Today the latest issue of Empire hits stands and included is a brand new article about Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom featuring this new exclusive still from the film.
In the above new still we see the Carnotaurus looking into the Gryosphere where characters Claire Dearing and Franklin Webb, played by newcomer Justice Smith, are taking cover. The Carnotaurus has long been a dinosaur that Jurassic fans have wanted in the Jurassic films, especially after it having a role in Michael Crichton’s The Lost World novel. In the novel, the Carnotaurus has the camouflage abilities of a chameleon and as Twitter user jaros428 mentions in the tweet below, the Fallen Kingdom Carnotaurus appears to have the eyes of a chameleon.

Now this doesn’t mean we will see the Fallen Kingdom Carnotaurus with the ability to camouflage as that trait from the novel was given to Jurassic World’s hybrid, the Indominus Rex. However the chameleon eye appears to be a nice homage to the novel Carnotaurus by the filmmakers.
Of course, the article contains more than just the new still, including some great new quotes from director J.A. Bayona about the direction of the film. Where Jurassic World was lacking an inciting incident akin to those seen in past films, it sounds like Fallen Kingdom will bring it to a new level:
“We are starting with a massive action piece that feels like a James Bond prologue”, teases Bayona. “And in the center there is the biggest set-piece ever done for a Jurassic movie”
The article continues to say that after the ‘big set-piece’, which is clearly the volcanic eruption on Isla Nublar, the story will head back to the mainland for the second half of the film. The second half of the movie will receive Bayona’s horror style will make the film feel more claustrophobic. The article asserts that Bayona’s experience with ghost stories will pay off with a mysterious new dinosaur (Indoraptor?), but he’s mum on details:
“You will see,” the director laughs. “Every movie has its star dinosaur, and this is the one people will remember.”
