Jurassic World picks up nearly 25 years after the events of the first film. Isla Nubla has worked out its ‘kinks’ and is a fully operational as a tourist destination. The park is now owned by the Patel Corporation. In response to declining tickets sales, the Patel Corporation introduces a new attraction to revitalize interest in the park. As should be expected, the new attraction doesn’t work as planned and the park’s human visitors become snacks.
The newest entry in the Jurassic Park series is currently filming. It is being directed by Colin Trevorrow. Jurassic World is only Trevorrow’s second feature film directorial effort and his first with any real budget to speak of. Trevorrow is co-writing the script along with Derek Connolly. The pair previously worked together on the low-budget film Safety not Guaranteed.
Jurassic World features an ensemble cast that includes Chris Pratt (Jennifer’s Body) as Owen and Bryce Dallas Howard (Terminator Salvation) as Beth.
The film was originally set for a June 13, 2014 release but due to differences between the creative team and the studio, production was halted, causing Jurassic World to be pushed back to its current scheduled release date of June 12, 2015
