Jurassic World was an epic hit of tyrannosaurus proportions. However, some felt it possibly retrod far too many familiar lines and relied a little too heavily on CGI.
The first look at the sequel, Fallen Kingdom, promises something far fresher and a LOT more terrifying – and just wait until you see the animatronix they have these days.
The director, Juan Antonio Bayona, horrified audiences withe The Orphanage, traumatised them with The Impossible and then broke their hearts with A Monster Calls.
Will he do all three with the dino-frachise? Watch the new featurette and see.
With fans eagerly awaiting the first official trailer, this new three-minute featurette is packed with juicy preview footage.
Both Jurassic World stars are back on board with Bryce Taylor Howard promising: “This story takes dinosaurs and takes Jurassic where it’s never gone before.”
Chris Pratt adds: “We’re literally blowing up the island.”
He’s not wrong. There’s not just explosions, there actually seems to be a volcano igniting in the backdrop as hordes of dinosaurs stampede out of a burning forest.
JURASSIC WORLD FALEN KINGDOM FIRST TRAILER RELEASE DATE CONFIRMED AND IT IS THIS WEEK
The tension already looks sky-high, but will this movie recapture the jittery horror aspects of the very first movie?
Oh yes, promise the cast and crew. Especially now they have Juan Antonio Bayona at the helm.
Howard says: “He is a genius when it comes to frightening people.”
Pratt also take step chance to ramp up the tension in his usual jokey style, warning viewers: “Be careful, there’s dinosaurs everywhere and they’re flipping out and killing people.”
Based on his ad-lib, somehow it’s unlikely Pratt will be writing a new script any time soon (instead, Jurassic World director Colin Trevorrow has written the script for the sequel).
One of the other filmmakers is a little more eloquent when he boasts: “On this movie you will see more dinosaurs than you’ve ever seen before.”
And everyone is eager to impress just how, well, impressive the animatronics are. No need for slightly too glossy CGI, here. These monsters are real.
The shots of the cast interacting with the man-made beasts on and off-camera are truly jaw-dropping.
Fan comments are predictably ecstatic, with many still unsure whether that shot at the end of Pratt with the adorable baby raptor (dubbed ‘Baby Blue’ because most are convinced it is the offspring of Blue) is CGI or animatronic.
As one fan said: “If Baby Blue is an animatronic there I will eat my shoe it looks incredible!”
It’s likely some fans may be leaving the cinema barefooted…
