Damn Good ‘Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom’ Trailer Edit Takes Horror Film Approach
One of the big complaints I saw on social media about last week’s Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom trailer is that it didn’t present much of a horror film, despite being recently promised to be the franchise’s scariest installment to date. Granted, we’re mostly expecting action and adventure, but how much terror will be found in next summer’s film?
Well, we won’t really know until next year, but this incredible fan edit that’s just come to our attention should hold you over. It highlights suspense and horror over action and spectacle, making for a trailer that’s arguably better than the official one… while showing even less.
Life finds a way when we enter the Fallen Kingdom on June 22, 2018.
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.“
