‘Jurassic World 2’: Why It’s Pretty Cool That Bryce Dallas Howard Will Be Back.

Universal officially announced a sequel to Jurassic World yesterday, right as the film surpassed The Avengers to become the third-biggest worldwide box-office champion of all time.The pair will reprise their roles as Velociraptor expert and trainer Owen Brady and theme park operations manager Claire Dearing in the fifth Jurassic Park film, reported Variety.This year’s season started on a hopeful note, with Charlize Theron eclipsing Tom Hardy in Mad Max: Fury Road, and becoming the film’s true action hero.

Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard will return in the next movie, which will see Steven Spielberg serve as an executive producer and Jurassic World director Colin Trevorrow write the script. The untitled film (which I will be referring to as Jurassic World 2 for convenience) will be produced by Steven Spielberg and Frank Marshall, with a screenplay by Colin Trevorrow, and Derek Connolly. What followed in its wake hasn’t been terrible – by Hollywood standards – with the female-led Spy, Trainwreck and Pitch Perfect 2 all making loads of cash. Jurassic World is set 22 years after the events of Jurassic Park on the fictional island of Isla Nublar, the world’s only real life dinosaur theme park.

The bespoke bike, ridden by Chris’ character as he raced alongside Raptors, has already attracted 46 bids and is currently at 16,750 Australian dollars (£7,952). Jurassic World beat them all at the box office, recently becoming the third highest-grossing film of all time – with a just-announced sequel in the works. When DNA engineers go a step too far to create a dangerous dinosaur that could wipe out the island (no thanks to greedy corporate sponsorship), Chris Pratt’s dinosaur handler character Owen saves the day.

Proceeds from the sale of the bike, which will also include a certificate of authenticity, will go to The Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride, an annual motorcycle event aimed at raising funds to help prostate cancer research. The sequel sees Universal building on its box office success this year, with the studio’s Fast and Furious 7 also becoming the fifth highest grossing film in movie history. There are only three Scramblers customised for the film – one was presented to Chris as a gift, the second is displayed at Triumph’s headquarters in the UK and the third is the one being auctioned.

Audiences expecting Pratt to take center stage in Jurassic World were then no doubt surprised to discover that Howard’s character, Claire, propels much of the action. It’s largely thanks to Claire’s lofty aspirations that the film’s chief villain, the Indominus Rex, even exists, and it’s Claire who forces Pratt’s raptor tamer to venture deep into the park to rescue her nephews, thus setting in motion most of Jurassic World’s action set pieces. When a male-centric movie does well and spawns a sequel, it is all-but-certain that the male lead returns, but it is not always a guarantee that the female lead will return.

Even when the film somewhat revolves around a central romance as its primary narrative function (Mission: Impossible II and Mission: Impossible III), the next chapters forget about the prior relationship or shapes themselves into narrative pretzels in order to justify said character’s exclusion this time around. It would be unthinkable for 22 Jump Street to proceed without Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill, but Brie Larson not returning was accepted without a second glance, with Jonah Hill trading her in for Amber Stevens West.

The original films built their first movies partially around a lead male character becoming mature enough to win the hand of the respective female lead. Megan Fox would have made it through three Transformers movies instead of just two had Steven Spielberg not allegedly taken offense at her jokingly comparing Michael Bay to Hitler. It was all-but-preordained that Linda Fiorentino would not return for Men in Black II, that Courtney Cox would not return for Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls or that Cody Horn would not return for Magic Mike XXL.

Even the narrative continuity of the first film was not enough to justify swapping out one attractive young woman for another the second time out, as Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me and Ted 2 prove. Starting in 2001, with Harry Potter, the Lord of the Rings, and (over the next two years) Spider-Man and Pirates of the Caribbean, we started seeing explicitly connected sagas where basically everyone came back. The Marvel films have mostly continued this positive trend, with Tony Stark’s relationship with Pepper Potts extending towards three Iron Man movies and one Avengers film and Natalie Portman returning for at least the first Thor sequel. It would have been just as easy, with little financial detriment, to merely bring back Chris Pratt and team him up with another attractive young actress.
