Jeff Goldblum chats Fallen Kingdom on the Adam Carolla Show!

Forever on someone’s couch chatting away about his latest endeavours in his velvet tones, Jeff Goldblum took some time out of his manic schedule last week to appear on the Adam Carolla Show.

Coy as always, he didn’t drop anything too spoiler-y, but he did mention he had wrapped after shooting in London for a week giving us another clue to the size of Malcolm’s contribution to Fallen Kingdom. He also notes the title announcement (with a humorous stumble in the process), his amazement at the sets built at Pinewood, as well as his respect for director J.A. Bayona. The exciting use of Malcolm’s quote from Jurassic Park; “Life Finds a Way” also gets a mention in passing.

If you’re like us, then you could happily listen to Jeff Goldblum talking all day, even if it’s not a Jurassic conversation. Listen to the whole episode at the link below.

New Hawaii set photos and the possible return of a fan favorite

New photos have emerged from the set of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom at Kualoa Ranch and a photo of a set piece that will drive fans out of their mind has also surfaced. So please beware of possible spoilers within this article. If you wish to remain completely unspoiled for the upcoming sequel do not continue below.

Still here? Ok, lets continue on to the set photos that contain possible spoilers. The 9 photos you see below were taken at the Kualoa Ranch and you can make out some skeletons of what appears to be a Triceratops and an Apatosaurus. Also the one photo shows the wreckage of a Gyrosphere. Heavy fog continues to be pumped into the filming area indicating some big natural event could be occurring on the island.

These images come courtesy of Ken brewer, the @SmokingGoose on Twitter:



More behind the scenes set photos from the ranch are also available on Dread Central, so make sure to check those out also.

Now for the big possible spoiler.

The original Jurassic Park ford explorer had been spotted in Los Angeles (being prepped to ship to Hawaii) over a month ago, and appears to be set to return to the big screen in the sequel! As you will notice in the photo below from Slash Film the number on the explorer is “04”. Jurassic fans will remember this as the explorer that was destroyed by the T-Rex in the original film.

If this explorer is returning in the sequel, could it be in a flash back segment? Perhaps there were two “04” vehicles on the island or maybe production is going to crush the car before filming to recreate the wreckage. As it stands in the image, the vehicle is not 100% accurate as it’s missing the glass domed roof. However, this is likely before the art department finished with it, and judging by the image below, it was altered and weathered quite a bit! Lots of questions but it is exciting that is appears this classic vehicle will be returning just like the jeep returned in Jurassic World.

Moving on, Twitter user hawaii_isla808 also posted some photos on Twitter of a Stegosaurus prop that was featured on KITV News.

Finally, a few more peaks of the dinosaur stand-ins on site at Heeia Kea harbour:

Universal Clarifies: There Will NOT Be A Fallen Kingdom Trailer at Comic Con

Recently there have been rumours that a teaser trailer for Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom will be hitting Hall H at the San Diego Comic Con this July. While timing could allow for the studio to reveal a short (and sweet) teaser trailer to an excited audience, after reaching out to Universal Pictures for comment it would appear that this is nothing more than a rumour.

While it is always fun to speculate and with actor Daniella Pineda having recently tweeted that she believes there will be a teaser trailer “soon”, it’s important to remember to always throw in a pinch of salt with the rumours you hear. The studio told us:

“As a studio we aren’t planning any presence for the film at SDCC.”

So there you have it. Unfortunately there will not be a Jurassic presence this year at Comic Con, and it may be some time before we see any footage from the upcoming sequel.

There is just under a year to go until the release and while modern blockbusters all have a copious amount of teaser trailers for teaser trailers, teaser trailers for trailers, and trailers upon trailers, it’s refreshing that the studio are taking a relaxed stance so far with the sequel.

While the marketing plans have not been revealed and we have a while to go until we can expect a trailer, I do hope they retain a number of the key plot points this time around. It’s all about that cinema experience.

Fallen Kingdom hits cinemas in the UK on 8th June and the USA on 22nd June 2018.

