Jurassic World

The new Jurassic Park film is set to be released on June 15, 2015. To be honest, I am pretty excited! I'm a huge fan of these films and really hope that this new movie will be no exception! The third film is probably my least favorite to be honest, and it took away the sense of terror and suspense.

As of yet, there will be only one returning member from the original trilogy: B.D. Wong as Dr. Henry Wu. If you remember seeing him from the first film, he was the one responsible for cloning the dinosaurs. Jurassic World takes place 22 years after the events of the first film and will focus on a new park on Isla Nublar featuring dinosaurs.

Re: Jurassic World

Yeah the new story seems insanely silly. After the first three movies I don't see anyone building a new park, that's just silly to me. And now the world is bored with dinosaurs so scientists are now creating new dinosaur species. Just seems silly.

I was kind of hoping for a Planet of the Apes type of feeling to Jurassic World. The dinosaurs have made it off the islands and are taking back the world.

Yeah, it is a disappointment "world" is not literal (or is it?), but I am watching either way.

I would be happy if some Time Traveller got trapped in the Dinosaurian Age, here on Earth and they just made a movie about his survival. That would be COOL!!!

Jurassic Park 3 was supposed to be about Sam Neil's character living on one of the islands, like dinosaur cast away. Instead Sam Neil thought that didn't fit his character so they threw that out right before filming and made what we got.

Re: Jurassic World

I think the premise makes perfect sense, it's dinosaurs!, not a single corporation with enough dough to build it would leave such an opportunity to print money alone.
People get killed in zoos every year still almost every city has one. Nature cannot be controlled, neither can greed. And breeding more exciting things makes sense as a comment on our society's constant need to outshine the things we saw five minutes ago... Reminds me of the social commentary of the first film. I'm in.

I think it's a play on words with Disneyworld, given the new Isla Nublar's amusement park-like atmosphere, but will possibly take on the larger meaning toward the end of the film if the dinosaurs escape the island en masse, which I think will probably happen.

But yeah, I'm looking forward to it. Even at its worst in JP3, it was still friggin' dinosaurs.

That's my thinking! I'll watch anything with decent dinosaurs in it.

Where in the militaries of the world blow their asses to hell.

Seriously Planet of the Apes only worked becuase of an apocalypse that collapsed human civilization and the apes were smart enough to take advantage of it.

Re: Jurassic World

Just looked up the writing and directing credits on this. The director is nobody who's done anything particularly interesting, but two of the writers did the new Apes movies, which is promising.

Really the writing and directing credits correlate much more with whether a movie is worth seeing than what franchise it happens to be based on.

Here's a link to one of the animatronic Raptor props:

http://www.jurassicworld.org/?id=169

Seems to be similar to the other ones, except this time with a green color. Just to recount, The originals in JP sort of had a brownish/grey tint, TLWs had the tiger colors and stripes (possibly a nod to their colors in the original novels), and TLW featured the feather-crested Raptors with one white Raptor (The 'alpha' or something like that).
