Life has found a way for Jeff Goldblum to reprise his role as Dr. Ian Malcolm in ‘Jurassic World 2’ Continue reading
With the summer moving in hot, Universal Pictures has unleashed one final Jurassic World trailer that leaves nothing to chance. The last trailer that debuted during the Super Bowl earlier this year gave us a further taste of the spectacle of what’s to come, whereas the first trailer focused more on the nostalgia of the franchise. What I’m seeing in the final Jurassic World trailer is conventional summer blockbuster advertising.
It isn’t enough to prey on those who adore this beloved franchise, the marketing team needs to ensure folks that there will be action, guns, death, and sexual innuendo to appease popcorn audiences. The end result leaves little to the imagination, revealing the new Indominous Rex terrorizing our puny human character who deliver as much exposition as possible in the short two and a half minutes to sell the film.
I’m still hopeful that there is more to Jurassic World than meets the eye, but I wish they hadn’t chosen to include this much eye candy in this trailer. I see Chris Pratt’s character taking on the task and ideology of both Ian Malcolm and Alan Grant. While Bryce Dallas Howard takes on more of the business side of John Hammond’s character, with boobs, who will learn the precious meaning of life and humanity.
There are still a few secrets to the story that haven’t been hinted at, such as who is Vincent D’Onofrio’s character and what is is involvement in all of this and what’s the relationship between the kids and the rest of the story? As long as everything fits organically within the movie I’ll leave happier than when I go in to see it.
