Jurassic World 2 News + Updates

I know I haven’t posted news in a while but rest assured I’ve been keeping track of updates for the newest installment in the Jurassic Park series. 

Production started in London on January 26th

Director JA Bayona tweeted a picture of some Jurassic World hardhats, letting fans know he had started on filming at studios in London, England last month. Final filming will be done in Hawaii–a location familiar to many Jurassic Park fans. It’s rumored that some filming will be done in Wales as well–a change for the franchise, but also indicative of the more “world-wide” nature that the sequel has hinted at.


A whole slew of new actors joining the film has been released


American Horror Story alum, James Cromwell, has joined the cast in an unspecified role. Ted Levine also joins the cast–again in an unknown role. B.D Wong will also return as Henry Wu.



Hints at the sequel’s subject matter


Heavily hinted at the close of Jurassic World, animals rights appear to be the focus of the sequel. Universal Studios recently purchased three web domains: AllCreaturesHaveRights.com, AllCreaturesHaveRights.org, and IslaNublarRescueMission.com. This also follows the vein of the viral marketing of the last film, which featured a website that’s been constantly updated. 



As I get more information about the release of the film, I’ll be sure to let you guys know!

Migrants Choose Arrest In Canada Over Staying In The U.S.
A rural road in northern New York has become a magnet for migrants who no longer want to stay in the U.S. Growing numbers are stepping into Canada, knowing Mounties immediately will arrest them. People who work with immigrants in Canada say these border-jumpers would rather be arrested in Canada than live in fear of how U.S. officials might handle their cases.

Riverdale's Jughead Isn't Asexual, And That's Just Not Cool
Despite star Cole Sprouse's interest in playing the character as asexual, the show is taking a different approach - and that's a mistake.

“At that time, asexuality wasn’t something I was aware of, leading me to believe that I was alone in my experience,” Langevin explains. “Had a character I saw in pop culture identified as “asexual,’ that revelation could have prevented me years of feeling broken and alone.” 

really interesting article!

[Although, I disagree with the idea that “gay representation isn’t really an issue anymore” as there is definitely not enough yet (though I feel that the claim made here was more a result of how queer people tend to read/watch media with queer characters, so it’s easy to see good rep and not be as concerned) still, a very good read!

Donald Trump has been president for two weeks, and he is already facing dozens of lawsuits over White House policies and his personal business dealings. That’s far more than his predecessors faced in their first days on the job. The lawsuits started on Inauguration Day, and they haven’t let up.

Most of the 50-plus lawsuits filed so far relate to the travel ban on refugees and nationals from seven mostly-Muslim countries that Trump ordered on Jan. 27. They were filed in 17 different states by doctors, professors, students, people fleeing violence and Iraqis who have worked for the U.S. military. Some were detained in American airports for hours over the weekend; others were barred overseas from boarding planes bound for the U.S. Two Syrian brothers with visas to enter the country say they were turned around at Philadelphia International Airport and sent back to Damascus.

Students have been studying slavery in the U.S. for decades, so how do we keep getting it so horribly wrong? Grappling with massive, institutionalized cruelty is no easy task, especially for kids, but we owe it to American students to tell them the truth. We’ll never be able to reckon with our shared national history if we insist on sugarcoating it. Read more

  • On Thursday, unnamed sources told news site Axios that Trump gave his female campaign staffers a note: They need to “dress like women." 
  • According to the report, "women who worked in Trump’s campaign field offices — folks who spend more time knocking on doors than attending glitzy events — felt pressure to wear dresses to impress Trump.”
  • Women who heard reports of Trump’s sartorial demands were not exactly thrilled with Trump’s desire to make womenswear great again and they fire back with the hashtag #DressLikeAWoman. Read more
