While that's totally true, didn't they kind of blow their load with the ending of JW? I mean, if you're a supporter of big, epic, climactic dinosaur battles to end the film, how exactly do you top the nuttiness of the JW ending?

When all is said and done, it may end up not only feeling hackneyed and obnoxious, but also completely underwhelming, given what came before it.

Oh I agree, but I would also think Bayona and company understand that as well. It will help that the big action piece is in the middle of the film. That allows them to create something that "tops" JW, without having to compare to the final battle of the first film. I think we are getting a "raptors in the kitchen" type finale that will be incomparable to Rexy and Blue vs Indominus. I'm expecting something very suspenseful and frightening.

That would just make me angry. That might actually be the biggest troll the filmmakers could pull off xD
I'd be infuriated too. 

For me that might be the equivalent of how some of you guys felt about Rex vs Spino.

That is actually a great parallel to how we felt.

Dilophosaurus fans have asked for another Dilophosaurus in a JP film for 20 years now and it was ignored 2 times before while Jurassic World only had the symbolic hologram of one. I can not begin to imagine how they would feel if Fallen Kingdom did not feature a Dilophosaurus yet again after decades of fans asking for it, and only featured another hybrid that was just part Dilo instead of an actual Dilophosaurus.

That is what colin keeps echoing about the story. A big set piece in the middle and an intimate "monster in a box' type of scenario at the end.

That fits Volcano exploding>Indoraptor getting out at mainland mansion pretty well.

Well man finally something we agree on lol! 

But yep so far all signs are pointing to us getting the Dilo in statue form only. We have a pic of this even. Not trying to spoil you but don't get hopes high.

The thing that bothers me the most about it is that If universal or the director have no interest in the animal why continue to troll us with holograms and pictures. That makes it worse.

We fans are much more alike than we think. We all have very personal passionate desires of what should be in the movie. Nothing wrong with that. It is a very valid emotion that is kinda part of the package of being a hardcore fan.

Some really need to see more herbivores in action sequences, others need a dilophosaurus others other things. But I am so glad that everyone is able to see that we all have our fanatical desires. And there is no shame in feeling bad that the producers ignore them. It is normal to feel bad that they ignore something that is important to fans.

Not only is it sad, but it is also weird...Why would they ignore things that they know fans have asked for so long? At least dilophosaurus fans found out today what it feels like to petition for something for a decade, only for the sequel to ignore it, and when petitioned yet again and the production knowing of the petition, they still choose to ignore it.

Has anyone part of the production officially announced that Dilophosaurus is devinitively not involved in the next film? Because I'm frankly getting tired of the rumour mill being our only source of (unreliable) information.

Just keep in mind, last year a supposed Warner Bros employee claimed that the production of Wonder Woman was a mess and Patty Jenkins didn't know what she was doing. And where is that person now?

I can't imagine anybody at Universal giving any definitive information about anything related to the plot of Fallen Kingdom.

One of the things I thought about last night......is the Dilo hard to write due to the venom spitting? It seems that would make it a pretty lethal predator. Couldn't a pack of Dilos just blind the Indoraptor in 10 seconds? Maybe that's the problem with featuring the breed in any kind of big dinosaur battle.

To be fair, a leaker for Midnight's Edge also said that while it was a mess, but it was still a fixable one and with good editing, it could be a great movie, which it clearly is. My guess is that person didn't see the finished product and only saw the 'rough draft.'

Also in case we forget. The movie will 1,000 percent have Blue in it.
Hope it doesn't has too much "awesome bros" scenes btw Owen and Blue. Ugh. I can't digest this forced stuff.

You know, I'm not against little things like this. But is it too much to ask that we get to see Sorna via 'artifacts' from TLW?

Wurgh, I hate that the post-production phase basically means the end of new information until the next official release. I think I've been spoiled by the almost-daily torrent of set peeks and posts Neutral

Universal isn't even having a panel at comic con so I do not think that they will have anything to show there. Might do a giveaway thing like that one year they gave out free phone cases for JW but IDK.

