‘Jurassic World’s’ Hybrid Dinosaur Named ‘Indominus Rex’

It’s not easy reviving a classic franchise that’s earned over $ 1 billion in its worldwide box office grossing, but when director/writer Colin Treverrow decided to kickstart “Jurassic World,” he’s actualizing the park, and he’s bringing in a genetically modified dinosaur with a new name. Read on for further details.

In November 2014, the web was filled with trailers for movies that are coming in 2015. It was started by “Fifty Shades of Grey” then “Avengers: Age of Ultron” and then the revival of the 1993 film “Jurassic Park” — “Jurassic World.” Everyone had mixed feelings over the two-minute, 45 seconds preview that Universal Pictures released. The trailer showed the full actualization of the dinosaur theme park with every reptilian bred under captivity and in full control. Of course, the big twist of the film thrived as the geneticists of the park created new specie that outwitted every living dinosaur that once roamed the earth. And this new guy is the prime reason for the chaos that’s about to unfold. This supposed creature is still left anonymous.


According to Screen Rant, the new dinosaur that the “Jurassic World” has cooked up is different and unrivaled. Lots of names were speculated, but it was from the latest post by an Instagram “Jurassic Park” fan account Jurassic_world2015 that gave us a preview about the new name for the genetically modified dino. The account had a list of leaked toy products with their respective images and among the new-looking ones were “Indominus Rex” and “Mega Strike T-Rex.”

The geneticists of “Jurassic World” basically developed a blood-thirsty monster they cannot control, but the thing is they haven’t named it yet, or they have not yet released the official name of this monstrosity. Although, the studio somewhat named it the “D-Rex” with the D standing for Diabolus. There is also the “Indominus Rex.” Such names that were speculated suggest that they belong to the one hybrid they created, but who knows, there could be another monster that the movie is actually hiding.

The studio has not released any official statement yet to confirm, but the “Indominus Rex” seemed like the most likely choice for the hybrid because the word “indominus” is akin to the word “untameable.” And judging by the way Chris Pratt’s character rode with the velociraptors in the film’s first trailer, the dinosaurs in the park are now finally controlled with the one exception of the thing they created.

Looks like everyone will have to wait for further updates and press releases coming from Universal Pictures. A “Jurassic World” TV spot preview is set in time for NBC’s Super Bowl XLIX on Feb. 1, 2015 and it will open in theaters this June 12, 2015.

That concludes our update regarding “Jurassic World’s” hybrid dino. Continue visiting Movie News Guide (MNG) for more movie updates.
