[UPDATE: Two more Jurassic World posters have dropped!]
[UPDATE #2: The second Jurassic World trailer has arrived!]
Jurassic World is perhaps one of the 2015 Summer Movie Season’s wild cards, as far as its quality (or lack thereof) goes. Awareness is very high for the new Jurassic Park franchise installment, yet the general opinion is mixed where it concerns what’s been shown and revealed about co-writer/director Colin Trevorrow’s sci-fi action/thriller thus far – be it the human characters, the new twists to the Jurassic Park mythos, or the addition of a genetically-engineered hybrid dinosaur called the Indominus Rex.
The “new Rex,” as featured in the latest Jurassic World poster, is created in order to boost the attendance numbers for the eponymous dinosaur theme park – a realization of the late John Hammond’s dream from twenty years ago. Jurassic World’s top-notch security forces quickly learn that controlling the Indominus Rex is easier said than done, as the dino soon breaks loose and starts wreaking havoc (something that has a domino effect and results in other dinosaurs getting unleashed on the park’s visitors).
Previous Jurassic World previews, like the film’s 2015 Super Bowl promo, have built up Indominus Rex as being the Jurassic Park series equivalent of a serial killer villain – with Chris Pratt (playing dinosaur expert/wrangler Owen) warning that she’s “killing for sport.” However, it won’t be long until we learn more about how exactly the Indominus Rex operates, as well as the film’s human characters and what day to day life is like in Jurassic World – as Trevorrow has confirmed that a new trailer is coming soon.
Trailer Monday. First of three posters today. I'm in second grade, waiting for my turn to read out loud to the class.— Colin Trevorrow (@colintrevorrow) April 17, 2015
Here’s the first of those three Jurassic World posters teased by Trevorrow:
Bryce Dallas Howard stars in Jurassic World as Claire Dearing (pictured above with the Indomnius Rex): a character who works for the Masrani Global corporation that runs Jurassic World in the film. Claire, as teased in previous trailers and TV spots, ends up finding her inner bad-ass once the Rex gets loose – prompting Claire to set out and rescue her nephews (Nick Robinson and Ty Simpkins), while also trying to help protect the park’s many other guests.
UPDATE: Here are the other two Jurassic World posters, featuring the aquatic Mosasaurus (about to snack on a Great White Shark) and Owen and his raptor squad, respectively.

Other key human players in Jurassic World include Irrfan Khan (Life of Pi) as Simon Masrani, the head of Masrani Global; Vincent D’Onofrio (Daredevil) as Vic Hoskins, the head of security at Jurassic World; and BD Wong, reprising his Jurassic Park role as researcher/scientist Henry Wu in this latest film installment. Then there are people like Jake Johnson (New Girl) and Omar Sy (X-Men: Days of Future Past), who are said to be playing Jurassic World employees – maybe we’ll meet them in the second theatrical preview?
Jurassic World opens in U.S. theaters on June 12th, 2015. Check back on Screen Rant next Monday for the new trailer!
