But no, that’s not coming until Friday. Maybe a plot will surface around then, too.
Jurassic World was bad enough as a movie, but on the plus side, new director JA Bayona has gone with a normal widescreen ratio – 2.35:1. However, for the last movie, what the hell was 2.00:1 all about, Colin Trevorrow? Spielberg chose 1.85:1 for a reason – to allow the dinosaurs to make the most of the height.
2.00:1 is far from a conventional ratio. While Tomorrowland was presented a similar ratio, and I described that in detail there along with all of the associated problems when it comes to regular cinema projection, I expect the same would’ve happened for this one, too, and I’d love to know if anyone saw it in a non-IMAX screen and are reading this, please let me know. I won’t repeat what I’ve said there as it’s pretty much the same, but overall, I would’ve chosen a 1.85:1 ratio for these films for the reason the original director gave, since dinosaurs are tall, and especially in the home when you watch it on a 16:9 TV, the taller the image, versus the width, the better.
Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom is co-written by Trevorrow and Derek Connolly, and is released in the UK on June 7th, 2018.
Cast: Bryce Dallas Howard, Chris Pratt, Jeff Goldblum, BD Wong, Toby Jones, Ted Levine, James Cromwell, Geraldine Chaplin, Rafe Spall
