What a week it’s been for Chris Pratt.
Coming hot off the show-stopping first preview for Avengers: Infinity War, the Powers That Be over at Universal have now unleashed Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom‘s official trailer teaser, giving us a far too small taste of what’s to come ahead of the full trailer’s launch this Thursday.
Headed up by Juan Antonio Bayona (A Monster Calls), who took control of the Jurassic World series in lieu of Colin Trevorrow – the director initially made tracks for Star Wars: Episode IX, but Lucasfilm ultimately chose J.J. Abrams for the gig – Fallen Kingdom has always been described as a scarier and darker spin on the tried-and-tested formula, which isn’t all that surprising given it’s coming from the man who brought us The Orphanage.
Truth be told, aside from even more genetically modified dinosaurs and the promise of a “suspenseful and scary” story, there’s not a lot of intel currently available for Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom. The subtitle does hint at a possible deep dive into Isla Nublar and its murky history though, which would certainly leave the door open for Ian Malcolm’s return. Yes, after his rip-roaring turn in Thor: Ragnarok, the great Jeff Goldblum is headed back to the Jurassic franchise for another whirl. And we couldn’t be more excited.
Also starring Toby Jones, Daniella Pineda, Justice Smith, Rafe Spall, Ted Levine, James Cromwell, and Juan Antonio Bayona’s good-luck charm Geraldine Chaplin, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom will be with us on June 22nd, 2018. Be sure to stay tuned to WGTC over the coming days when we’ll have full coverage of that much anticipated first trailer.
