While Colin Trevorrow, who directed the first Jurassic World, had to jump ship on what was then called Episode IX (and from what I’ve read here and there, I would have liked his Ep IX a lot more than The Last Jedi), he is back to direct the third installment in the trilogy. While that film is still a ways away (is that bad English?), the official Jurassic World Instagram account shared a tease for an upcoming short film directed by Trevorrow titled Battle at Big Rock.
The film will follow a family of fou trying to survive in a National Park that is inhabited by dinosaurs. You can feast thine eyes upon the image down below.

BATTLE AT BIG ROCK is an all-new short film directed by Colin Trevorrow, premiering on FX on Sunday, September 15. The short takes place one year after the events of the last film in Big Rock National Park, where dinosaurs are now living in our world. The story follows a family of four whose encounter with these wild animals becomes a terrifying fight for survival.
I enjoy the Jurassic World films, though a considerable chunk of that enjoyment comes from Chris Pratt. Sure, for most of us, nothing will top the original Jurassic Park. Fellow LRM writer and co-host of Breaking Geek Radio, Nick Doll and I were just talking about the film in our work chatroom. Discussing how many scenes can be considered horror, and how Spielberg put on a masterclass in tension building.
The recent films haven’t lived up to those lofty expectations, but that hasn’t kept them from being profitable endeavors for the studio and all involved. It makes sense why they’d continue milking it for all it’s worth…but do you actually care to see the short? Let us know in the comments down below!
