Giant Jeff Goldblum ‘Jurassic Park’ Statue Puzzles & Wows London
God creates dinosaurs. God destroys dinosaurs. God creates man. Man destroys God. Man creates Jeff Goldblum.

Last week Londoners got a giant inflatable Donald Trump baby. This week they get a giant Jeff Goldblum-out-of-Jurassic Park statue. The latter has popped up right next to the capital’s iconic Tower Bridge and is puzzling and wowing tourists and locals alike.

The hefty, bare-chested Goldblum effigy, a homage to his Jurassic Park character Dr Ian Malcolm, was erected by Sky’s subscription service NowTV, which is is marking 25 years since Spielberg’s dino hit first graced the big screen. The service is offering up the movie as part of a subscription package.

The bizarre 330lb statue, which measures 25ft (7.6m), was apparently 250 hours in the making and will be sticking around until next week…when it relocates to MoMA (not really). The statue has become a trending topic on social media

Fullscreen To Shutter Svod Service In January, Will Lay Off Roughly 25 Staffers

Fullscreen will shutter its eponymous subscription video service, CEO George Strompolos wrote in an email to staffers yesterday afternoon, in order to more actively invest in its creator network, brand-building, and Rooster Teeth divisions. As a result, the company is letting go of roughly 25 employees, a spokesperson said.

Strompolos -- who founded Fullscreen in 2011 -- called the decision tough, and said that he’s “extremely proud” of the service, which launched in April 2016 and has subsequently served as a launchpad for shows like Jack And Dean Of All Trades; Bret Easton Ellis’ directorial debut, The Deleted (pictured above); Brandon Rogers’ Magic Funhouse; video podcasts by Tyler Oakley and Grace Helbig; and, most recently, the Hazel Hayes thriller PrankMe.

Fullscreen Sets Sept. 28 Premiere For Hazel Hayes Thriller ‘PrankMe’ (Teaser)

After tendering roughly 20 layoffs in order to amplify efforts around original programming, Fullscreen has provided a sneak peek at one of its most highly anticipated upcoming shows -- a thriller called PrankMe directed by YouTube star Hazel Hayes.

First announced back in June, PrankMe follows a young social media star named Jasper Perkins -- played by Emmy nominee Corey Fogelmanis (Girl Meets World) -- who transforms from an online prankster into a murderer who uses his following to find new victims. The eight-episode series was written by Paul Neafcy (Jack And Dean Of All Trades) and shot in London over the summer. It represents Hayes’ biggest directorial effort to date -- though she has posted several short films, web series, and sketches to her Chewing Sand YouTube channel, which counts roughly 250,000 subscribers.

Margot Robbie Discusses Her Excised Backstory In Suicide Squad And Harley Quinn Spinoff Plans

Whether you love or hate the movie, there's no denying that Margot Robbie gave a standout performance as Harley Quinn in Suicide Squad. Given the near unanimous praise surrounding her portrayal of the character, it's probably safe to say we'll be seeing more of Harley in future installments of the Dceu. In an interview with YouTube host Hazel Hayes on her show Tipsy Talk, Robbie (over a few mimosas) expressed her joy in being able to bring the character to the big screen for the first time. “I feel like I hit the lottery… The chicks never get these roles – we never get the roles where we have the funny one-liners and then the kick-ass action scene, but then also, like, an intricate character with an awesome story arc – you just don’t really get that, like in a big-budget film.” When asked whether we'll be seeing a Harley Quinn solo film down the line,

5 Ways To Reach 100K YouTube Subscribers, From A Creator Who’s Done It

I'm Hazel Hayes and I run a YouTube channel called ChewingSand. It's mostly vlogs and short films. Last year, I left my job at YouTube (i.e. Google) to be a full time YouTube Creator, which essentially means I now make videos for a living! But it takes a lot of hard work to build a career on YouTube and a big part of that is growing a loyal audience who will regularly come back to watch your content. This is why one of the big milestones, and often the hardest one to reach, is your first 100k subscribers.

For me, hitting 100k has meant more recognition for my work, the self-satisfaction of seeing my channel grow, more opportunities to do amazing projects and meet amazing people (like speaking with Guillermo del Toro about a horror film I made), more offers from brands wanting to work with me, and therefore
