Jurassic World 2 Set Photos Arrive as Jeff Goldblum Begins Shooting

10 May 2017 3:07 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

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 »

Jeff Goldblum discusses Ian Malcolm return in Jurassic World 2

9 May 2017 8:17 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

One of the big reasons people have to look forward to Jurassic World 2 is to see the return of Jeff Goldblum’s fan-favourite character Dr. Ian Malcolm from the original Jurassic Park.

Though Dr. Malcolm was not seen in Jurassic World, he was subtly referenced with one the character’s having Malcom’s book, ‘God Creates Dinosaurs’, on their desk. Now we’ll be able to see him once again and Goldblum spoke to Entertainment Weekly about what fans can expect from Malcolm and what its like returning to the Jurassic Park franchise.

“Off I go in a few weeks to London, where they’ve been hard at work, and I’ll try to contribute something to the plate of dino-entertainment. I like my character. I think my character is a saucy, sassy man of some integrity and deep thinking. And of course, that whole world continues to be popular, »

Nothing was announced about how he will fit into the story, or how large his role will be, but the actor himself has finally spoken about his return to the franchise in a new interview. When asked what he's looking forward to in returning to the dinosaur franchise, the actor explained that he will be heading to London to shoot his scenes in just a few weeks. Here's what he had to say about the production.

James Cromwell’s character in Jurassic World 2 has an important connection to the original Jurassic Park

28 April 2017 12:07 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

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 ParkChris Pratt has even revealed that the sequel will be darker, and scarier. »

A Heat Prequel Is Coming from Michael Mann, But It's Not What You Think

27 April 2017 4:36 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

It's been over two decades since director Michael Mann unleashed his action-packed classic Heat onto the world, which still has legions of devoted fans to this day. While there have never been any official plans for a sequel, the director will now revisit this iconic crime saga in a prequel novel he is writing with celebrated crime author Reed Farrel Coleman. The novel is expected to be published next year under the filmmaker's Michael Mann Books imprint at William Morrow/HarperCollins.

Deadline reports that this book, which doesn't have a title at this time, will provide an origin story for all of the L.A.-based criminals and law enforcement officers that are featured in the 1995 movie. This book will delve into how Neil McCauley (Robert De Niro) met Chris Shiherlis (Val Kilmer), Michael Cherrito (Tom Sizemore) and Trejo (Danny Trejo) in Folsom Prison, and formed his crew. This story will also feature McCauley's mentor, »

Jurassic World sequel will feature a submarine/underwater sequence

27 April 2017 12:04 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The sequel to Jurassic World is set to include an action orientated underwater sequence.

With the joyous news that fan favourite actor Jeff Goldblum will be returning to the series for Jurassic World 2, word has now arrived that the movie will include an underwater action scene – with a Submarine!

Actor Kevin Lane spoke to Management in Stage and Film about his role in the picture which will seem him portray a submarine pilot.

“I read for two parts, and ended up getting the role of ‘submarine pilot’, which was the role I wanted as it is quite an epic scene. So I should have a nice cinematic moment on screen in a massive studio film. Filming starts in May [so] hopefully I’ll be in one of their amazing contraptions, pretending that there’s dinosaurs around me. I’ve never worked with CGI before so it’s fun and challenging. But »

'Lambs' Actor Ted Levine Remembers Jonathan Demme's Directing Style

27 April 2017 8:37 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

Silence of the Lambs may be one of the darkest, most twisted movies ever made, but Buffalo Bill villain Ted Levine remembers the set as being one of the most enjoyable he's been on during a shoot thanks to one man: Jonathan Demme.

"He was one of the most intensely sweet men I have known," Levine told The Hollywood Reporter in an interview on Thursday. "He was like an 11-year-old kid. He was always really excited about what he was doing."

The Oscar-winning director died on Wednesday. He was 73.

Jeff Goldblum Is Back for Jurassic World 2

26 April 2017 10:42 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Life has, uh, found a way to make Jurassic Park fans very happy. Jurassic World 2 is currently filming and, if you weren't already excited about the next installment in the franchise, you probably should be. Why, may you ask? Well, because Jeff Goldblum is officially returning in Jurassic World 2 as Dr. Ian Malcolm.

The Hollywood Reporter has broke the news that Universal has officially managed to get Jeff Goldblum to reprise his iconic role as Dr. Ian Malcolm in the upcoming Jurassic World sequel, which is set for release next summer. Unfortunately, their report wasn't able to confirm anything in the way of how large his role will be or how exactly he will factor into the story of Jurassic World 2, but having him back will definitely help get butts in seats. Jurassic World did exceedingly well at the box office but, outside of B.D. Wong as Dr. Henry Wu, »

There’s a Familiar Face Returning to ‘Jurassic World 2’

26 April 2017 8:57 AM, PDT | | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

If you weren’t excited before…

A few years ago when it was announced that we were being invited back into the world of Jurassic Park, the big question on everyone’s mind was, “how will this new film connect to the original trilogy?” There were theories that Chris Pratt’s character was a grown version of a little boy seen in the first film — a theory Pratt himself recently shot down — but aside from assurances by the producers that this would be a continuation and not a full-on reboot, and a few lines of dialogue here and there, Jurassic World stands on its own, dependent on its own characters to propel the film. But now, with Jurassic World 2 in production for director J.A. Bayona, there’s word that we’re getting an honest to goodness, verifiable link to the original films, via perhaps the most beloved character in the franchise: Jeff Goldblum’s Dr. Ian Malcolm »

Jeff Goldblum to Appear in Jurassic World Sequel

25 April 2017 7:54 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

"Must go faster!" A familiar face from the original Jurassic Park trilogy will appear in Jurassic World 2, as THR reveals that Jeff Goldblum has been cast in the sequel.

