Jurassic World was a huge hit, both for the Millennials and for the people that saw Jurassic Park when it first came out in the theaters. There is something compelling about a world of gigantic ravenous dinosaurs that could devour you in one bite and demolish entire cities. But hey, is that not what most mega blockbusters are these days anyways — the threat of total annihilation? Jurassic World 2 is sure to follow the trend, but the first picture shared today by Colin Trevorrow, who directed the first installment and co-wrote part two along with Derek Connolly, may tell a different story. Take a look!
What we see here appears to be a gigantic skull of a Triceratops, and at least one Velociraptor (front-left) along with some other dinosaurs, that could possibly be more of the combined genetic mutant versions they were working on in the first installment. This is all set in either an extravagant museum, or more likely a private residence similar to the office Professor Hammond owned in during Jurassic Park: The Lost World. Notably missing is the T-Rex. Has the government finally had enough and decided to simply attempt to eliminate all the dinosaurs?
In addition, there is no word yet on who this girl in the picture is, or what role she may play.
We recently reported that filming set to begin and about Bryce Dallas Howard’s eye condition, which gave her trouble with bright lights. I speculated this may have been a delay in filming, but as long as she is feeling better I am happy for her. She will return with Chris Pratt to reprise their roles, and after being saved by the dinos in Jurassic World, there is always a possibility that they become the remaining “dinosaur pals” protectors, hiding them away from mass government extinction.
Jurassic World 2 is set to be released June 22, 2018, and will directed by J.A. Bayona and feature Chris Pratt as Owen, Bryce Dallas Howard as Claire, BD Wong as Dr. Henry Wu, and will also have Toby Jones (Sherlock – he was fantastic), Ted Levine (Silence of the Lambs – Jame Gumb, enough said), and James Cromwell (American Horror Story, Boardwalk Empire, The Green Mile) in yet to be named roles.
Will this sequel live up to Jurassic World, or will any of them be as good as the first Jurassic Park? What do you think the plot of this movie could be? Do you think we could get the Jame Gumb voice again from Levine? Speak out America!
