These dinosaurs are going to be BIG. But that's the way they should be. Some excellent news for film purists out there - director Colin Trevorrow has tweeted confirmation the Jurassic World, the upcoming Jurassic Park reboot/sequel in the works for 2015, will be shot on film. Trevorrow was tweeting about the news that cinematographer John Schwartzman (of Pearl Harbor, Seabiscuit, Green Hornet, Amazing Spider-Man, Saving Mr. Banks) would be shooting the project and will be shooting "this April on 35mm and 65mm film." For those unfamiliar, 65mm film is also IMAX-size, meaning they're shooting large format for some scenes.
Here's the original tweet embedded from director Colin Trevorrow, who revealed quite a bit of info here.

Jurassic World, being directed by up-and-coming American filmmaker Colin Trevorrow (of indie hit Safety Not Guaranteed previously), has been delayed/updated/revised many times over the last few years. This current version has actors Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Jake Johnson, Nick Robinson, Irrfan Khan and Ty Simpkins all set to star. Plot details are officially being kept a secret, but early word is that it involves a completely different park on a different island with new dinosaurs. We'll be keeping a close watch on this project as it heads into production this April. Universal currently has Jurassic World set for release starting on June 12th, 2015 next year. It will definitely be hitting IMAX and other large format screens. Excited?
