Jurassic World Trailer Review


  • I have this friend who is possibly the only dude from my friend circle that likes talking about upcoming movies.
    • He’s not as into them as myself, but hey, anything’s a victory in my eyes.
  • Avengers Age of Ultron is currently my most anticipated film for 2015, and Jurassic World is his.
    • So we’ve both been counting down to the trailer.
      • And we were both pleasantly surprised when it dropped two days early (today!).

Trailer Talk

  • Since I haven’t done a Trailer Review with this new style yet, know that “Trailer Talk” will be the only heading other than preface because there aren’t many categories to split up.
  • That being said, I was mostly impressed by this trailer.
  • I thought all the visuals looked really cool and the park felt real to me.
    • I want to go to Jurassic World now, and that’s a heavy complement to the trailer.
  • Also, Chris Pratt in this trailer.
    • He isn’t doing goofball Star-Lord humor.
      • I was worried that he may try that in more stuff since it worked so well in Guardians, but I’m happy to see he won’t be.
        • Or will be, but very little.
      • And let’s talk about the two big money shots in this trailer: the shark scene, and the motorcycle chase scene.
        • I feel like they could have ended the trailer with the shark scene and I would have been impressed, but then that might have been too much of a teaser, I guess…
        • And that motorcycle chase scene at the end looks like the definition of epic.
      • I also like the premise they’re going after here, which is the hybridization of two dinosaurs.
      • That being said, we’ve now crossed into my negatives about the trailer.
      • I like the dinosaur hybrid plotline, but (and my friend agrees with me on this) it looks like after the dino gets loose, Jurassic World turns into Alien.
        • I could be wrong on that, but that’s how it’s presented to me.
        • It looks like Alien Takes Disneyworld or something.
      • And my other negative is how cliché and predictable a lot of the trailer seems.
        • Example: the minute the mom said, “if you see anything dangerous then run,” I immediately knew that the trailer would end with the kid crouched down and a dino going by him, with “Run,” in the background…
        • There isn’t even a ton of dialogue here, but it does seems like a lot of it is a collage from the original Jurassic World and some other mismatched movies.
  • With all that in mind, this is a positive trailer in my eyes (nowhere near as epic as Age of Ultron, but whatever…) but it does have some aspects I hope are changed up a bit in the film.
  • I’m really interested in Jurassic World and I think it could be a really sweet reimagining of the Jurassic Part Universe.
    • And the only one that exists other than the original Jurassic Park…
