New JURASSIC WORLD Image Has Chris Pratt Ridin’ with Raptors; Director Colin Trevorrow Teases the Threat of “The Other”

Yesterday, we got a new Jurassic World image of Chris Pratt hanging out with a raptor, which felt like a way of doubling down on one of the more controversial aspects of the first trailer—shouldn’t raptors be scary?  Isn’t it cooler if they’re wild and undomesticated?  Of course, we don’t know the context of this perceived friendship or how it will play out, so I’ll give director Colin Trevorrow the benefit of the doubt, especially since a new image has been released that shows researcher Owen (Pratt) riding a motorcycle alongside his raptor pals.  But perhaps they’re not friends as much uneasy allies since this time there’s a much bigger threat out in the park.

The holidays are approaching, but as everyone readies themselves for trips and food and awkward time with extended relatives next week, Jurassic World director Colin Trevorrow wanted to offer up a little holiday greeting in the form of a new image from the film.  It’s a nice sentiment that’s made all the more special by the fact that the image in question is undeniably great, as it shows a badass-looking Chris Pratt taking part in a staring contest with a feisty velociraptor at his side.  We caught a brief glimpse of Pratt’s character seemingly working alongside the raptors in the film’s teaser trailer, and this image seems to suggest that he and the dangerous creatures just might be buddies.

Thanks to the official Jurassic World website, we know that Irrfan Khan plays a man named Simon Masrani, the CEO of Masrani Global Corporation, the company that acquired InGen in 1998 and brought John Hammond’s dream to fruition.  What kind of person is he?  What motivated him to take that risk?  While being honored at the River to River Florence Indian Film Festival, Khan revealed additional details regarding who Simon Masrani is.

Hit the jump to catch what Khan had to say about Jurassic World.  The film is due in theaters in 2D, 3D and IMAX on June 12, 2015 and also stars Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Nick Robinson, Ty Simpkins, Vincent D’Onofrio, Jake Johnson, Omar Sy and Judy Greer.

TOP 5: STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS Trailer, Roberto Orci Not Directing STAR TREK 3, First TERMINATOR: GENISYS Trailer, BOND 24, JURASSIC WORLD Trailer

Available now on VOD is director Igal Hecht‘s documentary The Sheik. Funny at times and jarringly raw at others, the film offers a look at the life of Khosrow Vaziri, better known by his fans as The Iron Sheik. In only 95 minutes the film does an admirable job of spanning Vaziri’s life before, during, and after his legendary professional wrestling career. This approach leaves you invested in Vaziri as a person rather than just as a wrestling/social meda icon, making the highs feel sweeter and the lows all the more tragic as a result. There’s much to like about The Sheik but, as a kid who grew up watching wrestling, the most interesting parts of the film for me were those dedicated to Vaziri’s time in the WWF (now WWE). Seeing the way that the Iran hostage crisis helped fuel The Iron Sheik’s ascent in pro wrestling as the sport’s greatest villain/heel is a fascinating example of the way Vince McMahon has used social issues and xenophobia to help build an entertainment empire. Hearing Vaziri talk about the offers he had from individuals who wanted him to go against McMahon’s plan and beat Hulk Hogan is yet another highlight. All told, The Sheik is a highly entertaining doc that anyone with a shred of pro wrestling nostalgia should go out of their way to see.

Recommendations aside, this week’s Top 5 will attempt to make up for last week’s absence by featuring hits from this week and last including the first trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, the news that Roberto Orci is no longer directing Star Trek 3, the first trailer for Terminator: Genisys, Bond 24 getting an official title and casting announcements, and the first trailer for Universal’s Jurassic World. Keep reading for a brief recap and link to each of the above.

Colin Trevorrow Talks About the New Dinosaurs In JURASSIC WORLD; Official Site Updated

jurassic-world-new-dinosaurs

While I’m fine overall with the Jurassic World trailer teaser (my only real issue was the incomplete CG, which isn’t a complaint at all considering the fact it will all be done in time for the release of the finished film), a few people had some nagging questions about the giant aquatic dinosaur and the seemingly friendly nature of the Velociraptors Chris Pratt rides with in the final shot of the teaser.

But now director Colin Trevorrow (after addressing some of the CG concerns earlier this week) has endeavored to answer a few of those questions.  Hit the jump for what he has to say about the new dinosaurs in the film.  Jurassic World is due in theaters in 2D, 3D and IMAX on June 12, 2015.  The film also stars Bryce Dallas HowardNick RobinsonTy SimpkinsVincent D’OnofrioIrrfan Khan, Jake Johnson, Omar Sy and Judy Greer.   Also, the film’s official site has been updated to provide a more comprehensive look at the park.

Colin Trevorrow Addresses the CG Gate in the JURASSIC WORLD Trailer

Even after just one second of that Jurassic World trailer teaser, I was already nervous.  Why?  Because of that stupid gate.  We finally get our first look at some Jurassic World footage and the very first thing we see is a digital shot of the park gate?  Ugly/obvious CG is always problematic, but when Jurassic Park is so well known for its incredible practical effects, opening a promo with a shot like that is bound to be a major turnoff and raise some serious doubts.

Sure enough, a couple of fans called director Colin Trevorrow out on Twitter.  Check out how he responded to the tweets about the Jurassic World gate after the jump.  Jurassic World is due in theaters in 2D, 3D and IMAX on June 12, 2015.  The film stars Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Nick RobinsonTy SimpkinsVincent D’OnofrioIrrfan Khan, Jake Johnson, Omar Sy and Judy Greer.

