Well, this is a surprise. After promising that the movie’s first trailer would drop on Thanksgiving, Universal Studios has now gone ahead and released the Jurassic World trailer two days early!

It all starts with a mother sending her two kids off to the dino theme park (remember, it’s always a good idea to send children into the midst of bloodthirsty, flesh-eating monsters) with some sage advice: “And remember – something chases you: run.”

If you’ve watched Jurassic Park (1993), it’s right about then that the spine tingling feeling starts in your body. That sense of wonder as you step onto the dinosaur island, the gates of the theme park opening….As far as I’m concerned, the concept of man versus dinosaurs will never grow old.

We get a fair few glimpses of the dinos – just enough to tantalise – as well as a brilliant variation of that old theme park trick where a whale/dolphin leaps out of the water to grab a tasty treat. The sea creature in this version is slightly less cuddly.

And we have a brand new dino in the mix too. “A whole new frontier has opened up. We have our first genetically modified hybrid,” declares Claire (Bryce Dallas Howard). Which could NEVER escape, of course.

Then there’s shots of science-y looking lab stuff, insects trapped in amber, scratch marks on walls…all to clue you in to the fact that the shit’s gonna hit the fan, just in case it’s not clear enough.

Star-Lord Chris Pratt looks to be playing the stoic tough guy role in this one, as security dude Owen. He’s also there to spout silly lines like: “She’s a highly intelligent animal. She’ll kill anything that moves.”

June 12, 2015, y’all. Can’t wait!!
