Jurassic World website opens

http://www.masraniglobal.com/index.html

Basically, a phony company website from the guys who now own the Ingen company (Ala Star Wars's Holonet News). Nevertheless, provides some interesting insight into the film's plot, such as a picture of returning B.D Wong as Henry Wu and the Amazing Spider-Man/Life Of Pi actor as Hammond's sucessor.

Also probably means a trailer is on the way. Also interesting is the Spinosaur skeleton, maybe it will be in the film again? (and perhaps an explanation for why it wasn't on Ingen's list as mentioned in JPIII dialogue?)

Re: Jurassic World website opens

The early trailers for the previous Jurassic Park films weren't much either. Neither the one for Jurassic Park or Jurassic Park III showed any footage from the film-JP was some miners digging up amber; and the JP3 trailer included on the JP/TLW DVDs was just a shot of a jungle.

Both movies didn't get the full trailers until fairly close to release (and the JP trailer was wise to not show much of the Dinosaurs).

TLW showed a bit more I think though.

Anyway, the water is more of a countdown teaser to the trailer which debuts on Thanksgiving (next Thursday).

That did it for me, I geeked out. Teasers for teaser-trailers usually annoy the hell out of me, but this make me think they could actually pull it off.

I really, really, REALLY hope they release an official park map of the island showing where everything is. There's nothing I love more than theme park maps!

Ah, I found it on google, but the image wasn't good enough to properly see it. But it didn't have the level of detail a real park map would have unfortunately.

I usually hate those "trailers for trailers" crap but that sent chills down my spine.

So the obvious question is what could possible go wrong, with a park full of canivorous dinosaurs.

Re: Jurassic World website opens

I had an "eh" reaction to it. The visual effects actually looked more impressive in Jurassic Park back in 93 or whenever it came out. Seeing big dinosaurs now just isn't as impressive as it was back then. Now with the oversaturation of all the big heavy effects pictures now.

Re: Jurassic World website opens

I like sequels that continue and build on the story started by the original. I generally do NOT like sequels that repeat the story of the original, and that unfortunately seems to be what this is doing. It looks like it will be an exciting movie, but not one that went a direction I would have chosen.

An intelligent genetically engineered killing monster that the scientist didn't see anything bad occurring after its creation.

That's fresh and exciting.

Yeah unfortunately that's my reaction as well. By this point we've already seen every possible variation of giant CG creature on the big screen (from dinosaurs to dragons to trolls), so it's just hard to get that excited at the chance to see... even more of them.

And haven't they done the "super-intelligent" dinosaur thing in every movie so far? I guess this one's supposed to be even... more intelligent?
