Life finds a way when we enter the Fallen Kingdom on June 22, 2018.
When the trailer for Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom hit earlier this month, many fans of the franchise were comparing the Jurassic World sequel to the sequel to the original film, The Lost World: Jurassic Park. Indeed the film does appear to have similar plot elements, but writer/producer Colin Trevorrow promises it’s a far different experience.
“It looks like it is [similar to The Lost World] because they all go to a fog-covered, scary island with dinosaurs on it, but it goes to a very, very different place than anyone expects,” Trevorrow said during a recent interview. “Really the heart and soul of the movie, the turn of the story, is not what we’ve shown in this trailer. It’s very much not like The Lost World.”
As Trevorrow recently noted, everything on display in the trailer was taken from the first 57-minutes of the movie, meaning that we really haven’t seen anything yet.
During the same chat, Trevorrow confirmed that a JW trilogy is still the plan.
J. A. Bayona (A Monster Calls) directed the new installment.Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard are returning for the sequel, which also stars Jeff Goldblum, along with 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. Belén Atienza also produced.
“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.
With all of the wonder, adventure and thrills synonymous with one of the most popular and successful series 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.“
