Colin Trevorrow‘s Jurassic World-inspired short film Battle at Big Rock is now available for your viewing pleasure. Complete with bonafide Hollywood talent both in front of the camera and behind it, this short film takes place in a world where humans and dinosaurs co-exist, though not always peacefully. Carnivores are going to do what they were evolved to do, just the same as veggiesaurs, but in our modern world these prehistoric predators are discovering that we humans can make for some tasty morsels. The bad news for these big guys is that our ability to use tools and work together still gives us the evolutionary advantage, as seen in this new short.
Clearly an homage to moments from the Jurassic Park franchise, Trevorrow’s short feels a bit like a spiritual sequel of sorts to The Lost World, specifically the somewhat dysfunctional family unit that’s taking residence in an RV. Sure, in the movie, that vehicle is less recreational and more of a mobile lab while the short sees it put to use for its original purpose, but the dino DNA is still there in the frames. Luckily, no one uses gymnastics to dispatch a hungry dinosaur this time around, but you’ll have to watch to see how it all ends up.
