Battle At Big Rock: Jurassic World short film premiering this Sunday on FX
Jurassic World franchise writer and director Colin Trevorrow has announced that the mysterious new Jurassic World short film, Battle At Big Rock, will be premiering on Sunday, September 15, on FX. You can check out the full poster now for the project in the gallery below!
Details on the short film are being kept under wraps, but Trevorrow shared that Battle At Big Rock stars André Holland (Moonlight), Natalie Martinez (End of Watch), Melody Hurd (Fatherhood), and Pierson Salvador (NOS4A2). It has not yet been confirmed when the short film takes place, but it will likely serve as a story following Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, which ended with dinosaurs once again roaming the earth, and giving fans a tease as we wait for Jurassic World 3 to release in 2021.
The short film was co-written by Trevorrow and Emily Carmichael (Pacific Rim Uprising, The Black Hole), with music by Amie Doherty and Larry Fong serving as the cinematographer.
Trevorrow most recently served as a co-writer on the upcoming Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker film, which will be released on December 20. His follow-up projects include Jurassic World 3 and the sci-fi comedy Intelligent Life, directed by Rebecca Thomas.
Jurassic World 3 will be directed and co-written by Carmichael and Trevorrow, who is returning to executive produce the project alongside Steven Spielberg. In June, star Bryce Dallas Howard hinted that the original stars from the first film, Jurassic Park, could be making a return in the next installment of the epic franchise. The rumor has not yet been confirmed, but Jeff Goldblum’s cameo in Fallen Kingdom could easily open the door for his character, Dr. Ian Malcolm, to return once more alongside Sam Neill and Laura Dern.
