There’s been a lot of talk of the brand new Dinosaur appearing in Colin Trevorrow’s Jurassic World, and now we are a little closer to understanding just how badass this monster will be.
We already know that the Diabolus Rex (or D-Rex) is a human made hybrid monster, and we have been teased that this thing is much bigger, and more aggressive than a T-Rex, and now the official Jurassic World website has unleashed some images and details of the beast.
Firstly, the D-Rex has had a name change, and is now known as Indominus Rex, and along with a chilling poster image, two promotional images advertising the park as a place to visit have been released, all promoting the new Indominus Rex.
The website shared the following information about the hybrid Dinosaur:
We set out to make Indominus the most fearsome dinosaur ever to be displayed at Jurassic World. 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.
Colin Trevorrow directs and co-wrote Jurassic World with Derek Connolly based on an existing script by Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver. The cast is led by Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard, who are joined by youngsters Nick Robinson (The Kings of Summer) and Ty Simpkins (Insidious). Vincent D’Onofrio and Irrfan Khan also star. BD Wong (Jurassic Park) is the only actor from the franchise to be making a return.
Jurassic World will arrive in cinemas June 12th 2015.
Steven Spielberg returns to executive produce the long-awaited next installment of his groundbreaking Jurassic Park series, Jurassic World. Colin Trevorrow directs the epic action-adventure from a screenplay he wrote with Derek Connolly. Frank Marshall and Patrick Crowley join the team as producers.
