Its been fourteen years since we’ve seen dinosaurs roaming the big-screen and Jurassic World hopes it can put the bite on movie goers once again when it roars into a theater near you.
Jurassic World will be the fourth installment in the Jurassic Park franchise and will be the second film to take place on Isla Nublar. The previous two films (Lost World and Jurassic Park III) took place on Isla Sorna.
Director Colin Trevorrow decided that Jurassic World would not feature anything of Sam Neill, Laura Dern or Jeff Goldblum’s characters in any way as a creative decision. However, there will be a statue of the character John Hammond, the founder of the InGen genetic company and Jurassic Park, as a way to specifically honor Sir Richard Attenborough who played the role in the first two films. Attenborough passed away though on August 24th, 2014.
According to director Colin Trevorrow, Jurassic World is more a direct sequel to the first film and in some ways ignoring the events of the second and third movies. Trevorrow has also indicated that there have been discussions of possible sequels to follow.
Jurassic World Synopsis:
Twenty-two years after the events of Jurassic Park, Isla Nublar, an island located off Central America’s Pacific Coast near Costa Rica, now features a fully functioning dinosaur theme park, Jurassic World, as originally envisioned by John Hammond.
The new park is owned by the Masrani Global Corporation. Owen Grady (Chris Pratt), a member of the park’s on-site staff, conducts behavioral research on a group of Velociraptors, known as Blue, Charlie, Delta and Echo. At the corporation’s request, the park’s geneticists create a hybrid dinosaur known as Indominus rex (created from the DNA of Giganotosaurus, Rugops, Majungasaurus, and Carnotaurus) to boost visitor attendance.
Claire Dearing (Bryce Dallas Howard) is the park’s operations manager. Her nephews, Zach (Nick Robinson) and Gray (Ty Simpkins), are visiting the island when the hybrid escapes and are subsequently caught up in the creature’s deadly rampage. Now, it is up to Owen and Jurassic World’s security team to contain the hybrid dinosaur before she can cause more damage.
