The latest instalment in the dinosaur series was first announced by the Oscar-winning director at Comic-Con in 2011. It was later revealed to be hitting cinemas sometime before the end of 2014.

Discussing Jurassic Park 4 last year, producer Kathleen Kennedy said: "As filmmakers, we often sit there going, 'Okay. We have to answer the question: Why do another one?' If you can't answer that question, you shouldn't be doing it.

"It's tough. We're trying to come up with a story that makes sense and isn't going to disappoint people and is, hopefully, going to get people excited and reinvigorate the franchise. We've got to start with a script and the story."



Based on Michael Crichton's 1990 novel, Jurassic Park followed a team of scientists as they trek through an island theme park populated by resurrected dinosaurs.

The movie earned more than $900 million at the worldwide box office and won Oscars for 'Best Sound Effects Editing', 'Best Sound' and 'Best Visual Effects'.

Sam Neill, Laura Dern, Jeff Goldblum and Richard Attenborough featured in the cast for Jurassic Park, which spawned sequels in 1997 and 2001.

The original will be re-released in 3D and IMAX 3D on April 5, 2013 to mark its 20th anniversary.
