The found-footage prequel to Jurassic World continues with the above viral video posted to the Masrani Global website. In addition to providing us with more stock pre-plot material of the movie’s dinosaur park setting, this one introduces us to one of the main characters of the sequel: Vic Hoskins (Vincent D’Onofrio), the head of Masrani’s security initiative for InGen.
As we learn from the site and the video, InGen Security is a multi-national peacekeeping force that also deals in drones and surveillance. It’s basically a military organization that is responsible for handling international conflicts as well as the safety of the millions of guests at Jurassic World every year.
His Asset Containment Unit is heavily armed, which is something I figure would make visitors worried, so they’re probably not just hanging around the publicly accessible grounds. Their job sounds separate from the safety side of the force anyway, working instead to protect and guard the animal “assets” and other value held by the corporation in the park. I bet weighing that value over the value of guests’ lives winds up being a conflict in the movie, too.
On the site, there are additional quotes from Hoskins and other characters who may not be in the movie. Some of the copy references incidents in past installments of the franchise:
“Poachers have been known to risk their own lives working in the service of ruthless collectors (Jurassic Park). It has also been reported that some individuals have been responsible for mishandling captured specimens, with disturbing hospitalization cases on the Costa Rican mainland (The Lost World: Jurassic Park),” and “A seasoned security contractor, Vic Hoskins was involved in overseeing the infamous flying reptile ‘cleanup’ operation over Canada in 2001” (Jurassic Park III).
At the end of the page is mention of something we don’t know about: the IBRIS Project, which Hoskins has been overseeing for the past three years. Could that be the project for the creation of new dinosaurs? Maybe we won’t find out until the movie opens this June.
