TERRIBLE LIZARDS, GREAT FUN
At this point in the Jurassic Park franchise, it’s safe to say that filling a theme park with genetically engineered dinosaurs may not be in the public’s best interest. But at the same time, it’s hard to argue with watching dinosaurs fill the screen – especially when you see the looks of wonder and amazement on kids’ faces.
And because everyone loves dinos, we want to make sure your up on yours before you and your family watch add them to your collection. Because we all know the – “which dinosaur is that one?” question is as sure to pop up as sure as movie candy sticks to your teeth. So after you pre-order Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom (in up to 4K + HDR) to prepare to share the fossilized fun with your family, be sure to gather the hatchlings and check out the Mesozoic monsters and awesome facts about the dinosaurs featured in the new movie.
Don’t forget, order before release and you’ll even receive a $3 movie credit to use after release day for even more movie & TV magic.
ISLAND BEFORE TIME
In Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, Isla Nublar is home to gentle giants and powerful predators of every shape and size, and since the events of Jurassic World they are now free to roam as they please. The Brachiosaurus, an herbivore seen slowly sauntering through the plains, is famous for its long snake-like neck and is believed to have weighed between 30 and 45 metric tons when full grown. That’s a lot of salad.
The Ankylosaurus, despite it’s fearsome looking armor and clubbed tail, is also a leaf-eater that used these powerful adaptations to defend itself and its family from less vegan-friendly foes. It needs these protections because it is fairly slow, but can be seen hustling along to escape from danger in the new film.
Gallimimus, seen stampeding in multiple Jurassic Park films, is quite the opposite: what it lacks in external protection it make up for with its unbelievable running speed of up to 60 mph. This omnivore can make a snack out of you before you can say its unusual name, and predators that pursue it are in for some extremely fast food.
Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the water, who could forget the Mosasaurus? The enormous sea lizard makes a triumphant return from the first Jurassic World, and with an omnivorous diet that includes anything it can get its expanding jaw on, it’s the last thing you want to see on a day at the beach (as seen in the trailer).
The jet-black, nightmare fueling Indoraptor that stars in Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom….. doesn’t exist! And thank goodness for that. With night-vision eyes, hyper-intelligence, and razor sharp claws, it’s one piece of movie magic that we shouldn’t bring to life anytime soon.
Didn’t see your favorite? Well this is only the tip of the Pteranodon when it comes to the weird and wild creatures that populate Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom. Pre-order now to see them all and dino-size your family’s movie night.
