This year will mark the 25th anniversary of Steven Spielberg’s Jurassic Park. It’s only appropriate, then, that we get more late-night parodies of it.
Welcome back to Toy Aisle, io9's regular look at the shiny new collectibles tempting our wallets at the moment. This week, Playmobil’s amazing Ghostbusters toys get even better, there’s even more from the Lego wizarding world, and we covet a giant Jurassic Park dino, as we’re wont to do. Check it out!
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.
After a few years of running around outside catching wild Pokémon, fans will soon have the opportunity to do the same with dinosaurs.
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…
Pop culture is filled with iconic characters, but how many can you identify just from their eyes? It’s a question posted by painter Jason Edmiston in his latest gallery exhibit, Eyes Without a Face 2.
It’s the sick Triceratops from Jurassic Park, of course!
Funko, you’ve outdone yourselves this time.
The most important thing to happen in the world of cinema in 2018 will be the 25th anniversary of the original Jurassic Park, which will be celebrated with a mountain of movie-related merchandise including this tiny drivable replica of the fictional park’s Jeeps from Fisher-Price. Ages five and up? Sounds like a…
There are a lot of amazing new movies coming in 2018, but there’s also a long list of classic, iconic films that will be celebrating significant anniversaries this year. Here are the biggest science fiction, fantasy, and genre movie milestones happening in 2018. (You should probably be prepared to feel old.)
You can’t have a Jurassic movie without humans fighting dinosaurs. But, in Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, the dinosaurs aren’t the only disaster they’re up against. There’s also a giant ass volcano.
According to one of the filmmakers, the next Jurassic World movie is going to feature more dinosaurs than you’ve ever seen before. So it’s a good thing it’s going to be bringing back giant lizard expert Ian Malcolm, too.
Aww, Velociraptors are adorable! So what if they were the scariest creatures in Jurassic Park—making us sympathize with a T-Rex because, hey, at least it had a fighting chance against those awful things? Here, in the first (very brief) look at Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, we’ve got the return of Chris Pratt: The…
If you frequent pop culture websites like ours, you see a lot of pop culture art. And at some point, it may all blend together. But one artist does something that’s so different, so out of the box, once you see it, you never forget it. That artist is Andrew DeGraff.
We’re inching closer and closer to the release of Thor: Ragnarok, where we’ll be treated to hours of Chris Hemsworth, Cate Blanchett, and the eternally delightful Jeff Goldblum—who even in smaller doses, like this adorable 10-second synopsis of his upcoming film, is still the grandest of masters.
Welcome back to Toy Aisle, io9's gathering of the most wonderful, and often most ludicrous, merchandise we’ve seen on the web this week. This time, we’ve got our best look yet at the new anime Godzilla, some very funky Star Wars and Star Trek coasters, and yes, a rather large T-Rex.
The origin of flight remains a perplexing topic in the scientific community, as tends to be the case with any origin story. Flight probably evolved multiple times in different groups. Insects probably started flying over 300 million years ago, and pterosaurs, large flying reptiles, evolved 230 million years ago. Add…
Dr. George Church is a real-life Dr. Frankenstein. The inventor of CRISPR and one of the minds behind the Human Genome Project is no longer content just reading and editing DNA—now he wants to make new life. In Ben Mezrich’s latest book, Wooly: The True Story of the Quest to Revive One of History’s Most Iconic Extinct…
Millions of years ago, unlucky animals settled in the sticky resin of trees, only to be trapped and preserved until we humans found them. Fossils of the distant future, however, will probably be a whole lot weirder than bugs in tree sap.
