The opening of the world’s most dangerous theme park, Jurassic World, is less than six months away and after that explosive first teaser, that feels like six months too long. Along with the classic dino staples, the preview offered a whole new Jurassic experience for the seasoned fan. Perhaps the most controversial – and by that we mean, utterly badass – moment arose towards the end of the trailer in which Chris Pratt’s dino expert releases a row of caged raptors. And they charge alongside him while he cruises through the jungle on a motorbike in pursuit of an even bigger hybrid dino that’s been set loose.
Well, if the sight of that head-scratcher got you revved up for next summer, then cop a load of this latest photo to emerge. Taking to his Twitter account, director Colin Trevorrow tweeted the following message along with the joyous image: “Happy Holidays from the editing room. Do not try this at home.”
In the picture, Pratt stands tall with one of his new raptor “friends” while they have their picture taken. Aw… but wait, aren’t they incredibly dangerous as we were repeatedly warned by Bob Peck in the first movie? Yes and no.
At first, many assumed that the raptors had been ‘tamed,’ but according to Trevorrow that’s not the case at all. When he spoke out in the days following the trailer’s arrival, he clarified the nature of the relationship between Pratt and the beasts:
“Owen’s relationship with the raptors is complicated. They aren’t friends. These animals are nasty and dangerous and they’ll bite your head off if you make the wrong move. But there are men and women out there today who have forged tenuous connections with dangerous predators. That’s interesting territory to me.”
Nasty. Dangerous. Yes, these are two words we’ve come to associate with the cunning raptors. But really, take one look at the pic below. There’s no way this pair aren’t friends.
Jurassic World charges into theaters on June 12th, 2015.
