After months of speculation and rumors on just when we will see footage from Jurassic World, an insider on the Boxoffice forums has reported it will premier this November on Interstellar. If November sounds familiar to you, it is because extras involved in shooting scenes with the Mosasaur reported that they were told a trailer would likely hit November as well. That had led to some speculation that the trailer would perhaps premiere on blockbuster The Hunger Games Mockingjay Part 1 (November 21st), or Universals own Dumb and Dumber To (November 14th). However, Interstellar makes perfect sense- the film is being produced by Legendary Pictures (who are involved with Jurassic World), and its November 7th opening date means the trailer could also be on the two aforementioned films.
It's important to note that this only a rumor, and although the insider in question has a good track record on information, things are always changing in the movie industry. That said, all early buzz points to us seeing something from Jurassic World this November, and a film such as Chris Nolan's Interstellar seems like the perfect place to show it first. Special thanks to Mulder on Jurassic Park Legacy for pointing out this news first. As always, stay tuned for updates and the latest on Jurassic World!

Judy Greer and Irrfan Khan talk Jurassic World

Now that Jurassic World has wrapped filming and is now more than likely being admired over in the editing suite, news on the film is fairly quiet. I thought I'd round up some of the recent interviews that talk about the film. Speaking with ComicBookMovie.com, actress Judy Greer spoke about her role in the upcoming Jurassic World.
"And while she wouldn't reveal whether her character meets up with any dinosaurs, Greer did confirm that she'll be playing Bryce Dallas Howard's sister in a "small, but poignant" role."
Irrfan Khan spoke with First Post Entertainment about filming Jurassic World.
"It was so much fun," said Khan. "Though it is a huge epic project, everyone on the crew was so relaxed. There was no attempt to appear self-important. Throughout the shooting there was a sense of playfulness in the atmosphere. I felt completely at home and we wrapped up the film in record time." Talking about his director, Khan said of Trevorrow, "Just observing him at work I felt so much richer."
While he plays the park owner in the movie, it looks like he won't have a hefty amount of screen time, as he describes below.
When asked about the length of his role in Jurassic World, Khan was diplomatic. "I am very happy with what we’ve shot," he said. "How the role finally shapes up depends on so many things. I appeared for much less screen-time than I had shot for in Slumdog Millionaire and Spiderman. But that was for the betterment of the final product. No one in the West is waiting to upstage me or sabotage my career."
And finally, our friend Scallenger managed to get an interview with Trespasser writer Austin Grossman. Be sure to check that out here, and check out the full Jurassic Time website for more cool stuff.
Colin Trevorrow pays tribute to Richard Attenborough

Director of Jurassic World Colin Trevorrow has taken to Twitter to pay respects to actor Sir Richard Attenborough, who passed away yesterday at the age of 90. Richard Attenborough is most famously known as playing John Hammond in Jurassic Park and he often talked about how he'd love to return for Jurassic Park 4, if Steven Spielberg ever called him.
While in recent years we knew that it might not be possible, it looks like John Hammond will be remembered in the upcoming Jurassic World. The director tweeted this image with the quote "In Memoriam."
While not confirmed, it looks like this is an image from the set of Jurassic World - not to be confused with this statue from Universal Studios Japan. The building design matches the design of the Jurassic World IMAX theatre.
The tributes have been pouring in for Richard Attenborough, with Steven Spielberg saying "He was a dear friend and I am standing in an endless line of those who completely adored him".
Richard Attenborough has passed away at 90

According to the BBC, 90 year old Jurassic Park actor Richard Attenborough has passed away. The report states that he passed away lunchtime on Sunday, according to his son.
It was well known that the actor had been living in a nursing home with his wife and over the past few years had suffered deteriorating health. In 2008 he suffered a fall in his home after a stroke and was confined to a wheelchair ever since. In 2013 he moved into a nursing home with his wife as, according to his brother David Attenborough, they both needed full time care.
While I did find a weird article from 2 days ago that claimed his recent death report was a hoax, it does seem as though this is true, especially if the BBC have reported it.
Such a shame. Goodbye Pinkie Brown. Goodbye John Hammond. Goodbye Richard Attenborough. Rest in peace.
