Still without a 2nd Theatrical Trailer, Jurassic World has done most of its marketing in smaller doses through two excellent TV spots; the 1st from the Superbowl and the latter released only weeks ago.
Today we get a clip from the movie, but don’t get too excited. No dinos; Velociraptors, Indominous Rex or otherwise are present. Instead, we get a dialog scene with Bryce Dallas Howard as Dr. Claire Dearing and Chris Pratt as Velociraptor whisperer Owen Grady.
The scene feels a little stale, with too much by-the-book archetypes that caused Avengers: Age of Ultron director Joss Whedon to label the clip as “70’s era sexist.” This from the man who has Black Widow saying “I always clean up after you boys” whilst grabbing Capt.’s Shield off the street for him.
I’m never here to get political or what-not, so let’s get to the clip.
See what I mean? It just feels like a scene from any movie trying to establish a rebel of a character and the stuck-up scientist. It’s not the lack of dinosaurs that is disappointing, it’s the quality of the writing and even performance choices that have brought upon my first real doubts about my most anticipated movie of 2015.
Hopefully director Colin Trevorrow and his leads Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard bring their A-game to every other scene in June 12th’s Jurassic World. I know Indominus Rex will…
