'Jurassic Park 4' Now Titled 'Jurassic World' and is Set to Stomp in Summer 2015Damon Houx |
'Jurassic Park 4' was initially set for what seemed like an unrealistic 2014 launch, as the film had a release date before it had a director. But now the Colin Trevorrow-helmed sequel has a new title and release date. 'Jurassic World' has just been scheduled for June 12, 2015.
Right now that looks like a pretty good launching point. By then 'The Avengers: Age of Ultron' will be a month and a half old, while June 19 offers the Pixar film 'Inside Out' and the 'Assassin's Creed' movie, and then on June 26 comes 'Terminator 5.' As the 'Batman Vs. Superman' movie isn't due out until July 17, they've got some breathing room, and as crazy as summer 2015 has looked, if 'Star Wars: Episode 7' doesn't come out until Christmas (as has been the rumors), there's way more breathing room in the summer weeks.
We don't know very much about 'Jurassic World,' other than that Trevorrow will be directing it based on a script by Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver (who also wrote 'Rise of the Planet of the Apes'), but with a title like that it sounds like the mayhem won't be contained to just one island, and it may have more city-based destruction than 'The Lost World.' Sounds cool.
