Colin Trevorrow Says Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom Is Part of a Trilogy

Colin Trevorrow Says Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom Is Part of a Trilogy
From Gizmodo - December 27, 2017

How will Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom set the stage for a unified, Jurassic Park trilogy? Does a tongue-wagging Satan really factor into the latest season of the X-Files? See Lin Shaye finally gets top billing in an Insidious film! All this, plus a plea from Luca Guadigno kindly asking you not to compare his Suspiria remake to the iPhone X! Watch your step, youve just crossed over into Morning Spoilers!

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom

In a recent Youtube interview with Sebas Tabany, Colin Trevorrow revealed the new Jurassic Park doesnt end on a cliffhanger, per se, but is designed for people to want to know whats going to happen next.

At the end of this movie, its not a cliffhanger, but its designed for people to want to know whats going to happen next, whereas the earlier Jurassic Park movies had pretty clear definitive endings. They were much more episodic. In working with Derek Connolly, my co-writer, we were also thinking about where it was gonna go in the future.

Trevorrow also states the entire Jurassic World enterprisewas conceived as a trilogy.

I remember telling Steven [Spielberg] even while we were making the first movie. This is the beginning. Here is the middle. And heres the end of the end. This is where we want to go. I feel like that kind of design is crucial to a franchise like this if you really want to bring people along with you and make sure they stay interested. It needs to be thought through on that level. It cant be arbitrary, especially if we want to turn this into a character-based franchise with people who you lean in to follow what theyre going to do.

Solo: A Star Wars Story

An ambiguously authentic promotional poster has surfaced on Licensing Russia, giving us our alleged first look at Emilia Clarke, Alden Ehrenreichs Han, and Donald Glover as Lando. However, Disney has since reached out to multiple outlets to state the poster was not created by them, and that they are mystified by its origins.

Shazam!

Zachary Levi is now in Toronto and ready to begin filming.

Suspiria

In a recent interview with The Guardian, Luca Guadigno states its been his dream to remake Suspiria since he was fourteen years old.

Every movie I make is a step inside my teenage dreams, and Suspiria is the most remarkably precise teenage megalomaniac dream I could have had. I saw the poster when I was 11 and then I saw the film when I was 14, and it hit me hard. I immediately started to dream about making my own version of it. So in a way it makes me smile when I hear people say, How dare you remake Suspiria. Typical commerce-driven mentality. I was just a boy who had seen a movie that made him what he became. So thats how I am approaching it: a homage to the incredible, powerful emotion I felt when I saw it.

Do you stop watching Tristan und Isoldes mise-en-scne because Patrice Chreaus was so incredible? No, there will be a new one that will be fantastic. How many Hamlets have we experienced in our lifetimes that were fantastic? Human art is not about inventing originality, its about finding a new point of view. Capitalism wants to tell us something new is always coming; its not true. The iPhone X is the same as 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1. Its the great marketing qualities of Apple that make us want to buy this stuff. But its the same! Do you need a 10 after you got the 8? You dont.
