jeff goldblum thor ragnarok

The best thing about reading a Jeff Goldblum interview is that it’s so explicitly Goldblum that you can practically hear him talking and guffawing in your ear.

More so than the tidbits he teases about Thor: Ragnarok his first venture into superhero territory or the fact that he’s returning to the dinosaur franchise that he helped make famous as Dr. Ian Malcolm, are the hilarious Goldblum-esque quirks throughout this new interview. He calls the Jurassic Park series “dino-entertainment!” He rates directors on a scale of himself! It’s fortuitous that Ragnarok director Taika Waititi told Goldblum to be as Goldblum as possible in his portrayal of the Grandmaster. I hope he never changes.

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.

fast and furious jurassic park crossover

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 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.
