Godzilla wrote:Jurassic world 2 trailer this Thursday. Hopefully giant sloth, giant crocodile, giant shark and maybe..... A dragon.....or at the very least, raptors with feathers.
Get the strawberry float out with that shite. I don't give a damn what the science says about dinosaurs possibly having feathers, I don't want to see that guff in movies. Dinosaurs are cool because they were big, bad, scary monsters. If they were giant turkeys no one would care.
A turkey, huh? OK, try to imagine yourself in the Cretaceous Period. You get your first look at this "six foot turkey" as you enter a clearing. He moves like a bird, lightly, bobbing his head. And you keep still because you think that maybe his visual acuity is based on movement like T-Rex - he'll lose you if you don't move. But no, not Velociraptor. You stare at him, and he just stares right back. And that's when the attack comes. Not from the front, but from the side...
I think we need a full on Dinosaur romp with feathers to better assess whether or not they are scarier without. Also, a lot of them would've probably had downy fluff in infancy, replaced by spines/quills in adulthood. The likelihood of Adult Turkey T-Rex is very low.
Then again though, can you imagine the Jungle Book if all the cute furry animals were hairless?
I really hope that's not the end of the film they've just shown, also why show the reveal and kill moment, it would have been nice to have that as a surprise like the end of Jurassic World. Overall it looks ok, I'm sure the next trailer will show there is more to the movie than that.

It's not. The end is believed to be a sequence not even shown in the trailer, but which was seen in the behind the scenes vid the other day. In the mansion
I think that's the most cynical trailer I've seen in a while, playing only to nostalgia and spectacle. The snippets of plot we get are absurd, the few lines of dialogue are cringeworthy (though admittedly out of context) and there's no hook to speak of. Books/covers etc but I'm willing to bet this'll be hot garbage and the end of the series.
Enjoyed the synchronised dinosaur swimming bit at the end there though.
