A new look at Jurassic World's Indominus Rex revealed

01.29.2015

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:

Run!

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.

NOT

To be honest, I'm genuinely not that excited about this film. Yes, It's Jurassic World BUT the realism of the animatronics that Spielberg used and the magic he created seems so absent here...Oh, and Chris Pratt driving a motorcycle along side Raptors WTF? However, I'm still interested in seeing the film eventually and am willing to give any film a chance.

The writers are missing the point

The dinosaurs weren't ever villains, it was always the human ego that was the villain. This is why John Hammond's dialogue about the flea circus was so important in the original. But the people who decided to write this movie just threw that all out the window and now we have dinosaurs that are trained like seeing-eye dogs. I guess they'll have some kind of implant that they put in the dinosaurs to have them be so domicile, right? And I wonder why they couldn't do this to their new imaginary

I guess they'll have some kind of implant that they put in the dinosaurs to have them be so domicile, right? And I wonder why they couldn't do this to their new imaginary dino - I bet it's because of some inexplicable reason that it rejects the implant.

This is just a remake of the original Jurassic Park, no matter how many implausible dinosaurs they toss in. This is just a way for them to create a CGI spectacle and cash in on nostalgia. But in the end, it's just going to be the same thing as going to see one of the recent remakes like Robocop - they lose sight of the purpose of the story because they are blinded by the amount of money involved. It makes me feel a little bit sick to see something so important to my childhood being ruined.

My guess is that the humans' egos are the ones that have created this villainous species. They want the park to go to the next level, just like any amusement park, but this time they went to far.

Personally I'm excited. The dinosaurs were always genetically enhanced - toad DNA etc. Human's have big egos and would enjoy playing God. It's not a stretch to imagine them saying 'let's see what else we can make!' Even if it was a bad idea. That hasn't stopped us before. Agree with others on the CGI concern. We'll soon find out.

Maybe the promos are meta

Anyone think about these "crappy cgi" promo pieces actually being cgi promo pieces that the park in the movie uses to promote new exhibits in the park that haven't opened yet? This screams of that sort of thing.

Not going to criticize this new idea and dinosaur considering that it's only a picture of its snout. I do prey that the film's dinosaurs aren't all cgi'd to hell.

I knew this would happen. Cgi dinosaurs are going to ruin this. Surely it wasn't hard to create a physical model for this poster rather than a computer animated dinosaur which looks too fake to be scary

Why not make him breathe fire and fly? They already jump the shark with this mutant make-em-up, might as well embrace the cheesiness of it.

Wow, that looks absolutely cheesy.

Why does this 'terrifying' new dino look like a Dreamworks cartoon? What in the hell?

Even if their was a theme park in real life......

I sill wouldn't go. On a fucking island in the middle of an ocean?! You got me fucked up! I don't even go to zoos because i feel that a caged animal is at its strongest and dangerous. But the movie looks cool, can't wait to see it though.
