Crash McCreey’s 1:1 Baby Raptors Diorama Available For Pre-Order

Chronicle Collectibles today announced that their 1:1 scale Crash McCreey Jurassic Park Baby Raptors Diorama is now available for pre-order at a special sale price of $550.00 for the first 30 days when you purchase direct. The diorama is 18″ long, 9″ tall and 12″ deep. Each Baby Raptor is roughly 12″ long. There currently is no official ship date, but the diorama is scheduled to start shipping in the 1st quarter of 2018. 3, 6 and 10 month payment plans are offered!

Mark “Crash” McCreery always knew that he wanted to “do dinosaurs”. After graduating from the Art Center College of Design in 1988, Crash went on to work with some of the biggest names in the industry, including Stephen Hopkins for Predator 2, Tim Burton for Edward Scissorhands and James Cameron for Terminator 2. Just after attaining an Academy Award nomination for his make-up design for Batman Returns, Crash got the opportunity to work with Steven Spielberg on Jurassic Park.Crash was given the challenge to create a whole new vision of dinosaurs based on new science and ideas of what dinosaurs really were. Jurassic Park was kept secret in the early stages of pre-production, so Crash worked in solitude for an entire year while he sketched and drew dinosaur renders. Once the actual production started for the film, Crash and Stan Winston brought these dinosaurs to life through puppetry and radio- and cable-controlled performances. Crash even donned the full size Raptor suit that he designed as an on-set puppeteer.

Crash rendered hundreds of drawings for Jurassic Park. One that was never fully realized in the film is the drawing of the baby raptors playing together shortly after hatching from their incubated eggs. Since the Velociraptors were so terrifying in the film, maybe portraying them as cute, almost domesticated creatures wouldn’t fit. Thankfully, Crash and Universal have allowed Chronicle Collectibles to create a three dimensional product of this adorable artwork.

Trevorrow Believes Sequel Will Be Scarier Than Previous Installment

We have heard in the past year from new director J.A. Bayona that the Jurassic World sequel will have a scarier tone than the previous installment and writer/producer Colin Trevorrow expanded on that notion in an exclusive chat with CinemaBlend.

Asked why he believes Bayona’s vision will make the Jurassic World sequel scarier, Trevorrow had the following to say.

“J.A Bayona is very good at [creating scares]. There are things that he’ll just do with a shadow, or a rustling curtain on a wall. He’s so tapped into that kind of fear, especially the fear through the eyes of child. Which, you know, he and I are just simpatico. We may be the mirrors of each other. It is by far the most satisfying collaboration of my life.”

“First of all I think the mainstream loves being scared, and I think the scares in the first movie were made to make children think like they were seeing something horrifying, that their parents shouldn’t be allowing them to see. We have that a little bit here. But there’s also that same big, fun adventure, sweeping, romantic kind of action in part of the movie. That people seemingly responded really well to. We’re not throwing it all way, but we’re definitely going to some new places.”

So what do you think about Trevorrows’s comments that he believes the Jurassic World sequel will be scarier than the previous installment? Let us know in the comments below and on our forums.

Support Jurassic Plush Spinosaurus and Triceratops Kickstarter

In 2015 a company based in the UK called Jungle Plush started a Kickstater for a Tyrannosaurus Rex and Apatosaurus plush. It was a success and both cuddly animals were produced and have been on sale to purchase since. However, according to the Jungle Plush website only the Tyrannosaurus Rex is still available as the Apatosaurus is currently sold out. But for fans of these plush dinosaurs there is good news as the company just launched a new Kickstarter this Jurassic June for a Spinosaurus and Triceratops plush.

The Kickstarter goal to launch the new line of dinosaur plush animals is $4,511. There are currently 29 days left to donate to make this a reality. While this company is not associated with Universal Studios or the Jurassic films, these plush dinosaurs are a great collectible for all Jurassic fans.

So what do you think about this new Kickstater for a Spinosaurus and Triceratops plush? Will you help support it? Let us know in the comments below and on our forums.

Ian Malcolm will be a ‘saucy, sassy man’ in Jurassic World Sequel

In a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, actor Jeff Goldblum, who will be reprising his role of Dr. Ian Malcolm in the upcoming Jurassic World sequel, talked a little bit about what we should expect when his character returns.

You’ve also got an upcoming role in Jurassic World 2. What are you looking forward to about your return to that franchise?

Off I go in a few weeks to London, where they’ve been hard at work, and I’ll try to contribute something to the plate of dino-entertainment. I like my character. I think my character is a saucy, sassy man of some integrity and deep thinking. And of course, that whole world continues to be popular, slam-bang, top entertainment. I talked to the director, J.A. Bayona, over the phone. I enjoyed his movie The Impossible with Naomi Watts, and he’s something else. I didn’t realize he was a good friend of a friend of mine, a director I worked with a while ago in Spain named Fernando Trueba, who’s just fantastic. Knowing that the two of them are brethren and brotherly in their friendship makes me feel very good, too. Even though some might say it’s popcorn-y entertainment (top-notch, of course), in our conversation he was very focused on the serious issues of greed as it oftentimes comes up in those movies, and the marvels of science and reason and the very fascinating point at which our species finds itself both in real life and in this imaginary world too. I’m very interested in that myself, so I’m looking forward to this. I’ve got a few things to do. I’m nothing if not conscientious, so I’m enjoying working on it every day.

