‘Jurassic World’ Eats Its Way To $1 Billion Mark, Colin Trevorrow Who Will Still Write Sequel Promises No More Locked-Up Dinosaurs!
A second installment of the “Jurassic World” would come as no surprise especially that the monster movie bagged another feat to its first-rate performance. Read on for more details.
Universal released “Jurassic World” last May 2015 and its rampage on the box office has not diminished. A report from Variety affirms that the $150 million budgeted movie has now cut across the $1 billion landmark. It was after the film crushed its competition with a film gross of $524 million during its opening weekend.
“Jurassic World” positioned itself to be the fourth-biggest movie alongside “Titanic” (1.528 billion) and “Avatar” (2.027 billion) both coming from Fox and “Furious 7” (1.162 billion) from Universal.
Director Colin Trevorrow who announced earlier that he won’t be behind the camera for the follow-up, gave more than just his two cents in an interview with Movie Pilot about the sequel which he will still be co-writing.
With the recent theme park left in shambles, the 38-year-old director hinted that their screenplay in some degree will no longer be bound by a dinosaurs-on-the-loose-inside-a-theme-park concept.
“I feel like the idea that this isn’t always going to be limited to theme parks, and there are applications for this science that reach far beyond entertainment,” Trevorrow explained.
The director added that such an idea has long wheedled out, that is why they will be concentrating on a spanking new theme which will be an open world setting.
If memory serves us right a character from the previous “Jurassic World,” Dr. Henry Wu portrayed by BD Wong managed to make his way out of the park before things went chaotic. The scientist shrewdly had brought with him a suitcase jam-packed with dinosaur embryos along with important research documents.
This tight spot would eventually work well as a springboard to a thrilling story arc as “open source” will imply that any private or public institution can now farm their own dinosaurs outside of the confines of InGen as further explained by Trevorrow. The core of the matter would be that such amass-production will mean competition between corporations for dinosaur-breeding beyond entertainment objectives e.g. medicine, agriculture, and war.
The still untitled sequel to be released in June 2018 will be returning with Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard with Steven Spielberg executively producing.
