On the June 26, 2018 episode of /Film Daily, /Film editor-in-chief Peter Sciretta plays the audio from his interview with spoiler discussion with Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom producer Colin Trevorrow. In our conversation, Trevorrow explains the very ambitious ending of this film, the movie’s big twist, offers multiple teases as to what we might expect from Jurassic World 3, and much more. I have one bit of the interview that I will hold off for tomorrow, but the rest is here for your enjoyment. Major spoilers lie ahead.

fallen kingdom trailers

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom has a few big surprises. But perhaps the biggest surprise was the revelation that trailers and TV spots spoiled the ending of the film. This was ultimately a marketing department decision, and it definitely did not sit well with the Fallen Kingdom filmmakers.

Major spoilers for Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom follow.

Making of Jurassic World

A couple weeks ago, I met up with co-writer and producer Colin Trevorrow in an empty hotel lobby to talk about Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom. I had planned a traditional interview, but it being the night after the film’s Hollywood premiere, Trevorrow seemed excited to finally dive into spoilers. So my interview plans took a sharp right turn and I threw out most of my non-spoiler questions.

In our conversation, Trevorrow explains the very ambitious ending of this film, the movie’s big twist, offers multiple teases as to what we might expect from Jurassic World 3, and much more. I have one bit of the interview that I will hold off for tomorrow, but the rest is here for your enjoyment. And, of course, major spoilers lie ahead.

fallen kingdom spoiler review

(In our Spoiler Reviews, we take a deep dive into a new release and get to the heart of what makes it tick…and every story point is up for discussion. In this entry: Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom.)

Welcome to Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom. The fifth entry in the Jurassic Park franchise, and the follow-up to 2015’s Jurassic World, doubles-down on all the elements that made the previous film unpleasant, while adding a few twists and turns. Director J.A. Bayona does his absolute best to breathe life into this weak, rushed story. But a few stellar visuals aren’t enough to rescue this film from itself.

Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom Box Office

Jurassic World raked in a huge $208 million in the summer of 2015, landing one of the best opening weekends of all time (the only non-Disney distributed title in the top 10). That means Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom had a lot to live up to. But the sequel had a satisfying debut with the fourth biggest opening weekend of the year, and Universal’s second biggest debut ever, coming in behind only Jurassic World.

Get the full rundown of the Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom box office below. Read More »

Movies to Watch With Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom

We never got a Jaws 5. Not really. There’s the Italian knockoff Cruel Jaws that wanted people to think it was part of the franchise, but it’s a million nautical miles from counting. So we stalled out at Jaws: The Revenge. Way to go, humanity.

It’s easy to forget how wild it is that, decades after the initial adventure, the other Steven Spielberg franchise about prehistoric beasts transforming family dramas into horror films has made it to a fifth entry. Welcome…to Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom.

A little rundown: Spielberg made the first two, Captain America director Joe Johnston did the third, Colin Trevorrow rebooted the fourth film as the start of the modern trilogy, and now a man known equally for horror and big-scale disaster, J.A. Bayona, is up to bat.

Turns out that’s a good combination of genres to have. With a volcano about to blow on Isla Nublar, Owen (Chris Pratt) and Claire (Bryce Dallas Howard) head toward danger to save the dinosaurs from a second extinction.

Will they succeed? Will life find a way? What movies will you watch with it?
