Jurassic World: Meet That New “Cooked Up” Dinosaur, Indominus Rex!

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Remember that dinosaur that Chris Pratt talked about being “cooked up” in Bryce Dallas Howard’s lab in the Jurassic World trailer?

Well, now we have our first look at that bad boy and it’s easy to see why those Raptors are running alongside Pratt as they go after the villain who looks like he will make the T. Rex in Jurassic Park look like Bambi.

Now, it’s just a tease, but it is enough to scare us and certainly has our anticipation meter going ever higher for the first Jurassic Park movie in years.

Here’s what the official Jurassic World site said describing their new dino!

"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 Giganotosaurus. 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."

Pratt and Howard are joined by Jake Johnson, Ty Simpkins and Judy Greer.

Look for Jurassic World on June 12 and until then, watch Jurassic Park online to see how it all got started.
