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.

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 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 »

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 5. Read More »

The Jurassic World sequel just got some fresh meat. Toby Jones (above) and Rafe Spall are in talks to join Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard in the J.A. Bayona-directed film, which is on track to hit theaters in 2018. Read More »
Even though production on Jurassic World 2 is slated to begin early next year in order to meet the 2018 summer release date, we still know very little about the sequel, and that includes who will be among the cast. So far the only cast members confirmed for Jurassic World 2 (or Jurassic Park 5 depending on how you want to talk about the franchise) are Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard returning as Owen Grady and Claire Dearing respectively. But now we have word on another returning cast member from Jurassic World, or rather lack thereof.
New Girl star Jake Johnson has revealed that he won’t be coming back for Jurassic World 2, which will leave most of the joke cracking in the hands of Chris Pratt. Find out more below. Read More »
Even though Jurassic World 2 is a long ways off from hitting theaters, the anticipation is still high for the sequel. While Jurassic World treaded plenty of familiar territory with endless homages and references to the original Jurassic Park, this sequel should allow the story to head in an entirely different direction. Just recently writer/producer Colin Trevorrow revealed that Jurassic World 2 would be a parable for animal abuse, and now the sequel is getting compared to arguably the most revered sequel of all time by director J.A. Bayona.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
We won’t see Jurassic World 2 hit theaters until the summer of 2018, but with production slated to start sometime next year, little tidbits about the sequel are starting to surface here and there. We know that the film directed by J.A. Bayona will be the second chapter in a trilogy, and it will be suspenseful and scary, with more animatronics brought in this time. But we probably shouldn’t expect Sam Neill to return as Alan Grant.
However, Jurassic World director Colin Trevorrow, who is producing the sequel, did recently reveal one thing we can expect: Jurassic World 2 will be a parable for animal abuse and experimentation. Find out more below. Read More »
Universal Pictures has teamed up with LEGO to produce a 24-minute animated short film which acts as a prequel to Jurassic World. Titled LEGO Jurassic World: The Indominus Escape, the short film shows how the Indominus Rex came to be and what happened when it escaped.
That’s right, according to this new piece of Jurassic World canon, the movie wasn’t even the first time this genetically engineered dino escaped and apparently Chris Pratt‘s character rides the T-Rex. And of course, this being a LEGO production means we get all the fun, ridiculous and playful humor we’ve come to expect from the building block brand. Hit the jump to watch the Jurassic World short in its entirety.
