WATCH: New short Jurassic Park Battle at Big Rock is here

September 16th, 2019 by Marc Comments

An new Jurassic Park short has just debuted… and it was filmed right here in Ireland!

The eight-minute short, Battle at Big Rock stars Moonlight’s André Holland and The I-Land’s Natalie Martinez as a family on a camping trip to Big Rock National Park and takes place a year after Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom when dinosaurs were released into the world (stupidest movie ending ever) –  so you can guess what happens.

Director Colin Trevorrow said: “They have a grove of redwood trees outside Dublin that look exactly like the national parks in northern California.

“I honestly never thought we’d make it this far without getting found out. The Irish can keep a secret.”

BATTLE AT BIG ROCK is an all-new short film directed by Colin Trevorrow, written by Trevorrow and Emily Carmichael. The short takes place one year after the events of the last Jurassic World film in Big Rock National Park, where dinosaurs are now living in our world.

The story follows a family of four whose encounter with these wild animals becomes a terrifying fight for survival.

Starring: André Holland Natalie Martinez Melody Hurd Pierson Salvador

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
