The Flickering Myth Reaction to the Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom trailer

The Flickering Myth writing team reacts to the Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom trailer…

After successfully relaunching the Jurassic Park franchise in 2016 with Jurassic World, Universal Pictures is set to take us back to Isla Nublar next summer with the J.A. Bayona-directed Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, and yesterday saw the release of the very first trailer for the dino-blockbuster. Read on to find out what our writing team made of this first-look…

Tom Beasley: I struggled a little with this trailer, despite my love for all of the actors involved and for J.A. Bayona as a director. It certainly delivers in terms of visual spectacle, but the plot seems a little lazy and I’m not sure there’s enough there to mark this movie out as different to what has come before. But, on the other hand, we’re getting new dinosaur fights and I’m not one

Jurassic World 2 Trailer Is Only from First Hour of the Movie

Jurassic World 2 Trailer Is Only from First Hour of the Movie
The first trailer for Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom has finally arrived online. The trailer has received mixed reactions from fans, but there's a whole lot of action in it and it definitely helps set up the plot, which will involve a volcanic eruption on Isla Nublar and an attempted rescue mission for the dinosaurs on the island. However, as much as it looks like this trailer lays out the entire movie on a platter, that's far from the case. In fact, writer and producer Colin Trevorrow reveals that the trailer only contains footage from the first hour of the movie.

Colin Trevorrow, who directed the first Jurassic World, took to Twitter last night to make the rather unexpected reveal. A fan expressed concern that it looks as though the Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom trailer lays out all three acts of the movie, with the bulk of the action taking place in the third act,

First Trailer for ‘Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom’ Pits Dinos vs. the Volcano

They may have been extinct for 66 million years, but Jurassic World proved dinosaurs have never been more popular. With a worldwide gross well over $1.6 billion, the franchise was revived with new life, albeit with questionable quality, but things are looking a bit more promising for the follow-up, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom.

Stepping in for Colin Trevorrow is a director with a better eye for tension, setpieces, and all-around vision, J.A. Bayona, director of The Orphanage and The Impossible. As the batch of teasers for the trailer and even a behind-the-scene featurette hinted at, our first full-length preview of the film has now arrived courtesy of Universal Pictures.

Picking up a few years after the last film, and featuring the cast of Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, B. D. Wong, Toby Jones, Rafe Spall, Justice Smith, Daniella Pineda, Ted Levine, Geraldine Chaplin, James Cromwell, and, yes, Jeff Goldblum as Dr. Ian Malcolm,

First Official Trailer For Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom Stomps Into Uncharted Territory

It’s been a huge couple of weeks for Chris Pratt.

Coming hot off the show-stopping first teaser for Avengers: Infinity War, the Powers That Be over at Universal have now unleashed Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom‘s official trailer, and it steers the legendary franchise toward uncharted territory.

Headed up by Juan Antonio Bayona (A Monster Calls), who took control of the Jurassic World series in lieu of Colin Trevorrow – Trevorrow initially made tracks for Star Wars: Episode IX, but Lucasfilm ultimately chose J.J. Abrams for the gig – Fallen Kingdom has always been described as a scarier and darker spin on the tried-and-tested formula, which isn’t all that surprising given it’s coming from the man who brought us The Orphanage.

More than a decade has passed since Bayona’s big break, though, and now the Spanish filmmaker is primed to enter into Hollywood’s blockbuster scene with Fallen Kingdom.

Second Trailer Tease For Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom Bares Its Teeth

In what is perhaps Jurassic Park‘s most famous scene, two cups of water vibrate in tune with the T. Rex’s colossal footsteps. It’s textbook Spielberg, really, as the tension begins to escalate long before the grand reveal – the esteemed filmmaker adopted a similar approach to Jaws, too, given the titular shark was totally submerged for the opening 40 minutes.

And just like the thud of the oncoming Tyrannosaurus, the first teaser trailer for Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom draws near. Slated for a premiere during Thursday Night Football (December 7th) on CBS, we’ve already caught a glimpse of an erupting volcano thanks to Universal’s initial trailer tease. And today brings forth another sneak peek at Thursday’s big reveal – this time with more teeth – courtesy of director Juan Antonio Bayona.

The Orphanage filmmaker emerged from left-field to replace Colin Trevorrow in the Jurassic World hot seat – as you’ll no doubt recall,

Chris Pratt’s On The Run In Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom Teaser Trailer

What a week it’s been for Chris Pratt.