So what do you think about Goldblum’s comments about Ian Malcolm and working with director J.A. Bayona? Let us know in the comments below and on our forums.

Chris Pratt: Jurassic World Sequel To Be “Scarier”

In an interview with ScreenRant, Chris Pratt, who is returning as Owen Grady in the Jurassic World sequel said he believes the new film will be a “scarier version” than the previous installment.

“Aw man, J.A. Bayona? Do you know that filmmaker? He’s a remarkable filmmaker. If you haven’t seen The Impossible or A Monster Calls, I mean he’s really visually masterful. Deep emotions and suspense. I think it’s going to be a scarier version. A little bit darker and will continue to expand and carry the story forward in a way that is really unexpected and you wouldn’t have imagined.”

As ScreenRant also points out in their article, this is not the first time statements like this have been made about the upcoming sequel. Director JA Bayona said late last year that the sequel would be “darker and scarier then the previous film.”

So what do you think about Pratt’s comments about the Jurassic World sequel possibly being “scarier” then previous Jurassic World film? Let us know in the comments below and on our forums.

Hawaii casting call set for this Saturday for Jurassic World Sequel

Always dreamed of maybe being eaten by a dinosaur? Well this weekend could be your opportunity as there is an open casting call taking place on Oahu, Hawaii this upcoming Saturday March 25th that is looking for extras to appear in the upcoming Jurassic World sequel according to a news report from Khon2.

While the news report doesn’t specifically mention the Jurassic World sequel, which is operating under the working title of Ancient Futures, it does say it is a Universal film that is part of a big franchise that filmed there back in 2014. Obviously Jurassic World is the only film that fits that specific criteria.


The news report mentions there is a casting call for another movie that is also taking place at the same time. Casting director Katie Doyle had this to say about the process, but it was unclear which film she was referencing or if it was a general comment about both films:

“This one were looking for some Latino and Latino looking Spanish speakers, lots of active duty military, military spouses, farmers, bikini girls, native Hawaiian specific Islanders”

So anyone going to be one of the lucky ones to get that chance to attend the open casting call? Let us know in the comments below and on our forums.

Thank you to our friend Reel News Hawaii for bringing this news story to our attention.

JA Bayona teases animatronics with photo of puppeteer team

Jurassic World sequel director JA Bayona took to Twitter this afternoon to tease the puppeteer team hard at work bringing the animatronic dinosaurs to life for the new film. The team, shown in the photo below, appears to be working underneath a stage or platform where shooting is taking place.

It was reported back in early February that the Jurassic World sequel was veering away from Legacy Effects practical dinosaurs and instead going with the ‘Creature Shop’ of Oscar Award winning Neal Scanlan. Scanlan might be most well known for his recent work on both of the most recent Star Wars films, ‘The Force Awakens’ and ‘Rogue One’. While Jurassic Outpost cannot 100% confirm, it appears Mr. Scanlan is in the photo second from the left.

Jurassic World star Bryce Dallas Howard, who is reprising her role as Claire Dearing in the upcoming sequel also teased today a fall protection vest that was being used during today’s shooting.

Our good friends at the Bryce Dallas Howard Network was the first to speculate that perhaps the teased animatronic dinosaur and the fall protection vest could mean an exciting dinosaur action scene involving Claire.

So what kind of dinosaur do you think the puppeteer team is controlling? Also do you agree with the speculation that this could mean there is an action scene involving Claire and this animatronic dinosaur? Let us know in the comments below and on our forums.

Rafe Spall navigating busy schedule including the Jurassic World Sequel

English actor Rafe Spall has been connected to the Jurassic World Sequel since last November, but very little is known about what type of role he will play in the new film. While we still don’t know really anything about his character, he took some time to talk to BT about his busy schedule filming the sequel and starring in the National Theatre’s production of Hedda Gabler which ends its run next week.

Spall, who works on the Jurassic World sequel during the day and performs at his show in the evenings is excited to be working with director JA Bayona and returning Jurassic actors Bryce Dallas Howard and Chris Pratt.

“It’s being directed by JA Bayona, who is a genuine auteur, so to have someone like that putting his own mark on it is extremely exciting, it’s a bit like when (Alfonso) Cuaron did a Harry Potter, a brilliant film-maker with their own visions coming on to a franchise.”

“It’s a great part and Bryce Dallas Howard and Chris Pratt are extremely talented and charming people so I’m really enjoying it.”

He also goes on to say how one of the best parts of working on a Jurassic film is being able to share the films with his children.

“That is part of the power of Jurassic Park, kids love dinosaurs and they have since time immemorial so I’m really excited to be in something they will be so pumped about.”

So what kind of character do you think Rafe Spall will be playing in the Jurassic World sequel? Let us know in the comments below and on our forums.
