If the trailer ends with an animatronic T-Rex roaring into the camera, I’ll see it.

It will not. 

 

Idiot.

post #203 of 428
God damn freeman. I said god damn.

But seriously, wouldn’t it be amazing if that happened?
post #204 of 428

I did the Jurassic Park ride once in California.  When the animatronic T Rex roared at our boat before the big drop it was pretty cool I guess.

 

I was like nine.

I tried reading Crichton's book recently. Gave up after half an hour.

 

His writing is so dry and entire pages filled with theories just pulled me away. Maybe i'll try again later this week.

I listened to the entire audiobook.

 

Lex the girl in the audiobook...

 

Lets just say the movie is way way way way way WAY better than the book.  But there is some fun set pieces they could have stolen from the first book for Jurassic World. 

post #207 of 428
I re-read the book every year or so. Lex sux.
post #208 of 428

I think the novel is great.

 

The movie is better.

post #209 of 428
I love the book, but Lex is insufferable.
post #210 of 428

Really cannot stress enough how much Lex sucks.  It's almost like Mikey went out of his way to shit on a niece he hates or something.  It's something else. 

post #211 of 428

She knows Unix though.

 

She knows it. 

post #212 of 428

Yeah, I won't attempt to defend the Lex of the novel.  The decision to make Lex the older sister for the movie was absolutely the right one.

It'll end with an animatronic Vincent D'Onofrio roaring into the camera. I'll see it.

post #214 of 428

This is going to suck.

I'm looking forward to it!

I'm looking forward...to shitting on it repeatedly in the inevitable 200-page Post-Release Thread!

post #217 of 428

This sequel needs an antagonist dino that is scary and evokes hatred.....I suggest Turkey T-Rex:

Are we talking Dinosaurs for Hire style Dinos with guns, or Dinoriders style Dinos with Guns?

I've said as much upthread, but giving the dinosaurs guns, human-dinosaur hybrids, dinosaur-hybrids, etc. - these ideas stop the film from being Jurassic Park.

 

I can't articulate why, but it's probably something to do with suspension of disbelief. The Indominus Rex stretched it to breaking point, but Jurassic World sort-of held. If InGen and their playing God becomes the focus of the story, rather than just a means of putting the plot in motion, it'd very quickly start to turn into Aliens... or, more likely, Prometheus (lighting flashes, horses rear and whinny).

The director is the goods. The Impossible and A Monster Calls are great. I have faith.
post #224 of 428
So wait, WHERE is it taking place?
post #225 of 428
Looks like an abandoned Jurassic World/ Isla Nublar.

Basically The Lost World again.

That's ok.

Probably because Jurassic Park was all about making you believe these where real animals, and human/dinosaur hybrid soldier running around with guns kinds of flys in the face of that.

Then again I don't really see anything wrong with a sequel not being Jurassic Park either. Jurassic Park is Jurassic Park, that John Sayles' Jurassic Park 4 would have been 10 years after Jurassic Park, and after two sequels what weren't Jurassic Park either.

What would that be, like Marvel's Brute Force, but with dinosaurs?
post #230 of 428

Based on the clips it looks like they've adjusted Owen to be more of a standard Chris Pratt Character than he was in Jurassic World.

Oh I know. I just no longer care about this franchise, and think a dual-wielding raptor is the next logical step.

Man, the dinosaurs toys from Dino-riders were awesome. So awesome, the Smithsonian asked the company that mad ethem for just the dinos (sand lasers and humans/aliens) to sell in their museum stores

“Shut up and help me reload” is gold, Jerry. GOLD.
post #234 of 428

Cinematography looks better than Jurassic World.

 

Not sure how there's even a plot at this point. Stop.fucking.going.back.to.the.island.

I still abide by my "The Island of Dr Wu" idea.

post #236 of 428

How is it that across the world we keep dangerous animals in zoos with zero problem but these people keep letting their freaking dinosaurs loose every year or two?

post #237 of 428

Yeah, that's the thing about The Lost World that bugs me. The idea that if the dinosaurs get out it'll be the end of the world or something.

 

They don't infect people, like zombies. They don't infect people and breed super fast like xenomorphs. They're not going to cause a nuclear war.

 

So if they can just be killed with conventional weapons, what exactly is the threat? The first movie is situational danger. There's never a, "We have to contain this or the whole world is doomed!" 

post #238 of 428
It's more about leave thesse animals alone. They require our absence, not our help. Mixing them in human cities is just dumb.

I think the concern would not be for the end of the world, but for the possibility that a population could breed in the jungles of Central or South America.  Very remote locations.  It would be very difficult to go in there in an organized way and completely wipe out the population, yet the dinosaurs would still pose a danger to the locals.

 

The first novel gets heavily into the implications of what could happen if dinosaurs got off the island (in fact, when the novel starts, some dinosaurs have already gotten to the mainland).

Bruh...I wanted that T-Rex toy so bad. 

post #241 of 428

I wonder if at some point, Universal will give the OK to take the franchise into "Aliens" territory, and let the humans fight back with actual weapons. The series is getting really repetitive with the "dinosaurs attack, humans run" level of action sequences.

 

Not that I want that. It's just if they're going to keep making these, they're going to have to change the formula a bit.

post #242 of 428

Technology fails to a primal world is one of the running themes of Jurassic. Don't expect that to change.

post #243 of 428
The series is also on the side of these are animals that need to be respected. Hell, Vince Vaughn puts everybody in danger by removing Roland Tembo's bullets, and Vaughn is seen as the hero.

The raptors might have been the "villains" of the first and the hybrid in the new one, but the dinosaurs will always be the "heroes" of these films. We don't want to see the T-Rex die.
post #244 of 428

So apparently the story is a volcano erupts on Isla Nublar and Claire convinces Owen to go back to rescue the dinos from it.

...Huh.

post #245 of 428

That sounds fine, but seems to lack human villains; I mean, how about if at the same time a NGO tries to saves the dinos, a group of rich trophy hunters illegally on the island is also caught when the volcano erupts, forcing both groups to collaborate to survive?

post #247 of 428
Still curious to see how they use Ian Malcolm in this one.
post #248 of 428
The volcano seems to be them finally using the subplot from the first book of looking for raptor eggs.
post #249 of 428
How about all those poor dinosaurs on Site B? They still ok?

I like that Baryonyx still. The lava on the other hand...
