The Jurassic World trailer was the biggest news of the week. That is until that Star Wars: Force Awakens teaser landed. However, that’s not saying Jurassic World lost any of its thunder because by all accounts, it was pretty spectacular and impressive. Most importantly, it also showed us more about the film and what we can expect.
THE PARK IS HUGE
Comparing Jurassic Park to Jurassic World is akin to comparing Hong Kong Disneyland to Disneyworld Florida. On a scale perspective alone, Jurassic World has got all the bells and whistles you’d expect from a successful theme park and we have no doubt that vision will be projected in its entirety to lure audiences and lend more weight to the film’s storyline.
MORE DINOS, MORE TECH
A Great White ends up being a snack for the Mosasaurus, visitors get taken on a zorb-ish like observation ride called the Gyroscope. Those were the two main things that stood out from the Jurassic World trailer and it could offer a hint of what’s to come. For example, what the heck is a Mosasaurus anyway, and who are the unfortunate souls who get attacked by a mysterious dinosaur, which sets off the dark turn for the film.
THE MYSTERY DINOSAUR
We don’t know what it is but we do know that it’s something that’s created by the scientists, which ultimately creates havoc for everyone in Jurassic World. We don’t get a glimpse of it (it’s apparently called the D-Rex), but evidently it’s huge and mean as we see Chris Pratt’s character discovering a tooth lodged in a heavily-damaged Gyroscope.
CHRIS PRATT IS A HUNTER/SECURITY TYPE GUY
From the way he’s dressed to his ominous advice to the Jurassic World higher-ups, it would seem Pratt’s character is the voice of reason of the film. But he’s one that also has to rise to the occasion to stop whatever it is that’s gone AWOL in the park. And he’s got Velociraptors on his side too. How cool is that?
ODE TO THE ORIGINAL
Frightened kids on the run- check. Adults holding flares- check. It would seem that Colin Trevorrow has left quite a few tributes to Jurassic Park in this film. But those scenes aside, Jurassic World seems to be closer to the original than the previous two sequels, and that in our books is a good thing.
