The June 2014 release date for "Jurassic Park 4" is now extinct.

Universal Pictures announced Wednesday that it is moving the film's debut to "a later date," but did not say when that would be.

The fourth "Jurassic" installment, directed by Colin Trevorrow and with Steven Spielberg on board as an executive producer, was originally scheduled to debut on June 13 of next year. The first "Jurassic Park" film celebrates its 20th anniversary this year, and got a 3-D re-releasein theaters last month.

Here's the full statement from Universal, via Entertainment Weekly:

"In coordination with filmmakers, Universal has decided to release 'Jurassic Park 4' at a later date giving the studio and filmmakers adequate time to bring audiences the best possible version of the fourth installment in Universal's beloved franchise. We could not be more excited about the vision that Colin Trevorrow has created for this film, and we look forward to watching as he and the producers create another great chapter in this franchise's storied history."
