Sci-Fi Gareth Edwards's Jurassic World Sequel

Did a dino really wink at the camera in Fallen Kingdom? I'd love to see that clip. :rofl: I've only watched that horrible movie once and that was in theaters. I don't think I can take a rewatch.

It was more like a smirk but this is straight up Looney Tunes right here:

How far we have Fallen from JP.
Yeah but I will say that as dumb as that was, that whole sequence of the Indoraptor breaking out was one of the more fun parts of the movie. Ted Levine was also one of the better villain characters in the World movies.
 
Superman vs Dinos, ya'll!
 
Im hoping one of these movies moves. But I guess we'll see!
 
With a script by David Koepp, the new movie is touted as “a completely fresh take launching a new Jurassic era, following three adults and three teens getting stuck on the Island.” The new film has also been labeled as “Jurassic World 4” and “Jurassic City.”

So Nublar or Sorna again? That kind of counters the Jurassic CITY promise.
 
Let's go. See if Edwards can land a great film. I like his style more than his output generally, but it will be a refreshing take on this series and a nice low bar to clear ha.
 
If nothing else, it's gonna be the most gorgeous Jurassic film since at least The Lost World
Yep the king of making above average movies look good.

He's what fans expected Snyder to be. :o
 
This isn't moving. Universal and Disney are both hoping to take out Superman.
 
I wonder would they bring the Spinosaurus back.
I think they totally could and should. People didn't hate the Spinosaurus itself as much as they hated it being a replacement for the T-Rex. I didn't see anything wrong with them introducing a new big carnivore in the franchise but replacing the T-Rex in the logo for JP III was a mistake, for starters. But I'd still take the Spinosaurus over any of the new dinosaurs introduced in the World movies.
 
JP/// also stated that the Spinosaurus wasn't on InGen's list, which was an intriguing hint that to my knowledge (I know it pops up in Camp Cretaceous but I haven't seen that show nor am aware if it's the same one) was never elaborated on. I'd love to see it coming back, but unfortunately I don't think it's unlikely.

That's the kind of small lore scenes I loved as a kid. Just a throwaway "It wasn't on their list, what else are they hiding?" just makes your imagination go wild. Personally I really liked the Spino (even if he acted more like Jason Voorhees stalking our characters over the whole island) but in retrospect it probably was a big mistake on their part to have him kill the T-Rex in that fight scene.

As much as I love the T-rex and the velociraptors I would be fully on board retiring them from the next few films because we've had more than enough of them and every time they bring them back its just diminishing returns and the magic wears off. There's plenty of other cool dinosaurs you can give more focus on without inventing new ones or reusing the old ones we've seen time and time again. I also feel like at this point we're so far away from the level of the original that it almost feels like mockery to try and evoke the same emotions and whatnot by bringing back the T-rex or the velociraptors. Like a band that had some amazing albums 40 years ago but have been on a huge decline who make a new album and re-record some old hit songs. It's not gonna be the same.

I saw a fan theory video on YouTube a while back that provided a theory as to why the Spinosaurus was stalking them all through the movie that I can get behind. Basically how it goes was after the group landed on the island and the mercenaries went off into the jungle on their own to scout the area, they encountered the Spino nest with a baby. The baby then attacked them and they killed it, which would explain why that one guy who didn't make it back to the plane was injured when he was running away. The noise from that combined with Tea Leoni yelling on the megaphone attracted the adult, which then went into a rage once it saw what happened and that's why it stalked them across the island. It's slightly farfetched but I can buy it as headcanon. It's no less believable than the T-Rex in JPIII killed being an older version of the infant from The Lost World as far as fan theories go.

Fan theories like that are definitely fun whether plausible or not. When it comes to the Spino I don't really care too much about his motivations really. I mean life at the dino island must get pretty stale after a while, you hunt the same dinosaurs every day and you're the alpha and there's no excitement. Then one day a plane of loud humans show up and there's something happening all of a sudden! More excitement chasing after the humans than just going back to the daily routine.

I remember hearing another fan theory about the Spino's motivation and it was based on that scene when the plane hits the spinosaur before crashing. As a kid I just assumed what splatters over the window of the plane was some sort of fluid from the plane but the fan theory was basically that it was blood from the spinosaur and that they hurt him by crashing into him, and that the motivation to stalk them was basically due to that.

Yeah, it kind of fits with what Grant said about the T-Rex in the first movie, "It doesn't want to be fed. It wants to hunt."

I also heard another one that theorized that the Spinosaur that first came out of the jungle and ate the guy actually got killed by the plane hitting it and the one we see for the rest of the time was actually its mate going after them in retaliation. Again a little farfetched but I don't think there's any sign of an injury on the Spino from the plane hitting it which is probably where that theory came from.

I also feel like any Jurassic Park fan theories I've seen are centered around JPIII because there isn't enough happening in that movie. It's the most barebones out of all of them.

Which is why Edwards should have been hired for Man of Steel in 2013, and Snyder should have directed Godzilla in 2014.

What did Godzilla do to you? 😭
 
If Snyder directed Godzilla '14 the action scenes would have been more prioritized but Superman still would have been mopey and morose in an Edwards-directed Man of Steel. Probably. :o
