Jurassic WorldMovie | 2015

Jurassic World is a 2015 American science fiction action film directed by Colin Trevorrow, who co-wrote the screenplay with Rick Jaffa, Amanda Silver, and Derek Connolly from a story by Jaffa and Silver.[4] It is the first installment in the Jurassic World trilogy and the fourth installment overall in the Jurassic Park film series. The film stars Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Vincent D'Onofrio, Ty Simpkins, Nick Robinson, Omar Sy, BD Wong, and Irrfan Khan. Set 22 years after the events of Jurassic Park (1993), Jurassic World takes place on the same fictional island of Isla Nublar, located off the Pacific coast of Costa Rica. A successful theme park of cloned dinosaurs, dubbed Jurassic World has operated on the island for years, bringing John Hammond's dream to fruition. The park plunges into chaos when a transgenic dinosaur escapes from its enclosure, and goes on a rampage, while a conspiracy orchestrated by the park's staff creates more dangers.

Jurassic WorldMovie | 2015

Universal Pictures intended to begin production of a fourth Jurassic Park film in 2004 for a mid-2005 release but was in development hell while the script underwent several revisions. Following a suggestion from executive producer Steven Spielberg, writers Jaffa and Silver explored the idea of a functional dinosaur park. Once Trevorrow was hired as director in 2013 he followed the same idea while developing a new script with Connolly. Filming lasted from April to August 2014 in Louisiana and Hawaii. The dinosaurs were created by Lucasfilm's Industrial Light & Magic using CGI and by Legacy Effects using life-sized animatronics. Production was completed in May 2015.[5]

Jurassic World was theatrically released in the United States on June 12, 2015, by Universal Pictures. It was praised by critics, with many considering it to be the best Jurassic Park sequel.[6][7][8] It grossed $1.6 billion worldwide, becoming the second-highest-grossing film of 2015 and the highest-grossing in the series. It was the third highest-grossing film of all time at its release and is the highest-grossing film released by Universal.

In January 2013, Universal set a release date of June 13, 2014.[60] Kennedy later left the project in February as she would be busy with the upcoming Star Wars sequel trilogy.[61] A month later, Colin Trevorrow was hired as director,[62] and Patrick Crowley was announced as a producer alongside Marshall.[63] Trevorrow and his writing partner, Derek Connolly, rewrote the earlier draft by Jaffa and Silver, while retaining Spielberg's three story ideas. The film's release was delayed by a year to give the writers time to perfect the script.[64][65][15][66] In September, Universal confirmed the film's title Jurassic World, with a release scheduled for June 12, 2015.[67] The film is set 22 years after the events of Jurassic Park,[68] and is considered a direct sequel to that film; although The Lost World: Jurassic Park and Jurassic Park III remain canon in the series, Jurassic World ignores their events as they occurred on a different island.[19][69][70]

The musical score was composed by Michael Giacchino, who had previously scored the video games Warpath: Jurassic Park and The Lost World: Jurassic Park.[101] John Williams' themes from previous Jurassic Park scores were incorporated by Giacchino, who said: "It was a really targeted approach, as to where to [include Williams's themes] and where would make the most sense and where would we most appreciate it, as fans ourselves".[102] A soundtrack album was released on June 9, 2015, by Back Lot Music.[103]

The theme park website featured a high level of fictional detail, including hotel accommodations, weather reports and wait times for rides.[117] Paleontologist Brian Switek was hired in early 2015 to ensure the accuracy of dinosaur information on the theme park website.[118] Trevorrow wrote fictional customer comments for the site; he said: "It was then that I realized I'd gone too far down the rabbit hole."[15] Closed circuit video shown on the control room monitors was filmed during production and was also added to the theme park website.[119]

Later in April, three new posters for the film were released during a three-day period leading up to the premiere of the final trailer.[131][132] Trevorrow was disappointed with Universal because he felt the trailers showed "far more of this movie than I would have ever wanted". Trevorrow stated that because of the film's cost, the trailers included scenes Universal felt were necessary to ensure its financial success after the studio's disappointment with Jurassic Park III's box-office performance.[133] Universal spent $34.9 million on television advertisements for the film.[134] Companies including Kellogg's, Dairy Queen and Barbasol served as promotional partners for the film,[135] and Lego and Hasbro released toys based on it.[136][137][138][139] Two video games, Lego Jurassic World and Jurassic World: The Game, were released in 2015.[140][141] Tippett Studio worked with Universal and Efexio to create an application titled "Jurassic World Mobile MovieMaker",[142] which adds images of dinosaurs to a background photograph.[143]

