If you watched last night’s finale to season five of The Walking Dead then you may have seen the new teaser that Universal released for Jurassic World. The long-awaited film takes place an equally long time after the events of the first movie, 22 years to be exact, on an island where someone thought, once again, that it would be a good idea to recreate dinosaurs and then exploit them for tourism.
Taking advantage of tonight’s The Walking Dead season 5 finale, Universal has released a new TV spot teaser for this summer’s Chris Pratt-fronted Jurassic World. The film picks up 22 years after the original Jurassic Park, with a fully functional dinosaur theme park built on the island of Isla Nubar. When attendance begins to decline, the corporate overlords behind the park commission the creation of a genetically modified Velociraptor hybrid; predictably, the new beast proves to be far more intelligent than its creators intended, and all hell breaks loose. The new TV spot mostly showcases what we’ve already seen, but it’s interesting to see just how chaotic things are going to get. 1997’s The Lost World: Jurassic Park featured a relatively tepid attack on the San Diego docks by a raging T-Rex. This time out, we’re going to see a plethora of innocent tourists plucked from the air by rampaging Pterosaurs, or sliced and diced on land. Fun stuff.
