‘Jurassic World’ Footage Shot in Hawai’i
The big summer hit movie “Jurassic World” ranked in as the biggest opening in movie history taking in $400 million in the first 10 days of opening.
Much of the scene footage for the film took place in Hawai’i and Blue Hawaiian Helicopters, with locations throughout the state, including in Hilo and in Waikoloa, flew aerial photography for the chart topping film.
“We’re extremely proud and thrilled to be associated with the ‘Jurassic Park’ films and especially ‘Jurassic World,’ which continues our track record of being Hollywood’s first-call helicopter for movies shot in Hawai’i,” said Gregg Lundberg, president of Blue Hawaiian. “Filmmakers responsible for hundreds of millions of dollars in major film and television productions have always trusted Blue Hawaiian, and we think that speak volumes about our entire team’s professionalism and reliability.
Blue Hawaiian has provided the service for the three prior Jurassic Park movies, and also appeared in the most recent film with its Airbus Eco-Star T2s in an on-camera role.
The Jurassic Park films haven’t been the only major productions Blue Hawai’i has worked with. Among some of the other blockbusters are “Battleship;” “Pirates of the Caribbean – At World’s End” and “Pirates of the Caribbean – On Stranger Tides;” “Pearl Harbor;” “Flight of the Intruder;” “Crimson Tide;” “George of the Jungle;” “Six Days, Seven Nights;” “Honeymoon in Vegas;” “Tropic Thunder;” and “The Big Bounce.”
Television productions on several networks and shows, including MTV, The Food Channel, The Weather Channel, National Geographic, and Wheel of Fortune have all featured aerial photography conducted by Blue Hawaiian.
