Author: Chris Picard | Mar-08-2013 5:35 PM
Check out this behind the scenes video, showing how the 'Spitter' or Dilophosaurus was created for Jurassic Park by Stan Winston School of Character Arts.
This video shows the process of creating the iconic Dinosaur which blinded Dennis Nedry in the film. From the creature's initial conceptualization and artwork to the actual mechanics and puppeteering, this video offers an inside look at one of the many stages which helped shape Jurassic Park into one of the best films of all time. Browse some artwork and images from the Stan Winston website below:
So, was the Dilophosaurus your favorite Dinosaur from Jurassic Park? Let us know in the comments section below!
Catch the menacing Dilophosaurus again this April when Jurassic Park returns to Theaters and IMAX cinemas in 3D!

Dilophosaurus was a more or less exaggerated antagonist for Jurassic Park. I don't think it got enough screen time, and the whole frill/venom/rattlesnake hissing thing was a little much. I wish they had had Dilo hunting another dinosaur or at least running around a little bit, instead of standing around and then randomly attacking a fat guy in the rain. They wasted the potential of Dilo to be a more cunning predator. Other than all this, I did enjoy it's appearance in JP. They should definitely bring it back for JPIV! Maybe it could appear hunting some Compy's or maybe a lone raptor, then get ambushed by a bunch of other raptors.
Frank Marshall Answers To Jurassic Park 4 Rumors
Author: Chris Picard | Mar-03-2013 12:51 PM
Earlier this past month, many Jurassic Park 4 rumors started circulating around the net from one particular source who claimed to be potentially involved with the project. The rumors suggested Jurassic Park 4's $200M+ budget and production time estimates. A few days ago, Jurassic Park 4 Producer, Frank Marshall commented via Twitter about the rumors, simply saying:
"No truth to those rumors." - @LeDoctor / Twitter
As we suggested upon our initial posts about these rumors, they had to be taken with a grain of salt, and it would seem our skepticism paid off.
The roller coaster of Jurassic Park 4 rumors has been ongoing ever since Jurassic Park 3 was released and don't expect it to slow down until the studio and/or producers make any official announcements.
With these rumors put to rest, now we can eagerly await the announcement of a Director for the project! With a projected June 13th, 2014 release date, the team behind Jurassic Park 4 don't have much time to waste now if they plan to deliver a fully polished Jurassic Park installment which meets the expectations of hungry fans.

Well we know that Steven Spielberg isn't directing so i would have to say that i want Joe Johnston to direct since the third one i feel was pretty good as well as that we would have someone know what there doing instead of a new director who knows

James Cameron would be nice...

Im upset Steven isnt working on this one. And I sincerely hope Joe doesnt fuck this one up like he did with III (premature, unnecessary action, plot that flies past you...) Hopefully this one is much better, or you can believe some pissed off emails will be made to the one responsible.

Ratorex in Jurassic Park 4? New Dinosaurs Discovered!

