After becoming the third highest grossing movie of all time yesterday, Universal Pictures and Amblin Entertainment have officially announced a follow-up to Jurassic World is set for release on June 22, 2018 and that stars Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard will return.
Producer Frank Marshall once again joins Spielberg in leading the team of filmmakers for the next chapter in the franchise. The film will be written by Jurassic World’s director, Colin Trevorrow, and Derek Connolly. Spielberg will be joined by Trevorrow as executive producer on the film.
Playing now in 3D, 2D and IMAX theaters, and having grossed over $1.5 billion at the global box office., Jurassic World offers a terrifying sci-fi adventure set 22 years after the events of Steven Spielberg’s original 1993 Michael Crichton adaption, Jurassic Park. According to Trevorrow, a huge part of what sparked his take on the blockbuster franchise was the image of a teenager texting, unimpressed with the T. Rex behind the glass in front of him.
