Super Bowl Trailer: ‘Jurassic World’

Jurassic World

True story time! A friend of mine and I had a little discussion about the latest trailer for Jurassic World. His hopes aren’t particularly high, while I can see the problems here but still understand the logic behind them. Basically, it came down to one major difference: He thinks the movie is pure wish-fulfillment, what with hunky Chris Pratt and his herd of velociraptors hunting a mutant dinosaur.

Now, here’s what I think: Yes, it’s a bit wish-fulfillment. But (A) this movie is supposed to be a family deal, and (B) it actually makes total sense. Seriously, if you’re going to raise a hoard of mini-killing machines from the dead, you don’t think you would tinker with the DNA a little to make them docile? And you don’t think that, as an extra precaution, you have someone on hand who understands how to control them? If you bring a lion into your zoo, you’re gonna make sure there’s a lion tamer on payroll. Although breeding a giant mutant dinosaur kinda seems to be the logical blindspot here, so … yeah, there are some weird plot points. But still, it looks undeniably cool.
