While studios are phasing out distributing physical film prints and filmmakers are well on their way to embracing digital cameras, director Colin Trevorrow made a surprising announcement on twitter last night that he and cinematographer John Schwartzman will be keeping things old school by shooting the upcoming Jurassic Park sequel, Jurassic World, on film in both 35mm and 65mm formats.

Of course, the fact that they will be shooting at least a portion of the film in 65mm suggests that they may be aiming to present some sequences in a larger, IMAX format. Dinosaur attack sequences, anyone?
Jurassic World is set for a June 12, 2015 release.
