With Jurassic World's cast now moving onto other projects, many of them are again in the spotlight and are always asked about Jurassic World, which nobody knows anything about. Today, we have two new interviews - one from Jake Johnson who plays Lowery in the film, and one with Courtney James Clark who plays Sarah, a Park Announcer.
First up is Jake Johnson's interview with MTV where he is asked "the question that no one asks". And that question is how normal is it to be working with Colin and Derek again. Watch the video below:
He says "They’re my friends, we were here at Sundance with this indie movie [Safety Not Guaranteed] we made for $600,000 - and then we're on the [Jurassic World] set."
"It's the question I've never gotten," Johnson continued, "about how normal it was between action and set. When Colin calls, 'Quiet!' It's just like, 'Alright, now I’m working with Derek and Colin's words.'"
In the second interview, Courtney James Clark spoke with the guys at the Atomic Geekdom podcast and spoke about her role in Jurassic World. As you can expect, she couldn't reveal anything, other than the name of her character 'Sarah', and that she plays a Park Announcer.
Here are some key points from her interview: She says that Jurassic Park is ET for her generation, and she loved Jurassic Park growing up. The audition process was super secretive and it wasn't titled 'Jurassic World' (most likely Ebb Tide). The material she read for wasn't the same material on-set and she didn't know what she was auditioning for until she got a callback. She had sent a tape in and was amazed to find out it was Jurassic World.
Courtney praised Colin as a director, saying he was like a kid in a candy store on set; he was so excited, awesome to be around and pumped about every detail. "He's a fantastic person and director who let's you play, and gives you what you need. He deserves every good stuff that comes his way."
Every set she's worked on has been positive, but this one she felt like her and Colin were already friends before filming. He remembered things about her audition, tiny things. She worked with some of the cast, she can't say who. Everyone was excited... the grips, crew, hair and make-up, actors, everyone was fantastic. One of the best sets to be a part of.
Courtney mentioned that the filmmakers are making sure little things from the previous films are kept in Jurassic World - meaning reaction shots and such, and she said how the previous films have always had a humour element to them and Jurassic World does too.
Everybody was "serious about the work but ready to play". Some stuff was green screen, some wasn't. She was only in Louisiana. "I hope so" about being in a sequel. "You never know". And finally, Courtney was asked if she had seen the movie yet, to which she hinted that she may have seen a cut of it.
You can listen to the podcast here. Her interview begins at 6:30.
What Can Judy Greer Tell Us About Jurassic World?

With Jurassic World less than six months away, we've yet to learn the actual synopsis for the film, other than what has been hinted through the trailer and what has been assumed based on the merchandise and viral marketing. Those involved with the film have spoken positively about it and about their time on set, but have been sparse on details with Vincent D'Onofrio even saying that he can't say anything about it - and saying that no one has guessed the plot as of yet.
Thanks to a Facebook Q&A, we know that Judy Greer plays Bryce Dallas Howard's sister in the film, and is Ty Simpkins and Nick Robinson's mother who sends the boys to Jurassic World.
Judy Greer was recently on the Larry King show and naturally was asked about the upcoming film. As expected, she couldn't say anything - even with Larry prompting her about the new hybrid dinosaur, the Indominus Rex. Check out the video below:
While it is a shame that the actors aren't able to speak about the film, it will be worth it when we get a surprise in cinemas come June 12th. I think the best bet is to stay connected to JurassicWorld.com and MasraniGlobal.com and to enjoy the viral marketing that is beginning to hint at Jurassic World's plot.
What are your thoughts on the film's marketing so far? Let us know in the comments section below, or in our forum!

Jurassic Park screenwriter gives praise to the Jurassic World script

Jurassic Park writer David Koepp was recently intreviewed by the Radio Times while promoting his new film and naturally, the topic of Jurassic World came up. As reported back in 2012, he was approached to draft a Jurassic Park 4 before Colin Trevorrow and Derek Connolly were brought on board, which he turned down. However, Koepp has revealed that he has read some drafts of Jurassic World and thinks they're terrific.
"I'm very excited, I read a couple of drafts of their scripts and thought it was terrific."
He also talked about the challenge of finding new ways to bring people to he island after the previous instalments and that Jurassic World does this in a believable way.
"The thing about the Jurassic Park movies is they’re not a serialised adventure, as you’re not following a character as he goes off to a new place. Every time, you have to come up with a reason why rational people would go back to this island. I think they did it brilliantly this time in a way that I absolutely believe a hundred percent, and makes me really believe in the movie."
In addition to talking Jurassic World, he also spoke about the original movie. Among the things said, Koepp stated that he ranks Jurassic Park as his best work.
