KEENE, Texas — “I think it’s safe to say that there’s a little more job security around here after today’s donation,” joked spokesperson Amal Gamation of Southwestern Adventist University’s Dinosaur Research Project. Gamation was referring to Universal Pictures’ decision to donate 10 percent of Jurassic World’s $500M opening weekend revenues to Southwestern’s dinosaur bone museum. The $50M donation will go to expanding the facility which already boasts a massive bone collection, the only one in the world with 3D pictures of every specimen.
“As we have successfully revived the Jurassic Park film series, we are eager to invest in valuable research facilities that will help inform our creatives as we create movie sequels,” said Lough Brough, Research Director for Jurassic World. Brough said that he had first learned of Southwestern’s dinosaur collection from friends of his that work for National Geographic and had recently flown in to film two documentaries about certain dinosaur bones in the university’s collection.
“Southwestern’s work with dinosaur bones is nothing short of amazing and we are excited to use their findings as we grow the Jurassic Park franchise,” said Brough. “With our donation today we celebrate their future contributions to far-fetched pseudo scientific entertainment.”
