Jurassic World Getting Great Early Reactions From Weekend Premiere
Jurassic World is only a mere 11 days away, and considering this could be the Jurassic Park sequel most have been waiting for since that fateful first viewing in 1993, the wait is both a piece of cake and hard as hell. While the general public at large still has no idea what to expect, save for what the trailers have shown us, those who attended the Paris premiere have taken to Twitter to share their reactions. If you're a Jurassic Park die hard, you're about to get some good news.
Comic Book Movie shared some of the reactions they saw from the recent premiere in Paris, and there's a pretty big tidal wave of love for the next outing to the park. You can read the full compliment of reactions at the link above, but a couple of reactions stood out when we scanned the lot. For starters, Josh Gad, he of Frozen and The Wedding Ringer fame, not only stated that Colin Trevorrow "has hit a grand slam," but has gone on record as stating the following:
Most importantly, Gad had a lot of praise for Jurassic World star Bryce Dallas Howard, as he closed his series of tweets with the following missive:
This is good news, considering the film already has come under fire for the possibility of being a bit sexist in its execution, by none other than Avengers: Age Of Ultron director Joss Whedon. It's starting to sound like we might get to see some strong female character motivation in Jurassic World yet. Meanwhile, French actress Anouchka Delon had some very positive things to say herself about the film, specifically how well the film holds up to the original. Her verdict is as follows:
Delon's Twitter followers grilled her pretty good on the quality of the film, and she put the film right behind the original Jurassic Park in ranking of quality, as well as noting that the T-Rex from the original film is "wonderful" in the new flick.
Jurassic World looks and sounds like it has the essential elements that can make a brilliant sequel to Steven Spielberg's 1993 blockbuster, and that claim is only bolstered by two tracks from Michael Giacchino's score, being released through YouTube. Thanks to Zed TV, you can listen to "As The Jurassic World Turns" and an untitled track in the video below.
While we won't dwell too much on the stereotypically amazing work from Giacchino's composing pen, we will say that the new music has enough of John Williams DNA to connect strongly to Jurassic Park, while showcasing the type of bombast and spectacle you'd expect from the man whose scored films like Up and Tomorrowland. We're still cautiously optimistic about Jurassic World on the whole, but overall it's starting to look like we can be excited about this movie without the fear of another Jurassic Park III in our future.
Jurassic World stomps into theaters on 2D, 3D, and IMAX 3D screens on June 12.
