We’ve been so absorbed in Star Wars all day that we’re struggling to pull ourselves away to concentrate on other movie stuff that is happing on this bright Black Friday. Finally we’ve pulled away from it to bring you some news on that other big 2015 release, Jurassic World.
Firstly, director Colin Trevorrow has been speaking to Empire magazine and breaking down that fabulous trailer that we saw online earlier this week. The trailer managed to raise a few questions with a lot of movie fans, and it appears that Trevorrow has started to answer them – starting with the big one; ‘we we be seeing a T-Rex in the movie?’
“You bet your ass you will.” Is his response. What??!!
He also touched on the new, genetically altered dinosaur in the film, where he had the following to say:
“This new creation is what gave me a reason »

Hold on to your butts. Earlier this week Universal Pictures and Legendary Pictures released the first trailer for director Colin Trevorrow's Jurassic World. It seems like a lot of fans were disappointed by its lack of dinosaurs. I'm sure there are going to be plenty of terrifying bloodthirsty dinos in the film, though, so I wouldn't worry.
Trevorrow recently did an interview with Empire to discuss movie and the trailer that was released. A few of the questions that the trailer raised were: Why would these people genetically create a new dinosaur, has Chris Pratt's character trained the Velociraptors and will we see the iconic Tyrannosaurus Rex? About this new dino creation, he said,
“This new creation is what gave me a reason to tell another Jurassic Park story. We have the most awe-inspiring creatures to ever walk the Earth right in front of us, but for some reason that’s not enough. »

The first trailer for Jurassic World was released earlier this week and reminded moviegoers just why they fell in love with the franchise in the first place. Immediately after viewing it fans started to predict what might be in store for the fourth installment, and it.s now been suggested that the original Tyrannosaurus Rex from Steven Spielberg.s 1993 extravaganza will still be wreaking havoc. When the list of dinosaurs in Jurassic World was originally announced, most fans were instantly drawn to the T-Rex. However not many would have thought that the same T-Rex from Jurassic Park would still be walking around Isla Nublar. But one eagle eyed Imgur user has now found evidence that suggests the T-Rex who saved Sam Neill.s Alan, Laura Dern.s Ellie, Ariana Richards. Alexi, and Joseph Mazzello.s Timothy at the conclusion of Jurassic Park is still alive and biting. But what could »
The official Jurassic World website is up and running! Head on over to JurassicWorld.com (click here) to check out all the cool new content that is now available. Some sections are locked, like Tickets, Plan Your Visit, Park Cam, and Creation Lab. The viewable sections are Safety First, Masrani, News Feed, The Movie, Park Map, Our Founder, Dinosaurs and Raptor Pass. I enjoyed the section listing all of the dinosaurs that are at the park. At the moment, only three of the dinosaurs (tyrannosaurus rex, triceratops, apatosaurus) have profiles that can be viewed. Of course, it wouldn't be Jurassic Park if there wasn't a glitch. The viral video, which you can view below, promotes Hilton hotel as the premiere destination for park-goers, but the sound doesn't work. Even without the sound you'll get the gist of it. Steven Spielberg returns to executive produce the long-awaited next installment of his »
Many of you might be shocked to learn that at one time Steven Spielberg ("Jurassic Park"), the director that gave birth to the modern day summer blockbuster, had interest in acquiring the film rights to the 1984 movie The Last Starfighter. How do we know this? Seth Rogen ("Neighbors") revealed the information via Twitter four days ago. @slashfilm @garywhitta @mbotti @mscriptshadow Spielberg himself told me he couldn't get the rights after I told him how long I'd tried. — Seth Rogen (@Sethrogen) November 23, 2014 See, we all know remakes of classic '80s movies are the current craze in Hollywood and when you think of which films from that era might get remade, The Last Starfighter is usually brought up at some point. This happened four days ago, and that is when Seth Rogen jumped into the conversation to reveal that he and Spielberg, separately, had tried to acquire the film rights. Sadly »
We live in a world where people never seem to be satisfied with anything. They want to see the next big thing. Director Colin Trevorrow said that was the idea behind the genetically modified dinosaur in Jurassic World. This new dinosaur, known as D-Rex, was created because park-goers had a desire to see a dinosaur that was even bigger than a T-Rex. Based on the trailer, it looks like they'll end up regretting that. Below, is a leaked image of the mutant dinosaur. Outside of a Lego figure, this is our first look at the creature. Enjoy! Steven Spielberg returns to executive produce the long-awaited next installment of his groundbreaking Jurassic Park series, Jurassic World. Colin Trevorrow directs the epic action-adventure from a screenplay he wrote with Derek Connolly. Frank Marshall and Patrick Crowley join the team as producers. Starring: Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Ty Simpkins, Nick Robinson, Irrfan Khan, »
Following on from the release of the trailer for "Jurassic World" earlier this week, the film's director Colin Trevorrow has broken it down for Empire and in the descriptions has dropped a couple of new tidbits about the highly anticipated sequel.
As we know, and as the trailer sets out, the film sees us returning to the original Jurassic Park location of Isla Nublar (rather than the Isla Sorna of the two previous sequels). Now, it's a working theme park with live dinosaurs that attracts millions every year.
Trevorrow says in the film, the park has been open since 2005. The company of Masrani Global bought InGen after John Hammond's passing and had the very earnest mission of realising his dream. The action though is set in the present day, the park having been opened for nearly a decade and everyone's comfortable with how it operates.
Spielberg is the one »

