The latest rumor has the Jurassic Park 4 trailer being released on or around Thanksgiving.

Slash Film says that it doesn't have confirmation but "we heard that we'll see something before the end of the month."

It provided no further details.

The Jurassic World trailer was originally reportedly set to debut with Interstellar earlier this month but an insider on the Box Office forums said that executives pushed it back due to the Furious 7 trailer. 

"From what I hear, once the decision to debut Fast 7 on Interstellar was made, the studio's original course of action was a non-ideal split target where the Jurassic trailer would premiere exclusively on IMAX prints of Interstellar with Fast 7 taking all other screens," the insider said.

"After a lot of back and forth the studio felt such a diluted debut theatrically may be counter intuitive. The final nail in the coffin came when the digital marketing team responsible for getting the trailers up on social media and film blogs objected to debuting two highly-anticipated trailers in the same window effectively splitting the online news coverage."

The insider said that the trailer will now be attached to the Hobbit 3, formally known as The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies.

That film is slated for a December 17, 2014 release.

There's also been some debate about whether the trailer will be released online first, or in theaters first.

Jurassic World, starring Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Irrfan Khan, and a host of others, is slated to hit theaters on June 12, 2015.
