Colin Trevorrow Promises That ‘Fallen Kingdom’ is Nothing Like ‘The Lost World’

Life finds a way when we enter the Fallen Kingdom on June 22, 2018.

When the trailer for Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom hit earlier this month, many fans of the franchise were comparing the Jurassic World sequel to the sequel to the original film, The Lost World: Jurassic Park. Indeed the film does appear to have similar plot elements, but writer/producer Colin Trevorrow promises it’s a far different experience.

It looks like it is [similar to The Lost World] because they all go to a fog-covered, scary island with dinosaurs on it, but it goes to a very, very different place than anyone expects,” Trevorrow said during a recent interview. “Really the heart and soul of the movie, the turn of the story, is not what we’ve shown in this trailer. It’s very much not like The Lost World.”

As Trevorrow recently noted, everything on display in the trailer was taken from the first 57-minutes of the movie, meaning that we really haven’t seen anything yet.

During the same chat, Trevorrow confirmed that a JW trilogy is still the plan.

J. A. Bayona (A Monster Calls) directed the new installment.Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard are returning for the sequel, which also stars Jeff Goldblum, along with Justice Smith, James Cromwell and Toby Jones. Colin Trevorrow, who directed Jurassic World, wrote the script for the sequel with Derek Connolly.

Producers Frank Marshall and Pat Crowley once again join executive producers Steven Spielberg and Trevorrow. Belén Atienza also produced.

It’s been four years since theme park and luxury resort Jurassic World was destroyed by dinosaurs out of containment.  Isla Nublar now sits abandoned by humans while the surviving dinosaurs fend for themselves in the jungles.

When the island’s dormant volcano begins roaring to life, Owen (Chris Pratt) and Claire (Bryce Dallas Howard) mount a campaign to rescue the remaining dinosaurs from this extinction-level event. Owen is driven to find Blue, his lead raptor who’s still missing in the wild, and Claire has grown a respect for these creatures she now makes her mission. Arriving on the unstable island as lava begins raining down, their expedition uncovers a conspiracy that could return our entire planet to a perilous order not seen since prehistoric times.

With all of the wonder, adventure and thrills synonymous with one of the most popular and successful series in cinema history, this all-new motion-picture event sees the return of favorite characters and dinosaurs—along with new breeds more awe-inspiring and terrifying than ever before.  Welcome to Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom.

    So is he saying this one will be a good movie? Because Jurassic World sure as fuck wasn’t.

    • gary41172

      Maybe you didn’t like it, but there are many who did, including myself and am looking forward to this. The only thing about JW that got to me was her running in her heels, so, from me, it gets a thumbs up.

    • HeWaTcHeSnOeYeS

      Hopefully.
      Any improvement would make this better than that cgi fuckfest.

    • zombie84_41

      i thought it was badass and good but this one looks stupid as fuck

    • it´s not fair to consider JW a bad movie. lately it became trendy to criticize it , but it´s actually a good sequel even if it has its flaws

      • J Jett

        i didn’t hate JW but to say “lately it became trendy to criticize it” is ridiculous. so it’s also “trendy” to say it’s a good sequel? you can’t have it both ways. both PRO- and CON- opinions on the film are valid depending on one’s opinion of the film (or any film).

      • Collin

        I disliked it about fifteen minutes in and it didn’t improve for me from there

  • Maelwolf

    Quite enjoyed Jurassic World, was a lot of fun. I like what I’ve seen for Fallen Kingdom so far, doesn’t sound like it will disappoint.

  • TheSlitheryDee

    Hopefully it’s half as good as Lost World, since JW was the worst entry.

    • JW was an acceptable sequel. the worst one is JP3 by far

      • TheSlitheryDee

        Neither was acceptable! Only reason JP3 easily tops JW is Sam Neill.

  • I Am Colossus

    Fuck I’ll go see it anyway

  • DukeStKing

    What happened to all the pteradactyl type creatures that got loose and flew away? They had to have gone somewhere. Mexico? The U.S.A.? Where man??