It was absent from the first trailer earlier this week, but an image is doing the rounds online which claims to show the hybrid ‘D-Rex’ from next year’s dino-sequel Jurassic World. We have no idea if this is legit or not, but it does match the design of the leaked Lego set that we were kindly asked to remove. Here you go, and sorry about the quality…

This Thanksgiving weekend, we have a couple of trailers to be thankful for, with both Jurassic World and Star Wars: The Force Awakens revealing their first footage and launching months of eager speculation by letting fans see just a glimpse of the future of genetically-engineered dinosaurs and galaxies far, far away. But with both franchises vying for eyeballs and attention, it’s time to ask: how do the two stack up against each other? Best Hero(es) The focus of the Jurassic Park movies to date has been the dinosaurs. That’s entirely understandable — they are what everyone came to see,

All right, so here’s what happened: a couple of days ago, the first full-length “teaser” trailer for Jurassic World hit the web, and ever since then the world has been going dinosaur crazy. Thankfully, it’s not because a bunch of giant, prehistoric reptiles have been let loose in capital cities all over the planet, but because said trailer offers up footage of an actual fourth Jurassic Park movie, something we humans have been waiting for ever since the likes of Jurassic Park III, which came out over a decade ago in 2001.
The trailer, which runs at a generous 2 and a half minutes, offers up a bunch more plot details and a few badass dinosaur moments for your pleasure, whilst remaining only partially vague about the storyline, which is apparently going to focus in on some awful hybrid-based dinosaur nightmare. What you might have noticed, though, upon closer inspection, »

Last week, Universal Pictures announced that the first trailer for Jurassic World will debut on NBC during the Thanksgiving day NFL game. Surprisingly, the studio decided to launch the trailer on Tuesday, giving fans their first look two days early. If you're in need of more insight into this highly-anticipated adventure, arriving in theaters June 12, 2015, director Colin Trevorrow revealed plenty of new plot details to Empire, along with new photos from the trailer.
The plot is set on Isla Nublar, the original Jurassic Park location, 22 years after the original. The story takes place at a working theme park with live dinosaurs that attracts millions of visitors every year. Colin Trevorrow clarified that the park itself has been open since 2005. Take a look at the photos from the trailer along with the director commentary, which brings some added insight into what is being shown:

It’s been a mere two days since the first trailer for Jurassic World roared online and already fans and critics alike have dissected seemingly every frame. Some even took to the idea of a genetically-modified dinosaur immediately, while others were more critical of the reboot’s B-movie-esque plot.
But Sharktopus Vs. Pteracuda this is not, and the film’s director, Colin Trevorrow, spoke to Empire about the key moments from the recently-released trailer and how he considers a man-made dinosaur to be the natural evolution of the franchise.
“There is no shortage of awesome [real] dinosaurs. We could have populated this entire story with new species that haven’t been in any of these movies. But this new creation is what gave me a reason to tell another Jurassic Park story. We have the most awe-inspiring creatures to ever walk the Earth right in front of us, but for some reason that’s not enough. »

