Meet the super dinosaur of JURASSIC WORLD, the Indominus Rex

Jurassic World Rex (3)

Jurassic Park without science running amok is like cheese-flavoured chips without the fake onion taste added to the mix: just plain wrong. Fortunately, Jurassic World has been playing god again, as this year’s return to the infamous theme park will reveal a new strain of carnivore, one bigger than the series mascot T-Rex.

Jurassic World Rex (1)

It now has an official name, as the film has revealed the Indominus Rex. Here’s the in-film advertising blurb advertising the abomination, written by folks who have no idea that something is about to go very, very wrong on Isla Nubar once again:

Jurassic World Rex (2)

We set out to make Indominus the most fearsome dinosaur ever to be displayed at Jurassic World. The genetic engineers at our Hammond Creation Lab have more than delivered. At first glance, Indominus most closely resembles a T. Rex. But its distinctive head ornamentation and ultra-tough bony osteoderms can be traced from Theropods known as Abeliosaurs.

Indominus’ horns have been placed above the eye orbit through genetic material hybridized from Carnotaurus, Majungasaurus, Rugops and Giganotosaurus. Fearsome indeed. Indominus’ roar is estimated to reach 140-160db—the same as a 747 taking off and landing. And it can reach speeds of 30 mph…while confined to its enclosure.

Come experience Indominus Rex for yourself beginning this summer. If you dare.

If you didn’t have a running subscription (And super sweet glow-in-the-dark T-Rex skeleton) from the Dinosaurs magazine, here’s what you need to know: Indomitus Rex basically combines DNA from some of the most savage carnivores that existed in the Cretaceous period. I’m talking big killers, fast stalkers and cunning scavengers. A lethal combination of extinct dinosaurs, augmented by alien DNA from other creatures that survived the end of the Cretaceous era and beyond. Chris Pratt is going to need a lot of velociraptors to take this beast down.

Jurassic World is out June 12.

  1. My main question with this movie is why did they choose to ignore that scientists have realised that Dinosaurs had feathers, not scales.

    Now when I watch this, I’ll just think the entire time “this is BS. this is BS. That’s BS. ffs >_<"

      He speaks the truth! But this has Chris Pratt in, and he IS the truth!

      Director Colin Treverrow issued a whole statement on this. Basically, they know the science behind it, but it was a creative choice so as to have this movie tie in properly with the previous ones. If the dinos in this movie suddenly started sprouting feathers, there would be no way to explain why the previous ones didn’t either since they essentially came from the same DNA.

      TL;DR: It’s a movie not a science lesson

        That makes a lot of sense. 🙂

    I hope Chris Pratt trained a T-Rex, it would look epic, oh but wait, this just in,

    “People at the theme park where enjoying a nice sunny day, admiring the gentle giants the brontosaurus, when all of a sudden a huge robot mechanical like being ran loose in the theme park on a dinosaur what seems to imitate a T-REX like machine , people heard him yell “I will safe you Humans” , we heard a name, sounded like Optimus or Prime, screams were heard as “Optimus” headed towards the Indominus Rex’s cage, for no reason, the robot dubbed “Optimus” stuck a sword in the Indominus’s neck, children crying, adults shocked, with only a kid’s voice creeping threw the masses, quoted saying, “Man Optimus is a dick”…:-P
