"If The Pirates of the Caribbean breaks down, the pirates don't eat the tourists."
A tremor rippling inside a glass of water. Amphibian DNA. Velociraptors. John Williams' unforgettable score. These are but a few of the indelible memories put inside audiences' minds from director Steven Spielberg's Jurassic Park, the first part of tonight's Jurassic Park double feature.
Jurassic Park wasn't the first movie ever made about dinosaurs, but prior to 1993, they had never felt so real before. While Dr. Ian Malcolm's (Jeff Goldblum) prophetic comments about the dangers of the park predictably turn out to be true, the novelty of escaping from a Tyrannosaurus Rex or a duo of Velociraptors thrilled audiences and ensured that two more installments followed.
Jurassic Park III closes out the double feature, and sees Dr. Alan Grant (Sam Neill) head back to the original island's Site B, Isla Sorna, to rescue his biggest fan (Trevor Morgan). Co-starring William H. Macy and Tea Leoni, and introducing the flying Pteranodon, Jurassic Park III stands as the final chapter of the franchise — until the fourth ulitmately gets made. jurassic park 1 & 3

We have a story, I can happily announce right now. We have a writer... Hopefully, we'll be making Jurassic Park 4 in the near future. In the next two or three years.
Director Joe Johnston's new movie, Captain America: The First Avenger, doesn't open until this Friday, but Johnston is already planning his follow-up, a Marvel Studios "period" superhero movie. Johnston surprised — and thrilled — a lot of sci-fi fans recently when he revealed that he has been trying to convince George Lucas to "make a feature based on Boba Fett," the über-popular Star Wars character that he created for Lucas back in the '70s.
But, dream projects aside, Johnston has a deal with Marvel to make at least one more movie and he said over the weekend that he would consider doing anything from a sequel to Captain America or a spin-off movie featuring James "Bucky" Barnes (Sebastian Stan) to an adaptation of some altogether different character from the "Marvel vault." Johnston also offered an update on the long-gestating Jurassic Park IV, a project he last updated back in January 2010. what did johnston say? >> Posted 07.18.11 by BrentJS
It's a long-gestating sequel, with Jurassic Park III hitting theaters 10 years ago. Last January, Captain America: The First Avenger and Jurassic Park III director Joe Johnston revealed "there's going to be a Jurassic Park IV", and that it would spark another trilogy of Jurassic Park movies. While no confirmation of that has occurred, it does seem that Steven Spielberg is interested in returning to the prehistoric amusement park. could it happen? >> Posted 06.17.11 by Ryan
Director Joe Johnston has been quietly lining up his next projects while his long-delayed latest film, The Wolfman, languishes in post-production. In a recent interview with BoxOffice to promote The Wolfman, Johnston confirmed that he was in the process of developing not only a fourth installment in the Jurassic Park franchise, but a fifth and sixth, as well.
Well, there is going to be a Jurassic Park IV. And it's going to be unlike anything you've seen. It breaks away from the first three — it's essentially the beginning of the second Jurassic Park trilogy. It's going to be done in a completely different way. That's pretty much all I can tell you.
Johnston also dropped some plot details about of one of the most highly anticipated comic book movies currently in development, The First Avenger: Captain America. Johnston, attached to direct, teased that the film version of Captain America will be "something different" and not what fans might "expect," but added that it will be a "a lot of fun."
It is influenced by the comic book, but it goes off in a completely different direction. It's the origin story of Captain America. It's mostly period — there are modern, present-day bookends on it — but it's basically the story of how Steve Rogers becomes Captain America. The great thing about Captain America is he's a super hero without any super powers. Which is why this story, among the hundreds of superhero stories, appealed to me the most. He can't fly, he can't see through walls, he can't do any of that stuff. He's an everyman who's been given this amazing gift of transformation into the perfect specimen — the pinnacle of human perfection. How does that affect him? What does that mean for him emotionally and psychologically? He was this 98-pound weakling, he was this wimp, and he's transformed instantly into this Adonis. You'd think he got everything he wanted. Well, he didn't get everything he wanted. The rules change at that point and his life gets even more complicated and dire. For me, that's the interesting part of the story. It's got some great action sequences in it and some incredible stuff that we've never seen before. But at the heart of it, it's a story about this kid, who all he wants to do is fit in. This thing happens and he still doesn't fit in. And he has to prove himself a hero — essentially go AWOL to save a friend. Eventually at the very end, I don't want to give away too much, but he does fit in. But it's the journey of getting him there that's interesting.
It is unclear from the interview just how far along in the development process the new Jurassic Park trilogy might be or when Jurassic Park IV might go into production. The First Avenger: Captain America is currently scheduled to begin production in June. Posted 01.15.10 by BrentJS
