Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom (June 22, 2018)

Post by WyldeMan on 7/23/2015, 3:54 pm

Universal Pictures has set a June 22, 2018, release date for Jurassic World Sequel, which hopefully will have a catchier title and a director soon. But it does have Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard returning as the leads and Jurassic World helmer Colin Trevorrow writing the script. He isn’t returning as director because it’s expected he’ll instead go off and do one of the Star Wars films. Frank Marshall andSteven Spielberg are also in the braintrust.

It’s not surprising Universal would move aggressively on another sequel based on the novel by the late Michael Crichton, or that it would do it faster than the 14 years it took to make the fourth Jurassic movie. That delay had much to do with the tensions between Universal brass and Spielberg after his DreamWorks got close to making a distribution deal with the studio that owns the lot where he has been headquartered his entire career. Spielberg stayed in those Amblin offices, but the feelings were frosty when Spielberg’s DreamWorks made a distribution alliance at the last minute with Disney, leaving Universal at the altar.

All that is forgotten after the outsized performance of Jurassic World, which has grossed $614.3 million domestic and a whopping $1.522 billion worldwide. This week it became the third-highest-grossing film of all time, passing The Avengers.

I watched it yesterday and as a big Jurassic franchise fan I loved it as much as the original and it is a lot of fun. Didn't expect to enjoy it neatly as much as I did. I still remember seeing the original JP in theaters when I was 7 years old and just falling in love with dinosaurs after that. I started to feel the same way I did as an eight year old viewing dinosaurs for the first time again, the Indominus Rex was such a bad ass. Also, they make fun of it's name many times in the movie while also paying homage to the original many many times over. I loved JW and am really looking forward to the sequel with Chris and Bryce who had fantastic chemistry and worked great together. Reminded me a lot of Sam and Laura in JP. My only complain about this sequel news is that you'd think $1.5 billion would warrant a sequel in two years, not three. Though if that just means it's going to be even better than I imagine I can wait, hell I waited 14 years for this one, what's one more?

Trevorrow Reveals ‘Jurassic Park’ Quote That Inspired Sequel
It took long enough, but a fourth Jurassic Park movie hit theaters this summer and it looks like—from a box office perspective, at least—it was well worth the wait. I imagine not even Universal could have predicted that Jurassic World would not only break the opening weekend record, but go on to become the third highest grossing film of all time worldwide. It was no surprise, then, when Universal Pictures announced a further sequel for release in 2018 with Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard returning.

While director Colin Trevorrow won’t be back in the director’s chair (he’s busy with a little thing called Star Wars: Episode IX), he is involved in Jurassic World 2 as the co-screenwriter alongside frequent collaborator Derek Connolly, as well an executive producer. So while Trevorrow has his sights set on a galaxy far, far away, his immediate focus is on crafting the story for the Jurassic World follow-up so that another filmmaker can come in and take over the franchise.

Trevorrow previously teased that the story for Jurassic World 2 won’t necessarily be confined to a single island yet again, and in an appearance on the Jurassic Cast Podcast, he went so far as to reveal the single line of dialogue from Jurassic Park that’s serving as the “thesis” for the Jurassic World sequel:

“Honestly, the trilogy is articulated in Jurassic Park, it’s all in there… Jurassic World is all based on Ian Malcolm’s quote, ‘You stood on the shoulders of geniuses to accomplish something as fast as you could, and before you even knew what you had, you patented it, and packaged it, and slapped it on a plastic lunchbox, and now you wanna sell it.’ That to me is Jurassic World, that’s why I had all the product placement, that’s what it was. The second one, Jurassic World 2, and as we were driving we tried to find, what is the foundation? ‘Dinosaurs and man, separated by 65 million years of evolution have been thrown back into the mix together. How can we know what to expect?’ That’s why it’s exciting that the movie did well, that leaves us a lot of room to run, and it was part of this design, it had a beginning, middle, and end when we wrote the first movie. Now that the movie did well, we get to play that out.”

Trevorrow seemingly confirms that yes, a new trilogy of films is being planned with Jurassic World 2 acting as the middle installment and considering the consequences of bringing dinosaurs back on a global scale. The filmmaker further teased that the follow-up will be a bit of a departure for the franchise:



“It will get to be a different kind of film. The audience has given us permission to a certain extent to take this to the next level, and I don’t necessarily mean in scale, I feel very strongly that it’s not about more dinosaurs or bigger and better dinosaurs, it’s about using this as a starting point for a much larger story about our relationship with these animals and about animals in general and the dynamic created by bringing them back to life.”

