Help fund Phil Tippett's Mad God 2!
Posted by Jack DLM - Thursday 17 April 2014 at 11:03AM - 0 Comments

ImageYou may remember a few months ago I got the chance to interview Hollywood legend Phil Tippett, who has worked on such film franchises as Star Wars, Indiana Jones and our favourite, Jurassic Park. Phil is now working on the upcoming Jurassic World and is also working on part 2 of his own independent stop-motion project, Mad God.

"In 2012, after sitting on the shelf for 20 years, artists at Tippett Studio implored Phil to revive MAD GOD. The crew was entirely made up entirely of volunteers, including artists from Tippett Studio, students from local art schools, and industry veterans who remember the "good ol' days" when effects were made by people on sets photographing puppets one frame at a time."

The project is looking for funding to help finish part 2, with Phil Tippett and the team at Tippett Studios taking to Kickstarter to help raise the funds. The project has some fantastic gifts for the various pledge amounts, ranging from an autographed copy of the Blu-Ray/DVD combo pack, all the way to 2 tickets to the world premiere screening of Mad God: Part 2 in California, with a tour of Tippett Studios.

Phil was one of the main reasons the dinosaurs in Jurassic Park ended up so realistic, and now it's your chance to help fund a personal project of his. Check out the Kickstarter page and watch the video to learn more about the unique project!

First day of filming goes well, Irrfan Khan pictured on set!
Posted by Jack DLM - Friday 11 April 2014 at 02:49PM - 1 Comments

Thursday 10th April marked the first day of filming on Jurassic World, with the film crew, cast and numerous extras ready and waiting at the Honolulu Zoo. To celebrate the occassion, producer Frank Marshall tweeted the following:


While security was tight at the filming, with an extra claiming that "they put a security sticker on all the cellphones so that we can't take pictures". It seems the production team are going to great lengths to keep information about the film secret (and rightly so) but the DailyMail have published some exclusive photographs of Irrfan Khan on set, and what appears to be possible tour buggies. They also spotted a tube with an 'electric fence' sticker on it.

With massive thanks to our friends at Reel Tours Hawaii, we can also share these images from the set taken by a passing visitor, which show some extras working on the film. If you look closely in the second image you can see a blue banner sporting a Jurassic World logo.

Our final bit of news for you today is from the IndiaTimes, who claim that there was a slight hiccup on day 1 of filming for Irrfan Khan, with security guards having to break into his hotel room.

"The actor, who is currently in Hawaii to shoot for the Hollywood film Jurassic World, was so jet-lagged by the 27-hour flight that he slept well past the wake-up call the morning after he reached there. Though he was supposed to go for a routine check-up at 7 am for medical insurance etc, he overslept, oblivious to the attempts to contact him."

The actor himself, said:

"The security guards eventually broke into my room, only to find me asleep. I wonder if they felt I had committed suicide,"

However, this didn't seem to disrupt the filming schedule much, as Frank Marshall reported above, "all is good" on Jurassic World. Yesterday was a historic day for Jurassic Park fans and we can now only get excited for the next bit of news.

Original JP Jeep returns to Hawaii plus new vehicle!
Posted by Jack DLM - Thursday 10 April 2014 at 01:32PM - 8 Comments

Thanks to a user on Instagram, we have a first look at the vehicles in Jurassic World, and what's better than knowing that we will be seeing an old and memorable vehicle return?! An original staff vehicle from Jurassic Park, a Jeep Wrangler, apparently is returning, having arrived in Hawaii.

The Wrangler is looking old and rusty, perhaps hinting that we will be seeing parts of the old park return in flashbacks or in a section of the film. The vehicle looks like it's been left for quite some time and number 29 was the vehicle that Hammond rode in with the Lawyer, when they first get to the island. The return of this Jeep could mean we will see a part of the park that we never saw in the first film, or that the vehicle has been simply saved by the Patel Corporation. We really don't know how the Jeep will be used at this point, but it's exciting to speculate!

The photos come from a member of the Universal Studios Transportation Department, who is currently on Hawaii. He also posted a photograph of another vehicle which is supposedly for Jurassic World, which looks like an armoured security vehicle reminiscent of the vehicles used by InGen in The Lost World. If you look closely at the photograph you will see another vehicle behind the armoured truck.

Today is an exciting day; not only do we find out an original Jeep from the first film will be returning, but today also marks the first filming day of Jurassic World. Colin Trevorrow and his crew are shooting at the Honolulu Zoo today, with a lot of extras we are told.

If you, like me, have been waiting for this film for give-or-take 12 years, then today doesn't really feel real. It's hard to describe the feeling. I wish the best of luck to Colin Trevorrow and his crew and cast, who I'm sure are going to make a sequel that we're all going to love.

Stay tuned as news comes in. It's going to be a busy few months!

Is Andy Buckley in Jurassic World?
Posted by Jack DLM - Wednesday 09 April 2014 at 05:38PM - 0 Comments

ImageWSPA 7 has reported that actor Andy Buckley, known for his role as David Wallace in The Office, is starring in the upcoming Jurassic World.

"Actor Andy Buckley is best-known for his role as David Wallace on NBC’s hit comedy “The Office.” Buckley can also be seen as in the box office hit “Bridesmaids,” HBO’s “Veep” and the movie “The Other Guys” with Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg. Upcoming projects include roles in films “Horrible Bosses 2” and “Jurassic World” and appearances in HBO's “Silicon Valley” and Steve Carrell's new comedic game show “Riot,” which will air on FOX. This will be his fourth time playing in the tournament."

This is all the information that has been given at this point so we are unsure if it's simply an error or whether more cast members have yet to be announced.

Either way, Andy Buckley would not be a bad addition to the already great cast! Thanks to Brian for sending this our way!
