Is life about to find a way again? That appears to be the case for Jurassic World 2, according to some newly revealed marketing materials for the movie. One of the new posters for the highly-anticipated sequel that has surfaced online reveals that the classic tagline, "Life finds a way," may have a part to play in the movie.
Universal has a display set up at the Licensing Expo, and they are going all in on director J.A. Bayona's Jurassic World 2. The studio has a massive section of the exhibitor floor dedicated to the next installment of the Jurassic Park franchise, which gives us a look at some of the stuff that may be appearing in the movie. One of the most interesting things on display is a banner that features the classic logo with the June 22, 2018, release date plastered over it, with the rest of the banner featuring the line, »
If you’re not following Juan Antonio Bayona on Twitter, you really should be.
Ever since the filmmaker took the reins on Jurassic World 2 – replacing the outgoing Colin Trevorrow (Star Wars: Episode IX) in the process – Bayona’s Twitter feed has transformed into a steady stream of pictures and behind-the-scenes pictures for Universal’s 2018 sequel.
Still incubating in the bowels of development, late last month we learned that Jeff Goldblum had signed on to reprise the role of Dr. Ian Malcolm (eek!), and the acting veteran is relishing the thought of stepping foot on Isla Nublar once more – assuming J.A. Bayona’s follow-up ventures back to where it all began, of course.
One thing’s for sure: Jurassic World 2 has stomped past the half-way point in development. Per Twitter, Bayona posted a close-up of what appears to be John Hammond’s iconic amber cane – either that, or a very dirty light bulb. »

Jurassic World was an incredibly successful movie that breathed new life into the Jurassic Park franchise, which has allowed for Jurassic World 2 to happen. Even though no official plot details have been released for the movie yet, there are a lot of things we are hearing and seeing that make it seem like this could be a great entry in the series. Now, thanks to director J.A. Bayona and producer/writer Colin Trevorrow, we have a couple of new set photos from Jurassic World 2 to further tease and excite fans about the upcoming sequel.
The first new Jurassic World 2 set photo was shared by Colin Trevorrow, who directed the first Jurassic World but is taking a slight step back, co-writing and producing the sequel. Recently, it was revealed that Jeff Goldblum is set to return as Dr. Ian Malcolm, the character he first brought to life in Jurassic Park, in »
John Hammond is a legend in the fictional dinosaur world. He’s the vision behind Jurassic Park. He’s the reason why scientists were able to extra the DNA from a dinosaur to genetically engineer new ones. He’s also the reason people’s arms were ripped off, why dinosaurs inhabited other test islands, and even the reason why they tried (and failed) all over again with a Jurassic World. And for a guy who touted sparing no expense during multiple points in the movie, here are some things one redditor points out that says the exact opposite. He sent his grandkids into a

James Cromwell’s character in the upcoming Jurassic World 2 has an interesting link to a key character from the original Jurassic Park. Sitting down with Larry King, he reveals that his character, Benjamin Lockwood, has a through-line all the way back to the 1993 original:
“The character Richard Attenborough played (John Hammond), I’m his partner, Benjamin Lockwood. We developed the technology of being able to clone the genes. And so I’m trying to deal with the blowback from what we have done.”
The sequel to 2015’s Jurassic World is getting very interesting. Recently, we found out that the legendary Jeff Goldblum is returning as the iconic Dr. Ian Malcolm, and now we are starting to see even more connections to the original. It seems that Jurassic World 2 is closely tied to the original Jurassic Park: Chris Pratt has even revealed that the sequel will be darker, and scarier. »

