Further details regarding Jurassic World, the upcoming fourth edition to the Jurassic Park franchise, have started to emerge now that shooting on the blockbuster has finished.
Director Colin Trevorrow, who oversaw the 2012 independent cult film Safety Not Guaranteed, has now begun work on post-production, which is already regarded as one of the most anticipated movies of 2015.
The film’s plot will revolve around the running of a fully functional dinosaur park. However, when a genetically modified dinosaur escapes the park, he starts to wreak havoc, which threatens millions of people across the globe.
Guardians Of The Galaxy’s Chris Pratt will take the lead role in the blockbuster, which was filmed in a Six Flags Theme Park that was converted so that it looked as if it could enclose dinosaurs. The sudden Hollywood heart-throb confirmed to Total Film that the park plays a huge role in the film, while he has also teased that viewers will be surprised when they see it.
“The park is up and running. John Hammond’s dream has come true and there’s now a park with 20,000 visitors a day, and everything he dreamed of and more is there at that park. And you will see it as an audience member when you see this movie – and then you will see it get torn down.”
Pratt went on to praise Trevorrow’s work on the action film, while he also declared that it will be one of the best movies in the franchise’s history and of 2015 too.
Jurassic World will be set 22-years ahead of the first film, while an entire new cast has taken over the park. Scientists who are now overseeing the destination then look to create a dinosaur by mixing elements of a snake, a cuttlefish and a T-Rex. This, as you can imagine, doesn’t go according to plan, and when it escapes, it starts to wreak havoc worldwide.
Platt also admitted to Slash Film that he understands why fans of the series are concerned about a genetically modified dinosaur, but he has sought quash their fears. “There will be one new dinosaur created by the park’s geneticists,” he explained. “I know the idea of a modified dinosaur put a lot of fans of red alert and I understand it.” Platt confirmed that the modified dinosaur wouldn’t be as mutant as feared.
Jurassic World will hit finally cinemas on June 11, 2015. Are you looking forward to Jurassic World?
