‘Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom’ Steps Away From Isla Nublar In New TV Spot
Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom is a month away from storming into theaters. A brand-new TV spot offers a closer look at the dino madness.
Getting A Closer Look
Universal is working hard on the marketing campaign as the movie gets closer to its release date. This latest featurette highlights a few of the diverse dinosaur species that fans can expect to see when the flick gets its official release next month.
For those worried Fallen Kingdom would be a rehash of The Lost World, as it seemed to be from the initial trailers. This new spot showcases how the dino carnage will not be confined to Isla Nublar.
As it happens, the majority of the film appears to have an entirely different setting. The action will predominantly occur in an unsuspecting coastal town nearby, so references to Steven Spielberg's classic monster movie Jaws will likely abound.
The Bigger Picture
Early marketing for the film focuses on Chris Pratt's Owen and Bryce Dallas Howard's Claire, from the first movie, as they attempt to save dinosaurs from a volcano ready to blow on Isla Nublar.
More recent trailers have given away that the real story actually centers on a conspiracy to genetically modify the greatest and most terrifying dinosaur yet, for mass production.
Naturally, things do not go according to plan, leading to bloodshed once the creatures are released to the unsuspecting public once again.
The focus appears to be on childlike wonder on seeing dinosaurs, something similar to Spielberg's original classic. In keeping with that feeling, Howard's Claire asks in the new spot what it felt like to see a dinosaur for the first time.
Massive Summer Movie Event
The official synopsis for the movie is as follows.
"When the island's dormant volcano begins roaring to life, Owen (Pratt) and Claire (Howard) mount a campaign to rescue the remaining dinosaurs ... Their expedition uncovers a conspiracy that could return our entire planet to a perilous order not seen since prehistoric times."
Also appearing in the upcoming movie are James Cromwell, Ted Levine, Justice Smith, Toby Jones, and Rafe Spall among others. Original Jurassic Park stars B.D. Wong and Jeff Goldblum are also set to reprise their roles.
J.A. Bayona, who helmed The Orphanage, The Impossible, and When A Monster Calls directed the firm. Jurassic World netted a huge $1.6 billion worldwide, meaning expectations are high for the sequel.
Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom is scheduled for release on June 22.
