jurassic world where dinosaurs come to life

The Bearded Trio want to celebrate the release of "Jurassic World" on June 12th by offering one lucky winner a copy of this fantastic book based on the movie.  The book is called "Where Dinosaurs Come To Life."  It's no ordinary book though.  With the aid of your smart phone or tablet you can bring the dinosaurs to life in front of your eyes.  Using augmented reality you point your device at certain pages in the book and bingo!  Dino DNA in your living room.

Watch as a T-Rex walks around your floor.  You can make it roar and control where it walks to.  Other dinosaurs are controllable including the all new Indominus Rex and the Chris Pratt friendly, Velociraptor.

All you have to do to enter and this competition is open worldwide so everyone has a chance is tweet the following:

Here's a video showing the book in action.



Here's some photos I took of my very own dinosaurs.

Newport in South Wales is set to play host to a new film and comic convention this summer.

GeekedFest, which will be hosted at the Newport Leisure Centre on August 8 and 9, is the first of what organisers hope will become an annual event. GeekedFest Ltd was founded by Chris Muscat and Shane Richard Jordan who are from Newport and are passionate about their city.

They want to provide a comic convention that is accessible to families and newcomers and will offer a drooling experience for the hardcore nerds, gamers, geeks of all ages, creeds and guilds.

The event will have a roster full of special guests, including Game of Thrones actors, current and former WWE wrestling stars and authors of classics such as the Return of the Jedi and the Goonies. As well as autographs and picture opportunities there will also be exhibitions showcasing Dr Who props, Star Wars memorabilia and film characters.

GeekedFest will be packed full with market stalls and exhibitors selling everything from costume wear, comics, figurines, unique artwork, retro games, autographs, film memorabilia, and rare confectionery. There will be a dedicated Cosplay area and gaming room with competitions and shows throughout both days.

Co-founder of Geekedfest Chris Muscat said “Geekedfest started with a passion for films and comics and a desire to provide Newport, our city, with something everyone can enjoy. The city is undergoing a major redevelopment and as part of that we wanted to offer an annual event Newport can be proud of.”

“Our aim is to offer our guests an experience they will enjoy and at the same time support our local businesses and charities. We are supporting the Follow Your Dreams, St Davids Foundation Hospice Care and Fibroduck charities to raise awareness and funds for their great causes, with exhibitions dedicated to them on both days.”

“Close Encounters of The Worst Kind"

A Close Encounters of the Third Kind parody from Cracked #150 1978 by John Severin.  Unlike the movie the story in the parody is a bit weak but the artwork is impressive.

It sure looks like Indy-week, these days. A couple of days ago Kingdom of the Crystal Skull had it's birthday, tomorrow The last Crusade, and today we can celebrate Indiana Jones and the temple of Doom's 31st Birthday.


Although not receiving one itself, the film was responsible for the PG-13 rating, because of a couple of rather intense scenes.


And it was the only film in the series, where both Spielberg and Lucas, a.k.a. the director and the man who came up with the character in the first place made a (very tiny) cameo appearance as a couple of missionaries.

By having named two of the bearded ones, we are not complete yet, because in the trio there are three bearded guys, and the third one was, once more, responsible for the music.
Enclosed a video I found where a Brass Band plays the music from Temple of Doom, and I must say, I think it sounds great.


And for those who forgot, here's the opening of the film:


Happy Birthday Indy, Anything Goes.

Chris Pratt, who plays Owen Grady in the highly anticipated Jurassic World, has seen the final product and he's taken to his official Facebook page to reassure everyone that it will meet (or exceed) expectations. He also offers some sage advice to media weary fans.

