I wouldn't be surprised if they just renamed it so they could do a reboot of the original...

Re: Jurassic Park 4 becomes 'Jurassic World'

Don't they have a script?

A reboot would probably be more successful if they used the name "Jurassic Park." Its the reason the Karate Kid reboot wasn't Kung Fu Kid (although they briefly looked into it). I think the Jurassic World name is because nobody likes sequels with numbers anymore.

Re: Jurassic Park 4 becomes 'Jurassic World'

^ Especially the number four. Trilogies are an esteemed concept, but I can think offhand of several franchises that stopped numbering their titles with their fourth entry: Mission: Impossible, Terminator Salvation, Rambo... not to mention Fast & Furious, the only F&F sequel not to have a number or a secondary title. So... yeah, Jurassic Park 4 was never gonna be the final title.

I wish I could disagree with you, but you have the history of forced movie sequels backing you up.

Aside from that, I am not a fan of movie series that take breaks of a decade or more between installments. Yes, I eagerly awaited the Star Wars prequels, and then Indy Jones 4, but those served to illustrate a sad truth: When you come back to make a new installment after so much time, it just doesn't feel the same. The best sequels come out between one and five years after the previous film (and naturally flow from the story of the previous one rather than trying to copy it).

The last Rocky was ok. Quite often, sequels one after the other start to run out of steam (Rocky 5 is a good example). Sometimes, inspiration can lead to a good new movie. Usually not a great one, but, let's be honest, there's nothing great about either Jurassic Park sequel.

I do hope some effort will be made to capture the magic of the original. Certainly, a good story will help, but part of the appeal of the original was that it wasn't a monster movie, it was a movie with wonderful animals (who also happened to want to kill you, but that's besides the point). I give the second one credit for trying even though the execution was poor. The third one didn't really try and that's somewhat disappointing. I hope the fourth isn't just a monster movie.

Re: Jurassic Park 4 becomes 'Jurassic World'

To be honest I frankly find the first movie to be cheesy as hell now. It still has some really powerful and magical moments, but the overall tone is just a little too cute and sweet and family friendly for my taste.

I know it's been said a million times, but looking back, I really wish Spielberg had stayed closer to the darker tone of the book. I didn't feel that way so much as a kid, but now I definitely do.

Re: Jurassic Park 4 becomes 'Jurassic World'

Well, I don't necessarily disagree with that - certainly any reboot should. However, even the book was able to admire the dinosaurs.

Re: Jurassic Park 4 becomes 'Jurassic World'

Campy parts of the film may be, but if I was confronted with real life dinosaurs that weren't trying to eat me at the time, I suspect I might act the same way.

But I'd love to see a movie where dinosaurs make it to the mainland and the military takes them out.
That will never happen. Remember in one film where the T-Rex is captured, and the movie played it as a tragedy? Or the folks on ATVs with the villain music? I'm a leftie on some things, but it was all too heavy handed to me. Especially during the dinner scene in the first film, where I did not take the side of the heros.

I think this movie will have more of an aquatic focus. I want to see this:
http://www.plesiosaur.com/plesiosaurs/liopleurodon.php

In a real Jurrasic Park were ever made, there would be no problems most likely. I think Goldblum once said on the Tonight Show that he would have no problems bringing back a small one.

It really is the other way around. That would be the worst to get out and become an invasive species. There are no mammalian counterparts to a tyranosaur, and it would never get out of a volcanic island with quarried sides and steep artificial barriers.

But there would be no movie.

The Land that Time Forgot was the last film showing any combat with dinos other than forgettable junk out from time to time. The poor Styracosaurs that faced the U-boat's deck gun--that was nasty.

But that would actually be more merciful than if, say, a T-Rex were loose in New York.
It would eat a passer-by, then cross the road, and some fool would gun his taxi, and pin the ankle of the beast behind the bumper of an armored car just ahead.

The leg would snap from the un-yielding steel, and it would fall to the pavement screaming.

Re: Jurassic Park 4 becomes 'Jurassic World'

What if an egg washed away and managed to land in Costa Rica? Certainly unlikely, but certainly not impossible. What if it turns out that the Tyrannosaur could swim long distances (Elephants can and they've been found on islands where they could only get there by swimming).

I read it before they edited it, but I have a feeling everyone was just trying to save face.

Re: Jurassic Park 4 becomes 'Jurassic World'

The director of Jurassic World reveals some details about the plot. I'm surprised to be saying this, but it sounds pretty cool and even original.
