Jurassic World, the fourth installment in the Jurassic Park series of films, is scheduled to be released next summer. Colin Trevorrow, the director of the film, has kept his lips sealed about the movie’s plot. Last week, however, a report was released containing some of the film’s specifics. The director changed his approach and confirmed the film’s details in an interview with SlashFilm.
It turns out that some of the spoilers released last week were the details the filmmakers have been keeping a secret from Jurassic Park fans while they are filming.
“That’s the interesting about leaks, sometimes they aren’t misinterpreted or false. They’re real story elements that the filmmakers were hoping to introduce to the audience in a darkened movie theater. But unfortunately, in 2014, you read about it on a computer.”
Trevorrow also said that they were disappointed with the leak, not because they were trying to keep details of Jurassic World from the fans, but because everyone in the cast and crew is working hard to create surprises for fans who have been waiting since Jurassic Park III, which was released 13 years ago.
The director also confirmed that the rumors are true. According to Yahoo, Jurassic World takes place in a dinosaur park located on Isla Nubar, near Costa Rica. The park consists of restaurants, a zoo, and a theme park, and gets around 20,000 visitors daily. “It’s the realization of John Hammond’s dream, and I think you’ll want to go there,” Trevorrow said.
Another Jurassic World detail that was confirmed is that the movie takes place in the present day, 22 years after the events of the original Jurassic Park movie. Trevorrow also revealed the appearance of a new dinosaur, which is the result of work done by geneticists in order to create a “bigger, louder dino, with more teeth.” The director said, “The genetics have gone to the next level.”
Trevorrow said that Jurassic World will indeed be different from the three previous Jurassic Park films. He said that Universal has given them the resources that they need to tell a story, in a way that they want to tell it. “Will this one be different from the other movies? You bet it will. And I’m not going to pass the buck if it doesn’t work. This one’s on me.”
Jurassic World is slated for release in 2015. It stars Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Jake Johnson, Nick Robinson, and Ty Simpkins.
