A couple years back, Jurassic World hit theaters and set the world on fire. Whether your liked the film or not, there’s no denying that it reinvigorated the long-dormant franchise. No, it may not have had the film gravitas of the original Jurassic Park, but when all said and done, it brought the popcorn movie thrills, and generally pleased the mainstream audiences. The film has since gone down as the fourth highest grossing flick of all time.
Since then, we knew that not only a sequel, but an entire franchise resurgence was inevitable. It wasn’t long before it was confirmed that a June 2018 release was confirmed, but in true studio style, the name of the film was kept under wraps. For the life of me, I still don’t understand the reason behind keeping the names secret. Perhaps it has to do with spreading out the hype for the film over a longer period, or maybe they just take a long time to come up with the names.
Regardless, Universal Pictures has released the official title and poster for Jurassic World 2. Check it out below:
So Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom is the title they settled on for this movie. Perhaps even more of note is the familiar tagline on the poster that reads “life finds a way.” We look forward to seeing what this fallen kingdom is, but more than anything, I’m looking forward to seeing just how they plan on working Jeff Goldblum’s Ian Malcolm into the story.
We have one year to find out.
Here's a description of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom:
