That’s right, another mini-post about a single TV spot! A lot of people are saying this is their favorite spot of all, and it’s not hard to see why:
The clip features the Jurassic Park score as well as a little clip of Giaccino’s spin on the original theme, which is pretty cool in itself, as well as a voice-over of some of Hammond’s more iconic quotes. One of the lines is altered to say “Welcome to Jurassic World”. Aww.
We get another look at the Gyrosphere Valley scene, as well as a Parasaurolophus in action!
Well, maybe not action exactly, but still. I love the way the animal looks out in the wild, and of course I’ll always have a soft spot for lazy, sleepy dinosaurs.
The scene of the crowd rushing out of the gates has been altered to show what they’re running from:
And we see the I. rex in the waterfall scene!
It seems I. rex has a variety of different attacks, including her arms and her jaws. Seeing as T. rex really only has her lunging attack to fight with and I. rex has two different fronts to attack from, it’ll be especially interesting to see how the rex fight goes down and whether or not her dextrous arms will even matter at all. Anyway, it’ll be cool to see her kill and devour this way in the meantime.
At the end of the spot, #Armgate continues:
What, they couldn’t leave the arm in there for two seconds? Would showing the arm of someone who has very clearly just been eaten in the mouth of what just ate her be too gruesome for this movie about murderous dinosaurs chasing little boys and going crazy on their trainers? Especially in a movie that the director describes as ‘purely terrifying’ and in a scene where only really, really dedicated watchers spotted the arm in Mosa’s mouth in the first place? I’m sure the editors had their reasons for removing it, sure, but it doesn’t make sense to me. Why would they remove the arm? Does Zara somehow survive that? Did it have to go away to keep the PG-13 rating? What is the meaning of life?
That’s all the new footage; just so this isn’t a total stub of a post, here’s something concisely appropriate from Jurassiraptor:
I don’t know what these people’s names are or where to find them on Tumblr, and I really wish I’d recorded it, because these are some of the most awesome Jurassic Park cosplayers I’ve ever seen. Look how amazing they are. I cry:
If you know who either of them are, please send me their Tumblr or at least tell them they’re awesome for me, because not only do they look amazing, the world’s female Malcolm cosplayers need to unite in this time of struggle and I’d love to make friends with these girls. And I need to find out where she got that wig.
Oh, and in Shameless Friend-Promoting news, I totally forgot to mention this: Dinosaur Guy of When Dinosaurs Ruled the Mind is opening a new frontier! He’s starting a new blog about depictions of anthropomorphic animals in the media, much like he does with dinosaurs right now, and he’s also publishing his novel Masai Mara there. He’s currently trying to get it off the ground, so you should visit it at inkandpaintzoology.wordpress.com and give it a follow. It’s gonna be awesome.
