When it rains movie news, it pours. Universal announced last evening that Jurassic Park 4 would be titled Jurassic World and today here’s something really juicy – a pitch trailer for the film.
Well, this isn’t actually a clip from the movie that will hit theaters on June 12th, 2015.
Director Colin Trevorrow posted a cryptic comment on Twitter:
Alright, Phil. We're going to give you one last chance. Keep your eyes peeled and remember, they can open doors. #JurassicWorld

The ‘Phil’ is the dinosaur supervisor Phil Tippett who worked on Jurassic Park and is now working on Jurassic World. It does give us a look at some awesome air-dino action, but we don’t know exactly what came of the pitch.
Producer Frank Marshall confirmed that the scene featured is ‘not part of the movie.’
Sloppy play, but you’ll get the gist.
According to the person who posted it:
All I can say is this video was shown as part of Iain McCaig’s presentation at the recent Star Wars convention in Germany (he’s the fantastic concept artist and designer of Darth Maul). I can only presume it was part of a pitch for reigniting the JP movie franchise, if anyone can confirm please let me know. It was apparently shown to Kathleen Kennedy and Steven Spielberg. Mr McCaig actually said ‘it certainly got Steven interested in dinosaurs again…’ I just think is so cool.
UPDATE: Sadly, this isn’t a ‘pitch trailer’ for the movie, just footage from a cancelled video game that shared the same name. Here’s what Lucasfilm’s Pablo Hidalgo confirms via Twitter.
@ChrisLikesDinos yes and no. It was footage for a videogame project that never came to be, which happened to share a name.
