Andy's Dinosaur Adventures - Jurassic World - Netflix
Jurassic World is a 2015 American science fiction adventure film and the fourth installment of the Jurassic Park film series, as well as the first film in a planned Jurassic World trilogy. It was directed and co-written by Colin Trevorrow, produced by Frank Marshall and Patrick Crowley, and stars Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard. The film was produced by Steven Spielberg's Amblin Entertainment, also responsible for the rest of the Jurassic Park franchise, and Thomas Tull's Legendary Pictures. Set twenty-two years after the events of Jurassic Park, Jurassic World takes place on the same fictional Central American island of Isla Nublar, off the Pacific coast of Costa Rica, where a theme park populated with cloned dinosaurs has operated for nearly a decade. The park plunges into chaos when a genetically-engineered dinosaur breaks loose and goes on a rampage. Universal Pictures intended to begin production on a fourth Jurassic Park film in 2004 for a summer 2005 release, but development stalled while the script underwent several revisions. Following a suggestion from Spielberg, writers Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver explored the idea of a functional dinosaur park. Once Trevorrow was hired as director in 2013, he followed the same idea while developing a whole new script with Derek Connolly. Principal photography rolled from April to August 2014, primarily in Louisiana while also using the original Jurassic Park filming locations in Hawaii. The dinosaurs depicted in the film were created through the use of CGI by Industrial Light & Magic and life-sized animatronics by Legacy Effects. Production was completed on May 10, 2015, and Jurassic World was released in over 60 countries beginning on June 10, 2015. After a record-breaking opening weekend where it became the first film to gross over $500 million worldwide, Jurassic World generated a total of $1.6 billion in box office revenue, becoming the third-highest-grossing film of all time, as well as the second-highest-grossing film of 2015 and the highest-grossing film in the franchise. A sequel titled Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom was released in June 2018.
Andy's Dinosaur Adventures - Themes and analysis - Netflix
Director Colin Trevorrow stated that the Indominus rex, the synthetic hybrid dinosaur at the center of the film's story, is symbolic of consumer and corporate excess. The dinosaur was “meant to embody [humanity's] worst tendencies. We're surrounded by wonder and yet we want more, and we want it bigger, faster, louder, better. And in the world of the movie, the animal is designed based on a series of corporate focus groups.” He also stated, “There's something in the film about our greed and our desire for profit. The Indominus rex, to me, is very much that desire, that need to be satisfied.” Film journalists have noted the parallels between the workings of the park in Jurassic World and the film and entertainment industry. Actor James DuMont stated that “the person [and] the environment are one” is one of the obvious themes. Another theme is that “those who do not stop evil are supporting and encouraging it”. The film also explores the concept of raising an animal in a particular way. The Indominus rex was said to have been raised in captivity without the presence of any siblings, thus making the creature somewhat “not fully functional”.
