“Jurassic World” is coming in 2015 and Universal has started to hint at what fans of the franchise can expect to see. New photos were just released for the movie, and the three released from the studio were just of the human members of the cast. However, a more exciting photo was released on Twitter by director Colin Trevorrow when he posted what looks like a shadow of a dinosaurs open mouth, with the sharp teeth showing.
This ties into the recent rumors that “Jurassic World” will introduce a brand new dinosaur into the world of “Jurassic Park,” one that might have been genetically engineered to be bigger, stronger and more dangerous than the reality-based dinosaurs from the first three movies. With a new never-before-seen dinosaur on the way, here is what fans have seen so far through the first three movies in the popular dinosaur franchise.
The first move in the series is still the best. “Jurassic Park” was the first movie in cinema history to consist of pure CGI and is the template for what movies have achieved since. That makes this first film so amazing because, despite its new technology, it stands up well today compared to movies using the techniques 20 years later. A group of scientists head to a new amusement park that will feature actual cloned dinosaurs, but then end up trapped on the island when the power goes down and the dinosaurs escape.
“The Lost World: Jurassic Park”
Thanks to the amazing success of the first movie, Spielberg returned with “The Lost World: Jurassic Park.” This second movie changes the location to a different island where the dinosaurs were bred before being transported to the amusement park on the main island. Jeff Goldblum returns for the second outing, sent to the island to help turn it into a dinosaur preserve. When the group he is with meets hunters there to capture some of the dinosaurs, they end up fighting side-by-side when the carnivores start hunting them down.
“Jurassic Park III”
Spielberg left the franchise after that second movie and Joe Johnston (“Captain America: The First Avenger”) signed on to direct “Jurassic Park III.” Unlike the first two movies, which were both based on novels by Michael Crichton, this movie was an original script. The movie heads back to the island from the second movie where a young man goes missing. This time around, it is Sam Neill who returns from the first movie as he is hired by the boy’s parents (William H. Macy and Tea Leoni) for a sightseeing tour, not realizing they brought him to the island to help find their son.
