Jurassic World, from Universal Pictures, premiered a new and spectacular trailer right before the kickoff for Super Bowl XLIX, featuring, among other things, the debut of a new dinosaur, Indominus Rex, which was genetically created in a lab. It is reportedly, as director Colin Trevorrow puts it, “bigger than a T-Rex.”
Fans have already begun weighing in, commenting that the new trailer reminds them, in many ways, of the original Jurassic Park movie, directed by Steven Spielberg, based on the novel of the same name by Michael Crichton. Spielberg is credited as being the executive producer of Jurassic World.
Besides a few glimpses of the Indominus Rex going after Chris Pratt’s character, Owen, the one minute trailer featured scenes of velociraptors, now behaving much like trained dogs under the apt tutelage of Owen. He tells them, in what will most likely be the most quotable line from the trailer, “Eyes on me.” Later in the trailer, he is seen riding on a motorcycle, in the middle of a pack of the now-loyal dinosaurs, probably hunting down the Indominus Rex.
The Jurassic World trailer also has scenes of Dimorphodons, which look similar to pterodactyls. They swoop down and attack several people, and one picks up a young girl and carries her off in its talons.
Owen mentions that the creation of the new dinosaur “probably isn’t a good idea,” but he had no say in the matter, apparently. He especially does not like it that the Indominus Rex “kills for sport.”
The events of Jurassic World take place 22 years after the plot from the 1993 flick, Jurassic Park. Other actors who star in the movie are Bryce Dallas Howard as Claire, BD Wong back as Dr. Henry Wu and Vincent D’Onofrio as Morton.
The plot of Jurassic World involves a new theme park opening, with the financial backing of the Masrani Global Corporation. Everything, of course, goes terribly and predictably wrong, but just because it is predictable that everything goes wrong, does not mean that the movie will not have more than it’s share of exciting and thrilling moments.
Director Colin Trevorrow also co-wrote the screenplay of Jurassic World, along with Derek Connolly. The movie, which is probably destined to be a blockbuster, is scheduled to hit movie theaters this coming June 12.
The Jurassic World trailer shown right before Super Bowl XLIX provided not only a few glimpses of the new genetically created dinosaur, the Indominus Rex, but also scenes of Chris Pratt, as the leading man, velociraptor trainer Owen. The scene in the trailer of kids, alone in a vehicle with a clear bubble-like window being attacked, was one of the most exciting parts about the trailer. The other dinosaurs depicted in the trailer look pretty incredible, like the Mosasaurus at the beginning that acts like a trained killer whale or dolphin, and Chris Pratt has promised that the movie will be at least 10 times better than the trailer.
