The long awaited second full-length glimpse at the fourth instalment in the Jurassic Park franchise has finally landed online. It may not be as poignant or cleverly-crafted as the first, but there’s certainly enough dinosaur-driven action to make you forget.
Focussing largely on Chris Pratt’s lead Owen Grady and his raptor-wrangling antics, this follow-up trailer delves even deeper into the film’s plotting, giving an even better look at the fully-formed park and the beasts that lurk inside. And from the looks of things, the genetically engineered super-dino Indominus Rex will be feasting on a little more than just the other attractions.
Relatively inexperienced second-timer Colin Trevorrow, stepping in for series-creator Steven Spielberg, seems to be taking this newest effort in a slightly different direction visually with a lot more CGI than some fans may hope for. But with Chris Pratt proving instantly likeable already, it’s difficult to imagine a finished-product that doesn’t ooze with charm.
It may be lacking that trademark Ian Malcolm wit, but Jurassic World looks to be, at the very least, a hugely fan summer movie.
The film is released in the UK on 11th June, a full day ahead of the US.
