This trailer feels so off, and showcases too much of the one volcano scene, too much of the "Remember Blue?!?!?!", and too much of random scenes, rather than give a sense of the film as a whole. If the whole film is explosive set-piece after explosive set-piece, I can't help but feel that Trevorrow and Connelly don't understand what people enjoyed about the original, or even "Lost World" and "III" to an extent - they are about realistic plausibility in the established scientific story world, with tangible and realistic characters.
This trailer hints at nothing but Michael Bay-esque set pieces and grandeur. It feels wrong. Positives, though - I love Bayona, and I am stoked to see him at the director's helm. He is an atmospheric visionary, and will likely bring some excellent elements to it. I just fear for that script, mannnnn.
Also, as much as I pick it apart, of course I am gonna be there opening night, because I am an avid consumer of JP, and I have got to see everything that comes out of the series with eager eyes.
