Beware! Jurassic Park 4 Will Get A Terrifying New Dinosaur

There is still a long time to go before Colin Trevorrow’s long-awaited sequel Jurassic Park 4 hits theaters next summer. Not like, as long as it’s been since dinosaurs actually walked the Earth or anything, but filmgoers are an impatient bunch, especially when it’s already assumed that news about such a high profile project is going to trickle out like droplets from a bad faucet. And so in the meantime, we have the still very worthwhile Jurassic Park 3D to offer some relief.

Hopefully the 3D element isn’t too scary for anybody waiting for Jurassic Park 4 though, because it just so happens a brand new species of dinosaur will fiercely saunter its way into the film. An article in USA Today (opens in new tab) celebrated Jurassic Park’s 20 year anniversary, interviewing paleontologist Jack Horner, who served as a dinosaur adviser for the film. He’s also advising for the fourth film, and presented the film’s first teaser by way of cryptic spookery, promising an appearance from a dinosaur never before seen on screen.

“I can’t actually tell you who that will be,” says Horner, who still didn’t confess after being asked really nicely with multiple cherries on top and all. “But you’ll want to keep the lights on after you see this movie.”

Entire populations of people wouldn’t know what the velociraptor was if it wasn’t for Spielberg’s film, so what other scary ass lesser-known dinosaurs could the filmmakers be thinking of next? Murdersaurus? The Freddykreugerodon? Could it possibly be the dragon from Game of Thrones? Whatever it is, it still probably won’t look anything as scary as this.

Relive the glory days below with one more dimension, on us.
