Jurassic World (2015)
First up is Jurassic World, starring Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard, the long in development next installment of the Jurassic Park film franchise. It’s now been over two decades since the events that we saw detailed in the first flick, and it appears as if inGEN was finally able to get the dinosaur theme park up and running and open for business. This extended teaser trailer for any fan of these films is simply delicious. Countless scenes of an actual working park, something that we could only imagine back in ’93 when John Hammond promised us a Dino Disney World, just whet my appetite for more.
But the stand out FRAME that made me completely nerdgasm in delight is when Jaws is hoisted slowly over the water of a gigantic aquatic amphitheater only to be gobbled up in a single bite by the enormous Komodo dragon like Mosasaur after it leaps from the murky waters below. Holy “S” “H” and an “IT” Shamu! What the Hell did I just see…more, more…I wanna see more! Some fun details in the FRAME are the numerous park patrons in the stands videoing the event on their iPhones and other such cellular devices, nice touch filmmakers. As for Jurassic World, I’ve got my fastpasses and oversized turkey legs in hand, and I am ready to ride all the rides June 12, 2015. This trailer delivered.
Framed: Movie Trailers
I could spoon feed you the same old mushy meal that is your standard movie trailer review. I could go into depth and detail describing tidbits that you could simply see for yourself by watching it countless times in heavy rotation on YouTube until you’ve cooked your noodle and seared every nugget of footage into your corneas…but that’s not what FRAMED is. A trailer is a tease, a glimpse, a snapshot of what the movie is and what it could be and FRAMED is exactly that. It’s about finding that one single shot, one moment, one individual FRAME that lingers with you and propels you to zip over to the nearest multiplex with Mike n’ Ikes and a large diet soda in tow and form a line a year in advance of the film’s release.
At what point did I step into my FLUX powered stainless steel beauty and in a SNAP, CRACKLE, POP back a couple of decades to relive my adolescents but this time in the glory of full HD and mind-blowing CGI? The movies coming out in 2015 are stirring up my juicy nostalgic core with the same intense fever and excitement that gripped me with going to movies in my youth. It’s the 80’s and early 90’s once again and I couldn’t be more eager to see these flicks coming…and I don’t think I’m alone in that regards.
