Jurassic World is open

The trailer for the new Jurassic Park movie came out yesterday. It looks like a promising summer blockbuster. While there is little chance it will live up to magic of the original, the previous sequels left a low enough bar for this one to easily surpass.

Even without a Michael Crichton novel to draw from, the writers of the movie came up with a great premise: despite the previous disasters on the island, the park is completed and opened to the public. It features various dinosaur attractions that follow the familiar motifs of Disney Land and Sea World. However, things go wrong when a genetic hybrid dinosaur escapes. Tim Siedell has high hopes for the genetically modified monster.

The ending of the trailer features a haunting version of John Williams original theme music played one piano key at a time. I can’t wait for June 12.
