Trevorrow's 'Jurassic World' To Be Shot on Film, Partially with 65MM

February 6, 2014

Jurassic World

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?

Best Trex was Jurrasic Park 1 buddy and thats a hollywood FACT, stil today ILM refers to how great it looks, thats because it was a mixture of animatronic and top tier CG .. King Kong looked good, but can't hold a candle to a film that came out 10+ years before it. you must have bad vision and drink alcohol when you watch movies, cuz' ya' eyes are blind'

First , i think you trying to say right or wrong doesn't based on our tastes , right? and second dude , you think JW >> King Kong but that's my wish. didn't i mention It?

For one, you english is jarbled so it's hard to understand your point, but yes opinion and fact are 2 different things, however it's a fact that the movie industry refers to that being a breakthrough in animation and also still looks better than most films today, eventually when a huge number of views are perceived as correct since these are top animators and film makers it becomes and inside fact, or industry fact, it's a term, look it up

he did a great job with safety not guaranteed, one of my favorite movie of the last few years but this is a very big job! If he keeps story great it will be awesome...

One of my favorite series since a child ... dinosaurs will never get old as antagonist..if that's what they could be called...

Jurassic Park is my favorite film of all time. I have faith that this will be a worthy follow up. Also, shooting on 65mm is never a bad thing. I'm always up for it. I'd love to get a huge blockbuster shot entirely on 65mm. I wonder if JJ Abrams is reading this.

Now we just need confirmation of animatronics and less CGI.

I wouldn't believe them even if they announced it.

I'll just say this. A movie being your favourite isn't a measure of its quality. I've seen great films, but my favourite it Tron Legacy because of how it appeals to me personally. I know there are a million better movies, but it's my favourite.

Jurassic Park is in my top 3 films. All the one's you mentioned are for a more "artsy" crowd. I like movies that reflect my interests and that don't have to be real because I see entertainment as a step out of normal life. I mean if you like dino's that is the best filmed movie and the first land before time is probably the best animated one.

It is enjoyable to see such an enlightened character as yourself leaving out the fact that there is no way taste can be agreed by discussion, adding insult to injury you also bring elitism into your own choice of favorite films... which are such classics its like picking the sun in a flashlight brightness contest. 🙂 I guess ignorance is bliss. I thank no GOD for the fact that there are so many original scripts out there for people to choose from and enjoy be it George Romero classics or Hitchtcock... White background with red font comedies, or stop motion lego movies made by 9 year olds on youtube. Everyone can enjoy what they like.. and yeah you are right, they shouldnt even HAVE to hear your rant 🙂 And you compliment yourself thinking you even brought a hook to this fishing contest? 🙂 wow.

And there it is.. the master suppression technique as I suspected. 🙂 I said nothing about my taste in movies, nor did I defend the movie in this discussion. I defended peoples rights to have their own taste, and get entertained by it. You simply assume what my taste is and what I am mesmerized by, so the word was not ignorance, but unaware i guess? 😉 Talking to Guiseppe Tornatore himself couldn`t possibly give you "better taste" than anyone else. As of your reply to my statement about agreement in an discussion about taste you leave out the the word "taste" when you enlighten me about agreements in discussion. Of course you can agree in an discussion, but you can`t say that someones taste is bad or good.. that simply implies that your taste is superior.. Which is not intelligence, its elitism.. or makes you a simple bully at best. I attacked nothing about you or your intelligence , but I may have criticized your downwards attitude against other peoples taste..altough I see your pride may have got hit in the crossfire. 🙂 Of course you are having fun, we all are 🙂 Ill give you yet another metaphor: You take on this issue is like saying "In my opinion Beatles was`nt popular" People get alot of stuff out of different movies.. and thats a good thing.. Like someone watching the fountain sees a sad fancy fantasy movie, others find a deeper philosophical meaning behind the story.. or Lost Highway, which is so open to debate an analysis from so many angles.

Once again I defended junk, and now I am insecure 🙂 This is good stuff 🙂 So you actually feel attacked by me? Then I most excuse my horrible manners. 🙂 You left that mentality long ago, so your basically an ex smoker... the worst kind of smoke haters 😀 hehe. . I admire your use of Master supression techniques, and To who I am, which is not important in this discussion, you can say I have been where you are, and gone further, I left the narrow tunnel. 🙂 I love arrogant trolls like you more than anything, and I`m so proud of you having fun with me, owning me.. 🙂 lolz

Every trick in the book! 😀 You rule! and by the way.. Citizen Kane is about enjoying the small things in life.. its THAT simple.. and I just Citizen Kaned you for all to see.
