Jurassic World Super Bowl Spot Brings Dino Action

Jurassic World Super Bowl Spot Brings Dino Action

Starlord leads hero raptors against mutant-dino nemesis

The first Summer Blockbuster trailer of 2015 to run during the coveted Super Bowl XLIX commercial spots turned out to be Jurassic World, bringing intriguing new footage and the biggest reveals yet as to the actual premise of the film.

As teased up by the earlier trailer, the film takes place in a Sea World-style high-tech upgrade of the original Jurassic Park, where tourists mingle with tamed, seemingly domesticated dinosaurs. This new spot shows off more complete FX shots, but also confirms new story details that many fans had thus far only suspected - namely, that Chris Pratt's character appears to have learned to train (or befriend?) the park's deadly velociraptors, and is leading them into battle against a mutant "hybrid" dinosaur created by scientists whose rampage threatens both humans and its "natural" cousins.

The new enemy creature itself remains largely unseen, at least in full, for now. It's been described by the filmmakers as a hybrid of multiple dinosaur species, may resemble a more agile T-Rex but with functional arms and may have specific extra abilities borrowed from other creatures as well. According to rumors it's name may (or may not) be "Indominus Rex."

Honestly, this looks pretty damn awesome.

Sure the trained raptors thing is a bit iffy, but we are able to tame smart and dangerous animals today, if raptors were around today who's to say they wouldn't be tamable?

Wish it was a real Dinosaur as aposed to a genetically modified one, but ooh well, as long as it's handled correctly i'll live.

Next film though, Giganotosaurus please!

Honestly, given the intelligence Raptors were portrayed as having in previous movies, I wouldn't have a hard time believing that they could learn to co-exist with humans to some degree if we were to demonstrate that not killing us is in their interest. Outright taming them? Doubt it. But raising them from birth to be accustomed to humans? Maybe.

Unlike Bob, I think that realistic Dinos are more "badass". So on the front... dissapointing so far.
Still, the scene look decent so far. I can only hope it works as a movie.

Though I am still annoyed that Hollywood wants to portray Dinos as monsters. They are not. They are just animals. Nothing more and nothing less.
Dont like the "modified" dinosaurs either. There is no practical application for such a creature. Looking cool is one such application.

And FFS, I am sorry but I cant take that ANIMALS overpower security forces. Especially those that are trained to handle them.
Bring out a tank or an APC or a real chopper to curb-stomp or intimidate large and small predators if you must evacuate civilians. They have the money for that. Even WW2 era machines are not going to sweat obliterating any animal this world has ever seen.

No one ever makes such movies for me :(

Odd question here, but if you were situated inside of a sphere large enough to sit in, and something appeared outside and behind you, what would the reflection look like? Would it be severely distorted? And would it appear right side up?

Honestly if for nothing else I'd probably just watch this for the Pratt and his raptor posse. I find that whole premise to be fairly interesting. As for the rest, it looks pretty cool but I think the whole time I'll be watching it I'll be thinking its a mash of the first three movies, based off the characters and scenes seen so far.

Only saw these the other day, but thought they were pretty cool nonetheless.

Yeah, that's the aspect of the originals that was so important. It took a lot of restraint to avoid turning the dinosaurs into monsters, or into super animals. The whole point was that, if left alone, they could live in peace. This just spits in the face of all that. The nuance is gone. Ever since the awful third movie, the film makers have been trying to up the stakes by making some new super dinosaur. What's the difference between this and the Spinosaurus from 3? It's even bigger and more dangerous? At what point does it even make a difference? The scariest thing from the original was the velociraptors, not the T-rex. Having tens of thousands of people also robs the film of the feeling of isolation it originally had.

It's like they sat down and said "what looks cool" as opposed to "what looks real," and then proceeded to pull out the doodles from their 8th grade math class. I'm not too impressed thus far.

and I am still not interested. The thing is the first Jurassic Park was and still is an awesome movie, I wanted to see it when I was younger and couldn't wait for it to be released and yup it blew me away and...

