Colin Trevorrow Addresses the CG Gate in the JURASSIC WORLD Trailer

     November 26, 2014


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.

Here are the two Twitter exchanges Trevorrow took part in after the trailer teaser dropped:

I’m extremely relieved that this shot was made specifically for the trailer and it won’t look like this in the final film, but why bother to do that at all?  Not having a shot of the gate in the trailer wouldn’t have been a deal breaker.  Why run the risk of disappointing fans by forcing the shot into the piece using CG?

You know what the smart move would be at this point?  Release an official still of what the gate will really look like.  Hopefully that would put many at ease.
