It’s dinosaurs, dinosaurs and more dinosaurs in the new trailer for “Lego Jurassic World,” the video game set to hit shelves June 12. Just as it plays out in the 1993 film “Jurassic Park,” the first dinosaur we see in the trailer is a Brachiosaurus. Among the other familiar dinosaurs depicted are a Compsognathus, a Tyrannosaurus rex, a Triceratops and Velociraptors. Even the Indominus rex from the upcoming “Jurassic World” film makes an appearance. “Lego Jurassic Word” features over 20 different types of playable dinosaurs (that’s right, you can play as a dinosaur), and while the title is pegged to the upcoming film, all four movies from the “Jurassic Park” franchise are represented in the game.

In Universal’s upcoming 3-D adventure “Jurassic World,” the globe’s most unique theme park has added some exciting new attractions, including a shark-munching mosasaur and a pack of trained velociraptors. But one favorite, fearsome dinosaur will make an appearance too. “The T. Rex in this movie is the same T. Rex from ‘Jurassic Park,’” said director Colin Trevorrow, who also co-wrote the much-hyped fourth film inspired by the work of author Michael Crichton. “She’s been on the island for 22 years. She’s still alive. She’s a little older, and she’s angry.” FULL COVERAGE: Summer Movie Sneaks More than two decades after Steven Spielberg’s “Jurassic Park” wowed moviegoers with its groundbreaking depictions of prehistoric animals, Trevorrow’s “Jurassic World,” set to open June 12, is aspiring to instill the same sense of wonder by paying homage to the beloved 1993 adventure but also offering […]

In a new trailer for “Jurassic World,” the fates of 20,000 trapped tourists rest in the claws of Chris Pratt’s pack of trained velociraptors. The much anticipated fourth installment in the “Jurassic Park” franchise, inspired by the work of author Michael Crichton, introduces a new dino-foe in the Indominus rex, a genetically modified predator that out-sizes a Tyrannosaurus rex and out-smarts a velociraptor. Also, she ate her sibling. “Every time we’ve unveiled a new attraction, attendance has spiked,” the park’s asset manager Claire (Bryce Dallas Howard) says in the trailer. “Corporate felt that genetic modification would up the wow factor.” “They’re dinosaurs,” responds trainer Owen (Pratt). “Wow enough.” As in the other “Jurassic Park” films, the vicious attraction gets out of hand, and the mega-beast escapes, claws out her tracking implant and begins killing for sport, leaving a bloody trail […]
