‘Jurassic World’ Director Colin Trevorrow Teases Terrifying New Hybrid Dinosaur
You may not believe it in this post-‘The Force Awakens’ trailer world that we now live in, but the first trailer for ‘Jurassic World’ actually did hit the Internet a few weeks ago. And one of the things we’re all dying to know more about—besides what’s up with Chris Pratt and his raptor pals, obviously—is this new hybrid dinosaur which was created in the theme park’s lab on Isla Nublar. In a new interview, director Colin Trevorrow teases his new, horrifying creation that drives much of the action of the film.
Although things seem to be going surprisingly well for Jurassic Park, which boasts many actual, living dinosaurs in its giant amusement park, the scientists have hatched a new hybrid dino to lure more customers. We have a feeling Jeff Goldblum’s Dr. Malcolm would not approve of this development.
The hybrid dinosaur is responsible for a new wave of terror on the island, and director Colin Trevorrow spoke with EW about this creation and about separating himself from Steven Spielberg’s original film:
There are dinosaurs and there’s the other—there’s this thing that is not one of them, that is not of them. There’s a lot of bold new ideas in the movie and I’m pushing it as far forward as I can. I know Steven didn’t want me to make a carbon copy of the earlier films. So we’re going for it.
“Bold new ideas,” indeed, especially after watching that first trailer, which featured a Sea World-esque attraction with an aquatic dinosaur, and that crazy moment when Chris Pratt rides up on a motorcycle with velociraptors flanking him on either side.
‘Jurassic World’ takes place 22 years after the original film, and so much has changed on Isla Nublar since that time. The film also stars Bryce Dallas Howard, Ty Simpkins, Nick Robinson, Jake Johnson, Vincent D’Onofrio, BD Wong, and Judy Greer, and hits theaters on June 12, 2015.
