The New Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom Trailer Serves Up Big Dinos and Big Questions

It’s hard to believe that when Jurassic World arrived two summers ago, the movie seemed like a Tyrannosaurus-sized risk: The last film in the series, 2001’s Jurassic Park III, was a regrettable, forgettable mishmash of weirdo ideas (like the talking-Raptor dream sequence) and familiar-feeling action scenes, and sent the once-stomping franchise out with a limp. Returning to the Jurassic world after more than a decade, with a largely unknown writer-director (Colin Trevorrow) at the helm, was the kind of big-budget experiment that would have made even John Hammond worriedly hold on to his butt.

Yet World wound up becoming not only one of the biggest movies of the year, but of all time, yielding its own mini-meme, and completing Chris Pratt’s once-unthinkable conversion from likable sitcom schlub to lean-and-mean franchise star. World also engineered countless conversations about its often-ding-a-lingish treatment of female characters, with Bryce Dallas Howard’s ludicrous footwear becoming a particularly ‘saur subject). It was the first billion-dollar blockbuster of the problematic era—a digitally advanced, future-hinting spectacle that also felt weirdly stuck in the past.

Judging by the first trailer for next summer’s Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, the scientists behind the Jurassic series have decided to address some of the World‘s biggest problems head-on. For one, Howard’s Claire Dearing isn’t wearing high heels. For another, this installment seems more focused on the big questions and ethical implications of what humanity should do after bringing back pre-historic beasts, with Jeff Goldblum’s Dr. Ian Malcolm reemerging to remind everyone that “these creatures were here before us, and if we’re not careful, they’re going to be here after.” He also, naturally, throws in a good ol’ “life finds a way,” proving that there are some discoveries that not even chaos theory can explain. We’ll see if he’s right when Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom opens in June.

Benedict Cumberbatch is ‘The Grinch’ in weird-ass new trailer

The studio behindthe minions is gearing up for Christmas early. Illumination’s first trailer for The Grinch dropped in early March, and now the second sneak peek previews even more of the holiday thief.

Benedict Cumberbatch’s Grinch is far more cuddly than the (vaguely nauseating) live-action Jim Carrey portrayal.

And, as for the story, the remake is taking Whoville to a seemingly lighter place than the original. Max is filling the role of man’s best friend rather than subservient mutt and the Grinch isn’t rising to even Despicable Me meanness levels. This might be explained by the Grinch’s new orphanage backstory, showcased in the trailer, which is sure to get mixed reactions from Dr. Seuss purists. (But look at that cute little baby Grinch! He has such little hands!)

Looks like we’re in for way more than twelve days of Christmas marketing—The Grinch doesn’t come to theaters until November 9th.

Watch Disney’s new live-action ‘Dumbo’ trailer

Published

Disney’s live-action Dumbo remake has released its new teaser trailer and by gum, he flies.

Featuring the original 1941 film’s signature ballad “Baby Mine,” the trailer for the Tim Burton-directed venture introduces our trunked little friend in a pile of hay, found by Colin Farrell, as Holt Farrier, and his young family.

You’ll spy Michael Keaton as ringmaster V. A. Vandemere, Eva Green as performer Colette Marchant, a snippet of the acid-washed “Pink Elephants” scene, and our first glimpse of Dumbo flying like a boss. Oh, and no derogatory, racist crow characters to be seen.

To be that guy, here’s hoping there’s at least a slight moment in the film that discourages the inclusion of animals in circuses. Fingers crossed, eh?
