Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom new trailer released

April 18th, 2018 by Dave Bowling Comments

Universal has just released the new trailer for the fifth Jurassic Park movie. And it’s a belter.

Dinosaurs, explosions, a Jeff Goldblum cameo and Chris Pratt throwing out one liners. There’s nothing like playing to your target audience. Take a look:

So, what do we take away from this? Apparently some shadowy organisation is trying to profit from the dinosaurs being evacuated from Isla Nublar and steal both Blue the Raptor and what appears to be another, young, Indominus Rex. And Ian Malcolm’s back!

Yeah, okay, we know. The Jurassic Park series hasn’t ever really managed to capture the original novel’s cerebral side, and let’s face it is essentially now in giant monster movie territory. And they are to paleobiological accuracy what U571 was to historical accuracy. But Jurassic World was pure dumb fun.

Raptors still don’t have feathers, though.

I’ll get me coat…

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom is released on 22 June.

Dave was born at an early age to parents of both sexes. He has been a self-confessed geek for as long as he can remember, having been raised through the 80s on a steady diet of Doctor Who, Star Trek, Red Dwarf and (sigh) Knight Rider. Throw the usual assortment of Saturday morning cartoons into the mix and we have something quite exceptional: someone with an encyclopaedic knowledge of utter tosh; a love of giant robots and spaceships fighting; and the strange desire to leap tall buildings in a single bound while wearing his underpants over his trousers. The death ray is currently in the works and one day you shall all bow to him, his giant space station and fleet of funky orange space shuttles...
