Jurassic World Trailer

Jurassic World

This is the new trailer for the new Jurassic World film.

It’s over twenty years since the release of the original Jurassic Park, which apart from making me feel old, it’s interesting to note how far CGI technologies have come. CGI back then was very innovative, but now most films have a CGI element to them. I also am seeing how many film makers are now moving away from CGI for some effects and going back to models and live action.

In the original Jurassic Park, there were only fifteen minutes of actual dinosaur footage in the film: nine minutes were Stan Winston’s animatronics (live models), six minutes of it is ILM’s CGI.

Okay, so it’s an advert for a film, but still….

James Bond’s Casino Royale introduction done in Lego…

Must have taken a lot of time to put together.

One thing that does confuse me now and again or makes me smile, are the search terms that people use, one recent one was:

was simon pegg in 4 weddings and a funaral

My site mainly came up as I had written about Four Weddings and Funeral in my cinematic advent calendar and at the same time there was a record of a tweet I had sent.

The combination meant that the search query, was simon pegg in 4 weddings and a funaral, put my website near the top of the listings on the search engines.

Well in a final moment of clarity, just to note, Simon Pegg was not in Four Weddings and a Funeral, he was considered for the part of Rufus, which eventually went to Rowan Atkinson.