New Photos Show Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom Filming at Oahu Harbour

For the past week or so, the Jurassic World 2 production has been setting up and filming on the island of Oahu, Hawaii. With many locations on the island being utilized, including the Kualoa Ranch, one of the main locations this week has been the He’eia Kea Harbor, a small boat harbor on the East side of the island.

Hawaii News Now reports that filming began on Wednesday 21st June at the harbor and that dinosaurs, smoke machines and large black tarps are currently occupy over half of the harbor. The report also states that boat owners were paid handsomely to move their boats and five commercial businesses were paid to temporarily halt their operations during filming.

We did report on the harbor filming a few days ago, but now we have more photos and a longer video from Hawaii News Now! As always we’ll provide a friendly spoiler warning – do not scroll down if you want to avoid any spoilers for the movie.

The context of what is being filmed at the harbour is unclear but from the photos we can see that smoke has played a large part, along with the military vehicles that we have seen at various other locations too.



While filming continues at the harbour, a portion of the Kamehameha highway will also remain closed until next week. What do you think they may be filming here? The area of He’eia Kea is not alien to filming – 50 First Dates filmed at the Harbor, and the nose piece of Flight 815 from Lost was stored and filmed on the other side of the highway.

A further spoiler warning for the following – our friends over at Reel News Hawaii recently shared a photo from the Kualoa Ranch which shows a familiar dinosaur…

And the Bryce Dallas Howard Network revealed some photos that show Claire Dearing’s costume in the upcoming sequel.

Fallen Kingdom will continue to film on the island of Oahu for the next few weeks, with Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Daniella Pineda, Justice Smith and Ted Levine known to be on island currently.

In related news – rumours have been floating around that a Fallen Kingdom teaser trailer will show in Hall H at San Diego Comic Con this July. Recently, Universal Pictures informed us that there are no current plans for a teaser trailer, and while Comic Con is always a perfect event to market a movie, this franchise has never truly explored this. In 2011 Steven Spielberg announced to an excited audience that they have a story for Jurassic Park 4 and will hopefully see the light of day in 2 or 3 years. And in 2014 during the run-up to Jurassic World, fans were able to text Universal for a location to pick up an exclusive SDCC poster.

However, having reached out to Universal directly they informed us that: “as a studio we aren’t planning any presence for the film at SDCC”. It’s not time to get excited, just yet.

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.

Visit Chronicle Collectibles official website for more information and photos of this rare collectible diorama. So what do you think about about this new diorama of Crash McCreey’s Baby Raptors, and do you plan to spare no expense and pre-order? Let us know in the comments below and on our forums.

Jurassic World 2 is Officially Titled: FALLEN KINGDOM

The official title for the Jurassic World sequel has finally been announced – say hello to JURASSIC WORLD: FALLEN KINGDOM!

The reveal came via the official Jurassic World socials feeds with the quote “In one year, life finds a way.”

With Jeff Goldblum having recently been announced as joining the sequel, the 2018 follow-up to 2015’s Jurassic World is shaping up to be an action-packed sequel, feeling more in line with the first two movies and opting for similar art style to The Lost World. See the full poster below, including the new tagline:

While the poster reveals very little and is utilising the current Jurassic World colours, the logo is now seen to be cracked and corroded (much like The Lost World) and the poster shows some glowing amber ashes flying past – something we saw very recently on some of the key art used at the Las Vegas Expo.

With only one year to go until the US release date, we will begin to hear more on the sequel in the coming months. While I don’t expect we’ll see a teaser trailer soon, a plot synopsis would be very welcomed.

So what are your thoughts on Fallen Kingdom? Do let us know in the comments section below!

Hawaiian media shares footage of dinosaurs on Jurassic World 2 set; “big news” coming soon!

Today’s news is twofold, as the Jurassic World Sequel continues filming in Hawaii. First up, comes the numerous images from the Jurassic World 2 sets at the He’eia Kea Pier, some including practical dinosaurs! As we do with any image not released by the production, I want to give a fair ‘potential spoilers’ warning – though it’s worth noting the media was permitted by the production to take and share these images.

