I don't think it will necessarily suck, but it probably won't be anything spectacular or capture the same magic that the very first movie did. I'm at least expecting a 6-7/10 rated film and keeping my expectations around that level in hopes that I'll be surprised.

That said, I'm kinda tired of the same formula being followed. They should have done something new instead of another "dino chase/survival horror" thing. The trained raptors seems like a new and kinda cool idea, but I don't know how much weight that is going to carry.

Trained raptors are a concept that picks up exactly where JP3 left off, and is the main reason why this movie sounds horrific to me. I don't expect anything but some cool CGI scenes and plenty of fodder for memes.

Oh and probably another feminist meltdown over something ridiculous, because we can't have anything in the media without that these days.

To be honest the raptors were the only thing I liked about JP3, not so much the stupid "Alan" bit but the idea of them evolving and becoming more intelligent. I really do think being able to tame and train raptors is something that's believable within the mythos that the films present.

Then again, that might also just be because raptors were equally my favorite dino along with T-Rex and I always fantasized about having a pet raptor.

You think that blows your mind, read 3001 the Final Odyssey. Arthur C Clark makes Hollywood/Crichton seem like amateur hour.

Well, they had a Ceratosaurus in JP 3. Apparently they have DNA of Carnotaurus and Giganotosaurs too as they're mixed into the Indominous Rex, along with a guy called Rugops i've never heard of before. Thing is - they can't really use too many too similar dinosaurs so they settle on the ones that sell (i imagine that's the same reason why Jurassic World has no Giganotosaurus. Gotta save space.)

But people - we've got a Jurassic World thread for theorycrafting, and i'd be happy to do that there.

This thread is for hype!

It's because it's not an image, it's a .webm video.

That's strange

Also have a shitty Eliphas-made T-rex drawing

Jurassic World 2's filming starts in 2017, unless this one too ends up in ten years of development hell.

Get. Fucking. Hype.

And hope to Luna they get whoever's doing the Rogue One CGI to jump on board, i mean Jesus H. Christ the Jurassic World CGI was shit. Apparently they want to use more animatronics but i'll believe it when i see it.

The Eagle has landed! I repeat: The Eagle has landed!
This is not a drill!


They used the right roar this time! Blue doesn't look like shit! There's dinosaurs everywhere! (Not an overly huge fan of the new theme variation though.)

I haven't found any PROPER spoilers yet but looking at what we DO know about the movie, most of them will be fine.


Cuteness unrelated.
