Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom Short Film Sequel Battle at Big Rock Now Online and its BEAUTIFUL!
Jurassic World director Colin Trevorrow recently shared a new short film entitled Battle of Big Rock that also serves as a sequel for Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom which features humans and dinosaurs and the tension that comes along living in a world where these two creatures co-exist.
Colin Trevorrow revealed “Battle at Big Rock” was filmed in secret on the Powercourt Estate in Ireland back in 2018. He wrote it with Emily Carmichael (Pacific Rim: Uprising), his writing partner on the upcoming Jurassic World 3, which — according to Trevorrow — will continue to explore the aftermath of the dinosaurs’ release at the end of Fallen Kingdom.
This movie is set up one year after the events of “Fallen Kingdom” with dinosaurs roaming around the world and causing a lot of trouble whether it be a roadtrip ruined by a stegosaurus and in this main story, a camping site becoming a staging point for a classic fight between a triceratops and a bipedal meat-eating predator.
This was such a nice surprise because we need to be reminded that there’s still a new Jurassic World movie coming soon with Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard still in it. And despite the negative criticism about how “fallen Kingdom”, this new short film helps remind us that the concept WAS good. You just need good production and creative teams to flesh it out. I mean the symetry alone for this and the foreshadowing in a few seconds really help made the story better.
Like I love how this scene with the Triceratops family against the Allosaurus…
Quickly turned into this with the human mom and dad going against the Allosaurus despite being obviously underpowered and ill-equipped.
We also get a deus ex machina in the form of that crossbow that was mentioned earlier.
I dunno, I’m not sure whether thats considered as such a plot device, but the point remains, it was very convenient to have appeared in the short film.
Still, this was such a great film. I loved everything about it, the terror that it evoked especially now that I’m a parent and the sheer carnage that the dinosaurs placed in what should have been a tranquil and peaceful camping ground.
Also if this is where Jurassic World 3 will be going, I’m totally down for that. I just wish somebody actually made an effort and took out that Mosasaurus before it breeds more monsters…
