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.
So far, director Colin Trevorrow has done an excellent job of piquing our interest for the fourth film in the classic franchise, and today we have another delightful teaser to keep us...teased.
Here's the fantastically old-school Comic-Con poster for Jurassic World:
Same vehicle from the first JP! How's that for a Jurassic bit of nostalgia, eh?
In fact, it looks like a poster from a 90s movie. It's almost as old-school as the FIRST EVER Jurassic Park movie poster, from way back in 1993:
Jurassic Park has the esteemed honor of being the only movie to make me throw up a cookie, as petrified, 7-year-old me observed Martin Ferrero's brainless lawyer sit on a toilet during a T-Rex attack. Like this:
But looking back to the simpler times of 1993 makes me realize that not everything was tainted by a fear of scaly lizards the size of a house.
Enter: My totally rad Jurassic Park flashback...
Jurassic World is one of my most anticipated films of all time. I hope it gives many nostalgia nods to Jurassic Park.
