Jurassic World: Where Dinosaurs Come To Life – the official augmented reality book of the forthcoming Jurassic World film is published by Carlton Kids on May 26th and The Irish Times has three copies to give away.In the latest TV spot for the upcoming Jurassic World we get a closer look at the brand new breed of genetically modified dinosaur, Indominus Rex, as it hatches from its egg – see it here! The lesson of every film in the Jurassic Park franchise, up to and including this summer’s Jurassic World, is “Don’t mess with dinosaurs.” But clearly, the folks at Universal Orlando Resort still haven’t gotten the message.Universal Studios and Legendary Pictures have just released a new behind-the-scenes look at their upcoming upcoming in the form of a featurette that offers insight from Steven Spielberg himself.

Directed by newcomer Colin Trevorrow, whose debut feature film Safety Not Guaranteed received great reviews both from critics and the mass audience, Jurassic World brings us the world of genetically improved dinosaurs back to life.

When reports of trouble surfaced about “Fantastic Four” a few weeks back, the general online consensus was, “well this is what happens when you give an inexperienced director [Josh Trank] a big tentpole.” And while that remains to be seen (nobody has watched the actual movie yet), what is clear is that Hollywood is investing in young filmmakers for big blockbusters regardless of their “inexperience.” After the low-budget “Monsters”, Gareth Edwards got called up to the big leagues to helm “Godzilla,” and indie directors like Jordan Vogt-Roberts, Justin Kurzel and many more are developing their blockbuster-size projects (we did an entire feature about indie directors who could be the next generation of blockbuster filmmakers and you can read that here).

Though we all know sequels can be tricky in terms of expectations when originals become cult classics, we are thrilled to hear Steven Spielberg, director of the original film and its sequel, The Lost World: Jurassic Park, has been in charge with the film’s story development. According to Trevorrow, a huge part of what sparked his take on the blockbuster franchise was the image of a teenager texting, unimpressed with the T. The screenplay was originally written in a time span of three weeks but Spielberg decided the movie wouldn’t be great enough so he shut off the production prematurely, eventually approving the script in September 2013 as some called it “a development nightmare” (in terms of production quality, we really expect the opposite). Williams was unavailable this time around (working on a small little space movie) and the task of bringing music back to the park fell to the capable baton of Michael Giacchino. While the story seems pretty familiar — dinosaurs run amok in a park meant to amuse and entertain patrons — Universal has wanted to get this franchise back on its hind legs for years now.

The notorious producer and director got privately together on different occasions with writer Mark Protosevich (I am Legend, Thor, Poseidon) without the studio’s knowledge in order to discuss the idea of doing another Jurassic installment and starting developing the story since 2001. Jurassic World, which hits theaters on June 12, 2015, stars Chris Pratt (Guardians of the Galaxy), Bryce Dallas Howard (The Help, Spider-Man 3), Ty Simpkins (Insidious, Iron Man 3), Jake Johnson (Let’s Be Cops, “New Girl”), Nick Robinson (The Kings of Summer), Irrfan Khan (Life of Pi, The Amazing Spider-Man), Vincent D’Onofrio (“Daredevil,” “Law & Order: Criminal Intent”), BD Wong (Jurassic Park, “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit”), Omar Sy (X-Men: Days of Future Past, The Intouchables), Judy Greer (Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, Tomorrowland), Katie McGrath (NBC’s “Dracula,” “Merlin”), Lauren Lapkus (Blended, The To Do List) and Andy Buckley (Bridesmaids, The Other Guys). Meanwhile, Jurassic Park employees (including one “raptor wrangler,” a la Chris Pratt’s character in Jurassic World) mill about reminding guests not to touch or feed the raptors. The second track title hasn’t been revealed and, listening do it, you get the sense it’s probably from a very important scene in the film, so maybe that’s why. Both of these tracks are incredibly high energy, with “As the Jurassic World Turns” even having almost a Disney movie vibe at the beginning, something Giacchino is obviously very familiar with.

Guests are given a once in a lifetime opportunity to come face to face with one of the most fearsome, and lethal predators of the age of dinosaurs, the Velociraptor. Behind the Thrills reports, “The movement is never clunky, or jerky, but very fluid and very lifelike,” and Biz Journals remarks that their reactions feel more “real” than a mechanical raptor’s might. Because of the low attendance rates, the Masrani Corporation – the new owner of Jurassic World – decides to regain the visitors interest by playing God (surprise!), event that rolls terribly putting both the staff and the visitors in danger. Trevorrow claims the gyrosphere was created by Spielberg, as he “wanted to create a way for people to get up close and personal with the animals, to make it a self-driving, free-roaming experience. Last but not least, T-Rex is rumored to be the only dinosaur showed in the previous films to appear in Jurassic World and, as the trailer reveals, a new dinosaur breed comes to life, the “Indominus Rex”, a mix of the terrifying Velociraptor and the Allosaurus.
