A teaser trailer for Jurassic World has been released by Universal Pictures. The project, starring Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Judy Greer, and Jake Johnson, hits theaters June 12, 2015. Johnson, who starred this year in the hit film Let’s Be Cops, previously worked with Jurassic World director Colin Trevorrow in the first rate 2012 feature Safety Not Guaranteed.
The movie’s full length trailer debuts on Thanksgiving during an NBC night of football (6 pm pt) as the Seattle Seahawks take on the San Francisco 49ers.
Thought it runs barely twenty seconds, the teaser gives us a foreboding tone, as evidenced by its haunting sampling of John Williams‘ score and the somber visages of Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard.

Although it’s accurate to describe The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part Ias a disappointment, those expectations should be tempered considering it is: A) The #1 movie in this weekend and B) It made a whopping $123 million!
The first two Hunger Games films opened up substantially better with a weekend debut take of $152 and $158 million, and maybe the oft-used phrase “sequel fatigue” may apply to the franchise. Still, Mockingjay dominated the rest of the competition, with Big Hero 6 a million miles behind with a $20.1 million haul. Here’s the top 10:
The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 – Katniss Everdeen’s arrows still hit the mark. $123 million
Big Hero 6 – One of this year’s finest films, Big Hero 6 took in $20.1 million. Domestically, it’s reached over $135.7 million.
Interstellar – Dad and daughter space opera from Christopher Nolan makes $15.1 million. To date, it’s grossed $120.69 million stateside.
Dumb and Dumber To – $13.8 million
Gone Girl – $2.815 million
Beyond The Lights – $2.63 million
St. Vincent – $1.9 million
Fury – $1.9 million and with just $79.15 earned domestically, this WWII tank film has been a slight disappointment for Sony.
Birdman – $1.855 million
The Theory of Everything – $2.79 million, but it’s per screen average of $10,700 bodes well for the film’s theatrical longevity.
