Jurassic World trailer

After last week’s odd tease about “Something Big Is Coming” in the Jurassic Park world, it’s come true. The official Jurassic World Twitter posted a short, awesome, tease of the first Jurassic World trailer, which will premiere Thursday at 9 p.m. EST during the Seahawks/49ers game on NBC, and online everywhere.

In the footage, you’ll see Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, the new park gates and lots of dinosaurs running around. It’s pretty exciting.

Check out the first footage from Jurassic World below.

Here’s the first Jurassic World trailer tease.

Now I think the footage here looks beautiful, of course, but what’s better is the score. That’s John Williams’ classic theme, played slowly, note by note, on a piano. Eyes Wide Shut style. It gives the footage a frightening, ominous feeling, which of course is the point. Michael Giacchino did the score for director Colin Trevorrow film, using Williams’ themes. It’s a good bet this is him.

Jurassic World opens June 12. Here’s a bit from Trevorrow about what the film hopes to accomplish”

This film picks up twenty-two years after Jurassic Park. When Derek [Connolly] and I sat down to find the movie, we looked at the past two decades and talked about what we’ve seen. Two things came to the surface.

One was that money has been the gasoline in the engine of our biggest mistakes. If there are billions to be made, no one can resist them, even if they know things could end horribly.

The other was that our relationship with technology has become so woven into our daily lives, we’ve become numb to the scientific miracles around us. We take so much for granted.

Those two ideas felt like they could work together. What if, despite previous disasters, they built a new biological preserve where you could see dinosaurs walk the earth…and what if people were already kind of over it? We imagined a teenager texting his girlfriend with his back to a T-Rex behind protective glass. For us, that image captured the way much of the audience feels about the movies themselves. “We’ve seen CG dinosaurs. What else you got?” Next year, you’ll see our answer.

What do you think of the Jurassic World trailer footage?
