It’s here! The FINAL trailer for the next installment in the Jurassic Park (World) Franchise. Jurassic World: The Fallen Kingdom!
CHECK IT OUT
I think this movie looks pretty good, actually! J.A. Bayona (A Monster Calls) is taking a shot at the franchise this time around. The follow-up to Colin Trevorrow’s 2015 attempt at the reboot/sequel. I actually enjoyed Jurassic World, but it was a very SAFE movie. It didn’t really take any risks and was another one of those “fun for the whole family” type movies. Which is fine! But I remember the Jurassic Park movies being more for an adult audience and having those scary moments! The first time I saw that goat leg hit the roof of the jeep I almost shit my pants.
If you’ve seen ‘A Monster Calls’ you know that Bayona can make a movie with a great monster, scary elements, but one that also has heart. That’s what I’m hoping to get out of this film. I know we’re not going to get a straight horror film or any gore OR anything less than “video game violence”, but I think I’m okay with that. At least the franchise is taking a detour from its regular trope of:
Man builds park. People go to park. Park goes bad. People die. Everyone admits park was a bad idea… but then do it again 5 times for some reason.
I’m REALLY digging the military side-story. We saw BD Wong’s character in Jurassic World go from the lovable scientist from the original to a money hungry antagonist! That was a cool twist! I’m excited to see how the military/auction/weaponized aspect of the film plays out… but I swear to god… if they wind up making another one of these movies in a park, we riot.
I want this franchise to go the way of Planet of the Apes. Have the Dinosaurs take over the planet again.. humanity is forced to live along side them in an almost post-apocalyptic world and either have “Life Find A Way” to survive, or kill them all and re-take the planet.
We’ll know for sure on June 22!
