“Jurassic World” is one of the most anticipated films of this year. The plot revolves around hybrid dinosaur Indominus Rex, who will create havoc on Isla Nublar after it escapes. Director Colin Trevorrow recently revealed details about the monstrous creature, genetically created by the engineers at the Hammond Creation Lab, to pump up attendance.
“The Indominus was meant to embody our worst tendencies," Trevorrow said to Entertainment Weekly. 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.”
The creature is reportedly designed to thrill the audience, but it will not find a place in the natural history museum, as it is does not represent a real dinosaur. “It’s a hybrid of specific dinosaurs with great movie names like the Giganotosaurus and Majungasaurus. It is an abomination and a killer -- and on party plates,” added Trevorrow.
The toy merchandise of “Jurassic World” has already been released, and it includes a flagship Indominus Rex toy. The toys are available from Hasbro and Lego.
“Jurassic World” is set to open in the theaters on June 12, 2015. Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Vincent D'Onofrio, Ty Simpkins, Nick Robinson, B.D. Wong and Irrfan Khan will star in the film. Frank Marshall and Patrick Crowley are producing the film, and Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver have written the story.
“Jurassic World” is the fourth film in the popular franchise. The film is expected to make more than $100 million at the box office, according to reports by Variety. The prerelease ticket sale has been strong since the release of the trailers, which according to Phil Contrino, vice president and chief analyst at BoxOffice.com, have connected with the audience in a big way.
