Jurassic Park IV is Jurassic World!

This makes me happy.

Universal has announced that the long-gestating fourth installment of their Jurassic Park franchise (which celebrated twenty years this year with last Spring's 3D re-release of the first entry) is now officially set to hit theaters in mid-June of 2015, right smack in the middle of one of the busiest summers to date when it comes to geek catnip at the cinemas. We don't know much about the flick, which arrives fourteen years after the last installment, except that it will be directed by Colin Trevorrow, and will be entitled Jurassic World (the name, perhaps of the fully-functional theme park that's rumored to be the film's setting?). No idea if any of the original stars (Sam Neill, Jeff Goldblum, Laura Dern) will be making return visits, but don't worry, I'm sure I'll have lots to say on this one as we learn more about it.
