Universal Pictures gave fans a nice little holiday gift Tuesday with the early release of the Jurassic World trailer. It was the first big look at what director Colin Trevorrow has in store for the iconic Steven Spielberg/Michael Crichton franchise. The answer is the fulfillment of John Hammond’s dream: a dinosaur theme park where no expense is spared. However, after years, things are getting a bit stale. So the Jurassic World scientists create a new dinosaur. And we know that’s a big no-no.
As expected, reactions to the Jurassic World trailer ran the gamut from wide-eyed wonder to eye-rollingly dumb. People in the latter camp cited some of the new ways dinosaurs are being used at the park as an argument, as well as some of the computer generated effects. Now, the movie comes out in seven months so all of the effects will be finished and look better by then, but one shot in particular won’t. In fact, one shot in particular was made only for the trailer and will not be in the movie. Find out which below. Read More »
