Jurassic World Teaser Poster Feeds On Your Jurassic Park Nostalgia And That Is Perfectly Fine: First Official One Sheet Revealed [IMAGE]
We have reached a point in the world where anything, the smallest hint of news, is a full blown story. I am fully aware of my collusion in this sorry state of affairs, but if I may: have you seen the Jurassic World poster?
That's it. There is nothing else here. Director Colin Trevorrow tweeted the pic last night and there is not even a hint of anything relevant to the plot that we did not already know. The iconic image, mimicking the original movie's poster has been given a sleek silver metal hue on a smoky black background. The film's tagline 'The Park Is Open' sits ominously on the bottom, practically daring you to line up right now for tickets. That line has absolutely nothing on 'An adventure 65 million years in the making.' which even now gives me shivers.
To say that I am excited for this movie poorly defines the word 'excited'. Though Lost World and Jurassic Park III were disappointments, the original Jurassic Park was my first truly great movie-going memory and as such, I will always support the franchise. I was 10 years old in June of 1993 (yes, the original Steven Spielberg film can now legally drink) and there was not single thing wrong with any part of the day. The sunny afternoon, the summer shower in early evening, the movie, the popcorn, everything.
That is what I see and remember when I look at this poster. Jurassic Park remains one of the greatest blockbusters of all time; a perfect marriage of story, characters and effects (and the music, oh the music). Let us hope that Jurassic World can make us again remember what it's like to be that 10 year old kid and seeing dinosaurs on the big screen for the very first time.
Jurassic World hits theaters on June 12, 2015. The film stars Chris Pratt, Judy Greer, Bryce Dallas Howard and Jake Johnson.
