Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom Trailer Is Finally Here

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom Trailer Is Finally Here
Life finds a way in the first trailer for Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom. In 2015, Jurassic World managed to totally reinvigorate the Jurassic Park franchise, which had been dormant since 2001's Jurassic Park III. The hope was to kick off a new trilogy of movies and, given the success, director Colin Trevorrow managed to do just that. Now we have our first real look at the highly-anticipated sequel, which looks like it could be something quite unique within the framework of the enduring series. Here is the official synopsis.

"It's been four years since theme park and luxury resort Jurassic World was destroyed by dinosaurs out of containment. Isla Nublar now sits abandoned by humans while the surviving dinosaurs fend for themselves in the jungles.When the island's dormant volcano begins roaring to life, Owen (Chris Pratt) and Claire (Bryce Dallas Howard) mount a campaign to rescue the remaining dinosaurs from this extinction-level event.

First Look at Jeff Goldblum as Dr. Ian Malcolm in Jurassic World 2

If you weren't already excited about Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, this might just do the trick. We haven't seen Jeff Goldblum as Dr. Ian Malcolm since The Lost World: Jurassic Park, which was released more than 20 years ago. So the fact that he's coming back to the franchise after all of this time is exciting. Now, we have our very first look at Goldblum's return to the Jurassic Park franchise, and it's perfect.

Our first look at Jeff Goldblum's return as Dr. Ian Malcolm comes via a newly released behind-the-scenes featurette for Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom. The featurette combines a lot of behind-the-scenes interviews and footage, blended with choice bits of new footage from the movie itself. About halfway through, there's a shot of what looks to be a rather large courtroom and, sitting at one of the tables is none other than Ian Malcolm.

A lot of time

The Post review

Meryl Streep puts in an astounding performance in Steven Spielberg's The Post. Here's our review...

It’s not been uncommon for Steven Spielberg, in his directorial career, to stack projects and get through two or three films in a very contracted amount of time. The man himself admitted that by the time he came to make Saving Private Ryan – immediately following The Lost World: Jurassic Park and Amistad – that he was near-exhausted, and working heavily on instinct. An instinct that would win him a Best Director Oscar. Who knows if history will repeat itself.

After all, instinct is clearly at work in his new film, The Post, too. This is a movie that even in January, Spielberg wasn’t clear he was going to do, let alone this year. Instead, he was making Ready Player One (due in March), and whilst that movie has been in post-production, Spielberg announced,

Get ready to finally see the first trailer for Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom in the very near future. It's been a long time coming, but it looks like the wait for the first Jurassic World 2 trailer is nearly over. For real this time. There have been a few false alarms, but director J.A. Bayona has teased the trailer himself this time. Considering everything we know, it's all but guaranteed that the first substantial footage from the latest entry in the Jurassic Park franchise will arrive next week.

During the Thanksgiving holiday, the first footage from Jurassic World 2, officially titled Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, debuted. It was merely six seconds in length and features Chris Pratt's Owen Grady playing with a baby velociraptor. But it was more than enough to get fans excited about the potential that exists for the upcoming sequel. Now, director J.A. Bayona took to Twitter to

When hackers infiltrated Jurassic Park: The Lost World's website

Paul Bullock Nov 13, 2017

The website for Jurassic Park: The Lost World remains online - and it was once hacked, and made more, er, 'duck-focused'....

For a brief moment in May 1997, Universal Pictures was promoting a major blockbuster about ducks. With the internet growing into the vital marketing tool it’s become today, the studio pushed its financial might behind the online sphere, creating a comprehensive, immersive and interactive site for the sequel to one of its biggest hits. However, just after The Lost World: Jurassic Park was released, something went badly wrong.

“They're quacked,” reads a CNN article dated May 28th 1997 and brilliantly titled Hackers fowl Up Lost World Site. “The dinosaurs of The Lost World were no match for hackers who broke into their Web site and with a stroke of a key changed the film's name to The Duck World: Jurassic Pond."