Academy Award nominee James Cromwell has been gracing screens both big and small for over 50 years. His impressive career has spanned genre and medium, as much as it has spanned independent projects and Hollywood blockbusters. So, it is perhaps a logical step to include him in the cast of Jurassic World 2, in a role that sounds like it essentially replaces the story function filled by the late Richard Attenborough within the franchise narrative – that of ‘The Man With Whom The Buck Stops.’
There is precedent within the Jurassic Park series for characters from the first instalment to reappear. Jeff Goldblum, as Ian Malcolm, starred in the second film – The Lost World: Jurassic Park – and returns for Jurassic World 2. Sam Neill and Laura Dern, as Drs. Alan Grant and Ellie Sattler, respectively – returned for Jurassic Park III. Richard Attenborough, who played billionaire, theme-park-visionary John Hammond, passed away in 2014 – so it seems »

Yesterday it was revealed that Jeff Goldblum has joined the cast of Jurassic World 2 and now we have new information about another tie to Steven Spielberg's Jurassic Park. Director J.A. Boyana and star Chris Pratt have both previously stated that the sequel will be much darker than Jurassic World and a little more like the first Jurassic Park. As previously reported, Goldblum will reprise his character of Dr. Ian Malcolm in Jurassic World 2 and the creepy Dilophosaurus as well as the T-Rex will also be returning. The sequel is filming now, so not much is known about specific plot points, but today we have a new piece of information that connects Jurassic World 2 to Jurassic Park.
In an interview with Larry King Now, James Cromwell elaborated about his role as Benjamin Lockwood in the film. Cromwell also sheds some more light on his character's relationship with John Hammond, »
Thanks to a cartoon DNA strand, the original Jurassic Park makes it clear that Richard Attenborough’s John Hammond is the guy who the entire project that made cloning dinosaurs possible, but it sounds like Jurassic World 2 might be throwing a new wrinkle into that backstory. As reported by Looper, James Cromwell stopped by Larry King Now this week and not only confirmed that he’s in Jurassic World 2, but also that he’s playing a character who could be hugely important to the core mythology of the series. He says that he’s playing a guy named Benjamin Lockwood, who was John Hammond’s “partner” back in the day and even helped him develop the dinosaur cloning technology that made Jurassic Park possible.

J.A. Bayona is directing the next installment. Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard are returning for the sequel to the 2015 blockbuster “Jurassic World.” The sequel also stars Justice Smith, James Cromwell, and Toby Jones.
Goldblum co-starred in 1993’s “Jurassic Park” and in 1997’s “The Lost World: Jurassic Park,” but was absent from “Jurassic World.” He played the quick-witted mathematician Ian Malcolm, who managed to survive in both films.
At one point in “Jurassic Park,” he’s told by Richard Attenborough’s John Hammond, “All major theme parks have delays. When they opened Disneyland in 1956, nothing worked!” Goldblum responded, “Yeah, but, John, if the Pirates of the Caribbean breaks down, the pirates don’t eat the tourists.”

Jurassic World 2 only began filming earlier this month and so naturally the project is still shrouded in mystery. So here's a quick recap of what we know for sure: - Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard are returning. - New cast members include Justice Smith, Toby Jones, Rafe Spall, Danielle Pineda, and Geraldine Chaplin. - It will have more of a direct connection to Jurassic Park than even Jurassic World did. That list bit is a bit curious considering Colin Trevorrow's movie had some very obvious Jurassic Park callbacks, but perhaps what new director J.A. Bayona meant with his quote from last fall is that JW2 will more directly deal with the legacy of Jurassic Park creator John Hammond. At least we think that may be the implication, as Bayona just tweeted out the...

The Future is not fixed!! (me wishing I could back to the Us Primaries and get Bernie Sanders elected)
Anyways, We’re back! The Flash picks up right where it left off giving us a brooding (and shirtless) Barry Allen unable to sleep, unable to shake the horrid nightmares he has reoccurring watching Iris’ death four months from now. She picks up on this, as any caring gf would and instead of going the route most Arrowverse shows go and holding it back until it just hurts your friends enough and sows just enough distrust amongst them, he tells her. About mid-episode and explains it all to the team, well except Joe, because someone always has to be left out to keep the drama in! It’s a scene that shakes you, watching Candice Patton take in what Barry is saying, »
