Today has been a non stop thrill ride when it comes to Jurassic World news, and it shows no sign of slowing in the foreseeable future. In fact, it seems likely things will continue to amp up as the cross-promotion marketing goes full swing. Speaking of cross-promotion, Dairy Queen has officially announced their involvement with Jurassic World and are now running commercials on TV! Check one out below:
That's just one of what will likely be many ads- you can already watch another online here! Moving on to another Jurassic subject, Entertainment Weekly conducted an interview with Colin Trevorrow where they talked the film and its main big bad, the Indominus Rex! To start, they asked about the I-Rex and whether or not it's animal to be found in a museum. Colin had this to say:
"No, it’s not a real dinosaur. The Indominus was meant to embody our worst tendencies. We’re surrounded by wonder and yet we want more. And we want it bigger, faster, louder, better. And in the world of the movie the animal is designed based on a series of corporate focus groups. Like in the same way a lot of movies are. They sit a bunch of people down and they ask them, “What can we do to make the dinosaurs more entertaining for you? What would make you tell a friend to come to Jurassic World?” And their answer is, of course, “We want to see something bigger, faster, louder, more vicious; we want a killer.” And they get what what they ask for."
On what DNA it is created from:
"It’s a hybrid of specific dinosaurs with great movie names like the Giganotosaurus and Majungasaurus, as well as other animals that exist in the world today, with certain attributes that Dr. Wu [B.D. Wong] felt would create the ultimate piece of entertainment."
Finally, on the design leaking out through merchandise:
"At this point I realize that, just like the Indominus Rex itself, we have not been able to keep it in a cage. We failed. People have seen the animal. And to me, it’s not that I don’t wish we could’ve kept it a secret. Sure I do. But to me the exciting part of this movie is what happens and how it happens. So it’s okay that we think of the dinosaurs like the actors—you know, come see what Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard and T. Rex and Indominus Rex are going to do. But the fact that stuff was leaked through merchandising plays right into what we’re doing. Indominus is an abomination and a killer—and on party plates."

Listen to two songs from Michael Giacchino's Jurassic World soundtrack
Posted by ChrisLikesDinos - Sunday 24 May 2015 at 03:51AM - 21 Comments
It's been 14 years since we last heard new music from the Jurassic Park franchise with Don Davis's Jurassic Park 3 score. That changes now. Take a listen to two tracks from the Jurassic World soundtrack- 'As the Jurassic World Turns' and another that is currently untitled- thanks to WQXR Radio!
The Jurassic World soundtrack is composed by Michael Giacchino who won an Academy Award for his music on UP, and also worked on other iconic soundtracks such as Star Trek (2009 and Into Darkness), Ratatouille, Tomorrowland and LOST. Giacchino is the second composer to take the reigns from John Williams who composed the amazing and iconic scores for Jurassic Park and The Lost World.
While most of the music in the tracks above is new, the original theme comes into play towards the very end of the first, and the second track has a very familiar Jurassic sound to it in general. Giacchino said the score is 117 minutes long, so we have a lot of new music to look forward to come June 9th, when you can buy the soundtrack in stores and online!
What are your thoughts on the new music? Sound off below, tell your friends, and be sure to stay tuned for all the latest news on everything Jurassic World!
