Volcanoes, dinosaurs, genetic monstrosities, and Chris Pratt. Yep, it’s Jurassic World alright. From this Super Bowl spot, it looks pretty darn cool too.
A Fallen Kingdom
There really is a magic to the dinosaurs of this franchise. Maybe it’s because they actually look like the dinos that we all grew up with, I don’t know. Whatever it is, they continue to be stunning re-creations of the iconic animals. Sure they don’t all look like the modern understanding of terrible lizards, but they’re just so stinking cool it doesn’t matter. And anyway, all that’s been explained away in the fiction as genetic tinkering.
That’s especially true here in the reinvigorated “Jurassic World” series. In this new set of films, starring Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard, the art of cloning and all the possibilities that it offers are explored more fully than in the original Jurassic Park series. So far, it’s been kinda neat with a beast of a big-bad in the first movie. This -so far- looks even better.
I was under the impression that Fallen Kingdom would basically be an “escape from Jurassic World” kinda thing. If you’re somehow not aware, there’s a volcano erupting that will consume the park, and the company is looking to capture and relocate its investments. By that I mean the dinos themselves. But it looks like that’s only a part of the story. That monster in the house nods to that, and I’m pretty excited to see where this (and mentions of some kind of conspiracy) goes.
So sit tight Jurassic fans, the latest dino-starrer is set to open in theaters on June 22nd.
