The moment film fans from around the world have been patiently waiting for for many years has finally arrived… The latest film in the Jurassic Park series is being released this week! In what is sure to be one of the biggest movies of the summer, Jurassic World picks up many years after the original (and may or may not ignore the events of the 2nd and 3rd in the series, to many fans’ delight.) The (almost) entirely new cast have a wide range of experience in different genres of film, with a few Shakespearean film and stage roles on their resumes!
