Jurassic World is a 2015 American science fiction film directed by Colin Trevorrow. Two decades after the events in Jurassic Park, a new park of dinosaurs is open on Isla Nublar. However, it is thrown into chaos when the latest attraction - a new hybrid predator named the Indominus rex - breaks loose.

The Park is Open

Owen Grady

  • [discussing the raptors with Claire] See, it's all about control with you! I don't control the raptors, it's a relationship. It's based on mutual respect. That's why you and I never had a second date.
  • You might have made them in a test tube, but they don't know that. They're thinking, "I gotta eat. I gotta hunt. I gotta..." [pumps the air with his fist; awkward pause] You can relate to at least... one of those things, right?
  • [about the Indominus Rex escaping her paddock] Were you not watching? She marked up that wall as a distraction! She wanted us to think she escaped!
  • Just relax. It's just like taking a stroll through the woods. 65 million years ago.
  • [discovering Apatosaurus killed by the Indominus rex, no longer referring to the creature as female] It didn't eat them. It's killing for sport.
  • [after punching Hoskins for planning to use the raptors as an ultimate weapons without his permission] Get the hell out of here, and stay away from my animals.
  • [Claire: So what do we do now?] Probably stick together. For survival.

Claire Dearing

  • Our shareholders have been patient, but let's be honest: no one is impressed by a dinosaur anymore. Twenty years ago, de-extinction was right up there with magic. These days, kids look at a Stegosaurus like an elephant from the city zoo. That doesn't mean asset development is falling behind. Our DNA excavators discover new species every year. But consumers want them bigger, louder - "more teeth". The good news? Our advances in gene splicing have opened up a whole new frontier. We've learned more from genetics in the past decade than a century of digging up bones.
  • Indominus rex: our first genetically modified hybrid.

Simon Masrani

  • The key to a happy life is to accept you are never actually in control.
  • Don't forget why we built this place, Claire. Jurassic World exists to remind us how very small we are. How new. You can't put a price on that.

Vic Hoskins

  • Come on, we're the same. We're dogs of war. We know that the military needs to reduce casualties. Some people think that robots are the future. Look, nature gave us the most effective killing machines 75 million years ago!
  • War is part of nature. Look around, Owen. Every living thing in this jungle...is trying to murder the other. Mother Nature's way of testing her creations. Refining the pecking order. War is a struggle. Struggle breeds greatness. Without that...we end up with places like this, charge seven bucks a soda.
  • You're out of your mind. What are you going to do with all these people? You got 20,000 people here. What are you going to do? They have no place to go. That thing is a killing machine! And it will not stop.
  • Simon Masrani's death was a tragedy. The new mission, should you choose to accept it, is to prevent further loss of life. As always, should you or any of your team members be killed or eaten, InGen will disavow all knowledge of your actions.
  • (pointing to a computer image of the Indominus) Imagine. That one, a fraction of the size - deadly, intelligent, able to hide from the most advanced military technology. A living weapon unlike anything we've ever seen. You see? Millions of years of evolution ...what did we learn? Nature is the gift that just-- (Delta enters the room) Oh, shit!

Dr. Henry Wu

  • Oh, Indominus wasn't bred. She was designed. She will be 50 feet long when fully grown - bigger than the T. rex.
  • You know that I'm not at liberty to reveal the asset's genetic makeup. Modified animals are known to be unpredictable.
  • [hearing that the Indominus Rex has killed people; matter-of-factly] That's unfortunate.


Vivian: Did you close the deal?
Claire: Looks like it. Verizon Wireless presents the Indominous Rex.
Lowery: Ugh, that is so terrible. Why not just go the distance, and just let these corporations name the dinosaurs?

Claire: [noticing the Jurassic Park t-shirt Lowery is wearing] What is that?
Lowery: Oh. I got off of eBay. Cost me $150, but the mint condition one was for $200, so, this was-
Claire: Don't you think that's in poor taste?
Lowery: I know. It was terrible. I mean, I know a lot of people died, but, that first park was just legit, you know? They didn't rely on all these genetic hybrids. They had real dinosaurs.
Claire: Just don't wear it again.
Lowery: Right. Okay, I won't.

