Joss Whedon Calls Upcoming Jurassic World Film 'Sexist'
The outspoken director Tweeted that the film's latest clip took cues from the "'70s era"
While many are anxiously awaiting the summer release of Jurassic World, not everyone is an unreserved fan of the big-screen sequel – specifically, director Joss Whedon.
Whedon responded to a Tweet from website The Mary Sue touting the clip and joking that they were “fanning” themselves over the hunky star’s leading dialogue.
“… and I’m too busy wishing this clip wasn’t ’70s era sexist. She’s a stiff, he’s a life-force – really? Still?” Whedon Tweeted in response.
In the short trailer, Pratt’s character argues with Bryce Dallas Howard’s over how to treat a genetically enhanced mutant dinosaur. In the tension-filled conversation, Pratt coyly invites the park manager into his bungalow and teases her for a past date gone awry – specifically her spreadsheet planning for the evening. Howard retorts, “Who shows up to a date in board shorts?”
Whedon’s projects often feature powerful female characters, including Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D..
The Universal reboot of the popular ’90s series hits theaters on July 12.
