The first trailer for Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom is set to debut on Thursday, November 30th during the NBC’s Thursday Night Football. The footage from the movie is a brief scene of Chris Pratt having a moment with a baby dinosaur had premiered last week.
Planned as a middle chapter in a trilogy, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom starts off where the 2015 Jurassic World had left off after humans made the massive mistake of creating a park with real dinosaurs. A Monster Calls director J.A. Bayona takes the reins from Colin Trevorrow who co-wrote the script for this sequel and was involved in the production. Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard return as the leads, joined by original Jurassic Park star Jeff Goldblum, who is back in the iconic role of mathematician/philosopher/hunk Ian Malcolm.
While the video confirms that Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom trailer will launch on Thursday, Trailer Track reports that the teaser shall debut at NBC’s Thursday Night Football game before it is released online. Star Wars: The Last Jedi debuted a trailer on Monday Night Football, and it generated lots of hype on social media. Thursday may be a big day for trailers, with even Avengers: Infinity War dropping their first trailer.
Steven Spielberg’s Jurassic Park was a huge hit when it made its debut in 1993 and wowed the audiences with the computer-generated dinosaurs and Michael Crichton storyline. The two sequels that followed went into hiatus, and the CGI dinosaurs went into the realm of cheesiness. The Jurassic Park brand will prove to be much more durable than anyone has anticipated; in 2015, Jurassic World soared to $1.6 billion at the worldwide box office.
Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom will bring back fan favorite dinosaurs from the previous movie, including the massive Indominus Rex and introducing some new creatures. The plot details are a secret, but it is safe to assume the movie will not stray away from the Jurassic Park formula of dinosaurs running amok.
