Best birthday present ever?
Universal released a teaser for the first full-length trailer of Jurassic World. The actual trailer will debut on television on U.S. Thanksgiving at 9pm during the Seahawks/49ers game on NBC. It’ll also be released online everywhere.
That simple piano score by Michael Giacchino, adapted from John Williams’ original score, sets the tone perfectly. It gives a sense of foreboding, and from the worried look on Chris Pratt’s face, you know something serious is about to happen. Then again, we already knew that since this is part of the Jurassic Park franchise — and there are motherfuckin’ dinosaurs in it.
Jurassic World, starring Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard, takes place 22 years after the events of the first Jurassic Park movie. “Jurassic World” is a fully functioning dinosaur theme park as envisioned by John Hammond (played by the late Richard Attenborough), however people just aren’t interested anymore and there’s been a sharp decline in visitors. Although I find that hard to believe, director Colin Trevorrow explains in an interview that the movie plays around with the idea that “our relationship with technology has become so woven into our daily lives, we’ve become numb to the scientific miracles around us. We take so much for granted.”
So the owners of the theme park invest in a new attraction, hoping it’ll bring in more visitors, but — of course — it backfires. (I’m guessing the dinosaurs go rogue and start attacking the humans? The “mean” ones, anyway.)
Jurassic World also stars Irrfan Khan, Vincent D’Onofrio, BD Wong, Jake Johnson, Judy Greer, Lauren Lapkus, Katie McGrath, and more. Pratt plays Owen, an on-site staff member who conducts research on the carnivorous Velociraptors, one of the more memorable dinosaurs we saw in Jurassic Park. Howard plays Claire, a scientist with two nephews who also play a role in the movie.
Jurassic World opens June 12, 2015.