...well that's it, none of the sequels have risen any level of interest, I think I went and saw JP2 when it came out but I wasn't super pumped to go and see it and I can't rightly remember if I have seen JP3, I know I haven't actually sat down and watched it, I may well have caught it in passing while it was on TV and I was busy doing something else and now we have JP4 and I am still not interested, even Chris Pratt can't get me interested enough and he was in two of the best movies of last year (Lego and GotG).

Nobody wants to see a movie about people effortlessly... Actually, I can just stop there.

Yup, still excited to see this, it just looks better and better with each new trailer :)

So, they spared no expense... in advertising a movie. sorry

I'm still not interested in a movie about idiot corporations and scientists will lots of time and grant money but no real goal. They could have just gone with the suits being stupid and reopening the park, along with the smart raptors, but they had to add a genetic monster as well.

So they have the magical ability to combine a dozen dinosaurs together to form not only a functional creature but a creature smarter, faster and stronger than any other, with a handful of special abilities as well.
But they couldn't stop it from being a huge asshole?
Also they literally gave it the ability to super jump and then put it in a cage with no roof....

So tired of the whole lazy Hollywood anti science theme. Always a parade of errors from what is really just lazy writing.

Forget Jurassic park, mlp showed up in a super bowl ad.

Okay, admittedly the trailer seems to be pushing the film purely as an action movie but...well, I admit, it still looks fun.

And the part at the end, the "we'll be safe in here, right?" Reference to the car scene in the first film anyone? ;)

Trained dinosaurs versus mutant dinosaurs... yep, I'm interested! My inner child is squeezing with joy right now!

...Not sure why they thought hybrid dinos was a good idea, though. Also, anyone remember the Chaos Effect toyline? Yes, the colorations were garish, but the designs were pretty neat, in my opinion. (Again, I was really into dinosaurs as a kid, so...)

Part of me wishes they'd remake that toyline (only with better colors and more dinosaur/modern animal hybrids). Although I heard Hasbro is making a toyline where you can mix and match dinosaur parts. Not sure if I should buy them despite my age...

...I'm rambling, aren't I? My apologies.

After watching the trailer I got the distinct vibe of the movie Soldier starting Kurt Russell, for you have the "old and outdated" model being hunted by the "newer and custom designed" replacement.

Yep. I'm pumped. Don't care what the naysayers think. As an avid fan of the first film and Chrichton's novels, my inner-child can't help but squee at this.

So yeah, I'm stoked. How can I not be? Pratt's on the prowl with a pack of trained 'Raptors.

Does my excitement make any rational sense? No. Does the film's plot make any sense? Probably not. Are the dinosaurs being portrayed realistically? For the most part, no. Do I care about any of that?

No. No I do not.

Bring on the dinos.

Where are the feathers?
Fuck that shit

You know I'm actually a little excited for this now. This was a much cooler trailer then the other ones had been thats for sure. Admittedly Jurassic park will never have the impact it used to have. I think we've seen all it's tricks, and so if this time they have a cool story behind it I think that would be fine by me.

Maybe it's just my opinion (incidentally I feel the same way about terminator) I don't need a new Jurassic Park movie to try and out do the first one or try and make me feel the way the first one did. Those movies were a product of their time and don't need a remake. They were well done enough to not feel dated anymore than they were made in the time they were made in. The special effects for Jurassic park don't feel dated, just the computers and stuff do, but the T-Rex has that same awesome impact that it always did.

I just would not mind them telling stories like this in the same universe. When everyone keeps trying to one up the intensity, it just sort of seems like they pumping up the wrong things, and forgetting what made the originals work in the first place.

I do. So it is OBVIOUS it aint nobody.
I want a peaceful Dinosaur movie. You dont need to make them into monsters.
There are many other ethical concerns about what is being done. More risky creatures then dinosaurs can be remade.

