‘Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous’ Season 2 Coming January 22 – New Trailer!

Adapt. Evolve. Survive. Everything’s at stake in the new ‘Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous’ season 2 trailer, which will drop on Netflix on January 22nd!

Last season ended with the Camp Cretaceous kids trying to escape the island, only to reach the dock and find out they had been left behind. In the season 2 trailer, we see Darius, Yaz, Brooklynn, Kenji, and Sammy working together to figure out how to survive on an island inhabited by dinosaurs. The group heads for Main Street to find a phone, only to find the T.rex has set up her new lair there! This season promises more human-dinosaur interactions (some filled with danger) including compys, brachiosaurus, T.rex, baryonyx, ceratosaurus, sinoceratops, parasaurolophus, ankylosaurus, and many more! The trailer doesn’t feature, possibly everyone’s favorite character, Bumpy, who we last saw approaching an unconscious Ben who was separated from the rest of the campers last season.

What challenges will the campers face in season 2? Will Ben and Bumpy reunite with the rest of the group? Who else is on the island?

Iron Studios Announces Two New Jurassic Park Statues

The epic final battle scene from Jurassic Park is now available in statue form from Iron Studios!

Coming in at an impressive 1/20 scale, this statue is over 18 inches tall and 14.5 inches wide! This limited edition statue features the terrifying scene where the velociraptors are surrounding our beloved characters as the T. rex bursts into the visitors center.

The figures of Dr. Alan Grant, Dr. Ellie Sattler, Lex, Tim, two velociraptors, and the T. rex are highly detailed and all hand painted.

On a base imitating marble, after all Iron Studios spared no expense, with the film’s logo adorning the front, the fossils fallen at the feet of the figures, with Lex and Tim Murphy protected by Ellie Sattler and Alan Grant from two Velociraptors and the imposing T-Rex circling ready to capture the Velociraptor that is about to jump on Alan, Iron Studios presents it’s statue “The Final Scene – Demi Art Scale 1/20 – Jurassic Park – Iron Studios”.

After the collapse of the first park on Nublar Island, some of the most dangerous predatory species escape from their cages, including mortal Velociraptors. Seeking refuge and protection in the control room at the visitor center, doctors Alan Grant and Ellie Sattler, along with the children Lex and Tim Murphy, grandchildren of John Hammond, the park’s creator, are chased by raptors. The four protagonists run out of the control room and reach the main lobby, and they find themselves trapped when one of the predators advances to strike, jumping on their prey, is unusually captured in the jaws of a T-Rex, which invades the space in search of his hunting. Thus, the giant tyrant king of the dinosaurs, involuntarily becomes the savior of the group, when confronting and being confronted by the Velociraptors, giving the scientists and the children a chance to escape.

This unforgettable and striking sequence from the movie Jurassic Park, created by the master Steven Spielberg, once again comes to life at the hands of Iron Studios, which replicates the final scene of this 1993 Universal Studios superproduction. Faithful in the smallest details, relive that experience in your collection and don’t be surprised if in your subconscious you hear the unmistakable roar of the T-Rex every time you catch a glimpse of this piece.

This beautifully rendered scene is up for pre-order now for $899.99, with an expected release date of September 30, 2021. You can find all the information on Iron Studios.

Iron Studios also announced a brand new Muldoon and Raptor statue this week during their livestream! At 1/10 scale, they captured the moment when the “clever girl” velociraptor is jumping to attack Muldoon. The detail and paint on the raptor looks phenomenal in this first promotional image. While we can’t see much of Muldoon’s face, the attention to detail on his socks and thigh muscle is spot on. We can’t wait to see more images of this one!

Based on other 1/10 scale statues on Iron Studio’s site, we’re guessing this figure will be at least $150, so start saving now if this is something you’d like to add to your collection! We’ll keep all the Jurassic fans up to date as we get more information from Iron Studios in the coming months!

Let us know your thoughts on these new statue in the comments! Will you be adding either of them to your collection?

Colin Trevorrow Talks ‘Jurassic World: Dominion’ on Comic-Con@Home Panel

The Directors on Directing panel released today as part of San Diego Comic Con’s Comic-Con@Home. Colin Trevorrow was one of the featured directors on the panel who discussed their past, present, and future projects.

In the panel, he touches on ‘Jurassic World’, ‘Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom’, ‘Jurassic World: Dominion’, and ‘Jurassic World: Battle at Big Rock’. Check out the video below!

