Jurassic World To Be Shot On 35mm And 65mm Film – Most Likely For Large-Format IMAX Style Sequences


More and more details of Jurassic World are creeping out, including confirmation of a long-standing story that the film will shoot some sequences on some or other islands of Hawaii. Most interesting, though, is that John Schwartzman has been appointed to shoot the film on both 35mm and 65mm stock.

The news came in a tweet from director Colin Trevorrow.

Schwartzman is a fine cinematographer. He recently shot a Dracula origin movie, Dracula Untold, and before that Saving Mr. Banks. Also on is resume are The Amazing Spider-Man, Green Hornet, Sea Biscuit, Armageddon and plenty more, all well shot.

The implications of 65mm likely include an IMAX release for the film, though not necessarily. 65mm can be used to shoot in widescreen formats too. I’d hope Trevorrow is opting for the latter. I can se Jurassic World working beautifully in an “old epics” style.