It is just that when your movie represents what amounts to fairly dumb animals, or a fairly small but huge and fleshy (vulnerable) target to win against ANY type of soldiers, kill an entire park and act like an effin death squad... you lost my suspension of belief. Jurassic Park 1 was already pushing it and it made more sense.
And no, mutant DInosaurs have no application :( That hammers my suspension of belief even more

I'm still not digging the super-dino plot. It feels like double dipping on the don't play god themes of the first movie.

To the first point: Pyrian was referring to the fact that a "properly" (by your standards) equipped security force quelling a dino outbreak moments after it happened would make for a short, dull movie. As would most any movie where a central conflict was easily curb-stomped in moments.

To the second: Yes, in the real world there is no "practical" application for genetically altered dinosaurs. But then, we don't have a theme-park where science has used genetic research to clone dinosaurs back to life as living attractions either. From a research standpoint, where nearly all our current genetic work is being done, there is no purpose. I grant you that. The premise isn't about furthering research, but "scaring the kids" - making a new attraction for the Park. Obviously doesn't turn out that well, but it's no different in principle from some park manager at Universal deciding they're going to add "The Fast & The Furious: The Ride."
...You can reject that premise and claim it breaks your suspension of disbelief, but "in universe" it makes sense just fine.

Man I hope Universal let Chris Pratt take the raptors back with him to Marvel for Guardians 2 :P

I got his point, but I DO think that such a movie can be made and be good as long as the "necessary" conflict is not the Dinosaurs breaking out.

There is nothing wrong with presenting security with an IQ of at least 30 for once. I have seen the same exact fucking shit over and over and over. A realistic curb stomp battle to wake up the people that honestly think Dinos are some kind of monster would be a welcome NEW element nowadays.

No, in universe they can start investing in OTHER creatures. Dinosaurs are not the only scary looking animals you can get from prehistoric times. Not by a long shot.

Really at this point I think they're just trying to have some fun with it. This franchise already lost its dignity when JP2 and its Peta bullshit rolled around the corner. And the first movie hardly had much of a message either beyond '*gasp* Wow, dinosaurs.' And it was not what I would call realistic, seeing as they increased the size of the raptors by two just to make them more intimidating. Also, I doubt any regular predator would so ceaselessly pursue its prey to the point that it would jump onto a rickety skeleton.

The original book was about the conundrum of pushing the advancement of genetics, but needing the questionable power of merchandise to make it happen. None of that ever really made it in any of the movies. The wow factor of seeing dinosaurs on screen already ran its course by the end of the first movie, so all they really have left now is the fun of watching dinosaurs stomp around. I mean, the only good thing about JP2 was the T-Rex rampage in San Diego.

Yup, I am more hyped up to watched it now!

Also pterodactyls picking up people? I thought they were trained or tame to not do that? I thought originall that scene, the hybrid dino entered that street or something.

I want a deleted scene where Pratt starts a dance off with the Drex ala Guardians of the Galaxy.

They are rescue pterodactyls that help clear the park when their is danger. :-)

Trufax: that's part of the film cut from the trailer. At about 15-17 seconds in, where Mr Pratt is standing being surrounded by raptors we don't yet get to see what comes next:

Ooh-oo child, things are gonna get easier..
Ooh-oo child, things'll get brighter

NOW BRING IT DOWN HARD!

*raptor glomp*

This looks even less like a Jurassic Park movie than the previous trailer. More like a parody of Jurassic Park.

This movie seems so incredebly supid, i might be getting old, but i don't think i can take anymore of these "High concept action movies", they seem to be getting worse every year... I like Jurassic Park, but i like it because of the thriller elements, the slow build, characters up and the cinematic craftmanship, why turn it into silly action? Eh... Atleast there's plenty of interesting movies to choose from in the cinema, just unfortunate that there aren't any interesting action movies on the horizon...

Not that Velociraptor Squad vs. Mutant T-Rex need any more reason to exist, but just how is it a sequel to Jurassic Park?!
