By the time Jurassic World opens in theaters one year from today, June 12, 2015, some people might have a hard time remembering Andy Dwyer. Chris Pratt’s adorably dense Parks and Recreation character made him a star, but with Guardians of the Galaxy set to launch on Aug. 1, Pratt is positioned for big-screen stardom. Just check out the first hunky photo of him from Jurassic World, director Colin Trevorrow’s sequel, which picks up the story 22 years after the original blockbuster. Pratt plays a scientist conducting behavioral research on raptors, but said scientist isn’t wearing his white lab-coat when he takes his motorbike out for a spin. Is it me, or does he resemble a young Robert Shaw?
In one of the other two photos (below), which The A.V. Club first posted, Bryce Dallas Howard looks calm and collected as she faces Pratt’s rugged scientist. It’s unclear exactly who Howard is playing, but judging by her hair, dress, and demeanor, I’m guessing her character is cold, calculating, and possibly morally compromised.

In 2014, big-budgeted movie productions live under constant fear of unauthorized leaks: camera-phone set photos that reveal a mysterious new villain, pirated footage, and Wikileaks-level plot descriptions that pop up on the Internet. One preventative strategy is complete radio silence, the kind of omerta that director Christopher Nolan demands on his films, like this fall’s Interstellar. Then there’s Colin Trevorrow, the director of the 2015 Jurassic Park sequel, Jurassic World. His approach to the Internet spoilers that broke last week was to engage with a journalist, lament that unfortunate development, and then confirm and clarify the details. Um, thank you?
