Before you start reading this post; have you watched the Jurassic World Trailer? No? Not yet? Watch it here first, then read the post. This is for your own good!

A few days ago Universal Pictures and Legendary Pictures released the first trailer for director Colin Trevorrow’s Jurassic World, and it was amazing to say the least. It had everything; dinos, Chris Pratt and a monorail (we love monorails)

Trevorrow recently did an interview with Empire to discuss movie and the trailer which was released. A few of the questions that the trailer raised were: Why would these people genetically create a new dinosaur, has Chris Pratt’s character trained the Velociraptors and will we see the iconic Tyrannosaurus Rex? And what about the new hybrid dino??

“This new creation is what gave me a reason to tell another Jurassic Park story. We have the most awe-inspiring creatures to ever walk the Earth right in front of us, but for some reason that’s not enough. We’re always hungry for the next thing, and those who profit from it are always looking to feed that hunger. The focus groups want something bigger than a T-Rex. And that’s what they get.”

Trevorrow went on to talk about the Mosasaurus – the aquatic dino that ate the suspended shark in the trailer:

“I thought it would be cool if we had this massive animal and the park used one of our most fearsome modern predators as food. There could be a whole other facility where they used shark DNA to mass-produce them to feed the bigger beast. It’s a bonkers idea, but I’m comfortable going to Crazytown, because I used to live there when I was a kid.”

Colin also spoke about Pratt’s character, Owen, who has apparently trained the Velociraptors of Jurassic World to help him hunt down the dinosaur that was “cooked up in the lab.”

“Owen’s relationship with the raptors is complicated. They aren’t friends. These animals are nasty and dangerous and they’ll bite your head off if you make the wrong move. But there are men and women out there today who have forged tenuous connections with dangerous predators. That’s interesting territory to me.”

Trevorrow was then asked if we’d be seeing the most awesome of the lot – the T-Rex – in Jurassic World, and he replied:

“You bet your ass you will.”

Universal also recently launched the official site for the film. It now includes some news and details about the actual park, including photos of the main street/gift shop/petting zoo. The site is fully interactive and contains a lot of media to keep you (us) entertained for hours. There’s also a video guide of Isla Nublar’s Hilton Hotel (below)

The closer we get to the release date, the more options will be unlocked on the site, there’s even a menu you can look at, and the top item is Chilean Sea Bass, and we all know what that means. Remember the first film? They ate Sea Bass before all hell broke loose.
