After yielding $1.6 billion earnings in the box office, a sequel to this summer’s block buster Jurassic World was always going to be certain. This American science fiction adventure film is directed by J. A. Bayona.
The film is the fifth installment of the Jurassic Park film series, as well as the second installment of an intended Jurassic World trilogy. The film features Derek Connolly and Jurassic World director Colin Trevorrow both returning as writers, with Trevorrow and original Jurassic Park director Steven Spielberg acting as executive producers. The film is set on the imaginary island of Isla Nublar, located off Central America’s Pacific Coast. Filming was undertaken from February to July 2017 in England and Hawaii.
Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, and B. D. Wong will repeat their roles from the preceding film, with James Cromwell, Ted Levine, Justice Smith, Geraldine Chaplin, Daniella Pineda, Toby Jones, Rafe Spall, and Isabella Sermon joining the cast. Jeff Goldblum will reappear in his role as Dr. Ian Malcolm from the original film and its 1997 sequel.
The summary of the movie is as follows:
It has been four years since theme park and luxury resort Jurassic World was destroyed by dinosaurs out of control. Isla Nublar now sits uninhibited by humans while the dinosaurs live by themselves in the jungles. The dinosaurs roam freely on the island.
When the island’s volcano becomes active, Owen (Chris Pratt) and Claire (Bryce Dallas Howard) start a campaign to save the remaining dinosaurs. The impending volcanic eruption threatens to destroy the island and the dinosaurs. Claire Dearing (Bryce Dallas Howard), the former park manager, has now established the Dinosaur Protection Group, an organization devoted to rescuing the dinosaurs. Claire teams up with Benjamin Lockwood (James Cromwell), the former partner of John Hammond, to launch a dinosaur rescue mission and bring the creatures to a sanctuary that Lockwood has created in America.
She also persuades Owen Grady (Chris Pratt), a previous dinosaur trainer who worked at the park and her ex-boyfriend, to join her expedition. Owen is determined to discover Blue, his prime raptor who is still lost in the wild, and Claire has developed an admiration for these creatures she now makes her mission. Arriving on the unhinged island as lava begins flowing, their mission reveals a plan that could return our entire planet to a unsafe order not seen since primitive times.
After Isla Nublar is destroyed by the volcano, the dinosaurs are brought to Lockwood’s large parkland, located in America. At the estate, Owen and Claire realize that the dinosaurs are being sold rather than saved. A hybrid dinosaur known as the Indoraptor escapes terrifying people at the park.
Universal Pictures has planned the film to be released in the United States on June 22, 2018. An untitled sequel is intended to be released on June 11, 2021.
