Rapid dinosaur gentrification has turned Jurassic Park into Jurassic World

Demonstrating yet again the growing problem of unchecked dinosaur gentrification, Jurassic Park 4 has been given the rather ominous title of Jurassic World, suggesting these genetically revived, upwardly mobile creatures are intent on expanding beyond their designated islands. In retrospect, the signs have been there since 1997’s The Lost World: Jurassic Park, when immigrating T. Rexes began having a significant impact on the economy of San Diego by stomping on it. And with the Colin Trevorrow-directed sequel arriving June 12, 2015, it sounds like we’ll be seeing communities the world over struggling with the displacement of their non-dinosaur residents as they’re relocated to less desirable neighborhoods, like the inside of dinosaur stomachs and maybe even Queens. Perhaps you should have voiced your concerns at the last city council meeting the second you saw that first “artisanal goat” shop go up, but it’s too late now.
