Dr. Malcolm Welcomes Us to the Age of Jurassic World In New Teaser

Dr. Ian Malcolm is dropping the truths. The good doctor has seen a lot of bad ideas in his life, but this thing has gotten out of hand. We did not heed his warnings on Isla Nublar, and now it may be too late. The dinosaurs are no longer contained in a new Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom teaser, and that can have destructive consequences for our world.

A sage Dr. Malcolm (Jeff Goldblum) is back on the scene, testifying that man and beast are soon to live side by side. With the way things are going, man will not win.

“We resurrected the most lethal predators this planet has ever seen,” Malcolm recounts. “We have entered a new era. Welcome to Jurassic World.”

And there we have it. A new age of evolution in which dinosaur DNA is changing more rapidly than humans. Scientists have begun to breed Indo-Raptors and a T-Rex is on the loose, which can’t be good for humanity. They are big, strong, and scary as hell.

Similar to movie 2 of the Jurassic Park series, The Lost World, Fallen Kingdom brings the dinosaurs to the mainland. They’re climbing rooftops, getting into people’s bedrooms, and challenging some of the strongest species we have alive today. A lion gets an up-close look at the T-Rex and it is lucky there’s a ravine between them. The dino completely dwarfs that cat.

What differentiates the Jurassic World journey from Jurassic Park is that there were responsible scientists this round. Rather than the greedy Hammond (Richar Attenborough) churning out animals he knows nothing about for a buck, we have Owen (Chris Pratt) and Claire (Bryce Dallas Howard) who actually respect the creatures. Beyond that, Owen loves the raptors he bred and raised. Therefore, it is particularly heartbreaking to hear Owen say, “This has to end.” Sure, things are getting crazy, but that almost guarantees we’ll have to see him say goodbye to something he holds dear.

A new featurette explores the science of the film and Owen’s relationship with the dinosaurs. Jurassic Park director Stephen Spielberg recalls the vision of the 1993 original exploring the possible reality of the dinosaur resurrection. Jurassic World directors Colin Trevorrow and JA Bayona describe pushing the evolution into the future and adding a new level of terror.

Pratt and Howard reveal more of the film’s plot. Their characters, Owen and Clair enough about avoiding a second extinction to return to the island and save the raptors. However, a corrupt agency takes advantage of their good nature. The reconnaissance is secretly intended to sell the creatures, most likely as weapons. By the end it is difficult to say which is more dangerous, dinosaurs or humans.

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom premieres June 22.
