A new ‘Jurassic World‘ viral site for the company Masrani Global has been launched and with it we’ve gotten a slew of new background details about the film as well as some images that hint at things to come. In the movies, Masrani Global is the company that purchased InGen after John Hammond died in the first film and is responsible for the creation of the ‘Jurassic World’ theme park. While it doesn’t show off any major spoilers or new dinosaurs from the film, it does give us a bit of the history that got us to where we are today.
The actual site that was launched is www.masraniglobal.com. and it tells us about the company and how it came to being the caretakers of the park.
Soon after the acquisition of InGen in 1998, Simon Masrani looked to work at a plan that seemed impossible given the circumstances of the years preceeding – the control and re-invention of a new theme park on Isla Nublar. Experts from the Masrani company were collected together, along with Dr. Henry Wu from the InGen company, to plan for the greatest theme park and attractions ever constructed in humankind’s history.
Simon Masrani used subsidaries Axis Boulder Engineering and Timack Construction to work on the preparation and planning prior to construction on the island. Construction workers were protected from native wildlife by InGen security over the course of the three years from 2002 until completion in 2004. With over $1.2 billion alone spent in concrete and building materials, this project was never underestimated.
The most incredible thing about the project for me was the fact that we were able to construct so far off the mainland, while maintaining all deadlines”, explains Jurassic World Project Manager Mr. Eli Jacobs. “The logistics and the planning were just incredible. Security teams, perimeter fencing, scientists, quarantine zones … it was quite the atmosphere.”
Simon Masrani was taking no chance.
Simon adds, “The sense of security proved vital in the establishment of Jurassic World. The media were having a frenzy at the time, conservation groups around the globe were looking and waiting for any incident to tarnish our reputation to try and take Isla Nublar away from us. We had to set a feeling of safety, for when the time came for opening in 2005, we had to ensure people were willing to come.
And come they did … Jurassic World officially opened in June 2005 to an incredible 98,120 visitors in its first month of operation.
Let’s be honest though if you want to know more about ‘Jurassic World’ you most likely want to see the new shots that show a little from the film so here they are!