About to embark on a global press blitz for ‪#‎JurassicWorld‬. Saw it last night and I ABSOLUTELY LOVED IT!!
This is a motion picture so beautifully executed by Colin Trevorrow and the people at Universal it left me utterly speechless. It's a huge project in every aspect, a massive commercial undertaking that should be witnessed in IMAX theatre if possible based simply on the magnitude of its technological accomplishment. The story is fantastic, the characters compelling, the action is earned and truly unprecedented. Grab your kids, family, friends, girlfriends, boyfriends, grandparents, mailmen, etc., get some popcorn and create a memory y'all will cherish forever.
NOW....
Needless to say you will be seeing A LOT of me in the press in the next few weeks as I circle the globe promoting the movie in different markets around the world. With social media the way it is and click bait marketing online you will have a front row seat to all of the promotional action if you so chose. There will be a lot. Dare I say too much if you actually take the time to watch it all!? I suggest you don't. But that's up to you.
If it gets old or you grow weary of my face just remember, you could always do what I did while waiting for the original Jurassic Park to open, go outside and play with imaginary dinosaurs! They are the best and they are free!!! And after your children, little brothers, little sisters, nephews, grandchildren, weird neighbor kids, and others, etc. finish seeing our movie that's what they will be doing anyways so practice now! Take science, add a dash of imagination, 40 thousand tons of suspense and you get an experience that defines a generation!
#JURASSICWORLD
Well. See you in the press! Love you.
-Chris
PS. I write this crap. Not a publicist or the studio. Me. So it definitely has my seal of approval.

Hey, sounds good to me! I'll take Chris at his word.

He's also issued a preemptive apology - because you can never be too safe! You've got to cover all your bases nowadays.

I want to make a heartfelt apology for whatever it is I end up accidentally saying during the forthcoming ‪#‎JurassicWorld‬ press tour. I hope you understand it was never my intention to offend anyone and I am truly sorry. I swear. I'm the nicest guy in the world. And I fully regret what I (accidentally will have) said in (the upcoming foreign and domestic) interview(s). 
I am not in the business of making excuses. I am just dumb. Plain and simple. I try. I REALLY try! When I do (potentially) commit the offensive act for which I am now (pre) apologizing you must understand I (will likely have been) tired and exhausted when I (potentially) said that thing I (will have had) said that (will have had) crossed the line. Those rooms can get stuffy and the hardworking crews putting these junkets together need some entertainment! (Likely) that is who I was trying to crack up when I (will have had) made that tasteless and unprofessional comment. Trust me. I know you can't say that anymore. In fact in my opinion it was never right to say the thing I definitely don't want to but probably will have said. To those I (will have) offended please understand how truly sorry I already am. I am fully aware that the subject matter of my imminent forthcoming mistake, a blunder (possibly to be) dubbed "JurassicGate" is (most likely) in no way a laughing matter. To those I (will likely have had) offended rest assured I will do everything in my power to make sure this doesn't happen (again).

Jurassic World roars into theaters June 12.

Baby animals are so cute! Sure they are... But then some grow up.... And want to eat you.

Witness the birth of Indominus Rex.



That is one malevolent looking baby. Will Owen Grady and his squad of raptors will be up to the task of putting I. rex in its place? One can only hope.



Jurassic World opens June 12.

These days, not a day goes by without a bit of news on (the new) Star Wars.

So it's not strange to present a couple of clips from various TV-episodes over the past 30 years that featured references to adventures and characters from our favorite Galaxy far, far away.

So, buckle up.

Ronny.

John Williams Talks To Bruce Handy For Vanity Fair

Bruce Handy is on a role at the moment over at Vanity Fair as he now interviews the legend that is John Williams.  Williams of course we know to be composing the music for Star Wars: The Force Awakens and the composer discusses about the whole assignment.  He admitted that working with J.J. Abrams is very much a similar process to working with George Lucas:

It’s actually very similar. My meetings with George had to do with spotting the film, selecting areas in which music would be played, and pretty much we agreed on all that. He always left me free to write the music. And J.J.’s done the same thing. We’ve had a few preliminary meetings, and I’ve played him some music at the piano, which he seemed to like very much. His latest instruction to me was, “Just do your thing.” Which is giving me a good sense of freedom, a good free swing at the ball. I don’t know how much you know of him, but he is a delightful person. Enormously bright. I’ve been very impressed with him in meetings with a great variety of people. His generalship is assured and warm and inviting and inclusive. If I can say it, he’s a fabulous young man who’s future is so brilliant and so promising. I don’t know how old he is, but he’s a young man to me. [Abrams is 48; Williams is 83.] He’s enormously impressive.

John Williams unsurprisingly tells us that The Force Awakens will include some of the original themes in The Force Awakens.  Williams tells us:

There are some scenes where we do make reference to earlier thematic pieces. We haven’t done it yet, but we’re planning to do it. It’s something that I think will seem very natural and right in the moments for which we’ve chosen to do these kinds of quotes. There aren’t many of them, but there are a few that I think are important and will seem very much a part of the fabric of the piece in a positive and constructive way
