Jurassic World has been news for a while now. It will be the fourth installment of the classic Jurassic Park series. The movie is directed by Colin Trevorrow and produced by Frank Marshall and Pat Crowley. The film was in “development hell” for over a decade since the release of Jurassic Park III in 2001. Development hell means the film was in development for a very long time without any progress or production.
“Steven Spielberg returns to executive produce the long-awaited next installment of his groundbreaking Jurassic Park series, Jurassic World. Colin Trevorrow directs the epic action-adventure from a screenplay he wrote with Derek Connolly. Frank Marshall and Pat Crowley join the team as fellow producers.”
Coming from a person who is a pretty big Jurassic Park fan, I am terrified that they will butcher the movie or why are they bothering to make another one? The first movie was amazing enough to end there because it opened people’s eyes to the wonder of dinosaurs and saw them in a completely different light. The effects were also very ahead of its time.
But the upcoming movie is set to star some pretty big names like Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Ty Simkins, Nick Robinson, Irrfan Khan, Vincent D’Onofrio, Jake Johnson, Omar Sy, BD Wong, and Judy Greer.
The plot of the movie is:
“Twenty-two years after the events of Jurassic Park, Isla Nublar now features a fully functioning dinosaur theme park, Jurassic World, as originally envisioned by John Hammond. This new park is owned by the Masrani Corporation. Owen (Chris Pratt), a member of Jurassic World’s on-site staff, conducts behavioral research on the Velociraptors. After many years, Jurassic World’s attendance rates begin to decline and a new attraction, created to re-spark visitor interest, gravely backfires.”
I do not know about everyone else but it just seems like they are trying to make a modern Jurassic Park or try to up one on the original. But the cast seems promising but let’s hope the movie lives up to the hype.
Jurassic World will be released worldwide by Universal Pictures on June 12, 2015.
