Jake Johnson wanted to make clear that he was the great American actor, not just the funny guy on 'New Girl.'
I love the challenge of having one character who is traveling back in time to find someone. Nowadays, the only way we think to find someone is on Facebook.
'Jurassic Park' movies don't fit into a specific genre. They're sci-fi adventures that also have to be funny, emotional, and scary as hell. That takes a lot of construction, but it can't feel designed.
The best of all kinds of movies are character-driven, and I definitely don't want to lose sight of why Derek and I started to write movies together in the first place. — © Colin Trevorrow

I like how you can go back and watch David Lean and John Ford and see the influence that had on Steven Spielberg, especially David Lean, in the camerawork, and yet, you don't watch any Spielberg movie and think of David Lean. Once you're looking for it, you see it all, but it's not in your face.
I don't have a PR rep. I live in Vermont.
I feel like, on a more macro scale, there's started to be a relationship between filmmakers and people who watch their films - you know, on Twitter and on the Internet.
We've all been disappointed by new installments of the stories we love. But with all this talk of filmmakers 'ruining our childhood,' we forget that right now is someone else's childhood. This is their time. And I have to build something that can take them to the same place those earlier films took us.
There's a glee in building a world that is constructed on corporate synergy and all the luxuries of our modern life, and then just tearing it apart. I enjoy that!
I feel like, whatever movie I was making, there would always be moments of human intimacy and insight into a little bit of what makes us tick as people.
I like to believe that intimate moments between characters don't need to be relegated to independent films.
There's no such thing as good or bad dinosaurs. There are predators and prey. The T-Rex in 'Jurassic Park' took human lives and saved them. No one interpreted her as good or bad.
I love the kind of movies I watched when I was a kid. But, I also love telling great stories.
I was going to go and do what I should do as a filmmaker and make slightly larger films each time, learn my craft, make mistakes and solve them. — © Colin Trevorrow

My wife is French, and so I get to see America through her eyes, which informs a lot of little moments. It means I can poke fun at very particular things about us.
I'm a 'Star Wars' kid. I'm a 'Back to the Future' kid. I'm a Spielberg kid.
I don't know if I wanted to be Spielberg; I would never say that.
I can say pretty confidently that I am not the right guy to do a superhero movie, just because I was not a comic book kid. I don't know that mythology, and I don't have it ingrained in me in the way that a lot of these other directors do.
I would just encourage people: your childhood belongs to you, and don't give anyone, especially me, the power to ruin your childhood.
Like a lot of people my age, I grew up on Amblin movies. They're a part of who I am as a filmmaker and, arguably, as a person.
I'm from Oakland and San Francisco, so I feel like the Pacific Northwest starts there and goes north - so, it's home to me.
'Jurassic Park' is like 'Star Wars.' Different directors can give a different taste to each movie.
I'm such a proponent of the theatrical experience and the cinematic experience, and we've reached this point where the magicians are not only giving away their tricks, but they're telling us how they're doing the tricks in advance before you even come to the magic show. It'd be nice to get a little of the mystery back in.
We're so surrounded by so much of this marketing and just being told on a regular basis that you have to like this, you will go here, you want this. I found that to me that fit perfectly into what a theme park of dinosaur would be about.
There's something about dinosaurs that should be very humbling to human beings.
Never since we discovered there were dinosaurs did anyone get sick of them.
I live in Vermont, and we don't have a tax incentive there, and therefore, we don't have professional crew there.
I've said before: 'If you're going to earnestly sing a song around a campfire, you'd better be a Muppet!' Or else we're just not going to buy it.
I tell you, man, I'm every bit as a 'Star Wars' fan as anyone else.
Where I live, in Vermont, there's this thing that women know about men, which is this disease: their childhood was so idyllic that nothing in the rest of their life can ever be satisfying. It's almost a plague.
I was re-watching 'E.T.' recently, and that scene where they're all around the pizza, bringing the pizza in, and gambling and stuff together, it's such an amazing tone, it's so rough, and nobody's really talking about anything, and it feels like you're in that room with them.
I was not a kid who watched every movie. I watched a very small number of movies over and over again.
There's scary stuff in 'Raiders of the Lost Ark.' There's some really nasty skeletons and dead bodies.
We would go back and maybe not say that thing to our dad that we said, or maybe be a little nicer to someone who we cared about and had a relationship with when we were young. You know, they're subtle things, but we carry those with us forever. And I think that regret and time travel are intrinsically linked to me.
I didn't watch horror movies when I was a kid. I didn't watch any bad movies.
Big, big movies are in 3D, but we haven't reached a point yet where that's just what a movie is.
I'm gullible. I think people mean what they say.
There's no shame in being romantic at all. I think people want to feel that sense of romance, which is rarely even attempted anymore.
There's something really interesting about how human beings just want to see animals tear each other apart, maybe because we can't do it. — © Colin Trevorrow

I think living things can recognize the movement of other living things, and all the best animators in the world can't quite capture that something.
I'm in a kind of weird position where I want to prove that I can do smaller movies.
The movies of our particular childhood were so great that it's almost impossible to recapture that magic, especially as adults.
I'm very interested in 3D.
That's the thing about leaks: sometimes they aren't misinterpreted or false.
Obviously it's a thrill to direct a 'Jurassic Park' film, and it's a great honor.
We live in a cult of the upgrade right now. There's always something around the corner that will make whatever you think is cool right now feel obsolete.
I think, if you can, it's OK to put something in a movie because it makes you feel good.
I prefer to be scared in a way that a 12-year-old would want to be.
In a movie that's sort of a single monster movie, like 'Jaws,' once you see the animal, it identifies the threat, and you're able to start working on ways to take down the threat.
Nobody wants to make a bad 'Flight of the Navigator' remake. There's just no interest. We're going to do it if it's good. — © Colin Trevorrow

I learned on film at NYU. I was probably the last generation that was analog. Anyone who was a year younger than me, it was probably all digital.
I read certain articles about how all of the new filmmakers are immediately being given massive tentpoles, and there's a lot of original movies that we have now lost as a result of this. I don't want to call it a fad because I think it's a good thing. I think the movies are better as a result.
I feel like we've found an interesting little corner of the sandbox here as far as the way we're telling sci-fi stories. I don't think it's limited to sci-fi - I think anything fantastic can co-exist with people you and I know, and not these hyper-real movie people.
I think that no relationship goes completely according to plan or the way you wished it had.
Michael Giacchino is a fiercely creative musical mind and a true 'Jurassic Park' fan.
'Jurassic World' takes place in a fully functional park on Isla Nublar. It sees more than 20,000 visitors every day. You arrive by ferry from Costa Rica. It has elements of a biological preserve, a safari, a zoo, and a theme park. There is a luxury resort with hotels, restaurants, nightlife and a golf course. And there are dinosaurs.
'Jurassic Park' isn't about the bad luck of three people who keep getting thrown into the same situation.
'Jurassic Park' doesn't belong to America; it belongs to the whole world.
I love big movies, and I love big moments.
Three 'Jurassic Park' movies isn't enough! You want more!