What Jeff Goldblum's Dr. Ian Malcolm Is Doing in Jurassic World 2

Jurassic World 2 has already wrapped production and the movie is scheduled to arrive next year. The first movie didn't rely heavily on classic characters from the franchise, instead opting to introduce us to new characters, like Chris Pratt's Owen and Bryce Dallas Howard's Claire. But that's not going to be the case with the sequel, as Jeff Goldblum is set to return as Dr. Ian Malcolm. Though he can't talk much about it, Goldblum has teased a bit of what his role in the movie is going to be.

Jeff Goldblum is currently promoting the upcoming release of Thor: Ragnarok, which hits theaters on November 3. While making the press rounds, he was asked about his role in Jurassic World 2, officially titled Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom. He revealed, in his own cagey way, that Ian Malcolm is going to "have something to say" about the events of Jurassic World and the "misuse of technology.

Jeff Goldblum Sheds Light On Ian Malcolm’s Return In Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom

Prior to the addition of Jeff Goldblum, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom wasn’t exactly jumping off the page as the must-see movie of 2018.

Sure, you have Juan Antonio Bayona and his horror credentials, not to mention the promise of even more genetically modified dinosaurs, but from the outside looking in, Universal’s Jurassic World sequel was shaping up to be your by-the-numbers Hollywood sequel: a bigger, bolder successor with a few new faces (see: Toby Jones, Daniella Pineda, Justice Smith, and Rafe Spall) throw in for good measure.

But that all changed when Jeff Goldblum signed on to reprise as Ian Malcolm, the eccentric mathematician who was last seen in The Lost World: Jurassic Park more than 20 years ago. The finer details of Malcolm’s second coming are being kept under lock and key (and rightly so!), but while promoting his role as Marvel’s Grandmaster in Thor: Ragnarok, Jeff Goldblum

Jeff Goldblum provides details on Dr. Ian Malcolm’s return in Jurassic World 2

Actor Jeff Goldblum has offered up some details regarding his return in Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom.

Goldblum, long a fan-favourite actor thanks to his peculiar mannerisms and interesting characters choices, will be returning as Dr. Ian Malcolm – last seen in The Lost World: Jurassic Park II – for the sequel to the immensely successful Jurassic World.

The series return has been a big success and has made Fallen Kingdom one of the most anticipated blockbusters on the Hollywood calendar. But just what can fans expect from Ian Malcolm’s return? Goldblum offers up some details to Radio Times.

Ian Malcolm, yes, might be back in this one, and he might have something to say about the current confluence of circumstances around the use and misuse of technology. With some wry irony, deep wise passionate conviction, and he might put on a nice dark bit of clothing here and there … and a tint of glass maybe.

Fan Creates ‘Jurassic Park’ Sequel We All Would Have Paid To See

We don’t usually post that many fan trailers here on the site, but we thought we’d make an exception for this one. A hugely talented fan has put the following trailer together for a potential Jurassic Park II using footage from the original 1993 movie and what looks to be some from the Bruce Willis-led Tears Of The Sun, his hugely under-rated 2003 movie, directed by Antoine Fuqua. Watch the Jurassic Park 2 fan trailer in the player at the bottom of the post.

Pitched at what appears to be Jurassic Park by way of Predator, the trailer alludes to a film we’d certainly stand in line to see.

Of course, back in 1997 we were ‘treated’ to a very lackluster sequel to Steven Spielberg’s 1993 original, adapted from the source material by Michael Crichton. The Lost World: Jurassic Park, far from set the world on alight, even though it

Jurassic World 2 Will Unleash a Volcano Confirms Producer

Jurassic World 2 Will Unleash a Volcano Confirms Producer
Jurassic World 2 just got a whole lot more interesting. Good or bad? you decide. But definitely interesting. There have been rumors for a few months that some sort of threat on Isla Nublar is going to force a rescue mission, with the humans rescuing the dinosaurs this time. Now, producer Frank Marshall has confirmed that a volcanic threat will be present in Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom. Is this what will force said rescue mission to take place? Sounds like a very strong possibility.

