A new look at Jurassic World's Indominus Rex revealed
With the Tyrannosaurus Rex being so 1993, it was inevitable that we would be seeing a new villain in director Colin Trevorrow’s upcoming JURASSIC WORLD. We have seen some artwork showing the Indominus Rex, but nothing too revealing yet. Sadly this reveal isn't major, but the tease leads me to think that we should be getting a full view of the creature soon, perhaps during the Super Bowl. The animal is a genetic hybridization meaning that it was created by man and not nature. If movies have taught us anything, it’s that you don’t mess around in a lab playing God, especially a new dinosaur.
It’s going to be the new attraction at the functioning park and its official description from the official JURASSIC WORLD site is as follows:
We set out to make Indominus the most fearsome dinosaur ever to be displayed at Jurassic World. The genetic engineers at our Hammond Creation Lab have more than delivered. At first glance, Indominus most closely resembles a T. Rex. But its distinctive head ornamentation and ultra-tough bony osteoderms can be traced from Theropods known as Abeliosaurs. Indominus’ horns have been placed above the eye orbit through genetic material hybridized from Carnotaurus, Majungasaurus, Rugops and Giganotosaurus. Fearsome indeed. Indominus’ roar is estimated to reach 140-160db—the same as a 747 taking off and landing. And it can reach speeds of 30 mph…while confined to its enclosure. Come experience Indominus Rex for yourself beginning this summer. If you dare.
Take a look beyond the smoke and shadows to see the new baddy:
Another note from the site: “Indominus’ teeth are being constantly replaced—a genetic distinction common to all Theropods as well as nearly all sharks.” Did they just mate JAWS and JURASSIC PARK? I hope so! We don’t know if this dinosaur has been made with practical effects or if we can expect a CG-rex to disappoint us a little.
JURASSIC WORLD opens in theaters on June 12th 2015.
