"Life finds a way." Boy, was Ian Malcolm right, and boy, does he hate being right all the time. If Corporate wants to capitalize on something at the expense of thousands of people, by god, they're gonna get what it they want! We're looking you Weyland-Yutani. Usually, this isn't a good thing, unless it's taking place in a movie, and for the legion of Jurassic Park fans, there is no way for them not to be happy that life found a way to make a fourth installment in the franchise. The trailer recently released for the movie was awesome and without a doubt will have many going crazy for the next 7 months waiting to see it. I'm no exception. I'm doing the same thing for [Star Wars: Episode VII — The Force Awakens](movie:711158) (a year?! You're letting us see the trailer a full year before the movie comes out?! We're all gonna go insane!)

Seriously, how awesome was this?!

Back to [Jurassic World](movie:32752), if you've read the books, there was always an underlying element of corporate rivalry, and while many things in the books were changed for the movies, that rivalry was brought to the screen. In Jurassic Park, we were introduced to Dennis Nedry (Wayne Knight), a disgruntled employee of Hammond's who meets with man from another company. Nedry is supplied with a can of shaving cream with a removable bottom that is capable of storing frozen embryos of the dinosaurs within Hammond's new park. "Eighteen minutes, and your company catches up on ten years of research," he tells the man. The name of the company is not disclosed, but we have learned that the new Jurassic World is no longer run by Ingen, but rather, Masrani.

Theories have already been explored that the reason the two children in the trailer are going to the park without their parents, is that the park is having a Coupon Day, as suggested in Jurassic Park by the "blood-sucking lawyer," Gennaro. I don't know about you, but I have yet to see anything suggesting just who this Masrani company is, so I'll give my theory. Masrani is the company Nedry was originally going to sell Hammond out to. Makes sense, doesn't it?

My next question on the matter was that if this is so, why would they feature a statue of Hammond in the park? We know this element will be in the movie because producers have said it will be there as an homage to the late Sir Richard Attenborough. If this is the the rival company from Jurassic Park, perhaps they would feature it as a guise of thanks for giving them the technology to make this park, when in reality it is a slap in his face for not being able to achieve success where they have. In the words of Ian Malcolm, "There it is."


Did I get it right? Is Masrani the rival company from Jurassic Park?
