Universal Plots 'Jurassic Park 4' for 2015 Release + Shooting in 3D
Sad news for fans eagerly awaiting another sequel in the Jurassic Park franchise arrived at the beginning of the summer when Universal Pictures announced: "In coordination with filmmakers, [we've] decided to release Jurassic Park 4 at a later date giving the studio and filmmakers adequate time to bring audiences the best possible version of the fourth installment in Universal's beloved franchise." We were left wondering just when the film might arrive, and now we have a window for release. ComingSoon is attending the 2013 Licensing Expo in Las Vegas where they spotted a big Jurassic Park banner touting "2015" for the release.
Here's a look at the new JP banner on display which ComingSoon snapped a photo of at the Licensing Expo:
That likely means a summer release, which isn't surprising since someone close to production said the film wasn't delayed indefinitely but rater taking a short hiatus while the studio has a "restructuring of the guard." It sounds like some things needed to be reworked so the film wasn't rushed into production just to meet a release date without a care for quality. In addition, a booklet at the expo reveals the film will shoot in 3D - not a big surprise. Colin Trevorrow (of Safety Not Guaranteed) is still directing the film from a script by Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver (of Rise of the Planet of the Apes) with Frank Marshall and Steven Spielberg producing. Hopefully we'll hear more plot details and a specific 2015 release date soon.

Glad they went back to the classic t-rex symbol...instead of that gawd awful spino symbol!

Not a 3D guy but given the option of seeing a T. rex in 3D is tempting.

T-Rex Logo hell yes! Spino is no T-Rex.

What? There was loads of action in JP2... T-Rex in San Diego, Trailer sequence, Raptors in the long grass, the hunters gathering? An the kill count in JP2 was 14+ in JP3 it was literally 3... an kids? Hell no it ruined JP2 and esp JP3... NO Kids. What movie did you watch?

Hmm...why did they change the colors?

2015 could be un-freaking believable as far as box office returns go. Star Wars Episide 7, The Avengers Sequel, a likely Man of Steel sequel, A Pixar film or two, Pirates of the Caribbean 5, Jurassic Park 4, the new Fantastic Four reboot, Ant-Man, the final Hunger Games film, an Assassin's Creed film...who knows what else. Regardless of whether or not they actually deliver in quality...they are pretty obviously 'cash-cow' type films.
