Hold on to your butts – months of rumors about a potential Jurassic World and Transformers crossover have come true! Today Hasbro has announced an all new set based upon an iconic moment from the very first Jurassic Park: Tyrannocon Rex vs Autobot JP93!
This is a set I personally never expected, but would have killed for as a kid, and I fully expect it to be highly sought after by collectors. The Tyrannosaurus Rex in the set is inspired Megatron’s Tyrannosaurus form from Beast Wars (which the latest live-action Transformers movie ‘Rise of the Beasts’ is based upon), while ‘Autobot JP93’ is an all-new character with a more typical Transformers theme.
If you are looking for a way to refresh your closet, look no further than this new Jurassic Park clothing line from The Hundreds. Starting June 24, you can order a variety of Jurassic inspired outfits to keep you looking fresh as you head to an IMAX theater to see the new 5 minute preview of Jurassic World Dominion.
The collection pulls inspiration from the wild wardrobe of the classic ‘90s film, putting a modern spin on vintage safari gear and adding their own signature technical features. Fans of the franchise can sport new shirts, pants, and jackets all displaying a unique Jurassic look. There’s even a camouflage tie-dye print for the matching Vest and Shorts as a different take on Jurassic Park gear.
Graphics for the collection include a distinct take on classic theme park souvenir shirts, as well as a custom pattern made from the ‘Caution’ and ‘Danger’ signs seen throughout the film – used as an all-over print across the Park T-Shirt, Embryo Pullover, and Malcolm Sweatpants.
Jurassic Park aficionados and streetwear fans alike will be able to complete their collection with the Ranger Safari Hat, which is accompanied by a Corduroy Snapback, Acid Wash Beanie, and other timeless accessories.
This new batch of Jurassic merch is sure to fly off the shelves, so get your hands on them while you can! You can find all this new gear on The Hundreds App, their online shop located here, or their brick and mortar store in Los Angeles.

This year’s Summer Game Fest kicked off with its virtual live stream to deliver all the exciting announcements on the future of gaming. For ‘Jurassic World’ fans, of course, the big question was: will there be another game related to the franchise? That question was answered when Jeff Goldblum himself announced Frontier’s continuation of their park-building triumph with ‘Jurassic World: Evolution 2’!
‘Jurassic World: Evolution‘ was released on June 2018 by Frontier Developments, and was a immersive park-building game for the PC and other consoles. With the assistance of characters from the franchise, such as Claire Dearing, Dr. Henry Wu, and Ian Malcolm; players would be tasked with creating and controlling the environments for over 50 dinosaur species. This game was a quick hit with fans, especially when a classic ‘Jurassic Park’-themed DLC hit on December 2019. Ever since that final DLC, fans had been anticipating a sequel to further their creations with new elements.
‘Jurassic World: Evolution 2’ promises not only new locales, themes, and story elements from the upcoming ‘Jurassic World: Dominion’ film but also a much needed expansion on the gameplay!
During Summer Fest, Goldblum dramatically announced the trailer, saying it will “elevate you to new heights”, “submerge you to new depths” and “challenge you to control chaos”. The trailer then played, showcasing pteranodons, brachiosaurs, coelophysis, snow-capped mountains, and a mosasaur! This marks the premiere of water-based prehistoric reptiles for the game!
The official press release explains in great detail the extent of this game’s expansion of what has come before:
“Based on Universal Pictures’ blockbuster film franchise and created in collaboration with Universal Games and Digital Platforms, Jurassic World Evolution 2 builds upon the ground-breaking and beloved 2018 dinosaur park management simulation. It offers players a thrilling front seat as they take charge of one of the greatest theme parks of all time.
With a brand new, immersive narrative campaign voiced by cast members from across the Jurassic World film franchise, exciting new features, four engaging game modes, and an enhanced and expanded roster of dinosaurs, Jurassic World Evolution 2 provides fans with everything they need to create authentic and compelling Jurassic World experiences.
Players will leave the Muertes Archipelago for the first time and build their own authentic Jurassic Worlds across diverse new environments, from dense forests to scorched deserts, in efforts to conserve and contain more than 75 prehistoric species. These include all-new flying and marine reptiles, brought to life with captivating realism. They’ll display brand new behaviours as they interact with each other, fight for dominance, and react intelligently to the world around them.
