Trailer reaction: 'Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom' looks like 'Geostorm' with dinosaurs
Don't count me as impressed by the supposed "plot" of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom.
Earlier this week star Bryce Dallas Howard dropped some hints of a rundown in a piece with Entertainment Weekly.
“Claire’s founded an organization, Dinosaur Protection Group, and they’re finding a way to get these dinosaurs off the island,” Howard says. “She reaches out to Owen Grady to let him know this is happening.” Hmm. “Reaches out”? It seems Howard and Pratt’s burgeoning relationship now falls under the heading of “It’s complicated.” “When you see them at the beginning of this story, you get caught up as to what’s going on,” Howard says. “But it’s not what you would necessarily expect.”
That sounds terrible. Now we have a trailer driving those feelings home.
Take a look:
This seems to combine the worst of your run-of-the-mill 90's disaster movie with the pain and regret of Jurassic Park III. Not a great looking rebound for Colin Trevorrow's mournful Jurassic World. J. A. Bayona supposedly directed this but are we sure Dean Devlin didn't help?
Maybe it's the image of hundreds of burning dinos plunging into a watery grave but something tells me this isn't going to be a big hit with kids.
I know it's only the first trailer, but damn.
