Dir. Colin Trevorrow
Despite a critically-panned third installment in Jurassic Park 3, the franchise that began with two Steven Spielberg-directed films looks to be headed on the right track. So much of an improvement that Universal Pictures felt confident enough to have plugged Jurassic World right into the middle of summer. After dipping his toes in sci-fi with Safety Not Guaranteed, director Colin Trevorrow takes on studio blockbuster responsibilities with another installment in the modern-day dinosaur-packed franchise. Chris Pratt (Guardians of the Galaxy, “Parks and Recreation”) stars in a film taking place 22 years after the events of Jurassic Park with only one previous, pivotal character (Dr. Henry Wu) returning.
