Jurassic World pays tribute to Richard Attenborough's John Hammond

08.25.2014

Yesterday we were sad to learn about the passing of legendary actor/director Richard Attenborough. Many of the comments from the schmoes here reflected a lot of memories for JURASSIC PARK’s John Hammond, played by Attenborough in 1993. Now director Colin Trevorrow has posted a new photo from his JURASSIC WORLD set which reveals a nice tribute that will be in the movie, but it's definitely is more fitting now.

Colin Trevorrow posted this image on twitter with the text “In Memoriam”:

They spared no expense.

The bronze statue of JURASSIC PARK founder John Hammond even features his signature mosquito stuck in amber on his cane. We can assume the statue is part of the new JURASSIC WORLD visitor center. The theme park, which was built on the original island Isla Nublar, sees more than 20,000 visitors every day.

JURASSIC WORLD stars Chris Pratt,Bryce Dallas Howard, Jake Johnson, Vincent D’Onofrio, Omar SyIrrfan Khan , Judy Greer, Nick Robinson , and Lauren Lapkus.

The film is set for release on June 12th 2015.

I'm just really excited that we're getting a new story rather than a retread of the origin story.

Classy move all the way. Everyone will get some warm feelings when his statue appears on screen. I'm getting more and more excited for this one as time goes on. I think it might be a very pleasant surprise!

I love this. It looks like they're really respecting the original film, which is why I continue to have faith in this movie.

This is the right way to go about it. I was hoping they'd do something like this for Jurassic World, treating Hammond as a Walt Disney-type visionary. I received 18 downvotes for it.

Didn't someone mention they should do this yesterday in the comments to the Attenborough article? Classy homage to the man.

It's a nice touch, and great way for the franchise to honor him in his iconic role.
