Preposterous Pets - Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom - Netflix
Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom is a 2018 American science fiction adventure film and the sequel to Jurassic World (2015). Directed by J. A. Bayona, it is the fifth installment of the Jurassic Park film series, as well as the second installment of a planned Jurassic World trilogy. Derek Connolly and Jurassic World director Colin Trevorrow both returned as writers, with Trevorrow and original Jurassic Park director Steven Spielberg acting as executive producers. Set on the fictional Central American island of Isla Nublar, off the Pacific coast of Costa Rica, it follows Owen Grady and Claire Dearing as they rescue the remaining dinosaurs on the island before a volcanic eruption destroys it. Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, B. D. Wong, and Jeff Goldblum reprise their roles from previous films in the series, with Rafe Spall, Justice Smith, Daniella Pineda, James Cromwell, Toby Jones, Ted Levine, Isabella Sermon, and Geraldine Chaplin joining the cast. Filming took place from February to July 2017 in the United Kingdom and Hawaii. Produced and distributed by Universal Pictures, Fallen Kingdom premiered in Madrid on May 21, 2018, and was released in the United States on June 22, 2018. The film has grossed over $826 million worldwide, making it the third highest-grossing film of 2018. It received mixed reviews from critics, who praised Pratt's performance, Bayona's direction, its visuals, and the “surprisingly dark moments”, although many criticized the screenplay and felt the film added nothing new to the franchise, with some suggesting it had run its course. An untitled sequel is set to be released on June 11, 2021, with Trevorrow returning to direct.

During early conversations on the 2015 film Jurassic World, executive producer Steven Spielberg told director Colin Trevorrow that he was interested in having several more films made. In April 2014, Trevorrow announced that sequels had been discussed: “We wanted to create something that would be a little bit less arbitrary and episodic, and something that could potentially arc into a series that would feel like a complete story.” Trevorrow said Chris Pratt and Omar Sy might reprise their roles for the next few films and said he would direct the film if asked. Trevorrow later told Spielberg that he would only focus on directing one film in the series. In May 2015, Trevorrow announced that he would not direct another film in the series: “I would be involved in some way, but not as director.” Trevorrow felt that different directors could bring different qualities to future films. Pratt had been signed for future films in the series, as was Ty Simpkins, who portrayed Gray in Jurassic World. On June 3, 2015, Trevorrow stated that Jurassic World left many story possibilities open: “I really like the idea that this group of geneticists aren't the only people who can make a dinosaur […] when you think of the differences between Apple and PC—the minute something goes open-source, there are all kinds of entities and interests that may be able to utilize that technology.” On June 8, 2015, Jurassic World producer Frank Marshall met with Trevorrow and Universal Studios to discuss a sequel. Later that month, Trevorrow did not deny that the film could involve “dinosaur soldiers” and said the series is “not always gonna be about a Jurassic Park”, saying he felt that future films could explore the idea of dinosaurs and humans co-existing. Trevorrow also hinted that the next film may not involve the Jurassic World theme park and said he would be interested in seeing a Jurassic Park film made by one of several Spanish horror film directors, whose names he did not mention.
