Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom Premieres in Madrid, Spain and The First Reactions Are In!

The World Premiere for Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom took place today in Madrid, Spain. While celebrities and guests had to dodge rain and even hail during the red carpet, the day capped with the first official showing of the 5th installement of the Jurassic Park film franchise and it recieved a 10 minute standing ovation.

Early buzz and reactions from people who attended the premiere appear to be mostly positive. A lot of the praise seems to be in regard to the job director J.A. Bayona did on the film.

Check out some of the initial reactions on Twitter from the Spanish auidence. Rough translations of the tweets into English are below.

English translation: # JurassicWorld2 is the continuation that the saga deserves. It is not only interesting as it arises, but what is to come is going to be BRUTAL. @FilmBayona, you don’t disappoint.

English translation: 10 Minutes applauding … #JurassicWorldElReinoCaido is awesome … and the impeccable seal @FilmBayona as always! I will not say more … well yes. Mandatory visit to the cinema next June 7 #JurassicworldPremiere

English translation: I’m hallucinating. #JurassicWorld # ElReinoCaido is a host of emotions and the beginning of a new era at the hands of @FilmBayona. #PremiereJW

English translation: OK, saw Jurassic World: Fallen kingdom.
AWESOME. Very different from the first, an incredible film, the music has left me blown away. Very, very, but that very recommended. I watched the whole movie with my eyes wide open. Go see it for real.

English translation: @ FilmBayona had it difficult but has managed to exceed my expectations with a huge movie. Also this # jurassicworld has for me the best start sequence of the saga. All the applause has been few

English translation: The #FallenKingdom is the movie of 2018. You will flip and you will load! Congratulations @FilmBayona!

While the far majority of the initial reactions were positive, not everyone was in love with the latest installment.

English translation: #JurassicWorld2 It’s a blockbuster but disappoints me as a Bayona film. It is a very well-solved commission, but it offers few surprises. It’s his first movie that does not excite me. It raises several very interesting moral / social debates

English translation: Saw # JurassicWorld2 I have to say that some scenes have surprised me and turned out great, but some script decisions as a certain moment related to the little one … have seemed pretty sloppy.

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom opens on June 6th in the UK and June 22nd domestically. Over the next couple of weeks we will start to see reviews from film critics pour in, so stay tuned for our coverage on that!

Report: Cinematographer John Schwartzman returning for Jurassic World 3

The website Omega Underground is reporting that Jurassic World Cinematographer John Schwartzman is returning in the same role for Jurassic World 3.

With J.A. Bayona directing the second film in the new trilogy, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, he brought along Oscar Faura to be his cinematographer. But for the final film in the new trilogy, Colin Trevorrow is returning to the director’s chair and it makes sense he would turn back to someone he has prior experience with.

In addition to Jurassic World, Schwartzman has worked on numerous other films including Saving Mr. Banks, Armageddon, The Book of Henry and Seabiscuit, which he was nominated for an Academy Award.

Jurassic World 3 is slated to hit theaters on June 11, 2021.

Thank you to Matt for the heads up on this report.

IGN has first look at Isla Pena, the most dangerous island yet in Jurassic World: Evolution

IGN has another exclusive first look for the upcoming Jurassic World: Evolution game, this time of Isla Pena, which they deem as the most dangerous island yet.

Isla Pena is the smallest of the five islands that make up the Muertes archipelago, alongside Isla Matanceros, Muerta, Tacano and Sorna. Accordining to IGN, Pena is one of the most dangerous and challenging islands in the Jurassic World: Evolution game.

It’s one of the most challenging islands for two reasons: first, only a small area of land is suitable for development, so you really have to make every square foot count. Second, everything on Isla Pena takes place at night. Who knows why the Hammond foundation picked it as a great spot for a park full of tourists but there we are.

Some of our team members went hands on with Jurassic World: Evolution at the Jurassic Park 25th Anniversary Celebration in Hollywood, and they cannot get over the game. Check out the video for Isla Pena below!

Jurassic World rumored to be coming to Universal Studios Beijing in 2021!

Universal Studios Beijing is set to open in 2021 and one of the main sections of the 300-acre theme park is rumored to be themed to Jurassic World. This report comes as Universal Studios Hollywood announced Jurassic Park: The Ride is closing in September to be re-themed to Jurassic World for 2019.

The blog Disney and More has some screenshots from an apparent video of new artisitc renders for the main lands including Jurassic World. While the screenshots don’t show much it does fuel the speculation that Jurassic World is coming to the Universal Studios Beijing theme park. Check out the renders below.

There is no word on what the attractions might be in the Jurassic World section, but a good bet would be some sort of ride based on the Gyrosphere technology in the new films. In 2014, Slash Film visited the set of Jurassic World and producer Frank Marshall mentioned the Gyrosphere as a potential new ride at the theme parks.

Producer Frank Marshall told us that Universal Studios theme park is developing stuff that should be current with the movie when it’s finally released. The theme park was really curious about what they were doing; Marshall thinks they might be making a ride version of the gyrosphere for one of the theme parks as the theme park guys were very excited when they saw them on set

Saturday Night Live puts Jurassic World on trial in comedy sketch

NBC’s Saturday Night Live has lately been in a Jurassic mood, with a fake Jurassic Park audition sketch in March and last night when Jurassic World was taken to court following some deaths of visitors to the park.

Actor Donald Glover, who can be seen as the young Lando Calrissian in Solo: A Star Wars Story on May 25th was the host of last night’s Saturday Night Live episode.

In a sketch titled “Courtroom”, Glover plays a lawyer who is defending Jurassic World after an incident where park visitors were killed by dinosaurs. Unlike the Jurassic Park audition parody sketch, this sketch in this writer’s opinion was very funny and definitely worth checking out.

Check out the full sketch below.

Jurassic World 3 Will Be a Jurassic Park Style “Science Thriller”

Entertainment Weekly continues to be full of news today in regards to the Jurassic franchise. In addition to all the new Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom news and photos, they also touched on the next installment when they spoke with Colin Trevorrow about what we might expect with Jurassic World 3. It was announced on March 30th that Trevorrow would return to the director’s chair for Jurassic World 3.

Trevorrow told EW that he has grown to love and cherish the value of the gift he has been given with the franchise over the past few years. He also states that Steven Spielberg asked him to return to direct the final installment of the new trilogy.

Trevorrow calls Jurassic World 3 a “science thriller” and also confims that the characters of Owen Grady and Claire Dearing will return and it sounds like some new characters in Fallen Kingdom may play a role in the next installment.

Trevorrow, who is currently writing Jurassic World 3 with Emily Carmichael (Pacific Rim: Uprising) is mum on plot details but does say the final film will still feature Owen (Chris Pratt) and Claire (Bryce Dallas Howard). He adds, “But there’s other characters who we’ll meet in Fallen Kingdom you’ll realize are major characters.”

Trevorrow also says the next film will be most close in tone to Steven Spielberg’s 1993 original. Reveals the director, “If I could contextualize each film, I would say Jurassic World was an action adventure, Fallen Kingdom is kind of a horror suspense film, and Jurassic World 3 will be a science thriller in the same way that Jurassic Park was.

Jurassic World 3 is scheduled to hit theaters on June 11, 2021.
