That’s right. The franchise that just keeps coming back whether it is through sequels or 3D rereleases, Jurassic Park has been something we haven’t been able to get away from since we saw Martin Ferrero get eaten off of a toilet by a TRex. Twenty two years following the release of the original film (and a full quarter century since the original novel’s release), Jurassic Park will be coming back, this time as Jurassic World.
On June 12th, 2015, Jurassic World will kick off the summer blockbusters that follow the release of The Avengers: Age of Ultron. Formerly known only as Jurassic Park IV, Jurassic World’s script is being penned by Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver who wrote 2011’s Rise of the Planet of the Apes while it is directed by Colin Trevorrow who directed Safety Not Guaranteed. Though the writing of the team seems to support what Jurassic World is looking for, Trevorrow has some lofty shoes to fill from Spielberg’s original Jurassic Park even though the two sequels fell on less favorable reviews and adoration.
The story of Jurassic World will revolve around John Hammond’s dream of Jurassic Park coming to fruition with the park being open to the public and receiving millions of visitors a year. And then, things go wrong. Though there could be logical reasons to bring back everyone who survived the previous three releases, no characters or casting has been announced as of yet. Interestingly enough though, it was revealed that there would be some aquatic additions to the park which happened not that long after the iOS Jurassic Park Builder app added aquatic dinos to the game as well.
As much as it might bite me in the end to admit it, I am cautiously optimistic for Jurassic World. The chaos in the park during the first movie and the TRex tearing apart San Diego were some of the most exciting parts of The Lost World: Jurassic Park. Putting a park full of guests at risk of things going wrong gives the “real life” feel of a Godzilla movie to the franchise or at least as real as can be considering at one point dinosaurs did actually exist.