According to THR, Jeff Goldblum will play a role in Jurassic World 2, the fifth film in the franchise, but it hasn't been confirmed what that role will be.

There are surely many fans who would love to see Goldblum play chaos theorist and stylish mathematician Ian Malcolm, the character from Michael Crichton's novel that he brought to life so memorably in Steven Spielberg's Jurassic Park and its sequel, The Lost World: Jurassic Park. Goldblum's infinitely quotable take on Malcolm did not appear in Jurassic Park III, which instead featured the return of Sam Neill as Dr. Alan Grant and Laura Dern as Ellie.

Jeff Goldblum to Return for ‘Jurassic World’ Sequel

25 April 2017 7:23 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Jeff Goldblum is coming back to the world of dinosaurs and will appear in Universal-Amblin Entertainment’s next “Jurassic World” film.

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.”

Colin Trevorrow, who directed “Jurassic World,” wrote the script for the sequel with Derek Connolly. »

Jurassic World 2 Has an Epic Submarine Vs. Dinosaur Action Scene

25 April 2017 6:49 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Without knowing too many specific plot details in regards to Jurassic World 2, quite a few promises have been made about what's in the movie. At one point it was said this sequel will feature more than just dinosaurs chasing people around on an island. Now, according to one of the new cast members, that is absolutely true. Because some dinosaurs are going to be chasing people in submarines underwater.

The news comes from new cast member Kevin Layne, who's been recruited to play a submarine pilot in Jurassic World 2. The actor was interviewed by Mstf Management and provided some Jurassic details on the insane sounding scene in question. Here is what he had to say about it.

Jurassic World 2 Set Photo Reveals New Dinosaur

21 April 2017 2:15 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Jurassic World 2 is currently filming in London, with some filming scheduled to take place in Hawaii later on in production. According to producer Frank Marshall, the movie is at the halfway point, at least in terms of shooting, and to honor the occasion, he has shared a brand new, behind-the-scenes photo from the set. And it looks like there is going to be at least one, brand new dinosaur added to the Jurassic Park franchise that will appear on screen Jurassic World 2.

This latest set photo from Frank Marshall was posted to his Twitter account and shows several of the producer's chairs, which are pretty uninteresting on their own. But it is what we can see in the background of the photo that should have Jurassic Park fans pretty excited. While not totally clear what dinosaur it is, there is a full body, practical dinosaur on the set, which is »

Jurassic World 2 Is Darker and Scarier Says Chris Pratt

19 April 2017 10:32 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Since there was such a long break between Jurassic Park III and Jurassic World, 14 years to be exact, it feels like it hasn't been that long since we had a new Jurassic Park movie to enjoy. Fortunately for those who enjoyed the recent return to Isla Nublar, we won't have to wait all that much longer to see some more dinosaur action, since Jurassic World 2 is coming out next summer. And according to Chris Pratt, we can expect a darker, scarier, unexpected experience.

The actor is currently making the press rounds for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 and he couldn't avoid talking a little bit about Jurassic World 2. While speaking to Screen Rant, Chris Pratt did offer a few vague terms about what we can expect from the highly-anticipated sequel, though he couldn't say anything overly specific about the movie. Here is how he explains his time on set so far. »

Chris Pratt says Jurassic World 2 is scarier, darker, and unexpected

19 April 2017 5:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

As all corners of the universe gear up for the highly anticipated next entry in the McU, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Chris Pratt has been doing media rounds to promote the blockbuster and has naturally found himself fielding questions on the other mega-popular franchise he is part of, and specifically the upcoming sequel Jurassic World 2.

“[J.A. Bayona is a] remarkable filmmaker,” he told ScreenRant. “If you haven’t seen The Impossible or A Monster Calls, I mean he’s really visually masterful. Deep emotions and suspense. I think it’s going to be a scarier version. A little bit darker and will continue to expand and carry the story forward in a way that is really unexpected and you wouldn’t have imagined.”

Jurassic World 2 Set Photo Harkens Back To A Classic

17 April 2017 11:35 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

“Life…finds a way.” To commemorate Easter Sunday, Jurassic World 2 director Juan Antonio Bayona shared a very different kind of egg – think prehistoric, not chocolate.

Posted to Twitter, the picture harkens back to a classic (read: Steven Spielberg’s 1993 classic) in that it features more than half a dozen eggs resting in a cutting-edge incubator. It’s impossible to determine the nature of the dino eggs based on this photo alone, but judging by their size, they do appear awfully similar to those Velociraptor eggs that cropped up in the original Jurassic Park, leading to Jeff Goldblum’s Ian Malcolm uttering the famous line: “Life…finds a way.”

The technology within Universal’s blockbuster franchise has come an awful long way since – and we’re not just referring to the CGI on display. As evidenced in Colin Trevorrow’s Jurassic World, a franchise revival that reached $1.6 billion at the international box office, »