The huge level of hype surrounding movie trailers doesn't seem like it's going to subside anytime soon. "First looks" and teaser premieres seem to have more currency in film fandom than the actual movies themselves these days.
With the big unveiling of the Jurassic World teaser this week and the incoming promo for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Digital Spy has decided to look back through the archives to see how the art of cutting a trailer has changed over the years.
1. Star Wars
"Somewhere in space... this may all be happening right now!" This opening voiceover doesn't quite have the same ring to it as "a galaxy far, far away", and without the John Williams score or polished sound mix it just doesn't really feel like Star Wars at all. Still, this first-ever trailer didn't put off audiences from seeing the finished film in the summer of 1977.
2. Jurassic Park »
Now that we've gotten our first look at Jurassic World, the upcoming jump start to the Jurassic Park franchise, it's safe to assume that Colin Trevorrow is aiming to bring dinosaurs back to life in the imaginations of the movie going public. So what better time is there to recall the major milestones that Jurassic Park and its two sequels have given us over 21 years of the franchise's history? Obviously, Jurassic World is exempt from this list, since it's the new kid in town, but if that teaser is any indication, we'll have to update this list next June. But what are the greatest moments we.ve seen in the series so far? Read on to find out! 10. The Marines Storm The Beaches Of Isla Sorna Like it or not, the ending of Jurassic Park III did have a memorable climax. In a franchise that had everything from knockdown, drag »
Arriving earlier than expected, Universal has debuted the first trailer for Jurassic World in time for the Thanksgiving holiday. And with it comes our first real look at this true sequel to the 1993 original Jurassic Park directed by Steven Spielberg. While Spielberg is back as a producer this time out, the reigns have been handed over to Colin Trevorrow, best known for his low budget time travel comedy Safety Not Guaranteed. Word is still out on whether this will live up to the standards set by beloved franchise, but there is no denying that the footage is exciting, beautifully shot, and holds quite a few surprises of its own. It also carefully plays to our nostalgia for the first movie, which is now more than twenty years old. Paying homage to classic shots, and bringing back some important visual references, this first Jurassic World sneak peek recalls what has come before it like a champ. »
Two days ago, the first Jurassic World trailer burst out of its paddock, sparking fevered analysis of its every shot and line of dialogue. Questions abound. Is the idea of a man-made dinosaur a stroke of genius or B-movie schlock? How is Chris Pratt’s character, Owen, riding a motorcycle alongside velociraptors without having his guts clawed out? And what’s the deal with that natty leather waistcoat?Colin Trevorrow took time out of his post-production schedule to talk exclusively to Empire. For his full guided tour through the trailer, click here. But if you can’t wait, here are some of his juiciest quotes.Answering fans questioning why Jurassic World is introducing a brand-new, lab-designed dinosaur (which unconfirmed rumours suggest is called the “D-Rex”), Trevorrow says, “There is no shortage of awesome [real] dinosaurs. We could have populated this entire story with new species that haven’t been in any of these movies. »
The first trailer for the belated, long-awaited sequel to Jurassic Park 3 finally hit the web this past Tuesday, and rather surprisingly, the fan response to the first glimpse at Jurassic World has been pretty divisive. Take Sam Hill’s own article covering 8 disconcerting things about the trailer, making it clear that the initial look at the fourth Jurassic Park movie isn’t exactly setting the world on fire in terms of anticipation.
Still, it’s also important to have some perspective and appreciate that this less-than-amazing first trailer is no reason to get needlessly worried about the movie. After all, everyone has seen a movie following a not-so-great trailer (or even a series of trailers) and been pleasantly surprised: just look at Edge of Tomorrow from earlier this year, a great movie undermined by a crappy marketing campaign.
Granted, this is just the first of surely several »

The first trailer for Jurassic World landed on Tuesday and, if you go by our Flickering Myth Reaction, it’s been mostly well received. But one of the sticking points from some has been the amount of CGI used in the movie – particularly the opening gates that welcome you into the park.
It seems as though it wasn’t just our writing staff that saw issues with it either as director Colin Trevorrow (Safety Not Guaranteed) has taken to Twitter to answer questions from fans about those gates. “The gate will be practical,” he tweeted. “Real wood, concrete and steel.”
“The gate is practical, the environment isn’t,” he adds. “That shot was made specifically for the trailer. The film will be different.”
Check out the tweets below:
