Jurassic World 2 just got a whole lot more interesting. Good or bad? you decide. But definitely interesting. There have been rumors for a few months that some sort of threat on Isla Nublar is going to force a rescue mission, with the humans rescuing the dinosaurs this time. Now, producer Frank Marshall has confirmed that a volcanic threat will be present in Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom. Is this what will force said rescue mission to take place? Sounds like a very strong possibility.
Frank Marshall has been very active on social media throughout the production on Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom and the movie recently wrapped filming in Hawaii. Following the production wrap, Marshall took to Twitter in order to confirm this volcanic threat in the movie, via a joke that relates to the Jimmy Buffet musical Escape to Margaritaville. Here's what Frank Marshall had to say about it.

Production on Jurassic World 2 is nearly coming to a close. Filming is expected to wrap this week on the fifth installment of the Jurassic Park franchise, but it looks like a few surprises are still coming our way before production finishes up. We've known for some time that this movie is going to feature a lot more practical dinosaur effects than the first Jurassic World and these new set photos are proof of that. For fans of the original Jurassic Park, this is probably about as big as it gets because a fan-favorite dinosaur is making her triumphant return.
Warning: possible spoilers ahead for Jurassic World 2. A while back, writer/producer Colin Trevorrow revealed that the original Jurassic Park T-rex, which many fans have taken to calling Rexy over the years, is going to be appearing in Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom. Thanks to these new set photos from JurassicWorld2Movie. »
The soundtrack will be released on July 7th and is available for pre-order here.

Over Fourth of July weekend twenty years ago, moviegoers learned the good guys dress in black.
The previous July, Will Smith had started his journey to being one of the biggest movie stars in the world with Independence Day, and Men in Black proved that July belonged to the rapper-turned-actor. Men in Black was a smash, trailing only The Lost World: Jurassic Park at the box office in the summer of 1997.
At the center of the massive marketing machine for Men in Black was a $1 million music video for an irresistible theme song performed and co-written by Smith that came »

Full disclosure: Jurassic Park is my favorite movie. Always has been, always will be. I was born in 1989, and though I grew up on a steady cinematic diet of the usual staples like Star Wars and Indiana Jones, I was, essentially, late to the party. I wasn’t there in 1977 when the world was first taken back a long time ago to a galaxy far, far away. I wasn’t there in 1981 when audiences first met Indy, or in 1982 when a young boy became best friends with a stranded extraterrestrial, or in 1985 when Marty McFly traveled back to 1955. These were the types of stories I grew up on, love, and cherish, of course, but it wasn’t until 1993 that I had the chance to be present as a film became something else, transcending into a cultural event of its own.
Like the countless children before me who took a »

The sequel to “Jurassic World” got an official title on Thursday morning — one year ahead of its expected release.
The new poster for the upcoming film, subtitled “Fallen Kingdom,” includes a tag line for the film: “Life finds a way.”
Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard will reprise their roles from the last movie. Jeff Goldblum — who appeared in 1993’s “Jurassic Park” and in 1997’s “The Lost World: Jurassic Park” — joins the sequel. The rest of the cast includes B. D. Wong, Toby Jones, Rafe Spall, Justice Smith, Daniella Pineda, Ted Levine, Geraldine Chaplin, and James Cromwell.
Bayona shared a first-look photo of “Fallen Kingdom” in March. The image shows a mysterious young girl in a natural history museum with her back turned to the camera.
“Jurassic World” grossed $1.67 billion worldwide, the fourth-highest-earning movie in history. Vice president of production Sara Scott is overseeing production for the sequel on behalf of the studio.
“Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom” is scheduled to hit theaters in exactly one year on June 22, 2018.

Steven Spielberg is the most famous filmmaker in the world, so it was only a matter of time before his lengthy filmography was scrutinized by 21st century standards. The Bechdel test was going to find him eventually.
The Bechdel test — coined by graphic novelist Alison Bechdel, it calls for a movie to have at least two named woman characters, who speak to each other about something other than a man — has its flaws, but it’s a simple, quantifiable way to measure whether a movie’s portrayal of women is credible. It’s not an issue that would have come up for Spielberg when he launched his career nearly 50 years ago, but times have changed.

Over the course of his sterling career, Steven Spielberg has become known as a purveyor of blockbuster properties but he's also gained a reputation for his savvy casting choices. That includes giving important early lead roles to the likes of Whoopi Goldberg (The Color Purple) and Christian Bale (Empire of the Sun) and recognizing rising stars like Vince Vaughn (The Lost World: Jurassic Park) and Vin Diesel (Saving Private Ryan) by casting them in key supporting roles. More than a dozen actors have earned Academy Award nominations for their performances in Steven Spielberg's movies, including Oscar winners Daniel Day-Lewis (Lincoln) and Mark Rylance (Bridge of Spies).

