'Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom' Trailer: Isla Nublar Erupts
If there hadn’t been a massive hurricane in 1993, it’s possible the first Jurassic Park would have been just fine. But, because that big storm did hit, and no one held onto their butts as hard as they should have, the original dinosaur theme park was partially cursed by a natural disaster. And now, it looks like another natural disaster will befall the rebooted version of Jurassic Park. A massive volcanic eruption will send Isla Nublar into chaos.
On Sunday, the official Jurassic World Twitter account released a 15-second teaser video from Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, which is either the direct sequel to Jurassic World, or the fifth film in the franchise that started with Jurassic Park, depending on how you look at it.
As many have already noticed, Bryce Dallas Howard’s shoes are a lot more practical this time, though she and Chris Pratt’s bad habit of putting children in a position where they might be trampled by dinosaurs hasn’t gotten much better
There aren’t any raptors or T. rexes in this video, but there are some Compsognathuses, what looks like an Ankylosaurus, a few Gallimimuses, and the iconic long-necked sauropods, probably Brachiosauruses, as well as a Stegosaurus and a Triceratops. These dinos and the humans are fleeing from a volcanic eruption, which probably means the entire island of Isla Nublar was built on an active volcano or something. The design flaws to this amusement park are seemingly endless. No sign yet if we’ve got Dodgson here or not.
Notably, the dinos in this short clip are all the friendly, herbivore variety, meaning Jurassic World 2 is probably saving its bug-guns — the meat-eating murder dinos — for the full trailer.
That full trailer hits the internet this Thursday, December 7, 2017.
Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom will hit movie theaters on June 22, 2018. Though the critical reception of Jurassic World was mixed, the film did break box office records, and currently has the second highest opening weekend of all time, just behind Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
