Chris Pratt in Jurassic World

With Jurassic World being the top grossing movie this year, Universal Pictures announcing that a sequel would follow did not come as a surprise. We know that film star Chris Pratt is already signed on for multiple films, as is Bryce Dallas Howard. However, Colin Trevorrow is unlikely to return considering he is busy directing Book of Henry, and will move on to directing Star Wars: Episode IX right after. But the filmmaker did talk about how the sequel would expand on the idea of weaponizing dinosaurs for military purposes.

While the sequel is continuing to be developed, it seems that we will be getting more than just one Jurassic World sequel, in fact we will be getting a trilogy. More on the story below.

Jurassic World director Colin Trevorrow

It was almost a banner year for Colin Trevorrow. Following his Sundance film festival hit Safety Not Guaranteed, he came out with his second major directorial effort, this summer’s Jurassic World. The fourth film of the franchise beat Marvel’s The Avengers‘s record for the number one weekend opening film at the worldwide box office. He was then recently named as director of Star Wars: Episode IX.

But now, the director finds himself in a bit of hot water after he attempted to address the issue of gender inequality in Hollywood. This has been an on-going issue, with many fighting for gender and racial diversity on the creative and performance front. In an attempt to explain this problem, Trevorrow has found himself on the receiving end of much criticism. After the jump see what he had to say, and how some are responding to his Twitter post.

D23 Expo 2015: Colin Trevorrow To Direct ‘Star Wars Episode IX’

Star Wars title

During Comic-Con in July, there was a report that Star Wars: Episode IX was to be directed by Colin Trevorrow. At the time, it was suspected that he would make an appearance to confirm the news during the panel at Disney’s D23 Expo on Saturday. No such news came, and some had thought that Disney and Lucasfilm would let Rian Johnson, or even J.J. Abrams return to direct. But now we can confirm that Trevorrow is indeed directing Star Wars: Episode IX.

The announcement was made at the D23 Expo earlier today. While Trevorrow wasn’t able to make an appearance to talk about the project itself — heck Rian Johnson is still writing Episode VIII as we speak — the Jurassic World director was able to share some of this thoughts about taking on such an iconic franchise.

Check out what he had to say below.

Jurassic World director Colin Trevorrow

The success of Jurassic World has opened the door for bold new possibilities for the franchise. Though director Colin Trevorrow confirms he won’t be making a return trip for a sequel, he will be writing it. However, Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard will return to reprise their roles. With the film still out in theaters, the director isn’t quite done making the press rounds to promote the film, and has even gone as far as talking about the sequel.

Universal has already dated Jurassic World 2 (or to some Jurassic Park 5) for a June 22nd, 2018 release, and while some may think it may be too early to go into the plot in great detail, Trevorrow is talking about how it may be more than just a film about “dinosaurs chasing people on an island.”

More on the story below.

‘Jurassic World’ Sequel To Roar Into Theaters In The Summer Of 2018

Jurassic World Chris Pratt

I had a feeling Jurassic World was going to be a huge hit, but never in my wildest dreams did I suspect it would surpass The Avengers to become the third highest-grossing movie of all time worldwide. $1.522 billion in global office? Amazing.

What doesn’t surprise me is that Universal Pictures has not only announced a sequel to World today, but they have also given it a release date of June 22, 2018. Colin Trevorrow, the indie filmmaker who brought a little life to the moribund franchise as World‘s director, will co-write the script with Derek Connolly. Together they wrote both the recent dino-tastic blockbuster and Trevorrow’s 2012 feature directorial debut, Safety Not Guaranteed.

Jurassic World director Colin Trevorrow

There has been a lot of big Star Wars news happening as of late. With Chris Miller and Phil Lord becoming the new directors of the just-confirmed untitled Young Han Solo Film, and Star Wars: The Force Awakens panel happening tonight at San Diego Comic-Con, you can surely expect a new big announcements since it has been widely reported that there won’t be any new footage shown from the film. (It’s likely that Disney would probably much rather show footage at their own D23 Expo than anywhere else.)

One of the early bits of news is more of a rumor, but it is a pretty big one. According to Heroic Hollywood, Colin Trevorrow, the director of Safety [Not Guaranteed] and the hugely successful Jurassic World, will direct Star Wars Episode IX. More on this below.

Chris Pratt in Jurassic World

There was no doubt that Jurassic World would be the number one film at the box office last weekend, and according to Box Office Mojo, it performed beyond experts’ expectations by earning $204 million domestically, and $511 million worldwide. So per the norm, Universal Pictures will green light sequels.

We know that director Colin Treverrow won’t be coming back for seconds, but he will be involved in some sort of capacity. But it looks like there is one person who is staying, and that person is star Chris Pratt.

‘Jurassic World’ Interview: Vincent D’Onofrio

Vincent D'Onofrio in Jurassic World

Set 22 years after the events of Jurassic Park, Colin Trevorrow‘s Jurassic World sees the dinosaur theme park fully restored and operational. But even with its success, the park needs to find ways to attract new visitors, and at InGen’s request, the science team created the Indominus Rex, a fearsome hybrid dinosaur that grows beyond InGen’s control. Now, it is up to Owen Grady (Chris Pratt), a raptor whisperer, Claire (Bryce Dallas Howard), the park’s CEO, and the island’s private security force to stop the monstrous creation before she can cause more damage.

In the film, Vincent D’Onofrio plays Vic Hoskins, the leader of Jurassic World’s private security force, who is also trying to utilize the park’s dinosaurs for military purposes. We had the opportunity to talk to D’Onofrio over the phone about the film, his character, and working with director Colin Trevorrow. We also had a chance to reminisce about working with Rick Baker on the set of Men in Black, and were reminded about Marvel’s code of silence.

Check out the full interview below.

Jurassic World Movie Review

Jurassic World
Director: Colin Trevorrow
Writers: Rick Jaffa, Amanda Silver, Derek Connolly, Colin Trevorrow
Cast: Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Vincent D’Onofrio, Ty Simpkins, Nick Robinson, Omar Sy, B. D. Wong, Irrfan Khan
Universal Pictures
Rated PG-13 | 124 Minutes
Release Date: June 12, 2015

“Your scientists were so preoccupied with whether or not they could that they didn’t stop to think if they should.”

That line of dialogue, delivered by Jeff Goldblum as Dr. Ian Malcolm, reveals one of the key themes of Steven Spielberg’s Jurassic Park. Just because humans find the capability to do something – like build an atomic bomb or clone a prehistoric predator – doesn’t mean they should, especially if hubris and greed motivate that act of discovery.

The “lunch debate” scene between Malcolm – a scientist – and venture capitalist John Hammond (Richard Attenborough) defines the central conflict of the 1993 film. It’s also a great metaphor for what Universal Pictures has done with their Jurassic Park franchise. Just because you can make more sequels, doesn’t mean you should. Some things are better left in the past.

Enter Jurassic World, the fourth entry in Universal’s dino-driven franchise. Co-written and directed by Colin Trevorrow (Safety Not Guaranteed), Jurassic World picks up 22 years after the events of the original film. Situated on Isla Nublar, the island from the original film, Jurassic World is a fully operational, state-of-the-art theme park with astonishing biological attractions. Dinosaurs. We’re talking about freaking dinosaurs here, guys.

The luxury resort has been a tourist destination for years, with tens of thousands of guests traveling from all over the world to see these living, breathing prehistoric creatures up close. Kids ride baby Triceratops in a petting zoo while crowds cheer as the massive Mosasaurus leaps from a SeaWorld-style performance pool to devour a great white shark suspended in mid-air.
