    And why would you need conceptual pitch footage for a Jurassic Park movie? I'm pretty sure the guys and girls at ILM still know how to do things that look good.

    I'd imagine the "proof of concept" was required because flying dinosaurs figure prominently in the plot (sensible enough considering it's called Jurassic WORLD and they'd escape the island most easily), and frankly most of the other flying dinosaur scenes in the franchise -- especially when they're interacting with people -- looked like shit compared to everything else.

    Cool clip, btw! Huge improvement.

    Am I the only one who actually likes the new title? It sure beats Jurassic Park 4, or Jurassic Park: the Hatching!

    I'm optimistic about this film, but I still don't really know what to make of it. The story with the Spoiler: hybrid dinos could either be pretty cool or pretty silly. I liked Safety Not Guaranteed, but it didn't exactly scream "This director should do a Jurassic Park movie!". I am glad that they're doing another one, though. I still can't believe they screwed up two sequels to this, so hopefully they learned by the third one.

    I thought the hybrid dinos thing was just a rumor. Was that confirmed to actually be part of the story?

    I've never understood why people don't like the 3rd one. I don't even mind the second one but I can at least see why people don't like it. I have always been a huge dinosaur nerd though...

    Ive never thought these movies had much substance so movie 4 means robots or aliens or mutants or talking dinos or gtfo.

    You'll have a hard time finding many summer blockbusters with more substance than the original.

    I actually quite enjoyed the 2nd minus the 3rd act, as I wish they had stuck with Crichton's original ending. What happens at the island, stays at the island.

    Wasn't the 2nd movie completely different from the book? It's been a long time since I've read it

    They have similar premise and beginning but as movie progress it goes way off

    I thought so. I'm sure I'll be going to see this new one on opening weekend.

    Jurrassic Park is one of those old school type blockbusters. The kind that is defined by its actual blockbusting rather than its front end marketing and budget.

    So here is an apples to apples list of blockbusters that I think have more substance:
    The first two Terminator movies.
    The original Star Wars Trilogy
    2001
    The Godfather
    Superman 2
    The Matrix

    Here are some apples oranges comparisons: modern blockbusters
    Nolan Batman Movies
    Rise of the Planet of the Apes
    Harry Potter


    Its a matter of opinion, and its all relative, but Ive just always found Jurassic Park pretty shallow. Its a well made, super fun movie, but its totally empty for the most part.

    They're TOTALLY different. Pretty much the only things carried over between book and film are the presence of a Site B on Isla Sorna, a downbeat Malcolm leading a rescue party, a Tyrannosaurus couple assaulting the trailers after their baby's taken.
    There's no Roland in the book, no InGen hunters (no extant InGen full stop, actually), no Hammond, almost none of the setpieces, no live dinosaurs on the mainland, Sarah Harding is a naturalist rather than a palaeontologist, etc. Different cast of characters, different motivations, different tone, different themes, different story, different dinosaurs.

    I do wonder what kind of film The Lost World would have been if Michael Crichton had co-wrote the script, as he did with Jurassic Park.

    It's the movie that popularised the dinosaur revolution, the paradigm shift in scientific understanding which changed our conception of dinosaurs from lumbering, reptilian evolutionary dead-ends destined for extinction, to warm-blooded, active, social, smart, child-rearing and generally highly sophisticated creatures. It changed our popular conception of evolution, and the history of our planet. The film also inspired vast multitudes of youngsters to pursue careers in science, and consequently our knowledge of palaeontology has leapt forward faster in the intervening 20 years than it had in the previous century.
    It's not an exaggeration to say that Jurassic Park is a landmark in our history.

    And that's just its grander significance. As a film, it also grapples with the ethical concerns of scientific culture, and the unpredictable way that new developments can shape the world, in a very mature and grounded way. It's a smart film; it doesn't talk down to the viewer, and introduces lots of advanced real-world concepts that many of them won't be familiar with. And generally, it's a good story well told.

    I'm pretty sure a lot of the science in the movie is wildly inaccurate, but fair enough.

    Well, remember it's all relative, but I think Terminator is about technology, fatherhood, motherhood.... etc. Terminator 2 features Instances of "character development." Again, it's all relative, but I'm hard pressed to think of any arcs that take place in Jurassic Park other than the guy finally deciding it needs to be shut down. At least Terminator learns to say "Hasta La Vista." Ha, I don't know maybe I'm wrong about that one. But it's definitely waaaay cooler.

    edit: I'm just saying: There's a gap in the market for dinosaur robots. and movie number four is always the most ridiculous. seems like a good place to start.

    edit 2: fucking nevermind Transformers 4 has dinosaur robots. Gap filled. holy shit.

    I haven't seen a transformers since the first one, which was GOD AWFUL, but Dinosaur Robots look so ridiculous I am almost thinking about seeing this new one. and then I get a headache preemptively

    As for T2... I am not usually a DFW guy but I agreed with him on that one -- http://www.scribd.com/doc/14994144/D...llace-F-X-Porn

    JP I think you're being unkind to for the reasons @Vertigo listed above. (And yes I'm aware DFW shit-talks JP in the link I just provided, but I think he's just wrong. JP has meaningful things to say and I think says them well.)

    It's probably wearing the muzzle to stop it expressing embarassment about being bald.

    So far all of the announcements and this poster have told us literally nothing aside from "There's dinosaurs in a park, y'know, like the first one" and I'm still way more excited than I should be.

    Turns out it's not a reboot after all. As in, it takes place in the same universe as previous movies, albeit several years into the future. (per Wikipedia article)
    I can't say I'm entirely cool with them skipping the story of new park development at the same abandoned islands, but I hope they touch it in some flashback or establishing scenes, or even in the same manner as they did in the first movie (that lab tour with video).
