Colin Trevorrow responds to Jurassic World CGI criticisms

The first Jurassic World trailer may have dropped to mass online hysteria, but the reaction hasn’t been entirely positive, with some criticisms being raised over some of the more obvious moments of CGI.

While the original film was notable for some jaw-dropping practical effects, the new trailer contains a lot of computer-generated wizardry, including that first shot of the park’s new gates.

Co-starring Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard and Irrfan Khan, Jurassic World will open in the UK and US on 12 July 2015.
