I'd actually like to see a remake of some of the original movies, especially the Lost World. I think the original Jurassic Park was fine but the other two got a little corny. A fourth movie would be cool as well; I can dig that.
I will definitely love to watch another Jurassic Park movie. It has been a long while now. I would love to see Jeff Goldblum back, and see his reaction once he sees himself back in the nature's wild habitat once again. I also cannot wait to see the movie "Prototype". The clip looks intense... I can't wait for August 3rd to come so I can watch the movie... Excellent news to come... The other movie I am not really big on or crazy about at all. Except for "Hotel Transylvania", since I couldn't get a glimpse of the trailer...
We don't need the old cast really from the older Jurassic Park movies, except maybe the grand children back following up on the Site B information, and possibly bringing back the character that was fanatic about Site B, and the new villian:Nedry's boss. The possibility of the Dinosaurs starting dying off due to lack of the lyosene... Despite the kids experience they actually 1) really don't want to see the animals hurt, but 2) want to help contain them back on the island. We need to go back to Site B where the dinos are less "contained" and finally meet the chameleon-like dinos the size of the velociraptors.... forgot what they were called. There's plenty of material left to use... remember velociraptors stayed away from the chameleons.
The Hotel Translyvania movie looks great - love the scene where his singing to his daughter. Hilarious!!! A definate must see on my list for sure. How so very wonderful there will be another JURASSIC PARK movie: love the Classic adventure franchise & beloved T-REX and hope the JP Cast (Jeff Goldbloom, etc.,.) will be present/IN JURASSIC PARK IV.