Around the 5:00 mark he talks about making the emotional case for “Jurassic Park 4”.

At 11:50 he talks about meeting with Sam Neill, Laura Dern, and Jeff Goldblum and discussing them reprising their roles for ‘Dominion’.

At 18:06 The announcement that ‘Dominion’ would resume filming (this panel was recorded in June) and the challenges they are facing. During the hiatus the script wasn’t changed much and they were able to “put several sequences through the visual effects pipeline”.

At 24:00 Each ‘Jurassic’ movie getting more practical and ‘Dominion’ will have more animatronics than they had in the previous two. The digital extensions for animatronics have been improving so they will be able to match the textures on the animatronics. All of the dinosaurs have lighting references so they can see how light reacts with the skin and the environment. (How cool would it be to see the room with all the dinosaur references?!)

At 29:10 ‘Battle at Big Rock’ was shot handheld in VR by Colin.

At 33:27 changing from ‘Jurassic Park‘ to ‘Jurassic World’ took some convincing.

At 56:50 Paul McCartney visited the studio while Colin and Michael Giacchino were recording the soundtrack for ‘Jurassic World’.

Those are all the ‘Jurassic’ related clips, but I recommend watching the whole panel as Colin, Robert Rodriguez, and Joseph Kosinski give some interesting insights into the world of directing. There’s even a cool moment for Star Wars fans towards the end.

Bryce Dallas Howard Shares Battle Damage Photos From ‘Jurassic World Dominion’ Set

Bryce Dallas Howard took to Twitter yesterday to share some behind the scenes photos from the filming of Jurassic World: Dominion! The cast and crew have been back at work for a couple weeks after filming at Pinewood Studios was suspended earlier this year.

After sharing a “throwback Thursday” photo of her and Chris Pratt during the filming of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, Chris prompted her to show off the bruises she’s earned from doing stunts on the new film. It looks like she has major bruising on both her arms and a huge bruise on her leg!

Judging by these bruises, it looks like Claire will have her fair share of action in this next movie! Any guesses on what kind of stunts Claire will be involved in? (Climbing trees? Scaling electric fences? Using gymnastics to kick a dinosaur out of a window?)

Let us know your guesses in the comments!

The brand new Isla Nu-Bar and the updated Jurassic Café opened today at Universal Studios Hollywood!

Costa Rican-inspired cuisine and flavorful Tiki cocktails served at Jurassic Café and all-new tropical Isla Nu-bar add to the dynamic guest experience as part of Universal Studios Hollywood’s new mega attraction opening this summer, “Jurassic World—The Ride,” based on the JURASSIC WORLD blockbuster films.

Borrowing its name from the fictitious Central American island in the JURASSIC WORLD movies, the stand-alone, open-air Isla Nu-bar, complete with a thatched roof, serves up tropical-themed Tiki cocktails in three collectible cups: Etched Tiki, Bamboo-styled Tiki and Tiki God.

Whether blended or made-to-order with fresh juices, every aromatic blended drink is adorned with a pineapple leaf and edible orchid flower. Flavorable beverages include Tropical Margarita, Piña Colada and Painkiller, along with island cocktails such as Tiki Tai, Bird of Paradise, Ti Peach, Rum Runner and Mai Tai.

With Universal Studios Hollywood’s Executive Chef Marie Grimm at the helm, the new Jurassic Café caters to a selection of Costa Rican-themed cuisine, inspired by the location of the JURASSIC WORLD movies. Mouth-watering menu items include Sweet Corn Cakes with Slow Roasted Mojo Pork or Spicy Mojo Jackfruit, Citrus Glazed Chicken, Fresh Roasted Red Snapper and Isla Burger. Tempting starters include savory Chorizo and Potato Empanadas, Crispy Lettuce Leaf Roll with Shrimp, Tropical Fruit Salad and Pomegranate Guacamole with plantain chips. All entrees will be accompanied by fresh green papaya salad and Costa Rica’s national dish, Gallo Pinto – traditional rice and beans.

The food and drinks are looking incredible, although we do wish the drinks had appropriately Jurassic World themed names. We can’t wait to fully explore this area, its new secrets and fun to be had, plus ride the Jurassic World ride when it eventually opens later this Summer! In the meantime, more information is available at www.UniversalStudiosHollywood.com, and be sure to follow their social media pages for all the latest updates!.
