This teaser poster for Jurassic World, revealed today at San Diego Comic-Con, is a beautiful throwback to the original Jurassic Park, featuring the iconic Jurassic Park Tour Vehicle, and a theme park under construction. Full of dystopian symbology — ruined car, city/urban environment overrun by jungle/plant life — this poster is more than just a pretty bit of imagery, there’s a lot there to confirm the rumours that Jurassic World will feature a rundown, seen-better-days version of the Jurassic Park originally imagined by John Hammond in the original film/novel. The dino-nest in the vehicle’s wheel well suggests the decay and rampant dinoism has been going on for a long time.
This rundown of the leaked plot, also courtesy of io9, is suitable, entertaining camp:
Jurassic Park is back in business, but business appears to be flagging. So someone has the fantastic idea to start mixing dinosaur DNA together to create new dinosaurs. Somehow, they end up with a tyrannosaurus rex, a velociraptor, a snake and a cuttlefish — because of its camouflage abilities — that inadvertently creates a perfect killing machine that of course gets loose and starts eating people. It’s basically like evil dinosaur Predator.
How to stop a monster that was obviously going to murder everything it saw from day one? Good dinosaurs, trained by Chris Pratt’s characters, including a regular T.rex and velociraptor.
More about the leaked plot can be found on JoBlo.
My hype levels for Jurassic World are at a point where the movie can’t be anything but a disastrous disappointment, but I can’t help it. Over-the-top plot, Chris Pratt, gorgeous concept art/visual design, sexy throwback posters? Sign me up.
