Dinosaurs run riot again in cinemas this June, as a new sci-fi saga about rampaging reptiles opens.
Starring Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard and directed by Colin Trevorrow, 'Jurassic World' is set 22 years after 'Jurassic Park', and the dream project in that movie – a dinosaur theme park – is now a reality.

'Jurassic World' is the fourth in the series of movies after Steven Spielberg's original, which was based on the bestseller by Michael Crichton about a park of cloned dinosaurs.
Dallas Howard, 34, said at the movie's world premiere in Paris on 30 May: "This is a movie (franchise) that transformed cinema, particularly the cinematic and theatrical experience for my generation." The actress plays a scientist who has been conducting research on velociraptors.
Director Trevorrow said this movie is "about our relationship with animals that we share our planet with".
"These animals were here long before us and they've existed on the planet longer than we could hope to and I think that is a very humbling idea," he added.
In the movie, a new genetically-modified dinosaur called Indominus Rex is created to increase visitor numbers to the theme park, but of course, the new attraction did not turn out as expected.
"The Indominus Rex represent progress and our desire to make profits at all costs," the director said.
Pratt, who plays a velociraptor trainer, could not resist a wisecrack.
"Working with dinosaurs is dangerous, but luckily we survived and no dinosaurs were harmed in the making of this film," he quipped.
