Chris Pratt Promises ‘Jurassic World 2’ is Darker and Scarier

Plus more practical effects! Are you excited now?!

Director J.A. Bayona (The Orphanage, A Monster Calls) is at the helm of the upcoming Jurassic World 2, and quite some time ago he teased that the sequel would be a bit scarier than its predecessor – hearkening back, perhaps, to Jurassic Park, which wasn’t far off from being a horror movie. Is he going to deliver on that promise? According to Chris Pratt, you betcha!

Speaking with Screen Rant, Pratt threw around words like “scary” and “dark” to describe Bayona’s vision for 2018’s return to the dinosaur-infested theme park:

Aw man, J.A. Bayona? Do you know that filmmaker? He’s a remarkable filmmaker. 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.

The new film’s cast includes the returning Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard alongside Ted Levine, Daniella Pineda, Geraldine Chaplin, Justice Smith, Rafe Spall and Toby Jones.

Colin Trevorrow co-wrote the screenplay with Derek Connolly, and will exec produce with Steven Spielberg. Belén Atienza, Patrick Crowley and Frank Marshall will produce.

The 2015 feature grossed $1.67 billion at the global box office, becoming the fourth highest-grossing movie of all time.

The park opens again on June 22, 2018.

    Ted Levine and “scarier and more suspenseful” in the same movie? Sign me up.

    Im excited for the directing this time but the fact that it has the writers of the original (which was a pretty awful script tbh) gives me big pause. Very happy for more practical for sure though.

    i really hope so, JW was too much of a cartoonish self parody

  • Always in the mood for another JW. Although, I remember with JP 3, there was all of this pumping up only for the movie to be complete garbage. It’s the only one out of all of them that I’ve only been able to watch about 5 or so times. The other three had me hooked from day one and still watch them from time to time. I have high hopes though because JW was so good!! Just want the EPIC dino fights to be a little more… EPIC. I know it costs a lot, but I would love to see a good 20 or so minutes dedicated to two huge dinosaurs going at it. As a matter of fact, maybe the WHOLE movie should kick off the chasing type stuff around 15 minutes in.
