Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom Trailer

"Life cannot be contained. Life breaks free…" Universal Pictures has debuted the first official trailer for J.A. Bayona's Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, the action-packed blockbuster sequel to 2015's Jurassic World, which is the current reboot of the Jurassic Park sci-fi dinosaur park series. The plot for this one involves the group going back to Isla Nublar to try and save some dinos before a volcano eruption takes out the entire island. Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard return as co-stars, along with "Ian Malcolm" himself, Mr. Jeff Goldblum, plus BD Wong, Toby Jones, Ted Levine, James Cromwell, Geraldine Chaplin, and Rafe Spall. So this actually looks pretty damn good, better than I was expecting, but it still seems they're overselling it (more dinosaurs, and a volcano, and everything!). I just hope this one is good.

Here's the first trailer (+ poster) for J.A. Bayona's Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, from YouTube:

Set several years after Jurassic World, this sequel is about a volcano on Isla Nublar that threatens the dinosaurs that had overrun the park. Dino trainer Owen Grady and former park manager Claire Dearing return to figure out how to get the dinosaurs off the island safely. Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom is directed by acclaimed Spanish filmmaker J.A. Bayona (follow him on Twitter @FilmBayona), of the films The Orphanage, The Impossible, and A Monster Calls (also known as 7 Minutes After Midnight) previously. The screenplay is written by Colin Trevorrow & Derek Connolly; based on the characters created by Michael Crichton. Universal will release Bayona's Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom in theaters everywhere starting June 22nd, 2018 next summer. Who's excited for more dinosaur mayhem now? Follow @JurassicWorld.

T-Rex saves the day once again? Man! this ain't Jurassic Park, This is Mario Bros.

tarek on Dec 7, 2017


Does that happen? I haven't seen that flick in decades.

grimjob on Dec 7, 2017


I hate everything about this. Mind-numbing sequel no one asked for with a setup equally ridiculous. "Save the dinosaurs.... AGAIN!"

THE_RAW_ on Dec 7, 2017


But, but... He said it. He said "Life finds a way." What else do you want man?!

grimjob on Dec 7, 2017


Yeah, never trust what the Grandmaster says. And there's not much of "life finding a way" with a giant volcano spewing magma all over your life. The premise is weak, the idea is idiotic and this is simply a cash grab from a successful franchise. They're beating a dead dinosaur at this point.

THE_RAW_ on Dec 8, 2017


A cash grab? This? Noooo... I'm sure they legitimately have an impactful script with a tight narrative, fleshed-out characters, and a very specific vision. And Jeff Goldblum.

I want to love this, but I don't. I like the cast, but the premise looks awful. Also, let's ask the Pompeiians what it's like to try and outrun 1000'F ash travelling at 100+ mph.

McWetty on Dec 7, 2017


I'll watch anything Juan A. Bayona directs, the guy is a genius.

Sean Taylor on Dec 7, 2017


Well thats very true...

ari smulders on Dec 8, 2017


Looks like a lot of stuff happening...I really want it to work, but I have one of those feelings.

DAVIDPD on Dec 7, 2017


I don't know, the premise is a bit overstretched, but who knows, it might work as a fun at some point. And it's a summer release the time when I need things to do. So, maybe ...

shiboleth on Dec 8, 2017


Looks like some daft fun too me, Another Dino stampede, hope its just as OTT and fun as the peter Jackson madness : o)

LV 426 on Dec 8, 2017


looks silly....but its Jurassic park so we will all see it...

Trey on Dec 8, 2017


The first ever Jurassic Park film was enough.

Carpola on Dec 8, 2017


Yup. Much like the first Pirates of the Caribbean movie. The plot was nicely tied up and didn't need a sequel...but money talks.

Xerxexx on Dec 8, 2017


It is brilliant. One of those films that I personally let stand on its own and I ignore the others as part of the universe. All the moral questions were debated and played out. There wasn't any ambiguity or themes of DNA manipulation/cloning left to discuss. Plus, the action was intense and brilliant.

Quanah on Dec 8, 2017


Could this be the Jurassic Park to Fast & Furious crossover we all have been waiting for ??? Star Trek did it, why not dinos ?

Tester on Dec 8, 2017


I think I've just seen the entire movie. How can you get excited about seeing dinosaurs run, struggle to survive, and get brutally killed in mass numbers? This is just sad. By the way, true history shows dinosaurs were here before Noah's flood with us, not 65 million years before us. The world is less than 10,000 years old.

CyraNOSE on Dec 8, 2017


Colin Trevorrow tweeted last night that all of the footage in this trailer is from the first 60 minutes. So you definitely haven't seen the entire movie. There's much more to it. Which is exciting, considering there's already a lot happening in this trailer. You never know, this is just a tease, even though it seems more but that's not really the case...

Alex Billington on Dec 8, 2017


Good to know it's all from the first half of the film. Changes my perspective of the trailer.

David Diaz on Dec 8, 2017


Good to know! I have a feeling the film will surprise in the best of ways. Personally, I would love to see some Human-Dino hybrids like what was originally planned for the first film. Stay positive, guys!

Sean Taylor on Dec 8, 2017


You don't seriously believe the dinosaurs were kicking about with humans less than 10,000 years ago do you? Please say you're joking.

Carpola on Dec 8, 2017


Ah, a young earth creationist. You're as rare as Northern Hairy-Nosed Wombat. And there isn't one credible shred of evidence to support your statement.

Quanah on Dec 8, 2017


True history? What's the source for that then?

Lewis on Dec 8, 2017



Xerxexx on Dec 8, 2017


Awesome trailer for something we seen before!

ari smulders on Dec 8, 2017


Not the greatest trailer but I'm excited nonetheless. It's good to know that this all happens in the first half of the film though. If the plot was only getting them off the island it would seem too similar to Lost World where the bad guys were trying to get them off the island. And I'm great at suspending disbelief but trying to outrun a pyroclastic cloud is futile. But they did it in 2012 so it must be possible! I love this series so I'll be excited to see this no matter what.

David Diaz on Dec 8, 2017


Much the same as any other Jurrasic film, but its got a winning formula - DINOSAURS!!!

Lewis on Dec 8, 2017

29 least they got Carnotaurus right. Even though it was still a relatively big animal (about two to three tons in weight), however, it was lightly built, and was much smaller than T. rex, itself (which was closer to eight or nine tons), and wasn't the massive behemoth in Disney's 2000 film, "Dinosaur" (matter of fact, it was about the same size as Iguanodon, too).

Mark Brackney on Dec 9, 2017


Jurassic Park was absolutely amazing for exactly one movie. The rest have been crap, but fun crap if you can forgive all their many problems. I'll once again be there on day one to hope for a good movie. It's okay if I'm disappointed, I'm used to it.
