Shortly after the first Jurassic World trailer hit, which focused a lot of attention on the new genetically modified D-Rex without really actually showing what might be the most dangerous creature on the planet, a picture of the D-Rex has hit the Internet. While that is interesting, there’s another little tid-bit found on the Jurassic World website that might get many long time Jurassic Park fans even more excited.
Let’s start put with the trailer for those of you that haven’t seen it yet. Gaze in wide wonder at the beauty that is Chris Pratt:
OK, that was an interesting first look without giving away all the movie’s secrets. The image below hit Imgur and is believed to be our first look at the D-Rex. This genetically modified dinosaur is said to be intelligent, deceptively fast, and the key villain in the movie.
What do you think? It does look scary and reinforces the whole “When science goes mad and acts like God bad things will happen.”
The other big Jurassic World tid-bit that is making the Internet Rounds is this picture:
This image was found on the Jurassic World website that shows which dinosaurs will be in the movie. Notice the scars, remember that T-Rex that ended up saving the day back in Jurassic Park?
Word is that scientists believe that a T-Rex would live 20 to 30 years:
The largest and best-preserved T. rex, in the Field Museum of Chicago, is thought to have lived to almost 29 years, although it would have achieved adult size after 20 years. “Sue” is 12 metres long from head to tail, and estimated to have weighed around seven tonnes, underlining the rapid growth rate of such dinosaurs during their (relatively) short lives.
Since Jurassic World is set 20 or so years since Jurassic Park that means the T-Rex could still be alive. Could we get a big T-Rex and D-Rex fight at some point in the movie? I’m down for that!
