JURASSIC WORLD Shooting in 35mm and 65mm; Starts Filming in April in Hawaii

     February 6, 2014


We have a couple of brief Jurassic World stories for you this morning.  First off, director Colin Trevorrow (Safety Not Guaranteed) tweeted that he’ll be working with cinematographer John Schwartzman on the picture, and they’ll be shooting on 35mm and 65mm.  As Bleeding Cool points out, 65mm strongly hints towards an IMAX release, although I would say the movie being a major blockbuster hints towards an IMAX release.  The 65mm just means it will probably look much better in IMAX.  Schwartzman’s filmography notably includes The Rock, Armageddon, and The Amazing Spider-Man, so he more than knows his way around a blockbuster.

Hit the jump for more.  The film stars Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Nick Robinson, and Ty SimpkinsJurassic World opens June 12, 2015.

We previously reported that shooting on Jurassic World would begin in Louisiana on June 2nd, and while that’s still true (per The Times-Picayune), production will actually start in April in Hawaii.  According to Midweek, the film is “scheduled to begin filming on Oahu for four weeks in April, followed by two weeks on Kauai”.  The Times-Picayune confirms filming in New Orleans will begin on June 2nd, and adds that the production will shoot there for 11 weeks.

You may recall that the film was originally set to shoot in Baton Rouge last year for a 2014 release, but had to be delayed so Trevorrow would have more time to work on the script.  Thankfully, there’s almost no competition in 2015 whatsoever.
