We've already seen a few trailers for Jurassic World, but thanks to the coming MTV Movie Awards, tonight we get a special extended preview of one of the film's scenes. Check it out below!

MTV dropped this clip in-between your regularly scheduled viewings of Catfish and Finding Carter, and for those of you looking for relief from either of those shows, you were in luck tonight. Surprisingly, Jurassic World's first clip wasn't an affair that involved dinosaurs – at least, not directly. Instead, we got to see our first look at interaction between Bryce Dallace Howard's Claire Dearing and Chris Pratt's Owen Grady. Apparently, Owen's way with raptors could come in handy as Claire needs to consult him on the soon-to-be unveiled Indominous Rex. Which is a good thing too, because if Owen knew dinosaurs as much as he knew women, Jurassic World might have been a much shorter movie.

The best part about this new look at Jurassic World is the fact that it feels like it actually belongs in the universe of the original Jurassic Park. Out of the three sequels to the 1993 original, this one looks like it might be a worthy successor to Steven Spielberg's classic summer blockbuster. The witty banter, the fun characters, and the ultimate message of chaos versus commerce are all here, just waiting for fans to return to the park and enjoy a thrill ride that spares no expense. Even the Michael Giacchino underscoring sounds like it could have been edited and approved by John Williams himself, which only gives the moment an extra tinge of magic.

Directed by Colin Trevorrow, and co-written by the director and partner Derek Connolly, Jurassic World is set 22 years after the events of Steven Spielberg's Jurassic Park, and finds the titular theme park actually operating and showcasing living dinosaurs for a paying audience. Unfortunately, ticket sales begin to dwindle, and as a result the management decides to try doing something brand new: creating a new species of dinosaur. What they wind up creating is more dangerous than any giant lizard the world has ever seen, and things begin to go terribly wrong when it manages to escape.

Jurassic World features an impressive lineup of stars, including Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Ty Simkins, Nick Robinson, Irrfan Khan, Vincent D'Onofrio, Jake Johnson, Omar Sy, BD Wong, and Judy Greer. Considering the quality of the film on display thus far, you can count us being on line for prime seats on opening weekend. Fingers crossed this film is good enough that it'll wipe the memory of Jurassic Park III right out of our memories.

Jurassic World will be in theaters on June 12th.
