Thoughts On The Jurassic World Giganotosaurus?6 RepliesAdd A Reply
Giganotosaurus is now in the Jurassic series, and its official design is a bit crazier than most of us expected.
Overall I've seen a mixed reaction to the design, with some people hating it for not being fully accurate and others who love it for its more unique design. What are your thoughts on Jurassic World's newest super predator?
I’m worried viewers might mistake it for Indominus Rex
I'm sort of mixed on the design. It's definitely grown on me since it was revealed. The main thing that bugs me are the overexaggerated spines, specifically the ones on it's back making it look like it has a weird fin/hump. Other than that I do like the design. I really love the head and face, it gives it a really vicious and menacing look and the brows have really grown on me. For a Giganotosaurus, it's definitely a weird design, but for a more menacing movie antagonist, it kind of works.
I like to think of it as a fictional sub-species of Giganotosaurus, instead of being Giganotosaurus carolinii. I'm personally calling it Giganotosaurus diabolus, "the Devilish Giant Southern Lizard".
It definitely has some similarities to the Indominus Rex, especially in this shot.
I wonder if that was intentional though, considering that Giganotosaurus DNA was used in creating the Indominus?
It looks a bit more like Acrocanthosaurus than Giga because of the spines for me.
I think Indominuses Base was T. rex, but anything is possible.
I just don’t want people thinking indo is a real dinosaur
Officially, the base genome of the Indominus Rex was Tyrannosaurus, additional DNA that was added was Velociraptor, Giganotosaurus, Carnotaurus, Rugops, Majungasaurus Therizinosaurus, Deinosuchus, Cuttlefish, Tree frog and Pit viper.
As far as people thinking the Indominus is real, the movie makes it clear that she was a hybrid, so if people think that it's a real species that's kind of on them.
The more I look a the design the more I'm starting to like it. From some angle it definitely looks weird, but from other angles (mainly viewing it from the side) it looks pretty good. It's not a perfect design but it's in no way bad.
