Jurassic Park is celebrating 25 years since the release of the very first film in their franchise and what better way to do it than with a giant Jeff Goldblum statue?
Now, London natives and visitors can stop by and pay homage to Jurassic Park with a visit to the new 25-foot Jeff Goldblum statue located near the bank of River Thames by Tower Bridge.
Fans of the dinosaur megamovie can appreciate Goldblum’s pose, which is just like the often-memed pose he struck in the 1993 blockbuster. The Jeff Goldblum statue sits lounged back with the open-shirted Ian Malcolm leaned back, resting against his left elbow.
25 years ago, Jurassic Park (and one of the best moments in movie history) was born 🦕🦖

The giant Jeff Goldblum statue was commissioned by NOW TV in celebration of the 25th anniversary of Jurassic Park.
The latest sightseeing spot in London is temporary, as is the 330-pound statue so act quickly if you want to get down near Tower Bridge to take a look in person. NOW TV will be removing the statue on July 26, which is not far off.
The real Jeff Goldblum has seen his likeness and even gave his own rating to the temporary display. He loves the statue that has been dubbed #JurassicJeff and even shared a picture of it on Instagram, giving it 10 out of 10 stars.
According to CNet, the Jeff Goldblum statue’s stats are as follows: 9.8 feet tall, 23 feet long and weighs 331 pounds. The Jurassic Park monument reportedly took 250 hours to complete over the course of six weeks.
