New ‘Jurassic World’ Dinosaurs All About Selling Merch?



Just yesterday Universal Pictures unloaded the official trailer to Colin Trevorrow’s Jurassic World.

Personally, I thought it looked wild, but not everyone is on my side.

I’ve seen complaints about the weird transportation pods (joked to be from Tomorrowland) to the shots of the park that look like they were filmed directly on the Universal Studios grounds (the theme park, not the studio). Even paleontologists are blasting the science behind the Jurassic Park sequel. It just goes on and on (people are even pissed about the crane flies in the sap).

Frankly, I think most of the haters need to STFU and save their criticism for the final product. How can you judge a movie this early?

This is how…

The implication given by The Verge and “Wired” writer Tim Carmody is one that’s too stomach churning to ignore.

As we all know, Jurassic World is based around the concept of humans “toying” (this is an awesome pun) with the DNA of dinosaurs and creating hybrids (like the D-rex). Allegedly, the reason for this is so Universal can own the intellectual properties of the dinosaurs*. Clearly, Uni does not own any rights to the dinosaurs in Jurassic Park, and anyone could create knock off shirts and toys based on the T-rex, Velociraptors, etc. So, the question remains, was the concept of the hybrid dinos organic, or forced much like the scientists agenda in the film? I’m not sure we’ll ever know, but it sort of hurts my soul just knowing that the entire movie’s heart and soul could be about greed. It’s sort of ironic and perfect when you really think about it, though. John Hammond would have been proud.

Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Ty Simpkins, Jake Johnson, Nick Robinson, Irrfan Khan, Vincent D’Onofrio, BD Wong, Omar Sy, Judy Greer, Katie McGrath, Andy Buckley and Lauren Lapkus star in the Jurassic Park sequel opening June 12, 2015.

This time Universal Pictures will be opening the actual park. If you’re curious what the new park has to offer, check out these leaked brochures!

(*There’s nothing wrong with Uni wanting to create merchandise and make as much money as possible with their massive investment. We just hope the movie wasn’t compromised in doing so.)
