During a commercial break in Super Bowl LII, a new trailer for Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom was released, hinting new plots and characters.
The trailer showed some familiar and not-so-familiar faces as well as dinosaurs. The clip started with a scared and creeped-out kid in her room. While there is an eerie background sound, a growl can be heard.
Apart from this, the second part of the hit Universal movie could mainly focus outside the island. The trailer showed a volcanic eruption that caused a lot of explosions and destruction in the habitat of the dinosaurs, which can be obviously deduced from the title.
A caged creature can be seen being shown to an audience of what seemed like a forum. After which, the clip showed the dinosaurs wreaking havoc in the location. The footage hinted of a new breed of dinosaur that was man-made, though the creature was not clearly revealed.
"What is that thing?" Claire, played by Bryce Dallas Howard, asked, to which a child answered, "They made it."
Aside from this, the clip mostly revolved in juxtaposed clips of chaotic scenes, including one where different kinds of dinosaur were running away from the smokes. In a bid to save the creatures from the threat, lead star Chris Pratt, who plays Owen, can be seen approaching Blue, the velociraptor that had been present since the first movie and had established a connection with Owen.
"Blue, come with me. You know you can't stay here," said Owen to the reptile.
This was the second trailer for the film. The first one was released in December, which featured Jeff Goldblum who will reprise his role as Ian Malcolm. Prior to this, the sequel's director had shown to fans a preview of Owen interacting with a baby dinosaur.
Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom is directed by JA Bayona and follows the 2015 prequel, Jurassic World, which was directed by Colin Trevorrow. The latter became the writer, together with Derek Connolly, for the sequel.
The first installment of the film, which was based on Jurassic Park, was well received, earning $208.8 million for a weekend opening in the United States. It was a record-breaking figure but now only places third behind Star Wars: The Last Jedi, with $220 million, and Star Wars: The Force Awakens with $247.9M.
Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom comes to theaters on June 22. It will also star James Cromwell, Toby Jones, and Justice Smith.
