When I was eleven, Michael Crichton’s Jurassic Park made a huge impact upon me. I watched it in Texas with a dozen or more family members and what seemed like 100,000 people, packing the seats around me. We’d all been drawn to the creatures we’d loved all our lives. Oh, and we also wanted to see them just go nuts.
I enjoyed the movie so much that I came home and purchased the paperback. It was the first adult novel I’d ever read. I read it in less than a week. You might say I devoured it like a Tyrannosaurus rex devours a goat. Um, or you might not. Either way, since then, I’ve been super excited to see this franchise grow (yes, even with the third movie). Now, we have Jurassic World, and it just looks great!
Check out these three posters from the upcoming film and enjoy the trailer, of course – all courtesy of Universal Pictures and Legendary Entertainment. When you’re finished, leave a comment and stop by the theater on June 12. I’ll save you a seat.
