Director Colin Trevorrow recently revealed details on Jurassic World, and the new fear -- the Indominus Rex.
Trevorrow spoke to Entertainment Weekly recently about the manufactured beast, that is essentially a "hybrid of specific dinosaurs with great movie names like the Giganotosaurus and Majungasaurus, as well as other animals that exist in the world today," in both technical and psychological terms.
"The Indominus was meant to embody our worst tendencies. We're surrounded by wonder and yet we want more. And we want it bigger, faster, louder, better," he said. "And in the world of the movie the animal is designed based on a series of corporate focus groups. Like in the same way a lot of movies are. They sit a bunch of people down and they ask them, 'What can we do to make the dinosaurs more entertaining for you? What would make you tell a friend to come to Jurassic World?' And their answer is, of course, 'We want to see something bigger, faster, louder, more vicious; we want a killer.' And they get what what they ask for."
The director also dished about his inspirations when trying to delineate the villainous traits of dinosaur, and his imagination drew out some of the iconic baddies in film history.
"It's a classic villain to me because it's comparatively synthetic to the other dinosaurs," he said. "You know, Frankenstein and Darth Vader and even Captain Hook, there are parts to them that aren't entirely organic. Indominus sort of makes the dinosaurs feel like real animals. It's an abomination that must be exterminated."
Jurassic World stars Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Irrfan Khan, Vincent D'Onofrio, Jake Johnson and Judy Greer.
The film will hit theaters on June 12, 2015.
