jurassic world pitch trailer

While we’re still assimilating the news that Jurassic Park 4 will now be titled Jurassic World, and is set for a June 12, 2015 release date, the pitch trailer for Jurassic World has already leaked.  The pitch trailer features an individual scene designed to pitch the tone of the film—and it’s a Jaws-referencing doozy.  Keep in mind, however, that the scene will not be featured in the film, according to producer Frank Marshall.

OK, we should probably shut up now, as you’re probably more interested in seeing a flying dinosaur (forgive us for not being able to specifically identify the species—we’re neither paleontologists nor are we six year olds with 10-foot stacks of dinosaur books) pluck a surfer from the beach and share him in a mid-air meal with another dino, right?  Here you go:

The person who leaked the video explained the grab as follows:

All I can say is this video was shown as part of Iain McCaig’s presentation at the recent Star Wars convention in Germany (he’s the fantastic concept artist and designer of Darth Maul). I can only presume it was part of a pitch for reigniting the JP movie franchise, if anyone can confirm please let me know. It was apparently shown to Kathleen Kennedy and Steven Spielberg. Mr McCaig actually said “it certainly got Steven interested in dinosaurs again…” I just think is so cool.”

So there you go—surfers being eating alive in mid-air, something that everyone who has visited a crowded beach has wished they could see for decades, right?

What do you think of the Jurassic World pitch trailer?
