Your mandatory take-this-with-a-grain-of-salt warning: what you’re about to read are unconfirmed plot details of the upcoming Jurassic Park sequel. But the blog they were posted to, JoBlo, does have a decent track record of leaking franchise secrets so here we go.
The film takes place at a theme park called Jurassic World, located off the coast of Florida. Visitors have become jaded by all that Florida has to offer; they’re bored with your run-of-the-mill Iguanodons and Apatosauruses when there are more exciting attractions, like people on meth, just outside the park’s fences. So the park officials have to think of something new. They decide to look into cuttlefish.
They splice together a T-Rex, raptor, snake, and cuttlefish to create a monstrous new dino that, of course, gets loose and terrorizes the park. Nothing like a little greed and human arrogance to ruin a good thing, right?
According to our source, there will be lots of Dino on Dino fighting, as some of the Dinos are “good guys” that are trained by Chris Pratt’s character. The raptors and T-Rex are among the “trained” good dinosaurs. The big bad dinosaur has instant camouflage abilities, like the cuttlefish, so he blends into the background, is smart like the velociraptor, uses his jaw like a snake, and can terrorize like the T-Rex. Does this mean the new dino will be the ONLY “bad” one? Or will there be more than one? Unconfirmed, but it will be the catalyst that kicks off the peril.
That was… unexpected.
Part of the fun of the original Jurassic Park movie (and the book) was that the science behind the creatures actually seemed plausible. (Kind of.) And if you were a dinosaur-crazed kid, you treated each dino scene as a look into how the dinosaurs actually would act. Look how smart the velociraptor is! Etc.
This seems more Transformers meets Jurassic Park. Or Sharknado with a budget. Which is kind of dumb, but maybe fun, and definitely inevitable for an over 20-year-old franchise. The film comes out June 2015.
