Steven Spielberg struck gold when he adapted the Michael Crichton horror-thriller, ‘Jurassic Park’. Subsequently Spielberg proceeded to milk the franchise by releasing a string of sequels that barely kept fans interested. Finally the Crichton classic is getting the reboot and treatment it deserves at the hands of a talented cast and crew with director Colin Trevorrow (Safety Not Guaranteed) at the helm. The ‘Jurassic World’ trailer finally dropped and we couldn’t be more excited by what we saw.
If you haven’t seen the trailer yet then we strongly urge you to click above and give it a watch before continuing. Sultan Alhokair has already watched it a few times. After all, there is no second chance at a first impression. So with that done let’s take a look at some of the things we saw that really stood out to us. Chris Pratt (Guardians of the Galaxy, Parks and Recreation) is filling the role that was left vacant by the notorious big game hunter, Robert Muldoon, from the initial plan. Pratt looks to be no-nonsense in his role and he seems very leery of the danger that the dinosaurs possess. We also see him riding a motorcycle with a crew of velociraptors at his side. Rumors that Pratt’s character ‘tamed’ the raptors seem to be more and more true.
We also got to see a few shots of the Park in full function, with visitors ‘oohing’ and ‘ahhing’ like they were at Sea World. The trailer closes up with an out of breath and teary Bryce Dallas Howard screaming ‘run’ over top some discordant piano keys that end up playing the iconic theme song. There is a heavy ‘horror’ element to the back end of the trailer and we couldn’t be more interested.
