Jurassic World Wraps Production, Reveals Some Scary Dinosaur Jaws

This has been a very good week for the production of Jurassic World. Not only did Guardians of the Galaxy establish itself as a worldwide success, quickly establishing Chris Pratt as one of the biggest stars in the world, the movie also finally finished shooting - as revealed in the photo above from director Colin Trevorrow.

The larger message of this Tweet is that the filming of Jurassic World has come to an end after many months, but it also provides us with a pretty cool image to dissect. It's pretty obvious that the slate is sitting inside the jaws of a giant dinosaur, but are those fossils or is it a model. Also, is that the mandibles of a Tyrannosaurus Rex, or another big prehistoric beast that we haven't seen so far in the Jurassic Park movies? It's a bit too early to tell, and there isn't much evidence out there to support any theory.

So what exactly was shooting on the final day of Jurassic World's production? Again, there aren't too many details, but some clues were dropped on producer Frank Marshall's personal Twitter feed:

Again, the headline here is that the movie is wrapping, but we can also get a sense of the last shots being filmed (before inevitable reshoots occur, of course). Most of the page is cut off, but it appears that the scene involves only Bryce Dallas Howard as Claire and one of the stunt coordinators. Her character will be following Owen (Chris Pratt) and they will be around a Mobile Vet Unit and using a hand-held monitor. Any info beyond that is a mystery.

In addition to the actors mentioned above, Jurassic World will also star Judy Greer, Jake Johnson, Nick Robinson, Vincent D'Onofrio , BD Wong, Omar Sy, Irrfan Khan, Ty Simpkins and Andy Buckley. The film will be only the second feature from Safety Not Guaranteed director Colin Trevorrow, who also co-wrote the script with Derek Connolly. Official plot details have not yet been released, though it has been revealed that the story will take place 22 years after the first Jurassic Park was attempted and will begin with the establishment being a thriving success. Obviously a plot can't exist without conflict, so expect all of that to go to hell in a hand basket within 20 minutes of the movie starting.

Jurassic World will be spending the next few months in post-production, but Universal Pictures will have the finished product in theaters on June 12, 2015.
