Michael Crichton’s Jurassic Park is one of my favorite “adult” (as compared to “YA”) books. Naturally, I loved the Jurassic Park movie, which was directed by my favorite director. That definitely helped.
Three movies later, we now have Jurassic World. I’m just hoping it brings the excitement and thrilling pace that the first movie did. The second movie had its moments, but many found it lacking, and the third movie was better, but still not as good as the first.
I can hope this one at least does as well as the third, but hopefully better. And as much as I loved Chris Pratt as Peter “Star-Lord” Quill in Guardians of the Galaxy, his character in here probably won’t be challenging the villain to a dance off.
The movie stars Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard (The Help), Vincent D’Onofrio (Daredevil, Law & Order: Criminal Intent), Omar Sy (X-Men: Days of Future Past), Jake Johnson (New Girl), and BD Wong (reprising his Jurassic Park role as Henry Wu). It looks like the two young protagonists who will be fending for their lives will be played by Nick Robinson (Melissa and Joey, The Fifth Wave) and Ty Simpkins (Insidious).
