‘Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom’ Behind the Scenes Video: A Darker, Intense ‘Jurassic’

Universal Pictures has released a new behind the scenes video from Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom. The new Jurassic World film arrives 25 years after the original Jurassic Park, and in the video Bryce Dallas Howard explains, “The first part of this movie is classic Jurassic, and then you go into this far more dangerous world.”

Jurassic World was a celebration of something that we all love. This movie is different. This movie is pushing something that we know forward into the future,” says Colin Trevorrow, director of Jurassic World and co-writer/executive producer of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom.

Director J.A. Bayona (The Impossible) describes the film as claustrophic. “It has this kind of gothic element and you start to build up the tension in a very different way,” offers Bayona.

Chris Pratt reveals that in the new action adventure film audiences will learn more about Owen’s special relationship with Blue, the Velociraptor. The new footage drops further hints about how that relationship plays into the action in the 2018 visit to the world of dinosaurs.

In addition to Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard the cast includes Jeff Goldblum, BD Wong, James Cromwell, Ted Levine, Justice Smith, Geraldine Chaplin, Daniella Pineda, Toby Jones, Rafe Spall, and Isabella Sermon. Steven Spielberg and Colin Trevorrow executive produce, and Frank Marshall, Patrick Crowley, and Belén Atienza served as producers.

Universal Pictures is set to open Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom in theaters on June 22, 2018.

The Plot: 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 (Pratt) and Claire (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.

With all of the wonder, adventure and thrills synonymous with one of the most popular and successful series in cinema history, this all-new motion-picture event sees the return of favorite characters and dinosaurs—along with new breeds more awe-inspiring and terrifying than ever before. Welcome to Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom.
