'Jurassic World Dominion' Newest Dino Is "Just Like The Joker", Somehow

Jurassic Park is often hailed as one of the greatest films of all time, and rightly so. The dinosaurs of Steven Spielberg's 1993 classic outshine even some of the most advanced special effects today. Personally, I still can't watch the raptor kitchen scene without holding my breath for a full five minutes. Just me?

Despite its success, I don't think anyone really saw a fun little film about dinosaurs going on to become one of the world's most popular franchises 30 years later but hey, here we are and we're all the better for it. With each instalment, the Jurassic World trilogy has always one-upped its previous big bad.

Our Tom Ryan-Smith had the chance to chat to Jeff Goldblum - who plays Ian Malcolm - about one of our favourite sim games from last year, Jurassic World Evolution 2! Wow. Oh my.

Our question as to what could possibly be scarier than a tyrannosaurus rex - undeniably one of the most deadly dinosaurs to have existed - was quickly answered with the introduction of the fictional indominus rex. 'What could be worse than that?' we call declared once more in exasperation. The answer, the indoraptor. Besting the indoraptor, Jurassic World: Dominion's director Colin Trevorrow had some interesting comments on the series' latest carnivorous villain.

Fans will soon be introduced to Giga, which sounds kind of cute, but in actuality the full-name giganotosaurus will prove to be Jurassic World's most deadly foe to date. In an interview with Empire magazine, Trevorrow explained, "I wanted something that felt like the Joker. It just wants to watch the world burn."

Unlike Jurassic World's previous big bads, the giganotosaurus is known to have actually existed. The species is larger - both in height and length - than a tyrannosaurus rex and it had an extra finger, which we suppose must be helpful. In all honesty, the dinosaur probably just wants to be left alone to do its thing rather than watch the world burn, but it looks as if its plans for world domination will prove entertaining for us cinema-goers.
