JURASSIC PARK 4 - Surprising Possible Plot Details!
We recently learned that the Colin Trevorrow directed Jurassic Park 4 is set to be released in 2015. There have been no story details on the film since it was officially announced, but we knew that it was to take place on the same island from the first film and that it would introduce some kind of new terrifying dinosaur that will make us "keep the lights on after [we] see this movie."
Thanks to our friends at JoBlo, we might have some new plot information. There's no confirmation whether the information provided is true or not, but if you don't want to know anything about it, then stop reading now because possible BIG SPOILERS lay ahead.
If the information is true, they have an entirely new take on the franchise, and I love it! There's a lot of potential with this storyline and setting.
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.
The report also also notes that as of right now there are no details revealed on the human characters that will be in the movie (new or old). However, they do say, "but I'm sure they'll play a big part in the grand scheme of things." I can't wait to see what kind of new dinosaur they plan on using.
I'm 100% sold on this concept for a fourth film, but are you? What do you think about the direction they might take the story?
