Back to Isla Nublar
Earlier today, Jurassic World director Colin Trevorrow posted a mysterious Tweet showing what looks like the old, weathered “East Dock” sign Dennis Nedry knocked down in the first Jurassic Park film minutes before having his unfortunate encounter with a venom-spitting Dilophosaurus.
How this relates to the plot of Jurassic World is unclear, but speculation is always fun.
Remember in 1993 when Jurassic Park was like…the end all, be all of special effects?
not gonna lie that still looks intimately real
I’m still somewhat convinced that someone sold their soul to create the special effects in Jurassic Park because that shit is over 20 years old and it still really, really holds up, better than the stuff in a lot of current movies, even.
Fucking witchcraft, man.
The regular, orange sky version will be a San Diego Comic Con exclusive with a run of 500. Those able to attend Comic Con this year and hope to snag one of the posters are encouraged by Universal to text JURASSIC to 834567 to receive updates on how and where to find them.
The blue sky variant will be a limited edition run of only 100, and will be distributed online in a manner yet to be announced. I highly recommend following Universal Pictures, Legendary Entertainment, and the official Jurassic Park pages on all the popular social media sites if you hope to be among the lucky few who score this item.
In his blog post, Englert discusses the process of working together with Universal and director Colin Trevorrow to fine-tune the design, and specific tweaks they suggested. This is the real deal then: an official look at the tone and imagery of Jurassic World.
The artwork addresses both the ruined, old park of the original Jurassic movie, while teasing the rise of the new Jurassic World attraction in the background: Part of a monorail track is visible and buildings — possibly the new visitor center and a hotel — are under construction as dinosaurs are flown in by helicopter. Taken at face value, this confirms that remnants of Hammond’s park still exist on Isla Nublar along with the new attractions, and that wild dinosaurs (including those not mentioned on the tour brochure that leaked last week) may still thrive on a section of the island away from the tourists.

Dr. Alan Grant: But that’s not what I’m gonna do.

The greatest proposal I’ve ever laid my eyes on.
OH MY GOOD LORD. THIS IS THE BEST THING EVER *TEARS*
Your scientists were so preoccupied with whether or not they could that they didn’t stop to think if they should.
10 years later…
I like to imagine in the film!verse, Alan and Tim keep in touch, especially after the events of Isla Sorna in 2001. Tim is attending university, goes to Alan’s lectures, and Alan may even take him on a few of his digs.
i was expecting the ‘holy fucking shit, fucking dinosaurs’ but this was just
"Well, the world has changed so radically, and we’re all running to catch up. I don’t want to jump to any conclusions, but look: Dinosaurs and man, two species separated by sixty-five million years of evolution have just been suddenly thrown back into the mix together. How can we possibly have the slightest idea what to expect?"
