Update (May 29, 2014): In a new /Film interview, Jurassic World director Colin Trevorrow says that the plot leaked by JoBlo was only half-true.
He reveals the new film will take place on the original island, Isla Nublar. When the film's story starts, it's been 22 years since events of Jurassic Park, and the island is a fully-functional theme park.
"We looked at the past two decades and talked about what we’ve seen," Colin muses. "Two things came to the surface. One was that money has been the gasoline in the engine of our biggest mistakes. If there are billions to be made, no one can resist them, even if they know things could end horribly. The other was that our relationship with technology has become so woven into our daily lives, We’ve become numb to the scientific miracles around us. We take so much for granted."
Expect that hubris to get us humans in big trouble when those "scientific miracles" backfire.
But, no, JoBlo, Chris Pratt's character is not training an army of good dinosaurs. "There’s no such thing as good or bad dinosaurs," the director says. "There are predators and prey. The T-Rex in Jurassic Park took human lives and saved them. No one interpreted her as good or bad."
Colin confirms that there will be new, genetically-spliced species of dinosaur on the island, but they won't be as wacky as the JoBlo report claimed. "[The theme park wants] something bigger, louder, with more teeth. And that’s what they get."
Sounds terrifying. Count us in.
Original story (May 21, 2014): Invisible dinosaurs? Chris Pratt from Parks and Recreation? Monorails?!
Jurassic World is going to be one wacky ride — assuming you believe the "spoilery details" that JoBlo has unearthed about the Jurassic Park sequel.
The site says the action will be based at a working theme park called Jurassic World — a fulfillment of John Hammond's dream for the original Jurassic Park — accessible by high-speed shuttle boat from Florida. Guests enjoy a petting zoo, a hologram info center, and rides that take them close to the star attractions. (Yes, even a monorail.)
But the park goes off the rails when the executives try to boost ticket sales by splicing dinosaur DNA with that of other creatures. For example, JoBlo explains, "the big bad dinosaur has instant camouflage abilities like the cuttlefish, is smart like the velociraptor, uses his jaw like a snake, and can terrorize like the T-Rex."
Luckily, there are "good" dinosaurs trained by Chris Pratt's character, who defend the humans. (We told you it was crazy!)
Don't forget: These details may just be idle gossip, so don't take them for fact.
At the very least, we know Chris Pratt's involvement is confirmed. He stars in the film alongside Bryce Dallas Howard, Jake Johnson, Omar Sy, and Vincent D'Onofrio, among others. Safety Not Guaranteed director Colin Trevorrow is at the helm, working off of a script he co-wrote with Derek Connolly.
The film hits theaters on June 12, 2015. Will you be in line to see it? Or will you skip this one? Sound off below!
