Fans got an early Thanksgiving treat yesterday, when the first trailer for Jurassic World was released, two days earlier than its previously-scheduled debut during NBC's NFL football game on Thursday. The first footage was received with mixed reactions, as several fans expressed their displeasure with the amount of obvious CGI footage used, including the shot where the massive gate into the park is revealed. Director Colin Trevorrow took to his Twitter account shortly after the trailer debuted to address these concerns, confirming that the opening gate was actually built on set.
The shot in question, where the Jurassic World gate is opened to let in hundreds of new visitors, was created specifically for the trailer. Colin Trevorrow revealed that this will look different in the finished film, which still has nearly seven months of post-production work left before the June 12, 2015 release date. It's possible that, as post-production work continues, we could see a much different version of this shot in the second trailer, although we have no clue when that will be released, or if it will even feature a new version of the gate shot.
We'll have to wait and see how this pivotal shot will change in Jurassic World, which stars Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Ty Simpkins, Nick Robinson and Vincent D'Onofrio. Take a look at Colin Trevorrow's tweets below, and stay tuned for more updates.
@alexfieldsman the gate will be practical. Real wood, concrete and steel.— Colin Trevorrow (@colintrevorrow) November 25, 2014
@TheHoyt08 The gate is practical, the environment isn't. That shot was made specifically for the trailer. The film will be different.— Colin Trevorrow (@colintrevorrow) November 25, 2014
