in Jurassic Park, where instead of Nedry making it inside of the Jeep and being surprised by another Dilophosaurus, he is dragged away as he tries to enter it. Check out some of the boards below:

     

     

You can view the rest of the sequence here, along with the header sheet and script page which details the alternate ending for Nedry.

Huge thanks to Derrick for sharing these – with a wealth of reveals among the community recently, it’s getting more and more exciting to think what other unknown treasures are waiting for fans to discover. Phil Tippett sold a huge number of his personal items in the auction showcasing his time working on the movie, along with many others.

We recently revealed the complete story arc for the unreleased Jurassic Park cartoon television series which you can check out here! The story follows on immediately from the ending of the first movie – literally in the helicopter as the survivors leave the island – and details Hammond’s plans to ensure the safety of the island and the dinosaurs on it, protecting them from poachers and a certain malicious company.

     

If you enjoyed seeing the above storyboards then be sure to have a glance at Derrick’s other albums which include alternate storyboard shots from the Main Road sequence and a unique look at an alternate ending to the movie, which never made it to the final shooting script. Also, check out his unboxing video of his auction win below:

Did World Famous DJ Dimitri Vegas Just Land a Role in Jurassic World 2?

The Jurassic Park franchise has never been known for cameos and bit parts for celebrities, but that may be changing with the latest casting rumour. We Got This Covered is reporting that world famous DJ Dimitri Vegas has landed a role in the sequel.

Yesterday, the DJ tweeted a photo of himself with producer Frank Marshall with the caption: “Meeting with one of my heroes today @LeDoctor #JurassicWorld”

Frank Marshall later retweeted the photo with his own caption: “DJ Master Frank meets with one of his heroes. Who knows where this will lead?”

While the tweets don’t mention casting, the website’s source revealed that Vegas and Marshall did indeed meet to discuss a role in the sequel. With this information in mind, it’s interesting to note #JurassicWorld and “Who knows where this will lead?” in their tweets.

The photo itself also appears to be taken in the Kennedy/Marshall offices; the photographs behind the pair can be found on the Kennedy/Marshall website.

According to the article, Dimitri Vegas (real name Dimitri Thivaios), has recently signed with CAA and is hoping to break into the industry as an actor. Their source claims that he wouldn’t have a large role in the sequel, and without any acting experience under his belt that’s probably a safe option. However, judging by the positive messages both he and Frank Marshall tweeted, it’s likely the meeting went well.

Could Dimitri Vegas be joining Daniella Pineda, Justice Smith, Toby Jones, and Rafe Spall as newcomers to the Jurassic franchise? While we have no official confirmation, with everything considered above it certainly seems likely.

Oh, and Dimitri also picked up Chronicle Collectibles The Lost World: Jurassic Park T-Rex bust, and there’s a Jurassic Park sequence in one of his music videos (skip to 00:55):

“Getting Ready For The Journey” J.A. Bayona Shares New Jurassic World 2 Photo!

It’s always fun waking up to news, and with the Jurassic World sequel’s production offices now based in London, there’s a stronger chance that I’ll actually catch the news as it’s shared.

News on the sequel has been quiet with only some casting information dripping out, but now director J.A. Bayona has shared his first photo for the sequel – which shows some scratched/dirty Jurassic World worker hardhats!

The image is captioned: “Getting ready for the journey.” and the image itself indicates that the production team are finalizing the props for the film, which begins shooting next month.

The hardhats are not from Jurassic Park but we know from reference images that they are the same as the ones that the Paddock Supervisors wear, mostly seen around the Indominus Rex paddock.

    

The difference in the photo Bayona shared is that they have the full colour logo instead of the stencil logo. The full colour logo is seen on the white hardhat in Jurassic World that Zach and Gray find in the jungle. It is also found on the Masrani Global website.

    

Our friends at Reel News Hawaii have also weighed in, suggesting that the hats could also be the orange Jurassic World construction hats that were used while the park was built!

    

What are your thoughts? How do you think these hats tie into the story? Let us know in the comments section below, and be sure to give our story speculation article a read!

Bryce Dallas Howard Talks About Preparing For Jurassic World 2 With Chris Pratt

With cameras set to start rolling this March and with casting well underway, the sequel to Jurassic World is squaring up to be a monster hit, with director J.A. Bayona taking the helm and bringing on his cinematographer to help bring the movie to life.

As many expected, the period leading up to filming would be a quiet one, with only tidbits of information being released. Those working on the movie have their lips sealed shut, but returning actress Bryce Dallas Howard has expressed her excitement for the filming and for bringing her character, Claire Dearing, back in the sequel.

In an new interview with JoBlo, Bryce shared a little about her character’s transformation:

That’s part of the story, that’s part of the journey. She definitely went through a lot and is permanently changed because of that. But she is also who she is. Chris [Pratt] and I are already having a lot of fun with that. We’re in that stage right now of figuring out the backstory and talking through all those beats, like everything that happened in between. That’s always such a fun time. You’re like, ‘No, she did that?! No way, he couldn’t have!’ It’s really, really fun, and then you step into the present moment and it becomes alive.

While this – for the most part – is nothing new, it’s refreshing to learn that both actors are taking the time to truly figure out their character’s backstory, and share with one another just what Claire and Owen have been up to, post Jurassic World.

Jurassic Park in Concert at the Royal Albert Hall – A Documentary

At the start of November, many fans were lucky enough to visit the Royal Albert Hall in London to watch Jurassic Park in front of a live symphony orchestra. It was an incredible event; hearing a live orchestra perform such a perfect score by John Williams was magical, and a brilliant way to experience the movie.
