While we all get excited about seeing the new hybrid dinosaur, the Indominus Rex (D-Rex) in action in Jurassic World, let’s not forget about the legendary T-Rex, the dinosaur who dominated Jurassic Park and The Lost World.
We saw a T-Rex get easily beat by the monstrous Spinosaurus in Jurassic Park III, yet Jurassic World director Colin Trevorrow is not done with the beast just yet. A T-Rex will be making an appearance in Jurassic World, and in a homage to Steven Spielberg’s classic original, Trevorrow is bringing back THE T-Rex, you know, the one that struck fear into EVERY cinema goer back in 1993.
In an interview with SlashFilm, Trevorrow confirmed the return of the T-Rex from Jurassic Park:
“She is 22 years older. But she’s not limping around. …it’s going to move a little bit differently, but it’ll move differently because it’s older. And we’re giving her some scars and we’re tightening her skin. So, she has that feeling of, like, an older Burt Lancaster. And this movie is her Unforgiven”
This is awesome news, and it’s great that instead of just using a bog standard T-Rex, the makers are going to the effort of creating an aged, well know monster from Spielberg’s original film. Hats of to you Colin Trevorrow, a superb idea!
Let’s enjoy one of cinemas most thrilling scenes all over again below, shall we?
Directed by Colin Trevorrow and Executive Produced by Steven Spielberg, Jurassic World stars Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Ty Simpkins, Nick Robinson, Irrfan Khan, Vincent D’Onofrio, Jake Johnson, Omar Sy, BD Wong and Judy Greer.
Jurassic World will now open in cinemas June 11th 2015.
Twenty-two years after the events of ‘Jurassic Park’ (1993), Isla Nublar now features a fully functioning dinosaur theme park, Jurassic World, as originally envisioned by John Hammond. After 10 years of operation and visitor rates declining, in order to fulfill a corporate mandate, a new attraction is created to re-spark visitor’s interest, which backfires horribly.
