Universal Pictures has released a clip via Comicbook from the forthcoming film “Jurassic World.” It shows park operations manager Claire Dearing (Bryce Dallas Howard) explaining to Owen Grady (Chris Pratt) the reason for the creation of the hybrid dinosaur Indominus Rex.
“The park needs a new attraction every few years in order to re-invigorate the public interest -- kind of like a space program, corporate felt genetic modification will up the 'wow factor',” she says. Grady responds: “The dinosaurs are wow enough.” However, Dearing tells him that focus groups don’t feel dinosaurs are enough to lure visitors and “Indominus Rex makes us (the park) relevant again,” as it is scary and its name is “easy to pronounce.”
The fictional Indominus Rex will be created from the DNA of Giganotosaurus, Rugops, Majungasaurus, and Carnotaurus, the movie's official site reports. Its roar is estimated to reach 140-160 decibels and it can run as fast as 30 mph. It will feature humanity’s worst tendencies, director Colin Trevorrow told Entertainment Weekly.
“Indominus is an abomination and a killer -- and on party plates. It’s a hybrid of specific dinosaurs that exist in the world today; with certain attributes that Dr. Wu [B.D. Wong] felt would create the ultimate piece of entertainment. It’s a classic villain to me because it’s comparatively synthetic to the other dinosaurs. Indominus sort of makes the dinosaurs feel like real animals. It’s an abomination that must be exterminated,” he said.
“Jurassic World” opens June 12. Trevorrow has also written the screenplay of the film with Rick Jaffa, Amanda Silver and Derek Connolly based on the novel “Jurassic Park” by Michael Crichton. Steven Spielberg returns to executive produce and Frank Marshall and Patrick Crowley have also joined the team as producers.
Other cast members include Vincent D'Onofrio, Ty Simpkins, Nick Robinson, Omar Sy and Irrfan Khan. Wong is the only actor to reprise his role from the previous films.
