Two of our most anticipated films next year happen to be sequels: ‘Jurassic World’ and ‘Mad Max: Fury Road.’ It’s not often that sequels get people this excited, which is even more reason to celebrate. Following their fantastic trailers, both films have just released new photos to give us a sneak peek at a couple of particularly awesome moments. And while these photos should help satisfy our craving to see these films immediately, we have to admit that they’re just making us a little more impatient.
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.
Your Christmas gift from ‘Jurassic World’ has arrived early. Previously, the first trailer for the upcoming sequel had teased a moment near the end in which Chris Pratt’s character appeared to be teaming up with the super lethal velociraptors to take down the super-smart hybrid dinosaur wreaking havoc in the world’s most ill-advised theme park. And now director Colin Trevorrow has revealed this pretty rad new photo of Pratt hanging tough with one of his raptor pals.
Much was made about how the ‘Avengers 2' trailer broke online viewing records for 2014, shattering the previous record by ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’. But, records were made to be broken and it took just over a month for the ‘Avengers 2’ trailer to be surpassed, not surprisingly by the ‘Star Wars: Episode 7’ trailer, which, if it keeps up at its current pace, could set the all-time record for trailer views.
Just yesterday, director Colin Trevorrow opened up in an interview about all the new dinosaurs in ‘Jurassic World,’ and when asked about the absence of the T-Rex in the trailer, he assured us that we’d definitely see our favorite massive carnivore in the film. Following the debut of the trailer, the film’s official site has been expanded and some exploration has revealed the first images of the T-Rex from the upcoming sequel.
We’re all still a little excited about that ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ trailer, but the first official full-length trailer for ‘Jurassic World’ also debuted a few days ago, and we’re still thinking about a few things: The giant aquatic dinosaur leaping through the air to eat the shark, the super-smart hybrid dino that serves as the film’s central conflict, and the implication near the end of the trailer that Chris Pratt’s protagonist is using the velociraptors to help track down and kill the super-smart killer dino. Director Colin Trevorrow knows exactly what we want to talk about, in a new interview, he’s talking about all of it.
Released in 1993, ‘Jurassic Park’ is still one of the biggest movies of all-time and one of the best action-adventure movies of the blockbuster era. How is it that the visual effects in a movie from 1993 look better than most movies made today? You can find out about that, and all other things ‘Jurassic Park’ in the latest episode of You Think You Know Movies, which focuses on Steven Spielberg’s prehistoric classic. Hold on to your butts!
“You just went and made a new dinosaur? Probably not a good idea.” And, there’s the ‘Jurassic Park 4’ trailer summed up for you in pretty much one exchange. While the previous ‘Jurassic Park’ films dealt with the folly of John Hammond’s original plans for the park, this new film imagines a world where Jurassic Park is now up and running. The kinks have been worked out. Raptors are trained. But, people are still people and that means they do really stupid things. Like create massive “hybrid” dinosaurs to goose attendance at their park.
A few days ago, the YouTube page for Universal Spain posted memorable footage of the cup of water vibrating from ‘Jurassic Park’ as a teaser for ‘Jurassic World,’ which seemed pretty curious. But today brings our first official footage from ‘Jurassic World’ in the form of a far more awesome teaser for the trailer, which will hit the web on Thanksgiving day. If that’s not something to be thankful for, what is?
At a glance, MasraniGlobal.com looks like any other website for a boring technology company, with details on its founder, Sanjay Masrani, his son and successor Simon, and their financial interests in construction, engineering, real estate, health care, and dinosaur theme parks. On second thought, perhaps that last part is a clue that Masrani Global doesn’t exist, except as a fictional company in the story of ‘Jurassic World,’ next summer’s sequel to Steven Spielberg’s ’90s dinosaur classic.