Damn right we have. I would not be so surprised if some early trailer with unfinished CGI leaks out though like last time.

Idk. I know there are some collectibles going to be released at comic con.

Chronicle will show some of its new stuff at its booth.

Factory Entertainment may or may not have something

Paradise Collectibles will have something at their booth.

But that's basically table scraps. I mean, this is a sequel to a movie that not only resurrected the franchise, but on that also made over $1.6 billion dollars. And yet, Universal basically downplays it by not having a panel at Comic-Con?

To be fair, most of the major studios aren't having a presence at comic con this year. I have no idea why, it's kinda odd actually.

That and Disney already had their big reveal so they wouldn't need to have one anyway. That being said...that really is odd.

Sounds like Wu will have a bigger role in FK according to BD Wong :

Lia: It’s a Jurassic World for you. Your character Dr. Henry Wu appeared in JURASSIC PARK in 1993. In the 2015 sequel Dr. Wu was the only character to return to the “Jurassic” franchise. What was the experience then, and now? Can you share anything about JURASSIC WORLD: FALLEN KINGDOM, set for release in 2018?

BD: Then, it was frankly a little insignificant feeling, with the resounding exception of working for one wonderful day with Mr. Spielberg. Then, the character just kind of faded into the woodwork, nobody cared much about him or paid much mind to him, and that made me so sad, because he was so great in the book, and 1993 ideas about race in Hollywood kept him from being more than a run-of-the-mill Asian scientist. Then, that pendulum swung very far out and very far back…and it was a surprise when Colin Trevorrow invited me back to the Jurassic Party. And that time (JURASSIC WORLD 1)  I felt the character was a little more important to the story and established as a kind of oddly iconic character of the franchise. This time (JURASSIC WORLD 2), I felt he was even more “ensconced” in the franchise, and I could enjoy the work more. I will be interested to hear how the fans respond to the character – and what happens to him – this time!

Plot twist. He has a super secret lab somewhere under contract from Lockwood and we get a lot of scenes of him in the mansion/talking about the indoraptor

To be fair, most of the major studios aren't having a presence at comic con this year. I have no idea why, it's kinda odd actually.


It's a purely financial based decision. Comic Con has grown so much, and with that growth comes increased costs for the studios. Someone in Hollywood finally came to the realization that there isn't a single person at Comic Con who isn't already going to see their movie.

It's really sad but studios are starting to focus a lot of their marketing dollars towards social media, as that is what appears to separate successful movies from blockbusters these days. It's also a really cheap way to reach a lot of people. I've even read that when picking actors for starring roles, they are starting to take an actor's social media prescene into account before making casting decisions. I don't even participate in social media, so I don't really get it.

Sounds like Wu will have a bigger role in FK according to BD Wong :

Lia: It’s a Jurassic World for you. Your character Dr. Henry Wu appeared in JURASSIC PARK in 1993. In the 2015 sequel Dr. Wu was the only character to return to the “Jurassic” franchise. What was the experience then, and now? Can you share anything about JURASSIC WORLD: FALLEN KINGDOM, set for release in 2018?

BD: Then, it was frankly a little insignificant feeling, with the resounding exception of working for one wonderful day with Mr. Spielberg. Then, the character just kind of faded into the woodwork, nobody cared much about him or paid much mind to him, and that made me so sad, because he was so great in the book, and 1993 ideas about race in Hollywood kept him from being more than a run-of-the-mill Asian scientist. Then, that pendulum swung very far out and very far back…and it was a surprise when Colin Trevorrow invited me back to the Jurassic Party. And that time (JURASSIC WORLD 1)  I felt the character was a little more important to the story and established as a kind of oddly iconic character of the franchise. This time (JURASSIC WORLD 2), I felt he was even more “ensconced” in the franchise, and I could enjoy the work more. I will be interested to hear how the fans respond to the character – and what happens to him – this time!

