Sequel executive produced by Steven Spielberg opens in cinemas on June 11
A new preview clip from this summer’s Jurassic World has been released – and it shows Chris Pratt’s character Owen being chased by the film’s main antagonist, a genetically-modified dinosaur known as an ‘Indominus Rex’.
Jurassic World is set to open in cinemas on June 11, 2015, nearly 14 years after the last instalment in the series, 2001’s Jurassic Park III. The most recent trailer for the dinosaur sequel was released on Monday (April 20) and can be viewed here.
The official plot synopsis teases: “Twenty-two years after the events of Jurassic Park, Isla Nublar now features a fully functioning dinosaur theme park, Jurassic World, as originally envisioned by John Hammond. After 10 years of operation and visitor rates declining, in order to fulfill a corporate mandate, a new attraction is created to re-spark visitor’s interest, which backfires horribly.”
Parks And Recreation/Guardians Of The Galaxy star Pratt heads up the film’s cast, flanked by Bryce Dallas Howard (Spider-Man 3, The Help), Omar Sy (X-Men: Days Of Future Past), Ty Simpkins (Insidious) and Judy Greer (Arrested Development).
Colin Trevorrow directs from a script he has co-written, and Steven Spielberg – who directed the first two films in the franchise – is on board as an executive producer. Last year (2014) Trevorrow teased the possibility of sequels to Jurassic World, saying: “We wanted to create something that would be a little bit less arbitrary and episodic, and something that could potentially arc into a series that would feel like a complete story.”
