#SDCC14: Jurassic World Rolls into Comic-ConIf you can avert your eyes from staring at the copious amounts of camel toe and moose knuckle long enough, you never know what you’ll see hanging around the San Diego Comic-Con. Case in point: these blink and you missed ’em Jurassic World vehicles.

Vincent D’Onofrio, Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Ty Simpkins, BD Wong, Andy Buckley, Idris Elba, Jake Johnson, Omar Sy, and Nick Robinson star.

Colin Trevorrow (Safety Not Guaranteed) penned the script with Derek Connolly and directs. Steven Spielberg, Frank Marshall, and Pat Crowley produce Jurassic World. In theaters June 12, 2015, this is a new sci-fi terror adventure set 22 years after the horrific events of the original Jurassic Park.

More as it comes.

You're such an inspiration for the ways that I will never, ever choose to be.

    I truly enjoy JP2. Its not the original but its a solid sequel; JP3 isn’t very good but its a decent time killer. Hopefully JP4 will get the series back on track.

  • kiddcapone

    I’d love to join this spirited debate about the Jurassic Park trilogy, but the more I read through the comments, the more I’m beginning to think I never watched either sequel. I’ve always been indifferent towards killer reptile/animal type films, so this might explain it…OR it’s simply old age, either way, no recollection…but I won’t be losing sleep over it.

    Maybe one day. Maybe.

      If you didn’t grow up loving dinosaurs (what’s wrong with you?!), the sequels won’t do much for you. The only reason I love them quite closely to the first is cos of nostalgia… and the fact they totally deliver on the monster action. Long live Stan Winston’s FX!

  • BaileyGiannini

    The Jurassic Park films have been a blast, with the exception of Jurassic Park III, which sucked out time that’ll never get back. The first Jurassic Park film might be a little slow for some people but truly set up the story for the film. The second film is better than the first film and doesn’t do a bad job what so ever. I just hope that the filmmakers have created a good enough story and have written a great script to keep the Jurassic Park films going, if it’s not a good script, please shut down production and not to bother making the garbage.

      Wow. You are the first person in the history of time and space that thinks the second is better than the first. Wow. Just wow. I would love to hear why you think that. Not in an argumentative way (though I think the notion is ludicrous), but to hear something I’ve never heard before.

      • aliensharkboy

        Jurassic Park 2 is a terrific dino-movie! It’s in no way as awe-inspiring or clever as the first, but the characters (Pete Postlethwaite!!!), soundtrack, action, FX and even some elements of the story still make it a very fun watch. I never really understood the bashing it gets.

        Now Jurassic Park 3 is an even guiltier pleasure…

        • frank_dracman

          JP2 is a poorly written, inconsistent, pointless money grab. There are literally dozens of scenes that simply don’t make sense, are physically impossible, contradicting, irritating or flat out stupid. I walked out of it mad. To follow up one of the best sci-fi movies ever with something like this is insulting. I guess if you just want to see dinosaurs on the screen it’s a fine time waster and kids will surely love it, but man it was bad.

          I think a lot of the hate comes from people that are old enough to have seen and appreciated JP1 only to get slapped in the face by 2. If you were to sit a teenager down with all three films there’s no way they could possibly be as astounded and awestruck as we were with the first.

          • LSD Zombie

            Your feelings towards JP2 perfectly describe how I felt about JP3. There’s not a single scene that I enjoyed in that movie. It’s a shame that Sam Neil chose to return in the third film and not the second. At least we would have gotten most of the original gang back together if that had been the case.

        • MonsterMash

          People always give 3 shit for that dino on a plane dream sequence, but I’m sure nearly being devoured by dinosaurs would make sleep difficult for awhile. I find that part amusing. At least it’s not gymnastics fu. Both sequels are watchable, and I like the direction of part 2, but the first is far and away superior. Part 3 has lots of rampaging dinosaur action so I cant hate it despite it’s faults. Maybe we can get a Carnosaur sequel riding the coattails of World.

          • LSD Zombie

            I don’t even remember that dream sequence. All I remember is Sam Neil being suckered into finding the kid of that annoying married couple. That’s the plot in a nutshell; and that’s why the movie sucks.

          • frank_dracman

            And that’s exactly why I like JP3 WAY better than 2. It have a very simple plot, not some convoluted, bloated nonsense like the second. It played better as a self contained, quick, 90 minute monster movie. It got in, gave you what you paid for (dino action) and got out before running the whole thing in the ground. I’m not saying it was a great movie or anything, but it’s infinitely more watchable than 2.

          • LSD Zombie

            Wait, what made the second film convoluted? It was pretty straightforward from what I remember; A rich asshole leads an expedition to hunt and capture the dinosaurs with the help of Goldblum’s character. In Jurassic Park fashion, everything goes to hell and the hunters become the hunted. There’s also a high body count in JP2 from what I remember, which JP3 sorely lacks.

            Maybe I would’ve enjoyed JP3 more if I had been able to empathize with the family over their lost child. Instead I found myself wanting to see the whole family get torn to shreds by Velociraptors.

          • MonsterMash

            I do like part 2 a little more. It’s utterly destroyed island world really takes shape and feels like an abandoned mess left behind in the first film. I don’t dislike the family, but I do not like children having any relevance to the plot. As a kid I never once thought watching the first one “geez, you know, all this wondrous dino action is great, but they really keep isolating me from the story because the kids don’t do anything affecting the plot” I love that about the first one. They’re normal kids, and they’re just there. That’s it. They react to their environment, but they’re not plot tools. In part 3 that dino tear-gasing kid never amused me once.

          • frank_dracman

            I haven’t seen it in a long tine (purposely), but I remember the hunters, Vince Vaughn as some kind of infiltrator, the save-the-baby-so-we-can-have-a-bitchin-truck-over-the-cliff scene, the military shows up, the T-rex goes on vacation and other plot treads they crammed in there. To me that was convoluted. I could be wrong, but don’t ask me to watch it again, please.

            The body count was never an issue for me. It was all about the dinosaurs and the chase. The best parts of the original weren’t the deaths, but the characters being hunted. even though you knew the kids would be safe, it was hella fun to watch.