In Jurassic World Evolution 2, players dive into an original single player campaign featuring iconic film actors reprising their roles. Join Dr. Ian Malcolm (voiced by Jeff Goldblum), and Claire Dearing (voiced by Bryce Dallas Howard) in an immersive and exciting narrative experience set after the Earth-shattering events of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom.
Chaos Theory mode is another major addition. It offers a reimagined take on pivotal moments from the Jurassic World film franchise as players strive to make their own mark and change the course of events. Elsewhere, for those looking to unleash their creativity, Sandbox mode delivers everything players need to create their perfect Park, while Challenge mode tests their mastery of the game.
Across all modes we’ve dramatically improved our signature management and construction gameplay to give players everything needed to create their ultimate Jurassic Worlds. Whether it’s deeper management tools and creative options, fresh buildings to construct and customise, or handy shortcuts to make life easier, in Jurassic World Evolution 2, players can truly flex their managerial muscle.
Jurassic World Evolution 2 launches in late 2021 on PC, PS5, Xbox Series X|S, PS4, and Xbox One.”
With the continuation of this fantastic park builder, there remains the question of whether or not we will see other game titles released soon. Will there be a continuation of the popular ‘Lego Jurassic World’ game? Or will we finally get a brand-new first-person exploration of the islands, and beyond? Only time, the ever-flowing river, will tell.
Be sure to check out our detailed analysis of the announcement trailer and screenshots below:

Hot off the heels of learning we’ll get our first look at ‘Jurassic World Dominion’ exclusively during IMAX screenings of ‘Fast and the Furious 9’, we now have details about what the exclusive preview entails!
Opening up 65 million years in the past, we will see the dinosaurs as they originally were, in their natural prehistoric environments. This includes newcomer Moros intrepidus, a small Tyrannosaurid which can be seen sporting full coat of feathery plumage in the below image. As for the larger species, sans feathers? That’s none-other than the much anticpated Giganatosaurus.
The IMAX® exclusive allows fans to see the biggest, boldest chapter in the Jurassic series yet on the biggest screen and in the most thrilling way possible. “As part of our celebration welcoming moviegoers back into theaters this summer, we couldn’t think of a more perfect way to say, ‘thank you’ to the hundreds of millions of Jurassic and Fast fans around the world,” said Jim Orr, President of Domestic Theatrical Distribution for Universal Pictures. “This first look at Jurassic World: Dominion that Colin and his team put together is like nothing you’ve ever seen before. Even better, there’s simply no more perfect place to experience both the Dominion Preview and F9 than on a massive IMAX® screen. This really is the ultimate movie-fan experience.”
The five-minute Special Extended Preview of Jurassic World: Dominion, which audiences will be able to experience in full-screen 1:90:1 IMAX® aspect ratio,includes a prologue to the film’s narrative and is set 65 million years ago, during the Cretaceous period, when dinosaurs roamed the entire Earth. The breathtaking, action-packed scenes, featuring Oscar® winner Michael Giacchino’s iconic score, reveal what Earth looked like long before humans existed and tell the origin story of how dinosaur DNA first came to be carried by a mythic mosquito. The Preview features seven new species of dinosaurs, created by the legendary Industrial Light & Magic, that have never been seen in any Jurassic film before. But the Preview doesn’t end there and holds some real trademark Jurassic surprises with dinosaurs later roaming an Earth that is decidedly less theirs alone.
“Ever since I was a kid, I have wanted to see dinosaurs in their natural habitat,” director Colin Trevorrow says. “It may have taken a few decades, but with a little help from ILM, Universal and Amblin, it has finally happened. This Preview is just a glimpse of the film we’ve made. It’s an epic celebration of everything Steven Spielberg and Michael Crichton created, and I can’t wait to share it with the world next summer.”
The Preview will be available at IMAX® screenings of F9 in more than 40 countries and territories including Argentina, Australia, Austria, Belgium, Brazil, Bulgaria, Canada, Central America, Chile, Colombia, Croatia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Ecuador, Finland, France, Germany, Hungary, Indonesia, India, Israel, Italy, Japan, Malaysia, Mexico, Mongolia, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, Romania, Serbia, South Africa, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan, Thailand, Trinidad, United Kingdom, Ukraine, United States and Vietnam. (In countries where F9 is opening earlier than June 25, the Preview will be available on opening day on IMAX® screens in those markets.)
