JURASSIC WORLD Director Colin Trevorrow Confirms Plot Rumors
While the internet provides movie fans with all sorts of awesome information, it has also created a bit of a problem for film makers, one that grows all the more frustrating as time passes: spoilers. It is very difficult for movie projects to keep things a secret now days and despite their efforts, fans also have a hard time avoiding them these days. The result is that movie goers now go into a theater knowing what to expect, skewing views and expectations. The latest victim of this problem is the anticipated fourth film in the Jurassic Park franchise, being directed by Colin Trevorrow.
A few weeks back, it was revealed that a new dinosaur would be featured in the film, one that was described as the “bad” dino. This new addition would be created by splicing the DNA of a T-Rex, raptor, snake and a cuttlefish. Specific attributes from these four animals would be combined to form the ultimate predator. For all the details and more on the “good” dinosaurs, click HERE. Trevorrow spoke with /Film about these rumors and confirms these plans and goes into more details on what to expect in regards to the status of the dinosaur park.
Jurassic World takes place in a fully functional park on Isla Nublar. It sees more than 20,000 visitors every day. You arrive by ferry from Costa Rica. It has elements of a biological preserve, a safari, a zoo, and a theme park. There is a luxury resort with hotels, restaurants, nightlife and a golf course. And there are dinosaurs. Real ones. You can get closer to them than you ever imagined possible. It’s the realization of John Hammond’s dream, and I think you’ll want to go there.
Trevorrow also confirms that the film will be set 22 years after the events of Jurassic Park. Notice I said the first film, not the third. He goes on to discuss how money is the gasoline that fuels the fire of curiosity and guides us- humans- in a certain direction, whether it is good or bad. This factor plays a big part in the main story of the film. Much like Ian Malcom states in the first film,”scientists were so preoccupied with whether or not they could that they didn’t stop to think if they should.” One particular quote from Trevorrow stands out as rather interesting to me.
What if, despite previous disasters, they built a new biological preserve where you could see dinosaurs walk the earth…and what if people were already kind of over it? We imagined a teenager texting his girlfriend with his back to a T-Rex behind protective glass. For us, that image captured the way much of the audience feels about the movies themselves.
Some rather telling imagery right there. I hope that is something they explore more in the film. Unlike many summer tentpole directors, Trevorrow has really opened up about the concept and his plans for Jurassic World. Usually they keep things under wraps, but this could be an exception because of the initial information leak. The director has some words to say about that as well, so head over to /Film to read what he has to say about spoilers.
Jurassic World stars Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Omar Sy, Vincent D’Onofrio, Jake Johnson, Irrfan Khan, BD Wong, Ty Simpkins and Nick Robinson. Colin Trevorrow is directing, The film is slated for a June 2015 release date.
