Not the one to lose out on the chance to capitalize on the biggest sport game in America, Universal Pictures doled out its own extended Superbowl Spot for this summer’s highly anticipated Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom. The trailer packs in quite a lot in its short 1 minute 26 second run time while also giving us a glimpse at some of the movie’s horror elements that were found lacking in the first trailer that aired back in November.
Once again, the trailer doesn’t give a lot of the plot away although it’s clear by now that the first act of the movie is going to revolve around a rescue mission to save the remaining dinosaurs trapped in the face of a volcanic eruption on Isla Nublar. What’s new here is a lot of scary sequences set within the confines of a house featuring the main cast of Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard along with the supporting players that seem to deliver on the numerous promises of director J. A. Bayona and writer / producer Colin Trevorrow of a more intimate and scary approach towards the second movie. All the more same, it’s equally disappointing that the trailer spoils several moments that could’ve made for great shocks when experienced first in theaters. Universal seems to be going all hands in in its bid to grab eyeballs and get as many members in theaters as possible. The trailer’s horror heavy approach also seems to stem from criticism of the first trailer which revolved largely around spectacle over substance.
Once again, you can catch the trailer in the link embedded above. Stay tuned to Appocalypse for more Superbowl Spots as well as our thoughts on the same. Meanwhile, don’t hesitate to let us know yours in the comments below.
