“Jurassic World” is taking the world by storm as it proudly stands as the third highest grossing movie of all time with over $1.522 billion. It shouldn’t come as a surprise to see that Universal Pictures and Amblin Entertainment has officially announced that “Jurassic World 2” is set for release in on June 22, 2018. The latest installment was appreciated by fans of the franchise and kids that have never experienced the awesomeness of dinosaurs in 3D, or at least some of it in 3D in my humble opinion.
Franchise veteran Steven Spielberg and Producer Frank Marshall will take charge of the sequel, and “Jurassic World” director, Colin Trevorrow will team up with Derek Connolly to pen the script. Trevorrow will not return behind the lens as helmer, saying that “I would be involved in some way, but not as director”. The studio is still head hunting for a suitable director. The leading stars of the movie, Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard will reprise their roles as Owen Grady and Claire Dearing respectively.
Where to now? In all honesty, “Jurassic World” was a good wrap up movie for the franchise considering the storyline is stretching over decades. The hybrid dinosaur with its heightened senses and Chris Prat with his Alpha training skills was just enough to push the franchise closer to the edge of all things ridiculous. Trevorrow once hinted that the sequel might have something in common with the previous movies.
“There are themes and ideas in here that we’re setting up, such as the coexistence of these animals on the planet with humans. In the same way that we exist with animals now. And imagine a world where just like, you know, ‘don’t go into that jungle, there’s tigers in there.’ They’re gonna eat you. Just replace that with raptors,”
Mmmmmm…..maybe it is time to call it a day, or are you guys really keen to see a sequel with a “Flintstones” feel to it?
