Today, Colin Trevorrow Tweeted a poster of Jurassic World for San Diego Comic Con. The poster will be released at San Diego Comic Con, and will be available in 'Limited Quantities'. The artist for the poster is Mark Englehart. The official Jurassic World twitter page posted more information on how to get these posters here.
The poster shows a Velociraptor crouching over a downed Jeep in the middle of the Jungle. Below it, can also be seen it's nest inside the Jeep. Behind the raptor, can be seen a more developed stretch, with construction occurring next to a mountain and a large lagoon. A monorail also is situated right through the ongoing construction. Also in the air, a helicopter can be seen transporting cargo, although what this is is unclear.
A staff member of our site will be attending the convention this year, and will cover anything Jurassic World related. If we manage to get a copy of one of the posters, a close up of the poster will be shown for you all. Stay tune for our continuing Jurassic World coverage at the San Diego Comic Con this weekend!
Then you went on to write JURASSIC WORLD. Was that something you sought out, or did it come to you?
Jaffa: That was different, we got a call from our agents saying Steven Spielberg was interested in meeting with us for JURASSIC WORLD. And I said, "I'm sorry, I didn't catch the name!" [Laughs] We were very excited. The first meeting with him was fantastic.
Silver: He's everything you imagine. He's so collaborative.
Jaffa: We felt a personal connection with him immediately, so collaboratively there was a quick meshing of thought and ideas. We were brought on pretty quickly.
Spielberg was thoroughly involved in the writing process?
Jaffa: Oh yeah, very much so. For the longest time, maybe a year, it was just the three of us.
Do you know how much of your vision remains at this stage? I believe Colin Trevorrow and his partner did a lot of work on it, if not started totally from scratch.
Jaffa: Another thing built on what we created, but we did not work with those guys creatively. We don't really know. We had one conversation with Colin. But we really believe in him, the cast is very cool. We're very excited about the experience with Steven and our contribution to it.
What are some of the cool set pieces you wrote that you hope make it in there?
Jaffa: [Laughs] We can't talk about that.
Is the old adage true, that screenwriters are paid well but treated like crap to make up for it?
Silver: [Laughs] It's kind of true.
Jaffa: I don't know about the "paid well" business. The thing about being a screenwriter is, sometimes you stick with it and it works out well, and other times you're replaced and it doesn't work out well for the project. But if your stuff is in it and audiences are moved by it, it's been worth it.
Silver: When it comes to JURASSIC WORLD we're extremely grateful to have worked the way we did.

A new picture allegedly from the set of Jurassic World has leaked out via instagram, first reported by the folks at JurassicWorld.org. It shows the apparent head of a Velociraptor, similar to these seen in the first movie. However, it appears to be greenish, which is a different hue from the raptors from the original Jurassic Park. It also appears to have a muzzle on it, but this may be the muzzle for transporting the animatronic.
Dinosaur fan convention returns to Phoenix August 2: Pop culture event features creator of “Jurassic Park” T.rex, panels, demos and dinosaur-themed exhibitors

Phoenix, Arizona is gonna be home to a Dinosaur convention this August! Check out the release below for more details:
PHOENIX, Ariz. (August 2, 2014) — From lively debates about blockbusters like “Jurassic Park” and “Godzilla,” to nostalgic jabs at the “Mighty Morphin Power Rangers” and “The Land Before Time,” Arizona’s original dinosaur fan convention Phoenix DinoCon devours movie and TV dinosaurs from 3 p.m. – 9 p.m. on Saturday, August 2 at the Phoenix Center for the Arts (1202 N 3rd St, Phoenix, AZ 85004).
Nationally unique within the fan event landscape in subject and scope, this 2nd annual dinosaur and kaiju party is suitable for ages 12 and above, but geared toward adults with an everlasting love for dinos. Phoenix DinoCon gives fans a chance to interact with pop culture experts, learn reptilian crafts, purchase locally-produced dinosaur art and even vote a legendary pop culture icon into the Bookmans and Phoenix DinoCon Hall of Distinguished Dinosaurs.
The convention’s extensive “Jurassic Park” and “Jurassic World” related programming provides a first-hand account of the original movie’s T.rex — from concept to life-sized, working model — by Sedona resident, sculptor and special effects artist Michael Trcic in the Phoenix DinoCon Tyrannosaurus Theater.
In addition to panels focused on “Godzilla” and “Pacific Rim,” Phoenix Dinocon explores appearances of dinosaurs in steampunk and tabletop games. Geologist Melanie Dolberg pits Hollywood dinosaurs against their scientific counterparts and FilmBar’s Andrea Beesley heads a dinosaur-themed spin-off of her annual Phoenix Comicon signature event, the first-ever Phoenix Ultimate Geek Smackdown: Turbo Dinosaur Edition.
New this year to Phoenix DinoCon is the Diplodocus Demo Den, where fans gain hands-on drawing and crafting experiences like a special make-and-take opportunity: DIY mini-notebooks featuring the hunks of the “Jurassic Park” franchise, depicted in Tiger Beat likenesses.
A Velociraptor Vendor Hall roars through the day with dinosaur-inspired local artists, crafters and business owners. Returning this year are Jon Garza and Damien Hernandez, who make dream dinosaur scenarios a reality on location with pencil and watercolor (think Ron Swansonasaurus or your pet Chihuahuas as dueling sauropods.)
For more information on the 2nd annual Phoenix DinoCon, please visit phxdinocon.com.
Phoenix Dinocon, Arizona’s original pop culture dinosaur convention, is organized by a group of Phoenix, Ariz. based dinosaur enthusiasts who provide fans, artists, crafters and local businesses an outlet to celebrate dinosaur and kaiju pop culture. Since 2013, Phoenix DinoCon champions opportunities for local artists, supports as many locally owned businesses as possible, and relishes the thrill of dinosaur-related movies, TV and literature. Phoenix DinoCon is the only event of its intensity in the nation, combining panels, demos and vendors laser-focused on pop culture dinosaurs, financially independent from museum or paleontology organizations. Partners for the 2014 Phoenix DinoCon event include Downtown Phoenix Inc., Roosevelt Row CDC, Bookmans and FilmBar. For more information on Phoenix DinoCon, please email email@example.com or visit phxdinocon.com.

Over at MoviesWithButter they recently talked with Brian Tee (Hamada) of Jurassic World!
“I get to be another badass,” Tee said. “I get to play with dinosaurs here and there. I think Jurassic World is going to be bigger, badder, better than any other Jurassic Park that you’ve seen.”
I guessed that Tee might be playing a scientist, but he corrected me. “I’m Hamada. I’m the head of security at Jurassic World. Just in case something happens, because what could go wrong? There are many giant dinosaurs. They’re probably really tame in their own environment and stuff like that, so I’m just a precaution, that’s all.”
Well, at least this time the Jurassic team has thought ahead to security. They’ve even given Hamada a cool uniform. “Oh, they’re badass. Come on, it’s Jurassic World. They’re gonna be badass. You can’t have a Jurassic World and not have cool security.”
Colin Trevorrow directs Jurassic World, and Tee described his style on the set. Tee said we can expect a measured style of filming, with down and dirty work for the actors. “For what we shot, it was I think the best of both worlds. It was definitely very measured, but when you’re in the world itself, you’ve got to represent that particular aesthetic. So he was definitely in the trenches with us. We’re rolling through mud and dirt and trees and bushes and swamp and all this other stuff, and he was in there getting dirty. Absolutely.”
