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 TV spot has been released, which includes footage already seen in the trailer but some new content too. And the widescreen ratio has also 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.
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 released in the UK on June 12th 2015, and stars Guardians of the Galaxy‘s Chris Pratt along with Bryce Dallas Howard, Judy Greer, Vincent D’Onofrio and Omar Sy.
