JURASSIC PARK IV Eyed for 2015 Release; Will Be Shot in 3D [Updated]

     June 18, 2013


Though Jurassic Park IV was initially targeted for a very rushed release in 2014, Universal wisely decided not to rush production and recently announced that the production had been postponed in order to give director Colin Trevorrow enough time to adequately prep the shoot.  The franchise entry is a massive undertaking regardless, but it also marks Safety Not Guaranteed director Trevorrow’s first studio film and early word is that his rewrite of the script involves some pretty impressive (and time consuming) set pieces that need careful attention.

Following the postponement news, most assumed that we would likely see Jurassic Park IV hit theaters in 2015 instead.  A new banner for the film at the 2013 Licensing Expo suggests that the film will indeed hit theaters sometime in 2015, and we have also learned that the pic will be shot in 3D.  Hit the jump for more. [Update: Variety has confirmed that Jurassic Park IV will indeed be released in 2015, adding that Steven Spielberg is currently in town working with producers and Trevorrow on the JP4 script before he jumps into pre-production on American Sniper.]

The folks over at ComingSoon have provided the below snapshot of the Jurassic Park IV banner that boasts a 2015 release date, and the report adds that the Licensing Expo book claims the film will be shot in 3D.  If the 2015 date holds, we will potentially be seeing The Avengers 2, Pirates of the Caribbean 5, Ant-Man, The Fantastic Four, Finding Dory, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2, and now Jurassic Park IV all in the same year.  Get your popcorn ready.
