Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard are seen crawling out of the ocean after what could be the movie's promised big underwater action scene in new photos leaked from the set of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom. The Jurassic World sequel, which was recently given an official title, is just about ready to wrap shooting in Hawaii after two months.
Very little has been revealed about the plot of Fallen Kingdom, but we do know it is the middle chapter in a planned trilogy. More may come to light at San Diego Comic-Con where it is rumored a trailer for the film will be shown.
In set photos posted to the celebrity site Just Jared, Fallen Kingdom stars Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard can be seen crawling onto the beach out of the ocean, looking like they've just been in the middle of some heavy action. Other photos show the two stars lying on their backs in the sand apparently exhausted. These shots contain a pretty big reveal; after the backlash that ensued when Howard spent most of Jurassic World running around in high heels, it's worth noting that in the new photos she's wearing boots.
The fact that Pratt and Howard are shooting on the beach is significant in light of the revelation that the movie will include an underwater action sequence involving submarines and dinosaurs, info that was leaked by a minor cast member during an interview. The beach images certainly seem to show Pratt and Howard reaching land and collapsing in exhaustion after escaping some kind of danger in or under the ocean. Given the secrecy about the movie's plot, this is a semi-major revelation.
Among the other vague tidbits of information that have come out about Fallen Kingdom was a promise from Chris Pratt that the movie will be "scarier and unexpected" compared to Jurassic World. Jurassic World director Colin Trevorrow, who also had a hand in developing the sequel, says the movie is more character-driven and suspenseful than the first but also says there's an "insane" action sequence in the middle. There was also a synopsis on a production listing site that teased the possibility of dinosaurs carrying weapons, though this is far from confirmed.
Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom also stars original Jurassic Park cast member Jeff Goldblum, James Cromwell, Ted Levine, Toby Jones, BD Wong, Geraldine Chaplin, Rafe Spall and Daniella Pineda.
