This May, film fans are invited to meet one of the stars of Jurassic World Dominion: a never- before-seen life-size Giganotosaurus.
With the epic conclusion to the Jurassic era of films coming to cinemas on June 10th. A dinosaur will be brought to life in London’s Trafalgar Square using first-of-its-kind filmmaking technology. Running from 25th to 29th of May 2022, this is one unique event.
Visitors will get to meet the Giganotosaurus in a unique, unmissable immersive experience that champions the unrivalled, groundbreaking legacy of Jurassic World’s visual effects and technology. The installation will run Wednesday 25th May to Sunday 29th May.
Continuing a 30-year partnership dating back to the original Jurassic Park, Universal Pictures and Amblin Entertainment have again teamed up with the award-winning VFX leaders at Industrial Light & Magic to resurrect a full-size Giganotosaurus using the latest in virtual production technology from the film industry in the UK. Using an 8m x 8m high-resolution LED screen, the Trafalgar Square background will be recreated from LiDAR scans and photogrammetry.
Created and animated by ILM’s London studio, the Giganotosaurus will then be composited onto a screen in front of this 3D background. The entire composition will be lit based on environmental conditions on the day by technicians from Territory Studio London.
Jurassic World Dominion is the first to bring this technology to the public realm, in the perfect storytelling context, to create the ultimate immersive experience.
Visitors will have the opportunity to capture their experience with the Giganotosaurus, as well as exploring a specially built Dinosaur Tracking Base displaying artefacts from the films, including a model of Velociraptor Blue, a dinosaur egg incubator, and a cast of the only Giganotosaurus skull ever discovered, which was uncovered in the Candeleros Formation of Patagonia in 1993.
