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.

UK Cinemas List ‘Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom’ with Running Time of 2 Hours and 8 Minutes

Has the running time of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom’ been revealed?

Just yesterday ‘Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdomwas rated the PG-13 for “intense sequences of science-fiction violence and peril” by the MPAA. To receive its rating by the MPAA, this means the film has achieved picture lock, and its running time is mostly set.

In conjunction with the US rating of the film, some UK cinemas have updated their pages for Fallen Kingdom, listing a running time: 128 minutes.

While some theater chains put placeholder run times on their film pages, the fact that this is listed the same on multiple chains adds credence that it’s been supplied by Universal Pictures. If rumors of ticket pre-sales starting soon are true this means theater chains have been given the run time so they can appropriately choose time slots for the film.

According to Curzon Cinemas, they will begin selling tickets for Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom on Wednesday the 18th April and along with the movie’s page on their website comes a running time, which could very well be real. However, at this time the news itself remains unconfirmed, and should be treated as a rumor until officially corroborated.

Further, this running time is very consistent with other films in the franchise (other than the disappointingly short third film). Jurassic Park’s running time is 127 minutes, The Lost World’s 129 minutes, Jurassic Park 3’s 94 minutes, Jurassic World is 124 minutes, and according to both Curzon Cinemas and Showcase Cinemas, the official running time for Fallen Kingdom is 128 minutes – 2 hours and 8 minutes.

A minute longer than the first Jurassic but likely filled with heaps more dinosaur action, Fallen Kingdom releases in less than 70 days. Stay tuned, the third trailer will be attached to Avengers: Infinity War and debut online even sooner, prior to ticket pre-sales!

Rumor: ‘Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom’ Tickets on Sale April 23rd; New Footage with The Walking Dead?

Anybody hear that? It’s a uhh… it’s an impact tremor, that’s what it is.

With less than two months to go until Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom releases in theaters, the marketing campaign is expected to roar to life any day now. The third and likely ‘final’ trailer has been rated, and is expected to drop some time this month, perhaps even in a few days! As is common, the tickets are expected to go on sale in conjunction with trailer (though not necessarily on the same date).

According to Norwegian theater chain, Gjøvik Cinemas, that date is April 23rd, 2018.

While the posting is official, we’re treating the news as a rumor for now until it’s officially corroborated by Universal, other theater chains, or otherwise. However, the date entirely makes sense give the current speculation regarding the release date of the next trailer.

This Sunday April 15th, the season finale of The Walking Dead premieres on AMC. The shows finale episodes are typically a huge TV event, attracting large audiences, and exclusive mainstream ads. On March 29th 2015, the following 30 second TV spot hit with the Walking Dead’s season finale, just under a month prior to the final ‘global’ trailer:

While there is no evidence to corroborate this, the current speculation is that a similar new TV Spot will debut this Sunday for Fallen Kingdom, with the full trailer potentially hitting online shortly after. The Final Trailer for Jurassic World released April 20th, with the tickets going on sale May 11th – assuming tickets do go on sale April 23rd, these timelines align in a moderately similar fashion, albeit less of a wait this time around.

Considering the huge box office success of Jurassic World, tickets sales starting earlier is logical, as theaters will be eager to see a repeat of that success by locking in fans as soon as possible. We’re pumped to see more from the movie, and once tickets go on sale, it’s likely other ad forms will be released, such as new theatrical posters! Whether or not the trailer releases the 15th, 23rd, or another date altogether one thing is almost certain: it will be released before April is over.

Are you excited for a new Fallen Kingdom trailer, and do you know where you plan to reserve tickets once they go on sale? Sound off, and as always, stay tuned for the latest news!
