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 Calls‘ J. 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.

The Fate of the Furious, the latest high octane goof-fest from the Fast and the Furious series, comes rip-roaring into theaters this weekend. What started as a fairly dull Point Break knock-off with street racing instead of surfing somehow blossomed into a delightful, silly, universally embraced franchise. As the series unveils its eighth entry, one question remains: where does Dominic Toretto and his family go from here?
Some would say the logical (or perhaps illogical) next step is space, the final frontier. Even Fate of the Furious screenwriter Chris Morgan acknowledged as much recently, and didn’t completely shoot down the idea, saying, “Look, I get all versions of that question. I get, ‘Are you going to space?,’ and, ‘Please, God, tell me you’re not going to space because you’ll lose me if you do.’ The only way I’d go to space is if I had something so good.”
I submit, however, that the Furious franchise need not slip the surly bonds of earth, but rather stay rooted to terra firma. And then bring in some dinosaurs.

Jurassic Park has some of the most memorable action adventure sequences ever put to film. From the tyrannosaurus rex attack to the velociraptor pursuit in the kitchen, the movie is filled with some extremely thrilling sequences. But there was one more action sequence that we never got to see in the final cut of the movie.
A batch of Jurassic Park storyboards recently surfaced online that show there was once a plan for quite a different action sequence for the film’s finale. Originally, there was a sequence planned that involved a helicopter rescue with the tyrannosaurus rex nearly stopping the chopper from getting off the island.
Check out the storyboards for the Jurassic Park alternate ending below. Read More »

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.

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.

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.
