WATCH THE JURASSIC WORLD TRAILER HERE!

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!

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!

Hawaii Film & Video magazine discuss Jurassic World
Posted by Jack DLM - Thursday 02 October 2014 at 05:01PM - 1 Comments
After an extensive four week shoot in Hawaii for Jurassic World, the production moved to New Orleans. For the past 22 years, the franchise itself has shot parts of all the films on the islands of both Oahu and Kauai, which are memorable for their iconic and scenic locations.
In Hawaii Film & Video magazine, producer Patrick Crowley discussed what Hawaii had to offer for the production and why they chose to return to Hawaii. It's not just the locations, but the tax incentives that the islands offer are beneficial for such a film.
Be sure to read the magazine here which reveals more about the production, including hiring crew on the islands and more!

Jurassic Park & Philosophy: An Interview with the Editors!
Posted by Jack DLM - Monday 29 September 2014 at 11:18AM - 3 Comments
Over the past couple of months, I have been speaking with the editor of a book titled 'Jurassic Park and Philosophy'. Nicolas Michaud got in touch with me a while back looking for a blurb for the back cover. Our writer Chris provided a quote after reading through the book (as pictured) and we now have interviewed Nicolas to tell us more about this fascinating book.
The book itself takes the views of twenty-one philosophers and investigates the implications that Jurassic Park has had on our lives. It asks an important question - should we bring back dinosaurs? Jurassic Park taught us an important lesson about nature. Life finds a way, and you cannot contain it.
It's a great read and something all Jurassic Park fans can enjoy! Click below to read our interview with Nicolas Michaud and Jessica Watkins.
