‘Jurassic World’ director defends ‘ugly’ park gate in trailer

Colin Trevorrow says the park gate seen in the trailer won't appear in the final film

The director of Jurassic World, Colin Trevorrow, has defended the park gate that appears briefly in the film’s trailer.

The full-length trailer for Jurassic World was released on Tuesday (November 25), several days earlier than originally expected, and received an overwhelmingly positive response from fans of the dinosaur franchise. However, some viewers complained that the gate to the Jurassic World theme part seen in the trailer is “ugly” and less realistic-looking than it should be.

When a fan tweeted Trevorrow about it, asking “will the JW gate in the movie be CGI or practical? Everything was so seamless in the original,” the director took the opportunity to clarify the matter.

Responding to a follow-up question, Trevorrow confirmed that the shot of the gate seen in the trailer won’t appear in the final film.

Jurassic World is set to open in cinemas on June 12, 2015. It will arrive nearly 14 years after the last instalment in the series, 2001’s Jurassic Park III.

Parks And Recreation/Guardians Of The Galaxy star Chris Pratt heads up the film’s cast, flanked by actors including Bryce Dallas Howard, Omar Sy, Ty Simpkins and Judy Greer.

Trevorrow is directing 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. Earlier this year 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.”
