The third and final trailer for Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom is here. Universal brought back Steven Spielberg's Jurassic Park franchise in a big way in 2015. Directed by Colin Trevorrow, Jurassic World broke all sorts of records, that were topped later that year by Star Wars: The Force Awakens. The studio then turned to A Monster Calls director J.A. Bayona to helm the sequel and elevate the dino-related scares further.
Although Jurassic World was overall well-received, it has its detractors, which has made the discussion around Fallen Kingdom a bit more mixed. The marketing hasn't helped that either, with the first Fallen Kingdom trailer earning an underwhelming response from fans. The second Fallen Kingdom trailer improved in that respect, but still fell short of generating real hype for the sequel. Now, that job falls to the third and final Fallen Kingdom trailer.
Universal Picture has debuted a brand new and officially final trailer for Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom today after releasing new Fallen Kingdom posters yesterday. Featuring even more of Jurassic World protagonists Owen (Chris Pratt) and Claire (Bryce Dallas Howard) on their new dinosaur-saving adventure, the latest Fallen Kingdom trailer also provides more story details for the sequel. You can watch the trailer in the space above.
For the final trailer, Paramount has laid out the entire plot of Fallen Kingdom. It turns out Rafe Spall's character is a much bigger part of the film than the previous trailers had let on. His character helps Claire on her expedition to save some of the dinosaurs left at Jurassic World, but unbeknownst to her, he has his own plans for the dinos. Spall's character is interested in selling dinosaurs to the highest bidder, and wants to use Blue as the basis for a new line of controlled creatures.
Unsurprisingly, the villain's attempt to capture, create, and sell dinosaurs in Fallen Kingdom doesn't go according to plan. The final trailer shows that it's not long before "the most dangerous creature to ever walk the earth" is running wild and terrorizing people as expected. Owen and Blue thus team up to hunt down said new dinosaur, giving the film a buddy-cop/spy element that we certainly weren't expecting.
As for whether or not this trailer will do its job and get more people onboard for the Jurassic World sequel, well, that remains to be seen. Fallen Kingdom will have a tough task replicating the $1.6 billion gross of its predecessor, and it can't afford too big of a drop off at the box office - not with Jurassic World 3 directed by Trevorrow already in development.
