Jurassic World 2 Begins Shooting, First Set Photo Arrives

24 February 2017 9:33 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Get ready for some serious (possibly weaponized) dinosaur action, because Jurassic World 2 is officially underway. Yesterday, crews were very busy in Slough, England setting up cameras and readying for the tremendous undertaking that is making a Jurassic Park movie. Today officially makes the first day of filming on Jurassic World 2, which was confirmed by Bryce Dallas Howard in a tweet that also included a brand new set photo.

The actress took to Twitter in order to declare that filming has begun on Jurassic World 2 by posting a photo from the set, which unfortunately didn't reveal too much. As far as set photos go, it is pretty unexciting, since it is just a picture of a chair with her character Claire's name on it. Even though the actual content of the photo isn't necessarily exciting and doesn't feature any dinosaur action, the knowledge that cameras are rolling on the next installment »

What Are the Dinosaurs Really Being Used for in Jurassic World 2?

20 February 2017 4:04 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

With production just about to get underway on Jurassic World 2, we are eagerly awaiting some sort of official announcement in terms of what to expect from the sequel plot wise. So far, Universal Pictures and the creative team behind the sequel have been tight-lipped when it comes to the details. However, it looks like some story elements for the Jurassic World sequel may have found their way online. And if they are legitimate, this promises to be the most insane entry in the franchise to date.

It must be noted that this information is not coming directly from the studio, so it should be taken as rumor for now. That said, a production listing for Jurassic World 2 was recently uncovered on My Entertainment World that provides a new logline for the movie. The information isn't necessarily official, but assuming there is any validity to it, we could be looking at government trained, »

Bd Wong’s Shady Geneticist Will Be Back For Jurassic World 2

20 February 2017 7:52 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Ahead of its launch next June, production on Universal’s Jurassic World 2 is officially underway in London, and it appears those early rumors linking Bd Wong with Juan Antonio Bayona’s monstrous sequel were right all along.

Taking to Instagram over the course of the weekend, Wong all but confirmed that he’ll reprise the role of shady geneticist Dr. Henry Wu, who was last seen fleeing Isla Nublar by helicopter with a raft of dinosaur embryos. Towards the end of Colin Trevorrow’s franchise revival, we learned that Wu actually held an alliance with Vic Hoskins (Vincent D’Onofrio) that involved licensing InGen’s research to the military. And we all know how much Hoskins wanted to assimilate the Velociraptors onto the battlefield.

Can we expect to see Wong’s pioneering research stretch beyond the parameters of Costa Rica come 2018? It would certainly appear so. Besides, such a plot »

Jurassic World 2 Brings in James Cromwell

16 February 2017 5:16 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

With production beginning soon in London on Universal's highly-anticipated Jurassic World 2, the cast continues to be filled out. Oscar nominated actor and Emmy winner James Cromwell has signed on for an unspecified role in this action-packed sequel. Much like all of the other new cast members, no details have been given for the character James Cromwell is playing, but he'll join Jurassic World stars Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard and Bd Wong, who return as Owen Grady, Claire Dearing and Dr. Henry Wu, respectively.

Earlier this week, producer Frank Marshall revealed a photo from his new office, hinting that production has begun on this sequel. While pre-production is likely still happening, The Hollywood Reporter reveals that principal photography won't actually start until later this month, although a specific date wasn't given quite yet. It remains to be seen how many more roles need to be filled out before filming actually begins. »

Jurassic World 2 Begins Production in London

14 February 2017 5:20 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

A few weeks ago, Jurassic World 2 director J.A. Bayona shared the first photo from the set of this highly-anticipated sequel, teasing that filming is about to begin soon. That wasn't exactly a surprise to some fans, since there had been reports that filming will start this February in London. While it hasn't been confirmed if cameras have started rolling or not, production is getting closer and closer to happening, as evidenced by a new photo from producer Frank Marshall.

Frank Marshall, who produced the 2015 blockbuster Jurassic World along with Steven Spielberg, took to Twitter to share a photo of his new London office. Alongside a poster of Jurassic World is a poster for the 1960 cult classic Dinosaurus!, along with a number of dinosaur toys on a shelf, setting the stage for this new sequel. This new image comes just hours after a new report surfaced that shed some potential light on the story. »

Jurassic World 2 to Tackle Dinosaur Rights Issue?

14 February 2017 12:07 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Jurassic World wound up really taking the world by surprise in 2015. People expected the movie to be big, but it was truly a monstrous smash hit and has really reinvigorated the Jurassic Park franchise. That said, it was a little hard for some to imagine where the story could go from there and even though Jurassic World 2 will start filming this month, plot details have been almost as non-existent as the prehistoric creatures at the center of the franchise. Now, thanks to a couple of newly purchased domain names, we have our first look at the potential plot for the upcoming Jurassic World sequel.

Recently, the folks over at the fan site Jurassic Outpost noticed that Universal purchased two new domain names that are very clearly related to Jurassic World 2; IslaNublarRescueMission.com and AllCreaturesHaveRights.com (as well as .org). While that may not seem like much, the domain names are pretty telling. »
