First Trailer Explodes online.
By Sarah Jayne Alexander.
ITS HERE!!! The first teaser trailer for the hugely anticipated fourth instalment of Universal’s Jurassic Park franchise has been set free and we are BEYOND EXCITED for a full length Jurassic World to hit our cinemas next summer. To join in with our excitement, watch the trailer here:
The Jurassic World storyline has been kept under strict lock and key since it was announced that part four was officially in pre-production after a whopping 10+ years of being on the back burner- mostly due to disagreements over how the story should progress, who would star in it and after Michael Critchton passed in 2008, whether it should be re-visited ever again. It wasn’t until 2011 when Joe Johnston was being interviewed that he confirmed Steven Spielberg had been attending meetings about the 4th feature film and stated that “Jurassic Park 4 is being discussed and will be a spin-off of the history of the first trilogy”. Spielberg confirmed this at the 2011 Comic Con by announcing that Jurassic Park 4 would find its way into cinemas “within the next two or three years” but after a script re-write Universal found it to be on a far larger scale than they anticipated and pushed the release back to sometime in 2015. We now know that the release date is officially June 12th 2015. In an interview with Empire, director and co-writer, ColinTrevorrow confirmed that the production had hired Legacy Effects (formerly Stan Winston Studios) to create animatronic dinosaurs as they had in the previous three films. We can also confirm that the meme-famous Dinosaur supervisor from Jurassic Park Mr Phil (you had one job) Tippett is set to return. Hopefully not as a supervisor.
Although the first teaser trailer is only a mere 16 seconds long, we have confirmation that the park is back on Isla Nublar after all these years and is officially open with visitors and new ‘attractions’. The new adventure is actually set 22 years AFTER the horrific events of Jurassic Park I and will see Chris Pratt (Owen) as a Raptor Behavioural Researcher on the island alongside Bryce Dallas Howard who plays Claire, a fellow scientist. After years of trying to get original creator and mastermind John Hammond’s vision up and running (with more than a few fatalities) it seems that new owners ‘Masrani Corporation’ (headed by Irrfan Khan) have managed to ensure the parks safety and have started to allow the public inside to experience all that Jurassic Park has to offer.
Of course, working with dinosaurs is no easy feat and when you try to integrate humans into the mix, things are bound to go awry (as they have done in the past) but with no Dr Grant or Ian Malcom to save the day, can Chris Pratt use his research and skills against the park’s carnivores and save everyone from becoming the soup de jour?
