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.
