While I’m undoubtedly anticipating the release of Jurassic World next week, I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t cautiously optimistic. From what we’ve seen in the footage so far, there’s a lot of dinosaur spectacle and action, which is the easiest way to market the film to a culture that has always been obsessed with dinosaurs. However, something just hasn’t felt right.
But a new international Jurassic World trailer has just landed online, and it’s the best one yet. With the exception of a faint echo of Bryce Dallas Howard yelling “Run!” and one quick line at the end, there’s absolutely no dialogue. It’s ominous and haunting, even if it does still show a little too much of the Indominus Rex wreaking havoc on the park.

While Captain America: Civil War is currently in production down in Atlanta, another Marvel sequel is still getting prepared to go in front of cameras next year.

Jurassic World had its world premiere in Paris over the weekend. Even though director Colin Trevorrow said he probably wouldn’t be back as director for a potential sequel, the early buzz on Jurassic World after the premiere is that he did a fine job on the film.
Keep in mind that this is a premiere screening, so some of the audience may be high on the hype of the movie and the allure of the event. But some are also usually the biggest fans who are sometimes harder to impress, especially with a sequel to a modern classic like Jurassic Park. Even so, early reactions on Twitter seem to indicate that this is the best sequel in the franchise, and it’s finally a worthy follow-up to Steven Spielberg’s original.

The park reopens on June 12 when Jurassic World hits theaters. Universal Pictures knows it has got a potential blockbuster, so the marketing is wisely using the audience’s nostalgia for the original Jurassic Park in the new film’s favor. The John Williams score, Steven Spielberg‘s enthusiasm, Chris Pratt‘s fandom, it’s all been used of the marketing strategy for the film. Speaking on a personal level, it’s definitely working.
The latest Jurassic World featurette continues this trend with a John Hammond voiceover, Pratt’s reverence for the franchise and Spielberg himself talking up the film. But it also goes one step further but showing a ton of brand new footage from the movie. In fact, the video might be half all new footage. Check out the new Jurassic World video below. Read More »

Just this past weekend we featured a new viral video from the folks at InGen Technologies, the company handling the dinosaur breeding for Jurassic World. Along with that came a new TV spot featuring some voiceover from John Hammond, using dialogue lifted straight from Jurassic Park.
