Jurassic World 2 budget: it’s going to be big!
JA Bayona will have an even bigger toy box to play with on the new movie. While Jurassic World was made for $150m, Lost Kingdom will apparently command a budget of $260m. That’s quite the investment. We can’t say we’re surprised, though – the first film took $1.67 billion worldwide, making it the fourth most profitable movie of all time. What that extra $110m will afford Bayona, we can only imagine.
Jurassic World 2 release date: It’s got some serious Marvel competition in 2018.
Across the pond, the park will officially be open for business again on June 22, 2018, slotting into the mid-summer US release date that powered Jurassic World to box office success.
There will be a new director.
As confirmed in April, Juan Antonio Bayona will be replacing original helmer Colin Trevorrow in the director’s chair for Jurassic World 2. Bayona has previously directed 2008’s The Orphanage and 2013’s The Impossible. Most recently, he helmed the fantasy drama A Monster Calls, which stars Felicity Jones and Liam Neeson.
The sequel will be scarier than the first!
Jurassic World 2 will be scarier than its predecessor, according to Trevorrow. The filmmaker recently explained that the sequel will have a different tone under the helm of Bayona. Given Bayona’s background in horror, it makes sense that Jurassic World 2 will alter its tone a little bit and take the film to a scarier place. If it can build upon the scares of the first movie while still keeping the same adventurous feel, Universal will likely have another hit on its hands.

Actively take note of new vocabulary.
This tip is a classic one for good reason: it works! When learning, we often enjoy a new word of phrase so much that forgetting it seems impossible. But trust us, not everything sticks the first time. Whenever you hear or read a new word or expression, write it down in context: that is, in a sentence and with its meaning noted. This saves you time as you won’t return to that word and ask yourself: “What did that word/expression mean again?”
- Do you think this franchise should keep on being produced?
- Why are dinosaurs still as popular as they used to be in the 90’s?
