Earlier this week, cinephiles were all aflutter about the surprise teaser trailer for the newest installment in the Jurassic Park franchise. But the preview for the future summer blockbuster of 2015 revealed a very predictable premise promising to rehash the same tired formula: two kids in a seemingly dino-tastic safari ultimately getting chased by angry, unleashed CGI monsters. You'd think the parents would have learned to steer their children away from live dinosaur zoos by now, but plot pitfalls be damned! Executive Producer Steven Spielberg would have it no other way. Play it safe, all the way to the bank. So let us congratulate the once-revolutionary Hollywood Icon on another solid corporate investment. We offer him the gift of grog, although he'll have to phone home to the East Coast to catch this one, if he can.
