The slipper company, Fuzzy Babba, has released Jurassic World slippers that would be perfect to keep your feet cozy while marathoning the Jurassic movies! Fuzzy Babba used the silhouette of JW dinos to create a grey/black camouflage-like pattern. Now you can sport T.rex, Indominus Rex, Triceratops, and Velociraptors on your feet!
I tried out a M/L size (men’s shoe size 7.5 – 9.5), and found that they fit perfectly for a women’s size 9.5. If you like a little more room in your slippers, I would suggest getting the L/XL. The slippers are super soft, and I loved the dino pattern!
What do you think of the slippers? Do you plan on ordering yourself (or friend) a pair? Let us know in the comments below!
With only three days left until the domestic release of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom the release tour continues, with the cast and crew continuing to talk all things Jurassic with members of the press.
One of the more favored characters among audiences is Dr. Zia Rodriguez, a paleo-veterinarian portrayed by Daniella Pineda, and the actress herself revealed an important aspect of her character that didn’t actually make it into the final cut of the movie.
Daniella tells a Yahoo Entertainment-moderated chat:
Before the action kicks in, Owen and Zia are still in the “getting to know you” phase, so the paleo-veterinarian takes a moment to size up the ex-raptor trainer. “I look at Chris and I’m like: ‘Yeah, square jaw, good bone structure, tall, muscles,’” Pineda remembers.
“‘I don’t date men, but if I did, it would be you. It would gross me out, but I’d do it.’ I love that I’m looking at Chris Pratt, the hottest guy in the world, and I’m like, ‘It would gross me out, but I guess I would do it!’ It was also cool, because it was a little insight into my character. But they cut it.”
Check out the clip below:
Another fascinating fact that Daniella revealed was that the original cut of the movie had a run time of 2 hours and 40 minutes, a whopping 30 minutes longer than the current theatrical cut.
The duo [J.A. Bayona and Colin Trevorrow] also made the call to cut the scene, a decision that was largely due to run time. “Originally the cut was two hours and 40 minutes, and they were like, ‘This is too long,’” the actress tells us, adding that the scene ultimately wasn’t “relevant to the story, but it was a little glimmer into who she is.”
It’s not uncommon to hear that scenes were cut for the theatrical release of a movie, in fact it’s a major part of the post-production process and allows the editor and director to find the ideal pacing of the movie.
However, one of my gripes when I first saw the movie was the pacing and how quickly it moved on from scene to scene. There didn’t appear to be any breathing room between the action, so I feel like those extra 30 minutes could have benefited the movie’s pacing.
While it’s unclear if the Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom Blu-Ray release will feature any deleted scenes, we can hope that some of this extended footage will someday see the light of day, whether in a director’s cut or just as a featurette on the Blu-Ray.
Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom has dominated the international box office, earning an estimated $151.1 during the opening weekend alone. Needless to say the release later this week domestically in the US is going to go out with an eruption, with projections expecting a $130-$150 million opening.

No strangers to the Jurassic Franchise, Mondo have announced today the they will be offering Michael Giacchino’s ‘Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom’ soundtrack as a 2 disc limited vinyl pressing. In record time too given the Official Release only dropped only days ago!
Mondo’s web exclusive version of this 2XLP comes pressed on either a stunning looking 180 Gram Indo-Raptor colored vinyl (Translucent Green with Orange Stripe and Yellow Splatter), or for the more reserved collector on traditional Black vinyl. Featuring original new artwork by JC Richard, this set will fit right in with Mondo’s previous Jurassic Park and World offerings.
Here’s what Mondo had to say about the score:
“JURASSIC PARK: FALLEN KINGDOM is some of the most fun we’ve had in the theaters this year. And Giacchino’s score, which returns more to his penned JURASSIC WORLD score than the John Williams’ cues that bridged the gap in the last film, is evocative of classic Universal horror and haunted house movie scores, breaking from the pack of previous JURASSIC scores. Much like the film itself, Giacchino creates a fun, fresh take on the music of the “Man creates Dinosaurs… Dinosaurs eat Man” series.”
Hey Mondo? Can we get ‘The Lost World’ and ‘Jurassic Park III’ too please? The set goes up for sale this Wednesday at Noon (CST) over at MondoTees.com
Chronicle Collectibles has announced that their Jurassic Park 1:5 Female Triceratops Bust is now available for pre-order and will begin shipping in the second quarter of 2019. The bust is 19″ from base to nose on a 16″ diameter base and will cost $750.00. 3, 6 and 10 month payment plans are available.
Thanks to the massive success of our previous 1:5 scale T-Rex busts, we are continuing the line with the world’s first officially licensed 1:5 scale Triceratops Bust from the original Jurassic Park. As you will recall, the Triceratops played a key role in the film by giving Dr. Grant and Ellie their first up close encounter with a fully grown dinosaur. At Chronicle Collectibles, we are thrilled to bring home this magic moment of cinema for Jurassic Park fans with this striking 1:5 scale Triceratops Bust
This gorgeous dinosaur bust was created from a scaled down 3D scan of the Sick Triceratops as seen in the first film. Since the existing life-size scan of the Sick Triceratops only featured one side of the face, our skilled artists mirrored the head for the opposite side and then carefully detailed it to ensure it was wholly accurate and not just a mirror image. The result is a stunning portrait that complements our previous busts and can either be featured with them or as a standalone piece.
This amazing bust is designed to be wall mounted and is roughly the same size as our T-Rex busts; 16″ in diameter for the base and 19″ from base to nose (not including the horns). We also offer an elegant tabletop stand that fits this bust if you prefer not to mount it to your wall (sold separately). This limited edition 1:5 scale Triceratops Bust comes individually numbered and will be sought by collectors long after it is sold out.
Visit Chronicle Collectibles official website for more information about the Jurassic Park 1:5 Triceratops. So what do you think about about this bust, and do you plan to pre-order? Let us know in the comments below and on our forums.