Frank Marshall has been very active on social media throughout the production on Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom and the movie recently wrapped filming in Hawaii. Following the production wrap, Marshall took to Twitter in order to confirm this volcanic threat in the movie, via a joke that relates to the Jimmy Buffet musical Escape to Margaritaville. Here's what Frank Marshall had to say about it.

Leaked Jurassic World 2 Photos Reveal Animatronic T-Rex
Production on Jurassic World 2 is nearly coming to a close. Filming is expected to wrap this week on the fifth installment of the Jurassic Park franchise, but it looks like a few surprises are still coming our way before production finishes up. We've known for some time that this movie is going to feature a lot more practical dinosaur effects than the first Jurassic World and these new set photos are proof of that. For fans of the original Jurassic Park, this is probably about as big as it gets because a fan-favorite dinosaur is making her triumphant return.

Warning: possible spoilers ahead for Jurassic World 2. A while back, writer/producer Colin Trevorrow revealed that the original Jurassic Park T-rex, which many fans have taken to calling Rexy over the years, is going to be appearing in Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom.

'Men in Black': Making the $1 Million Music Video That Defined Summer 1997
Over Fourth of July weekend twenty years ago, moviegoers learned the good guys dress in black.

The previous July, Will Smith had started his journey to being one of the biggest movie stars in the world with Independence Day, and Men in Black proved that July belonged to the rapper-turned-actor.

In Defense Of: “The Lost World: Jurassic Park” (1997)

Full disclosure: Jurassic Park is my favorite movie. Always has been, always will be. I was born in 1989, and though I grew up on a steady cinematic diet of the usual staples like Star Wars and Indiana Jones, I was, essentially, late to the party. I wasn’t there in 1977 when the world was first taken back a long time ago to a galaxy far, far away. I wasn’t there in 1981 when audiences first met Indy, or in 1982 when a young boy became best friends with a stranded extraterrestrial, or in 1985 when Marty McFly traveled back to 1955. These were the types of stories I grew up on, love, and cherish, of course, but it wasn’t until 1993 that I had the chance to be present as a film became something else, transcending into a cultural event of its own.

Like the countless children before me who took a

‘The Color Purple’ Passes The Bechdel Test, But How Many Other Steven Spielberg Movies Do?

‘The Color Purple’ Passes The Bechdel Test, But How Many Other Steven Spielberg Movies Do?
Steven Spielberg is the most famous filmmaker in the world, so it was only a matter of time before his lengthy filmography was scrutinized by 21st century standards. The Bechdel test was going to find him eventually.

The Bechdel test — coined by graphic novelist Alison Bechdel, it calls for a movie to have at least two named woman characters, who speak to each other about something other than a man — has its flaws, but it’s a simple, quantifiable way to measure whether a movie’s portrayal of women is credible. It’s not an issue that would have come up for Spielberg when he launched his career nearly 50 years ago, but times have changed.

The troubled production of DreamWorks’ first film

Simon Brew Jun 14, 2017

DreamWorks launched in a blaze of publicity – but its first film, The Peacemaker, was beset by problems…

Not since United Artists had launched in the 1930s had Hollywood seen anything quite like it. Steven Spielberg, David Geffen and Jeffrey Katzenberg – a trio with a lot of money and a big contacts book between them – came together to launch the first new studio in a generation. It was called DreamWorks Skg, and it was not short on ambition.

Katzenberg would be heading up its animation arm, and soon got to work, with the likes of Antz and The Prince Of Egypt getting things going. But on the live action side, the assumption that Spielberg would exclusively make his films for the studio quickly proved false. Post-the formation of DreamWorks, his first movie as director would instead be The Lost World: Jurassic Park for Universal. Only then would he
