First you hear the roar of dinosaurs… then the screams. Every few minutes, the swells of John Williams’ iconic score stir up again, and the vocal terror of thousands of families being scared by an animatronic T. rex can be heard ringing through the Universal Studios Hollywood amusement park, where Jurassic Park: The Ride remains a hugely popular attraction. What most riders don’t know is that just several hundred feet away on the movie studio’s backlot, director J.A. Bayona (A Monster Calls) is combing through footage of the latest installment in the series, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, the cover of EW’s Summer Movie Preview issue.

After seeing Steven Spielberg’s 1993 original, a young Bayona was transformed. “I remember perfectly that I felt I was watching a moment in movie history,” says the Barcelona native. “I thought from that moment on, everything you could imagine, no matter how crazy that could be, would be possible to see on screen in a realistic way. It was movie history.”

Now Bayona is poised to make his own history with Kingdom, which arrives in theaters on June 22 and is the highly anticipated sequel to 2015’s Jurassic World. That film, costarring Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard, finally opened the dinosaur theme park promised in the original film and naturally led to bloody chaos. (The film would also go on to gross more than $1.6 billion worldwide, making it the most successful installment in the series.) [Source]
