Image of the Day: Practical effects make a comeback in Jurassic World 2

Since digital effects dominate most mega-dollar sci-fi and fantasy franchises these days, it's nice to see the art of practical effects make their way back into the creative process.

While this might be overdoing it a bit, director J.A. Bayona (The Orphanage, A Monster Calls) has shared this low-tech image of a "dramatic" SFX shot from the Hawaii set of Jurassic World 2, holding up a rubber T-rex finger puppet while writer/executive producer and Jurassic World director Colin Trevorrow captures the magic with his camera.

While this is all fun and games to let off some steam on the massive production, it would be kinda cool to see a retro, grindhouse-style dinosaur movie relying solely on old-school practical creatures some day.

Hey, if you're gonna wish, wish big!