First up we have a Triceratops inside of a transport cage, via Mahealani Richardson on Instagram:

I just saw a dinosaur in a cage! It's a triceratops. #jurassicworld2

A post shared by Mahealani Richardson (@maheatv) on

Dinosaurs in transport cages? Interesting! Perhaps this has something to do with the “save the dinosaurs” plot lines that were previously hinted at?

We had first seen this Triceratops via another user on Instagram a few days prior, which we’ve embeded below. As you can see from the image, this is not an animatronic dinosaur, but rather a low detail foam model, used as a stand in. The dinosaur will eventually be replaced with CGI in post production, and likely serves as something for the actors to naturally work with, and lighting reference.

Next up, we have a few images of a Stegosaurus stand-in (again, we do not believe it to be a animatronic, but rather a prop that will be replaced with a CGI recreation). This image comes via Mackenzie Stasko of KITV, and was first brought to our attention by Reel News Hawaii:

Reel News Hawaii also shared this image that included both the Triceratops and Stegosaurus together in the same shot:

While the Triceratops seems smaller than its Jurassic Park counterpart, that Stegosaurs looks HUGE! You can catch a preview of tonight’s newscasts, which have more footage below via Mahealani Richardson once again:

Check back soon – if the newscast airs and includes new footage, we will be sure to post!

The second bit of news, and perhaps the most exciting comes via producer Frank Marshall who took to Twitter to promise “big” Jurassic World 2 news soon – as Thursday the 22nd marks the ‘1-year until release’ date (in the US), our money is on it dropping then. Some have suggested this means set images via Entertainment Weekly, mirroring the news release schedule from Jurassic World in 2014, while others have their money on a title and logo.

If we’re really lucky, perhaps we will get a mix of both?

Not that we had any question, but Frank also confirmed that we will once again return to Isla Nublar, the fictional island seen in Jurassic Park and Jurassic World (Isla Sorna, the second island with dinosaurs on it, appeared in The Lost World and Jurassic Park 3). We’re thrilled to go back to the home of the two parks, and hope we can once again return to iconic locations such as the visitors center, alongside all new locales.

While the big news hasn’t been confirmed as dropping tomorrow, we do recommend you keep your eyes on our site and on social media. Until then, sound off in the comments below, and let us know what you want from the upcoming news and if you’re happy with the returning dinosaurs!

Bryce Dallas Howard Teases Dino On Jurassic World 2 Set

Jurassic fans have been fortunate enough to have Jurassic World star Bryce Dallas Howard on social media this time around for the sequel. Bryce has been sharing snippets from the set everyday that she is filming and this has been giving fans an obscure view of the production. Not only are these little glimpses fun to see, but it may also give us an idea of the order of which the scenes were filmed when the sequel is released next summer.

Yesterday was no different as Bryce took to her Twitter and posted a 9 second video. While initially this seems to be another obscure post featuring a video of the ground, it is the sounds you hear during the video and what this could mean for the sequel that have fans very excited.

As you will hear in the attached Twitter video below, Jurassic World sequel director J.A. Bayona is apparently getting the actors in the right mood for filming by playing dinosaur sounds on the set in Hawaii.

It is obvious those dinosaur sounds are of a Tyrannosaurus Rex and they sound very close to the sounds used in the original film ‘Jurassic Park’. Most notably around the 1:30 part of the clip below from the breakout scene.

In addition to the dinosaur roar, there are the sound of air blasts which is more even more intriguing and what makes this video really stand out. It could possibly be the sound of fog machines or even the hydraulics of an animatronic. All of this is assumption and can’t be verified at this time, but it is fun to speculate.

While this is just another small on set tease from Bryce, it is still enough to get fans excited. What do you think the air blasts were? Let us know your thoughts in the comment section below and on our forums.

Did Secret Cinema Just Announce Jurassic Park For Their Next Event?

In a world where we consider social media posts to be official confirmations, British events company Secret Cinema have just announced that their next project will be… Jurassic Park!

Life finds a way

A post shared by Secret Cinema (@secret_cinema) on

Secret Cinema specialise in “Live Cinema” experiences, often creating large sets based on the movie, and combining the screenings with interactive performances. One of their first major events was for Back to the Future where they created a life-size Hill Valley set.

