Looks like this one is a fake. The official Jurassic Park 4 website has posted an official denial. While a very snazzy design, the poster image was actually created by deviantART user ioinme. If you can pass as the real thing, you’re doing good work!
It seems like there’s more excitement and anticipation building for Jurassic Park IV, which lost some steam after the project was put on hiatus and its initial release date of June 2014 was pushed to a possible summer 2015 date. Perhaps fans of the Jurassic Park film series are feeling better about the project because its new director, Colin Trevorrow (Safety Not Guaranteed), wants to take his time and get the film right, instead of churning out a lackluster film. It also seems that the best bits and pieces about Jurassic Park IV are coming from industry conventions and exhibitor promotional materials.
A new teaser poster has leaked for Jurassic Park IV, believed to be part of the upcoming San Diego Comic-Con celebrations. It’s a simple poster of a mosquito encased in amber, fossilized tree resin, with the tagline “Life Found A Way.” The poster seems like the real deal, and it also confirms the film’s release date of summer 2015. So you can add Jurassic Park IV to the long list of amazing geek franchise sequels set for that summer, including Star Wars: Episode VII, Independence Day 2, The Avengers 2, Terminator 5, and the Prometheus sequel.
The teaser poster was leaked by an employee at Amblin Entertainment, who apparently wanted to prove the new film existed to one of their friends. It was anonymously leaked with the attached note below:
A friend of mine works for Amblin Entertainment, and he told me that a teaser poster will be released soon for the 2015 blockbuster, Jurassic Park IV. I didn’t believed him, so he just sent me a picture from the poster, without any comment. It seems valid, but I don’t know for sure. I think it will come to light soon!
After some consideration, it seems like a 2015 release date would be better for Jurassic Park IV, instead of its initial June 2014 target. That move gets it out of the way of another similar summer blockbuster, Gareth Edwards’ Godzilla reboot, which comes out in May 2014. While the Jurassic Park film series is a proven moneymaker for Universal, Godzilla also has a fan following that appeals to younger and much older moviegoers alike. Maybe the summer movie season only has room for one big monster movie a year.
Obviously, the teaser poster also points to the idea that more dinosaurs emerged after the events of Jurassic Park III. While it’s unclear if Jurassic Park IV is a reboot or a direct sequel, there have been early rumors that suggest that the Jurassic Park theme park has been up and running on Site A on Isla Nublar — the location of the original Jurassic Park film — for some time without any dangerous incident. The theme park has become very successful, and is now the most popular tourist destination on the planet. But when a new deadly aquatic dinosaur arrives at the park, it breaks loose to wreak havoc on many of Jurassic Park’s guests.
Director Colin Trevorrow has recently said that Jurassic Park IV will honor what came before it and fans will be very happy with the new Jurassic Park film. Trevorrow has also disclosed that he and his writing partner, Derek Connolly, are, in fact, writing the film’s new script. At the moment, no actors have been cast in the new sequel.
Jurassic Park IV will hit theaters everywhere during the summer of 2015, in 3D and IMAX.
