Well, I certainly didn’t see this coming. Having released a new TV spot the other day, I thought that we had seen the last of new Jurassic World footage. However, only a few days away from the film’s theatrical release, Universal has given us one more theatrical/international trailer.
In all honesty though, with the exception of watching the genetically spliced dinosaur hatch, there really isn’t much new footage in this trailer. This probably is for the best, the more I think about it. We already have number of trailers, giving away a lot of the film’s big scenes. It’s probably for the best, if the trailers didn’t show any more.
The biggest difference presented in this trailer is the tone. This trailer presents a very bleak depressing and terrifying film, where things will not end well. This is very different in comparison with the other trailers’ adventurous tone.
While being a very different kind of trailer, I think it works. While I hardly believe the entire film will have this tone (as evidence, I hold up the first Jurassic Park film), but I do think that a certain degree of horror is essential for a film of this nature.
