Full 'Jurassic World' Trailer Opens the Park, Unleashes a Dino-Monstrosity

Prepare to ride shotgun in the Bubblecar.

The full trailer for Jurassic World reveals that the sweetest ride on Isla Nublar is actually called the Gyrosphere.  The trailer shows off some healthy competition with a motorcycle, though, a boss hog the rider of which gets company from the scariest dinosaurs on the island.

Vehicular coolness aside, Universal Pictures unveiled the Jurassic World trailer early today, jumping the gun on a planned Thanksgiving debut.

And we're thankful for the early premiere, because this trailer is a humdinger.

From the jump, this peak at next summer's Jurassic Park sequel establishes that this is a different deal than the last two installments or even Steven Spielberg's 1993 original.  While that one was a disastrous test run for the dinosaur park and the second two were romps on the wild Site B, Jurassic World takes place in a fully operational theme park.

"It sees more than 20,000 visitors every day," director and co-writer Colin Trevorrow explained recently. "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."

The park is open and mankind is in control.  Until, of course, scientific overreach brings disaster in the form of a D-Rex, a genetic hybrid that's too damn ferocious.  To hunt a creature nature never made, Chris Pratt's going to need his gang, the most dangerous posse in the park:

Why oh why would anybody genetically smoosh together the unseen D-Rex?

"This creation exists to fulfill a corporate mandate—they want something bigger, louder, with more teeth. And that’s what they get," Trevorrow said.

"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?" the Safety Not Guaranteed director asked. "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."

We don't know about you, but we're on board.  We were on board even before we saw Chris Pratt tearing around the jungle alongside a gang of raptors.  Now that's a "holy shit" trailer moment for anybody whose childhood psyche was jacked up by the velociraptors.

Pratt leads a new cast that includes Bryce Dallas Howard, Omar Sy, Vincent D'Onofrio, Jake Johnson, Irrfan Khan, Lauren Lapkus, Nick Robinson, and Ty Simpkins. This trailer reveals that Judy Greer's "small but poignant" role is Robinson and Simpkins's mom back on the mainland.

The only actor returning from previous installments is BD Wong, who appeared in Jurassic Park as geneticist Henry Wu.

Jurassic World is set for June 12, 2015.  For the first time since 1993, we're excited to go back to the park.
