[Movies] New Viral Marketing Website and Video Appear for Jurassic World Posted by Jeffrey Harris on 03.09.2014
Jurassic Park has been bought out...
A new viral marketing website has started for the upcoming Jurassic World movie. You can check out the website for the Patel Corporation at Patel-Corp.com. For the new film, The Patel Corporation is the company that acquired Jurassic Park from founder John Hammond.
The company is headed up by CEO Rajesh Patel, played by Irrfan Khan. According to the website, the company began in 1973 by his father, the late Dr. Sandeep Patel. The company specializes in "management, construction, security, scientific research and development." The company website also references acquiring International Genetics Incorporated in 2005. This company was referenced in the films as InGen, the bioengineering company that was founded by John Hammond that was behind the tech in Jurassic Park.
The site also has a conference call video, dated September 30, 2009, featuring Ross Frasier, Patel Corp's Chief Legal Attorney. Frasier talks about Patel Corp acquiring Jurassic Park. During the call he states, "With the majority of money flowing our way from your benefactors, we're just going to buy what we like. Your company needs this given your rather reckless history."
Below is an itemized list from the video (courtesy of IGN) that shows how much it cost to buy Jurassic Park:
