With every sequel or reboot there has to be a ramping up of something; action, explosions, bigger actors or bigger monsters. And the later is where we end up with Jurassic World. The first movie gave us the dreaded T-Rex and the velociraptor. The second movie gave us TWO T-Rexs! The third movie gave us a nasty Spinosaurus and Pterodactyls! SO, what does the next chapter bring?
Unleash the Fanboy:
"When we first heard rumors of a freak-of-science monster, the mighty sleuths of the interwebs claimed it was a many limbed, serpent necked, vulture taloned Frankenstein."
But what we got was basically a ramped up T-Rex on speed!
The Plot is best explained by the director, Colin Trevorrow, in an interview with Slash Films:
"Jurassic World takes place in a fully functional park on Isla Nublar," Trevorrow said. "It sees more than 20,000 visitors every day. You arrive by ferry from Costa Rica. It has elements of a biological preserve, a safari, a zoo, and a theme park. There is a luxury resort with hotels, restaurants, nightlife and a golf course. And there are dinosaurs. Real ones. You can get closer to them than you ever imagined possible. It's the realization of John Hammond's dream, and I think you'll want to go there."
Hammond's dream realized? Doesn't anyone care to remember the nightmare that place was? Or...is about to become? But, speaking of the nightmares of the original park, haven't we seen it all before? Isn't CGI dinosaurs such a 'Jurassic Park' kind of thing? Is there any possibility to wowed at all anymore?
"What if, despite previous disasters, they built a new biological preserve where you could see dinosaurs walk the earth...and what if people were already kind of over it? We imagined a teenager texting his girlfriend with his back to a T-Rex behind protective glass. For us, that image captured the way much of the audience feels about the movies themselves. 'We've seen CG dinosaurs. What else you got?' Next year, you'll see our answer."
And although we've heard that there will be 'good dinos' and 'bad dinos', Trevorrow had this to say:
"There's no such thing as good or bad dinosaurs... This film is about our relationship with animals, how we react to the threat they pose to our dominance on earth as a species. We hunt them, we cage them in zoos, we admire them from afar and we try to assert control over them. Chris Pratt's character is doing behavioral research on the raptors. They aren't trained, they can't do tricks. He's just trying to figure out the limits of the relationship between these highly intelligent creatures and human beings."
But still there has to be a bigger and badder dino, right?
"[T]here will be one new dinosaur created by the park's geneticists," he said. "The gaps in her sequence were filled with DNA from other species, much like the genome in the first film was completed with frog DNA. This creation exists to fulfill a corporate mandate--they want something bigger, louder, with more teeth. And that's what they get."
This must be the D-Rex pictured above? Or is there something bigger and badder coming? Can't wait to find out!
