After an eerie IMAX poster, a behind the scenes look at the movie’s practical effects, and three new clips, Universal has released three new TV Spots for Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom. The spots were released over the period of the last few days and we’ve clubbed them in this single post. While they’re largely bits and pieces of existing footage spliced together in new ways, there are a couple of scenes sprinkled around that some might deem too spoilerish for their own taste. For those people, our advise is the same as before: tread carefully.
The first of these spots titled Gone makes no qualms about depicting the Island’s fate. As shown in the trailers, extinction threatens Isla Nublar and the dinosaurs therein as a fiery volcano erupts. Our heroes act to save the dinos before the volcano engulfs the island in its flames. The spot seals the deal by showing the Island blown up as Owen and Claire escape, presumably with some dinosaurs aboard. The resulting imagery is striking and if Fallen Kingdom is going to have more such artistic shots, I’m sold.
What’s also interesting is the T-Rex roaring towards the Lion, as if declaring itself as the new king of the jungle. Assuming this is the note at which the sequel ends, it could have far-reaching ramifications for the third movie, with endless possibilities to take its story to. It’s stuff like this that makes me believe Bayona might actually have done a decent job with the movie and its Universal that’s botching up the marketing by giving away way too much, too haphazardly.
The second and third TV Spots actually don’t give much away in comparison. The second one, titled Genetic Power gives a slightly extended look at the sequence where Claire and the unnamed kid are trapped with the T-Rex in what looks like the inside of a furnace of some sort. The third one, titled New Weapon hints at the movie’s themes about what the dinosaurs could be potentially used for, and hints at the reason for their escape. Both spots are embedded here for your viewing pleasure.
Expect a lot more of such spots in the next few days. We’ll do our best to cover the ones that have some meat, for chances are, this movie might have 40 – 50 spots show up in the lead-up to its theatrical release. As always, we’ll fine tune out the noise and bring you the content that’s most relevant in the grand scheme of things. Stay tuned to Appocalypse.
Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom arrives in theaters in the US and worldwide on June 22, 2018. In the United Kingdom, it releases this week.
