All those things you heard about Jurassic World are unfortunately true, and the film’s director, Colin Trevorrow, isn’t happy about it.
Up until last week, the details of Jurassic World, the fourth installment of Steven Spielberg‘s Jurassic Park, franchise were kept tightly under wraps. “When I was a kid, you got to discover everything at once, it washed over you and blew your mind,” Treverrow said in his latest interview. But those filmmaker hopes and dreams went to shit when an insider leaked plot details and plenty of spoilers to JoBlo.com. The public’s reaction was so strong, particularly to rumors of a new, genetically-modified dinosaur, that it forced him to confirm which tidbits were true…which turned out to be all of them.

“That’s the thing about leaks, sometimes they aren’t misinterpreted or false,” he said. “They’re real story elements that the filmmakers were hoping to introduce to the audience in a darkened movie theater. But unfortunately, in 2014, you read about it on a computer.” That also means that if the story elements suck, people find out way in advance before they shell out $14 to see your movie. So the leak is just bad news all around for Jurassic World, which still has another year before it hits theaters.

The movie is set 22 years after the original Jurassic Park, in a massive theme park with luxury resorts and safaris and nightlife – think Disneyworld but with dinosaurs – on an island off of Costa Rica. Many of the 20,000 daily visitors are jaded teenagers who are no longer impressed by technological advances like resurrecting dinosaurs to live in a theme park. No one seems to have a problem with those elements. It’s the genetically modified dinosaur with feathers causing the uproar with Jurassic Park fans and dinosaur geeks. They just can’t believe this fictional movie about humans and dinosaurs coexisting would deviate from scientific fact and create a feathered dinosaur. To be fair, it does sound a little far-fetched. But so does everything about Jurassic Park ever, so why stop now?
