Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom trailer only took from the first hour

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom J.A. Bayona

I have to admit, I found the recently released trailer for JURASSIC WORLD: FALLEN KINGDOM to be somewhat underwhelming. Sure, the dinosaurs look as cool as ever and this time there's a volcano erupting in the midst of the action, but when it comes down to it the trailer only showed what appeared to be yet another "people run from dinosaurs on an island" film. It looked exactly the same as the previous four movies, but with a volcano. I was hoping this sequel would try to do something different. If the series can't do anything more than just have people run around on islands, I'm going to continue hoping they'll go back to the original JURASSIC PARK 4 idea and give these dinosaurs some weapons. I'd rather see Raptorman than JURASSIC PARK AGAIN AGAIN AGAIN AGAIN.

Thankfully, FALLEN KINGDOM's producer/co-writer Colin Trevorrow took to Twitter to assure fans, "Everything in the trailer is from the first 57 minutes."

Directed by J.A. Bayona from a screenplay by Trevorrow and Derek Connolly, the film stars Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Daniella Pineda, Toby Jones, Rafe Spall, Justice Smith, Ted Levine, Geraldine Chaplin, Brooke Norbury, and B.D. Wong, with Jeff Goldblum as Dr. Ian Malcolm.

The synopsis: 

It’s been four years since theme park and luxury resort Jurassic World was destroyed by dinosaurs out of containment.  Isla Nublar now sits abandoned by humans while the surviving dinosaurs fend for themselves in the jungles.
When the island’s dormant volcano begins roaring to life, Owen (Chris Pratt) and Claire (Bryce Dallas Howard) mount a campaign to rescue the remaining dinosaurs from this extinction-level event.  Owen is driven to find Blue, his lead raptor who’s still missing in the wild, and Claire has grown a respect for these creatures she now makes her mission. Arriving on the unstable island as lava begins raining down, their expedition uncovers a conspiracy that could return our entire planet to a perilous order not seen since prehistoric times.
With all of the wonder, adventure and thrills synonymous with one of the most popular and successful series in cinema history, this all-new motion-picture event sees the return of favorite characters and dinosaurs—along with new breeds more awe-inspiring and terrifying than ever before.  Welcome to Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom.

The mention of a conspiracy in there gives me hope that the movie will be more interesting and have fresher ideas than the trailer indicates.

We'll find out for sure when JURASSIC WORLD: FALLEN KINGDOM is released on June 22, 2018.
