‘Jurassic World’ Images: Meet the New Human Players

The long-awaited fourth Jurassic Park movie, Jurassic World, opens in theaters exactly a year from today (at the time of writing this). To mark the occasion, the first official production stills for the film – as opposed to the official set images released not too long ago – have been unveiled.

Unfortunately, since it’s so far ahead of the movie’s arrival date and the effects necessary to bring the film’s prehistoric creatures to life are far from complete, the photos do not include any dinosaurs – either familiar or new, such as the confirmed never-before-seen dino that’s been genetically engineered by the Jurassic Park scientists in the film. No worries, though – there’re going to be plenty of dinos on display in the actual movie, going off details that’ve been unveiled thus far (either through legit sources of information or via leaks online).

In the meantime until said dinosaurs are let loose (literally, maybe), the AV Club has premiered fresh images of the new human cast members in Jurassic World. That includes Guardians of the Galaxy‘s Star-Lord, Chris Pratt as Owen – a fellow who’s both in awe and wary of the dinosaurs that he keeps a watch over – along with Bryce Dallas Howard as one of the corporate-sponsored scientists/researchers in the film. Jurassic World is also keeping one Jurassic Park tradition alive, by intermixing human adults and kid characters – the latter played by Nick Robinson (The Kings of Summer) and Ty Simpkins (Iron Man 3), who appear to have spotted a dinosaur out of the frame in the last image below.

What remains to be revealed, however, is the connection between the kids and the grown-ups featured in Jurassic World. In past JP installments, the under-age human players have been related to one of the main human characters, but it’s also entirely possible that Robinson and Simpkins are just two random kids visiting the new Jurassic Park establishment – when, without warning, they find themselves being hunted by runaway dinos, once something goes wrong. (And, no doubt, something’s going to go wrong.)

The fourth Jurassic Park installment is being directed by Colin Trevorrow and boasts a script co-written by Trevorrow and Derek Connolly – the same director/writer duo responsible for the acclaimed 2012 indie flick, Safety Not Guaranteed. Story-wise, the film picks up in real time some 22 years after the original movie and features an up-and-running version of a dinosaur amusement park - one that does bear a resemblance to the “biological preserve” envisioned by John Hammond all those many years before, but may now be too much of a controlled, homogenous, product – and thus, is no longer capable of wowing the general public.

If that narrative sounds a bit like meta-fiction, then just know that it’s intentional. Trevorrow has long asserted that his planned approach to justifying the existence of a fourth Jurassic Park movie is pretty straightforward: deliver a fantastic cinematic adventure that blends elements of science-fiction, horror, action, and comedy, in order to come closer than previous sequels, to recapturing the magic of Steven Spielberg’s original Jurassic Park. We’ll sure be rooting for him to succeed.


Jurassic World opens in U.S. theaters on June 12th, 2015.

  1. I am super excited for this movie. I have always loved Jurassic Park as have so many of us and i really feel like Trevorrow is giving this franchise exactly what it needs. Pratt and Howard are great casts and i even dont hate those kids faces. Pratt looks like he is going to be a real Bad Ass dino dude which is what a Jurassic park story needs as far as im concerned. Even Grant while he was cool lacked badass-edness.

    • Huh. well there was a comment that said “yes.first” when i typed that initially. Guess i got no beef then.

      Everyone else digging Pratt for JPW?

      • Grant was bad ass in my book…he had those cool one liners with that serious face…You bred Raptors….

        • “The point is, you are alive when they start to eat you.”

  2. This gone be sequel of JP 3 or will be a sequel to the first?

    • both… since JP 3 is a sequel of the first 2…

  3. Bryce is looking goooooood

  4. looking forward to see if that becomes a movie or a theme park ride :D

  5. It takes place 22 years after the original jurassic park, so that means its after the events
    of jp 2 and jp 3. My guess is they are setting in two decades into the future so they did not
    have to reboot franch

  6. Chris Pratt for Indie, if they ever decide to reboot!

    • +1

  7. I hope Jurassic World as it seems to be implied by the title goes beyond ‘the Heart of Western Civilization’ and to other countries and continents, if not in this than maybe in the eventual sequel that hopefully will come.

    Jut wanna say that one of my favorite things about IM3 was Ty Simpkins.

  8. Great.. More annoying kids. I hope they die first.

    • Are you seriously upset that this film has kids in it. I also love that you can tell they’re annoying just from one photo.
      All of the jurassic park films have had kids in them, why should this one be any different? You’re embarrassing yourself by suggesting this should change.

      • In his defense, the kid from JP3 was a complete turd. Annoying in every definition of the word and just awful.

        I think this is the kid from Iron Man 3, he’s not bad.

        • maybe, but I also get a “Journey to the Center of the Earth” vibe from that picture. and let me guess: the older brother will be a little rebel, but in the end he and Pratt get friends…

      • The smaller kid’s wearing a Fanny Pack (for the love of god) — ’nuff said.

  9. seems like Chris Pratt is gaining more fame, good for him :)

  10. Whats with the hair on the kid? This ain’t the eighties!

  11. Man, I love Hawaii.
