According to a self proclaimed Box Office insider, the Jurassic World teaser trailer has been pushed back from its supposed debut with Interstellar this November, to The Hobbit 3 on December 17th. This comes via the same source who originally confirmed that the teaser would be seen in cinemas with Interstellar. 'spatulashack' says:
"I just got word that the theatrical trailer has been pushed back to debut with The Hobbit. This is for strategic reasons and not because of any actual delay with getting it ready. Universal is choosing to debut the Fast 7 trailer on Interstellar instead. Whether or not they still choose to debut it online in November, I have no idea."
This certainly comes as a shock to people expecting to see the trailer within the next couple of weeks. There was also a strong belief that the trailer would be released online to coincide with the theatrical release - but now it would seem like that won't happen.
We have no idea why the trailer would have been delayed. Jurassic World still doesn't have a presence for everyday movie-goers so it begs the question - when are they going to actually start advertising this movie? At the start of the month, Ivan Flores uploaded a YouTube video where he described the Jurassic World teaser trailer that he saw. He mentioned that some of the visual effects weren't completed yet, but according to the box office insider above, that isn't a factor that has caused this delay.
Some people are expecting the teaser to be shown this weekend at MCM London Comic Con, which would make sense if the trailer was also going to be released online at some point soon. But now it seems as though the trailer won't be shown there - considering it's a public event there is a high risk of somebody filming it and leaking it online, which is something Universal Pictures wouldn't want.
Looks like we may be waiting another month or two before we see something from the upcoming film. Until then... be sure to check out our forums and leaves your thoughts about the teaser trailer!

UPDATE: Last night, I spoke with Paul Shirley on Twitter. Paul is the editor-in-chief for JoBlo.com. He has been hearing that the trailer will actually be released online MUCH sooner than December. I asked if he knew where (YouTube, Apple Trailers etc) but he wasn't sure.
JoBlo.com have followed Jurassic World's production fairly closely in the past and have reported multiple spoilers about the story that appear to be true, so while we do take rumours with a pinch of salt, it's worth keeping a close watch on Paul's twitter. Be sure to give him a follow!
UPDATE 2: Box Office insider 'Spatulashack' has elaborated on purpose of delaying the trailer, indicating that there was a tug-o-war between the marketing departments of Jurassic World and Fast 7. At one point both films were going to premiere during Interstellar, with Jurassic World taking the IMAX showings and Fast 7 on all others. Ultimately Fast 7 won out due to its release date being sooner than Jurassic's, and sticking it on both the IMAX and regular showings was less covulted. Ultimately, it now seems unlikely that we will see the Jurassic World trailer soon, as the digital marketing team wanted to give each trailer enough breathing room. Give the full post a read here!
Official Jurassic World Poster Revealed!
Posted by Sandy - Wednesday 15 October 2014 at 02:20AM - 9 Comments
Colin Trevorrow and Universal Pictures have unveiled the official Jurassic World teaser poster with a simple, yet effective tagline, "The Park is Open". It was posted via Twitter.
I personally think the teaser poster and logo look fantastic and give off a creepy vibe. Does this also mean we are getting very close to the teaser trailer hitting online? Doesn't this logo look really similar to the logo we use for our Facebook page and site? Let us know what you think about the poster in the comments.
A couple of weeks ago, Universal France were actively tweeting about a showcasing event they had and posted this exact poster, but in French. However, due to the logo being striking similar (if not exact) to our logo, we quickly dismissed it as a mistake, and tweeted Universal France the following tweet:
Of which they retweeted. But now it looks as though that poster was real!
So... we have been using the official Jurassic World logo for over a year - without even knowing. It looks like Universal have taken inspiration from our logo, which was designed by Christopher Bryan. I'm personally [Jack] not sure what to think, but the poster/logo is absolutely fantastic and I'm glad we finally get to see it!

Jurassic World makes an appearance at Brand Licensing Europe!
Posted by Jack DLM - Thursday 09 October 2014 at 01:06PM - 1 Comments
As the release date for Jurassic World gets closer, Universal Pictures have begun to talk about the merchandising for the upcoming film.
This weekend in London, Jurassic World made an appearance at the Brand Licensing Expo. This isn't the first time that Jurassic World has been showcased to a licensing audience. Back in June, the Las Vegas Licensing Expo also had posters from the film and information for companies looking to merchandise the film. They also gave away keyrings and bags of which I was lucky enough to get.
Thanks to various sources, such as Reel Tours Hawaii and JPLegacy, we have a few pictures from this weekend in London.
While we've not heard if Universal are giving away the same keyrings, or what they're showcasing from the film, it's great to see the film finally advertised a bit. Retail Merchandiser on Twitter also confirmed that Lego has the licensing to produce products for Jurassic World.
Hopefully we'll hear more soon about the merchandise for Jurassic World, and more about the Jurassic Park mobile game from Ludia.
RUMOR: Jurassic World trailer being test-screened; description!
Posted by ChrisLikesDinos - Monday 06 October 2014 at 06:29PM - 28 Comments
First off, I want to say that this fits into the rumor category, however most signs are pointing to this description being legitimate. It’s no secret that marketing firms crowdsource reactions to trailers, both online and in person. I have randomly been approached in malls and have seen trailers for large blockbusters months before their actual premiere. With that in mind, it shouldn’t be much of surprise that Universal is doing it with Jurassic World.
Youtube user “Ivan Flores” claims to have seen the trailer in such a situation, specifically inside of a Regal Cinema, where he was approached to take part in a survey. After agreeing, he was taken to a room in front of a computer, given head phones, and had the chance to watch the trailer twice before taking a survey about it. The following is a description, taken from his YouTube video:
Removed at the request of NBC/Universal.
It’s worth noting that while this is very likely a description of a real Jurassic World trailer, it doesn’t necessarily mean it will be the one we see with Interstellar. This sounds closer to an actual theatrical trailer which will likely premier sometime next year, opposed to an early teaser which is expected next month.
As always, we are trying to find out more information, so stay tuned for the latest on Jurassic World, and don’t forget to share your thoughts on the alleged trailer below!