Coming hot off the show-stopping first preview for Avengers: Infinity War, the Powers That Be over at Universal have now unleashed Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom‘s official trailer teaser, giving us a far too small taste of what’s to come ahead of the full trailer’s launch this Thursday.

Headed up by Juan Antonio Bayona (A Monster Calls), who took control of the Jurassic World series in lieu of Colin Trevorrow – the director initially made tracks for Star Wars: Episode IX, but Lucasfilm ultimately chose J.J. Abrams for the gig – Fallen Kingdom has always been described as a scarier and darker spin on the tried-and-tested formula, which isn’t all that surprising given it’s coming from the man who brought us The Orphanage.

Ventana Sur: Sony Pictures Int’l Co-Producing David Victori’s Feature Debut With Ikiru Films, 4Cats

Ventana Sur: Sony Pictures Int’l Co-Producing David Victori’s Feature Debut With Ikiru Films, 4Cats
Sony Pictures International Productions, Ikiru Films and 4Cats Pictures are co-producing horror-thriller “The Pact” (“El Pacto”), the debut feature of Spanish director David Victori, recognized by Variety as a director to watch in 2012.

Victori has established himself as a master of suspense in his award-winning high-concept shorts, including “Reaction” (“Reacción”) and “The Guilt” (“La Culpa”). His short film about a father and son caught in a zero-gravity crisis on earth, “Zero,” produced by Ridley Scott and Michael Fassbender, won the YouTube World Short Film Festival in 2012.

In the words of Victori, “‘El Pacto’ has as its starting point an essential premise: What would you be capable of doing to stop the death of a loved one and what happens to someone who tries to circumvent the natural course of life?”

Location shooting for “The Pact” is underway in Barcelona and will extend for about seven weeks. Belen Rueda, who played a pivotal role in Juan Antonio Bayona’s seminal

Good-Looking But Silly, Overwrought Ghost Story ‘Marrowbone’ [San Sebastian Review]

If there’s one thing that should make us all appreciate just how difficult a high-wire act is pulled off in films like “The Others,” “The Devil’s Backbone” or indeed J.A. Bayona‘s peerless “The Orphanage,” it may well be watching “Marrowbone,” the directorial debut from “The Orphanage” screenwriter, Sergio G. Sanchez. Handsomely shot, evocatively designed, solidly cast and terribly daft, it also presents your friendly neighborhood reviewer with something of a challenge.

Tiff Review: ‘Marrowbone’ is a Convoluted Mystery from the Writer of ‘The Orphanage’

For a mystery film, Sergio G. Sánchez’s Marrowbone inspires a lot of questions, although they’re more related to what’s outside the film. Here’s a question that kept popping up in my mind: did the writer of The Orphanage – one of the more unsettling and affective horror films from this century – really make this? The family drama, ambiguously supernatural scares, and tragic undercurrent from The Orphanage are all here, but filtered through a screenplay written by someone who must have been raised by wolves. Maybe this is a different Sergio G. Sánchez making this. Maybe this impostor lied on the application form. Either way, that situation is easier to believe than almost anything in Marrowbone.

Taking place in the late 1960s, Marrowbone opens with a prologue showing siblings Jack (George MacKay), Billy (Charlie Heaton), Jane (Mia Goth), and Sam (Matthew Stagg) arrive in a Us coastal town

'Marrowbone': Film Review | Tiff 2017
Children and big, mystery-stuffed houses are hardly unusual ingredients in thrillers; they're about as common as bumps in the night. But their pairing in Marrowbone, the first feature directed by Sergio G. Sanchez, strikes a familiar and deeply satisfying chord. Set in 1969 America but filmed in Spain, it from the start recalls several other pictures made in Spain by Spanish or Mexican filmmakers: not just The Orphanage, which Sanchez wrote for director J.A. Bayona, but Alejandro Amenabar's The Others and the Spanish Civil War-set ghost stories of Guillermo del Toro. (Tellingly, Marrowbone's Alvaro Augustin has served as a producer...

San Sebastian: Film Factory Boards Fernando Franco’s ‘Dying’ (Exclusive)

San Sebastian: Film Factory Boards Fernando Franco’s ‘Dying’ (Exclusive)
Madrid — Pouncing on the second feature by one of Spain’s preeminent on-the-rise, Vicente Canales’ Barcelona-based Film Factory Entertainment has acquired international sales rights to Fernando Franco’s character-driven romantic drama “Morir” (Dying), which plays as a Special Screening at September’s San Sebastian Festival.

