The Inertia

What else is the star of a mega-movie franchise to do fresh off the success of his (or her) latest box office hit? Well, for a genetically engineered guy from a tiny Costa Rican island whose been Hollywood’s largest (physically, not figuratively) movie monster since coming onto the scene in 1993, a surf trip to Denmark is about as exotic of a well-deserved vacation as one could think up.

T-Rex headlined the fifth installment of the Jurassic Park franchise in 2018’s Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, raking in 1.295 billion USD from the box office. Sure, he’s just riding a gravy train that may or may not be running on fumes at this point. Critics have criticized him for mailing in subpar performances in subpar follow-ups to the original Jurassic Park, but honestly, you would be laughing all the way to the bank, too. His ancestors have been seen at their worst: wreaking havoc on Isla Sorna, rampaging through the streets of San Diego, and then they went and destroyed a whole other island resort in 2015 after more than a decade off the scene. They’re not pleasant animals, so who could blame this guy for wanting to escape to Cold Hawaii in between productions?
