It's Reptisaurus!!!

Illustration for article titled Its Reptisaurus!!!

Those of you who have been following the never-ending PR machine for Reptisaurus may already know about this amazing dino scifi flick. Now there is new concept art (above), and a completely awesome trailer (below). Just how awesome? First of all, it's about a giant flying dinosaur-esque monster that preys on humans on a remote island. Second, it was MADE BY SCIENCE, which is my very favorite thing for dinosaurs to be. And third . . .

Well, third is that Reptisaurus is based on an obscure comic book, so it's sure to be a summer blockbuster! Back in the early 1960s, there was a short run of Reptisaurus comic books, which aren't really about very much. Reptisaurus doesn't speak English, so there's a comic book nature special voiceover telling us the true meaning of those images in Repitsaurus' thought bubble. Also, fourth, the movie Reptisaurus, directed by first-timer Chris Ray (yes, he's the son of schlockmeister Fred Olen Ray) . . . will star Gil Gerard!!! Yes, he who was once Buck Rogers in the early 1980s, and just a couple of years ago had stomach-stapling surgery ON TV. So now I'm guessing he's slimmed back down and can wear those tight white pants he worked so well in Buck Rogers. I am so excited about this movie that I am rendered temporarily unable to type. Must . . . watch . . . YouTube . . . trailer. Thanks, Averyguerra!

@jermom: You mean like scifi channel movie MAMMOTH, which combined reanimated dinosaurs, alien implants, and Summer Glau? I don't know if it gets better than that.
