First trailer for Jurassic World evolves the premise

I’m a big fan of the Jurassic Park franchise, even when it got kind of stupid — which basically means every film after the first. A return to people running for their lives in a dinosaur theme park sounds like a good idea, but this first trailer for the film doesn’t really give me goosebumps like it should.

Everything seems pretty cliche. Like they didn’t learn anything from the failures of the last two films. Kids in danger are basically a staple of the series now, but I wish they had gone in a slightly different direction. Even the piano solo theme feels off. I’m still hopeful, especially because I heart Chris Pratt, but this just got to be a tougher sell.
