Colin Trevorrow is once again talking up J. A. Bayona in a series of comments while promoting his failed and critically-assaulted The Book of Henry, which is playing now. He recently spoke with MTV News , revealing that the sequel is going to be more character-based and suspenseful that his previous installment.
“It’s just deeper, more character-based, and it definitely leans into suspense, especially in the second half.”
“It does have the big action in the middle. There’s a sequence in the middle that I’ve been watching – I mean, I watch dailies every day – but I’ve started to see stuff come together, and it’s just insane.”
It wasn’t long after Jurassic World hit theaters that Universal Pictures had confirmed that the movie was the first installment in a new Jurassic Park trilogy . At first, many people felt that they didn’t need another dinosaur movie, feeling that the novelty of seeing dinosaurs on the big screen had worn off. That’s something that Trevorrow says Bayona’s film is going to directly challenge.
“I apologize to those who thought they were never gonna need to see another Jurassic World movie because I think J.A. Bayona is gonna prove [them] wrong.”
My take: In other words, more action, better dialogue, better characters, aside from the one’s we’ve already met, and in general just a better movie altogether. Why Trevorrow doesn’t just come out and say it, I’ll never fucking know.
