Though we're still a year away from the release of 'Jurassic Park 4,' director Colin Trevorrow wants us to know that the dinosaurs are coming, and that some will be done with practical effects, as he's just teased a first glimpse at one of the dinos!
From the small town of Pawnee to outer space to 'Jurassic World,' Chris Pratt leads the human cast of 'Jurassic Park 4.' In just a year's time, the next installment of the films made famous by Steven Spielberg will hit theaters, and Universal kicked off the countdown by releasing a new batch of photos from dino country.
Until recently, 'Jurassic Park 4' (officially titled 'Jurassic World') was well clothed in secrecy, but rumors have made the film's director Colin Trevorrow speak up about his 'Jurassic Park' sequel, and so he's just given an interview to clarify those rumors. In doing so, he dropped some tantalizing details about the upcoming sequel.
Picking up the baton from John Williams (and Don Davis), fan favorite Michael Giacchino will score 'Jurassic World.' Best known for his work on Pixar films and J.J. Abrams' movies and shows, he's clearly on his way to becoming the new Williams, so his hiring makes sense.
'Jurassic Park 4' quietly began filming a little over a week ago and the first images from the set have begun to trickle out. Those hoping to catch a glimpse of a T-Rex or a velociraptor will have to wait a little while longer, but there's enough subtle goodness in these three photos to get any fan excited.
'Jurassic Park 4' (now officially titled 'Jurassic World') only just began filming in Hawaii, but life finds a way and Universal is already planning sequels to the upcoming, uh, sequel. (Please read previous sentence in your best Jeff Goldblum voice.) The studio has some pretty big plans for the upcoming film, and those plans involve setting the stage to continue the franchise, if they can.
Way back when, we were thrilled to learn that star of 'Archer' and 'Arrested Development,' and all-around funnygirl Judy Greer would portray an ape in the forthcoming 'Dawn of the Planet of the Apes,' but this might be even better -- the actress has boarded the cast of 'Jurassic Park 4' (officially titled 'Jurassic World').
Although precious few details have been made available to the public, everyone has long assumed that 'Jurassic World' will center on a fully functioning dinosaur theme park where everything goes horribly wrong. Some newly revealed concept art from the film essentially confirms this, showcasing the formerly deadly Isla Nublar as a tourist paradise with a massive visitor center that would make the honchos at Disney World nod with approval.
There has been much talk and speculation over which cast members, if any, would return for 'Jurassic Park 4'. Sam Neill, Jeff Goldblum and Laura Dern have said publicly they haven't been approached about returning for the new film, but it turns out one of the original 'Jurassic Park' cast members will return after all. Who will it be?
When you think of 'Jurassic Park,' you tend to think of the villains being the giant lizards running around trying to eat people. But, in 'Jurassic Park 4' there will be a more menacing human threat and the film's villain will be played by Vincent D'Onofrio.
