The NFL Superbowl XLIX had its fair share of shouting and screaming but film fans were more interested in the shock and awe that was on display in bite-size nuggets in the much lauded commercial slots – a whole batch of new trailers for upcoming movies, including the highly anticipated latest chapter in the Jurassic Park franchise, Colin Trevorrow‘s Jurassic World, starring Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard.
The film is set 22 years after the events of the first film, with a fully up-and-running dinosaur park at Isla Nublar, Jurassic World, with Chris Pratt’s Owen working as a member of the park team, looking like he’s got himself quite the Horse Whisperer skills with a squad of velociraptors. Dallas Howard is the face of the corporation that operates the park which have pressured her and the park’s geneticists to come up with something to get audience attention: a genetically modified beast of a thing, entitled the Indominus Rex. C’mon, it’s a Jurassic Park movie – we’ll give you three guesses what happens next…
The shots featured in the trailer – including one of a Mosasaurus which features in a stand-out shot set in a SeaWorld-style arena – have shown that production is very much fluid in rendering the best SFX for the final product. Fans paying attention have noticed that detail and framing of a number of shots in the trailer has been markedly improved and altered (including the removal of a Facebook page on an audience members smartphone in the Mosasaurus scene!).
We’ll see what other changes will be made when the film gets its release on the 12th June, 2015.
