Jurassic Park (1993)
God creates dinosaurs. God destroys dinosaurs. God creates man. Man destroys God. Man creates dinosaurs.

"You know the first attraction I built when I came down from Scotland… was a flea circus. Petticoat Lane. Really… quite wonderful. We had, uh… a wee trapeze, a merry-go… carousel. And a see-saw. They all moved, motorized, of course, but people would say they could see the fleas. "No, I can see the fleas. Mummy, can’t you see the fleas?" Clown fleas, highwire fleas and fleas on parade. But with this place… I wanted to give them something that wasn’t an illusion. Something that was real. Something they could see, and touch. An aim not devoid of merit.”

British actor and film director Richard Attenborough has died at the age of 90.

He died at lunchtime on Sunday, his son told BBC News.

Lord Attenborough was one of Britain’s leading actors, before becoming a highly successful director.

In a career that spanned six decades, he appeared in films including Brighton Rock, World War Two prisoner of war thriller The Great Escape and later in dinosaur blockbuster Jurassic Park.

As a director he was perhaps best known for Gandhi, which won two Oscars.

Lord Attenborough had been in a nursing home with his wife for a number of years, BBC arts editor Will Gompertz said.

He had also been in a wheelchair since falling down stairs 6 years ago, our correspondent added.

His family is expected to make a full statement tomorrow.

RIP Richard Attenborough.

"Welcome to Jurassic Park."

Jurassic Park: The ReturnSubmitted by Jack De La Mare
This is a Jurassic Park fan film that fills the gap between the first trilogy of films (1993-2001) and the upcoming Jurassic World (2015). We are taking inspiration from the original Michael Crichton novels and developing a story that not only excites fans of the franchise, but also will excite the general audience. This will be a standalone Jurassic Park movie that can fit on your shelf right next to the current films.
Before we make the feature film - which is currently being written, we are heading to Oahu, Hawaii to film a short film to help promote the feature but also show what we as a team can make. We want to prove that we are the right people for a Jurassic Park fan film.
Our Visual Effects Supervisor, Sarah A. Char (Fast & Furious, I Am Number Four) will be bringing us a team of talented animators who will create and animate realistic dinosaurs in realistic surroundings. Realistic visual effects are something so important for a film like this so we only will take the best of the best.
When I was 14, my friends and I made a Jurassic Park fan film called Prime Survival. Now that we have all developed as filmmakers and come a long way since then, we want to finish what we started, as it were. I want to make a film that holds up alongside the originals and that people can be excited for!
Please help us make this become a reality!

godzillareturn2014 asked,

What kind of dinosaurs you would like to see in Jurassic World? For me, I want to see an Allosaurus.

I would like to see the Carnotaurus that was in The Lost World book. It was a neat little passage that I enjoyed reading.

Carnotaurus is encountered in The Lost World. They have almost perfect chameleon-like camouflage, able to replicate even patterns and shadows on their skin. A perfect example in the novel as to how little the scientist really know about the creatures, as they are perfect ambush predators, but are too slow to actually give chase to prey that might become alerted to their presence. They are active mostly at night. Near the beginning of the second novel, a Carnotaurus kills Dr. Levine’s guide, Diego, by ambushing him, and dragging him into some nearby ferns, where it promptly kills him.

Later on, a pair of Carnotaurus come near an abandoned shed at the worker village (where it serves as part of their territory), where LevineArbyKelly,ThorneSarah Harding, and Ian Malcolm are all hiding. Thorne was first to be aware of their presence, hearing them breathe when he was about to leave the shed. When Levine turns on the lights to the building the rest were hiding in, the Carnotaurus were briefly exposed by the light before camouflaging again. They then approach Thorne at the shed, but are too large to enter. However, Sarah and Levine scare them off with flashlights. With their cover blown, the dinosaurs abandon their attack and are not seen again. As day breaks, other dinosaurs appear in the Carnotaurus territory again, know the Carnotaurus cannot hide in daylight. Source

AND they have even tinier arms/hands than a trex. How cute :3

I think that the nearly confirmed rumours of the Dino/cuttlefish hybrid might lead to something like this

i think so too ^.^
