jurassic world 2

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.

Jurassic Park Velociraptor Head

Hopefully you had a Christmas that resulted in getting a pile of goodies from your closest family and friends. But maybe you got some extra spending money sitting in your pocket after exchanging gifts with them and you’re looking for the best way to spend it. Chronicle Collectibles has you covered.

All dinosaurs are dead, and the closest you can get to having one is somehow digging one up from the Earth and piecing it together in skeletal form. Even then, it’ll probably end up going to some museum. But now you can get the next best thing in the form of a 1:1 scale Velociraptor head bust inspired by the dinosaur’s design from Jurassic Park.

Jurassic World 2 score

The busiest man in show business is obviously Dwayne Johnson, who seems to bounce from once project to another as if a tiny explosive implanted in his brain will explode if he’s not on a film set. But the second busiest man in show business is composer Michael Giacchino, who has become the go-to guy for seemingly every major film franchise on the planet. In the past two years alone, he has crafted the music for nine movies, not including a handful of shorts.

“Sleep? What is sleep to Michael Giacchino?!” he whispers to himself as he agrees to return for Jurassic World 2.

‘Jurassic World 2’ Will Have a Political Element

jurassic world 2 political

The Jurassic Park movies may be pure fiction, but it’s not hard to see how its lessons might apply to real life. In between delighting us with scenes of people running from dinosaurs and scenes of dinosaurs eating people, the films preach caution against scientific advancement without concern for consequences, as well as the thoughtless exploitation of animals. And according to Jurassic World 2 director J.A. Bayona, his movie will carry on in a similar vein, with a political element cutting through the adventure. Read More »

Jurassic World 2 Justice Smith (The Get Down)

Jurassic World 2 has been out looking for potential dino chow, and now it’s honed in on Justice Smith. The young star of Netflix’s The Get Down has just been cast in the J.A. Bayona-directed sequel, joining franchise newcomers Rafe Spall and Toby Jones and returning stars Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard.

Oh, and speaking of Howard, she’s got some good news coming her way, too. After her Claire spent most of Jurassic World sprinting around the jungle in stiletto heels, writer and producer Colin Trevorrow has promised she’ll get much more comfortable footwear in the next film.  Read More »

Jurassic World 2 BD Wong

Wong will be back as Dr. Henry Wu in the J.A. Bayona-directed sequel, which recently added new stars Toby Jones and Rafe SpallRead More »

Jurassic World sequel start date & Jurassic Park connection

The Jurassic Park franchise reopened its doors last year with Jurassic World, and while the theme park itself predictably proved to be another disaster, the film was a resounding success. Which, naturally, means the adventure will continue in future movies. Earlier this year, J.A. Bayona was announced as the new director for the sequel, and now he’s revealed shooting will get underway in March.

But perhaps the bigger question is what exactly that Jurassic Park sequel will entail. Jurassic World was technically a sequel to Jurassic Park, but also felt like a new start, like its own thing. And the next film? According to Bayona, it’ll serve as both Jurassic World 2 and Jurassic Park 5Read More »

Westworld and Jurassic Park Comparison

Westworld is one of the most discussed shows on the air now, and even after the first season comes to an end in a few weeks, we’ll still be talking about this show for months to come. Last night’s episode brought a major revelation (which will be discussed in greater detail later this morning with our usual Westworld coverage), but there are still endless questions to be answered.

However, if you find parts of Westworld feeling a little familiar, aside from the obvious due to the fact that this is a remake of a feature film of the same name, but you just can’t put your finger on it, a new video lays it out pretty simply. Westworld is Jurassic Park and vice versa, and since both stories were written by Michael Crichton, that makes perfect sense. Read More »
