A t. rex.

Remember the novel took place in the 80s.
It was even worse then the crap the film proved wrong.

This has probably been suggested before, but hear me out.

We need an HBO miniseries that is a faithful retelling of the Novel. It would basically be a version of Jurassic Park that is longer, more violent and darker.

Would Samuel L Jackson still play the guy who does the thing?

Aside from Nedrys death the book isn't violent. And of course it's describe in more detail that's what books do.

Outside of a few scenes I'm one of the few people who didn't like the book.

I’ll meet you half way on the last sentence, I like the book, but I think the movies are better.

I honestly wanna see the "Red Rex" from the novel get some type of recognition elsewhere. I know it was rumored in Fallen Kingdom's early days but still doesn't have to be movies! Game, TV show, whatever, just gimme it!

Outside all the scientific/technical themed chapters (which could easily be cut and not hardly effect the story) the novel did almost everything better. The ending is more dynamic in the movie but at the same time pretty ridiculous and somewhat corny when you think about it (the whole movie is in some ways).

SO someone aparrently nailed the title for JW3 on Twitter. Trevorrow said it himself, although he never specified which one. He also specified that it's not being named Extinction and has also stated that

Yes, I have. Multiple times in fact.
Its a mature read, but it's not this ultra dark and violent book people seem to be making it out to be.

Jake Johnson and Omar Sy are set to reprise their roles from Jurassic World. I'd love if they could bring Julianne Moore back too. They need to bring back at least one TLW character.

Thank god for Omar. Always found it weird how the other dude who trained the raptors just.....dropped off the face of the Earth.
also, I found him way more charismatic then Chris Pratt has been in either of the films

Jake's fine. Like him better in other stuff but glad to have him. He was supposed to be in FK in Franklin's place so interested to see how he AND Franklin will work out.

Also, big yes for the TLW cast member. Maybe we could have Nick cameo for the support of a pro dino group? or have Kelly join the main cast? TBH, I wouldn't even mind a cameo by the Kirbys

Does anyone here know if this coming third one is the end of a trilogy - and maybe the end of the film series?

Supposedly just the end of a trilogy. Then the franchise is gonna take another 10 or so year rest before it comes back again.

Heard it's the supposed end of the whole series but with enough wiggle room for future entries.

Remember, "no one's ever really gone" :lol:

They probably don't want to have the children crying. Dinosaurs appeal to kids and to see them die again would devastate them.

That's still no excuse to just let them walk around all over the place. It would be one thing if they were at places were dinosaurs were sighted before like the Congo Basin. But all over the world? That's just bad storytelling and braindead logic right there.

It'd also be the same reason neither Godzilla nor Kong will die or kill each other since to the audience they're the heroes in their eyes and they don't like to see heroes kill each other like Stark vs Rogers hence the likely team up we'll probably be seeing in the film. :-x
