Jurassic World: Dominion director talks about the future of the franchise
In an interview with Collider, the director of the upcoming Jurassic World movie talked about how the only way the franchise can continue is by going forward. He even added that starting it again would only mean a loss for the makers. He said, “This is just my own personal opinion. One of the challenges of this franchise is that to reboot it, you have to remake Jurassic Park. And I weep for whoever takes that on because that is one of the greatest movies ever made.”
He further added, “And so I think in a lot of ways, our only choice is to move forward and to expand. Because going back there and redoing Spielberg and Crichton, best of luck.” Steven Spielberg was the director of the original Jurassic Park movie that came out in 1993. It was based on Michael Crichton’s 1990 novel of the same name.
The legacy of the Jurassic Park franchise
The first movie was lauded and it was the highest-grossing film of all time till Titanic came out in 1997. It is still widely appreciated for its technical innovations. Steven Spielberg returned again with the second movie, Jurassic Park: The Lost World, in 1997. The third entry was directed by Joe Johnston and came out in 2001. All three movies were well received and the first film is even preserved in the National Film Registry.
It was followed by another, now, trilogy, Jurassic World. The first film was directed by Colin Trevorrow and it came out in 2015. It was successful too and grossed $1.6 billion. The second film, Fallen Kingdon was directed by J.A. Bayona and it grossed $1.3 billion worldwide. Now, the first film’s director is back in his chair with the third entry.
Jurassic World: Dominion comes out on June 10, 2022.