Owen: Blue, stand down. Stand down.
[Blue snaps ferociously at him]
Owen: Hey, hey! What did I just say? Delta, I see you. Back up!
[Delta roars ferociously at him]
Owen: OK, good. Good. Charlie, stay right there. Good. Close the gate.
Barry: Are you crazy?
Owen: Just trust me.
Leon: Close the gate!
[Barry closes the gate. Owen rolls under the gate just before it shuts]

Claire: Think it'll scare the kids?
Masrani: The kids? This will give the parents nightmares.
Claire: Is that... good?
Masrani: That's fantastic. Can she see us?
Claire: They say it can sense thermal radiation, like snakes.
Masrani: Say, I thought there were two of them?
Claire: There was a sibling, in case this one didn't survive infancy...
Masrani: Where's the sibling?
Claire: She ate it.

Hoskins: Drones can't search tunnels and caves. And they're hackable. The minute a real war breaks out, all that fancy tech is going to go dark.
Owen: But that tech's not going to eat them if they forget to feed it.

Claire: Corporate felt genetic modification would up the "wow" factor.
Owen: They're dinosaurs. "Wow" enough.
Claire: Not according to our focus groups. The Indominus Rex makes us relevant again.
Owen: [chuckling] The "Indominus Rex"?
Claire: We needed something scary and easy to pronounce. You should hear a 4-year-old try to say "Archaeornithomimus".
Owen: You should hear you try to say it.

Owen: Animals raised in isolation aren't always the most functional.
Claire: Your raptors are born in captivity.
Owen: With siblings. They learn social skills. And I imprint on then when they're born. There's trust. The only positive relationship this animal has is with that crane. At least she knows that means food.
Claire: So she needs a friend. We should schedule playdates? That sort of thing?
Owen: Probably not a good idea.

Masrani: The very existence of this park is predicated on our ability to handle incidents like this. It was an eventuality, okay?
Lowery: You should put that in the brochure. "Eventually, one of these things will eat somebody."

Owen: [after the Indominous rex slaughtered most of the unit that was sent to subdue her with non-lethal weaponry] Evacuate the island.
Claire: We'd never reopen.
Owen: You made a genetic hybrid, raised it in captivity. She is seeing all of this for the first time. She does not even know what she is. She will kill everything that moves.
Masrani: Do you think the animal is contemplating its own existence?
Owen: She is learning where she fits in the food chain and I'm not sure you want her to figure that out. Now, Asset Containment can use live ammunition in an emergency situation. You have an M-134 in your armory. Put it on a chopper and smoke this thing!
Claire: [defensive] We have families here! I'm not gonna turn this place into some kind of a war zone!
Owen: You already have.
Claire: Mr. Grady, if you're not gonna help, there's no reason for you to be in here.
[Owen, fed up with Claire's ridiculousness, knocks Lowery's toy dinosaurs off his desk. As he leaves, he stops to Masrani]
Owen: I would have a word with your people in the lab. That thing out there, that's no dinosaur.
[Owen leaves. Claire looks at security footage on the screen]
Claire: Okay. I'm going to close everything north of the resort. This is a Phase 1, real word. Bring everyone in.
Vivian: This is a Phase 1, real world. I repeat, this is a Phase 1. Bring everyone back in.

Masrani: Who authorized you to do this?
Henry: You did. "Bigger", "Scarier"... "Cooler" I believe is the word that you used in your memo. You cannot have an animal with exaggerated predator features without the corresponding behavioral traits.
Masrani: What you're doing here... what you have done... the board will shut down this park, seize your work, everything you've built. And Hammond won't be there to protect you this time.
Henry: All of this exists because of me. If I don't innovate, somebody else will.
Masrani: You are to cease all activities here immediately.
Henry: You are acting like we are engaged in some kind of mad science. But we are doing what we have done from the beginning. Nothing in Jurassic World is natural. We have always filled gaps in the genome with the DNA of other animals. And, if their genetic code was pure, many of them would look quite different. But you didn't ask for reality, you asked for more teeth.
Masrani: I never asked for a monster!
Henry: "Monster" is a relative term. To a canary, a cat is a monster. We're just used to being the cat.

