Jurassic World director Colin Trevorrow has been pretty awesome so far when it comes to online press. He has been accommodating, releasing just enough information to keep us satisfied, but also keeping us in the dark. He's also had a bit of fun with us. When Devin at Badass Digest requested he get a photo of a recycling bin from the set, Trevorrow tweeted a pic.
That still hasn't stopped some "scoopers" from dropping spoilers. That's cool, Trevorrow just counters these rumors with facts as he has done today in an interview with /Film.
Recently, there was talk of some genetic experimention that would rear its head in Jurassic World. The director says:
We were hoping audiences could discover this on their own, but yes, there will be one new dinosaur created by the park’s geneticists. The gaps in her sequence were filled with DNA from other species, much like the genome in the first film was completed with frog DNA. This creation exists to fulfill a corporate mandate—they want something bigger, louder, with more teeth. And that’s what they get.I know the idea of a modified dinosaur put a lot of fans on red alert, and I understand it. But we aren’t doing anything here that Crichton didn’t suggest in his novels. This animal is 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.
He also presents the backdrop of the film:
Jurassic World takes place in a fully functional park on Isla Nublar. It sees more than 20,000 visitors every day. You arrive by ferry from Costa Rica. It has elements of a biological preserve, a safari, a zoo, and a theme park. There is a luxury resort with hotels, restaurants, nightlife and a golf course. And there are dinosaurs. Real ones. You can get closer to them than you ever imagined possible. It’s the realization of John Hammond’s dream, and I think you’ll want to go there.
There's a lot more to read – unless, of course, you want everything to be a surprise – so head on over to this spot for the full interview.
