Universal Delays When Dinosaurs Will Next Rule the Earth


Standing in the way of fake scientific progress, Universal has delayed the release of their long-developing fourth Jurassic Park film. The studio in January arbitrarily set a June 13, 2014 release date for the film but only two months later secured a director in Safety Not Guaranteed's Colin Trevorrow. He and his team evidently feel they need more than a year to render the flocks of resurrected Wayne Knights to be included in the film, so now the sequel is being pushed to a yet-undetermined date.

With June 13 now wide open, Sony has responded by moving the Channing Tatum-Jonah Hill comedy 21 Jump Street 2 a week to that date. So don't worry, one way or another, you can celebrate the weekend with a large, seemingly-primeval creature placed out of his time.
