Just when you thought the three official trailers for Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom were already crawling with dino-sized shockers, this latest TV spot unearths a spoiler that was only hinted at between all the teeth, claws, and explosions.
**SPOILER WARNING: DANGEROUS REVEALS LURK BEYOND THIS POINT!**
You know how the third trailer teases Blue's destiny as something other than being auctioned off in a cage like the T-rex and the other species? If you’ve been ravenous to know exactly what that is all about, you do now. Turns out InGen wants to use Blue’s genes to genetically engineer an entirely new life form.
“Blue’s DNA will form the architecture of a completely new creature,” says a disembodied voice in the spot below as shots flash across the screen: the raptor on someone’s tablet; cryogenically frozen tubes of dino DNA; and an eerie shot of what looks like an IV extracting blood.
The next scene shows lab personnel lifting the lid of an incubation pod with some abnormally sized eggs. Creepy.
Blue is the last of her kind. She is the only trained velociraptor from the IBRIS (Integrated Behavioral Raptor Intelligence Study) project known to have survived the unleashing of Indominus Rex on unsuspecting humans and dinosaurs. Now think back to that pre-destruction scene in Jurassic World when Navy vet Owen (Chris Pratt) disagreed with Barry (Omar Sy) about trained raptors being used for military operations. Is this “creature” being developed to be a living weapon?
The following scenes show the Jurassic Park franchise’s newest hybrid, the Indoraptor, climbing the Lockwood mansion, terrorizing Maisie, and facing off against Blue. All of which opens up another question: Could this be that “creature”? Were Blue’s genes used to create this monster? Or is she being exploited for something else?
Whatever end this experiment was designed for is apparently still locked away in InGen’s confidential files, but Owen made one thing clear: “If we don’t shut this down,” he warns, “everything changes.”
There is one thing we do know about the future of Fallen Kingdom’s prehistoric beasts. Jurassic World 3 director Colin Trevorrow swears that there will be no more DNA mashups after the Indoraptor, but no one can really trust Dr. Henry Wu.
Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom emerges in theaters on June 22.
