Universal Studios said they were going to release the full trailer for Jurassic World on Thanksgiving evening. Well, I guess you have another reason to be thankful, because Universal went and released the trailer on the internet 2 days ahead of time. Based on the looks of things, Jurassic World is everything you’d come to expect from a Jurassic Park movie – and actually, it looks strikingly identical to the first Jurassic Park. Only difference, is there’s a genetically modified T-Rex and Chris Pratt riding with raptors. Check out the trailer below and be sure to let us know what you think.
Alright, I’m gonna go ahead and say that the concept of there being another Jurassic Park movie is a little hard to buy into. You know how we had all those movies about how dangerous it was to make a park trying to contain and control dinosaurs that we unnaturally brought back to life? NO LONGER AN ISSUE! …unless, …we mutate them, it seems!
I circle back to the comment this this looks like a remake of the first Jurassic Park – some guy/corporation opens a Dinosaur Disneyland with carnivores of unusable sizes and is arrogant enough to believe everything will be safe and controlled. Blah, blah, life finds a way and people die. Even the opening sequence looks like a shot by shot remake of the original (drive through the park, the gate and what not). However, where Jurassic World distinguishes itself from its predecessor is; instead of a whole island run amok from man eating Dinosaurs, it’s just one… one big bad abomination of nature created by the arrogance of man – aka The D-Rex. It begs the question – is one threat enough to build tension for an entire movie? Keep in mind that each movie in the Jurassic Park trilogy upped the threat. Though, this time around the park is filled with people. There’s something oddly satisfying about the possibility of a park attendant walking out of Margaritaville only to be eaten by le wild Dino. Oh, and then we have the classic Jurassic Park music to make us feel nostalgic.
At the end of the day, at least we have Starlord (Chris Pratt) riding alongside some raptors “Onward to Victory” to savor over.
Opening in 3D, 2D and IMAX theaters on June 12, 2015, the anticipated movie stars Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Ty Simpkins, Jake Johnson, Nick Robinson, Irrfan Khan, Vincent D’Onofrio, BD Wong, Omar Sy, Judy Greer, Katie McGrath, Lauren Lapkus and Andy Buckley.
