Jurassic World News

The "Jurassic Park" films have been a consistent showcase of how practical and digital effects can work together in perfect harmony to transport audiences into the fantastical worlds of living dinosaurs. The first film was a groundbreaking demonstration of dinosaurs walking, roaring, and wreaking havoc across Isla Nublar, but five movies later, the dinosaur action has been kicked up a few notches.

Warning: major spoilers ahead for "Jurassic World Dominion." Proceed with caution."Jurassic World" hit theaters in 2015 following a 14-year absence of the "Jurassic Park" franchise on our screens, and it was met with open arms by moviegoers across the world. While certain critics at the time were a bit harsh on the film, the general vibe was not all that negative critically and general audiences went nuts for the film's "the park is open" concept. But where does one go from there?

The latest "Jurassic World" film came saddled with a lot of expectations — more than it could ever bear, truth be told. Following the audacious ending of "Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom," there is a new world order in place, with the human population learning to live alongside the dinosaur survivors of Isla Nublar. While this has the potential for an entirely new kind of story set in this world, the film quickly reverts to the same template we've seen several times before.The main reason people see the "Jurassic Park" films is for the dinosaurs.

This weekend sees "Jurassic World Dominion" rolling into theaters, which means the franchise is reaching something that feels at least a little bit like a conclusion. While producer Frank Marshall has very much made it clear that Universal intends to make more movies after this, the sixth entry in the "Jurassic" franchise is being billed as the end of a journey that started way back in 1993 with Steven Spielberg's original blockbuster classic.

All good things must come to an end, and the "Jurassic World" trilogy is no exception. While the "Jurassic" movies may well continue for years to come, this summer's "Jurassic World Dominion" is the culmination of a journey that, in some ways started back in the summer of 2015, but in many others, dates way back to 1993 when Steven Spielberg first brought Michael Crichton's beloved novel "Jurassic Park" to life on the big screen.Throughout this new trilogy, we've largely focused on Chris Pratt's Owen Grady and Bryce Dallas Howard's Claire Dearing, not to mention a whole bunch of dinosaurs.

Jurassic World Dominion's Script Got Help From A Franchise Wishlist By The Film's Stars "Where do you get your ideas?" It's a question people sometimes ask writers. But for Colin Trevorrow and Emily Carmichael, the co-writers of "Jurassic World Dominion," it's a question perhaps answered a little more easily, since some of their ideas came straight from the film's stars.For longtime fans, the main selling point with "Jurassic World Dominion" may be seeing Sam Neill, Laura Dern, and Jeff Goldblum — the stars of the first "Jurassic Park" movie — back onscreen together after almost 30 years.

How Colin Trevorrow's Canceled Star Wars Movie Helped Him Make Jurassic World Dominion A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away, "Jurassic World" director Colin Trevorrow was originally hired by Lucasfilm to step behind the wheel of "Star Wars: Episode IX" and guide it to its grand finale. Those plans very obviously (and very publicly) changed when Trevorrow was inauspiciously given the boot, thanks to those good ol' fashioned "creative differences." This in turn allowed "The Force Awakens" director J.J. Abrams to make a last-minute return for the film that would eventually become "The Rise of Skywalker" and ...

"Jurassic Park" is one of the greatest modern films, a movie that changed blockbusters and special effects forever. It is also a film that has never been matched by its franchise, though it did try pulling crazier and crazier stunts to try and surpass it, from a T-Rex loose in San Diego, to scary flying dinosaurs in "Jurassic Park III," to a fully functioning park in "Jurassic World," and lastly a full-on gothic horror haunted dino house movie.The latest trick up the old InGen sleeve seems to be: do "Fast and Furious" but with dinosaurs.
