Howdy ladies and gentlemen, it has been a good while nice I posted news on this blog for a while and to be fair there’s a lot of news that’s been going down, but nothing that makes me want to blog about it… Until now. The following information comes from superherohype:
“Next summer, Universal Pictures will be bringing us the fourth entry in the fan favorite “Jurassic Park” franchise with Colin Trevorrow’s Jurassic World, and they’re not planning on stopping there. Speaking with Empire, Trevorrow says the topic of sequels to the 2015 release is something they’ve already been talking about, saying:
“We definitely talked about [sequels] a lot. We wanted to create something that would be a little bit less arbitrary and episodic, and something that could potentially arc into a series that would feel like a complete story.”
Even though we know very little about the new characters that we’ll be seeing in Jurassic World, Trevorrow mentioned one of them in particular who the focus could potentially be on, X-Men: Days of Future Past star Omar Sy.
“He’s essentially Chris Pratt’s best friend. They work together and have some pretty cool action scenes together. I wanted to create a relationship there that could be memorable and potentially carry on to future films.”
Trevorrow also laid out a very cryptic teaser for the upcoming film, which will return to Isla Nublar, the island from the first film.
“It’s about alpha dominance and the fact that humans have been the alpha species for a very long time, and so now we’ve brought back another that happened to be the alpha species during its time, and we have to co-exist, so what is that relationship?”
The highly-anticipated sequel also stars Bryce Dallas Howard, Ty Simpkins, Jake Johnson, Nick Robinson, Irrfan Khan, Vincent D’Onofrio, BD Wong, Judy Greer, Katie McGrath and Lauren Lapkus.
It will be directed by Trevorrow from a draft of the screenplay he wrote with Derek Connolly. Steven Spielberg, Frank Marshall and Pat Crowley are producing. Jurassic World is set for released on June 12, 2015.“
Okay well this sounds pretty interesting and I’m seeing a lot of potential in Trevorrow’s words. In terms of creating a story arc for this new film with the chance of sequels after this one is a good call, I mean no film that’s part of a massive franchise like this doesn’t plan for sequels these days. The filmmakers and studios are always planning ahead and are all about that money, so it is unsurprising that Jurassic World is not the only film on the production line here, and I would like to think that there would be more if this new one works. As for Trevorrow’s comment on the relationship between Chris Pratt and Omar Sy, I like it. So we know that these two will have a lot of interaction and action scenes, and I LOVE action scenes lol. I’m getting Alan Grant and Ian Malcolm vibes from the director and while I don’t think we’ll ever be able to re-create that kind of banter and chemistry again like the awesomeness that was Sam Neil and Jeff Goldblum, I feel like it would also be a great opportunity to try and get another kind of on-screen relationships again. And lastly hearing about this alpha species has me intrigued, I am super curious to know what is, what is looks like and how it’ll attack the humans. Also will be more hardcore than the classic T-Rex, my favourite dinosaur ever? I want to know! 😄
