Jurassic Park IV Officially Titled 'Jurassic World'; Release Date Pushed Back to 2015

2015 is definitely going to be one of the biggest years in film history, with a Superman Vs. Batman film on the horizon, Avengers: Age of Ultron continuing the adventures of our favorite superhero team, reboots of the original Terminator and the Fantastic Four, a sequel to Independence Day, a long overdue Ant-Man film, and even the return of Star Wars with J.J. Abrams' Episode VII. Well now you can add director Colin Trevorrow's fourth installment to the Jurassic Park franchise to that list, now officially titled Jurassic World and joining the line up of 2015's summer blockbusters. While details of the film have purely been speculation up to this point, it's new title may finally reveal some information regarding the film's plot.

Jurassic Park IV had been put on hold way back in May due to the limited time Trevorrow and fellow writer Derek Conolly (Safety Not Guaranteed) had for rewrites of Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver's (Both wrote for Rise of the Planet of Apes) script before the film's original planned release date of June 13, 2014. The 2014 release seemed unrealistic anyway, since the film had just found its director and not a single role had been cast yet. Many had written the film off as another failed attempt at a fourth installment to the franchise that would never see the light of day because of these set backs, but it seems those assumptions were proven wrong as we finally have confirmation on the film's release and title. While 2015 may present some more competition for the film in the box office due to the year's loaded schedule in big franchise sequels, it'll be released now on June 12, 2015.
While the new release date seemed like a necessary move for Trevorrow and co. to have a reasonable amount of time to put things together, it may end up not working out as well as the 2014 release would've for the film's box office gross. It'll now be coming out one week before the Michael Fassbender produced Assassin's Creed film adaption and Pixar's film Inside Out. Both of those films are sure to bring in a lot of audiences as Assassin's Creed has a large cult following of fans who have been anticipating the big screen adaption, and Inside Out is sure to take in a lot of the younger and family viewers that Jurassic World could've attracted if it would've had a more distant release. Luckily Jurassic World won't be having to worry about competition from what's sure to be next summer's heavy hitters, specifically Avengers: Age of Ultron and of course Superman Vs. Batman .
As for the more revealing piece of news regarding JP4, we now know the title is in fact going to be Jurassic World (Not to be confused with the series' second film 'The Lost World'). The title can mean one of two things as far as what it reveals of the films plot, or it could possibly mean neither one. The first hypothesis is that Jaffa and Silver ended up using an old draft for JP4 that we heard the synopsis for a few months back as the foundation for the story of Trevorrow's film. 
That plot included a story line in which the original Isla Nublar had in the present day become a theme park open to tourists from around the globe, hence the name "Jurassic World" (A play off of the theme park Disney World). This original draft had been written for Paramount, and had since been debunked as an "old draft" once it leaked online. It's still possible though that the basis of the plot remained intact while Jaffa and Silver (Or Trevorrow and Derek Conolloy through rewrites) changed other details such as the films dinosaurs, characters, and possibly it's location (Rumored to be Isla Sorna from Lost World) from that original draft. Here's the synopsis from that rumored plot:

"‘Jurassic Park 4,’ set in present day Isla Nublar, is now an actual theme park, as originally intended by John Hammond in the first film. It garners 10 million visitors per year and is completely safe – until it’s not. The park itself is described as very Sea World-esque and includes an area called the Isla Nublar Lagoon. That means underwater dino’s for the first time. No indication of what kind, but there’s concept art showing one of the aquatic dino’s, as part of a show, jumping out of the lagoon and eating a strung up great white shark like it was a fish for a dolphin at sea world.”

Personally, I think this plot for the film with a few modifications here and there could definitely result in the type of story we need to revive the Jurassic Park franchise, and hopefully launch a new trilogy. It makes perfect sense chronologically with the events of the previous three films, and can allow for new dinosaurs and characters to be introduced but also including some of the classics we all remember the movie for (I'm looking at you Jeff Goldblum). That being said, the probability that this plot could turn out to be the one Trevorrow ends up using is pretty minimal, and with all the numerous story lines that have been rumored and suggested for JP4, this one may just end up being another to add to the pile.
But Jurassic World may also be hinting at a much more obvious and literal plot for the film, where the dinosaurs of Isla Nublar may have found their way off the island and into the world of everyday society. While that might end up turning this film into a more Godzilla-esque apocalyptic movie, we may see a much more interesting take on dinosaurs once again ruling the world and humans now becoming the submissive species. I guess we'll see what Trevorrow has up his sleeve for Jurassic World in due time, but for now be looking out for it when it hits theater on June 12, 2015.
What do you think of the new release date for Jurassic Park IV? Are you happy with the title Jurassic World?
