(formerly) JP4's pre-annivesrary

When they released news that Jurassic Park IV was a certainty, and Universal Pictures set a release date, we put the date in our calendars. Today is the day, next year, that Jurassic Park IV should be making us wet our pants in pre-game excitement.

So they say:
In coordination with filmmakers, Universal has decided to release Jurassic Park 4 at a later date giving the studio and filmmakers adequate time to bring audiences the best possible version of the fourth installment in Universal's beloved franchise. We could not be more excited about the vision that Colin Trevorrow has created for this film, and we look forward to watching as he and the producers create another great chapter in this franchise's storied history.

With news that the film is being "delayed," it falls among some of the Top 10 movies that need to "escape development hell"  - - but don't click the link, because it's not on the list (mostly videogame and 80s cartoon adaptations -- topped by Ghostbusters III).

10 Potentially Awesome Movies That Need To Escape From Development Hell 

On my personal list of films that HAVE TO BE AVAILABLE TO THE PUBLIC SOON is VelociPastor! Where are you VelociPastor?!

In any case, takes a best guess at what to expect IF we expect the film to be released in 2014.
So Jurassic Park 4 is still progressing, but from what we gather, it's still in the design phase. So I would not expect filming to start this month, but who knows. If Universal is still planning to release Jurassic Park 4 in 2014, then it's likely they will start filming at the latest, this July. But again, nothing for sure until we hear more updates. So, until then, keep an eye on this website and our social feeds, which you can find links to in the footer of this page - for the latest updates on Jurassic Park 4.

6 Ways Jurassic Park Is A Commentary On Hollywood
To save you the "clicking" they are:
  1. Dinosaurs represent special effects
  2. John Hammond represents visionary directors
  3. Ian Malcolm represents a level-headed producer
  4. Donald Gennaro represents studio executives
  5. Alan Grant and Ellie Satler represent old moviegoers
  6. Lex and Tim represent young moviegoers
Pretty boring, especially considering the dinosaurs only represent "special effects" and Chaos Theory doesn't play a role in any capacity. I'm POSITIVE Spielberg wasn't making a commentary on Hollywood when producing Jurassic Park 20 years ago.

Early Crichton novels to be released as e-books 
You will soon be able to toss aside the three obsolete paperback copies of Jurassic Park in your basement for the digital version which won't yellow or dog-ear while you read it. 

Actual "news" on the new film
Only other rumour out there I know anything about is that some girl, Bryce Dallas Howard, is expected to star in it. In other news, my countdown widget is just a meaningless timer for what could have been ......
