Jurassic Park 4 release date announced!


Exciting news for Jurassic Park fans or just those interested in dinosaurs; Jurassic Park 4 has officially been announced and will be released on June 13, 2014.

Universal Pictures has confirmed the date for the Steven Spielberg-produced movie, while Deadline reports that the film will be shot in a 3D format, though it hasn’t been discussed whether or not this will be a post-conversion effort like that seen in the final Harry Potter film.

The latest instalment in the dinosaur series was first announced by the Oscar-winning director at Comic-Con in 2011. It was later revealed to be hitting cinemas sometime before the end of 2014, though no official announcements regarding a release date had been made.

Discussing Jurassic Park 4 last year, producer and long-time fan of the franchise, Kathleen Kennedy said: “As filmmakers, we often sit there going, ‘Okay. We have to answer the question: Why do another one?’ If you can’t answer that question, you shouldn’t be doing it.

“It’s tough. We’re trying to come up with a story that makes sense and isn’t going to disappoint people and is, hopefully, going to get people excited and reinvigorate the franchise. We’ve got to start with a script and the story.”

The original film, released back in 1993 was based on the late Michael Crichton’s 1990 novel.

The movie earned more than $900 million at the worldwide box office and won Oscars for ‘Best Sound Effects Editing’, ‘Best Sound’ and ‘Best Visual Effects’. It spawned two sequels, The Lost World and Jurassic Park 3 and whilst they were unable to compare to the original, they became two of the highest-grossing films in their release years of 1997 and 2001 respectively.

To wet your appetites for the release of Jurassic Park 4, Universal Pictures announced last year that they will be re-releasing the original in 3D and IMAX 3D on April 5 this year, to mark the films 20th anniversary.

  1. I remember the first one scarying me senseless! Looking forward to see Spielberg make the dinosaurs even better with the improved technology!

    • I never got to see the first film at the cinema so watching it on the small screen was all I had – until it was released again last year. Seeing it up on the cinema screens with the surround sound really made an impact and just cemented it as my favourite film.

      I can’t wait for the fourth one either! Thanks for commenting!
