First official look at Jurassic World's Indominus Rex

Okay, so it’s not much of a good look per se, but here’s our first official shot of JURASSIC WORLD’s Indominus Rex, whose name means “fierce” or “untamable king”. For some reason, genetic engineers thought it would be a good idea to create a meaner and more terrifying version of the T. Rex; I can't wait to watch it turn everyone in the park into man-sushi. The image comes to us from the film's website, which describes the dino as the most fearsome dinosaur ever to be displayed at JURASSIC WORLD.

It continues with:

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.

Directed by Colin Trevorrow, produced by Frank Marshall, Patrick Crowley and executive produced by Steven Spielberg, JURASSIC WORLD stars Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Ty Simpkins, Nick Robinson, Irrfan Khan, Vincent D’Onofrio, Jake Johnson, Omar Sy, BD Wong and Judy Greer. It opens June 12th.
