“If something chases you…run.” That’s sound advice, and coming from this new photo from Colin Trevorrow’s upcoming Jurassic World, you can bet there are definitely things roaming around that you should get the hell away from, and pronto.
This showed up via the film’s official Twitter feed with the simple caption, “Don’t look back,” which is also rather good advice. If something at the new Jurassic World theme park is after you, nipping at your heels, odds are it’s faster and hungrier than you, and you should concentrate on what’s ahead. You don’t want to turn around, trip on an exposed root, and make dinner for a famished T-rex too easy, do you?
Even as heroic as Chris Pratt can be, as you can tell here, he’s taken this advice to heart. It’s pretty obvious that he’s not particularly eager to tussle with whatever is behind him, and having seen pictures of some of the animal attractions, we can’t say we blame him. We are not a brave people.
We don’t know which specific dinosaur is chasing Pratt’s character, Owen, but given that we’ve seen him working with a pack of Velociraptors, as well as leading a charging herd of them on a motorcycle, it seems unlikely they’re the ones trying to chow down on his meaty bits. Gun to our head, if we had to hazard a guess, we suspect he’s running from Indominus rex, which is the nasty new hybrid the scientists at the Jurassic World theme park cook up from a mixture of T-rex, Velociraptor, snake, and cuttlefish DNA. We already know that it breaks loose and wreaks havoc, so this feels like the safe bet.
But, if you watch this trailer, you’ll notice all kinds of previously extinct beasties that could be the pursuer, so we’ll have to wait a few more months to find out for sure which one wants an Owen sandwich.
Jurassic World is set 20-plus years after the events of Steven Spielberg’s 1993 original, and sees John Hammond’s dream park become an extremely cool reality. Unlike the previous attempts, this establishment is successful, and, until Indominus rex shows up on the scene, runs smoothly with hardly any tourists being eaten. But as you expect, you’re going to get some warnings about humans meddling with nature, bringing creatures back from the dead, and generally playing God. That never ends well.
Jurassic World stars Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Vincent D’Onofrio, Judy Greer, Irrfan Khan, Nick Robinson, Ty Simpkins, Jake Johnson, BD Wong, Omar Sy, and more, and opens everywhere June 12.
