On June 11, 1993, Isla Nublar came into our vision as palentology pro John Hammond flew over his amusement park of cloned dinosaurs in a helicopter. It was a brilliant spectacle of animatronics and pioneering CG technology. Now, over twenty years later, the evolved Jurassic World is getting ready to roar its way into theaters in 2015.
Okay, so we could've guessed that the fight between humans and giant pre-historic creatures would be the high point of Colin Trevorrow's fourth installment of the revived Jurassic Park franchise. But today we learn that the movie will feature not only only the notorious T-Rex (yes, the one that made 7-year-old me puke with fear when he ate Martin Ferrero's character right off the crapper) and the other raptors (one of which apparently also includes a T-Rex-raptor-snake-cuttlefish fusion that, of course, gets loose and terrorizes the park), but there will reportedly also be "good dinosaurs" that, I suppose, might help humans to escape the wrath of the "bad" ones. According to recent reports:
Chris Pratt’s character is apparently something of a dinosaur trainer—think Cesar Milan, but with extinct, prehistoric lizards—and has turned some into “good guys.” That also means that there will be bad guy dinosaurs, which, you are correct in assuming, are the new guys. They can blend into their environments, are smart like velociraptors, unhinge their jaws like a snake, and are badass like T-Rex.
Given Dr. Ian Malcolm's Jurassic Park sentiment, that the scientific power to create such beasts didn't require any real discipline to attain it - and the fact that Jurassic World is once again "patenting" and "packaging" and "slapping these dangerous creatures onto the front of plastic lunchboxes", I wonder how long into the new movie we're going to see some sh*t go down, despite these new good fellas that Pratt is going to be training... My bet is twenty minutes, max.
I don't think anything can beat the first Jurassic Park, but Jurassic World already sounds pretty sweet. And I'm certainly looking forward to watching the movie now that I'm a bit older and have better control of my fear-vomit reflex. Are you?
