Now that’s a mouthful–complete with dagger-sharp teeth.
Jurassic World Dominion–the much-anticipated latest entry in the celebrated Jurassic franchise–this week unveiled a startling image of a new prehistoric threat: the Giganotosaurus (Giga to its pals). And it lives up to its name. Check it out in the photo–courtesy of Empire magazine–on this page.
This scaly beastie isn’t a genetic hybrid–like the previously seen Indominus–but a giant dinosaur that actually lived in what is now Argentina during the Late Cretaceous period. This magnificent creature–which reportedly roamed the Earth more than 90 million years ago–was one of the largest known terrestrial carnivores.
Jurassic World Dominion–which stomps into theaters June 10–was directed by Colin Trevorrow from a screenplay he wrote with Emily Carmichael. The soon-to-be blockbuster is set four years after Isla Nublar has been destroyed, according to the logline, and dinosaurs now live–and hunt–alongside humans all over the globe.
“This fragile balance will reshape the future and determine whether humans remain the apex predators on a planet they now share with history’s most fearsome creatures,” according to the official synopsis.
Dominion stars Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Omar Sy, Mamoudou Athie, DeWanda Wise, Daniella Pineda, Justice Smith, Jake Johnson, Scott Haze, Campbell Scott and Dichen Lachman–along with the returning trio of Sam Neill, Laura Dern and Jeff Goldblum from Jurassic Park.
Trevorrow said this is the film he has wanted to make “from the beginning. It’s the one we have spent the last two movies building to. It really was part of a larger story, and part of the design.”
