Jurassic World is a 2015 American science fiction adventure film. It is the fourth installment of the Jurassic Park series. It was directed and co-written by Colin Trevorrow, produced by Frank Marshall and Patrick Crowley, and stars Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard. The production companies were Steven Spielberg’s Amblin Entertainment, also responsible for the rest of the franchise, and Thomas Tull’s Legendary Pictures. Set twenty-two years after the events of Jurassic Park, this movie takes place on the same fictional island of Isla Nublar, off the Pacific coast of Central America, where a fully functioning dinosaur theme park has operated for ten years. The park plunges into chaos when a genetically modified dinosaur, Indominus rex, breaks loose and runs rampant across the island.
Two decades after the events at Jurassic Park, a new theme park, this movie, now operates in Isla Nublar, off the Pacific coast of Central America. This new park is run by the Masrani Global Corporation, which also owns InGen, the genetics company that creates the dinosaurs. Brothers Zach and Gray Mitchell are sent to visit their aunt, Claire, operations manager. Claire’s assistant greets them as she is too busy recruiting corporate sponsors.
Navy veteran Owen Grady trains the park’s four Velociraptors that consider him their pack alpha. Vic Hoskins, who works for InGen, believes that raptors are trainable for military use, despite Owen disputing this. Park owner Simon Masrani asks Claire to have Owen evaluate the park’s new hybrid dinosaur, Indominus rex before the attraction opens. Owen warns Claire that the Indominus, raised in isolation, is particularly dangerous because it is not socialized to other animals.
Owen and Claire discover that the Indominus has seemingly escaped. Owen and two staff enter the enclosure, but the Indominus, that is able to mask its heat signature and can camouflage itself, ambushes them before escaping into into the island’s interior. Owen wants it killed, but Masrani sends the Asset Containment Unit to capture the dinosaur alive. When most of the ACU team are killed, Claire orders the island’s northern sector evacuated.
Zach and Gray, exploring in a gyrosphere ride, ignore the evacuation order and wander into a restricted area where the Indominus attacks and destroys the sphere. The boys escape and come upon the ruins of the original Jurassic Park Visitor Center. After repairing an old Jeep, they drive back to the park resort. Not knowing where her nephews are, Claire asks for Owen’s help in searching for them. Trailing the boys, they barely escape the Indominus themselves. Meanwhile, Masrani and two troopers hunt Indominus by helicopter. Indominus smashes into the park’s aviary to escape gunfire, releasing pterosaurs. Several collide with the helicopter, causing it to crash and killing everyone aboard. Gray and Zach arrive back at the resort and find Owen and Claire as armed troopers are shooting at the swarming pterosaurs.
Hoskins assumes command and orders that the raptors be used to track the Indominus; Owen reluctantly agrees to the plan. The raptors follow Indominus ’ scent into the jungle but after encountering it, the animals begin communicating with one another; Owen realizes that Indominus was created with raptor DNA. It becomes the new alpha, and the pack follows it into the jungle; Hoskins, meanwhile, has Dr. Wu helicoptered off the island with dinosaur embryos, protecting his research. Owen, Claire, and the boys find Hoskins at the lab packing up more embryos, but a raptor breaks in and kills him.
Outside, Owen reestablishes his alpha bond with the three surviving raptors. Two raptors are killed attacking the Indominus. Realizing they are outmatched, Claire orders the park’s veteran T. rex to be released from its paddock and lures it into a vicious battle with the Indominus. The T. rex is overpowered until the lone surviving raptor attacks. The raptor and T. rex force the overwhelmed Indominus towards the lagoon, where it is dragged underwater by the park’s resident Mosasaurus.
Survivors are evacuated to the mainland, and the island is abandoned to the dinosaurs. Zach and Gray are reunited with their parents, while Owen and Claire decide they will stay together.
