First Look at JURASSIC WORLD’s Genetic Hybrid Indominus Rex

The film’s official website notes that the new dinosaur’s name means “Fierce or Untamable King” and that’s it’s 40 feet in length. The first thing that comes to my mind is: Jurassic World will be huge overseas. Dinosaurs in 3D sounds great.

“We set out to make Indominus the most fearsome dinosaur ever to be displayed at Jurassic World,” reads the description. “The genetic engineers at our Hammond Creation Lab have more than delivered…At first glance, Indominus most closely resembles a T. Rex. But its distinctive head ornamentation and ultra-tough bony osteoderms can be traced from Theropods known as Abeliosaurs. Indominus’ horns have been placed above the eye orbit through genetic material hybridized from Carnotaurus, Majungasaurus, Rugops and Giganotosaurus. Fearsome indeed…..Indominus’ roar is estimated to reach 140-160db—the same as a 747 taking off and landing. And it can reach speeds of 30 MPH while confined to its enclosure. Come experience Indominus Rex for yourself beginning this summer. If you dare.”

Holy crap, that smoke/teeth image is actually pretty creepy. I’ve heard that iREX can replace those teeth, similar to how a shark always has new teeth growing in. Wait, is it deliberate that the big bad dino for the new generation is the iREX? Oh, whatever.

Director Colin Trevorrow‘s action-packed sequel, starring Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard, opens June 12. We’ll have much more on Jurassic World later this week, when the Super Bowl trailer is revealed. Here’s hoping for a full screen shot in the next trailer.
