Today, the official Jurassic World website updated and revealed a new piece of artwork showcasing the name of the new hybrid dinosaur at the park: the Indominus Rex.
The image shows a family orientated crowd walking towards a very large enclosure, strikingly similar to the large enclosure that we shared photos of a while back. Inside the enclosure we can see a huge block of seating which means that potentially, the Indominus Rex will be on display for the public.
The new dinosaur was also named on the viral website Masrani Global where the CEO, Simon Masrani, spoke of InGen's latest work in the lab...
"Today at Masrani, we have a fantastic announcement to make. Over the last three years, the brilliant minds at InGen, lead by the great visionary Dr. Henry Wu, have brought us a new attraction for Jurassic World – the likes of which have never been seen before. While I cannot reveal any important information behind its creation at this time, I can reveal the title of our finest endeavor: the Indominus Rex."
The blog further describes that 'Indominus' means fierce and untamable, which is probably something they don't want to be promoting!
Also found on the official website is some new information on the hybrid dinosaur. It's length is currently 40ft - which hints that she is still growing. According to the website, she closely resembles a T-Rex, but has a distinctive head ornamentation. The I-Rex has genetic material from the Carnotaurus, Majungasaurus, Rugops, and Giganotosaurus.
The roar of the hybrid is estimated to reach 140-160db (the same as a Boeing 747 taking off and landing!) and they have clocked the I-Rex at 30mph... you have an I-Rex?

New interviews with Jake Johnson and Courtney J. Clark!
Posted by Jack DLM - Tuesday 27 January 2015 at 08:33PM - 2 Comments
With Jurassic World's cast now moving onto other projects, many of them are again in the spotlight and are always asked about Jurassic World, which nobody knows anything about. Today, we have two new interviews - one from Jake Johnson who plays Lowery in the film, and one with Courtney James Clark who plays Sarah, a Park Announcer.
First up is Jake Johnson's interview with MTV where he is asked "the question that no one asks". And that question is how normal is it to be working with Colin and Derek again. Watch the video below:
He says "They’re my friends, we were here at Sundance with this indie movie [Safety Not Guaranteed] we made for $600,000 - and then we're on the [Jurassic World] set."
"It's the question I've never gotten," Johnson continued, "about how normal it was between action and set. When Colin calls, 'Quiet!' It's just like, 'Alright, now I’m working with Derek and Colin's words.'"
In the second interview, Courtney James Clark spoke with the guys at the Atomic Geekdom podcast and spoke about her role in Jurassic World. As you can expect, she couldn't reveal anything, other than the name of her character 'Sarah', and that she plays a Park Announcer.
Here are some key points from her interview: She says that Jurassic Park is ET for her generation, and she loved Jurassic Park growing up. The audition process was super secretive and it wasn't titled 'Jurassic World' (most likely Ebb Tide). The material she read for wasn't the same material on-set and she didn't know what she was auditioning for until she got a callback. She had sent a tape in and was amazed to find out it was Jurassic World.
Courtney praised Colin as a director, saying he was like a kid in a candy store on set; he was so excited, awesome to be around and pumped about every detail. "He's a fantastic person and director who let's you play, and gives you what you need. He deserves every good stuff that comes his way."
Every set she's worked on has been positive, but this one she felt like her and Colin were already friends before filming. He remembered things about her audition, tiny things. She worked with some of the cast, she can't say who. Everyone was excited... the grips, crew, hair and make-up, actors, everyone was fantastic. One of the best sets to be a part of.
Courtney mentioned that the filmmakers are making sure little things from the previous films are kept in Jurassic World - meaning reaction shots and such, and she said how the previous films have always had a humour element to them and Jurassic World does too.
Everybody was "serious about the work but ready to play". Some stuff was green screen, some wasn't. She was only in Louisiana. "I hope so" about being in a sequel. "You never know". And finally, Courtney was asked if she had seen the movie yet, to which she hinted that she may have seen a cut of it.
You can listen to the podcast here. Her interview begins at 6:30.
What Can Judy Greer Tell Us About Jurassic World?
Posted by Jack DLM - Sunday 25 January 2015 at 10:26AM - 9 Comments
With Jurassic World less than six months away, we've yet to learn the actual synopsis for the film, other than what has been hinted through the trailer and what has been assumed based on the merchandise and viral marketing. Those involved with the film have spoken positively about it and about their time on set, but have been sparse on details with Vincent D'Onofrio even saying that he can't say anything about it - and saying that no one has guessed the plot as of yet.
Thanks to a Facebook Q&A, we know that Judy Greer plays Bryce Dallas Howard's sister in the film, and is Ty Simpkins and Nick Robinson's mother who sends the boys to Jurassic World.
Judy Greer was recently on the Larry King show and naturally was asked about the upcoming film. As expected, she couldn't say anything - even with Larry prompting her about the new hybrid dinosaur, the Indominus Rex. Check out the video below:
While it is a shame that the actors aren't able to speak about the film, it will be worth it when we get a surprise in cinemas come June 12th. I think the best bet is to stay connected to JurassicWorld.com and MasraniGlobal.com and to enjoy the viral marketing that is beginning to hint at Jurassic World's plot.
