Welcome to Jurassic Park.....again
Universal Pictures released the first full-length trailer for “Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom” today, the film is hitting theaters later this summer. The studio released a few teaser-trailer moments from the video earlier this week to get fans excited for the full reveal, but you still have a few more months of waiting before you get to see Chris Pratt return to dino-world.
The film will star Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard, both are returning to the franchise alongside executive producers Steven Spielberg and Colin Trevorrow. Pratt and Howard are joined by co-stars James Cromwell, Ted Levine, Justice Smith, Geraldine Chaplin, Daniella Pineda, Toby Jones, and Rafe Spall. Long time Jurassic Park fans should be happy to learn that both BD Wong and Jeff Goldblum will be reprising their roles for the new project.
Directed by J.A. Bayona (The Impossible), the epic action-adventure is written by Jurassic World’s director, Trevorrow, and its co-writer, Derek Connolly. Producers Frank Marshall and Pat Crowley once again partner with Spielberg and Trevorrow in leading the team of filmmakers for this stunning installment. Belén Atienza joins the team as a producer.
This will be the second film in the newly rebooted trilogy, “Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom” will the fifth film overall in the Jurassic Park cinematic world. The last installment had a T-Rex sized debut in theaters back in 2015, bringing in $208M on opening weekend. The film went on to make over $652M domestically and over $1.6B worldwide. If you want some perspective on that opening debut, the original “Jurassic Park” had a $47M opening, and went on to make $1B worldwide.
