The world lost a great filmmaker and actor this past weekend with the passing of Sir Richard Attenborough.  Though his directing credits included films like Gandhi (for which he won 2 Oscars) , A Chorus Line, and Chaplin, many probably best remember him as the mild-mannered John Hammond from Jurassic Park.  Though filming on the new Jurassic Park film, Jurassic World, has wrapped, director Colin Trevorrow felt it was fitting to share a new Jurassic World image in remembrance of Attenborough, as it shows a statue memorializing his John Hammond character.  Though Hammond himself likely doesn’t appear in Jurassic World, the character no doubt looms large thanks to Attenborough’s unforgettable performance. The film opens in theaters on June 12, 2015.
