Judging by the box office numbers, I think I’m safe in assuming you’ve seen Jurassic World. $200 million plus in one weekend. If you haven’t, you may want to avoid the video embedded below.
YouTuber Mr. Sunday Movies has deconstructed every easter egg and reference in Jurassic World from the previous Jurassic Park films. It even reminds you how terrible The Lost World looked. Thank god for technology.
Sit back and hold on to your butts. The video clocks in at just over 7 minutes. Jurassic World pays homage to the first film, Jurassic Park while glancing over the two sequels. The night vision goggles, the raptors and our favorite dinosaur, the T-Rex, is back.
It’s actually the same T-Rex from the first film, complete with the raptor scarring from the final fight in the first movie.
References to chaos theory and even Ian Malcolm makes an appearance briefly via a book shown on screen.
Oh, who could forget this scene from the first movie? Ian Malcolm’s laugh. It’s random and beyond hilarious. Have fun with it stuck in your head the rest of the day.
One thing I thought was missing that would have been awesome in Jurassic World. Two words from the original raptor handler, Muldoon. Why couldn’t Chris Pratt’s character have said, ‘clever girl,’ when Blue decided to fight for the humans? It would have been perfect.
In addition to the Jurassic Park references, easter eggs are everywhere in the film. Jaws reference? Yep. Other film directors provided voiceover work as announcers on the monorail. The visual effects pioneer behind the first film, Terminator and others had the restaurant named after him.
Mark off seven minutes of your time and enjoy every reference and easter egg. Jurassic World truly spared no expense in this department.
