Colin Trevorrow Confirms Recent Plot Rumours

jurassic world logo

In a recent article over at JoBlo they revealed some of the plot of the upcoming 2015 release, Jurassic World.  The article told us that there will be new dinosaurs never seen before and made from dino DNA splicing.

Normally this kind of plot leakage gets denied but in a refreshing change, director Colin Trevorrow has confirmed these rumours in a recent interview with /Film

Will there be crossbred dinosaurs or new species created for the movie?

We were hoping audiences could discover this on their own, but yes, there will be one new dinosaur created by the park’s geneticists. The gaps in her sequence were filled with DNA from other species, much like the genome in the first film was completed with frog DNA. This creation exists to fulfill a corporate mandate—they want something bigger, louder, with more teeth. And that’s what they get.
I know the idea of a modified dinosaur put a lot of fans on red alert, and I understand it. But we aren’t doing anything here that Crichton didn’t suggest in his novels. This animal is not a mutant freak. It doesn’t have a snake’s head or octopus tentacles. It’s a dinosaur, created in the same way the others were, but now the genetics have gone to the next level. For me, it’s a natural evolution of the technology introduced in the first film. Maybe it sounds crazy, but most of my favorite movies sound crazy when you describe them in a single sentence.

What are the relationships between the main characters and the dinosaurs? Are there “good guy” and “bad guy” dinosaurs in the movie?

There’s no such thing as good or bad dinosaurs. There are predators and prey. The T-Rex in Jurassic Park took human lives, and saved them. No one interpreted her as good or bad. This film is about our relationship with animals, how we react to the threat they pose to our dominance on earth as a species. We hunt them, we cage them in zoos, we admire them from afar and we try to assert control over them. Chris Pratt’s character is doing behavioral research on the raptors. They aren’t trained, they can’t do tricks. He’s just trying to figure out the limits of the relationship between these highly intelligent creatures and human beings. If people don’t think there’s potential in those ideas, maybe they won’t like this movie. But I ask them to give it a chance.

After the success of Close Encounters in 1977 Steven Spielberg set to work on a follow up called Night Skies.  The legendary special effects wizard, Rick Baker was called upon to create alien prototypes for the film.

Unfortunately the movie was abandoned and many of the prototypes were used in other movies including E.T.

Rick Baker has kindly been posting photos of his work on this abandoned project over on his Twitter feed.  Here are some of those photos along with his tweets.

Colin Trevorrow Tweets Jurassic World Isla Nublar Veterinary Services Patch. That’s Some Vet!

jurassic world vet

This picture was tweeted a few hours ago by Jurassic World director, Colin Trevorrow.  It shows a sleeve patch and it says “Isla Nublar Veterinary Services.  Jurassic World.”  Well, considering there are going to be dinosaurs of all kind on the island, how do you train as a vet for these particular circumstances?  A bit different to your neighbours cat having hair balls.

There were no words accompanying the tweet and this was his first tweet since March.  Obviously busy filming the movie.
