ian malcolm in jurassic world 2

This weekend has not been kind to Colin Trevorrow, whose passion project The Book of Henry was lambasted by critics and put the goodwill surrounding him as the choice to direct Star Wars: Episode 9 at risk.

But people still kinda liked Jurassic World, so the sequel that he co-wrote and produced will be anticipated nonetheless. A major part of that anticipation can be credited to the return of Jeff Goldblum as chaos theory mathematician Dr. Ian Malcolm, and Trevorrow recently discussed what fans can expect in that department.

Find out more about Jeff Goldblum in Jurassic World 2 below.

I know Jurassic World has a lot of haters, but I’m holding out hope that director J.A. Bayona will be able to deliver a sequel that improves on its predecessor. Jurassic World 2 already has one element that the previous movie didn’t: the one and only Jeff Goldblum returning as Dr. Ian Malcolm. But this movie will also feature something no other movie in the franchise has done before: an underwater action scene set in a submarine. Read what we know about the Jurassic World 2 underwater scene below.

jurassic world 2 photo

Just like how you need to break a few eggs to make an omelet, Colin Trevorrow knows you need to smuggle out a few dinosaur eggs to make a sequel.

In a cryptic new photo from Jurassic World 2, Trevorrow — who yields the director’s chair this time around to A Monster CallsJ. A. Bayona — teases a picture of dinosaur eggs in an incubator waiting to hatch, in an eerie parallel to the classic scene in the lab from the original Jurassic Park.

Jurassic World 2 production, plot details

The question of why people in the Jurassic Park universe keep returning to the idea of resurrecting dinosaurs is a good one, but the question of why Universal keeps coming back to the Jurassic Park franchise has an obvious answer: audiences love these films. The studio was already planting the seeds for Jurassic World 2 before Jurassic World even opened, and now those plans are starting to come to fruition.

Producer Frank Marshall seems to have announced the start of production on Jurassic World 2, which is expected to open in summer 2018. That means we’ve got plenty of time to keep speculating about what the film will actually be about… and right on time, a couple of clues have come up to point the way.

j.a. bayona interview

J.A. Bayona‘s latest film packs a heavy punch. Bayona’s adaptation of author and screenwriter Patrick Ness‘ novel is a pure tearjerker, a movie that mixes the grand with the intimate. The film follows a young boy (Lewis MacDougall) struggling with his mother’s terminal illness. In need of help, he calls upon a monster (Liam Neeson), a talking tree that promises to tell Conor three stories as long as the boy reveals his deepest, darkest secret.

A Monster Calls deals heavily with the power of storytelling. After making only three films, Bayona has established himself as a very emotional storyteller. “Cold” is not a word that applies to the visual splendor of his work. We recently interviewed the filmmaker for his latest drama, which was originally based on an idea by the late author, Siobhan Dowd. Bayona discussed with us the music on set, King Kong, the silent moments in A Monster Calls, and his reaction to seeing Jurassic Park for the first time.

Below, read our J.A. Bayona interview.

Director J.A. Bayona is an inspired choice to take on the sequel to Colin Trevorrow’s Jurassic World, having revealed an eye for crafting sheer terror with The Orphanage and the ability to create astonishing technical set pieces with The Impossible. His latest movie, A Monster Calls, is very much a crowdpleaser…or whatever you’d call a movie whose cost of admission should come with a package of tissues.

While we still don’t know too much about what he plans to do with the second film in the planned Jurassic World trilogy, Bayona is now saying that Jurassic World 2 will be a bigger film than its predecessor. More importantly, he breaks out the “f” word.