Ratorex in Jurassic Park 4? New Dinosaurs Discovered!
Author: Chris Picard | Feb-28-2013 2:50 PM
With Jurassic Park 4 under way, we can't help but wonder what new Dinosaurs we might see in the new film. Since Jurassic Park 3's release, dig teams all over the world have uncovered some new and exotic Dinosaur remains which could very well be featured in the upcoming Jurassic Park 4.
One of these latest discoveries has my inner-kid going berserk. It's a cross between a Velociraptor and a Tyrannosaurus Rex which scientists have properly named "Raptorex". I know, too good to be true. The two most iconic Dinosaurs form the Jurassic Park franchise merged into one, deadly Dinosaur. Raptorex is larger than Velociraptor and shares the same characteristics as T-Rex, ie. short, two clawed front limbs.
Another Dinosaur which has since been discovered, is a towering Herbivore, named Sauroposeidon, which is about twice the size and weight of a Brachiosaurus. This Herbivore could very well be the largest Dinosaur of all time.
ther new DInosaurs discovered since JP3 include: Dracorex, Jeholopterus, Sinornithosaurus, Gigantoraptor and Microraptor.
Another factor which seems to be the consensus among Paleontologists is that Dinosaurs did in fact have feathers covering their bodies. So, we may very well see a very colorful T-Rex, covered in feathers in Jurassic Park 4 along with the Raptors and, if they decide to include it, Raptorex.
So what do you think of both the inclusion of Raptorex and the strong possibility that the Dinosaurs featured in Jurassic Park 4 will in fact sport a feathered look?
Laura Dern Talks Jurassic Park 4
JURASSIC PARK 4 MOVIE NEWS | FEB-25-2013 1:01 PM
Will Laura Dern reprise her role as Dr. Ellie Sattler in Jurassic Park 4?
Laura recently had a short interview with IFC last night and answered some burning questions us fans have been wondering ever since Jurassic Park 4 was officially announced as 'in production'. Below are excerpts of what Dern had to say about her potential involvement in the fourth Jurassic Park film:
"I know a little and it's been ever-changing. It's been evolving for many years as Steven has been considering it so that's all I can say right now," Dern told IFC on the Spirit Awards red carpet. "But very excited about the original 'Jurassic Park' coming out in 3D this summer. I'm going to see it soon, which will be very interesting."
Upon IFC asking about if she wants to return to star in Jurassic Park 4, Laura jokingly replied:
"Oh, I don't know. We'll see what they do. Right now we're just focused on our party of this summer,"
So, although no solid confirmation of her involvement in the fourth Jurassic Park, it's nice to know the interviews are starting to pop up with the original cast.
Laura Dern is currently busy promoting her new TV series, Enlightened. But let's hope she would consider returning to Jurassic Park, because as most JP fans have articulated, Jurassic Park wouldn't be Jurassic Park without at least some of the familiar faces from the original trilogy.
Stay tuned to JurassicPark4-Movie.com for more interviews and news on Jurassic Park 4. Hopefully next we'll hear from Sam Neill or Jeff Goldblum about their potential return to the Jurassic Park franchise!
So, how would you feel about Laura Dern returning for Jurassic Park 4? What other original cast would you like to see come back for the fourth installment in the JP franchise? Let us know by commenting below or by posting in the Jurassic Park 4 Online COmmunity Forum, or on Facebook and Twitter!
Jurassic Park 4 Production Details and Budget Rumored
JURASSIC PARK 4 MOVIE NEWS | FEB-24-2013 6:52 PM

With the recent rumors of Jurassic Park 4 being filmed in Louisiana still unconfirmed, this 'news' should also be taken with a grain of salt. The same person responsible for mentioning the first rumor of Jurassic Park 4's filming location is also claiming to have insider information about the film's production time and budget. Here's the direct quote the user made:
This just in: the next movie I might very well be working on will be 'Jurassic Park 4' to be shot in Baton Rouge at Celtic Studios (where we did 'Battleship' & 'Oblivion'. They say it will be a 9 month gig with a 200+ million dollar budget. Sounds good to me and it should be starting about the time 'Dawn of the Planet of the Apes' ends which is even better. "
A 200+ Million dollar budget is quite steep in comparison to the previous Jurassic Park film which only cost the studio a little over 90 Million dollars. If this rumor turns out to be true, we can expect a very large scale Jurassic Park come back with the fourth installment. However, we remain skeptical.
We have reached out to Universal Studios for any confirmation and/or clarification on the matter, but we have yet to receive any word back. We will of course update this article with any official leads we do receive and will be sure to inform you all regardless if this rumor turns out to be true or false. In the mean time, feel free to discuss this possibility of a 200+ Million dollar Jurassic Park 4 in the comments section below or in the Jurassic Park 4 Online Community Forum!

200 million? that seems quite exaggerated unless this is going to be the best jurassic park yet, but with no leaked script we can only hope this is going to be the most Kick-Ass jurassic park ever
POSTED: FEB-24-2013 11:12 PM
Wow! That is a pretty hefty price. The skeptic approach is probably the right one, but to actually make this they have to go all out. Fans really want something as close to the original as possible and they will have to do a hell of a lot to give us that. Mainly due to our praise of the first, but still. I hope this is pretty much true because i want this to really get rolling(even though they have a while to complete it)
