Today, the NBC’s The Today Show went to the set of Universal’s upcoming blockbuster Jurassic World (corporate synergy!), and spoke with the film’s stars. The movie takes place 22 years after Jurassic Park and is set on a fully functional park on Isla Nublar. As star Chris Pratt explains, the park’s revenues are declining, so they bring in a new attraction, “and it doesn’t go well.” It’s kind of cool that the movie is willing to acknowledge that humanity could come up with a miracle like bringing dinosaurs back from extinction, but eventually we’d all get bored with them.
Hit the jump to check out interview with Pratt, co-stars Bryce Dallas Howard, Nick Robinson, Ty Simpkins, and, director Colin Trevorrow, also to get a brief look at the set. The film also stars Vincent D’Onofrio, Irrfan Khan, Jake Johnson, Omar Sy, and Judy Greer. Jurassic World opens June 12, 2015.
Disney’s ‘Tomorrowland’ held in first place for the three-day weekend with an estimated $32.1 million. ‘Pitch Perfect 2’ came in second with $30.3 million. ‘Mad Max: Fury Road’ was down 47% in third while the ‘Poltergeist’ reboot opened as expected, in fourth place.
