Watch a Pitch Trailer for JURASSIC WORLD

     September 11, 2013


We got some very exciting news regarding director Colin Trevorrow’s Jurassic Park 4 last night by way of an official title (Jurassic World) and a release date (June 12, 2015), and now another exciting Jurassic World snippet has landed online.  A “pitch trailer” that was apparently shown to Steven Spielberg andKathleen Kennedy has been released, and it might just give us the slightest idea of what Jurassic World entails.  Producer Frank Marshall has already confirmed that the trailer has nothing to do with the film, but it certainly hints towards a central premise or idea that would inform the Jurassic World title.  Might Trevorrow be unleashing dinosaurs on the entire planet this time around?  Time will tell, but for now hit the jump to check out this pitch trailer. 

Here’s the trailer (via STYD), followed by an explanation from the person who posted it.

All I can say is this video was shown as part of Iain McCaig’s presentation at the recent Star Wars convention in Germany (he’s the fantastic concept artist and designer of Darth Maul). I can only presume it was part of a pitch for reigniting the JP movie franchise, if anyone can confirm please let me know. It was apparently shown to Kathleen Kennedy and Steven Spielberg. Mr McCaig actually said “it certainly got Steven interested in dinosaurs again…” I just think is so cool.”

    This teaser nicely works like a kind of a sequel to JPIII. It’s good to know that the next movie will finally be what it needs to be.

    I wish it was April 1st so that I could pin the ridiculousness of what I just watched on an April fools joke…..sadly, that is not the case. Then again, I’m not all that surprised that something this idiotic would actually be the pitch to get another Jurassic Park film made (and actually get accepted by the studios) considering we live in a world where films are no longer about good stories, great characters (and the character arcs they go through that make them relatable) or the emotion translated through iconic imagery. Instead, its merely about how many explosions we can fit into a 2 hour time frame (and how many idiots they can get into seats to appreciate the really expensive firework show) or, in this case, how many surfers they can murder by flying pterodactyls on a California beach.
    Bravo, Colin Trevorrow, you’ve really sold me on your “awesome” take of Jurassic Park 4….and in the process, you have officially demonstrated a new level of idiocy that I didn’t think was possible. Talk about someone who just doesn’t get what made the original so special.

    This series should have stopped after the second film.

      That’s a lot to draw from a one-and-a-half minute pitch teaser that wasn’t officially released. Next time, wait until an official trailer for the film is released before completely bashing an entire project that you know nothing about.

    • Snarky

      That was one of the most uninformed, reactionary posts I’ve ever read. You would think that in the time it took you to write all that, you would have realised that you don’t understand what a pitch trailer is.

        Even so, kmccarney88 makes a pretty valid point.

        And this footage and the concepts within do scream “made for Syfy.”

        I, personally don’t see any legitimate reason for another JP flick, except for the obvious, sad attempt to take our money. Is there really anything more to say on the subject of man living with dinosaur? I’m pretty sure the last three flicks took care of that concept. And if this is to be what that footage alludes to, does that mean this movie will just be an expansion on the last fifteen minutes of The Lost World? Because we really don’t need that.

        Then again, perhaps this film will breathe new life into a franchise thought long dead. But I kinda doubt it. Guess we’ll see in 2015.

      Obviously, the Predator up there doesn’t understand the meaning of “pitch.”

      @disqus_Y6IdcqbXOv:disqus @MattRitchey – Are you guys idiots? The whole point of a pitch is to show the studio what direction the appointed director wants to take the film. Usually a compilation of animation and/or re-edited footage from previous films (which match the desired look) to show the studio the tone and/or subject matter that he/she is hoping to accomplish with the final project.

      Therefore, you dont have to be Einstein to realize that the direction of which Trevorrow is aiming to take this next installment is into the modern world, where people doing modern day activities (such as surfing) will actually be attacked by dinosaurs.

      Anyone who is actually going to defend that concept/idea for a movie is a fool. All one would have to do is watch the last 30 minutes of The Lost World to see that that concept is incapable of working….PERIOD. If Spielberg cant pull it off….what in the hell makes you think Collin Trevorrow will be able to? Not to mention, the guy is a hack to start with.

      Please mark my words….if this is indeed the direction the movie is going, it will FAIL….Terribly.

        No, even with a terrible premise, a JP film will never fail… terribly. In an age where even the dumbest films make tons of money, a movie about rampaging dinosaurs is never going to fail. It may not live up to the wonder and spectacle of the first JP movie, but that’s not what you said.

        As for this pitch reel, there is talk that it’s associated with a game tie-in, and not the actual pitch that got Jurassic World greenlit. A good (sufficient) script is what gets a JP movie greenlit.

      • MoviesAreForever88

        Wrong, because you are assuming by “fail” I’m talking about financially…I’m not. Of course this movie is going to make tons of money…In the age of reality T.V. and non-stop terrible action films like Transformers and Iron Man 3, which gross billions of dollars even though they are complete pieces of shit….a jurassic park film set in L.A. would seem like a masterpiece to the average movie goer, these days. Which is sad.

    Planet of the Apes but with Dinosaurs.

  • Liderc

    This looks terrible lol. With all the talent in Hollywood, how could this pitch get the greenlight?

  • Nick

    That laugh in the crowd with when the surfer is taken is great. This looks like a fun idea

    “Watch a Pitch Trailer for Jurassic World”

    “Producer Frank Marshall has already confirmed that the trailer has nothing to do with the film,”

    Nice guys. Real nice.

    I truly love this site, but the reporting is getting so bad recently. As stated in the article, it wasn’t a Pitch for the movie. This was a pitch for a video game long before the film received the title and was shown months ago. I’m sure they took the title cause it sounds cool. But the video has NOTHING to do with the film. Gotta love the internet, taking something that has nothing to do with the movie and saying the movies going to be horrible because of it.
