With the immense success of the first Jurassic World movie, the sequel Jurassic World 2 is likely going to have a bigger budget.
As told by Cinema Blend, Jurassic World brought in more than $1.6 billion in local and international box office sales that is more than the film’s initial capital of $150 million. So it is safe to say that the sequel’s budget will be raised, although the exact amount has yet to be determined.
Complex states that the bigger sum of money the sequel might be getting would make Jurassic World 2 one of the most expensive movies ever made. A big portion of it would likely go to the CGI and the practical effects needed for bringing the dinosaurs to life on the big screen. The sequel to Jurassic World will most likely make the Top 5 most expensive movies, ahead of them would be Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End with $300 million followed by both John Carter and Tangled with a $260 million budget and Spider-Man 3 with a $258 million budget.
However, the downside of having a bigger allowance would mean that Jurassic World 2 will have to get more box office sales than its predecessor. It is all down to speculation at this point.
Meanwhile, J.A. Bayona is tasked to direct the sequel in which Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard are confirmed to reprise their roles as Owen Grady and Claire Dearing. Colin Trevorrow may not be directing, but he is involved in co-writing the script alongside Derek Connolly.
It is uncertain whether or not Jurassic World 2 will prove to be just as successful as the first one, as more funds do not always mean a better movie. More updates to come so it is best to stay tuned.
Jurassic World 2 is expected to premiere on June 22, 2018. So keep following for more updates.
