Yes, you read the above headline correctly. Found footage + Dinosaurs = THE DINOSAUR PROJECT. Ryan Rotten of STYD hit the nail on the head by saying this looks like a found footage version of Jurassic Park 3. Depending on your opinion of JP3, this could be either what you’ve been eagerly anticipating since the sub-genre’s inception or a major step back in filmmaking 65 million years in the making. Check out the trailer for yourself below!
Synopsis: “And the world thought that dinosaurs were extinct? Brace yourself for a chilling ride through the depths of the Congo jungle as a film crew discovers (to their peril) that the 65-million-year-old species is more than alive! The most exciting dinosaur action movie since Jurassic Park! African fishermen find an orange backpack floating gently on the water. They are astonished to discover a waterproof container inside, full of videotapes. Flash back to London and the announcement by crypto-zoologist Jonathan Marchant of his expedition to find Mokele Mbembe, a legendary dinosaur rumored to inhabit the Congo River. As Jonathan’s team boards a chopper to take them into the jungle, they are accompanied by their mysterious and beautiful local guide, Amara; a TV documentary crew equipped with state-of-the-art camera technology; and a stowaway looking for adventure: Jonathan’s rebellious but multi-talented teenage son, Luke. After an attack by flying reptiles, the helicopter crashes near a deserted village, and all the team’s links to the outside world go down. They are on their own. Or are they?”
