Jurassic World ''Fallen Kingdom''

I hope this isn't too unpopular of an opinion, but this trailer sets up really bad expectations for me. The BRoll teaser released the other day had an interesting, darker, horror-esque element and tone to it that seemed really interesting, consistent, and necessary for story progression: the potential for something more serious and tangible, rather than the off-set tone and unrealistic nature of "Jurassic World."

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.
