Last night’s announcement that Jurassic Park 4 would be titled Jurassic World just left us hungry for more information about the movie, and today we’ve something really juicy.
Someone has uploaded a pitch trailer for the film, giving us a sense of what it might look like. Keep in mind that this isn’t actually a clip from the movie — in fact, Frank Marshall has confirmed that it isn’t — but it’s an exciting peek at a long-developing project nonetheless. Check it out after the jump.

As Legendary Pictures settles into their new deal with Universal Pictures, CEO Thomas Tull & co. have begun to figure out which projects they can help finance. First up will be Dracula, directed by Gary Shore, starring Luke Evans and Dominic Cooper. That movie is out August 8, 2014. After that, they are interesting in helping with Colin Trevorrow‘s 2015 sequel, Jurassic Park IV. Nothing has been made official but early reports are Legendary is interested in co-financing the film, pending a final look at the script and creative elements. Read More »
We’ve heard a of stories and rumors about Jurassic Park IV, to be directed by Safety Not Guaranteed helmer Colin Trevorrow. But most of them are not likely to be true, and the particular way that some of the accurate stuff will end up in the film remains to be seen. The movie’s production was delayed a few months ago, and it’ll be 2015 before we see the film.
Trevorrow recently took some time to appear on the Jurassic Park Podcast, where he briefly discussed the pleasure of tweaking dino designs and the question of involvement from John Williams. (The answer to that was a non-committal “Do I love John Williams and all of his music? Of course.”) He addressed a few rumors, and you can get that info below. Read More »
The first time you heard Universal Pictures was making Jurassic Park IV, the most common reaction was probably “How could it ever stand up to the original?” While The Lost World and Jurassic Park III each have their fans, neither comes close to recreating the magic and excitement Steven Spielberg captured in 1993. That’s why, when Universal annoucned they were delaying Colin Trevorrow‘s upcoming sequel, it was good news. It meant they didn’t want to rush into making something that wasn’t the best it could be.
In an new interview, Trevorrow echoes those statements while discussing Jurassic Park IV. He doesn’t cop to whether or not it’s a reboot, or those juicy story details, but he does say they’re working hard on making it “something that can stand with the first one.” Read More »

[UPDATE: It's worth pointing out that JoBlo's story refers to Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver as the writers of Jurassic Park 4. In fact, Trevorrow and Derek Connolly were behind the latest script rewrite. The details apparently come from an earlier draft by Jaffa and Silver that predates Trevorrow's involvement. Original story follows.]
When Universal decided to pull Jurassic Park 4 off the 2014 calendar, one of the reports floating around claimed the the delay had to do with the scope of the film. The studio apparently wanted something “epic,” and wasn’t confident that they could pull that off by next summer.
Now a rumored plot synopsis may offer a bit of insight into exactly how big Universal and director Colin Trevorrow were thinking. And depending on how much of it is true, their decision to extend the deadline may make a lot of sense. Get the details after the jump.

Jurassic Park 4 was gearing up to begin filming when the plug was abruptly pulled a few weeks ago. Rumor had it that Steven Spielberg was not happy with the screenplay. Whatever the real story may be, Universal Pictures and producer Frank Marshall decided to put the project on hold while they focused their efforts on development without having the pressure of chasing an announced release date.
ComingSoon spotted a huge banner at Licensing Expo 2013 in Las Vegas today which features the Jurassic Park logo and the year “2015″. The film was originally set for a June 13th, 2014 release date before production was halted, so this isn’t an old date. Again, this could just be hopeful thinking on the part of Universal at this point as nothing has been officially announced.

Colin Trevorrow‘s Jurassic Park 4, originally scheduled for release Summer 2014, is currently locked in a holding pattern. The studio and director agreed taking more time to craft the film was the best way to ensure it will be the sequel we all want. But what does that mean exactly? Quality is obviously the number one priority, but how will a film almost fifteen years in the making take up the mantle left by directors Steven Spielberg and Joe Johnston?
One of the franchise’s stars, Sam Neill, might have a clue. The actor who portrayed Alan Grant in both the first and third installments said in a new interview he doesn’t think he’ll be asked to return because he hears the new film is a “reboot.” Read More »
