The wait is over! The Jurassic World sequel officially has a title, and it’s very ominous.
On Thursday (June 22), Universal Pictures revealed both the title for its upcoming Jurassic World sequel as well as the first poster for the film, which is set to be released next year. From the looks of the poster and the sounds of the title, it’s going to be a dark movie. Really, would you expect anything less?
So, what’s the sequel called? Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, that’s what! While the sequel’s storyline is still being kept under wraps, Fallen Kingdom pretty much solidifies that this is definitely not going to be a happy and upbeat movie about dinosaurs and humans living in harmony.
In fact, besides the fact that we know both Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard are returning for the sequel, and that the original dinosaur Rexy, the T-Rex, will also play a part in the film, very few details have been released with regard to the story of the follow-up film. Although, Pratt has previously said that the second installment will definitely be scarier than Jurassic World.
Now, however, the speculation can begin based on what Fallen Kingdom implies — maybe it’s referring to the fall of the dinosaurs? The poster is simple, yet it too gives off an ominous vibe.
The use of black and grey colors, a stone-looking logo, and the words, “Life finds a way,” mixed with the red specks seem to indicate that fire will come into play somehow.
Sound off in the comments below and let us know what you think is going to happen when Pratt and Howard team back up. Will they be the ones causing destruction, or falling victim to the flames and falling kingdom?
Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom will hit theaters on June 22, 2018.
