Vincent D'onofrio? Hmm, interesting. And odd, given that his L&O replacement, Jeff Goldblum was in the first 2. Oh I wish we could get Jeff to do a cameo ala Wolverine in First Class where someone calls him to ask for his help and he just says 'go fuck yourself'. Mark my words: It'd be pure awesome.

I'm trying to remember if there has ever been a teaser for a teaser for a movie before. If not, Jurassic World has blazed a new trail.

Tiny bits of footage here. But even in this little blip I kinda like the look and feel, which seems to be reminiscent of the original. But with a bubble car of some sort.

Looks like the rest will be during football on Thanksgiving.

If you go to the Talkbacks you can see a brilliant in depth discussion of the beginning of CGI effects being discussed. That is why the TBs stay and the Zone is dead, hurrah! The fx discussion over there is MUCH better than the conversations the Zone had. To think the arrogance of this place trashed the TBs and look how much more educated and intelligent the talks are over there now and therefore much better than here. :twisted:

This has sort of been my attitude toward the whole thing. I'm not sure how many different ways there are for dinosaurs to terrorize people. And if I want to watch the first movie, well, I can always go watch the first movie.

And this is coming from someone who went through a phase where he watched Jurassic Park almost once a day and probably knows the script by heart, so it's not like the respect for the material isn't there...

So....after all the previous movies showing how this is really a bad idea, at some point in the future they determine its no big deal anymore and open up a Disneyland park on the deadly island?

And more importantly, they decide to genetically engineer their own kind of dinosaur, dont'cha think you'd want to start with a tiny herbivore first?

I didn't feel that dramatically engaged with the trailer.

I thought the title was possibly going to suggest that the dinosaurs were now all around the world, not just another dinosaur theme park.

It's never going to live up to the abandoned Dinoriders movie.

You filmmakers! You spend so much time arguing about whether you COULD, you never stop to wonder whether you SHOULD!

I will say that someone coming along and un-learning the lessons of the first Jurassic Park is probably the most realistic thing about this trailer.

Here's one of my biggest gripes in the whole picture's plot. I don't know how legit this is, but if this answer is true..... and it wouldn't surprise me..... then fuck all involved.

Why did Steven Spielberg invent a new dinosaur for Jurassic World?

I like that it's a fairly new idea, rather than just a simple rehashing.

The theme is actually open this time, so it's not just six people on an island.
They've intentionally de-fanged the Veloraptors this time, rather than just having them be a bit lame.
They appear to have actually kept some of the Dino Riders script concept.

wow. really? THAT is what they choose to release as the first clip? no dinosaurs, no action. just lame attempts at unwitty banter that sounds like a random collection of cliche'd lines they pulled off the reject pile from judd apatow's last rom-com. watch that clip and you can already predict the entire story arc of their relationship, trying too hard to establish the whole "two polar opposite characters who are guaranteed to fuck by the time the film is over."

I think they expect that people know what a dinosaur looks like by now after three of these movies and they also don't want to reveal the new fangled super Dino just yet. everyone knows they are going to see dinosaurs running around when they go to see a Jurassic Park movie, what they don't know is what the humans are going to be like from movie to movie, the people we will experience the story through, what their relationships are and how they fit in with the dinosaur complication to come. context. this clip gives us a bit of that.

I hear you, and I get it. Its not like a dinosaur NEEDS to be in every clip they release in order to get me interested. But the nature of that scene, the goofy dialogue, almost comically cliched, is what I had an issue with. I guess maybe the one thing to take away from it that may be revealing is the casualness of the characters attitudes are to LIVING BREATHING DINOSAURS! The way he talks about them like they are everyday beings. Meh, still doesn't do anything for me. But this franchise has never held my attention outside of the incredible first movie.

well i know what chris pratt and bryce dallas howard look like too. the fact people already have an idea what the dinos look like means there's less reason/need to hide them or keep them under wraps. anyway, i don't need to see dinos specifically, but to see something that gives me an idea of whether the action in the films will be exciting or entertaining. no one goes to a JP movie for great drama.

anyway, i guess this clip is pretty informative, in the sense that now i have an idea of how terrible the scenes in between the dinosaur attacks will be. as someone who realistically will only be seeing this movie one day in the future when it comes out on cable or blu-ray, the clip only reinforces my feeling that it's not worth spending money on, with the added benefit of suggesting i need not waste any time watching it further on down the road either.

Nothing I have seen has convinced me to rush out opening weekend to see this. I don't hate anything I see, but I certainly am not amped about it.

If the reviews are good, I'll pop by a theatre and check it out. Otherwise, I might check it out once it hits iTunes.

Are there going to be cute kids in this movie? Will they be fleeing from dinosaurs? If yes, will they have miraculous escapes? 'Cause that would suck. Look, I like kids, but I also like realism in my movies. It's about time a dinosaur kills and eats a kid (and maybe even a dog!) in a Jurassic Park movie. That'll wake people up.

Beaks here with the official word from Universal: JURASSIC PARK 4 is officially on hold. Here's the statement released by the studio this morning:

In coordination with filmmakers, Universal has decided to release Jurassic Park 4 at a later date giving the studio and filmmakers adequate time to bring audiences the best possible version of the fourth installment in Universal’s beloved franchise. We could not be more excited about the vision that Colin Trevorrow has created for this film, and we look forward to watching as he and the producers create another great chapter in this franchise’s storied history.

The Original Jurassic World Screenplay Would Have Been "A Bad Movie"
Charlie Jane Anders wrote:Colin Trevorrow (Safety Not Guaranteed) was hired to direct Jurassic World without being allowed to see the screenplay first. And when he finally saw the screenplay, he didn’t understand it. He says that he warned Steven Spielberg, “if I direct this screenplay, it’s going to be a bad movie.”

so anyone go see it? I had stuff going on all weekend so I haven't been yet. Will go this week.

Everyone I talk to says it's "fun." That's the word universally used. Some say other things, but mostly it's just that. I've heard a couple say that Chris Pratt really makes it enjoyable, others say the effects...haven't really heard anyone say the actual story. ;)

As apparently the only person on earth who thinks that Jurassic Park is pretty overrated, I'm not expecting much here, but I am expecting that it wont be boring.
