JURASSIC WORLD Director Teases Fans with New Dinosaur


Following official images of the humans from the Jurassic World set last week, director Colin Trevorrow took to Twitter to tease one of the fan favorite dinosaurs.

It’s not much to look at, but it’s certainly the shadow of something very big with very sharp teeth and it appears to have more of a crocodile-like snout than T-Rex (the photo above from the Licensing Expo which is underway in Las Vegas),  so this could be our first look at the new addition to the franchise.

The Safety Not Guaranteed director, who also co-wrote the Jurassic World script, posted this picture with the one word description, “Nights” – a nice way to describe the silhouette the light puts on a massive dino jaw.

Here’s how Trevorrow described the new, evil dinosaur to /Film:

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.

And here’s the image he teased:


Scheduled to be released on June 12, 2015, the film stars Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Omar Sy, Vincent D’Onofrio, Ty Simpkins, Nick Robinson, Jake Johnson, Judy Greer, and Irrfan Khan.

They are currently filming Jurassic World in New Orleans.
