In what may just be the least surprising film news of the week, Jurassic World will be getting a sequel and Universal pictures would be pretty silly to not be doing this, capitalizing on the huge success of the film, which is now the third highest grossing movie of all time and the most successful film in the Jurassic franchise. Colin Trevorrow will help pen the screenplay although he won’t be directing it.
My immediate thought goes to the sequel potentially not being able to live up to the standard of Jurassic World, let alone Jurassic Park, it’s funny how we judge movies aint it. Another thought I had on hearing this news is of Universal franchising the hell out of the new Jurassic continuity that it has created, will we see spin offs, a solo movie for the T-Rex with no actual human characters in it? Well hopefully not, but money does talk and it often says stupid things to movie studios, apparently.
Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard will reprise their roles and by the time of its release Pratt will be a household name and a big blockbuster draw for audiences I think, so it should be interesting to see how his career will progress in the coming years.
Anyway the film is on the way and we’ll have to wait and see what’s next in store for the Jurassic franchise.
