The recent release of the last Jurassic World trailer set the internet abuzz with interest about the soon-to-be-released film, but visitors to CinemaCon received a further glimpse into the near future of the Jurassic Park franchise.
Director Colin Trevorrow and Jurassic World star Chris Pratt were on hand at the Las Vegas convention to present a sizzle reel (described by Pratt as “just the tip,” according to IGN) that further expounded on many of the scenes depicted in the trailer. Opening with a wild pig running through a forest, the footage quickly revealed the animal to be prey for a pack of Velociraptors. As an unfortunate Jurassic World employee attempts to wrangle the frightened pig, he ends up knocked into the enclosure, prompting Pratt’s character, Owen Grady, to intervene, blocking the raptors to save the man’s life.

Far more of the Indominus Rex, Jurassic World‘s primary dinosaur antagonist, was shown in the footage, according to Cinemablend. Bryce Dallas Howard’s Claire Dearing explains that ticket sales at Jurassic World spike whenever a new dinosaur is introduced, prompting the Masrani Corporation to call for the creation of the Indominus Rex. As the last trailer revealed, Dearing notes that the new dinosaur was responsible for eating its sibling.
The sizzle reel also depicted the Indominus Rex’s escape from its enclosure, and Grady’s actions to save himself. Hiding under a vehicle, he douses himself in gasoline to avoid being detected by the rampaging dinosaur. Later footage shows him calling for the evacuation of Jurassic World, though Dearing says such a move would be an overreaction (in a possible nod to Jaws). As the Inquisitr previously reported, it was revealed in the last trailer that the Indominus Rex kills for sport instead of food, depicted by a field of dead Apatosaurs.

The footage ends with the Indominus Rex attacking Zach and Gray, two young brothers played by Nick Robinson and Ty Simpkins, as they explore Jurassic World in a gyroscope, observing a group of Ankylosaurs. Meanwhile, Pterodactyls terrorize Jurassic World patrons, while one of the avian dinosaurs falls prey to the trailer’s Mosasaurus.
While CinemaCon visitors were also treated to previews for a variety of other upcoming films, Jurassic World fans have little time to wait to see the footage themselves, as the movie hits theaters on June 12.
