New Jurassic World Dinosaur Is Scarier Than Those Velociraptors

New Jurassic World Dinosaur Is Scarier Than Those Velociraptors

Move over Velociraptors. There's a new dinosaur in town.

The latest sneak peek at Jurassic World Dominion has given fans a taste of what's to come, featuring a brand-new, terrifying dinosaur to worry about.

One of the deadliest dinos to be added to the park, the Atrociraptors are described as "brutal" and "vicious", and it looks like Chris Pratt's Owen Grady will be getting up-close and personal with them in the new year.

Speaking to Empire, filmmaker Colin Trevorrow gave fans a little bit more insight into the mind of the hell-raising Atrociraptor.

He said: "Where the Velociraptor is a little bit more of a stealth hunter, the Atrociraptors are a bit more brutish.

"These things will just come at you. And in this particular case, they’ve picked his scent, and they’re not going to stop until he’s dead. They’re pretty brutal. They’re pretty vicious."

Velociraptors were the original reptilian villains in the first Jurassic Park film - so if they are anything to go by, these Atrociraptors will wreak havoc.

Other pre-historic additions to the Jurassic World trilogy include the Pyroraptors, and the Moros intrepidus.

Alongside Chris Pratt and the dino cast, stars like Bryce Dallas Howard, Jeff Goldblum, Laura Dern, and Sam Neill will feature in the trilogy-closing blockbuster.

Originally, the third Jurassic World instalment was slated for a June 2021 release, but when the pandemic took hold, the film was pushed back by a full year.

After working for 18 months, and spending millions on covid tests and health measures, filming for the latest Jurassic movie finally wrapped back in November 2020.

While the plot has been mostly kept under wraps for now, Trevorrow hinted previously that the film will not follow a "traditional screenplay structure".

So far, all we can confirm is that the film will follow two individual groups of characters: Owen (Chris Pratt) and Claire (Bryce Dallas Howard), and Dr. Ellie Sattler (Laura Dern), Dr. Alan Grant (Sam Neill) and Dr. Ian Malcolm (Jeff Goldblum).
