This morning, Universal released the first trailer for Colin Trevorrow‘s Jurassic World. You can watch that awesome trailer here, in case you haven’t seen it already. (Or if, like me, you want to watch it over and over again.) And for those of you who really want to take in all of the visuals revealed in the first Jurassic World trailer, we have compiled a batch of high resolution images from the film to let you take in all the awesomeness one image at a time. Hit the jump to see the Jurassic World photos now.
Jurassic World Photos
The Jurassic World trailer opens up with Gray (Ty Simpkins) and Zach (Nick Robinson), who will likely serve as our entry point into Jurassic World. We see that their mother and father are saying goodbye to them at an airport. Who sends their kids alone to an island full of dinosaurs? Isn’t this usually a family or couples vacation? It didn’t go well the last time kids were sent to this island without their parents :)
“Just remember, if something chases you — RUN!”. We then cut to a shot of a cruise ship approaching the island of Isla Nublar, the same island from Steven Spielberg’s original Jurassic Park. Gary and Zach must have taken a plane to Costa Rica and boarded the boat there to go to the island.
Gray is excited (Ty Simpkins doing his best Spielberg face) as the monorail brings him and the other park gusts through the Jurassic World gates into the resort.
Thats right, the Jurassic World gates are now at the entrance to the park’s resort, and guests see them as they ride the monorail from the dock.
The monorail takes them to the Jurassic World equivalent of Universal’s Citywalk or Disney World’s Downtown Disney — it appears to be a shopping and dining destination for tourists while not on Jurassic World attractions and excursions.
We then get a glimpse of some of the new Jurassic World attractions and excursions, some of which recall moments from the original film, and some of which are way more technologically advanced and all new. A safari-like experience. /Film reader Tim Young points out the vehicle number is the same number as the Explorer that went over the ledge in the original Jurassic Park film.
A kayaking experience:
And a section of the park where visitors wait in line for the Gyrosphere. If you look on the left of the frame you can see the track where park visitors board the gyrospheres.
This attraction apparently allows two guests to ride in a gyroscopic ball around a gated section of the island. Like the previous attractions, we assume these experiences feature only herbivorous (plant eating) dinosaurs and not the more dangerous carnivorous dinosaurs. We see Gary and Zach riding by some dinos. Now imagine an action scene with dangerous dinos on the lose told from the POV of two characters in a gyrosphere. So cool.
We then cut to one end of the island, likely near the dock since we see the monorail from the beginning of the trailer zoom by on a track off-shore.
On the shore is an outdoor stadium set-up, almost like something you would see at Sea World, but it looks connected to the ocean surrounding Isla Nublar.
A great white shark (Jaws reference anyone?) is brought out into the middle of the outside water arena hanging from a rope.
Something moves below the water.
