We learned last night that the official trailer for J.A. Bayona’s Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom will debut this Thursday night, and we were also treated to a trailer teaser.
Additionally, another short TV spot has surfaced, giving us a glimpse at some more footage from the full trailer. Notably, it features the very first appearance – as confirmed by Colin Trevorrow over on Twitter this afternoon – of the dino known as Baryonyx, mentioned in Jurassic Park III but not yet seen within the film franchise.
As noted on the Jurassic World website, Baryonyx (which means “Heavy Claw”) is a 30-foot, 2-ton carnivore, one of the largest fish-eating dinosaurs. “Its crocodile-like head and dangerous claws make it a master hunter of rivers and lakes for Cretaceous-era sushi.”
Check out your first look at Baryonyx at the 5-second mark in the video below.
In Fallen Kingdom…
“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.”
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.