The company have gone on to host a number of large movies, The Empire Strikes Back, Moulin Rouge! and 28 Days Later.

Now, via Instagram, Secret Cinema have seemingly confirmed that their next project will be Steven Spielberg’s Jurassic Park!

There is of course no further information on this and no written confirmation, but with the 25th Anniversary fast approaching and the current buzz surrounding the upcoming Jurassic World sequel, it’s safe to say Secret Cinema will take on the 1993 classic that we all know and love.

So what do you expect to see? Will we sit in a spinning auditorium and be greeted by multiple John Hammonds? Or will they up the ante and seat us on the main road where we can witness the T-rex breaking through the fence?

Let us know in the comments section below what your ideal Secret Cinema event for Jurassic Park would be!

And don’t forget – it’s Jurassic June! Join us in celebrating a whole month of Jurassic Park – we’re running a fantastic giveaway that ends 30th June, so submit your Jurassic selfie now!

Ian Malcolm Dialog Borrowed From Novel in Jurassic World 2 – But Jeff Goldblum Added More!

The news just isn’t stopping as Jurassic World 2 writer and producer Colin Trevorrow continues to do press rounds for his new film, The Book of Henry. Honestly, there has been so much news hitting from different outlets over the past few days, I wasn’t sure what to write an article about, or what the highlight of the article should be – but when more news regarding Dr. Ian Malcolm hit, I knew I had my lede.

While speaking to MTV on their Happy Sad Confused Podcast, Colin Trevorrow wasn’t shy about sharing new details (thanks to Screenrant for the initial reporting!)

“You know, I did rely on [Michael] Crichton for a lot. I used a lot of Crichton dialogue. Maybe one of my highlights of this whole process is Goldblum. Jeff Goldblum called me – and I’m not going to do an impression – but he was like, ‘Look, I’ve added a couple of things, and I thought I’d perform it for you.’ [Laughs] Oh, great, okay. So, we sat on the phone for an hour as he ran these lines, and I talked about it. And, I mean, that’s – it was almost better than being there on set. It was great.”

Colin previously hinted at this much – during our past podcast interview with him, he told us that dialog from the first novel made it into JW2. In fact, he jubiliantly shared that he enjoyed borrowing Michael Crichton’s dialog, saying “It makes me feel like such a good writer (…) Look at me, that’s a hell of a sentence!”

Speaking with MTV, Colin also teased again that the film will be more suspenseful and character driven:

“It’s just deeper, more character-based, and it definitely leans into suspense, especially in the second half. It does have the big action in the middle. There’s a sequence in the middle that I’ve been watching – I mean, I watch dailies every day – but I’ve started to see stuff come together, and it’s just insane.”

Stepping away from the excellent MTV Podcast (which is worth a full listen!), Colin Trevorrow also spoke to ET Online to continue sharing tantalizing details from the new film:

“I was the on-set writer for the movie, so I was there every day making sure that J.A. [Bayona] had everything that he needed. It was just such a rich, positive collaboration and by far my favorite [production] experience in my life so far. J.A. and I are pretty deeply connected when it comes to this franchise and what it needs and the kind of risks that we want to take. We’re definitely making a bold, new movie. It’s not going to be the same old thing you’ve seen before. I love that partnership, and I can’t wait for people to see what we’ve done.”

That quote there adds even further context to the recent discovery the (normal) script rewrites, as he continued to work with JA Bayona on set to better the stories finer details on an as-needed-basis. The collaborative nature of the project should really let JA Bayonas voice shine on the upcoming Jurassic Park sequel, which Colin has previously described as “a Spanish horror film with dinosaurs in it.”

The news drops for the upcoming Jurassic sequel certainly sounds good, and there is no doubt that Colin Trevorrow is an expert with talking about films in an exciting way without giving a single thing away. While I do prefer to know as little as possible when it comes to film specifics, I am itching for some new official images, a title, logo, or even a basic premise for the plot – but until then, I’m sure other interviews will keep us occupied!

Stay tuned – more news is surely inbound, and with any luck, something more exciting will drop June 22nd. Until then, sound off in the comments below!
