The hype train for blockbuster films starts early and never slows down and the debut of a trailer for a film can be an event unto itself. That's the world we live in now, folks. Now, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, the sequel to one of the biggest films of all time, is hyping audiences for its first full trailer. In advance of the trailer, dropping this Thursday night, we have been given an intriguing teaser for the upcoming film. Check out the latest in failed theme park ideas, below:
We've learned prior that there will be a huge volcanic blast on Isla Nublar that will provide another obstacle on what is probably -- post-Indominous Rex fiasco -- the most dangerous place on Earth. That's back, and we also get a glimpse of Bryce Dallas Howard's Claire Dearing, coming face to face with a Baryonyx in a sewer. I'm guessing the Ninja Turtles won't be there to save her, so lets hope she's sporting some new cross trainers. But the most interesting part of this tease from writer Colin Trevorrow's Twitter is the end with the T-Rex in the trailer. I think we can assume that this is Rexy, the reigning, defending dino champ of Jurassic Park and Jurassic World. But why is she knocked out and in a crate and what are they doing with her that Chris Pratt's Owen Grady thinks will be awesome?
If there's one thing every movie in this franchise has taught us, it's that dinosaurs love being caged... They're like hamsters, they love it, and it always works out super well for the people doing the caging. On a serious note, while Rexy came to the rescue at the end of Jurassic World, I doubt she's exactly on team human so it will be interesting to see why and how they plan on using the Tyrannosaurus Rex, and please don't tell me it will be as a military asset.This video is the second we've gotten in as many days with the first focusing on the massive volcanic eruption that will make life extra difficult on Isla Nublar. Colin Trevorrow also tweeted out a video of Owen Grady playing proud papa to a baby raptor.
There is little more that is exciting in film than seeing dinosaurs come to life onscreen. They are timelessly awesome to anyone with a pulse. We should also be in for a scarier film this time around with A Monster Calls and The Orphanage director J. A. Bayona taking over directing duties from Colin Trevorrow. Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom will also see the return of fan favorite Jeff Goldblum in the role of Ian Malcolm. More teeth, more Jeff Goldblum and hopefully less product placement could really equal a fun continuation of the franchise.
