“Welcome to Jurassic World.”
Dinosaurs are scary, but the final trailer for Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom proves that man will always be more terrifying.
The new trailer for Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom is here. The sequel to 2015’s hugely successful Jurassic World hits theaters in June, and this latest promo follows the first teaser that was revealed back in February. There is also a new poster which you can see at the end of this story. The new trailer, which you can view above, lays out much of the storyline, so beware of potential spoilers!
It reveals that the rescue mission featured in the first trailer is merely a ruse to get the dinosaurs off the island and into the hands of some villainous corporate types, who plan to exploit them. But of course, the dinosaurs get loose and mayhem ensues. The moviestars Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Rafe Spall, Toby Jones, and BD Wong, with Jeff Goldblum reprising his role from the original Jurassic Park.
The final trailer gives us our best look yet at the sequel’s story, and why people are returning to the park in the first place. Blue is one of the last dinosaurs in her species, and trainer Owen Grady (Chris Pratt) is tasked with saving her so more scientific tests can be run. That’s what he’s told, at least. It becomes clear in the trailer that there are more nefarious reasons for rescuing Blue. Dinosaurs on their own may be dangerous, but carnivorous, man-eating-machines are much more frightening when they’re being controlled by organizations with bad intentions.
Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom is directed by Spanish filmmaker J.A. Bayona, and co-written by Colin Trevorrow, who helmed the first movie. Pratt is joined by Bryce Dallas Howard, who reprises her role as former Jurassic World theme park operator, Claire.Last year, Trevorrow spoke about working with Bayona. “It is by far my favorite creative collaboration that I’ve ever been involved in,” he said. “Bayona is a completely different kind of filmmaker and thinker than I am, yet we do have a lot of things in common. I was able to craft something specifically for another filmmaker that I admire. I built a Spanish horror thriller with dinosaurs in it that I probably wouldn’t have built for myself.”
“Fallen Kingdom,” which is directed by J.A. Bayona, also stars Bryce Dallas Howard and Goldblum, who reprises his role as Malcolm from the 1993 Steven Spielberg classic.
Pratt tweeted out a poster for the film on Tuesday that included the tag line, “The Park Is Gone.”
“Hold on to your butts,” he wrote.

Even though Fallen Kingdom doesn’t hit theaters until June 22, the release date for the third movie has already been announced. In February, it was confirmed that it will arrive on June 11, 2021. It has also been announced that Trevorrow will return to direct it. This is Trevorrow’s first movie since he was fired from Star Wars Episode IX last year.
