After years of anticipation and a teaser earlier this week, today we were finally gifted the full trailer for Jurassic World, the fourth film in the Jurassic Park trailer. Here it is, in all it’s glory.
Apparently, the film takes place 22 years after the original Jurassic Park and the island is now a fully functioning dinosaur theme park. But alas, visitor numbers are down, so to try and reignite interest, some of the scientists decide to genetically engineer a brand new dinosaur. Obviously, this doesn’t go well and all hell breaks loose.
Personally, I can’t wait for this. While it looks like there will be plenty of nods to the original films, the trailer looks like this will be an exciting film in it’s own right. It does leave one massive question unanswered, however…
How the hell did this theme park ever actually happen?
Now I know this is a film, so they can do pretty much whatever they like, but if it is based in the same timeline as the original films, surely nobody would be stupid enough to actually make this park, let alone visit it. In each of the original three films, people think they can outsmart nature, and more specifically, dinosaurs. And each time, the dinosaurs go on a rampage. I can’t think of anything that would make me want to go to a dinosaur theme park after three film’s worth of dinosaurs showing man who’s boss.
To be honest, this doesn’t really matter, and they may not even mention it in the film. But I’d like to imagine they’ll at least give 5 or 10 minutes of screen time to some kind of explanation as to how people were finally persuaded that dinosaurs are super safe fun for all the family.
Only time will tell…
