There are, as any film geek worth their salt knows by now, several big franchise movies arriving in 2015 – and now that an increasing number of them have wrapped production (or will in the near future), that means we should get to see some actual footage from them, sooner than later. Certain films that had a presence at the 2014 San Diego Comic-Con have already gotten a head-start in that department – like next year’s Mad Max: Fury Road (watch the trailer, if you haven’t already… or watch it again, if you like).

Director Josh Trank finished shooting his Fantastic Four reboot a couple days ago, which the film’s stars announced via a group photo on Twittter; today, Jurassic World director Colin Trevorrow likewise confirmed on Twitter than he’s done with principal photography on his Jurassic Park movie. The film picks up in real-time after the first Jurassic Park installment and revolves around an up and running dino amusement park, as run by humans played by the likes of Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard.

Pratt can currently be seen on the big screen playing the “not 100% a d**k” Peter Quill/Star-Lord in Marvel Studios’ Guardians of the Galaxy. Trevorrow posted a new image of Pratt in Jurassic World to his Twitter account, in coordination with that space adventure film hitting theaters. Said image was accompanied by the caption “See you next summer, Star-Lord,” and you can check out the pic, below. (And if you haven’t seen it already, here’s a video from 2010 where Pratt “predicts” that he will one day star in Jurassic Park 4.)

Then, earlier today, Trevorrow posted the following image announcing the end of production on Jurassic World, with the simple caption “Wrap.”

It shall be a while still until we get to see footage of fully-rended CGI dinosaurs in Trevorrow’s new film, though at least some of the dinos are being brought to life via a combination of practical and digital effects – something the director has teased in the past, with a photo depicting the shadowy outline of a non-CGI dino from the Jurassic World production.

Such recent movies as Pacific Rim and Godzilla have raised the bar for giant monster effects, but Trevorrow’s flick could stand apart from them by instead offering smaller, yet equally convincing scaly beasts (if not more convincing). Jurassic World was shot by Oscar-nominated cinematographer John Schwartzman (see the image above), whose blockbuster credits include early Michael Bay offerings (The Rock, Armageddon) as well as more recent titles like The Amazing Spider-Man and this fall’s Dracula Untold. That is to say, Jurassic World looks to be in pretty good hands, as far as its visual template is concerned.

Meanwhile, such 2015 tentpoles as Terminator (2015) should also wrap up their own productions relatively soon (costar Dayo Okeniyi finished shooting his scenes recently). It’s safe to assume a teaser for that sci-fi blockbuster will be released before the year is done, along with other previews for hotly-anticipated 2015 titles (like the Crimson Peak teaser that premiered at Comic-Con) – a list that for sure includes Jurassic World.

Jurassic World was directed by Colin Trevorrow and co-written by Trevorrow and Derek Connolly (Safety Not Guaranteed), drawing from an earlier script draft by Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver (Rise of the Planet of the Apes).

The film opens in 2D and 3D theaters around the U.S. on June 12th, 2015.

  1. Mr. Dna: DINERSARZS!!!

    • Looks more like a six foot turkey

      • what were you expecting?

        I don’t know… big iguanas?

  2. I am looking forward to this! I like all the JP films, even the ones that the haters criticize. Who gives a darn about plot holes when there are FREAKING DINOSAURS causing HAVOC!!!

    • Exactly how I feel man…or girl…

      • Clever girl…

    • Nobody who criticizes JP3 is a “hater”, lol.

  3. I love that we’re seeing lovable goof Chris Pratt becoming a great action star. I ABSOLUTELY LOVED Guardians, so much so that I’d say it’s my favorite Marvel movie to date. Pratt was great as PJ Quill fighting intergalactic bad guys, now let’s see how he handles himself with dinosaurs. xD

  4. The Representative will have emerged come before this point next year:

    There won’t be a Jurassic World.

    • Huh? who?

      • Satans minion needs a grammar lesson.
        Also! just to be pedantic, the movie has wrapped so your statement is both grammatically and factually incorrect.

        • Book yourself in for that grammar lesson also since it would be written as ‘Satan’s minion’ and not ‘Satans minion’.

        • If you really want to be pedantic you should get your facts straight. The only thing that has wrapped on Jurassic World is the (principal) photography. The film is far from being complete at this point. Now begins the lengthy post production: editing, color timing, sound mixing, ADR, visual effects work, music composition… all of which will take many months and thus much longer than actually filming the movie.

          Oh, and before you are going to attack my grammar, keep in my mind that English isn’t my native tongue. It’s my second language that I only started learning when I was 10 years old. 😉

          • wow!
            you actually started learning English earlier than most Americans!

    • Spared no expense

  5. I can’t believe that logo is the official one, it looks so lazy.

    Replace “Park” with “World”, and make the red background blue because there’s aquatic dinos this time. Genius.

    At least put a new dino in the logo like JP3 did; since I doubt the t-rex will be the “star” this time around.

    • It’s called “brand recognition”.

      • I doubt anyone wouldn’t recognize its Jurassic Park, since the entire logo setup is iconic in and of itself. Plus how many other well-known movie franchises out there have “Jurassic” in their titles?

  6. I am looking so forward to this! And to EggU; I like the logo, it stays true to the original.

      • That does look pretty cool :)

  7. Just looking at that pic of the mystery dinosaur, i think i know what it is. For anyone who watched the BBC’s Walking with dinosaurs back in the day, it looks like an Ornithocheirus, the long mouth gives it away to me. Which would be an excellent addition to JP4 i think. Not a well-known dinosaur to many. Would also like them to include some Liopleurodons. JP series never had a water based dinosaur, think about all of the ocean it could be swimming in off of Isla Nublar, because they are huge! T-rex goes over to the water to get a drink, snap, there goes your head.

  8. It is obviously a skeleton, that doesn’t mean it is a dinosaur in the movie.
