Jurassic World director Colin Trevorrow has been steadily tweeting teaser images from the set of the film, but so far we haven’t seen hide nor scale of the dino-beasts themselves. Until now, that is. Last night, we got our first glimpse of one of Isla Nublar’s star attractions. Well, sorta. Accompanying the image with a single word, ‘Nights’, Trevorrow tweeted the following:
It’s just a shadow, people, be about your business. However, it is a very toothy and dangerous looking shadow, which appears to be in the process of either roaring up a storm, or chomping on something. Or someone.
As to what sort of dinosaur the shadow belongs to, the jury is out. It looks pretty big, but it’s certainly not a Tyrannosaur with a snout that long. It could be one of those long-nosed mothers we saw on the other island in Jurassic Park III (which, by the way, came out about thirteen years ago – doesn’t that make you feel old), or it could be this ‘new’ dinosaur created by the park’s geneticists that Trevorrow has referred to in past interviews.
Well, if he gets round to tweeting an actual image of an honest-to-Darwin dinosaur, we’ll be sure to let you know. Meanwhile, here’s another of his recent tweets we also like:
“All my gratitude to our background actors in New Orleans. The bar has been raised for running and screaming.”
Jurassic World will open in UK cinemas on June 12th 2015.
