Video: Modern visual effects are easy to spot when they’re creating something you know doesn’t actually exist in real life. Velociraptors and T-rexes are obviously the work of talented visual effects artists, but in Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, even the island under the imaginary theme park was a digital creation, brought to life on a nearly deserted patch of ocean.

With the first Jurassic Park, we were all content to just stare in awe at what appeared to be living, breathing dinosaurs onscreen. But four sequels later, we now want to do more than just look at dinosaurs, we want to play with them too. Science has yet to deliver the goods, so Mattel has stepped up to bring dinosaurs back from extinction with its new Alpha Training Blue interactive velociraptor toy.
If you're a longtime fan of the franchise, 2018 is the perfect year for another Jurassic movie because it also happens to be the 25th anniversary of the original Steven Spielberg film. The downside? If you can remember being wowed by the first Jurassic Park when you saw it in the theatre as a kid, it means there's now an adult version of you who's too big to fully enjoy this Jurassic Park tribute from Power Wheels. That doesn't mean we didn't try.
The blockbuster sequel to the blockbuster Jurassic Park reboot is currently grossing a zillion dollars, but did you notice how everyone in the movie was an imbecile? Their actions may be confusing, but don't worry - my patented Spoiler FAQ has all the answers to the movie I have retitled Jurassic World: Idiot Buffet.
A lot of fans walk out of superhero movies wishing they were Wonder Woman or Iron Man, but does the same thing happen with the dinosaurs in Jurassic Park or Jurassic World? Dino cosplay is apparently live, well, and not at all concerned with anatomical accuracy, as these new inflatable thunder lizard costumes reveal.
In the most inevitable convergence, Jeff Goldblum has now met his Sexy Ian Malcolm Funko Pop. And his reaction is, well... it involves some stroking.
The plots in most films inevitably end up being driven by the bad decisions people make. But Universal's Jurassic Park franchise has always been a little difficult to buy into, because nobody seems to be capable of understanding how profoundly dumb an idea it would be to bring dinosaurs back from extinction.
Jurassic Park didn't exactly tone down its violence and make its dino-stars seem like friendly petting zoo fodder, but that didn't stop a part of me from fantasizing about one day riding a velociraptor like a mighty stallion. A fantasy that, thanks to Fisher-Price, can now be a reality for kids with this Power Wheels Dino Racer.
This week, we'll get our first meaty look at the follow-up to Jurassic World (now with exactly 400 per cent more Jeff Goldblum). But before that, we're getting early details on just what Fallen Kingdom is about... and it apparently revolves around the people behind Jurassic World being dumb enough to build a park on top of an active volcano.
