Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom Trailer #2 (2018) “The Park Is Closed”

I was not a huge fan of Jurassic World (you can read my review here), but I will readily admit of the other options, it is by far the best sequel to Jurassic Park.  The fifth film in the series has a better director in J.A. Bayona (The Impossible, A Monster Calls, The Impossible), but the script is still written by Jurassic World’s Colin Trevorrow, and the script was one of the biggest problems in that film.  One of the most troubling developments in that film was the notion that dinosaurs aren’t impressive enough anymore.  That now instead of just normal dinosaurs, we have hybrid dinosaurs, and the weaponization of those dinosaurs by the military seems so so far from just beholding the wonder and danger of these creatures like we did when the jeep pulled up to the Brachiosaurus in Jurassic Park.  This trailer makes it look flat out like a monster movie, not a dinosaur movie, and I lose more interest in this sequel the more I see of it.  Not even the return of Jeff Goldblum and more misadventures of the world’s worst geneticist, Dr. Henry Wu, can get me excited at this point.    Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom opens June 22, 2018.  More below from Coming Soon.

  1. This is one for the DVD watch-list, maybe … somewhere out there there is someone teaching masterclasses in how to completely screw up a franchise, and way too many other someone’s are drinking their cool-aid.

      1. It’s not a good time to be a brilliant artist in Hollywood. Right now being brilliant is the best way to get yourself put into a box with a bunch of comic books and a deadline to write the screenplay you’ll be working from… pending approval by a committee. It occurs to me that maybe Spielberg deserves some leeway with Indy 5. This is the only franchise that belongs to him. Could be he’s just trying to prove that he can swim with the young guns in modern Hollywood. I wish he were beating them all at their game, instead of turning his franchise into the nadir of revived franchises.

      2. It’s entirely possible that he got old, and it doesn’t go deeper than that.

  2. We saw the first JP, then we saw the facility where the dinosaurs were actually made, and in the last one we saw the park finally open to the public. There is nowhere else to go that is not the height of ridiculousness. The only way I would possibly see this would be if Jeff Goldblum had a really substantial role, since Ian Malcom is one of my favorite film characters of all time. Otherwise, this is not even a rental for me. With movies you sometimes suspend disbelief, but when it comes to the militarization of dinosaurs, I don’t want to. It makes me feel unclean.

    1. I refer you to the world’s worst geneticist: Dr. Henry Wu. Master of the primary mutation…..not so good with predicting further possible mutations. “OHHHH I forgot this might let them breed. OHHHHH shoot, yeah it could turn invisible. Nuts. I’ll get it right in the end.”

      1. You’re being unfair to Wu. He might have bred raptors without knowing exactly what they were, but at least he could be trusted with the basics of his chosen field. Everyone else remotely connected with InGen, from the top down, was discovered after appearing in an old Stooges short featuring Shemp. At least the military will have control of the dinosaurs now, they’ll know what to do.

      2. If you could bring an Indominus Rex into existence, wouldn’t you be tempted? I’m not saying you’d go through with it, during tourist season. But Indominus Rex only proves that some people at Universal lost thier minds.

      3. I suppose I’ve just been venting. It’s been building inside me ever since Hammond came off as avuncular in the first one. THESE PEOPLE ALL DESERVE THE SEVENTH CIRCLE OF HELL, yet they keep making dinosaurs, in film after film after film.