    • zombie84_41

      the white house

  • zombie84_41

    then we all watch it and get pissed because they shuff another shit down our throat like they did with the last jedi

  • Tyler

    I really hope this is great like Jurassic World! We deserve a great movie after the abysmal year we have had, hence the major let downs of Wonder Woman, It, Justice League and Kong!

    • J Jett

      WONDER WOMAN was a great movie.

      • Tyler

        I know a lot of people liked it – I was just talking about for me. I never fell for the whole “female empowerment icon” of Wonder Woman because it’s not the first role of the sort like many people believe it is. So, with that aside, I felt like I was just watching a very boring, never ending Xbox game.

        • DukeStKing

          Exactly.

        • MODOK

          There might have been other roles, but certainly not of this magnitude.

          • Tyler

            Not actually true. Frozen and Alice in Wonderland have higher magnitudes than Wonder Woman and they don’t get that recognition.

          • MODOK

            Those are kids’ movies. I’m sure any number of animated movies with spunky heroines, more so in recent years than in decades past. You could lump Brave or Little Mermaid in there if that’s all it took. While those movies have their place, it’s not the same as having a female character lead a megabudget superhero movie.

            Superhero movies are like the lingua franca of movie audiences–they’re billion-dollar enterprises that are beloved by all demographics and shape our popular culture. Yet none were ever entrusted to a female lead character. The closest was Black Widow, a supporting character who most recently was reduced to calming the Hulk.

            I’m not saying there’s never been a movie with a female heroine, action star or superhero in any movie ever. But Wonder Woman was bigger, better and more important.

  • John Connor

    Too bad, because The Lost World was the best.

  • Bart Crowe

    I still think the original Jurassic Park is the only good movie in the entire series. The only part in Jurassic World I genuinely enjoyed in the entire movie was a possibly ad-libbed conversation between Lauren Lapkus and Jake Johnson about how Carl Winslow from Family Matters was America’s Dad.

  • Collin

    Zero interest in this. The first one felt like a manufactured product in every way. Granted movies technically are manufactured products but the good ones don’t have you realize that while watching.

    Also why is this on BD?? Regardless of the first films jw was not even attempting to be horror. It was an adventure film.

  • MODOK

    I hope this one won’t have all those dinosaurs and will instead focus on the real reason people go to see a Jurassic movie: the human interactions!

  • Necro

    Well I don’t know what he was exactly trying to imply there, I don’t want to think he’s full of shit, but I have to! Until I’ve seen it there’s not too much that can convince me otherwise. Don’t get me wrong I like this franchise but I’ve been duped way to many times before, and not just necessarily with this franchise, but movies in general. They promise this they guarantee that, sorry but money talks and more so nowadays with whatever it takes to get asses in the seats, especially with big budget films! I hope he delivers and I can look back and say that he wasn’t lying.

  • Trioxin83

    I think the military is still going to be involved and they are going to push the genetically engineered/human DNA spliced, militarized dinosaur plot that was rumored a long time ago

  • Khy

    I don’t know if that’s a good thing or bad thing because I actually like Lost World. Though we do live in a time where alot of these “Requels” are nothing but modernized rehashes of previous films so maybe it’s good. Either way I did not enjoy the trailer.

    I love Chris Pratt but this movie looks more like “Chris Pratt being Chris Pratt…oh and there’s dinosaurs too!”. And Bryce Dallas looks like she’s just there to be his target for lame flirting and corny middle school relationship jokes. I actually enjoyed her in the first…heels and all.

  • Jace Junkerman

    They’re taking stuff from the lost world book that wasnt’ in the movie and adding it to this, carnotaurs, another character from the first, other dinosaurs used in both books but not in the movies

  • madchilli

    My god, people are moaning about a film that isn’t made or out yet.

    • Super VJ Land

      SHUT THE FUCK UP!

      im tired of people that says we cant criticize a movie until it comes out. These are the same people that AFTER the movie comes out (and we give our opinion) says we cant criticize the movie because it was AWESOME. according to you, WHEN CAN WE SPEAK? let me guess: NEVER RIGHT?

      • madchilli

        Go F*** yourself and read my statement again…. you can read can’t you???? Nowhere in that one simple statement does it say “you cannot criticize”. Go back to fucking school…..child!!! and give your PC back to your dad…. he’s missing it.
