Get ready to feel old – the first Jurassic Park film was released just over 21 years ago, back in 1993. The full-length trailer for the fourth sequel in the Spielberg-originated classic franchise was broadcast during Super Bowl XLIX, and is aptly named Jurassic World.
The trailer, which follows a teaser released back in November, shows a futuristic Isla Nublar, which houses a fully functional and deadly dinosaur-filled theme park – any idea where this might be going?
It starts on a positive note showing a Sea World-esque arena housing a dinosaur that a park worker describes as “a little shy” – as it leaps its gigantic killer-whale-on-steroids body out of the water to eat a great white shark dangling above it on some rope. The audience even get that ‘Sea World happy ending’, and leave the arena drenched and wanting more.
It’s this desire for more that apparently drives the park owners to create a genetically modified dinosaur. The film’s plot summary states that: “After many years, attendance rates begin to decline and a new attraction created to re-spark visitor interest, gravely backfires.”
You can only assume that the dinosaur they have stuck together in the lab isn’t a herbivore…
Chris Pratt plays Owen, who from the trailer, seems to be the one set to save the day. The Guardians of the Galaxy star is joined by a cast including Bryce Dallas Howard, Judy Greer and Vincent D’Onofrio among others. The trailer features a piano cover of the original Jurassic Park theme composed by John Williams.
