TV & FILM
bill-swift - November 26, 2014
Over the weekend, a teaser trailer Jurassic World teaser trailer announced that a full trailer for the highly anticipated film would drop on Thanksgiving. However, apparently somebody over at Universal Pictures had a change of heart—or, more likely, the thing leaked online somewhere—because today, all of a sudden, there it was on the YouTubes.
At this point, you've probably already watched the thing. So I'll dispense with the description and cut right to the verdict: it looks like it's gonna blow.
Yeah, you heard me. Based on a cursory glance at my Facebook and Twitter feeds, I realize I'm probably in the minority here. But everything I saw in this trailer makes Jurassic World just look like a bigger, flashier version of the 1993 original. Kids go to dino island sans parents, everyone is blown away at first, somebody asks cocky science person whether it was a good idea to f*ck around with genetics and, before you know it, the most dangerous dinosaurs are trying to eat everyone—literally the same basic plot as the first movie. There's even a "here, eat this animal on a string" scene, only instead of a goat and a t-rex it's a shark and a giant dino-gator.
So maybe the actual movie will be better, but I found the trailer underwhelming.
