The 15 greatest moments from the Jurassic saga!

To mark the release of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom on June 6th and celebrate 25 years of the epic dinosaur saga, we count down the series’ most ROARSOME moments…


15. A FIERY END?

From Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom (2018)

Roaring into ODEON cinemas on 6 June, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom sees Bryce Dallas Howard’s Claire (now an activist) returning with Chris Pratt’s raptor-whisperer Owen to Isla Nublar after a volcanic eruption threatens the surviving dinosaurs there.

The odds of an event-free rescue mission? Slim to none, of course.  Adventure, twists, action, sense of humour and incredible new dinosaurs...That's why for us just the trailer from this last chapter can enter in our top list!


14. OWEN RIDES THE RAPTORS

From Jurassic World (2015)

For sheer exhilaration, this scene can’t be beat. It sees an astride-a-motorbike Owen on a recon mission with his beloved raptors (villains in the first three movies, but now the lesser of many evils).


13. COOKING UP SUSPENSE

From Jurassic Park (1993)

In one of the most tense sequences in the entire Jurassic Park saga, youngsters Tim (Joseph Mazzello) and Lex (Ariana Richards) are hunted by two snarling raptors in the visitor centre’s industrial kitchen. Those tapping claws still haunt our dreams!


12. DEEP RISING

From Jurassic Park III (2001)

Having already snacked on Paul and Amanda Kirby’s chartered plane, Jurassic Park III’s big villain, the Spinosaurus, is clearly ready for his main course as he chomps through a boat carrying our weary heroes. It’s a watery attack that wouldn’t look out of place in the Jaws movies!

11. FRILLED TO SEE YOU

From Jurassic Park (1993)

On his way to hand over the fertilised dinosaur embryos he stole from Jurassic Park’s lab, computer expert Dennis Nedry (Wayne Knight) encounters a Dilophosaurus, a predator famous for its venom attack.  Much like Dennis, this twittering beast seems harmless. Much like Dennis, it definitely isn’t!

10.  THE PARK REVEAL

From Jurassic World (2015)

When young Gray (Ty Simpkins) throws open the shutters in his Jurassic World hotel room to reveal the park in all its glory, he’s not the only one grinning from ear to ear – we are too. After a 14-year break, it’s good to be back.

9. "CLEVER GIRL"

From Jurassic Park (1993)

Spoken by Jurassic Park’s seasoned game warden Robert Muldoon (Bob Peck) when he realises he’s been outwitted by a female raptor and pal. It’s arguably the most quoted line of the entire series, and the last thing Muldoon ever says...

8. "MOMMY'S VERY ANGRY!"

From The Lost World: Jurassic Park (1997)

Another often quoted line, this time delivered by the indomitable Dr. Ian Malcolm (Jeff Goldblum). He’s referring to the furious female T-Rex whose injured baby Sarah Harding (Julianne Moore) and Nick Van Owen (Vince Vaughn) are foolishly attempting to treat.


7. AVIARY ATTACK!

From Jurassic Park III (2001)

“Oh my god, it’s a birdcage,” realises Alan Grant (Sam Neill) a fraction too late, as a massive (and we mean massive) Pteranodon appears out of the gloom in front of horrified 12-year-old, Eric Kirby (Trevor Morgan). Making things even creepier, it’s walking. Shudder!

 

6. LIFE FINDS A WAY

From Jurassic Park (1993)

A meditation on the perils of playing god as much as a monster movie, Jurassic Park asks the tough questions. Or rather Ian Malcolm does. The charismatic chaotician is vehemently against InGen’s meddling, convinced, that no matter how many precautions John Hammond’s bioengineering company take, life will not be contained. And you know what? He’s absolutely right.

5. RAPTORS IN THE LONG GRASS

From The Lost World: Jurassic Park (1997)

Less is often more when it comes to creature features, and so it proves here. Unleashed in the long grass, the raptors – almost unseen except for their long tails – pick their human victims off one by one. It’s the stuff of nightmares (and then some).

4. BATTLE TO THE DEATH

From Jurassic World (2015)

Jurassic World’s epic final act sees a three-way throw-down between the Indominus rex, the T-Rex and Blue (Owen’s favourite raptor). But, in the monster of all twists, it’s the Mosasaurus that has the last word – jaw-dropping so. Chomp!


3. NOT-SO-GOOD VIBRATIONS

From Jurassic Park (1993)

Our first glimpse at the T-Rex is director Steven Spielberg at his finest. As the beast approaches, the glasses of water on the car dashboard start to judder. Then we see that the goat is gone... One of the best example of how to create thrills with simple yet frightening scenes. 

 


2. "WHAT IS THAT THING?"

From Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom (2018)

In addition to rescuing stricken dinosaurs and dodging boiling lava, Fallen Kingdom sees Claire, Owen and kids (there are always kids) uncovering a conspiracy that threatens the entire planet, cue Claire’s ominous question... “What is that thing?”  You can find out on 6th June when the film stomps into ODEON cinemas, but for now trust us when we say that his new dinosaur deserves the second position in the list!

 


1. WELCOME TO JURASSIC PARK

From Jurassic Park (1993)

Pulling the shades from his eyes, Alan Grant stares agog at the Brachiosaurus walking in front of him, in what is surely one of cinema’s greatest ever scenes. “Welcome to Jurassic Park,” smiles park creator John Hammond. Twenty-five years after Jurassic Park was first unleashed in cinemas, this scene still gives us goosebumps and symbolically signs the beginning of an incredible saga...


Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom roars in cinemas on June 6th. Don't miss your chance to witness some other greatest moments from an adventure started 65 million years ago...
