‘Jurassic World 2’ Finally Gets a Title and a Very Serious Poster
Today marks the one-year mark until we get the sequel to the 2015 box-office-crusher Jurassic World, and Universal wanted to do something special to commemorate the occasion. Now look down at that glass of water you’ve got close at hand. Tiny ripples in the center, a distant thunderous thudding in the distance. New information is close at hand.
In a tweet this morning, the official Jurassic World account posted an image of a new poster emblazoned with the oft-quoted line of dialogue “Life finds a way.” More surprising, however, was the reveal of the official post-colon subtitle for the sequel film:
There you have it, Fallen Kingdom is now the phrase that people will have to begrudgingly say out loud to box-office workers in summer 2018. What this could possibly refer to is now up to us to guess. Is the fallen kingdom the kingdom of man, our reign on Earth coming to an end in the face of multiplying dino-hordes? Or does the title refer to the animal kingdom, as they will fall before the violent impulses of men? Could it be neither of these, and just a tough-sounding combination of words, a.k.a. the Transformers Titling Method™?
At any rate, not much more is known about the film. Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard will reprise their leading roles from the 2015 original, and in a forceful suggestion that a kind god exists on this plane, Jeff Goldblum will return to the series to resuscitate Dr. Ian Malcolm. Behind the camera, Juan Antonio Bayona of A Monster Calls and The Impossible will take over for the original film’s helmer, The Book of Henry director Colin Trevorrow (a phrase he’ll have to hear for the rest of his natural life).
Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom hits heaters June 22, 2018.
