Well, it's been a blast! This competition was fun from the start, and something I have wanted to do for a while now. There are so many talented fans out there who submitted their entry and it truly was difficult to decide on the winners. And here they are!
The winners have been emailed so please reply as soon as you can so we can send out your prize as soon as possible!
We have run contests before but nothing this big. It was amazing to go through all of your entries and read your story concepts and briefs. It's very clear what the fans want to see for a Jurassic World game, and I think we will send some (if not all!) these entries to Colin Trevorrow/Universal Pictures, just to show what the fans are hoping for.
We'd like to thank you all for entering and for sharing the contest around! We had 73 entries in total. You can view all of the runners up here! We will be giving full feedback to those who won, and the runners up in our next podcast, so stay tuned for that.
We would like to thank Phil Tippett & Niketa for their amazing support for this contest and for providing the winning prize, the signed poster! Huge thanks to Jonathan from Jurassic Fan Gear for also providing some of the winning prizes. And a final thanks to Mark from Fifth Sun t-shirts, for providing the awesome Jurassic tees!
Entertainment Weekly's preview on Jurassic World

Last summer, while the cast and crew of Jurassic World were in New Orleans filming, Entertainment Weekly visited the set to interview the director and the lead actors about the film. They describe the Main Street set as "elaborate", which includes a visitors center, a gift shop, and restaurants which can all be seen on the park's official website.
"It's going to be super boring," jokes Chris Pratt, who plays an ex-military dude living on the island and studying raptors. "It's just, like, us watching dinosaurs for an hour and a half." Hardly. Soon enough, Pratt and costar Bryce Dallas Howard are ducking for cover from flying pteranodons and screaming, "Run!"
The article describes how Park Operations Manager Claire Dearing, played by Bryce Dallas Howard, introduces a new hybird dinosaur - the Indominus Rex - into the park to boost attendance, but this dinosaur quickly eludes the security and escapes it's enclosure, causing havoc across the park.
Colin also discusses the relationship between Claire and Owen, which was seen briefly in the new clip shown on MTV. He says that they don't like each other at all, but "by the end that's changed."
Producer Frank Marshall also discussed the film and spoke about his and Steven Spielberg's choice of Colin as the director of the film.
"Colin understood the [Jurassic] movies," Marshall says. "That's what Steven and I felt was the most important thing - he's a storyteller." Trevorrow is aware of the tall order he faced. "There are a lot of people in my generation who dreamed of being filmmakers who would love to have this job, and I feel a responsibility to all of them to make this everything that we all wish it could be," he says. "If I can pull that off, that's my gift back to Steven."
Be sure to read the entire article on Entertainment Weekly's site! What did you think of the new clip? Be sure to let us know in the comments section below.
