Bob Ward is back on episode 157 of the Cinephellas Podcast and interviews Executive Producer & Director of BBC’s Natural History Unit Mike Gunton and the Showrunner/Producer Tim Walker. They discuss season 2 of Prehistoric Planet, dinosaurs, and more. The five-part natural history series is now streaming on Apple TV+.
“Four years after the destruction of Isla Nublar, dinosaurs now live–and hunt–alongside humans all over the world. This fragile balance will reshape the future and determine, once and for all, whether human beings are to remain the apex predators on a planet they now share with history’s most fearsome creatures in a new Era.”
Jurassic Park was such a seminal movie for many people in the 90’s as it managed to capture imagination, thrills, and suspense in such an unexpected way thanks to the skillful direction of Steven Spielberg. It also managed to be a great one off movie but because money is a thing, Hollywood keeps wanting to do more, which is why Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom exists.
“Four years after the Jurassic World theme park was closed down, Owen and Claire return to Isla Nublar to save the dinosaurs when they learn that a once dormant volcano on the island is active and is threatening to extinguish all life there. Along the way, Owen sets out to find Blue, his lead raptor, and discovers a conspiracy that could disrupt the natural order of the entire planet. Life has found a way, again.”
