Brace yourselves, summer is coming. For some movie fans, this is the time of year to get super-excited about the return of your favourite franchises, only to be disappointed when we see the results (more often than not). The first Jurassic World wasn’t to everyone’s taste, but it was a smash hit at the box office. It had dinosaurs after all! In this final trailer for the sequel, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, there are dinosaurs (stay calm) but there’s also a message. That message? Humans are worse than dinosaurs no matter how many teeth they have.
This latest trailer gives a lot more story insight into the Jurassic World sequel, perhaps even too much. As before, we see that Owen and Claire (Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard) are sent to the old park to save as many dinosaurs as they can before the island’s volcano erupts. There is, however, a hitch. It seems that their humanitarian mission has a sinister purpose as the One Percenters seek to bid on their own private dinosaur armies.
It also looks scarier too! Probably in no small part thanks to director J.A. Bayona (The Orphanage, A Monster Calls, Penny Dreadful). There are lots of scenes in the trailer featuring dinosaurs run amok, but none seem as scary as the so-called “Indoraptor”, another made to order dinosaur similar to the Indominus Rex in Jurassic World Part One. The scariest of all though? Jeff Goldblum as Ian Malcolm and his chilling line reading of “Welcome to Jurassic World.” Life will find a way, so beware…
Here’s the official synopsis for the film:
It’s been four years since theme park and luxury resort Jurassic World was destroyed by dinosaurs out of containment. Isla Nublar now sits abandoned by humans while the surviving dinosaurs fend for themselves in the jungles.
When the island’s dormant volcano begins roaring to life, Owen (Chris Pratt) and Claire (Bryce Dallas Howard) mount a campaign to rescue the remaining dinosaurs from this extinction-level event. Owen is driven to find Blue, his lead raptor who’s still missing in the wild, and Claire has grown a respect for these creatures she now makes her mission. Arriving on the unstable island as lava begins raining down, their expedition uncovers a conspiracy that could return our entire planet to a perilous order not seen since prehistoric times.
