    It's fucking awful. All I see is another ridiculous CGI fest... Didn't someone from the production team run their mouth about the number of animatronics built for this film?

    There are things I love and things I hate with this one. And yeah, CGI fest, PLUS it looks like The Lost World all over again. I will be seeing it but I doubt I will love it as it looks like a typical sequel.

    I dunno, I just don't feel Jurassic Park when watching these trailers. Feels more like the usual, mindless CGI summer blockerbuster fest. The soul is gone. Jurassic World at least had some soul in it... though most of it was built upon nostalgia of the original movie and seeing a fully functional park.

    I rather see a movie that goes back and follows Site B and it's downfall. I guess technically it would be set before, during, after Jurassic Park and before The Lost World. I wanted to see a movie about John Hammond's, Dr. Wu's, and INGEN's struggle to make the park and create dinosaurs and all the dark genetic shit that it took before we got the pretty island resort. The Lost World book touches upon this. To follow a younger John Hammond trying to achieve his dream while his partner secretly wants the spotlight. Leading to the eventual downfall of Site B, which would take place around the same time of the events of Jurassic Park's incident and the hurricane that hit and wrecked havoc to both islands. What happened to the folks working on Site B before they had to abandon it all? Take unused moments from the books and incorporate it into the story. There's plenty of left out material. Hell, you could even have it that has Nedry was sabotaging the park, Dodgson and his crew from the 2nd book head to Site B under the cover of chaos to steal the dinosaur eggs as a back up plan if Nedry failed and introduce new characters and, of course, the hero/dinosaur loving member of the Site B team out to stop Dodgson from robbing the place.

    But that's the lame fanboy of the original books in me.

    But Chris Pratt has a pet dinosaur!!! Isn't that way more interesting of story to explore???

    I'm in the same boat. This looks ridiculous. "Okay. You guys. What if they have to fight ANOTHER genetically modified dinosaur? And what if we give it creepy long villain hands this time?? Where'd everybody go?"

    Congratulations, you've just pitched Jurassic Park: Amber and Blood, coming to the theaters July 2021, featuring Chris Hemsworth as young Hammond.

    Jurassic Park: Amber And Blood... I'll take that title over Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom :P

    I'd probably pick Colin Firth or Martin Freeman as John Hammond to be honest. Younger than JP1 Hammond, but not too much. Steven Yeun as Dr. Wu.

    ...OK i might be in a minority here...but i really liked this new trailer over the original one. My expectations are low (JW wasn't a great film but it was fun) but i'm slightly more excited for this now.

    At a glance I thought you'd said MORGAN Freeman as John Hammond. Know what? I'd still 100% see that if they just committed to it.

    @ImTheWiseJanitor hahahaha! Well, we all know Mr. Morgan Freeman can nail any role. Just imagine his sweet, sensual voice saying "Welcome to Jurassic Park."

    Perhaps he can have another role in this film. Be one of INGEN's board members being like "What the hell are you doing, John? This idea is out of control."

    Open up with young John Hammond as a kid watching the original black and white Lost World movie adaptation in awe. You can see his over excitement about dinosaurs much to his parents' annoyance. Asking a million different questions and spouting a million different facts by the minute. The big build up to him turning to his parents who are half paying attention and him stating with confidence "One day, I am going to bring dinosaurs back to the world!" Zoom up to his eyes, cut to older eyes as you can see some years have past, camera pulls out and reveals John Hammond doing his little flee circus crap to a small crowd of people. A little girl squealing in delight and tugging at her mother "Mommy, can you see the flees? I can see the flees!" This is not the life John planned.

    In the original book, when John was first experimenting with genetics and cloning, didn't he have like a tiny elephant he brought around to investors? This is when he first tried to make like consumer biologicals, but the elephant had temper problems or something. I think Gennaro even was in thepicture at this point. But he got enough money invested into INGEN to do what he wanted and bought a ton of amber and found Dr. Wu to help him bring his vision.

    The advertising for the movie just isn't connecting with me, that's all.

    Well... the animation still looks terrible, there's just too much of it. That dino grin at 1:22... *shrug* You ever seen a crocodile, turtle or chameleon expressing such elaborate facial movements?

    I'm not feeling anything I've seen at all. It looks like a joke. It's amazing how the dinosaurs in the original movie look and feel realer than the ones in these new movies. The CGI is just overboard now and has become a comic book movie. The dinosaurs just don't feel real.

    some things I like a lot, some things I hate... but isn't this exactly what people hated about TLW blown up into a full 2h movie? And am I the only one that thinks the T-Rex is a tad small?

    and that raptor grin has been there in Jurassic World already, not a big fan of it either. Nor am I a fan of those Indo-somethings. This one and the Indominus have something on their eyes that makes them look like an old witch or something. It's hard to put my finger on it, but compared to their equivalent they look like the drag-queen version with too much make up. A desperate attempt to make them look fiendish or something. I don't know...

    Jurassic Park 1-3 are my top fav movies ever probably. So fun and remind me of my childhood. Didnt feel Jurassic World too much, hope the second one isnt as cheesy.

    You should watch the trailer. It looks like it's going to be total garbage.

    Saw it yesterday and thourougly enjoyed it! Way more than Jurassic World to be honest, yet the movie still has major flaws.

    My major concern with this one is the same as with JW. The idea of having hybrids might be a logical progression of story to showcase man's need for bigger, louder, stronger, yet it degrades the franchise to what it tried to avoid with the first film - being a monster movie. These animals behave rather realistically and even the hybrids still have that in them, yet the action scenes wheter it's with the Indoraptor or any other of the carnivores is just so over the top. And that is the movies weakest point: the action, as it's overbloated and really sticks out like a sore thumb as J.A. managed to sneak in some rather cool and eerie scenes as well which I would have loved to see way more of.

    Well, what else can you say? I liked the fact that it was darkest JP movie to date and the Indoraptor actually functions quite good and looks great on screen. The actors all do their job, nothing more, nothing less and Goldblum is just being Goldblum, which is fantastic again but way too short. Also the beginning is very cool, but also a tad too much. Less would have been more.

    On the other hand the CGI was pretty bad in places and extraordinarily great to look at in other moments - the T-Rex is an absolute show stealer and of course it all comes down to the Raptors as the franchises secret main actor again.

    Oh and that "twist"? Well, they build it up nicely, but the reveal was very much in vein of "ah okay, wow, jeez... oh well, got other things to focus on, bye!".

    I really appreacite the movie makers to have stepped away from actually weaponizing the dinosaurs in terms of hi-tech, yet I wonder where the next film will lead us as things again play out like a neverending story.

    Overall: great summer blockbuster, great Dinosaur action, but of course it lacks the soul of the first 2 and to some extent even third film. If they really bring back Sam Neil and Laura Dern I truly wonder what possible role they could play other than being the ones telling the others "ha, well, been through that already...". We shall see...
