Universal Pictures let something big and bad loose on Super Bowl Sunday, when viewers first got to see star Chris Pratt come face-to-teeth with a new, terrifying dinosaur hybrid (of which we only get suspense-building glimpses) — thankfully, he’s got Blue by his side. Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom arrives in theaters June 22.
It’s been four years since theme park and luxury resort Jurassic World was destroyed by dinosaurs out of containment. Isla Nublar now sits abandoned by humans while the surviving dinosaurs fend for themselves in the jungles.
When the island’s dormant volcano begins roaring to life, Owen (Chris Pratt) and Claire (Bryce Dallas Howard) mount a campaign to rescue the remaining dinosaurs from this extinction-level event. Owen is driven to find Blue, his lead raptor who’s still missing in the wild, and Claire has grown a respect for these creatures she now makes her mission. Arriving on the unstable island as lava begins raining down, their expedition uncovers a conspiracy that could return our entire planet to a perilous order not seen since prehistoric times.
Co-starring with Pratt and Howard are James Cromwell, Ted Levine, Justice Smith, Geraldine Chaplin, Daniella Pineda, Toby Jones, Rafe Spall and Isabella Sermon; BD Wong and Jeff Goldblum reprise their roles.
Jurassic World’s Steven Spielberg and Colin Trevorrow return as exec producers. The sequel is directed by J.A. Bayona from a script by Trevorrow, who directed the first flick, and returning writer Derek Connolly. Frank Marshall and Pat Crowley are again producers, joined by Belén Atienza.
