Let’s talk fanboys and fangirls, there’s a new installment to that one franchise that’s 65 million years in the making. And the big twist about Jurassic World is the fact that it’s primary dino antagonist happens to be the genetically engineered Indominus Rex. I guess we can call him I-Rex for short, right?
The official site posted some new images and info on the monster straight out of every kids what if journal.
We set out to make Indominus the most fearsome dinosaur ever to be displayed at Jurassic World. The genetic engineers at our Hammond Creation Lab have more than delivered…At first glance, Indominus most closely resembles a T. Rex. But its distinctive head ornamentation and ultra-tough bony osteoderms can be traced from Theropods known as Abeliosaurs. Indominus’ horns have been placed above the eye orbit through genetic material hybridized from Carnotaurus, Majungasaurus, Rugops and Giganotosaurus. Fearsome indeed…..Indominus’ roar is estimated to reach 140-160db—the same as a 747 taking off and landing. And it can reach speeds of 30 MPH while confined to its enclosure. Come experience Indominus Rex for yourself beginning this summer. If you dare.
As the June 12, 2015 release date approaches I’m a bit on the fence about this guy. I mean he sounds cool but if I was to say engineer a dinosaur I feel like it would need a bit more oomph. Like maybe wings, metal scales and the ability to breathe fire because that would be totally scientifically unsound but undeniably awesome.
And in the landscape of a franchise where it’s original creator, Michael Crichton, spent time trying to make the theories behind it plausible, the creature, as it is, has some grounds there. But come on this is part four in a series that’s been absent from cinemas since 2001, all bets are off!
So what he has more teeth, doesn’t the terrifying I-Rex leave you wanting? What do you think? Will this ferocious carnivore be a worthy addition? Can Jurassic World be good if this creation falls flat with its audience?
