What did a Dinosaur sound like? We submit exhibit A, another well known Archosaur being very vocal. Imagine this magnified 20 times for a T Rex! O.O

Thanks to Paleontologist Jason Bourke for bringing it to our attention.

Some footage from the 5min preview for FF9....or...10....whichever Fast and Furious movie is out, has finally been officially released.

The footage from what we read on Collider is suppose to take place during the Cretaceous period 65mya. This....is alot to process considering the dinosaurs featured are from a wide range of timelines, the Iguanadon for example...is from the Jurassic Period.

That said the biggest plot point is the intro of a new big bad dinosaur monster in the form of Giganatosaurus seen here facing off a T-Rex. Having read how this conflict goes...it seems to be channeling 50 shades of JP3 so it will be interesting to see how this new generation of JW fans will react to it.

Jurassic World Dominion is due out next year.

The VELOCICOASTER!!!!!

Universal Parks News Today did some amazing coverage of the line cue preview for the new VelociCoaster due to open this summer at Universal Orlando. Inside you can see how statues of the Raptor Pack have been set up, locker layouts for riders before they get on the coaster, even animatronic heads of Raptors restrained before they break free during the duration of the rides in que story line.

Along with this is additional articles showing a VelociCoaster merch pop up shop inside the Dsicovery Center, which also includes a lifesized statue of Blue. This comes after a flurry of construction wrap up for the Jurassic Themed Isle of Adventure. We are happy so far to see the Discovery Center largely preserved, including the two skeletal mounts that replicate the classical Discover Center from the first film Jurassic Park and rumor has it are the actual skeletons used for the set on the movie. Along with this is the return of Orlando's Roberta Rex photo op with the Jurassic Explorer, and the refurbish of their surviving Jurassic Park Water Ride.

As a group of friends who long miss our Jurassic Park Ride here in Hollywood, may Orlando's ride forever reign.

Here's the link to the coverage, and let us know if your eager to ride the VelociCoaster this year at Universal Orlando!

We are DELIGHTED to announce the launch of our first paid-for digital exhibition package, with a special virtual experience of our critically acclaimed show Ray Harryhausen: Titan of Cinema !

Happy Monster March!

This March the rematch of the century is upon us, Godzilla verses King Kong! To celebrate our President Josh did this throw back piece for a more classical take on the clash of titans. This piece is a "What If" piece which reimagines Kong and Godzilla as classical stop motion animation characters as seen in the original 1933 classic King Kong as envisioned by Willis O'Brien.

We hope you enjoy this classical take as we get ourselves ready for Godzilla vs Kong to be released this month!

This month we get Godzilla verses Kong. A matchup we havent seen really since the first Toho film in 1962. As a fun way to commemorate the film I did a fun "What IF?" Some people know Godzilla was inspired by the original King Kong film in the 1930's, and when Godzilla was first envisioned it was originally meant to be a stop motion creature. Others also cite Harryhausen's "Beast from 20,000 Fathoms" as being the fore father of Godzilla, having come out before Godzilla in 1953 and introduced the concept of a radioactive monster coming out of the sea.

In this "What If", I explored a Willis O'Brien version of Godzilla vs Kong where Toho might have approached Willis to do the project. The Kong is the version from the original RKO film. Godzilla is inspired from the Stegosaur and Tyrannosaur puppets designed for his films. Godzilla's trademark plates, fangs, and even his ears are included in this design for this fun take on the match between two Titans. Here's to a month filled with Monsters.

Truly a sad day.

Thank you for everything Cinefex, you inspired countless artists to pursue the act of creation.

CINEFEX
1980-2021

A year ago this month, Cinefex celebrated its 40th anniversary.

Historically, it was a publishing landmark few magazines achieve, and we were immensely proud of our accomplishment and grateful to those whose support and dedication helped us to achieve it.

Then the world upended.

Within weeks, the coronavirus pandemic swept across the planet, deadly and implacable; and to this date, its inexorable march through countries, communities and families remains largely unchecked.

The human toll has been devastating, but so, too, the toll upon businesses, countless numbers of which shut down due to economic necessity or government mandate.

More than 100,000 of those businesses, in the U.S. alone, will never reopen.

We are deeply sad to announce that Cinefex will be among them.

The pandemic deprived us of subject matter, retail outlets, and, most critically, advertisers, many of whom, like us, struggled to remain afloat in a climate of intense turmoil and uncertainty.

We did our best to weather the storm, but ultimately the storm prevailed.

We have just shipped the final issue of a magazine that has documented and celebrated one of the most vibrant and exciting art forms in entertainment history. It has been our great honor and privilege to do so.

We bid you a fond farewell.
