Supposedly, ‘Jurassic Park 4’ Will Feature a Fully Operational Dino Theme Park (They Spared No Expense!)
We can all agree Jurassic Parks 2 and 3 never recaptured the thrilling adventure of the first, but that doesn’t mean I’m not super excited for Jurassic Park 4! It’s been years since the third flick and considering the recent advancements in special effects there’s an opportunity to do something really spectacular with the dinosaurs. Not so say the dinosaurs of the first Jurassic Park don’t hold up. Re-watch it if you haven’t lately and you’ll be shocked at how damn good everything looks. And that’s saying something for a 20-year-old movie.
The Colin Trevorrow directed Jurassic Park 4 is currently slated to release in 2015 – THE year for movies, apparently – and production is slowly begin to pick up speed. And thanks to guys at JoBlo, and thanks to their trusted and reliable source, we may know some pretty key details of what’s going on in JP4.
Hit the jump for the (potential) spoilery goodness!
Here’s what JoBlo is reporting as a possible storyline and setting for JP4,
JURASSIC PARK 4, set in present day Isla Nublar, is now an actual theme park, as originally intended by John Hammond in the first film. It garners 10 million visitors per year and is completely safe – until it’s not. The park itself is described as very Sea World-esque and includes an area called the Isla Nublar Lagoon. That means underwater dinos for the first time. No indication of what kind, but there’s concept art showing one of the aquatic dinos, as part of a show, jumping out of the lagoon and eating a strung up great white shark like it was a fish for a dolphin at Sea World.
As part of a show, you ask? That’s right, folks, this will feature “tamed” dinos. In fact, our source indicated that the usually menacing Velociraptors (which will finally be muzzled, along with the T-Rex – until they’re not) will actually be used to help fight the threat, which begins in the form of a new dinosaur, not seen in any of the previous films (and not disclosed to us) shows to be much smarter than originally thought and is the main cause of havoc breaking out at the park.
So, to sum it all up, JURASSIC PARK 4 will take place back on Isla Nublar with a fully operational dinosaur theme park (I’m sure no expense was spared) that’s both prosperous and safe, until a new dinosaur figures out a way to wreak havoc, causing the use of the now tamed Velociraptors (and T-Rex? Unclear) as a means to fighting the threat.
I don’t know about you, but I love everything about this! Well, I’ll admit I’m a little concerned about the whole tame Velociraptors and/or T-Rex fighting for the humans or whatever. That could come off a little cheesy. Reminds me too much of when Godzilla starting fighting for us and was hanging out with Jet Jaguar. Then he began talking, and yeah… your dinosaurs or dino-like, radiation-bred kaiju should never talk.
The concept of underwater dinosaurs sounds awesome, and I love the bit of a trainer leading a sea-dino in a leap to eat a Great White Shark. That’s a bit of imagery I want not only in the movies, but in the trailer, because it’ll really sells the whole dinosaur theme park angle.
Does this sound like a direction you want to see JP4 take? Still no word on who the humans will be or whether or not we’ll see any returning faces. Who would you like to see return in JP4?
