Then there's Bryce Dallas Howard turning around in the control room which is similar to when Samuel L. Jackson turned around to his colleagues and said, "Hold on to your butts."

VIDEO: Chris Pratt: From Lovable Goofball to 'Man of the Year'

Starring Dallas Howard, Chris Pratt, Judy Greer and Jake Johnson, the action-packed movie -- directed by Colin Trevorrow -- takes place 22 after the events of Jurassic Park. Isla Nublar now features a fully functioning dinosaur theme park, Jurassic World, as originally envisioned by the late John Hammond.

The first full-length trailer for Jurassic World will be unveiled during NBC's Thanksgiving football on Thursday.
