One of the tricks of continuing to make more Jurassic movies is creating dinosaurs that are scarier than the movie that came before. For me, it is hard to beat the original Jurassic Park’s Raptors and T-Rex. It all comes down to the scene of “where’s the goat!?” and then that terrifying kitchen chase. You know the ones I’m talking about. For Jurassic World, a new dinosaur had to be bigger and badder than ever before. Queue Indominous Rex, a hybrid dino that is everyone’s worst dino nightmare. Some new photos have been released showing how terrifying this dinosaur just might be when Jurassic World hits theaters in June.
Now, before you see Indominus Rex, here is a description of this dinosaur and the opportunity for you to not scroll to the bottom if you DON’T WANT SPOILERS. We’ll also throw the trailer in just for extra precaution for those who really don’t want spoilers. So… if you want to have that terrifying reveal in the movie that you received the moment you met the Tyrannosaurus Rex in Jurassic Park, time to leave this page.
“We set out to make Indominus the most fearsome dinosaur ever to be displayed at Jurassic World. The genetic engineers at our Hammond Creation Lab have more than delivered.
At first glance, Indominus most closely resembles a T. Rex. But its distinctive head ornamentation and ultra-tough bony osteoderms can be traced from Theropods known as Abeliosaurs. Indominus’ horns have been placed above the eye orbit through genetic material hybridized from Carnotaurus, Majungasaurus, Rugops and Gigantosaurus. Fearsome indeed.
Indominus’ roar is estimated to reach 140-160db—the same as a 747 taking off and landing. And it can reach speeds of 30 mph…while confined to its enclosure. Come experience Indominus Rex for yourself beginning this summer. If you dare.”
This image of the Indominus Rex really is quite terrifying… especially when thinking of just how big, fast, and loud it will be…
What do you think of it?
Make it a GREAT day!