Along with today’s first Jurassic World trailer, Universal Pictures has also released four new images from the upcoming sequel.  The movie takes place 22 years after Jurassic Park and is set on a fully functional park on Isla Nublar.  The folks running Jurassic World think genetically modified dinosaurs are a good idea, and so naturally bad things happen.  These images show off one of the film’s new doohickeys, a gyroball (not the official name, but I don’t know what else to call it), which looks like it tumbled out of Oblivion and got a paintjob.

First JURASSIC WORLD Trailer Starring Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard Has Huge Dinosaurs and a Fully Operational Theme Park

Universal has released the first Jurassic World trailer online.  The movie takes place 22 years after Jurassic Park and is set on a fully functional park on Isla Nublar.  My initial thoughts are… “please God don’t let that be the final CG render.”  I love the concepts at play here, I love the fact that there are paying customers at the park.  I love action hero Chris Pratt and icy Bryce Dallas Howard.  As far as the effects, it’s par for the course to issue a trailer using incomplete renders since these big blockbusters are typically worked on up until the very day they have to be delivered for prints and DCPs to be struck.  So I’m going to go ahead and say I’m still optimistic here.

Universal Pictures has released the first Jurassic World teaser trailer for director Colin Trevorrow’s (Safety Not Guaranteed) highly anticipated sequel.  The movie takes place 22 years after Jurassic Park and is set on a fully functional park on Isla Nublar.  This is the perfect kind of teaser trailer in that it offers a tiny taste of footage tinged with a hint of nostalgia (the minimal take on John Williams‘ iconic theme is great), all underlined with a sense of foreboding.  We don’t have to wait long until we see the the full trailer though, as it will debut on Thanksgiving at 6pm PT/ 9pm ET during NBC football.

JURASSIC WORLD Viral Site Launches; New Images Revealed, Plus Trailer Debuting on Thanksgiving? [Updated]

If you’re a fan of digging through viral campaigns, you’re about to be quite happy.  The Jurassic World viral site has now officially launched, giving fans the opportunity to comb through the “official” website of InGen’s new corporate owner for details about director Colin Trevorrow’s (Safety Not Guaranteed) film.  The site is touted as belonging to Masrani, a telecommunications company that was established in 1973 by Sanjay Masrani, whose son Simon (Irrfan Khan) took over the company in 1992 after Sanjay’s passing.  Simon expanded Masrani’s reach into the oil market leading to major revenue increase and, wouldn’t you know it, he purchased International Genetic Technologies (aka InGen) after the death of Dr. John Hammond in 1997.  And what did Simon do with InGen?  Well he set out to build a fully functioning Jurassic World on Isla Nublar, of course.

I’m sure there’s plenty more to be found on the viral site, but we’ve pulled some some of the more noteworthy images.  Take a look after the jump.  The pic also stars Chris PrattBryce Dallas HowardNick RobinsonTy SimpkinsVincent D’OnofrioJake JohnsonJudy Greer, and Omar SyJurassic World opens in theaters on June 12, 2015. [Update: There's a ticking clock on the website that counts down to 9pm ET on Thanksgiving, which happens to be during an NFL game on NBC, so that's likely when/where the first trailer will hit.]

JURASSIC WORLD LEGO Provides First Look at the Film’s Genetically Engineered D-Rex and More [Updated]

First, let us have a moment of celebration that there will be Jurassic World LEGO (fun side-note: it also means Chris Pratt will be tied to three LEGO lines).  Second, toys (as they usually do) provide a first look at what the film has to offer (which is why there was no dancing Groot toy available when the movie was released; James Gunn wanted to keep it a secret), and now images have leaked for what could be the main dino antagonist of Jurassic World.  The “Diabolus Rex” aka “D-Rex”, has white skin, red eyes, and is made from the DNA of a Tyrannosaurus Rex mixed with a Velociraptor, a snake, and a cuttlefish.  I’m not exactly sure what cuttlefish adds to the mix.  One of its predators is a dolphin.  You can’t be threatening if you can be taken down by a dolphin.

Just a few minutes ago director Colin Trevorrow (Safety Not Guaranteed) tweeted out the first poster for Jurassic World and it definitely sets a dark tone for the film (even though I expect this version to not be full of grit – it has Chris Pratt as the lead after all).  I’m super stoked about this movie so hopefully this means some kind of trailer is on the way soon.  We know the bulk of the film takes place inside a functioning park on Isla Nublar 22 years after the events of Jurassic Park and I can’t wait to see what kind of things are in store for us.  It feels like Friday the 13th Part 6 when they finally had campers at Crystal Lake!

Colin Trevorrow may have wrapped Jurassic World at the beginning of August, but that’s not stopping him from sharing more images from set, and this latest one is a fun throwback to the original film.  Remember when Dennis Nedry (Wayne Knight) tries to ditch Jurassic Park before all hell breaks loose and accidently knocks down the sign pointing to the East Dock in the process?  It looks as though that same sign made it into the fourth installment.

Director Colin Trevorrow Remembers Richard Attenborough with New JURASSIC WORLD Image

The world lost a great filmmaker and actor this past weekend with the passing of Sir Richard Attenborough.  Though his directing credits included films like Gandhi, A Chorus Line, and Chaplin, many probably best remember him as the mild-mannered John Hammond from Jurassic Park.  Though filming on the new Jurassic Park film, Jurassic World, has wrapped, director Colin Trevorrow felt it was fitting to share a new Jurassic World image in remembrance of Attenborough, as it shows a statue memorializing his John Hammond character.  Though Hammond himself likely doesn’t appear in Jurassic World, the character no doubt looms large thanks to Attenborough’s unforgettable performance.

Hit the jump to take a look at the Jurassic World image.  The film opens in theaters on June 12, 2015.
