Colin Trevorrow, the writer and director of the upcoming Jurassic World 3, premiered his new short over the weekend. “Battle at Big Rock” takes place in the “Jurassic World” universe. Though unannounced, it attracted nearly half a million views on YouTube. Furthermore, it appeared on cable network FX Sunday night.
The movie takes place after the most recent “Jurassic World” film, “Fallen Kingdom,” which culminates in numerous species of dinosaur being unleashed into the outside world. The film stars André Holland (“Castle Rock”) and Natalie Martinez (“The I-Land”). It centers on a family camping at Big Rock National Park. Unexpectedly, they have a memorable encounter with a family of Nasutoceratops and an Allosaurus. The short runs roughly eight minutes.
Trevorrow co-wrote the script along with “Jurassic World 3” scribe Emily Carmichael and produced the film quietly in Ireland last year.
