'Jurassic World' Trailer Delivers Prehistoric Mayhem

Chris Pratt and company fend off a new genetically modified hybrid dinosaur in this preview for the franchise's newest movie

The last words anyone wants to hear before they visit a theme park populated by dinosaurs is: "If something chases you: Run!" It's a statement that promises all sorts of prehistoric mayhem, and the first trailer for Jurassic World delivers just that in full.

Amongst the numerous monsters teased in the clip are a humongous crocodile-like creature that devours a shark, a horde of bipeds frolicking through an open field and a clan of raptors that converge alongside Chris Pratt as he speeds through the jungle on a motorcycle. Jurassic World also features a "genetically modified hybrid" creature that's apparently as smart as it is bloodthirsty. As Pratt dryly puts it: "You just went and made a new dinosaur? Probably not a good idea."

The highly-anticipated Jurassic World is being produced by the original film's director, Steven Spielberg, and is slated to open June 12th, 2015 — some 14 years after the franchise's last entry,  Jurassic Park III. (It's directed by Colin Trevorrow, the filmmaker behind the Sundance sleeper hit Safety Not Guaranteed.) Earlier this year, Jurassic Park celebrated its 21st anniversary of its theatrical debut, and to mark the occasion, John Williams' iconic score was released on 180-gram vinyl. Some random copies were even printed on special "Dilophosaurus"-colored vinyl (that's the one that spits venom in poor Newman's face), while 1,000 editions were aptly printed on "translucent amber" vinyl.
