Just as we thought dinosaur fever was settling, Universal Pictures have announced that there will be a sequel to Jurassic World set to hit screens worldwide in 2018. Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard will reprise their roles, while executive producer Steven Spielberg and writer/director Colin Trevorrow will continue to helm the project.
Jurassic World, which was set 22 years after the events of the Jurassic Park trilogy, sees a genetically-modified dinosaur escape to terrorize the fictional island of Isla Nublar. Who knows what terror they’ll cook up for this one.
Since the fourth edition to the dinosaur franchise hit U.S. theaters in June, it has already achieved status as the third-highest grossing film of all-time, behind James Cameron’s Titanic and Avatar. Thus, we can certainly see the economic benefits of a sequel. Whether it’s any good, we’ll have to wait a few years to find out. In the meantime, take a look at the 10 most expensive Hollywood movies ever.
