This year is the 25th Anniversary of when Jurassic Park hit theaters and NBC’s Saturday Night Live got into the fun with a comedy sketch of fake audition screen tests for the film. Former SNL cast member Bill Hader returned to the show as the host of the March 17th episode.
Hader, along with current cast members of the show impersonated multiple celebrities including Hugh Grant, Alan Alda, Ellen DeGeneres, Roseanne, Adam Sandler, Al Pacino and Jodi Foster among others. Check out the full sketch below.
What did you think of the sketch? Did you find it funny or did it miss the mark? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below and on our forums.
Last December at CCXP in Brazil, Iron Studios revealed their first official Jurassic Park collectible item – a huge diorama statue based on the T. rex breakout scene. The statue included a section of the main road including the security fences, both Ford Explorer tour vehicles, the infamous Lady Rex, Alan Grant and Ian Malcolm, and even Tim and Lex!
The separate pieces in this diorama statue were initially only going to be distributed in Iron Studios’ home country of Brazil, however thanks to a deal with Texas-based company Chronicle Collectibles, the statue will now see distribution worldwide!
The 1/10 scale T. rex is a limited edition statue, hand-painted and crafted in polystone. Based on the main road sequence from the 1993 film, where the park’s main attraction breaks through the fences and attacks the tour group, this huge piece will distribute at the end of this year and is now available to pre-order through Chronicle’s website.
While this is a limited edition piece, the exact number count has not yet been decided, but if you are wanting to purchase this item then I wouldn’t wait around!
She measures 44cm in height and reaches 85cm end-to-end! As always with Chronicle, multiple payment plans are available to help you break down the cost, with the full price sitting at $649. With the weight estimated to be around 20lbs, this truly is a whopping collectible – made even bigger with the additional pieces!
Not only can you now purchase the T. rex from this diorama, now the 1/10 scale human figures are both available for pre-order too! Dr. Grant and Dr. Malcolm are available for $89 each, a modest price considering the colouring and detail!
Also shipping towards the end of the year, these collectible statues will come on a unique based featuring the Jurassic Park logo and weigh roughly 8lbs each.
These statues will look fantastic on their own, but if you’re keen for the whole diorama piece then more items are set to be announced this year with pricing and sizing info. For now, Chronicle have released this info:
This initial offering from Iron Studios represents just a small piece of a much larger complete diorama set that will also eventually be distributed by Chronicle Collectibles. Iron Studios, in coordination with Chronicle Collectibles, plans to release new pieces of the diorama over time, culminating in a complete 1/10 scale “T-Rex Attack” diorama once all pieces are assembled.
Iron Studios spared no expense when announcing this diorama piece at CCXP, with a full size T. rex statue towering over their display and a screen accurate tour vehicle available for photos ops. Their display was surrounded with foliage which makes the diorama piece really stand out.
Read more on CCXP by checking out our write-up from last December, and head to Chronicle’s official website to pre-order these items!

Over the past few days, Jurassic World composer Michael Giacchino has hard at work recording the Fallen Kingdom score.
While the recording session has been occurring behind closed doors at the world famous Abbey Road Studios, director JA Bayona and Michael Giacchino himself have been sharing previews online. Following up on the first preview from Wednesday, Giacchino posted an updated reprisal of ‘Ye Old Visitor Center‘ yesterday which again returns to the classic Jurassic Park themes with an uneasy and somber tone.
Moments ago, JA Bayona shared another sample of work, this time a new track which apparently ends the film. Listen to both below!
If JA Bayona’s tweet is to be taken literally, and that music closes out the film before the credits roll, then it’s safe to expect quite the dramatic closing scene, setting up a higher stakes Jurassic World 3.
While it’s too soon to speculate about the third film in the latest Jurassic trilogy, this certainly has us curious. Of course, this tease also has us eager to hear more of the soundtrack from Fallen Kingdom – Giacchino has had no small task set out in front of him: creating music for Nublars demise. Whatever new themes and classic reprisals close out the home and setting of Jurassic Park it is sure to be bittersweet.
What do you think of the latest teases, and what do you want to hear from the Fallen Kingdom soundtrack? Sound off in the comments below, and stay tuned for the latest news!

In the announcement video above, the actor endorses the upcoming game by Frontier:
“I’m going to be with you the whole game as Dr. Ian Malcolm. I highly recommend it – it gets 10 Goldblums out of a possible 10 Goldblums. That’s my highest rating.”
While you will not be able to play as Ian Malcolm, the character will return in the game in an advisory role to guide you through the decision making process, much like the voices that guided you through the gameplay in Jurassic Park: Operation Genesis.
