Every Easter Egg you might have missed in Jurassic World

Since you’ve watched Jurassic World in cinemas - if not, what the hell are you waiting for? - you’ll have seen plenty of eggs hatching on Isla Nublar.

And we don’t just mean those containing fearsome hybrid dinosaurs either - we also mean Easter eggs. The film is positively brimming with them, and in case you missed these the first or even second time around, we now have a video pointing out all of the references to 1993’s water-shaking original, which we're sure will help even fanboys connect the dots.

BEWARE – SPOILERS AHEAD (OBVIOUSLY)

Colin Trevorrow’s shiny new blockbuster is rather unsurprisingly a nod-fest to Spielberg’s earlier work, and the Jaws reference early on, coming when a great white shark is offered as a light snack for one giant water-bound dinosaur, is hard to miss. But how many more did you get?

Brought to us by Mr Sunday Movies, the following video delves into everything from characters to plot props, be it Ian Malcolm’s chaos theory water-on-palm trick turning to droplets of blood, to his book spotted being read by someone on the monorail - where we can hear Pixar director Brad Bird’s voice on the loudspeaker.

Then there’s the theory we recently brought you about Chris Pratt’s character having previously appeared in the first film, the fact that the T-Rex even bears the scars of the raptor fight from all those years ago, and a spinosaurus skeleton spotted on the main street of the amusement park – one of the few allusions to either of the largely forgettable sequels. 

Even legendary FX whizz Stan Winston has a steakhouse named after him.

Seriously, with all these references it’s any wonder they found time to write a new plot. Let alone a great one.