With regards to bringing back Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard as paper-thin characters Owen and Claire, respectively, Trevorrow says they’re organically part of the sequel because they’re directly connected to the fallout from Jurassic World:

Jurassic World was very much made with the fans in mind, and I’m not going to forget it, but now we’ve seen a lot of ‘dinosaurs chasing people around on an island’ movies. I think you guys and also the general audience is going to be down to explore where else we can go. We know Owen is going to be in it and Claire will be in it and neither will be in the same place that we left them in this movie, Even though Claire is the one who evolves the most over the trilogy, it’s her story that mirrors this changing world, Owen has shit to deal with. The two of them opened Pandora’s Box in Jurassic World and each of them are responsible for different elements of it in different ways, and I think the way that these characters are connected to the circumstances of what’s happening it’s different than the previous films. It’s not ‘Let’s manufacture a way to get them somewhere,’ they’re embedded into it now in a way that as story tellers makes it much easier for us to keep them involved and doesn’t feel as contrived.”



I find Jurassic World an increasingly curious box office phenomenon—it’s an OK movie that is technically a worldwide runaway success, and yet I don’t feel like people are running around quoting lines of dialogue or planning their Owen Grady Halloween costumes as they were with the original. It didn’t capture the zeitgeist like other box office behemoths have, and yet it’s the #3 movie of all time. It just feels like Jurassic World is a fairly innocuous movie, so I’m mighty curious to see what direction Trevorrow and Connolly take the sequel, and what kind of filmmaker is tasked with continuing the franchise.

Looks like JA Bayona may be taking over as director now that he's moved on from World War Z 2. That guy just wants to direct somebody's sequel.

‘Jurassic World 2’ Finds Director in J.A. Bayona
J.A. Bayona is on board to direct “Jurassic World 2” for Universal Pictures.

Producer Frank Marshall and “Jurassic World” director Colin Trevorrow confirmed the news on Twitter.

Bayona had long been rumored to be the frontrunner for the job after he parted ways with another major sequel, “World War Z 2,” last year. Sources tell Variety that a deal has officially closed.

Exec producers Steven Spielberg and Trevorrow will reunite with stars Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard for the follow-up to one of the biggest blockbusters in the history of cinema. Marshall and Pat Crowley will produce along with Belén Atienza.

Trevorrow and his writing partner Derek Connolly penned the script.

“Jurassic World” blew away box office records, scoring the biggest domestic opening of all time with $205 million. The film went on to make $1.7 billion worldwide — including $652 million in the U.S. — putting it in the top five highest-grossing films rankings domestically and worldwide.

Bayona made a splash with his Oscar-nominated 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami pic “The Impossible” and soon became one of the most sought-after helmers in town. The director ended up choosing Focus’ “When a Monster Calls” as his follow-up, which stars Liam Neeson and Felicity Jones, and opens later this fall.

James Cromwell Joins ‘Jurassic World’ Sequel
James Cromwell, currently starring in HBO’s “The Young Pope,” has been cast in Universal Pictures and Amblin Entertainment’s “Jurassic World” sequel.

The studio is keeping details about Cromwell’s character information under wraps. “Jurassic World” generated $1.67 billion worldwide in 2015 — the fourth-best grosser of all time, trailing only “Avatar,” “Titanic” and “Star Wars: The Force Awakens.”

Cromwell joins Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard, who are reprising their roles, along with Toby Jones and Justice Smith. Shooting begins next month with “A Monster Calls” director J.A. Bayona helming.

Universal has already set a June 22, 2018, release date for the untitled project, where it has no competition. “Jurassic World” director Colin Trevorrow wrote the script with Derek Connolly.

Jeff Goldblum Joins 'Jurassic World' Sequel

Jeff Goldblum is returning to the land of dinosaurs.

The actor, who co-starred in 1993's Jurassic Park and 1997's The Lost World: Jurassic Park, will appear in Universal Pictures and Amblin Entertainment’s next Jurassic World film.

J.A. Bayona (A Monster Calls) is directing the next installment in the studio's hit franchise. Jurassic World earned $1.67 billion worldwide in 2015 and is the fourth-highest-grossing film in history.

Stars Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard are returning for the sequel, which also stars Justice Smith, James Cromwell and Toby Jones. Colin Trevorrow, who directed Jurassic World, wrote the script for the follow-up with Derek Connolly. The film is slated for release on June 22, 2018.

Producers Frank Marshall and Pat Crowley once again join executive producers Steven Spielberg and Trevorrow in the next chapter of the franchise. Belén Atienza is also producing. Universal vp production Sara Scott is overseeing production on behalf of the studio.

Goldblum will reprise his role as Dr. Ian Malcolm, the know-it-all mathematician who came to the park as an insurance consultant — and somehow survived both the original film and the sequel.

Goldblum will next be seen in Disney and Marvel’s Thor: Ragnarok, set to hit theaters Nov. 3. His other recent credits include Independence Day: Resurgence and The Grand Budapest Hotel. He also is reuniting with director Wes Anderson on the upcoming film Isle of Dogs.

It's about damn time Dr Malcolm returns, now if they could just get Alan and Tim back it'd be worth getting excited over.
