JURASSIC WORLD: First Image of the Film’s New Dinosaur … Sort Of

In the last few weeks, we’ve heard a lot from Jurassic World director Colin Trevorrow about the film’s setting, timeline, characters, and, of course, dinosaurs.  And while we got a few early looks at the sequel’s human characters in these recent images, it’s really the dinos we all want to see.  So imagine our surprise when Trevorrow himself tweeted out the first image of one of the terrible lizards … sort of.

Starring Chris Pratt, Nick RobinsonTy SimpkinsBryce Dallas HowardVincent D’OnofrioIrrfan Khan, Jake Johnson, Omar Sy, and Judy GreerJurassic World opens June 12, 2015.  Hit the jump to take a look at the new dinosaur image.

Without further ado, here’s the image recently tweeted by Trevorrow which shows off the new dinosaur, or at least its sharp-toothed shadow:

Yeah, so it doesn’t reveal a whole lot, other than it’s a rather crocodilian-looking critter with at least a couple of rows of sharp teeth.  Is it a documented dino, or one that’s dreamed up instead?  We’ll have to wait and see, but until then, here’s what Trevorrow had to say recently about the film’s new dino creation which is a bit spoilery if you’d rather avoid:

Will there be crossbred dinosaurs or new species created for the movie?

We were hoping audiences could discover this on their own, but yes, there will be one new dinosaur created by the park’s geneticists. The gaps in her sequence were filled with DNA from other species, much like the genome in the first film was completed with frog DNA. This creation exists to fulfill a corporate mandate—they want something bigger, louder, with more teeth. And that’s what they get.

I know the idea of a modified dinosaur put a lot of fans on red alert, and I understand it. But we aren’t doing anything here that Crichton didn’t suggest in his novels. This animal is not a mutant freak. It doesn’t have a snake’s head or octopus tentacles. It’s a dinosaur, created in the same way the others were, but now the genetics have gone to the next level. For me, it’s a natural evolution of the technology introduced in the first film. Maybe it sounds crazy, but most of my favorite movies sound crazy when you describe them in a single sentence.

    Natural evolution of the technology, or of the human capacity for making really dumb choices? “Just because we /can/ do it, totally means we should!”

    Cautiously optimistic about this.

      In the words of Jeff Goldbum’s character from the first movie, “Yeah, but your scientists were so preoccupied with whether or not they could, they didn’t stop to think if they should.” I guess his quote is coming back haha.

    Disaster of unmitigated proportions every time we look at a dinosaur, but the people financing the new park wanted something even bigger and deadlier than those that previously wrought havoc. Sounds like a nicely grounded sequel!!

    Collin: Crap! They leaked new images from the expo licensing, let me throw them a crappy image to distract them

    I love this hands-on approach to marketing, where the director decides exactly what he wants to release – it makes for a funner approach.

    For a franchise that was dead by its third installment, and only has dinosaurs to offer, they’re really needing an original, killer plot to keep things afloat. ‘People visit island/something goes wrong/people get chased around by dinosaurs’ ain’t gonna cut it.

    It’s a real live dinosaur!

    Maybe this is just an old and boring opinion, but why can’t the freakin T-Rex be the big badass again? That was probably my biggest turn off of JP III. When that other dino broke the T-Rex’s neck, I was pretty much done with that one.

    I hope they introduce a fresh new rooster do Dino’s. There are so many species to choose from and yet they want to add a made up one
