After a week of teasers, the first full-length trailer for Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, the sequel to Jurassic World, Colin Trevorrow’s 2015 reboot/continuation, is here.
It’s interesting to see how far these films have come since Steven Spielberg’s original Jurassic Park. Here the focus is on an erupting volcano that could wipe out the creatures again. The cast is headlined by returning stars Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard, with a guest appearance from Jeff Goldblum, who reprises his role as mathematician Dr Ian Malcolm.
It’s been four years since theme park and luxury resort Jurassic World was destroyed by dinosaurs out of containment. Isla Nublar now sits abandoned by humans while the surviving dinosaurs fend for themselves in the jungles.
When the island’s dormant volcano begins roaring to life, Owen (Chris Pratt) and Claire (Bryce Dallas Howard) mount a campaign to rescue the remaining dinosaurs from this extinction-level event. Owen is driven to find Blue, his lead raptor who’s still missing in the wild, and Claire has grown a respect for these creatures she now makes her mission. Arriving on the unstable island as lava begins raining down, their expedition uncovers a conspiracy that could return our entire planet to a perilous order not seen since prehistoric times.
With all of the wonder, adventure and thrills synonymous with one of the most popular and successful series in cinema history, this all-new motion-picture event sees the return of favourite characters and dinosaurs—along with new breeds more awe-inspiring and terrifying than ever before. Welcome to Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom.
