When the Jurassic Park franchise returns to theaters next year with Jurassic World, there might be plenty of dino-on-dino brawls in store for audiences if a new rumor proves true.

Of course, as with any plot details for an upcoming film — whether they’re official or simply rumors — it’s worth putting a SPOILER ALERT out there ahead of anything that’s discussed, so there you go. You’ve been warned, spoiler-averse readers.

Now that we have that out of the way, JoBlo sheds some light on how the upcoming film will move from the awe and wonder of living dinosaurs in an amusement park to lots of running and screaming among its characters. The unofficial plot details the site has posted describe a scenario in which the titular theme park attempts to drum up more business by creating a new species of dinosaur. They do so by splicing together the DNA of several species — specifically, a Tyrannosaurus Rex, a velociraptor, a cuttlefish, and a snake. The resulting super-dino eventually gets loose (of course), and begins terrorizing the inhabitants of the park.

But that’s not all…

The website’s anonymous source also reports that the super-dino will battle some “good” dinosaurs that were trained by Chris Pratt’s character in the film. The dinosaurs on the good-guy side of things include a T-Rex and some raptors, which will likely have a tough time with the super-dino thanks to its ability to blend in with its surroundings (via the cuttlefish DNA) and its raptor-level intelligence (among other attributes). 

The source doesn’t indicate whether there will be multiple genetically enhanced dinosaurs or just the one, but even a single suped-up dino is likely to be trouble for the running-and-screaming crowd.

Naturally, all of this is unofficial and entirely unconfirmed, so it should be treated as speculation until something more official is announced. But hey, it’s fun to ponder the possibilities of tampering with a dinosaur’s genetic code, right?

Jurassic World is scheduled to hit theaters June 12, 2015.

Yes, they’re bad, but the Jurassic World movies are fun too
The cast of Jurassic World: Dominion stares up at an approaching dinosaur.

Jurassic World Dominion remained atop the box office during its second weekend, mainly because Lightyear severely underperformed. Despite Dominion's negative critical reception, it's undeniable that the film is a hit with audiences; it has an A- on CinemaScore and a 78% audience score on Rotten Tomatoes. Sure, those two aren't exactly badges of honor when talking about quality, but they sure as hell are indicators of a film's potential success at the box office and longevity in streaming services.

We look down at most modern blockbusters because they offer us nothing beyond the cheap thrills of their basic premises. And although recent examples -- Dune, The Batman, Top Gun: Maverick -- have proven there is space for depth and nuance in major motion pictures, most modern blockbusters remain firmly set on the repetitive and by-the-numbers approach spearheaded by the superhero genre and championed by the Marvel Cinematic Universe. However, there is something noteworthy -- dare we say, admirable -- in a film that knows what it is, who it's for, and what its ultimate goal is. After all, a blockbuster's purpose is to entertain. More than any other type of film, a blockbuster should keep audiences happy for the required two hours. While it can have a deeper meaning, an extra layer of sentimentality, or a thought-provoking message, at its core, the blockbuster exists to entertain its spectacle-hungry audience.

Sorry Millennials, but Jurassic Park was never a good movie
A child hides from raptors in the kitchen in Jurassic Park.

Jurassic World Dominion opened to big box office this past weekend, along with some of the worst reviews of the six-movie franchise -- a 30% score on Rotten Tomatoes -- which is saying something, given that most of the entries in this series have been panned by critics.

And yet, it's really not all that surprising that the films that sprung from the source have all been of negligible quality, given that the original 1993 Jurassic Park, directed by Steven Spielberg from the bestseller by Michael Crichton, really wasn't very good to begin with. Yes, it earned solid reviews at the time (along with grumblings by Roger Ebert and others), and, yes, it remains treasured by '90s kids. But looking at it without the lens of nostalgia or the excitement over digital dinosaurs that fueled its initial success, I argue that it doesn't hold up well at all.

5 games to play if you liked Jurassic World Dominion
A dinosaur roaring in Jurassic World Evolution 2.

Jurassic World Dominion is out to close the six-movie storyline that began with Steven Spielberg's all-time classic, but there are other ways for fans to satiate their appetite for dinosaur-themed content after leaving the theaters. Given the natural mainstream appeal of these awe-inspiring animals from the prehistoric ages, blockbuster IPs like Jurassic Park naturally paved the way for tie-in media when it comes to video games.

The most recent example would be developer Frontier Developments' Jurassic World Evolution 2 to help coincide with the newly released movie, but there are other dinosaur-themed -- or dinosaur-adjacent -- video games worth checking out outside of the synonymous Hollywood IP. Whether it's park simulators, action RPGs, or survival games, there's something for everyone to indulge their inner dinosaur enthusiast.
