Spare no expense
By Jay Hunter – 2015’s Jurassic World may have polarised critics, but with it’s incredible box-office record standing at $1.67 billion, it can’t be argued that many, many movie goers where fans. Of course, with such an impressive haul, sequels are never far behind and in the case of Jurassic World, the series is set to become a trilogy. Jurassic World director, Colin Trevorrow will return to the sequel as a writer, as the directing duties will be handed over to Juan Antonio Banoya.

We previously reported that production is set to start in February 2017 in Hawaii, and it seems that he will have a war-chest at his disposal in the form of a $260+ million budget to work with.

Compare this to the $150 million budget of the first Jurassic World and you can start to get an idea of scale. Whilst speaking to El Pais Seminal, Bayona also confirmed that the movie has a title, although it won’t be revealed until a later date.

$260 million is an eye watering number for a movie, this years Batman v Superman came in at $250 million. Only when adjusted for inflation does 2011’s Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides beat World’s $260 million cap.

Of course the danger here is that special effects overrun character development and plot, but here’s to hoping for another fun dino-outing.

Jurassic World 2 opens in U.S. theaters on June 22nd, 2018.
