Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom has quite the undertaking ahead of it. Not only must it pay tribute to the legacy of the original Jurassic Park, but it also has the herculean task of having to live up to the financial success of 2015’s Jurassic World.
Can it do it? That remains to be seen, but it does seem like they’re setting it up for solid success. If you ask many hardcore Jurassic Park fans, they will likely tell you how much they hated Jurassic World due to its more shallow nature. With A Monster Calls director J.A. Bayona at the helm, it at least sounds like they’re positioning it to play off a lot better than its predecessor. Hopefully with that will come the financial success Universal definitely wants to see.
But just because the director has more experience in more thoughtful pieces, don’t think that they’ll be letting action take a back seat. Speaking with Empire, Bayona discusses some of the big set-pieces that will make up the new film.
“Fallen Kingdom stars with a massive action piece that feels like a James Bond prologue. And in the centre there is the biggest set-piece ever done for a Jurassic movie.”
While it wasn’t exactly confirmed, that set-piece could very well be that one volcano scene we had solid glimpses of in that first trailer. Given that producer Colin Trevorrow confirmed that the trailer only showed footage from the first hour or so of the movie, it seems like a safe bet.