The world premiere of Jurassic World was held on May 29, 2015, at the Grand Rex cinema in Paris.[144] The film was theatrically released in 66 territories from June 10 to 12.[145] In North America, advance screenings were held at Majestic 10 Cinemas in Williston, Vermont on the 10th,[146] before opening two days later in 4,273 venues, the largest-ever screen count for Universal.[147][148] The film was released in Japan on August 5, the last market in which it was released.[149]

Jurassic World was released by Universal Pictures Home Entertainment on DVD, Blu-ray, and Blu-ray 3D on October 20, 2015.[154] Upon release, it sold nearly three million Blu-ray and DVD units in its first week, making it the highest-selling home entertainment live-action film, both for Universal and of 2015. Across all digital and physical formats, Jurassic World collected $82.6 million in its first week.[155][156] At the end of 2015, it was named the second-highest-selling video of the year in the UK, selling 1.05 million copies since its release. It was the third-highest-selling DVD and the second-highest-selling Blu-ray in the country.[157] In 2018, Jurassic World was included in the Jurassic Park 25th Anniversary Collection.[158]

Jurassic World grossed $653.4 million in the United States and Canada and $1.018 billion in other countries for a worldwide total of $1.672 billion.[3] It set a box office record during its opening weekend, becoming the first film to collect over $500 million in a single weekend.[145][172][173] The film crossed the $1 billion mark within 14 days, making it the fastest film at the time to reach that milestone, surpassing Furious 7.[174] Deadline Hollywood calculated the film's net profit as $474 million, accounting for production budgets, marketing, talent participations, and other costs; box office grosses and home media revenues placed it third on their list of 2015's "Most Valuable Blockbusters".[175] It is also the second of three films following Furious 7 and Minions to surpass $1 million in 4DX admissions worldwide.[176][177]

The film had the biggest opening day of all time for Universal in Hong Kong; the second-biggest in Australia, France, Indonesia, the Philippines, Russia, and South Korea; and the biggest opening day of all time in Panama. It also scored the biggest opening for Universal in nine countries, including Australia, China, Ecuador, France, Hong Kong, and Malta.[145] In China, it grossed $17.77 million on its opening day (including $1.39 million from midnight runs), which is the tenth-biggest of all time and went on to earn $100.1 million in its opening weekend, which is the third-biggest of all time.[145][205][206][207] It also scored the second-biggest IMAX opening there with $11.8 million.[145] Following China, its largest openings outside of the U.S. and Canada occurred in the UK, Ireland and Malta ($30.1 million),[208] France and the Maghreb region ($14.7 million),[209] Mexico ($14.6 million),[210] South Korea ($14.2 million)[211] and Japan ($13 million).[145][149][212][213] In South Korea, the film was released during the 2015 MERS outbreak as the U.S. film studios are debarred from altering their scheduled dates, resulting the film's attendance to fall from that date and the local films' release dates to be postponed by their distributors.[214] IMAX tickets sales grossed $42.1 million as of June 21, 2015.[202] In total earnings, its largest markets outside the United States and Canada were China ($205.2 million), the United Kingdom ($100.4 million), Japan ($75.2 million), Germany ($49.2 million), Mexico ($44.3 million), and South Korea ($43.9 million).[215]

In December 2015, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences placed Jurassic World on its shortlist of potential nominees for the Academy Award for Best Visual Effects at the 88th Academy Awards[235] but was not nominated for an Academy Award. The film received the following nominations and awards from other organizations:

At the end of March 2015, a Writers Guild of America (WGA) arbitration panel ruled that Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver would receive credit for writing the screenplay with Trevorrow and Connolly, who disagreed with the decision,[256][257] although they decided that under WGA rules they had no grounds to appeal. They accepted the ruling on March 31.[257] On April 2, Universal Pictures originally wanted Trevorrow and Connolly to be credited for the screenplay; they were credited in the film's Super Bowl trailer as the only writers. It was then reported that they appealed the WGA's decision, that they wrote an entirely new screenplay that was not based on Jaffa and Silver's draft, and that they wanted full writing credit for the script.[256] 041b061a72
