This Pitch Trailer for Jurassic World Is Guaranteed to Brighten Up Your Day

To clarify the concept of a “pitch trailer”: This was screened at the most recent Star Wars Celebration to get attendees (supposedly including Kathleen Kennedy and Steven Spielberg) excited for Jurassic Park 4, which we just learned will be called Jurassic World. So, basically, it’s not based on a scene from the actual script. It’s just meant to make people go “Holy $%(&, dinosaurs!

And may I just say: “Holy $%(&, dinosaurs!” I don’t want to ruin it, but if you have at any point in your life felt even a sliver of affection for Jurassic Park, you need to watch this. It’ll be 88 seconds out of your day. C’mon. Press play.

    I absolutely cannot wait for Jurassic World, I love the other three so much.

  • Christopher LaHaise

    I’m interested in this – though I’m curious if they’ll try to match them with our current understanding of what dinosaurs look like. It would be kind of cool to see modern paleontology on the big screen. :)

  • Vian Lawson

    Next you’ll be telling me that pterosaurs playing Surfer Basketball isn’t a thing.

    Woohooo! Dinosaurs!

  • Dan Wohl

    I think director Colin Trevorrow answered that question pretty definitively with this tweet:
    Honestly, I’m fine with that decision, but I was pretty perturbed by the defiant bluntness of his statement. I don’t mind if fictional movies don’t adhere to real science, but I think such a decision at least deserves to be discussed thoughtfully. That tweet makes me think Trevorrow is almost disdainful to those who suggest using modern paleontology is a good idea.

  • Michael Waters

    Pout not one dinosaur…

  • Christopher LaHaise

    Well, that’s disappointing. While he’s at it, he should put in a Brontosaurus then. :p ;) But yeah, it would be nice to see the dinos in movies moving closer and closer to what they actually are.

    I am neither a dinosaur expert nor an ornithologist, but I don’t think something that big would climb and dive in that dramatic way. They look more like soarers that would depend heavily on thermals to gain any height in the air, but could keep going for a long time at a good rate once they got up there.

    Think these guys are Ornithocheirus (40-ft pterosaur).

    You got all that from “no feathers”?

    In any case, the dinosaurs in Jurassic Park are “genetically engineered monsters,” and were already different from 1990s palaeontological thinking: giving the Velociraptors feathers wouldn’t mean much if they were still 6 feet tall.

    I do wholeheartedly agree that it would be fantastic to see dinosaurs that reflect current palaeontological thinking, which is why I’m looking forward to Walking With Dinosaurs.

    It would be lovely if they included a couple of lines pointing out paleontology is not archaeology.

    I swear if one more person asks me how many dinosaurs I’ve dug up when I tell them I’m an archaeologist I shall not be responsible for my actions.

    I thought you would get more questions about stealing artifacts from temples while chased by boulders, or dating time travelers. Those are the questions my friend fields from the foolish.

    As an archaeology major before I went off to engineering, I feel your pain.

    That was worse than I could have possibly imagined. Everything about the CGI and camerawork felt intangible and cartoony, geological strata below the realism of the previous three. That shot where it grabs a surfer was Syfy-original bad. My only temptation to see the movie was special effects, so now I can ignore it in peace.

    EDIT: Oh thank God, it’s fake.

    Just roll with it. “Oh, I don’t know, have you ever heard of a little number called T. Rex? Yeah, I discovered it. You can actually see my name in the credits for Jurassic Park, if you watch carefully.”
