People have always been fascinated with dinosaurs. Nothing capitalized on this better than Jurassic Park. The great story-line accompanied by ground breaking special effects proved to be a blockbuster combination.
The Jurassic Park series gave us 3 movies, countless merchandise, video games, and a theme park attraction. The dino craze seemed to dwindle in the early 2000’s. The new generation had not been exposed to the Jurassic Park phenomenon. That was until 2015 when Jurassic World was released in theaters.
Jurassic World followed the same basic formula as Jurassic Park. They build a big zoo full of “extinct” dinosaurs. Lots of people visit the zoo. Big bad dinosaurs manage to get out and kill people. Heroes perform courageous acts to contain dinosaur threat. The difference this time is they improved the special effects…. A LOT!
They recently announced they will be filming Jurassic World 2. Chris Pratt, BD Wong, and Bryce Dallas Howard will be reprising their roles. The big announcement is they are bringing back the Chaos Theory man himself, Jeff Goldblum. There are also rumors that Jurassic Park alumni Sam Neill and Laura Dern may be returning as Grant and Ellie.
There are plenty of rumors about the proposed plot for Jurassic World 2. If they can come up with a believable story-line to go with the all-star cast, they will have another huge movie on their list.
Mark your calendars for June 22, 2018. I have a feeling you won’t want to miss this one.
