Boards that ComingSoon.Net
had an interview with the full-motion dinosaurs creator, Dennis

Park 4 or the recently announced Star Wars live action series?
Muren: I wouldn't think so. I'm kind of dino'ed and Star Warsed out.
[George Lucas] just told me for the first time like three weeks ago
that he's going to do this. I thought now he's finally going to make
his own little home movies that he's always wanted to make, his little
experimental films. "I do want to do those, but I also have this Star
Wars TV thing."
Times look grimmer
and grimer for a Jurassic Park IV to be made. You can read the

In the magazine Spielberg discusses his love of Sci-Fi, his past films
and his current film that will open June 29th, War
of the Worlds, Spielberg had this to say about directing films:
I like directing above all else are movies about history," he says.
"Second most fun is science fiction. With sci-fi, the imagination
is the storyteller, and as we all know, the imagination is infinite.

Well, we've finally done it. We've completed the site since we launched
in 2003 (Better late than never!). The Character
Profiles section is online, finally. Also today I revised the site
to work better with lower resolutions. For now though sit back, and
enjoy our work. We have a few new features in mind for the future and
they are summaries of the novels and a Novel Database that we're quickly
working on to finish, how to make your Jurassic Park Toys look more
movie canon, video game information for all the JP games, a cutscenes
list for the movies, information about the Jurassic Park Comic Book
series, plus much more. Be sure to post on our Message
Boards, which also got a bit of a make over too, and let us know
what new and exciting features you want to see on this great site!

News has been slow as of late, thankfully there's a new study in Paleontology
right now. Remember the Tyrannosaurus that had the fossilized soft tissue
inside of it's bones? Well it's back in the spotlight again, it was
so well preserved it was also caught in the act of laying eggs as there
is medullary bone inside one of it's calcium layers. Medullary bone
is found in birds when they're ready to lay their eggs and is only present
then. This proves dinosaurs are indeed very closely related to birds.
