While we haven’t seen any new footage from Colin Trevorrow’s Jurassic World since late November, we first heard promise of a Super Bowl trailer early last month and have been salivating ever since. Now’s it’s finally here, and you can watch it below:
The first entry in the Jurassic series since 2001’s Jurassic Park III, Jurassic World will feature the Masrani Global Corporations new genetically modified dinosaur that, surprise surprise, wreaks havoc. We’ve seen in previous promos the devastation that this new creation is causing on the island, but this new preview gives fan an extra inkling of what the island’s inhabitants will be dealing with, and it is not good. They are the prey for this creation’s blood-thirsty sport. To top if all off, quite a few of the other dinosaurs are attacking the island’s more than 20,000 visitors, all of whom are coming for a Sea World-type show with these prehistoric creatures (let’s see a whale or dolphin look as impressive as that aquatic monstrosity consuming that shark whole).
Granted, the park people put a lot of effort into giving people plenty of ways to see the dinosaurs, be it safari, rafting or…driving bubble car? Still, sometimes it’s not wise to play with forces like this, and one would think that three previous horrific incidents with dinosaurs would get the message across to these people. Owen, played by Chris Pratt, and the others are pulling out all the stops to contain the situation (including heavy firepower and using their own dinosaurs to help out), but who knows if that will be enough to stop the insanity. Those kids at the end of the preview are probably safe, though. There have to be at least a few people that survive, and the young'uns usually have good odds.
Set about 20 years after the events of the first Jurassic Park, the latest sequel begins with Jurassic World actually being a fully functional park that has all kinds of dinosaurs on display and plenty of tourists. The problem is that the attractions are starting to feel a bit old and tired, requiring the scientists and businessmen to start looking at other avenues for revenue. This is how they wind up coming across the idea of creating a whole new kind of dinosaur: the Indomnius Rex. In classic Jurassic Park fashion, however, messing with mother nature doesn’t work out too well, and before long people are back to running scared from sharp teeth and claws. The impressive cast include Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Ty Simkins, Nick Robinson, Irrfan Khan, Vincent D'Onofrio, Jake Johnson, Omar Sy, BD Wong, and Judy Greer, and you’ll be able to see Jurassic World in theaters on June 12th.