On June 22nd, the Park is gone – but Isla Nublar will live on in a epic new VR based videogame hitting arcades soon!
The new interactive cinematic adventure will hit over 100 ‘Dave and Busters’ locations on June 14th, and will put players into a living and breathing Jurassic World. Taking place before the latest sequel, players will be tasked with capturing the various dinosaurs freely roaming the island prior to its volcanic based extinction. The game is sure to provide all thrills and awe inspiring moments synonymous with Jurassic Park, and we cannot wait to go hands on!
Check out the full press release below:
Universal and The Virtual Reality Company (VRC) today announced Jurassic World VR Expedition, an interactive cinematic virtual reality (VR) game that transports players to the visually stunning jungles of Isla Nublar, where fans will engage in an epic rescue adventure inspired by the Jurassic World film series. Jurassic World VR Expedition makes its debut on June 14 at more than 100 Dave & Buster’s entertainment centers, making it the biggest location-based VR launch to date. The VR game launches ahead of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, which arrives in theaters on June 22, 2018.
The VRC development team includes several Academy Award®-winning and -nominated animators, visual effects artists, and technicians. Written and directed by James Lima, a multi-Emmy Award-nominated visual effects artist, and executive produced by VRC co-founders Robert Stromberg, a two-time Academy Award winner®, and entertainment executive Guy Primus, Jurassic World VR Expedition boasts an all-new approach to VR.
Up to four people at a time can put on an HTC VIVE™ headset and enter the Dave & Buster’s state-of-the-art VR motion simulator, where they will be transported into what remains of Jurassic World for a five-minute suspenseful, awe-inspiring expedition. There, they will rescue dinosaurs that were freely roaming Isla Nublar at the end of the last chapter of Jurassic World.
“Jurassic World VR Expedition is the ultimate wish fulfilled,” said Jurassic World VR Expedition Director James Lima. “We wanted to take people to Isla Nublar and visit Jurassic World, and here is where the power of VR presents its potential as a medium that is an extension of the film.”
“What we have done for this project is groundbreaking,” added The Virtual Reality Company Co-Founder and Chief Creative Officer Robert Stromberg. “It represents a remarkable departure from the traditional approach to combining VFX and gameplay in VR. To achieve the level of cinematic visual integrity we would like to see in VR, we integrated a variety of filmmaking techniques to help complement established entertainment software approaches.”
Jurassic World VR Expedition is the latest in a strategic expansion by Universal into gaming. Last year, Universal announced a significant build-up of its games team, as well as a more active approach and investment into game development. Jurassic World VR Expedition is the first VR production being released that is part of a bold portfolio of games rolling out in 2018 and beyond.
“For many, this will be their wondrous introduction to VR, and Jurassic World VR Expedition will transport fans in a more immersive way than they could imagine. Players will experience the dinosaurs—both the majestic and terrifying—first person,” said Chris Heatherly, Executive Vice President of Games and Digital Platforms, Universal Brand Development. “We are thrilled with the breathtaking visuals and cinematic experience that VRC has delivered, as well as by Dave & Buster’s bold step to make this experience available to such a broad audience.”
“The exclusive launch of Jurassic World VR Expedition at all Dave & Buster’s locations represents an incredible milestone for us as we aim to be at the forefront of location-based entertainment VR,” said Kevin Bachus, Senior Vice President, Entertainment & Games Strategy, Dave & Buster’s. “Our innovative, top-of-the-line simulators will provide fans with next-level immersion, putting them into Jurassic World for a breathtaking journey alongside the biggest creatures this world has ever known.”
Eager to try the latest Jurassic game installment? It makes its debut at the Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom Fan Fest June 13th, at the Walt Disney Concert Hall. Learn more about the Fan Fest venue here! To try Jurassic World VR Expedition eslewhere, players can find a Dave & Buster’s location in their area or through Vive’s Demo Locator. The game will be rolling out soon to additional location-based VR venues worldwide.
According to Variety, ‘in the coming months, VRC plans to work on refining “Jurassic World VR Expedition” with additional iterations, and also bring it to other locations both in the U.S. and internationally. The ultimate plan is to turn “Jurassic World VR Expedition” into a ride with longevity, said Robert Stromberg. “These types of experiences can last for years.”
This game is not to be mistaken for the cinematic Jurassic World: Blue, a free VR based experience that takes you to Isla Nublar and allows you to view key moments of Blue’s life prior Mount Sibos volcanic eruption. Both episodes of Jurassic World: Blue are available on the Oculus store now and are not to be missed!

Hold on to your butts, and grab a pair of headphones as you can now listen to the first previews of the Fallen Kingdom soundtrack!
The latest Jurassic Park sequel has already roared its way into overseas theaters, and one of the main things fans can’t stop talking about is the new soundtrack from Oscar-winner Michael Giacchino. Reprising his role of composer from Jurassic World, Giacchino has brought a darker style to the latest installment, embracing its extinction level and Gothic undertones. I’ve seen the film myself, and I cannot stop thinking about the music, and how badly I wish I had access to it already.
Thankfully, Entertainment Weekly has an exclusive first look at a track from the Fallen Kingdom Soundtrack! The new theme accompanies the opening of the film, and plays during some tense storm action at night prior to the title reveal.

Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, Giacchino had this to say:
“John Williams certainly set the tone, so I wanted to stay in that realm, but now here we are, five Jurassic Parks in, and I didn’t want to do the same thing I did on the last film. This film has a very different tone, so I basically went to the director, Juan Antonio Bayona, who I’ve known for many years, and said, ‘What if Bernard Hermann and Stravinsky had a baby who wrote the score for this film?’”
