‘Jurassic World’ Video – Go Inside the Hammond Creation Lab

Jurassic World_screengrab

A new Age of Dinosaurs starts here at The Hammond Creation Lab. In our state of the art facilities, the world’s greatest living paleogeneticists work to extract, sequence and assemble the DNA necessary to bring dinosaurs back from extinction to Jurassic World. Watch the scientists in the Hammond Creation Lab bring dinosaurs to life through our patented de-extinction process.

Plot:

This film picks up twenty-two years after Jurassic Park. When Derek [Connolly] and I sat down to find the movie, we looked at the past two decades and talked about what we’ve seen. Two things came to the surface.

One was that money has been the gasoline in the engine of our biggest mistakes. If there are billions to be made, no one can resist them, even if they know things could end horribly.

The other was that our relationship with technology has become so woven into our daily lives, we’ve become numb to the scientific miracles around us. We take so much for granted.

Those two ideas felt like they could work together. What if, despite previous disasters, they built a new biological preserve where you could see dinosaurs walk the earth…and what if people were already kind of over it? We imagined a teenager texting his girlfriend with his back to a T-Rex behind protective glass. For us, that image captured the way much of the audience feels about the movies themselves. “We’ve seen CG dinosaurs. What else you got?” Next year, you’ll see our answer.

Directed by Colin Trevorrow. Stars Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Ty Simpkins, Nick Robinson, Jason Schwartzman, Omar SY, Irrfan Khan, BD Wong, Judy Greer, Katie McGrath, Lauren Lapkus, and Vincent D’Onofrio.

‘Jurassic World’ hits theaters June 12th, 2015.
