Sadly, it seems the rumors of a Jurassic World trailer at San Diego Comic Con were without merit. Universal and Legendary pictures just wrapped their Hall H panel, and not one mention of the film was made. Jurassic Worlds exclusion from Comic Con is a bit puzzling as it is a great way to spread awareness and build hype for films and franchises, something that a fourth Jurassic Park could certainly utilize. Further, Jurassic World will be released before next years Comic Con, so it won't make an appearance at SDCC 2015 either. Alas, perhaps Jurassic World 2 will be announced then (The Lost Park: Jurassic World anyone?)
Bad news aside, Universal has not completely forgotten its Jurassic fans- they have been continuing rolling around SDCC in their special Jurassic World Mercedes, handing out the limited edition Jurassic World posters. Perhaps we will get something else, in another non-traditional manner- we can't help but wonder when we will be welcomed to Jurassic World.
As always, stay tuned for the latest on Jurassic World!
BD Wong talks Jurassic World + Comic Con Updates!

In an interview with San Diego 6, Jurassic Park actor BD Wong discussed the upcoming Jurassic World and confirmed that he was filming last week in New Orleans. He is the only returning character from the previous three films, playing Dr Henry Wu, the scientist behind the dinosaurs.
Chris Pratt has now wrapped filming and is out promoting Guardians of the Galaxy. In an interview with ET, he states that his Jurassic World character plays a military veteran and further confirms that the film is indeed a sequel, playing 22 years after the first one. Check out the interview here!
In Comic Con news, while we have been hearing that Universal and Jurassic World won't be making an appearence, it now seems like we're going to get a surprise. While we know that Mark Englert's poster is going to be making the rounds, Universal have confirmed via Twitter and Facebook that they are going to be at SDCC with Legendary, which could either be for Crimson Peak, Dracula... or Jurassic World. The latter is now seeming possible, with the rumours that there will be some footage shown! The rumours are that Hall H will bring the surprise so stay tuned for more info!
And finally, it looks as though one of the Jurassic World Mercedes vehicles may just be heading to San Diego too. The vehicle was spotted by a Reddit user on Interstate 5 in California, which runs North to South.
This could mean that the vehicle is headed to San Diego for Comic Con, but we'll keep you updated on that. It could be a conincidence as the filming is nearing the finish the line and this particular vehicle may have wrapped.
There's a lot of evidence, or perhaps rumours, to suggest that we may be seeing the film at Comic Con so I think like any fan, we can only hope that we might get a teaser trailer or some footage from the film, that will then later be released online. If you're in SDCC this weekend, be sure to keep us updated on what happens, and enjoy your weekend!

San Diego Comic Con keeps delivering the goods! Following up yesterdays amazing poster/art reveal, we now have our first look at Jurassic Worlds Tyrannosaurus! Click the picture below to see her in full:
While incredibly familiar to her first appearance, the design has undergone some tweaks: her skin is noticeably greener (though not as green as the TLW Bull Rex), her facial ridge highlights are pale as opposed to dark, and she has pale scutes running down her neck. Comic Con officially kicks off Thursday, so keep your eyes peeled for more from Jurassic World. While the chances may be slim, perhaps Legendary may share something Jurassic World related during their Saturday Hall H panel. Stay tuned for more updates!
Courtney James Clark joins Jurassic World!

According to Deadline, actress Courtney James Clark has joined Colin Trevorrow's Jurassic World. She's joining an increasing list of actors and actresses for the film who have come in fairly late in the game, with filming set to wrap on August 6th.
There's no word on if she has filmed anything yet. Courtney has just finishing filming on Mind Puppets with Vinnie Jones and has worked alongside Zac Efron in The Lucky One. You can check out her IMDb here.
In related news, actress Judy Greer who plays Bryce Dallas Howard's sister in the movie, was interview on Larry King where she spoke about Jurassic World.
"When King asked her about Jurassic World, Greer was extremely cautious and didn't drop even the teeniest spoiler. She told King that she even had to read the script under tight security, stating that when it originally came to her, there was a someone parked outside her house to take it back as soon as she was done. When King expressed his surprise at keeping things under wraps in his manner, Greer suggested that it would be worth it. "Just wait, remember this moment, and you'll be like 'whaaat?'" she said, of when King would finally watch the movie and be completely blown away."
You can watch the clip here. It's great to hear her talk so positively about the film, and of course it's interesting to note how tight the security really was with this film. Universal have continued the secrecy through the filming and have attempted to keep things under wraps. While it's unfortunate that some things have leaked, it's to be expected with such a huge franchise and a majorly anticipated film.
Lead actor Chris Pratt has now wrapped filming on Jurassic World:
And he also spoke with Access Hollywood about the film. While he says nothing we don't already know, he speaks very positively of the movie and seems legitimately excited about it. Check the video out here!
The filming of Jurassic World is coming to an end. What an unbelievable sentence. Many of us have been waiting for this movie for 12 years, and now almost all of the filming is complete. What a journey this has been.
