‘Jurassic Park 4′ Teases a First Look at the Dinosaurs


Though we’re still a year away from the release of ‘Jurassic Park 4,’ director Colin Trevorrow wants us to know that the dinosaurs are coming, and that some will be done with practical effects, as he’s just teased a first glimpse at one of the dinos!

Trevorrow, who’s done a masterful job working social media and the internet (so far), just tweeted this picture:

This suggests that at least one of the onscreen creatures will be done with a very large puppet, which is what we assumed when VFX legend Phil Tippett was hired as the dinosaur supervisor. Sure, CGI technology has gotten better in the 20 years since ‘Jurassic Park’ first hit theaters, but knowing that the performers are interacting with something tangible usually creates something more powerful.

‘Jurassic Park 4’ has revealed little of its plot so far, though we know it’s officially titled ‘Jurassic World’ and will take place in a time where people are a little bored with the existence of living dinosaurs, while star Chris Pratt is said to be doing behavioral research on the predatory instincts of the velociraptors. The film also stars Bryce Dallas Howard, Judy Greer, Jake Johnson, Ty Simpkins, Vincent D’Onofrio, Irrfan Khan and some dinosaurs, and is scheduled to hit theaters June 12, 2015.
