With the news that Jurassic Park will be exceeding its status as a trilogy, excitement reached fever-pitch with the prospect that dinosaur fever will be returning in the near future. And now, we have a date to look forward to: June 13th, 2014.

Each of the three previous films, with the last two receiving a much more mixed reception than the universally acclaimed first, proved to be massive box office achievements when they were released in 1993, '97 and 2001 respectively and the new one will look to carry on this trend of box office success. In light of the new film being released in the not-so-distant future, Universal have announced that the third film from the franchise will be released in 3D later in the year to get people ready for the long-awaited fourth instalment of the prehistoric adventure.

The first two films were directed by Steven Spielberg, who served as producer on all three films, but he gave up his post by the time of the third in favour of Joe Johnson. The web is now rife with questions as to whether Spielberg will resume his place behind the camera for the next film, which will be shot in 3D, or let someone else helm the film again. No other details have been announced alongside the release date.
