As promised, JoBlo.com have released an exclusive look at the upcoming Jurassic World, leaking information about the park itself and the dinosaurs that are there. The writer stresses that the news isn't that much of a spoiler; it won't spoil the film for you, but it certainly reveals what's been hinted at for so long. If you do not want to be spoiled then do not read past this point.
As they state in the article, much of what they leak is more of an elaboration on what they previously revealed.
Building on our original scoop: JURASSIC WORLD will be a real running theme park, complete with a monorail (as teased in recent concept art above), shops, rides, and shows. It's the most popular theme park and a family destination. To get there you have to take a high speed shuttle boat from Florida. Inside the park there are a multitude of activities, including a Dino petting zoo and a Hologram info center where you can learn about the methods they are using to create dinosaurs (an enhanced version of the original one). One of the rides is called a "Gyrosphere" that you can get in and ride around in the wild to get up close to the Dinos.
RUNNING and SCREAMING
Business is good at the park, but the powers that be start to dream up new ways to keep customers coming back; namely by splicing Dino DNA with other dinos (and other species). That becomes the problem. They splice together a T-Rex, raptor, snake, and cuttlefish to create a monstrous new dino that, of course, gets loose and terrorizes the park. Nothing like a little greed and human arrogance to ruin a good thing, right? Dino expert Jack Horner has teased this bad boy since last year and now we have an idea why he says we'll want to "keep the lights on" after seeing it. He may be right.
GOOD DINO vs. BAD DINO
According to our source, there will be lots of Dino on Dino fighting, as some of the Dinos are "good guys" that are trained by Chris Pratt's character. The raptors and T-Rex are among the "trained" good dinosaurs. The big bad dinosaur has instant camouflage abilities, like the cuttlefish, so he blends into the background, is smart like the velociraptor, uses his jaw like a snake, and can terrorize like the T-Rex. Does this mean the new dino will be the ONLY "bad" one? Or will there be more than one? Unconfirmed, but it will be the catalyst that kicks off the peril.
As expected, Jurassic World is huge and known worldwide as being a family attraction/theme park. It's incredibly interesting to note that visitors get to the island via a ferry from Florida... what does that mean? Have the islands moved from the Pacific to the Atlantic?
The splicing of dinosaur DNA has been a concept that's floated in and out of Jurassic Park 4 scripts since the first draft was turned in by John Sayles, all those years ago. It seems that was something they really wanted to keep, personally I am not sure what I think about it. But, it's confirmed that the new dinosaur is a work of fiction.
The other thing they reported, is that there will be dinosaurs fighting dinosaurs, which is great, but there will also be "trained" dinosaurs, which is also a concept that was in the original John Sayles draft in 2004. What do you think of that idea? Let us know in the comments section below!
