'Jurassic World' is as Far as it Goes! No Real-Life Dinos, says Scientist

For those of you who thought that Jurassic Park’s fiction could ever wake up one day and find itself fact will be disappointed. Just as the latest entry into the franchise is announced – Jurassic World – a scientist has burst a collective bubble that was swelling with the recent announcement.

Jurassic World

It re-enters the back of peoples’ minds every Christmas or Easter, when Jurassic Park reaches our tellyboxes. "Maybe…they could do that in real life. I mean, they can clone sheep now," people think. But science has an answer for you dreamers out there, and it’s no.

"Intuitively, one might imagine that the complete and rapid engulfment in resin, resulting in almost instantaneous demise, might promote the preservation of DNA in a resin entombed insect, but this appears not to be the case. So, unfortunately, the Jurassic Park scenario must remain in the realms of fiction,” Dr David Penney, an amber expert at the University of Manchester and Keynote speaker at the bubble-bursting alliance, said according to The Telegraph.

Universal Pictures has announced that Jurassic Park IV has been renamed Jurassic World and will open in cinemas on 12 June 2015. The announcement comes after the supposed sequel languished in the unknown; it looked like the phenomenally successful dino-movies wouldn’t get a fourth film. Now 2015 is shaping up to be the year of the blockbuster. With Jurassic World kicking off the summer, Man of Steel 2 and Star Wars Episode VII will follow, not to mention Avengers: Age of Ultron, too.
