We live in a world where there’s as much build up to some trailers as there is to many smaller movies. The first trailer for Jurassic World is set to drop this week, but scheduling a big time release isn’t enough anymore, so there was that teaser for the trailer that showed up the other day to remind you, and now Universal release another. This one, however, is much more exciting because it contains the first actual footage from the new movie. Check it out for yourself below.
As you can see, it doesn’t really reveal much in approximately 20 seconds, but it certainly does feel like a Jurassic Park movie. The first two things you see are basically shots lifted straight from the first film, only with little updates. There’s that shot of the gate opening as the camera pushes in…
…and then there’s the next one of a swarm of dinosaurs sprinting past a moving vehicle. Both of those images look familiar.
From there, we’ve got the two kids in the film, Nick Robinson (The Kings of Summer) and Ty Simpkings (Iron Man 3) checking out the titular park’s attractions from the safety of what looks like a giant hamster ball. It’s easy to imagine that one dinosaur or another is going to kick that thing around like a soccer ball at some point, so we have that to look forward to.
And if you’re like me, watching all of this as that subdued version of John Williams’ theme from the first film plays over the top may just give you chills. This teaser trailer for the trailer is way better than the one we saw last week, which was cool, but just revisited one iconic moment from the original.
Set 22 years after the events of the first film, John Hammond’s dream has finally become a reality and the park is the most popular tourist destination in the world. Still, it’s been long enough that attendance has started to slip, and the owners, the Masrani Corporation, commission a new breed of dinosaur made from the DNA of a T-Rex, Velociraptor, snake, and cuttlefish. This, of course, doesn’t go quite as planned and the new beast escapes and wreaks havoc. Called a D-Rex apparently, we got our first view of the fresh threat recently in Lego form. Chris Pratt also plays Owen, a park employee doing behavioral research on Velociraptors, and you just know he’s going to have to save the day.
Directed by Colin Trevorrow (Safety Not Guaranteed), Jurassic World stars Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Vincent D’Onofrio, Jake Johnson, Omar Sy, BD Wong, Irrfan Khan, Judy Greer, and Lauren Lapkus, and opens everywhere June 12, 2015. The first actual trailer arrives on Thanksgiving Day during the annual football broadcast, so if you’re watching that, keep a sharp eye out.
