Venture capitalist John Hammond’s dreams of a dinosaur theme park have finally come to fruition. 20 years ago, when he first gave the idea a try, things didn’t go so well. But since then the InGen Corp has smoothed out the bumps and wrinkles of that earlier scaly situation.
Not only have the InGen labs genetically reconstituted and cloned a cavalcade of fabulous heretofore extinct creatures, they’ve been able to seamlessly incorporate these monsters into a fully functioning vacation spot: incredible earth-shaking dinosaur attractions and petting zoos mixed with first-class hotel accommodations and shopping.
In fact, Jurassic World has been running so smoothly that it’s almost become, trapped in the amber of its own success. That’s why the park’s investors have been calling for something bigger, faster and scarier to add to the attraction lineup. So the lab boys whipped up a genetically spliced-together super beast that’s a blend of DNA strands from the T. rex, velociraptors and a bunch of other top-secret sources those science guys are keeping under wraps. The point is: this gigantic terror is an incredible nightmare of a dinosaur: smart, powerful and fearsome and sure to be a massive draw, they call it Indominus rex.
A new enormous attraction, however, just means more hard work for Claire, the park’s administrator. She’s been frantically pulling everything together before revealing this new beastie to the public. It’s a hectic job, she knows her business and she knows how to make these kinds of things work.
That includes dealing with staff members, like the rugged ex-military guy Owen, who management brought in to care for the raptors and evaluate patterns of vulnerability. Owen is raising all kinds of silly questions about the safety and wisdom of genetically creating something like the I. rex.
That company-focused tune, changes when the sly Indominus starts developing abilities the lab tests never predicted. And when the giant concoction manages to escape even the most imposing of confines and begins killing everything in sight, at that point Claire quickly runs straight to Owen for a real chat about business. By then, everyone else is running as well.
