While technically a couple weeks old, seems like something that'll we should continue to discuss.

I've never seen Bayona's work, his upcoming film looks interesting, and I've heard lots of praise on some of his previous stuff. I'm pretty happy a horror director is getting a shot though. I know Universal has limits, but I hope he is allowed to push them to give us some terrifying scenes.

IMO, the guy gets Jurassic Park more than Trevorrow ever did. Trevorrow wanted cool dinosaurs all over the place. Bayona wants a story and to bring the terror back that permeated the novels. It would be nice for Jurassic Park to return to the more teen/adult demographic that were the novels and first two movies. I've also noticed Bayona seems more interested in sharing his process. He's more straightforward than Trevorrow. He talks about what he wants to do and how he's going to do it, rather than sending cryptic single worded tweets with images of irrelevant video games. Bayona is very good at atmospheric movies too, and it looks like he's bringing in a lot of his regulars, which should bode well for JP5.

Best director we have had for the franchise since Spielberg I feel. Better fit than Johnston & Trevorrow.

Who's keen to see 'A Monster Calls' before then? It's looking really good.

A Monster Calls looks like a great movie at this point, and I hear he's directed episodes of Penny Dreadful, a show which my brother says is amazing. From what I can see, the guy understands atmosphere and that is incredibly important in Jurassic Park and ultimately a reason why JW didn't succeed and feeling like a Jurassic Park movie.

I'm very excited for "A Monster Calls" also, looks similar to "Pans Labyrinth".

See, I completely agree with everything you said, which is why I'm still very concerned, because Trevorrow and Connolly are back for the screenplay. My only hope is that they took the criticisms to heart and actually tried to learn from the experience, and/or the studio gives Bayona enough leeway to propose script changes should he have any significant concerns.

Having watched The Orphanage and The Impossible, it's clear Bayona knows how to create atmosphere and suspense while never sacrificing the story. Despite my doubts, I hope they give him the power to do that here.

This. 100x this. Also, loved The Orphanage. This bodes really well for JW2.

Hope he knows what to do and has more freedom (something I doubt he'll have).

Its strange to think that even though Bayona is a highly respected director, not a lot of people outside of our fan community really see his addition as any kind of good news, they just think he'll just be another "director for hire" and just keep pushing the franchise into even more outrageous and nonsensical territory like human/dino hybrids of militarized dinosaurs.

If JW2/JP5 is a success with fans and critics (and not just kinda divisive) what becomes of Trevorrow in retrospect? I still believe the guy deserves a little respect for getting the series back on the rails, but with a potentially more thoughtful and suspenseful Jurassic film on the way, will he just be remembered as say "Joe Johnston 2.0" rather than "Spielberg's protege"?

I have seen some hype surrounding Bayona being the director, but i expected more. I guess it is because he is not so well known. People just seem to distracted by marvel and star wars, prob doesnt help that this film is not coming out in a while.
