As is always the case with successful films in this day and age (Jurassic World grossed over a billion dollars in 2015), much is expected of the upcoming sequel to Jurassic World. You can always tell just how successful a film series is by how much merchandise is out there and the Jurassic Park franchise is certainly racking up an impressive amount of merch points with boards games, online casino games and of course the obligatory mugs and t-shirts. However, with so little information being released by the studio, what do we actually know about the film which is is being pitched as the ultimate box office hit of 2018?
Most information at present is based pretty much on conjecture – apart from knowing that it will be released on 22nd June 2018, we can only create a likely story by combining information garnered from the crumbs we are thrown from the scriptwriters’ table, and what we have already seen in the previous films. In Jurassic World, John Hammond’s theme park wasn’t looking too successful to say the least, so perhaps the sequel will steer away from this plot line and race headlong into something even more exciting. If we follow possible leads, namely those left by the character Commander Vic Hoskins, whose last moments were spent attempting to ensure dinosaur DNA could be used to create hybrid dinosaurs to be used in wars, we could predict one possible storyline for the much anticipated sequel.
More Films to Come
Universal studio’s Chair, Donna Langley has said there will be at least two more Jurassic movies, which gives scope for an epic extended storyline to be spread over at least three films, or are we potentially going to be looking at prequels here? Never say that studios don’t squeeze every last drop of lifeblood from a franchise – maybe they’ll do both. While we wait for these questions to be answered, we can always turn to the merchandise that is available to calm our cravings for all things Jurassic.