Morir” marks Franco’s follow-up to “La Herida” (“The Wound”) which proved one of the biggest prize-winners at the 2013’s San Sebastian, snagging a Special Jury prize and best actress for Marian Alvarez, earning Goyas for actress and best new director at the 2014 Spanish Academy Awards.

Suggesting a talent for psychological insight, “Herida” focused intensely on a young woman with borderline personality disorder. The subject of “Dying” is equally forbidding: the fear of death and how its warps a couple’s relationship, inspired by what Film Factory describes as a “sorrowful, desperate” story of the same title by Arthur Schnitzler.

“Big” Jurassic World 2 News Inbound As Frank Marshall Posts A Photo Straight From Isla Nublar

Soon after Jurassic World 2 passed the half-way point in production, Juan Antonio Bayona’s blockbuster sequel uprooted for Hawaii, where filming is expected to continue through until July 15th.

If nothing else, it’s further proof that Universal’s 2018 tentpole is fast beginning to coalesce, and that’s despite the fact that the studio has so far remained tight-lipped on story specifics and the like – no official title, no teaser trailer, nada. All of that could be about to change very soon, though, as series veteran Frank Marshall has hinted at some “big news” looming on the horizon.

First spotted by Screen Rant, the Tweet was accompanied by another set photo in which Marshall poses just outside the Hawaiian set. It’s a primordial location that’s doubling as Isla Nublar, the famous and indeed fictional isle that has hosted nine kinds of dino-related calamities since Steven Spielberg first unleashed Jurassic Park upon moviegoers back in ’93. The franchise has come an awful long way since, and in the hands of Juan Antonio Bayona, a director known for edge-of-your-seat thrillers in the vein of The Orphanage, fans can seemingly look forward to a “Spanish horror-thriller” come 2018.

Here’s that status report, courtesy of veteran producer Frank Marshall:

Isla Nublar looking good. Watch this space for some big news soon… #JurassicWorld2 @JurassicWorld pic.twitter.com/NnvfxtYwPR

Frank Marshall (@LeDoctor) June 21, 2017

Now for the real point of contention: the “big news.” Common logic dictates that Universal will reserve its first Jurassic World 2 teaser trailer for San Diego Comic-Con next month. Assuming that really is the case, it’s more likely that Marshall is referring to the sequel’s title, which may well be accompanied by the official logo. The fact that the studio has been coy about JW2‘s title tells us that it’s inherently plot-related, but chalk that up as simple conjecture for the time being.

Jurassic World 2 will be with us on June 22nd, 2018. It’ll seemingly be much scarier than the first and feature an action sequence that is “just insane.” Did we mention that we’re excited?

Character-Driven Jurassic World 2 Likened To “Spanish Horror-Thriller”

From the moment Juan Antonio Bayona was appointed at the helm of Jurassic World 2, everyone involved in Universal’s 2018 sequel – specifically the outgoing Colin Trevorrow, who vacated the director’s chair to pursue Disney’s galaxy far, far away and Star Wars: Episode IX – have spoken at length about how Bayona’s follow-up aims to be the scariest, most intense installment in the decorated series to date.

And who better to steer the seemingly nerve-shredding Jurassic World 2 toward the silver screen than J.A. Bayona? From The Orphanage to 2016 sleeper hit A Monster Calls – for the record, the Spanish filmmaker was briefly attached to direct World War Z 2 for Paramount Pictures – Bayona has already amassed an impressive body of work in a relatively short space of time, and though the shift over to Hollywood’s blockbuster scene no doubt presents challenges of its own, we’re quietly confident that the director

Jurassic World 2 will go to ‘darker places’, says Colin Trevorrow

Jurassic World director Colin Trevorrow, who is returning for the sequel in a writer and executive producer capacity for its sequel, has been speaking about Jurassic World 2, and promises that the film will go to much darker places than the first movie in the new series. J.A. Bayona (A Monster Calls) is directing the film, a director who has a hand for horror and more dramatic scenes having also worked on the likes of The Orphanage and The Impossible.

Speaking to Cinema Blend, Trevorrow said:

“J.A Bayona is very good at [creating scares]. There are things that he’ll just do with a shadow, or a rustling curtain on a wall. He’s so tapped into that kind of fear, especially the fear through the eyes of child. Which, you know, he and I are just simpatico. We may be the mirrors of each other. It is by far the most satisfying collaboration of my life.
