According to Universal Pictures, Jurassic World is getting a sequel, which will be released in 2018.

The news was revealed after the fourth movie in the dinosaur franchise made $1.5 billion around the world.

Jurassic World’s sequel will be released in June 2018.

The movie, which is a partial sequel to Steven Spielberg’s Jurassic Park, has become the third highest-grossing film in history behind James Cameron’s Titanic and Avatar.Jurassic World sequel release date

The sequel will see Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard return, along with Steven Spielberg as executive producer and Jurassic World director Colin Trevorrow writing the script.

An official title for the sequel and a director have yet to be announced.

Jurassic World was set 22 years after the events of Jurassic Park and sees a genetically-modified dinosaur escape to terrorize the fictional island of Isla Nublar.

The movie, co-produced with Legendary Pictures, made more profit than expected to achieve the largest opening weekend in movie history with $524 million at the global box office.

The three original Jurassic Park movies were the 1993 original, The Lost World: Jurassic Park from 1997 and 2001’s Jurassic Park III.


Steve Jobs biopic will be made by Universal Pictures after Sony’s departure from the project last week.

The studio is reported to have paid more than $30 million for the title, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

Michael Fassbender is to play Steve Jobs in the film, based on Walter Isaacson’s biography of the late Apple co-founder.

The real-life drama will be directed by Danny Boyle, from a script by fellow Oscar-winner Aaron Sorkin.

The studio has not explained why it pulled out, though it had reportedly struggled to fit the film into its schedule.

Director David Fincher was initially set to direct but pulled out of talks in April.

A number of big-name actors have also been attached to the film, among them Leonardo DiCaprio and Christian Bale.

Steve Jobs was a charismatic figure and a master at presenting Apple’s latest products. But his career took dramatic turns.

After founding Apple with Steve Wozniak in the late 1970s, Steve Jobs was driven out of the firm in a boardroom coup in the 1980s.

A decade later he was bought back when Apple ran into trouble and presided over an era when it became the most valuable US company and producer of the highly successful iPhone.

Steve Jobs died in October 2011 at the age of 56 after a long battle with pancreatic cancer.