Not since United Artists had launched in the 1930s had Hollywood seen anything quite like it. Steven Spielberg, David Geffen and Jeffrey Katzenberg – a trio with a lot of money and a big contacts book between them – came together to launch the first new studio in a generation. It was called DreamWorks Skg, and it was not short on ambition.
Katzenberg would be heading up its animation arm, and soon got to work, with the likes of Antz and The Prince Of Egypt getting things going. But on the live action side, the assumption that Spielberg would exclusively make his films for the studio quickly proved false. Post-the formation of DreamWorks, his first movie as director would instead be The Lost World: Jurassic Park for Universal. Only then would he »
If you’re a fan of movies that pit people against the savage parts of nature, then you’re in luck. There’s not just one, but two such films on the horizon. Namely, we have belated sequel/reboot Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle and the currently untitled sequel to 2015’s smash hit Jurassic World.
Courtesy of Collider, we now have a bunch of posters for these two similarly-themed but very different movies. The posters were on display at the Licensing Expo in Las Vegas, where studios go to promote their upcoming projects to major brand owners. They aren’t intended to be shown to the general public yet, then, but thanks to the magic of cell phone photography, we have them for you here.
First, we’ve got the poster for Jumanji. As you can see below, it’s clearly harking back to the 1995 original in the use of a very similar logo. »

The three-year-old studio also has hired veteran Universal publicity executive Alissa Grayson as co-president of domestic marketing.
Adam Fogelson, chairman of STXfilms, made the announcement Wednesday. Grayson will report to Egan, and the two will co-run STXfilms’ marketing division and oversee the staff that includes creative advertising, research, digital marketing, public relations, promotions, events, and media and innovation.
Egan was named interim head of the department last September. He previously served as Universal’s president of marketing and as president of worldwide marketing for Illumination Entertainment, where he launched the campaign for “Despicable Me.” He also oversaw campaigns for “Bridesmaids,” “Knocked Up,” “The 40-Year-Old Virgin,” “A Beautiful Mind,” “The Lost World: Jurassic Park,” “The Fast and the Furious” and its first four sequels, “Apollo 13,” and “Babe. »

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 »

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 »

With the great critical success of Mad Max: Fury Road, it came as no surprise that there was a lot of talk of more adventures from George Miller’s universe. However, since then, we’ve not heard much else. In a recent interview Miller has revealed that there are plans in place for a trilogy saying, “We dug down deep into the subtext, the backstory of all the characters, and indeed the world…and without really thinking about it, we wrote two other screenplays just as part of the bible of the stories. Somewhere, if the planets align, there will be two other films.” Read more here.

According to The Hollywood Reporter Dr. Ian Malcolm, played by the one and only Jeff Goldblum, will show up in the sequel to Jurassic World. We last saw Goldblum’s Ian Malcolm survived a T-Rex attack in San Diego back in 1997 in The Lost World: Jurassic Park. Before that he spread his wisdom and again barely […]
Is there a mathematician in the house? There is now! Jeff Goldblum, who portrayed mathematician Dr. Ian Malcolm to winning effect in Jurassic Park and The Lost World: Jurassic Park, is returning to the dinosaur series. He has joined the cast of Jurassic World 2, according to The Hollywood Reporter, and will reprise his character. The injured Dr. Malcolm uttered what may be the original movie's most famous line -- "Must go faster," which you can enjoy in the clip below -- so we hope that writers Colin Trevorrow and Derek Connolly have conjured up some suitable dialogue for him. Goldblum reprised another well-known character in Independence Day: Resurgence (above), but perhaps this will be a better experience for everyone. J.A. Bayona is directing the sequel, which will...

Well, well, Dr. Malcolm I presume… Yes, it would seem that Dr. Ian Malcolm, aka actor Jeff Goldblum, is set to return to the dinosaur business as Goldblum is reportedly going to reprise his wary scientist role in Jurassic World 2. From THR:
Jeff Goldblum is returning to the land of dinosaurs. The actor, who co-starred in 1993′s Jurassic Park and 1997′s The Lost World: Jurassic Park, will appear in Universal Pictures and Amblin Entertainment’s next Jurassic World film. Goldblum will reprise his role as Dr. Ian Malcolm, the know-it-all mathematician who came to the park as an insurance consultant — and somehow survived both the original film and the sequel.
Goldblum will be joining Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard in the film, which will be directed by A Monster Calls helmer J.A. Bayona; and also stars Justice Smith, James Cromwell, Rafe Spall and Toby Jones. Colin Trevorrow, who directed Jurassic World, »

Good news for anyone craving a bit of nostalgia for the upcoming untitled J.A. Bayona-directed Jurassic World sequel, as Jeff Goldblum’s classic character Dr. Ian Malcolm is set to make his return to the franchise, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The actor previously starred in both Jurassic Park and The Lost World: Jurassic Park. There are currently no details as to how he’ll factor into the story of the new film, but more news is sure to come out as time passes. Moviegoers will also be able to see Goldblum later this year in Thor: Ragnarok, where he will most likely disclose some minor details about Jurassic World 2 during press interviews.
