Jurassic World Roars In For 2015
Jurassic Park IV gets a title and release date

Though we all worried when the fourth Jurassic Park film struck a delay and Universal announced it wouldn’t make its planned 2014 release, everyone began to breathe easier when a banner announced a 2015 date. Now we know the exact release date – June 12, 2015, in the US at least – and what it will be called. Welcome, then, to Jurassic World.

What that title means is anyone’s guess right now – at least outside of the core filmmaking group of director Colin Trevorrow, co-writer Derek Connolly, producer Frank Marshall and Jurassic Park warden/executive producer Steven Spielberg – but it points to a wider scope this time around. Does that title mean that the dinosaurs get loose on a wide scale? Will we see pterodactyls in the skies over Europe? On the other hand, maybe it just means that this time the park is bigger, in the same way that Disney World is bigger than Disneyland.

Trevorrow and Connolly have been working on the script, which has seen work from Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes’ Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver, but they needed more time to develop it before shooting can begin.

There’s no exact date for the start of shooting yet, but everyone involved is working full tilt now, especially since they have to have this behemoth ready for 2015 in 3D... Start your guesses now as to exactly what Jurassic World will involve!

Which dinosaurs would you like to see this time?
Icthyosaurus, for some underwater set pieces!
Stegosaurus, because I like armoured plating and tiny heads.
Barney, because he's friendly.
Dinobots! Spielberg is in charge of both franchises, after all...

I was going to say that I wondered if this fourth film would acknowledge the fact that in recent years it has been established that most bipedal carnivorous dinosaurs (including the T. Rex) were covered in feathers, but I just realised, it doesn't need to. Dr Alan Grant has repeatedly stated in previous films (particularly the third) that the Jurassic Park beasts are not actual dinosaurs but genetic constructs, which I admit is a rather neat way to cover for disconnects with new scientific disco More

A completed park has such potential for proper havoc. I hope it doesn't just end up as Jaws 3 with dinosaurs though. It has to be based on the safari elements. A prehistoric apocalypse sounds like crap. More
