The once and future king of the techno-thriller genre, Michael Crichton, has a new film coming out in his Jurassic Park franchise. The original book and film held some inspiration from Crichton’s time spent in Costa Rica’s Isla del Coco, and Steven Spielberg filmed parts of the first movie in country.
Jurassic Park was originally set on the fictional Isla Nubar, Costa Rica, and now the world gears up for the fourth installment of the Jurassic movie series. Although Michael Crichton and Steven Spielberg changed a bit of the logistical information of Costa Rica, the first film showcased a fair amount of the country’s natural beauty. The new Jurassic World, coming out Thanksgiving Day, is primarily filmed in Hawaii, Louisiana and California, but it is set once again in the Isla Nubar of the previous films fabricated location in Costa Rica.
Chris Pratt stars in the new adaptation of the Jurassic film series. The plot consists of a now functioning park 22 years after the original debacle on the Isla Nubar, Costa Rica. The park, as first intended by John Hammond, has become a reality, but not without some consequence. Owen (Chris Pratt) is a research scientist working with velociraptors at the park. Jurassic Park is now run by the Masrani Corporation. A genetically modified dinosaur is recklessly unleashed in the park by a negligent research team, and thus the carnage ensues.
Look to enjoy Jurassic World on November 28th, 2014 at theaters nationwide.