Zach: You see? I told you. You're welcome. Up close and personal with four... dinosauruses.
Gray: Ankylosaurus. We shouldn't be here. And there's 5 dinosaurs.
Zach: Aren't you supposed to be a genius or something? Look. [pointing at the Ankylosaurus] 1, 2, 3, 4.
Gray: [pointing nervously at the Indominus Rex's reflection on the gyrosphere glass] 5.

Hoskins: The mother hen has finally arrived.
[Owen punches him]
Zach and Gray: Oh!
Owen: Get the hell out of here, and stay away from my animals.
Claire: Hoskins, you wanted this to happen, you son of a bitch !
Hoskins: God! Jesus. How many more people have to die before this mission starts to make sense to you?

Barry: [referring to the raptors and the Indominus] Something's wrong. They're communicating.
Owen: [upon realization] I know why they didn't tell us what it's made of.
Barry: Why?
Owen: That thing's part raptor!



Quotes about Jurassic World

  • The fact that Jurassic Park 4 is supposed to feature naked dinosaurs—contrary to the overwhelming evidence science has to offer—confirms that many paleo fans of my generation and older prefer the comfort of recognizable pseudo-dinos to the more realistic ones paleontologists are reviving.
    • Brian Switek, "What Happened to My Brontosaurus?", Slate (April 16, 2013)
  • I grew up on these movies. So did you, and so did a lot of us. We have a certain love for this stuff that is unique in our generation. And I recognize that. Yet, my biggest fear going into this was it was going to be fan fiction; that it was going to be some kind of carbon copy of this thing that I love. If anybody wants to insult me or make me feel terrible, they'll say ,"It's just a giant rip-off of Jurassic Park."
  • Bryce's character was a challenge, because she's the one who really changes over the course. The two boys, making sure that didn't dip into… the saccharine… was a tough balance. Pratt was pretty awesome from start to finish. This guy's rad. I felt like there was… On a story level it was a challenge for me to make some of the moves we were making. I follow your website and I know how people respond to the idea of a guy who trains raptors. I knew how that was going to shake out and I knew what we were going to do in the story. But I didn't want to reveal any of that. So you kinda have to take some hits. You have to take some bullets for the movie and be like, "Yep, yep. They're just friendly raptors the whole time.
    • Colin Trevorrow [1]
  • Yes, there will be one new dinosaur created by the park’s geneticists. The gaps in her sequence were filled with DNA from other species, much like the genome in the first film was completed with frog DNA. This creation exists to fulfill a corporate mandate—they want something bigger, louder, with more teeth. And that’s what they get. I know the idea of a modified dinosaur put a lot of fans on red alert, and I understand it. But we aren’t doing anything here that Crichton didn’t suggest in his novels. This animal is not a mutant freak. It doesn’t have a snake’s head or octopus tentacles. It’s a dinosaur, created in the same way the others were, but now the genetics have gone to the next level. For me, it’s a natural evolution of the technology introduced in the first film. Maybe it sounds crazy, but most of my favorite movies sound crazy when you describe them in a single sentence. … We’re trying to tell a bold new story that doesn’t rely on a proven formula, because the movies we watch over and over again are the ones that surprised us, that worked when they shouldn’t have. I understand the risks of leaving the safe zone. We’ve all been disappointed by new installments of the stories we love. But with all this talk of filmmakers “ruining our childhood”, we forget that right now is someone else’s childhood. This is their time. And I have to build something that can take them to the same place those earlier films took us. It may not happen in the same way everyone expects it to, but it’s the way I believe it needs to happen.
