I’m pretty excited for a new Jurassic Park movie. The first film was just such a benchmark in summer blockbusters when it came out, but it still had a ton of heart underneath all those special effects and Samuel L Jackson being a bad lunch. A decent pair of sequels later, and Jurassic Park returns in the form of Jurassic World next year. But it’s going to have a different kind of menace lurking in the background this time.
Naturally, there be spoilers ahead. Commence the warnings:
MUST GO SPOILER
YOU’LL HAVE TO GET USED TO DOCTOR SPOILER, HE SUFFERS FROM A DEPLORABLE EXCESS OF SPOILER, ESPECIALLY FOR A SPOILER
WELCOME TO JURASSIC SPOILER
KEEP ABSOLUTELY STILL. IT’S SPOILERS ARE BASED ON MOVEMENT
Right, consider yourself warned then. After three films, the idea of seeing the same Cretaceous creatures battle one another again could be horse that has been beaten, drugged and lowered into a Velociraptor cage for din-dins. Instead, expect Jurassic World to finally be the massive theme park that John Hammond envisioned, with the dinosaur resort proving to be an international attraction. That much we know already, but Joblo has some new details.
In an effort to attract even more visitors to Jurassic World, the executives in charge start a new project with the science lab that results in dinosaur DNA being spliced with the DNA of other species. According to sources, this results in a creature that is a hybrid of a T-Rex, Velociraptor, snake and cuttlefish.
The big bad dinosaur has instant camouflage abilities, like the cuttlefish, so he blends into the background, is smart like the velociraptor, uses his jaw like a snake, and can terrorize like the T-Rex.
Naturally, this combination of human greed and arrogance results in some trouble for the park.
But wait, there’s more!
With this new abomination causing havoc as it ascends up the food chain, it’ll be up to the park staff to put it down for good. So how do they plan on doing that? With a little dinosaur help of their own this time. That’s right, Jurassic Park has good dinosaurs for once, as Chris Pratt’s character is believed to be a trainer who has tamed Velociraptors and T-Rexes for park entertainment. This time, the dinosaurs are on our side as Pratt uses them to hunt down the DNAsaur, eventually leading them into battle. LET THEM FIGHT!
It sounds like a cool idea, and a fresh one at that. As long as we don’t see laser turrets being strapped to a Stegosaurus and gatling guns placed on an Allosaurus, we’re still a few steps removed from this film becoming a Dino Riders movie. Jurassic World stars Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Vincent D’Onofrio, Omar Sy, Ty Simpkins, Irrfan Khan, Ty Simpkins, Judy Greer, and Nick Robinson.
Colin Trevorrow directs for a June 2015 release.