OMG This is like a dream come true! 5 weeks? I'm in heaven! Can't belive my favorite character will get the screentime he deserves! I bet at least double the screentime of JW, so something around 8 minutes or more!!!!!

I'm so happy guys! SO HAPPY! cheers   bounce Very Happy Razz

Also, I really feel that BD Wong trully cares about Henry Wu and his arc, he read the novel so he knows how awesome this character is. Loved to hear that he's interested to hear what we'll think about Henry Wu in JW FK. Also, I think he probably dies, unfortunatelly. I'm expecting Indoraptor to kill him. But at the same time I don't think if he meant a death by that line? Who knows.

If he dies I'll get the names of the people who made it happen. Just kidding.  Laughing

I AM SO HAPPY! NOTHING STOPS MY HYPE NOW, BABY!


And omg, I just realized: He'll have more screentime than Malcolm.  Shocked

Better than that, only Wu escaping again. Muahahahaha  Twisted Evil

I'm happy Wu has more screentime, too. Finally, he's a significant character as he was in the novel.

I knew u would be happy & so am I, Wu is such an interesting character, we really do need more of characters like him in the franchise & yes I think he will die, probably from the Indoraptor & they may even adopt his death scene straight from the novel, but instead it'll be by the Indoraptor, not one of the normal Raptors!

Deaths I think will happen.

1 by Blue
1 by Mosa
1 by Rexy
2 By Indoraptor (Wu and Lockwood?)

Whether it be Indoraptor or Velociraptor, I'd like his death to mirror the novel. Maybe it's morning in the mansion, towards the end of the film, and our characters are stuck in a room with a glass roof. The dinosaurs are slowly breaking through. The characters escape just in time, but Wu doesn't make it. Obviously they can't show the part where the raptors juggle his intestines, but that could be implied by Justice turning his head to see something horrible.

Hey guys, TommyH here with another Jurassic World 2 update. Today I want to talk about the posssibility of argentinosaurus vs spinosaurus in Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom. Now argentinosaurus is a really cool dinosaur, it's really big, it lived in what is now modern-day current Argentina. It ate plants. I personally think it would be really cool if argentinosaurus fought spinosaurus or possibly a plesiosaurus in Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom. Plesiosaurus lived underwater, it ate fish, and what we know is that so did the spinosaurus, it also ate fish in the water. So let me know what you guys think, would you want to see argentinosaurus vs spinosaurus vs plesiosaurus in Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom? Please subscribe for more news and updates on Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom.

I mean no offense but how is that a JW2 update? 

Also I disagree. I think fights are best left out of the series (especially involving Spino).
And it's pretty much guaranteed we won't see Spino in this film.

Exactly. That was a parody of this YouTuber named Tommy H who puts out these 3-minute videos where he talks about all this implausible garbage to lure 11-year-olds.

I know his content about the Jurassic Park movies is sometimes a little out there but I have to point out that his videos are very very popular especially the ones about potential dinosaur VS dinosaur fights in Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom.

Wich does kinda show that dinosaur VS dinosaur fights in general are much more often than not very popular among fans.

Also I would not say that he is just trying to lure 11 year olds. Sometimes he has given well thought arguments on other JP topics like the unpopularity of JP3, or actually discussed legitimate news with the fans like the return of Rexy, the return of Malcolm and stuff like that.

There aren't many Jurassic Park news channels on YouTube that receive a large amount of views. It's a shame.

I'll say this. If there is a dino on dino fight it will probably bee the new hybrid vs either Blue or the Rex.

Still no hints of any other T Rex other than Rexy?

I'd say very little chance of that. Looks like the movie (dino wise) will take place on Nublar and then the manor. Unless he has a Rex for sale there I doubt it unfortunately.

So, when can we expect for the first merchandise pics to leak? I believe for JW it was sometime in late 2014?

It's not all that surprising considering how we didn't get much in the dead period. Add in how Universal sat on most of the money it made from Jurassic World instead of expanding it via cartoon shows and that one comic book that we're STILL waiting for, and this is the inevitable result.

Sometime in the fall or early winter sounds right to me.
