“Life finds a way.” It’s one of the key messages for those meddling with nature who thought they could escape any consequences in the original Jurassic Park. And now, it appears to be the tagline for Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, which is now the official title of the follow-up to 2015’s thrilling Jurassic World. The film comes out one year from today: June 22, 2018.
“With all of the wonder, adventure and thrills synonymous with one of the most popular and successful franchises 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,” reads Universal’s announcement of the film’s title and it’s teaser one-sheet.
Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard are returning, joined by co-stars James Cromwell, Ted Levine, Justice Smith, Geraldine Chaplin, Daniella Pineda, Toby Jones, Rafe Spall, while BD Wong and Jeff Goldblum reprise their roles from the original film. It was Goldblum’s character, mathematician Ian Malcolm, who uttered the prominent, life-affirming line.
J.A. Bayona is directing Fallen Kingdom, while Jurassic World director Colin Trevorrow, busy with Star Wars: Episode IX, remains executive producer alongside Steven Spielberg.
