s this the plot to the fourth installment of the Jurassic Park franchise, the Chris Pratt-starring Jurassic World? Find your local purveyor of salt, buy some, and then take it; but if it is real, then people are still making some impressively horrible dinosaur-cloning decisions.
According to JoBlo, Jurassic Park is back in business, but business appears to be flagging. So someone has the fantastic idea to start mixing dinosaur DNA together to create new dinosaurs. Somehow, they end up with a tyrannosaurus rex, a velociraptor, a snake and a cuttlefish — because of its camouflage abilities — that inadvertently creates a perfect killing machine that of course gets loose and starts eating people. It's basically like evil dinosaur Predator.
How to stop a monster that was obviously going to murder everything it saw from day one? Good dinosaurs, trained by Chris Pratt's characters, including a regular T.rex and velociraptor.
You can read a bit more over at JoBlo, if you're so inclined.
A user over at JPLegacy.org has apparently received legitimate maps from the set of Jurassic World. The maps, which looks like the kind of simplified cartographic graphics you frequently find in theme parks, are chock full of interesting, nostalgic and potentially spoilerific details. With this in mind, continue with caution.
Now, although we can't obviously assume these maps give away important plot details, they certainly suggest some of the things we might be seeing.
One of the most stark aspects about these images is how nostalgic for the original Jurassic Park they are. Many of the dinosaurs we saw are featured again, while things such as The Egg Spinner (which is presumably a ride) also reference elements of the first film.
However, there are also some exciting new details - primarily the Jurassic World Lagoon. This central location seems to be of specific importance, especially considering it seems to house the Visitors Center and a 'Sea Parks'-esque display area. Now, I'm only guessing, but I'm expecting the Mosasaurus feeding show doesn't go exactly to plan. Another interesting spot is the Pachy Arena, which is presumably an amphitheater in which you can watch Pachycephalosaurus literally go head-to-head. It's not exactly ethical, which could in fact be a subtle subtext of how Jurassic World is ran.
There is, of course, one glaringly obvious omission from this dino-line-up. Where exactly are the raptors? Considering they've been one of the star antagonists - along with the T-Rex - of all the Jurassic Park films, I imagine they are included, but where?