“This sequence was made to be seen on the biggest screen possible. Luckily, IMAX theaters are back, and all over the world we’re returning to theaters because movies bring us closer together,” Trevorrow says. “I think we need that shared experience right now … maybe more than we ever have.”
This is a big day for Jurassic World, Park, and Paleontology (with a major caveat) fans alike. The appearance of feathered dinosaurs in the Jurassic franchise has been long requested, and it seems Dominion has spared no expense in giving them their much anticipated exciting debut.
As for what else the preview will showcase? We hear there will be lots of exciting T. rex action, modern day (and perhaps prehistoric), which will steal the show. Likewise, Dreadnoughtus, Quetzalcoatlus, Oviraptor, Nasutoceratops, and Iguanodon will showcase in the opening – all being entirely new, other than Nasutoceratops which featured in Battle at Big Rock.
As for the paleontological caveat — it seems Giganatosaurus and Tyrannosaurus rex will cross paths, which is well, quite absurdly fictional. Not only were they from two separate continents, they were separated by more time than when man evolved from primates. In an age of misinformation, that’s frustrating to hear, as this will greatly misinform the public about these animals, and be a huge hinderance for proper paleo-science education.
That rant aside, it is incredibly exciting to hear so many new species will feature, and we cannot wait to see their paleo-accurate depictions. We can’t help but wonder how much the prehistoric Tyrannosaurus Rex design, featured on the poster with small hair-like feathers, will vary from its de-extinct Jurassic Park iteration. Likewise, will Mattel or other merch manufactures bring these designs to life? It certainly would make a great display with them next to one another!

Tickets for ‘F9’ are on sale now — be sure to pick up your IMAX screening today!
Hold on to your butts, because this Jurassic June is going to be a proper celebration of the franchise. After weeks of rumors and speculation, we now know more about the plans for ‘Jurassic World Dominion’s’ heavily teased trailer: revealed by Dr. Alan Grant himself it’ll premiere with a scene from the film exclusively during IMAX screenings of ‘Fast and the Furious 9’!
This all-new poster seems to show a mosquito biting a dinosaur over 65-million years ago, which is full of exciting possibilities if it’s not just for the poster – especially with the tagline “It All Started Here”. We imagine we’ll know lots more soon.
UPDATE: It seems we are traveling back in time with Jurassic World Dominion, seeing the dinosaurs in their habitat prior to cloning. Most excitingly, this includes the debut of feathered dinosaurs within the franchise! Take a look at the all-new look at the opening of the film courtesy of Rob Keyes of Screenrant.
We had earlier speculated about a ‘F9’ trailer connection, and it’s great to have further details and confirmation about how the exclusive preview will make its debut. While there is no word yet on what exactly the footage will entail, we suspect it may be an extended scene from the film leading into the trailer itself, with the aforementioned scene remaining exclusive to IMAX screenings only. However, we do suspect trailer itself without the extended sequence will be available online soon after.
While ‘Fast 9’ doesn’t hit theaters until June 25th, tomorrow (June 10th) is the year-out release date of the upcoming Jurassic Park sequel — so we fully suspect we may get even more news then! Further, while it remains unconfirmed, it seems Empire Magazine will have a preview of the footage to come, including an interview with director Colin Trevorrow.
Got to see 5 mins of spectacle from a 2022 biggie on an IMAX screen. Interview with the director on Empire Online tomorrow.
Empire Magazine has been a long time partner with Universal and Colin Trevorrow for the Jurassic World franchise, and with Colin’s recent hints about news hitting soon, it certainly seems like the stars are aligning.
Further, tomorrow may have even more in store for Jurassic fans, with the official opening of the Velocicoaster resort, and a rumored Jurassic World game reveal at Summer Game Fest. While the latter remains unconfirmed, Geoff Keighly has been dropping Jurassic hints on Twitter, which certainly coincide with Jeff Goldbum’s involvement in the show – not to mention Frontier Developments, the Jurassic World Evolution developers, are partnered with Summer Game Fest.
