The world premiere of the full-length Jurassic World trailer is just days away!
Over the weekend, Universal Pictures released a 20-second teaser to promote the summer blockbuster. The footage offered a first look at dinosaurs, the park, and co-stars Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard.
Jurassic World, the fourth installment in the series, pays homage to the 1993 original. One of the most memorable scenes in Steven Spielberg's classic involved a stampede of Gallimimus dinosaurs, who sent Laura Dern and Sam Neill running for cover. The stampede of dinosaurs is back in Jurassic World, but this time, fear is no longer a factor. In fact, visitors safely ride alongside them in the park's new vehicles. To see more differences and similarities between the two films, watch the trailer in full on Thanksgiving.
NBC will premiere the sneak peek during an NFL game at 9 p.m. EST.
Pratt plays a scientist who conducts behavioral research on raptors.
According to Pratt, his character is a mix of Dr. Alan Grant (Neill) and Dr. Ian Malcolm (Jeff Goldblum). "He's got a little of both," the Guardians of the Galaxy actor, 35, told MTV in February. "He's got a little bit of the Goldblum cynicism, but also the Sam Neill excitement and the wonder of the biology of it all."
The movie takes place on Isla Nublar, which allows 20,000 visitors a day see dinosaurs up close.
Earlier this year, director ColinTrevorrow confirmed that Jurassic World will introduce audiences to a new dinosaur, which he said is "bigger, louder, with more teeth." Still, he said, it's not a "mutant freak."
"It doesn't have a snake's head or octopus tentacles. It's a dinosaur, created in the same way the others were, but now the genetics have gone to the next level," Trevorrow told SlashFilm.com via e-mail. "For me, it's a natural evolution of the technology introduced in the first film."
Jurassic World, co-starring Judy Greer, hits theaters on June 12, 2015.
