The trailer for the new Jurassic World movie hit last night and while it was full of lots of action and excitement, as with all trailers, there's also a fear that it was full of something else, spoilers. The trailer seemed to show so much that at least one fan was worried that the entire plot has been given away in the trailer, considering the end of the trailer could very possibly be the end of the movie. The person voiced these concerns directly on Twitter. Luckily, producer Colin Trevorrow revealed the trailer doesn't show off as much as it might seem, as the trailer only shows scenes from the first half of the film.
Everything in the trailer is from the first 57 minutes.
It's understandable why somebody could be worried. The beginning of the trailer reveals that the island is in danger of blowing up, and at the end of the trailer, the island blows up. Certainly, the volcano erupting could be the major third act climax which leads to some sort of heroic escape. You wouldn't have that major event take place in the middle of the movie? Except, apparently, you would.
It's great to know, thanks to Colin Trevorrow's Twitter comment, that the new trailer doesn't reveal everything about Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom. While spoilers don't necessarily ruin the experience of watching a movie for the first time, they do change the experience, and many like to go into a highly anticipated movie knowing as little as possible. They certainly don't want to know how it ends before it starts.
Of course, while trying to avoid spoilers, learning that the volcano eruption is going to happen before the middle of the movie leads one to wonder and ask all sorts of questions about what might happen after that. It's not enough that Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard's characters have to avoid being eaten by dinosaurs, they'll also have to take an active volcano into account for what will likely be the entire second half of the film. The first Jurassic World was just over two hours long and there's every reason to expect the sequel to be at least that long. How exactly are they going to save all the dinosaurs, nevermind themselves, while navigating a violently erupting volcano? We're glad we don't know the answer to that right now, and we're hoping we'll make it to the release date without the answer. For now, you can check out the trailer, below.
Jurassic World, while certainly expected to be a blockbuster, became one of the highest grossing movies of all time. Expectations are certainly high that the sequel will follow suit. With the added spectacle of explosions on top of dinosaurs eating people, there's a good chance that it will.
Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom is set for release next year. To get caught up on the sequel, check out everything we know about the upcoming film.
