While 2015's Jurassic World was a massive hit – taking in more than $1 billion worldwide – its reception among critics and a certain segment of the audience was mixed-to-negative. (I thought it was never more or less than fine.) So the sequel, Fallen Kingdom, hasn't had quite the same anticipation level. But this trailer should change all that.
The trailer also focuses a lot on dinosaurs stalking and hunting people, bringing back memories of the few things the sequels succeeded at. But this one has a secret weapon those didn't: Spanish director J.A. Bayona, who made his feature debut with supremely spooky The Orphanage, and has gradually directed bigger budget movies, including A Monster Calls and the Oscar-nominated The Impossible.
Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom opens Friday, June 22.
