DINO FLICK

Whitsunday Times - - CHILL. -

OFF the back of his hit 2012 com­edy film Safety Not Guar­an­teed, Colin Trevor­row has set his sights on a big­ger, meatier prize.

Trevor­row is the direc­tor of one of 2015’s most an­tic­i­pated films, Juras­sic World.

Based on Michael Crich­ton’s novel Juras­sic Park, this is the forth in­stal­ment of the se­ries.

Set 20 years af­ter the un­for­tu­nate events por­trayed in Juras­sic Park (1993), a new di­nosaur theme park has been con­structed on the is­land of Isla Nublar, off the Costa Ri­can coast.

The fully func­tional di­nosaur theme park is built with masses of peo­ple in mind, but peo­ple’s in­ter­est in watch­ing the same dinosaurs time and time again is wan­ing, and so are ticket sales.

En­ter Owen Grady (Chris Pratt), who is tasked with cre­at­ing a ge­net­i­cally-en­gi­neered su­per di­nosaur that will bring tourists back to the strug­gling park.

Grady is suc­cess­ful in cre­at­ing the new di­nosaur, although some would say per­haps too suc­cess­ful.

The di­nosaur, not un­der­stand­ing its role as a tourist at­trac­tion, goes nuts and be­gins destroying en­clo­sures ■ WHERE: Bowen Sum­mer Gar­den Cine­mas. ■ WHEN: Thurs­day, June 11, 6.30pm, 8.55pm; Fri­day, June 12, 6.30pm, 8.55pm; Satur­day, June 13, 9.45am, 12.15pm, 6.30pm, 8.55pm; Sun­day, June 14, 9.45am, 12.15pm, 6.30pm, 8.55pm. ■ TICK­ETS: Adult $12, child (3-12 years) $9, child (un­der 3 years) free, aged pen­sion­ers, se­niors and car­ers (with card) $10. ■ PHONE: 4785 1241. around the park and men­ac­ing tourists and work­ers alike.
