This is what love looks like.
This was my Super Bowl. Pepsi. Wendy’s. Several awesome trailers. Not only did Netflix announce The Cloverfield Paradox out of thin air, but Universal Pictures hit the Big Game g-spot with their new trailer for Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom.
Let’s be honest, Jurassic World sucks. I had a lot of fun the first time I saw it, but upon second viewing I couldn’t even finish it. It’s an absolute mess that even finds a way to misuse the iconic theme from Steven Spielberg’s Jurassic Park.
We all know that trailers can be misleading, but it’s hard to not be hyperbolic about Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom. The footage is awesome. J.A. Bayona‘s sequel looks to not only capture all the awe and wonder of Spielberg’s adaptation, but also the extreme thrills. Nothing here looks safe – even when Chris Pratt is reaching out to pet his velociraptor there’s something inside us that’s screaming, “Don’t! It’s going to take your hand off!” There are several shots that look straight out of a horror movie (do I see delicious practical effects?). Just take a look at the scene in which Bayona puts a dinosaur into a little girl’s bedroom – it’s not only a relatable location, but it’s also terrifying.
Life will find a way on June 22, 2018, but until then, please enjoy this selection of glorious shots from the new trailer.
