fans of the jurassic world franchise had to wait a lot longer than expected for the third installment of the Dino franchise, but for those who can’t wait any longer, there’s a pretty fun new website that should keep people busy for at least a while while you wait. Jurassic World: Dominion to be released in theaters. And there’s even a very amusing nod to the original jurassic park.
In the world of Jurassic World: Dominion dinosaurs are loose in the world and so Dinotracker.com exists as a way for people to keep an eye out for dinosaurs. It brings up a massive globe showing all the hotspots of dinosaur activity. Click on a location on the map and find out which dinosaur has been sighted in the area, how dangerous they are, and learn more about the dino and what to do to avoid them or how to react if you get in contact.
It’s a cool way to promote the upcoming movie, as an “in-universe” website, but it also has at least one really fun hidden easter egg that references the original. jurassic park film. If you look at the site’s code, you’ll find a small ASCII version of Wayne Knight’s code Dennis Nedry, who tried to steal dino embryos in the original jurassic park. It is precisely the version of his computer screen, which is apparently there to berate you for trying to enter the details of the site.
If there are other easter eggs hidden on the site, I haven’t found them, but it certainly wouldn’t be so surprising. The more that can be found here, the more it will occupy them while wait Jurassic World: Dominion to get out.
Dinotracker is in a way a throwback to another era. We used to have movies creating websites like this a lot more often and at least it feels like it doesn’t happen as much anymore. Maybe because jurassic world is itself a throwback to an earlier era, it’s not out of place that we get this kind of site, set in the movie universe. The new trilogy is a sequel to the original, and JUrassic World: Dominion will even include characters from the first film.
And there is potentially useful information about Jurassic World: Dominion in the site for those who want to find it. It is assumed that the details found here are true to the plot of the film. If the characters in the film travel to a specific place in the world, we know which dinosaurs Chris Pratt and company will come up against. We also know exactly how far the dinosaur threat has spread. While there are plenty of dinosaur hotspots around the world, the good news is that most of the world seems to be immune to them. You probably don’t live in a place where dinosaurs could kill you on a daily basis. Most likely.
Jurassic World: Dominion only about a month awayas it hits theaters on June 10.
