Jurassic Park’s Next Installment Will Be Shot On 35mm & 65mm Film

By Kishore Sawh on February 8th 2014

Jurassic Park is back, and being shot on film. Now, being a man, I am natively, two things. a) an ego covered in skin, and b) an 8 year old. Most things about me, and men, can be boiled down to some proportional combination of the two. I like flying because it allows me to feel that I can control this big machine to do what I want, and because they go fast. I like women, because they allow me to feel I can contr… You get the point. I’m also a great reader, and up for good discussion (read: argument). Yet, I’m not up for discussions with most other readers on one topic: movies.


Most readers who understand the last word in literature is neither The DaVinci Code or 50 Shades Of Nonsense, will take up the view that all books are better than their movie counterparts. They will also tell you – if you don’t smack them in time – why this is so.

They’re wrong and Jurassic Park is proof. I’ve read the book, and while fascinating and blessed with an eye for detail that would leave a nuclear physicist in the dark, you just can’t put words to paper that properly put a grin on your face the size of the equator, and peel you back to your inner 8 year old like actually seeing a T-Rex, with no dietary restrictions, eat a ‘blood sucking lawyer’ who’s sitting on the john. Colin Trevorrow, the director of the next Jurassic Park installment titled ‘Jurassic World’, knows this, and has decided to dispense with digital, and shoot the entire film on 35mm and 65mm film, so we can expect very sharp picture.

He wrote this in a recent tweet, mentioning cinematographer John Schwartzman, and tagged Kodak and Panavision. Small hints of the film have had forums abuzz but this piece is surely to make some purists happy. Digital generally offers less cost and it’s certainly more rare to use film given the advancement in digital into the 4K era. Also, the movie will likely not be shown via 70mm projection, but likely in IMAX.

Now there aren’t many other details released other than an expected premiere next June, and that it will likely stay more true to the other films in terms of science. In other words, it’ll be defying current evidence and science. However, I wouldn’t have it any other way. I’ll be there, ten rows back and center. My opinion? Never let the truth get in the way of artistic license and a good movie. Maybe that’s the photographer in me.
