Geeksmas day 8 and my excitement, like life, cannot be contained!
Universal Pictures have finally given us the first trailer for the next part of the “Jurassic” franchise: Check it out below!
The film picks up 25 years after Jurassic Park, 21 years after The Lost World: Jurassic Park, 17 years after Jurassic Park III and three years after Jurassic World.
Plot details are still somewhat scarce but it seems that there’s an active volcano (more on that in a bit, though) that now threatens to destroy the island and it’s inhabitants and world governments are trying decide just what to do about it. Jeff Goldblum’s Ian Malcolm returns and is one of (probably many) experts that are asked their opinion (Rumors persist that Sam Neill, Laura Dern might return for the sequel as their characters Alan Grant and Ellie Sattler though nothing is confirmed). It would appear that the rescue mission is given the go ahead as Bryce Dallas Howard and Chris Pratt return as Claire Dearing and Owen Grady and join a group on the island armed with weapons and containment units.
Things, inevitably, go wrong and we find the humans fighting for survival. A popular theory, that just won’t go away is that an “off-the-books” part of InGen, possibly led by BD Wong’s Dr. Henry Wu, were working to create dino-soldiers, or at least weaponize the dinos and that is why they were messing with hybrids. This is backed up by Vincent D’Onofrio’s Hoskins in Jurassic World, as he was very interested in Owen’s work with Blue and the “Rap-Pack”. Once the park was abandoned, they had to find a way to get their soldiers off the island and have “activated” the volcano.
Fallen Kingdom is confirmed to star Bryce Dallas Howard as Claire Dearing, Chris Pratt as Owen Grady, Jeff Goldblum as Ian Malcolm, BD Wong as Dr. Henry Wu and James Cromwell as Benjamin Lockwood and is due out June 22nd, 2018.
What are your thoughts on the trailer? Do you think that the dinosaurs deserve to be saved or should they be left to their fate? Will a main cast member be killed off during the movie? Let us know your thoughts and predictions!
