After the first trailer for the unauthorized sequel to "Jurassic World," I thought I had it all figured out. It was going to be some kind of rescue mission movie because of a volcano on the island. I thought that was going to be the story. Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard running around a dinosaur island trying to save them.
After this second trailer, that's clearly not the whole story.
This is going to sound bat-shit insane. But the original idea for "Jurassic Park 4" was going to be about a mercenary going to the island to steal some DNA to give it to a shady corporation that has been designing humanoid miniature dinosaurs who could talk and shoot guns. The said mercenary would then lead a team of these humanoid miniature dinosaurs and they would save children and kill drug dealers. Yes, that was literally the story idea for "Jurassic Park 4." Can you even imagine it? I don't know if that idea would have worked, but a piece of me really, really wish it got made. You can find script reviews and production concept art for the idea if you dig in on the internet hard enough.
I bring that up because it looks like they are borrowing some of the ideas from that idea for "Jurassic Park 4" and incorporating it into "Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom." There's a shady organization and they are creating these killer dinosaurs for...well, whatever reason. Sure, there are no dinosaurs carrying guns and looking like us quite yet. But, is that on the horizon? Who knows. "Jurassic World" was more of the same, and I am hoping for a new revitalization to the franchise.
