Premiere of the Official Trailer for ‘Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom’

After a series of teasers and making-of clips released over the past several weeks, the first full-length trailer for Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom debuted today.

The film is helmed by J. A. Bayona, with writing credits for Derek Connolly and the director of the previous installment in the franchise, Colin Trevorrow. Steven Spielberg, director of the original Jurassic Park, returns to this film as an executive producer. Universal Pictures hopes to build on the success of 2015’s Jurassic World, which grossed over $1.6 billion worldwide.  This is the fifth installment in the franchise.

Bayona, a native of Barcelona, is best known for The Orphanage (2007) and A Monster Calls (2016). With this film, the director seems poised to launch a career in Hollywood after building a reputation as an innovative Spanish filmmaker.

The new trailer promises the return of a number of characters from the previous movie, including Chris Pratt as Owen Grady and Bryce Dallas Howard as Claire Dearing. BD Wong, who appeared in the original 1993 Jurassic Park as well as the 2015 Jurassic World, will also be back for this sequel.

The film will also feature one of the fan-favorite characters from the original Jurassic movies: Dr. Ian Malcolm, played by the inimitable Jeff Goldblum. A voiceover in the trailer teases Malcolm’s most iconic line from the very first movie: “Life cannot be contained. Life breaks free. Life…finds a way.”

Based on the new footage, it looks as though Owen Grady’s beloved velociraptor Blue will also be making a reappearance — although it’s yet to be determined whether she’s friend or foe.

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom arrives in theatres on June 22, 2018. Watch the full trailer below.
