Life finds a way.
The official teaser poster for the Jurassic World sequel not only boasts the most excellent tagline harking back to Steven Spielberg’s Jurassic Park but also reveals the film’s title: Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom. I like the way that rolls off my tongue.
Speaking of the tag… Dr. Ian Malcolm, the coolest dude to ever survive a dinosaur attack will be back. Jeff Goldblum portrayed the character, a know-it-all mathematician who came to Jurassic Park as an insurance consultant. When he wasn’t wooing Ellie (Laura Dern) with his knowledge bombs, he was dropping some of the film’s most memorable lines, including, “Life finds a way.” Malcolm survived both trips to Jurassic Park and it looks like he’s being brought back for one last hurrah.
J. A. Bayona (A Monster Calls) is directing the next installment in the studio’s hit franchise. Jurassic World earned $1.67 billion worldwide in 2015 and is the fourth-highest-grossing film in history.
Stars Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard are returning for the sequel, which also stars Justice Smith, James Cromwell and Toby Jones. Colin Trevorrow, who directed Jurassic World, wrote the script for the sequel with Derek Connolly.
Producers Frank Marshall and Pat Crowley once again join executive producers Steven Spielberg and Trevorrow in the next chapter of the franchise. Belén Atienza is also producing. Vice president of production Sara Scott is overseeing production on behalf of the studio.
With all of the wonder, adventure and thrills synonymous with one of the most popular and successful franchises in cinema history, this all-new motion-picture event sees the return of favorite characters and dinosaurs—along with new breeds more awe-inspiring and terrifying than ever before.
Welcome to Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom.
