Jurassic World takes place 22 years after the events of the original Jurassic Park, where Isla Nublar now features a fully functioning dinosaur theme park, Jurassic World, as originally envisioned by John Hammond.
And now, a second official trailer has been released, which mostly includes new footage, and it also confirms that the widescreen ratio has changed from 1.85:1 to something close to 2.35:1, which would be the first time a Jurassic Park movie has ever been shot in that format, if that’s the case. IMDB is listing a ratio of 2.00:1. I suspect, if that’s the case, then that will be the IMAX ratio, with the otherwise regular cinema ratio being cropped to 2.35:1. I think 1.85:1 would’ve been a better choice for this sort of film, given the rest of the series, and it’s better for showing off the comparative height between humans and dinosaurs.
Note that digital IMAX films can be shot at a ratio opened up to a maximum of 1.90:1. IMAX shot on 70mm film can open up to 1.44:1 (a la Interstellar), and since the film stock is depleting, Laser IMAX is coming, which may also allow that ratio.
Naturally, in this park, things are going to go wrong. However, like with the teaser and trailer, I just don’t find it that enticing. I know I’ll go and see it, but… will it be any good?
Also, while Steven Spielberg will have a hand in the project, he won’t be directing. That honour goes to Colin Trevorrow. Who? He’s not made any films you’d be aware of. Then again, while the first film was great, the second one was also directed by Spielberg but it stank!
Jurassic World is has been brought forward by a day in the UK to June 11th 2015, but a number of other European countries still get it one day earlier than that. The film also stars Guardians of the Galaxy‘s Chris Pratt along with Bryce Dallas Howard, Judy Greer, Vincent D’Onofrio and Omar Sy.
