Thursday marked one year until the release of the Jurassic World sequel in theaters and Universal to mark the occasion released the official title and first poster.
Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom will be the title to highly anticipated sequel to the 2015 hit Jurassic World. Universal also released the first official poster for the movie with the tag line, “Life Finds A Away.” If the tag line sounds familiar, it should as it’s quoting the character of Ian Malcom a line from the original Jurassic Park movie.
Speaking of Ian Malcom, actor Jeff Goldblum is returning to the franchise for the first time since 1997’s The Lost World. Collin Trevorrow who directed Jurassic World is only a producer for “Fallen Kingdom”, but says the sequel is a “A Spanish horror thriller with dinosaurs,” what ever that means.
Trevorrow has said this new movie will explore some themes that have never been explored or addressed in the previous films with in the franchise.
“It’s definitely about our greed and the depths of depravity that humans will sink in order to satisfy their need for profit. We’re certainly continuing with a lot of those themes but in different ways. But without spoiling anything there’s definitely new themes that have never been examined in a Jurassic movie before that we’ve gotten into that I really think will expand people’s idea of what these movies can be, that it’s not just people running away from dinosaurs on an island.”
“I think that’s gonna be a better movie. I just do. It’s just deeper, it’s more character-based, it definitely leans into suspense especially in the second half. It does have the big action in the middle and there’s a sequence in the middle that I’ve been watching…I’ve started to see stuff come together and it’s just insane.”
Jurassic World opens in theaters on June 22, 2018
