Jurassic Park’s 14-Year Hiatus is Finally Over – Trailer

jurassic-park-ivFans no longer have to wait for the fourth installment of the Jurassic Park franchise. “Jurassic Park IV”, also referred to as “Jurassic World”, is scheduled to be released in theaters in June 2015, 14 years after that last film was released.

The story for Jurassic Park IV begins 20 years after events of the first movie unfolded. Currently, information about the new movie is limited but according to insiders, events will take place on the same island, which has now been turned into a dinosaur-themed park named Jurassic World. The park’s original creator, John Hammond, had a dream of creating a one-of-a-kind park but that was prior to dinosaurs escaping their enclosures and wreaking havoc.

As the plot goes, there is a dwindling number of tourists coming to the park and to make it more appealing, the owners work on designing a new attraction, one featuring a unique mutant hybrid creature known as Diabolous Rex. A large variant of the Tyrannosaurus Rex nicknamed D-Rex, this new hybrid is dangerous.

Jurassic IV has endured more than 10 years of development, which has reportedly been nothing less than hell. In June 2014, a release date for the film was given but because of a disagreement amongst the writers, production was temporarily halted. Back on schedule thanks to the writing team of Derek Connolly and Trevorrow, the film is expected to premiere on schedule.

Lead actors for Jurassic IV include Chris Pratt (Owen, a member of the park’s onsite staff who conducts behavioral research), Bryce Dallas Howard (Claire), Vincent D’Onofrio (Morton and CFO of the Masrani Corporation, Nick Robinson (Zach), Ty Simpkins (Gray), BD Wong (Dr. Henry Wu), Irrfan Khan (Masrani who owns Jurassic Park), Jake Johnson (Lowery), Lauren Lapkus (Vivian), and Brian Tee (Katashi Hamada).

The film, which will be directed by Colin Trevorrow, also features a number of highly talented supporting actors. Jurassic IV will be shot in 3D according to Universal Studios and rather than produce the 2015 movie Star Wars Episode VII, producer Kathleen Kennedy choice the fourth installment of Jurassic Park instead.

As stated by the producer of the film, people will need to keep the lights on after watching Jurassic IV. The first three movies did quite well in theaters and considering all the work that has gone into this new film to include a frightening hybrid dinosaur, critics feel it will surpass all expectations.
