A Peek At Jurassic World's Genetically Modified Dinosaur

January 30, 2015

This is the first peek (if you can call a silhouette a peek) at Indominus Rex, the genetically modified killer dinosaur the scientists in Jurassic World decided it would be a good idea to play God and create. *shaking fist* You fools! Just kidding, I'd still hit it.

We set out to make Indominus the most fearsome dinosaur ever to be displayed at Jurassic World. The genetic engineers at our Hammond Creation Lab have more than delivered. At first glance, Indominus most closely resembles a T. Rex. But its distinctive head ornamentation and ultra-tough bony osteoderms can be traced from Theropods known as Abeliosaurs. Indominus' horns have been placed above the eye orbit through genetic material hybridized from Carnotaurus, Majungasaurus, Rugops and Giganotosaurus. Fearsome indeed.


Indominus' roar is estimated to reach 140-160db--the same as a 747 taking off and landing. And it can reach speeds of 30 mph...while confined to its enclosure. Come experience Indominus Rex for yourself beginning this summer. If you dare.

Obviously, Chris Pratt will have to come along and save the day and melt my heart all over again and I will buy a poster of him and hang it above my bunk bed and if they don't sell posters then I'll make my own in Photoshop and we'll live happily ever after, the end.

Keep going for a shot of its enclosure and a closeup of its snout.

Thanks to Jennifer, who tried to tell me dinosaurs had hair. That's cool, I like a little peach fuzz.

    Genetically altered with a super long middle finger. When it flips you off you know it.

  • Chaz Gomez

    Meh... From the sillouette I would say they crossed a t-rex with a velociraptor...

  • Wiley

    Obviously you just put a t-rex head on a diplodocus or apatasaurus body (the super big, long neck dinos)
    Mixing carnivores with similar carnivores, how boring.

    It's amazing how versatile Photoshop's "clouds" filter is.

    fuck the feathers

  • disqus_k2QxOV9H7Z

    Kinky!

    Maybe they should give it laser eyes and the ability to breathe fire, too. I mean, fuck it. The train is already derailing, so let's at least get our money's worth on this shit.

  • Let's be realistic here. Laser eyes? Fire breathing? Just cross it with spider DNA to give it 4 more arms, and eagle DNA so everyone knows it was born in the USA.

  • Jordan Nass

    I actually want to see this. The spider part, at least.

  • stuffsticks

    And so ridiculously obese it had to be wheeled into the arena. Proper American

  • Fred

    At least they are calling it genetically modified to explain away the plot devices this time. I still get annoyed that people think Jurassic Park's giant raptors is how they actually looked.

  • Jordan Nass

    And one of the dinos had feathers. And the T-Rex's nostrils were in the wrong location in JP1. Who cares? Did any of that really take away from the movie? Not really, the boring plot took care of that.

  • Fred

    Dinosaurs potentially having feathers hadn't been discovered or at least confirmed at the time of the first film. Minor details like nostril placement I can live with but I distinctly recall being seriously disappointed after seeing the film and then going to a museum and seeing what velociraptors really looked like. Yes I was about 5 at the time but changing an entire species to fit their direction is bizzare. You wouldn't make a film about lions and make them all bright purple for no apparent reason...

  • Ed

    The Jurassic Park raptors were much bigger than Veliciraptor, but the right size for Utahraptor. Apparently the newer bigger species wasn't known to the author at the time so he made the little ones bigger.

  • guest

    Production value is soooo low...

  • Ed

    Everyone hurry up and get excited for another Brontosaurus size disappointment of a Jurassic Park sequel. The only way I will see this movie is if they confirm no one from the last two has touched it.

  • Jordan Nass

    What about the first movie? That one was thoroughly mediocre as well. Frankly I think #3 was the best; I cut to the chase and didn't have any filler.

  • Frédéric Purenne

    Why taunt it so much? All it needed was longer forearms, not longer claws...
