Praise the Raptors! 'Jurassic World's' Bryce Dallas Howard Will Go Full Ellen Ripley

Joss Whedon can apologize, but I’m not going to; that Jurassic World clip of Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard’s stock characters and terrible dialogue was awful. That said, nothing will keep me away from any dinosaur or shark movie, and hello — this film has both!


This week a few new ***Spoilery*** photos and plot details have been released, the most intriguing of which is director Colin Trevorrow’s description of a scene that calls back to the franchise’s first film, and involves Claire Dearing’s visiting nephews ((Ty Simpkins and Nick Robinson) stuck in this thing:


“There’s a ride at the park that allows you to get into a gyroscopic sphere and be out in the wild with dinosaurs and travel beneath them—and that goes horribly wrong. Imagine being inside a sphere and then suddenly it breaks and you’re rolling like a cat with a ball of yarn.”

Clearly things do indeed go wonky:


Which leads to Howard’s park manager going full Ripley:

“Enter Claire, who morphs into an Ellen Ripley-like heroine to protect her nephews. (EW)

Howard finds those emotions very relatable, saying “Becoming a mother myself, I’ve realized being maternal is being wildly badass.”

While I’d rather have skipped the part where Claire plays uptight and demure to Pratt’s macho wiener, at least we know one of them evolves. Of the pair’s relationship, Trevorrow says: “They don’t like each other at all, and by the end that’s changed. We think that [classic conceit] absolutely can apply to a dinosaur movie.” (I’m trying not to groan.)
