They’ve successfully brought dinosaurs back from the dead. They’ve integrated them into a popular theme park resort that’s doing pretty well. What’s their obvious next step? Modify the dinosaur DNA to make them smarter and infinitely more dangerous! Behold, the “birth” of the Indominous Rex; basically T-Rex 2.0, created purposefully to be bigger and smarter than the Tyrannosaurus Rex. These guys aren’t worried, though. They’ve got raptor-whisperer Owen Grady (played by Chris Pratt) working alongside them. What could go wrong? Apparently, as seen by the full trailer Universal released for Jurassic World… a lot.
The trailer depicts Jurassic World, directed by Colin Trevorrow, as being a bit more violent than past Jurassic installments. The film looks action-packed, and frankly, terrifying (did you SEE those pterodactyls!?). The addition of the Indominous Rex into the mix makes for a Planet of the Apes type twist. Let’s review some of this GMO-Rex’s stats: she ate her own sister, she can communicate with other animals in the park, she kills for sport, and she removed her own tacking device after remembering where it was implanted.
Jurassic World opens June 12th, and looks to have all the makings of a summer blockbuster. Other actors attached to the project are Bryce Dallas Howard as Claire Dearing, an employee of Masrani Global, which runs Jurassic World; Vincent D’Onofrio plays Vic Hoskins, the park’s security chief; Irrfan Khan as Simon Masrani, head of the Masrani Global corporation, and BD Wong, who reprises his researcher/scientist role of Henry Wu.
If viewers can get past the face-palm feeling of:
Didn’t we try this already, and didn’t it end badly?
Then this film looks like a fun, fast-paced, and intense ride. The CGI alone looks well worth a viewing!
