Another mockbuster has come along to trick gullible people into renting a movie they thought was Jurassic World. Here’s the first trailer for Jurassic City (only a city? Pshaw!), which releases on DVD February 3rd and describes itself as, “This ain’t no walk in the park.” *sad trombone*
The trailer is predictably filled with inception BRAMS and submarine noises but not nearly enough sad trombones. It was written and directed by Sean Cain and stars Twin Peaks‘ Ray Wise (the only one I recognized) as well as Dana Melanie, Kevin Gage, Vernon Wells, Kayla Carlyle, and Robert LaSardo.
The official synopsis promises “hot sorority girls” and “muscle-bound military”, among other things.
When a top-secret laboratory is unexpectedly breached, thousands of rampaging raptors are unleashed on Los Angeles! A black-ops unit is mobilized to contain the creatures before they cause city-wide chaos. Simultaneously, a truckload of raptors is rerouted to a nearby prison. Upon their escape, these ferocious flesh-eaters are beyond containment. This is Jurassic judgment night for smoking hot sorority girls, sinister scientists, muscle-bound military and doomed death-row inmates! It’s about to get bloody in Jurassic City!
Jurassic City joins the august ranks of other mockbusters like Almighty Thor, 2010: Moby Dick, Atlantic Rim, Abraham Lincoln V. Zombies, Age Of The Hobbits, as well as Sherlock Holmes, which coincidentally also included dinosaurs.
